Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

Doing what makes me happy

Crossfit this evening and  by 5 I was tired. I have barely done anything today as I had some unexpected things that I had to do and delayed my schedule so by 3pm I hadn't gotten anything I had planned to do done. The library wasn't open either (strange) and it was far too dark at home so today turned into a non study day. That adds some stress to my life and not having so much social time this week as I am quite far behind with my studies.  But that doesn't bother me so much as I don't feel very much like socialising anyway.

Anyway when it was 7pm it was time to head to crossfit and once I got there I was energized and ready to go. Not to mention that we were doing presses which I love doing and we also did a 16 minute WOD which was tough but so much fun and made me realise how I really do like crossfit. I like the short and intense workouts and being pushed out of my comfort zone. But also I got a lot of appraisal, I mean that is always fun!! I think the first impression I gave was a blonde, spray tanned weak girl but then today I showed that I actually work hard.  I'm not afraid to sweat, push my limits and make weird faces. I'm not about being pretty when I workout. But also I think I surprised the coach as I had good technique and was strong. ... so i mean that's fun.  Compared to last time when I knew I was bad at squats and was reminded of the fact. But ill keep practising at the things im bad at, that's the only way to get better!

If only crossfit wasn't so expensive I would definitely get a card there but of course I don't even know how my spring looks so I can't pay for a year's training there. Now I have 5 more crossfit lessons and I am so glad that I dared step outside of my comfort zone and try it!. Hopefully I can sleep tonight, usually when I workout in the evenings I get so much energy and find it harder to sleep ^-^

I hope you have all had a lovely day and have a great rest of the week :)

  1. Hi!
    I´m so happy for you that the workout made you feel strong and that you got admiration :) I find jerks really hard and a bit scary.
    It´s too bad that you cannot buy a membership at the moment but maybe in the near future you will be able to. Now just absorb all the tips from the coaches so that you can use them at your own workouts. I hope those last 5 classes are as good as this one.

    Have a great Wednesday Izzy!

    Best AT ;)
