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:

My goals for the rest of the year and for the next year

It's Monday and also tomorrow there is only one month left of this year, crazy! So what better timing than to write a few goals for the next month and also for the next year, i.e until my next birthday. What do i want to achieve or what do i want to do in the next year?

But also 31 days, alot can change in that time. A month might not feel like alot or you might think, nothing can change in a month, but alot can change in just 24 hours. You just need to want to make the change, so i think YOU should also sit down and write your goals for the next 31 days and stick hard to them and see what can happen :)

My goals for the rest of the year:

Study hard for my national test - but also have breaks.
Pass my national test.
Replace energy drinks with green tea.
Find the positives of each day
Make sure to get atleast one sleep in per week
Listen to my body and if i am very tired, be ok with saying no to things or no to leaving the house.
Keep up with my CF care and medication taking

My goals for the next 365 days!
Not be scared to step out of my comfort zone and do different things.
Get into university and study nutrition OR, allow myself to take a break if i feel that that is what is necessary
Get a job - if i dont study, or just a weekend job
Recover from depression, in whatever way necessary
Be positive and happy
Get my own apartment somewhere
Do alot more online social work and continue helping people
Read more books
Run races - and maybe run another half marathon
Dare to do new things - and tick things off of my bucketlist
Bake more and be more creative in the kitchen
Get a new phone or camera and take better pictures!!!
Enjoy living life

These are just some goals i could think of for now, but I am sure i have many more goals!!! If you have any goals you want to share, either to motivate yourself or others, or to keep yourself to your word as you have written it. So comment below if you want to, OR write some goals on a piece of paper to remind yourself of them :)


  1. I love your goals! I`m sure you will obtain them. Mine aren't longterm goals by any means, in fact they are goals just to get me through this week! I have really been struggling with my meal plan just lately and over the weekend actually managed to talk properly about it with my partner - and the outcome was if I manage to follw my meal plan for this week he will -
    - make me a rice pudding for dessert on Saturday-
    - cook a roast dinner on sunday
    - and look into going out for a meal at a nice pub in the coming two weeks!
    so short term goals but I am going to try my hardest to reach them. Have`nt been able to discuss my problems with him until now, but that was me at fault there - not wanting to open up and talk about things. But I`m glad I did because I feel a lot better about things.
    Perhaps in time I will have some longer term goals too!

    1. I think having short term and weekly goals are awesome, then you have something to focus on for the week. I am so glad that you talked to your partner about you struggling and you can get some extra support! Those goals sound awesome and delicious as well :) Focus on your short term goals and know that the short term goals will lead to full recovery and maybe long term goals, but that can be too much to think about when you have alot going on in life as it is. So focus on now and making each day great :)

  2. One 'goal' -- Freedom! X

    1. That is one of the best goals :)

  3. Great post. I need to do this - I agree with the picture, I think my goals are just wishes at the moment and I need to take proper action to succeed. I guess my main goal as always is to recover and find peace with my body image!

    1. You can reach that goal, but sometimes you need smaller goals to reach the big goal. But also to put actions to words :) You can do it!! You just neeed to want to make a change as well.
