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: firstname.lastname@example.org

Wednesday 4th November
Trying to start a post is one of the difficult parts of blogging at times, as well as making a post title... so for now i will just use this smooth introduction as i have nothing better to write!!
It's school time today and i am not feeling tired or unmotivated, infact it i find it kind of nice that school forces me to get out of the house for those hours each day and to do something different.... to not just be at home or the gym (even if i love both places, my brain does need more stimulation). However because the course is just 9 weeks and it is so fast paced meaning that there is little time to talk or get to know anyone.... i dont know anyone in the class. Granted,there were 40 people who started the course and now there are only 15 so a few people have dropped off.... or maybe they are studying at home, though because the course is a "go to class" course and not a distance course it would be strange if people did that. But to the actual point, i dont know anyone in the class.... not that it really bothers me as everyone is different ages and such but also everyone is there because they have choosen to study the course and so their aim is to study and pass the course, or i am guessing that is there reason anyway. No idea why people would be there afterwards if they didnt atleast want to pass the course and have a grade in the course for further studying (or just knowledge).
Alot of school talk when all i really wanted to say was that its school time this morning and it doesnt seem like such a bad thing today XD
Onto other subjects.... its 26 days until my birthday. Its ok to start counting down, right? And also..... i think i might start a short 4 week crossfit course (with 8 lessons) as a birthday present. I remember last year i said i would like crossfit lessons for my birthday but it was super expensive so i knew that it was highly unlikely, but then a few days ago i found this deal where you get 8 lessons in 4 weeks on the basics of crossfit and i have read about the people who own and work at the crossfit box and they are all really good, so i decided to ask my family if they could get me that for my birthday. And luckily they hadnt bought me anything yet so i think that is my birthday present.... I did get a confirmation email so i guess i get to start, but i'm not sure yet, haha. I am super super excited about it. It starts in 2 weeks time and i can't wait, i've always wanted to try crossfit but its been too expensive and i havent dared do any of the moves with added weight as i havent wanted to injure myself. So now hopefully i learn all the basics and techniques so that i might be able to practise on my own. It will also be a sort of different workout type, though not really, but i think they will be more intense anyway!
Now it's school time and then i will see what i do for the rest of the day!
