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:

Making home made donuts & donut recipe

My plans for the day changed when I ended up super tired after my crossfit workout and all I wanted was to rest. So that was exactly what I did when I came home, until I began thinking it would be fun to try to make donuts as I had seen a simple recipe.

During the time that the dough was rising (an hour) I decided to make pancakes with the few ingredients we had at home. So cornflour, coconut milk, egg and butter Ohh and sugar ;) ...  and they turned out really good. It was sort of experimental as I didn't use a recipe or didn't measure but they turned out really good!

And then it was back to donut making and forming the donuts and then frying them. ... which could have gone terribly wrong as I had the heat a little too high :/

The end results? 5 of 12 had to be thrown away because they were too doughy on the inside.  But the other 7
... well I've tried one or two (I. E half of each) and they were ok... the longer they stayed in the fridge the better they tasted! Also the melted chocolate and sprinkles = delicious :) super yummy even if I wasn't craving donuts, more that I wanted to trying making them! The recipe will be below :)

Now it's time to watch the elf with my sister and then sleep because tomorrow it's school again... We aren't really doing anything but 2 more obligatory lessons and I get my grade on Wednesday! !

I hope you all have a lovely evening and a great new week!!

Ohh and yes... behind the scenes I like to eat vegetables while I bake 😂😂😁 (not really. . Just this once I was craving peas!)


  1. hint... deep fry them for a minute and a half. I know... there is a lot of oil in there, but it is important for them to cook thoroughly :)

  2. hi issy, looking for some help as you answered another one of my questions so well. my question is about anxiety around fear foods. im recovering from a restrictive eating disorder i hate having fear foods in the house but mum lives on them. they include ice cream, lollies biscuits choclate etc. The problem is they provoke a lot of anxiety in me and its become a binge trigger; i hate having these foods around i need to eat them until they are gone. i dont really eat them becuase i like them even, i just think about what will happen if i have access to them (which is proving to be true!!) sometimes i eat to my hunger cues but its never anything nutritious because i feel like im always working on a project to get rid of them. the binges are becoming worse and its scary as ive never had a prblem before and dont want to create a pattern. how do get over the overwhelming anxiety over having these foods around?

  3. You look lovely Izzy and so do your donuts :) Xx
