Life without Anorexia

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

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 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 now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Monday morning ramble of thoughts

Good morning :)

Above is some Monday morning humor... or well, I can relate to all of them.  Hahaha.

This morning was definitely one of those days where I woke and thought "do I really need to go to the school?" 90% of my mind screamed no... go back to sleep, but that rational and knowledgeable 10% of me told me, put on your lamp ansld put your alarm on snooze for 5 minutes. And so that's what I did. ... and now I'm awake and ready for the day!

As usual a bunch of studying today... Infact,  i had a nightmare lastnight where some of our far off deadlines had been pushed backwards so they were due tomorrow and we had things that had to be done, and I was panicking in my dream. That school related stress nightmares.

 But to be honest, I am coping well... for being me! Trying to Priotize sleep (fell asleep at 9pm yesterday as I was so tired). Studying one thing at a time and not trying to do everything at once,  and also going out for runs or walks in nature  and of course less caffeine which is also going well! So, so far i dont feel ovehwlemed by stress or anything even if there is alot to do. But I feel that I have more time to study now as I'm not surrounded by friends, family, boyfriend and don't have to feel guilt over the gave that I'm studying and not with them. But also I love how many library's there are here...  the best place for me to study is the library!!!

It's important to find your techniques for styling and where you study best - if you're in school! Just because one technique works for another person doesn't mean it will work for you. 

If you have any study tips, share them.... I'm sure others might appreciate them :)


For now... its school time!

And also, I've tried chain pudding and it is sooo good! My new favourite breakfast and snack :) I mix the seeds with soy milk and mix and leave over night (iI make 2 or 3 bowls at a time so I have for snacks during the day) and then top with whatever. But soo good, I'm going to have to buy a few more boxes of chia seeds! 

I might post some different over night chia seed recipes if you like? (P.s they are sort of jelly like so they're a kind of love - hate food) ;)

  1. Chia seeds are the "in thing" here - I brought some porridge with chia seed and berries the other day. Also brought a packet of seeds - says on the packet sprinkle on cereal or yogurt, but I had no idea they go like jelly as you said in your post. I imagine that would be really nice so I will have to try your tip about soaking them overnight in milk.
    Any more suggestions would be great!
    Glad to hear things are going well for you - you seem really happy :)
    have a good day!
