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

June 10th 2016 - new day, new energy and a job interview
Waking up after 10 hours sleep and feeling more like a human and not still stuck in a "half asleep" daze, it is a pretty great feeling!
This morning i am going to start my day the same way i ended my day yesterday i.e with the exact same meal. Yesterday it was basically just throw together what we had, so i put oatmeal, flax seeds, vanilla stevia drops, water and spirulina into a pot and let that cook. And then topped the oatmeal with peanuts, raisins, banana and dark chocolate. It was basically one green mess due to the spirulina but the combination tasted great and with stevia drops (or if you use another sweetner or sugar) you dont taste the spirulina. As i mentioned a while ago i bought a package containing spirulina and hemp protein powder, and as i was told after i had bought... hemp protein powder doesnt taste so great. They were right. I can barely mix in one table spoon into a smoothie or mixed with water and even tried mixing into banana ice cream, but each time i just want to throw the food away as the hemp protein powder makes it taste so awful, hahaha. But i will continue trying, but not buy that powder again!!! This is what happens when you try to act 'healthy' or be a health guru and you arent actually XD
And with spirulina it does have a certain taste which isnt exactly the tastiest. So far i have taken spirulina shots i.e either mixed with oat milk or with water, i've added it to smoothies and nice cream and now oatmeal... and it works best in oatmeal with lots of stevia!!
Just a little tip from me, hahahah.
Today i have a job interview at a food store, so feeling nervous over that but hoping it goes well and i get offered a job! And today i am also going to meet my aunt for a coffee and maybe go to the cinema with my boyfriend, depending on how my energy levels are at that point! But i am hoping for a wonderful friday anyway, now when i feel optimistic and energetic!!!
I hope you all have a lovely Friday as well, and enjoy your weekend!!!
