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!

Running, happiness and my job interview

Friday afternoon and right now I am high on endorphins!

So far such a good day!!! My started with plans to head out to the island where my step dad's parents live and spend the weekend there! And my boyfriend is going to follow with as well which is fun! So I'm looking forward to spending the weekend in the sun!

After that I headed to the gym with my sister and I thought I would do some cardio while I figured out what I wanted to workout. But then I got into a running flow and well, why stop when I have so much energy. So even if running wasn't the plan I did 70 minutes running on the treadmill and I can say that i can't even remember the last time I spent such a long time on the treadmill or even ran that far on the treadmill. Also the fact that I haven't even run 5km in a while, hahah. But I had so much energy and half way through I got a phone call asking me to go on a job interview next week, and after that I ran with a huge smile on my face!

After my run today I definitely want to get back into regular running and next year I'll aim to run another half marathon if I can keep up with my running training. However what stopped me from running longer was that my lungs were on fire... so that sucks. Often it's a combination of my hip, knees and lungs, haha.

Then after my run I got ready and headed to my job interview. I was very nervous beforehand but it felt good during the interview and I just felt like "yes... If I get the job I can't wait to start working!" Even if most of my summer would be spent working I would love that! However they want  someone to work during autumn as well and as I can't say 100% that I can do that, I'm not sure if I will get the job. But I am a job interview wiser and conquered a fear of mine so it's win-win, but if I get the job I would be super happy! But otherwise I have my next interview next week and that job is closer to home so that would be great as well!

So far today feels awesome. I have energy, I feel happy and feel positive. Like things are falling into place somewhat, like a fell these fears and unknowns are beginning to be less unknown! Now I'm just excited to see what will happen and how my summer will be :)

I hope you all have a great day and a great weekend!

And I'm sorry for the lack of advice posts at the moment, haven't had the time or motivation.... but I'll try find something to post about which isn't just personal /my life posts :)


  1. Congratulations on the job interviews, and I commend your good attitude about them! The only way to conquer your fears is to face them, and every interview provides you with experience so even if you don't get the job you are still getting ahead. I was going to comment with some interview tips or advice, but it sounds like your head is already in the right place :) I've had good and bad interviews, and it took some time to learn not to measure my worth by their response. Feel good about the good ones, learn from the bad ones and laugh it off. I hope you get some good news, i know you have been wanting to work for some time. And any job is generally good for mental health, as it provides purpose, structure, self-pride, feelings of self-sufficiency, and an income to boot! Good luck!

    1. Thank you :) Well if you have any good job interview tips you can always email me or comment, that would always be appreciated as i just sort of "wing it", haha. Thank you :) I do hope i get a job somewhere as it would add structure to my life which is much needed in my life at the moment and so i dont feel so "lost", as well as i actually enjoy working when i do it!

      I hope you have a lovely weekend :)

  2. What a difference a day makes! I am so glad you feel happier and more positive today:)
    Sounds like your interview went well, I hope you get it even if it means working for a shorter time. But even if you don`t, its all good experience. What is your job interview next week for?
    Good news at the gym! I`m glad you`ve rediscovered your running as you`ve said before how much you love it - hopefully you're be able to do it more often now you're feeling better.
    Have a lovely weekend away on the island - relax and unwind, and have fun!
    Look forward to hearing all about it when you get back!
