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!

Strange study day and 3 meals from today

Hello and good evening everyone :)

Today has been a rather strange day for me... Not that strange or weird things have happened, but that i have felt rather strange today. A little bit out of it and nothing has gone as planned or thought out and my routines and habits have been completely off today, which always makes me feel a little strange.

It started off by sleeping past my alarm and waking up alot later than planned. And usually i am out the door and on my way to school or the gym within 60 minutes of waking up, or 90-120 minutes if i blog in the morning. Today however i ended up getting stuck infront of the computer and had different things to do at home so didnt leave the house until almost 3 hours after waking up which is STRANGE for me. I have usually left the house within 2 hours of waking up, if it isnt that i am sick.

However i packed with me lunch and headed to school and ate my lunch there and did some studying on my own while i waited for my friends to join me. Usually i workout before school  though as we had planned a certain time to study together and i had woken up so late and done other things in the morning i thought i would work out after school. Though as the hours passed by i felt myself getting very tired and got an awful headache as well as getting low blood sugar/hangry, so instead i headed home and made myself a quick 5 minute snack before having to lie down and rest and let the headache pass.

And then it was just to shower an make dinner which i am now going to eat! This day has just flown by and ive felt very strange, also the fact that i never (or rarely) get headaches but i think it might be due to some neck pain/strain. This evening i plan to continue just lying in bed and watching documentaries and tomorrow the plan is to just sit and study at home and try to focus, because when i study with friends its usually just 50% study and 50% sit and talk about other things and begin planning different upcoming events and such, haha, so not the most productive. But atleast its fun to meet friends and be social and get some type of studying done nonetheless!

(Dinner, pretty much the same as lunch! Just eating leftovers for dinner usually.)

How has your day been? Have you eaten anything yummy today? :)


  1. I'm currently obsess with this tricolour chickpea salad that I found at the store! It's super yummy. I add it on top of spinach, veggie, tofu, and rice and it's just sooooo good!

    1. Sounds delicious but even better with some potatoes or sweet potatoes mixed in ;)... but what exactly is a tricolour chickpea salad haha?

    2. Potatoes sound like a good idea ;)
      How do I describe it....mmmm it has normal chickpeas, small brown ones, and small yellow ones mixed with white rice vinegar, lemon juice, red pepper, cilantro, and some other stuff that makes a really tasty sauce!

  2. I have a question, how do you manage being vegan on a college budget and what tacktics do you use to get money in college? Thanks Izzy! :) I really enjoy 😊 your vegan and fitness 💪🏻 posts 💕💕💕

  3. Rice, quinoa and spinach - and best of all its in a microwave pouch that only takes two minutes to heat! The shop is selling a lot of different grain variations so I am having fun trying them all, but this one is my favourite so far.
    I get you about having a "strange" day - sometimes things just don`t go to normal planning and it throws you right out. An evening spent watching documentaries sounds great and I hope you have a better day tomorrow and feel like your usual self again!
