Feeling great today after my Pilates workout!! I love switching up my workouts because this year I want to improve on everything from strength to flexibility.
It took SO MUCH WORK to get this lean for me. My middle area is the hardest to deal with and to keep it maintained I absolutely have to follow a clean diet. I've been asked quite a few times why I began losing weight and to be honest the simplest answer is this: I was tired of not feeling good. Not feeling good in my skin, not feeling good physically and mentally, and all around just feeling like crap. I've learned through that years that nutrition truly is the best and only way to lose weight healthy and naturally. I turned my entire menu around - I eat clean and natural, and really try away to stay away from processed foods. It's HARD and I don't think everyone realizes that we are addicted to food!!! Humans naturally are, but if you're going to be addicted to food, be addicted to the right foods Our Earth naturally grows us food for a reason. They are gifts to us and they give us the nutrients and ENERGY we need. I can't even tell how much of a difference I feel in my energy and self when I eat natural foods vs. processed. Fuel your body right and you'll get he results you want

This was me senior year of high school. People would say I look "great" or I was "in shape". They would look at this picture and tell me I look wonderful, but that's not how I felt
No, I did not have the body that someone might think of when they think of disordered eating or obsessive workouts. But that does not mean that I did not struggle. .
If I missed a run, I felt bad about myself and would eat a tiny salad for dinner. I would do ab workouts in my bed before I fell asleep. I would do dips as I watched tv or took a study break. Every second I had to spare was spent doing something to get me "to where I needed to be". .
I looked at this picture today and I got down on myself because I don't look this way anymore. I came back to college and I feel bad about the way I look, but then I remember the pain I went through in order to achieve "that body", and I don't want to go back there. .
Don't think you need to look a certain way in order for your struggles to be valid. Don't think that just because you aren't diagnosed doesn't mean that you don't deserve recognition and support. Don't compare yourself to others and think that they are more deserving than you. I love you, and all of your struggles are valid and heard. Know that. #boporesolutions#tbt#bopo#posibodi#bodyposipanda#changeyourmind#ownyourraw#embraceyourjourney#motivation#inspiration#feminism#feminist#dothehotpants#mybodystory#effyourbeautystandards#selfvalue#chooselife#projectstart#psyougotthis#edwarriors#bdrecovery#recover#loveyourself#trustyourself#selfworth
Mind chatter, monkey mind. Do you ever have your thoughts keep going on and on without stopping?! This is what's known as "the monkey mind". The mind keeps bothering you, just won't get quiet let alone keep stay quiet! Vetiver essential oils is great for that. You can diffuse it at night to keep help your mind become still. You can diffuse it during the day for the same purpose. You can apply it to your four head, to your wrists and rub them together and smell. Whenever you have an #OveractiveMind that will not behave, this will be your new BFF. It's great for children too when diluted with a carrier oil. Contact me and I will talk you through how to use it and how to get it. You'll really notice a difference in children with this oil! #OverActiveChildren#OveractiveMind#OveractiveMindNeedSleep
Time and time again I've had to learn the hard way that SELF CARE should be my NUMBER priority.
Be smart - don't take so long to figure it out like I did
You are the most important person in your life. You must be ok, happy and healthy before you can support, care for and prioritise others.
You cannot pour from an empty cup
You are worth the work, the effort and the time. Trust me.
You need to do for yourself. Everyday
