🦊 I felt crap yesterday. I looked at pictures from 5 years ago... after my 1st kid. I was training for a wedding body & lost more weight than I needed too, my wedding dress ended up being too big & that pleased me, I had more muscle than fat left on me- I was proving to myself I could look better than before- and I felt I did. When I looked at those body pics i compared it to my current body & I got down about it. I did realise much later in the day (after beating myself up about nothing) that this body today isn’t calorie tracking or forcing workouts when I’m exhausted. This body enjoys Krispy Kreme Donuts, Red Wine & socialising. I don’t beat myself up for missing a work out like I used too and tbf there probably isn’t anything wrong with this current body. So even though we post pics looking cute it doesn’t mean we’re not all fighting demons of our own. Peace out bitches 😘

Smiles are deceptive.
10 minutes before this photo was taken, I was in Starbucks crying.
It doesn’t really matter why, but what did matter at the time, was that I didn’t want anyone to know.
And conveniently, most people believe smiles.
Malcolm Gladwell recently did a study that made me think of this. In his study he analysed episodes of FRIENDS to see if when Joey was angry, whether his face demonstrated it. Same with phoebe and shocked faces and as with most TV shows, their face demonstrates their exact emotion. If they are meant to be shocked, their eyes are wide and mouths open. If they are meant to be angry, their brows are furrowed and eyes narrowed and you can read their emotion from their face 99% of the time.
This is NOT the case in real life.
When someone is angry, they could have a smile plastered on.
When someone is sad, they could have a smile plastered on.
We often talk about Instagram being deceptive but I think it’s the smiles that are the deceptive part.
Smiles don’t tell the full story.
And sometimes the bigger the smile, the more you are trying to hide.

We all have weaknesses when it comes to boundaries. Sometimes it’s a certain person who gets away with too much, sometimes you aren’t good at holding boundaries in one area of your life.
And as much as I talk about boundaries and have been actively practicing them, I’m no different - I have weaknesses too and I have times I slip up and go back to letting my boundaries down.
My main weakness that I’ve been working on is I’m not very good at saying something in the moment. Sometimes I’m a little too taken off guard and so I don’t always react how I want to.
Here’s the thing though: it is never too late to set a boundary!
You don’t need to be quick on your feet, sometimes people crossing boundaries can shock you and you are allowed to process that.
All you have to do is preface it with “Hey! You know yesterday when you said X, it made me really uncomfortable and I don’t appreciate it when ...” And you can start the conversation again, there is no time limit on how you can improve communication in any relationship.

I've not lifted heavy in a while... So this mornings workout really tested my strength, stamina and endurance 😅
You shouldn't be afraid of lifting weights...lifting heavy weights will make you leaner — not bigger.
After a weights session I feel a great sense of satisfaction, plus I know that I'm burning calories well after the workout has ended. The more muscle I have, the more calories I burn, win win 😁💪 Weight lifting makes you love your body even more... Eating healthier can give you the weight loss goals you desire, but to truly see a transformation, then you need to incorporate exercise into your daily routine, and this includes weights and resistance training 🏋️♀️🏋️♂️ You can then start to focus on the gains not the losses 😁
The first step toward learning to love and appreciate your vulva and vagina is recognizing that you’ve been taught lies by society - it’s dirty, gross, you should be ashamed of it - and then commit yourself to unlearning that bullsh*t and filling yourself with respect and admiration instead.
Make sure to educate yourself, understand how it works (how it actually works) and know that nothing it does it gross, but there’s a reason for everything. If you’re curious, look at pictures of other vulvas so you can see how vastly different each individual is and know that yours is beautiful and unique to you.
No one is made the same. We are all different and that is what makes this world amazing. As long as you like what's going on, that's all that matters.
