  • What if you woke up today and decided you were going to accept your body? Not love it just accept it. 
You were going to accept the cellulite on your legs because it a part of being a women.
You were going to accept the softness on your tummy because it’s a symbol of the life you are living *and* it’s  protecting the organs which are keeping you alive.
You were going to accept your stretch marks because it’s your bodies way of telling you that you are growing.
You were going to accept not having a thigh gap because , who wants to drop their food on the floor anyway? 
There’s so much talk about #selflove but I think it just starts with acceptance. 
These are my legs
This is my tummy 
These are my marks 
And they don’t define me. 📸-@wambamphotography #bodyconfidence#selfacceptance#love#healthy#happy#dietculture#fitness#girlgains#bodypositive#thursday

  • I've been doing a series on food battles and one mom wrote "My child is obsessed with sugar."⁣⠀
~⁣⠀
Each kid is different and I have at least 20 different strategies for dealing with "sugar" that I employ at different times. Here's 1 of them for ages 2 and up!⁣⠀
~⁣⠀
We do "dessert" about 0-2 times per week. I like to mix things up so that they are "normal", but also not all the time. And I reserve the right to serve it more often. 🤔 ⁣⠀
~⁣⠀
Of course dessert may be "standard" or "healthier", have sugar or be sugar-free (like berries and home-whipped cream).⁣ ⁣⠀
~⁣⠀
My ultimate goal is to teach my kids to eat less sugar.⁣⠀
~⁣⠀
So, why would I serve it more often? Well, if my kids start to have some sort of obsession with it, I tend to add in treats more often. I realize this seems to make no sense. What I find, is that after a few dinners with ice cream, it's just not as awesome to them anymore! My goal is to keep sugar from being that amazing forbidden fruit that they need to binge on. ⁣⠀
~⁣⠀
When my kids start getting weird about it, I show them it's not that amazing. I serve treats a few more times per week for a week. And then I taper down to 0-2 times per week. Because I also don't want them to feel like they have to have dessert every day. Having dessert-free days is important to me.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
~⁣⠀
Is it going to work for everyone? No. Nothing works for everyone. Have you found that this strategy works for you?⁣⠀

  • Houve um tempo em que eu usava apenas jeans e camiseta pois não achava que eu merecia me vestir bem por conta do meu corpo. Houve um tempo que eu me isolei por achar que eu não merecia ter nenhum amigo por conta do meu corpo. Houve outro tempo, em que eu não conversava com os meninos da escola, porque não me achava bonita o suficiente pra sequer conversar com eles. Houve um tempo também que eu só usava maiô na praia porque achava que corpo gordo não merecia ser exposto. Também houve um tempo que eu sequer saia de casa se não tivesse feito chapinha no cabelo, porque sempre achei meu cabelo feio. 
Eu sempre fui gordinha, então meu corpo sempre foi "normal" pra mim, mas o normal nunca havia sido suficiente porque eu queria ser incrível como as outras meninas magérrimas, com cinturinha fina e cabelos compridos. 
Meu sonho desse pequena sempre foi trabalhar com moda, mas nunca me achei magra o suficiente pra colocar isso em prática. 
O processo de aceitação é duro, doloroso, é triste, o caminho a ser percorrido é difícil. O processo de conseguir nos olhar com nossos próprios olhos é complicado. Mas ao mesmo tempo é o caminho mais lindo que alguém pode percorrer. 
A um tempo atrás eu ouvi que ser gentil consigo mesma é o mínimo que devemos fazer, pois é nesse corpo que mora a alma da mulher que estou me tornando e isso nunca fez tanto sentido... nosso corpo é nosso templo. Nosso corpo é o nosso lar. Encontrar beleza nas minhas dobrinhas foi o processo mais difícil e mais gostoso.
Hoje em dia, posso olhar no espelho e falar pra mim mesma: "caralho, cê é a mina mais gostosa que conheço". Se amar é o maior ato de revolução! 💕

  • i hope you all had a productive week 🙌🏽
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
lately i’ve been thinking about my body image. it’s hard to not chase unrealistic expectations or a number on a scale but i’m just so damn competitive even if it’s with myself! best advice i’ve received this year is “be kind to yourself” and it’s something i’ve had to actively work on bc my anxiety loves to manifest negative, self-destructive thoughts if i let it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
anyway i’m on my way home to atlanta to go to the travis scott concert for my brother’s birthday, toodles !!

  • Last night was a much needed self love session with these beautiful girls. This term I had made a deal with myself to put more time into practice so I could perfect my choreography and enjoy classes more without the internal pressure. I thank myself for showing up every week and achieving that goal. However I forgot to carve out time to allow myself to not be perfect. Luckily, my incredible teacher Kyla invited me to this little workshop where we started with writing ourselves a love letter, and learnt this routine with the aim of feeling like ourselves, and looking after our own needs while supporting each others individuality. It's really powerful  to be in a room where vulnerability, love, support and acceptance are coexisting in the company of inspiring women, and I feel so lucky to have these moments with awareness. Here's to the daily opportunity to redefine what perfection means. 💓 @thatsmyjamdance #photoshoot #dance #dancing #choreography #inspiration #selflove #positivevibes #byronbay #actress #dancer #girlpower #traveling #adventure #bodypositive

  • Cuando escuchéis esa vocecita que os dice "eso no te quedará bien, eres demasiado gorda/flaca/alta/baja"...decidle de mi parte a esa vocecita insolente que es una imbécil y que no tiene ni idea. He tardado 32 años en empezar a plantarle cara a esa voz en mi interior que me empequeñece, me limita y me hace sentir como basura a grandes rasgos. Ni un día más. #bodypositive #curvyandproud #vivantodaslastallas
