Sometimes, I’ll start a post and I don’t even know where it’s going. I just hope I find it along the way. I know it’s not Tuesday but this side by side really showed me how far I’ve come in the last year. I’m not going to sit here and preach consistency and nutrition because you all here that 100 times a day on your feed but I do want to highlight one thing about the picture on the right. I took that picture yesterday after only working out maybeee once in two weeks. Totally unplanned but the semester got crazy and giving my all in school has always been more important to me than getting a lift in. I know that’s not how everyone operates, and that’s cool too. But I just wanted to show that almost two weeks off didn’t make me lose all progress I have built up over the last year or so. Now, I actually lost weight (probably muscle, SAD) but I think the rest did my body more good than harm. I barely take more than 1 rest day in a row and it’s been like that for a while, but I just wanted to show that taking extra rest doesn’t put you back at square one (I ate alllll the Easter candy too haha and still kind of am). The unplanned rest has me rejuvenated to hit the gym and I feel accomplished knowing I gave the last bit of undergrad all the effort I had left😁.
Mahalo to @goodvibecenter
for alerting me about the @truecostmovie documentary screening in Honolulu.
Reposting, with admiration, from Leilani Angel @stylesorbet, who wrote "It’s @fash_rev week!!!" and "I am so excited that so many people are interested in learning more about ethics in fashion and how we can all do our part to create a more compassionate world through the purchases that we make and the brands that we support!
A little about me...I've been in the fashion industry for over 20 years. I've specialized in fashion show production, styling, fashion education, and merchandise management. This film changed my relationship with fashion both personally and professionally. No one should lose their life to make a pair of jeans. Our environment shouldn't suffer from toxic pollution in the name of fashion. Animals do not need to die for the sake of 'fabric'. It doesn't have to be this way. We can do better!
Please remember to bring or wear an article of fast fashion for our group activity after the film. Unfortunately, most people unknowingly have fast fashion in their closet. Including me. Once I discovered what fast fashion was all about I consciously made the decision to hang on to those clothes, wear them, mend them, repurpose them, recycle them and make sure that they never end up in a landfill. *Fast Fashion = inexpensive clothing produced rapidly by mass market retailers. Items typically found at Forever 21, ROSS, Walmart, GAP, Guess, Nasty Gal, Urban Outfitters, Zara...just to name a few :( Don't let a closet full of fast fashion get you down. I always remind myself of the beautiful words of our precious Maya Angelou when I think about the fast fashion I've purchased in the past...'I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better!' Let's all do better, together!
If you haven't already done so, please reserve your seat for the screening! It’s first/ come, first serve! I look forward to connecting with you all thisThursday, April 25th at 6 PM at @goodvibecenter!
