Mel Ekins  Self-love and changing the world.☀️🌼🌸

I haven't been participating much in the #selflovebootcamp but today is #nomakeup day! Honestly I still have some residue from yesterday's mascara and eyeliner because I never take my eye makeup off at night.😂
It actually has gotten much easier to go makeup-free since the last boot camp. I now go makeup-free about once a week at work and sometimes a day on the weekends too. I basically just go with how I feel and that's that.🤷🏼‍♀️
I've realized that I don't really notice when others go without makeup, so it really shouldn't be a big deal when I do it either! #selflove #makeupfree #freshfacefriday #friyay

•The 4 Emotions After a Workout•
(Make sure you scroll to the end, the last one's a keeper)
So this was my first workout since Thursday‼️ I skipped four days, which is a lot for me. Three of those days I was housesitting. And three of those days I also had plans with other people.
I tried not to beat myself up over it but I couldn't help the negative thoughts today. Somehow my brain convinces me I gained SO much weight in those four days and I am suddenly out of shape. But really, is that even possible? I don't think so. (Scientists, correct me here if I'm wrong.)
Regardless, I showed up today and that's what matters! 👊🏻💪🏻

Crampy, bloated, and dying, but still smiling. (Also, can we get rid of the taboo about talking about periods?!) Currently using my laptop as a heating pad because such is life. #embracethesquish #selflovebootcamp

I am such a dork.🤓🤓🤓 Happy #jiggleforjoy day! I (clearly) don't understand dancing lol. Also embracing all my rolls and squish today!

DON'T LET ANYONE FOOL YOU. Posed vs relaxed. I can't tell you how many times I've looked at celebrities or other people's pictures wishing I looked like them. But sometimes we're able to make our bodies look different than they are by posing differently. Take everything with a grain of salt. And try not to compare yourself to others because you're the best just the way you are!😍 #selflovebootcamp #medialiteracy

This is what I look like on an average day. 🤷🏼‍♀️ But today I randomly got my cartilage pierced (not pictured). #selfiesunday #selflovebootcamp

Today is #mentalhealth day. We're about to go into the depths of no return and talk about #dating. Welp. In case you haven't noticed, I haven't dated anyone in a few years. It turns out I have a lot of anxiety about dating (and also just in general, obviously). I'm a pretty optimistic person and both of the last two guys I dated had given me signs that things weren't going well, but I ignored them and was hopeful that things were supposed to work out. To me, both times I got dumped it seemed completely out of the blue and I was blindsided. They both gave reasons like they "needed to find out who they were" and then proceeded to date someone else a month or two after we broke up. I was still hurting from the first breakup when I got broken up the second time and it ended up being too much trauma in one year. To make a long story short, I've basically become terrified to open myself up like that to another person--to trust someone 100% and also be my true self. I'm afraid of being vulnerable, so I've put walls up to protect myself. Even in regular friendships it takes me a long time to open up, so most people don't know the real me. And I'm constantly fearing that people are bored with me, would rather hang out with other people instead of me, or just don't care. It's exhausting. And all the time I ask myself "what's wrong with me?!" and "why did those breakups affect me like this?" I don't really have any answers but I just hope I'll be able to date again someday. To be clear, I don't blame these guys for how it affected me. It just happened. Also, I have finally gotten to the point where I'm really happy being single and I'm not worrying much about dating in the future. I'll get there.
As I mentioned earlier, I don't open up to people much. Maybe 3 people in the world know this about me, 1 of which is my counselor. Be gentle.😐😐😐😐😐 #selflovebootcamp #anxiety

Can we just talk about how all of these pictures were taken within an hour of each other? Some were taken before my workout and some after. My body looks completely different from start to finish. That's what lighting and camera angles can do. Same with the general bloating that comes from working out and being a little dehydrated. And also just the way my body looks in different positions. All bodies are good bodies! #embracethesquish #selflovebootcamp

I took this picture last week for #bootygains🍑 and didn't plan on sharing it with the world but today is #cellulitesaturday, so here you go!😉😂 As you can see, I have cellulite on my leg as well as under my shorts. I'm proud of EVERYTHING in this picture! My butt has almost doubled in size since college because of my workouts so it doesn't matter how muscular you are-you can still have cellulite. It's normal! And again, enjoy this booty pic.😂 #selflovebootcamp

Hello! I'm back at it with the #selflovebootcamp. I don't feel like I need to introduce myself again, but I wanted to share why I'm doing this again! It's funny- I had seen @omgkenzieee posting about how the signup for the bootcamp was out and I literally was thinking "no thanks! I'm still on a high from the last one." Then on the next day I caught my self-critic coming out so I was like "nevermind, maybe I do need to do this again..." So here I am! Plus, you can never have enough self-love, right??!😉 Also, this picture was taken during the last bootcamp. I need to take more selfies!😐

Here at the Food Bank, we love talking to our visitors and volunteers about what we do in the community. A question we often get is, "What's the difference between the Food Bank and a food pantry?" Take a peek at our chart to see how it all works, and how we get food out to our hungry neighbors! #FoodBankFacts
