"Fat Wellness Influencer Eats Cookies and Instagram Freaks Out!" I can literally see the headlines. Here is what I have to say:
1. Cookies are delicious.
2. I really, REALLY wanted some cookies today. Like. Really. I've been eating in real alignment lately but I have had this craving and cookies were literally calling my name.
3. The following conversation took place in my head:
"Sarah, you should show people its ok to eat cookies and not judge yourself... but you are a 'wellness influencer' and what kind of wellness influencer would enthusiastically eat cookies on the internet?..... A BADASS REALISTIC ONE, THAT'S WHO, BITCHES!!"
4. Guys, I never want to live in a world where I can't eat cookies. Seriously. Do I eat cookies every day? No. But today, I proudly and lushiously ate four of these amazing @goodiegirlcookies and I loved every damn second and bite of it. Without shame. Eat the darn cookie. The cookie is not your self-worth. Its just food.
#CookiesAreDamnDelicious

Also, taking this moment to give Goodie Girl a heartfelt shoutout for providing snacks for the Body + Love Workshop. You truly are my go-to cookie and I am so excited to have your support. Ps if they look familiar that is because Goodie Girl is at your local @starbucks and is gluten free.
NOMNOMNOM!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ’š
Edit: Six. I ate six cookies. Just saying.

Join me today at 5:30 PT forna very special Self-Love Unscripted with badass @iamtulin ! Self-Love Unscripted is a series of raw and unfiltered chats about all issues related to self-love. We get real, we go deep, and I answer questions from followers as authentically as I can! When we remove the shame and show up as our most vulnerable selves, we illuminate the common bonds between us and can more easily remove the negative narratives that hold us back and step into who we fully are. Self-Love Unscripted promises to be an honest, moving, and โ€œsh*tโ€™s getting realโ€ conversation designed to help you RISE UP and create a greater life from the inside out with changes fueled by self-love. Today we are talking self-love and fitness. Join us!! ๐Ÿ’š

Reminder.
Rise up. It's in you. ๐Ÿ’š

Rules.

Connecting in REAL life beyond the internet is my favorite thing! Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking at the @manifestacollective monthly meeting about creating change in your life from a place of self love. There is nothing I love more than talking to a group of women and seeing that look of recognition. Hearing people exhale. When you can FEEL the entire room lean in in silence. When a group of women becomes ONE woman.

Social media is great, but nothing beats connecting in PERSON!! Remember... the Body +Love Workshop is in FIVE weeks. Get out from behind the screen and connect in real life. Learn actionable toola to help you create CHANGE in your life!! There is no feeling like it, when you realize you are not alone. ๐Ÿ’š

After recent comments, it has been suggested to me that many of you are finding my recent workout videos even MORE exciting and titillating then usual, due to the presence of a certain tall, wickedly handsom dude. I am not one to disappoint, so I offer you the following for your Saturday morning viewing pleasure. Please note that I have adjusted the focus to allow for full, optimal @nathanminorvegas viewing vs me. (I mean. Lifting weights, duh, I'm not that exciting to watch.) Don't ever say I don't do anything nice for you, hmmm? ๐Ÿ˜œ
Ps. Nathan knows what good-natured fun is and he's flattered so... enjoy away. Mazel tov, from my people to yours. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
Pps. Wait for the little in the second video. Bwhaha.
Ppps. Nathan, you da best, buddy. ๐Ÿ’›

So you KNOW I want a dress that is everything!! Its a small way to celebrate myself, as silly as it sounds. I want to ring in my next decade looking and feeling unstoppable, fierce, and joyful. Which do you like?
1. Pink sequin from @asos @asos_loves_curve
2. Pink garden dress from @rebdolls, or
3. Teal wiggle dress from @pinupgirlclothing
Help me pick!!
#BringItOn40

Sometimes the things that appear the most simple are actually the hardest! And not just in the gym, but in LIFE. Don't assume your personal growth has to be flashy to be effective. For example, sitting STILL can sometimes be one of the hardest things to do when we are anxious or challenged. At the gym? This simple movement of lifting my own legs is a huge core challenge... and it couldn't be more simple. Stop comparing your challenges to other peoples. Make it simple. Go deep. Rise up. ๐Ÿ’š

Things I learned today:
1. I cut these denim shorts like shit.
2. I think my dream of being the 6th member of En Vogue has to die its death. Even though I stand by my idea that a short, fat, white Funky Diva would have been a fantastic addition.
3. This song is still sexy as hell. Just, you know, maybe not with me dancing it. Whatev.
4. You can take the 90s NYC gal out of the 90s and out if the city... but you'll never take away her love for dancehall reggae.
5. Dawn Penn was the bomb. This song was the bomb. Its still the bomb.

So thankful to have had a beautiful hand in returning to myself today! Deeply honored to have been invited to @sincityyoga to teach the Kundalini module of their yoga teacher training. Rather than hashout exercis and read a textbook, I was able to sit down and talk to these beautiful souls about what Kundalini actually is, and the philosophy behind it. We reviewed what it means to be a teacher and "forklift" students, as well as what the Five Sutras of the Aquarian Age are and how they can be applied to life. We covered the 10 Boddies, the structure of a Kundalini class, and dove headfirst into Breath of Fire and deep breathing. And then there was the class. 80 minites of meditation and kriya, including 11 minutes of Sat Kriya, which can be intimidating for anyone, let alone a room of students who have never tried before. The comments I heard... One woman talked about actually being peaceful in her own body and another shared that they were surprised at how FULL body the experience was. Another remaked they had been searching for a more spiritual side to their yoga practice and this spoke to them. I feel lucky to have been able to lay the journey for these students to, hopefully, be more inclusive and empathetic teachers to ALL boddies. Thank you, @yogalebrity for this great honor. Wahe guru! ๐Ÿ’š

*Imporant Video NOW on IG TV* We ALL have different mountains. We stand at the base of these huge, insurmountable emotional land masses, and we wonder how we'll ever see the other side. I've shared a very honest and vulnerable video with you to make sure it is 100% clear to you all WHAT I stand for. I encourage you to take 10 minutes from your day, and listen with an open heart.

Listen... and then come back here and talk to me.
How does that video make you feel?
What are YOUR mountains?
Are you willing to see our fears are all the same?

The next time someone tells me I am being fat-phobic or damaging to other women, I'm simply going to respond with respect and kindness, and ask them to watch this video on IG TV.

We ALL have mountains. My calling is to make sure you know that you can stand at the base of your mountain, look that damn thing in the eye... and climb it. One slow, small, beautiful step at a time.

We are all enough. We all deserve to feel amazing in our own life. I am a teacher who embodies the journey of slugging through your own stuff. Because I aim to make it accessible for you to do the same for YOU.

Open your heart. Remove your fear. And listen. Click on IG TV and find the video where I'm wearing the wet and rainy blue sweatshirt.
Rise the f*ck up.
