I'm doing so much more of what I want and what I need these days, rather than everything I thought I was "supposed" to do. Who decided that it was mandatory to work out? To stay a certain size? To live a life dictated by my body or my struggles with food? In the past week, I haven't been forcing myself to do things I haven't had energy for, and I've been working really hard to speak kindly to myself when I begin to think I need to be a certain way. You deserve to be proud of whatever you are and whatever you're doing right now. It's all about finding a life that you feel comfortable with and working on finding comfort in the body and mind you get to sit with every day. It's worth letting go of those ideas of what you're supposed to be.
I want to move forward and let myself heal.

Don't be afraid to do what you need to, to feel beautiful, happy, & confident.
.
You look the greatest
when you FEEL the greatest.
Confidence in yourself and in your body is SO attractive,
And people will take notice!
You will give off energy that attracts others to you!
.
Feeling confident requires self acceptance & love.
Some people can find this right where they are at now...no changes necessary.
.
Others might need to make changes in themselves to get to a loving place.
Maybe you want to gain weight, lose fat, stop shaving your legs, color your hair, or learn to dance. This doesn't make you fake.
This makes you someone who isn't afraid of the judgments of others. This makes you someone who isn't afraid to ask for more in life! What would make you feel like the truest and most confident you?
GO DO THAT!
.
AND DON'T FORGET
Although you may change during your self love journey, NEVER forget just how amazing you are even in your most NATURAL form❤️

A little #FlexFriday transformation. 💪🏻💥 Biceps are my least trained muscle group, and my muscle group that shows progress the quickest. I like to keep shopping for jeans interesting by storing my fat on mah thighs & hips instead. Lol 💁🏻🍑🍗 My biceps get lots of secondary work from my other upper body training, though I do love me some 21's & dumbbell bicep curl drop sets. 🤗 #flashbackfriday #transformation #girlswholift

Sundays are for Jesus and Brunch. 🙏🏼🥂🥞😍

Take small steps as often as you can, and they will lead to big changes.
My recovery was never about making leaps and bounds, it was about taking small steps each specified period that pushed me to challenge myself without being pushed too far to make me feel overwhelmed, two steps back, one step forward... Recovery itself can be very daunting, but if you break it down into smaller, more manageable steps, ##embracingmytrueself

Just about 2 months ago something happened that disturbed my entire emotional and physical being. May sound a little victim-y but it’s the truth. I want to send love to anyone and everyone that has felt this type of human experience (most likely everyone), cuz f**k it sucks. I acknowledge you and validate you with my entire being!
.
I kinda hate the saying “time heals everything” because although it’s true it doesn’t take away or lessen the pain in that moment. It almost makes it worse because in a time of tragedy or trauma time slows down and every second you are in survival mode. I’m a pisces and super sensitive so for me that’s my experience. I feel everything deeper which has always been a curse and a gift at the same time. Anyone relate?
.
The point: I’ve hit every single human and spiritual emotion in the past two months. It’s a crazyyy ride that’s for sure. As time keeps passing it’s a little easier to wake up each day. I know that the hardest things in our lives are our biggest lessons. There is really nothing stronger in a human than to completely break and piece yourself back together again. What’s even more intense is we as humans are susceptible to breaking over and over and over again which also means we are able to heal ourselves over and over and over again.
.
I actually said to myself: I think the Universe is going to give me a break for a few years. I think I’ve been through enough in my past. I’ve grown and healed and found my happiness. Not that I’ve released ALL of my emotional baggage but I got to a pretty balanced place. It seemed like life was going to be a smooth ride for a bit… and WHAM I was “gifted” with one of the biggest lessons yet in my 28 years of life. I looked up at the Universe and said, “REALLY?!, WHY THIS? NOT THIS! IT CAN’T BE THIS!” And the Universe said, this will teach you exactly what you get to learn. I know this is your biggest fear and I know that you are strong enough to overcome this.
.
Sometimes we are just put in shitty situations that we have no other option but to overcome. The reason I’m sharing this is because no matter where you are in your healing I want you to feel your feelings....

Today marks my first day going back to the basics with my original program 21 day fix! Normally, I like to workout on an empty stomach but since being pregnant, I definitely can NOT do that. I wake up starving!! So this week I'll be having two eggs mixed with spinach and tomato on top of a whole wheat tortilla. For those of you familiar with 21 day fix containers this is 1 red, 1.5 green, and 1 yellow.
.
.
To make sure I'm digested, I'm going to do some chores then go knock on my workout! After my total body cardio workout, I'll drink my shake as a snack. I'm so excited to have more structure to my eating and can't wait to see how I feel after 3 weeks of this!!
.

I hope this goes with out saying, but obviously my goal is NOT to lose weight. It's to fuel my body and my baby with healthy good foods💙💙

All of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections

We have all been through times when life gets difficult. But I have found that learning to be more positive and always appreciating the little things -like finding an adorable smiling sun tea leaf holder at the bottom of my teapot which reminded me of the power of positivity :p- and practicing gratitude for all the things I already have, instead of focusing on what I lack, really helps to soldier on through harder times. 🌞. I'm a huge tea lover, so maybe I can make it a habit to reflect and be thankful for what I have when I sit back to enjoy a cuppa :) ☕️

Happy Solar Eclipse!✨🌞🌎🌕. Eclipses always take place during a new moon (solar) or a full moon (lunar). New moons are times for planting seeds; for initiating. Today's eclipse at the Leo new moon ignites passion and transformation, helping you hone your authentic truth and embrace your inner light. So, lovely angels, let yourself be inspired and empowered by today's moonbeams.

Currently working on my website! My coaching practice will be open to new clients starting in the second week of September! That will be 1:1 coaching for binge and overeating, or other life coaching purposes. 💜

Jeg har haft en meget dårlig dag. Jeg sagde ikke fra i skolen, hvor jeg burde. Da jeg kom hjem, skulle jeg med det samme ses med min kontaktperson. Da jeg ikke havde fået middagsmad, skyndte jeg mig at se, om jeg kunne nå det, inden hun kom, hvilket resulterede I, at maden, I ser på 1. billede, røg på gulvet. Hytteosten blev smidt ud, men resten spiste jeg, selvom jeg ikke kunne være sikker på, at peberet ikke var jord (overskud=0). Derefter kom min kontaktperson, og jeg var tæt på at bryde sammen i gråd af stress.
Hun ventede 10 min. uden for min lejlighed, jeg fik spist færdig, og så snakkede vi. Jeg endte med at græde, fordi det hele ramler for mig uden at kunne sætte ord på, hvad der præcis ramler sammen.
Efter vi havde set hinanden, skulle jeg ud og løbe, fordi jeg jo har den der løbeplan. 😞 3. billede er efter løbeturen, hvor eftermiddagsmaden blev indtaget stående pga. stress.
Nu skal jeg i bad, og der venter enormt mange lektier, som jeg slet slet ikke kan overskue. Ved ikke engang, om jeg formår at bære min krop ud i badet.

There are so many reasons to stay alive and it is important to remind yourself why! Sometimes our mental illness blinds us from what these reasons are, so it is helpful to check in from time to time and remind yourself of these reasons. Happy Monday everybody. ☀️

Fantastic spread for our late lunch 😍 •
White sweet potatoes, aubergine and courgette, homemade hummus and tzatsiki, avocado, salad, chickpeas and a vegan cheese (it was more of a nutty pâté, it was okay but wouldn't get it again lol).

It was so delicious and I probably overate but it was mostly whole foods so... 😌

It's so hot outside, we're going to stay inside for a bit and then drive to another little village which is the most South Western point in Europe ☀️Hope everybody is doing well!

Quick little shuffle this morning 😂 I'm slowly but surely getting back to where I once was. I had piece of peanut butter toast and some coffee for breakfast. My first class is today but not until 3 lol #workout #fitness #fattofit #weightlossjourney #weightloss #edrecovery #eatingdisorder #weightloss #weightlossjourney #bingeeating #bingeeatingdisorder #bingeeatingrecovery #bedrecovery #health #healthyfood #healthyeating #vegetarian #bodypositive #edwarrior #prorecovery #running #intermittentfasting

For me, @cambridgeweightplan is so much more than losing some weight. It gives me SO much more confidence. This morning I took part in an indoor caving activity with my Air Scouts and had SOOOO much fun 😍 look at my face coming out the other end down the slide 😁 since I started CWP I stopped letting life pass me by, and started living it ❤❤❤

🇺🇸⬇ Mentale Blockaden

Gestern habe ich endlich die 100kg Kreuzheben geknackt! 🙆 Das mag für einige vielleicht nicht nach viel klingen, aber ich will diesen PR schon seit einem halben Jahr machen. Irgendwas hat mich aber immer blockiert. Ich hätte es von der Kraft her sicherlich geschafft, aber mein Kopf hat einfach immer dicht gemacht. Egal wie stark ich mich an dem Tag gefühlt habe, ich habe es nie fertiggebracht die Kilos draufzuladen. Ich hing bei den 95kg einfach monatelang fest. Nur lächerliche 5kg vom Ziel entfernt. Gestern habe ich mich nicht stärker gefühlt als sonst, ich habe auch kein Pre-Workout oder Monster getrunken - ich hab es einfach gemacht. Und ja, es war nicht die sauberste Form, aber allein, dass ich es gemacht habe, hat diese Blockade gelöst und jetzt kann ich endlich weiter vorankommen. Das lässt sich auf so vieles im Leben übertragen. Meist hindert uns nur unser Kopf daran, voranzukommen. Aber sobald man die Blockade durchbrochen hat, kann einen nichts mehr stoppen. Also ganz nach dem Motto von @lx_koch : Einfach mal machen. 😊

Mental blockades

Yesterday I finally hit the 100kg on my deadlifts! 🙆 That may not sound very much for some of you but I've been wanting to hit that pr for half a year now. But something in head just blocked me everytime. The strenght has been there for sure but my mind always has been stopping me. No matter how strong I've been feeling, I just couldn't load the last 5kg on the bar. Yesterday I wasn't feeling stronger than usually and I haven't been taking pre-workout either - I just did it. And no, it wasn't perfect but only because I did it I overcame the mental block. Now I finally can move on. That can be transferred to so much more in life. Often only our minds are stopping us from making progress. But once we unlock that block, we can be unstoppable. So just do it. 😊
