We miss out on so much when we're stuck under the grips of diet mentality. Healing our relationship with food and body opens up life to us in a way we've never seen before. The work is ALWAYS worth it ❤

Get here. Breathe here. Ground here. Accept here. Love here ❤️

I no longer accept the notion that extraneous weight change (meaning, outside of the normal 10-20 lb range our body’s set point is always within) is only a biological issue, unrelated to life and what’s going on in it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s never JUST because you’ve "let yourself go" the past six months.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s never JUST because you can’t find the “right” diet for you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s never JUST because you haven’t been moving your body as much as you “should."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Always there are deeper, bigger, broader reasons for the changes our bodies go through.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What happened 6 months ago that you’ve been avoiding confronting?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What part of you do believe will be comforted by finding the diet that’s *finally* going to work for you?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who’s advice are you taking on your body over your own body’s wisdom?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What stress in your life are you not handling in a forwarding way?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Forget the number on the scale, how many calories you’re eating, or whether or not you just cheated on your diet, these are the questions that actually matter. Because answering them and honoring their solutions allows your body to come exactly to where it should be.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We know we’re at the right place in our body when we are no longer stressed out by food, feel a peace within our own body image, and find ourselves more preoccupied with the fulfilling parts of life ❤️

Can you be here right now?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you breathe in this moment?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you feel yourself supported by Mama Earth?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you be HERE right now?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here in this moment in your existence in this time in your life in that miraculous body of yours - can you get here?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you leave the “have to”s and “should be”s for later? Can you let your mind take a break for just this moment in order to get here?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Breathe here.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Love here.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Accept here.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can’t get to where we’re going if we don’t acknowledge our starting point, our here, first ❤️

‘Brief is life, but love is long.’ Rediscovered 📸 from the most beautiful Indian wedding this summer 💛🇮🇳👰🤵

We are BIG.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big personalities.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big dreams.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big power.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big love.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big success.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big visions.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yet too many of us wrapped in the determination to shrink the space we take up in the world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And why?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Someone somewhere made you believe that you’re not good enough to be big until you’re small, as if the predecessor to living a big life is existing in a smaller body.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s a giant, patriarchal, oppressive distraction - dieting, negative body image, restriction - because once women could vote and hold a job, the patriarchy needed a new way to control us so they got in our heads instead.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This “need” to shrink ourselves isn’t real. You don’t need to shrink yourself to be healthy. You don’t need to shrink yourself to be confident. You don’t need to shrink yourself to live a big life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You are big. You have big visions for your life - don’t let the false appeal of shrinking yourself ever get in the way of making your big dreams a reality ❤️

Announcement! The project I’ve been working on behind the scenes is the online home for @mybodywpg! Brooke’s commercial location is set to open very soon and her new site will launch just in time for you to get your group fitness class passes and book your nutrition consults. You’ll also be able to swoon over the #bopoinspo from all of the My Body photoshoots in one gorgeous gallery! I’m always excited to build a site for a fellow #hustleandcharm member - check out my stories in the next little while for behind the scenes peeks!

HALLOOOOHOOOO ❤️ Eben ist mir eine tolle Frage über den Weg gelaufen, die ich gerne mal an euch weiter geben würde:

Wofür stehst du jeden Morgen auf?
Oder wenn ihr es kitschig mögt:
Wofür lebst du? 😁

Schreibts mir in die Kommentare oder als PN!
Ich bin sehr gespannt 😇

We restrict our eating as a way to feel in control but underneath that desire for control is a part of ourselves that needs love, not more dieting or a smaller body ❤️

Where you want to restrict you should be loving even more.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The part of you that wants control, doesn’t need more control, it needs compassion.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The part of you that demands structure, doesn’t need more structure, it needs vulnerability.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The part of you that feels broken, doesn’t need harder hits, it needs softness.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The part of you that feels like you’re not enough, doesn’t need to find affirmations of that, it needs courage.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The part of you that feels lonely, doesn’t need to be alone, it needs connection.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The part of you that believes punishment is the way, doesn’t need more punishment, it needs love.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The only way to get to the other side of these parts of ourselves is not through more of it. You cannot fight fire with fire even though most of us when left to our own devices will let that wildfire spread until there’s barely life left.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We must involve love. It’s the only way to douse the flames ❤️

Our brain is no match for our body’s own wisdom ❤️

Just because we know how many calories or macros in something doesn’t change how our bodies nourish themselves with nature’s food.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our bodies carry their own intelligence, different than what we perceive to be intelligence these days - information, facts, data, numbers, etc.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our bodies’ intelligence is symbiotic with Mama Earth. She houses the beautiful environments that ground us, her beaches, her forests, her deserts, her mountains. She has long grown and raised the food we need to thrive and evolve as humans.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our bodies know that. They react to that and send us messages all the time. They function better, they grow better, they heal better when we allow our body wisdom to drive how and what we eat.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But when we drive our eating based on the over-intellectualization of our food, not only are we are denying our body’s wisdom but inevitably you’re going to come up against it anyway.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Feeling hungry at the end of the day when you’ve already hit your macro or calorie limit for the day. (Your body is asking for more nourishment because you haven’t given it enough)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trying to resist that persistent craving for a “bad” food. (Your body is telling you to eat nourishing foods)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Feeling ravenous when you’re tired. (Your body is asking for more energy)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After an incredibly restrictive cleanse or detox you end up gaining more weight back and it will. Not. Budge. (Your body slowed down its metabolism because it thought it was being starved)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s the very thing, no matter how much we try to pretend that our brains can dictate the way we eat, we will always come up against our bodies wisdom.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is a good thing because when we lean into our body’s intelligence we don’t have to struggle anymore. We don’t have to worry about the numbers. We don’t have to concern ourselves with the fight anymore. We can begin to live free ❤️

Shift (n): slight change in position, direction or tendency. ✨

"Ever loved somebody so much that you'd do anything for them? Well make that someone yourself and do whatever the hell makes you happy!" Ich hab euch gewarnt, mit weiteren Bildern von der schönen @curvy.bambi folgen tiefsinnige Sprüche 😁

Wann hast du das letzte mal etwas nur für dich getan?
Der Tag mit Silvi war eigentlich als ganz normaler Fotoshootingtag geplant und daraus wurde insgeheim auch ein kleiner Teil "für mich". Ich habe zusammen mit Silvi mein Herzens-Projekt auf die Bahn gebracht. Einen eigenen Podcast oder zumindest erstmal sowas ähnliches, in dem es nur um Interviews mit inspirierenden Menschen gehen soll. Das erste Interview der Serie habe ich mit Silvi geführt, die sich selbst manchmal als "dickes Mädchen" bezeichnet - und das einfach so unfassbar liebevoll. Bald werdet ihr die Folge schonmal auf meinem Blog anhören können.
Was soll ich sagen...
Es war sehr emotional. Wir haben viel über die Beziehung zum eigenen Körper geredet, über Silvis Weg, ihren Körper akzeptieren und lieben zu lernen und wie ihr das eigene Umfeld mit rein gespielt hat.
Es tut so gut all das von ihr gehört zu haben und jetzt nochmal auf die Fotos zurück zu schauen. Wenn man das alles weiß und sie dann so sieht, dann versteht man erst, wie stark diese Frau eigentlich ist. Und es bestätigt mich einfach noch mehr in meinem neuen alten Lebensmotto: Sexy isn't a shape, it's an attitude. ❤️ Ich meine, schaut sie euch an. Sexy as fuck!
Und bald, wenn das Interview online geht, dann wisst ihr, was ich meine. Ich bin verliebt in diese Selbstliebe! Danke, Silvi, dass du den weiten Weg von Hamburg bis hier gekommen bist. Ich hätte was verpasst, hätten wir uns nicht kennen gelernt.
Ich halte euch auf dem Laufenden, ihr Schnitten! ❤️ #boudior #blackandwhite #kempen #cologne #sensual #boudiorphotography #eternal_noir #annikaluise #sensual_ladies #shotsosensual #impliedmagazine #boudoirinspiration #uncoveredmagazine #intimatelyuncovered #uncoveredmodels #uncoverme #germangirl #naughty #loves_sensuality #fuse_magazine #great_captures_sensual #boudiorphotographers #bopomovement #bodypositivity #loveanybody #loveyourself #embraceyourself #bopoinspo #cmmcrew #supporther
