Day 3 #JoinInJune #yogachallenge with hosts @charlenelim @roseanglim and @trikayoga sponsored by @electricandrose
When I look at pictures of me in this pose I can't believe how far I've come with my #yoga practice. I honestly thought I was too fat, too clumsy, too cumbersome to do yoga. But exposure to accounts of people of all shapes and sizes inspired me to keep going and find my spot.
A year on, I still find flows challenging. I can't do a handstand. I can't step between my hands from down dog to a lunge. I struggle with most twists and binds. But I've learnt how to connect my movement with my breath and how to explore my limitations in a pose. I've learnt how to work with myself in a respectful and non-judgemental way. I've learnt to chill the fuck out and take each moment as it comes. I feel so grateful for that!

18th May 2017 - "A smile"

Or 2 smiles even.

I work with asylum seekers and have come home to my wonderful family this evening full of gratitude for my amazing, privileged life. It can sometimes feel incongruous to sit in stories of pain, separation, fear and displacement in the day and then come home to love and safety. But I'm just trying to do my bit and help some of the victims of this mad world we live in.

17th May 2017 - "I am..." I am pissed off. I woke up to news this morning telling us that "being fat and fit is a myth". There was no mention of the fact that this new study hasn't been peer reviewed or critiqued yet, so no one knows the quality of the study. There was no balanced discussion of it. At one point the report said that using BMI as a measure of obesity was problematic as, for example, it would mean that professional rugby players were classed obese, but then it just followed up with "but for the rest of you, this is a warning". WTF?! I'm working really hard to establish a better relationship with food and my body, and its really hard to do this with these sorts of messages floating about. How can I not internalise that?! Not to mention the fact that even if it were to be true (I'm reserving judgement), THERE IS NO PROVEN INTERVENTION FOR WEIGHT LOSS. What we do know is that most obese people have yo-yo dieted and that this is also an established health risk. These sorts of messages just perpetuate body and fat shaming. I would love to see a study of the relationship between these sorts of messages, weight cycling and disease.

After reading @sassy_latte 's post where she encourages people to think about what they take and give to the #bodypositivity movement, I have been reflecting on what it means to me... Within #bopo I believe that I have found a supportive space where I can critically ask myself "why do I feel ashamed"? "why do I hide"? "Why am I questioning my worth"? I have felt ashamed of my body all my life, and the bopo community has validated my desire to challenge this.

Initially I thought it was somewhere where those of us whose bodies don't meet conventional beauty standards saw our beauty. And whilst I honestly believe that this is valid and indeed necessary, I have found myself seeking more. I have started to look at myself differently, and the world differently. I understand that we are all products of our pasts, and that we all exist within wider social and political systems. I understand that for many of us, those systems are there to dis-empower, to oppress and to control. I believe that beauty and health are concepts that are used to make us feel shit about ourselves so that we consume and conform.

For me, body positivity is more than just thinking that I'm beautiful; it's about feeling powerful and in charge of my own life. It's liberation. It's emancipation. It's freedom. Body positivity as a movement isn't perfect. But no movement is perfect, as they are made up of flawed human beings. But as long as it remains a supportive and critical space, it has me as a member.
I'm still on my journey (it may never end); but I know that this is where I need to go and what I need to do to heal.

Proudly rocking my #chooselove T-shirt to support @helprefugeesuk 💙💚❤️ I've had a @yogaiaofficial account for about a year now, and have found myself gravitating towards the shorter, easier classes. And although sometimes that is exactly what we need, I have been wondering whether I need to push myself a little more. The problem is... I HATE feeling like "I can't" when I'm doing exercise. I instantly start thinking that I'm too fat, too inflexible, too unfit. I hit a mental wall really quickly because of this and end up in a battle with myself. Today I picked a 40 minute vinyasa class, knowing that it would push me further. After about 10 minutes I was pretty much swearing at the screen, but I had a word with myself, told myself to just rest if I needed, to pause the class if I needed, and to generally just chill the fuck out. That helped me to keep going and dig deep, but at the same time work WITH my body, rather than fighting myself. I also reminded myself that this shit is ALWAYS hard; it's not just me and my body that struggles! The result is that I made it through the class. I feel like I've worked my mind and my body, and I'm proud of myself for pushing through 🙌🙏💪 #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #yoga #yogaforbeginners #beingthebesticanbe #yogiintraining #yogamyway #beginnersyoga #yogafornormalpeople #mindfulness #selflove #mindfulnessmyway #mylifestylechange #fitfam #antidiet #fitnessjourney #bopo #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopowarrier #bodyacceptance #mybodyisayogabody #lovenothate #nomorediets #intuitiveeating

These colours though!! I can't get enough colour at the moment 🙌💜💛💙❤️ This morning I'm reflecting on my last year. About this time last year I was just about to fall head first in to chaos. I was feeling really overwhelmed, anxious, sad and exhausted. I had a 6 month old and was working in a brand new job. I felt like I was doing everything badly; being a mother, being a wife and an employee.
Over the last year I've invested a lot of time and effort in to changing my path. I've realised that I was raised by a narcissist who never really loved me, but that that wasn't my fault, and it doesn't have to be my burden anymore. I've realised that I have the power to change how I feel about myself and the world around me. I've realised that feeling good about myself and happy with the person I am doesn't start (for me) by losing weight. I know that life for my son will be different and that he will see a different way, which will help him make better, healthier choices. I know that I am enough, just like this 💕❤️💜 #recovery #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #yoga #beingthebesticanbe #yogiintraining #yogamyway #yogafornormalpeople #mindfulness #selflove #mindfulnessmyway #mylifestylechange #antidiet #fitnessjourney #bopo #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopowarrier #bodyacceptance #lovenothate #nomorediets #intuitiveeating #ootd #plussizefashion #plussize #plussizeootd

I'm trying to incorporate some #mudra techniques in to my meditation

#meditationmarch with hosts @trikayoga @charlenelim and sponsor @monpotehome
This is day 12, so 12 minutes of meditation today focusing on the colour red, and what gives me a sense of safety and security. Immediately my thoughts were of my family; my beautiful son and my wonderful husband. I'm also blessed with incredible friends and colleagues, who I always know have my back.

Day 10 #meditationmarch - 10 minutes of meditation. Hosts @trikayoga

I really struggled with my practice this evening! Too many thoughts knocking... In these times I find myself wondering "Am I meditating?" "Is this it, am I doing it?" "...or am I just blocking my thoughts out and being quiet?" #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #beingthebesticanbe #yogiintraining #selflove #mylifestylechange #fitfam #antidiet #fitnessdiary #fitnessjournal #fitnessjourney #bopo #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopowarrier #bodyacceptance #mybodyisayogabody #lovenothate #nomorediets #intuitiveeating #meditation #meditationtraining

Day 8 of #nygpicaday - "Morning Sky"

Such a moody looking sky this morning, although it has turned out beautiful! I love that I'm paying more attention to what is around me on my morning walk to work. I should definitely keep this up after this group is finished!
