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

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.

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!

Day 7 #meditationmarch with hosts @trikayoga and @charlenelim and sponsor @monpotehome
Such beautiful colours in my 7 minutes of meditation this evening! I saw a beautiful pink light surrounded in yellow, pass from my left eye to my right eye. I felt stillness, calm and peace in my practice this evening. Such a gift. Loving this experience.

Day 3 of #NYGpicADay "Something Green"... I've got 2 of these bad boys to enjoy tonight... Probably my favourite lager #luckybuddha I fancy settling down with some Tarantino films and snacks and hiding from the rain tonight xx

So I had a really shit consultation with a doctor a couple of weeks ago. I'd noticed that my eyes were sore and tired and it made me feel like I just wanted to shut my eyes and go to sleep. The GP asked how much a weigh and asked how active I was. I agreed to get on the scales (something I hate with a passion) and told him that I'm very active. He sighed and told me that I needed to lose weight and take more exercise. I didn't even tell him what exercise I already do. He then proceeded to ask if I need antidepressants. I asked if low mood generally causes sore, tired eyes? I left in tears and he probably thought that I really do need antidepressants. When I relayed this story to my work colleague the day after, she suggested I get my eyes tested. Low and behold my vision has deteriorated and I now need glasses to read!

So Mr twat of a Doctor, it isn't being overweight that's the problem. I'm not inactive and I'm not unhealthy. I'm not depressed about my weight, or about anything for that matter. It was my eyes!! Now I can see what a shit doctor you are! 🙌🙋👀 #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #beingthebesticanbe #beginnersyoga #yogiintraining #mindfulness #selflove #mindfulnessmyway #mylifestylechange #fitfam #antidiet #fitnessdiary #fitnessjournal #fitnessjourney #bopo #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopowarrier #bodyacceptance #mybodyisayogabody #lovenothate #nomorediets #intuitiveeating #effyourbeautystandards

Today I made a promise to myself and my body that I was going to forget about dieting. I actually meant something much more fundamental; I'm letting go of weight loss. I'm so sick of going round and round in circles. I feel frustrated and mad at myself, so I try to diet. Then I fail and I feel like shit, so what do I do...? EAT! BINGE! Well no more. I've finally seen that to be the pointless, ridiculous cycle that it is. I'm going to concentrate on being active and doing the things that make me feel happy... Weights, yoga, walking, swimming. Not as a covert way of losing weight, but because they are things that put me in touch with me inner badass. They are places where I feel good about myself, at peace and happy. I feel like my journey has genuinely turned a positive corner, and for that I am so grateful. Thanks to all the wonderful positive accounts on here for inspiring this change in me @nolatrees @bodyposipanda @yogafornormalpeople @yogaforrecovery @biggalyoga @glitterandlazers @raynalifts And thanks especially to my badass lionesses @nilsenfit and @the10minutebody for always being there to push me and support me 💕❤💗 #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #yoga #yogaforbeginners #beingthebesticanbe #beginnersyoga #yogiintraining #mindfulness #selflove #mindfulnessmyway #mylifestylechange #fitfam #antidiet #fitnessdiary #fitnessjournal #fitnessjourney #bopo #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopowarrier #bodyacceptance #mybodyisayogabody #lovenothate #nomorediets #intuitiveeating

Lovely morning stretch to the sound of the rain on the window. I haven't done any stretching or flows for a week, and my god, I can feel it! My down dogs felt really weak and wobbly.
Grateful to be back in the game and practising again! 🙌🙋💕 #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #yogiintraining #mindfulness #selflove #mindfulnessmyway #mylifestylechange #fitfam #antidiet #weightloss #weightlossstory #weightlossjourney #weightlossdiary #weightlossjournal #fitnessdiary #fitnessjournal #fitnessjourney #myweightlossjourney #myweightlossstory #postnataldiet #postnatalfitness #backinthegame #yogaivemissedyou

I managed to get my slug-like self out in to the fresh autumnal air today and kick some leaves about. I feel so much better about it. I love autumn. The change excites me, even though I know the change that's coming is a long dark winter! I love rediscovering my knitwear, my boots and my jackets. I'm OK with having to think about taking my umbrella out with me and having to remember my gloves. Its the simple things. The changing seasons. The reminder that we are tiny parts of a huge complex world and that despite what is happening in our lives, the world will keep turning and the seasons will keep changing.

Day 18 of my personal #bodyappreciationchallenge #septemberchallenge is me showing some love to my hands 🙌🙋❤💗 I used to hate my hands. My fingers are pretty short and chubby and I bit my fingernails to within an inch of their lives. I used to hate wearing rings as I thought they exaggerated how short my fingers looked. And that was when I could find a ring to actually fit! 😕

Now I take care of my hands. I stopped biting my nails. I like the look of my wedding ring on my finger, and I like painting my nails when I have the chance. Thank you hands for putting up with my shit and for helping me to sort out my shit 💕💕💗❤ #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #yogiintraining #mindfulness #selflove #mindfulnessmyway #mylifestylechange #fitfam #antidiet #weightloss #weightlossstory #weightlossjourney #weightlossdiary #weightlossjournal #fitnessdiary #fitnessjournal #fitnessjourney #myweightlossjourney #myweightlossstory #postnataldiet #postnatalfitness

Day 15 of my personal #bodyappreciationchallenge is my backside / arse / ass / bum 🙌🙋 I'm feeling really lousy today. Sore throat, headache, sinus pain, ear ache... Ugghh. All I want to do is rest and sit on my arse. I did a few easy stretches and am now ready for sleep. Thank you bum for allowing me to rest and recover, and know that it is the best thing for me today 💕❤💕 #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #yogiintraining #mindfulness #selflove #mindfulnessmyway #mylifestylechange #fitfam #antidiet #weightloss #weightlossstory #weightlossjourney #weightlossdiary #weightlossjournal #fitnessdiary #fitnessjournal #fitnessjourney #myweightlossjourney #myweightlossstory #postnataldiet #postnatalfitness

Day 14 of my personal #bodyappreciationchallenge #septemberchallenge is me celebrating all that my chest has to offer 💗❤💕 My son has another cough and cold, and is struggling to settle through the night. He's able to settle on my chest as he's propped up as well as being comforted. I never imagined how complete I would feel with my son on my chest. And for that I'm grateful beyond words 💕💕 #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #yogiintraining #mindfulness #selflove #mindfulnessmyway #mylifestylechange #fitfam #antidiet #weightloss #weightlossstory #weightlossjourney #weightlossdiary #weightlossjournal #fitnessdiary #fitnessjournal #fitnessjourney #myweightlossjourney #myweightlossstory #postnataldiet #postnatalfitness

Day 7 of my #bodyappreciationchallenge #septemberchallenge is me celebrating my mouth and my smile! 😀😁😄 I'm so grateful for smiling. A simple smile can change my entire day, from feeling uptight and defensive to feeling peaceful and happy. Smiles transcend language and cultural barriers and are universally understood to be something that is positive. Since working with people who speak little English I've found myself relishing these small exchanges as they don't need interpreters or translations. I'm so grateful to everyone who has shared a smile with me as it will have almost certainly changed my day 💕💕🙌 #gratitude #gratitudejournal #gratitidediary #positivity #positivityiskey #positivevibes #yogiintraining #mindfulness #selflove #mindfulnessmyway #mylifestylechange #fitfam #antidiet #weightloss #weightlossstory #weightlossjourney #weightlossdiary #weightlossjournal #fitnessdiary #fitnessjournal #fitnessjourney #myweightlossjourney #myweightlossstory #postnataldiet #postnatalfitness

I've just finished reading The Gradtitude Diaries published by @yellowkitebooks and I have to say I'm inspired. I've brought myself my own pretty little diary and I'm going to follow in the authors footsteps and keep my own. I'm starting the day with one thing I'm grateful for and finishing it with another, I've done this for a couple of days and it definitely reframes the way you feel about different events. If you find something's getting you down, you're feeling in a bit of a rut or just want to be more positive I'd highly recommend this book and also to try what she did. Even when life gets you down there is always something to be grateful for. #gratitude #gratitidediary #healthy #mind #mindfulness #reading #books #inspired
