Had no time this morning so I hit 2 miles hard. Listened to "Caroline" by Amine on repeat. I will push through the hard and get to the point where running is my joy and my "me" time again. Let's get this super straight. Getting back into it is torture. But I know how fantastic I can feel when I'm back in my groove. Sometimes you HAVE to push through the suck. And then you will be rewarded. This applies to every goddamned sector of life. Trust ya girl. 🔥
Sometimes, we are most powerful when we are silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, actions, defence and offense. They wait with bated breath, to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging from their lips. But silence? 🤐🌸💜 #shhh#dontspeak#flightofthefatgirl#FOTFG
When was the last time you got a Java Chip frappuccino from Starbucks that also had 9 servings of fruits and veggies and over 70 superfoods. My guess is never. However my homemade Thin Mint frappuccino from this morning did, thanks to my amazing superfood shake powder! #coffeewithaboost Also, let me be the first to say I love the Java Chip frappuccino and I will continue to treat myself with one here and there, but I'm so thankful for this version that's much, MUCH healthier!
The rules say big girls shouldn't wear anything too tight, no bold patterns, and no bright colors. I say BREAK THE DAMN RULES AND WEAR WHAT YOU WANT. I feel pretty and that's all that matters 💙 skirt @ftfsnaps #FTFselfie
Unisex products are the best. We're loving @basaltbasalt's entire line of lip balms and candles. ICYMI: a full review is up on GOCO #linkinbio . QUESTION: Do you share any beauty/skincare/haircare products from your boyfriend/hubby? Or do they steal anything from your #topshelf ?
My baby cousin & I ❤️ This weekend reminded me of how important it is to spend time with family. I'm so grateful to have them ❤️ If you haven't watched our #MixedGirl tag yet, click the Link in my bio ⬆️⬆️
For so fucking long I was living my life with a GOOD vs. BAD mentality around food.
I'd wake up thinking about food, and what I could or couldn't have for the day.
I couldn't truly enjoy meals or spending time with friends or even my boyfriend.
I knew how many calories were in __ and if I could "afford" to eat __ today.
I could estimate how many extra miles I'd have to run if I wanted to "indulge" in something "BAD".
I knew how many calories my body would burn running __ miles so I would push myself TO and PAST my limits to reach what I needed because God forbid I just decide to have a whole bagel instead of a half of one.
I thought about what I was eating the next day before the current one even ended.
I'd go to bed with my stomach rumbling like crazy, down a huge glass of water and convince myself I was just thirsty.
I'd wake up the next morning and down another glass of water before I began my workout on an empty stomach because I heard somewhere that working out on an empty stomach would increase the fat burn.
Y'all - my life was CONSUMED with food. All day, every day. It's all that I thought about.
One day, about a year ago, I woke up and just knew that something was really wrong. I couldn't EVER think about food like a normal person and I couldn't remember a time when I ever did. I honestly thought there was no way out. After all, how could I unlearn that?!
The best advice I've ever come across on this journey is to "just start living." Sounds TOO simple, right? BUT, when I began focusing on the things that really, truly mattered in my life like being a kinder person, rediscovering things I actually enjoyed doing, and making memories rather than "creating" this perfect body, everything started to fall into place, a little at a time.
It's not easy (FUCKING HARD, actually). It's definitely not linear. There are ups and downs and all kinds of curves. But once you start actually LIVING and start shifting your mind's focus to more meaningful, fulfilling things, I promise you that your mind will find a sense of peace. I know because I'm getting there. Slow and steady. It's not a race, but keep moving forward. I'm rooting for you. 💗
It would be easy to look at this photo and focus on the drooping belly, loose skin and ripples caused my stretch marks, and to be honest a few years ago that would have been all I'd see. I'd be lying if I told you that I never see those things today, but instead of allowing them to steal the spotlight I choose to reframe my thinking and look at my body as a whole.
Instead of the sagging skin and stretch marks, I see the safe space where my daughter grew until she was ready to come into this world. I see a strong healthy mama whose able to run, play and chase her vibrant two year old, and also double as a jungle gym. I see a warrior who's fought to be here by defying all odds and overcoming 4 open heart surgeries. I see a woman on a mission greater than herself, who chooses to show up and be relentless as she chases her dreams.
I am so much more than just my body, and my body isn't meant to be broken down and analyzed, it's meant to be seen for the magnificent miracle that it is, in its entirety.
And here's a little reminder for you, you're a beautiful miracle too 💜
Just a few days left to register for my signature #LovingMyselfLoudly program. Details in my bio 💜 Don't you think it's about time you started loving yourself?
Buennnn día!!!💕✨🌹 QUE TODO SEA AMOR, FELICIDAD, POSITIVIDAD Y LUZ✨✨✨✨✨ || Hace una semana que vengo desayunando todos los días, y la verdad es que se siente bien. Después tengo más energía durante el día. Me siento tan bien por algo tan simple, pero no sé, lo quería escribir acá también. Ya no le tengo miedo a las calorías que pueden llegar a tener las galletitas o la leche. Hace un tiempo atrás me hacía mal desayunar (supongo que era algo mental mío) y ahora que tomo té con leche no me cae tan pesado como cuando tomaba leche con chocolate con galletitas. Siento que el té con leche es una combinación perfecta y me cae bien, me hace bien✨✨✨🙌 Bueno, nada. || EL DESAYUNO ES LA COMIDA MÁS IMPORTANTE DEL DÍA || Estoy feliz de que desayunar ya no me haga mal y el miedo desapareció. 🎉🎉🎉💪💕 •Las calorías jamás deberían de ser contadas• 💜💜💜NUESTRO PESO NO DETERMINA NUESTRO VALOR Y TAMPOCO DETERMINA SI SOMOS O NO LINDOS💜💜💜 ✔Nosotros valemos la pena. ✔Somos hermosos, TODOS. ✔No importa el tamaño ni cuánto peses, sos hermos@ igual. ✔Desayunar hace bien. || #LoveAndRespectYourself#effyourbeautystandards#FearFood#SelfLove#YouAreWorthy#YouAreEnough#BoPo#everyBODYisbeautiful#loveyourbody#bodypositivite#thereisnowrongwaytobeawoman#youarebeautiful#youareamazing#bodypositivity
Dear person in my future,
I want to meet you when we are both ready. When we finally know what it means to fall in love and to be in love and to stay committed to this love that we have.
Meeting you would always be the best thing that ever happened to me in this lifetime, I finally understood why some people whom I have met already left without a note or a message because they knew you were waiting for me and nobody will ever love me as much as you will.
Let us meet when timing is right, when you have done everything that you wanted to do without needing either my help or my hands. I will see you soon.
