What I have learned throughout trying to lose weight and diving into nutrition is that your goals will continuously be changing as you go along, so it's important not to be so focused on the outcome that you struggle through the process. Enjoy the journey 💕 Find new foods, new ways to move your body that you love. .
Perspective is everything. You can hate that there are certain foods you shouldn't eat anymore or you can love that you get to experiment with new combinations 👍
Rest days are great opportunities to focus in on nutrition. Sunny days are perfect for a blended smoothies. Good thing my shakes have all the super-food dense nutrition my body needs and tastes like a fruity dessert 😋
Besides the obvious age difference between these two photos, (21 on the left and 29 on the right) a lot has changed for me over the years. .
I gained and lost my dream job. I ate through my emotions... .
I struggled through accepting my brothers addiction to heroin. I ate my emotions. .
Shoot man, dating in general is a rollercoaster of emotional eating... .
I hated the person who I was and completely lost in every new fad on how to lose weight. A healthy lifestyle is a journey. We are all in different places and will never stop having something new to learn. .
What I do know is that you got to start by accepting yourself and loving yourself where you are RIGHT NOW. It is through LOVE that real transformation happens. .

I am a typical Capricorn, as such I am a workaholic. So recently when I lost my dream job due to the company going into liquidation, I found myself going through the many phases of grief. Now this job was something I had worked towards for well over five years, I was starting to build a little empire for myself and unfortunately had reached a level and tiny niche that is beyond competitive if the role ever comes up. As gutted as I am I have thrown myself into this period and fill my time between endless job hunting with small projects like getting my driving license (WOO!) volunteering, learning yoga (I thought I would be better than I am - Capricorn trait again) and focusing on refining my storytelling on here. .
My yoga teacher reminded us this morning to be kind and compassionate to yourself, I had this sudden realisation I have not. Whilst I am positive (most of the time) and throwing myself at this challenging time head on, looming financial stress does start to play tricks on your mind. Whilst I am sometimes sad and vulnerable the most amazing feeling I keep having is the excitement for what is next, the unknown adventure just around the corner. Hopefully a lot more travel! What crazy things have flipped your reality?

Getting this tattoo means a lot to me. It is a physical representation of how hard I worked to reach my goal body. .
I started with an idea to get to a comfortable place in my own skin. No number on a scale or attached to a tag. And feelings are hard to quantify. .
As my journey went on and I learned more about healthy living and how to treat my body right I would set new goals and it just seemed to never end. .
But every time I hit one of these goals I had set for myself, I use a non-food related reward system. A big goal that I had was to go 3 months of consistent exercise and follow a strict nutrition plan that Reset my body and unhealthy cravings. I COMPLETED this goal back in January so I scheduled the tattoo. .
Little did I know I would get sick and end up losing all the progress I had made, but I have done it once and I know I can do it again and I most definitely earned this reward! .
Guess what! You can accomplish great things to! Have a strong enough why and a desirable reward- anything is possible 💕 Need help figuring out the best path for you? Send me a message 📥 I'd love to chat about them with you!
