I am a big breakfast person and I know no one gives a shit but I found this really awesome bread that I love from Whole Foods and I want to tell you about it. It's the early bird multi seed bread. I've been having it with my normal spinach and egg. Yes, I eat butter. Yes, I eat eggs yolk. Not pictured is the morning kombucha I drink 😂 #creatureofhabit
Chocolate Covered Cherry protein shake! 🍒 Protein powder is the one thing I have used since the very beginning of my journey. It’s an easy way to get a good breakfast in and you can change it up so easily so it never gets boring 😋 If you wanna try my favorite protein go to the link in my bio and use donna30 to save 30%! 👍 #proteinshakes
Going through the motions anyone?!! Feeling like this can’t be IT !!! As moms, wives and women in general, we tend to find ourselves doing the same things day in and day out.
Zero passion !!
Feeling less than fulfilled.
These things start to impact our work, our relationships, etc.
Clarity within yourself is what helps you think positive things of yourself. Helps you find what it is you desire outside of the motions of life.
Questions I try to ask myself, that changed me and my view towards life.... I often try to refine through seasons.
Who am I??
What do I want out of this life?!
What are my values?!
What am I good at?!?
What do I suck at?!
Where do I want to go in this life?! Knowing and asking these questions will help you be more positive about yourself, your work and hide around you and KNOW what it is in life you desire.
It won’t just bop you on the head one day.
It’s a inside job.
I am starting to enjoy rest day.
Guided meditation 🧘♀️ and yoga!
Helps my mind and stretches my body.
Helps me refine ME!! It’s not just about BODY shaping
It’s about the mind too.

I remember when I first bought these pants in February. I bought them online without trying them on and I decided to buy a large because I knew old navy sizes were a little big. I was nervous, but when they fit well, I was so freaking excited. Flash forward to now, and these pants fall down when I try to do any kind of cardio and I think I might need to invest in some mediums. 😝
That’s such an amazing feeling! It’s also nice to have an actual excuse to replace my wardrobe because hi, my clothes are falling off. 😂

Dear Body, You and I have been through a lot together, haven’t we? today I want to apologize for the times I didn’t love you the way you always love me.
Thank you for letting me feel sand beneath my toes and salt water in my hair. Thank you for carrying me over mountains in the rain and snow; for allowing me to experience life in its truest and most sincere forms.
Thank you, for being exactly as you are. Thank you for being a vehicle for my soul. Thanks to you I can share who I am and what I have to offer with the world. 🌻I LOVE YOU🌻
... and in case I forget (I know somedays I do), this is my reminder! now, let’s go dance the day away together 🕉✨💫🌞 #nourishyoursoul#nourishyourbody#bodypositive#enjoylife#travel#happy#vsco#vscogood
It is far too often that scoliosis and other physical conditions are only seen for what physical pain they cause... but more often than not, the emotional strain goes a lot deeper. It is so important for us to acknowledge that certain conditions don’t just solely affect one aspect of life - but that they can affect many.
Been feeling super insecure about my body hair lately 😢 I’ve just been picking and pulling at my facial hair whenever I feel anxious and now I have a bumpy rash on the sides of my face and under my chin 😤 what gives you body hair confidence?

New blog up! Link in bio ☝️Thanks to @mollybcounseling for the topic 🙏 This is something that we see and you probably hear about ALL.THE.TIME. People are constantly eliminating foods from their diet (by diet- I mean the foods we eat on a daily basis not going on a fad diet) either from hearing these foods are “bad” for us or because they think their body can not digest these foods. But the question is... are we simply making things worse for us? 🤔 Read the post for the research 📚on this. Have you eliminated foods from your diet? How did it turn out? Do you struggle with digestive issues? And if you have a blog topic for us let us know! We write about all things nutrition, mental health, eating disorders, body image issues, and social justice just to name a few. Let us know!
I think I may not be alone when I say that going to the beach & wearing a bikini used to scare me...and I’ll be honest, it STILL does👙 .
Even after reading everything that I have about body acceptance + positivity, it’s HARD to truly put that into practice. It’s hard for me to be confident and wear a bikini out to the beach. I find it so hard not to compare myself to others I see & to my own body as it was in high school, over 5 years ago. I have to remind myself constantly that bodies change & no matter what my nutrition/fitness goals are, my body deserves love and kindess ❤️ I want to be healthier not to lose weight, but simply to feel more comfortable in my own skin. I have a renewed love of working out + I’m finding my groove a little more each and every day 💪🏻
I am NOT saying that if I work out for x amount of months and lose x amount of weight I’ll finally miraculously be happy with my body & have no fears. That’s just not how it works 🤷🏻♀️ I AM saying that no matter how much we may know about body love & positivity and shower it upon others, it’s still difficult to find that love and acceptance for our own bodies 🙆🏻♀️
Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Aim to be healthy + happy for one person only- You. Don’t think back to a time when you were happier with your body because chances are you’re forgetting something that you weren’t happy with at the time. We criticize ourselves better than anyone else. But we are not meant to look alike or be perfect. God did not make us that way! 💕💕
And just remember- the ONLY thing you need to have a beach body is just a BODY 😍😍😍
Dug back a little to get to these pictures. I didn’t like them at first (like most pics of myself) but this one grew on me. My resting bitch face is strong sometimes, but truly, I’m way too nice for my own good at times. This leads to getting walked all over and lately, after much therapy, I’m learning to stand up for myself like never before. Sh*t feels good! 📸 @sunday.boateng
Essa pose segurando os dedinhos é conceitual? 💁🏼♀️✨ Engraçado como pequenas mudanças podem revelar novos amores no nosso corpo?! Desde que fiz essa tatuagem de aranha no @tatuariaestudio só quero usar look com decotes bem profundos e colocar os peitooones pra jogo 👀 Me conta aí, vocês também gostam de usar decotes profundos assim?

⭐️Personally, I’m not a fan of mine⭐️ It’s always the first bit of me to gain weight and the last to lose it. I don’t understand the fascination for big bums. Natasha Crown eats 15 jars of Nutella a month to have the biggest bum, it is currently 6ft wide! 😬Each to their own, but what are the health risks of this, fat deposits, weight, inability to take exercise, long term it’s going to put stress on her legs and her back. As much as I would like a smaller, firmer one, it’s just a bum and it’s normal sized and healthy and doesn’t look like it could be the body double for the peach in James and the Giant Peach! So I’m embracing it’s normality ...not literally...obvs😃 #loveyourbum#happyandhealthy#embracethenorm

As an ex-athlete, I've had to rediscover what fitness means to me. In the highly competitive world of sports, I was constantly focused on what would make me perform harder, better, faster, and stronger. My sport brought me some great experiences and took me around the world, but mentally I struggled.
Even at the peak of my athletic physical fitness, I was insecure about my body. I was ashamed of my muscular physique. Instead of appreciating all the amazing things my body could do, I chose to be critical of it.
It took time to change this type of thinking, and sometimes those negative thoughts do happen. I read a recent post from @cleowade with a sentence that said, "shame is sneaky and relentless." This resonated with me, because shame was exactly what I felt. Shame that what I saw in the mirror did not match up to what I was conditioned to believe was beautiful. Even in the rare moment when I could be feeling confident in the power of my body, there would be a part of my mind that would second guess myself.
Body positivity is hard. I don't believe there is a finish line to living in complete body love. At different times in our lives, there will be different challenges. It has to be something we are willing to rediscover over and over.
Now, instead of criticizing myself, I do things that make my body feel good. As a result, I enjoy fitness in a different way than ever before. I do not feel ashamed about my strength. I may not be competing anymore, but I feel much better about myself now. I recognize there is much more to do, but that is what excites me! -- xx The Healthlete
So excited to share my podcast with you. Tea with Robin because I've been having tea with friends in healing sessions for the better part of 20 years and there are many stories and perspectives to share. Friends tell me all the time that I say the things they need to hear, not just the fluffy woowoo stuff. I care about you getting to where you long to be and what's hard sometimes is not seeing how you hold yourself back. That's my superpower. I promise we'll have fun 💗 subscribe iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Spotify coming soon. Link in profile or here
It's been a while I wanted to share this thought with you.
When I was younger I used to be bullied a lot due to my lack of "masculine" features, and due to my shy/timid behaviour. There is a lot of open-mindness today, but almost 20 years ago sh*t was really different. I was called "gay" and bullied through all my junior years, and only because I wasn't "male" enough for the societal standards.
That's why now I just want to remind men (both cis and non-cis) that follows me that ya'll are beautiful as sh*t. Regardless of your shape or size.
I don't give a f*ck if you dont have abs, strong jawlines, or facial hair, or long flowing hair, or tattoos, or anything else that is considered the societal standard of that makes someone atattractive. Even if you look more "feminine" by some people's standards.
Whatever you got or whatever you find you like best, fucking rock it my dude. 🙈
