We did it!! Our little bundle of joy has arrived 18 hours later weighing in at a wonderful 5lbs he is the most precious thing that we've ever laid eyes on..... Labour- well no one really can prepare for what happens to your body. the sensations that ripple through you or the aftermath of it all! Self experience is the only thing that make your appreciate what thousands of women go through all around the world.
The labour itself was what my husband describes quite like a crime scene. No it did not go plan I guess that is part and parcel of birthing a baby, it is an ever evolving situation.
The Aftermath - walking, sitting, standing, even going to pee or poo is something we need to have paitence for. It is no easy fate
After a long 8 weeks I can officially say I am feeling some what human again if not fully, but I could only enjoy this feeling with the expedientious help of my tribe. I am one of the lucky ones who has a huge support network in bringing up a baby. From mums to dads, grandparents, aunts, sisters, friend, the lot.
Have zero expectations of yourself, be patient, and revel in each moment you spend with your new bundle.
Let’s talk about being athletic 🏃🏻♀️ and not working towards aesthetics 👙
Like most girls I do have hang ups about my body and society seems to drive us all towards wanting to be skinnier for some reason 🤷🏻♀️ but I’ve learnt to accept my body for what it is and be amazed by the physical things I can do with it 🤸🏻♀️ Yes my muscles have got bigger and my body has changed shape since doing crossfit, but I get all the feels while working out.
I feel and look strong, happy, healthy and alive. I’d rather look this way than skinny and weak or a gust of wind could blow me over 🌬
During my ‘fitness journey’ I don’t think I’ve ever trained primarily to look good, but always to ‘feel good’ and I hope more and more people inspire to be more active for this reason
It was a pleasure to train @crossfitwanderlust_bali in a massive class where I met lots of amazing fit like minded people. Forever dreaming I was back in Bali 🌴 ———————————————-

Are your skincare products working the way you want them to? 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ Or is it just easier to use the same thing you’ve been using?
I thought my products were ok because I didn’t have any huge problems. But I can say, now I get compliments on my skin. 😉
Is that happening to you? If not, let’s talk.

When a relationship comes to an end with a loved one. It is very natural to feel scared, alone and sad
But jumping from one person to another is NEVER the way to heal a heart
The rebound affects our self worth more than you can imagine
I am not a relationship expert but what i do know is my culture does not encourage females and men to talk about their sadness over a broken heart when love comes to an end.
( lol because we are not supposed to fall in love in the first place )
Very rarely do people ask "how is your healing going"
And this is what creates individuals feeling lost, not lovable and searching for love. Sometimes the wrong love. .
If you are someone grieving.. Grieve as long as you want to. Eventually your grief will find a place to rest
If you are someone living with a broken heart... Break as much as you can, sooner or later you will find the lessons in the pieces of your heart
If you are someone who is feeling unloved.. So be it, the grieving and the shattered pieces of your broken heart will eventually lead your soul to find YOU in YOU
Don't place your worth in someone else for you are more than you think
Thank you to those who helped me get over my broken heart- i can breathe easier now
Fall In love with the parts that are broken.
Allow your self to just BE
Fitness used in the right way can allow us to feel less worthy about ourselves. It def allowed me to vent all my emotions that came to me like a tornado at times.
Find refuge in yourself first, for me that refuge and saviour has always been #fitness
Book in a consultations and lets see how we can transform you mentally, physically and spiritually.
Most of my clients gain weight due to emotional eating and you have to dig in and pull the poison out. The process has allowed so many to drop weight and find themselves again
Excited is an UNDERstatement!!! Last time a tier 1 product launched...it sold $200 million the FIRST year!!! I love what Caroline Smith, RFx Circle Achiever said about this upcoming new product launch....
“The last time we launched a Tier 1 product, it was Lash Boost. Being Tier 1 doesn’t necessarily mean we’re the first one on the market to ever do this ... BUT ... what I can ASSURE you of, is that when Rodan + Fields does it, they do it BETTER than anyone else! Literally, the doctors will NOT release anything unless it’s BETTER (with no comparison) to anything else on the market! Like with Lash Boost, we weren’t necessarily the first lash serum to ever hit the market. We WERE however one of the first that you didn’t need a prescription for. Have their been others that have followed? Yep. Butttt do their lash serums compare? NOT A CHANCE.
So now .... we‘re about to do it AGAIN 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 When Lash Boost launched, my sweet team + I hit car volume + I started earning a 5 figure monthly income.” UMMMM...did she say 5 figures?!?! A MONTH?!? YEP!!!! It’s time to chat!! (This is her unique story, for more you’re always welcome to search the R + F IDS )
TOMORROW IS YOUTH ALPHA ❗️❓❗️❓❗️❓❗️❓❗️❓
Be here for 6:30 in the café for pizza, hangs and some discussion surrounding some of life’s biggest questions. ❓❗️❓❗️❓❗️❓❗️❓❗️
We can’t wait to start this adventure together! 🎉
In advocating about mental health issues, we also need to think about how our idiosyncrasies are reinforcing the stigma.
Education is useless without implementation. Are you speaking in a way that is empowering ? Are you calling your friends out when they’re labeling other people? Are you educating your parents about ways they may be perpetuating trauma? Are you calling out your friends on offensive behaviors? Are you aware of your own stereotypes? Are you aware of your own barriers?
Having a degree in mental health does not mean we’re immune, nor does it mean we are excluded from the problems?
Therapists with little to no cultural competent language could be a factor in barrier to services . Your circle of best friends could be a factor of perpetuating the stigmas in girls and women.
So our questions for you today is this: are you embodying what you’re advocating against?
Join us next Saturday at Brockton Temple and #letstalk#savesoulsministry
Why not start your 2020 New Years Resolution THIS MONTH!!!! Imagine how great you’ll feel going into the New Year’s already WINNING!!!

And that is what I teach you as a health coach 💁♀️. It’s a lifestyle change not just a diet! Get out of the yo-yo mentality and start living your life.....the healthy way of course 🤗
Aaaand we’re down with the backtoschool lurgy 🤧 Not them, oh no. Just me. Awesome.
I have achieved very little today as I just couldn’t find the energy to proactively work my way through the day, and anything I tried took far longer than I felt it should, and I added more to the list of constantly unfinished ‘stuff’.
And to be honest, that makes me feel as crap as the lurgy.
Watching @steph_dontbuyherflowers stories this morning about the overwhelm we feel - and how much it affects us - was equally heartbreaking and resonant. Some days (ok, most) just feel completely ‘too much’. That trying to do something, ANYTHING, can take up so much time because of the effort it takes to order your mind and motivate yourself first. I am definitely prone to productivity guilt, and I hate it. The constant need to ‘do do do’, often things that aren’t actually vitally important but just seem to be things that must be completed regardless.
And all the while the undercurrent of that little voice asking why you can’t handle this and telling you you’re just not good enough.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the constant cycle of failing to ‘achieve’ or tick anything off that list, not feeling like we are handling either home OR work. And it’s so hard to remember that it is ok to feel it is too much - because so often IT IS TOO MUCH! You are only one human.
You cannot do it all no matter how hard you try.
Whatever you do or don’t do with your day, whatever that makes you feel, you ARE good enough and you have got this 💪🏻🖤 .

Its not always necessary to feel you have to entertain drama and conflict. -
Stress is not healthy for you mentally, emotionally and physically. -
What the mind can't contain will be imposed on the body! -

#letstalk#bodypositivity 💁🏻♀️ I don’t want to just be confident about my #skincare I need to have confidence with my body. I’ve fluctuated so much over the past few years. I learned that I don’t have to do some kind of crazy workout to achieve the size I want. I walk A LOT and I do 10sets of a range of exercises and 4 rounds of them. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m feeling good. My goal is to be healthy, nothing more, nothing less. I refuse to compare myself to what the media says.. be slimthick, big butt, thigh gaps, tiny waist, big lips. UGH that’s a lot to live up to. SMASH THAT. #livehealthy#confidence#selfworth#workout#goals#girlpower#bodylove#loveyourself#selflove 💓🥰
"The Terror of Imagined Disaster"
Fight mode doesn’t just happen to animals. It doesn’t just happen to criminals. It happens to many people and it’s become called a wide range of names, some of which become labels of “abuse” or rage, things that are hard for the abused and the abuser. When I am in fight mode, I will tell you to leave me alone no matter WHO you are, and no matter HOW much you are trying to help.
To see the full post, follow the link in my bio to my blog "Inspiration Station." I have considered publishing this for the better part of the past 3 years. This was, and is, one of the hardest things I have ever shared with the world, and i am usually someone that loves to be open <3
So why Am I sharing this?
some of my deepest fears during these moments are that people will judge me. This so not because I have judgmental friends or family, but in society, we judge the vulnerable. Too often, I see people with dementia get barked at because 'they don't understand.' Too often, people turn to "criticism" and "solving the problem" instead of just plain empathy.
My best technique to handle these moments of fight-or-flight has been to accept myself for having them. If you ever want to help, please just accept me where I am at.
I believe that if we could all just sit with each other and accept and hold each other through our pain and struggles-instead of blaming each other- the world would be a sweeter and safer place <3
