I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, but if it didn't go quite as planned, keep reading! ⠀
I don't want you to struggle through the rest of the holiday season feeling tired, overwhelmed, stuffed, etc. ⠀
That's why I'm opening the doors to my Holiday Support and Accountability Group for 2 days only! ⠀
This is a safe place where we help each other stay on track and make healthy choices so we can enjoy the holiday season, and most importantly, not feel desperate to lose all the extra weight beginning January. ⠀
If this is sounds like what you need, message me. For less than $1/day you can get daily support and encouragement now to December 22. Cost: $25. ⠀
Hurry! Doors close at midnight Saturday. There are already women who are in the group ready to support you and needing your support too! ⠀
Made my first lyrical video. This is about someone who has been part of my life from a very long time. I hope everyone who shares the same companion can relate with this poem

Did you know that it's a proven fact that everything tastes better in a handmade mug? 🤷🏼♀️ Drinking @larryscoffee cold brew (easier on my stomach than hot coffee) mixed with @vitalproteins collagen. I don't care that it's cold! I wanted to use the mug!! 😂
One of my favorite gals and my very first roommate (she set the bar very high) made me a beautiful set of mugs!!
We spent 2 years in the dorms together - through random assignment, believe it or not. 😊 After being at the same school for 14 years, I had trouble figuring out who I wanted to be in college. Caitlin is so creative, driven, and most importantly, unapologetically herself and inspired me to strive to be the same!! She will always be a very important person to me no matter how often we get to see each other. ♥️♥️

Tea with Mum 💕 tw: the last few days have been pretty tough. I wasn’t allowed to University yesterday because I refused the meal plan. I’ve been so tired and have such bad body image, as gross as it sounds I haven’t showered in days. We woke up at 6 this morning to drive to my assessment which went well but ended in tears. On the way home we’ve stopped at M&S for Mum to get some food and we’ve also just bought some Christmas cards so we’re getting in the festive spirit! #eatingdisorder#anorexia#anorexiarelapse#anorexiarecovery#anxiety#depression#ed#mentalhealth
We've got @steve_the_puppeteer with us today, talking to our students about current topics like radicalisation and the #prevent strategy. 🙌🏻 If you haven't already, be sure to head along to the hall, he is sharing and important message! 💡#ThinkBrock
This is my therapy!
I woke up on the wrong side of bed this morning.
Mainly down to stress/time management trying to fit in a business alongside another job.
But, believe it or not, I go to the gym to calm me down.
The gym isn't just there to "bring you pain" or "give you gains". A lot of people feel that by going to the gym you have to 'suffer' in order to progress. Bullshit. Thats not what the gym means to me. That's not what exercise means to me. I exercise for peace of mind. I lift weights and try and better my physique in and out gym for a sense of calm. A feeling of personal progression. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I'm trying to say is that, we all can benefit from exercising regularly. Whatever it is you choose. I chose the gym. Not just for physiological or aesthetic reasons, but for overall health - both physically and mentally. I know that no matter what goes on in my life whether it be business, career, family or relationship matters, the gym will always be there waiting for me to bring a sense of calm and perspective on things. That's not to say that the gym trumps all. Absolutely not. It's a tool I use so that I can give so much more to every other aspect of my life.
This is me doing some deadlifts. This is also me performing some self loving aiming for personal devlopment.
110kg for 5 reps at RPE 9. A PB for reps Not bad considering I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Now off to work!
Lol. I can comfortably admit I am the biggest culprit of this. Same obsessive thoughts, over and over, same conclusions Moving nowhere. How can my mind be so good at convincing me of things which are completely insane? If only I could redirect that energy into the good, positive abundant thoughts, I can only wonder where I would be. May our mental space be clear, may our thoughts be occupied with positive affirmations, convincing us daily of who we truly are and in some cases who we could really be. May we attract joy and peace and live an abundant life. Let's move forward and make a stand for ourselves. Let's make a commitment to end this shit. Fuck anxiety. Fuck overthinking. Fuck negativity.

It's never wrong to say how you feel. And lately, I've been feeling a tad lonely. It's not to say I haven't got people who I can speak to. But I feel discarded. I know we can't all be happy all the time, but sometimes things become overwhelming - we are only human after all. I'm sure things will change. Feelings, emotions etc. Roll on tonight, and a weekend of looking after myself. And to anyone else out there who feels lonely, sad, underwhelmed just know its okay to feel however you want to feel. You don't have to apologise and you DO NOT have to explain yourself.. ♥️ #quotes#quotestoliveby#quotesaboutlife#itsokay#itsokaynottobeokay#youarenotalone#thingschange#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealth

FRIDAY FEELS 💛
Bonus post from me today. This week's been a bit of a head fuck: no one major event but something of some kind in pretty much every single sphere of my life. I'm ok, but when I got home last night was feeling a bit...meh about myself. People often comment on my social media accounts that I do so much. Obviously part of this is because I use Instagram in particular to track things that make me smile, or make me feel good- a bit of a positivity diary. But part of it is truthful- I'm not very good at staying still. I want to do all the things, and also I worry that if I stop I'm left with my own mind, which in the past has not always been kind to me 😒
Which brings me back to being home alone last night and feeling a bit...meh. I usually have music on in the flat but wasn't in the mood, so flicked to podcasts and put on @dontsaltmygame. @laurathomasphd is always great to listen to, but she has @annasofiakessel on the show. I can't remember the exact topic of the episode but it was brilliant- for almost two hours I tootled around my flat doing chores (seriously, I can't sit still!) listening to their discussions and by the time I hit the hay at 11 I was just feeling better about life ☺️
8.5 hrs sleep and a sunny bike ride into work later I grabbed this picture in the changing rooms at work and I smiled. That'll do pig, I thought, that'll do- which is something I say when something is good enough 🐷
This post isn't going anywhere in particular so I'll stop waffling. Not sure what's in it for you- apart from the recommendation to listen to DSMG. But as I said sometimes this is here for me so, note to future me: remember to cut yourself some slack, sometimes you will feel meh, but you know what to do to sort that out and before you know it you'll be back on track. Oh and make sure you get enough sleep- because as much as you try and kid yourself that 6hrs a night is enough, it’s really not 😴
Sometimes we stress about growing older and not having our shit sorted. Life isn't always smooth sailing but be thankful you're here and remember it's never too late to become what you might've been! 😘
Hi friends 👋🏻 just a gentle reminder ✨ It's okay. It's okay to ask for help. It's okay to feel sad, or hurt or happy. It's okay to feel your emotions. It's okay to be scared. I hope you're doing well, I know holidays can be stressful. Take care of yourself and remember that if you need to take a second or a minute or longer to care for yourself, it's okay💕
'Had' is a great word. An undervalued word. "I 'had' anxiety" is something I've grown used to saying, without shame or embarrassment, over the last 20+ years. But this week I have to get my brain, mouth and typing fingers, around the word 'have'. Because I have anxiety right now. Enough to see my GP about it. Which came as a bit of a surprise really. (The second photo was me waiting for a lift home from work on Wednesday, hoping that wiping away tears, outside an Aldi, in the rain, is a rock bottom! ) And because I talk about anxiety here, and on my blog, it felt right to mention it this week. Don't worry about me, I'm tackling it before it gets out of hand, I'm in good hands ... and I'm surrounded by people, and zebras, who are looking out for me. And, of course, I'll still be posting about clothes, writing, and papery treasure ... because that's the good stuff. 😌 #ananxiouspersondoesstuff#anxiety#beatthestigma#mentalhealth#ihaveathingforzebras
