First post of 2020... This year I'm striving to be the best version of myself that I can be. I'm not doing it to impress people, the time for that has passed a very long time ago. I'm doing it so that I can see who I am capable of becoming. .
Just Iike you would attend to physical pain by going to see a doctor so you can heal it, so should you attend to emotional and mental pain. Emotional wounds can be healed with the right kind of therapy.
When I was in treatment I often had an idealistic view of what self-love looked like. I thought that once I “achieved it” then I’d never have a bad thought about my body, or myself, again. That I’d never think I wasn’t lovable again. But that was putting an INSANE amount of pressure on myself. Throughout my recovery, little moments of cutting myself some slack and giving myself a break built up to create the foundation of self-love. To this day, I count every time I recognise how hard I’m being on myself as a little self-love win. I count the times when I hold myself and cry as BIG self-love wins. Sometimes I feel good in my body and sometimes I don’t. But now I’d never try to change my body, only ask myself what’s really going on. Sometimes I feel fucking AMAZING and that’s great- but it’s not all day everyday. That’s just not realistic. But the fact is, self-love can be whatever you want it to be. It can be caressing your body lovingly or seeing yourself as a shining light. But sometimes it’s as small and as pure as a little voice in your head whispering “maybe it’s not true. All these years thinking that I’m shit...maybe it’s not true.” Love you all my wellness warriors. We got this. ❤️❤️❤️ #selflove#loveyourself#beyourself#wellness#recovery#recoveryispossible#power#love#innerpeace#bodypositive#bodypositivity#edrecovery#youarebeautiful#empowerment#eatingdisorderrecovery#youareenough#mentalhealth#mentalillness#goddess#womenempowerment#spiritual#healing#love#human

When we can change our story, we can transform our lives.
What do you say to yourself when you have a dietary slip up? ⏩"I can't believe it just did that?"
⏩"I can't do anything right?"
⏩"Why can't I get out of this rut?"
⏩"There must be something wrong with me!" I can say, I spoke all of these words to myself at one time or another, and it left me stuck, ashamed, frustrated, and DISEMPOWERED.
It was not until I began to really understand the biological effects that such negative self-talk has on the body.
Stress, and negative emotions contribute to inflammation which is now one of the largest contributors to all-cause illnesses.
And when we beat ourselves up over a poor food decision, we causes stress...increase inflammation in our body.
Not good, nor helpful.
By constant repetition of a self-loving statement, we can, overtime, begin to reprogram our brain and train it to believe it.
gather round... we need to talk about the free weight section of the gym.
Over the last few weeks I’ve heard 3 ladies refer to the free weight section as the ‘men’s bit’ and whilst yes, it’s usually inhabited by more of the unfair sex, it’s NOT THEIR SECTION. I repeat it’s not their section.
You pay your membership too so you have just as much right to use that section of the gym.
I know some girls worry that men will be looking at them and that girls worry they are doing something wrong, but let me tell you one thing I’ve learnt over my time working in the fitness industry - female form, in general, is usually much better than men’s ( sorry boys🤣) because our egos are smaller so we don’t need to sacrifice good form for the sake of looking strong to everyone else training. Plus if you are unsure of an exercise, men will often help you, again It feeds their ego to offer help to a member of the fairer sex!
And if any guy creeps on you and makes you feel uncomfortable, don’t be afraid to report it... the gym should be a safe environment for everyone.
It’s totally cool if you don’t wanna train in the free weights and you feel more confident in other sections of the gym, but let’s stop referring to it as the men’s section, because it’ll probably stop you ever venturing in there. It’s our section too 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 #whoruntheworld
Like the old saying goes..."the only way out is through"
For me, getting through the tough stuff is forcing myself out. That mostly looks like showing up and not isolating myself.
The showing up part means getting to social events or in-person groups and truly being there as myself. Imperfection is something I learned to hide and NOW I am relearning how to not feel so much shame arouns it.
I have a confession... ⠀
I’ve not really left the house without some form of makeup on since I was about 18, I’m now 31..⠀
My fear of being bare faced in public means that I’ve never had a facial, never gone snorkelling - I can’t remember the last time I swam with my head under water, never been camping and on the rare occasion someone has seen me without makeup, I’ve always found myself apologising for my appearance. ⠀
For me, makeup is an artistic expression, a creative outlet and something that I absolutely LOVE. I enjoy the process but I must admit it has also become my security blanket. ⠀
Makeup absolutely enhances our features but it shouldn’t be used to mask them and I’ve definitely relied on it as a confidence booster over the years - e.g if I was feeling self conscious or ‘puffy’, I’d just wear extra makeup and hope no notices.
I’ve been so used to presenting myself a certain way to the world that the mere thought of baring all, going makeup free and showing the unenhanced, raw version of me has me feeling exposed, vulnerable and terrified to be honest. ⠀
As much as I am confident in my body, I need to extend that to fully embracing my authentic, stripped back self too. So that’s the point of this post - to take responsibility for my own self esteem and prove that I am totally worthy of feeling confident no matter how I look. ⠀
I’ll always enjoy wearing makeup but I also strive feel confident leaving the house fresh faced and fear free because I am more than my appearance and looking pretty all the time isn’t the most important thing in life. ✨⠀
As my hubby always says “This is the Leah I love” and it’s time I started loving her completely and unapologetically as well 🥰 ⠀
Do you dare to be bare too? Tag me in your photos #daretobebare and drop me a comment below 💕⠀
Have you eaten any of these fruits before? Yellow dragon fruit is far superior to its pink skinned sister and is grown in places like Ecuador (holla!😎) and Colombia. Rambutan grows all over Southeast Asia. They’re both sweet, soft, juicy, and delicious! These @fruitsnrootz rambutan were some of the best I’ve eaten in a long time! They were perfectly red when I received them (as opposed to green-not ripe enough or brown-overripe and expired) and my Daughter and I enjoyed them sitting out front and letting the juice run down our hands the next morning 😋 #ThePinkCoconut

Does anyone else have internal sound effects for certain poses? That little lift up, squeeze in, and shift forward in bakasana sounds like “zzzhhhoooOOP!” in my head.

Beberapa kali kita memutuskan untuk berhenti melangkah bersama lagi.
Meruntuhkan perlahan harap dan mimpi soal merakit cita yang kita wujudkan bersama
Tak sedikit pula kita tenggelam dalam ego masing-masing, terlupakan semua hal yang sudah diperjuangkan berdua
Apadaya kita sebagai bagian kecil konspirasi Alam Semesta. Segala skenario dijalankan untuk kita kembali di pertemukan dalam satu meja, berbicara, berkompromi, kembali menyatukan misi dan visi kemudian melanjutkan jalan lagi
Tengkar dan beda pandangan menjadi jalan menuju dewasa menjalin hubungan
Kemudian maaf dan terima menjadikan kita melebur menjadi sejiwa
oooo she servin face and underboob honey, she a gift wrapped in a scarf 😤👀😛

From Chapter 5 (Settling Traps) of my upcoming book, Don’t Settle. The wound of a woman is the most sacred place in the universe. When you know and believe this, you can not allow an unqualified man inside. Sis know that you are sitting on a gold mine. You Are the Prize. Know Your Worth. Take yourself off the clearance rack and get behind the glass where you belong. Please know that it's never ”Just Sex.” Your body is a sacred place that should not be mishandled. When men have sex with you, sperm is not the only thing they leave inside of you. All of the mental, emotional, and spiritual residue is released in you as well. You wonder why you are off balance in your life or can't seem to leave someone you know is no good for you. You need to DETOX your wound spiritually...Join @jaelthegreat for her next wound cleansing session. This process is a must for ALL women - single and married. It will change your life. #savethedate#dontsettle#drlexy Peace & Blessings,

Glute growth 🍑⠀
If you’re like me (and most girls), growing da butt is one of my biggest goals !! There are a few ways that you can REALLY maximise your growth potential in and out of the gym:⠀
💥train glutes 3x a week⠀
💥a good mixture of hinge, thrust, abduction and squat/lunges movements ⠀
💥eat enough food !! ⠀
💥worship the glute god himself @bretcontreras1 ⠀
💥progressive overload ⠀
Apply these principles and I promise those gains will be coming in thicc n fast 🙏🏼⠀
Believe it or not, these shorts were baggy on me 5 weeks ago and now they’re giving me hungry bum 🤷🏼♀️ trust the process x
The fact that you can go to the toilet and "GO" without any stress is something to be grateful for. Your smile is a gift, your eyes that can read this post is a beautiful gift, your family and friends who love you, are reasons to be grateful.
While you are upset about not having money to buy what you would like, you are even depressed and refusing to EAT because of it. Know that there are others out there just lying somewhere, sick and wishing they could just eat.
This is normal, I think... That's why YOU too have to do your HOMEWORK before going into ANY relationship so that you won't end up getting angry at the wrong person... You can't expect a REAL friend NOT to cover up for his friend.
Help Me Pick 1, 2, 3, or 4 🙏🏽🙏🏽I am almost done birthing.my book: Don’t Settle. I know I have not been as visible on social media because God has been working on me as I poor my heart in this project. I hope you understand🙏🏽. I.need your help with picking an image for the cover of my book. Here is the summary to provide a little insight.
Don’t Settle: A Woman’ Guide to Abundance in Love and Life, is a thought provoking short read by Dr Lexy, star of Ready to Love Season 1 on the Oprah Winfrey Network. This book inspires and empowers women to overcome the societal bias and self-limiting beliefs stagnating their relationships, careers, and overall satisfaction. Dr Lexy presents a guide to help women gain clarity about who they are vs who they have become, define what they desire and deserve, and implement the actions to realize their dreams. Dr Lexy assesses some of the key challenges women face in love and life, addresses the consequences of settling, and provides strategies to overcome their fears. Don’t Settle is a call to action for women to take their power back NOW. Don’t Settle serves as a starting point for women to adopt a new mindset that says you are worthy of extreme success and irrespective of what the world has said or you have experienced, you are powerful, you can be happy, and you don’t have to settle. Peace & Blessings,

Comfy Chic ✨ So I have been really sick today, so it’s kind of the perfect day to talk about dressing comfy and cute! 💕 So when I tried on this wrap dress - I was not a fan. I’m always used to items that cinch in my waist and this style is definitely more of a relaxed fit - but after I looked at these photos, I started thinking. Isn’t ‘flattering’ subjective? So this dress doesn’t give me a ‘dream’ hourglass figure, but who says that’s the best version of ‘me’ anyway? Just because it’s the version of a curvy girl that has been reinforced to be ‘good’. When really, all bodies are good bodies. 🙏🏻 PS: damn she is coming through with the vulnerable captions as of late 😂
