After a rough couple days I decided push myself as best as possible in the gym but also acknowledged my body when it needed to take it slow.
Sometimes you’ll go through rough patches & you can push through them but sometimes it’s okay to take it slow & listen to your body🖤

I have lost 5kgs in 5 months 👙
No strict diet plan
No counting calories
No weighing my food
No intense cardio
Just small, incremental, MANAGEABLE adjustments.
And I had chocolate & ice cream every.single.week!
I actually CHOOSE to gain weight in the winter months
And I CHOOSE to lose weight in summer.
I have done it every year for 8 years now.
I literally have control of my body composition 😁
I am 54 this year!!
What could you learn from how I approach my body & health?
You certainly DO NOT need to lift weights to apply my philosophy.
You don’t even need a gym membership!
If you did even half what I do you would see AMAZING results.
As all my clients do!
And I used to suffer from a seriously dysfunctional relationship with my body.
Anorexia that turned into the binge/starve eating disorder.
My obsession with skinny was all consuming.
Felt like a failure that I couldn’t purge after a binge.
So I punched my belly numerous times begging for the bloat to go away.
Substance abuse, excessive alcohol, depression, self-medicating, over exercising with excessive cardio!!
IBS, chronic UTIs, headaches & fatigue.
FULLY recovered from it ALL!
STOP dieting & body loathing gorgeous.
You will NEVER achieve your dream body with this approach.
Nothing positive can EVER be achieved through hate.
You are literally starving yourself on all levels that will have SERIOUS long term health affects.
The secret to your dream body is love & nourish!!!
You CAN lose weight easily.
You CAN feel delicious in your skin.
You CAN feel sexy!!!
And rock that goddess confidence!!!
I will teach you gorgeous 😘

One of the best pieces of advice I could ever offer a bride to be is "no amount of tears will make the sun come out" 🌞🌧
There's always so much emphasis on hoping it is a sunny day on your wedding day. We particularly chose our wedding venue because we could have had our ceremony on the cliff edge overlooking the Wollongong Coast. The entire month of our wedding was blue sky and sunny and at about 8 pm the night before our wedding it started raining and didn't stop until the day after our wedding.
This meant that our ceremony outside was cancelled and we were lucky to be able to be put inside as a Plan B a few hours before our ceremony was meant to start because a car club had pulled out of their event at the same venue 🤞🤞🤞 Benji was relived with the news because he didn't want to make me upset having to decide to put our ceremony inside and I was relieved because it meant our guests wouldn't get wet and cold if we had to stay outside!
Long story short I was getting my hair and makeup done and the vendors were commenting on how calm I was and I remember I said "no amount of tears will make the sun come out so theirs no point in getting upset" I'm so grateful for my bridesmaids who also kept me positive and reminded me that this day was happening because I was marrying my best friend! The rain was not going to change that! It also meant that I had to cancel on the spot $600 worth of transport organised to take the bridal party to the beach for photos but I was lucky the rain stopped for 15 minutes and we got to take the most amazing photos!
Theres always going to be things in life that don't quite work out but it's your attitude thay really makes the greatest impact and lasting memories 💫🌬

Who loves the scent of lemon 🍋🍋 Natural, handmade soap bar, scented with a deliciously refreshing blend which includes pure essential oils of Lemon, Mandarin, Lemongrass, May Chang and touched with a hint of Cedarwood to give this bar a clean, refreshing scent that brightens your day and brings a smile to your face. A lovely natural soap with the primary citrusy scent of bossy Lemon.... The fresh, lemony – orange aroma comes from tangy lemon, juicy mandarin and fresh lemongrass. When you close your eyes, you’ll feel like you’re walking through a mandarin orchard while eating your lemon meringue pie
Raise your hand if you’re being your best #babygrandma on this beautiful Friday evening 🙌🙌 PJs on by 8pm, dinner had, tea in my mug, Netflix fired up...anyone else?
Great, you are my people 😍.
AND there are so many of you that are NEW(ish) around here!!🙏.
So here’s what you need to know::
💫I’m 36, live in Seattle but my heart has always kinda been in #SoCal .
💫I’m a 4th grade teacher and a Mama and I believe the whole ‘balance’ thing is bullshit. More on that soon 😉.
💫Three words: Carbs, Caffeine, Curves.
💫I’ve spent my life on diets, trying to shrink my body. Nearly 3 decades. And I’m done.
💫I believe we are all worthy of the things that help us to show up as the badass we want to be, and that help us show up as our best self.
💫I believe that women can change the world.
💫I spent a lot of my life being quiet and careful about my views and opinions. Also done with that ✅.
💫I believe we all have a story - and I believe it is our superpower.
💫We talk a lot about self love and acceptance around here ❤️.
💫If you are looking for inspo and conversations about the profound relationship we have with ourselves, you’re in the right place.
💫If you are looking for an account that shows real life photos and talks about real life shit, you’re in the right place.
💫If you need some big thighs and cellulite in your feed, you’re in the right place.
💫If you are working on finding confidence and love when you look in the mirror, Sis, you can sit with us.
I’m so happy to share in this journey with you ❤️ Tell me what you’re doing on this crazy 🤪 Friday night! 👇m.
It’s no coincidence that for the first morning in 3 weeks including the painful days post op, today was the first day I cried. Like real woe is me tears. Because my mom left yesterday. And trust me I’m 100x better than I was two weeks ago and the light at the end is bright. But this morning for the first time in a little while I am so lucky for the extra hands to help with the kids, there was no one taking care of me. And so I got my own ice pack and juggled my own coffee on crutches and tried my best to pick things up as they fell. I’m going to have my well earned coffee now and feel just fine in a few minutes. But I just wanted to document that moment at 35 years old that I cried, I want my mommy.
