This is important and it’s not easy to talk about or to admit.
I have struggled with my weight my entire life. Unfortunately, this has resulted in extreme difficulty with my accepting my body image.
The picture on the left is from 2015 - a time in my life where I was still down about 30lbs from my heaviest but maintaining a weight that wasn’t good for me.
The picture on the right is from July 2017 right before my competition.
The picture in the center is from last night.
I cannot describe the way I feel when I look in the mirror or at pictures of myself. I am struggling. With body image, body confidence.
I find myself feeling guilty for indulging, sometimes over-indulging. Then spending hours exercising a day to try to make up for it.
I’m searching for balance. For self-love. I will find it but I know it is not in any of these three photos.
It has been shown that #nutrition has very good benefits for brain organization. A new study has shown a link between certain nutrients and intelligence. .

All the #work you put in, in the dark eventually comes to light.
#success is not accidental but only person who will ever know that is you....

Outro dia, em um estabelecimento comercial, devido ao espaço limitado, acabei escutando conversas de outras pessoas que ali também estavam. Todas falavam com veemência, propriedade e/ou grande interesse:
“Você viu a fulana? Não vai conseguir nada daquele jeito. Tomara que quebre a cara!”
“Já não aguento mais esperar o jogo de Domingo! Com o ataque do jeito que está, vai ser fichinha. Se ganharmos, nem vou trabalhar na Segunda. Na sexta cedo já começo os trabalhos.
“Fraga aqui esse perfil do Insta! Têm altos vídeos da galera se fudendo, tipo pegadinha. Ontem de noite fiquei uma hora fragando os vídeos. Rachei de tanto rir!”
“Cê viu que mataram um lá no bairro afastado de outra cidade? Vi hoje no jornal de meio dia. Pois é! Tá tudo cada dia mais perigoso. Daqui uns dias tem que ficar esperto até dentro de casa e dormindo!”
“Vou ali jogar na loteria depois daqui. Dessa vez eu ganho!”
Sabe qual a característica marcante de todas essas pessoas que estavam falando sobre esses assuntos? Nenhuma delas dava indícios de ter uma vida extraordinária.
Se você quer ter uma vida extraordinária, não tem jeito: Tem que parar de colocar energia em coisas, pessoas e situações que não te ajudam em nada.
Such an honor to do life with this beauty. She amazes me every-time with her smile and her passion to advance the kingdom. You love, your life and your hope are contagious for everyone to see. Never love the wonder!

"Inale positividade, exale seus medos".
Frae: @mentor_milionario .
Sempre q tiver algo te incomodando, respire!!! Isso parece óbvio ne?
Mas às vezes fatos nos pegam de surpresa e não cuidamos de nossa respiração! É uma das principais formas de controlar sua fisiologia e de manter calmo é somente respirando mais e melhor!
Não deixe q os medos tomem conta de vc e te atrapalhem a ser a pessoa q vc quer se tornar! Lembre-se q o tempo vai passar de qualquer forma, e tudo agora será apenas uma lembrança em algum tempo!!
E por aqui segue o plano de ficar boa fazendo barra, aí inclui a paralela tb (as barras estavam do lado... não custa tentar tb né?? 💪💪 🤣🤣)
Um ótimo sábado a todos!
I'm reading a book on how one can "fulfill their potential" and to do this we must face challenges in order to grow.
Today, I definitely faced a challenge and stepped out of my own comfort zone and tried crossfit 😬 I'm a spin addict, a Zumba lover and gym junkie BUT crossfit I've never done before and guess WHAT...I did it ‼️I wanted to vomit afterwards (I didn't) but I did it! It was definitely a challenge but well worth the sweat 💦 .
The Poppy Copper Charger tank is built with copper lining technology to block nasty odors. It's perfect for all those push-ups and burpees I did today 😂
