This girl did her first unassisted neutral chin up on Saturday and today did two reps! It is something I never thought I could achieve and now I am excited to get on the bars and give it a go!!! Anyway, I am away for work the next month and I am extremely anxious about my nutrition because it is tough to keep healthy and proportioned when there are so many undesirable options around me and people encouraging drinking etc. However- my approach will be to take each meal as it comes and try to keep healthy snacks on me then not be hard on myself if there is a poor choice here and there. This girl is in control of her life, she has so much to achieve, is strong and has got this!!! #keeping_claire#chinups#gymselfie#work#travel#choices#bekindtoyourself#enjoylife

Just not by pills, water or any other crazy fad being circulated round the internet.
@cartergood sums it up perfectly in this infographic
Don't fall for the hype. There are no shortcuts to this. If a pill/powder/supplement promises you fast results with minimal effort - question why doctors aren't prescribing it to prevent the obesity crisis we're facing.
Real, nutritious food and exercise are the key. They won't be quick fixes but they will work. Love and care for your body, nourish it daily and practise positive self talk. You are what you tell yourself.
If you want to change your body, start by changing your mind. You don't need to be extreme.
Want to go Vegan? Start by going vegetarian one day per week, build up then repeat.
Want to lose weight. Start by adding extra vegetables into your diet, reducing portions of calorie dense food. Make swaps for lower energy choices.
Life is not black and white and not do your choices have to be.
Happy Monday guys ✌🏽 #nutrition#sportsnutrition#nutritionist#isleofman#choices#smallsteps#postivevibes#postivelife
Title: The Sentence Of Life
Size: 24 x 30
We are always given choices. That is the essence of life, making it truly your own. In this vast universe, one is always able to decide his future and where it may lie. No one has the luxury of living forever. We are all at the mercy of the ticking clock. It is in this urgency however, that we arise to be become who we are. It is in this limited sense of living we have that we can decide what to do with what little time we have. And so each and everyone us paddles through life, making decisions here and there, balancing whatever needs to be weighed. However, we must also not forget that because life is fleeting, we accept the beauty that wraps it. That it is why we learn to value and hold things dear. That is why we are ever so careful not to lose the things that make our time worth all the hardships we endure. Life is about weighing and making decisions. So we row...row... and row our own little raft.

When you get knocked down or beat down by life - I call this the universe throwing a "curb ball" at you.! 💡
This happens to us everyday - some days it's very minor - someone accidentally bumps you or pushes in or you lose something and then it appears again - other times it's worse - you actually physically get hurt...! This is when all the little curb balls that have been thrown at you for some time were not noticed - so a big one to really stop you in your tracks is thrown.! 😣
I spent yesterday for a few hours really down and frustrated that I hurt my lower back while doing bent over rows at the gym and started blaming and getting annoyed - until I realized and reflected why this happened to me in the first place.! ❤️ Remember - curb balls are always being thrown at you - and your choice is to catch it and hold onto it and be angry and frustrated and blame others or catch it and reflect on the situation and what lesson/s it revealed and then throw it back.! We always have a choice... so next time life throws a curb ball your way - get the lesson and ALWAYS throw the ball back ✨🔥💫🙌🏼✨😋
There has been a bit of discussion about mordanting lately so thought I would share my mordanting process. Every natural dyer makes a choice that suits them, mine is Symplocos. I love that it is all natural, I love how it prepares the cloth for dye and I love the ethical concept of supporting foundations such as the Bebali Foundation who support and empower women and isolated communities. This is also why I use Khadi, it supports and empowers artisans and their communities in rural India. I have made this conscious choice not because it's quick and easy as you shall see! It portrays my ethics in my work. Before I even mordant I have scoured the fabric ready to mordant. Stages of mordanting are: red turkey oil - then dry - gallnut overnight - then rinse and dry - symplocos- rinse and dry. Yay! Now I can play with colour! #natural#mordant#footprint#ethical#khadi#sustainable#patience#choices#communityprojects#pebbleinthepond#naturaldyes#happyoutcome#process#arttowear
What would you choose?
A job with a fat salary, but also the job you don't enjoy doing?
Or a job that provides you with a salary that's enough for maintaining yourself, and you also happened to enjoy the job?
It's so easy yet hard to choose. Because, money seems to be everything in the present world. A force so intense that it seems to blow a gust of dust over the stuff you're passionate about.
Personally, I'm passionate about writing and animals. Combining them, I get job offers like Zoologist, Wildlife Photographer/Writer, Veterinary Doctor, etc. Now, not all of them promises me a fat salary or will have me counted under the most rich person or something like that. But, it would have me in a forest, with birds singing, wind howling; something that will please me. But, it would require some sacrifices like staying away from my family. Not being in contact with my loved ones for months, because the places I'd be staying in might not have the advantages of the internet, etc.
But, it's something I'm passionate about. And, I'm willing give up whatever I have for it. Because, I just don't want to regret being stuck doing a job I don't enjoy. For me, money can never overpower over my will to do something for those creatures living out there. Nature awaits for me.
