This is my little sister, Paityn. She's 17 and captain of the varsity golf team at her high school. She's been on varsity since her freshman year and is easily the best golfer (male/female) at her school. She's a straight A student, too. I am so incredibly proud of her and who she's becoming. Even though she's 11 years younger than me, I admire her. She is my best friend. She is also my biggest advocate and strongest support system. We talk on the phone almost every day around the same time. It's part of my daily routine. If she has something going on and can't call, she let's me know so I'm not stressed. She listens to me and never judges me. Last time I was in town, she watched the entire 1st season of Atypical with me to understand me better. She wants to be in my world. 👯💞🙏
Jumping in a little late on this one. But it was time to get my butt back on track with some IG challenges. #Repost @kitty._.dang (@get_repost)

Mmm hey, i've been so sad.. today I woke up with that feeling like I want to die, I want to give up, my mom told me she hates me like really??? You don't even ask me how I feel! I can stop thinking about how fat I look and it's annoying me a lot. I just cutted myself, and then I feel bad about it because "why i'm doing this to myself?" "Do I really deserve this?" Well, idk...
🍁 daily reminder!

Hoy estoy feliz. Por la mañana he llegado tarde a clase, pero esta vez no ha sido culpa mía sino de la lluvia (parece que cuando llueve la gente se olvida de cómo respirar, en serio). Pero por lo demás he tenido un día bastante normalillo. La única cosa que me ha descolocado un poco ha sido cuando esta mañana, en el metro, me ha parecido ver a una persona que no esperaba ver. Si, es una de las personas de las que me he "alejado" por un tiempo. Afortunadamente creo que no me ha visto (tampoco sé 100% si era él). A los 5 minutos se me ha pasado la sensación de nerviosismo y he seguido con mi día como si nada, ocupándome de mi misma. Sin darle más importancia.
Llevo aproximadamente dos semanas en este proyecto de realización personal y eliminación de la dependencia emocional, y ya estoy viendo resultados. De verdad, al principio parecía un mundo, algo imposible, demasiado doloroso para soportar y encima sola, pero ahora estoy aprendiendo a disfrutar de mi compañía, de los pequeños momentos, de no tener todo planeado, de dejarme llevar, etc. Aunque obviamente el crecimiento personal es un viaje para toda la vida, me habría quedado estancada en el mismo sitio para siempre si no hubiera dado este gran empujón. Estoy orgullosa de mi misma.

So I went to the doctors yesterday to talk about my mental health in terms of intrusive thoughts/OCD and my eating behaviour/emotions attached to food but I feel like I was totally brushed off by the doctor 😕 I wasn't expecting him to stop everything else and cure me but I was hoping he'd do something more than tell me everything is down to moving home and having big changes as a result so I should just wait and see how I feel when I start work.
I don't know if I should make an appointment to see another doctor or just not bother because I feel like I'm making a mountain of a molehill. Is someone else going to make me feel like there's nothing worth doing to make me myself again?
It's mentally exhausting. And it's not alright. I'm not going to share my stories, bc that's not my style; but power to the women who do ❤ I will say tho, that only my other half knows the details of the incidents. And only a few in my life even know that the incidents occured.
And it's not alright
Stay strong xx [If all the women who have been sexaully harassed or assaulted wrote "me too" as a status we might have a sense of the magnitude of the problem] #metoo
Im Moment ist alles ein bisschen arg anstrengend für mich. Diese Woche ist viel passiert was ich erstmal noch verarbeiten muss, aber ich bin umgeben von Leuten, auf die ich bauen kann und dafür bin ich unendlich dankbar. Und trotz allem kommt Morgen auf jeden Fall ein neuer Post von mir, wenn auch vielleicht etwas kürzer als der Letzte! —
Deep breath in. Deep breath out. Hey there, #PH360#fitfam Congratulations, you did it. You made it halfway through the week. How are you? Sometimes we get overwhelmed and caught up in the chaos of life, without reminding ourselves that we are as capable as we determine to be. If you have been feeling bogged down by the blur of daily routine, take time out of your day to unwind. Here are a few things you can do to reset your focus and remember how amazing you are: keep a gratitude journal, make a list of positive affirmations, confide in a good friend, write down all the things you love about yourself, ask your friends and family what it is they appreciate about you.
We believe in you. You got this.
did i scare you with my smile, razors protruding through the slits in my skin? did i scare you with my eyes, legs of spiders dripping with rain? did i scare you with my hands, bones uncovered by skin, tightening grip around neck? was it my neck that scared you, the temptations to slice, rip, choke? was it me that scared you, or the trip?
MID WEEK EXHAUSTION
One of the biggest issues of increased fat storage and decreased muscle mass is lack of restful sleep. Here are just some of the symptoms caused by lack of sleep. Our body needs essential recovery to enable us to reset our insulin levels, aid muscle recovery and provide mental wellness. There is always a recommended guideline for ample rest but the best I can advise is that everyone is individual. For myself Roughly 7-9 hours is sufficient rest to allow my body and mind to be alert in all daily life goals, for others it could just be 6 hours, however if you experience these symptoms you have to expect something to give out. Get the restful sleep and the body fat will drop.
This is one of my heroes—Dan Jansen! He’s an Olympic gold medalist in speed skating and also the coolest guy ever. Once I asked him how you handle the pressure of competing in the olympics and he said you have to be open to all the feedback in the world and you have to just pretend like you are at practice, doing what you’ve always done. I love his advice! Sometimes your anxiety may not allow you to be open to feedback. Last night my very best friend had to tell me something and after telling me said “please don’t be upset with me”. I was so sad because it was over something she can’t control so it wouldn’t be fair for me to be upset with her. After that, I realized that maybe I need to be open to not getting upset with people when everything doesn’t go according to plan. I think that’s great feedback! I want my friends to feel like they can approach me with anything. So, my goal this week is to try and be understanding of any feedback I get. It will definitely help in the long run and allow you to become closer to those trying to help you. Have a great rest of the week, mental health fam! 👍
