In a world fixated with categories it's very easy to find yourself in a box with a label attached to it. One day you wake up and wonder how did I get here? Who said I was this thing? I don't recognise this about me!
You've got to know who you are above the noise, above the categories, above the labels and say yeah I know you say that about me but let me re-introduce myself to you ~ Hello world!
Nowadays people are always on the go, living hectic, fast-paced lives, spreading themselves thin and more often than not, choosing unhealthy options just to get by with the intention that tomorrow they will do better. They are looking for a solution that can easily fit into their busy schedule. They are tired, lacking the energy and vitality needed to keep up with the demands of their life.
Health has become a focal point with the rising obesity rate and food-related disease and illness. There has become more awareness and focus on the importance of health and fitness.
People struggle with the desire to look the way society portrays as "perfect" which is unrealistic vs. settling for reality. They want to look and feel better, but when they look around, they become convinced that feeling sick and tired is the "norm" and feel hopeless.
As a health, fitness & wellness coach, my job isn’t to be perfect, but to lead by example. I am proof that you can achieve a healthy and fulfilling life which will improve the overall quality of life without having to give up what is important or sacrifice even more.
I provide a safe haven for women who have lost their spark, and need a place to belong and a support system to teach them how to cultivate change and overcome fear so that they can become the best version of themselves. I provide friendship, a community where people feel heard, valued and loved. I provide a real solution and equip those with the necessary tools to create a healthier lifestyle for themselves which will have a ripple of fact on their whole family and generations to come. I hope women find themselves and create a version of themselves that they are proud of. I teach them how to focus on fitness and self-care, which leads to increased self-confidence, improved self awareness, a healthier relationship with food themselves & those in their life. I help women get unstuck and find a way to heal themselves from the pain in their past. I’m not just a health, fitness and nutrition mentor, I am a friend, a confidant and a nonjudgmental source of love and kindness.

............................ since I took my last sip of alcohol!
It’s funny how you outgrow what you once thought you couldn’t live without.
It’s funny how you don’t miss what once was part of your identity.
It’s funny how you can get A D D I C T E D to the feeling of having your SHIT TOGETHER!
It’s funny how I used to be a bad influence. I was the instigator. It’s funny how I used to be THE PARTY GIRL! I was the WILD CHILD! It’s funny how I used to be the person who made fun of sober people because they made me feel uncomfortable. I was an instigator and feared those who I felt were judging me
It’s funny how I’m now an advocate for SOBRIETY. It’s funny how no one has ever tried to make me feel uncomfortable like I used to do to others.
It’s funny how I’m still fun & haven’t lost my wild side. Turns out I didn’t need alcohol to be me.
It’s funny how my priorities have changed, my social circle, my interests and the way I live have changed. It’s funny how much my life has changed as I’ve come to accept the real me and learned how to navigate through my emotions.
From 🍺 booze hound to 💦 happy & hydrated in 725 days ... if I can do it, so can you. All you need is : • a strong desire & reason to change • leverage - what you’ll lose if you don’t change • a new habit [positive] to replace your addiction • a vision - what your life will be like because you decided to change your lifestyle & the way your story is written • a Support system + accountability • a strong mindset which can be achieved through personal development
"Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn't have the time to sit around and talk about you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's important to me is not others' opinions of me, but what's important to me is my opinion of myself."

I know my ideas on winning aren’t the most popular as I want every team to tie. I want every team to be a winner. I want every game to be a hard fought game for both sides, and I want the individuals to feel great about what they’re doing as human beings...whether they are coaches or players on winning or losing teams. I’ve spent too much of my life being in competition... losing who I was the whole time... I'm not doing that anymore.

Jag blev inte våldtagen eller utsatt för sexuella trakasserier och inte heller fick jag några knytnävar i magen eller fysiska hot men jag har upplevt en period i mitt liv då dagar präglades av ständig oro att göra fel, ständig ångest över begränsningar i sin vardag, vara kontrollerad och manipulerad; psykisk misshandel. Psykisk misshandel, för er som inte vet vad det är så är det återkommande dåligt bemötande i syfte att dominera, kontrollera, kränka, förödmjuka den man utsätter; detta är skadligt för den utsatta både på fysiska och psykiska plan och skadar självkänslan på lång sikt. Jag är evigt tacksam för att min familj, mina vänner fick mig att inse vad jag levde i, man var blind och levde i sin egna lilla bubbla. Man tyckte det var fullt normalt att få höra åsikter om vad som var rätt och fel, ständigt smsa om vart man var, ständigt avstå från sociala sammanhang för att slippa ta konflikter, att alltid vara nåbar och att få ta emot själsord och bli dumförklarad i takt med att självkänslan och självförtroendet sjönk till botten. Känner du igen dig? Isåfall så hoppas jag att du tar tag i det, tar till dig mod och kunskap och tar hand om dig själv - du är värd bättre. ❤️ Jag är tacksam över att jag kom där ifrån, idag är min självkänsla och självförtroende starkare och jag vet varningssignaler för det jag upplevde. Jag kommer aldrig sluta att stärka min självkänsla och jag kommer inte heller låta mitt självförtroende slinka emellan heller. Personlig utveckling är ett ämne som jag fick upp ögonen för under tiden jag fick hjälp och har fortsatt vara ett intressant ämne som jag alltid kommer vilja lära mig mer om. 🌸
Jag kan inte beskriva med ord hur glad jag är över att kunna vara mig själv och att jag faktiskt duger som jag är. Jag är tacksam för att mina nära och kära och pojkvän fått mig att inse det. ❤️😘 Ni vet vilka ni är 💕
I’ve never had a big booty. I tried growing a booty by doing nothing but squats. I wasn’t eating enough to build muscle and I wasn’t targeting the right muscles but over the past 11 weeks I’ve been doing all the right moves and eating all the right stuff and I swear I’ve put on 5 lbs of muscle in my glutes! Are you more of a lunge or squat girl??
This is so true and so me!🙈#repost @mamas_scrapbook (@get_repost)
#GROWTOBER Day 17 •Insecurity to Security•
One of the things about insecurity is that we question our own worth, looking to external things such as people, utterances and actions to orientate ourselves on the sliding scale of 'worthy to worthless'. This is tricky, and fickle. A lot of the time we base our understanding of our worth upon assumptions rather than facts - we believe we know what someone is thinking about us (or that they are thinking about us at all), or what one look in our direction might mean. And lets face it, most of the conclusions we come to, are negative.
Of course, insecurity is more complex than just the assumptions we hold of what others may think of us, but this is one large element we can begin to change that affects how secure we are in ourselves.
We can decided to stop ourselves going off on a tangent, a spiral, a story about something we don’t really know about. We can stop giving people the power to dictate our worth.
Security has to come from inside - a belief that we are of innate worth, regardless of what we believe people think, do or say. This is a big and complex challenge (read my blog and watch my youtube for more tips on this), but once we become more conscious on these powerful, and often incorrect assumptions we make, we can certainly make a difference.
Over the last three years since becoming a mother, I have become more secure in myself than ever. I have started to value my own voice and worth in place of crippling insecurity (although often hidden with seeming confidence). Partly because I just don’t have the energy or headspace to dwell on the same anxieties that I used to, but also because I’ve been through a journey of stopping giving everyone else the power to tell me what I’m worth (It’s a journey I’m still on, don’t be fooled). #psychology#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealth#value#selflove#selfcare#selfhelp#selfdevelopment#selfworth#selfworthquotes#psychology#therapy#therapy#mummy#mumlife#mumoftwo#mumstyle#lipstick#iphone#keys#flatlay#money#mother#motherhood#mommy
