taking pictures of where I’m at always helps me get motivated 📸
this week there were definitely days where my energy levels weren’t so high and my motivation was not at a great spot 🎯
how did I overcome it?
I STILL went to the gym and surprisingly some of my bad days ended up with me having some of the best workout sessions🥳
I thought about WHY I started. I thought about how far I’ve come. I thought about how lifting makes me feel so strong💪🏻
I thought about how I wanted to prove others wrong that girls CAN lift and SHOULD lift💓
Because at the end of the day, it’s just you and your body. It’s HOW you view yourself and importantly HOW you feel in your own body👁
why am I telling you this?
because I want to show you that NO ONE is perfect. Even professional body builders like my coach doesn’t have motivation some days. But you know what she told me? GET IT DONE! ✅
Yes, you’re not always going to be motivated. You’re not always going to feel your best.
You’re not always going to smash a great session But we often rise when we fall. ✊🏻
PHYSIQUE UPDATE: I can confidently say that I’ve already gained 7 pounds!! 📈
And you know what? I’m happy about it. 🤗
I’m so 👏🏻 damn 👏🏻 proud 👏🏻
No where near where I want to be but excited about this progress 😉
Ready to gain more muscle👊🏻
Ready to start this new week.
Fresh start to continue to lift heavy 🏋🏻♀️
Fresh start to continue to eat right🍳🍇
Ich setze lieber mal für den kompletten Text ein TW, weil er sehr negativ ist.
Hey ihr, ich melde mich heute mal aus der Badwanne. Ich schreibe das hier nach meiner Selbstverletzung. Nachdem ich wieder schwach geworden bin. Ich sage das nicht gerne, weil ich Angst vor den Kommentaren hab, dass ich Hilfe brauche. Ich will es mir selbst nicht eingestehen und renne davor weg. Ein Bild von den "Wunden" werde ich nicht posten, da es mir einfach nicht zu "tief" ist. Ich weiß, dass die Tiefe nichts mit den Emotionen zu tun hat, die dahinter stecken, oder der allgemeinen Tatsache dass es überhaupt passiert ist. Ich weiß auch, es ist gestört, aber ich erachte diese kleinen Verletzungen nicht als "sehenswert" genug. Es hat einen Grund warum ich in meinem Umfeld ein riesen Geheimnis daraus mache. Es hat einen Grund warum ich so eine perfekte Schauspielerin bin und mir das niemand glauben würde. Ich habe jahrelange Übung darin Menschen etwas vorzumachen. Ich schäme mich so sehr dafür. Ich verabscheue mich, dass ich nicht aufhören kann. Ich weiß genau, wenn das rauskommt, wird sich mein Leben negativ verändern. Meine mom wird meinem dad die Schuld geben, weil er nicht aufgepasst hat und er wird ihr an den Kopf werfen, dass es wegen ihr überhaupt angefangen hat. Alles wird sich dann nur noch um dieses Thema drehen, es wird alle runterziehen. Für mich ist es momentan sehr positiv, in meinem Alltag unter Leuten, nicht ständig daran erinnert bzw gefragt zu werden. Ich kann einfach funktionieren und möglichst wenig Probleme bzw. Kopfzerbrechen bereiten. Ich muss nicht erklären warum es mir so oder so geht, was ich nebenbei gesagt eh nicht könnte. Ich will nicht das kleine, Psycho Mädchen sein, über dass mein dad so oft abwertend redet. Ich will nicht, dass alle in mir nur noch die Krankheit sehen, das würde mich noch kranker machen.
So I know I didn’t actually share a post with my February goals and it’s kind of because I felt silly. I struggle with really basic self care things sometimes when I’m feeling depressed or down- like I’ll shower or brush my teeth and change my clothes... but sometimes I’m literally in the bathroom and look at my face wash and toothpaste and just feel like I can’t even do it, EVEN THOUGH IM THERE ALREADY. Some nights, even though my pills are right next to my bed with a cup of water, I’m already covered up and I don’t even want to sit up to open the bottles. So my goals for this month were- 1. Wash my face 2x a day (even if it’s just with water); 2. Take my damn pills every night; 3. Stop throwing clothes that I literally just took out of the drawer onto the floor WHILE THE DRAWER IS STILL OPEN; 4. Go to bed by 10:30/10:45 on work nights. And yeah these are silly and simple to some people, but I’ve managed to meet every one of these goals most days so far and I feel so much better. So guys- self care isn’t all face masks and bubble baths and hot tea and blankets. Sometimes it’s literally deciding to take 5 seconds to brush your teeth and another 10 seconds to splash water on your face, because when you feel fresher you’re automatically even slightly happier. I find that when I do the bare minimum, I just automatically think ok let’s go a little more and then I’ve brushed my teeth and used mouthwash; or I splash water on my face so I add my face wash to it, then I decide that I might as well moisturize! And it makes such a difference, i feel so much more refreshed and even confident and proud that I did even 10% when all I wanted to do was crawl under a blanket. #selfcare#depression#mentalhealth#2019journal
My fav go to things when I’m starting to feel that anxiety creep up 💚 1. Stay away from social media (yah I know the irony of posting right?) but sometimes letting other influences and screen time into your head needs some time off. 2. Get outside. Fresh air, vitamin D and a big of nature, good for the soul. 3. Exercise, but in a way that will benefit your energy levels and mood. If your stressed you may simply need to do some stretches to calm the adrenals, if you’re feeling sluggish you probably need to bash out something energy releasing like a HIIT workout. If we get these totally the other way around. 4. Sleep, and lots of it. Sleep helps with everything. Seriously make it a priority. 5. Don’t comfort eat. It’s a quick fix, and it’s not providing any nutrients for body or mind. 💚 here’s to a lovely Saturday evening (Obvs doing all of the above!) .

There's no 'normal' in skin or beauty, everyone has their personal journey to discover what's right for their skin or body. We all have advantages and concerns and what works for another might not work for you. It can be easy to fall into self judgement and comparison especially in this time of social media influence. But remember your unique features are actually what make you stand out and what make you even more beautiful💗 Embrace your essence and pull your energy fully into yourself to activate your most radiant self from the #insideout✨ #dailyinspirations#radiantskin#unique#quotes#activate#selflove#selfcare#skincare#healthyperspectives#selfdoubt
There is a lovely (slightly hidden) cafe in Glendalough and it is just so relaxing to be in. The lady who owns it bakes everything herself and her scones are gorgeous! The cafe is in the conservatory in her home ❤️ I am feeling rotten today due to overworking this week so today this all I did - catch up on well deserved sleep and have a lovely cup of tea. Self care is so important which I really let go of this week and end result is I have crashed and burned myself out! I hope to be back to normal by tomorrow and hike the mountains once again ✨❤️ Remember - You can’t pour from an empty cup 😉
Absolutely swooning over @sophia_roe and her commitment to self-care ✨✨
“I also think the start of a new year is a great way to deepen the habits, rituals, and self-care routines that you already have in place...Starting a new year can feel like a lot of pressure to completely overhaul who you are, and transform into the most perfect version of yourself. Throw that away, and know that you’re already perfect, and in honor of how perfect you already are...let’s keep that self-love train and trend rocking full speed ahead.“ _
Who’s onboard? 🙋♀️🙋🏾♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏿♀️🙋🏼♀️
What a day... I honestly have dreamed of something like this for D is for Divorce since it’s inception in 2015. Today marked the start of what I am sure is going to be an incredible journey of even more self discovery and awareness. I got to spend the morning with a group of diverse, dynamic and fun ladies and if this is just the beginning I cannot wait for what is still to come. To all the ladies who are now part of our Self Love Club, thanks so much for sharing and listening, it means the world to me. I look forward to sharing my 30 days of self love with you all and vice versa and as motivation just keep in mind that “Self Love is the greatest middle finger of all time”. Will post pics of the event tomorrow. #selfloveclub#disfordivorce#selflove#singlemom#ilovemyself#bestlife#workforit#wedidit#selfcare
How do you take care of your mental health? Sometimes it’s good to just get away even if it’s 15 minutes from your home. Today, I came to visit a farmer’s market who allows visitors to feed their animals. For free!!! Spent some time with their rescues, and grabbed some of their goodies. Support your farmers, y’all ❤️ #selfcare#farmersmarket#supportyourlocals#supportfarmers#getaway
Make Saturday your self care day. Take the time to eat lunch, exercise, hang out with friends and free up your schedule. Most of us take “ hard work pays off” statement way too far and it becomes counterproductive. You push your self to the point that you can’t take it anymore, so one day, you just give up.
Self care helps you refocus on what’s important and keeps stress from taking over, so you can be more efficient. Self care doesn’t mean you are selfish, it means you are healthy. Taking care of your basic physical and emotional needs is the foundation of getting things done , but sadly, self care is the first thing to go.
Today, take time to focus on what really matters to you the most.

You will do great things despite your anxiety.
Yes, my palms get extremely sweaty when I’m surrounded by new people.
Yes, my heart beats so fast I think it may explode when I’m speaking or commenting on something in public.
Yes, I overthink the future, what if’s, and plan a hundred different scenarios in my head when I’m planning something.
Yes, I can be somewhat catastrophic when something doesn’t go according to plan.
Yes, I doubt myself a lot.
But also... Yes, I acknowledge my arising emotions and sit with them.
Yes, I talk back to my negative thoughts.
Yes, I have evidence that I’ve done great in the past.
Yes, I have hope and I have faith and I actually believe in myself deep down.
Yes, I know I’m capable of amazing things.
I will do great things despite my anxiety. .
And that doesn’t necessarily mean that I won’t be afraid. I might be terrified. My palms may leave sweat stains on my clothes.
But I’m gonna do it anyway. Because when it comes to chasing my dreams, not even fear can stop me.
It can make me think of horrible horrible things and it may make me think about just quitting and staying in my comfort zone just so I won’t have to do terrifying things.
But it won’t stop me. .
I will take deep breaths, I will journal, I will meditate and do yoga, I will talk to a friend about it, I may even cry it out. But I won’t quit. .
Courage was never the absence of fear. Courage is every time you kept going despite the fear, because you knew that what was on the other side of fear was worth it and bigger than that fear. .
In the end, it’s not so much about stepping out of your comfort zone, but about expanding that comfort zone. .
You will get through it. There is help available. Seeing a therapist helps, practicing gratitude helps, breathing exercises help, and a good workout helps. But surrendering to fear doesn’t. And please don’t hesitate to ask for help if you feel you might need it. .
Allow fear to be there with you when you’re doing something new and scary. Let it be a passenger. But don’t let it take the wheel.
Taking deep, intentional care of YOU is the most important thing. It's also the thing we often don't make time for, or don't feel comfortable doing, or feel selfish or guilty for prioritizing. We expect so much from ourselves, but expecting our own care to come first feels like too much -- often because of messaging we got growing up.
Taking care of you is the biggest gift you can offer this world. Here's why: when you feel taken care of and nourished, you have more energy to fight for others. You have more room to respond instead of react. You have more motivation to make change. You are more able to see the truth. You have more compassion to offer. You have more perspective to realize other people's "stuff" isn't about you. You have more time to spend doing what you love. You have more ability to practice true empathy. You have more space to recognize your own gifts and strengths. You have more openness to see your own deservedness of accepting love, support, and help.
So, gentle reminder: take deep, intentional care of you in all the ways you can -- even if it means not making as much time for something else right now. It is so important for you, for your community, and for the world.
Logging off for the weekend. Happy Saturday, my friends. ✌🏻
*Note: this doesn't mean you aren't worthy or helpful or valuable if you aren't able to take care if yourself right now; it just means that prioritizing ourselves when we are able to is the opposite of selfish, and allows us to later show up more fully when we are ready. Go at your own pace, at your own time. 💕

When we are faced with an unfamiliar situation it’s normal to feel scared 🌻Trying new things is scary, seeking to improve ourselves is scary, moving in a different direction is scary... do it anyways ✨🌻✨ #newdirections
