not pictured (but also eaten) fried pickles and french fries . taco salad, vinaigrette, stout, and some fried goodies.. . in the past, having a meal like this, I would have felt like I was contradicting myself or being “bad” or I likely wouldn’t have really tasted or enjoyed eating any of the food in front of me. and you may have your own thoughts that pop up when seeing a meal like this. but I’d like to share what this eating experience felt like to me (and what it felt like *to me* is all that matters, not someone else's food rules or diet culture beliefs) . I thought to myself, ‘what’s the healthiest choice I can make tonight without feeling like I’m depriving myself?’ and then.. I did that. no guilt, no feeling of lack or worry that I would “get enough.” and the best part? I was present and got to concentrate on the person I was with and our conversation rather than inner turmoil and overthinking every bite. . Hellooooo food freedom!
😾Y’all. I am soooo sick of talking to women who want to change, who NEED to change, but REFUSE to commit to taking action in doing so. I have talked to so many women this week alone who tell me they want to lose weight to . ✨Feel more confident and like themselves again ✨Keep up with their growing kids ✨Feel sexy for their partner ✨Feel healthy, vibrant and joyful But when it comes down to it they are FULL of excuses and limiting beliefs . 👎🏻I can’t afford it 👎🏻I don’t have time 👎🏻I don’t know how 👎🏻I’m too tired 👎🏻I want to wait until... . What the fuck!? Seriously, what. The fuck. Don’t you see THESE very excuses are what have gotten you to where you are today? You can try to tell me they aren’t excuses all you want, but the reality is YOU ARE CHOOSING THESE THINGS OVER WHAT YOU SAY YOU WANT. By allowing these excuses to dictate your current reality you are CHOOSING to say no to the other possibilities. So I want to give a SHOUT OUT to the women who have already committed to changing their lives before one more day goes by where they feel shitty, uncomfortable, exhausted, or disgusted with themselves. For those ladies and to anyone else who joins The Get Strong Academy before January 1st I’m gifting an additional 2 weeks of support— my treat! So if you are ready to take massive action towards creating a beautiful, strong, new you NOW, and not wait or put it off til the new year (bullshit) please DM me to find out more information or click the link in my bio to set up a call! 2019 is 2 weeks away!! A LOT can happen in two weeks! So start NOW! . . #strongnotskinny #selfloveclub #strongher #strengthfeed #wonderwomenmentality #strongisthenewbeautiful #mentalhealthwarrior #breakthestigma #wellnesslifestyle #wineentrepreneur #winelover #wineoclock #ladybosslifestyle #bosslady #businesschicks #girlpower #onlinetraining #fitgirlvideos #getfitwithme #fatlossjourney #bodytransformations #weightlosstip #howtolosefat #strengthcoach #weightlossprogram #transformationcoach #wanttoloseweight #eatrightnotless #workoutideas #noexcuses
I used to HATE my legs so much that I didn’t even own a pair of shorts... besides maybe some baggy gym shorts.... Through lifting HEAVY ASS weights and time, I have shaped them and love them. . They are super strong legs. . Lifting heavy does not make you bulky ladies (and gents), diet makes you bulky 😬 ... #womenwholift #youcanchangeyourbody #fitnessgirl #strongwoman #fitnessmotivation #weightlossjourney #fitnessmodel #breakthestigma #npcbikini #bodybuilding #fitfam #fitnessgoals #consistency #hardwork #trainlikeagirl #fitchicks

So we are approaching 6 months in our family recovery and we have finally cleaned out the booze cabinet. There’s a lot of reasons we kept it around... but I think the important part of this whole post is that our family is more important than the booze. Thank you to the great people and instafriends that have supported us on this journey. And if you or your family is on a similar path, let’s be friends, isolation is the last thing anyone needs! . . #sober #soberaf #recovery #soberliving #newhobbies #newhabits #sobermom #soberrevolution #soberfun #soberwomen #sobermovement #soberisbetter #soberisfun #soberrocks #teetotaler #nomoredrinking #freedom #momofthree #teetotaler #soberlife #recoveroutloud #breakthestigma #sobermovement #familyrecovery #alanon

Some people will find your story hard to hear. This should not stop you from telling it. It may be that they are not equipped to help you as you need it and they recognise that. They may have their own story they aren’t in touch with. Seek out safe connections; a counsellor with whom you feel safe, someone who aligns with your spirituality or faith, a friend who listens to hear not to respond. There are people who will hear you. You will know. Be brave. #storiesmatter #Worth #Worthy #Meaningful #Seen #Heard #Loving #Love #Relationships #Friendships #Healthyrelationships #Value #empoweryourself #empowered

Radar Hill is a tiny hike at the tofino end of the Pacific Rim National Park. Its a quick trek but this place had a few sweet spots. Like this pad for a future statue of me. I used it to quickly plot my next moves.

@deepikapadukone opens about her personal experience with depression. Over 300 million people around the world suffer from depression. It is known to be the leading cause of disability worldwide [World Health Organization]. As fellow human beings it is important for us to cultivate a culture that promotes healing rather than stigma. As you will see from Deepika's video, depression is not something a person willingly has. It is truly weighing on a person's every day life making it difficult for them to do simple things like getting dressed or getting out of bed. Depression and other mental illnesses are not a choice. Treatment and support help people cope with mental illness but a lot of people are hesitant to reach out because of stigma that is unfortunately present in our society. You can do your part in helping people seek help simply by promoting speech that is encouraging of recovery and support, and staying away from judgmental speech in every day conversations about mental health. You never know if the person you are speaking to has been impacted by mental illness or has a loved one who is struggling. #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #selfcare #selflove #health #goals #suicide #depression #anxiety #grief #breakthestigma #speakup #psychology #mindfulness #meditation #selfhelp #PTSD #breakthestigma depression #anxiety

WINTER time. This season let’s promote giving and understanding. Let’s give people our time and do something nice for them, anyone that needs help. And let’s be understanding. The best way to create awareness is to be understanding. Happy season! 🎄|| INVIERNO. Esta temporada promovamos el dar y el entender. Demos a la gente que lo necesite nuestro tiempo y nuestra ayuda.

Let’s talk about what’s on your mind and #breakthestigma
Very emotional day today. Struggled would be an understatement. We can't be happy all of the time, its impossible and unbelievably unhealthy to attempt it. I think #mentalhealth is still a very difficult thing to express and talk about, however it is vital that we do.

You can throw this myth right in the trash. Check out and follow @mothersmary_hq for more! ・・・ We’ve kept the most common stereotype for last! 🌱🌱🌱 “Stoners are lazy” has to definitely be THE oldest stereotype; lazily lying around, sleeping or pigging out on food are part of this stoner” culture of unproductivity has been prevalent in media and society for many decades. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The stigmas surrounding people who use cannabis are never ending, the time is now, in this era of Canadian legalization to change the script. We are wrapping up this edition of our #cannabismyths campaign with a truly inspiring story. @Melomomentz ; mom, journalist, activist, entrepreneur, shares her personal story with chronic pain and how cannabis enhances her quality of life. 💚🌱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “My symptoms decreased. I slowly began to wean off of my prescriptions and my quality of life increased three fold. [...] The people that looked down on me and blamed “my pot addiction” often comment that they are proud of the success I have made. A lot of them now even come to me for advice and education.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Read her amazing story, on how others not only denier her chronic illness but also tried to blame her cannabis use!

WHAT’S WORSE THAN A PANIC ATTACK?! 💩 (<< hint.) . Oh ya know, just a panic attack/depressive breakdown paired with an IBS flare up! 💁🏼‍♀️👀 . This week didn’t start out pretty... after almost 2 weeks of trying to sneak in little “cheats” that I KNEW wouldn’t add up to anything great 😅 my body was like NOPE. 🙅🏼‍♀️ and I went from being in bed thinking I was gassy to OMG WAKE TF UP AND GET TO THE BATHROOM 🚽😱😵 . The same old pains I used to have 2+ years ago were BACK, and they weren’t messin’ around. ☠️ I played with fire and got BURNED. 🔥(CBG formula from @thoughtcl0ud has been CLUTCH for inflammation thoughhhh 👏🏼 use code GINA to save $$ if you ever try it out!) . Add to that? When my gut gets thrown off, you bet your ass my anxiety goes through the roof... . Cue my FULL ON UGLY CRYING 😭 and having a mental BATSHIT BREAKDOWN because my husband mentioned some of the financial ins and outs of being a social media influencer that I needed to be organized about (aka tracking gifts from companies, etc. ✌🏼) . That turned into a whole big ordeal, y’all. 🙈 And then, it was fine. He helped talk me down and encouraged me to get in my workout the next day and take the reins back... and I was GOOD. . This is THE QUICKEST I’ve ever bounced back from an IBS/Anxiety episode - between my support system and the lifestyle I CHOOSE to live DAILY.... . I’VE GOT THIS SHIT ON LOCK. 🙌🏼 . How do you bounce back from a breakdown? What helps you find yourself again? 💕⤵️
I recently had a conversation with a co-worker about social media and the on-line persona. She explained, "No one posts when they're sad. No one posts when they're crying." And she's not wrong. What I did say to her is while I'm not highlighting my lows, I'm trying to be honest. To speak my truth and what I'm feeling in that moment. At this time, I had to repost from @postsecret A lot of only my closest friends know this, but I'm a runner. I give a job or profession 2 years at max. I'm constantly floating from one location to the next. And when things get too rough, when I feel overwhelmed, or confused or misunderstood, I run away. I linger in bathroom stalls just long enough to wipe away tears and plaster back on a smile. I catch the next flight to the farthest destination and pretend like my issues don't exist. Like there aren't problems to face. Or things to deal with. I let the euphoric high of a new destination, new foods, new culture, drown out the dull hum of real life in the background. And when I get home I smile, I laugh and thank people for the modest compliments about being so brave to see the world on a whim. I told a friend I was trying to take 2019 to face some of the troubling things I was running from. This weird fear of abandonment or loss. How I let people define my worth. The fear of missing out. I joked that by facing my problems I was using my usual crutch of traveling. "Can my coping mechanism become the thing that helps me get to the root of the problem?" Honestly, I don't know. I'm looking to 2019 with a little more clarity. I want to be a person that is honest with how they feel and not use the knee jerk response of, "It's okay. I'm fine," when something is obviously upsetting me. I want to give so much love to the anonymous person who had the courage to post their secret. What I say to them is, you're not the only person running. And whatever it is you are running from, you've got the courage to face them. From one person facing their faults, you got this. ❤️ #anew2019 #nomorerunning #facingtheproblemheadon #nocowardlylionhere #speakup #breakthestigma #positivity #mentalhealth
"When being screened for Depression, my doctor asked “What do you feel?” I answered out loud for the first time in ages; I felt nothing, I was empty, I was numb. That’s when I knew. Being asked the difficult questions is what puts you on the road to survival. The first time I told a friend about living with Depression, she asked if I had thought about suicide. “No, but I don’t feel the need to live either.” Her question didn’t come as a shock or an attack, I felt relief. Relief knowing I was surrounded by the right people who would do everything within their capabilities to ensure my happiness. Asking the difficult questions is what you can do to help. Today, I am happy and I am well. An instrumental part of my personal recovery has been becoming an apheresis donor. By giving blood biweekly for the past three years, I have been confronted with a feeling often lost through Depression. I feel alive. I’m reminded that I am alive. I’m reminded that I survived.

ANOREXIA. This is an informative post. It may be triggering to people with a history of anorexia. Anorexia is an eating disorder characterised by restriction of intake, obsession with weight loss, and sometimes exercise, laxative or purging. Physically, it can (but does not always) lead to: - an unhealthily low weight - low bone density (osteoporosis) - low blood pressure, causing dizziness and/or fainting - weak muscles - organ failure - hair loss - poor circulation - extreme coldness - dehydration Socially, it can cause the sufferer to: - isolate themselves from peers and family - become more secretive - become disinterested or unengaged - be unable to maintain a conversation - exclude themselves from social gatherings or outings Psychologically, it can cause or be caused by: - low mood - anxiety - perfectionism - competition and comparison - obsessional thinking - impaired cognitive functioning due to malnutrition MYTHS: •"Anorexia is caused by magazines and social media." No! Or at least, not for the majority. Anorexia is caused by a variety of different triggering and maintaining factors. •"All people with anorexia are super skinny and people who are super skinny are anorexic." No and no! This is so invalidating for sufferers, propelling them into a cycle of feeling that they are not "sick enough" and consequent prolonging of treatment. Anorexia is a MENTAL illness!! •"People with anorexia are vain and attention seeking." Double nope - people with anorexia are unwell. They are deserving or attention, just like anyone else, but often deny it, claiming that everything is "fine". People with anorexia tend to hide their illness from those around them, as though it is a secret. •"Anorexia is just for girls." Incorrect! Boys suffer too and their experiences are just as real. Anorexia is an evil illness. It snatches more lives than any other mental disorder due to a combination of death by suicide and by medical complications. Anorexia destroys families, it destroys friendships and it destroys relationships. If you notice the signs, get help. Please. You are valid. Add your own experiences below ⬇️

Nothing but positivity this weekend ✨
Take a look around. Think of one person or thing you're grateful for. Now think about why as you connect to it on a deeper level. Next you get to choose to live with this feeling of gratitude as you enter each new day. If you are feeling down, don't shame yourself you can explore why you're feeling this way ❤ . . #cptsd #ptsdrecovery #depressionawareness #panicattack #stress #mentaldisorders #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealthrecovery #grief #abuse #counselling #psychotherapy #sexualassault #survivor #youarenotalone #breakthesilence #breakthestigma #ptsd #trauma #recovery #anxiety #spinalcordinjury #followback #grateful #disability #traumainformed #traumarecovery #hope #healing
NOT ALL BUDS ARE THE SAME !! I have dabbled& spent some personal time trying a variety of strains -thanks to my medicinal licence, friends with good bud and now 🇨🇦 legalizing (thankyou thankyou) I’ve found a lot of what I like andddd also what doesn’t make me feel nice at all !!!( paranoid, lethargic, nauseas) it’s important to know that this is the reality. Not all strains will work for you and some people it’s just not there thing. And that’s ok too!! Personally my fav strains right now are ‘grape god’ and ‘crystal.’ Yummy hybrids resulting is a euphoric, relaxed, uplifted, clear minded feeling. (For me) In addition I’ve been taking cbd tincture for anxiety and chronic pain. Recently I started vaping CBD and I’m LooOOving that too. Happy to share more if anyone is interested in my pot ramblings ❤️💋 #canadiancannabis #girlswhosmokeweed #andhavedegreesandtimejobs #breakthestigma
Never forget to call, drop a note in the mail, email, stop by, and/or text those whom you love. Let them know you are there and that you care. You never know when it’s needed the most...and sometimes they don’t either. 💗🙏🏻💗 __________________________________ #winniethepooh #piglet #eeyore #depression #reachout #bekind #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #chemistrynotcharacter #breakthestigma
