REAL TALK | BODY FAT
You do NOT get to decide where your body fat goes, and though you may be different than I am, Ithink it’s incredibly helpful to bring this topic to light and explain it.
In the photo on the right,
▪️I was still <120lbs after competing, but my body and it’s hormones were all out of whack.
▪️All excess body fat went to my stomach.
▪️I had very low estrogen at this point, and
▪️it’s common to see that change of body composition when gaining weight is lack of estrogen is present.
The photo on the left is current.
🔹My body has gone through major changes in the past year (since the first photo)
🔹I now store most of my body fat on my lower back, lower abdomen, and my inner thighs.
🔹As females (with proper hormonal balance), our body wants to protect all organs involved when having a baby, hence the reasoning that most fat is stored in the inner thighs, glutes, lower abdomen, and hips. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅ If you have healthy hormone levels,
✅ you are female, and
✅ you see that you store most of your body fat in the areas mentioned above,
🙅🏻♀️don’t be angry with your body, and
🚫don’t try to “workout your lower abs” to change it lol.
Simply focus on overall body fat reduction while embracing YOUR SHAPE, and have some grace.
This makes the process 10x more fun 😉

We’re accustomed to speed in our modern society. We expect our technological gadgets to work fast, and we’re horribly impatient when things are lagging behind. We have a need for speed, and a slow Internet-connection might be the worst thing to happen to us.
Yes, our technology is amazingly fast, and many of us want the same type of speed in our personal development.
The problem, however, is that while technology is fast, we’re surprisingly slow in comparison.
Fortunately, improvement is lifelong. We don't have to worry or stress about it. If we just keep at it, we can improve massively over the course of our lifetime. Do the small things right, do them every day, and you'll be improving steadily. As Tony Robbins said, "Most people overestimate what they can do in a year, but underestimate what they can do in a decade."

“Being brave isn’t the absence of fear. Being brave is having that fear but finding a way through it.” Bear Grylls
That’s as close to the edge as I could manage. I am terrified of heights. Yes, I’ve done a zip line before, but the fear of heights (maybe it’s more the fear of falling off the edge) is still there. I think it always will be.
Fear and anxiety aren’t something that just go away. It’s a constant battle every day to fight through it. No matter what the fear is, we all have them and are all fighting through them every day.
This is why being kind to others is so important. You never know what fears and anxieties someone is battling. ✌🏻❤️
I face a lot of fear every time I pursue life purpose work. It’s not the kind of fear that tells me what I’m doing is wrong. It’s the kind of fear that says I’ll be judged. Criticized. Picked apart. Etc. The mind gets really creative imagining worst case scenarios.
Incidentally, I face the same fears every day when I get out of my car to go to my day job. Same stuff. But my dad has a saying: “the only thing worse than working is not working.” It’s the type of humor one appreciates when one faces inner demons.
Because what happens when you don’t write? You don’t go to your day job? You don’t take care of business? You don’t create what’s on your heart?
You guessed it: you face the demons anyway.
The demons you fear from without will come at your from within.
You’re going to face them either way.
Which way will you choose?

If you experience the definition of insanity when it comes to the fear of public speaking or performing, it’s time to learn a new way to get better results.
Face your fears, they say, that's how you get over them. What if you have over and over again, and still encounter the same anxiety that limits your life?
The workshop's entire focus is about overcoming fear and adopting a new mindset. There are no presentation tips like Toastmasters or Dale Carnegie courses.
In addition to the 16 hours of hands-on learning and coaching, you will have 2 follow up calls, not to mention the support you will receive from your newfound kindred spirits/group members at any time.
Members over the past 20 years have said their continuous growth and ability to seek new opportunities has led to much success, personally and professionally.
The shift occurs when your viewpoint changes and you have an opportunity to practice new tools in a supportive environment.
Time and time again, many members have said they wished they had taken it sooner. Read about what else they have to say here. Your life will take on a new meaning of freedom, fearlessness, success and confidence.
I'm encouraging you to come and see for yourself how your future life decisions will come from a mindset of choice instead of avoidance.
There are only a few spots left.
Please contact me with questions.
I love this quote I heard on @redefiningwealthshow
Avoidance is not a great tool for mental, physical, relationship or financial health. ✨
If you need to loose weight, you need to food journal. You may not need to count calories, but you do need a picture of what you are consuming. ✨
Need to clear out some debt or pump up your savings account, you have to track what comes in and what goes out.
Writing and tracking these things allow you to cultivate awareness around the reality of your situation. And then you can be mindful of your future choices to move you in the direction of your goals. ✨
Action kills anxiety. So facing your challenge may be scary, but in the end, you will be much happier. ✨
Remember, if your mountain is large, you don’t have to face it alone. Hire a nutrition coach, a personal trainer, join a gym, hire a financial advisor, consciously build you a tribe that will support you. ✨

Someone who needs to hear this: Just do it.
Do not neglect the spiritual gift that is in you, which was given to you when the prophets spoke and the elders laid their hands on you.
Practice these things and devote yourself to them, in order that your progress may be seen by all.
Watch yourself and watch your teaching. Keep on doing these things, because if you do, you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

Let this sink in.... I am so guilty of this. I used to have the mindset(Occasionally Yolanda(my inner self doubter)) comes back.
Its took learning that personal development and self care is a very important part of life and it doesnt matter how you get it... ❤Realizing that you are PERFECTLY IMPERFECT and loving yourself.❤ How can you be here here for others 100% if you dont love or care about?
Hanging out with some of the smartest business minds I have ever met! What a powerful weekend and what an amazing tribe!
Today my husband and I visit a friends farm. Although it was freezing we relished in the immensity of space and the crisp clean air. .
Being in the country is exhilarating. Sometimes I wonder if our crew of five could ever make the jump to the serene lifestyle. But as much as I enjoy the solitude of the farm it also seems unnerving to be unattached. .
Unattached from noise and people and the security of being in close community with others to embrace the quietness.
Then I realized how reoccurring the fear of silence was for me. Growing up with four siblings I grew acquainted with noise. It was comforting to know someone was on the other side of the wall, coming or going with friends, or up late watching television and studying. .
Even now with little ones the day is punctuated with clamor and commotion. As silly as it seems there are times at night, when everyone is settled in, I often grow afraid. As I keep the mom hours I am weary of the silence. So many thoughts to unpack and sort. .
But in stillness—moving past the rehearsed anxieties from the day— I see more clearly. As we drove out to the country the emptier the surroundings the more uncomfortable I felt. Yet a few moments after arriving, walking out into a wide open field, I was met with such peace.
In the silent, calm, open spaces of my life I can clearly see evidence of something greater than me at work. I can connect with God and linger in his presence. I want to stop running from silence and start running to it. In silence I begin to face my fears in order to create room for peace.
This is the number one fear of those who are interested but don't have the guts to pursue freelancing.
So they'd rather stay stuck at a job they don't like, with a boss who abuse them always thinking about what could change but never having the guts to pursue their dream.
Nothing is permanent. What makes you think your 9-5 is secure? If you don't make an effort you won't make it regardless of what job you're in. Won't you rather enjoy a job you like and having full control of how it goes?
"Your losses should create toughness....when they start to create weakness....change your ways" = SOUL

Abhinn's Morning Motivation - Face Your Fears!
Do you face your fears head on 🙌or do you avoid them? 🙅
Most Home Business marketers are scared of facing their fears because they feel they are going to make a mistake. 🙇 Here's the thing...making mistakes is part of life as that's how you grow!
When you face your fears, you getting excited by looking at it as a new challenge which leads to you taking more action and not being afraid! 🙌
Understand that it's OK to be afraid and have fears but don't let it get the better of you! Instead use that as motivation to push through and overcome those fears that you have!
Stop fearing what could go wrong and instead focus on what could go right!
Are you facing your fears or not?

Today we relaxed by the river, kayaked nude and rolled around in the mud. Such a splendid day. Now to watch the moon rise and the sun set. Feel the energy of the full moon, feel the thoughts that arise. Acknowledge and understand them; accept and release. Move past, to what was; move in, to what is.
My new hobby is folding tiny paper gnomes, leaving them in random places, and then irrationally hoping they never, ever, ever, ever, ever find their way back. Bonus fact: fairies, gnomes, elves, pixies, brownies, fey folk, leprechauns, whatever the hell Rumpelstiltskin is, and magically animated puppets and/or dolls are *terrifying*. #gnome #fairies #faceyourfears #fayophobia #gnomophobia
