I may CRAZILY ENOUGH be under stage weight since #usas
and the start of my reverse diet over 2 weeks ago (and eating a lot more coupled with weekly cheats but that’ll be described further in another post) but I don’t walk around with shredded abs all the time.
I drink a lot of water and am currently increasing carbs (beautifully in the 200g carb club now 🤘🏽) which naturally leads to bloating throughout the day. Yeah, I wake up with a 6 pack but once I drink or eat ANYTHING, it goes away.
This is NORMAL. And I’m here to be as transparent as possible and show that I am not a genetic anomaly. Instagram is used as a highlight reel and I’m guilty of it. Of course, you’re always gonna wanna post your best photos under the best lighting in the best clothes but that’s not reality.
So many people have feelings of inadequacy because they are comparing themselves to what they see on social media. News flash: it ain’t always true.
Those IG models that are seemingly lean af all year round? I can guarantee most of those photos are taken during a small window of time during the year but posted all year long to make it seem that way (aka throwbacks but without saying it’s a throwback) Either that or they are actually staying that lean and really hate their life because they can never go out, enjoy themselves with friends, eat a meal, or leave the gym without spending 3 hours on the stairmaster.
TLDR: don’t believe everything you see on Instagram. And refrain from playing the comparison game as much as possible because comparison is the thief of joy.
Some of you may have seen on my stories that I have been in Canada recently. I haven’t properly announced that I have actually decided to move back here. 🇨🇦
After exactly 6 years abroad I have decided to move home for a bit. It wasn’t an easy decision but it felt like the right decision. I’ve been here a little over a week and it’s been a whirlwind. I definitely have not settled. It’s been mostly positive but in all honesty today is the first day it’s really hit me that my life is going to be completely different to what I’ve become so accustomed to. Relationships, even with family have changed so much over the course of 6 years. I’m not the same person I was when I left. I am trying to find a balance and navigate the different dynamics that I’m just simply not used to anymore. I am trusting that wonderful things will unfold and I do truly believe I’m meant to be here. I’m meant to reconnect with my family and my roots. This next chapter is both scary and exciting for me. I don’t know if I’ll be here for a long time or a short time but I’m going to take my time and see what happens. 🌾

➡️Dating 101 ⬅️ Ahhh, the infamous topic of men committing or lack there of. .
Simply put, men are not that complex when it comes to women. They are VERY clear on what capacity they want you to fill in their life (if any). If a man is truly interested there is NOTHING that will keep him from pursuing you and committing. Not his finances, not your education level, not your tax bracket, not your relationship status (some men think, if the man you are dating hasn't proposed or married you, you are still on the market 🤣) etc. Do not believe me, ask the men in your life who are in committed relationships. They will tell you the same. Now if a man is not interested, he has MANY excuses. .

Soulagée d'être émancipée de l'environnent éclectique de la belle famille et de me retrouver avec ces deux là, que nous trois pour le restant de ce périple en France yeeepiii!!! Alors si avant notre départ, nous n'étions pas certains de la nature de notre mission pour notre 2e aventure en France cet été, nous sommes désormais plus lucides. Mission accomplie? On verra, mais même si ces temps on été troublants, remontant blessures non guéries du passé... Un shift à été initié. Une résistance contre le déni, les mensonges, les manipulations, la honte. Le processus de guérison progresse.
Nous sommes tous victimes et agresseurs, alors tous pardonnables, en temps et lieux. #secretsdefamille #resistance #noncompliant #familysecrets #truthseeker #lightwarrior #redpill #matrix #honesty #healing #transcend #trauma #traumahealing #pastwounds #woundedwarriors #woundedhealer #honoponopono #healingprocess #nomorelied #nomoredenial #nomoremanipulation #responsibility
I have to be honest. My heart was heavy today. Tears streaked my cheeks and my heart was overwhelmed. I prayed and told God that I needed some time to just be human and cry. I wanted a Word of encouragement from Him though. A few moments later this scripture calmed my spirit and helped me through this day. John 16:33,... “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
We are human and it's okay to act as such. However, we need to balance our grief with hope. Trusting God through our tears and fears brings peace to our stormy days.

I don't want to be this addicted to social media.
At times I'm logging on for no reason and that is wack for me.
You guys are awesome though. Sometines you need to unplug for a few days. 💟💟💟📚🤩🤩🤩📚🧠🧠🕛🕛⏳⏳⏳
I know what it’s like to struggle.
I know what it’s like to be ashamed of your body.
I know what it’s like to binge on thousands of calories in one sitting and then vomit the lot up.
I know what it’s like to starve myself and go for days at a time consuming only apples and sparkling water.
I know what it’s like to wear 3 layers of clothing at the gym to try and disguise the fact I’m overweight.
I know what it’s like to run out of a fitness class in tears because I’m struggling to breathe as I’m so unfit.
I know what it’s like to not feel good enough.
But I also know what it’s like to remember that life is a gift, that every day is precious and a chance for a fresh start.
I know what it’s like to feel full of healthy, nutritious food instead of tubs of ice cream and packets of biscuits.
I know what it’s like to see a workout through to the end, even if I feel like giving up numerous times.
I know what it’s like to see progress in what my body can do - lift a little heavier, hold a little longer, jump a little higher.
I know what it’s like, bit by bit, to start believing in myself.
I know what it’s like to be consistent with my diet and training rather than a constant cycle of all or nothing.
I know what it’s like to be on a journey. I know what it’s like to hate where you’ve come from. But I truly know what it’s like to love where you are and where you’re going. And I promise you can too ❤️ #transformationtuesday #edrecovery #weightlossjourney #yesyoucan #wildcatfitnessuk #selflove #bodytransformation #inspiration #motivation #londonblogger #girlswhotrain #londonpersonaltrainer #honesty
What are you going to do???
This is me... I'm a mum, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a colleague, a make up artist and a Damn hard worker.
I wear my heart on my sleeve and I'm honest.
I give my all to every one and everything that I do. Some days I would love to curl up and hide away but I don't I face what the day gives me with a strong smile and the support of my family and friends x

There's 20 years between these 2 photos.
At 18 I was very poorly (not Long after this photo I had to have my hair cut very short as it was dead due to the abuse I had put my body under)
A size 6 at best (back then they didn't do smaller sizes) 🙈 I was 6 stone and my periods had stopped. I was told I may never be able to have children and would more than likely suffer with osteoporosis as a result of what I had done to my body.
Even though I knew this I didn't stop... Mentally I just wasn't strong enough 😪
Today I am just under 9 Stone (not that it actually matters at all), I've had 2 children and my bone mass is good for my weight and age. 👌🏻 I am in the best Shape of my life both physically and mentally and proof that a life time of abuse doesn't have to mean you can't be healthy in the end. 🙌🏻 I chose to become healthy 4 and a half years ago when herbalife found me🙏🏻 Yes it may sound dramatic, I know 🙄🤦🏻 But it really did.
It taught me how to love food and use it to fuel my body. Not to see food as the enemy.
Now a lot of people won't get that, but some will.
So for anyone who has ever struggled. It can be overcome 🙌🏻💚 #transformationtuesday #healthy #anarecovery #eatingdisorders #honesty #truth #inspiretoinspire #helpothers #eatingdisorderawareness #herbalifenutrition
If it hurts you stop doing it. Whether it’s overeating, a bad relationship, a bad job let it go and move on . You always have a choice - just weigh up the consequences and wether or not you want to take them. Yes I can only make the best decision on the information and experience you have at the time. Likewise if you are struggling with depression or anxiety don’t struggle alone, together with the support of others will make you stronger, be honest and be vulnerable. Pretending to be strong can be harmful. So be honest with yourself and acknowledge your feelings, acknowledge if you are scared or depressed “Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom”. Thomas Jefferson

Living out loud is wonderful, speaking and sharing your truths is delightful, but for those times when you simply have to get it out of your head anonymously? That's where Glorious Relief 2.0 comes in.
Why don’t we say what we really think?
If you’re sat there squirming as you try to rustle up the words that explain why, over a decade later, there are still things we won’t say out loud, breathe. It’s cool. I’m not here today looking for answers.
Today I’m pulling back the curtain on my attempt at a solution. Because we both know that, as much as we might love to be able to, there’s just some stuff that we can’t put our names to.
But. What if no one knew it was you?
How cool would it be to finally be able to say some of that stuff out loud? That's where Glorious Relief 2.0 comes in. Here's how to find out more and speak your truth (without anyone ever knowing it was you!) GloriousRelief.com

Sort of sappy-not really-just honest post about social media or just being with couples for brief periods.
I’ve always gotten mixed responses to my relationship.. about how we look together, or their opinion of mine or Wesleys attractiveness, or how we are together, or being interracial.
But I’m really lucky, though he’s luckier 😉 I’m not one to put much out there about my relationship, because it’s no ones business BUT I like to be real.
To people who stop us and say we are perfect, to people message me and say we are “goals”, to people to say they WISH they had a relationship like ours... it’s not perfect. It’s not sunshine and rainbows. Wesley doesn’t not ever mess up, or when he does he doesn’t always have a sweet response (though he’s not mean or rude to me). He’s not romantic.. his idea of planning a date is saying let’s hang out then have a couple options.. not having looked up any to see if they’re even open or where they are. One was TWO hours away once- we did not go.
I’m not “different than other girls”. I’m not whatever you think I am. I’m MOODY, it’s like a switch. I’m not super sweet always and tell you sweet things all the time. I do sometimes, but mostly I say it how it is. Some days my mental illness eats me alive and I’m not me at all. I’m sassy, I’m petty. Not to say I’m not a great person. I’m okay, I think. 💁🏽♀️ .
Anyways my point is this idea of what a “perfect” relationship is isn’t that realistic (usually). Our relationship is WORK. It’s time and caring and commitment. It’s compromise, it’s time apart, it’s listening, it’s understanding, and it’s wanting it to work. Wesley does not belittle me, does not tell me terrible things about anything I’ve ever said or think, had never pressured me to do anything I don’t want (it was a full year if not more before we really kissed), supports me, almost always there for me, and is someone I can trust fully. So little things don’t detour us from knowing in the big picture, in the end we want to be together.
Every relationship different, but my point is don’t pine after another relationship. Just work on yours and it can become something great.
Ok, I'm gonna get really real with y'all. Like, vulnerable-I'm-a-hot-mess-express real. 🚂
This right here gives me anxiety. However, that hasn't stopped it from sitting there for...Oh let's just say I found Harper's hospital paperwork in there. 🙈
I hate clutter, but it has the tendency to happen. Every time I looked at this mess it overwhelmed me. I knew I needed to make the time to clean and organize it, but it was just...overwhelming! (Please, tell me I'm not alone here! 😭) This past week I intentionally made the decision to be intentional about decluttering our house. Notice I'm being very intentional with the word intentional because sometimes when you know you need to do something but really don't want to, you have to be INTENTIONAL!
But I digress... I made the decision to start decluttering different parts of our home because a cluttered space equals a cluttered mind and I could totally feel it! I function so much better in an organized space, but the problem is I'm not always an organized person. That's why (I'm gonna say it again) I have to be intentional.
And it's funny that I felt so overwhelmed by that pile of papers because it really didn't take much time before I had finished it. And then I felt the momentum to move on to different areas that had been begging for my attention.
I've come to a point in my life where I want to bring in all the positive energy and push out all the negative energy. And this right here was a big 'ol heap of negative, so it had to go!
Here's to the not so organized people getting a bit more organized! 🥂
