One of my New Years Intentions was to quit the gym... . . Back in August, I decided to join a gym, for the first time in nearly 3 years. I thought it would be good to get back on the weights and feel motivated by the group atmosphere. By the second week, I could feel the anxiety creep back in. See in uni, I went through about a year’s phase of going to the gym every day for 2-3 hours a day. Physically, I got into the “best” shape of my life. I didn’t even realise at the time, but mentally, I was at my worst. . . So when I decided to go back to the gym after a 3 year break, it was only a matter of time before I started to berate myself if I didn’t wake up at 5 am to get to the gym, if I was late and had to miss a group session, if I didn’t like what I saw in the mirrors lining every single god damn wall. I was pumping my energy levels up with unnecessarily high intensity sessions for someone who already has naturally high energy, and in response to needing to discharge that energy I spiraled last year into uni-levels of drinking. I wasn’t allowing myself to rest, recharge, reflect, restore and discharge energy in productive ways - asana, meditation, constructive conversation, writing. . . I hit a breaking point, and realised that I needed to take myself out of the situation that was causing me so much self-hate, and it was then when I realised where I was at junior year of college. . . On New Years Day this year, I quit my gym here in Sydney - vowing to myself to exercise naturally - running, circuits outside, yoga, hiking, swimming, surfing. And if I miss a day, that was my body’s way of telling me to take a break. It’s still a massive struggle for me, especially as a former competitive swimmer who would practice twice a day. Still a struggle to listen to my body when I’m tired and need a break. . . The funny thing is I don’t work out every day now and I feel the healthiest on a holistic level more than ever with my new outlook - outdoors, in flow, resting down. I prioritise meditation and a good brekkie in the morning over a gruelling work out. It’s a long journey but I know now that health shines from the inside out 💕 . . Pic of my gym this week 😜
~The power of the people~ The power of globalization, to me, isn't about a bunch of governments coming together to decide the fate of humanity behind closed doors. The power of globalization lies in moments when common people come together to achieve great things, either through NGOs or grassroot efforts. It's through these connections, be it your buddy next door, someone halfway around the world and everyone in between, that we can get true progress in the direction we actually desire. It's not about deals behind closed doors or hidden agendas. It's about standing for what you believe in and making a deeper connection with your fellow human beings, no matter where they're from or what their beliefs are -- a deeper destination Hammock pic by @gitlandgarmes #hammocking ! * * * * * #parkranger #outsidelifestyle #departedoutdoors #wildernessculture #getoutside #hiking #adventurelife #explore #exploremore #kcco #chiveon #Curacao #islandlife #caribbean #nature #natureismyplayground #exploreyournation #onlytheoutdoors #everytrailconnects #getoutsideandplay #ilivewhereyouvacation #rei1440project #werehikers #findyourpark #peoplewhohike #rightnowincuracao #charity #hammocktime #volunteering
Sometimes it’s ok if the only thing you did today was wake up. So many people didn’t make it. #TurnMayGrey is something that I’m passionate about because of a beautiful boy named Oliver. He was an amazing light of God’s love and he is missed so terribly much. Many days, I can’t say his name without tears. And then I think of all the others who deal with brain cancer and all the things it steals from them and their families and the tears come again. Today, I woke up. For that, I am so very thankful. If you don’t mind, could you take a moment to post a B&W picture with my hashtag #TurnMayGrey and tag me as well as some friends? I’d love to bombard IG with #braincancer awareness since the month of May is all about this disease. A simple act of kindness to let others know they aren’t alone. Their fight isn’t going unseen. They are strong even when they weep in the shower and they are beautiful because their spirit shines brighter than anything else could.
Ah feel like Peter pan here, I should have dressed in green 😁😁😁 My favorite #standingbalance is #treepose and the better part is on the #tree itself Day 3 #natureasanas Hosted by: @cherryladyyoga @geeoice_yoga @leighyogipilot @tara_huff_ .

My favorite things to do include hanging in nature and hanging with my friends and family. So the fact that this is the first time we have been to @laarboretum blows my mind! So don’t feel guilty if you haven’t been just GO! It’s so beautiful! The kids can run free! It’s only $8 for adults and kids under 5 are free! #notsponsored #notanad . . . . . #lovemykids #friendsforlife #dopeacockshavesex #natureismyplayground #naturelovers #lamoms #lamamas #momsohard #veganmomsofig #bohostyle #vegankidsofig #flowerpower #naturalmama
Running through the fields of “gold” 🏃🏼‍♀️🙌🏻 I remember this from my own childhood when growing up on the countryside, we often ran around on the fields surrounding our farm. It was quite an adventure as you couldn’t see anything from this height. You only had the corridors made by corn or rapeseed to navigate in. . . . . #lilleida #spring #fieldsofgold #fieldsofflowers #adventure #natureaddict #natureismyplayground #getoutside #utpåturaldrigsur #utno #uteliv #familylife #dadlife #parenting #fatherhood #parenting #dadwithdaughters #kidslife #nordicdad #naturalchildhood #picoftheday #childhoodmemory #udeliv #familieliv #danmark #spring #photography #sunnydays #miniature
Kiedy nadchodzi ten długo wyczekany dzień 🍒🍒🍒 Ten dzień co to go zabrakło w zeszłym roku, bo mrozy, pszczoły czy inne kataklizmy. Ten dzień kiedy są już słodkie, jest ich pełno. Kiedy wiesz że pod Twym troskliwym okiem, pełnym tęsknych spojrzeń wywołanych opowieściami sąsiadów, wyrosły takie jak trzeba. Wyrosły jeszcze lepsze, najlepsze, bo wreszcie są i to smakuje najlepiej 🌿🍒❤🍃 . . . #szczecin #wiosna #maj #ogrod #szalenstwo #szczescie #czereśnie #owocowelove #drzewo #drzewożycia #zielonomi #taksmakujeszczescie #slowlife #smallpleasures #spring #cherry #cherrycherrylady #jestpieknie #mojswiat #mójogród #maleszczescia #polskajestpiekna #goodvibesonly #greenworld #wildlife #natureismytherapy #natureismyplayground
Downward facing Frida for day 2 #natureasanas Can't do anything fancy here as the bench was not really linear 🤣 Hosted by: @cherryladyyoga @geeoice_yoga @leighyogipilot @tara_huff_ .

Blooming. Growing. Living. I hope you take today, and all the ones you’re given after, and live your life the best way you know how. #TurnMayGrey #ForOllie and all who are dealing with #BrainCancer in some fashion. You’re not alone. Let’s all post a B&W picture and use the hashtag so brain cancer awareness can get some time in the sun. Not all cancer is pink ribbons.
The final day of #TwistedYoginis is half lord of the fishes. I’m thankful. I did way too much yesterday, fell, and now my right wrist is all messed up. 😒 Thank you for a fun mini challenge full of twists and turns. It’s been a good time and now I’m all wrung out and ready to go! Happy Monday y’all!

What do you do to stay active on vacation? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Give me the ocean as a backdrop and I’ll do burpees all day. 🏝☀️😄 #natureismyplayground #burpees #fitmom #noexcuses
~Excerpt of quentessentially Curaçao landscapes~ A throwback to simpler times. Clean horizons and close knit communities. Plains blanketed with grass and dotted with cacti.

Inspired by @leighyogipilot today and her cool pose. If I’m honest, I’m always inspired by her. Who is someone that inspires you? Why? Do they know they inspire you? Maybe you should tell them.
Hi. I’m Aleigh (pronounce it like Alley) and I hope you help me #TurnMayGrey and post a B&W picture of anything you want. Tag it with my hashtag #TurnMayGrey as well as tag me and a few friends that you think wouldn’t mind helping to spread love, support and awareness for all those that have had their lives touched by #BrainCancer and it’s shitty ways. #ForOllie
Imaginations in full swing! #actionshot #boys #brothers #natureismyplayground
#Traditions ❤️👧🏼 My grandfather made willow whistles for me when I was a kid and I loved it. I was always amazed of the things he could do (he was a bit of a Macgyver and so much fun!).A little while back I asked my stepdad if he knew how to make one cause I couldn’t remember, and yes he did! Today we made whistles, annoyed mom and got Embla howling 😂😂 But boy, did we have fun! #neverstopplaying #willowwhistle #kidatheart #natureismyplayground #seljefløyte
I found this piece of wood on my last hike up Mt. Lemmon. It looks like drift wood and seemed so out of place just laying there all by itself. I knew it had to come home with me. It sits in the window of my little yoga space. I’m pretty sure you would have taken one look and made it a spaceship or a race car. So here I am. Again. Working to #TurnMayGrey #ForOllie and all those that have had their lives touched by brain cancer. Wanna help spread awareness and show some love? Just post a picture in B & W and use my hashtag #TurnMayGrey tag me and a few friends that you think would like to help spread the word. Viola!
Oh arm balances. How I love to hate to love thee. Today in #SelfRuleYoga we get to chose a favorite arm balance. Well, #lolasana isn’t necessarily a favorite but it is one I TRY to work on. I’m weak. But I’m getting there. I do enjoy a good EPK or Bakasana. Maybe even toss in grasshopper and pincha. But really....this one is my kryptonite.

Why not pose like a superhero? I am one. Days 3&4 of #twistedyoginis gives us lunge and triangle I am sad to report that in my superhero duties of today, Yoga was not one of them. I had a play to watch, a feast to help with, a musical concert to enjoy, a salon visit for a special soccer player, very expensive tires to be put on a very expensive truck 🙄 and of course dinner and snuggles. In all of that, I smiled pretty, gave compliments where due and made others giggle. THAT (on top of being Super Mom) is why I call myself a #superhero I hope at least once a day, you can tell yourself the same.
