REVAMPED & (almost) READY TO GO ▢️ If you've been following me for a little while, you might remember one of my recent posts about dealing with anxiety & depression. 2018 has been a RIDE people & as the year winds down, I can only & choose to only, look back at this year with gratitude. This year broke me down, but it also built me up. It made me question who I am & realize who I want to be. . . . 🌸 I AM ANIA. I crave learning, I embrace growth, I accept change, I seek experience. It's by no means easy, but it's incredibly rewarding. It was after my life changing expedition to South America last year, that I came back as this different, altered person. This ANIA, this girl who doesn't hide her wild soul, vibrant mind & loyal heart...I like her. I like her a lot. . . . 🌱 I have passion for my life on this beautiful planet that cannot always be put into words. There's really only so much I can say, & so more often than not, I really just want to SHOW you. & that's exactly what I intend to do. It's why I'm creating a brand new YouTube channel, that shows you exactly who this girl is. . . . 🎬 I am SUPER happy with my brand new editing space & equipment. I spent the whole morning organizing & planning a load of new stuff for you guys. SO, if you are just as (almost) ready for this launch as me, then come join me on YouTube Dec 1st for some new vibes & good vibes only. The link will be up shortly πŸ’› . . . #mentalhealth #mindset #positivity #positive #goodvibesonly #space #interiordesign #bedro #office #gratitude #desktop #computer #hp #youtube #youtuber #content #contentcreator #new #video #editing #edits #edit #pc #work #toronto #workspace #cactus #room #design
ALL THE VIBES IN THIS OOTD πŸ’‹ . . . MMM GIRL. Really feeling this look right now. Kinda felt nice to put on something other than my workout gear today. Yes, I obviously still went to the gym & got in a quick leg session, BUT lately, I'm not letting the gym define my entire day. Working out is definitely a highlight, but only a tiny part of my life that I share with the other million things I love doing. Ya'll know I'm the type of girl who'll analyze galaxies, laugh contagiously and burn every vegan cookie recipe I ever try (& yes, still laugh). & TBH recently, that's exactly what I've been letting myself do more of...live that kind of balance, devote my time to other things & other people, smiling, shining & perfectly realigning. . . . #ootd #smile #look #boots #fall #fashion #style #fallfashion #november #2018 #strong #mentalhealth #mentality #vibe #alignment #balance #hair #cute #choker #scarf #leggings #jacket #workout #fitness #activewear

CπŸŒ•Ze. Lighting up my life (& bedroom) with these pretty string lights this month, has been such a pretty decor addition. Even my plants (Felix on the right and George II on the left), have grown taller from the extra energy. Making my room such a cozy corner has really given me a space to seriously melt away stress. Walking into a room burning pumpkin spice & warm vanilla scents...everything colour coordinated...organized in its proper place...ahh, my kind of lifeSTYLE. . . . #interiordecorating #room #bedroom #ikea #walmart #candles #pumpkinspice #vanilla #decorating #redecorate #bedroomdecor #mirror #lights #fallstyle #style #lifestyle #pretty #shiny #jewellerybox #furniture #upgrade #update #new #look
MIDNIGHT THOUGHTS πŸŒ™ Let's walk & talk. I love doing that & right now...I just need you to listen. - Tonight I want to say thank you out loud, to the Universe, for letting me be here. You let a little load of atoms combine from dust into a body that can move, a mind that can think, and a soul that can feel. You let me laugh at things that aren't even supposed to be funny, yet I find absolutely hilarious. You give me your energy to wake up every morning and breathe...until the moment we move back to the milky way. - Never have I been so passionate & grateful for my life as I am now. I don't know why such a strong change occurred within me, but I trust the shift in my life that it created. Change is not a simple process & personally, I don't always adapt well...but no matter how low my thoughts can be sometimes, I've made myself a rule to radiate higher than the darkness that often tries to consume me. We are vibrant beings. We came from the stars. Look up from your phone for a second. Look at yourself. Look at where you are in this exact moment & just say thank you. Because isn't this a miracle?...all of us just standing here on a floating rock with no idea if 'tomorrow' will ever come, or why 'yesterday' has gone away. So my beautiful Universe, thank you. . . . #mindfulness #energy #science #earth #planet #stars #space #galaxy #milkyway #atom #planetearth #stars #humans #life #mind #mindful #outerspace #venusretrograde #retrograde #spirit #spiritual #soul #midnight

GYMSHARK 🦈 OMGOODNESS... today was a 'beautiful day to be alive' (@whitneyysimmons ) , because I had a chance to meet some of the most inspiring humans that I so gratefully can say, have literally saved my life by helping me fall in love with fitness. @maryanadvorska , @stevecook you are honestly the sweetest people & I am still in shock that I had the chance to meet you in person! @nikkiblackketter , @robingallantt & @whitneyysimmons , even though I didnt get a chance to see you after an 8 hour wait, I could still feel your energy from just a few meters away. I watch all of your YouTube videos & cannot thank all of you @gymshark enough, for just being so inspiring & beautiful. πŸ’› . . . #gymshark #gym #train #life #trainer #gymrat #liftthecity #lift #lifting #liftheavy #team #famous #people #photo #maryanadvorska #stevecook #fitness #fit #lifestyle #omg #beavisionary
FOCUSING ON STRENGTH & STRENGTHENING MY FOCUS πŸ’› πŸ‘ Time for a little chit chat I guess. Kinda feeling like just giving you all an update..so ima do it. Today was the first time I stepped into the gym in 2 weeks after giving my body a complete rest from all previous training. The goal for my comeback is to rev up my fitness game completely...lifting heavy, running fast & squatting low. Fitness & music are honestly the only things that genuinely save me every day. Looking forward to a winter of weights, runs & progress. . . . #gymshark #gym #flex #fit #girl #fitness #workout #abs #thesix #lift #lifting #toronto #fitgirls #liftheavy #motivate #inspire #train #training #weights #gymlife #trainer #sports #transformation #instagood #physicalhealth #progressnotperfection #weliftthecity #beavisionary
🌲RIGHT WHERE I BELONG πŸƒ After a few weeks of feeling a little unlike myself, today I let my thoughts and soul go free to wander through a forest (something this little nature girl desperately needed). The stillness of the trees, only moving in unison with the wind, letting pockets of sunshine peak through the coloured canopies, honestly just recharged me...and the way all the trees lined up at my attention, to serve me beautiful views and protect me from the outer world, brought my mind such calmness. For the first time in a long time, I had a chance to just breathe & just be. ☁️ Grateful. . . . #forest #hiking #canada #ontario #fall #2018 #hike #backpacking #nature #walk #walking #boots #style #timberland #forever21 #wind #calm #breeze #mind #innerpeace #balance #mindset
YOU SHOULD READ THIS. I don't know where to start. I guess I'll simply begin with the truth. Most of you know how open I am on social media and this post is nothing less of that. I've decided to take a break. I've decided to give myself a chance to restart & reinvent who I am. I've decided to spend the next 2 months taking care of me and slowing EVERYTHING down. I've spent the last year and a half battling the worst depression and anxiety of my life & I've realized, it's not something I can just outrun at the gym. It's a part of me that I need to learn to live with. I know this will be a healthy challenge & change of pace for me. Time to put my life through a little renovation. πŸ“ŒSo in case you're wondering about logistics: πŸ—“I'm actually starting a brand new YouTube channel. The new link will be up shortly. The launch date is December 1st. πŸ“±I'll be moderately active on Insta just to stay in touch, but you won't be seeing as much of me for a little while. ❄ December has always been my favourite month. So I'll be back by then. Just remember, this isn't goodbye... simply see you later. . . . #mentality #mental #health #mentalhealth #social #media #socialmedia #cleanse #detox #youtube #break #rest #new #restart #fresh #start #end #comeback #project
O H H O N E Y 🍯 🍌 Starting off my Sunday a little sweeter today by whipping up a batch of chocolate paleo protein pancakes. Haven't made these guys in a long time, but I decided that today was the day to play around in the kitchen and finally perfect this recipe. M I X: 🍌 1/3 of a banana πŸ₯š 1 egg 🍡 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (I use @genuinehealth ) πŸ₯„ 1/2 a tsp of baking powder and soda, a dash of almond milk, and a drop of 2 of rum or lemon extract F L I P: on low heat with coconut oil for about 2 minutes each side πŸ‹ My grandpa is a beekeeper so honey holds a special place in my heart. Yesterday I picked up a new golden wildflower honey at a Farmer's Market and honestly, it was a solid addition to my breakfast. Light in flavour, smooth & sweet. 🌱 On another note, this month I'm back on Intermittent Fasting after several months of bouncing around my health goals. My fasting hours range between 15 and 22 and I like to keep it flexible. My aim is to keep this up through the Fall and break my fasts with healthy, balanced breakfasts like this one.

O M G πŸ’š Y O U πŸ’› G U Y S πŸ’™ 2018 has been one heck of a year of accomplishment for me and I gotta say, I'm proud of me. No matter how slow I go, when I have a goal, I get to it. Finally, after so many months of studying, practising and sort of delaying (because life got hectic), I've become a Certified Personal Trainer through @canfitpro . Fitness has changed my life, saved me in so many ways, and continues to be one of the best things I ever started investing my time into. So many failures, injuries and successes along the way have only made me more resilient & passionate about this whole health & fitness thing. The best part is that it's something I'm dedicating my life to, so I can promise ya'll I'll still be doing my ab circuits and booty building til I'm 90 🍎 . . . #pts #pt #personaltraining #personaltrainer #train #trainwithme #getfitwithme #fitness #fit #health #canfitpro #canada #toronto #certified #trainer #booty #bodybuilding #functionalfitness #workout #workoutwithme #workouts #gym #gymlife #obsessed #excited #news

W E D N E S D A Y ❄ N I G H T πŸŒ™ Ever have those evenings where you just sit alone, and think about life, everything that's happened to you, everything you want so badly, questioning motives, imagining experiences, wondering what if...how...why...when...? 🌟I had one of those nights tonight. As I sat under the stars on my front porch looking up into the Universe, I let myself think; and while that was occurring, I reminded myself just how much of a GOAL-getter I am, how much I want to accomplish in my life, but also how much I shy away from things because sometimes I don't feel G O O D E N O U G H. ❗ This year has been a challenge. It's pushed me around into unknown territory on unsolid ground with unfamiliar faces. I don't like change...but this year has taught me just how necessary it is, in order to become better & to become good enough. So this is my invitation to the Universe: Bring what you got, I can handle it. Whether it's my health & fitness game, academics, YouTube, friends, relationships, work, my style... it's time to step out of my comfort zone. So for what's left of 2018, let the rest be the best.

G O O D πŸŒ™ M O R N I N G πŸ“š Happy Thursday Instagram! Today is the last official day of my summer vacation before the little nerd inside of me heads back to school. 🌸 I'm feeling really positive about my health & fitness game lately. I've fallen off the bandwagon of my fab fit lifestyle in the last few weeks but I've simply accepted that's life. I'm working really hard to get back on Intermittent Fasting and excercising consistently. It's a struggle sometimes when I realize how much weaker I've gotten or how many lbs I've put on again, but this is MY journey and I accept it and move forwards. Sometimes however, it can be an even bigger struggle when people judge and comment, or send me really negative vibes...especially when they don't know all the details. πŸ“· Putting myself out there like this, means that I'm openly sharing my life with other strongly opinionated people and I understand that not everyone is going to have the same outlook and approach to life as me. My only aim through Insta is to uplift & inspire others. My hope is that the people out there who feel a need to put other people down, simply stop & think about what they're doing before they do it. 🐸 I've come to a point in my life where I'm so OK just being me, that no one else's opinion or word has power over mine. If someone doesn't like me, that's totally fine. We all vibe at different frequencies, we all express different energy. Learn to create your own good vibes and you'll start radiating positivity without even knowing it. Stop searching for the love that already surrounds you & smile, happiness looks gorgeous on you. . . . #mentality #mindset #positive #support #lifestyle #system #hate #love #pride #happy #project #lifestyle #heathy #health #life #update #new #post #instagood #morning #selfie #radiate #comment #like #socialmedia #social #world
