Seeing these adorable creatures 🐄 up close I can’t help but consider a less meat/ animal product type of diet 🥩. Come on, how cute is this little guy😭😭😭?!?! Problem is, I LOVE eating keto🍳🥗. I was hesitant to go low carb in the first place because of my history with eating disorders. Eliminating any one food group or thing from your diet as an #eatingdisorderwarrior is generally frowned upon☹️. But the reason I jumped on board was how it made me feel🤩🧚🏼‍♂️- when my body is using fat instead of glucose for fuel It clears out my brain fog🧠 and gives me so much energy💪🏼. It even allowed me to get off of a prescription medication, adderal💊, which I’d been taking for years! I’m really looking forward to going back to that #ketolife after we have nugget number 2🤰🏻! Right now I’m eating #allthecarbs 🥞🍦🍩🍉. All that being said, again with the adorable creature argument🤷🏼‍♀️. What diet/ lifestyle makes you feel best and what is sustainable and healthy for your lifestyle? Everyone is different and I’m looking forward to hearing what works for you and your family!

Rehearsing for "Invisible Recoveries", our training focused on the mental and emotional recovery that often coincides with physical recovery, yet often gets forgotten. There's always so much more in a person than what meets the eye. #internalstruggle #publicface #MentalHealthInMotion #Dancestories #strokeawareness #mentalhealthawareness #continuingeducation #innerhealing #bettertogether

Never Underestimate the Healing Power of a Bath! I am sooo not the bath type. I like showers. But last night for the first time in probably years, I took a bath. I filled the tub. Added bath bombs. Added my charcoal epsom salt. Put on a face mask. And listened to YouTube. My song choices went from ‘I literally hate everyone and hope there’s a plague to wipe them all out’ to Disney songs sung by black people...including ‘eye to eye’ from A Goofy Movie by Tevin Campbell. I had to have been in there for an hour putting on a concert, luxuriating, exfoliating...enjoying my salt crystals and candles in the dark. And when I finally got out, my mood was so much better I allowed my man to get some punani... at which time made me wonder why when I told him choke me while I came, he was nice and gentle...but when he started hitting it from the back and choked me when HE came, it was to the point where I almost passed out like I was in a sleeper hold. But mama ain’t raise no bitch so I thugged it out. ....anyway I’m rambling. Just take a bath some time soon ✨🧘‍♀️💛 #tranquility #tranquilidade #spa #bath #crystals #flowers #sauna #amazing #igers #instagrammsds #photography #photographer #photoshoot #beauty #beautiful #goodvibes #goodenergy #namaste #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #wellness #selfcare #understanding #internal #internalstruggle #like #instagood #picoftheday
Sometimes as a woman it’s easy to get up in our own heads and struggle with confidence. I know recently I’ve asked myself stupid questions like - why am I not as pretty as her, why is her hair nicer than mine, why has she got a nice smile and mines all teeth/gums, the thought of being in front of a camera has been daunting. But when I stop and think about it I know I’m being stupid as everybody is beautiful in their own ways & nobody should be in any competition with anybody else apart from bettering themselves 😊 so next time you feel like a absolute mess, remember you are beautiful just the way you are, embrace & love the parts of you that you don’t like as they will be there forever! #selfie #selfiesaturday #selfconfidence #selfconscious #weareallhuman #youvsyou #selfconfidenceiskey #strength #embraceyourface #embraceyourself #internalstruggle #insecurities #flaws #imperfections

When you thought a nap would change your shit mood...but all it did was further tangle your hair ..and the universe still didn’t fold the clothes. Or feed your kid. So now you’re in a shit mood AND you have to be responsible.

#130618 - coping - so my mental health hasn’t been great. i never wanted to talk about this so soon but honestly my well-being counts on me being open & even now i don’t intend to be entirely specific about what i’m dealing with. because as much as i want to share my experience & help people who are going through the same thing i’m still not “out of it” yet. i still get those thoughts now & again & it’s like this shadowy force at the back of my mind just waiting to leap out & suffocate me. just yesterday i was standing at the window & soaking in the sea breeze at midnight & watching the estate, watching one or two people coming home late or the dozens of lights still on in people’s homes & when i looked down the thoughts kind of hit me, not full force but hard enough that i was rather shocked, but not quite surprised either. i was genuinely upset with stuff that’s been happening in my life, i still am, & those thoughts took that moment to make themselves known. it was easier to force them away but i momentarily wanted to give in & that still terrifies a large part of me. the small portion that wants to give in is my weakness & it’s so easily triggered??? i hate that i’m like this. people let me down all the time & i somehow find the energy to be bothered about it, while i let myself down everyday & i can’t even be bothered to think more about it. in essence, i’ve just been dealing with a lot & i’ve been struggling to stay positive through everything. people haven’t been making things better & honestly i just want to curl up into a ball all alone & disappear from this world. it’s hard to cope everyday & the thing is, because we don’t know how long we’ll be alive for, i won’t know how many more days i’ll have to deal with this. i just want some calm right now & someone to tell me things aren’t always like this, people aren’t what they seem, stop expecting people to be better when they will never change because humans are habitual creatures, because i can’t tell myself these things, can’t force myself to believe them when i want to see the good in others but not the good in myself.
Spending the day filming content. I’d much rather be behind the camera in the shadows but at the same time, I feel I have stories to share. The internal struggle is real.
When you have extreme hay fever but just can't help yourself 🌺🌸💐 #internalstruggle #polleniskillingme
You never truly know what someone might be going through. You also never know how just a smile or “hey, great to see you”will impact someone. #benice #internalstruggle #bekind #bekindalways
Ok... I might take heat for this. Suicide is tragic, and it has a much wider effect of loss than the loss of one life. I absolutely agree that we should check on our friends and offer support. Just keep in mind that even people with the greatest support groups still experience suffering that almost no one knows about because they don’t want to burden others with the pain they carry. Even with therapy, medication, support groups, and a support system, some people will still attempt or complete suicide to stop feeling what they feel. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try to help, and I’m absolutely not saying that it’s hopeless or that we shouldn’t care. I’m saying it’s deeper than just being there. A person has to have reasons to want to stay alive and hope for the future to be different. You may not be able to change that, but it doesn’t mean you failed them. With any loss, especially death, we often look to see what could have been different on our end, but it’s not always about us. It’s similar to how ending substance abuse requires internal reasons, not external. Check on your friends, reach out, offer help resources. Mourn the loss in your way because your experience is also valid. Sadly, sometimes you just won’t know what’s happening or be able to stop it. That’s not meant to be harsh, it’s an unfortunate reality. #mindfullyblack #suicideprevention #mentalillness #suffering #silentlyscreaming #support #help #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #blackhealth #blackmentalhealth #blackissues #minoritymentalhealth #minority #loss #grief #internalstruggle
I know posting pics of avocado toast is basic af, but my breakfast was really pretty this morning. #internalstruggle
Stay true to yourself and don’t allow your inner peace to become conflicted due to anyone or anything ~ It’s not worth it #peaceofmind #internalstruggle #stay strong #itsnotworthit #youareworthmore
#beerandashot4tony maybe it’s the cynic in me... or the realist #clichèstatment , but I am not angry . For the very first time in my cooking career, the two halves of my professional life collided! #mentalhealth and #culinaryarts . Maybe that’s why processing this is less confusing. I’m grateful that I am able to balance emotion and life, or at least enough to get by. This doesn’t mean I have the secret to eternal happiness... this means I have a better understanding , and can better accept and process.... this. #thestruggleisrealisbiggerthanahashtag #celebratewewill #noreservations #internalstruggle #notforyouanditounderstand #maybebetteristhewrongword
Not all struggle is visible or talked about. Try to be as gentle and kind as you can. Just be a good person, it’s not that hard. #mentalhealthawareness #benice #kindness #hereforyou
As #GPMC joins the nation in mourning the #loss of @katespadeny and @anthonybourdain , we are reminded that #suicide has no face. It can occur in any #culture and affect any #community . As #professionals , many may not see the #internalstruggle because we put on our best #facade , but we know the #pain is very real. The good news is that you are not alone and there is help. Please reach out to someone. #lgbt #lgbtq #gay #pride #blackgay #blackexcellence #youngprofessionals #history #remember #neverforget #gaylove
There are no words that any of us can give or say to diminish the sorrow that will be felt by the loss of this man. He inspired so many to travel, opened the world to those that have never left their hometowns, and made the rest of the world seem “doable”. I grew up watching him, and he was an inspiration to just get out there and live. Hopefully his demons are done with him now.

Man this sad. One of my favorite "chefs", story teller, and writer. You never know what someone is going through internally. RIP #anthonybourdain #sadtoseeyougo #mentalhealthawareness #internalstruggle #semicolonproject
Another day, another person lost too soon. Reach out if you’ve got someone you’re worried about, support and be there when they are ready. The storms will pass, but the war remains. Depression is not a response to a bad day or an argument with a friend, your favourite show not recording, or hitting all the red lights on the drive home. It doesn’t always leave visible wounds and scars. Recognizing that it can be easier to talk to a stranger as well, reach out to me if you need a shoulder or an ear!! #anthonybourdain #katespade #RIP #mentalillness #thistooshallpass #stillirise #wordstoliveby #mentalillness #reachout #support #ask #friendship #depression #strongertogether #strengthandcourage #prevention #erasethestigma #notallbattlesarevisible #soldieron #newday #ldnont #meltingpot #persistence #mayaangelou #battlescars #internalstruggle #18002738255 #dontgiveup #usesocialmediaforgood #mentalhealthmatters #bellletstalk

Photo Cred @vince.stitt thank you for what I believe to be one of the most amazing shots ever captured of me. Your leadership and direction has a remarkable way of making someone feel the most comfortable in front of a camera.

♠️ Sadness for the passing of #katespade 😔. So much love for my very first brown, nylon backpack in high school, and a woman that loved color and witty phrases as much as I do ♠️ 👜 🌈 Instead of people saying she was selfish, maybe more people could try, for just a second, to understand that mental illness is a disease. All the luxuries in the world can’t cure a battle that someone internally fights. She wasn’t selfish. She most likely truly believed that her family, friends, business teams, and the rest of world, would be better off without her. 😞 RIP #katevalentinespade ; I hope you are at peace. ☎️ Suicide prevention - 1-800-273-8255 . . . . . . #mentalhealthawareness #katespadenewyork #sosad #mentalhealth #internalbattles #supportiskey #outreach #suicideprevention #yourmindmatters #youmatter #suicidepreventionday #bea #katespadehandbag #internalstruggle #supportiskey #psychology #prayforherfamily #frances #katevalentine #livecolorfully #helpishere #tellsomebody #spade #francesvalentine #bringawareness #depression

Another gentle reminder that you gain nothing by putting someone down. Mental health is real and wouldn’t you rather be the light than the dark in someone’s journey? And if you wish to be the dark, please enlighten me on why you feel that way?! #katespade #internalstruggle #empowerment #empower #motivate #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #helpmehelpyou #reachout #suicideprevention #suicideawareness #fuckbullies #bullyingawareness
When you put out every signal that you want to be alone....and he refuses to let you 😂 find someone who won’t leave you when mental illness acts up. Someone who gets that silent presence and support are important too. • • #mental #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #socialanxiety #wellness #selfcare #depressive #depression #understanding #understandingdepression #anxiety #chronic #chronicdepression #chronicanxiety #internal #internalstruggle #cope #unhealthycopingmechanisms #toxic #love #support #unconditionallove
Mental health does not discriminate. It shouldn’t be a stigma or only discussed when one of fame suffers. You may have all the material things to make you happy, but inside, you’re struggling. It’s okay to ask for help! It’s okay to check in on your friends and loved ones. It’s important to recognize it and know YOU’RE NOT ALONE! ❤️ You can be strong and fine on the outside but completely broken on the inside. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or to check in on someone. ❤️ Mental health hits so close to home for me in many ways and is always on my heart (even more so now since 2014). Be there for one another. You never know what someone is struggling with internally. • • • #bekind #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #askforhelp #suicideprevention #endthestigma #depression #yourenotalone #betrue #knowyourworth #itsokaynottobeokay #internalstruggle #strength #bethere #ask #knowyourworth #youareloved #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthisreal #depression #youmatter #youareworthy #bestrong #believe
A common misconception is that depression means you are unhappy with your life. That’s not true. You can be happy and still feel depressed. You can be in a loving supportive relationship and still suffer from depression and anxiety. Outside forces do not cause or fix depression. It is completely in your mind. It is something YOU cope with. How you cope with it and how that coping affects your relationships and friendships is the only EXTERNAL aspect of depression. Yes I’m in love. Yes I feel the love and support of my man, always. Yes I love my son. He is the coolest fucking kid ever. But YES depression still visits me. And that’s ok. It’s something I’m working through. The sooner you get past the taboo nature of acknowledging mental health issues, the better off you will be. The healthier your coping mechanisms will become. • #mental #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #socialanxiety #wellness #selfcare #depressive #depression #understanding #understandingdepression #anxiety #chronic #chronicdepression #chronicanxiety #internal #internalstruggle #cope #unhealthycopingmechanisms #toxic #toxicbehavior

I haven’t been posting or doing as much lately, because I’ve been fighting an internal battle that has worked it’s way to the outside. We don’t know exactly what this battle has in store for me, but all I can think about is hiking... this was from the last hike with @zbunmon a few days ago, but it feels like months ago... . . . #internalbattle #hiking #mountainside #snowcapped #mountains #coloradomountains #internalstruggle #medicalproblems
To walk, or not to walk?... that is the question 🤔 #thegreatdebate #internalstruggle
