This salad was SO freaking good💚. Spring mix, cucumbers, slices of avocado, and chicken. By the the way- if you have any tips on how to cut an avocado share them with me because I just kind of cut it up because it intimated me 🙈.
Say good bye to Buter-Fed Fitness (the picture is from December 2016 when the idea of Butter-Fed popped into my head thanks to some lovely caring people @explorewanderdiscover
). Ambitious from despair rather than inspiration.
More than a year ago decided to make a few adjustments. Gave up long hair and a sea-view terrace, gave up waking up at 10, not knowing what day of the week it was while strolling pointlessly to the beach to swim and take pictures that nobody cared for. Gave up eating beyond the capacity of my stomach and sweating it off in the gym every day, gave up silly sitcoms, gave up a TV set altogther, gave up crying from emptiness and not understanding any of it. Gave up being weak, gave up being scared. I gave up nice things too, nicer than the sea-view terrace- I gave up love. I understood there are many different ways to love and this one no longer sat well with me. But, still, I gave up LOVE in whatever form it was:( But I also gave up not loving myself and this probably is the one that wins.
It's taking me a freakishly long time, but given the "not knowing what day it is" i'll cut myself some slack, some newly-acquired slack. It's time though to start putting what's been cooking in my head on paper and with this has to come my new project with a new name (the old one wasn't really a project, just very unstructured ambitions..) Meet *STICKY WELLNESS*. Healthy habits have to stick, right? (And nut butters are sticky too 🙊) All your health #beyondmacros
will be delivered right here. Living awesome has been made easy, are you ready?

Happy Tuesday ya gorgeous humans! 🌻💛 I hope you have rolled out of bed feeling beautiful and determined to make today a wonderful day! If you didn't, crawl back in, recalibrate your thoughts then roll back out with a better mindset. 😊 The moment your eyes open and your feet hit the floor should be the moment you decide that it will be a good day. The day will never be good unless you make it good! You hold the power. It is up to you. Don't let anyone ruin your day. Don't let someone's grumpy mood, depressing tone or a snark remark kill your positive vibes! Sure it will be frustrating and might shake you for a second but it's a minor detail! Don't give someone the power to rule your day and impact your mood negatively. Perhaps they didn't intend on it coming across negatively, or perhaps they did. Either way, don't beat yourself up over trying to figure out the why's of it all. Maybe they are having a rough time and are taking it out on others (even though that is NOT an excuse!). Maybe ask them if they're ok and if they don't change their tone, leave it at that and go about your day. You've done your part and you can stop stressing. You need to look after yourself and your happiness. How can you expect to give love and ooze happiness if you aren't filled with it yourself? You can't pour from an empty glass, remember that! Have a lovely day my friends and please be kind to one another, we need more of that in this world. 🙏

Whats your win for the day?? I am really proud of myself.. when I DO decide to put my mind to something I am quite motivated and self disciplined.
For the last few weeks I’ve not skipped breakfast (this was really hard) I’ve cut down on my coffee (from 6-8 cups a day to 1-2 a day) I drink my 2 cups of herbal tea and I’ve lost 10lbs. I always wanted the easy/quick ways out but at the end of the day it all comes piling back on I’ve been there. I feel healthy, I get a good nights sleep, wake up and have some me time before the kids wake up. Tomorrow I’m off to the shops to purchase me a size smaller jeans ready for Wednesday. I’m so excited... change your mindset and watch the change in you. #bekindtoyourself
“Self-love is not tangible. People often confuse what they have with what they're actually worth. Your exterior could look amazing. But if you’re internally toxic nothing else matters. As Lauryn Hill would say, “How you gone win when you ain’t right within?”💡
Ultimately, you’re doing yourself and others a disservice when you don’t take the time to do the work. Read my most recent blog post on Self Love. You gotta be self aware before you love yourself. You gotta love yourself before you know your worth. It’s time to raise the price tag. Link In Bio💜

Have you ever fallen in friend-love? It’s happened a few times in my life, when you are smacked in the face with the most perfect person, someone your soul has been craving and you didn’t even realise? Those moments are life changing. Game changing.
I received this from a friend the other day. In a moment where I was so low, so done, so broken. How she knew I needed it, I’ll never know. But this was my turning point. If there are people in the world that can “get you” this much, then why on earth would you ever want to change. Let them “get you”, and more importantly, let those that don’t. It’s not your problem.
Did she know I said The Serenity Prayer at my mothers funeral? No.
Friend, I love you. Always. Forever. #theotherserenityprayer #serenityprayer #anxiety #friends #bff #friendgoals #selflove #loveyou #bekindtoyourself #serenity #courage #wisdom
“Use what you have... do what you can!” - Arthur Ashe” Remember: We’re all doing the best we can, if other people can’t see that, that’s on them not you! Stop being so hard on yourself!
I’m in my sewing ✂️ room today and I just love this reminder. I purposely have this beside me as I work. “What you CREATE doesn’t have to be PERFECT” -Dieter F. Uchtdorf- I’m such a perfectionist and get caught up in the small imperfections in ANYTHING I do in life. Things that don’t measure up to MY STANDARDS. My sewing, 🎹 piano playing, house projects, my body...pretty much everything🤦🏼♀️. BUT, With age has come MORE gentle acceptance in all I do. I don’t get half as hung up on things as I did in 20’s, 30’ or 40’s. I’m understanding why my mom used to tell me that your 50’s are the GOLDEN YEARS. You learn to live more in the moment, let things roll off your back, don’t stress about little things that no one but YOU would notice. To all you young mothers that may be guilty of feeling like what you do and who you are in life are not perfect...take a tiny piece of advice from a self proclaimed perfectionist. Instead of picking apart that one negative in whatever you are making or doing, 🛑 STOP✋ . Instead, start making a list in your head FIRST of what the positives are👍🏻. And if you MUST find that one imperfection (that one seam that is a tiny bit crooked), all the positives you just listed, will overpower the one little thing that is ONLY important to you. TRUST me when I say, NO ONE is gonna notice that except 😬👈🏻you. #bekindtoyourself #youaregoodenough #youareawesome #selflove #seamstress #seamstresslife
It's risky whenever you try something new, or if you're working toward a goal, or learning some skill like how to trust your body and eat mindfully. Why?
Because you might fail.
And that's one of the biggest thing, right? One of our biggest fears, that we'll mess it up, or it won't work for us, or any number of "what if's" that ultimately are based around the question of "What if I fail?"
And when it's not a "what if," but the reality, then what?
One of my mentors asked me a question that I want to share with you:
Are you looking through the lens of failure or feedback?
So the next time you feel like you weren't "good enough" or haven't eaten the "right way" or forgot to be mindful for who knows how long... don't stress about it. Stop the negative self-talk that's probably going through your head about the scenario, and focus on the behaviors and the outcome.
It's not a failure, it's opportunity to learn and try something different next time.
The outcome wasn't what you wanted. So think through the situation and find one small behavior that you can change to get you closer to the desired outcome the next time.
Do this with grace and kindness, knowing that food is neutral and practice makes better, and you're on your way to your goals.
Here's to your continued growth and forward progress!
“Those who mind don’t matter, and those who don’t mind matter” is exactly what I think about when I set boundaries. You can say “no” and still be an incredible, loving, respectful person while interacting with others. Self-respect and self-awareness do not equal rejection of others. There is always a way to cater to your emotional needs while being attentive and caring to those you love. 🌻
