Hey ZhahZhah Queens don’t forget that social media isn’t always as it seems. Women spend hours on makeup, edit their bodies to the “perfect” size, and then they add three filters! Don’t feel pressure to look like them even when they don’t look like them- LOL!!
The thought of not being able to exercise again after an eating disorder CRUSHES YOU 😰
You're completely recovered but what if...
what if it becomes distorted and you fall back into your old ways?
What if you overdo it?
What if you fall back...😕
Getting back into exercise after an eating disorder is something tricky, but it's also something that's possible with the right help♥️
I created Freedom Fighters because after I recovered I wanted to get back into the gym, but I didn't know how.🤔
more importantly I didn't have someone there to guide me and make sure I was doing it right. .
That I wasn't falling back or overexercising
I've been athlete since I was 5, and the thought of not being able to exercise again crushed me.
I got back into it, but only after obsessing about it like crazy for months, maybe even closer to a year, did I realize how disordered it was.
It's SO hard to see it yourself... Freedom Fighters was designed so that no one else would have to go through this
So that you could reclaim your life and have a healthy relationship with exercise. With someone to text you whenever you needed, someone certified to evaluate you and make sure that you're on the right track ♥️
Freedom Fighters was designed because I don't want another girl to have to go through a year of obsessing over exercise, not quite sure what she's doing
I believe exercise is one of the best forms of self-care💆, but only if you do it correctly.
I'm here to show you how to do just that ♥️
Can't wait to be officially certified on the 30th and start changing lives♥️
COMMENT BELOW WITH YOUR FAVORITE FORM OF EXERCISE 🧘♀️👇👇
A year ago I finally decided enough was enough... 🙅♀️
I was in the midst of attempting to recover from hypothalamic amenorrhoea and get a regular period (off the pill) for the first time in my adult life. In order to do this, I'd stopped doing the sport that had defined me for the previous 5 years of my life. I constantly questioned my food choices, worried I was doing too much, or not enough exercise, constantly felt like I should change something about my eating because of the weight I'd gained. All the while I was helping others achieve their health and fitness goals but was seriously unhappy with my body and knew that there had to be more to life than this constant strive for 'physical perfection'.
It was then that I decided I deserved more... So I invested in my own coach...
Fast forward a year I don't believe its a coincidence that I'm traveling the world, doing what I love, coaching amazing women, eating whatever the f I feel like and doing activities and movement that make me happy. Did I mention feeling good in my body, accepting myself as I am and knowing that my worth is not attached to my physical body 🙌🙌
I'm sharing this is so that you know, no matter where you are in your journey to finding love for your body, over coming restrictive eating or recovering from hypothalamic amenorrhoea. It is possible for you!!
You do not have to do it alone, I certainly didn't. There are many amazing coaches and therapists out there who will provide you the support and accountability you need!
There is sooo much FREEDOM on the other side! I want that for you!
Comment or dm me if this is something you want for you as well... And if you know someone who would benefit from seeing this please tag them below 🥰
All my love ❤️❤️

Around this time last year.. I went into a dark place due to all the pressure, mental health probs, and weight gain. Didn’t talk to anyone about it. Didn’t ask for help. Didn’t ask for guidance. Didn’t do anything about it. If you’re feeling like this just know you’re not alone. 🤟🏽I’ve been in your shoes. I know that feeling. Feeling of failure, disappointment, and just feeling discouraged. But know that you don’t have to go through that alone! I got plugged into these accountability workout groups and it seriously flipped the switch. 💡💖helped me learn and grow. If these affirmations resign with you and you need any kind of support/guidance. This is your invitation 💌 my group is always open! #selfloveclub
Just got some kissable lips right in time for Valentine’s Day 💋//@nursejessaesthetics at @apexmedskin is amazingly talented❤️// Right now they have an amazing deal on Restylane Refyne for $329 (reg $550) this month! So if you’ve been thinking about getting this done- Go get your lips filled! // Swipe to see before and immediately after pics ➡️ Just keep in mind my upper lip is VERY swollen in this picture and has gone down significantly since 😅//
I also posted a video of the injections on IGTV- WARNING- it’s a bit bloody because I didn’t follow the pretreatment rules 🤦🏻♀️ no biggie, just messy 🙃
How to get BEACH BOD!! 🔥 take yo body to da beach!💦 How I maintain this juicy mama is by only socialising with foods and wine 🍷 preferably a vintage shiraz, or what Evers on special at countdown.
Also find a job where you don’t move all day . That’s where I aced it! I work on my skin damage and read great non fiction of the 21st century, while my pal Maree does all the work #blessed
Last summer I was a hottie with energy of a meth head, but unfortunately the self esteem was still lower than my IQ. Ugh so random!
But I’ve realised (after many personal development coaching sessions and self help books ) that my cartilage is only wearing down and Thailand is a few years away yet, 🤔🤫
fuck it .
This is my body. With Far too much gluten, but my mind is beautiful. And the sea is delicious.
Carpe diem. Je t’aime all that good stuff.

Don't mess with the flow of your body!! Drink water when you feel thirsty, eat nutritious foods when your body craves fuel, sleep when you feel tired, move when you have energy to burn, and take a rest day when you need it. Your body knows what you need, listen to your body & your body will listen to you⚡️🌞🌱🍃 #vegan

What is your favorite Martin Luther King jr. Quote? 🌻I'm sure we are all seeing so many amazing quotes from this revolutionary man. Why don't we make sure that his quotes are not just words on a page.... But something we remember to live in our own lives. Choose Love.

Hello everyone! I just want to share a little personal insight today and say it's never been worth my energy to be ashamed of myself. I have always been torn down by people around me and it always made me question myself again, but I was born myself for a reason. I have learned to love myself, despite being degraded to a point of self hatred because I have finally realized I am beautiful inside and out and so is everyone else. I would like to advise to anyone who struggles with confidence to be yourself, and take what other's say with a grain of salt so to speak. Remember to decipher facts from opinions and don't doubt or second guess yourself because of a thought someone else has about you. You know who you are, and you know where you've been. I'm strong because despite people's disgusting thoughts and portrayals, I stay true to myself and I stand up for my life. I have so much love in my heart and it doesn't matter who thinks what; what matters is the truth. I know myself and I know my worth and I hope everyone realizes it for themselves someday, too because it is a powerful and beautiful place to be when you are happy. Bless you all, be kind to yourselves. There is enough evil in this world.

food medicine 💙
food used to mean these things for me….. anxiety, bad, avoid at all costs, something only certain people could enjoy.
I know now how freaking stupid that mentality is.
food is medicine. food is healing. my metabolism and digestive system are both so wack from chronic dieting, binging, restricting. eating whole, real food is what’s going to help me get better.
staying in the mindset I’ve had for almost 5 years isn’t going to help me get anywhere. and I’m ready to go someplace new. #rosemarysagethyme

Your past does not define your future. 💫
Everyday is a new chance. A fresh start. A beautiful beginning. We get to rewrite our story in any given moment.
What story have you been holding onto that has been weighing heavenly on your heart? What self-destructing thoughts have been holding you back?
All it takes is one decision and your entire life can change. You see, that’s what our lives are made up of...a series of choices that have led us to where we are. If we want something different, we simply have to make different choices.
Don’t be afraid to tap into your power. To change your story. To let yourself become all that you have desired to be. You are supported. You are enough. You are capable. You are deeply loved.
Comment below with a story you are ready to rewrite!😍👇🏼
You do not have to have ABS to be FAB 🤩 basically my new motto ✨ I honestly became 10X happier when I stopped trying seeing my body as having to look a certain way and instead accepted my natural shape and size 🥑🍊🍐 I’m still very petite but I store most of my fat on my stomach and hips. Some people store theirs on their legs, others on their arms, but for me it was always my stomach. The fear of putting on weight stopped me from doing things I enjoy - going out for meals with friends and indulging in foods I enjoyed. I’d feel immense guilt for skipping the gym and would prioritize gyming over having fun. Yes, exercise and eating healthy still play a massive role in my life, but I do this in a way that is way more balanced and makes me so much happier 😍♥️ Moral of the story: having abs doesn’t guarantee you’re going to feel great about yourself 😇 Prioritizing the things you love will 🌟

As part of my self-love I choose to wear things that feel good on my body and have me feeling my best. I no longer hold space for the things I that don’t serve my higher self or lead me to feeling confident, comfortable, sexy, empowered or motivated.
For me this manifests in a wardrobe of natural fibres ethically sourced and fairly made and created with love and sensitivity to their impact on our home. It also looks like pieces that “spark joy” (thank you, Marie Kondo) and bring an inner smile when I hold and wear them.

Woke up with this thought in my head “A healthy lifestyle not only changes your BODY, it changes your MIND, your attitude and your mood” and realised how I true is that ..
I mean.. in the past few months I have changed a lot, and I am not talking about the physical changes, I am talking about the positive mental ones here, ok🥰?
I learned how to love myself for who I am, forget the past and live in the present, accept ALL of myself,how to overcome my fears and insecurities, embraced non-comparison which we tend to do a lot btw in this social media era 👀👋🏼 All in all I became stronger and happier 🌼
I am sure that is due to the lifestyle I choose to live every single day💓
Having such a busy day today, but still training later some glutes and hamstrings 🍑
