When I first started my fitness journey, it was with one sole purpose in mind — to lose weight, and honestly, I was pretty successful. I obsessed over it. Choosing late night/early morning workouts when I was only getting three hours of sleep. Having a food that wasn’t “approved” meant spiraling and restricting myself until I was dizzy. Stepping on the scale meant a flare up of anxiety and a wave of guilt if god forbid it showed that I fluctuated and gained a pound. I lost over 50 pounds last year and yet when I realized that I was less happy and more anxious than before I started, I knew it was time to take a step back. I finally realized that sacrificing my mental, emotional, and spiritual health on the altar of misguided “physical health” wasn’t healthy at all. I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking and praying and meditating and healing these past few months, trying to figure out how fitness in particular fits into my healing journey. For now, I’m relearning how to listen to my body and have been doing the things that feel best in any given moment — I’m still moving my body and doing things like lifting, yoga, and cardio, but on my own terms. Sometimes it’s an evening stroll around town with my hubs, sometimes it’s going to an early morning yoga class, sometimes it’s lifting something heavy. Regardless of what I choose to do, the only thing that matters is that my relationship with movement is slowly being redeemed, in a healthy and balanced way. It may not be perfect or pretty, it’s my journey, and I’m grateful for every single step ✨ #healthateverysize

How do you define self-love?💖 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For @heathereinhardt, self-love is a righteous knowing of who we are - and when we allow ourselves to take full responsibility of our thoughts, actions, and decisions - we allow ourselves to fully embody our own self-love, and grow into the best version of who we are 🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love this quote from this week’s new episode, and it’s such a beautiful reminder that we have the power to decide what our journey is going to look like, and feel like 🙏🏻💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What’s your favorite self-love affirmation? Let us know below 👇🏻 and make sure to tune in to this week’s new episode with @heathereinhardt - links in bio ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #unapologeticallyme#selfloveisthebestlove#acceptyourself#embraceyourself#youarehuman#selfloveadvocate#radicalselflove#bekindtoyourself#positiveaffirmations
I’m a chronic over-planner. I pretty much always feel “busy.” You too? It’s taken me time to realize that busy-ness isn’t evidence of my worth as a human. I don’t need to be super mom. I don’t need to achieve all the things. And when I loosened my grip on that belief, it allowed me to be present. It’s so easy to allow the busy-ness to take away my having deep presence with my child or my partner. It’s so easy to distract myself with “work” and “have to” instead of diving into the daily work of facing my fears, facing the stories I have about myself, and building the love and intimacy and connection I desire in my life. If you find yourself distracted, here are steps that help me return to presence. 1. Notice that you feel distracted (don’t judge, just notice). 2. Take some breaths and feel yourself in your body - maybe feel your breath moving in and out of your nose, or feel your bottom wherever you’re sitting. 3. Notice any sensations you have in your body. Direct your awareness to those places as you continue to breathe. 4. This works with whatever you’re doing in the moment - it teaches you to be fully in your body, in whatever you’re experiencing. This seems simple, but it can be quite profound - because a definition of healing is the ability to be completely present in your body 💜 📸 @christopher.keaton #mothering#divorcedmom#selfloveadvocate#selfhelpquotes#womenarestrong#mindsetreset#selftrust#innerwork#selfhealers#proudwoman#womenunite#inspiringwomen#overcome#selfdevelopment#selflovewarrior#selflove#radicalselflove#holisticmom #divorcedmom#motherhoodiswonderful#motherhoodsimplfied#motherhoodadventures#motherhoodiscolorful
There’s just something about feeling so damn good in your own skin that keeps you on cloud 9. ⠀ Feeling this good didn’t just happen for me. I wasn’t always this proud and confident in who I am and the way I spent my days. ⠀ I woke up one day and decided the hardships in my life were no longer going to define me, hold me down and depreciate my value. ⠀ Enter my new morning routine that changed my whole damn life 😭🙌🏼 (there’s a little sneak peak of it right there on my arm) ⠀ You have to decide you are WORTH the happiness, the abundance, the positivity and the confidence you desire. Your struggles DO NOT define you. ⠀ YOU owe it to yourself to feel damn good from the inside out every day for the rest of your life! ⠀
It is time to forgive. Forgive yourself, for all things you think make you less than. You are not your past and your mistakes do not define you. Forgive, heal, grow, and claim your best life. ❤💞❤💞❤💞❤💞❤💞❤💞❤ . . . #forgiveness#selflove#heal
🦋💙🦋 Keep pushing! It doesn't matter what they think, only what you know. Your life, Your truth... Walk in it! 🦋💙🦋 Be Hella Great and take every past mistake and lesson and use it to exalt yourself above everything that tried to destroy you and every one that ever doubted you! 🦋💙🦋 You're inner-getic magic baby! Spread your magic everywhere! 🦋💙🦋

(Share with someone that needs to open their eyes) I’m getting really tired of people saying, “I’m not getting what I want.” 😑 Instead of watching the latest series on Netflix or scratching your ass on the couch, put that time and energy into the steps you NEED to level up! 👈🏼💯 I get it that shit doesn’t happen over night, it takes time. I get that but mark my words.....a year from now, you WILL wish you have started today. Mark my words. 🔑👈🏼 I have a video that goes a bit deeper on YouTube titled: “I Hate Not Having What I Deserve!” - Reasons Why You’re Not Getting What You Want This video would open your eyes to something that you may or may not be aware of. It’s something to note and apply...for real. 💪🏼
Did you know that I am very much an introvert? For the last year as a business owner I made a commitment to myself to push myself out of my comfort zone because this is something I promote in my business so I have to practice what I preach. 💞 Although I may look confident in this image, in a networking event setting my anxiety is through the roof, I’m fighting constantly with that inner self doubt voice in my head. 💞 We talked about this in our meeting for Fly On The Wall last week! How creating habits in our thought patterns, comparing ourselves to others and fear of what others may think, can interfere and stop us from doing a lot of things in life. 💞 This is all so true .... 💞 But just like building a new home, getting into shape, planting a garden ..... you cannot get to the end result without starting the first step, digging the basement, the first workout, planting the seeds. Just like overcoming self doubt, I’m learning and educating others that it takes time and repetition of new habits. 💞 So if you are someone working really hard to improve yourself in life, I want to tell you, your doing a great job, keep going, one step at a time and you’ve got this!

Soñar es el combustible para que el carro de tu vida ande. El sueño y la ilusión tienen la capacidad de movernos a lugares increíbles. Pero obviamente el combustible no es el carro, se necesita motivación, seguridad personal, planeación, disciplina, creatividad, inteligencia emocional, analítica y hasta espiritual para que la máquina de nuestro carro de vida llegue lejos . Esta foto la tomé en Sapzurro, una de las últimas poblaciones de Colombia en su límite con Panamá. Es una población pequeña que vive seguro de la pesca y el turismo. Estos niños iban saliendo de la casa emocionadísimos. Llevaban un tarro plástico profundo, bombas, una caja, y adivinen qué iban a hacer con todo eso?! Pues se iban a “ir al cielo”! Si, claro, al cielo en globo! Tomé la foto pasando rápido mientras una de las niñas corría emocionada. Recuerdan esa sensación? La tuvimos todos! Esa en la que jugamos, nos dejamos actuar libremente, nos imaginamos creando cosas grandiosas con lo que teníamos en casa. La sensación de crear nos da poder, es como el motor que ruge y se permite poner todo en movimiento. Así que creen! Y no solo me refiero a crear artísticamente, o a crear nuevas herramientas y proyectos en sus trabajos, también me refiero a usar su creatividad para crear sus vidas. Hace unos años ese fue el copy que le puse a mis tarjetas de presentación: “haz de tu vida una creación original”. Yo lo hago todos los días, ¿cómo les va a ustedes? Atrévanse que así se crearon los primeros globos, aviones, carros, y así ustedes también pueden ser espectacularmente únicos y originales! 😉🤘🏻😎 . #espsicoterapia#psicologia#meditation#mindfulness#holistictherapy#mindfulhealing#emotionalwellness#happyselflove#selflove#selfloveadvocate#terapiaonline#instapsicologia#psicoterapia#bienestar#felicidad#wellness#selfesteem#parejas#amor#jóvenes#depresión#ansiedad#estrés#happiness#autoestima#familia#amor
Welcome to the #laceproject (Life After a Challenging Experience)!!! I’ve been journaling and documenting my journey after my life’s challenge of breast cancer. This is part of my healing and recovery. I am passionate about healing and balancing the body physically, mentally and spiritually. The move is to inspire others during their difficult battles whatever it may be; depression, weight, anxiety, etc., by providing outlets and encouragement to keep moving forward! My battle is not mine alone. I fight for all the women who are faced with these obstacles 💪🏽 Thank you @jayalexanderphotography for capturing all this 🔥!!! You are THE BEST!!! #positivevibesonly💯 #loveandlight#driven#laceproject#selfloveadvocate#lovintheskinimin#pinklemonade#thelifeturnerllc #thelifeturner🙏🏽🌺🧘🏽♀️💪🏽🍋🎀
While at work, our eyes are fixed either on our computers or on their relatives. When we look away, it provides our eyes with some relaxation or you can even close your eyes and sit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👁 How to avoid eye strain while working on the computer: - Eye exercising ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Proper lighting - Monitor cleaning ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Distance adjusting (40cm - 76cm) - Glare reducing - Fonts scaling ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Frequent blinking

Places in your home.. do you have places in your home where you place sentimental items.. every time I walk past this it makes me happy, I choose different crystals for my meditation altar on different days, each with a different intention. . . 💫 J
Today I yelled at my intuition and told her to calm the fuck down. I said, "okay! I get it!" I have this ritual every night where I close my eyes and visualise my ideal day as if it will happen tomorrow. It usually starts with waking up in an open space bedroom with glass from ceiling to floor overlooking mountains. It's pretty fucking blissful. I also ask myself to show me things that I need to do to create my dream life. This is where I saw my office, my wedding, me writing a book. But lately, I keep getting this visual of me, at a gym, on a treadmill at a decent pace just walking and listening to a podcast for an hour. My logic brain kicks in and says "Bitch you can't even commit to walking the dogs let alone a gym membership!" But this visualisation just won't fucking go away. It has kept coming up for months now. So, I bit the bullet. I joined a gym for the 3rd time in my life. And it's funny because now it's done, I feel a little excited to go. Which hasn't happened with exercise for me in a long time. I share this story to say if you're intuition is kicking in to tell you to do something even when it sounds like a dumb ass idea - just give it ago. You never know where it could lead you. What's your intuition telling you? ❤
There is nothing wrong with letting go of someone who doesn’t nourish your soul-no matter who they are. Letting go of anything and everyone who is toxic will help create inner peace and happiness. Surrounding yourself with positive people will help you have a new outlook on life. I hope you know you’re worth more and never feel guilty for making yourself happy. You deserve everything your heart desires 💗. • If you don’t think so and need more support, please contact me. ✨💖✨
100. What if you were given... 100 workouts to make you sweat. 100 opportunities for growth. 100 chances to get stronger. 100 challenges to face. 100 times to fight for YOU. 100 moments to SAY YES. I’m ready to be 100% in. Are you?
Hey! I'm Moriah. If you're new here, or been around for awhile but we haven't connected I just wanted to say welcome, and tell you a little bit about myself. Here I am when I'm grounded and in my body, have been in water or been writing for awhile, when I am both connected to my emotions and creative energy, and ready to ignite and excite and be with you :) I feel good when I am in my body, my emotions, my creative energy, and when I’ve been connecting deeply with others, and that’s where I can really show up for you. # # I am a writer, mama, grounded empathic healer, and life coach. I’m a therapist who didn’t finish my graduate degree, but discovered coaching:healing:mediation:somatic work along the way. I found I was actually able to offer more of myself and my passion in this medium. I use feminist, embodied, and depth perspectives in my work. In my coaching, and writing, I support people in reconnecting with their truth, authenticity, sensuality, beauty, and passion. I am a space holder for people who are in transition, or who want to transform parts of their life/relationships/work/creative process. I help people grieve, hold boundaries, say fuck yes to what they really want and get clear about what’s no longer serving them. I really listen to you. I open my heart to you, travel in the shadow and the light, & tune in on the soul level. I create a safe space to explore what’s going on, and we start there. I walk through the messy and the wild and the beautiful places with you, and over time, we start to co create and reclaim what’s been lost, what’s gone missing, and honor your power. # My website and business The Sky Inside (link in profile- you should subscribe!) says more about me and my coaching. And I would love to do this work with you- my work is actually affordable, real, deep, heart mending, playful, serious, and loving. Summer offerings coming this week ~ stay tuned!
SOMETIMES I do this weird thing right. . . . And it's happening more and more often. . . . I look at myself in the mirror . . . And I talk. To myself. . . . I tell myself that I am enough. . . . That I am loved. Loving and Lovable. . . . I say things like, I love myself and I am confident in all of my decisions. That I AM worthy. . . . That I have the ability to be, do and have anything I desire in life. . . . That I CAN achieve ANYTHING I set my mind and passion to, with effort, action and belief. . . . But why? Why do I say these things to myself? . . . Well, because all of the negative, sabotaging, bully like inner chatter over the years has NOT served me in the slightest. Simple. . . . There was something that wasn't working in my favour and that was how I portrayed myself. How I felt about myself. My relationship with myself, (yes we have relationships with ourselves) and how I viewed myself. . . . I hated myself. . . . But do you know what I hated more.....the feeling of being unhappy. The feeling of unfulfillment. Craving for more, but never feeling good enough to go for it. The feeling of not having a fire in me. . . . Once I grew awareness to how much my THOUGHTS alone were holding me back, I decided to commit to becoming the best version of me. Hence the empowering self talk! This is one of the things I do. . . . The more I talk to myself the more I understand myself. There are still moments where the negative talk slips in, like today! but I am so much more susceptible to it! I catch myself out. . . . Changing my self talk changes my life!!! . . . Have a think now What is ONE thing you constantly say to yourself? Is this ONE thing empowering or dis-empowering? In what ways is this ONE thing serving you? Do you need to change it?
“I get asked all the time if I regret being so open about my breast cancer journey. My answer to that question is, like most everything I’ve experienced throughout this process, complicated. I sometimes do regret sharing everything with the world. It’s super scary to be open and vulnerable. It’s nerve wracking to know that I’m putting myself out there to be judged. It gives me anxiety that I’ll misspeak or won’t be enough to encourage others. I frequently think about how easy it would’ve been to just tell my close circle, slap on a wig and call it a day. Sounds like plenty of reasons to crawl in my shell and wish I could take it all back, right?? WRONG!! Whenever I feel nervous, anxious or scared about sharing my journey, I remember how absolutely, overwhelmingly nervous, anxious and straight up TERRIFIED I was when I was diagnosed. I had no one else to talk to about what I was about to face. I knew no one who had gone through this. I was walking into the eye of the storm completely unprepared and I wished so desperately that I could’ve found another girl like me to be a resource and inspiration for all I had yet to face. That’s exactly why I do what I do. Sure, it’s awkward to talk about filling up my foobs. Yes, telling people why I had to be hospitalized and cancel my last round of chemo was extremely cringeworthy. But I’ve been given the incredible opportunity and platform to help others and to truly make a difference. No WAY would I regret that💪🏼💖" -Alexandria Whitaker, Breast Cancer Warrior #breastcancer#breastcancerawareness#chemotherapy#chemosucks#baldisbeautiful#selflove#whittystittycommittee#chemotherapytreatment#selfloveadvocate#breastcancerwarrior#patientshelpingpatients#thepatientstory
RITUALS.. are such a nourishing practice. They encourage mindfulness into our lives. Even just something as simple as setting up a meaningful centrepiece on our table creates intention within. Rose petals for love, lavender for cleansing and a candle for mindfulness. . . 🌟 J
“we are allowed to have hard days. we are allowed to feel unbelievable lows. it doesn’t make us less effective as people, it means we have greater capacities to achieve unbelievable highs and accomplishments. everything you have been through in life has lead you to this moment. you have all of the tools you need inside of you to turn yourself around and love yourself. even if one of those tools is lying all night on your floor and crying. feeling bad is also a tool. luckily, you don’t have to feel bad or do any of this alone. you have me, your best friend. let’s do this” not too long ago i received this note (swipe) from someone very important to me since then, these words have comforted me through some hard moments...and now i’m finally passing them on, hoping they do the same for you if you’re struggling, i see you...the real you...and i want you to know that you don’t have to go through this alone i’m always here. love you.

Life is better in the upside down. If I would have had someone to show me the way years ago... If I would have had knowledgeable guidance years ago... If I would have had a strategy right off the bat that worked for just for ME... My life would have been flipped upside down... I would have saved SO MUCH TIME in my health and happiness journey. LIKE...YEARS. If I would have had the mentorship of a person who understood my struggles of being a stressed and overworked mama who was struggling to make the right choices for myself and my family... If I would have had a coach who knew the path and cheered me on... It would have flipped my life upside down and given me back YEARS of not just my health, but my happiness, joy, and fulfillment. For years I was not satisfied with how I felt about myself and knew that if I didn’t decide to commit to changing, then I would stay right where I was. That’s what I finally realized when I was DONE living my life of mediocrity - my body was out of shape, my mind was out of sorts, I was out of energy, and my spirit was almost broken. Nothing changes if nothing changes. So I worked at transforming my body. And I worked at transforming my mind. And along the way my spirit transformed too and I became FULLY ALIVE again. BUT IT TOOK YEARS of blindly wandering the health and wellness landscape, trying and failing and trying again until I had enough tools under my belt to know which ones really worked. Transformations like this aren’t just for me, they are for everyone. Anyone who is willing to put in the work can be transformed. And I am here to help the mamas out there do it for themselves because I did it for myself. That’s how Wholly Fit was born. That’s the kind of transformation we work on for you inside my Wholly Fit coaching program. Transform your body. Transform your mind. Transform
Happy Happyyyy Tuesday 💖 Fun Fact: Every time I see myself in a mirror I tell my inner child how much I Love Her 💖 lol My dad use to think I was conceited because he saw me checking myself out in a mirror every time I'd pass by one hahaha #heavenlybella#loveyourinnerchild#innerchildwork#mirrorwork
