I’m guilty of exhaustion.  I’ve definitely felt like ‘time off’ is a sign of weakness.  That ‘the early bird gets the worm’, ‘hard work pays off’ and that my days were defined by the number of things checked off my to-do list.  It’s exhausting.
.
I’ve work myself nonstop and have had a tough time letting go and finding balance.  I’d say ‘yes’ too often, overextended myself, didn’t set boundaries, and continuously poured from an empty cup.  It felt a lot like living like an iPhone stuck on 3%. No bueno.
.
The ‘if you ain’t first, you’re last’ mentally caught up to me.  I started doing mandatory Self Care Sunday’s... A day dedicated to recharging and reconnecting with myself, things I love, nature, fun, pampering or whatever else I feel like doing.  Sometimes I’ll ask myself ‘what do you want to do?’ And whatever pops up is what I’ll do.
.
Sometimes it’s nothing. It’s nice to not have to think for a change and just be. This has become my fave ritual and I honestly don’t know how I survived without it.  Even if it’s just 20 minutes or something simple like buying myself flowers.
.
I’ve had so many women tell me how overworked, overwhelmed, under-appreciated, anxious, stressed, and tired they feel.... and their to-do lists often times don’t have anything penciled in for them to recharge.
.
I’ve talked to women that feel guilty for doing things for themselves.
.
I’ve talked to women that are great at scheduling fun things and rest.

These posts from @brenebrown and @third_eye_thirst (swipe 👉🏼) were great reminders for me. I found some random tips on Pinterest to inspire ideas, in case you need it. (if you know the original artists, plz let me know so I can tag them).
.
Nature walks, reading, doing a face mask/painting my nails, catching up with friends, and online shopping are my fave go-to’s lately.  And I still struggle with guilt sometimes.
.
Do you skip self care?  Or feel guilty and skip it?  How do you replenish your energy?  What works for you?  Please let me know in the comments, I’d love to know. 💖
Love this one.  Perfect is the worst goal you can have because it’s unattainable and immediately shifts your focus to everything that isn’t perfect and ‘needs to be fixed’. Perfectionism makes it hard to be authentically motivated because you feel like $***. Authentic motivation feels good. 💖 I used to try to be perfect.  It made me nuts lol  Have you ever tried to be perfect?  How did it make you feel?

WAKE UP W. THIS KIND OF ATTITUDE❗️
Comparison kills confidence.  And that’s a fact.
.
Do you have any idea how special you are?
.
Genetically speaking, you’re like a snowflake darlin’. Completely unique, one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable.  There is nobody else like you and there never will be.

And if the perfectly polished, styled, photo shopped hotties with ‘flawless’ faces and bodies you see online and in magazines ever make you question that, I suggest you go follow @celebface

I guarantee it’ll boost your self esteem and feel a lot better about being you. 💖😘
I’ve pretty much ghosted my social media because I’ve been very sick and depressed and weak lately.  After almost 1 year of nonstop testing, labs and rolling my eyes at ‘normal’ results I’m 100% confident it’s my breast implants and I can’t wait to get them removed!! .
I swear celery juice is the only thing keeping me going lately and it really helps keep the inflammation down.  It’s super easy to make, too.  I use the blender method and a nut milk bag.  Works like a charm 👌🏼 ##Repost @medicalmedium ・・・
| HOW TO MAKE CELERY JUICE | Celery Juice is a strongly alkaline drink that helps to counteract acidosis, purify the bloodstream, aid in digestion, prevent migraines, relax the nerves, reduce blood pressure, and clear up skin problems. Celery contains compounds called coumarins which are known to enhance the activity of certain white blood cells and support the vascular system.

Celery’s rich organic sodium content has the ability to dislodge calcium deposits from the joints and holds them in solution until they can be eliminated safely from the kidneys. Celery is a well known natural diuretic and has ample ability to flush toxins out of the body. Celery also has significant anti-inflammatory properties making it an essential food for those who suffer from autoimmune illnesses and can significantly improve digestion and overall gut health.

It also contains significant amounts of calcium and silicon which can aid in the repair of damaged ligaments and bones. Celery is rich in vitamin A, magnesium, and iron which all help to nourish the blood and aid those suffering from rheumatism, high blood pressure, arthritis, and anemia. 
Fresh celery juice is one of the most powerful and healing juices one can drink. 
___

Just 16 oz of fresh celery juice a day can transform your health and digestion in as little as one week.

Monday vibes.  But I went anyway.  Because if I only worked out when I felt like it, I’d never go.

If you feel resistance to workout too it’s normal.  Your biology is designed to keep you comfy and avoid pain.  Your brain will resist change. 
Growth comes from changing your thoughts, patterns and doing the uncomfortable - even when you don’t feel like it.

And even when you’re in an exercise routine, your brain remembers how good it feels to ‘skip it’ and will try to seduce you with excuses to get comfy again.

So you may not always roll through your workout doing jazz hands, excited about it.  If you’re feeling unmotivated to do something, do it anyway. 
The feel-good endorphins you’ll get from exercise are so worth it and makes it easier to change your mindset and get motivated. 🙌🏼🥇 #Mindset #motivation #workoutmotivation #mondaymotivation #monday #morning #fitnessmotivation

I’ve been working with so so so many lovely ladies lately all trying to break free from the yo-yo diet struggle cycle. 💖
.
All started struggling with feeling worthy by either comparing themselves to someone else in school, being bullied, emotionally abused, or fat-shamed... and all started yo-yo dieting very young to try to ‘fix’ what wasn’t good enough.  And here they are still feeling like they’re not good enough, decades later, because they don’t look ‘good enough.’
.
I’ve been there. For me, not feeling good enough started at 5 after a life-changing accident that resulted in 4 reconstructive surgeries on my face between the ages 5-7.  Kinda hard to feel ‘good’ when you have a team of doctors and family around talking about what’s wrong with you and what needs ‘fixing’ ya feel me?
.
Confession:: that’s why I don’t post photos of myself that often.  I still have a tough time having my picture taken even though the outside was ‘fixed’ but I’m working on it.
.
After hearing so many other’s stories - I can’t help but think how many women would have benefited from a pep talk that let them know “You’re good enough - No matter what.” I think a conversation like that could have changed my life.
.
I wanna know... would hearing ‘you’re enough, regardless of your looks/body/weight’ have helped you, too?  Let me know in the comments.
.
And just so you know... You ARE good enough, no matter what, and you are loved more than you know. 💖
