As I therapist, I literally preach SELF CARE...BUT often neglect my own ...I choose to create photos that make me feel beautiful as part of my self care. Often women are looked down on for taking these types of pics and for plus size ... I mean hell we are scrutinized...... I debated on posting it because I recognize that there are still some people in this world who would see this as " attention seeking,and/or distasteful.... Lol.... See it how you want.... But this is a self appreciation photo... Appreciation of my body, my mind, and my creativity...... And honestly, I'm on a self love train that isnt about to stop anytime soon lol so if this is bothering you.... Well lol you might want to unfollow. ..... Black on black
Well behaved women rarely make history...... Disorder for order... .
Does one even call it a diet if they love it?😍 Send mouths, I made enough for a small army. Guess it’ll make good meal prep for a while.
So we have this awesome space that we want to invite you to .... #selflove ladymackxo when was the last time you loved yourself :) it’s time plus there’s coffee @ Kyoto Coffee https://www.instagram.com/p/B85DN5yHtAB/?igshid=1hk85gqxc8jwf …
A long, long time ago when I was in college I met a boy one year after a very traumatic break-up that made me question everything about my own existence. But, this boy was a breath of fresh air. I probably shouldn’t call him a boy, but he wasn’t quite a man either. I was older than him by two years and at the age of twenty-three, I felt ancient. I spent a lot of time with this guy because we had a lot of the same classes, and I guess he liked me. I was so reserved with my heart because I was afraid of what had happened to me in my past. When he asked me to be his girlfriend, my gut told me no, and I told him I wanted to remain friends. Out of guilt, and because he continued to spend time with me, a few weeks later I told him I would reconsider and to be his girlfriend. For the first time in a year I felt comfortable. Our relationship only lasted a few months and then he broke up with me. I was devastated. I felt like I betrayed myself and that he should have felt honored that I allowed myself to love him. This breakup was my undoing as well. I began to cling to people like I was suffocating. I thought I was hard to love, so I accepted the love that was given to me. I was so afraid of it being taken away from me that I lost sight of what was truly important; loving myself.
One day I just snapped out of it. I didn’t care anymore if no one wanted to love me. It was whatever to me because I started to love myself. And the more love I gave myself, the more I realized the people around me took notice.
And that was when I met my (now) husband.
Everything you go through teaches you lessons. Sometimes the same lesson comes around more than once since you didn’t quite seem to understand it the first time.
I forgave both of the people who broke my heart because I was at peace with the situation and honored their part in my life. They taught me lessons about myself, and I have learned to love myself. However, my husband continuously is teaching me that lesson. Not in the same way it has happened in my past, but more as an accountability. He helps me get through my self-betrayal and navigates the rough seas in my soul. I’m still learning...but I’m one step closer to me.

I completed a 150lb deadlift set yesterday.
This is double the weight amount I was lifting 2 months ago.
This is a big deal not only because each time I work out I max out and do the most I can possibly do which makes me feel satisfied and stronger, but also because I continue to do the things I once didn't think I could do, and further build confidence and self esteem in my inner world, which will always translate into my external world.
If someone had told me 2 months ago that I'd be doing 150, and steadily increasing by now, I wouldnt have been able to see it. Because I had never done and we are always operating within a limit of what we have either done before or can narrowly imagine doing.
Even when we are imagining "big", it's still limited by our own thoughts, beliefs and experiences.
So I could possibly imagine 2,3 or 5 more lbs each time, but not double, it was not in my range of comprehending.
As we steadily do the things we never thought we could or would do, we grow and expand into more and allow ourselves to see an even bigger picture, and it gets to keep growing.
Sometimes its going to take small baby steps, tiny little shifts, but bit by bit, shift by shift, pound by pound, movement by movement, things change, and we get where we are going and then...we keep going.
We get to think big and as we expand into that we prove to ourselves more and better is possible and continuously evolve and create the life we desire, whatever it may be.
Keep going, keep dreaming, keep evolving. 😘

Is it bad that when I see "for my future husband/wife" posts the first thing that comes to my mind is that I wanna do it for myself and my friends akjzjdjjd like can we think about the beauty of self-love and platonic friendships
TRUST, BREATHE, & LET GO. Cleanse your space, and cultivate love 💖 -
We all have something we’re working on— whether it’s a new goal, a dream job, a dream business, promotion, healing, finding something new. Whatever it is you have to do the extra work and trust that it will get you to where you want to be. ❣️ -
Remember to let go of the negative, the stuff that weighs you down (even if it’s just your thoughts), all of the things not serving you — release them and breathe. Create space in your life & heart for the positive & good things that are coming (or that you have). ❤️
No one is you & that is your super power #selflove

My first Soul Session Saturday is complete + it was everything I could’ve asked for ✨
In an intimate, safe space, we spent the afternoon sharing our life journeys, lessons, and affirming each other as we continue to walk our path to our highest self. We set intentions, meditated, journaled, and truly connected.
I want to send a sincere thank you to the beautiful and courageous women that choose to put themselves first by carving out time to honor their experiences and each other. I also want to shoutout @bcawworcester, not only for the beautiful space, but for creating a space right in Worcester where people can come together for art and wellness.
I’m looking forward hosting more Soul Session’s in the future, I hope to see you next time 💕
✨”How do I curb my cravings?”👇
Learning how to troubleshoot cravings can feel hard, but it doesn’t have to be that way forever🙃
It’s actually not about food avoidance, but rather discovering the “satisfaction factor.”
Another common question:
“How do I avoid (insert food people typically view as bad or tend to overeat).”
This can feel challenging for people because first, understanding hunger and fullness is often ignored (👈Not your fault. That’s learned behavior from years of dieting).
Second, honoring preferences is important in creating a long term lifestyle.
People often do everything they can to avoid the foods that they are craving and try to fill the void with other foods that they perceive as more healthy.
This can feel like a solution (at first), but often ends up as a band aid leading to yo-yo dieting and often guilt and anxiety about eating.
👉When you attempt to satisfy that craving with other foods, people can actually end up consuming MORE than if they had just eaten a little bit of the food they were craving.
🤔“So... If I just eat the food I’m craving all the time, how will I ever be healthy and get the results that I want?”
Fair question. When you learn how to eat both intuitively + mindfully, you learn the satisfaction factor.
You can eat a bite of cake and feel actually feel satisfied.
Sometimes, you’ll want the whole piece, but you won’t need it every time, because you know you can always go back and have it again. It’s not a stressful all or nothing situation.
As you practice this, those “forbidden foods” often lose their lust factor and you don’t even crave them as often. It all works together.
Learning the satisfaction factor will allow you to feel more content, often with less food.
Instead of worrying if that food will ruin your results...
✔️You can be more present and enjoy it in the moment.
✔️You won’t feel like you have to overindulge because “this is the last time you will eat it.”
✔️You can eat lots of nutritious foods the majority of the time + have a little cake every now and then.

This is sadly so true.
Conditional love comes from a parent who never received love in order to feel needed, wanted and then learned the tools of self forgiveness and self love. It is a cycle of violence based on misunderstanding what true love is.
But, the cycle can be broken https://twitter.com/ferranti_ashley/status/1231378210643992581 …
