💪🏼 FLEX FRIDAY 💪🏼. ... This is both a flex and no flex zone 😎✊🏼. Don’t compare your behind the scenes to everyone’s else’s highlight reel on social media. Keep it real. Bitch be humble 🤙🏼. 1 day ago

Once you’ve tasted respect attention ain’t that sweet anymore 👸🏻. ... You can’t practice self love with self respect ✊🏼. 1 day ago

To be vulnerable to wear your heart on your sleeve and to share your scars and your story with the world is never a weakness. In fact I think it takes incredible courage. ... Those who truly love and support you will never use this quality against you. Whilst always striving for progress we are imperfect beings. But our imperfections are what make us human. Share and celebrate your accomplishments and progress🙌🏼😄. But I’d like to thank all the tagged ladies for sharing their struggles and bumps in the road too. That shit is hard to do and I’m proud of all of you beautiful souls. It’s hella inspiring🤗. ...💜💜💜... 2 days ago

👙FLEXED AND RELAXED 👙. ... Both are real🤙🏼. Both are me💁🏻‍♀️. Both are cool😎. I used to haaate going to the beach or to the pool or any other activity that involved me being in a bikini 🏖🏝👙🚫. ... I’ll never forget when I was in Budapest at the famous Thermal Baths. I was in the changing rooms about to slip into my bikini and was super excited to mermaid about in such a historical pool of beauty😍🧜🏼‍♀️. I then heard the door of the changing room open and two girls had walked in and started talking to each other saying “I look so fat and bloated today it’s disgusting” and “God is that what I look like? I’ve put on so much weight!” I walked out and was so horrified to see two super beautiful girls body bashing themselves into non existence😕. In my eyes they were young tanned and much slimmer and in shape than I was. So I put my clothes back on went back to the pool side chair and watched everyone else soak up the benefits of the hot springs. I felt so embarrassed and ashamed of my body. My thoughts were ‘if these slim stunning girls are feeling self conscious what the hell do I think I’m doing walking out with my kangaroo pouch and leg dimples on display?’ ... Moral of the story I regret it so much. I regret that I allowed my insecurities to hold me back from experiencing a once in a life time opportunity. I know I can’t change the past but I’m sure as hell never doing that again🙅🏻‍♀️. Don’t ever compare yourself☝🏼. EVERYONE has insecurities. #EmbraceTheSquish 😄 #embracethesquish 4 days ago

Your weekend reminder to never feel that you need to hide parts of yourself in order to be loved... Every part of you tells a story... Own it. Love it✌🏼. 1 week ago

It’s not a Tuesday I know.. but this is a transformation that I really needed to remind myself of today 🐛🦋. ... I think every girl and probably some guys have all experienced ‘fat’ days😳. Today was one of those days for me😕. I felt so self conscious and couldn’t for the life of me feel comfortable in what I was wearing... and being a dancer in tight clothing in front of a mirror for hours can be a little overwhelming on these days🤷🏻‍♀️. When I feel like this it’s a HUGE trigger for me to curl into a ball and ‘give up’ on taking care of myself. And I did indeed eat foods that were less than healthy and ate them mindlessly to distract and comfort myself🍟🍗🥐. ... Buuuut here comes the positive part😇. I pulled my shit together squeezed in a quick workout before rehearsals and slipped into a pair of shorts that I have not been able to fit into for 5 years🎉😄. I always thought that to fit into them again I’d have to be in that restrictive and over exercising mindset to get there. In short 🦋Scales are NOT the only way to measure progress. 🦋One or two days of eating what you want and eating more than usual will NOT set you back as much as you think. 🦋The quicker you pick yourself back up and move on to your normal routine the easier it is to get out of a vicious cycle of comfort eating and self destruction. 🦋Speak to yourself on these days the way you would to a friend sister or Mom if they were feeling down on themselves. 1 week ago

#WOMANPOWERWEDNESDAY 👸🏻👸🏼👸🏾 .. It’s a thing 😉. ... Thank you @tamejen for choreographing this fierceness 🔥👠💄. This dance style is soooo out of my comfort zone since I’m more of a classically trained dancer. But it felt hella good to let my goose loose and whip my hair back and forth👑. If we always stick to what we know and what we’re comfortable with we never truly push ourselves to grow and see what else we’re capable of doing. I’m by no means perfect in this routine 🤷🏻‍♀️ buuuut it reminded me of one important thing. ... Confidence. Is. Sexy. 👑🔥👸🏻. #womanpowerwednesday 1 week ago

🍓PURPLE GOODNESS SMOOTHIE 🍓. ... 💜Frozen blueberries. 💜Orignial Jungle Oats. 💜1 serving of @usnsa vanilla whey protein powder. 💜Ice and water. Throw it all in a blender and feel like a health goddess👑. ... Because I’m a fan of eating intuitively I don’t measure any of my food🤷🏻‍♀️. But if calorie counting is your thing then you can totes adjust it as you like. I love this smoothie because it’s delicious and nutritious slimy yet satisfying😉 and a fab and quick way to get some low GI carbs protein and antioxidants in your bod😁. Also.. it looks really pretty💁🏻‍♀️. 1 week ago

I don’t have a ‘squat booty’. I don’t have the most defined or strongest legs. I don’t have @mistyonpointe calves. I have cellulite. I have stretch marks. I have scars. I have a birthmark that I’ve been self conscious of my whole life. ... However... So what if I don’t have a ‘perfectly sculpted’ bum and average sized calves?🤔 #TeamNoCalves 😂. My legs have been strong enough to allow me to follow my passion and they will continue to get stronger💪🏼. That bit of cellulite on my legs shows that I’m human 🤷🏻‍♀️. “Them stretch marks on yo hips are just bungee cords bringin ya back when ya dip”😎 ~ @akon 🤙🏼. My scars are a sign that I have been through something painful but have been strong enough to pull through. They are a constant reminder that it IS possible to heal 🙏🏼. My birthmark is what makes me me💁🏻‍♀️🧜🏼‍♀️. ... Some #MondayMotivation .. Try to focus on the good 🌻. #teamnocalves #mondaymotivation 1 week ago

⏰HONESTY TIIIIME⏰. This past week has felt like absolute torture for me.. I understand that this sounds dramatic but I am a dramatic person so roll with me here 🤷🏻‍♀️. ... With not being able to dance and train due to my neck injury combined with being on muscle relaxers that would knock me out and leave me feeling like I am suuuuper hungover🤦🏻‍♀️.. needless to say my sleep eating and training patterns have been totally effed and it’s left me feeling drained and frustrated and demotivated to take care of myself 😕. ... Self love is always easy when you feel good about yourself. Or at least I speak for myself when I say that when I can’t exercise the way I’d like as this is a huge coping mechanism for me or I begin to nit pick at things about my body that I don’t like all I want to do is curl into a ball and watch series and shut off from the world. ... I know that logically we aren’t going to be perfect everyday and we’ll have our not-so-healthy ‘feel shit about ourselves days’🤷🏻‍♀️. But if anyone has some coping strategy that works for them to get their butts into gear again when all you feel like doing is going into ‘self-destruct’ mode and throwing in the towel.. paleeeaase let a girl know ✌🏼. I need some assistance with getting out of this funk. 1 week ago

HOW TO DIET ON YOUR BIRTHDAY “Don’t” 👙🍾✌🏼 2 weeks ago

This is more of a mental #TransformationTuesday than a physical one 🦋. ... Although there isn’t a big difference in my appearance between the two pictures nor is one necessarily ‘worse’ than the other. However there has been a huge mental shift during this 11 month time . It didn’t happen overnight and it has taken a lot of heartache frustration and healing to get to where I am now. ... We are and always will be our own harshest critics but sometimes it’s ok and healthy and important for us to sit back and be proud of ourselves for how far we’ve come✅. I still have a long way to go in the ‘self love’ department. But I’m proud of myself for treating my body will a hell of a lot more respect than I once did 💚. ... Learn to be happy in the body that you’re in right now whilst you work towards in your goals. It’s a game changer ✌🏼. #transformationtuesday 2 weeks ago

I am currently throwing myself theee biggest pity party right now 🎉😐😭. Having an injury absolutely sucks and is incredibly frustrating 😩. Especially as a dancer. Having ‘Wry Neck’ is literally a pain in the neck 😒. So no dancing or training for me for a few days.. *throws self dramatically on bed like a Disney princess and sobs uncontrollably - but still with perfect hair* 💁🏻‍♀️. 2 weeks ago

I hope you find someone who knows how to love you when you are sad ❄️ 2 weeks ago

▪️In honor of it having been #NationalEatingDisorderAwarenessWeek .. I have shared some of my own personal experiences when it comes to this mental illness on my @weights_and_watermelon Instagram page. ... ▪️Whilst the different types of eating disorders such as anorexia bulimia EDNOS and binge eating disorder each come hand in hand with their own individual demons the common denominator in all of them is the incredible sense of isolation and low self worth. ... ▪️Because I felt so alone and still to this day every now and then lack self confidence - so many other aspects of my life have suffered as a result. My studies my physical health my relationships.. The things that really matter have taken a huge knock. ... ▪️If I could go back in time and tell my younger self all the casualties and mass destruction that would occur as a result of my eating disorder I’m fairly sure that the number on the scale wouldn’t have seemed so important anymore. That looking a certain way won’t make you more desirable at least with the right people. It won’t make you happier. Whilst it is important to take care of yourself and set goals constantly wanting to ‘improve’ and manipulate our bodies to the detriment of our mental health and those around us is NOT our soul purpose in this world. ... ▪️I would like to thank the people in my life who have never given up on me no matter how difficult I have been and that’s putting it very mildly.. in particular I’d like to thank my wonderful loving parents. Thank you for loving me when I was less than deserving of it for supporting me in every sense of the word throughout my struggles thus far. Thank you for your patience your prayers tough love and understanding through what has been a very difficult time for me over the years. I love you both so much and I can never put into words how blessed I am to have parents like you. ... ▪️To all the people that I have mistreated pushed away and been unloving towards I am so very truly sorry.. ... ▪️To anyone who may be going through this please know that you are not alone. Be kind to everyone as everyone is fighting a battle you may know nothing about. 🦋 #nationaleatingdisorderawarenessweek 3 weeks ago

Dreams are super weird in the sense that your subconscious and everything that you bury in your thoughts throughout the day have free reign to come to life when you sleep😳. Last night I had the WORST recurring nightmares and constantly kept waking up in cold sweats😰. All my biggest fears and most recent traumatic events decided to replay themselves in a never ending horror movie. Long story short I woke up this morning looking and feeling like 💩😒 and super emotional tbh... As tempted as I was to lie in bed with some tv and Netflix and bask in my exhaustion like I can sometimes do I got my frazzled looking self up put on some gangster rap😎🤙🏼 made some coffee ☕️ and got on with my sheeeiit 🏋🏻‍♀️. And also it’s FRIYAY! 🍟😁 3 weeks ago

🍔 YOU DON’T HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE WEEKEND TO TREAT YO SELF 🍔 A MASSIVE trigger for binge eating is deprivation. Constantly telling yourself that you can’t eat any ‘bad foods’ until your cheat meal is like an elastic band - the longer you hold out the harder the snap back will be. I came home at the end of my day and was craaaaving a burger and chips chips my kryptonite. So I pushed away the feelings of guilt and doubt and got my bag of deliciousness delivered 😁🍔🍟. Have a mid week treat. Have another treat on the weekend and keep active and getting in the healthier things the rest of the time😋🥗✅. It’s far less damaging than holding out the whole week then come Saturday you’re in a food coma hating yourself for losing control.. again 🙅🏻‍♀️. 3 weeks ago

You will always be too much of something to someone. Too big too loud too soft too edgy. If you round out your edges you lose your edge. Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone - profusely. But don’t apologize for who you are ✌🏼💪🏼 3 weeks ago

🎉 It’s that time of the week again!🎉 #TransformationTuesday 👈🏼There is absolutely nothing wrong with my body in the left picture. I was a healthy weight and from just looking at me you’d say that I was a healthy gal. Because it’s national #edawareness week I’d like to remind everyone that eating disorders are not always visible. I was stuck in the vicious cycle known as ‘weekend syndrome’ 🤦🏻‍♀️. I would restrict my food and weigh and calculate everything I put in my body during the week. And come weekend I would be so exhausted starving and deprived that I would just binge on anything I could get my hands on make myself sick and then promise that next Monday will be different❌ 👉🏼Today in class my dance teacher asked us if we were happy with our bodies and how we looked. And it made me so sad to see a number of girls around me shake their heads and mutter how unhappy they were with themselves - purely because I know how much I used to hate my body and abuse it💔. How much I would put myself down before anyone else had the chance to get there first. Of course I still have my days when I don’t feel good about myself or I find something in the mirror to complain about. But I can honestly say that for the first time in the longest time I feel comfortable in my own skin☺️. I am so proud of my body for fully recovering from two major surgeries. I am so proud of myself for being able to eat intuitively and if I do fall back into old ways I’m mentally stronger now to pick myself up and move on✌🏼. Yes there are things I’d like to improve on aesthetically and although there isn’t a massive difference between the two pictures. I feel stronger more resilient and accepting of my body ❤️💪🏼. If you accept and love your flaws no one can use them against you. #edawareness #transformationtuesday 3 weeks ago
