  • Firstly, let me say that I don’t need no cis person or even cis adjacent person in any body/fat positive community telling me as a non binary trans person what I need to do or not to do in order to “love my body”. Save that shit.

Secondly, I don’t need anyone making assumptions about me “perpetuating toxic diet/fitness culture” because you see me posting some vids of me and my kindred working out. If you haven’t genuinely paid enough attention to what I share and unpack on my platform...that’s on you and you’re no different than all the folks who clump you in categories based on outward presentations.

I’m invested in working thru my shit (cause i ain’t perfect) and healing as many areas of my life as I can. The decolonization process is real. But none of us solely hold the key to what that looks like.

Lastly, I’ll leave you with this quote from Han Koehle:
“When I started lifting a lot of folks that I kind of know (but relatively few actual friends) assumed that I was trying to lose weight or launched into trying to do hating-our-bodies-together behavior. I don't get up at 5:30 to hate my body. I get up at 5:30 to connect with it. Like a lot of people who have experienced sexual violence and like a lot of trans people, it's easiest for me to exist as a floating intellect disconnected from any sense of physical reality. It's easiest for me to exist on the internet, as written word only, rather than as a physical presence. Lifting requires me to be mindfully present in my whole body and gives me a structure for experiencing that mindful presence in a safe way. I've only been lifting for a few months but lifting plus therapy has been genuinely transformative.”

Não diz nada sobre o quão livre ela é. 🦋

  • That's just a bridge. 
It used to be a "nothing special" pose for me. 
Yesterday, after 3,5 months of not being able to bend, it became a gift. 
Do we really need to experience a loss, to be grateful for what "always is"?

  • Took a little break from the gram for over a month and it felt SO good. I didn’t think it would affect me as much as it did. I felt more present, more self love, creativity, deeper connection with those around me, and wayyy more productive. January was an insane month and February continues to be...as great as social media is for connection and sharing...it can definitely be a double edged sword for both those things. We’re gonna take it slow from now on 😏

  • What is one thing you can do to keep yourself going when you believe you can't? Read on to find out 👇
⁣
I believe that having someone there with you on the outside is crucial. Because my coach always tells me, we can't see our own blind spots. It doesn't matter how successful you are, how much you have figured out, or even how many clients you have. You simply cannot see your own blind spots.⁣
⁣
Take weight lifting, for example. That is something that I have only been doing for a month. And in the beginning, I kept saying, "I can't". I can't do another push up, I can't push another 10 pounds, I just can't do it.⁣
⁣
And you know what my trainer said to me? He said that the human body is much more capable than what you believe it is, it's all in your head. Just DO it and stop saying that you can't!
⁣
And you know what? I pushed myself farther than I ever have. He was right. In that moment, it clicked.⁣
⁣
I realized that I believed there was NO way my skinny body could push that much weight so, in turn, my brain reacted and made it so that I "couldn't". Why would my brain allow that effort to be exerted if I already knew that it was impossible? AHA!!
⁣
Our minds are great at self protection. This applies to everything. Stop saying you can't. And just do.
⁣⁣
Hit the link in my bio for a free 1-1 call if you are ready to just do it. To live with purpose, find happiness, and manifest everything you could ever want. I can be that voice standing by that doesn't let the BS you tell yourself be the voice that you listen to.

  • Right now I am being called to hibernate. To remove myself from social occasions and social media for a while and go within. Not because something is wrong, but because my body needs me to take some time out for me for a while. 
My mind, my soul, my body needs my focus on it for a while rather then on everyone else. It needs a chance to reconnect to itself, to nature and process the massive amounts of learnings and shifts that have been flooding in since the start of the year. 
My body, my mind, my perspective is all in a process of upgrading and recalibrating and I need to honour this by giving myself the space for these changes to integrate. 
I'm taking a deep breathe this weekend and letting go of the need to know where I am going, letting go of the need to know the next step and letting go of the need to even be able to define who I am.

It feels uncomfortable. My body wants to run, it want to sit down and come up with a plan or book in social events to avoid sitting in this feeling. Instead I will breathe love and compassion deeply throughout my body and ground myself. 
I will allow this feeling to wash through me as it needs to and not as I would like it to. 
I have no idea what I am doing, or who I am anymore and I am making peace with that. 💚💛

  • It is always a wonderful thing to reconnect with long time friends.  Our wedding was the last time we saw each other, so she'd never met Anna.  Anna immediately fell in love with her and keeps asking for more park time with her.  I've enjoyed how our relationship has developed over the many years and the common ground we have.  If you have fellow sisters in Christ like my friend, spend lots of time with them!  I was blessed and encouraged by the time we spent together.

  • We're not giving anything up for our resolution this year, instead, we're aiming to get better at relishing every moment. We've already looked at cooking with new flavours and planning a 'staycation' to experience something new that's close to home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In addition to that, we thought it would be a great idea to use the motivation of a New Year's resolution to make time to reconnect with someone who you've lost touch with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Maybe it's a relative who moved away, an old friend or simply someone you don't get to talk to as often as you'd like, all it takes is a few moments to put pen to paper or to pick up the phone to reach out and reconnect with someone special.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Our hearts sensitivity is such a resource. The ability to hold our experience in a loving space, allowing it to be as it is. And the comfort of compassion that supports us to stay when pain shows up. That allows us to love the truth. And within this space, the pain transforms into a sweet pain, we can see the preciousness and beauty in its unfoldment.

  • My valentine and I met a LONG ass time ago. (See hot guy in photo 1) He says he knew he wanted to date me way back then, and I make fun of how he decided to go about that. However it eventually happened in 2009 (by chance and our brilliant friend @scottwhugo moving to England) we reconnected on Facebook. The rest is ten years of history that has culminated in the best thing that has happened to either of us. (See photo 2) Thank you @brindlechef for always sticking by me. Through horrible times, worse times, and now getting WAY better times. I love you unconditionally always. Thank you for my best friend and bug. We love you dearly. #happyvalentinesday
