33 Weeks and counting

Hey guys,

So I’m not 33 weeks and counting down the days until I get to meet my little princess. I have to tell you, it’s been dam tough! The sickness, the sleepless nights, the back pain, the pelvis pain, everything has been really hard, but I haven’t given up exercising.

No instead I have embraced it more, It’s helped me mentally get through this pregnancy. I say that I have done more exercise but it’s not been without it’s struggles. I know that my motivation has wavered sometimes and I have had to really give myself that mental pep talk. But once at the gym or in the pool, my mood soon changes and I know I am in my happy place.

Which got me thinking …

How many of you are in a job that you don’t particularly enjoy, you go to work to pay the bills and as soon as you enter the door you thank god that the day is over. Putting my hand up right here! It sucks, I want to be coming home and saying to my partner “I’ve had the best day”, I want him to tell me top shut up as I’m blabbing on! I want to enjoy what I do.

So that’s what I’m going to do, I’m going to make a change and actually do something that makes me happy. I want to be mentally happy and motivated everyday and I think that’s the message I want to send to you guys today .. Do what makes you happy. Whether that is training, reading, writing, being in the outdoors, baking, anything, but today I want you to do what makes you happy, because when it all comes down to it, that’s what life is all about.

Have a happy Saturday guys

Stereotype – how can you be beautiful if you’re anything but perfect?

URGHH straight away this title gets my back up. We are surrounded by stereotypes, we have to look a certain way to be beautiful, have a certain body shape to be hot and dress a certain way to be noticed… erm NO!!!

what the actual F!

Unfortunately the media today has us living in a world where so many of us believe that this is true. I mean if you don’t look a little bit like kin Kardashian or follow her every move then are you even worthwhile??

It literally drains me how women feel they have to inject their faces with crap, slap a ton of make up on, have fake hair, fake eyelashes and fake nails to even come close to feeling beautiful.

Ladies, each and every one of you is beautiful in your own unique way. Why on earth do you want to look like these people.

It saddens me greatly that this is how women feel they need to look. We all have our insecurities but the vast majority of them come from the media and social media.

Are you really under the illusion that these women really look like this? Have you never heard of Photoshop?

I remember an article came out a while back showing 2 pictures of Kim Kardashians ass, one was photoshopped to death, the other wasn’t. Guess what … the woman had cellulite just like everyone else, her bum wasn’t perfectly round, it had dimples in it, because that was the real truth. Not some made up photo that we are meant to believe and eventually fantasize about looking like.

You are perfect because you are you. You should be proud of who you are.

I want to promote body confidence amongst women, if you want to lose weight, then do it for you, not because you feel that the only way you will be noticed is if you’re a twig, likewise if you want to dye your hair, do it for you.

If you take one thing away from this post please let it be this

.. BE YOU.

Why try so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?!

This is a sentence that I love and live by ‘Why try so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?’

Today I am not bringing you a post regarding fitness but rather something else that lies deep within my heart.

The media has given women (I speak about women because I am one so can relate) an image of what you should look like, usually it’s a size 8, large ass, lip fillers, long hair and fake eye lashes. Dear god please stop. How is this right??

We are lead to believe that if you do not fall into this category you are inferior, You are not worthy and you are not beautiful. Is it right to have to look a certain way in order to be recognised??

Ladies this makes my blood boil. Every woman is beautiful and my posts and other little businesses I am embarking on are to empower women and encourage them that this image is not the only image, this image is in fact a complete made up Barbie doll that in fact, if you ask any man, with half a brain cell, is not beautiful or attractive.

We are born to be different, embrace your differences, your faults, your inner beauty and shine with it.

Empower one another to embrace who you are and be the people we so long to be.

That’s my thought for the day guys, and with that I’m off to spend time with the family.

Until next time
