• A challenge 🙈🍭• My teacher gave me these candy bars today, I panicked a little bit and I’m not really sure what to do with it. Most of the time, when someone gave me candy, I put it in my bag and threw it away at home. Right now I’m still freaking out, this is a serious challenge for me. But I’m more than this ED! Let’s do this... 💪🏻🍫🍩 #Recovery #WeCanDoThis #StayStrong #BeatingED
Before starting regular yoga practice I thought I'm pretty good at moving my body through space, but soon I realised I lacked some important ranges of motion as well as strength in those far ranges of motion.
Now I feel this practice has brought me another level of enjoyment to physical activity. Where I can be more free in my Jiu-Jitsu game or able to be more spontaneous with physical play (like deciding to jump on a wall to do some climbing while being being out for a dinner).

How Stressful Can Excessive Running Be On Your Body? 🤔🏃🏾♂️🏃🏾♀️
Of all the movement patterns the human body is capable of doing... walking, jogging & running is by far the most complex one 😱
Some say that “running is just a small amount of stress added to the body over a long period of time...” When In fact, it’s actually quite the opposite. 😳
With every single step during your run, your body has to deal with approx. 2.5-3 times its body weight!! 😱😱
So when you’re standing on both legs, half of your weight is distributed through each leg.
However, when you stand on one leg, ALL your body weight is now distributed through one leg (obviously).
Now take a barbell that’s approx. 150% of your body weight and add that to your shoulders.... 😳
If you weigh 70kg, your body actually undergoes 175kg of total force!!! 😱😱😱
That’s roughly how much stress your bones, tendons, muscles and ligaments go through every time you take a stride when running 😳
See, running places A LOT of stress on the body (a lot more than what you think), so if you don’t have the appropriate mobility, strength, flexibility and prerequisites to handle that type of load repetitively, then injury is bound to happen... It’s only a matter of time ⏰☹️
Does this mean stop running all together? 🙅🏾♂️ NO! Absolutely not! 💪🏾
All we’re highlighting is how strenuous a basic activity like “running/jogging” can be, so ALWAYS be sure to warm-up properly, mobilise your joints and stretch!! 🙏🏾
After all, your ultimate goal should be to stay healthy and fit for the remainder of your life 💜 Nobody wants to be using walking sticks or getting knee replacements way before their time (or at all)! 💛
Remember, Always Train Hard. But Always Train Smarter. 🧠 Fitness is a lifestyle and is about the long game, not short term gains 😊💜💛🙏🏾

C H R O N I C F A T I G U E
Also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) is a complex condition that causes persistent, debilitating fatigue for more than 6 months that is not caused by a known medical condition.
Other symptoms of CFS include reduced concentration and short term memory, sore throat, tender or enlarged lymph nodes, muscle and/or joint pain without swelling, headaches, unrefreshing sleep and malaise after exertion.
The cause is not fully known or understood. Suggested causes include, infection, inflammation, mitochondrial dysfunction, neuroendocrine abnormalities, genetics, environmental factors and nutrient deficiencies.
Naturopathy has so many tools to assist in the management of this debilitating condition and fatigue in general. I'll be back in Clinic next year on Wednesdays and Friday mornings :) call 1300 859 785 to book in!
Ao usar o rolo de espuma é importante rolar lentamente sobre um grupo muscular, até onde um ponto sensível está localizado, o que provavelmente indica a presença de um ponto de gatilho. Uma vez que o ponto sensível foi localizado, a pressão contínua sobre esse ponto deve acontecer até que a dor tenha diminuído em cerca de 75% (Clark et al. 2014).
When using the foam roller it is important to roll slowly over a muscle group, as far as a sensitive spot is located, which probably indicates the presence of a trigger point. Once the sensitive spot has been located, the continuous pressure on this point must occur until the pain has decreased by about 75% (Clark et al., 2014). #personaltrainer #personaltraining #recovery #autoliberacaomiofascial #myofascialrelease
can‘t wait to prepare the next one 🖤
I have been feeling really vulnerable for the past few days, Wednesday night I had an MRI scan and long story short, I ended up having a panic attack and screaming at the radiographer because he looked like my ex abuser. I forget how vulnerable the thought of him makes me feel.
I managed to get my MRI scan done and my daughter came out of nursery yesterday with this get well soon card she made me with the nursery staff ❤️
I long for the day that nursery/schools do this for mental health though ❤️
🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 Took a month break from posting but I’m back✌️. Finally found the right medication after a long road of trying and testing and things that felt like they could never get better did.
Looking forward to sharing all the positive things for once✨
Instagram projection 👉 real life reality (swipe right!) 💁♀️
Most of the pictures I post look like the one on the left, but recently I have been having a lot more days like the one on the right. That’s not a sob story; it’s just real life ✌️
We all have daily struggles and demons;
some of them you can see, some of them you can’t. There’s been a lot of criticism of Instagram for projecting a too-glossy distortion of real life; but with each day that I share more openly about menstrual cycles and good period health, I see the enormous capacity it has to heal and to connect ❤️
For me, one of the most profound and unexpected benefits of getting to know my cycle was learning to love and respect my own self and body more. When you truly appreciate what your body can do for you, and you understand how that is affected by the love you put into it, you start to give yourself a bit of a break 💆♀️
With all my posts I want to encourage you to take the time to get to know your body and to love and appreciate what it can do for you when you listen to it. Learning that good period health is a vital sign of good overall health is a first step towards that 💕
Yesterday I was in hospital to fix an ongoing issue that I now hope to be on the mend with. It isn’t period-related, but it is a reminder that recovery is a journey and that the overnight transformations we see on social media rarely reflect the reality of the process. I want to be honest with you guys about my journey 🙂
Thank you for helping me to heal by sharing what I have learnt about menstrual cycles. It is a huge passion of mine and it brings me such joy to be able to share it with you. I hope that together we can help others by normalising the conversation around good menstrual health 👌
Happy Friday everyone, glossy #filter
or not 😘
Ps. Who knew hospital vegan food could be so tasty? There were no crumbs left on my plate 😋

When there is still some definition and you don't know how 🤷🏻
No but for reals, I am lucky - bc I like some definition, if you don't, that's okay too, do you 💁🏻 - when it comes to my genes. I build muscle quickly and hold on to it for ages, even tho I wouldn't do anything.
I notice over and over again that I put a lot of value on that..which really isn't what I preach. I preach self love. Love every damn roll and every bit of cellulite you have, every scar and every cell you have. Obviously this is a ride, it is life - things don't always work the way we want it to. It's always trial and error. Action and reaction.
Some days we will love ourselves and some we won't. But the days we love ourselves become more frequently and the days we don't become less.
That's the goal. More good than bad days. But even the bad days are part of the goal. Without them we wouldn't be able to learn to value our bodies, they are the opportunity to change and work on our mindsets.
Don't ever give up on that, and if you do, you start over again..and again. It is never too late. You got time. Don't hurry. Listen, learn and love ♥
Here are some salads I have had throughout the week 😌☺️
I also tried having blueberries with my salad and it tastes amazing !! Today was my second time adding them and all I can say is that you should definitely should try it!😋 also I had two exams today 📝 and all I can say is I’m so happy they are over! I just have one more assignment due next week on Tuesday and then I have finished school for the year !🙃 I hope everyone feels they went well with their exams and are looking after themselves as it can be super stressful and take up a lot of your time! Treat yourself !😌💛
My demons are preparing for a battle to end the war that’s been raging in the war zone that is my silent screaming mind. I can hear their battle cries, sprouting lies, trying to take me down before I have a chance to strike.
Do they not know I’m sick of feeling this way? That I’m bored of starving myself to death? That I’m over all the bullshit my demons bring? Do they believe they can actually win?
I’ve been struggling since my life went sideways at the end of the May. I relapsed & never really stopped. I’ve been beating myself up, been feeling worthless & the least deserving Space Elf to have roamed the planet, even was toyed with the idea to take serious measures to try & stop these feelings.
I refuse to be defeated, I refuse to lose when I still have a lot more in me & there’s so much left within this world I’m yet to experience.
I’ve been struggling more than I’ve been open about & I know I need to work on my communication skills so that I can help myself.
I’m going back to seek help within the mental health system & not give up the fight despite Jerseys system has failed me so many times.
I’m sorry to those that have been affected as a result of my head over the last few years. I know I’ve hurt some people & I can’t help but feel guilty to them, but thank you to all those who have stood by my side through thick & thin, I don’t have the words to say how grateful I am.
I will live the life I was destined to live at my full potential & that means not dying as result of anorexia.
I’m tired of false hope & brokenness but I will be stronger & happier with myself.
I won’t just survive, I’ll fucking thrive!
