Something I am learning is how to love myself, accept myself and be at peace with where I am in my journey. There is no one I can, or should, compare myself to. I can learn from absolutely anyone and I will get so much more out of this Earthly experience if I stay open to this concept 💛 ~ T

A coach is not someone you go to to get fixed. A coach is someone who helps you to find the knowledge, the mindset, the power and the wisdom within yourself, for your own ability to heal yourself.
Think about food all the time?
Trying to be good and then only end up binging like crazy at night time?
Restriction of food makes out body and mind fixate on food all the time. It is an instinct. Our body just wants to survive.
So, when we eventually give in when there is that moment when you just want to rest and relax, there is this natural instinct to overeat. The mind doesn't know when it is going to get for next time. So it wants to get as much as it can fast.
So, instead of understanding that it is totally normal reaction of starvation, most people see it as "evidence" that they have weak will - power and and feel bad and guilty again.
So, the binge-and-restrcit cycle begins again. Most even believe that they are addicted to food.
BTW- it is misguided information. There is no food addiction. While you can survive without using drugs such as alcohol, cigarettes, etc, you can't survive without food.
We can't treat distorted relationship with food like we that drug addiction.
All, we need to do is to give ourselves the permission to eat ALL foods - even if you have fear you will end up eating it all. At some point, your mind will understand that you are ok.
Another aspect to healing is looking at the emotional side. Understanding what pain and emotion are we trying to "treat" with food.

Made this body scrub this morning just for fun before work. My skin feels suprisingly silky after it 😯
And of course I had to include today's @mo_me.ie
card to make it look pretty, as well as smell pretty! 😉

There are some days when I just do not care. The house is messy, the sink is full of dirty dishes, laundry needs to be done, it's 2:30pm, I'm still in bed and I. Just. Don't. Care. I know I should get up, I know I should do something so I feel better because laying in bed with my mind ticking over and over is the worst place for me to be & if I get up I won't feel so ashamed for being "lazy" again. The thing is, I'm not lazy. I actually want to do things, I want to be productive & to accomplish something. If you ask anybody who knows me, they will tell you that I'm the friend who will do their dishes for them, who bakes them cupcakes, brownies & birthday cakes & cooks dinner for them. I just have absolutely no energy some days. And that isn't caused by laziness. It is very hard for some people to understand that some days it feels impossible to get out of bed, no matter how motivated you are or how inspired you feel. Never assume you know the reasons behind a persons behaviour. We only see what someone allows us to see, there is always so much more buried underneath the surface 💕#mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthconfessions #thisisme #selflovejourney #badhairdontcare #thinkbeforeyoujudge

Self-love 🖤 It is the first step towards healing those old wounds inside...
Me and my strong-women friends talked about the self-love journey tonight - setting boundaries, choosing to make friends with ourselves, the discomfort of healing and becoming the women we're meant to be... and when someone mentioned being grateful for what we have as a means for taking care of our emotional selves, it made me feel pleased that I had challenged myself to a month of daily gratitude list, as I'm going through some tough stuff. So, here's day 6 of gratitude:
• The women who taught me how to grocery shop and pack lunches
• The women who taught me to fuck patriarchal, traditional conditioning and stop slut-shaming myself
• Everyone who recognized the feminism in my art, before I realized that I was a feminist (and that "feminist" was not a shameful word, or thing to be)
• The women who taught me how to trust other women, and myself, and who are now teaching me how to be vulnerable with my partner, who is absolutely trustworthy
• The women who continue to teach me how to be gentle with myself and prioritize my mental health (and laugh at that shit when I can, because it's just the way it is)
• The bond of strong, positive, uplifting female friendships
• Friends who make me laugh until I'm wheezing for breath
• A patient, loving, communicative, emotionally intelligent (AND incredibly beautiful) partner
Today's success: wore real shoes (those who know, know) and made an appointment to meet with a new doctor to talk about solutions for the emotional challenges I'm having ❤️

It's a huge shame we don't tend to like change because it's such a natural part of life!
When you are faced with it, you will cope a little easier if you approach it with a sense of hope and determination that this will be the best thing that ever happened to you 😘🖤
Morning stretching interrupted by this little one 💕 .
My heart was so overly filled with #gratitude
in this moment. ⭐
When I was a kid (3 years old) I got a little dog, her name was Feleene. We were so inseprable. She was my very best friend .
As I grew up and became a young teenager, I started spending less and less time with her. I was consumed in my own world of growing up and trying to figure out what this life thing was all about. (She had to stay outside when we moved to our new house.💔) .
Years went by and she continued to love me unconditionally, through all my phases and with the lack of attention I was giving her .
One day, when I was 16 years old, we had to rush her to the vet. She was sick .
I still remember her face and the way she looked at me, with so much love, while she was on my lap in the car. 💔 .
On that day I had to say goodbye to my childhood friend. My whole heart felt like it was ripped out of me that day. 💔 .
We had been through so much together .
She helped me through so much of the pain I experienced in my childhood .
For years I was filled with guilt around how I had abandonded her and took her for granted .
Only recently did I fully allow myself to let go of that guilt and sadness related to her.
And in doing so, I opened up a space for a new little being to fill .
Here I am. Snuggling Mika 💕
The first time in 7 years that I have been open to having such a special bond with a doggy again .
And my heart is exploding with gratitude ⭐💕⭐
I get nervous posting progress pictures of myself as I’m not where I FEEL I should be in my health and fitness journey. But it’s progress and I’m pretty happy so far with the little changes my body has had over the last 3 months. The picture on the left was in June 2018 and exactly 3 months later, is the picture on the right (which was from a couple days ago).
It’s not a significant change but I feel stronger and definitely more sore! 💪🏼
I'M LEAVING BALI NEXT WEEK! 😆😆😆
As you guys know, my #spiritualnomad
trip to India has changed me a lot! And now I'm craving for more. I want more growth, new experience, new things to learn, and meeting new amazing people throughout my trip. I'll start with Singapore -> KL -> Singapore -> Jakarta (hello, Jakartans! see you soon!) -> Thailand by January 2019 -> and finally, Bali again by March 2019.
I won't have a home base for 6 months or so, but I'm not scared anymore. In my meditation with Lord Shiva back in Rishikesh, I was told that I thrive in uncertainty and chaos. And it made me grateful for all the chaotic experience in my life, like my childhood or my abuse history, for instance. Glad to know that everything I've been through in life is not for nothing. 😊
If you're in Bali and you'd like an in-person reading, hit me up before 24th September! (this date is my birthday, and I do not wish to do any work during this day hahaha) But if you're in any other countries/cities that I mentioned above, hit me up too! It'll be nice to meet some locals for a cuppa coffee or a day out! 🌸🌸
Here's to my new, chaotic, little big adventure! 🌟🌊🌴
Again, I hesitate to write this down. I used to think vulnerability made me weak. But, we are all just trying to live our best lives and learn from each other, aren't we?
That wasn't actually the case for me always. As so many others, we struggle with our minds. For me, I was a very negative person. I really was just trying to make it through each day. In fact, I look back at my posts from years ago and don't recognize that person. Here's the thing, I hated myself. I never said it aloud, but I did. I didn't like the way I treated people. I hated my job, the way I looked, my financial situation. It was all my fault, yet I didn't do anything to fix it. I pretended everything was fine and worked to make everything look perfect on the outside. But, I just stayed in that ugly hole and punished myself by cutting and drinking way too much. That large scar on my arm, embarrassingly enough, is a reminder of that time, the time I hated myself.
I can't believe I actually just wrote that for everyone to read.
Now, I have this opportunity to lift others up. I can use social media for good, and positivity. I would have never figured that out without this makeup company. I was working with another company the time I joined. Honestly, I just wanted a discount on a crap ton of makeup- this girl was BROKE!! But, now it has evolved into so much more. Why do I keep going? Because if makeup is going to make someone feel good and confident for that moment, you better believe I'm going to help get some of that makeup on her friggin' face. If doing that, or posting something positive is going to help someone get through their day, change the way they think, or hate themselves less, I'm going to do that my friends.
I'm still on my self love journey too. I have been saved. I just needed to find myself and appreciate me for exactly who I am, and am working on it daily. I hope you do too. 💜
🏆Which one is the REAL win?
In the picture on the right it was 2010, when the #npcbikini
division was fresh to the scene, I was honored to place top 5 in my first national level competition. It was a huge accomplishment, and one would think that I was at my “peak” of healthy....
🙅🏻♀️ I may have been in lean shape, or what some would consider “competition ready” on the outside, but the truth was, I was at my unhealthiest.
All I could do was obsess over food. Every bite was counted, measured weighed and controlled. I was also completely involved in details like the caps of my shoulders being more rounded (it adds an aesthetic to women in the bodybuilding realm to add an illusion of curves), or my day would be ruled with compulsive thoughts like “Did I have abs???”.....My thoughts were completely consumed with my external shape....
I was in my own personal prison of hell. 💗
The picture on the left is from this morning, and I may not be “competition ready”, but I am by far at my most healthy with my mental health. I’m no longer eating a scarily small amount of calories or nutrients, nor am I slaving away on a cardio machine. I’m also not completely obsessed with food, nor am I constantly picking apart my body to see what needs some work. 🌈
The me now is definitely the healthiest I’ve ever been, and that’s because my mental health is the main aspect of my health that I allow myself to be meticulous about. 🙃
Don’t get fooled by thinking your health is only based on the outside. Your true health is so dependent on your mental health, and your outside shape gets to flourish because of it.
Magic is literally abound ✨⚡️
𝐒𝐲𝐧𝐜𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐢𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠
Yet when we attune our energies to the presence of Love we become aware of how interconnected our lives are. How orchestrated our lives are if only we are willing to be 𝙂𝙪𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙙 ⚡️
Here are some #tips
to get in the flow of SYNCHRONICITY ⚡️Meditation - 15 minutes at least everyday. The more you sit, the more flow you will experience.
⚡️Listen to the subtle voice of your soul - she speaks through subtle cues of the body, and whispers in your ear which way to go.
⚡️Follow flow vs resistance - you all know what I’m talking about. When it’s right it’s light, when it’s not it’s TIGHT. Follow the ease - follow the breathe - this is your guiding system for alchemy & major manifestation.
✨ Follow your JOY - do what you love, let yourself be inspired - all good things come from an inspired soul ❤️
Whoops - shared on FB earlier but not IG 🤷♀️ #mombrain
Day 9 of 21: Upper Body 🏋️♀️ One of our bootcampers posted in our group today that these 30 minute at-home workouts are a "single mom life saver!" At first, I was like YASSS 👏👏👏 And then it hit me. I am a single mom - again. But its NOTHING like before. Because I got over myself and tried something new, I am a HEALTHY mom. Physically and mentally. ⏪Last time, I was recovering from a 5 year verbally abusive relationship. I was recovering from a (noncancerous) brain tumor that caused weight gain and lethargy. I was so insecure in myself I wouldn't even go to a gas station without a full face of makeup and full outfit. I was chasing any and every "quick fix" weight loss trick I could find. ⏩This time, I am fueling my body with good food, I am working out daily from home, setting a better example for my daughter, I am leaning into my fitfam community when times get hard (because single parenting IS HARD), and I am showing up to life EVERY DAY.
The only way for life to get better is for YOU to get better. I have ALL the ❤ for my single mamas and my heart EXPLODES for the ones joining me as a community to care for ourselves in order to be our best for our babes.
Drop a ❤💙💚💜 if you are a single mama or tag a single mama who needs a reminder what shes capable of!

What do you feel or Invision while looking at this photo? °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Before taking this, I had a feeling of no limits. Because at the time or even the moment to be specific I felt limited to what I could do. Being a mama & on a self-love journey there has been many restrictions. Whether it was because of a tantrum, or self-doubt I wasn't able to do what I wanted to do. At least thats what I convinced myself. Back to the photo, I walked to that spot I stood at and saw what the universe wanted me to see. There's a road and I'm on the road because I have a destination. That road had grown before my eyes but once it stopped and made a curve so did I. I couldn't see where it was going so I pulled over and scratched my head. "What now"? I'm unsure about what I need to do because I wanted to see it before my eyes, and have the big picture always in front of me. The fear kicked in and because I couldn't see what was ahead I wanted to turn back because I didn't want to take a chance. I've taken many chances without seeing what was ahead and that led me on the path I'm on now. But... Where would I have been if I had turned around before and stayed where I could see everything? Nothing would have changed. So that sign showed me to take a rest and gathering my thoughts and the road called me to keep driving. The universe whispered to me that even if you're afraid you have to keep going because you want to end up in your destination. Sometimes we have to do things we've never done before like get out the car and walk around or drive around that curve because no curve is the same so you must go. What's around the corner will be shown to you but first, turn that corner😊
Just in case you forgot.. you are an incredible human being...don’t let anyone ever take that from you!
Hi to all my new friends! 👋🏻
I see a lot of new faces here and thought I would take a second to introduce myself! So here is a little “Get to know me” aka jumble of random things 🤸🏻♀️
•My name is Taryn and I am super addicted to coffee, makeup, shopping and dry shampoo. Not necessarily in that order.
•I am what I call a self hate survivor and have been in recovery for almost 2 years now. Some days are still a struggle but I have come a long way.
•Accessories, bags, purses and shoes are my favorite items to shop for... because they mostly always fit even if I gain or lose 10 lbs 😂
• I “try” to follow a ketogenic lifestyle because it makes me feel good.
•I am a momma to an adorable #threenager
Lucas, wife to AJ and we have 3 cats, a pup (Rudy) and a fish.
•I love football and am a #detroitlionsfan
basically, I am a glutton for punishment.
•I started my own business almost two years ago and it has helped make me into the best version of myself.🙌🏻
•I get to empower women with self care and help them feel confident and beautiful everyday. I was one of the women who never felt that way so I love being able to give that gift to others.
•See that stack of rings on my finger? I earned those from my business. For leading a team of 220 babes that are helping women and killing it!
•I have taught myself how to do makeup. Two years ago I barely wore any. 😬 I hated the mess and having to reapply.
•I am terrified of sidewalk grates and clowns... for obvious reasons.
•it is impossible for me to pass a fluffy animal and not want to pet it. 🤗
• I wanna be #joannagaines
when I grow up but with a lot less children. 😂
Okay that’s it for now, if you read this far you get a high five and 2 gold stars! ⭐️ lol!
I love making new friends and am totally open to collaborating with some like minded peeps!
Please, reach out say Hi! 🤗
Face: color correcting tinted moisturizer (medium)
Cheeks: chocolate cherry blush and she’ll glitter
Lips: first love, goddess and praline rose LipSense w/ matte gloss
Eyes: snow, candlelight, shell glitter and onyx shadowsense. Black Lashsense mascara.
As my mama always told me and it means so much to me that I carry it with me in tattoo form -
“Turn your face to the sun
and the shadows fall behind you.” ✨
comes over and acts as your personal Jonathan, giving you that fresh blow out and making sure you follow post-surgical shoulder precautions. 💁🏼♀️
Post-op day 4 and feeling pretty sore from where my surgeon had to scrape/cauterize the capsules but otherwise doing well. So far things that have improved: energy/brain fog, gingivitis (so wild- but it makes sense since it’s inflammation leaving the body), tension in my muscles, and I haven’t had a migraine since surgery. 🤞 It seems my gut is going to be more stubborn as I had a pelvic/urinary flare-up yesterday, but I’m tying to trust the process and be patient with my body. Hopefully I will get these stupid drains out tomorrow so then I can at least do a little walking!
Other feats: MINDSET SHIFTS. I was terrified to see my post-surgical boobs because they can be pretty deformed at first. After getting my implants I broke down and remember thinking, “did I make a mistake? Do they look okay? Should I have gone bigger?” This time I just tore off the band-aid (literally and figuratively) and thought, “hey- not bad!!” 😂 They’re certainly not perfect and they’ll take some time to fill in but they’re natural and they’re MINE. I’m sure the emotions will come, but as of now, I’m just thankful about the prospect of getting my health and range of motion back and being able to return to all my former hobbies without restrictions. 🧘🏻♀️🙌🏻
