: Let me take a cute photo of you
Me: wait I need to check my boobs
😂😂😂 When I initially looked at the second photo I thought... Aw man I look so tired in this photo... I know I’ll add a nice filter maybe adjust the lighting! But recently I have been inspired by @makeupfairypro
Yes it is lovely to post pretty photos of myself looking my best but it’s also nice to show my true self! I, honestly, am not the best for posing for photos. I don’t know my “best light” and I don’t have a “good side”. I only started smiling in photos since getting Invisalign!

Being confident to sit in your own skin naked is a blessing that some take for granted.
My main goal when I got into fitness was to feel confident naked. I was a “never-nude” and felt so uncomfortable in my own skin. As I grew older I lost the sass I had growing up and let insecurities creep in. We see picture perfection on social media which feeds these insecurities. Telling us that fat, cellulite, stretch marks, wrinkles, grey hair... all the natural aspects of an aging human, are ugly and wrong!
Well Fuck That🖕🏼
Yes I work out in the gym and eat a pretty healthy, balanced diet (bar the creme egg I scoffed today 😂) but there are some things I cannot prevent!
I am not going to hide behind filters to mask my true self☠️
I am beautiful and so are you! So be confident stupid!

I made a resolution for 2019 to find myself and my happiness! In doing so I almost completely lost myself.
But finally I have found a path which may not be taking me back to previous self but to a new more aware self. Every day I remind myself that my life is my own. I don’t live it for others. This has been my struggle. I found I was going through life trying to make everyone around me happy.
I still want bring positivity to others but not at the risk of losing my path.

I go to the gym and always have gone to the gym not for the physical benefits but for how it effects me mentally. It is the one place that my overactive brain finds rest.
One thing I have learnt is that, no matter how much we would like to, we can not escape reality and life’s problems. We have to deal with them face on, not ignore them in hopes that they will disappear.
Putting on a brave face is one thing but wearing a mask of happiness will eventually drop!
In the gym my thoughts become clearer, my focus becomes stronger and my problems become lighter.
This is my therapy and nobody can take my future or my happiness from me.💪🏼🖕🏼

Last day of 36!
My thirties have taught me...
▪️It is amazing to be independent but it is also ok to let people in. ▪️To love yourself does not come naturally and you have to work on it every day.
▪️Money does not equate to happiness or satisfaction, doing what you are passionate about is a step in the right direction.
▪️Just because you have not been successful does not mean that you have failed.
▪️It’s never too late to fall in love, with your soul mate, a friend or dog! I have done all 3! ▪️There is always room for change, improvement and evolvement.
▪️You cannot control how people feel about you but you can control how you react to those feelings.

Last night my amazing friend @danni_ylb
managed to surprise me with a birthday meal to remember. She spent months planning it, contacting friends and family. With the help of the hubs @lex_fitness
they successfully blew me away!🎊
With a minion and orange theme and surrounded by some of my favorite people I enjoyed delicious food and cocktails and an amazing donut cake from @planet_doughnut
Thank you @danni_ylb
for making me feel so special.
My actual birthday is on Wednesday and I will be spending it with the love of my life @lex_fitness
the way it is meant to be... eating cake😘❤️

YES I HAVE CELLULITE!
I also have elbows, earlobes and pretty good triceps!
This is a completely unedited screen-grab from my latest YouTube video (link in my bio @laineybopster
Why have we been conditioned ourselves to think that parts of our bodies are ugly? Whether it is cellulite, stretch marks, wrinkles or saggy skin? None of these things are ugly until you make them! I’m not against trying to improve my body or giving into the latest anti aging treatment. However I think it is one thing to try and look your best and it is quite another to be disgusted by what is completely normal and natural!
Can we just stop labeling things as ugly and hating ourselves and get on with life!
