"Once we accept our limits, you go beyond them"
Meeting this amazing lady, little over a year ago and seeing how much she has achieved and where she's on her way to, has been amazing! @margofargo1 you are beautiful inside and out and I am so excited and proud to share in your journey❤
I cant believe its only been 4 weeks since we left South Africa and returned to Saudi Arabia. In many ways it feels like we never even left the Kingdom. The memories of our vacation r still fresh in our minds but this year our boys' transition back into life here has been remarkably smooth. They still talk about our Cape Town home and family and friends and our truck but unlike last year, no tears accompany the reminiscing. I am truly thankful for this, it makes my own longing easier to deal with.
Its the end of the work week and day 20 of the Whole30. By now i can say im over it. Thats how i feel about it. I havent given up tho, i just "feel" over it. Besides all the non scale victories i just miss the freedom i exercise in my 80/20 chosen way of eating. If anyone wud have told me, i wud b able to stay away from cheese for 20 days or make tomato gravy with only dates to sweeten it, or happily eat a salad for lunch on more than 2 days consecutively id have laughed at the thought. If anything, this 20 days has taught me a few things about myself i never did know 😊
Growing up in a Cape Malay home, much of our food was served with rice - roti - bread - pasta or some other form of primary starch. Potatoes were a standard in daily meals and lentils - beans or dhals on the menu once a week atleast. I now look back at how different my meals have become over the years and i smile at the growth. Wot started out as a weightloss journey progressed into so much more. Currently, this is more about my overall health than just my weight.
I started this page not only to share recipes but to create an awareness. An awareness of wot it is we put into our bodies which often r reasons for our diseases and illness. I want people to know that we can eat nutritious food and still eat lekker. I see pictures of people already with weight issues stuffing their faces with cakes and delights and i feel so so sad. THAT was me, i was that kid who grew up to bcome an obese adult with diabetes, hypertention and a host of other ailments. Please dont disadvantage your family by allowing these types of things into their lives often. A common saying among our people is "os likes lekker iet"
☀️D I G I T A L detox check in — as my tattoo states “ The Truth Has No Temperature” by the movie The Counselor, it’s neither hot or cold it just is, so why hide it? I’m having serious withdrawal symptoms from social media and I am not afraid to admit it... I’ve taken peeks here and there, but have tried not to be as active as usual. It’s hard in this day and age people and I think most of you can agree with me on this 😊 having said that though, this was just a little check in and I will continue my digital cleanse for a little while longer until I return when I am ready! Happy Thursday ya’ll!💋☀️Xx #all4alli#love#happythursday#overandout
I've been on the receiving end of the millennial shame. The lost generation of people who always want to know why. Mental health days and yoga pants. They want 'meaningful careers'. Can't settle down. Want all of the perks but won't put in the work. Social media focused hippies with no direction in life. Beards and a lack of certainty. Lazy. PC.
We question the status quo and want to understand the thought or emotion behind our actions. We care about feeling happiness and recognize the brain as a vital organ in our overall health - mindfulness and meditation will be our norm. We seek enlightenment and purpose in our lives. We long to leave behind a legacy through our work and be remembered long after we are gone. We aspire to love. Or remain single. It's about choice. We're efficient not lazy. We care about equality and aren't afraid to show it. We groom our bodies to self express and honour our unique personalities. We are searching for our truth, not what we were told to be but who we were born to be. We are new age marketing heroes, our own personal PR agents exchanging stories through social media.
We are the unashamed millennial generation. ✊🏽
