Today I saw my reflection in the window when I was working out and my first thought was wow my shoulders look good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I could look at this picture and choose to see that my arm is still flabby or I can look at this picture and see how defined my shoulders are!!! One of my favorite parts of my body happens to be my shoulders because I can see how much my work has paid off. I can see definition and muscles that I’ve never had before. And you know what my arms are stronger than they’ve ever been even if they still have fat on them! I love how strong my body is! Is it perfect NO! Will it ever be NO! But do I love myself just the way I am YES!!! Choose to find the positive everyday!! Love yourself at every step of your journey!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Buenas noches de Martes valientes✌🏾🐌 como caracoles, poquito a poquito hasta la meta🚧 Hoy os vengo a enseñar mi planner, es personificable y lo compré en Stardivarius por 5 euros💸📒La verdad es que fue la última opción porque me pegué buscando una agenda por todas tiendas del mundo y ninguna me convenció (@charuca, @pizpiretia, @mrwonderful_, @queway, @amazon...) o eran muy caras 💰o no tenían la vista que yo quería 🗺o un estampado sencillo 🎨 asi que hasta que esté segura me quedo con esta. Me organizo la semana a partir del dia de academia 👨🏻🏫👩🏻🏫👩🏼🏫 (en mi caso los jueves por la tarde): nos explican el tema y el día siguiente comienzo a esquematizarme los temas✏🖇🗒 y a memorizarlos🙇♀ (viernes-miércoles). Por las mañanas me cunde más que por las tardes (4h y 3h aprox). Medio día del miércoles y la mañana del jueves la dedico a preparar el tema (lectura y subrayado) de la clase siguiente. A ratos cuando me apetece me dedico a la asignatura de Derecho que tengo este cuatri (todavía no tengo planning para ella)⚖ . Ah por cierto, suelo descansar las tardes del sábado y domingo 🌳🌞💫, por ahora, ya que soy muy #morningperson 🧚♀Soy novata👶🏽 por lo que este planning me sirve ahora que acabo de empezar y que me dedico solo a preparar el test, probablemente aumente el ritmo con los meses. Me dais algun consejo❔ Que os parece❔👂🏼 Ánimo valientes, os mando Millones de besos😘😘😘 #opocompis#opovida#gestionprocesal#tramitacionprocesal#auxiliojudicial#oporutina#papeleriabonita#opositora#oposiciones2019#operaciongestion#studyinspiration#studymotivation#opovalientes
NATURAL TENDENCIES // Since going freelance and having more time to prioritise doing things that inspire me as well as having MUCH more time to rest and recharge, I’ve noticed that my natural tendency as an early bird has re-emerged. To be honest, whilst I’ve long nurtured the habit of practicing yoga first thing in the morning, I’d always get to Friday and feel like I could hardly put one foot in front of the other. No longer needing to burn the candle at both ends to satisfy the demands of work and the urge to maintain some description of ‘a life’, it’s been amazing to notice a more natural cycle of my daily energy re-establish itself. It might seem crazy to some, but I find that I’m much brighter and my yoga cues are much clearer first thing in the morning. Even without having to think about it, I’m much less likely to stumble over my instructions or mix up my right and left. My brain has my back ✌🏼Having said that, I’m still not looking forward to shorter days and dark, cold mornings. Even though I love them, those 7AMs are only going to get harder from here on out 😏 #winteriscoming#bummer#SAD#herewego •
On a completely unrelated note, you’ve got two extra chances to catch me on the mat @moreyoga_ this week:
✨Thurs 12:30 Vinyasa // Old St
✨Fri 12:15 Backbend Flow // Tower Bridge

I have been been feeling a bit overwhelmed as my days have been full of all sort of activities especially trying to do YouTube part-time on top of my full-time job. It definitely became harder when I created a secondary channel following my instinct and my desire to share my experience about living in Australia and how I could help other French people to do the same. Everyday I wake up at 5am, get ready in about 20 minutes and start working on my videos till 7.30am, then I go to work and all my commute is also dedicated to creating for my channel. At night it is similar. Then comes the weekend where I also wake up at 5am, edit for about 4 hours each day, shoot videos for about 1-2 hours and then all the other things related to creating such content - photos, tagging, caption, description. I have so many ideas and I love doing this, but I get a bit overwhelmed and not enough time is dedicated to rest or work on my limiting thoughts which are trying to prevent me to do all of these every single day. So I decided I need to bring back some consciousness to my life and work on my thoughts first, try to chill a bit more as I just do what I can and try to dedicate as much free time as I can on my video but I need to rest my brain a bit. So now every morning I started to write my thoughts and work on my thinking to bring it back to a positive mindset and kind of let go of all the things I am supposed to do to progress on my channel. Sometimes it’s not about getting it done it’s about who’s in the getting - is that this stressed bitter person who can’t find time for anything else or just a relaxed person who trust the timing of life? I find that writing thoughts make you realise that things you feel are so important are not really...life is just about fun and not publishing a video this week is not gonna change much, but feeling super positive about it and confident about the future of my channel makes such a big difference!
I love the things I do, and I can be very passionate about them. I am a very optimistic person and usually in a good mood. Even right after waking up in the morning. I often start singing when I simply feel like it. When I was a student at a boarding school and had to share a room with others, they were sometimes annoyed by my constant good mood I think.
How about you?
Ich mache alle Sachen, die ich mache, mit voller Hingabe. Zudem bin ich an und für sich ein sehr positiv denkender Mensch und meistens guter Laune. Selbst direkt nach dem Aufstehen. Ich fange dann auch ganz oft einfach an zu trällern, weil ich mich danach fühle. Als ich noch Schülerin auf einem Internat war und mir ein Zimmer mit anderen teilte, waren sie hin und wieder ganz schön angenervt von meiner ständigen Euphorie.
Wie tickt ihr denn so?

This program is kicking my butt already and it only officially started yesterday 💪🏼 alternating strength and cardio, apparently I’ll love cardio by the end of this but we’ll see 💁🏻♀️ I’m doing this to prove a point, mainly to myself - but if I can get up at 6am to get in a workout before college and then go to work in the evening; I’m sure anyone can do it! (Side note - these photos were taken in the gym last week but I’ve been doing the program in my living room) Drop me a message if you’d like to learn more and maybe even join me on this journey, I’d love to be your workout buddy!🙌🏼💗 #fitnessjourney2018#newfitnessprogram#earlyriser#morningperson#morningworkouts#getitdone#dancerswholift#girlswholifts
I had 🚫 no structure to my 🌄day or life many years ago. My daily thoughts 🤬 were "same crap, different day." I was an angry person. I had no thoughts of 😊happiness, others, and goals 🏆. I'd wake up when ever. I dreaded the sunlight and welcomed 🌌darkness. I hated hearing 🐦 birds chirp in the morning.
Now, I LOVE 💟waking up early. I think more clearly,💪 have greater clarity, make better decisions, and take more action when I am up early in the morning. I take my morning slow♂🧘, while being MORE productive. 💯 🔥When do you function better? Morning or night?Are you an 🦉owl or 👩 person?
Gym hair don't care 💁🏻♀️
6:15 a.m. and my workout's complete. 💪
While I don't always appreciate the 4:20 wakeup, I sure love starting each day with movement. By making time so early in the morning, I can squeeze in self-care and "me-time" before the day officially begins. ☺️
And that, my friends, is SO important. 🙌
What about you? Are you a fan of early mornings? When do you squeeze in "me-time?"
Day 2 is in the books 💪 15 minutes of lifting was all it took 🔥 but listen, I seriously put off starting. I have a headache and I was just so dang cold. Not everyday is easy to workout.
I make myself do it though because I know how amazing I feel after. If I skip a workout I let it bother me all day. It's amazing because some of the ladies in our accountability group have been saying the same thing!
Life got crazy for some of them and they've been missing workouts, and they were talking about how much it bothered them. That's a good thing! That means they want this 👊
How bad do you want a change?! Doing nothing will get you nothing 💁 pushing it off just delays the process. Why not start now?! Aren't you worth that?! #worthit#mytribe#momswithmuscle
Mornings at home, with a coffee in my hand, lovin’ on my pups..are hands down my favorite time & what I always look the most forward to 💕 Which is STILL weird for me to say. I was a night owl for SO LONG, an early morning for me was 10 AM & a normal night for me was 3 AM. I used to despise mornings, I would LIVE for sleeping in, and anyone who woke me up before 10AM? You were a BRAVE soul. Now? I’m falling asleep at 9 PM and I’m actually disappointed when I sleep in! I feel like I’ve wasted my day away, and waking up before the world is awake..before the sun is out..filling my mind with positivity & gratitude and my body with coffee (duh..), there’s nothing else like it ☀️ It’s always so crazy to look back and see how different today looks from 3-5 years ago, isn’t it? #malliethedog
Yes I'm that crazy lady working out in her living room before the sun comes up! •
Double workouts because why not?!?! 💪Both workouts together were under an hour. I used to spend hours on the treadmill and never see results, bored and over it. My at home workouts are actually fun and getting me towards my goals!🏠 •
There's actually a lot of us 😂 crushing our workouts every day, keeping eachother accountable, and living our healthiest lives. Ready to join us? Message me already girl!
Day 23: #mindfuloctober 🌿 I am a morning person. Not that getting out of bed is easy or the cold winter mornings don’t make it hard, but I love the sunrise. ☀️ Waking up, lighting candles, starting my coffee, stretching, and spending time with my journal while the sun comes up... is a magical experience for me. It’s the difference in a good day and an average day. If I oversleep or miss my quiet time before rushing out the door... I feel in complete disarray. 😭 I’ve also found that I feel most creative, energized, and joyful in the morning... therefore, spending an extra hour alone and quiet... helps preserve those feelings. So, just bc you struggle to get out of bed... doesn’t mean you aren’t a morning person. Get up, create a ritual, and see that you feed your soul. You too may be surprised what a good sunrise will do for your day! 🙏🏻🧘♀️ Happy Tuesday! 🌿🌿 #happiness#loveyourself#joycomesinthemorning#findinglove#findingjoy#sunrise#coffeetime#arkansassunrise#morningperson#magical#bohohome#selfcare#selflove#bekind
2018, the year I discovered I *am* a morning person! 45 minute jogette (that means plenty of walking - well one of my dogs is 13, she doesn’t take kindly to rushing 😉) and home before the sun is up - awake and ready for a day at work. I am still amazed by how much I love this - but with these views, who wouldn’t?! (Yes, the pictures are in reverse order...)
