#latepost over the weekend I took advantage and went outback to my patio and got such a sweat from doing some floor workouts outdoors. It was great. .
Just to note. I do not have an ankle injury or else I wouldn't be doing this move. But I felt my hamstrings!. :)
When darkness hides the light and sadness comes crashing in like waves on the shore, learn to appreciate the beauty of the journey. When clouds cover the sun, remember that nothing lasts forever and one day the sun will shine in all its glory again. When the promises you know so clearly in your head don't settle in your heart, focus on them and commit them to memory so that they are there to encourage you even if you don't believe it. When you feel cut off by the sea and stranded alone, remind yourself that you are loved and reach out to someone you love. When all you see is the storm getting stronger and your fears are tightening in your chest, take a moment to refocus on your goals and have faith to walk on the water. When you feel far from God and no longer believe in Him, try and connect again even if it feels forced. When you don't believe that life grows in this much rain, remind yourself of the rare and precious sealife that still flourishes in the depths of the deepest ocean. When you no longer want to be here and want to hide in the harbour, remember that a boat may be safe from wind and storm in the harbour but that is not where boats are meant to be. When the sea pulls you under, learn to float and embrace the waves. When the sadness is overwhelming and you can no longer see the surface, know that there is life again and one day you will see it. When the sea calls you and the only place you want to be is on the beach, focus on the positives of where you are and who you are with. When the waves are high, that may be the best conditions for surfing. The sadness may be pulling you under like a rip tide. The fear may surround you like a cast ocean. The clouds may hide the sun. The waves may make you numb with coldness. But life can still be good. The waves will die down and the tide will change and take the clouds with it and bring you the sunshine. Life will be okay again. But for now, learn to surf 😭❤️🌫️🌊
You are loved, even when you feel unworthy of love. You are loved, even when you feel lonely. You are loved, even when your world is crashing down and everything is going wrong. You are loved, even when people don't tell you or even show you. You are loved, even when you are angry. You are loved, even when you think you are hard to love. You are loved, even when you feel weak.you are loved, even when you can see your best friends becoming closer with other people. You are loved, even when you fail. You are loved, even when you mess up. You are loved, even when you don't know what to do in life. You are loved, even when you feel ignored. You are loved, even when you feel ugly. You are loved, even when your mental illness tells you otherwise. You are loved, even when you feel invisible. You are loved, even when you are relapsing. You are loved, even when you are recovering. You are loved, even when other people seem better and more important than you. You are loved just the way you are. You don't have to do anything to deserve love. You deserved to be loved at your best, at your worst and all the average times in between. You are so loved. Please never ever forget that. ❤️❤️
Dinner tonight was a peanut butter sandwich with beans and salad 💖 sorry I didn’t post my afternoon snack but I had a fruit pastilles ice lolly in the park with my dad 😊 I hope you have all had a good day today and if not then tomorrow is a new week and a perfect chance to start afresh 💚
You can do this. I believe in you and I'm proud of the little steps that you take. When life seems unbearable, remember why you've held on for so long. Remember why you are still here and choosing to look read this, surely that means there's a tiny bit of courage and hope left in you. Stay strong and message me if you need ❤️
It's okay to take time off for your mental health. If you had a migraine or a sickness bug or something like that then you wouldn't think twice about being off. So why would you not take time off if you are depressed or anxious?! Your brain can still get sick and you need look after that too ❤️❤️
Dinner a little while ago was a peanut butter sandwich with beans and salad 💖 I’ve just been putting together a little bedside table for my new bedroom 😊 I bought it today along with a touch lamp, I’ve always wanted a touch lamp so I’m stupidly excited 😆
Maybe healthy is a good thing. Maybe healthy doesn't mean fat. Maybe healthy doesn't mean you failed. Maybe healthy means you won the fight or are learning to fight back. Maybe healthy means you've got your personality that everyone loved back. Maybe healthy means being able to join in with friendships and go out to a coffee shop and order something other than tap water. Maybe healthy means you're not just surviving but you're thriving. Maybe healthy and full aren't bad words or bad things to be. Maybe they mean that you are able to eat a delicious meal without guilt or behaviors. Maybe being healthy means you are willing to challenge yourself. Maybe healthy means you are regaining control. Maybe healthy means seeing photos of yourself at a lower weight and not being triggered. But gladly recognising you aren't like that anymore. Maybe healthy doesn't mean fat but it means happy. Maybe healthy is a good thing
Just thoughts after some challenging comments
You can start again each morning. You can forget about the pain of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow and focus on today. Choose to appreciate the positive things today. Choose to help others. Choose to be kind. Today I will choose to be happy. Will you join me? ❤️
Early dinner tonight of vegan cheese spread sandwich with beans and salad 👌🏻 I’m back at home from house sitting at my friends now which is a little bit difficult for me but at least I’m in my new room! 🤔
"Nobody deserves to be forgotten
Nobody deserves to fade away
No one should come and go.
And have no one know that he was ever even here
No one deserves to disappear.
Even if you've always been that barely-in-the-background kind of guy
You still matter
Even if you're someone who can't escape the feeling
That the world's past you by
You still matter
If you never get round to doing some remarkable thing
That doesn't mean you aren't worth remembering
Think of the people who need to know.
So you need to show them (I need to show them)
That no one deserves to be forgotten
Nobody should flicker out or have any doubt that it matters that they are here." ~Disappear, Dear Evan Hansen
I currently love these lyrics. You deserve to be here and not be forgotten. You still matter, despite what you do or what you don't do. You are valued and need to stay here. Please hold on just a little longer. Message me if you need to talk or rant. I love you all and I'm so proud of you ❤️❤️❤️
Like I mentioned recently....the chair cardio seemed crazy but I look forward to my cardio time,even in the boot. While I do miss my usual running cardio, I am liking the strength I see just from doing simple moves in my hips, core, and arms.
Just goes to show you that healing can be fun😁.
Moves from @carolinejordanfitness chair cardio. See some moves in action on my story. 😁
I have learned that there are empowering questions and disempowering questions. Empowering questions are things like... What am I really feeling? What is that feeling trying to tell me, do for me, teach me? What action I can take for myself? What can I do to nurture myself? How can I make this work for me? What is a different way I can look at this? Is this thought really true? What would I say to a dear friend in this situation? What have other people done in this situation that has worked for them? Feeling and being victimized is all about an absence of choice. One of the quickest ways out of that place is to create choices by asking different questions. #mindsetiseverything#manageyourmind#positiverecovery#askdifferentquestions#discoveryourpower#empoweryourself
