Here’s to all the bitches that feel like shit after havin a baby. I’ve given myself a hard bloody time the last 2 months cause I havnt bounced straight back after havin the little fella. Time to relax, silence the self doubt and enjoy my amazing life. #selfexceptance
I fell into a vicious mindset. I believed if I took time for me it made me a bad mom. It made a bad wife. For five years I struggled with this mindset and put myself on the bottom of any list and self care was not an option.
After my second child was born it only got worst, myself esteem was non existent, my self worth was nothing and then one day it all changed. My husband asked me what would happen to our family if I got sick? Where would we be? He stressed the importance of taking care of myself and that I wasn't a bad mom or selfish if you took some time each and every day for me! So I listened and I am working on being the best I can be for myself and my family. I want to be the best mom and wife I possibly can be. I am so greatful for the man I call my husband, my best friend, my partner. #takingcareofmom#selflove#selfcare#followmystory#selfesteem#selfexceptance#mindset#youareabadass#youareworthit
Your bra will get less padded
With each passing Spring,
Till the size of your pores won’t be
A concern of yours any longer.
You will pause at your reflection
Without looking for flaws,
But with a secret smile of admiration.
You will look into your own eyes
And see the Universe ✨
One day you will put that concealer down
And let those scars be.
Saying “No” will get so easy
You will be surprised.
And staying alone with yourself
Will be a punishment no more,
But a precious gift.
Everything you ever looked for
Was always there,
Growing old is not as scary as they say 💃🏻

Some -or most- think my Insta name is shit. Especially my dad! ..who wants to spread the word, real sweet ❤️🙌 BUT just can’t / won’t remember!
It get it; it’s long, it’s foreign haha 🤣
The reason I don’t do “just” Eva’s Foodfest .. is that this name (I got like 14 years ago!) really suits me.
I’m not your typical diva, but I ain’t your typical butchy chef either.
I am a foodsnob, nowadays we can just call that #foodie . But back in the days I was way to young to be like “no I only eat thát there, not here blabla”
I already enjoyed cooking and being creative with development of recipes, but well even when doing groceries ..a Diva! .
The other reason my friends called me this was for the way I dressed.
I hated my big feet so I sort of always wore heels. With those I wore a lot of feminine outfits (mostly skirts and dresses because they fit better more often then pants) that the Dutch find to much; they tend to only dress up when there is a wedding ..not stereotyping, just how it is in general 😌
My reason -besides just liking it- for dressing up really ladylike was so I could be my self. That I could compensate my masculine energy with my feminine looks. 🤔
Nowadays I’m more okay with being a tomboy! I combined my romantic skirt with Nikes because it’s just more convenient for walks (shit I’m a real Dutch woman now 🤣).
Maybe the name is still shit. Maybe I need to vlog before you guys agree? 🤷🏻♀️ Maybe this name is from the past and I’m hiding behind it .. I guess we’ll find out! 🙃
#personalblog#evadiva @antmvh1 jup that’s where it came from (back in the days when I owned a tv) #rotterdam#skyline#manhattanaandemaas#010#roffa#tomboy#femenine#masculineenergy#lady#ladylike#diva#dirtyjokes#bosslady#testosterone#oneoftheguys#stereotypes#boxes#whatsnormalanyway#foodsnob#flowy#plisseskirt @mango #nikeairmax @nike #girlswithsunglasses#selfexpression#selfexceptance#selfawareness#selfawarenessjourney thanks to @leungjacc for the picture ❤️
One of the most profound lessons I have learned in the last two years, is to stop apologizing for not being available for, or participating in, anything that steals my peace. If you don't want to donate to a cause you don't support just because you feel an obligation to a friend, don't. If making time for an event that isn't vitally important cuts into time spent with your kids, or working on an important project, don't attend. Maturity is recognizing that not all people share the same beliefs, goals, likes and dislikes, and a friend, a REAL friend, should never use your relationship with them as a tool to guilt trip you. #peace#putyourselffirst#selfexceptance#selfcare#takecareofyourself#noapologies#neveragain
PB on a PB... I'll take that 😁 Bagged the 48kg with a second attempt and am sooooo close to that 50kg mark! 💪
Although I've been a bit all over the shop and skipped out on more training sessions that I'd like to admit the past month. I am over the 🌕 with the constant progress 🙌
To think back on all the times I had ever doubted myself... well lets say if you had asked me 7 mths ago if I ever thought I would be able to #pushpress 50kg over head I would have 😂😂😂 and replied with "maybe with a FEW YEARS of training", yet here I am 7mths later and only 2kgs away from it! 🙏💪😎 Couldn't be more proud of nor happier with myself and the real work I have been putting in for it to be clearly paying off, even if I do mess up every so often 👊😆 #imnotpregnantorfatmybellyjustbepoppin 😂 #pb#nolimit#cfsw#crossfit#crossfitgirls#crossfitmum#selfexceptance#makeitalifestyle
Can’t except others until be exempt ourselves. When you look at someone and judge them it’s just a clear reflection of how you judge yourself and how hard it is to exempt yourself as you are. Have a little check in every time we judge someone. #businessfromwithin
This is me happy.
I've struggled with depression for as long as I can remember. I'm not a very outwardly excitable person. People that see me while out in public probably know me as a social butterfly, and a lot more smiley because I've practiced my whole life to be that person, and I genuinely do love sharing my time with a room full of people and sharing good vibes, dancing to just about anything, talking your ear off, and laughing until my face hurts.
When you get to really know me on a personal level, you realize that I am quiet, reflective, a bit self-destructive, and an open book with some dark chapters that you might stumble upon, and possibly relate to.
This is a photo from a chapter leading to one of darkness.
I feel like this photo sums me up a bit.
There's a vulnerability and sadness in my eyes that peer through the weak walls that I have built around me. You have to search for it, but I'm definitely smiling, knowing very well that I'd have to start over to make it back to the light. That's just how I roll. I used to hate that about myself, but I've learned to embrace my nature. It's part of me, and I love myself.
You can't grow without a little destruction, right? It's okay to start over. And over. And over. Keep going. Grow, blossom, destruct, seed, repeat.
Tonight I want to take a moment to be vulnerable. For quite some time I have allowed myself to give up one of my biggest dreams in becoming a dancer. For the first time tonight, I attended a Christian hip hop class, and it felt amazing to perform. It reminded me that even with out experience I am more then capable of achieving my dream! I want to remind myself it’s okay that I’m not where I want to be with this journey...but this is just the beginning! Thank you Panda&Trini for tonight! ❤️ #selfexceptance#bravestyearyet#dancemoves 💃🏻
#אתגר_אהבת_גופי כעבור כמה חודשיים
זוכרים שאתגרתי את עצמי- לקבל את עצמי באהבה בכל צורה ובכל משקל,
להיות טובה עם עצמי,
להזין אותי באוכל בריא,
לדאוג לבצע ספורט מאוזן,
לדאוג למנוחה שלי,
לדאוג להזין גם את הנפש שלי
ולהנות מכל רגע?
ובכן, להגיד שעמדתי בהכל בכל רגע ובכל יום יהיה ממש לא מדויק.
אבל התמדתי באותו קו ואני ממשיכה בכך.
אתמול נשקלתי אצל אורטל @ortio היקרה, שהיא רפלקסולוגית ונטורופתית ויש לה משקל שמודד אחוזי שומן ושריר.
זה היה מעט יותר מחודשיים אחרי הפעם האחרונה שנשקלתי אצלה.
וקרה משהו מדהים.
המשקל לא השתנה.
אחוז השומן ירד מעט ואחוז השריר עלה מעט.
שוב- המשקל לא השתנה.
אבל רגע לפני שנשקלתי, נזכרתי כמה לא היה לי טוב עם עצמי בפעם הקודמת.
כמה הרגשתי שמנה ומכוערת.. כמה רע לי עכשיו רק לחשוב שהעזתי לחשוב כך על עצמי.
ואתמול עליתי על המשקל בכיף.
הרגשתי טוב עם עצמי, יפה ונשית.
היתה לי תחושה שלא יהיה שינוי גדול במשקל, אבל הבנתי שהמשקל פחות מעניין אותי כרגע.
מעניין אותי להיות בריאה (שינוי באחוזי השריר והשומן מעידים על מגמת שיפור)
מעניין אותי להרגיש טוב עם עצמי
זה חשוב לי יותר מכל דבר.
וההתכווננות לכך והפוקוס על הדברים האלה, משנה אצלי את ההרגשה הפנימית ואין לי ספק שגם את היופי החיצוני שאני משדרת.
אם התחברתם, יש סרט בנות חמוד שממש מדבר על העומק של הדברים האלה, בצורה קלילה וכיפית ואני באופן אישי ממליצה עליו: "מרגישה פצצה"
קדימה אהבה עצמית💗 .
In defense of selfie...
I started to believe that taking a selfie is a new way of showing self love.
Self love is healing, nurturing and beautiful. It’s when you do realize that you are a Devine Spirit in this human experience. Love my female human experience. There is so much to it. I love being a mom, a daughter, a sister and a Lover. I love my space. I feel safe in it. It’s where I recoup and fill myself with pure energy, connect to the Devine Spirit. This is where my true spiritual journey begins. Here I am 4 month after removal of breast implants. On the January, 11 of 2018 I was born again. The new me is 100% real, open minded, self loving, self excepting and connected to a Spirit more than ever!
Love and light to all of you! 😘🙏🏻💚🦋🌺
