Workout time! With your own body weight!
Workouts don’t have to be complicated. There doesn’t need to be a bunch of fancy equipment. I’ve always liked training with simple to no equipment. You can target the whole body almost head to toe with this workout. You can also do it anywhere! How handy is that!? It’s sometimes hard to get to the gym, studio or away from the family. It’s easier to just say screw it and skip your plan ato workout or exercise. It’s easier to find something else to do. Why do chores, work, screen time, social media or visiting come first? Why isn’t exercising as important? That’s because we are usually really good at doing 3-4 regular things in life. We are successful at certain things in life but then we struggle in other areas. That doesn’t mean give up or avoid the challenging areas. That means focus more time here. Keep your wheel more in balance by assessing where you need more focus. If you need help or guidance in where to start, send me a private message:) I always respond and love sharing!

the truth is we can’t expect people who are successful or people who we admire to automatically become role models. no one should be criticized for not living up to your expectations. we aren’t all perfect so don’t expect perfection from others.

Take the road less traveled, victory of the wanderlust, journey through the mystery of life, I think you must. .
You will find out so much about yourself when you step out into the unknown. See how the world will react to you and how you will react to the world. .
I was told many times by a great woman that if you're not playing a big enough game you'll take yourself out. Batters up baby! Time for your home run. .

Surfing the west coast 🌊📸
.
This photo was taken in 2011 the first time I surfed San Josef Bay BC 💕
.
. That wet suit did not last long. It was first time ever wearing something like that, and it made me feel so heavy and claustrophobic! Word of advice, if you're someone who's used to our BC water temperature skip the damn wet suit 💦😂

Isla, sitting obediently during her booster vaccine appointment 💛. She is a vizsla (or Hungarian pointer), a breed with a fascinating ancient history - trust us, look it up! In short, the breed was readily adopted by Hungarian nobility as early as the 10th century, and then nearly became extinct after WW1. Just recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1960, today they are an active sporting breed and a fantastic companion. Thanks Rachel for bringing Isla in to see us!

Thrasher Cove, the first or last campsite on the West Coast Trail depending on where you start. The hardest part of the trail (supposedly) is between here and Gordon River, the southern trailhead. 
I started at Pachena Bay, the northern "easy" part. Next time I hike the #wct I will start at Gordon River. .

Playing at liberty last night. She’s making such good progress towards laying down. Cannot wait for her to finally get it. It’s gotta be a difficult one for an ex wild horse to give up her feet like that, and I want it to be completely her decision, so slow and steady we go. #wildhorse #wildie #BCwildie #canadianmustang #Patience #PatienceTheWildHorse #rescuehorse #adoptdontshop #roan #redroan #strawberryroan #barefoot #barefoothorse #vancouverisland #horse #horses #horsesofig #horsestagram #horsesofinstagram #instahorse #horsetraining #equestrian #equestrianlife #equinesofinstagram #equestriansofinstagram

Real women are what?! I can't hop on to social media anymore without seeing posts and memes whose sole purpose is to "inform" (attack) women specifically around their bodies. 
I'm sure most of us have seen things like: "real" women have curves, "real" women have muscles, "real" women have body fat, "real" women are thin, "real" women are blah blah blah.

There are also various hashtags and taglines out there such as "strongnotskinny" and "strong is the new skinny". I admittedly used to throw these around without thinking about how I was participating in the tearing down of another woman, all so I could feel good and right in my own body *cringe*. And I am sorry. 
Things like these are built to empower the user but really shitty to read if you live in a thin body and even shittier if you don't want to be, or are sick, or can't help it.

Yes, I am asking you to think before you post. Think before you speak. And think before you act. Wouldn't the world be a happier place if we received our validation from inside ourselves; because we knew our own worth and power versus gaining it from a crappy internet meme or a few "likes"? To be clear, there is no such thing as a "real" woman, and there is no such thing as a "fake" woman. The moment we start pointing out that a real woman is only a woman if she is the same as us, a wall goes up and a division happens; it's "us" against "them". Is that really what we want Lady boss? Do we really  want to define our own worth by having to defend what and who we are, and putting down anything different?

Repeat after me, "A real woman is whoever the hell she wants to be"

Every week my 🇨🇦🇺🇸 #bordersister Angie @cardashihens and I bring you our weekly edition of #heneavenly with our thoughts. 
This week is a special edition for me as I am in one of my most favourite places in the world Vancouver Island British Columbia. And the bonus is I am still in my home country. 
Jacques Cousteau once described the area as “the best temperate water diving in the world, second only to the Red Sea” . 
Yesterday we had the privilege of watching the northern resident orcas, Pacific white sided dolphins, Dall porpoises, harbour seals, and a black bear mom and her two cubs, and a rare black tailed deer and her two fawns. 
And did I mention wearing our fashionable suits to keep warm on the boat. 
Hoping you have a great week and take some time to connect with nature ❤️🐳 #compassion #saveourplanet #overfishing #compassiontastesbetter #vegetarian #vegan #plantbased #johnstonestrait #britishcolumbia #naturelover #vancouverisland #whalewatching #nature #connectwithnature

Vancouver Island, Kanada.

Circa 7.000 Schwarzbären leben auf Vancouver Island und wir hatten das Glück, sechs von ihnen zu sehen – im Rahmen einer wunderbaren Bearwatching-Tour.

Eingepackt in schwimmfähige Ganzkörperanzüge (ein Hoch auf den westlichen Sicherheitsfanatismus) fuhren wir im motorisierten Schlauchboot vom Örtchen Ucluelet aus ins Bärenland. In den Fjordlandschaften, wo die Wälder fast bis runter ans Wasser reichen und keine Menschenseele mehr lebt, finden die Schwarzbären optimale Bedingungen vor. 
Gleich die erste Bärensichtung war ein Volltreffer, denn an einem Strand erspähten wir zwei Jungtiere im Schlepptau von Mama Bär. Die Bärenfamilie nahm unser Zodiac-Boot kaum und ohne Scheu zur Kenntnis, sodass wir viel Zeit hatten, die Tiere durch unser Fernglas zu beobachten und Fotos zu machen.

Später sahen wir dann noch zwei Einzelgänger, vermutlich Männchen, die gerade ihr Mittagessen genossen. Bei Ebbe kommen die Schwarzbären in diesem Teil von Vancouver Island nämlich an den Strand, um Austern zu knacken und Krebse zu suchen. Knack, knack, knack. Bei der Nahrungsaufnahme konnten wir die Bären nicht nur sehen, sondern auch hören.

Schwarzbären, so erzählte es unsere Tourguide, jagen nicht, sondern ernähren sich quasi von dem, was da ist. Neben Austern und Krebsen steht auch viel Vegetarisches, z.B. Beeren, auf ihrem Speiseplan. Außerdem ganz wichtig für bärenunerprobte Reisende wie uns: In der Regel haben Schwarzbären mehr Angst vorm Menschen als umgekehrt und laufen einfach davon, wenn man ihnen versehentlich zu nahe kommt. 
Die Ironie dieser Geschichte: Als wir nach mehreren Stunden wieder in den Hafen von Ucluelet einliefen, sahen wir gegenüber vom Pier den sechsten Schwarzbären an diesem Tag. Am Rande einer Siedlung wühlte er in einer Mülltonne.

Vielen Dank an @jamieswhalewatching für die tolle Tour. Wer in Ucluelet unterwegs ist, ist bei diesem Tournanbieter in besten Händen.

After THC, CBD is the second most prevalent and important cannabinoid naturally found in cannabis; and not only is it thought to be medicinally valuable, but it also modifies the way THC interacts with the body, modulating and dampening the effect of THC. Generally speaking, based on the natural variations in plant chemistry, a rule of thumb is that sativa works on the mind, and indica on the body. ⚡⚡📸: @clan420

Good night V I C T O R I A🇨🇦🌊

Morgen geht es für uns weiter nach Tofino und Richtung Pacific Rim. Dort wird es hoffentlich etwas weniger touristisch✊🏼. Victoria ist ganz schön, hat mich aber nicht umgehauen. Das Hotel ist aber wirklich schön und wir haben einen ganz entspannten Abend verbracht. ❤️ Startet gut in den Donnerstag ihr Lieben. Wir gehen jetzt schlafen 💤 ⭐️

Another throwback to 2017 when @lovecoastmusic played @thequeensnanaimo! This time featuring Matt Aasen on guitar. He also plays in the amazing @thebodypolitic from Nanaimo. Check out both of these great bands and their sick guitarist!

Here we have #keyboardist Rob from @thebodypolitic performing last year at @thequeensnanaimo I recently found this jem while scanning through old folders. Definitely go check out these talented dudes. The best metal band on Vancouver Island IMO!
