Doesn’t this sound a bit discouraging in a way? It’s that fleeting thought in your mind that goes “Are we almost there yet?! I don’t have much more energy/time/stamina to push any harder than I am”. PLOT TWIST! You actually do! You are more capable than you might realize! So own it! Get to work, hustle hard, rest at the end of the week and repeat. Live a productive life, give back and reap the rewards of your efforts! .
What do you want your legacy to be?
Have you started on it? How long have you been thinking about it?
Waiting for the right time? Enough money? 💵
Now is as good a time as any. If not now, then when?
Ya’ll ready for this? 😂 Then ➡️ Now. •
Starting this Monday & week off with some real, raw *BODY POSITIVITY* in all its jiggly gloriousness 🤷🏼♀️ As I wrap up the final weeks in my second pregnancy, I find myself falling more and more in love with the female body. Guys the before pictures were AFTER my very first pregnancy and I was just as big if not bigger when I carried Elliott. (Yes I know I’m huuuuge lol & at the end of the video my mom told me to throw in some air squats & then I gave myself a major wedgie 😂) •
Isn’t that insane tho?! Talk about a transformation-mentally & physically, and that’s only half of what we as females are truly capable of! Move over boyssss, here come the true powerhouses! 🔥 #whoruntheworld#girls 🤪
Lol, anyways... what I’m getting at is, I’ve always always always struggled with having a healthy relationship with my body. For the longest time it was never good enough & I really struggled 👎🏼 It’s crazy how different my two pregnancies have been! Before Elliott I wasn’t nearly as educated as I am now, wasn’t active, wasn’t “overweight” but also wasn’t in a great state of health at all, and did not eat the best! I went into this current pregnancy at the peak of my health with so much more knowledge, living a very active lifestyle, eating nutritious fueling food, and just overall happier! I have not weighed myself, counted macros, or even stuck to a strict workout schedule while growing my second daughter. 🤰🏼Instead I’ve used my passion and knowledge for health & nutrition and twisted it into a lifestyle that works for me right now- and for reference that consists of eating whole food choices when I’m hungry & until I’m satisified, staying active- even if that means just a long long walk everyday, & eating the goods with a moderation mindset in place! 🍪🍩🍕 •
Y’all better get ready for this comeback, because once I’m healed I’m coming in full speed ahead! 🔥🚨😎 So yeah if you took anything out of this, take this with you today, #LOVEYOURSELF & like always #justkeepmoving 🖤

My fellow runners.. fat, slim, in between, and all... I call on you to go read the open letter that my friend Martinus Evans @300poundsandrunning has written to call attention to race directors who are leaving out the back 1/3 of racers. We aren’t 10:00 minute per mile runners, we aren’t even 12:00 minute per mile runners sometimes.. but we paid our damn money just like the 5:00 min per mile guy. Now I know roads have to be re opened, but have some decency and use some smarts race directors. WE MAY BE SLOWER AND BIGGER ... but we also have $$ to spend on your races and gear. Pay attention, yes I’m talking to you @nike @newbalance @altrarunning @brooksrunning @nathansportsinc to name a few. Companies like @merrell and @hokaoneone have already seen the revenue potential in the untapped market of plus size athletes! YEA WE RUN! #whoruntheworld#fatpeople
Having a wheeeee-ly good time with this one ✌️
Whilst I may not be back properly running, I’m making the most of my injury time cycling around Niagara stopping at the wineries along the way 🍷🥂🍷
Happy Monday babes! I went into the weekend feeling depleted and exhausted and came out of it feeling 1000000 percent and ready to take on the world. That’s the power of self love and self care. It’s actual magic. This weekend mine looked like yoga, reiki, crystals, a few face masks, clean laundry, lots laughs, QT with family and making beautiful products for you with focused intention. (Which is way better than when I am frazzled). I have a challenging habit of getting swept up in the drama/stress of my job as soon as Monday rolls around but today my intention is to be aware and notice when my mind wanders into that familiar pattern of stress and anxiety, and choose to instead tune into my high from the weekend, remember who I am and what I am here to do. Hope you all have an AMAZING start to your week!! ✨✨✨ Image by the hella talented @broken_isnt_bad
Who better knows what girls need than girls themselves? 🙋🏽♀️
Girls around the world are leading movements and creating change. 🐛🦋 That's why we commissioned this participatory research in collaboration with @fridafund - to learn from these amazing girls organisers.

“Scattavo durante la settimana della moda e per la maggior parte del tempo ero l'unica ragazza nella "fossa del fotografo" piena di soli uomini. È stato sempre affascinante per me, ma non mi sono mai sentita scoraggiata da questo. Ero orgogliosa di essere (a volte) l'unica ragazza tra una folla di uomini, letteralmente. Mi sono sentito apprezzata per le mie capacità e non solo come donna, ma anche come individuo ambizioso e grintoso. Amo questa nuova #girlboss community che abbiamo e mi piace lavorare con altri colleghi imprenditrici. Questo è ciò che il femminismo è per me: costruire una comunità di donne forti e solidali.” @karen.rosalie 🌸
#KarenRosalie ci racconta come ha aperto il suo studio fotografico e la sua agenzia, come realizzare un flatlay perfetto, del suo rapporto con i social media e con la fotografia e molto altro! La sua intervista è online su KUBE 🙌🏻✨
Sunday’s with the sis in law usually consist of tea biscuits and a lot of crazy kids running around - all mine 🙋🏻♀️ but not yesterday .. not only did she convince me to take a day away.. kid free.. she ensured it was a day well spent .. with great company and dancing of course 💪🏻 Delighted to say I’m now a qualified The Mix by piloxing instructor - this programme is amazing taking dance fitness to a whole new level and I realised yesterday how much I miss it , I missed that ME , the dancer , the teacher , the fitness instructor , the fun loving let’s do this ME
When your a mummy of 4 kiddies it’s easy to get lost in the daily tasks of feeding , clothing ,cleaning, tantrums , school runs and after school activities then You add in being a full time carer and your talking extensive medication and tube feeding regimes, sleepless nights, dressings, seizure control , hospital appointments , Physio and occupational therapy the list goes on .. so dancing took a back seat for quite some time .. but I realised that ME needs to resurface maybe not today or tomorrow , maybe not next week or month but when I feel the time is right I’ll be back with a bang
As always thank you @sarahmariemcdevitt you know what for !! And thank you to @chloe_deery_ and @focusfitnessdance for the fun day spent with some fabulous ladies and lots of laughs #whoruntheworld#bodyrolls @jordankateballard you are fantastic what a day what a training what a program safe home #whataparty#watchthisspace#onedayatatime#thisisme#dancefitness#girlboss#fulltimemum#caring#themixbypiloxing

In time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our piece on the kind work of @lookgoodfeelbetter is up on @yahooespanol today.
We had the privilege of documenting this public service program that teaches beauty techniques to people with cancer to help them manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment. Thousands of volunteers make it possible, and the self-esteem transformation in the participants before and after is major. Does makeup hold all the power? As artist Marco Romero put it, “Makeup only helps cover the skin’s flaws; these women really have the power from the moment they walk in.” Check out the story via www.espanol.yahoo.com
R E T R E A T // sometimes we all need a little time out to retreat inwards and just enjoy some rest
I am feeling very grateful for the past six days up high in the mountains, waking up to this stunning view and singing, stretching and meditating my worries away at #purnayogaretreat#pokhara
And, for the wonderful people I’ve shared these moments with @magleprince_photography @theworldandv thanks ladies 💛✨🥥😊👣
I am excited to hear about your next adventures ladies.... and to swap stories along the way of treks in Nepal, adventures in Ethiopia and training in Goa! What a wonderful group of inspiring women ✨ #whoruntheworld
I’m back in Tampa❤️ I am thankful I had time away with family to recharge my mom batteries! I missed my babies but I think “you” time is needed too. It’s a weird feeling of “I would love to drink my coffee in silence” and “why is it so quiet? This is strange. I miss them😭” .
Happy Monday ❤️🙏🏼
🧖🏻♀️Guys, I am IN LOVE!!.🧖🏻♀️ I have used HairCovery 3 times:
I just woke up and my hair looked like this- and I washed my hair last FOUR DAYS AGO! 😮
I use our Shampoo, Conditioner, and Serum. My hair feels light, soft and not weighed down AT ALL!! 💕
Honestly. I didn’t have to use a single product on my hair- no hair spray, oil, or volumizing powder!
Usually by day four my DRY hair is getting brittle in the ends- this morning it is still SO SOFT!! 😍
The bounce is TO DIE FOR💕!! The volume was noticeably increased after just one wash!
The serum is so light and after my hair was dry, there was absolutely NO residue or sticky feeling at all.
The smell is light, pleasant, and clean!
These products work to strengthen restore hair back to its best possible state. I AM A BELIEVER!!! So AMAZED with this system! 🙌🙌 14 Years in the Hair Industry- and I've NEVER HAD MY HAIR FEEL LIKE THIS!! 😍😍
