We can have short hair one day, long hair the next, and medium length the third while keeping the world guessing as to how we do it. Embrace your shrinkage.

goodnight pillow mist. It’s really important to take time out for you, even if you have a hectic schedule. For me I’m slowly getting back on track with nutrition, exercise and general wellbeing. I know I say that all the time but I continuously find myself slipping back to old habits particularly when life gets pretty hectic. When I take time out even if for ten mins I can monitor how I feel, generally feel so much better and clear headed when I’m eating the right things, moving about and sleeping properly. #mondaymotivation #mondaymotivation #wellbeing #sleep #busylife #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #hearingimpairment #hearingaids #confidence

Sometimes in life we are responsible to open new doors... I am curious and confident.
This week, every day I’ll be posting something new that will help with fat loss! Since I just started my Bikini Prep I wanted to share tips on fat loss and share personal knowledge on what has helped me lose body fat. I’ll be going over topics like nutrition, cortisol levels, metabolism, and more.
For today’s topic I wanted to bring up the importance of fat in general.
1️⃣Fat is crucial for hormones and growth. With this said, body fat helps with sex hormones giving you healthy levels of estrogen (specifically for women health) which is why it’s acceptable for females to have high levels than males.
2️⃣It’s also necessary to have body fat because it is insulation for our body to help regulate body temperature while cushioning our vital organs.
3️⃣Healthy fat levels prevent sickness and chronic fatigue. Energy levels can feel depleted when body fat is too low (competitors go through this a lot), but this can also happen to those at high body fat working on lowering BF due to calorie expenditure and “shocking” the body of changes it hasn’t adapted too.(best way I can explain it)
4️⃣important for the absorption and storage of Fat-Soluble vitamins: A, D,E,K
5️⃣important for cell structure and maintaining healthy hair, skin, and nails
Healthy body fat % ranges between female and male and between certain ages. Since majority of my followers are between 25-35 years old I’ll list healthy ranges below:
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s topic on metabolism and how to know how much you should be eating🤗

*Warning: kind of long post ahead*
I wanted to thank all of you who commented on my last post where I opened up immensely about my shitty mental health. Thank you so much for your kind comments, your words are appreciated whole heartedly and I mean that from the bottom of my empty ass numb heart. I re read your words everyday when I start to feel the stormy cloud of darkness loom over my shoulders. Your words are rays of light to my shit storm thunder, and mean more to me than you can imagine. Sometimes I forget that the feelings and emotions I'm going through are momentarily. Once I get sucked into my black hole, it's difficult to crawl back out. That same day I had a mental breakdown. I also had a job interview (praying every day I get it) so I can keep myself busy and continue to support myself so I can have enough money to eat, continue attending school, and hopefully move out as soon as possible. I'm in a difficult place right now and it's been almost 2 months since I started living on my own. It is such a wake up call and eye opener because I'm being forced to grow up at 22. Some people have their life together at this age [I am super jealous] but others are not that fortunate enough. Sometimes life happens and we are all not lucky to graduate college on time, or even go to college bc we have to start paying bills at such a young age or move out bc of dysfunctional family problems. Whatever it may be, I just feel so blessed that all of this is happening to me. I am a firm believer of the universe, (god, science whatever you may belive ) throws challenges at us to help us GROW as individuals. This pain now will be worth it later. The universe dissconects us from certain people that bring us down or even connects certain people together for a reason. I am a very spiritual person and I know that these struggles are struggles I must endure to keep GROWING. Thank you everyone and thank you For. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Last call! I’m opening up just 3 more spots! It is never too late to take the first step! Whether that’s losing 5-10 pounds before summer, starting your journey to the healthier lifestyle that you have wanted, or just taking the first step in starting over, just take it!
Life happens! Life gets in the way! AND IT’S OKAY! No one is perfect, and it doesn’t make you a bad person. It makes you human! .
During my pregnancy, I gained 45 lbs. Post pregnancy, I felt that I needed a change and that I needed to restore the confidence that I had pre-pregnancy.
Almost 10 months after I decided to start over in my fitness journey, I am close to where I want to be. I’ll admit, there were a lot of early mornings and hard work involved. And honestly, I have missed workouts and I overindulged on occasion…but THAT’S OKAY! I’m human. I know that an occasional step backwards really doesn’t hurt my progress that bad, as long as I am consistent and I keep moving forward!
But it all starts with taking that first step!
If you're wanting to lose weight, tone up, or get into a consistent nutrition & fitness routine, I have a few spots left in my accountability group starting today. Don't quit on yourself. Are you ready for a change? Comment I’M IN! Or apply with the link in my profile.

The creative process is rarely black and white. It can get messy and overwhelming and that is it's beauty. This is me prepping to present at the One Woman conference in Halifax at the end of April. How did you or will you embrace and express your creative flow today?
P.s. I hope to see you at the conference, check out OneWoman.ca for all the details.♡☆
Random fact.... .
I never used to wear my hair all slicked back because I thought it made me look ugly. 🤷🏻♀️
But these days I feel beautiful no matter what. With my hair all pulled back, with sweatpants on, with NO makeup, I could even feel pretty in a potato sack... and it’s all because of self-Love, confidence, and acceptance.
The day you accept yourself no matter what you look like, and love yourself from the inside out; will be the day you start shining brighter than you ever have before. #selflove #confidence #bodypositivity
A basic black trench coat is one of the most useful investment you can have in your closet and a part of my basic travel uniform. Mine is by Burberry; it keeps me warm during my flights and I arrive looking stylish! What do u guys think? 🍒
Today I have my first of three practical exams for clinical examination ... needless to say, I’m freaking out just a little🙈
My oils of choice today are based around supporting myself to remain focused, calm and confident🌱I would be a emotional wreck without these oils as a supportive tool in times like this♥️
No one will know until it’s too late!! Be awesome and build today
It's helpful to say to ourselves at times,
"Hey you-knucklehead! 😠You're lucky enough to be alive! The likelihood of all of your ancestors coming together to eventually produce, YOU, was almost non-existent. It was merely a coincidence!!" .... 😱
Be grateful for this miracle of LIFE. You ARE the miracle!! Why be anything but kind and loving to yourself? 💕
"I am much more happier when I'm wearing my waist beads. Believe it or not I feel very bare/naked when I have on my bathing suit and no waist beads. It definitely completes my look. My favorite thing about my waist beads is it does a good job tracking my waist size... and they are just super cute.... oh, and I get lots of compliments." -@sherenasab
Is your skin tone uneven? So was April’s ..
"Some people get a beautiful glow with their pregnancy, and then there are some people like me that develop dark brown/gray patches on their face. With my second pregnancy in the works, these spots are popping up again but I am so fortunate to have the fix for the future. Are you struggling with dark marks, uneven tone or dullness? Give Reverse a whirl to see what it can do for you!“- April Burford
Dark marks can run deep and correction takes time. Reverse worked for April and if you would like to “clean the slate”, it could work for you too (or your money back with R+F’s 60 day money back guarantee.
