  • I HATE MY EYES.
    My 4-year-old niece said this to me a few weeks ago. She continued to explain they were too small, she didn't like her face, and that she wished her hair was longer.
    She is surrounded by a family of supportive loving humans, myself included, which means this rhetoric is coming from elsewhere: meaning, everywhere, outside the home.
    We need - we must- change the language and the conversations around our bodies, what we look like, and what it means. We must change them for all humans and children, but in particular young girls, who on average begin to be targeted by the mainstream beauty, health, fitness and " wellness" industries from a much early age. We are inundated with false expectations from these industries, non-stop, our whole lives.
    My niece wants her eyes to be a certain way, because she assumes there is one standard. There isn't. This extends to all bodies and all body parts. We aren't all aspiring to one body, one look, one size, or one shape. They all deserve inclusion and they are all worthy.
    Since I stopped boxing, I gained roughly 10 pounds. Due to the glory that is deadlifting, I am confident 5 pounds has gone to each thigh, and I am elated. These legs are strong, significant; and capable. These feelings are not deterred by the bullshit of the " thigh gap goal" or the notion of perfect legs being slim and lean. My legs are perfect because they are mine (and they can literally crush anyone who says differently.) Stop teaching and talking about bodies and looks in a manner which offers only one set precedent. Start talking about them in a way which celebrates all, honours all, and fosters a greater sense of self worth and confidence overall.
    If anyone tries to tell you differently, send them to me and my (amazing) thunder thighs to have a word or two.
    You are stunning, strong, capable, and above all: perfection in your own being.

  • Okay friends. I am going to take a moment to talk about something close to my heart. It is a sensitive subject for many, but it needs to be talked about. Body Image.-
    🎪 Let's face it, body image issues exist in the circus world too. No matter how much we say that all bodies can do circus (true as it may be), many of us struggle with negative body image. Whether it's being too short, too tall, too bulky, not bulky enough, too thick, too slender, too muscular, not muscular enough, too soft, not soft enough, broad shouldered, broad bottomed, too much or not enough breast and/or buttock, etc.-
    😔 Many of us have dealt with feeling poorly about our bodies at one point or another during circus classes. Whether it's catching ourselves in an "unflattering" angle in the mirror or camera, or feeling self conscious about wearing a Leo or body suit, most of us have had our down moments.-
    🤐 I have heard people time and time again putting their bodies down during aerial classes, and all I can think is, "Dude! You just pulled yourself in the air, hung upside down, and did something crazy! Who cares about the body part you are bashing!" But they care, and we care when it is our own bodies.-
    🤷‍♀️ Do how do we tackle negative body image in ourselves and others? We can start by not commenting on other peoples looks and stop talking negatively about ourselves. No more body-talk unless it has to do with your form while performing moves/tricks. We can focus on the awesome things that we and the people around us are doing with our bodies during classes and performances. And we can dig deep to find the positive things about ourselves that we love. As cheesy as it may sound, learning to love yourself is vital to smashing negative body image.-
    💁‍♀️ To learn more about positive body image and learning to love yourself, check out @bodyimage_therapist and go read @olinka_loves_coffee book The Self-Love Life:  How To Love Yourself For Real.-
    😉 Now go on with your amazing self and have a wonderful rest of your week 💖.-

    😶 These are a combination of photos where I see some and feel really good about myself. Others make me feel self-conscious. Oh well! This is me! 🤷‍♀️💃

  • This is one of my clients that I have online. Yes, all done remotely as she does not live near me. ❤️ · · · The first photo was taken 3 weeks after my abdominoplasty. I remember really loving how thin I looked, my tiny legs and arms and couldn’t wait to get back to exercising to ‘tone’ my stomach. I look at it now and think I look shocking. I thought the best body was the skinniest body and that’s what I wanted to be. Skinny. But it’s not my natural body type, I build muscle quickly in my upper body and my legs. Being skinny doesn’t suit me. I under ate for years and was over exercising, my metabolism was shot and if I ever ate more than usual I would very quickly gain fat. My hormones were all over the place and my body didn’t know what the fuck it was doing.
    Thanks to Instagram I started taking notice of fitness models and athletes. They weren’t skinny, they were strong. That’s what I wanted to be! I joined the gym in February of last year, I had zero clue on what to do, how to do it, how much to do. I would youtube everything whilst at the gym then copy.
    I was eating more but still not enough. I started with my coach who got me on track and slowly built up my calories. I’m now 7-8 kilos heavier than that photo and am currently on 2600 calories a day compared to the 1200-1500 I was before. I was rarely hungry back then, except for bedtime where I would hush my hunger with a soup sized cup of tea and some chocolate. Now everyday I wake up starving and go to bed satisfied.
    I feel very physically strong. My body responded very well and very quickly to weightlifting and proper nutrition. I haven’t cut any food groups, I don’t talk myself out of meals. I don’t restrict myself. Food isn’t the enemy. I’m so glad I got out of that depressing head space to where I am now. I’m so glad. 💪🏼
