My girl 💖💖
I wasn’t going to post this picture because I thought my tummy looked fat, how bloody ridiculous is that. I only gave birth 6 weeks ago, of course I’m going to have a tummy still! From tomorrow I’m going to make sure I’m eating a lot healthier as I have been eating a lotttttt of chocolate but I’m still going to treat myself here and there. I mean I need all the calories to pass on to Maxy through my breast milk right!? 😂

WHO OUT HERE DECIDED “THIN” WAS THE ONLY WAY TO SHOW UP IN THE SUMMER?!
Kate Moss, I’m looking at your “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” statement sis.
1 - ALOT of things taste better than skinny, as if I need to let you in on that secret. Have you ever had a warm brownie with cold cookie dough ice cream whilst watching Netflix? TASTES BETTER THAN SKINNY.
2 - Summer is around the corner and this season is terrifying for so many women. Maybe it’s because we see tabloids exploiting celebrities for showing cellulite at the beach (God forbid. How dare she.)
Maybe it’s because you only see photos of thin women in all those pinterest swimwear images.
If you literally have a body in the summer, you have a summer body. It’s perfect. It’s capable of laying in the sun and enjoying margs by the pool. It’s capable of making endless memories with the people you love.
Don’t waste this summers potential because you don’t look like her.
You are a beautiful summer beach ANGEL and every bit of you is worth showing up ☀️
People who wonder whether the glass is half empty or half full are missing the point.
The glass is REFILLABLE and so is life, so smile and fill your life with what matters to you🥛

In the end I am the only one who can give my child a happy mother.
O, you stopped strolling because maybe I was going to talk about getting abs!? Ya, no, that’s not the point.
It’s not about physically taking care of yourself for abs, it’s about taking care of yourself for your mental health. Happiness and fulfillment is the only transformation I worry about for myself and my challengers. Amazing physical and mental changes happen when you show up to push yourself and focus on your happiness ❤️

Do you ever look at pictures of yourself & remember exactly how you felt that day?
A year from now, I hope I look back on these pictures & remember:
I felt confident.
I felt happy.
I felt worthy.
I’ve been on a journey to body positivity for about a year now. I’ve read countless books, blogs, articles. I’ve listened to more interviews & podcasts that I can count. And I’ve spent a lot of time with Jesus - hashing out the ins and outs of my calling & my worth.
In this year, I’ve changed tremendously - in every way. Better yet, I’ve grown. I’ve been fighting so hard to be able to look in a mirror - and look inside my heart - and see beauty rather than imperfection.
Ya see, this whole self love thing isn’t (and hasn’t been) just for me.
It’s easy to think that initially.
But because I’ve spent this year working on how I see, treat & champion myself - I’m a better girlfriend, daughter, friend & sister.
I’m kinder. —> Because I wake up every day with a renewed love for myself & others.
We weren’t meant to live in insecurity - this much I know is true. Sometimes the decision to see yourself through the lens of love is the most unselfish selfish decision you can ever make.
It truly is the gift that keeps on giving.
So here’s to a year on this journey & to many, many more! 💕🍹
coffee & sunshine ✨

So... You didn't expect this this morning
I have been searching for the guts of a year for a sports bra to fit my size 26 top half, and my 42 d chest and I swear I have tried all brands with no luck till now.
Step in @hm in a 2xl you perfect thing!! Thanks to @cosmetics.junkiee for her post on the brand I have shopped till I dropped online!!! But let's be real for a minute, we don't see much of this online talked about, and to be honest I am not seeing much plus size representation in NI I am talking over a 22 so I am definitely going to be doing more of this what do you all think?? Bring on the couch to 5k,to get my body a little healthier and mind clearer
I have tagged all the H and M stores in NI I can think of so definitely check them out

A woman in tune with Mother Earth is a highly adaptable creature. Place her in an unknown enviroment and you will be amazed by the fluid grace she presents moving amongst her surroundings.
It was a pleasure meeting the talented and stunning @sophia_flood today. This brave lady trusted me to capture her abundant confidence exploring a spring for her first time. It's fair to say she may have discovered a new found love. 💙

|HEAD HEALTH| So back in the UK it is Mental Health Awareness week. This year the focus and theme is body image. Last week, I wrote a blog post about my own challenges with this.

AD | Life is all about saying YES to new adventures! ✨🌎
Whether it's exploring a new destination, trying something for the first time, or experimenting with new styles when it comes to clothes! 💫
I'm LOVING the new @boden_clothing summer pieces right now, they've really pushed me to try out new styles - I've never worn a halter / wrap neck swimsuit before so this was a first for me, and to my surprised I absolutely loved it! 😍
I found the cut was super flattering (and comfy too which is always key!). I've been trying out bold colours and loving every minute of it (check out my stories to see how I styled up my favourite Boden swim pieces and experimented with new styles and colours!) 🙏🏻
What are you saying YES to this summer girls?!
#Boden #BodenxMe #AD
And maybe even the people we DO like??
There’s almost 8 billion people on this planet. You will find your people, they’re out there. They will love and accept you as you are. The ones you can be yourself around. This brings us a sense of true belonging, the connection we’re craving.
Changing yourself just to “fit in” or to be liked, admired, or accepted does not bring us a sense of belonging. We may even feel more shame as we try to change ourselves to fit in because shame is the fear of disconnection, of being perceived as unworthy, unlovable, or not good enough. The worst part: we have 0 control over what others think or say about us. We spend all this time and energy and for what?
Will these people still be there for you if your true self starts to show? Or when your body inevitably changes? Will you even know who you are if you’re playing some version of yourself you think others will like better?
You are enough as you are right now.
You are worthy as you are right now.
You are lovable as you are right now.
"if you don't like what I'm wearing... well, you're only bothered 'cause you're staring and you'll never talk me into caring 'cause it's my own and I'll keep owning it' - @beamiller knows.
Don't let what others might say about you make you feel less beautiful ❤ 📷: @bild21_fotostudio

THE SECRET IS OUT: How to change your body shape instantly with zero effort 🤭
As most of my clients know this is the absolute first thing I talk about when we start our first session. How you can change how your body shape looks just by changing one small thing... your shoulders!
Try it, stand in front of the mirror lift your shoulders towards your ears, roll them back and down and feel the shoulder blades squeezing together behind. Instant shape change with zero effort.
Obviously we don’t want to walk around like a T-Rex all the times so luckily there are many exercises you can do to activate these lazy muscles that are making you look completely different to the truth. Let me know if you want the exercises and I will post a video.
To continue watching this incredible story with Eli please follow the link in my bio. He is truly inspirational ❤️

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” - Dr. Wayne Dyer
If you’ve been following my #igtv journey, you know I’ve began talking about how we can stop talking sh*t to ourselves. How we can actually rewire our brains and create New beliefs, simply by practicing new thoughts. This is so so important because if you can’t speak to yourself with love, then you most likely will be judge-y of others too. You know like that one saying that everyone quotes from Oprah... ‘hurt people, hurt people.’ Well it’s true. People who talk sh*t to or about themselves, talk sh*t about others. #psych101
Like most everything else, it’s an inside job. We must learn to speak nicely to and about ourselves First. And then when speaking of others, ask yourself
1. Is it necessary that I say this?
2. Is this a kind thing to say?
3. Is this True?
Goal: try to hit all 3 of these criteria! 💕Who’s up for the challenge??
Current physique 💪
Got some news from an osteopath yesterday that i have minor scoliosis which i always kind of knew but kept brushing it off because i didnt want to have it or believe people who told me i did..!
I have severe neck problems and always in pain but i just thought it was normal but obviously having scoliosis is part of the cause of it..! -
Ive been so down the last year not being able to train as i used to over the pain and clicking in my neck..! -
It was so interesting what the osteopath was saying that being the second twin born has to do with my posture problems from sharing a womb and the way squashed together ( well she used different words i cant remember 😂) and that we have cranial damage on different sides which we do as i always complain about my left ear and neck clicks and ciara does on her right side..! She was the lucky twin tho who was born first and not breeched so she doesnt have scoliosis..! -
The osteopath said to me that she wants to try change my mindset about my neck clicking and scoliosis to positive and accepting that i have it instead of being negative and hating it because the mind works wonders so thats what im going to try even tho its so hard to be positive about this..!! -
Anyways sorry about my waffle on but instead of keeping my problems to myself and pretending im delighted with my body and my physique, im dealing with a lot of problems atm that might help me and others if i share ❤️
Ps wearing my new @zaful bikini i just tried on for hols in 2 weeks -

If you don’t have the time nor inclination to listen to a full episode of the Glow Journal podcast then please, please just listen to this episode from 35 minutes and beyond. We all need to hear this. Isle of Paradise founder Jules Von Hep is more than a celebrity tanning expert- he is truly changing the face of the beauty industry. While his ten-plus years of beauty industry experience and rapport with celebrity clientele including Kate Moss, Blake Lively and Kendall Jenner are all made apparent within his self tanning formulas, what’s more impressive is who Jules is as a human being. Jules is a body confidence advocate the likes of which I’ve never come into close contact with before and his words on the subject resonated with me so much that it was almost disarming. I know a lot of people listen to podcasts while they’re doing other things but, for the last 15 odd minutes of this interview please stop whatever it is you’re doing and really listen. His entire story is fun and inspiring and his brand is incredible and is a personal favourite of mine, but his message regarding body confidence and self perception is one of the most important messages I’ve been given the opportunity to share thus far on this podcast and I am of the belief that this is something everyone needs to hear. In this episode of the Glow Journal podcast, Jules talks building a brand from the ground up, the importance of diversity and inclusivity within the beauty space and why we need to get a grip and make peace with our bodies. Listen now on iTunes and Spotify. #glowjournal
While I was taking this picture, this girl walked by and she said:" OmG I need that " 🍑😅 that's why I have this face expression. ☺

There’s a honeymoon phase in the early stage of intuitive eating where you might crave all the food you haven’t been able to eat. You might eat a lot of it, too. I know this can feel really scary but that’s why there’s 10 principles that can be used to bring us back to the intuitive eaters we were born as.
We’ll begin to notice that food tastes a lot better when we’re physically hungry and have a craving for that food. It even tastes better when we start eating it vs when we’ve had enough. Those subtle cues aren’t so obvious in the beginning. They might even take a few months - or even a year, everyone is different!
There’s a good reason why gentle nutrition is the last principle. We often have to work through the other principles first before we incorporate this one or we risk turning IE into another diet. Black and white thinking takes over and we’ll see food as good or bad. Well think we can only eat when we’re hungry and stop when we’re full. We feel like failures instead of seeing every eating ‘mistake’ as just information! You’re learning about yourself.
Many will naturally come to gentle nutrition without trying as they work through the other principles because it turns out it doesn’t actually feel good to eat bacon egg and cheese sandwiches on a maple bacon donut every single day. But when we’re hungry and craving it? Yes, please.
💙 PROMISES TO MY BODY 💙 .
We all have those days, where we wish we looked like someone else, or felt how we used to, or or or ... and that’s ok. But in reality, this is the only body we have and the only one we’re going to get so instead of working against it try working with it and even when you’re having one of those days take a second to think of all the positives and all the things it’s done for you! .
