Being at home these past couple of weeks and having no choice but to workout at home has been awesome! I love the variety and versatility I am getting without needing a ton of equipment. Today’s workout was inspired by @lean.justine, her workouts are great and simple to follow! This resistance band business has my arms on FIRE! I’m so glad one of my fabulous followers shared her with me! As I watch this video, I see many areas where I need to improve but I also see a woman proud to get her sweat on and I post it to keep me accountable. And yea, I haven’t worn a tank top over my sports bra since when?!? Lovin up my stretch marks and paunch too! Booya!

Birthing during a pandemic is stressful, and with some hospitals now banning support people (and even partners), knowing your rights has never been more important. So let’s chat. ⠀ ⠀ I didn’t want to talk about this, but I know it’s necessary at this point. I don’t want to spread fear by sharing this, but these tools are essential to have in the back of your mind. With less or no support people, you might feel more pressured into making decisions or changing your plans, but you are always in charge. ⠀ ⠀ As much as we want to believe that birthing people have the final decision on everything that happens during their labour and birth, sometimes there is pushback. Whether that be from hospital “policies”, outdated practices or overworked staff, patient rights are sometimes lost in the shuffle. ⠀ ⠀ Common phrases we hear in delivery rooms that are NOT asking for consent include:⠀ ⠀ “I’m just going to check you.”⠀ ⠀ “We’re going to start pitocin in one hour.”⠀ ⠀ “We’re going to break your water now.”⠀ ⠀ “I’m going to cut an episiotomy.”⠀ ⠀ “We’re going to use forceps/vacuum to deliver your baby.”⠀ ⠀ You have a say in all of these. ⠀ ⠀ Sometimes saying no feels difficult when a crowd of healthcare workers is standing over you, or it might be hard to get the right words out when you’re focused on getting through a contraction. Here are a few ways to navigate decisions during labour:⠀ ⠀ “How much time do I have to decide?”⠀ ⠀ “What are the benefits if I agree to this?”⠀ ⠀ “What are the risks to myself and my baby?”⠀ ⠀ “What information will we get from doing this?”⠀ ⠀ “What are my other options?”⠀ ⠀ “What happens if we do nothing right now?”⠀ ⠀ “I need time to think about this.”⠀ ⠀ “I want to call my partner/doula/support person to talk about this.”⠀ ⠀ And if your decision is a no but you’re not able to say that directly (or your decision is being challenged), here are a few alternatives:⠀ ⠀ “I do not consent to this.”⠀ ⠀ “I want to wait longer before trying this.”⠀ ⠀ “I want to speak with the charge nurse.”⠀ ⠀ “I want to speak with the patient advocate.”⠀ ⠀ “I want to do it this way instead...”⠀ ⠀ No restriction or policy can ever trump your human rights.

The challenges low income women face are disproportionally affected by state laws that seek to slowly dismantle access to abortion. The organizations on the map included in this post work to address this need by offering financial assistance to women seeking abortion care in their area. We applaud their work, and want to support their efforts to make abortion accessible for all women. Link in bio to find the interactive map. // #FREYAPROJECT

“Ela não é complicada, ela não é problemática, ela não é difícil de lidar. Ela tem algumas dores, alguns traumas, algumas cicatrizes. A intensidade assusta alguns, a profundidade a faz ser um mergulho para poucos, mas ora, o raso não vai fazer ninguém feliz. Ela é intensa mesmo e não vai frear a sua essência e esse vulcão que trás dentro do peito. Caso esteja acostumado com o superficial, dê meia volta. Ela tem sede de ser feliz, está cansada de goles, de gotas, de faíscas. Só chegue se vier ajudar a arrumar, só venha se souber lidar com uma mulher que voa. Alguns vão continuar dizendo que ela é complicada, mas a verdade é que a intensidade dela não é para qualquer um.” By @victorofern Amei esse texto e me identifiquei ✌🏼💁🏻‍♀️ . . . . . #helfylifestyle #fitnessgirl #girlspower #stayfocused #shapeyourbody #mybodymyrules #eatrealfood

+ STRUGGLE + I know that this is unimportant in the grand scheme of things right now, but I am really struggling with my body right now. Over the past year or so I have gained enough weight to make all the clothes I used to love, not fit me right. I’ve started some serious self work, doing yoga twice a day again, changing my diet...but nothing makes me feel better. I don’t see physical changes in myself, and every time I look at myself in the mirror I want to cover my eyes. I have never had such a poor relationship with my body. I have never felt so disconnected from my physical form. I have never felt so foreign, so distant from myself. This is not the first time I’ve struggled with body image, nor will it be the last. But what can I do right now? Thank my body. It’s working so hard to be it’s best self, and it’s not getting the credit it deserves. Thank you body for waking me each morning, for holding my heart, my brain, my being within you. Thank you body, for carrying me, for functioning when my mind can’t. For keeping me in stride when all I want to do is curl up and hide. You’re a good body and I’m sorry I don’t give you enough credit for all that you do. . . . . . #bodypositivity #bodyimage #workinprogress #whoami #imtrying #thistooshallpass #lifeishard #socialdistancing #mybodymyrules #itstheendoftheworldasweknowit #helloimtryingmybest #yoga #diet

Here are a couple of treats I got in my grocery store haul today. Like many I have been craving warmth and comfort in all its forms. Comic relief, reassurance, hot baths, gooey cookies. There are 165 million women in the US. My bet is at least 75% of them (low ball) are being v. hard on themselves right now about food, weight, shape and exercise. Many of us learned to eat our feelings and channel our emotional expression through both food and physicality. Since we are all having lots of feelings and stress is stupid amped we may find that we are going to the cupboard and the fridge for comfort reflexively more than is typical for us. Enter anxiety, discomfort and potentially panic when we can’t “make up for it” or “work it off” cuz gyms closed boo. This time may be revealing to you some healing work to be done around food and your body. Worthwhile work as it is possible to relate to food as both fuel AND pleasure (see photo) and not just punishment or internal proof of your discipline, your control, how good or bad you are. My soul wants pancakes damnit. And if yours does too, grab a whisk. I’m not making them not to feel, or to stuff feelings or numb out. I’m making them because I love myself, this is a stressful time #understatement and I want to immerse myself in the process of cooking and make a beautiful meal to enjoy. That’s what intuitive eating is...listening to your body and soul and giving it what it needs. Sometimes it’s pancakes. Sometimes it’s kale. And that’s where it ends. On to the next thing. Practice this as you are home in the coming days. What am I truly hungry for? Am I trying to meet an emotional need through food? How hungry am I? What sounds good? Start when you are hungry and stop when you are full, perhaps get to know those thresholds for the first time. But no matter what ladies, GO EASY❤️ > #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderawareness #intuitiveeating #selflove #heal #care #nourishyourself #antidiet #healthateverysize #mybodymychoice #mybodymyrules #goeasy #selfcompassion #begentlewithyourself

@karonhiokewass asked me to take her picture today of her yoga pose and then convinced me to try to get into the same pose. It's not much, but let me tell you, I'm way more flexible then I once was. . I'm thinking about how grateful I am to have her and my family right now. I need to shift my brain over to focusing more on the things that I am grateful for rather then the things that I can't have right now. Because while my IG stories are packed with humor ( we gotta laugh through errthang), ever day is still mentally and emotionally draining. But I have my health, and I have the people I love who are also healthy, and that is worth way more. . #quarantinethoughts #gratitude #positivityishard #FitnessMotivation #GetHealthy #YouCanDoIt #strength #life #fitnessjourney #fitnesslife #abs #happy #gains #inspiration #mybodymyrules #bodypositiveathletes #mycurvescan

I had no idea… ⁠ ⁠ My exercise routine was doing more harm than good, ⁠ ⁠ The products I was putting on my skin were filled with chemicals causing my liver to work overtime, ⁠ ⁠ And the “healthy” breakfast I was eating, might have been healing for somebody, but not my body. ⁠ ⁠ I was so focused on following the latest and greatest research and health advice from "experts" that I stopped listening to the feedback my body was giving me to determine if it even liked the healing protocol. ⁠ ⁠ Once I began listening to my body, I was able to craft a lifestyle that's completely unique to me, which has me feeling better than ever. ⁠ ⁠ Raise a hand if you listen to your body!⁠ ⁠
