Even though it’s rest day I still want to do some type of exercise! I don’t think my body is changing at all😔 I love #blogilates bc it’s so fun, but I just hope it’s all in my head. I start the last week of it tomorrow and to the regular calendar I go😁👊💪✊✌️

But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.

This is what rape culture looks like.

This is what misogyny looks like.

Yoga poses for better balance

Balance poses challenge and strengthen the ankles, knees and pelvis in standing poses, the wrists, elbows and shoulders in poses that are dependent for these to balance.

Mentally, balance poses challenge our self-image, help us find courage and help us let go - especially of our image of what we can or cannot do! 
Remember to have fun falling, trust yourself and don’t judge or criticize yourself. You are where you are and that is precisely where you are supposed to be :) 

All comments or questions are as always warmly welcomed.

Lots of love and light

Namaste

If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

Every time I do a new progress shot my mind gets blown all over again. Can’t believe how far I have some.  I still find it hard to believe that I was that first girl but photos don’t lie! 43 kilos difference between the two and I’m not done yet.  Before 132.5 kgs. During 89.7 kgs.
Big things happening with to 10 week challenge I’ve signed up for at my gym including morning HIIT and tightening up my diet.  Feeling so good!  Fitness test tomorrow. Scared but excited!
