A topic I want to talk about in this post is about having a workout buddy. To draw the situation this is Daniele, my boyfriend’s best friend, who has a fulltime job and is doing really great in his journey! After waking up early in the morning, working all day, coming home, preparing a healthy dinner, doing the dishes, cleaning up, etcetera it’s MUCH easier and appealing to plop down in the couch instead of going for a run. Having a workout buddy or someone you regularly work out with makes it more difficult talk yourself out of it.
Sooo I’ve listed some advantages of having a workout buddy 👭👯👫💯
▪️you’ll actually show up ▪️you can build up routine ▪️you’ll be more motivated ▪️you’ll push yourself harder (we’re naturally competitive in a good way) ▪️you’ll meet your goals faster ▪️you’ll enjoy your workout more
Did I forget something?
There’s no reason not to prioritize your health, no matter how busy you are. Find ways, schedule, plan because being healthy and active is a win-win. It gives you more energy, so you can be more productive, feel great and have more of everything in life.
Tag your workout buddy and mention why they are important or an added value in YOUR journey. Let’s show some love to all the workout buddy’s all over the world. YOU’RE AWESOME! 👯

Think about that for a moment. People sparkle and shine when things are going well for them. They are bright and full of color, basking in the light of the sun. However, when it is dark out, when things are going badly, only those with a light within themselves will show their true beauty. The others, while still there, are nowhere near as beautiful, as their light has gone dim. By keeping our light on, we help to strengthen ourselves and others. Not by trickery or by pretending that nothing is wrong, but by being a light for others despite what is going on in our lives. We become an example of perseverance and strength to others who might be having doubts. Those with an inner light are like lighthouses to those who are lost in the darkness. That light helps to reassure them that things are alright, or that they can be endured. That light helps them find their way, and guides them towards their goals. That light can be a life saver, or a comfort in their final days. And by keeping our own light on, we can also comfort ourselves. We can remind ourselves of our own strength, and our own will to continue, even when things seem particularly dark. Sometimes this can be the most important reason of all to keep our inner light burning brightly. -Unknown
Ever sat on the floor like the right photo, looked down at your belly & thought 'yuk'? 🙋🏼
I have... a million times. But over the past year, with the help of Instagram & 'the real talk' I've learnt it's actually completely & utterly normal.
As the gorge goddess @imrececen stated, very very wisely... you are beautiful no matter what 💃🏼 We all get sucked into the trap of wanting to 'look good' but do we ever stop & think... will it actually make me a better person? Will my friends love me more if I've got a six pack? Will I get promoted at work if I've got a thigh gap? There's a difference between looking good & feeling good. Working out should make you feel like a better person, it should make you feel like a superhero, it should make you appreciate your body more & therefore make you want to take care of yourself.
I train super hard because I absolutely love it, I lift weights because it makes me feel strong & I take the time to look after myself... but I still have a tum when I sit down. That tum ain't going nowhere, no matter how hard I work, sweat & train. You can choose how you feel, you have the power to think positively so let's say goodbye to all of those negative words you call yourself & hello to feeling proud of your body 💛

Things I don't need in my life: complacency, liars, negativity, meat, and fake people.
Things I do need in my life: spiritual/physical/mental growth, positivity, veggie food, and people who make my life better. Oh, and maybe the beach too. #realtalk

somedays i think if sadness is a choice. i mean of course if it was everyone would choose to be happy. who wants to be sad? who wants to feel sad? everyone wants happiness, it's something that everyone long for. happiness is a beautiful emotion that everyone wants to live with. sadness seems like something that everyone wishes to escape.
but maybe sadness is inevitable, it's not something that we can control. and it's okay to feel sad. it's okay to feel like you want to give up on certain days. yes sadness isn't a choice, even if it was no one would choose it. i try to be happy, i try to look at the positive side of everything, but i'm human and i can't always do that. and i have accepted the fact that it's okay.
people express their sadness in different ways, i myself have never been good at expressing my feelings. i have never been good at the term "feelings". i struggle at expressing what i feel, somedays i can't seem to differentiate between frustration or being sad or wanting to be alone or anger. i often don't know how to deal with it, i usually try to ignore it or indulge myself in something different. and as the human nature i tend to get distracted and i feel better for sometime. but the thing is, you can't escape this feeling forever. maybe a day or so but then next night it will hit you. or maybe next morning when you wake up expecting the day to be good, it will come back, but i promise this sadness is temporary.
but maybe sadness isn't a bad thing. maybe it's prove that no matter how strong we are, we're all ultimately humans and we all go through feelings. maybe it's a reminder that we love each other and we long for each other.
my point is no one wants to be sad, no one likes to be sad. but it's okay to have these days, it's okay to go through rough time. and i'm learning to accept this fact, i'm learning that sadness is a part of us growing. i'm a happy person at least i hope i'm, if not today then maybe tomorrow. this thing called sadness is temporary and we all can try and accept the fact that there are few things that we can't really avoid or choose but that's fine. but one day, maybe tomorrow won't be sad day (via @110years on ig)

i. I have found myself on the kitchen floor of my best friends apartment, lost in a bottle of vodka. Surrounded by underaged sinners, only living for these moments where we forget what’s it like to be alive.
ii. I have made mistakes I can’t even forgive, and sometimes the word spreads. Once when I let another one down, the rumors started to start, and I sat on my bed knowing I couldn’t run fast enough this time. That was the day I stoped wishing for a new life, and the day I wished it just to end.
iii. I watched the clouds move across a night sky I would never reach, while a boy who never knew me asked me to devote my soul to him, and I wrote the word NO in angry red lines but I whispered yes under my breath. He sunk his teeth in eagerly, and I let him.
