Ever accidentally delete a post?? Sorry for the repost but this one is worth it! #dropitlikeitssquat crop top from @kittygains 🐈💕💪🏼
It felt so good to train lower body yesterday! It had probably been over a week since I'd lifted anything besides my fork 😂😂😂
I'm co-hosting a workshop this Sunday with @kongfuchanda at @thecommonroomphilly 🌸
We'll be exploring body image, self love, & more and we'd LOVE to have you ✨

How bout dat French toast 😍😍 I just LOVE starting my day with delicious food and with absolutely ZERO GUILT 🤗
I definitely had a fear of SUGAR, in my dieting days. I would barely allow myself to have fruit. Honestly, there was a time I didn't allow any fruit because I feared sugar that much. 🙄
Guess what else happened when I never allowed sugar? I CRAVED sugar. All day every day.
I would literally torture myself on Instagram. I would look and admire all types of delicious treats. I would say "she's lucky she can eat that and not get fat. She's lucky she has good genes. Blah blah blah" -
I finally learned, she wasn't lucky. She just wasn't FEARFUL around foods I was. She knew out to eat without fear, without guilt, without obsessive foods thoughts, rules, and restrictions. -
Unfortunately, I didn't learn how to eat this way until YEARS later. But now, I AM that woman! If you're obsessive with food and let your food fears control you, you DO NOT have to wait years to change. You can change now. You can conquer food fears NOW. If I can do it, YOU can do it 🤗💕
What food do you fear?? Or what food fear have you conquered recently?! Remember, food SHOULDNT be the boss of you 💁🏻🙌🏻💛
So tell me again what you have a problem with. Tell me again about these rules I'm breaking. Tell me about who made them up. Or why they even exist. Tell me again when I'm gonna die and what it is you say I'm glorifying. Tell me what you think about my body. Tell me that I have to dress a certain way because you don't find me attractive. Tell me that you're ashamed for me. Tell me again why I don't get to exist in the world the same way you do. Tell me again all the thoughts you have about me that I just need to know. Tell me what I should change. Tell me why you even care. Tell me about the lies you've bought in to without question that strip my agency from me. Tell me how the world works as if we don't have the power to change it. Look at me and tell me you don't value me because somewhere along the way you learned fat bodies were unnatural, broken, disgusting, all the same. Dehumanize me. And I'll stare right on back with a hip popped and a twinkle in my eye saying, "but I'm gonna change all that. Because I'm valuable, I'm worthy, I'm beautiful. Because I'm capable and passionate and determined. Because I deserve to live in a world where my body does not signify anything to you other than autonomy, respect, and an ability to live a beautiful life. Wanna fuck shit up together?!?" #bodypositivity#bopo#takingupspace#fatpositive#louisville#latergram#lbd#nobodyshame
Oh GiGi, you gorgeous beauty. The way you hug my curves and flatter all that is womanly about this body I've been granted makes me fall in love...with you, and with me. #becauseoflularoe#LuLaRoeGiGi#bopo
"Amplifying what is great within you will accelerate your life faster than fixing what you think 'limits' you."
For years I have focused on all the 'flaws' I need to fix. However, this journey has taught me to embrace my flaws and focus on what traits I already have that make me a star! .
It is amazing what you can accomplish when you stop putting yourself down and start lifting yourself up 😘.
I used to get SO anxious/nervous before work meetings at GE. 🤷🏼♀️I was shy and wouldn't speak up unless I was absolutely certain that what I wanted to say would be accurate and/or a practical solution.
Those 30 mins felt like an eternity🤦🏼♀️. Here I am, today, getting off a 2.5 hour call with my 'coworkers' and loved every minute of it!💕
My team allows me to be myself & brings out the best in me. I LOVE the days I have virtual team calls because it's a space of self love, adding value and feels like you're hanging out with your besties. Oh - and we drink coffee together.😉☕️
I woke up groggy but now I'm refreshed and ready to crush this hump day! 🐫 .
Thanks for this adorable mug, @see_sara_shine !!🍩😍
I think this is important to post. I had a few really nice message after posting my last picture and I really appreciate that, but I also think it's important to show what is real everyday! This is me. It's hard for me when people say they wish they had skin like mine or hair like mine because these photos aren't the truth. To be honest, I wish I looked like that too haha but on most days I don't. Between working multiple jobs and trying to keep my sanity, I usually don't have time for makeup and I no longer feel that I need it everyday. But as a makeup artist, don't get me wrong, I do love a good bold lip!
I truly believe we are all beautiful! No matter if you are done up or not.
Just do what makes you happy! Be nice to others! And live your best life. #beyou
The @eloquii photos are fabulous and so much fun, but they are with a professional hair and makeup artist @robvandorssen 💋💋 they are also with professional lighting and photography! I usually have frizzy hair, glasses, and most likely a few pimples. #thisisme I love fashion and photography, but remember it is fun! And so is the everyday! You are beautiful just the way you are! 😘😘😘 #nomakeup#freethepimple Thank you to my sister @jetsetheavah for our chat about this! #bewhoyou#lovewins
Last day in New York🍎 this trip has been amazing, had some nightmares but the good memories will always outweigh them. Me & @sprout_official will be back soon but as for now bring on a Disney trip & a relaxing hot holiday 🌞
Are you actively investing in your health?
Feeling sluggish, tired, gas/bloat, frequent headaches, pains of just overall blah might be the new "normal" but it doesn't mean it's how we're supposed to feel.
I've spent a good part of my life living a life in the "norm" feeling like every single day as a struggle. Leaning on pain pills & hospital expenses, only to later realize this was simply signs my body was desperately needing a little support.
When I shifted into a quest for self & health investment, and started prioritizing my health everything changed.
Those long days of feeling less than my best became less frequent. I started experiencing days where I actually felt good in my body. In turn leaving me vibrating at a whole new frequency.
Hello empowerment & freedom! How freeing would it feel to actually feel GOOD in your body?
How much differently would life feel?
How differently would you show up in your life if you actually felt energized?

Another commission came through. Thank you so much @kripakreations I LOVE it. Falling in love with myself is the best thing I have ever done. I have made a conscious effort to give myself the same love and devotion I have always given to the people around me. It's hard, because I can't hear other people's inner monologue and I can hear mine, so I sound less deserving of my love at times. But really, at the end of the day #EarthaKitt is bang on the money. #selflove#bopo
Bonus cartoon Mr Darcy being totally cool that I'm leaping into the abyss 😂😂
🌟I've got a challenge for YOU!!!🌟 I want you to look in the mirror today (I know you already do like 1367 times 😜), and I want you to say to yourself (*outloud* if possible!!) --- "I accept myself unconditionally right now." 💗
This means you recognize that you are worthy of happiness, love, respect, and every other positive thing in this life. You are worthy simply because you EXIST! 😍 You are worthy of these things regardless of the size on the tag in your jeans, regardless of your past failures, regardless of your current struggles, regardless of the number on the scale, regardless of the people who have doubted you or made you feel lesser.
YOU, my girl, are an incredible being!!! 😘❤️ And in order to have all of these positives in your life, you've got to start LOVING yourself. So do what it takes to make that happen. Start reminding yourself every time you look in the mirror that you are ENOUGH! 💕💕💕
I'm really appreciative of the IG friends/community I've cultivated here. I feel like sometimes my fellow babe friends on here care more than the ones I see from day to day. Moving back home has been a wild ride, and while I'm stoked to be back, I've realized that I no longer have the same support group that I had before. Anyway, I really appreciate all of you and if you're local I'd love to meet you! If any of my IG babes need to vent or just need someone to listen - I'm your gal. Have a great day, you're worthy and amazing. 🖤
