Last night I had what felt like a major setback in recovery. I’m reminded that recovery is not a linear process, I can make different choices today, and I don’t need to let emotion dictate my actions. I’m accepting the shame, fear, guilt, sadness, anger, anxiety and everything else I may be feeling, and I won’t let those feelings change the fact that...
✨I talked to two people I trust about what happened, even though my ED told me to suffer in silence. I gave a voice to the “dirty secret”, and I was in return given compassion, love, support, understanding, and advice about next steps.
✨I’m showing up for work even though it’s the last thing I want to do. I’m following through on commitments and acknowledging that’s progress.
✨I’m seeking human connection even though I want to isolate. I will step outside my own struggles and check-in with others today.
✨I will not punish myself today. This is the hardest part. I will choose self-compassion not self-criticism. I will remind myself of what truly matters (see pic above :)

A few quick wise words now that the Open is here #crossfitopen2018
This can be a really competitive time, especially for most. But, I just want you to remember all the hard work that you put in all year is now coming to a test. Not only to test where you are in a work out, but a test where you are in your mental game. Mentally it is so important to practice the thoughts that you are good enough. You do you and that’s all that matters. It doesn’t matter what the person next to you is doing, it doesn’t matter if they’re better at movement than you are, it doesn’t matter if they finish the work out before you. All that matters is that you gave it your 100% and there’s no looking back with regrets. Cheer on your mates and recognize them for their efforts because that’s what good people do and you are a good person. Be a part of a community where you can showcase your love and kindness for one another and celebrate many firsts. Practise being the better version of yourself because everyone is showing up.
Good luck everyone for this years Crossfit Open! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 #beabetterversionofyou#keepitreal#workhard#playhard#beyou#doyou#beexcited#community#pr#mentalstrength#showup ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ photo by @karenmcphotog
What’s that area you don’t like about yourself? For me, it has always been the tops of my thighs... you know, that EXACT place most shorts end? Yeah. So, what has been my solution? Never wear shorts. .
Sounds crazy, right?
But, that’s what I did for YEARS. Pants, capris, skirts, but never shorts. .
As I started training differently, both mentally and physically, I realized that when you gain PHYSICAL strength, you start to SEE yourself differently, too. I still don’t wear shorts very often, but I finally DO own a few pairs. 😉 It has taken a LONG time to start to accept my body. I think we all struggle with that in some form or another. But we are ALL FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE!!! 🙌🏻 God don’t make no junk, and that includes those upper thighs. 😉 Those legs have carried me through countless workouts, 20 half marathons and 4 fulls. I may not be a shorts person, but I am a totally BLESSED person, and I’m thankful that God keeps reminding me of that!!! .
Who has the right to determine what is right & what is wrong, what is more and what is less?
Judgement is not loving.
We’re twisting, stretching in so many directions in life, while we’re still trying to stay tall, breathing deep, staying true to ourselves.
Did you ever experienced that someone close to you tells you „Why do you act like that? That’s not you!“... happened to me when I was getting so much more comfortable with myself then ever before. When I felt like I finally got to my true self. When I felt so free & good about myself. .....And then there’s someone, who’s opinion matters to you, that tells you the opposite.
Bummer! What to do now?
As long as you feel good about however you changed, stay on your path. Sometimes getting rid of old sheaths of your identity is a lonely process. Especially when you feel insecure about it because it’s so new. It’s like a little 🌱
Give it time. Water it. Give it enough light & love. Be patient with the growth. It’ll get stronger & more resilient.
And rethink, next time you judge someone how he/she is supposed to act or be, if it is really on you to make this decision.
Let people be who they are. The only job we have as friends is supporting our tribe in becoming who they want to be. Helping them grow & getting stronger, making their dreams a reality & be there for open Feedback but never to judge whether something is good or bad.
It is hard. I’m currently trying to eliminate judgement & it’s so hard! It’s part of our language & society to determine right & wrong, much & less and so much more... but it’s so freeing to bring awareness to that!
Make it a judgement free day! 💋😃
When someone lands on your social media, you have about three seconds to capture them. (That's not scientific. In fact, I'd say science would probably show fewer than 3 seconds.) Yes, of course you need engaging content to do that. But, beyond that, you need a profile that's going to sing. ⠀
Why? Well, with all the crazy algorithm adjustments happening every day, if someone miraculously takes the time to click on your face/avatar/logo to learn more about you, you've got to make sure your profile is as captivating as your content. ⠀
So make sure you're consistently branding your profile photo across platforms and really working on that short bio--about 160 characters on most platforms. ⠀
Don’t resist change. Change is good it often comes disguised as a painful experience but more often than not 6 months later you’ll look back and say thank f**k that happened cos I wouldn’t be where I am now ✨
What I love MOST about this picture is how happy my friend is! Sure, it’s because she has reached some goals...but you know how she has done that?? She COMES...she shows up and is present for HERSELF for 1 hour EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. (That’s only 4% of her day!) She is an amazing momma of 2 and teacher of MANY, but she approaches her day with an important decision - designate time every single day to focus on her HEALTH. Good health is ultimately what is going to keep your body fine tuned and running! When our health struggles, so does everything else. It’s not selfish - it’s smart! #youareimportanttoo#doitforyou#goamber#showup#bepresentforyourlife
Cacao skal mærkes.
Cacao åbner hjertet og giver dig adgang til dyb healing og dyb visdom. En visdom, der allerede er tilgængelig i dig, som cacaoen giver dig mulighed for at tappe ind i 🙏🏻 At forsøge at forstå det med hovedet er umuligt.
Jeg har prøvet.
For hvordan kan cacao skabe så dyb healing og transformation - langt dybere end at gå til psykolog eller andre behandlere? Jeg forstår det ikke med hovedet, men jeg ved det er muligt, for jeg har mærket det med hjertet og resten af kroppen ❤️ Cacao er plantemedicin, der arbejder med krop, sind og sjæl på samme tid.
Det eneste du skal er, at overgive dig.
Tillade cacaoen at sprede sig ud til alle dine celler.
Mærke. Lytte. Acceptere.
Mere simpelt bliver det ikke. Du skal blot møde op ❤️ I dyb taknemmelighed for denne vidunderlige medicin 🙏🏻 ❤️✨ Lucia ✨❤️
Wisdom Conceived Wednesday #27 :
Live each day with purpose and intention. Reach beyond what you believe you’re capable of. Do the things you fear the most. Meet new people and invest in established friendships.
Life is meant to be lived with passion and purpose. Find that purpose and go after it with all you got.
Mad 💚 for you all!
