Another day, another 50 rocking push-ups, day 5 of our 30 day challenge. This morning I tried a variation on rocking push-ups that @womenscalisthenics suggested and once I got the hang of it, I had to replicate with a water cup balance. 😊 Hope you're all having a good day! . . . . #weightloss #motivation #inspiration #exercise #noexcuses #improvement #selfimprovement #fitness #fattofit #fitover40 #fitfam #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #anxiety #depression #weightlosstransformation #traumaticbraininjury #tbi #clinicaldepression #pushups
TOTES EMOSH Today was Trixie’s 12 month review and she smashed it. She’s either bang on or ahead in everything. Once her section of the check was done, conversation turned to me. I broke down. I let out what I didn’t know I’d been bottling up. She’s referring me for counselling, I’m ready for talk therapy. The first pic is us on our way home afterwards. Thank goodness for wraps, they make everything better! The rest of the day was spent just me and Trixie at home chilling out. I napped when she did, and tried my best not to eat my feelings. She woke up and we just chilled out, letting her roam around doing what she wanted. I also managed to make a couple of videos with her which I’ve been wanting to do for ages so that was great. I would have made more but she loves being up so much that she had a meltdown whenever I took her down to do the next one and I couldn’t stand it. We got Dexter from nursery and back home they played and ate until bedtime. My mood hasn’t lifted from this morning, and I’m exhausted as a result. I reckon it’s triggered by my giving up caffeine, but we’ll see.

🍯🍯🍯🍯🍯🍯🍯 Its a beautiful story, a beautiful world, and they made it into a beautiful movie. Eeyore is my favourite character (and literally such a big MOOD) and I love the child-like acceptance everyone in the Hundred Acre Wood has for him. As a kid I loved relating to Eeyore 💛💙 #christopherrobinmovie #favouritemovie #doingitright . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #winniethepooh #poohbear #christopherrobin #movie #eeyore #christopherrobinmovie 🍯 #eeyoreismyspiritanimal #ilovewinniethepooh #hundredacrewoods #hundredacrewood #eeyoreisamood #bigmood #mood #depressed #depression #eeyoreisdepressed #clinicaldepression #mentalhealth #favouritecharacter #myfavouritecharacter #acceptance #childlikeacceptance #childlike #beautiful #childrensbook #amazing
Clinging to hope when life is heavy. It was that kind of week. Some moments my hold of His robe was gone, and all I could do was to let Him hold me there. Dear ones, He does this very well. The world can be smothering. The accumulated pain + suffering in our own lives + in the lives of those we love can simply feel too heavy. Bearing the weight of all of it threatens to crush our souls if we don’t find refuge. I spent much of the week on the couch with this view, seeking refuge some moments, trying in my own strength others. And let me testify, the former is much much sweeter (not to mention more effective.) It is a blessed release to find our refuge, solace, and peace in the only One capable of holding us + the world all at once. With such grace. Some weeks it is a blessed relief to arrive at the end + then to realize you survived. You were held + you were sustained. Some weeks end more hopeful than they began. And I’m thankful for this - this hoping when life is heavy. Hoping as HE holds. 🌻🌻 { Faint not nor fear, His arms are near, He changeth not, and thou art dear; Only believe and thou shalt see, That Christ is all in all to thee. } Spurgeon
Ended my workout this morning with some balance work, going from splits (or as low as I can get) to crow to rocking push-up to Starfish with a cup of water balance element, inspired by exercises I've seen @theconstantathlete do this week. Did it once straight up and once with a blindfold! Video sped up x2. . . . . #weightloss #motivation #inspiration #exercise #noexcuses #improvement #selfimprovement #fitness #fattofit #fitover40 #fitfam #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #anxiety #depression #weightlosstransformation #traumaticbraininjury #tbi #clinicaldepression #yoga #calisthenics #pushups #balance #strongertogether #flexible #blindflow
Some headstand poses for @theconstantathlete and the others joining in, with a funny misunderstanding. I asked Julie to check one of my poses and she told me to adjust my front leg, meaning the leg in front of me. But I was confused and thinking "depending on what I'm doing, they're both my front legs, aren't they? Wait, is my front leg the one I lead with when I walk?" I may overthink things some times. 😂 . . . . #weightloss #motivation #inspiration #exercise #noexcuses #improvement #selfimprovement #fitness #fattofit #fitover40 #fitfam #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #anxiety #depression #weightlosstransformation #traumaticbraininjury #tbi #clinicaldepression #calisthenics #headstand
A few years ago I lost 20lbs in less then a month because I was in a toxic and emotionally abusive relationship for 3 years. It put me in my worst depression I’ve ever had in my life (and I was diagnosed with depression when I was 9 years old.) It got worse and worse during the relationship. I was so depressed and in so much pain I had no appetite. I got down to 80lbs. I was so sick and underweight I stopped getting my period, I could barely think it felt like my brain wasn’t working, I was dizzy and lightheaded, I had no short term memory whatsoever, was losing some of my hair and was almost passing out all the time. I cried all night every night, with a slew of other symptoms. I was my most depressed and always having suicidal thoughts the whole relationship. I even ended up in a 72hr hold in psychiatric center from my abusive ex for suicidal plans. After finally breaking up with my abusive ex girlfriend, and leaving her emotionally abusive family. I gained my weight back, and got healthy. Toxic relationships are so dangerous and you deserve better then that. Always remember. I love you and am here for anyone going through that. You may not think you can get out, I couldn’t do it for years. But you can. When I finally did it was the best decision I ever made. I’m going to make a bunch of tags on this post because I want you to be able to see my post so you can see you can make it out of abusive relationships. (Ps that’s dirt on my mirror) speaking of mental health shoutout to @eugeniacooney so proud of her #bodyimage #selfimage #abusiverelationship #emotionalabuse #seekhelp #psychiatrichospital #mentalhospital #psychward #depression #anxiety #selfharm #mentalhealth #mentalhealthstigma #suicidial #suicidalthoughts #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #80lbs #100lbs #anorexia #symptoms #eatingdisorder #symptoms #reachout #youarenotalone #clinicaldepression #insomnia #dying #sick #ptsd #gethealthy #gym
I'll call these Cracklin' Rosies, as they are Rocking Diamonds. 😉 These go out to @teamgetright2k16 who inspired me to do them. And if you understood my joke, there's a better than average chance you're part of my "fit over forty" crew. 😂 . . . . #weightloss #motivation #inspiration #exercise #noexcuses #improvement #selfimprovement #fitness #fattofit #fitover40 #fitfam #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #anxiety #depression #weightlosstransformation #traumaticbraininjury #tbi #clinicaldepression #calisthenics #pushups #strongertogether
Thanks to @lifting_lake_law_girl for the inspiration on this one! I didn't have a yoga block, so my $3 thrift store Domokun ball will have to do. 😊 Took me a second to figure it out, but once I started going slower I felt that burn. So much harder than I thought it would be! If you don't following @lifting_lake_law_girl , you should be. Oh boy. I just saw that typo. Why am I typing this instead of correcting it? Oh well, as Bob Ross says, there are no mistakes, only happy acccidents! Happy Sunday my friends! Let's move! . . . . #weightloss #motivation #inspiration #exercise #noexcuses #improvement #selfimprovement #fitness #fattofit #fitover40 #fitfam #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #anxiety #depression #weightlosstransformation #traumaticbraininjury #tbi #clinicaldepression #calisthenics #core #abs #domokun #strongertogether
A few of you have sent me messages asking how things are going with me, and that makes me feel so good! Art lovers are some of the best humans ever. Thank you. The good news is that I have gone a week straight without any major depression, and that has been lovely! I'm still struggling with some bouts of paralyzing fear that has to do with living out this life on my own. I'm trying to keep my brain in check and remind myself that I've taken care of myself thus far, so I need to stop worrying and keep working. Anyone who has experienced clinical depression knows this is easier said than done! The brain is powerful force. Though I've read it before, I'm currently listening to the audiobook of all Van Goghs letters to his brother. His thoughts are tragic and beautiful. I'm comforted by his insights. Now, if I could only start making some decent paintings again .. things might get back on track! #depression #clinicaldepression #fight depression
I was doing yesterday's set of 50 rocking push-ups for a challenge I joined with @theconstantathlete and @sunboundyoga and wanted to keep playing with the idea, so I tried as many variations as I could. This is a compilation of the variations I came up with. I've really been getting into this challenge and I've seen @teamgetright2k16 @lifting_lake_law_girl @wwkrissymoves also joining in, which is awesome. Shout out to @theconstantathlete and @womenscalisthenics for recent encouragement and support when I really needed it. I haven't felt up for challenges recently but they inspired me to push myself to get back in gear and it's really helped. Feeling positive and upbeat and ready to conquer the world. Who's with me?! I believe in you! I believe in US! We are stronger together and we can do this! Let's go! . . . . #weightloss #motivation #inspiration #exercise #noexcuses #improvement #selfimprovement #fitness #fattofit #fitover40 #fitfam #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #anxiety #depression #weightlosstransformation #traumaticbraininjury #tbi #clinicaldepression #calisthenics #pushups
You know your mind is currently in a better place when the thought of actually writing in a journal no longer adds to your slump. OK, i'm going in 🙂#clinicaldepression #depression #mindfulness #mentalhealth #anxiety
