never felt this happy and peaceful in a long long time 🤩 ~~~~~ been feeling very productive lately with hitting my academic and life goals, but in all honesty, there has been times where everything kinda went to shit. my first setback was when i didn’t achieve my goal of receiving academic full colours, and for a long time i felt very defeated. but, it’s in those moments where you just need to get up and try again. with exams coming up, i need to shift all of my focus on giving my all. so might not be so active on this account. gotta keep thriving and grinding my friends ✨✨ you’ve gotta stay motivated and show up for your future self. just a lil cap about what’s been on my mind lately. 🤓 ~~~~~~ { #fitness #workout #gym #health #fit #fitnessmotivation #healthy #instagood #fitfam #instagram #love #motivation #bodybuilding #lifestyle #gymlife #fitnessaddict #training #life #fitnessmodel #fitspo #photooftheday #muscle #healthylifestyle #photography #strong #photo #exercise #instadaily #body #instafit }

let’s talk about balance. 💪 //// my diet or workout routine isn’t perfect. sometimes i eat shitty food or go out to town instead of getting rest or heading to the gym. but that’s the key in life — balance. there is no such thing as a ‘perfect’ day of eating or a ‘perfect’ workout because perfection does not exist. striving to achieve perfection is not only physically impossible but so emotionally draining. it’s unnecessary amount of stress and anxiety you’re putting on yourself. there’s no such thing as a perfect diet where you only eat ‘healthy’ food, just like how every workout you’re physically not going to it give your all. perfection is a very subjective matter. not every one is constructed to act or look or eat the same way. that’s why i always remind myself whenever i put to much pressure on ‘perfecting’ a workout or meal, that in the end, it’s the consistency that matters. consistency over perfection people. so yeah, miss the gym session or eat the cake. in the end it’s the habits you’ve build and the effort you’ve spent on yourself, not the occasional slip up, that matters. by maintaining a balance in life, you’ll make the journey a lot more fun. 💞 ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ { #fitness #workout #gym #health #fit #fitnessmotivation #healthy #instagood #fitfam #instagram #love #motivation #bodybuilding #lifestyle #gymlife #fitnessaddict #training #life #fitnessmodel #fitspo #photooftheday #muscle #healthylifestyle #photography #strong #photo #exercise #instadaily #body #instafit }

☁️✨🐝 big smiles bc life is kinda great rn ⠀⠀⠀⠀ not gonna lie, after posting my recent I continued my sunday afternoon with a massive anxiety bubble resting upon my heart. but, after waking up this morning, seeing the amount of support i’ve been getting really set the bar for the day. not only did i feel pretty fucking self-assured, i also felt confident enough to shoot a vid about my point of view on this entire story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ to sum it all up, whenever you support me or not, the fact that there ARE people out there that are rooting for me (whenever they’re in secret or not ) literally brings me to tears. no words could ever describe how grateful i am for this life, this mini platform and for my family. gotta radiate a positive attitude to attract good vibes in life. 🐥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ { #fitness #workout #gym #health #fit #fitnessmotivation #healthy #instagood #fitfam #instagram #love #motivation #bodybuilding #lifestyle #gymlife #fitnessaddict #training #life #fitnessmodel #fitspo #photooftheday #muscle #healthylifestyle #photography #strong #photo #exercise #instadaily #body #instafit }

🍣💞☁️✨ I am extremely proud of my journey. These past few years have had its hard moments, but it was definitely easier than the previous dark hole I’ve been stuck in. It’s not that I was seen by my peers as “ugly” or as someone who was less worthy of love because of my weight (maybe some people did view me as exactly this ). It’s the fact that I saw myself as something or someone who does not deserve any support or love. Just keep in mind, that whatever you weigh or whatever you look like, you always deserve every ounce of love and attention coming your way. But for some reason I believed that just because I took up more space than my friends, I wasn’t worthy of being happy or comfortable, and that led to me growing shy and anxious about who I allowed into my space. I never really did socialize with others, and while some did joke around with my “awkwardness”, it eventually fed this anxiety monster deep inside me. I never have and never will link my anxiety, self-esteem issues and other emotional scars I might have picked up with my weight, because that is a lie in itself. No, the direct link between my anxiety and my self-esteem issues was never my weight, but purely how I thought others viewed me. My weight loss journey was 100% as healthy as one could get. I am a strong advocate for physical and mental health. Although, I am not going to sit here and say that it was smiles and sunshine 24/7, I never harmed myself in effort of wanting to lose weight. There was periods and times where things would get tough and I would feel anxious about weight related things, but isn’t that part of human nature? To feel overwhelmed and defeated when you’re working towards a goal? Point is, I will forever be grateful for my support system I had at home, for it was for my mum, father and step-dad whom kept reminding myself that no transformation journey will ever “weigh” out the scars and hurt of an eating disorder. This is my goal with my account. I am not a nutritionist, nor personal trainer, nor professional athlete or a sport star, but what I am is just another teenage girl with a story and a purpose to help others. I would like to spread awareness that weight loss -
