Meditation and Mindfulness-who has time for thatโ‰๏ธ

I thought that too.
Then I was formally introduced to it through my yoga training with YogaFit . It was then I that I experienced and fully understood the power of it.

Studies have shown meditation can help to reduce stress and anxiety among a long list of other benefits. I think during this global health crisis, now more than ever we could all use a little help in the area of stress reduction.
So, do you have time to meditate? How about just under 2 minutes?โณ

I wrote this meditation for you. ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ

Curious about my training and continuing education around meditation and mindfulness? Hereโ€™s my list of completed learning:
- Mindfulness Practitioner course 2018
- Meditation and Mindfulness course with YogaFit 2018
- Leading yoga classes since June 2017 with guided meditation in each class.
- Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction 12-week course 2019

Superfit Hero Body Positive Fitness with Michele Burmaster Body Positive Fitness Alliance BloomFit Training Jessi Haggerty, RD The Body Positive
โ€œDiet culture sells us this idea of a โ€œdream bodyโ€ which is often so unattainable it keeps us coming back for the next thing thatโ€™ll โ€œbring us results.โ€ But when it doesnโ€™t work, we blame ourselves instead of blaming the diet.

When I was dieting and obsessing over shrinking my body, there was little space in my life for anything else. I stuffed down all my personal issues with my disordered habits and lost pieces of myself. I had no sense of what I enjoyed and convinced myself that fitness and nutrition were my passions.

I definitely had to grieve and rediscover who I was outside of my ED when I recovered. I had to make space for emotions, relationships, activities I enjoyed, but I wasnโ€™t sure where to start. That was a process, but it allowed me to focus my attention on things that actually matter rather than constantly worrying about my weight and appearance.

You canโ€™t live a full life while simultaneously willing your body to be smallerโ€”in my experience, at least, dieting and body preoccupation took up 97% of my brain space and left me little room for joy.

You may have to accept a larger body to live a larger life. But for me, Iโ€™ll take that dream life over a dream body any day of the week ๐Ÿคโ€

BloomFit Training & Real Food Matters

Shaping the next generation of Body Positive Fitness Professionals

BloomFit Training is shaping the next generation of Body Positive Fitness Professionals by starting the conversation on body image in fitness.


Fantastic post by ๐ŸŒธ Itโ€™s so important for fitness instructors to consider the impact of the language we use! Just because something is common in the industry doesnโ€™t mean it isnโ€™t harmful.

โ€œSometimes, I just want someone to guide ME in a workout and I turn to recorded stuff online. But let me tell you, it's not all fun in games when you just try to do something like a popsugar workout and ALL OF THEM are either labeled as slimming, calorie blasting OR the intro line is "join us for this 30 minute fat torching workout to get you bikini ready" โฃ
1๏ธโƒฃFirst of all, I can be bikini ready by throwing on a bikini โฃ
2๏ธโƒฃSecond, you can't promise anyone the spot reduction, societally acceptable fat loss that you're insinuating. โฃ
I am aware this is a marketing technique and I am in a space where I can handle the daily exposure to diet culture relatively well. But the truth is, some folks can't. People who are just exploring the idea of ditching diet culture may not be able to tolerate this. โฃ
And it's so pervasive or omnipresent that we don't even realize how often we are absorbing it until we actively decide not to. โฃ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ
So I hope today if you're working out, you move in a way that makes you feel strong and whole. โฃ
Happy Monday, friends โœจ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพโฃ

โ€œThe same way that dogs, pumpkins, and flowers come in ALL different shapes and sizes-humans do too, mmmk?

Sure someone might be above or below their natural set point weight range, but can we pleaseeee stop assuming that everyone in a larger body is โ€˜unhealthy,โ€™ or have a problematic relationship to food and that everyone in a smaller body is โ€˜healthy and happy.โ€™

First off, someoneโ€™s health does NOT determine their worth. Secondly, you cannot look at someone and know about their relationship to food, their health, or their mental health. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

โ€œThere is a lot of talk about healthy habits. But itโ€™s important to realize that health and weight loss are not synonymous.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Why does that matter? It means you can take care of yourself and not have it be weight you can go ahead and let that weight/body/appearance guilt go and focus on what actually matters.โ€

Strength training has so many ways that it can change the body but it can also change YOU.

Them: โ€œYouโ€™re Fatโ€
Me: โ€œthank you ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธโ€
...I wish this was how I could respond but I unfortunately tackle my own internalized fat phobia far too often.

Folks - weight stigma is real, fat phobia is real. PERIODT

There is barely a moment or any conversation that I have with a woman where she does not raise concerns on her weight, back fat, stomach pooch or whatever. So how should I feel if that person is in-fact smaller than me...

Can you imagine an existence where your every thought revolves around your body not being good enough to be seen. Your very existence questioned as though itโ€™s less than.

We can do better.

Black women are suffering, not from obesity, itโ€™s the dehumanizing affect of the overall judgemental beliefs that have been internalized and passed down for generations.

Separating weight loss from fitness would be a great place to start. For my folks who train and coach for aesthetics, I have love and respect for you. However, the perpetuation of the belief that a beautiful aesthetic is only small, thin & lean is having a devastatingly negative effect on the overall health and well-being of all those people we want to help. The belief that fitness and wellness only exists to โ€œcureโ€ obesity is hindering our humanity. Consider that please.

Together, we can do better.



Beautiful illustration and thought provoking caption by ๐ŸŒธ

โ€œIn a world that priorities looks and beauty over anything else we canโ€™t keep judging each other for trying to keep up with these standards. I have been amongst many conversations (and Iโ€™ve even done this myself) where women will judge other women for decisions they make to change their bodies or excessively edit their photos whereby they become unrecognisable. We need to stop judging peopleโ€™s actions and start opening our eyes to why people make these decisions in the first place. We have to take notice how colossally fu**ed up society is in that it has the capability to make us feel so insecure in our natural looks that we feel the need to drastically alter ourselves to simply fit in and in some cases go under surgery and potentially RISK OUR LIVES in order to be a step closer to its ideals. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿคฏ

โ€œWe are not born hating our bodies
Let that sink in....

We are not born with a natural judgemental attitude for our bodies, we are not comparing booties and tummies as little girls and we certainly donโ€™t have negative self talk daily about our external shell

So where are we learning this?
What beliefs have been embedded deep within you to make you believe your body isnโ€™t worthy?
To make you believe your fat?
To make you struggle with emotional eating?

This is the magic stuff we will focus on in body beautiful to help you understand your connection with your body and see why you have the beliefs and thoughts you do

Itโ€™s not normal for women to feel ashamed of their bodies
Itโ€™s not normal for negative self talk and avoidance of the mirror
Itโ€™s not ok to yo-yo diet because you battle with an emotional eating habit and this is the juicy stuff I will coach you through in the programme. How to turn down those loud voice and become your own body cheerleader

Body beautiful begins 5th October, if your interested in a spot DM me to secure your place now โ€

โ€œโ€˜Athleticโ€™ is not a look. Itโ€™s not an aesthetic description. Just because someone has visible abs, it doesnโ€™t necessarily mean that theyโ€™re athletic. Equally, just because someone doesnโ€™t have visible abs, it doesnโ€™t mean that theyโ€™re not athletic! If you are fit, strong and active then you are athletic according to the dictionary definition.

First of all, we need to break the habit of categorising people by body shape or appearance. Second, we need to stop idolising a slim and muscular physique as the goal for athletes. And third, you all need to go and read my latest blog post which talks about this better ๐Ÿ˜Œ Link in bio!

โ€œIf youโ€™re triggered when you hear these terms, youโ€™re hearing the sound of your own judgements and reactions, not whatโ€™s really there. โฃ
Terms like โ€œanti-diet,โ€ โ€œfat positive,โ€ and โ€œheath at every sizeโ€ trigger the heck out of people, but thatโ€™s because theyโ€™re viewing these terms through a black-and-white lens and completely missing the nuance. โฃ
You can be anti-diet, eat loads of fruits and vegetables and care about your health. Diets have been scientifically proven to only work short term and contribute to disordered eating, metabolic damage and weight gain long term, which actually makes diets themselves anti-heath. โฃ
Fat positivity is about reducing fatphobia, weight bias, and promoting unconditional self-acceptance. Itโ€™s not trying to recruit people to become fat (FYI obesity is a really problematic term). โฃ
Health at every size is an acknowledgment of the incredible weight stigma people in larger bodies face when they receive medical counsel, and strives to promote healthful behaviors and non-diet interventions for everyone no matter their size. It is not suggesting that one can be healthy at every size, rather that one can pursue health at every size without going on a diet. โฃ
Next time youโ€™re triggered, take a breath and summon all the curiosity you have. There might be more to the story than you realize, and youโ€™ll only discover that if you seek more information. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿค“โฃ

โ€œI decided today Iโ€™m finished with obsessing about whether or not my body is worthy of a particular piece of clothing. โฃ
But rather is that piece of clothing worthy of allllll this? โฃ
Like literally, concerning myself with what Iโ€™m going to wear to the gym at 5 oโ€™clock in the freaking morning. โฃ
Or what work outfit will make my stomach look smallest. (ps. if you donโ€™t know, I work with Older Adults all day who could literally give a s**t what my body looks like.)โฃ
No one actually cares what your body looks like as much as you do.โฃ
Stop spreading yourself thin on things that donโ€™t matter. โฃ
Youโ€™d accomplish so much more in a day if you spent less time worrying about what your body looks like and more time worrying about just being a better human. ๐Ÿ–คโ€


Repost from ๐ŸŒธ

โ€œTake a quick look behind you - see how far you've come.โ 
My body has changed shapes and sizes so many times. I've worked to "slim down" for years - usually in response to feeling like I don't belong or that I'm not enough. Dieting became a way for me to shave off the sharp edges and fit in with other women.โ 
Learning how to love my body as it is now in a world that tells you that you are only acceptable under a certain weight is hard. Learning how to live out loud in a world that tells you that beauty comes only from your ability to be small or delicate is also hard.โ 
But when you get out from underneath that place, you can find so much beauty in yourself, in your own body. Today, my body leads me into a job that I love working with other women trying to learn to love themselves in the same way. Grateful doesn't even begin to cover it. ๐Ÿ’œโ€


A little self-care Sunday message from .life.nutritionist ๐ŸŒธ

No matter where you are on your body acceptance journey, negative thoughts will pop up! Learning to re-frame, put things into perspective, and become less affected by negative body thoughts is so important.

Photos from BloomFit Training's post 09/18/2020

We love this series by .lovelybecoming ๐ŸŒธ

โ€œTools for body acceptance:
1. Delay body checking: distract yourself and see if the urge decreases.
2. Practice writing down or saying daily neutral (or grateful) statements about each part of your body.
3. Affirmations (even when you donโ€™t yet believe them): โ€œmy body is goodโ€ โ€œmy body is my ownโ€ โ€œI can wear clothes that fit me and feel comfortableโ€ โ€œmy body was never badโ€
4. Diversify your feed: human = body diversity, and this is beautiful! Look at different body types than that which society perpetuates as โ€œthe normโ€. Your body is good and right and normal because it is.
5. Interrupt and challenge negative thoughts about your body: push back on that voice that says youโ€™re gross or ugly or not enough: talk back fiercely: I am enough, my body is good and right and whole.
6. Practice showing up in your body when you donโ€™t feel good about it; prove to yourself that you can withstand the discomfort. This is such a good exposure, to show up each day. This is vulnerability: being present with others and trusting that your body is not a hindrance to love and connection.
7. Remember, it took years to learn that your body was bad; it takes time to learn how to accept it again: loads of self-compassion!!!

Body inclusivity has no size limit ๐ŸŒธ

People of all sizes deserve to have access to athletic apparel, workout equipment, and fitness services, and movement practices.

This is the reality we envision for the fitness industry. Unfortunately, this isnโ€™t the reality for most of the fitness industry right now. We have a lot of work to do.

But if you are reading this post, chances are you are one of the amazing people dedicated to making fitness more inclusive to people of all sizes. Weโ€™re so happy you are here!

Get some movement in this weekend only because itโ€™s going to be gorgeous out, not because you feel you have to to earn your calories or look a certain way in your swimsuit. Soak up some sun, get your rest {or your in} and know that whatever happens will NOT affect you and your goals but will actually help you achieve them in the long run! โ€

Timeline photos 08/31/2020

This is such a great question posed by ๐ŸŒธ

We desire weight loss because of the way Diet Culture assigns meaning and morality to body size.

When working towards body acceptance and pursing a weight neutral approach to health and fitness, we have to look beyond the weight loss goals and figure out what we actually desire.

What meaning does weight loss have to us? To our clients? What do we think we would gain from losing weight? Is there way way to make THAT the priority instead of body size?

โ€œHey beautiful, this is post is for you.

Whatever size you are, you are enough.

I donโ€™t care if you have ten rolls on your stomach or zero, you should be able to workout on your front porch in your sports bra if you want to.

Society has formed this belief that only skinny people can show their stomach. Societyโ€™s definition of beauty is thin and trim.

Well society, you can suck it.

I am tired of being bullied and shamed for my size. Iโ€™m not pregnant. I have fat. I am beautiful. My stomach has rolls. My legs have rolls. And FYI, it doesnโ€™t matter if this is a before or after shot of me. Itโ€™s a picture of me working out on my front porch in whatever clothes I want to wear doing whatever I damn well please. I donโ€™t need your permission and either does anyone else.โ€
