THE HARDEST PART ABOUT MOVING FORWARD - Is not looking back. // The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.” ... THIS IS MY CURRENT STRUGGLE, and I believe that with God, with the Word, guidance by my Therapist (yes, I see a 'shrink' - I believe that Everyone should receive outside help when they need it) and support by my loved ones and amazing Husband - I will overcome and be a VICTOR! I'm no longer ashamed. I'm a Survivor. I'm Free. #NoLongerAVictim #ThisIsHowIFightMyBattles #PrayerWarrior #FaithLikeRoastPotatoes #KingdomMinded #RapeSurvivor #Overcomer #GenderBasedViolence #RapeAwareness #AbuseAwareness #MentalHealthAwareness #ChangeTheStigma

When you look in the mirror what do you see? I use to see a girl that was ugly. I use to see a girl that was unhappy. I use to see a girl that was ashamed. I use to see a girl that was put last. I use to see a girl that lacked energy. I use to see a girl that used excuses. I use to see a girl that was a victim. I use to see a girl that lacked motivation. Now when I look in the mirror I see a totally different person who is beautiful both inside and out! I was lost pretending to be someone I wasn't. I was looking for approval from others to live MY life. That just seemed so wrong. I have been on my journey for going on 3 years and I am still learning new things about myself. This isn't a quick fix by any means. This is a life style change. I will never look back at the person I was. I will only look forward to the future. Its never too late to get started on a journey to a better you! Ps I am making it work at home given the situation but I really miss the gym! 😭 and a huge thank you to everyone who has reached out asking about my journey during this time! I am just adapting to the circumstances I am given ❤️ #notwhoiusetobe #nolongerunhappy #notputlastamymore #beautifulinsideandout #nolongerashamed #nolongeravictim #notseekingapproval #justbeingme #livingmylife #beingthebest #nevertolate #discoverwhoyoureallyare #donthidebehindyourfears #justdoyou #workingoutismytherepy #anxietyisreal #moveyourbody #getupandmove #imissthegym #makingthemostofit #stoppretending

They say that nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors, but I’m about to change that! If you could go behind-the-scenes and get a trailer view of my life, you’d see that my story was shaping me until just a few years back. Since 2014, so much has changed, and I feel that I am living to my full potential. And the best thing? I spread that to all the lives that I get the honor to help transform through Yoga Therapy. Today, I see that Life is what I make of it, and not the other way around. What does life look like behind your door? . . . . #holisticfitness #mentalhealthtoronto #torontomindfulness #torontowellness #wellnesswarrior #depressionsupport #overcominganxiety #traumarecovery #nolongeravictim #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #fibrowarrior #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillnesswarrior #findyourvoice #happymindhappylife

These at home workouts are making you anxious. They don't have everything you "need" in order to have the best session. Lights Weights Machines Bands Set up Music level Mirrors Etc. And now, more than ever, you're ready to shift that. You want to be a flexible, adaptable athlete and human. And this is showing the glaring truth that you aren't. You're anxious, heart racing, can't catch your breath, stuck in place and numbing out with food and watching people online with an at-home gym, making you feel even more less than because you just have empty space and a few things. Your health is SO much more mental than physical. You've got all the knowledge, you know what to do. Now it's all about getting comfortable with this discomfort and making the decision that you are CHOOSING to do this. Make it your own. And work through it. And here is where I come in to fully support you, validate what you're feeling and helping you get past this. We heal the hurt you've been causing yourself for years and create some balance and undersranding of it. Then we create the habits, the structure you crave, while making you the one in change. Where you walk away, confident that you KNOW what to do and it's always the best choice for you. So if you're ready for the support you've been looking for but can't seem to find, let's set up a coffee date and talk about how that can look for you. Private spots OPEN!

Mindless eating isn't just a "stop it! But here's a healthier option for you!😉" THIS WON'T HELP!!! This is just silencing and numbing out of the real problem. You. Not your inability to say no. Not your victim status to your emotions. Not your mindless numbing out while the world seems to spiral around you. This is about you on a deep level. How you view yourself. How you feel the need to earn the good in life. How you feel you'll only be loved when your butt is as big and waist as tiny as Instagram. YOU DON'T HAVE TO!!! It's time to start looking at your cravings around food and lack of motivation in the gym directly to solve the problem. Not just putting another bandaid over it and lengthening the problem even more. That's what these healthier options to your binge, your go-to, your mindless eating snacks is for. A bandaid, to remind you that there really isn't an answer to this "problem" you have. But there is! And it's simpler than you want it to be. Because I was the one finding healthier options and explaining away my cravings, silencing what was really going on. But it's NOT about the food. It's how you view it and your own self worth FOR it. And I help you change that. From the deep soul level, in order to build a stronger foundation for Life to grow on. It's everything I craved and Googled and looked for but could never find. And I don't want you to wanter through this change alone. I'll be here today, tomorrow and every day after. Because this is a change the world needs. And if you want some personal support through it, I'd love to talk more with you.😊 PS. This is a cupcake, not a healthy protein packed one, and not an ounce of regret either.

There's nothing wrong with you. Gluten intolerance Thyroid issue Anorexia Binge eating Bigorexia Dairy Intolerance Bulimia Avoidance and restriction Chemical imbalance Anxiety Depression Dyslexia Body Dysmorphia Or whatever else you think is wrong with you; the answer as to why you feel broken. Just because you may never get the diagnosis you need to feel validated, doesn't mean what you're struggling with doesn't exist. And just because you have the diagnosis, doesn't mean that defines you as a person or your ability to move forward with life. Your cravings for food and your lack of motivation in the gym is the effect of a much deeper problem. It is in the cause of your stagnant progress and lack of weight loss. It's the effect of something more. So looking at that and working through it instead of just putting a band-aid and forcing past it, is going to bring so many more results than if you just would keep going and doing what you're doing. Believe me, I chased a cause, a name to all my issues, lacks and failures for years. Because I was eating next to nothing, training for hours a day, doing everything people said successful people do and then some, and still was falling short. Until the day I left a learning center, praying for a name to my hours of failure and stress and still got nothing. That day I decided: Whether I have a diagnosible problem or not, I'm still me. Nothing about that will change. I have big things I want to do in this world and, I'm happy with who I am. That, the permission I gave MYSELF, was a weight lifted I only thought someone else could give me. But no. You have that power first. Give yourself permission and grace for being human first, and then everything else will start to fall into place.

How I changed my blind commitment to bodybuilding. If any of you know me from high school, I was always the workout girl. The one doing early morning classes and more consistent than the guys. That was when I found my parents old bodybuilding photos and they got me started with the basics in the gym. I decided I wanted to do a show and thought it was a good excuse to lose the weight that made me feel less of an athlete than I really was. This was the start of my passion and love for the gym. At home, I saw balance with family and friends; never did a show, but knew I was the "go to" person for all things gym and food related. But once college came, I was more alone and dove nose deep into bodybuilding, weight loss, aesthetics and perfection, which took a very self destructive turn. I realized, just as I'm writting this, that my view and approach to weightloss perfection and the chiseled body of my dreams, was very cultish looking back. It is NOT normal to chew gum to silence hunger pains. It is NOT normal to punish yourself with cardio for over eating. It is NOT normal to fear restaurants because you don't know the exact macros and preparation of your meal. It is NOT normal to tie your worth to a certain size jeans. And it is NOT normal to spend 30 minutes before jumping into the shower, pulling, poking, posing and taking inventory of every imperfection and cause for hate on your body. But I was commited and no one would tell me otherwise. I had big goals and no one doubted I could accomplish them...except me. The thing that changed it was me looking up eating videos, to silence my own starvation, and saw someone else living, surviving, and looking good eating and doing life differently than me. That's all it took to spark the deep dive and knowledge intake of "more than one way to live life". And this process, physical and psychological is why I created my year long Life Program. Because I saw everyone else's version and belief doing change, but (people pleaser at heart) didn't know which one was best. I wanted support and a listening ear when I didn't feel I could talk to a friend and have them understand and just listen. (Just a bit more👇👇)

For most people, it’s easy to answer, “Hey, where did you grow up?”⁣ ⁣ Not so for Benjamin Risha. ⁣ ⁣ Cult leaders arranged for his mother, a woman of Jewish descent, and his father, of Lebanese descent, to be married. Their marriage - and Benjamin’s birth - was supposed to be a sign of peace between Arabs and Jews.⁣ ⁣ As a result, Benjamin spent most of his childhood as the favored "adopted" son of the cult leaders. He lived in luxury in a mansion, rode around in limousines, and traveled all while wearing expensive clothes. ⁣ ⁣ What Benjamin 𝘥𝘪𝘥𝘯’𝘵 have? Knowledge of his biological mother, who had escaped ‘The Church’ when he was six months old. In her stead, Benjamin was raised by seven mothers throughout his adolescent years. ⁣ ⁣ As Benjamin and his friends came of age, they were punished for their innate curiosity about the opposite sex and Benjamin regularly saw others abused, beaten, and kicked out of their community. But everything changed when the US government seized The Church's assets and Benjamin got a glimpse of the world beyond his community for the first time. ⁣ ⁣ And after he learned about his parents' identities and whereabouts, Benjamin was able to make a daring escape.⁣ ⁣ We discuss all of this and more in this week’s episode of And Then Everything Changed. So be sure to stream episode 20 on your favorite podcasting platform, and then leave a comment below letting me know what insights you’re taking away from this episode. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #podcastinglife #healingfromtrauma #mysurvivalstory #personalgrowthjourney #familytrauma #traumasurvivor #abusesurvivor #starttheconversation #inspireyou #lifeaftertrauma #childhoodtrauma #podcastshow #itstartswithyou #havecourage #ptsdsurvivor #adversechildhoodexperiences #motivationtuesday #courageousliving #itgetsbetter #healingtrauma #couragetochange #posttraumaticgrowth #findinghappiness #tuneinnow #traumarecovery #believesurvivors #daregreatly #nolongeravictim #couragetorise #inspirer

I can't count how many times I've felt like a complete outcast, abnormal, a crazy person, weirdo... Whatever word I could think of when my symptoms rear up or I have a triggeeing experience. Having those around remind me that I'm not broken, or weird, or whatever is so important.

“I ate an entire jar of peanut butter after my competition.” Do you want to know how many people who compete, have “goal” bodies and are promoting this healthy lifestyle have this in common? FAR. TOO. MANY. Why? Because they’ve been living in deprivation for months. They call certain foods good and others bad. They earn their food rather than accept it as a basic human right. And I’ve seen FAR too many of them fall away and go into hiding for months or even years as they work through their life silently. Because they fell into burn out. They created a health issue that they needed to deal with. They strained relationships that had unhealthy eating habits at the center of. And all because they lost themselves and the real reason they wanted to start exercising and losing weight in the first place. That is not what I want for you. Because I’ve been there and I caught myself before it got too bad. I posted all the mirror selfies just like everyone else. I used all the hashtags and looked up #fitspiration just to find motivation, when in reality it only fed my delusion, worsened my deprivation and validated all the wrong I was doing to myself. Just because others are doing it doesn’t mean it’s healthy. And honestly, when have you EVER wanted to be like everyone else? Seriously? You’re here to make waves. To create your own path. And you’re following what OTHERS are doing? If you’re looking for change, that right there is where you start. Looking and no longer settling. Isn’t it time you started carving your own path? But I'm curious? Anyone else relate to this, because I TOTALLY did this at the height of my deprivation and horrible relationship of food, my body and just my being as a whole. Not a fun place to be.

You're in the fitness "community" but feel so alone. You can't seem to lose the weight. You're working out non stop. Food has become the devil that adds to your weight. You're stressing about everything. Heart races with any little bump unexpected change. And all you want to do is know what peace feels like and be "there" so you can finally start relaxing and actually getting healthy. But it's so incredibly hard when it seems like everyone else is doing it easily and you're struggling with ever growing demons, telling you you'll never get there. I'm here to tell you that you are FAR from alone, and the answer isn't more hustle or work. The answer is what you're afraid to believe is true. Rest. Fun. YOU. You've been looking for answers outside of yourself long enough. It's time to heal those negative voices and feelings to get you the physical results you crave. In a way that's easy, doable and long lasting. This is what my coaching is all about. Bringing you out of the loneliness and into full support. Because I know what it's like to go this a new chapter alone. And I'd love to help you fast track this, because you've got things to do! Let's stop stumbling around when I can help you find that clear cut path for YOU. Here's your permission to rebel and create the life, body, confidence and health you so desperately crave.
