New school year on the horizon means a new batch of shop bathroom selfies 😆 not gonna lie, as someone that’s well hydrated, having a private bathroom right around the corner is super convenient 🤷🏼‍♀️ Teacher life can be a bit hectic at times, but you can’t let busy be an excuse for neglecting your own health needs! Stay hydrated, add in healthy motion, sleep, fuel your body well, take care of your mind, etc. By taking care of you, you can best take care of the others in your life! For those working in roles that serve others (and thank you for your service!), just think of how much more of an impact you could make if you kept your own cup full! Now, I know there’s a world of a difference between those two photos. But you see there’s also a decent chunk of time. This didn’t happen overnight. It took a daily commitment to be consistent. One day, one step, one healthy habit at a time ❤️—————————————————————— #grow  #progressnotperfection #struggle #motivation #girlswholift #goals #transformation  #teacher #weightlossmotivation #believe #summer #health #mentalhealth #follow #weightlosstransformation #fitfam #determination #dream #inspiration  #fitspo #optavia #BeforeAndAfter #fashion #weightlossjourney #school #igaccountability #instafitness  #picoftheday #transformationtuesday.

Throwback Thursday, First day of school edition! In the picture on the left I was down about 50 pounds. I was feeling on top of the world an oh so excited for what that next year would bring. When I first chatted with my coach, one of my main goals at the time was to be a better teacher. To be more mentally available. Technically by then I had already met that goal. What if I would have stopped there? Goals need revisited, and as you meet them go bigger! If you’re dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough. Not gonna lie, I’ve got some big hairy audacious goals of my own that intimidate me. But I’ve already accomplished so much in these last few years, and there’s no stopping now! If you’re ready for some change, I’d love to help! Healthy body, healthy mind, or even healthy finances, (all three are surprisingly intertwined, and snowball when just one is out of whack). I’ve kept this pretty hush on here, as I worry about being a bother. If you’re interested and want to know more, I’d love to chat with you! Send a message, and we’ll figure out a time to connect 🙂 If not, that’s fine too. Just keep on scrolling and back to the regularly scheduled program 😉 ——————————————————————- #grow  #progressnotperfection #struggle #motivation #girlswholift #goals #transformation  #teacher #weightlossmotivation #believe #summer #health #tbt #follow #weightlosstransformation #fitfam #determination #dream #inspiration  #fitspo #optavia #BeforeAndAfter #fashion #weightlossjourney #school #igaccountability #instafitness  #picoftheday #transformationtuesday.

“I’m from Hampi, and came here 2 months ago for my school vacation, to work at my uncle’s shop so that I can repay the debt my parents owe him. I sit here from morning to evening, and have so many kinds of customers everyday -- college going kids, office going people, even old aunties and uncles. All I do is sit here, and fix or clean their shoes, but I’ve never had anybody who’s actually stopped to have a conversation with me. It’s like I’m invisible. Some people don’t even look me in the eye, some will just get their work done and walk away, and some even talk to me rudely for no reason. Even if I try to have a conversation, they’ll ignore me or ask me to focus on my work.
And I can’t help but think that if I was an educated person, sitting not here on the street, but in a shoe shop, would I still be treated like someone not worth talking to. I used to feel bad before, but I’ve come to terms with it for now. I pray everyday that I can repay this debt fast, so that I can go back to school, finish my education, get a good job, a good salary -- and most importantly, to not be invisible anymore. And I guess I have gotten the biggest sign that slowly all my wishes are coming true --you stopped to talk to me, today!”.

“I was 11 when I was introduced to poker, when my dad was watching the World Poker Tour on TV. 
When I was in school, I loved sports, especially tennis. But once while playing, I got a ligament tear. I couldn’t play for a long time after that, but that’s when poker became my solace. I’d play with family & friends. 
Everyone played for ‘fun’ but it was more than that for me, I was good at it & it was fulfilling. I was confused about my career so I’d keep interning, but each time I’d lose interest & quit. 
By the time I was 18, I kept playing poker online & had around 3 Million in online tokens. My boyfriend couldn’t believe that I’d done it all by myself. He said that poker was a ‘sport’ & that I should explore it. 
So I started playing full time, online. I was lucky that my parents supported me—even when they were told things like, ‘Your daughter is a gambler!’, ‘No one will marry her’. They helped me ignore the judgements & focus on poker. 
Just around that time, I’d gone out of town & was on my way home, to surprise mom. But before I reached, she passed away in her sleep. I was devastated. 
It took a while before I felt stable. But that’s when I put my energies back into poker, to get better. I signed up for a worldwide poker competition, which if I qualified for, I’d get to go to Barcelona. Out of 7,00,000 people, I was one of the 4 people selected! 
I couldn’t believe that what I’d been belittled for, had got me across the globe. I won that contest & the day I won, was also my mom’s birthday. 
That moment, changed my life. It gave me the strength I needed. I came back, & started getting many opportunities! I became the brand ambassador for PokerStars India. I was felicitated by the President of India, on a platform where Kalapana Chawla & Dipa Karmakar were awarded—for being the ‘first woman’ in a category, me being the first Indian Poker Player.
A few months back I lost my dad too, I was heartbroken—but I knew that they’ve both left me with a legacy, that pushes me to work for my dream. To push down those who judge my work—and focus on growing more. To know that my belief in myself should matter much more than anybody else’s uncertainty.” #FitMeAsIAm.

Hypothyroidism and Depression Go Hand-In-Hand.

SO many women are being told that their Thyroid is normal and it’s really not. These women just haven’t had the right thyroid tests ordered.

If you or somebody you know is struggling with depression, having a full thyroid panel is what they need.

There is a root cause for depression and anti-depressant medications don’t solve the root issue.

YOU are not alone & today i am determined to remind you of that. .
.

We all have those times when the struggle is in the juggle. Yes, I’m trade marking that stupid shit, it’s mine & you’re welcome. Let’s get real, we spend most of our time doing the “Oh Susan, I’m busy this week but let’s definitely have coffee next week” the truth is Susan, I will most certainly not be seeing you next week or even the week after & you know it. Thanks for playing along though it’s a nice thought. As adults we tend to spend a lot of time speaking amongst ourselves with  a context that goes something like this “it will be better when it slows down” or “I can’t wait until things slow down”. Am I the only one who has realized that is only an unattainable desire ? Shit NEVER slows down, no it doesn’t stop & hell no it doesn’t get easier. Occasionally we get better at juggling it all, or we just throw our hands up & say fuck it for a minute. That minute is bitter sweet, I savor the residue. So if you’re out there juggling, like I am, I believe in you & I hope you take time to drop the circus act for a minute, an hour .. shit hopefully a day and genuinely enjoy yourself once in awhile. Recharge, refresh, revive for the love of all words starting with r resuscitate your damn beautiful self. We all need some time to just blow it all off and breath. Love yourself & the ones you hold dear. You deserve it & so do they. The hustle & bustle will be there tomorrow when you wake up, deal with it then. Let’s not miss out on the moments that define us & don’t forget how important it is to invest in yourself. Make time or loose it. Happy Sunday you juggling ass amazing mf’s😘 .

Yesterday I was talking to a friend and realized through our conversation that not one, not two, but all THREE foundational areas of my life are currently in chaos. My living situation, my relationship situation, and my career situation. I’ve been living it for a couple months now, but I hadn’t really hadn’t taken a zoomed out, full picture evaluation of what’s been up for me.

It felt surprisingly validating (not more stress-inducing!) to realize what’s happening in my life and what’s at stake. Because prior to this conversation with my friend I was REALLY starting to beat myself up for feeling as badly as I’ve been feeling about myself this summer. Having thoughts like “Jesus, why can’t I just get it together?” Or “I need to just try harder!” Or simply comparing my life to other people’s around me and feeling so terribly lonely, left behind, and isolated.

Instead of seeing that I’ve come to a serious focal point of transition and tearing down the past so, hopefully, I can create a better future, I’ve just been seeing my inept feelings towards myself and judging the fuck of out me. NOT seeing that maybe my feelings are a reasonable, normal, even common response, to the kind of heightened stress I’ve been under.

So this is my post to say that my old life is crumbling and I’m in the “scaries” of having NO IDEA what’s gonna happen next or what I should even do. 
All I know is I so appreciate gentleness and love and connection and validation right now. So if you have any extra, I’ll share some with you if you have some for me. ✌️💕
