First day in ny and loving it! 🍎
as someone who thrives on travel for inspiration and igniting my creativity, this mini trip has been exactly what i needed. the pace here is alive, bustling and energetic ⚑️ i soaked up all the 🌞 on coney island, dipped my feet in the water πŸ’¦and observed πŸ‘€ all of the interesting people enjoying the great weather with merengue music bumping in the distance 🎢. it’s a side of ny i have never seen before and i’m kind of living for it! 😍
i was quite reluctant to go on this trip at first - with so many of my insecurities and panic about life coming up - but i’m so beyond glad that i’m here. sonia’s back πŸ”₯πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Shoulder boulder day πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼 dear lord i did not realize i could sweat so much or have such a high heart rate from just a shoulder workout! this past week has been a blast trying out new workouts from @cocos_gymsta and i’m loving every second of it. it’s so easy to get stagnant and bored with workouts so switching it up is always fabulous! i’ve been sore in places i didn’t even know i could get sore! so if you’re getting bored with your workouts don’t be afraid to switch it up - change is good!!! now off to nashville for the weekend πŸ€—πŸ€—

My maid of honor lorraine, her niece and i on my wedding day. almost 2 years ago. i can't believe it. it was one of the best days ever. i never thought someone would love me that much. i still have trouble sometimes believing it. but my life has changed in many wonderful ways since our wedding. i really hoped we'd have a baby by now... hopefully in the not too distant future... but first i need to make sure i am healthy enough to be pregnant. first step is making a doctors appointment, and addressing all of my current issues and concerns. kinda nervous. i really hope i can get pregnant. wait and see for now i guess... #bodypositivity #selfimprovement #bebetterdobetter #healthy #mentalhealth #innerpeace #growth #family #fertility #infertility #diabetes #thebestaddition #marriage #married #friendship #30something #friends #wny #bopo #fatgirlflow #effyourbeautystandards #fatgirlfashion #family #growingfamily #children #motherhood #marriage #wedding #ketogenicdiet #keto

The pregnancy glucose test has haunted me since i first heard about it in my last pregnancy. i was terrified. but for different reasons. --------- with my first, i was terrified that i'd have to drink the orange drink because... i didn't know the calorie content. it would throw my whole day off. it would have to count as my "treat" for the day, normally reserved for a nightly binge. i never had sweets that early in the day. it wasn't part of my routine.
i ended up passing the first blood test the first time so i never did have to drink the orange drink and felt relieved that my routine and calorie count would remain intact. -------- this pregnancy? i was terrified because my body was larger when i got pregnant.
i've been conditioned to believe, thanks to diet culture and our modern-day media, that a larger body is to blame for... basically everything. so i was scared that somehow i put myself and my child at risk simply by healing my body and my mind from an incredibly disordered lifestyle.
this time when my first blood test came back, i found out i didn't pass so i'd have to do the orange drink test. my dr. and nurse said many, many times that this is a very common result but i was still terrified and mad at my larger body. despite the fact that i eat much more balanced and move my body much more sensibly, i felt like i somehow hadn't done enough. that perhaps the world was right.

i found great comfort in reading the slip from the clinic: it did not state that the size of my body had anything to do with it. rather, " changing hormones," which is basically the name of the pregnancy game. am i right?! #tearsfordays
so, i drank my orange drink, had my blood drawn, and waited for the call.

the test came back normal. i am fine. ----------
this experience had me reflecting on why so many people in larger bodies fear or simply don't go to the doctor:
we don't want to hear that the amount of space we take up is the sole reason that we suffer, because we hear enough of that simply by existing in our everyday lives. (continued in comments)

155.
that is my weight as of this morning. why do we place so much value and importance on that d**n number on the scale? i hardly ever weigh myself for the feeling that it brings if that number goes up. i’m just being honest. .
i have come a long way because instead of being upset/ down about it, i’m posting a picture of myself feeling 155 % strong. feelin 155 % sexy. 155% #flexing because i feel like a badass. 😜 155% proud of myself and the hard work i have put in. 155% feeling amazing lately. and you should too girl!!! πŸ’ͺ🏻 because i will tell you this.. you are not a number. you are not defined by a number. that number does not tell the story of your dedication, your hard work, your meaning, your worth, or your beauty. and dont let it.
so instead of being down on ourselves let’s be proud of the strong women we are and try to love ourselves no matter what that number tries to tell us. in fact, just throw the whole scale away!! πŸ–€

Skin care isn’t always a breeze πŸ’¨ i’ve struggled on & off with acne all of my life πŸ™ˆ my skin has been the cause of many self conscious moments throughout my days. my skin still sure isn’t perfect, but i’ve begun to learn how to take care of it during this new chapter of life & want to share some of my new fav products! i still hate going out bare faced, but i think it’s important to learn how to accept what you have & make the effort to take care of yourself. just because i get a mega zit every once awhile (or a lot awhile) doesn’t change the fact that i deserve to be proud of myself even when my skin is disgruntled. i choose to be happy no matter what’s happening under my layers of makeup, with absolutely no shame ✨ read all about my holy grails on my latest post - link in bio!
