I feel as though I am not me… I am my acne. These are RAW images. ALL 100% untouched and feature NO make up.
The first from two months ago with absolutely no make up, the last one is from yesterday.
I’m sharing something here that’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I feel so embarrassed and confused. I don’t feel like myself. I searching to find her again but it’s getting hard and I don’t see her in the mirror recently. I want to be my happy healthy self who is confident and thrives in her body. With makeup sometimes I can find her. But I’m not really her right now and the past few weeks I haven’t been.
This past summer summer I made the choice to do my barre certification with Barreworks in Toronto. You may remember the name because I’ve posted many pictures and stories there attending classes and working out while in the GTA. I love the studio, teachers and the course was did not fall short of that same expectation.
I wanted to share with all of you a part of my e-book that is one of my favourites.
It’s about Sugar and why its so important to cut it the F out!!!
As we do this 25 day cleanse I think its important to share more and more information on WHY we cut out stuff like sugar and dairy. Its super important to be educated and then make the right choices for you moving forward from the cleanse. When I did this last year I cut out out cheese and never went back!
SO HERE YOU GO - STRAIGHT FROM THE FIT FATALE E-BOOK:
I cannot think of a better place to start than sugar. You are losing your mind due to a white, powdery drug that you keep giving yourself. One of the keys to controlling your appetite, mood, and life is regulating blood sugar. Blood sugar is like a rollercoaster. Every time we pump sugar into our bodies - and trust me it happens way more often than we would like to believe, we are sending our bodies on a sugar spike. But like all ups comes a big down. How do we survive it? Well, we reach for more sugar.
I love doing cleanses. They have so many benefits to our health, but I also love the idea of a personal challenge. Of saying no I wont do that and sticking to it. And then of course… once you’ve made it the first few days of suffering without sugar and all those other things we get addicted to… it’s like, well whats the point of breaking now. We’ve suffered so it better be for something. Slowly and slowly you start to feel less cravings and just feel freakin awesome. I cant wait to watch the next group of TFF challenge girls do the same.
While I was just in NYC I had the pleasure to visit Haven Spa in Soho. The spa is cute, quint but super lush with a velvet couch waiting room and little lights in the hallway to your treatments that look like the stars overhead. I booked two treatments. The Peach Smoothie and The Hour Glass. Here was my experience:
Okay so I know that starting your day with greens is usually a great way to boost your energy and mood, but as the weather gets cooler I’m craving more yummy cozy flavours like chocolate and peanut butter in my smoothies.
I cant be the only one!
Here is one of my go to recipes including Vital Proteins Chocolate Blackberry collagen protein powder. It’s so good mixed with a bit of peanut butter. Filling and full of collagen, protein, antioxidants and vitamins.
