Wholeheartedly Healthy on Instagram

  • Sharing a few things I’m grateful for today...
✨ Coffee...always coffee
✨ Finley, he’s just the most awesome little man and brings so much joy to my life 💗💗💗 I also feel very thankful he’s now healthy and happy
✨ All my family and friends - I’m a very, very lucky woman to have so many good people in my life ✨ My work, my clients and customers, not a single day goes by when I don’t feel immense gratitude for being able to make a living doing something I love that in turn helps others
✨ My home, firstly grateful for the fact I have a safe and warm place to live, but also very grateful we were able to get this place after the faff we had getting out of our one bed flat ✨ Music - I was singing along to stuff on Spotify today and it just reminded me how much joy music brings to my life
.
I could go on and on and on! And happy Thanksgiving to my American friends of course! ❤️ What are you thankful for today?

  • Just chillin at my desk ✨
.
Got some brand spanking new pics done thanks to the lovely @rjmphotographyportraits
.
Slowly getting used to seeing so much of my face - it can be very easy to start picking myself apart, and to be honest when I first saw the pics that’s what I did - I noticed the rolls, the double chin, the thighs, the too small eyes and too big nose
.
But then after a while I started noticing my smile and how my eyes sparkled and how clear my skin is and more of the things I actually like about my appearance
.
It reminded me not to hide away from having pictures taken, taking selfies or even having more shoots done because the more I see myself like this the more comfortable I feel, the more I really see myself and who I am - and that’s got to be a good thing ⭐️
.
How do you feel when you see yourself in pictures?

  • Slightly obsessed with this Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate at the moment! 🍫
.
Been busy photographing recipes all day and thought I’d include this one for my Balance Club ladies in the club magazine 💗
.
Watch this space though, I’m working on my first quarterly magazine ready for January and it’s going to have some amazing recipes in it!
.
Is there a certain recipe or meal you’re loving right now?

Coffee, pjs, magazines and maybe some more tarot study ✨ (and obviously lots of Mama time and cuddles with Fin)
.
What’s your plans today?

  • Do you ever find yourself minimising how you feel?
.
Instead of just saying ‘I had an anxiety attack’ I found myself saying ‘I had a migraine’ or ‘a small anxiety attack’ or ‘a bit of an anxiety attack’. I found myself dismissing my own discomfort because a) not wanting to make a fuss and b) there’s so many people dealing with so much more than me so why should I be feeling like this?
.
This thinking is SO toxic, and I find a lot of women also have this pattern. The problem is, it’s a way of thinking that on the surface sounds useful but is absolutely not. Yes, sadly there will always be someone in a worse situation than you, but using that as a reason to invalidate your own feelings is not helpful.
.
To enable us to process, deal with and heal the more negative aspects of our lives and emotions through self care we must allow ourselves to validate how we feel!
.
Your experience is your experience and your feelings about it are valid no matter what - you can have compassion for others in worse situations and still have compassion for yourself 💗

  • This weekend has been an interesting mix of family time, Saturday night working, binge watching Ugly House to Lovely House on All 4, being a background model for @behappybebrightbeyou_x gorgeous retreat photographs (check out my stories!) all the while being on day 30 of my cycle and having a minor overwhelm freak out this morning.
.
I’ve just needed to take a step back this evening and this quote is a good reminder to me going into next week to find that balance between surrendering and pushing.
.
Wishing you all a fab week ahead! ✨

  • Full on autumn vibes in Durham today 🍂🍁✨

  • Got all glammed up for a photo shoot today! (Ignore my hair though this is post outside getting blown about in the wind!) 🌬
.
If anything is going to trigger off your body image issues it’s getting profesh photos taken, but this is probably the first time I haven’t had a meltdown about it - although come back to me when I actually see the pics! 😬
.
I’ve had 4 photoshoots for myself and a couple of others for magazines and things - check out my stories for my best tips on preparing for a photo shoot ✨
.
Ultimately, when I do get a body image wobble about photos I try and remind myself that it’s just a snap shot made in a second. Anyone can be made to look different depending on angles and lighting - and don’t get me started on digital alteration - so I try not to let my view of my worth get attached to something so changeable if that makes sense!
.
Have you had a photo shoot done before? How do you feel about having your photo taken? 📷

  • Anyone else love cinnamon rolls? 🍂
.
I have making some of my own (recipe on my site) on my autumn bucket list. Nothing says autumn to me like a chai latte and a cinnamon roll! 🍁
.
Do you have a dish or recipe that makes you feel all autumnal?
