🤱🏼 Just giving little Mia a cuddle before heading off to a meeting. Becoming a mother is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. As hard a job as it is (I’m learning this very quickly haha 😝) I’m really appreciative that I have a beautiful, healthy little girl. One of the important things for me back before I gave birth was to not lose sight of my long term goals. Obviously Mia is the number one priority in my life but that’s not to say I can’t achieve all the goals that I have set out for myself. 2018 is going to be a very big year for me. I’ve set myself some pretty ambitious (but attainable) goals both in business and for myself physically. As soon as I’ve been given the all clear from my doctor I plan on getting stuck into my FIT program along with the tens of thousands of ladies from around the world in my amazing community. While I’m still recovering from giving birth I’m trying to use my time as best I can to begin kicking some of my business goals. I’m super fortunate to have an amazing team of people that I work with that have been with me for a very long time. Along with their help I’m sure that I’ll be able to achieve all the goals that I set out for myself. The first step to achieving anything in my opinion is believing you can do it. While I’ve had plenty of times when I doubt myself I always pick myself up and decide to believe I am capable of achieving the things I want in life and that I deserve them. 😊 . . ✨ Trial my FIT Program for free for 1 week! – Link in my profile! 👆🏼 . .
I had an overwhelmingly busy day of meetings & a photo shoot! I’m wrecked now! 😩 Does anyone else feel like the days are getting shorter? Every time I look at the clock, I can’t believe how late it is! I feel like I haven’t got enough time to do everything I wanted to do, and get worried that nothing will ever get done. It’s easy to become overwhelmed by the amount of things you need or want to do, and time can slip away from you if you don’t prioritise and plan. I find that when I start feeling overwhelmed, I need to take a step back, re-think what actually needs to be done, and what can wait, and then I write a list. The list can be a “To Do” list, or writing down your goals so you can be reminded of what you truly want and what is important to you. Days where I feel like I just cannot get up and motivated, I can look back on my list and feel more on top of things with a structure to my day. When you feel you’ve lost touch with your fitness and workouts, a great way to get you started is to write a small at home workout routine, which is easy and quick enough to complete, yet challenging enough to see improvement. Stick it on your fridge or somewhere you will see it every day, and tell yourself to complete it before the day is over. After a week of doing this daily, you should begin to feel accomplished and motivated to continue a routine. I believe that anything that gets written down, becomes reality. It becomes important and relevant, and reminds you to pay attention to it. Next time you feel like your day is too short to do everything you need to do, try it out – write it out! 👍🏼😉 . . @emilyskyebeauty @emilyskyefitness . .
Another pic my sister @elisenicoleanderson took! 📸 I love being creative in many different ways: photography, makeup, hair, fashion, modelling, vlogging, drawing, painting, designing.. the list goes on. You can get creative in so many different ways and I believe it’s really healthy for us to take the time to get creative in our own way! So go get your creative ON and have fun! 👍🏼😊 . @emilyskyebeauty . .
I made it to LA! 😃 I wanted to say to all of you incredible people: Happy “I care about you day” 💗 I really appreciate every single one of you! When I first started with fitness and sharing my journey with others I had a goal to reach as many people as I could to spread a positive message and inspire others to believe in themselves and live a happy, healthy and positive lifestyle. I feel so blessed to be able to live out my dreams and pinch myself everyday! It’s amazing how much you can completely change your life around! – Notice I said “YOU can change it”? – It’s up to YOU to make changes if you’re not happy. Yeah sh*t happens that you can’t control but there’s a lot you can. A decade ago I hated myself and my life and saw no point to my existence. I was completely lost, unhealthy, insecure and depressed. I decide I needed to make some drastic changes and while it wasn’t easy and took time I did it.. it’s a process and it’s something I have to make the effort to do every single day. If I don’t I find myself slipping back to how I used to be. Being active, practicing self love, eating nutritious food, surrounding myself with positive, supportive people and practicing being grateful for all that I have are what keeps me on track. If you’re feeling helpless or unhappy know that you can make changes and become happier. You can learn to love yourself and have self belief. You have to choose to do it and work at it every single day. Believe you are worth it! YOU ARE WORTH IT! 🙌🏼Sending love to you all! I appreciate you SO much. 💗🙏🏼
I’m not gonna lie, I am looking forward to heading back home to warm Australia! I love London but I miss wearing dresses like this & not freezing my butt off!.. & I miss living in a bikini haha! 😝🙈 . Anyway, more importantly…I wanted to talk about “perfectionism”. There’s a different between striving to better ourselves and “perfectionism”. . Many of us feel the need to be “perfect” to avoid criticism, blame, shame, judgment, to please others, to gain praise, to have purpose, to feel worthy and to be loved and accepted. The thing is, perfection doesn’t exist, so we never achieve those things that we think we need to feel worthy of love and belonging. You will be loved and you will belong BECAUSE of your imperfections. According to studies, perfectionism is linked to feelings of failure, depression, anxiety and addiction and it restricts and paralyses our life. Perfectionism is something I have dealt with and still deal with (although I’m much better now) and I definitely believe it’s linked to my lack of self worth, belonging and acceptance. . I didn’t feel “good enough” or worthy of love and never felt like I belonged. I feel like an outcast, an alien, a weirdo.. But I have learnt to embrace who I am and be myself – flaws and all and I got this “perfection” idea out of my head. It doesn’t exist. . I don’t want to constantly be chasing something that is simply unattainable nor do I want anyone else to feel the way I used to. . I feel so very passionate about sharing messages like this. I love health and fitness but what I believe is most important is mental health. – What you think of yourself, how you feel, loving and accepting yourself and being kind to yourself. There is nothing worse than self-loathing and shame – it destroys us! . I choose to be authentic, I choose to be the REAL me, I choose to embrace who I am and I choose to love myself. I believe I’m worthy. – So are you! 💜 . #bemorehuman #perfectnever . @emilyskyebeauty . .
