Can't say I was hiking very long today. -27 degrees and snow whipping around 80 km an hour LOL but I had to get outside even for a little bit

“I spent many years wearing around a (false) badge of courage, telling myself that I didn’t “need” anyone but myself - needing others was a sign of weakness .”
But you know what?
Life’s actually pretty awesome when you let people support you, through the shitty training days, those antsy recovery days and when injuries/boys make you cry.
Gracias por todo mi amor @vanesamimiwong 🥰

Chasing things bigger than myself...

When I was trekking through Nepal such a peaceful place really want to go back!
No makeup, no flat iron, no padded bra?!⠀
I've come a long way to love myself the way that I do. ⠀
There are still days where I wish I had what someone else has, more curves, more height, more intellect. ⠀
But I work on Self-Love everyday! I focus on the things that I like and love about myself. There was a time when I didn't focus on either. If you feel that way now, regardless of your gender identity keep reading.⠀
You might be thinking ... but dressing up is a form of Self-Love, I love how I feel when ____. But is that enough? When the day is done and it's time to strip away all of what makes(you)up ... Who and what are you left with? ⠀
It all starts with how you view and treat yourself. What you think, what you eat and who you surround yourself with is a reflection of that. Below are some tips that I have compiled from personal experience that has lead me to have a positive relationship with my body and Self. Self-Love is a practice, and I recommend you start prioritising it.⠀
Tip 1. Be Grateful: tell yourself and the universe how grateful you are for ____. If you're not grateful for anything, take some time to reflect. Were you taught gratitude? Were you ever grateful if not when did it stop?⠀
Tip 2. Set Intentions: Ex. I plan on working out today. Intend for this to happen, write down the time, set an alarm.⠀
Tip 3. Affirmations: Affirm daily, this can vary for each part of your life. Ex. I love and respect my body enough to have worked out today. Affirm with sentences like, I am, I choose, everything in the present tense. ⠀
Tip 4. Be proactive: Actively make a change in your life. If you want to lose weight for example, reflect on what foods your consuming and substitute those with plant based options. ⠀
Share this with someone who you think may need it.⠀
Thank you and never forget that you are strong and worthy of all things. - Julia⠀

Today has been a day for me. Toronto has been hit with a massive snow storm so I’ve been cooped up inside and it’s been wonderful. I started my day with an at-home HIIT workout (thanks @whitneyysimmons 🙏🏼), followed by a relaxing bath, finally finishing my book (Girl, Wash Your Face by @msrachelhollis), and slowly developing my new @poshmark account for all the clothing purges to come.
Side note — If you’re interested in the ability to shop my closet, follow me @lilyslensonlife on @poshmark (not sponsored) ♻️
Can’t remember the last time I had a full day all to myself and I think it’s just what the doctor ordered ♥️
