- • Carta para un enredado •
Hola, antes que todo, quiero decirte que te entiendo, entiendo esa mezcla de sentimientos tan extraña que no sabes ni explicar, esas noches de insomnio en las que tú cabeza no dejaba de darle vueltas a pensamientos que ya son recurrentes. Ese nudo en la garganta que te quita el apetito y te dificulta respirar con normalidad. Está todo revuelto, pero es momento de parar, sí, PARAR. Baja tus revoluciones e intenta desenredar todo eso que te tiene así. Deshilacha cada sentimiento, sé que salen algunas lágrimas en el camino, pero es parte de todo esto, estás limpiándote. Es un proceso, nadie dijo que sería fácil, pero al final te darás cuenta del resultado, y te lo agradecerás .
Atentamente: Una enredada

Today’s Mental Health Word: Question
When someone hears the term “mental illness”, a host of thoughts or opinion can come to mind. But a better understanding of mental illness begins with asking questions and seeking answers.
At some point or another, persons diagnosed with mental illness and communities at large will have want-and need-to-know questions about mental illness As with any other investigation, there are many “Who, What, When, Where, Why and How” questions that can and probably should be asked about mental illness, like— • Who can be diagnosed with a mental illness?
• Who can I talk to about mental illness? • What is mental illness anyway?
• What are some causes and signs of mental illness? • When should a person seek help for a mental illness?
• When should a person change or stop treatment for a mental illness? • Where can someone get a proper evaluation and help for a mental illness?
• Where can someone work or volunteer in the mental health care community? • Why should someone tell their family, friends, or co-workers they have a mental illness?
• Why should I care about mental illness? • How is a prescribed mental health treatment supposed to work?
• How do I start a discussion on mental illness?
A person who never asks questions either knows everything or knows nothing. Asking questions is a crucial part of facing the challenges of mental health, fighting the stigma of mental illness and having a successful and rewarding life.

- Did you know that a common trait of all humans is our need to remain consistent with things that we commit to?
Especially if those commitments are made public!
Every Monday we ask our community to mention just ONE thing they're going to do this week that is going to help them grow, and move them closer to their goals.
So, if you want to follow through on achieving your desired vision, help facilitate that by being one of the few people who are willing to make their commitments public.
You'll be far more likely to be consistent that way.
What are you going to do this week to help you become the best you can be?

- Restricting the body of glucose (carbohydrate) requires the body to manufacture glucose by an emergency back up plan (ketosis), which initiates a stress response. The body perceives this as starvation and will act accordingly by slowing metabolism to conserve energy, increasing hunger hormones, and making you think about food 24/7. Human bodies are designed to and prefer to utilize glucose for energy. The quick (but unsustainable) weight loss that often results from this kind of malnutrition, is why so many people attempt low-carb diets. What’s not talked about is is the extreme carbohydrate cravings, low energy, rebound weight gain, low self-esteem, irritability, and often years of trying to make peace with food again. The reason sugar cravings come on so strong isn’t a lack of willpower, but that the body thought it needed willpower to abstain from the food in the first place.
Carbohydrates can be part of your plate, at each meal and each snack, if you prefer. It’s your call and the body will do its best to protect you, but restricting glucose (sugar/carbs) should not be confused with health or happiness, and it certainly not a cure-all.

Comment below 👇👇👇 a trait you think is sexy as fuck in a partner.
- I solemnly swear that I am up to no good
- I want to tell you a story about this water bottle. This has been on my heart to share for a while now and I think it’s time to be brave and put it out there, based solely on the fact that the more of us that speak up, the more will know they’re not alone.
When I go to the gym, this bottle never leaves my side. When I set it next to a machine, it stays in my direct line of sight the whole time. I don’t walk anywhere without it and it is never left unattended. When I go to Target and get my iced coffee, it stays in hand the whole time. I get lots of looks when I take it inside the bathroom stall with me to pee. The only person I ever leave a drink unattended with is my fiancé. When I am at a gathering and someone serves me a drink, it stays right in front of me every second and again, goes to the bathroom with me.
He drugged me. I was 18, he was 32. I was unsuspecting and my memory was so in and out I never had the guts to say anything. I didn’t tell a soul for years. Those I have told I can count on one hand.
I am not sharing this for sympathy. What happened to me was horrible and it took years to come to terms with it and I still have struggles to this day. I’m sharing this for every survivor of sexual assault who feels frustrated or defeated because they still look over their shoulder when they walk to their car alone. For the women who keeps her knife forever tucked in her bra or who still feels sick every time a male superior needs to have a one on one meeting with her. Do what you need to do to feel safe. It’s not about your abuser, it doesn’t mean they’ve won. You’re allowed to protect yourself and do the things that make you feel at peace. You’re strong, you’re a survivor, the fact that you get up everyday and face life head on and continue to chase your dreams and make life happen speaks volumes about your power and strength. We all do these little things. It’s ok to admit and it’s important to talk to each other and remember always.... YOU ARE NOT ALONE!☀️
- why I’m stopping weight training...
WELL not completely. but I’ve decided to do more cardio, specifically jumping rope, BECAUSE I JUST damn enjoy it. I definitely enjoy lifting weights, and I’m still going to do it for bone health and muscle mass reasons, but I love the rUSH and the challenge of jumping rope. also, weight lifting was partly so that I could look “good” to society aka slim thicc. I’m probably gonna retain my shape, which I’m glad about but also don’t really care that much, but in order to face all aspects of recovery, you need to change your routine. being stuck in the same routine is an extension of being stuck in the cycle. YOU GOTTA BREAK IT!
💪🏻today’s workout: 60 min jump rope, 40 sec on, 20 sec off. was doing variations including double jumps, skipping, running in place. SO MUCH FUN!
🏃🏻♀️steps: 27, 609
