Instagram photos and videos

I remember a time, when my world looked real instead of a reel. ๐Ÿ˜
.
Yesterday a friend sent me a screenshot she had of my IG profile back in 2014, and it looked sooooo different. ๐Ÿ˜ณ
.
Back then I hadnโ€™t learned to edit photos yet, or plan my IG grid in advance, so to my now trained eye, it looked a hodgepodge mess of colors that were too bright and didnโ€™t match one another. ๐Ÿ™ˆ
.
But you know what?
It was real. It was all me. It was innocent, and thereโ€™s beauty in that too. ๐Ÿ˜
.
These days, I find myself starving for authenticity as I scroll, and it feels like itโ€™s getting harder and harder to find. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
.
Moments of โ€œno filterโ€, both literally and metaphorically, are becoming increasingly rare in this heavily edited, highlight reel-oriented world that weโ€™re living in. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
.
The awareness isnโ€™t lost on me that as an โ€œinfluencerโ€, I contribute daily (in small ways) to the very things Iโ€™m complaining about being part of our reality. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
.
I justify my misgivings about that by telling myself this is the world we live in, and Iโ€™m just keeping up with what people like to see... but Iโ€™m starting to think you all might be as hungry for authenticity as I am. ๐Ÿค”
.
In the spirit of 2014 me, here is a photo with no editing and #nofilter, complete with a couple back rolls, and a woman in the background peeking through above my lower back. ๐Ÿ˜‚
.
Normally Iโ€™d photoshop her out, but Iโ€™m tired of seeing photos at places I know are crowded, with one lonely looking girl in a perfect outfit in the center. ๐Ÿ™„
.
Cheers to a world filled with people, even if they mess up your photo. ๐Ÿฅ‚
.
Cheers to back rolls that we all have in a pose like this. ๐Ÿฅ‚
.
Cheers to real life that looks a little messy over fake life that looks โ€œperfectโ€. ๐Ÿฅ‚
.
Cheers to knowing that YOU are as worthy of love as the โ€œyouโ€ in your highlight reel. Comment YES if you agree. ๐Ÿ’—

Grateful and glowing with @vitalproteins, and rocking @aloyoga โœจ #feedyourbeauty

A couple familiar faces in this bunch, but still, traveling with a new group of girls can be a little intimidating for me sometimes. ๐Ÿ™ˆ
.
I never know how things will shake out, who Iโ€™ll get along with, who I wonโ€™t get along with, and whether Iโ€™ll feel like Iโ€™m on the inside or outside. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
I came into this trip with my usual lingering childhood fears of feeling shy or excluded, and lucky for me, those fears had absolutely no merit. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
Everyone Iโ€™ve met on this trip with @vitalproteins have been so sweet, inclusive, and welcoming. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
.
Itโ€™s so refreshing to have everyone show up in the spirit of collaboration, rather than competition. Canโ€™t wait to travel with this crew again! ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’—

Practicing acroyoga with @domdoesyoga really gets my heart pumping. ๐Ÿ˜œ
.
No seriously though, I opened the @whoop app when we finished, and I had an average heart rate of 120 bpm and a max of 160 bpm! ๐Ÿ”ฅ
.
I of course completely trust Dom, but part of me wonders whether those 160 bpm moments were from physical strain, or fear lol. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
I now know all about the strain I take on each day, and how my body responds to various physical and mental scenarios, because Iโ€™ve partnered with #WHOOP, and have been using their band and app to track my fitness and map out my optimal recovery plan. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
Thanks #WHOOP for keeping me ready to flow with whatever life throws at me, by helping me to calculate both my current level of recovery, and how much rest Iโ€™ll need to recover fully and thrive tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’— #ad

Dear Optimist, Pessimist, and Realist. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿค”
While you were busy arguing about the glass of water, I drank it.๐Ÿ’ง
Sincerely,
Opportunist. ๐Ÿ˜œ
.
Comment and tell me: which are you? ๐Ÿ’—
.
I tend toward a mix of opportunism and optimism, with a splash of realism mixed in. ๐Ÿ˜˜

I never thought that at the age of 32, I would have been waking up with the same person for the last 14 years. ๐Ÿค—
Well, I guess the validity of that statement depends on whether you consider dogs to be people. ๐Ÿค”
I often do, especially with Neila. Sometimes I like dogs better than people in fact. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
Oddly, I can watch people get hurt in movies without too much of a reaction, but I see a dog get hurt in a movie and Iโ€™m half-traumatized and potentially crying. ๐Ÿ˜ญ
Not sure what that says about me lol. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
I cancelled plans once to visit a guy I was talking to, because he told me Neila couldnโ€™t sleep on the bed with us. ๐Ÿ™€
I said that was fine, but in that case I wouldnโ€™t be sleeping there either. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
I told him weโ€™re a package deal. ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ
Dogs before bros. You know? ๐Ÿ˜‰
Do you have a dog? Comment name, breed, age, and whether your dog is a person (even though they obviously are a person๐Ÿ˜‰). ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿถ

Lao Tzu tells us that โ€œBeing deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.โ€ ๐Ÿ”ฅ
Iโ€™m here to remind you that that โ€œsomeoneโ€ youโ€™ve been waiting for... is YOU. ๐Ÿค—
Quit waiting for anyone else to love you, and start showing them how itโ€™s done. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
Have the courage to love yourself so deeply, that anything beyond that is simply icing on your cake. Then youโ€™ll have the strength to know your cake is already delicious on itโ€™s own. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Iโ€™m feeling the burn after teaming up with @whoop to bring you these 5 Lower Body Burner resistance band exercises. ๐Ÿ”ฅ
.
You can complete them all in just 5 minutes (or less!) and they will definitely get your heart pumping. ๐Ÿ’—
.
I checked my #WHOOP app after, and this set brought my heart rate up to 155 bpm! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
Itโ€™s amazing how tracking my fitness, using WHOOPโ€™s revolutionary technology, points, and percentages and metrics to monitor my daily strain and recovery, brings out my inner competitor... even if Iโ€™m only competing with myself. ๐Ÿ˜‚
.
Thanks @whoop for giving me these new tools and inspiring me to set new personal records each day for both how active I can be, and how rested I can be. It's like having a 24/7 coach on my wrist! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
.
Hope you like this mini workout! If you SAVE it, please remember to also LIKE it! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’—

Iโ€™m just 15 days away from making a big move! Iโ€™ve only lived in this house for the last 6 months, but Iโ€™ve lived in Venice for the last 3 years...ever since I moved from Scottsdale to LA. ๐Ÿก
.
They say that plants can only grow as large as the pot in which theyโ€™re planted, and I feel like Iโ€™ve grown as much as I can in my comfy Venice pot. Iโ€™m ready to once again feel like a small plant in a large pot. Iโ€™m ready to keep growing and evolving. ๐ŸŒฑ
.
Iโ€™m only moving to West Hollywood, about 9 miles away, but somehow it feels almost like Iโ€™m moving to a different state. (If youโ€™ve ever experienced LA traffic, then you might know what I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰).
.
Part of me is scared, but the rest of me feels exhilarated to explore a new city, find new favorite restaurants, hang out spots, and yoga studios, make new memories and friends, and grow into my new metaphorical pot. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
.
I canโ€™t wait to show you guys my new spot! Itโ€™s incredibly light filled and charming, and different from anywhere that Iโ€™ve lived in the past few years. Best of all, itโ€™ll be mine. All mine! After living with roommates for the last 3 years, Iโ€™m changing it up and living solo. Thatโ€™s a little scary too, but also very exciting. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
Is change in the air for you as well? How are you stepping out of your comfort zone right now? ๐Ÿค”
.
If you want some support and encouragement for your changes, comment and share below. Iโ€™ll respond to every single one, and be your personal cheerleader for the day. ๐Ÿค—
.
I can speak from experience, and say that new steps feel far less daunting when you have someone cheering you on. ๐Ÿ’—

As always, rocking @aloyoga ๐Ÿ˜

New mantra: itโ€™s not your job to like me. Itโ€™s mine. ๐Ÿ’—

Need to remind myself of this more often, so today Iโ€™m going to practice being kinder to myself. ๐Ÿค—

Weโ€™ve been friends for 2 years, and have talked about practicing #acroyoga together since day one. Yesterday we finally made it happen, and I learned that @domdoesyoga is a G! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

If you ever have the chance to fly or flow with him, take it! Dom is an amazing friend and teacher, and if youโ€™re in the LA area, you should definitely check out his classes. ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
