|| TW SEXUAL ABUSE HARASSMENT VIOLENCE ||
"one of my first boyfriends ever slapped me in front of many people. a former friend kissed me without consent, he knew i had a boyfriend and didn't want him to. i stayed over night at one of my former best friends house because i was sad over a breakup. that night he held my arms tight to my body so i couldn't move and kissed me without my consent. a guy on the bus sat down next to me and said i'm beautiful and that he would like to talk to me. i said i have a boyfriend and needed to leave the bus earlier because he didn't leave me alone. another guy on the bus stared at me and i gave him angry looks to make him stop and looked away. he made me feel really unsafe and when i left the bus he winked at me. when i walked home i always turned around to make sure he wasn't following me. a teacher called me 'little heart' (herzchen in german) and when i told him that i feel uncomfortable about that he got angry and denied everything. i must have misunderstood. a guy i dated did things i didn't want him to. i went clubbing with a friend and a guy danced really close to me from behind, then grabbed under my shirt and touched my breast. i swiped away his hand, turned around and pushed him away, few minutes later he came back and grabbed my ass. then i pulled my friend out of the crowd [...] this is enough. I never really talked about stuff like that on here but I think it's time to. I won't accept shit like that anymore because it's MY freaking body, I make the rules about it, NOBODY is allowed to do things like that - it is NOT my fucking fault.
if something like that happened to you, talk to someone you trust, go to the police and NEVER let someone tell you that it's your fault, because it is NEVER. alcohol is not an excuse. your outfit is no excuse. literally NOTHING justifies something that is done to you without your consent. you're not alone. spread awareness and stay strong. be there for each other and stay kind" - thank you for standing up, love @alixialeonie#awareness#mentalhealth#sexualassault#sexualabuse#violence#violenceagainstwomen#speakup#noexcuses#sexualviolence#stopvictimblaming#metoo#metoomovement

„TRACKING“ :gymtalk about #gymtime and #gymgoals .
Das sogenannte „Tracken“ gehört bei mir mittlerweile zum Alltag.
Dazu zählen die #trainingroutines sowie das tägliche #mealprepping .
Mir hilft beides sehr, weil es meinen Kopf befreit und ich mein #mindset vollends auf das #training und allen anderen wichtigen Dinge des täglichen Lebens konzentrieren kann.
der Countdown zwischen den Trainingssätzen hilft mir, mich konzentriert zu erholen und mich rechtzeitig auf die nächste Trainingsbelastung zu fokussieren.
#macrotracking und #mealprep
sind meine täglichen Begleiter.
Sicher ist es zu Beginn einer #ernährungsumstellung ungewohnt sich an einen festen #ernährungsplan zu halten, doch allemal lohnenswert.
Kein hektisches überlegen mehr, was ich als nächstes esse(n darf/sollte) und auch kein stressiges einkaufen bzw. zubereiten mehr, weil ich wieder nicht rechtzeitig daran gedacht habe. Auch bleibt der „gefährliche“ #heißhunger aus, der einem sonst gern und immer wieder aufs Neue einen Strich durch die geplante und eventuell bereits begonnene #bodytransformation macht und die #bikinifigur wieder einmal einen Schritt weiter wegrückt.
Der Körper will und muss rechtzeitig und ausreichend mit Nährstoffen versorgt werden ganz gleich, wie Dein individuelles Ziel geartet ist:
#healthy , #fitness , #muskelaufbau , #abnehmen oder #mentalhealth
Probiere es aus und bleibe #consistency .
Es ist nicht schwer und zahlt sich aus!

Addiction is not due to weakness or a lack of willpower, it’s a chronic disease that involves changes in the brain. But it can be treated successfully. If you or someone you know has a problem with addiction, talk to your doctor, a mental health professional, or an addiction specialist. Getting help may be life-saving!
Learn about addiction by watching “How Addiction Affects the Brain” PSA on our YouTube channel youtube.com/danafoundation.

Happy Friday ✨ ... As you can see, I’m getting back into the swing of things with my workouts as well as posting again! Feels good to be back to my “normal” self. Feeling A LOT more better & stronger. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mental health is a touchy topic, so I don’t plan on giving you all a full out caption talking about it. But I will say THIS, we all have those bad days, weeks, even MONTHS. Sometimes we lack the motivation, loose interest, and feel irritable or even restless. And I’m here to say that’s it’s OK and it all gets better. But I’m also going to say that it’s OK to just disconnect, unplug, and regroup. You should NEVER feel guilty for taking care of yourself. As long as you’re pushing through those hard days and you are giving credit to yourself where it is deserved. It’ll all pass eventually 😊. (TED Talk rant over)
Give this workout a try AND don’t forget to
LIKE & BOOKMARK FOR LATER! 🤍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Oh how I want spring to be here as I am looking outside today. But, we cannot change the weather where were are, however, we can choose how we respond to the weather and in fact we are not a tree, we are not rooted to the location that we are in, we can move.
For a lot of us moving just is not an option at this time. So what can we do? Can you find joy in the winter? Can you remember when you were younger, playing in the snow? Building a snowman, making snow angels, building forts, snowball fights, sledding? Look at the beauty in the winter season.
Winter is a season, much like many things we go through life are for a season. We can find Joy or misery? We can choose not to be a victim of our responses.
How are you responding to tough times? Do you find your self emotionally eating, drinking, smoking or another habit that you have been using for years ~ that is not serving you in the way that your want to live your life? Do you feel stuck in this? Have you tried to change only to return back to the old habits/behaviors? If this is you, let's talk. I've help so many people make a change ~ for good.
Want to preserve and maintain your mental health? Rest! Our souls were not designed to be in constant warfare! We were wired for rest and replenishment (Psalm 23:3). After intense seasons of spiritual warfare, it is now time to rest and process, not just “move on” to the next battle or assignment. In Matthew 4:1-11 after 40 days of testing in the wilderness, Jesus rested! At the end of the time of warfare, verse 11 says that the devil left Him and angels were sent to minister to Him. During Elijah’s depressive episode in 1 Kings 19, he was allowed to rest, eat, and an angel came and ministered to him. This is self-care! I invite you to take some time to rest! Let the angels of the Lord minister to you! Sit with yourself. Process through all of the emotions. Allow yourself to feel. You are a human being, not a machine. Stop being obsessed with “spiritual warfare” and the “the devil is trying to kill me” narrative. Rest is not only a weapon, it is also holy! #SoulHealing#MentalHealth#EmotionalHealth
🌸 Good morning! 🌟 Breakfast today was oatmeal w fruit, ginger, and heart-shaped sprinkles, along w some coffee ☕ I got up early and made some art before the sun blasted thru my eastern window to blind me (thankfully, the program didn't freeze up halfway thru this time 😅), and now I'm relaxing while watching a video by Tokidoki Traveller. She's originally from Australia, but is now living in Japan. I found out abt her when I was in the midst of my "tiny home" obsession, as she previously lived in a teeny tiny Japanese apartment 🏠 I started knitting my latest scarf as well. It's a pale blue color and it kind of reminds me of a cloud. I'm rlly looking forward to seeing how it turns out 🌧 Also, it was a bit too cold for a walk this morning, but I did visit the gas station and I picked out some fun snacks, which I will post later 🍫 My mood has been a lot brighter over the past couple of days. I honestly don't know what changed. I don't feel like I'm doing anything drastically different, but I can't see any reason to complain abt feeling BETTER 😊 🌸
