Happy Tuesday y’all 💋🎉❤️ I have been on a ‘kind of’ social media break. I say kind of because I still do Insta stories of my dogs, fun stuff, workouts, food, etc etc and the occasional page post, but I have really wandered far away from the daily body positive posts I used to make. I can’t say the hiatus was planned, moreso something that just happened naturally. I got less interested in my posts and more interested in enjoying my life. I am currently on a mission to #health ... Right now I’m not feeling as healthy as I used to. And you know how judgemental people are with each and everything you post on a public social media account, especially one that is meant to be about #bodylove So, I have just been minding my own business...Yes, I am about body love, but I am also about being and feeling healthy. Healthy is different for everyone, curves are different on everyone...In the past year I have restarted my modelling career at a bigger size and regardless of the fact that there is more diversity each and everyday there is still constant pressure to be the perfect size. I have spent the year constantly feeling and hearing that I’m not quite big enough even though I have gained upwards of 40lbs... TBH I just got fed up, I felt I went from starving myself to be thin to overeating to be more curvy. It just didn’t seem right. Currently on the path to finding my own happy medium 🙏 Stay tuned for my #progress ... Hope this clarifies where I have been for those of you wondering... Lots of love to you all during this #holidayseason Here’s a cute boomerang of me shimmying in a #bikini 😜 #goinguponatuesday#normalizeus
The first winter storm has hit here in Montreal! 😢 But that didn't stop me from Christmas shopping!! Online shopping is the way to go! 😁🎄 I'm adding this simple, yet stunning lace gown to my #wishlist . ❤
“Gabby doesn’t like me when I wear my hair like that” Cambelle said as I brushed her hair into a half ponytail in front of the mirror.
“Okay, well we don’t really care what Gabby thinks about your hair right?” I asked.
“Well Nina is still my friend when she doesn’t like me” she said.
“Okay, but can I tell you a secret?”
“Do you know who is the most important that has to like you every day, in every way?” I asked her.
“You, Cambelle! You are the one person that, above all else, must love yourself no matter what, and no matter who else chooses not to like you. Do you like yourself?”
“Okay, why don’t you tell yourself in the mirror all the reasons you like yourself”
“I like that I’m cute.
I like that I’m pretty without makeup.
I like that I am fashionable.
I like that I am friendly.
I like that I am kind.
I like that I spend time with my mama.
I like that I can read.
I like that I can do a split.
I like that I’m a rockstar.”
It’s never too early to begin instilling a strong sense of self in our children. They will be challenged by their peers, by the adults in their life, and by the countless number of marketing images they see daily. Challenged to change the way they feel about themselves, especially if they haven’t even thought about what makes them special yet.
I encourage you, whenever you can, to give your children the tools and the time to have self awareness and build a positive self image. In this example we used positive affirmations that she chose herself to define what she believes to be her strengths. These beliefs come from the things we talk about around our home, and are directly correlated to the way we, as our youths leaders, talk about ourselves.
Just do you babes, and let’s help them do the same!

A year ago I would have been embarrassed to post the picture on the left, but today I'm proud to show it to everyone because I'm so happy and comfortable in my own skin. 🤗 We all look different when we move, in different lighting, from different angles and that's ok! 💕 .
I feel like cellulite is something women are embarrassed of. I used to be one of those who was writing on Google "how to get rid of cellulite" and waiting for some kind of a miracle. 🙈 After realizing that it's in my genetics I learnt to accept it. Trust me I have it far less than before when I was overweight, but I know it won't go all away. Let's learn to love our "imperfections" because they make us different and unique from others. Selflove is the best gift you can give yourself. 💕
What is this yellow stuff?! 😜 I asked in my stories who knew what nutritional yeast was and almost half of you did🙌🏼 For the half that does not know — Nutritional yeast, also known as savory yeast or nooch, is an inactive yeast made from sugarcane and beet molasses. In the scientific form saccharomyces cerevisiae, or sugar-eating fungus, yeast cells use the sugar for energy.
Yellow in color, nutritional yeast comes in flakes, granules or a powder-like form and is often found as a condiment due to its savory taste and health benefits. It has a nutty, cheesy flavor and is often used to emulate cheese in vegan dishes, thicken sauces and dressings, and act as an additional boost in nutrients because it’s filled with B vitamins!
Nutritional yeast is grown from fungi, like benefit-packed mushrooms and cordyceps, but much smaller. Despite it’s name, because it’s an inactive form of yeast, it cannot be used for baking. It is a perfect addition to any meal, providing nutrition while saving calories — nutritional yeast is one source of complete protein and vitamins, in particular B-complex vitamins. It contains folates, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, selenium and zinc, making it a great superfood! It’s low in sodium and fat, gluten-free, and doesn’t contain any added sugars or preservatives.
It’s a great source of vitamin B6 however, because yeast cannot produce B12, if it is listed on the label, that means it has been fortified with it👌🏼( You don’t want it fortified!🚫) I absolutely love nutritional yeast and wether I was detoxing or not I always keep plenty stalked in my pantry so I can add it to whatever I choose 🙌🏼 For more information on nutritional yeast or my detox hit me up! 🙃💜

Breath in happiness and life.
Exhale negativity and self doubt.
Repeat after me.#affirmations .
I acknowledge my own self worth, my confidence is soaring.
I am enough just as I am in this moment.
I approve of myself and love myself deeply and completely.

You are enough.
Focus on positive and you will get positive.

"i get ice cream after burlesque so now my brain associates ice cream with the studio."
"yeah, you reward yourself for the hard work you do? "
"oh, no. It's not a reward, i always deserve ice cream." .
Remember teeny lovely anorexic trying-real-hard insecure beautiful Ritz who, beginning at age 4, learned to hate her body and appearance? The girl who feared leaving her room and thought she'd never measure up? She was wonderful. But i think I ate her. Well maybe we ate our insecurities and pooped them out? Iono, - "the old Taylor can't come to the phone," or whatever.
And! I didn't even notice the double chin here at first, once I did I didn't even see it as a problem. Cause that's what chins look like sometimes! It's just a body. Bodies are for body-ing, not for critiquing or hating or fearing or measuring. .
I used to think
I'd never be
So no one
Now I know
I am always beautiful
Because I am filled with beauty
And that neither of those things
Affect my worth .
It was so automatic! I am floored that my brain knows my body always deserves whatever food it wants because food isn't good or bad or earned it just exist - and I get to decide how I want to exist with it.
Bless my burlesque /twerk/pole community at @brassovaries for being particularly influential in me learning what my body can do an how to appreciate it.

I'm beginning a weekly post each Tuesday for tips to help combat negative body image. Reclaiming your body is more than just deciding to change your relationship to your body, it is hard work that we have to engage consistently over a long period of time. I've spent a long time gathering knowledge about how to overcome body demons, and I want to pass my expertise on to you all! If you have any specific questions about body image that you feel stuck on, send me a DM and I'll do my best to respond. Anyway, here is my first tip!
Pro Tip #1 : When you are stuck in a negative body image loop, the first best thing you can do for yourself is to get into dialogue with yourself. For example, if you are having the thought that, 'My stomach is so disgusting', give yourself an alternate way of understanding the sensation of your stomach. You might say to yourself in reply, 'I have been conditioned to think that the sensation of my stomach folded in on itself is disgusting. But a stomach is supposed to be rounded and folded. It is perfectly natural.' or 'I really do not enjoy this sensation, but this feeling does not need to define my capacity to love, create, or bring my brilliance into the world.' or 'I hate this experience, but I know it will eventually pass.' And then the hate filled voice will pop up again, and then you'll respond with your neutral response. Even if you don't totally believe the neutral (or loving!) response, taking the step to insert the thought in your brain is the first steps towards developing a more positive inner dialogue.

Nourish your body with nutritious foods, movement, and self love 💙
Learning to love yourself is one of the hardest things you will ever do.
Struggling with how you feel is hard too.
This journey I'm on, this lifestyle I lead, it's not always roses. I have ups that are awesome and then I have days that are hard, dark, and frustrating.
Sometimes even though you know better, it doesn't always mean you do better.
All of this is completely NORMAL! I'll always share the good, bad and the ugly. This week is the ugly.
So I'm looking back at how far I've come. And WHY I continue to go in this direction, even when it's hard AF!
Because I love who I've become.
I'm a better mom.
I'm a better wife.
I'm a better coach.
I'm a better me.
The me I've always knew was in there. -- I didn't come this far, to ONLY come this far 🖤
My body always took the weight of my self hate.
I blamed everthying on my body and the 'extra fat' I carried.
Best friend doesn't want to see me anymore? - It's cause I'm not pretty like her.
The boy doesn't want to be with me? It's probably cause I'm fat.
And, mom and dad are supposed to love me, just for me, regardless of body, but even they left... So whats wrong with me?
These were the things I told myself.
Its what I believed to be true. And I felt, so alone. .
Because If it wasn't what was wrong with my body... then It was what's wrong with me.
And I dieted, I starved, I cut, I shamed, I binged, I screamed - all at body.
And I went on this fucking 10 year journey to try and "fix" body. And I realized.. at about year 9, that Unless I fixed my Mindset about myself, the weight would come back, again again and again.
And the more I worked with it, the more I appreciated my body, it no longer needed to carry the weight of my self hate. .
And, then it didn't matter if the friend or the boy or the parents didn't want me. I want me. And at the end of the day, that's all I really have, Me Myself and I.
What weight do you put on yourself? Are you a people pleaser? Do you expect yourself to be perfect? What High Standard do you hold yourself to that consistently makes you feel weighed down?

It. Was. Tough.
My cardio 👎 BUT I rocked it out despite!
Thanks to the encouragement, support, & kick it the rear I got back on track tonight!! My nutrition has been on POINT & I'm just feeling flllyyyyyy 🐦🐦 Now to knock some things off my to-do list before we leave for vacation on Friday... like book a hotel!!! 😯
The silly season often means lack of routine, a thousand festive feasts and beach holidays. So how on earth do we keep up with our movement goals during this time? 🎄
Answer: You don't. But here's what you can do instead to keep moving this Christmas (and prevent the dreaded Jan gym rush)! 🎅
Find it in the mag (link in bio)
I hate how it sometimes takes me going on vacation and taking a nice long walk on the beach to realize how precious life truly is.
I’m a wild spirit at heart. I love to walk for hours on the beach and collect seashells. I love to go clubbing and dance my ass off with or without alcohol. I love to talk to random strangers and go get ice cream when it’s ten degrees outside.
When I’m not on vacation I get caught up in daily life. I think I have to stick to some set routine and eat the same five foods. It gets old and friggin tiring.
I made a promise to myself on the beach today. When I go home, I want to LIVE regardless if I am on vacation or not.
I want to explore the city, try new foods, dance and talk to random strangers in my OWN city.
I know it is easier said then done beauties, but step outside of your routine just once. Step out of your routine and friggin just let go. Be the badass person you truly are.

TBH showing my midsection makes me uncomfortable.
But I share to show you what’s possible. That health has no size, shape, or weight. To you this picture may not be anything — to me it shows a body that was built in 1 year. A year of recommitment, of stress, of knee injuries, of finding my own beauty and of not comparing myself to other people I see. The last thing two things I want for you 💝To finally be in a place where loving your body and how you feel about it is more important than how your body looks. Be fantastic. Sparkle and keep loving your body for all it’s worth. If you don’t love your body, you are capable of changing that. I’ll be here to help you if you need a place to start 💕✨😌
Having one of THOSE days? Ugh. 😞We know the feeling and it sucks. When nothing is going your way. You're not wanting to be around others, and this might even be when you feel compelled to let those self-destructive behaviors creep in. Sometimes it is just hard to keep it together. But we want to remind you that you are strong...stronger than you know and having the courage do what's right or best for you, doesn't necessarily mean there's no fear present. It means you're choosing to NOT let fear stop you. 🌟Remember - if it was easy then it wouldn't take bravery. Even in the bad and downright 💩days, we can search for something small that brings you joy. Light a candle, drink a warm beverage, or call a friend and remind yourself (or your friend can remind you) that you CAN take that step forward. You are resilient. We believe in you, do you believe in yourself?
