first fitness photoshoot vs most recent fitness photoshoot
biggest difference... gainzzzzz 😂😂😂😂 oh and learning to be confident and truly happy with who i am.
fitness has been a huge factor in my life that has challenged my happiness, my confidence and coming into my own person. without fitnesss, i wouldn’t have gone through body dysmorphia, which must i say, i’m thankful for at this point because it has truly made me realize where happiness comes from... and it’s not the mirror.🙃
fitness has tested me in every which way. mostly, mentally. a lot of people start working out and just think, “oh, my body is going to change and i’m going to be so sexy and happy and prove them haters wrong”..well let me tell you something, yea my body changed, but i became more unhappy because i was doing it for others. but, without fitness i wouldn’t have realized this.
over the years of lifting and trying to prove to others who i am through my body, i’ve learned that, people are going to view you as you view you. if you are unhappy because your always trying to prove something to someone else, people can tell!
it’s actually not till recently that i’ve realized, the more i do this for me, the more i’m confident with my body in any stage, the happier i have been. let me say this.... no one is going to purely stay in your life because you have a bangin bod, actually it has let a lot of very toxic people into my life.🤦🏻♀️
you know what keeps people around? a good f*****g attitude, determination, the want to help others, consistency in all that, treating yourself nice and also treating others right. if you are nice to yourself, if you want to succeed for yourself, the body will come. .
at this point in my life, i would way rather focus on my happiness and let the rest unfold. if you have a goal, go after it but if it’s not true to you, you will be miserable. if you’re doing it to prove someone wrong, in the end, it’s pretty unfulfilling. prove to yourself you can succeed through love and through hard work. prove to yourself that you can do anything you put your mind to..then everything else will fall in to place.💯

Yesterday, while scouting potentially flooded factory farms, i came across large dumpsters full of hundreds of baby piglets, some no larger than my hand. their tiny, lifeless bodies were stacked to the top of multiple dumpsters. full grown sows were observed in a separate receptacle, rotting in the sun. shortly after witnessing that carnage, i gained access to a second farm with a dumpster that housed the maggot infested corpse of a large female pig.
receptacles like these are located on site of every industrial animal agriculture facility to contain bodies until they are picked up by a waste disposal service. this is the routine and standard disposal practice of animals deemed waste products of a violent, oppressive industry.
many who are unfamiliar with pig farming might be unaware of a particularly haunting practice called “thumping”, a standard method of killing piglets deemed sickly or too small. their skulls are “thumped," or smashed against the concrete in an attempt to k**l them. many piglets do not die immediately. undercover footage of this standard industry practice can be found online. videos reveal piglets convulsing and frantically looking around after being thumped by farm workers.
most of us have been conditioned to believe the animal products we eat are normal, natural and necessary. however, behind every neatly wrapped package of flesh is a story of immense cruelty to sentient life. these government subsidized, corrupt industries are the leading driver of anthropogenic climate change, sell products that are harmful to human health and callously k**l countless animals.
this footage was captured at the world’s largest “pork” producer, responsible for killing over 1 billion pigs a year. this figure does not include the thousands of piglets thumped to death or the animals who never make it to slaughter. this company has publicly committed to being the leader in animal care and claims to guide the pork industry towards “higher standards”. ...
