When everyone leaves and everything is shitty my dogs are still there - was wäre mein Leben nur ohne die zwei Fellnasen Seelen, die jeden Morgen neben mir aufwachen? Leerer und langweiliger auf jeden Fall! Manchmal verfluche ich es. Das Geld verbrennt man nicht nur egoistisch für sich, egal wie Scheisse das Wetter oder wie krank man selbst ist, die Hunde müssen raus. Man kann nicht mal eben alles hinschmeissen und abhauen für ein paar Tage - aber vielleicht ist das auch besser so. Hunde sind loyaler als Menschen. Sie sind so simpel gestrickt, dass sie mit dem reagieren was sie bekommen. Erfährt ein Hund Liebe, reflektiert er sie. Erfährt er Gewalt, reflektiert er sie. Eigentlich so, wie ich es mir von Menschen wünschen würde. Man ist nett zu ihnen, sie sind nett zu einem. Es wäre so einfach! Die Leute fragen mich häufiger, wieso ich mit 28 schon weiß, dass ich auf keinen Fall Kinder möchte. Zum einen fehlt mir das Gegenstück dazu, mit dem ich es mal Länger als ein halbes Jahr aushalten würde. Zum anderen möchte ich einfach keinen Menschen in diese Welt entlassen. Die Erde ist eh schon maßlos überfüllt. Der Mensch zerstört seinen Lebensraum durch Kriege, Egoismus, Müll und Habgier - wo soll das hinführen? Definitiv in keine Zukunft, in die ich ein Menschlein gebären möchte. Der Gedanke zu sterben und den einen Menschen, den ich mehr als alles andere in meinem Leben geliebt habe (so stelle ich mir das vor, wenn jemand neun Monate in einem war) an diesem gottlosen Ort zurück lassen zu müssen. Urghs! Ne, danke! Da bleibe ich lieber dabei und schenke meinen Fellnasen ein gutes Zuhause. Danach rette ich dann einfach die nächsten! 🤗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #veganfoodshare#dogsofinstagram#mydogs#vegangirl#vegangermany#vegan#veganfood#vegansofig#veganfoodporn#teckeldog#pug#plantpower#adoptdontshop#instadaily#dogsofinsta#whatveganslooklike#dogsoninstagram#veganhealth#eathealthy#howtosavealife#cutedog#facesofbeauty#facesofinstagram#vegandeutschland#wir2punkt0#veganwerdenwaslosdigga#fillingyourmind#veganwoman#familymember
3 whole years ago today, me and Mike did a wedding thing 🔔 💓 We got engaged at the end of June and less than 12 weeks later were Mr and Mrs. It was small, didn't cost us a fortune, totally vegan and still the best day ever ❤️ (shortly followed by the honeymoon to Harry Potter World in Florida, think I cried with happiness more there than when we got married 😂) There's a million photos that are all wonderful but these are a few of my faves 💕 Happy Anniversary Mike! And anyone else who might be celebrating one today!
“Atisha is really very, very scientific. First he says: Take the whole responsibility on yourself. Secondly he says: Be grateful to everyone. Now that nobody is responsible for your misery except you, if it is all your own doing, then what is left?
Be grateful to everyone.
Because everybody is creating a space for you to be transformed - even those who think they are obstructing you, even those whom you think are enemies. Your friends, your enemies, good people and bad people, favorable circumstances, unfavorable circumstances - all together they are creating the context in which you can be transformed and become a buddha. Be grateful to all.
A man once came and spat on Buddha, on his face. Of course his disciples were enraged. His closest disciple, Ananda, said to him, This is too much!" He was red-hot with anger. He said to Buddha, "Just give me permission so that I can show this man what he has done
Buddha wiped his face and said to the man, "Thank you, sir. You created a context in which I could see whether I can still be angry or not. And I am not, and I am tremendously happy. And also you created a context for Ananda: now he can see that he can still be angry. Many thanks, we are so grateful! Once in a while, please, you are invited to come. Whenever you have the urge to spit on somebody, you can come to us." It was such a shock to the man, he could not believe his ears, what was happening. He had come expecting that he would anger Buddha. He had failed. The whole night he could not sleep, he tossed and turned and could not sleep. Continuously the idea haunted him - his spitting on the Buddha, one of the most insulting things, and Buddha remaining as calm and quiet as he had been before, as if nothing had happened, wiping his face and saying to him, thank you, sir.“ ~ Osho
there are no good full length mirrors anywhere and I just reallyyy would appreciate one with a nice background lol. anyway this is me so far!!! my figure has gotten tighter so I think there’s been a little bit of fat loss involved but honestly idc. I sort of want to bulk because I want to see how far I can push my body, but I just don’t think it’s feasible because a) I still am recovering from some restrictive eating habits and I don’t know if I could handle eating the sheer amount of food and b) I walk soooo much (7 miles yesterday, and that’s withOUT training!!). 😂 In order to bulk I’d have to eat soooo much (not complaining tho lol). right now I’m making my oats and just being overall very reflective about my time here. I am learning a lot but keeping on track with my training. I’m so proud of myself!!! And even though sometimes it’s hard being away from home, I know I’ll be stronger in the end. Keep training hard everyone! 😘💕
GaiAmagische Story-Wo bringt uns diese Reise hin? Wird die Zukunft grün wie die Natur oder grün wie die Nummern von The Matrix? Und ist das überhaupt ein Unterschied? In der Schule liebte ich Chemie Unterricht. Ich habe meiner Mama immer gesagt: „Aber was heißt den „unnatürlich“ schon.. Wenn ich als Mensch natürlich bin, und das Element mit dem ich als Chemiker arbeite natürlich vorkommt.. warum ist dann plötzlich das was ich erschaffe „unnatürlich“? Der Honig einer Biene, den sie erschafft, gilt aber als natürlich?“ Auch heute nutze ich „unnatürlich“ nur als Synonym für das was ich eigentlich meine - „Unverhältnismäßig schädlich für jegliche Ökosysteme und deren Bewohner und Zyklen“ Würde mir jemand einen Computer aus Metall bauen, welches nicht aus einer zerstörerischen Mine kommt, so würde ich den Computer nicht unnatürlich ansehen als Honig. Wir Menschen haben halt ein riesen Gehirn und auch wenn wir es nicht immer so einsetzen, wie das vielleicht besser wäre -einige von uns haben „Technik“ entwickelt.. ziemlich krass eigentlich. Nur schade, dass es so viel Zerstörung nach sich zieht. Was mich an diesem Gedanken an der Natürlichkeit, selbst von Technik fasziniert, ist das uneingeschränkte entdecken, dass wir als Menschen wirken und TEIL dieser Welt sind. Oft nehmen wir uns so separiert war.. Warum sagen wir so oft, das alles was MENSCHEN nun wieder machen „unnatürlich“ sei? Dabei ist es Natur.. weil WIR Natur sind. Was natürlich nicht heißt, dass unsere Aktionen nicht zerstörerisch und unverhältnismäßig schädlich sein können und auch oft sind.Deshalb setze ich meine Hoffnung auch nicht nur in Lebens-Projekte wie unseres. Sehr Pflanzen betont.. Denn ich habe mittlerweile genug verstanden, dass wir so vielfältig sind auf dieser Erde - Dass es immer neugierige Bastler geben wird. Und mein pflanzengrünes Herz pocht im digitalen Rhythmus, hoffend, dass die nachwachsenden Daniel Düsentriebs sich der Nachhaltigkeit und dem „grünen“ Gedanken der Technik annehmen. Auf dass wir als Menschen endlich mal richtig „laser“ dastehen im Verbund mit unserem Lebensraum und Mitlebewesen. Dass wir anstatt Plastik Müll mal „Honig“ für die Welt erschaffen
I’ve always had a bigger booty, but I am SO excited to see it change shape since I’ve started working out with weights! I’ve been using @bodybymg home guide and love the workouts!! Find workouts you enjoy! It makes a difference!
I’m not sure if this was supposed to leave the vault 🤫. But in honor of #nationalcheeseburgerday and paying homage to this massive, coconut cashew cheese smothered veggie burger we had in Thailand...it was a must🍔!Thank you, Thailand, for all you do. 💜🌶😋
If #Instagram had a scent filter, I would grace you with the potent smell of rotten cheese 🧀 that was working out next to me while at the squat rack. 🤢 I literally had to walk away between sets to get away from this person.
I know it’s mean to say, but DAMN! He had to know how bad he smelled. We all get a little funky while sweating, sure. But this dude must not have taken a shower in several days. That’s just inconsiderate! Ooof!! ☠️
ANYWAY! Here are some clips of my leg/glute day. I’ve been consistently training legs twice a week for over two years now and guess what? They’re not as big as I would like them to be after all the work that I’ve put in. Even constantly switching up the exercises, lifting pretty heavy, using slow #PogressiveOverload and #supersets for a while now WHILE staying in a #CalorieSurplus, etc. etc. I have improved pre-activation as well as #MindMuscleConnection recently, so here’s hoping that will be the key.
Regardless, I love #WeightTraining and my body as it is. One day - maybe two more years from now - those glutes will pop like never before. And things like this take longer than people think. If you see some picture or program that promises #booty in 3 months, it’s complete BS. Don’t believe it.
And I in particular was not born bottom heavy. Plus, I have a pretty fast metabolism that makes it harder for me to put on muscle mass. I DEFINITELY have more curves back there than I ever did, so slow and steady is fine with me. I’m not willing to bulk - up my calories to 3000/day or something crazy like that - because I don’t want to ALSO gain belly.
I’ll continue around 2000 which is still a surplus and continue my individual process. Because I’m not about yo-yo diets and constant fluctuation. I want #sustainable results with an intuitive, #healthy, satisfying, way of eating.
2015➡2018 💥 A little sister sister throwback💃Sure some things change when you lose weight, but #realtalk they mostly......stay the same. My sister is still my absolute best friend, for example. 😘 I think we associate a lot of changes with weight loss itself because our culture is so ~obsessed~ with it. In actuality, though, (and I think my incredible sister @astrangecreaturecalledaimee will agree) the majority of these changes (aside from perhaps the more obvious physical health indices) don't magically come with the loss of pounds. If you werent before the weight loss, you won't suddenly become confident and mentally well and comfortable in a bikini. You won't love kale and hill sprints overnight (or maybe you will!). Change comes when you find a sport/physical activity you enjoy (or grow to enjoy) and it makes you sweat and smile. Change comes when you prove to yourself you can do something you never thought you could. Change is incremental and far-reaching and multimodal and is so.much.more.than.a.number.on.a.scale. My sister and I are so much stronger, mentally and physically, today than we were in 2015.💪 In 2015, Aimee couldn't--and didn't desire to--run a mile. In 2018, Aimee is kicking ass in college, has run 7 miles straight, and lifts absurdly heavy weights for FUN. In 2015, Sam was wracked with anxiety and self-doubt and wondered if her first half marathon was a fluke. In 2018, Sam is training for her third marathon while juggling grad school, has run 6 more half marathons since her debut, PRing by over 13 minutes, and is learning how to say "No." The scales have changed, fluctuated in those years too for us both, but who gives a flying hoot about THAT? There's so much more excitement going on than just that.
I digress. 10 tough 'mill miles for me after work and I'm off to bed. Can you tell I'm missing my sister?! Happy Tuesday, friends! May you all celebrate some nonscale victories! 🎉👊💥

If it requires harm then nahh 🙅🏻♀️. It goes deeper than just food ☝🏼. What you eat, what you consume, and what you give your attention to becomes you. If you’re not striving towards becoming your greatest version everyday, you are doing yourself, and this world a disservice 🌻.
Backyard blackberries are the best!🖤😋 I have been enjoying them while I can because I know they won’t be around for much longer. I plan on growing some produce of my own next year. There is nothing better than going in your own backyard and gathering food. I’m still not exactly sure what all I want to plant. What are some of your favorite fruits and vegetables to grow?🍓🥕🍉🌽🥒 #govegan#foraging#blackberries#plantvibes

I’m Baaackkk!! After 3 weeks off of all social media! I know it was a little longer than I had mentioned but I tend to get distracted so fast and taking a break from all social media was much needed! I’ve been working on some little projects and i can’t wait to share it with you guys! Also I had a fun little photo shoot with my favorite photographer 📸 @bearded_vegan lol ❤️ And got some pretty dope pictures so I’ll be blessing your feed with a few 😂💗💗 #yesmyeyesareopen#imissedyouguys

Level (year) 28 is is in the books. Definitely the most transformative 12 months of my life thus far.. My pops Grandma and uncle all passed on this year.I've moved across the country and traveled completely around it twice.. At one point I weighed under 150 lbs 😱. I went camping for the first time in my life and I had a lot of other interesting adventures and encounters with some very interesting souls.. So here's a thank you to everyone who participated in level 28 I would hope to have learned something from all of you . I look forward to what the next 12 months hold in store I'm sure it will be another wild ride .. 🤙🏽🙏🏾🙏🏾 #earthday#virgo

So it turns out ... I’m a pretty
PASSIONATE Woman. 😂
Something I really recognized and honored in myself during my Retreat last week. And one of the aspects of this intense passion is expression through dance.
At 36, I have found MY most creative self expression of DANCE. I found it in an all women Pole Dance studio. I went on to take floor work, lapdance, exotic and chair classes/workshops.
I’ve never felt so FREE and at home in my body. My self confidence soared, sexual trauma began healing and any sense of unworthiness or body shaming myself dripped away as I sweat on the dance floor.
When was the last time YOU danced?
I don’t dance for anyone but myself ... And so can you.
I’m especially directing this toward you women ... When was the last time you felt truly alive in your body? Felt your hips move freely and run your fingers around the curves of your body? Maybe that seems awkward or silly to you. Perhaps embarrassing. But also ... maybe it sparks curiosity in you? What would it look like if you unleashed your inner wild sensual Goddess? We ALL have intense and beautiful feminine energy pulsating through our veins waiting to be unraveled and admired. Admired by ourselves. 🔥
Turns out, I have a passion for this divine feminine energy and creating space for women to explore their own. I don’t know what this looks like yet. I have a workshop I teach called “Unleash Your Inner Goddess” which explores a more sensual and slow side of yoga combined with visual meditations. Guaranteed to begin waking up your yoni and tapping you into your inner essence. I want to teach this more. Maybe some weekend retreats as well allowing more depth into the exploration of ourselves and what holds us back from loving our body and sexuality as women ...
Hmmmm I wonder how it will all play out ... those are just my thoughts and ideas for now ... As this unravels I will let you know. But I do know my full potential is being shown to me and my unbridled passion is bursting out. Let the Magic lead ... I’m open to my purpose.
I’ve been failing at keeping up with my #motivationalmonday posts but instead have been really focusing on my mental health the past few weeks. Here’s an unfiltered selfie of a new and happy version of myself that was hiding for the past couple years under layers that I finally have been able to shed. Let me tell you, life is so much lighter and brighter when you finally learn to let go. I’ve been busy meditating with crystals and rocks and things... getting fascinated with #metaphysicalhealing has really transformed my perspective of thinking and my view of life. Call me a crazy witch but this new for me method of mental cleansing is SO cool and so healthy. ✨ #mentalhealth#selfie#nofilter#crystalhealing#positivity#witchesofinstagram#vegan#whatveganslooklike

Saturday night with my best bitch.. ❤️❤️❤️ 15 years strong! 😘
This is the type of sandwich us vegans dream about ✨
This is a bacon tempeh, tomato, whipped avocado, @barrelnbrine kimchi, sprouts, and spicy mayo sandwich. It’s a mouthful to say and a mouthful to bite! @breadhive has changed the lunch game one vegan sandwich at a time.

I always get a lot of questions on what my every day food looks like and it’s basically a big salad with sweet potatoes. this type of meal is so incredibly filling and HEALTHY and will give you energy as well as make your skin glow. don’t forget to add some legumes to your salad though bc they have so many nutrients and minerals as well!!! need to bake some sweet potatoes after I come back from the gym today 😂

I do want to clarify that while I do track my weight week to week that is not my main focus, this actually started as a mental health journey and the weight loss was just an added bonus 🙌🏻
Hey folks, 1lb loss this week 😊. Ive not been doing intermittent fasting at all, ive been trying to work on my intuitive eating and listening to my body, ive been enjoying the process of learning about my body 😊.
I’m a MASSIVE supporter of non scale victory’s and are actually my favourites as scales can be very deceiving and leave you feeling let down, so what I’m trying to say is don’t let the scales be your primary focus of your journey 😊
Remember to try and love yourself as you are now and don’t let the numbers on a scale define your happiness or your self worth, you are more than enough, mental health is much more important than numbers on a scale, take care of your mind and your body will follow.
The only reason to change is for yourself, never change for someone else.
Remember folks that setting yourself with smaller more attainable goals means you will less likely to fail and get discouraged, just take your time and enjoy your journey 😊
I’ve also been doing my yoga (“Yoga With Adriene” on YouTube) I’ve also started walking, cycling and running.
I just want to thank everyone for you constant supportive comments that you leave me i can’t tell you how much it means to me and how much it pushes me forward, so thank you so very much 😊🙏
