. . ♥️7am Post of The Day♥️ . . 💥The Types of Toxic People You Should Avoid at All Costs💥 . . 2️⃣The Emotional Expresser📢😭😞 Being vulnerable enough to talk about feelings can be valuable in relationships, but sometimes people take this too far. The emotional expresser loves talking about feelings, but they never do this in a constructive way. This is the person who repeatedly tells you how something makes them feel, but they never take any action to improve bad situations. . . It is so easy to fall into this trap of talking instead of taking action. If you hang out with an emotional expresser, sooner or later, you may become just like them. People like this can become so caught up in discussing their feelings that they lose the ability to solve their problems. This is not a productive or healthy way to live. . . The emotional expresser comes to you with a personal problem that must be fixed. They’ll tell you about their terrible relationship, how they need to lose weight or how evil their boss is, but they aren’t willing to do anything to solve their problems. They won’t cut ties with the person harming them, won't take action on a sustainable food / training program & they won’t look for a new job. . . Any suggestion that you make for how they can improve their lives will be met with resistance. “I can’t do that…” and “I’ve already tried that…” are the default responses that the emotional expresser will give to you when you challenge them to face their problems head on. . . When you allow this toxic person into your life, you set yourself up for a depressing, infuriating, emotionally exhausting experience. It can feel harsh to cut these types of people out of your life, but if they’re having a negative effect on you, then you need to act. You have a limited amount of time & energy to apply to all the things that you want to do with your life. Don’t allow a toxic emotional expressor to rob you of your potential. . . For a little fun comment with your best emojis depicting an emotional expressor! and... go! hehe 😩😵🥴🤬🤥🤫 . . Ps thanks Rusty for day 2 of modelling 🤭

. . ♥️7am Post of the Day♥️ . . 💥The Types of Toxic People You Should Avoid at All Costs💥 . . Nobody strikes up a relationship hoping that it will be a drain on productivity & happiness. Unless you pay careful attention, toxic people weasel their way into your life & use your mental energy, patience & happiness without you realizing it. . . We have all encountered people like this, & some of us may have even been toxic people at some point in our lives. If we really are the sum of the five people we associate with the most, it is crucial to avoid these five types of toxic people. . . 1️⃣The Gossiper🗣️🗣️🗣️🗣️ The gossiper is a crafty person, to out things lightly. They make you feel like they are bringing you into the fold by sharing delicate information with you. It seems like all they do is gather & disperse chitchat about other people. When someone wants to talk to you about someone else behind their back, it is almost always a toxic situation. It doesn’t add value to your life, & if the gossiper will talk to you, you can be sure that they’re also talking about you to someone else. . . This is the person at work that corners you during break time & talks badly about another coworker’s performance. When the person feels that they can come to you, they’ll be likely to repeat this over & over. People see you together, and they may even label you as a gossiper just for being associated with this type of toxic person. . . If you think about what you can get from the conversation, it is most likely that these talks will not benefit you in anyway. In fact, associating with a gossiper could really hurt you. Think about how you’d feel if you knew someone was talking about you behind your back. Now imagine someone catching you in the middle of a gossipy exchange. We don’t need that type of drama in our lives. . . Comment with the word 💥GOSSIP💥 if you have had to deal with this ins some way this past year. Care to share some Insight? Comment below ♥️♥️ . .
. . 🚫Toxic People Are Like Soft Drinks, They Will Kill You Slowly🚫 . . Cigarettes & drugs can kill you quickly, but toxic people are more like soft drinks. When you drink a soda, it is unlikely to cause you immediate harm, & it certainly shouldn’t kill you. If you drink a soda every day, though, you may notice the negative health effects of your soft drink consumption. . . In the same way, toxic people slowly drain you of your vitality. The more energy you spend on them, the more stressed & empty you feel. Some of them create such a negative force in your life that they can turn you into a toxic person without you realizing it. . . You may enjoy the temporary high of drinking a Coke (fresca is my jam), but drinking them habitually can cause diabetes & obesity. Hanging out with that toxic individual may seem okay at first, but in the end you’ll feel tired & used . . Get ready for tomorrow's theme of the week, getting rid of TOXIC PEOPLE! Comment with a ♥️♥️♥️ if you are ready for tomorrow's 7am Post!🌅 . .
. . 🚫REJECTION🚫7am Post of the Day🌅 . . Why these pictures? Symbolizes rejection! TOP 100 HOT & FIT SUBMISSION PICTURES FROM 2015- THAT WERE REJECTED after placing 3rd the year before. 💥 . . Was I not hot enough? Not fit enough? Who knows, but I remember this rejection & how good it felt! I submitted pictures that I felt were hot, fit & classy. It just wasn't fitting the look of the magazine... Which I knew submitting them. The amazing thing was that for once I was actually ok with the rejection I faced ♥️ . . 5️⃣The best thing you can do is to keep going💥💥 Don’t be afraid to get back up – to try again, to love again, to live again & to dream again. Don’t let a rejection harden your heart. Life’s best lessons are often learned at the worst times & from the worst mistakes. There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong. And you might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t. When you feel like quitting, remember that sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right. Sometimes you have to go through the worst, to arrive at your best. . . Yes, life is tough, but you are tougher. Find the strength to laugh every day. Find the courage to feel different, yet beautiful. Find it in your heart to make others smile too. Don’t stress over things you can’t change. Live simply. Love generously. Speak truthfully. Work diligently. And even if you fall short, keep going. Keep growing. . . The floor is yours… are you ready to face rejection in a new way? Comment with a ♥️♥️♥️ if you will start looking at rejection in a different way - one that empowers & strengthens you. Love Jill xoxo . .
. . 🚫REJECTION🚫 7am Post of the Day🌅 . . You are a unique individual with unique tastes, preferences & perspectives. What might appeal to you, may not necessarily appeal to others. This is a good thing because it makes life interesting & diverse. As humans we certainly have many things in common, however, we’re not mindless robots who do the same thing, live the same way, have the same outlook on life. As a result, there will be conflicts & you are therefore likely to face rejection many times throughout your life. . . Whether you’re rejected in a personal or business situation, you must accept that getting rejected is an unavoidable & necessary part of life. This is a good thing because rejection is necessary for reinventing yourself, for learning new things & for personal growth. In fact, getting rejected can be a blessing in disguise & extremely advantageous if handled appropriately. However, you must learn from the experience & look at the silver lining behind each rejection you face. . . 4️⃣Rejection gives us new ways of looking at things💥 Everybody gets tunnel vision once in a while. We focus on one goal, one person, or one dream to the exclusion of all else. Rejection can give us a time to pause & take another look at our objectives & how we’re trying to meet them. In this case, the idea is to look around with new eyes & consider, not only new ways of getting to the same goal, but how we view our goals & dreams. . . In the end, when it comes to rejection, it’s all a numbers game. Not everyone will say “yes” to you & at the same time, not everyone will reject you. However, by viewing rejection as a learning experience will certainly help you to improve your odds & get more “yes’s” in the future. Agree? ⬇️Comment ⬇️with a YES! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ . .

. . 🚫REJECTION🚫 7am Post of the Day🌅 . . The old saying that what does not kill us makes us stronger can be true particularly when pertaining to rejection. When I look back at the “nos,” the lack of responses & the disappointments I have had in my life, I appreciate how much I have overcome. It makes me feel strong & more resilient in the face of more rejection (and in life, more rejection is always guaranteed). “So what?” . . 3️⃣Rejection Makes Us Stronger 💪💪 . . Rejection can often feel like it brings you to a complete halt, but in reality it gives you something to push against. People do not grow stronger when everything is working for them, but when they are forced to cope with the unexpected or the undesirable. In this way, rejection helps us by showing us just how strong, resourceful & capable we really are when the chips are down. . . So remember this, rejection means nothing at all - in fact it can be a prelude to something wonderful happening, especially when we trust there is a greater meaning behind it which in time will be revealed to us. . . So when you are rejected - get back up! Never, ever give up on your dreams. Nothing makes my day, more than hearing from you… and you know the drill ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ . . Photography 📸 @allenlhgfx ♥️♥️
. . 🚫REJECTION🚫 7am Post of the Day🌅 . . Rejection is an unfortunate but necessary part of the human experience. Everyone experiences rejection at some point in their life, whether they realize it or not. What many people who experience this don’t ever realize are the benefits of rejection. While this may sound self-contradictory, ask anyone who’s ever been turned down for a job or had someone they cared about say they weren’t interested in the person that way. Most of the time rejection can actually be a very positive thing, if you just look at it the right way… which I will teach you all week long! . . 2️⃣Rejection Causes Us To Explore Different Paths⭐ . . Sometimes rejection is life’s way of telling us we need to look at a different path to get where we want to be. Maybe the path we’re trying to take to get to our goals is all wrong for us, or maybe there’s a better way & we just haven’t realized it yet. Rejection can be a positive experience if you’re willing to take another road or try a new way of achieving the same thing. . . Comment with a ♥️♥️♥️ if you remember a time when rejection led you down a totally different path! Or you can share your story in the comments with the rest of the 7am Crew! 💪💪💪 . . For me: Being rejected for an IFBB Pro Card (Ok 3x rejected) led me back to school where I studied Functional Medicine & most recently enrolling at Laurier University for Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (where I will specialize in Weight Management). Looking back it was one rejection that served me VERY well! . . Photography 📸 @allenlhgfx ♥️
. . 🚫REJECTION🚫 7am Post of the Day🌅 . . Growing up, I hated the feeling or even the possibility of rejection, because it felt like I was disappointing or burdening someone. It was as if I wasn’t worthy enough of their time or attention. But that’s not what rejection is. Rejection doesn’t mean someone doesn’t like you or your ideas. . . Maybe they have too many things on their plate. Maybe they’re learning to say no more often & set healthier boundaries for themselves. Maybe they’re not interested at the moment. Sometimes, you just don’t know. And trying to pinpoint the reason every time rejection happens is going to drive you crazy. . . If I could give my younger self a piece of advice, it would be this: Rejection is a good thing, it means you’re showing up & trying. Rejection isn’t something to feel ashamed about. I see too many women afraid of even the possibility of rejection, that they fail to even try pursing their dreams. . . It's time to take last week's theme of CHANGE & do something about this! All week I will share with you 5️⃣ ways rejection helps us grow & makes us stronger 💪💪 . . 1️⃣YOU’RE SHOWING UP TO THE PARTY🎉🎉 . . Most people don’t ever show up & put themselves out there because of their fear of rejection. They’re scared that what they say isn’t good enough, valuable enough or worthy enough. When you put yourself out there, there’s a good chance that you’re going to mess up (we all do & it’s really just a part of life) & you’re going to be imperfect. If you keep showing up and getting better, eventually a favorable results will happen ... In some form!! Keep going💪💪💪💪 . . What is one thing in life YOU kept showing up for? Kept putting the work in? Comment ⬇️ or use the 7am Crew symbol of ♥️♥️♥️ to send out some love for this weeks theme. Happy Monday xoxo . .

. . ♥️MAKE A CHANGE♥️ 7am Post of The Day🌅 . . How comfortable are you with change? If you are looking to ‘change your life’ then you must accept that this will involve some ‘change.’ Embracing change & facing up to new challenges is a romantic image that we all like to fantasize about. We like to read about it in books & watch it in movies & picture ourselves as the hero or heroine taking on these new challenges. However, when it comes to reality, we are all different. Not all of us deal with change in the same way. We all have different comfort levels with it & some of us struggle to embrace it or to get excited by it. What can you do to embrace change? . . 5️⃣Imagine💥💥💥💥 . . ➡️Imagine The Worst💥 What, specifically are you fearful about? Name it. Say it out loud. Then ask yourself, “What is the worst thing that could happen if I take this risk?” Even if you run smack into a wall on your way to making a life change, then at least you will have gained some insight & knowledge. You may even find this knowledge gives you courage to tackle more risks. No matter what the scenario, you will have gained the power & influence to decide your own response. . . ➡️Imagine The Best💥 Imagine how your life will be different & better once you initiate change in your life. Anticipate the joy, the excitement & the empowerment that comes from being a leader in your own life. Begin with small steps, but take action. There are no “miracles” in successful life changes. It may take some time to see results. The only instant change is in attitude. You’ll finally be in charge of the direction & outcome of your life. Imagine the best, then live it! . . Are you up for changing your life? Honestly? Whether change excites us or scares us we need to accept it and work with it. If the thought of making a radical change in your life & taking you & your loved ones out of your known comfort zone makes you a little scared, then that doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t do it, or that you’re not the right person for the job. It simply means that you’re human.♥️♥️♥️♥️ . . Photography 📸 @lhgfxphoto
. . ♥️MAKE A CHANGE♥️ 7am Post of The Day🌅 . . There was a time in my life when I felt hopeless & depressed. I was stuck in the past. I spent my time freaked out, playing small, denying & hiding from fear. I felt like nobody was on my side & I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I didn’t see a way out. I was afraid that the future would only bring more of the same. I hated my life. . . One day, when I couldn’t stand the pain, craziness or drama any longer… I wanted to feel happy, I wanted to feel passion, I wanted to be fully alive! I decided that I would do whatever it took to change. A big part of it was facing my fears in order to thrive. . . . 4️⃣Face Your Fears💥 . . ➡️Act Before Crisis💥 At its simplest, fear is an internal warning cry that danger is nearby & we had better do something about it. Many times it takes a warning cry like a marriage failure or a worrisome medical diagnosis to realize we need to make changes. Do not wait for a crisis to occur to have an awakening about the quality & value of your life. Begin making changes now, & you will be more prepared once any crisis has occurred. . . ➡️Do Not Let Comfort Control You💥 Move past the comfort of fears. Fears are familiar & therefore mislead us into thinking they are just a part of who you are. We ruminate over them, which leads us to live our lives in a state of self-preservation. While life cannot be a 24-hour thrill ride, you deserve more than just contentment. Expand your comfort zone & allow yourself the opportunity for awareness & inspiration. . . Today is your beginning point. Make every day new. When you choose to live life in the present & confront & overcome your fear, life is exciting, you feel empowered & you fill your life with curiosity & wonder… thats where change can happen! ♥️♥️ . .
. . ♥️MAKE A CHANGE♥️ 7am Post of The Day🌅 . . Our purpose & priorities shape how we grow our tree of life. They shape the choices we make at each fork in the road we face. Since starting these posts, I’ve talked about the importance of the choices we make. Add up your choices & that’s your life. Change your choices & change your life. Sounds easy enough … except its anything but easy. . . If we really want to change our life for the better, it’s not just our choices that have to change. Those choices are not going to change simply because we will them to. You can’t order yourself to change your choices. Choices are the effect. So what’s can we do? . . 3️⃣Focus On Priorities . . ➡️Value Your Needs♥️ Many of us spend all our time, effort & energy meeting the needs of other people. Remember, we need to place value on our own needs as well. Without a focused priority, we may become molded by our environment, & that can foster a stagnate life . . ➡️Value Your Time♥️ Do not play the “when-then game.” Don’t tell yourself, “When the children are grown, I’ll take some time for myself.” Or, “When I feel like I can make a difference, I will look for a new job.” Sometimes we wait our whole lives for a “when” that never comes. Value time & do not assume you have until “forever” to take a risk & make a change that can propel your life in new directions. . . This September are you going to make a change by putting more VALUE on how you live your life? comment with ♥️♥️♥️ if you are with me & the 7am Crew! Love you guys 💥💥💥💥 . .
. . ♥️MAKE A CHANGE♥️ 7am Post of The Day🌅 . . It's natural to resist change. But that doesn't have to be the case. Far from it. Change is actually good for us in both our personal & professional lives; since it makes us more flexible, exposes us to new experiences and people & opens up the doors to more opportunities. . . However, if you want to make a change in your life, you have to be able to ACCEPT RISKS! . 2️⃣Accept Risks💥 . . ➡️Understand Everything Is Risky💥 Change is a fact of life & participating in change means stepping into the unknown. It means taking a risk. Wouldn’t life be boring if we always knew outcomes before actions? The riskiest step is always the first. But with every step in the right direction, your courage muscles get stronger. . . ➡️Realize Risk Leads To Growth💥 Growth always involves risk & risk always involves fear. Unfortunately, some people wait for an ironclad guarantee that everything will work out exactly right, until all risk is removed & they stagnate where they are. Don’t wait on the sidelines while the world passes you by. . . If you are willing to take a risk & make a change, comment with ♥️♥️♥️♥️ Or if you’re feeling up to is, let the 7AM Crew know what risk you are wiling to take? . . For me, I am going to take a risk & create a cookbook!😮😮 . . Photography 📸 @allenlhgfx ♥️
. . ♥️MAKE A CHANGE♥️ 7am Post of The Day🌅 . . Life can be difficult & uncertain, especially when faced with the prospect of change. Although change is often the key that will positively alter the path of our lives, we shy away from it for fear of leaving behind our comfort zones & entering into the unknown. This fear robs us of our freedom to make the life choices that can bridge the gap between where we are & where we want to be. It may take courage to move from the known to the unknown, but the price of growth is a sacrifice of certainty. . . This week I will give you my top 5️⃣ Tips on how to make a REAL change this September! 💪 . . 1️⃣ Be Honest 💥 . . ➡️Identify Excuses You may be unhappy in a number of areas of your life but complaining about it does not change effect change. Are you just skillfully playing the victim role? If you have chosen to stay stuck due to fear, then the change you need is not going to appear on its own. Be honest with yourself. Identify the excuses & rationale that have been keeping you in your life “as is. . . ➡️Take responsibility: Only you can change you. Motivation must come from within. Take responsibility & closely look at what part of your life has kept you imprisoned from your own potential. Don’t blame your own refusal to make changes based on external things. . . If you are ready to make a REAL change this September; whether it relates to fitness, health, business, finances or relationships then comment with ✋✋✋ & lets make this MONTH a successful one! ♥️♥️ . .
. . ♥️GOLF & BODY TRANSFORMATIONS = PATIENCE♥️ . . The difference between the two photos is 7 years & roughly 50lbs. 💥😮💥 . . When I golf, I have NO patience! I call golf, “Wack F**k.” You wack the ball & then say F**k 🙊🙊 . . I easily get frustrated, often throwing a temper tantrum, insulting myself saying “I suck” and then packing it in by throwing my clubs. The same thing can be said for most body transformation attempts. People “wack” a plan together, throw diet pills and excess training mythologies hoping it works... to only be disappointed weeks later and say “F**k I am hopeless”. . . When it came to my own transformation, I whole heartedly knew it was going to take time. It wasn’t a smooth road & I had my fair share of obstacles. Many times I felt like I was landing my life in the rough/ bunker / water… anywhere but the fairway. But you know what… those shots were the ones that taught me the most valuable lessons of all. It taught me patience and perseverance. . . Golf is like a body transformation.. no day is the same. When you step up to the tee you have complete control on how much power / focus and drive you put in to your shot. If today is your shot… are you taking it head on? 💥 .
. . 🍞🍞I've gone gluten free before & it didn't help.🍞🍞 . . Working with thyroid & adrenals, I have had a number of clients say I've gone gluten-free before & it didn't help. If this is the case, there are a number of reasons why this can happen: . . 1️⃣ You didn't go gluten free long enough. it can take up to three months to see a dramatic difference 2️⃣You didn't go completely gluten free - You were letting a little gluten seep into your diet, or were getting inadvertent contamination 3️⃣ You are sensitive to gluten cross-reactive foods. These can be triggers, so if you are sensitive you have to take these out too. . . With September being Thyroid Awarness Month, I am offering a specialized program to optimize thyroid / adrenals so you can: ➡️ lose weight ➡️ increase energy ➡️ sleep better . . Get back to the best shape of your life... Just like I did when I took control of my thyroid health ♥️ . .
