Sam Sparks!!! Only taken seriously when my glasses are on and hair is up. Pass the scrunchie.
I went to the @bp_fitnesstradeshow yesterday which was absolutely brilliant listening to some of the most educated people within our industry give their time, knowledge and insight for free. FREE! What I did find sad however was how few women attended and the ratio of male to female speakers just reiterated that there is such an imbalance in how many women are at the top of the tree in the fitness industry in terms of education. We're too busy fitting into glass slippers instead of smashing glass ceilings. Girls this industry needs us!!! Our insight, opinions and understanding of the psychological ins and outs of exercise and nutrition are invaluable. It's great and okay to be exceptionally proud of the glutes and abs we've built and what protein/bands/clothing we use but we have so much more to offer this industry and how we can help other people. We can be BOTH intelligent and sexy, knowledgeable and pretty, articulate and hot. You don't have to be one or the other.
Behind a successful woman should be a big tribe of other women who've always got her back.
This month marks my 10th anniversary as a motorcyclist! Motorcycle tips on my new blog post! Link in bio!
Factory farming is institutionalized oppression.
As a mother, as a woman, how can you still continue to consume dairy products? Baby calves are stolen from their mother within days after birth. If the calf is female she will face the same oppression as the mother.
If he is male, he will be slaughtered as a baby.
Mother cows have been known to cry out for weeks, mouring the loss of their child.
Female cows are forcibly raped and impregnated.
This process is a vicious cycle of the female cow being raped, impregnated, their child stolen from them, and the same process repeated over and over. When she can no longer produce the milk wanted by the dairy farmer, she will then be slaughtered.
Animal agriculture is an industry of abuse, torture, cruelty, suffering and death.
It is also an industry that exploits females, and is responsible for the broken bonds between mother and child.
Ask yourself as a mother, father, or as a human being, why would you still continue to consume products produced from misery?
There are plenty of dairy free products available.
