Yesterday was my speech following the play Blackbird. The first picture is of me, the director and one of the actors. The second picture is during one of my intense moments and the third is a picture of me with fellow advocate and speaker Valerie Munroe. Hopefully, through all the mud I drug people through, they can see the true meaning, which is perseverance, trust, faith and love. I try and show just how low I had gotten in order to inspire others in a low position that they too can rise up. We all want immediate results, but it's taken me more than just these past 6yrs to get to this point, it's been a lifetime in the making. If you are struggling and you hear just how bad I've struggled, hopefully it will give you inspiration and momentum that will lead you to also overcome your obstacles.

Love this #quote from the @paramore song “Last Hope”. I DO have hope, though (Which is why I didn’t tag the song.) Read the #lyrics carefully. #iamnolongerafraidofhurting #ihavehope #womanveteran #nolongeravictim #survivor #womenwithptsd #womenveterans #goinghome

As my time here draws to an end, I find myself being a bit melancholy. I’ve gotten so used to the beauty that surrounds me. I never once thought I’d find so much natural history, art, hiking, and just miles of surrounding trees and grass in NEW JERSEY!! (Who knew?! Certainly not me!) I will be forever grateful for the hospitality and the kindness of the people I’ve encountered here. Especially the staff where I am in residence for the next 3 days. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without them. #newjersey #baskingridge #womanveteran #nolongeravictim #survivor #womenwithptsd #recovery #thankyou 💕

#Reposting from the beautiful @stark_fit_life ・・・
I love the feeling the next day after an awesome work out when my muscles are a bit sore knowing that I did some work. This past week I have gone up in lifting weight which feels great. I am starting out slow and consistent. I am looking forward to an awesome opportunity for a 28 day challenge put on by @savagebabecoaching to help jump start my fitness goal of competing next year! My trainer, @d.tiny.stark, and the most supportive husband ever has helped me get this far, however it is time to push my limits to even more and see what I can truly do. :
Let’s kick some ass this weekend and stay positive!

Thought I would do a wee introduction. My name is Charnelle, I was born in Nuneaton, a small town in Northern Warwickshire, England, on November 11th 1991. I’m the youngest of 5 bought up by two of the most wonderful parents in this world.
.
My childhood was cut short at the age of 12 when I started getting abused by my cousins husband. This went on for 3 years before I managed to get help and report him. I have never publicly spoken about this but after years of trying to heal I realise that by hiding what happened to me all I’m doing is protecting him and the so called family that stuck by him and what he did to me. I want people to know that’s it’s ok to talk and to not be afraid. I refuse to be the victim anymore. It’s time to move on and I’m hoping by opening up on here will help.
.
In 2009 my parents decided we would immigrate to Whakatane, New Zealand, a small town on the North Island in the Eastern bay of plenty. I honestly hated it! 17 years old and taken from everything I knew. It was a nightmare. I never truly let myself fall in love with this beautiful town!!
.
Fast forward almost ten years, I’m still here. 3 kids, own house and an amazing man by my side! Ok I skipped a lot but you don’t need to hear everything in one go. I’ll let you process this snippet first. .
.
So I’m still not too sure what this account will be for. I’m pretty sure it will be a way to express my feelings more openly, talk about my anxiety disorder and my struggles with ptsd. I hope to be able to connect with other survivors or those being abused so they know that they are not alone!! For now thanks for reading and I’ll be back soon.

Fantastic news to share!! I’ll be heading home next week and I’m so thrilled. So much has changed....I’VE CHANGED. I’m definitely *not* the same person I was when I got here. I know it won’t be easy to go home and put these changes into place, but I’m ready. #nolongeravictim #womanveteran #survivor #ptsdawareness #headinghome #recoverywarrior

I am a person who is absolutely in love with programs, products and a community of like minded people who provide support.
Support that can guarantee life of purpose and success as long as the decision to commit is there.

I'm looking for 10 people who want to join me for the ride: 🔹10 PEOPLE who want to get in shape and pay it forward! 🔸10 PEOPLE who are no longer a victim of their circumstance and are ready for CHANGE. 🔹10 PEOPLE who want to get away from the 9-5
🔸10 PEOPLE who eventually want to fire their boss

Is this you!? Send me a DM/PM and let's start building a future! 🤗

Some thoughts on nutrition this mornin’ ... as we go about our daily routines, the biggest challenge for pretty much everyone is food. Going to the gym is -relatively- easy. The hard part is exercising discipline and self control when it comes to what you are gonna put in your mouth today. Try to make at LEAST one good food choice a day, when you are first starting out.
Depending on what your goals and timetable are, you’ll have to obviously tweak that to fit what you are trying to accomplish but just know, we ALL struggle with this. Education, and a little bit of will power will go a long way to helping your success!

🚨Long post alert 🚨 As some of you know, a couple years ago a clinical psychologist diagnosed me with PTSD due to the spiritual and emotional abuse inflicted by my parents and siblings, after it had come to a head. I went through all kinds of emotional roller coasters when I finally woke up to the reality of the crazy family dynamics I had been a part of all my life. I’ve always been an honest empathic person always ready to admit my faults which is the reason I was naturally conditioned and gaslighted to be the family scapegoat. Of course my siblings were perfectly happy with that arrangement because now all the family problems could be blamed on me. The hardest part of healing from that abuse was that I had to do it completely alone with God’s help because everyone who *thinks* they know my family believes that my family walks on water next to Jesus. The crazy thing is that I used to be one of them. I used to worship my parents the way my siblings still do. That was until one day the blinders fell off my face when God started sending me red flags to show me that I’ve been living under deception and oppression. But even after several ignored attempts at begging my family to sit down with me so we could reconcile our differences I had to cut ties. The only way they would accept a relationship with me would be if I went crawling back to them on my knees and “repent” of problems *they* created. Thank God He saved me and my children and husband from that insanity before I lost my mind! But after all that, I now realize how strong I actually am. If I could stand up against my entire family and all the mutual acquaintances who *think* they know them??!! Who does something like that unless they have a legitimate reason??!! I’ve also come to realize that nobody has to understand my journey. And that goes for all of you out there who are dealing with your own issues. The important thing is that YOU believe in YOU! You and God know the truth and that’s all that matters! Now I am so thankful for the artistic talents God gave me. He continues to use them in my life to bring healing to my heart, mind and soul. So when you see my art, you are witnessing my heart being mended.

Lord make the ‘is’ into ‘was’
Let me no longer be a victim
But a survivor
Take the fight you’ve already won
Take the blur from my eyes
Let me see clearly
Unwind my paths and make them straight

Working on myself today and discovered some new things about how I got to this point; it has literally blown my mind. I'm so grateful for the help I've been getting to return to my stronger, more confident self. It's a journey full of ups and downs but as long as I keep pushing I will get there. Who knows, I may even come out stronger and better than before!

What’s in the background...... thinking this morning about what we rarely see. Namely, the things in the background. The background is where all the work takes place that gets you to (ultimately) where you want to go. The background is where you pay your dues, each and everyday.
Have a clear vision of what you want to achieve, in the foreground. But put the work in on the backside and watch your own picture come into focus. Hard work. Days of consistent action and, humility in all things.

For most of my life I identified as a victim - Why does this always happen to me? Why me?! Why can’t anything go right for me?! You get the point. It’s exhausting to constantly feel sorry for yourself, and easy to blame the universe for everything and take zero responsibility. Since taking some time to focus on me and how I can grow and become a better person, I feel victimized less and less frequently. Sure I still have my moments, but by and large, when the going gets tough I can easily say “Try Me” and that feels amazing. Try this on for size today: anytime you feel like something isn’t going your way or that you’ve fallen victim to something awful, instead of saying “why me” say “try me” and see if that doesn’t turn things around 😏

A word about active rest days... and that word is, DO THEM! Everyone (even those of us working on our comeback) need to take a little time off from the weight pile. But, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do anything at all. Take a rest day, for sure, but make it an active rest day. Go for a walk, foam roll and stretch, or do what I did today and go for a bike ride. Explored 6 miles of the green belt today all the way out to Eagle and a very cool outdoor art festival. Take a day of rest. Be active. Explore. Have an unexpected adventure and LIVE LIFE! :

Let’s go back to the Christmas party at my tio Alex’s........
You sit and smile I hide in the dark....you’re out in the light as I try to hide behind a smile...as you are one of the favorites but what if they knew what is someone did it to your mom or sisters the scares I feel never heal and people don’t know the nightmares I have every night I asked you to stop people see me as the fuck up. I still remember how heavy your body felt on top of me...... how your breath smelled like alcohol as tears filled my eyes not knowing what to say as you ripped me apart you said never speak of it the burning in my throat telling me scream you gave me damage!!!! And I’m left with the after math!!!! It ends today. #nolongeravictim #speakout #survivor

Don’t get too close...It’s dark inside...It’s where my demons hide - @imaginedragons.
..
I’ve been working on mine for more than 3 years. Luckily, I now have more good days than bad. Often times it’s because I choose to have good days. But sometimes my mind can’t help but get lost in the dark.
..
Everyday day I choose to see the light and let it shine-inside & out. Therapy helps. Exercise helps. Being surrounded by good people help. My husband & my girls help. Life helps.
..
We all have demons. Some more than others. You never know what someone is going through or struggling with.
..
The best thing I have done and have experienced is kindness. One smile, a kind word and even a hug could be all someone needs for a moment. And that moment makes a difference.
..
Today’s therapy session was a 7 mile run. Feeling lighter & brighter as the day goes on.
..
Happy Friday!

Years of yo-yo dieting...emotional rollercoasters...states of depression and happiness...abandonments...broken relationships🎢 The affects of violations and abuse can often be invisible and disguised as something else. I masked mine well. I was silent for many years. I lived in mental anguish daily. On the outside, I portrayed strength, dedication, semi-happiness, humility, and focus. On the inside however I was quite the polar opposite. I was broken, bitter, angry, felt conflicted, guilty, dirty, insignificant, unworthy, and hopeless. My body changed as the situations of my life changed. This went on for 12 years. Finally, I had enough! I finally realized that the violators were not impacted by my self-harming decisions. Solely I was ruining my life. So I woke up, decided to put the past behind me, forgive daily, and change my mental, emotional, and physical state of being. It’s but the grace of God I have accomplished all I have. He has given me the strength to power on and break the bondage. I look back at where I started and am amazed of all I have accomplished. If I can do it, you can do it! It all starts with choice. You will know when enough is enough✨ #strength #determination #weightlossjourney #fitnesstransformation #healthylifestyle #mindsetmatters #nolongeravictim

I couldn't deal anymore. I had to do the right thing. She had been calling and messaging me asking to bring some snacks and beverages to her pity party. But today I honestly thought ENOUGH is ENOUGH. This is literally what I wrote to her:
"I'm not going to even entertain this conversation. I am not going to be your enabler. Just get off your ass and stop feeling sorry for yourself. You ARE competent and you CAN do this. It might take a little bit of work/effort from your side but just friggin' do it. Enough is enough. You don't have the kids today right? So go home, turn off your phone and DO THE WORK!" I must say that since I realized how people revel in their role of being the victim, I seem to have less patience for this kind of behavior. I'm all FIRED UP 🔥 .
Why do people enjoy their little pity parties? Why is it always someone else's fault that your life has gone to hell? Or circumstances that caused for things to spiral out of control.
YOU have the power, YOU are the creator of your reality. YOU, YOU and no one else but YOU.

When the sh*t hits the fan, be conscious about how you react to that situation. You can be a victim but you have the power to choose not to behave like a victim. Don't end up losing the people who care about you. Playing a victim drains the energy of all around you.

If you need someone to kick your butt into gear I'll do it. Just send me a PM. I promise I will not take it easy on you 😉 and you will thank me for it later.

The difference between these 2 pictures??..... 10 years. And much, much more! 10 years ago today I left a physically and emotionally abusive relationship. From somewhere I found the strength to finally walk away. And since then I have only grown stronger and more determined to stand up to domestic abuse.

It isn’t necessarily about weight loss but about how you feel about yourself, yes you, not your family, friends or spouse/significant other, YOU! Only you are putting the work in, love yourself first, take care of yourself! Let’s rock it today!

When I was pregnant with Austin, I spent nearly a whole week in hospital, I had a few people message me. My family and one or 2 friends stepped up to help. That was it. Today I’ve come out of surgery, and I’ve had so many messages I can’t answer them all, I’ve already had someone come to visit and bring food, people lined up to help with the kids and more support than I know what to do with.
That’s the difference a year can make, that’s the difference it makes being allowed to leave my house and reply to text messages. I have friends and support now, and I’m allowed to accept it. So to everyone who has reached out, THANKYOU. You’ve reminded me once again how blessed I am, how loved I am and how worthy I am. Because of something as simple as a message, food parcel and offering to help with the kids, I can can take another step in overcoming the abuse I was subjected to. #nolongeravictim

@three.tokes I wanna bring attention to a serious issue.... Domestic Violence. For the past 7 months i’ve sat and endured endless physical and verbal attacks for countless pointless reasons. It is never okay for anyone in a relationship to put their hands on their significant other. It takes a weak and insecure person to get violent with someone especially if that person would never raise a hand back. Ive had black eyes, bloody noses, perforated ear drums and loss of hearing, bruises all over my body and none of it was worth it. No one’s “love” is worth being trapped in a mental prison. I couldn’t work, couldn’t speak to any man even friends, couldn’t get sick or it ruined his day, couldn’t experience any emotion but delusional happiness or i’d get in trouble. He’s left me stranded and stole my car multiple times... crashed it twice, and never ever showed remorse for what he did. All he did was care about himself. Angel Martinez you are a monster. You stole not only my things, but you stole my time and energy. You tried to take my worth but i wont let you. If you or anyone you know does business with @thcinmypisss please know he is a bad person who has no hesitation to attack women. He may have completely destroyed my entire @mr.voorhees glass collection but i am still in one piece. If you or anyone you know is trapped in domestic violence please reach out..... your life matters and it is on the line. Get help even if it feels like the scariest thing you could ever do. @three.tokes #DomesticViolence #awareness #getout #survivor #nolongeravictim

Sunday, back in the gym to train! Stole a routine I saw @lilaznwidbarbell post last week, modified it a little for me, and got to work. Fantastic day! Feeling amazing and ready to go forward and keep my comeback momentum! Inspiration is where you find it! We all suffer setbacks and complications, the trick is to keep moving forward and make progress even when life hands you those inevitable complications. Work at your own pace, but stay focused, and positive and KNOW you are kicking ass! :

Self love requires honesty and openness. It requires compassion and forgiveness.
Love is work. So why do we think self love should be easy?
Can you sit rooted firmly in the truth of who you are without needing the justification of others?
Do you sit rooted in non judgement of yourself and others?
Root down in your truth and let go of what others are doing around you. It’s not your place to be concerned.
Look inside. Look in you.
Your imperfections make you YOU.
Your emotions and tears and laughter all make you, you.
They make you uniquely and unapologetically beautiful.
Love isn’t easy. And loving your whole self often isn’t easy.
Choices you made, circumstances you were in. They may shape who you are but they don’t define you.
Maybe if we are lucky we allow them to grow us into something even more awesome.
Walk your own path unconditionally accept yourself and let go of what others may have said or done in trying to shape you.
That isn’t truth.
Take the leap. Look inside. Decide today to love, really love who you are. Accept circumstances that brought here.
When i talk about who i was 20 years ago, it’s as if I’m reading pages from a book with a character i don’t know. I tried to bury her.
Lately I’ve realized she isn’t going anywhere until i learn to forgive, love, and let go.
So here i sit rooted in my truth that #iamenough

While watching @staronfox, they shared a truth that resonated with me: “It’s a choice to be broken.” #Selah

Although God’s #amazinggrace made me whole some time ago, it is a great reminder that daily, I must make a choice to operate in that wholeness...that completeness. I must lay my burdens down and die to my flesh on a daily basis so that God can use me as a testament of His Love for His people. #NoLongerAVictim #WillYouChooseWholeness #OrBrokeness

When I say the word boundaries, what do you think of? I think of boundaries like rules for kids...or furry kids. I think of someone telling me what to do. I think the setting boundaries outside of the normal ones, also feels a little selfish. For example, if I say no, I can’t work overtime this weekend because I have plans with my family. Or no, I can’t lead the events team, even though I do that as my day job, but I am still willing to be a part of the team.

Brene Brown, the amazing author of The Gifts of Imperfection, says that, “Compassionate people are boundaried people. The heart of compassion is really acceptance. The better we are at accepting ourselves and others, the more compassionate we become. Well, it’s difficult to accept people when they are hurting us or taking advantage of us or walking all over us.” What she says makes sense, right? If I say yes to working over the weekend when I already had plans, it makes me bitter. It certainly doesn't make me like my boss or my job more. It doesn’t make me happier. It doesn’t allow me the time I need over the weekend to refresh myself. It makes my family annoyed that we made plans and then I am cancelling at the last minute which causes more tension in my world.

If we flip that thinking and look at boundaries as a compassionate act of self care then it becomes a whole lot easier to say, “I know you need a lead for your events team but that just isn’t me right now. I’m happy to still help as a teammate if you’d like.” When you say it from a place of compassionate intention, out the door goes the guilt and the pressure to please others and in comes a happier, healthier me. And that’s what we want, right? A happier, healthier self who can really engage on the things that are most important to us?

Take a little time to think through this concept of setting boundaries as an act of compassion and self care. Where do you need to set up boundaries in your life? Want some help figuring it out? Let’s talk!

There are lessons to be learned from our past. We can let them continue to rule over us or we can let them go, let it out, and move on. This morning I decided I was done letting things I’ve been holding on to for nearly 20 years effect me. I’m no longer going to play a victim to those who abused me, used me, and brought me down. It hurts to talk about the past, but it’s freeing to let it all go. I’m thankful for the pain.. it made me stronger and I have found people who truly love me and support me. Im breaking chains. I’ve prayed about doing this for a long time and today the motivation is in me and I’m trusting in the holy spiritual to guide me on doing it all the right way. #free #nolongeravictim #trustinchrist #inchristalone #ihaveworth #mypastmatters #truth #christian #catholic
