Happy Transformation Tuesday! I’m on day 9/21 of my challenge and feeling really good.☺️🗓✅

So many people have asked me why I’m doing a ‘Transformation Challenge’ this month... but WHY NOT!? It’s okay to continuously set new goals for yourself and strive for more! My body is no where near perfect and I am always looking to challenge myself in new ways to see what MORE can I achieve. I’m addicted to progress and personal growth. I’m committed to myself and living my best life. I think most people just assume my end goal is to lose weight. Um hello! I’m not crazy - I don’t want to disappear off this earth.😂 I really enjoy these challenges not only for the change aspect but also bc 1.) they keep my health in check 2.) to hopefully motivate others along the way.🙏🏼So there you have it. Let me know if you want to join me on a challenge some time and we can conquer our goals together.💪🏼🔥🚀

PS - this is my “before pic” a couple weeks ago in Scottsdale having fun in the sun with my girls.👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👙🍹

#WCW - A day late but not my fault it didn’t post bc Instagram was sleeping on us yesterday. #firstworldproblems 😜

Anywho, here are some pics from last weekend. @Nat_venti is getting married so we got drunk... likeee I’m too old for this shit and still recovering drunk.😂👵🏻

Good times in Scottsdale with such an amazing group of women! Bachelorette couldn’t have gone more perfectly. It’s so important in life to be there to celebrate the good times for the ones we love.🙌🏻And nothing makes me happier than seeing my friends happy.☺️ Now begins the countdown until I get to watch her walk down the isle - please don’t trip. I’ll be forced to laugh.😬*Knock on wood.* jkjk - Ahh I’m so excited! I love you so much!💕💍👰🤵

“We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.”

This past week has been an insane sequence of events and not in a good way. Life is testing me in more ways than one, pushing me to my absolute limit, and throwing me all the damn curveballs. I literally sat in my car crying the other day and thought to myself, I can’t take anymore bad news, please not this week. It’s so easy to fall into a depressed state and feel sorry for yourself but that’s the wrong move.🚫Here’s why👇

For starters, it simply doesn’t help or work towards resolving anything. It certainly doesn’t make you feel better either. ((Spoiler alert - pitty parties aren’t that fun anyways...🤷🏼‍♀️))

You can’t stop or change bad things from happening to you but you CAN change your attitude about it! You have to remind yourself that these emotions and bad situations are only temporary. It may be hard to see that at the time but if there’s one thing I’ve learned, they usually end up being a blessing in disguise.🙏🏼

I apologize if you’re my good friend or family and I haven’t told you anything that’s happened, I actually just haven’t really told anyone. I didn’t want to make my problems other peoples problems or be a Debbie downer. I realized I need to remember that I don’t have to face it all alone. That’s where you come in!😋

So here’s a big fu** you to last week and hello to a new Monday! I’m starting this week with a positive mindset. Onwards and upwards!🚀

My milkshake really does bring all the boyz to the yard!🥤✨🐶

Damn right, it’s better than yours.💁🏼‍♀️

Grateful for many things on this Sunday but our friendship is at the very top of that list. Thank you for always being there for me. Love you so much!👯❤️🥰

All the rainy weather this week makes me want to catch a flight back to Tulum ASAP to lay by the pools, beach, swim, hike and repeat!🌴☀️🍹🥾🧭

Also, how come no one in LA knows how to drive when it rains? Serious question.🤔

X-mas in Texas was a huge success!🎅🏻🎄🎁🧸💕But gawd damn, who knew being Santa Claus could be so exhausting!?!? We stayed up until 1:00 AM building a trampoline, Spider-Man tent, train set, etc. How do I go back to the reverse where I just sleep in and then receive all the gifts in the morning?😂

It honestly never gets easier to leave my niece/nephew/family!😭💔I miss them so much already. Thankful for FaceTime!🙌🏻 Here are some photos/videos that I took on this trip and will help me get by until next time. Make sure to watch the very last one for a good laugh.😋

Merry X-mas Eve #fitfam!🎅🏻

“Success is not for the lazy.” Find a friend or family member and get after it today! No better feeling than earning that cheat meal/day(s).😬🤫👟💪🏼

How frickin’ cute is my photo bomber?😂

Off to the snow!🥶 ☃️ 🧤
And by snow, I mean man-made, indoor, at a hotel in Texas and I think it might just be ice sculptures Idk.🤷🏼‍♀️

Here are a couple questions I’ve been thinking about lately...

1.) Why are we so critical of ourselves?
I ask this because I’ve been guilty of it way too much lately. Since the car accident, I haven’t been able to workout for a little over two weeks now. If you know me at all, you know TWO WEEKS is an eternity! It’s killing me and I actually get really unhappy when I can’t workout. I workout because I LOVE to eat. I eat because I usually just had a hard ass workout and earned the right to eat whatever I want (obvi I’m Whole30 so it’s healthy but still)! Everyone knows they go hand and hand but now I can’t do either the same. (Type A personality disorder😂 I need to have my routine!) When I’m forced to rest, that just doesn’t sit well with me. I started to realize during the rest period just how negative and critical I’ve been of my body. I don’t understand why we get like that?🤔

2.) Why do we let strangers see beauty in us before we see it in ourselves?
This pic was taken three days ago in Mexico. Anytime my friend would take pics of me, I would say “omg I look fat” or whatever else dumb insecure comment came to mind. He said not be so mean to myself. I brushed it off. Shortly after, a professional photographer came up to me and showed me this pic he randomly captured. He told me I was the most beautiful woman on the beach and that I look happy. In that moment, I realized that wow people don’t always see us the way that we see ourselves. Why did it take a stranger to make me realize that I needed to change my thoughts and the way that I talk to myself?🤔

Idk why we are like this but here are my five key takeaways. Be confident and be kind to yourself. Talk to yourself as if you would talk to your own children. If you’re unhappy, work to change it instead of complain about it. Setbacks are inevitable, so recognize they will happen and don’t get down on yourself. Lastly, love and accept the body you have because welp, it’s the only one you got. End rant.✌🏼❤️👟💪🏼

TBT - Can we just have free bottomless mimosa bar birthday boozy brunches every Sunday?🙏🏼🍹🍊👯‍♀️💕🎂

PS - I truly believe that the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. So thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with me last Sunday! My family flew in from San Jose and Texas. I had friends who drove up from Newport, Laguna, Hermosa and all over LA (which is basically a road trip with traffic😂). I KNOW y’all live the busiest lives. I don’t think you know how much it meant to me. And a HUGE SHOUT-OUT to @rach_greenfield for planning it ALL. You are my rock.❤️

“Life unfolds as it is meant to, no matter how much you try to control it.”❤️

A lot of people don’t like growing older. That cliche has been around for a really long time. They dwell on what they haven’t accomplished that they always thought they would have by now. (YIKES, I am so guilty of this!😬)
Does a husband, thriving career, house, and kids define my success? No. So why are we so hard on ourselves? Why do we have such high expectations in our lives based off age? How are you choosing to measure success and failure for yourself? Are you setting realistic goals and metrics for the accomplishments or are they based off outdated stereotypes of where we “should be” in life? By what standard are you measuring yourself?
Stop wasting your time focusing of the absence of things. Instead, focus on what you HAVE accomplished, how much you’ve learned, how far you’ve come, and what you want to achieve next. Take a minute to be proud of that! Remember that our goals do not have expiration dates. Stop stressing and thinking you should have it all figured out by now, newsflash - no one has it ALL figured out.
With that being said, I decided to embrace turning 30, take a step back, and just be proud of where I’m at in life. Complacency is not in my vocabulary and I will always keep striving to do more and be more. I truly believe that everything happens exactly when it’s supposed to. Nothing is wasted. Every single moment is preparing you for the next. All of it is growing you for the person you are becoming.
If my life has been this good thus far, then it is only going to keep getting better and better. Cheers to saying goodbye to my 20’s and welcoming my 30’s with open arms!🤗🥂🎂3️⃣0️⃣🎊🥳
