Can we all take a pause for @abbyy_gail_’s INCREDIBLE progress using the #fitandthickapp + a plant-based diet?!😱
Girl, I am so proud of you! You inspire us all.💫
If you’re ready for a change, we’re ready to support you.👭
- “Good evening ladies! I’ve been a member of the group for a couple of months now but this is my first time posting anything because I’ve been a little nervous to do so. I’m a 22 yr old dairy farmer from NY. Two months ago, I decided to go plant based and it was the best decision of my life. I’d gained about 30 lbs in the past year after taking a break from bodybuilding after doing that for 3 years. In the past two months, I lost over 25 lbs through cardio, yoga and the Fit and Thick Workouts. My acne prone skin has almost completely cleared up. And I’m so much happier and excited for life. I’m so appreciative of the love, motivation and inspiration I receive daily from this group and the F+T app! Thank you all for the inspiration and motivation! ❤️💪🏼”

Workin’ with my feet on the ground and my head in the clouds.☁️
Sending you all love for a relaxing weekend!💛

If I could only give you one piece of advice it would be to never give up on yourself.
Never give in and submit to the belief that you are stuck where you are, physically, mentally, or in your current life situation. -
You can grow, but you need to believe that you can grow first.
You can create but you need to believe that you can create first.
You can change if you FIRST believe that you can change.
Those old adages that say, “people are who they are” and “people never change”- yeah I don’t believe that.
People change when they feel worthy and capable of change- and that belief for YOU has to start right now.
Because once you hold onto it, and your mind sees it for what it is- A TRUTH- you will begin to see opportunities and possibilities open up all around.
You see your life is a projection of what you think and believe in your mind.
Once you believe that you are worthy and capable of progress,
then progress you shall.
How can you expect anyone else to believe in you if you do not first believe in yourself? 💫


Alohaaaaa and happy Thursday!
A few weeks ago, I sat down with Jeanette and Alex from @plantedinmiami, and let me tell you, we had a BLAST!
My interview starts at :19 mins!
Podcast available wherever the heck you listen!🙌🏽

Lying here with what are quite possibly, the worst cramps I have ever had.
And I think to myself, “men really have no idea what women go through on a monthly basis.
Before I continue, I want to come right out and say that this is NOT a man-hating feminist post.
I don’t hate men.
On the contrary, I have high hopes and standards for the men in my life thanks to the incredible example set by my father.
What I DO hope this post’s purpose serves is to both inform and inspire you to appreciate the women in your life a little more.
And if nothing else, to maybe prompt you to give her a back rub or two while she’s doubled over in the bed, clutching to the heating pad that’s wrapped around her abdomen each month.🤷🏼‍♀️ Every month, we bleed.
Some more. Some less.
Some dark. Some bright.
Most painfully. Some not.
And as we bleed, we press on.✊🏽
We make it to work and even sometimes, to the gym.
We still manage to cook, and clean, and talk to you about your day.
All while we’re dealing with the steady pain in our bellies or radiating down into the deepest parts of our sciatica.
It has the ability to affect our mood, our digestive system, and our energy levels.
☝🏼But as you age, if I’m being completely honest, you learn to adjust to the ebb and flow of your hormonal balance.
You learn to deal...
When and if you need to take pain meds, what herbs to have on deck, and whether working out helps or hinders you during this period of time- yes, pun intended.
You eventually get to the point where you’re like, “ok, I’m not going to let this prevent me from being productive, making money, and having a life.”
So you learn to work with it.
👉🏼That’s why I think that men who say women can’t run for high political office or sit at the table in top executive positions with the sole argument of us bleeding every month, have never experienced a woman who has decided to learn and work with herself during her period.
All it takes is a gentle reminder that it’s that time of the month and most of us have the ability to put aside hypersensitivity or that initial emotional reaction and think in a more level-headed manner.
Read the rest on my blog!

Remind yourself that you’re a f*cking badass today.

Strawberry banana protein smoothie + Vitamin c boost
• 12-20oz of non-fairy milk (depending on how many scoops of protein you use. Use 12 for 1 scoop and 20 for 2.
• frozen banana (peel, halve, and freeze bananas in a ziplock bag for easy picking! If you’re doing 1 scoop, use 1/2. If 2 scoop, use an entire banana.)
• 3-5 frozen strawberries depending on how many protein scoops
• 1-2 scoop of plant-based protein powder (I’m using @growingnaturals vanilla brown rice)
• 1 tsp @navitasorganics Maca powder (if raw Maca upsets your stomach, get the gelatinized option. It’s more bioavailable!)
• 1/2 tsp @navitasorganics camu powder (camu powder has the most vitamin C content of any plant in the world! A 1tsp serving as over 10x more vitamin C than an orange!!!😄🍊 This tiny 1/2 tsp has over 300% of your daily recommend vitamin C.
I used my @blendtec to whip this up into a delicious, protein-packed snack. If you wanted to add greens to this, you could throw in a handful of spinach or kale- and if you wanted to make it a complete meal, toss in a Tbsp of nut butter as well.😋
Tag me if you try it!

My goals for the next 3 months:
1. To create a habit of consistency by completing 5 #fitandthickapp workouts each week. Working out used to be second nature for me when I was teaching, but now, it’s a struggle to make time and to find the energy. I want to get back to the point where it’s a necessary and habitual part of my day!
2. To complete 5 restorative yoga sessions each week. I have been using #yogawithadriene and also doing some flows on my own which has been helping my stress levels come down... somewhat. Still some serious work to be done in this department.🧘🏼‍♀️
3. To grow my glutes 2 inches. I’ll be incorporating heavy walking lunges and glute bridges, Smith machine work, and LOTS of kickbacks!
We set goals as a community earlier this week on the Facebook group and it’s got me fired up to be working towards them with my #VIBETRIBE 🌴
📣EXCITING NEWS! We put up a poll in the Facebook group to get feedback about what we should call our community. (We’ve needed this for ages, right!?!🤔) the verdict: the VIBE TRIBE🌴!
AAAAANNNDDD, We’ll be opening up the #VIBETRIBE Facebook group up to our entire community next week! Whether you’re on the app or just follow us on social media, you’ll have direct access to me during weekly livestreams, free resources to facilitate your new lifestyle change AND connect with like-minded women from all over the globe by joining the group!
