MOST RECENT

♦️It’s Take me back Tuesday circa 2014/2015 when I was still able to lift weights, eat clean to build muscle, shed body fat, enjoying an active lifestyle, by training several days a week, seeing results, feeling great, and above all feeling MYSELF. ♦️This was BEFORE my hormones decided to wreak havoc and when everything from there went downhill from a health and wellness perspective. (I gained 17lbs and about 10% body fat in a year and a half without changing my healthy habits) In addition to the extra fat I acquired a whole slew of menopausal symptoms, ranging from insomnia, forgetfulness, depression, and many more. ♦️It has been a very humbling and eye-opening experience to say the least, which I don’t wish on anyone and which I will be sharing on my blog in the next few weeks. ♦️I’m most GRATEFUL today to be back to being my old self, to be feeling great again with tons of energy, to be able to sleep at night again, to have my strength back and for my body to be back to where it was 2 years ago, knock on wood. I was totally blindsided (my mother never went through this), only a few of my friends had started going through the process or rarely did I hear about it and I never saw this coming, nor did I have any clue as to what to expect. ♦️It taught me to LISTEN to my body more closely, and to NEVER ever take my health for granted again, to take good care of my mind, my body and soul. I gained RESPECT for every woman I came in contact with and who had a story or a journey of her own to share. (And those too I will be sharing in the near future)...stay tuned, because it is too important not to share as there are too many women still today suffering silently. ♦️Always listen to what your body is telling you my Lovelies, at any age listen well, be aware of all your options and take good care of YOU. More soon~ #listentoyourbody

Happy Monday my Lovelies. Make it count~

I AM stronger than my excuses!
.
Business trip and my hotel has no gym. Luckily I can take my fitness programs with me and have a whole list of equipment free killer workouts. I even brought my loops for some extra resistance.
.
I could have easily used this trip as an excuse to take an extra rest day, but that’s not me anymore. I’m driven, I’m worthy, I’m powerful, and I feel GOOD inside and out. Why quit now?
.
Happy Monday from Arkansas!

After my vacation....
After the family leaves ....
After the weekend .....
After this party...

Stop after-ing and next-ing yourself. Pretty soon another year will have come and gone and you will be no closer to achieving your health and fitness goals.

My plan for after Thanksgiving has officially ARRIVED!
.
It’s okay to indulge on occasion. It’s NOT okay to let that turn into a week, and then a month, and then a year.
.
Failure to prepare is preparing to fail. This is my secret to holiday success. Is anyone else doing a cleanse after the holidays? 🙌🏻

Happy Friday my Lovelies~ Taking the time today to reflect on this past week, my accomplishments, the things that I didn’t get to or how I could have, should have, would have done things differently but all in all satisfied with my week. How about you? Remember in our busy lives to take a moment and to go within - it’s part of y(our) wellness journey - and don’t beat yourselves up if you didn’t get to do everything on your list, there’s always another day to do so. #gowithin #takethetime #reflect

#tbt Take me back to my favorite roof top view~ #wanderlust

I DID NOT want to do that today! I hit snooze, I told myself it was my rest day on my Liift4 program, I hit snooze again..... but in the end I got up, I showed up, and I stayed consistent.... because that’s what bring change and success! Sometime we have to do what we don’t want to do in order to be better! And on those days I do 2 scoops of energize 🙌🏻🙌🏻🔥👊🏻 Happy Wednesday!

Forgot to post that sweaty selfie. Week:3/Day:2 back & biceps ✅ Liift4 is becoming one of my favorites! A little puffy faced from this period but happy my workouts in and now I can just take care of my kid and go on with my day. No excuse!
Since my kid is a little under the weather I’m sitting here drinking coffee and watching the fog lift instead of heading out the door for school and work. I love this cabin and these woods. So peaceful and I’m thankful for the times I actually get to sit still and take it all in. Happy Tuesday!

Remember: it’s okay to be a beginner. It’s okay to start over. It’s okay to modify. It’s okay to feel frustration.
.
I’ve been there and can completely relate. The very best advice that I can offer is, to set yourself short term, not long term, goals. Long term goals can feel so far and unattainable when you’re just starting out.
.
And as always....progress, not perfection ❤️ if you’re lacking a support system, send em a message and we’ll do this together!

One Day or Day One.☝️
.
I used to say, “One day”, every day.
.
When I saw someone taking an amazing vacation...one day.
.
When I saw someone loving their job...one day.
.
I When I saw someone eliminating debt...one day.
.
When I saw someone working on their health and fitness...one day.
.
Then one day I started DAY ONE!
.
I've had A LOT of day one's and it doesn't get easier, but I have gotten stronger. There will be road blocks, but the hardest part is just starting. If you've done that much, you're WINNING!
.
If you believe that you’re on DAY ONE with me, "TRUST & BELIEVE" in the process and KEEP going ! 👊🏻

I was in your shoes one year ago.
.
~The holidays were wonderful
~ I ate too much
~That bloated feeling was my new normal
~My clothes didn’t fit me right
~I felt overwhelmed with where to start
~I knew change wasn’t going to happen fast…. so that made me drag my feet.
.
But…. one thing was true. I was SERIOUSLY tired of feeling sluggish, bloated, self-conscious, and lazy. I knew it was time. I needed to do a workout that was going to give me RESULTS and I needed to do it at home - on my clock.
.
I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a coach looking for women to join her Challenge Group - and I can HONESTLY say that was the best decision I have ever made. Instead of quitting (like I had done 10 times before), I completed the full program! And then another, and another. One year later and I haven’t missed a workout!
.
I lost all of my extra weight, leaned out my core & lower body, learned how to eat to fuel my body, and most importantly I felt SO PROUD of myself for DOING SOMETHING about the way I felt - for not being a QUITTER anymore & not staying dissatisfied.
.
These Challenge Groups that I offer are so special to me because I KNOW there could be someone who needs what I needed in there. This really could be YOUR fresh start - on your terms!
.
I’m opening up my group to anyone with a purpose BECAUSE I KNOW if you’re anything like I was, you are REALLY READY to make some changes. If you think this may be good for you, but you have some questions first, please reach out & message me!
.
Let's get HEALTHY and on track BEFORE 2019!

Purpose is an incredible alarm clock⏰!
.
Most of us live life by reacting to whats happening to us. I sometimes fall into this trap too. If you want to live a more fulfilling life. If you want things to be different, it’s time to start living a purposeful life. Figure out what you’re PASSIONATE about and really just go for it!

💪
Allow yourself to be a beginner and get back to the basics!
💪
Allow yourself to learn from mistakes.
💪
Allow your mind to also CHALLENGE you in order to change & grow.
💪
Allow yourself a treat!
💪
Don’t think you can do one more rep? Do 3!
💪
Don’t think healthy eating will fill you up? Go ahead... eat every morsel of food you’re allowed in a day on your plan. See how you feel.
💪
Don’t think you can get enough sleep? Challenge yourself to turn OFF the tv, put the phone away, and close your eyes earlier!
💪
We’re capable of SO MUCH MORE than we give ourselves credit for. It’s our minds that we have to work on in order to take on new challenges. But most of all, allow yourself the opportunity to do this too!

I had to work from the inside out to see any real change. It’s something I fought for so long. .
When I finally surrendered to that fact, and got to work on my MINDSET, everything SHIFTED!
.
Until you’re happy with who you are, you will never be happy with what you have.
.
Happy Saturday!

FIT is a feeling, NOT a size.
👉
I believe that....
👉
If you can sweat you should.
👉
That great work takes HARD work.
👉
That eating clean and being active can be a cure.
👉
That too many people give up right before that breakthrough.
👉
That happiness starts with being content with what you have and not focusing on what you lack.

People used to tell me that once you have cellulite, you’re stuck with it. I’ve learned that they were WRONG! This took me less than a year and my body has completely transformed.
.
It wasn’t a quick fix. It wasn’t surgery or food restrictions. I didn’t even have to leave my home!
.
I’m looking for two more women to join me on my journey. Who’s in? 🙋🏼‍♀️
