Both soft and fierce can coexist and still be powerful 🖤

I love that quote because I feel some women think they need to be savage or heartless to be powerful or stand their ground and that is just not the case! There is power in being gentle and warm even when you are hurt or in defense mode.

Off to San Francisco to see miss @rachelbwlng for a few days and then LA to see @sierrasachet 😍 Getting out of Columbus and my apartment is MUCH NEEDED RIGHT NOW. You lovely humans are making my LIFE right now with all of your encouragement and support. It is making this transitional time a lot easier on my heart as heavy as it is right now. Seriously I can’t thank you all enough!!

Thanks for being the best hype woman @gabbyy.marino and for slaying my hair last night @audrey_lane7 !!

For almost 3 years I was used as a mirror of a man’s own self hatred and insecurity. Blamed for his wrong doings. Yelled at for not always being perfect. Shoved deeper into a hole when I couldn’t dig myself out of a mental rut quick enough. Constantly accused of cheating or being disloyal. Intensely manipulated to where I believed all the things this person tried to convince me.. but this person wasn’t trying to show me who I really was, they were showing me an outward representation of how they felt about themselves and I was in the line of fire.
-
For a long time I fell into this trap. I would get blamed and I would reflect inward. Was I really to blame for everything? Was I really untrustworthy? Did my mental health really define who I was and tear everyone else around me down? Did I really cause the violence, yelling, and anger? I lived with these things for so long it became my norm and when others would see, I didn’t understand their shock. I made excuses for this person- the same ones he gave me and I believed.
-
A person incapable of taking fault... a person who can’t look at themselves first instead of always having a finger to point.. that is a very very dangerous kind of person. Especially dangerous for a person like me who wants to heal others and who DOES always look inward first before placing blame.
-
A year ago I was freed from that terror. I promised myself I would NEVER get used as a mirror again. That I would always be honest and take fault when necessary, but never to console someone’s insecurity and lack of ability to swallow their own actions.
-
It’s a weird topic to discuss because people always say “well if you’re talking about it are you even over that person?” To which I answer that of course I am, but those years of my life profoundly shaped me into who I am today.
-
Remember that misery loves company and that hurt people hurt people. Another’s actions are more often than not a reflection on THEM and not you. It’s up to you to have the surety in yourself and to stand firm in your ground. 🖤

**Sorry for all the deep shit recently guys I’m just having really good dialogue and clarity with myself recently and love to write and share 🤗

Has the discomfort in your body ever held you back from truly enjoying an experience and being able to soak it in? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Yeah, I’ve been there too. On the beach, at the pool, the summer can really bring these demons out to play.

Let me help you build habits in your life so you can not only earn a body that you’re proud of, but a mindset that will allow you to actually live your life outside of a body prison.

When I say I offer COACHING, I mean I offer COACHING. No copy and paste responses. No always telling you you’re doing great. No cookie cutter crap for macros. I don’t just guide you, I teach you WHY. I take a limited amount of girls so they get my full attention and care. Check out the Summer Shred highlights for some of the awesome moments I’ve had with these girls so far 💛

Yeah, I’d say life is pretty alright. It’s easy to get caught up in all the stresses and not-so-goods when life throws you some curveballs. These are actually the moments I realize all the things I’ve been taking for granted though.
-
You can either sit and focus on all the bad, or push that to the side and amplify all the good. Both scenarios you have the same BS going on, yet one option leaves you feeling blissful and excited to be alive and the other leaves you consumed and spiraling into a hole.
-
One relationship goes south? Okay, but what about all the other amazing relationships in your life? Dwell on the one or celebrate the many.
Stressed out about work? Okay, but what about the other 6-8 hours of the day that you’re not sleeping or working? Are you gonna dwell on your stress and waste those hours too or enjoy those other living hours?
...
If you lost $20 would you throw out the other $20 in your pocket? Hell no!

Life can be a big ol’ Agnes bitch sometimes.. but a skill that will always aid you is learning appreciation. I’m not just talking about appreciation when things are good and go your way either. That is way too easy. I’m talking appreciation when you feel like the world is against you. Shit just ISN’T going to go your way all the time.. actually most of the time it won’t. So stop letting that create roadblocks! Life is all about learning ways to get through it with less hiccups, so let the bad blossom the good!

July 16th start date of Shred 2.0 enrollment open until this Friday 7/13 at midnight 🌴🙌🏼 **You did not have to complete Summer Shred to participate. All details on my site (link in ze bio)! Limited spots available.

To all my humans with big dreams:
don’t you DARE lose sight of your vision. Whatever it is that is equally terrifying, yet sets your heart on fire- keep your sights on that. You’re going to fuck up A LOT and hit a ton of roadblocks. Don’t view those moments as failures, view them as lessons. There’s times momentum will feel fast and you don’t know how you’ll keep up, then times where you feel 1000 miles away from your goal. Just. Keep. Giving. Your. All. Focus on yourself. Focus on what is in your control. You owe it to yourself to make your vision your reality. In the end, it’s not always about making your dream your real, it’s about what it took to get there and the triumph of making it happen. Take the leap of faith and BET ON YOURSELF.

July is gonna be my set up for my take back in August 👊🏼
-
Oh, how quickly things can change. I’m trying to process through and wrap my mind around so many things right now.. but what I can tell you for sure is that I’m going to spend this month with my head down working and planning. I planned a trip to haul my ass to the West Coast to remind myself why I dream big and work as hard as I do. There are a lot of things people can take from you- but your dreams are not one of them unless you let them.
-
Come August I’m going to take back my health, take back my body, take back my heart, my goals and dreams as an individual and although I’ve gotta do some scary ass shit to get there, I’m ready. Certain circumstances are what they are and if I’m gonna get through them, I just gotta face them head on. I’m determined to make my situation better for myself, learn from my mistakes, and move the fck onnn. Can I get a HELLLL YEAH SARRY?!?

You can’t pour from an empty cup 🍷 -
So often we try to continuously pour ourselves into other people, without stopping to replenish our own tanks. What feels like a selfish act is actually the most selfless in this case- quite simply, take care of yourself first.
-
I struggle with this balance often. A large part of my fulfillment IS giving to others, so where do we draw the line?
-
You know that feeling, that feeling of starting to get spread thin. You have less patience and focus. You’re stressed from things that shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Yup, your cup is getting empty. In these moments instead of stopping and saying, “Okay, I need to take a deep breath and recharge” we usually try to grit it out and run on fumes instead.
-
Maybe because we believe this is what we should be doing or maybe because we don’t entirely know what it is that is going to refill those cups and recharge us. Something I have learned is as extroverted as I am I recharge alone. With a book, on a run, during yoga, reading articles, Netflix and chill. If I want to recharge I need to be alone.
-
Other things I also need to refill my cups are deep human connection, being around other motivated people/ dreamers, and outright stupid goofiness. If I don’t get these things regularly I get deeply lonely, unmotivated, and depressed.
-
Sometimes I need alone time, other times I need humans. Depending on what I need, both things fill my cups.
-
Learn yourself and what you need and then LISTEN when your body is telling you you need something. It feels damn good to pour yourself into others, but only if these things/ people pour into you too and only if you fill your cups first ☝🏼
