Motivation and Encouragement Shout out!

You can!


Our children can be THE BIGGEST motivators and encourage us to keep going. At their tender age, it is so genuine and without any agenda to it.

I feel so blessed because my children truly give me motivation and encourage me when I feel like not wanting to do anything. Its like they can sense it and come at the right time to do cheerleading.

My bubz popped up chanting this phrase. Not sure where he got it from, but he was passionate about it and I could tell.

You can do it!!!

To make a long story short…when your children celebrate you, encourage you, motivate you, TAKE THAT ENERGY and RUN WITH IT! Soak it all in use it to better yourself to be the best you can be for them!

Now…think of how this quote could relate to your health and fitness journey…Let it settle in your spirit for a while….



Current Point

So some of you may remember I took myself through a 4 week challenge where I completely eliminated juice because that was my go to beverage for everything And all I was doing was basically drinking sugar day in and day out. I made it a discipline To allow myself the time to purify and change the way I thought about my wants and needs.

Before starting that challenge, it was way deeper than that because I had to understand that that place I was in 2017, where I was battling so many things, was the foundation of my reality and once I recognized that, that’s when my change started to occur. Not physically….but mentally. I want people to understand that the foundation of my reality wasn’t because I knew I was out of shape and needed to get it back together, it was realizing WHY I got out of shape, everything that led me to that point.

Because I allowed myself that time to change my thought process, where I am currently, I have been able to re-introduced juice back in but very sparingly. My palette is so charged toward water or tea, that my urge for juice is no longer. I have been working very hard up to this point and will continue to make some tweaks in no rush. 

I wanted to share with others who may be going through the same thing or just beginning… One of my favorite sayings “In order to get change, you have to make change”. It’s not all about the physical or what exercises you can do to get you right and tight….It’s so much more than that. Those are the kind of principles that I try to instill in my clients and understand through their journey.

Once I conquered my anxiety, depression, frustrations, and unhappiness, which by the way was my foundation of reality, I Was able to conquer and be more confident in other things I took on through my health and fitness journey. As I’ve always said the journey will always continue it’s never an end point. I keep pressing on….

The Foundation is Reality!

Wanted to post this yet again but for another purpose —> to share what I like to call THE FOUNDATION IS REALITY.

Where you start is of upmost importance because you grow from that point on. In the health and fitness realm, I have come in contact with quite a few people who don’t want to know their numbers or where they are at that moment prior to beginning their journey and would rather skip that and try to do something before coming back to that foundation so that they have greater numbers that are pleasing to them. I understand in a sense… However if you set that foundation and except the reality of where you are in the beginning, you put the work towards what you are setting out to do, that foundation that you started out with will be so much more accepting and understood as a story of where you started and where you are at the moment. Your foundation is what sets you up for greater things even if you think your foundation is ugly it is OK because the more you work at it the better it will start looking to you. 

You think the top picture of me I wanted to know where I was at that moment??Hecks no! But deep down inside I knew that I was about to make a change and this was going to be my best opportunity to find out where I was at that time and compare it to where I would be as I went along my journey.

So if you are that person who is just starting in your journey or starting over don’t be afraid to set that foundation (example: a starting scale weight, girth measurements, BEFORE photos, etc etc) and accept it’s reality. Lay the foundation and build from there!

Found a very influential shirt while in the process of moving into our new home- Will be one of my go-to shirts

It speaks volume…

What the shirt says…

“It doesn’t get easier…you get stronger”

So many things I could say about this phrase. So relatable in so many ways.

No matter what you have to deal with and go through….you persevere, and that is what makes you stronger
