I'm calling for you to take action today. I don't want you to simply read this, I want you to read it and share it because Lord knows we need a little more love in our world today. ... Today our social media feeds are filled with thoughts, prayers, opinions, and stories from the devastating school shooting in Florida. Normally, I don’t follow trend and post about tragedies after they take place. I watch. I listen. I feel. But for some reason making a social media post simply

Before we can ever change our bodies (you don’t need to change by the way), we have to love the body we have now. If you don’t love your "before", you’ll never love your "after". Guess what? It’s going to be hard. Loving yourself, it’s a diffi
I did a lot of thinking on the airplane yesterday, and these are some of those deep thoughts. Enjoy.
Dear women of the world,
Let’s talk. There are a few things I need you to know about this photo. While I think it’s super cool that I have photos like this, and NEVER in my life did I think that I’d be capable of looking like this, this is not my every day reality. I can’t speak for other “fitness people” who have professional photos, but I can tell you that getting in th

I have NEVER in my life looked like I did then. As I was working out with my sports bra and spandex and as I turned to look in the mirror I said out loud, "Ew, I'm fat." I just said it. It just came out. Those disgusting words just rolled so naturally off the tip of my tongue. As soon as they did,
Am I the only person that can look at pictures from years ago and remember exactly how I felt about my body in that moment of time? I do this with so many pictures.

And, no, I'm not talking about when you are sleeping. I'm talking about creating BIG DREAMS and PLANS for your life. When was the last time that you let yourself do that?

"There is nothing as powerful as a change in mind... if you don't change your mind the same experience will perpetuate itself over and over again because everything outwardly changed, but nothing inwardly changed." - Unknown This video explains the mental transformation that I've experienced the past year with my fitness journey.
