Lean and fit is great. But now I want to be lean and RIPPED! I've always wanted to be in extreme shape but I never followed a precise plan to get there. Yesterday, I started a 90 day journey with a new workout program and meal plan. I want to prove to myself that I'm capable of whatever I set my mind to. So I'm challenging myself to be focused enough to get the body I've always wanted. The next couple months I'm going to get bigger and then I'm going to shred! Build, bulk, be
GUESS WHAT?! You, beautiful souls, you!! 😍 TODAY is the DAY! 💕👶🏼💕Baby Brave is TWELVE WEEKS!! And this mama is feeling GOOOOOD! 🙋🏼 The morning sickness has LEFT THE BUILDING!! The endorphins I got from working out and my superfoods shake first thing in the morning HELPED with that during the early weeks! (I never once actually threw up!!) And sure enough, at 9.5 weeks, it completely went away! 🙏🏼😍🙌🏼 #praisejesus #forserious 💃🏻 Got my ENERGY back, 110%!!! 💪🏼 Ba
Be picky about how you spend your time... Be damn picky. As much as so many of us like to think that CIRCUMSTANCES determine the kind of life we lead. That's entirely untrue. 😬 REAL-TALK: it's not only UNTRUE, it's an EXCUSE. An EXCUSE to keep living INSIDE your comfort zone. This is YOUR life. You decide what sort of life you're going to lead. So, get a move on & figure out your priorities & then start designing a life around them. ✨ 🙏🏼 time at our favorite church. Check.
I don't know what I did to deserve a love like this. But, I must be doing something right... 💋 Last night... I looked at Jay. Serious as a heart attack & said, "It's time." He knew just what I was talking about. When I'm ALREADY doing everything I can to be the best mom, the best person, the best health coach I can be... And my days are CRAMMED with all the good stuff & a whole lot of hard work. But, I go to this man & tell him, three months pregnant with our baby... That I'
I haven't shared a recipe on the blog in QUITE a while... Even though we share TONS in our challenge groups weekly!! But, you guys... THIS ONE was killer so I HAD to share it with the WORLD!! SEVEN INGREDIENTS & tastes DELICIOUS! Plus, ALL ingredients are on our meal plan! #WINNING Ingredients 2 Sweet Potatoes, peeled & cubed 1 Clove of Garlic, chopped 1 Red Onion, chopped 2 Cups baby Spinach 1 Cup Coconut Milk (unsweetened, unflavored) 6 Eggs, beaten Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup
Lets start here: The worry, the anxiety, the single mom marathon, the broken heart that I swore would never heal, the scraping money together, the lack of hope for a future, the way it was impossible for me to dream... I remember the days I prayed for what I have now. Oh, I REMEMBER the days. 😣 It took me a while to get my feet under me, but once I did, I realized I had a choice. I could lay back down... Which would have been easier because, dang it, I was TIRED! OR, I could
How did Jay & I meet? Well, for a while I tried to just say, "Through a mutual friend..." so I didn't have to tell the WHOLE story. Especially if someone was asking in a casual setting. But, glossing over Nick's part of our story never ACTUALLY worked. I would ALWAYS correct myself, despite the fact that this story can't really be condensed that much & despite the fact that some people might not want to hear about my losing my husband at a wedding rehearsal. #sorrynotsorry I
I have to say, working your own business from wherever you are has SO MANY DANG PERKS! 😄 From planning EVERYTHING this month around my upcoming 30th birthday 🎂, to LIVING in my sweatpants when I wanna (& then getting dressed up when I like) 👗, to Jay & I being ABLE to help my mom move all day today 🚚 .... It's a pretty LEGIT gig we got going on over here. And it's so dang FUN! 🤗 Kicking off next month's health & fitness accountability group tonight & couldn't be more PUM
