Why do I run?
Well other than because it is free anger management, a great workout, is so incredible freeing, and is so much fun (yes fun). I run for a little girl who motivates me more than I can put into words.
There is a wonderful group (iRun4 Michael) that pairs athletes with someone with disabilities so that they both can share in the experiences of each other.
I was blessed with a little girl about the same age as my daughter. She is a wonderful little girl, a sweetheart, and loves many of the same shows my daughter loves. I have loved watching her smile and grow no matter how difficult things get for her, which in turns pushes me to push my limits and work through them no matter how tough they get.
While I know I physically ran these, my sweet running buddy has been there for me for the last year and a half, and shared in my journey and successes in a way I cannot describe. These medals and moments are just as much mine as they are hers. What's better is she has a medal from many of these as well to truly share in the memory with me!
Why do I share this with you?
Because sometimes your own will power is not enough (which is why I missed all of 2015, and had a half a** excuse for it). Sometimes you do need a push and a little extra to keep going. My sweet run buddy is that for me. I encourage you all to find something or someone who will motivate you to keep going when times are rough.

Almost one year ago a took a leap of faith and jumped into something crazy that I knew nothing about. I was so scared but I was SO broke I knew I had to do SOMETHING. I was back in school and I needed extra income for my family💜 I invested 99$ into myself, said a few prayers, and got to work. One year later I've paid off thousands in debt. I've received over 5k in bonuses, and last month I DOUBLED my income. How? There's no secret, I learned to work from my phone using social media. It's been such a blessing for me. If you're struggling and maybe even a little skeptical, send me a PM and let's chat. What have you got to loose?
Get it. Get it. Get it.
Got my fast MMA workout in because I have very little time this morning...
I felt like I kicked a little a$$ with Joel and Jericho like I did when I saw then at a live" event.
Bobbing and weaving... Bob and weave! 😎
Have an awesome Friday!
Happy Flex Friday! So apparently no one works out early in this hotel cause the lights were completely off in the gym 😜 oh well that just means I can blast my music and do my workouts in peace... plus it’s cold!! Time to warm up this place 💪🏼 #nodaysoff
The last week has really sucked for me. Nothing tragic happened but wow I was definitely in need of a mental health day. So after classes that’s exactly what I did. I picked up my child from daycare early and we had a very lazy afternoon. I also decided to be a bit domestic and made homemade #keto soup. The family loved ❤️ it! So good and so easy to make!
I've said this many times but social media can be surprisingly social.
The picture on top are a few of the "crazies" that I have been so blessed to do Disney (and a few other) runs with! These ladies and gents have always been so welcoming and kind to everyone. My normal roommate (unfortunately not pictured here) who travels to the runs with me, is from this group. We all love to run, and have a special love for Disney (and runDisney). The picture at the bottom are some of the wonderful ladies that are apart of my wonderful coaching team. We all are dominating our health journeys (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually), while helping others to do the same.
All of us in both pictures come from different places. We all have different jobs, home lives, and interests.
Would you believe we all met online?? Yes, I flew to Michigan and New Orleans to meet perfect strangers. Yes, I went to Orlando and Anaheim with people who I met through a FB group. Crazy thing is I didn't even think twice about it at all.
I am so grateful for each and every one of them, including those not pictured. I could not ask for a better set of friends. We all encourage each other to be the best version of ourselves possible. And that is the best kind of friend there is.
When I started this online coaching thing, I didn't overthink things, I just simply started because I knew that to be successful I had to ✨start somewhere✨, and sitting around, overthinking everything wasn't going to get me anywhere. Best decision I've ever made! 🙌🏼 START NOW. Figure it out LATER. Link in bio if you want some info on how to make fitness your business😘

Happy Thursday! Starting a little later than I wanted to because I guess the puppies needed a little more attention than usual. But need to get my workout in this morning since I’m driving about 3 hours for a full day conference. Cant leave it for this evening since I may be burned out after sitting down for close to 12 hours! On schedule: Joel Freeman’s Beachbody on Demand 8 x 8 with the bar and Core de Force, Core on the Floor. Time to get that gym hair 😜 #noexcuses
It's been a minute since I could write fluently
Put my thoughts on paper and let the emotions flow through me
For a mintue now depression has kept me silent
Everytime I start speaking it feels like I'm starting up a riot
So I write about motherhood and being a wife
The finer things that are happening right now in my life
While I'm loving on my husband and my kids day and night
I'm still healing from the trauma that kept holding me down tight
For 11years I carried a guilt that wasn't even mine
My own father had raped me and I refused to loose my mind
I call him my father because it's the only figure I had ever known
Before I met my husband, the image of man was distorted
Every time I talk about it some friends hit up my phone
Telling me not to let get to personal with the world
But that's selfish in a way
When I'm a selfless woman
I want these young girls to know they are not alone
Being open doesn't take me off my throne
Mama told me to press charges but my word is my sword
I rather they watch me grow as they stay stagnent
Pretending to be happy with the devil on they back
There is no real love in that
The pain ain't aching I ain't tripping anymore
Don't be confused by my silnce I'm just stirring up the pot
The best revenge is my strength
Ain't no breaking me down
A real Queen never looses her crown.
I aspire to inspire in more ways than one
The battle has just begun
The war is never ending
With the men who manipulate
The same ones who claim they don't hate us
All women of color
The victims, they always want to blame us
But I'll be the voice, the voice that speaks against it all.
Here I am
Over 2 years ago I made the big decision to go back to school to better myself and hoping for a better future for my growing family. I say it was a very big decision because it meant more debt, MANY hours of studying, ALOT of time management since at the time I already had my two older boys plus Julian who was only a couple of months old; ,my husband was working the third shift at the time which meant he was sleeping most of the afternoon I was there, so I was on my own with the boys in the afternoons. Though, I do give him credit for helping me as much as he could
These 2 years have been legit a rollercoaster, alot of crying, frustration, MANY sleepless nights doing homework until 3 am and going to “sleep” for only a couple of hours before my alarm went off at 6 am to get up and go to work. Many times I was asked how I did it? Honestly, I didn’t even know how I did it on daily basis. As mentioned, I work full-time, three boys, cleaning, sports, homework, cooking, time with my boys, and the many other duties that come with being a mom. I am sure many can relate. My goal has always been to provide a good and healthy life for my family that is my MAIN priority, my boys deserve to have an unforgettable childhood and if that means me staying up all night doing homework to better my education to have a better job and be able to have a good life with our boys than thats what I will do. There is nothing wrong with wanting more in life, its a natural thing in every human being. This momma right here isn’t stopping until she is ABSOLUTELY proud of herself! I know I did everything backwards in my life, I was a teen mom, I had my other boys really young and got married to the love of my life very young too and just now I am working on my degree. BUT I wouldn’t have it any other way! Thanks to all the challenges I have gone through In life, I am the women I am now. Life hasn’t been easy but I am not just going to stand around and let it push me around. If I fall, I get up and will get up as many times as I need to, to continue with this crazy thing called life! In the meantime, I will continue doing what I am doing and enjoy every single bit of my life and family 💝
Day 15. I'm thankful for hair driers. I have hit a point in life that the idea of going out and having my hair freeze doesn't sound fun. So I'm going to see if I can avoid that. I might just be buying a lot of dry shampoo we will see. Lol
Hiiii! I’m here 😊 Tomorrow is my last clinical of the semesterrrr!!! 🙌🏻 I am so very excited I have almost made it through semester 1! 4 more to go!! Clinical has been the best part of nursing school so far, on top of making some great friends. I didn’t realize how “real” it gets so fast. From giving my first injection with a racing heart, to passing meds and triple checking, to rock, paper, scissoring who gets to assist an enema 😂, patients passing away, codes and so much more.... it’s all part of life. I laugh and I cry but I love it so far. I meet happy nurses and I meet grumpy nurses and ya just gotta roll with the punches. I seriously vow with all my heart to always smile and be the approachable, happy and helpful student/nurse on the floor. I hope and pray to keep this mindset as I make my way forward ♥️ My dad would be so proud! ☺️☺️☺️ .
