#tbt to back when I had straight hair and I got to torment Panda everyday. I get to see this grumpy orange fluffball this weekend!!! He’s still back in Charlotte, staying with my sister until I go back to Charlotte in December. I’m not even joking, he’s a minor celebrity among the 3rd graders here in Mitchell County! Kids run up to me in the school hallways asking about Panda by name. #kidsdontforgetanything#whoisthatgirl#idontrecognizemyself#lifeaftercancer#mainecoonmix
We are so proud of Anise who has learned new dive after new dive in just two months. She has changed 5/6 of her dives on 3m...and working to upgrade even more, while also learning several new dives on 1m. Keep up the good work @aniseeem !
"A year ago everything was different. Now that I look back, I realize a year can do a lot to a person" I remember taking the pic on the right like it was yesterday. I remember how sad I was. I remember making promises to myself that I didn't keep. I've been slacking on my weight loss posts and I don't feel bad about it! I've been out living and enjoying my life that I missed out on for many years! Those are the moments I want to post about! Those are the moments I want to look back on and see how happy I was! I am still a few months out from my surgiversary but if I stopped all weight loss today I would be one ecstatic bitch! I work my ass off and have a lot more working to do! I'm not done and I don't know if I will ever be done! I have enjoyed this journey so very much and as you can tell by the pics this journey has treated me kindly! #happyweighinwednesday#wls#vsg#mexico#joya#whoisthatgirl
3 years. 3 years ago I finished chemo and was told I was in “remission”. It’s a weird feeling. Lately I feel like it never happened at all – it was just all a bad dream. Life has stabilized and couldn’t be better. But then I see photos, the bleo burns or my port scar and I know it all happened. I’ve said before, I would never change it – cancer has been the biggest blessing and brought the most amazing people into my life. I am so grateful for all that it has taught me – about myself and others. I remember a month into starting treatment – Paco (my oncologists nickname) told me that had I waited any longer to start treatment I probably would’ve been dead – he doesn’t play around. That really resonated with me – that I was given another chance to be the best version of myself. To be the best daughter, friend and girlfriend to people who love me unconditionally. And I have my moments of complete ridiculousness but I really try to live with intention. 3 years ago I never thought I’d be where I am today... I never thought I’d get out of my own way. I didn’t know I could be this content and happy. But here I am ♥️ •
#SelfieSaturday with a blast from the past in my high school bedroom with red walls and gold symbols and Moroccan decorations. From a time when New Found Glory was king and my favorite movie was "Chicago" and I spent too much time finding Dashboard Confessional lyrics for my AIM info to subtly flirt with @olsenventures. (And digital cameras were still obscenely big) #whoisthatgirl#handsdown
CHEESY SELFIE PIC*** I hardly ever wear makeup... Except maybe to church... And when I have plenty of pimples to hide 😉 But @kayrepts and I got to splurge today thanks to @rhondalbingham ❤❤ #whoisthatgirl#carselfie
These pics are 10-12-14 & 10-12-17. I don’t talk about it on social media but three and a half years ago the life as I knew it came crashing down. I learned secrets that were devastating to me and my way of thinking. I spent months trying to figure out the next steps, trying to figure out how to move forward. I remember the day on the left. I was not feeling well, depressed and had just left the Dr. I didn’t like what I saw when I stepped in the scale and knew that change needed to be made.
This has not been an easy journey for me. I have struggled more than I would like to admit but I have done it with God’s help, with those that love me the most encouraging me on (you all know who you are) by changing the way I eat, by working out, by living one day at a time. Only God knows what the future holds, here’s to whatever that looks like. #changeisgood#healthy#healing#godisgoodallthetime#overcomingobstacles#lifechanges#whoisthatgirl#keepitreal
Today’s look was WAY out of my comfort zone. First my hair is actually down 😮 shocker I know lol. And one of my biggest fears which is silly is red lipstick. Seriously. Even though a friend used to tell me rock the red I rarely did.
Today I was challenged to do something out of my comfort zone. So... I did a live video. Said here goes nothing and used our Sizzling splash liquid lipstick. 😬
You know what happened? I felt pretty good about myself. Still not 💯% sold on red but I did it. I pushed myself outside the box. So go do something that challenges you. It doesn’t matter how big or small it is... just that you DO IT!
Left - totally clueless and unhealthy relationship with food and exercise. Went from one fad to the next and was extremely uncomfortable in my own skin.
Right- 4 years into CrossFit...strong as sh*t and completely happy with what my body is able to do. Food is considered fuel and pants sizes are half of what they were in left picture yet 15 pounds heavier 😳. I avoided @crossfit for years because of all the negative media surrounding it when it first became a "fad"...that was stupid. I've never looked back since starting.
Are you looking for that thing to change your life? That thing that makes you excited to work out everyday and gives you the confidence and strength to take on anything thrown at you in life?? Find a CrossFit box near you, you won't regret it.
