Guys I know I’ve been slacking hardcore in sharing my fitness lately.. mainly because I’ve been in a funk. Feeling worn out, burnt out and stressed out. Realistically this is the worst time to put myself on the back burner.. but we are all human. I am human. It’s not always easy to make time to do the things you know should be done.
But I got this shirt in the mail today for FREE. For being one of the first people to ever make the shift 💪🏻. I stuck to the program and I got results, not only physically but mentally as well. So regardless of my funk, I am SO extremely proud of myself for how far I’ve come on my fitness journey.
I fall off the wagon every now and then, the difference between old me and the me now? I get back on the grind as soon as I connect back to WHY I started all of this. I will NEVER go back to the girl I hated, because I’ve worked WAY too hard to love myself. No more unhealthy relationships with food, torturing negative thoughts of myself, and feeling unworthy. I am so SO done and constantly working on finding and maintaining that inner peace. 🙏🏻.
Negative thoughts and cycles are very hard to break. But consistency is key. Just keep going. Keep trying. Keep on loving. 😘.
I AM strong.
I AM confident.
I AM a leader.
I AM empowered, loved and inspired.
I AM imperfect.
I AM capable, willing and worthy.
And for that I will never give up.
Never said it was easy, but being able to look in the mirror and be proud of yourself is something no one else can give you but yourself. .
My journey started with fitness.. the decision to start taking care of ME and I will continue to work on myself every day here on out. 🖤
I am no different than you. If you’re stuck, it’s not forever unless you choose not to change. You choose your happy. Choose your hard. Choose based as if your life depended on it. 😘 xo

I tactfully left out that "ran into" was more like me screaming "KATYA!!!!!" As I exited a taxi. Still giddy and floating off this exchange! @katya_zamo gave off such a beautiful, palpable HAPPY and WARM energy. Gonna have to pray for a do-over so I can get my selfie!!! #YOUCANANDYOUWILL

Vanessa Williams was the first African-American woman to win the Miss American Pageant in 1983. Toward the end of her reign in 1984, she became part of one of the biggest scandals of the time due to the publication of some unauthorized nude photographs that were published in Penthouse. After much pressure from the Miss America Organization she resigned. ⠀
Instead of fading away into memory, Vanessa came back four years later with her album, 'The Right Stuff', and a Top 10 Hit on the Billboard 100 Charts! She went on to have a fantastic career in music, TV, film and theater and became one of the best comeback stories in pop culture!
And in 2015 Vanessa returned to the Miss America Pageant as a head judge and received an apology from the CEO for how she was treated during the scandal in 1984.⠀
If life knocks you down, find the strength to get up and start over. You can do it!⠀

I went to bed last night with my plan made out for today and actually for the week!! Last night however, I did NOT sleep well at all. Ever have those nights where you just toss and turn and cannot get your brain to shut down?! 🙋🏻 So, even though I had a rough night, I was NOT going to let derail my plan for this morning. Downed my magic Energize and kicked butt on the new program I’m following this week, so I can better help my Thriller Week Challengers next week.
Still have 3 spots left if you’d like to try a 7 day basic week of workouts, meal plans, 7 nutritious superfood shakes and a private accountability group with me and the other amazing women who have signed up.
But don’t wait, have to get that order in ASAP!
I was determined to catch up so I did😊
Everyday I tell myself "Today you can and YOU WILL" 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 Some days are hard yes, some days are very painful (not just with the challenge but with other things too) but I take breaks, I pace myself, I rest when I need to, then I get right back to it and refuse to let any of it stop me, no matter how long it takes I will get there👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾 So Day 14 and 15 of the challenge were done yesterday (morning and night) ✅
Day 16 done this morning✅
Morning post workout shake and goodies ✅
Ticking off the To Do list ✅
Looking forward to rest of the day ✅😊😍 #youcanandyouwill#staydetermined#youcandothis#ownitoctober#gettonedoctober#believeinyourself#becauseyoureworthit#healthbabesproject
Ladies and Gentlemen every abusive relationship in the beginning has signs. Whether its controlling or verbal abuse. It's up to us to not only pay attention to the signs but to also act on them. Also if you are in an abusive relationship please SPEAK. You don't have to go through what I went through. I was blessed to make it out. Not everyone is blessed to make it out. What made me reach my breaking point was not the thought of me losing my life
because, I had got to a point where I no longer cared about dying, However it was selfish on my behalf because I had little ones needed me more than anything. So the thought of my children
growing up without a mother. The thought of me to not be able to teach them about everyday life, was my breaking point. I had no choice. I CHOSE LIFE. 🙏☺️ I don't know what would be your breaking point. BUT I PRAY TO GOD YOU CHOOSE LIFE.... I LOVE YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU. 💜💜💜 DOWNLOAD DAILY ELEVATION APP AND GET MY BOOK ONLY $2.99 😱 SALE ENDS IN 24 HOURS AND FOLLOW MY MOVEMENT.

I love this cute beanie Jennifer from @craftedincarhartt sent me! Craftedincarhatt celebrates women who are grinding at their passion, especially if that passion is something a man would typically go after. As a female woodworker I am often told to not buy "that" tool, it's too much to handle or be careful with "that" tool because it's dangerous. I am often asked if I am buying tools for my husband or even discouraged to build because woodworking isn't a career. I am often the only female in most woodworking classes, the only black girl at woodworking shows. You know what? I embrace it all, I am one of a few and I love it. It drives me harder and reminds me that no matter who you are or what you look like you can do what your heart has called you to do. I've been told that a woman cannot build, that a mom is too busy to fuss around in the garage. Let alone a mom of 4. Well, I'm here, a girl who loves wood and I'm not going anywhere! I didn't know many women woodworkers until I joined IG this summer and I can say I finally found my tribe. I didn't join for followers or likes, but connections. Thank you tribe, I love y'all!
