Since its our 3 year anniversary I thought I compare skinny mini newly wed Zohra from 3 years ago to now! 
I hear it often that once you get married you get comfortable and "let yourself go". We were at a point in life where we got comfortable and didn't care to eat right or workout. 
Let's take size out of the picture... but there was a point where I was not feeling myself and wasn't happy. I leaned on junk food ALOT. Ryan and I decided to do better and when we made a lifestyle change... we started having a better relationship. It's crazy how a healthy lifestyle change can be more than just about fitness and looking good. 
It made me a better wife and mother. We weren't complaining anymore and we argue way less than we did before (duh it's normal to argue in marriage). This is also proof that you can make muscles without heavy lifting and you can still look like a woman with muscles! 💁‍♀️💪💁‍♀️💪 #goingonstrong 
#unhealthy90pounds to #healthy115pounds

3 years ago I packed my bag to Chicago and said I do to the love of my life. I still remember that moment like it was yesterday. Some people may have thought we were crazy and you can say that, but all we knew is we wanted to be together and with blessings from our parents we made it official. 
A story I wanted to tell you is hours before we said I do.... I had lost a contact lens while showering (bridezilla?) And I was so upset I was crying and kept saying "omg I won't be able to see you while we exchange our vows" etc. 
Time is ticking and Ryan calmly and collectively called a bunch of eye places where he convinced one of the lady to give him a pair of contacts he was willing to pay anything for. Luckily, that lady was so sweet she saw me dressed in a cute white dress and didn't bother charging us.

Why do I tell you this story? Because it was that moment I realized this man is willing to do anything to make sure I'm happy. I mean sure I could have gone without one contact lens but he saw how upset I was. He saw how much this day meant to me so he remained calm and took care of it. 
For us it wasn't about having a fancy wedding... it was about us wanting to declare our love in front of God and make it official. We wanted to share every moment together.... fast forward 3 years.... We have a beautiful daughter, we have grown stronger together, we are very much happy, and that's all we ever wanted. 
Happy 3 years Ryan and here's to many many more to come.

Perfect is not the goal. 👌🏻 I have dealt with every single demon {anorexia, bulimia, depression, anxiety} years of self doubt, lack of self love and truly had no clue what I liked or what I enjoyed in life because I was too worried what others were doing. 
Let me tell you that is a trap and crappy way to go through life. 
Today, I am  proud to say I am 100% okay with how I feel in my skin. 
I could careless what others are doing or what they enjoy because I know what I like and where I am going. 
I am confident.
I love me--- all of me. 
Beautifully flawed and imperfect.

I have stretch marks from having my baby, I have cellulite, Dark spots on my skin. But, you will no longer catch me staring in the mirror and judging myself. Picking my body apart or body shaming myself. I don't even weigh myself anymore. 
Why?

Because life is too short to worry about those things. The scale and eating disorders robbed over so many years of my life. 
Numbers controlled how I felt the entire day. And I almost let the voices and opinions of others rob me from my destiny. Fitness is so much more then physical. It is just as much mental + spiritual. 
I workout because I love my body and want to take care of it. I train for my health so I have energy + vitality. 
It is my passion and something I enjoy doing for me because if not me then who will. 
Sometimes you look at transformation pictures online and we are quick to judge the external appearance. When the internal transformations are really what need to be applauded. Cause once you change the way you view + talk to yourself it opens up a whole new world! Instead of perfect let's focus more on happiness and love. The world would sure be more beautiful if we did. 
I still have 8 spots left in my July self love and happiness project. If your interested feel free to comment below or message me for more details.

Day 1 of 90

We all have a fear... fear of being judged, fear of not being good enough, fear of failure.

I have tons of fear but in order for change I had to make my fear my strength and just do the best I can to achieve my goals.

In order to get results, in order to change, you need to let go of your fear and just do it. Just start and keep going!

LIVE YOUR 《P A S S I O N》  If you knew the old me I have always had a  hard time talking to people, I have also noticed I have a minor speech issue with my stutter which prevented me from making conversation in fear of sounding weird.

But today I went Facebook live in our private group giving tips on budgeting. I had no clue in a million years I would be able to overcome my fear of talking to people, 6000+ to be exact. 
I have always been an introvert and thought this type of career wasn't for me because I just can't talk to people. I was so wrong because I have made friends all over the country and talk to them on a regular basis (via video chat or phone calls). I knew I had a voice, a story that could help many, so I decided to take the plunge and go for it. I am so glad I did because it has helped me become wiser and stronger. I am proudly living a life with purpose and passion. 
This moment had led me of overcoming my struggles and sharing my story all because I didn't let my fears get to me and said yes to a huge opportunity that has helped me in so many ways in life. 
Would you take that step of overcoming and freedom? Or would you let your passion slip away?

Happy Saturday! Woke up feeling thankful for another beautiful day and being able to wake up to my handsome sailor!

And of course I need my shakeo on the go so my cravings don't get crazy at the restaurant.

Whats the one thing that keeps you going? That one thing that keeps you wanting to do better and be better? 
Before I was pregnant and had my beautiful daughter... I felt I had nothing going for me. I didn't have that push, that desire to want more than what was given. 
When people say they have no motivation to do anything or it's hard to keep up... trust me I've been there and it sucks! We have a choice of either doing things the hard way and achieving so much with it or doing things the easy way and achieving very little to nothing at all. 
After I had my daughter I couldn't think of just doing the bare minimum and living paycheck to paycheck. There had to be something done so like any mom you do what you can to provide. Leaving my daughter in the hands of a stranger who would have the luxury of watching her wasn't an option for me. Nor did I want to work for a job that didn't fulfill or gave me purpose. 
After crying for help from God... I found my calling. My calling to stay home with my daughter, pursue my passion in helping others see more potential in them, and help people with a healthier lifestyle change.  I didn't wait around for a change to happen but an opportunity came knocking and I took that chance and have since never looked back.

These two pictures represent how far I have came and how strong I have become. This lifestyle change was more than just a physical transformation.... it has been a mental and an emotional one. My daughter has been the main reason I push to keep going.

For those of you wanting a change in life whether that's your career, family, or health. Are you just saying you want a change or are you finding ways to change it? 
If you are wanting a change whether that's wanting to work from home or become healthier than let me help you. I would love to help you reach your goals and find your calling. I only ask for you to give me your all. If so comment below or message me and we can chat one on one.

Here's a little #mondaymotivation tag a friend who needs a reminder.
I took a leap... leap of faith after trying so many "diets" nothing stuck! I wish I knew before that a quick fix wasn't the answer. 
You know what was the answer.... letting go of my ego, letting go of my pride of not wanting others help, letting go of my trust issues of someone who genuinely saw the silent cry of help, and letting go of doubt. It was about finding myself through this journey of hard work and determination. 
These results are not to boast myself at all or think I'm perfect (far from it). I post these pictures to not just see how far along I have came through this journey, but I post in hopes that my story reaches out to even ONE person. As women we have a hard time being happy and we are our worst critique. So we find whatever it takes to look like the girl you compare yourself in magazines.

I am here to tell you we have to stop playing the comparison game... we should love ourselves no matter what... You should love other women and not judge them because of who they are or what they wear or what their body shape is. 
This picture is not just a physical comparison but it's so much more than that. I have become a better person just from a healthy lifestyle change. I have learned to love myself and I have learned to listen to the beautiful people and understand them. 
So do yourself a favor and wake up tomorrow and everyday and kickass! Message 5 of your gal friends and tell them how badass they are! Continue to be the best version of yourself ALWAYS!

You were the first person to hold me when I came into this world and from that moment I felt safe. You would hold me all night when I wanted to be comforted and your singing was my lullaby. I wrapped my hand around your finger and you would watch me sleep in awe.

We may have spent more time apart than together but the moments we have together are the ones that fill my life with joy. I love you daddy and the sacrifices you make for me and mommy. Your hard work does not go unnoticed. Thank you daddy for showering me with love and goodnight kisses. You will always be my first love daddy!

The sweetest soul I have ever seen. I am truly blessed to her mother. I can't help but fall in love with her more and more.

Here's a #flashbackfriday and  #nonscalevictory

I love getting reminders of how far along I have came with this journey of mine. It also reminds me that it's okay to be a beginner because that's how you grow and we all start somewhere right?

I had no idea that with these 30 minute workouts I could become stronger and do normal pushups for a straight minute! Here's to many more victories... small and big!
