3 Steps to Take Before You Can Lose Weight

This is my first #TransformationTuesday post in maybe 5 years. It’s 7 weeks to the date that I started this journey, and have officially lost a total of 17 pounds.

I’m not writing this to toot my own horn BY ANY MEANS. After going back & forth about even posting at all, I decided to write this for all the girls who may feel like I did just 2 months ago.

How You Know the Universe is Trying to Tell You Something

Every day in Yoga Sculpt, before you start, the teacher asks you to set an intention.

This morning, I closed my eyes and said “letting  go.”

…of every person, every feeling, everything that’s not serving me anymore.

Then, the teacher sometimes chimes in and offers her personal intention with the class. Not a second later she says: Continue reading “How You Know the Universe is Trying to Tell You Something”

Signs you may be gluten intolerant

Let’s put it plain and simple…

Lately I’ve felt like straight dog shit. I haven’t slept a full night in months. I am fatigued beyond belief. My mood goes from high to low in the blink of an eye. Focus and mental clarity is nonexistent. Itchy is an understatement when it comes to my skin. Despite consistent efforts to lose weight, my body rejects it.

Monday Motivation

Happy MONDAY ya’ll! I wanted to share a GREAT reminder from my devotional today 🙏🏼✌🏼

Friday Inspiration

The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

The past is there for a reason. It has strengthened, grown and molded you into who you are today. Whether it’s a painful or pretty past, it served a purpose.

Instead of fighting what was (or is), choose to trust that you’re exactly who and where you are supposed to be. If you’re not in the body you want, if you haven’t met Mr. Right, if you don’t have the dream job you thought you’d have, it’s OK.
