Fact: I never EVER pictured myself being a stay at home mama.
Fact: I graduated with a bachelors
degree in criminal justice, spent 13 weeks at a law enforcement academy, and spent 9 years in a career, and walked away from it cold turkey to stay home with my babies.
Fact: Some days are hard with a fussy baby and a sassy toddler, but I will never regret the decision i made! .
Fact: One if my biggest fears was that I am such a social person, I’d go CRAZY not having adult interaction.
Fact: I have daily contact and “work” with a community of women, who are now my best friends who i met on the Internet! .
Fact: If you aren’t happy where you are, have bigger goals and dreams for your family, want to raise you babies instead of sending a paycheck off to a daycare... I want to show you, YOU CAN DO THIS TOO. .
I once pulled on a slightly loose thread... once I pulled the thread, I couldn’t stop pulling at it. By pulling this thread I became more aware of who I was, what I’d been through, what I hadn’t dealt with and what my life actually was.
Pulling the thread revealed so much to me, so much that it was overwhelming and kind of scary at the time. But I cannot express how grateful I am to unravel and reveal this other realm of life! It has allowed me to seek for self-love, self-forgiveness, happiness... but most of all give me this huge boost of ambition!
It’s incredible what you can achieve when you are honest with yourself and allow yourself to become vulnerable. ✨
Your scars are symbols of your strength.
Don’t ever be ashamed of the scars life has left you with. A scar means the hurt is over and the wound is closed. It means you conquered the pain, learned a lesson, grew stronger, and moved forward. A scar is the tattoo of a triumph to be proud of. Don’t allow your scars to hold you hostage. Don’t allow them to make you live your life in fear. You can’t make the scars in your life disappear, but you can change the way you see them. You can start seeing your scars as a sign of strength and not pain.
Suas cicatrizes são os símbolos da sua força
Nunca tenha vergonha das cicatrizes que vida lhe deixou. Uma cicatriz significa que a dor já passou e que a ferida está fechada. Isso significa que você venceu a dor, aprendeu uma lição, ficou mais forte e seguiu em frente. A cicatriz é a tatuagem de um triunfo para se orgulhar. Não permita que suas cicatrizes o mantenham como refém. Não permita que as cicatrizes façam você viver sua vida com medo. Você não pode fazer as cicatrizes da sua vida desaparecer, mas você pode mudar a maneira de enxergá-las. Você pode começar a ver as suas cicatrizes como um sinal de força e não de dor.
“Sometimes I’m tired of pretending like everything is ok because sometimes it isn’t. So although you see what you see, the battle is never far away, but also neither is my fighting spirit. Continue to make your best life and keep trying even when life keeps knocking you down.” #findyourfreedom ⚽️🥊🥊

Comfort zones are boring and who wants to be boring. ✌🏼
Losing weight is hard.
Maintaining weight is hard.
Building muscle is hard.
Eating healthy is hard.
Being busy is hard.
Working out with a baby is hard.
Being tired is hard.
Girl, if you haven’t noticed, it is ALL hard.
It is hard to be overweight, getting out of breath after one flight of stairs and always feeling like the biggest one in the room. It is hard to go shopping when nothing fits and you feel like so uncomfortable in your skin. It is hard to feel held back by your lack of self-confidence and have very little energy.
I know because I have been there.
It is hard to eat healthy, especially when others around you aren’t. It is hard to find a time to work out between work, the kids, and taking care of the house. It is hard when the process feel slow and you find yourself in a plateau, even when you are working so hard.
I know because I have also been there.
Hard things come with consequences - good and bad.
But I would rather take a hard path that leads to confidence, pride, self-love, happiness and joy. Rather than taking the path that leads me further down the path of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, unhappiness and guilt.
Choose your hard, girl. My next bootcamp starts in a couple weeks. I have a spot waiting just for you. 💪🏻👯♀️💜 You ready to do this?
The sounds of Sweet Jamaica~
Not gonna lie it’s different knowing I’m about to experience a whole different atmosphere!
Jamaica has become my second home and I’m comfortable traveling there! I know the people and places - the dialogue & culture..
But I also know growth comes outside of comfort zones and it’s time to switch things up and gain a new perspective.
I’m heading to Bali next week! 😍
& although it won’t be familiar, I’m really excited to explore this new lush, tropical and spiritual land.
I feel new levels of self awakening approaching & soo grateful for the opportunity ✨🙏🏻
Stay tuned 🌿
