"I don't have regrets because everything I've done has made me who I am." Ummm NO. I don't agree with that statement anymore. I used to. But now I have a LOT of regrets when I look back on my life because I KNEW BETTER and some of the hurt, heart ache & hardship could have been avoided.
Being a "comeback story" isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Sooooo... stay close to God, stay on track with your health goals, work passionately at your career, and always put your family first. > YOU WILL NEVER REGRET STAYING ON TRACK!!! <

We ALL hear that little voice in our head chatter about things we "need to change" on a daily basis... but why is it that KNOWING we need to change just simply is NOT ENOUGH?
Well, that's because CHANGE IS HARD and can be darn right PAINFUL! We fear the unknown, potential failure, and being outside of our comfort zones!
It takes GUTS to commit to quit TALKING about it... and start BEING about it. It takes a RISK-TAKER to face the possibility of FAILURE head on and not back down. It takes someone really discovering WHY THAT CHANGE is important to them, beyond the surface reasons, for them to associate MORE PLEASURE in accomplishing it, than the pain of simply starting something new.
I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU to listen to yourself today, write down the changes you keep hearing yourself TALK about making... figure out WHY they are important to you... and then TAKE ACTION towards making them happen! "I need to eat healthier" (not because you want to look good in a swimsuit, but rather something like you know your kids are watching and following in your footsteps or your mom and dad both come from a line of people who suffered heart attacks and you refuse to follow down that same path.) "I need to find a new job" (Not because you need more money, but because you need to be passionate about what you spend your time doing... or the extra money will create more FREEDOM to spend your time doing things you love... and/or with the people you love!
Get what I am sayin'?! FIND the REAL REASON WHY you want to make that change --- and the conviction and GUTS it takes to change will find you!!! Together, you are UNSTOPPABLE! "Knowing you need to make a change isn't enough. You've got to find the GUTS to do it! " ---Robert Kiyosaki
Today I chose to be intentional! I chose to be happy, look at the bright side, make healthy choices and lead by example!! It's just that simple... You just wake up and say that's it... I own the ability to say that this is NOT how the story will end!!! If you want to change the only person that can make that happen is YOU!!! Sooo let's rise and grind today!!!! I have a fire in my soul and grace in my heart.

I was struggling physically, mentally, and emotionally the way I felt about myself and where my life was going . I was still searching for the next, ...and greatest quick fix. I was still miserable in my skin, 98% of the time. I felt like a fraud as I stumbled my way through figuring out a business, a life, and battling my own insecurities.
Slowly but surely though, thanks to the amazing support of my team, I started to change. I took on leadership roles, I got to support others, and I had others supporting me. ME. I got my confidence back!
It was through all of this that I realized I am capable of whatever I put my mind to. I sit here free from anxieties about my body, free from my fears of myself, and I get to support others on their journeys to grow dream lives, dream bodies, and dream health.
It’s amazing how much life can change in a year or two and I feel so blessed that now I get to share this with so many others. This journey I’ve been on has never been easy, and it’s certainly never been perfect but I have learned more, grown more, and transformed more than I could have ever imagined.
I almost thought she was one of the stuffed animals. 😂

After having two kids, I thought I would never get that athletic bug back...the girl you knew felt strong. I had this tummy that stuck out, my energy was low, I lost so much muscle and I just didn't feel good about myself. It wasn't all physical that I was striving to change, it was mental and emotional too...I was tired of feeling BLAH and was ready to unleash the fiery mommy I knew I was.
I found the things that finally helped me make a come back and I feel strong, confident, and energetic again. Plus I am showing my kids what its like to be healthy.
I had the dreams of feeling fit, healthy, and happier and I am doing it and not stopping.
Today I finished Day 70 of an 80 day home workout program and then added a run in after. Who am I? A totally different person than I was 3 years ago when I started this journey. I can show you too if you would like to chat with me.
I love you Florida! After having the coldest winter of our lives it's 80 degrees today. No complaints from this beach girl.

You will be amazed when things fall magically into place. It's all about the hustle.

What if you're WRONG? What if you CAN be happy...What if you SHOULD start that business...What if people DID support you. What if you CAN succeed? What if all the fears in your head are WRONG?! #HappyMonday#goforit

I love the outdoors so when it's 66 and sunny I am outside for exercise. Come on Spring!
I remember how...
My clothes didn't fit
My body felt sluggish
My skin didn't glow
I didn't have energy
I wanted to feel beautiful
I regretted what I was eating
I wished I didn't have to workout
I wanted to change
Now I workout for...
The feeling after I workout
The feeling of accomplishment
