I remember crying before I went in to work at night for my shift. 👀
Not because I didn’t love nursing, but because I knew I was walking into an understaffed, under-supported unit with really sick babies that needed more attention than I could possibly give.
The things is you can be doing something you love and still have it not be right for you.
It is such an amazing feeling to wake up every day excited to work. To be able to really help people with their health. To be a part of an amazing supportive team. ❤️
Do you love what you do?

After this wedding, I feel like all bridal prep rooms should have at least one antler chandelier present. So epic!
I’ve been a yo yo dieter since early college. It started when someone I loved called me fat. I lost 30 lbs in less than 4 weeks because I wanted to be “skinny” so he couldn’t ever say that about me again. I barely ate. I would count calories like it was my job. I wouldn’t allow myself over a set amount. It was less than I currently eat for a snack. I was always thinking about food and constantly hungry. It was a cycle from there. .
I would gain a little weight and hop into the latest fad my friends were doing to drop a few pounds. Diet pills, no carb diet, cabbage soup diet, weight watchers, no fat diet, skipping meals.... the list went on and on! Every diet program I tried made me feel deprived. I labeled certain foods off limits. I struggled with intense food cravings daily, and would quickly see the weight creep back if I even looked at bread. .
I made a decision to release the power the scale had over me. I started fueling my body with quality foods and didn’t allow any food group to be off limits. I drink a daily nutritional shake to help me get to my goals quicker. I exercise around 30 minutes from home 5 or so days a week. I lost 70 lbs. I found more food freedom and increased confidence.
Now I teach this program to others as a health coach. I mentor women on their wellness journey. If you want to take control of your life I would love to help you. Message me for details on how to join my online bootcamp! 💪🏼

💥Next 5 people who bust thru their fears and commit to their journey with me will receive a $20 gift card (of their choosing) from yours truly. 😘 I’ll hand deliver that thing if I have to!
I’m easing the burden of money 💸 because I know it’s a pain point for many people. I get it. I tried everything when searching for what would give me life long results and I was scared to spend money on yet another thing, because I had failed so many other times. Little did I know, it was an INVESTMENT in my health.
But I was fed up. I was tired of feeling defeated, uncomfortable in my own skin, and having a whopping GOOSE EGG of confidence. So sister, if you’ve been watching and want to take that small bit of risk, here’s your chance.⚡️
Lock in your spot because once the 5 spots are filled, that’s it y’all! I don’t ever do this, but I know there are ladies out there reading this who are scared to commit. 😕 Sister, this one’s for you. Message me, complete your enrollment, and the gift card is yours! 🥳

I discovered recently that being at school by itself causes me anxiety. My high school experience taught me to look out, protect myself, avoid certain groups, take specific hallways so I don’t get made fun of or threatened. I always felt like my body was in physical danger every time I was at school, and absolutely hated being there with the exception of drama class.
Being at this college is a much different experience obviously, but it’s very hard for me to adjust to it. I always am being shy and protective of myself. Whenever people are helpful, I am apprehensive and sometimes very rude.
I work really hard every day to make sure I don’t give off mean vibes, that way my classmates don’t hate me lol. My stress energy has been a little lower since I started school again. Understanding my stress has been a huge part of that. Hopefully by the time I start my sound engineering classes I will have worked out this stress so I can take a bigger class load. But hey, if I can’t stress it too hard, then that’s ok too 😊.
Also I missed National Denim Day, and I just want to point out I WEAR LEVI’S ALL THE TIME. DENIM IS SEXY, DENIM IS COMFY, DENIM IS UTILITY.

Leaping for that next hold ✊🏻. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Side note: when do people stop climbing in Red Rocks? This week has pretty much been hovering around 30°c 🥵. I don’t think I’d survive summers in the desert! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

9/10 best landscapes I’ve ever visited: Himalaya, Nepal⠀
I’m sure you’ve already realized I’m a mountain lover. So of course visiting the Himalaya was a dream since I was young. My first trip went through the classic Annapurna circuit. 20 days hiking, being in nature, just moving with my own energy through the impressive and always changing landscape zones of the Annapurna circuit was for sure one of the best things I’ve ever done in my whole life. Thinking back makes me smile but also brings tears in my eyes when I think about this strong feeling of freedom I felt there. ⠀
Did you had such an experience where you felt free like never before? ⠀ ⠀
