I debated sharing this because as a “coach” I always feel the need to be the most motivated and the most positive. But I realized, coach or not, I am a human who has struggles and challenges too. I came across this on the ‘gram this morning and it completely resonated with me. Having a side business has been a blessing in so many ways but dang if it’s not an emotional rollercoaster. I’ve been in one of the lows this month which has really tested my Why and my Purpose. I’ve been struggling with the thought if this is even the right choice for me. .
But then I remember the depressed, anxious, lost girl I was a few years ago who found herself again after joining an accountability group. .
I remember how amazing I felt after completing my first accountability group both physically but more importantly mentally. And like I wanted every female to feel that same way about them self and their body.
I remember all the amazing women currently in my groups who are crushing their health and fitness goals and making a healthier, happier lifestyle.
I remember my tribe of coaches and how they are putting themselves out there everyday to inspire others. And how much they inspire me to keep pushing so that I can help lead and mentor them to success. .
I remember that we’ve been able to pay for 6 vacations this year without debt. .
I remember that my husband works in the tumultuous world of college football and that a his job is never guaranteed. And having a supplement to our income may be a saving grace one day. .
I remember all the people that have reached out and thanked me for being the source of their inspiration and motivation to make a change in their own lives
These are the reasons I coach. This is the fuel to my fire that keeps me going when it gets hard and frustrating. This is My WHY.
Believe it or not there was a time where I cared what others thought.
Everyone experiences it.
You want to fit in.
You want to feel accepted.
You want to be included.
I’m telling you the exact opposite.
I wish my younger self had learned to say screw it a lot earlier.
Screw wanting to be everyone’s friend.
Screw being the girl that everyone likes.
Screw trying to fit a certain mold.
All of my happiness has come from learning to say screw it.
If I had cared what people thought I wouldn’t have transferred schools and be graduating early.
I wouldn’t be living at home saving money and creating memories with my family.
I wouldn’t be getting married at a young age to the man of my dreams.
I wouldn’t be posting my life on Instagram making friends with amazing girls from all over.
So learn to say SCREW IT.
Put your happiness first.
Do what you want to do.
Be the person you want to be.
Day 144 of meditation! In my mindfulness practice, my exercise today was to be mindful of what is happening around me while driving. 😂😂 So here’s what I noticed: A cow running down the road being chased by a man on a quad trying to usher him back into his pen all while a little old lady and a little old man chased both the quad and the cow! I swear if the cow could have looked over her shoulder and stuck out her tongue she would have! 😂😂
What reminds you of you...? I’ve been making a conscious effort lately to be a little bit selfish and do a few things for me. Nothing big, just trying to workout, (just doing a few rounds with the 7 minute workout app!) fake tanned my not as hairy as usual legs, listening to my music more and not the Frozen soundtrack on bloody repeat, writing and working...it’s having such a positive impact on my mood and how I feel about myself. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got a long way to go and most days I wish I had it together more or looked like everyone else I see on here. I want my girls to be proud of me and that’s not going to happen unless I start remembering who I once was a little bit more. What kind of things remind you of who you once were? I’d love to hear what you do to make yourself feel more positive and little bit like the old you? (P.s this is the face of a Mumma who started drinking prosseco at 11am last Saturday to celebrate the Royal Wedding 🙊) #selfcare#lookingafterme#thisisparenting#motherhoodunplugged#motherhoothroughinstagram#selflove

It is a gorgeous ✨ day out today. Too bad I can’t enjoy it for long without slathering myself with 150 SPF or hiding in the shadows 😆. Looking forward to a long weekend 🙏🏻✨#aestheticAF#paleforlife#daywalker
Slowly stepping back into the body I’ve been working towards!
Since starting the 2B Mindset program through Beachbody I’ve lost 6lb in just over 2 weeks - for ME that’s huge. Especially with how slow my body is with weight loss.
I’m excited to be feeling a little leaner, less bloated and more like me. I’ve still got a ways to go before I’m back to where I was last year, but one day at a time and I’ll be back feeling more comfortable in my own skin.
I didn’t make a drastic change to see these results, just a couple tweaks and changes in habit and I’m able to SEE the work I’m putting in.
I’m really looking forward to the progress I can make over the next few weeks and months! 💪🏻😏
gloomy days are for drinking phatty matcha in bed💆🏻 I just love turning inwards and relaxing during rainy days, and expending more energy when it’s hot and sunny (when I have a chance, of course—we can’t always control how we act based on the weather)! Do you do that or is it just me?? ☀️☁️ .
I’ve been loving this blend of matcha lately—here ya go! 🍵🍵🍵
Approx 1-1/2 cups hot but not boiling water
1 Tbs @nutiva coconut butter
2 scoops @vitalproteins grass fed gelatin (or you could do collagen)
1 tsp @mizubateaco culinary grade matcha—my FAV!!!! 1/4 tsp @mountainroseherbs ashwagandha for immunity! .
Blend in your @vitamix or any blender starting on low, then let it blend on high for about a minute. Pour into your favorite mug (I love my @earthandelement—#topanga friends) SIP AND ENJOY! ✨
✨ happy friday !!! ✨
& because I get asked ~ ring is by @treeoflife_love ✨ xx
I am considering a post which may help people understand the disordered eating mindset a little better. It is not an easy thing to share but maybe some of you will be able to relate or benefit. Maybe it will help you understand yourself or a loved one better. Anyway lots of love to everyone xx
Stop the vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting. Quit “committing” to calorie restrictive, unsustainable, and unrealistic diets. They will continue leaving you frustrated because they don’t work.
What you really need is to learn about whole food nutrition and macronutrients and WHY they are the answers to a truly healthy life. What you think is healthy probably isn’t (low-fat and low-calorie foods), and what you think isn’t healthy probably is (carbs and fats). MIND.BLOWN.
The culture we live in has been filling our minds with inaccurate and misleading information. It’s not your fault!
The FASTer Way To Fat Loss is 100% based on science! Simple as that. Our strategies work, and there are numerous reasons why. This program will be the last “diet” you will ever spend money on because it will become your life, just like it’s become mine.

You have this O N E life. How are you going to live it. Are you going to live life dieting? Restricting? Hating your self image? Wishing you had the ‘perfect’ body? No. This is no way of living girlfriend. I spent too many years wasting time living like this. The answer is not to eat less but to eat more nourishing foods. The answer is not to restrict but to have more balance and ease. The answer is not to follow a diet but to eat more intuitively. The answer is not to obsess about food but eat what your body craves. The answer is not to see food as good or bad it’s to enjoy all of the foods in moderations My top tip when you have binged or you feel overwhelmed and frustrated at yourself for not sticking to your ‘diet, is to- f o r g i v e. Let it go. Be kind to yourself. Move forward. Don’t get stuck and dwell on the past. You are not alone. You are worthy. You are powerful. You are pure strength. I believe in you. You’ve got this 🎀👊🏻 TAG a friend who may need to hear this today!
