Fight through the bad days for the better days. You have to trust the process but understand only hard work and dedication is going to get you where you want to be in life! So never ever quit! Quitting is for cowards
Dark, sweaty, and rainy morning over here in the 716 but looks like it’s burning off.
Day 3 of Max:30 and I maxed out at 11:28, sweat intervals is no joke. I am loving the mental challenge and concept of maxing out in this program. I can’t wait to see my results in just a few weeks 💪🏼
You are either preparing the day or repairing the day. Preparing is all about what I do today that is right that will make tomorrow better. The more you prepare today, the better tomorrow will become
What are you doing today that will set you up for a successful day tomorrow.
For myself and my tribe having this community to talk to, check in with daily, share our victories and struggles is is truly that glue that holds this amazing trifecta of progress together for me.
Nutrition + Workouts + Accountability/Support/Bad@ss Women = 👊🏻💪🏻🙌🏻😍🌈💥🏅💎🎉 The accountability makes a HUGE difference, knowing you are not alone in your struggles, that this IS HARD.
No easy short cuts just hard work, dedication and persistence.
These women are amazing, inspiring and push me to be the BEST me I can be for myself and for them!

Sometimes it’s hard to see the clear path laid out before you. Trust the timing of your life. Ask for what you want and wait for the answer. It will be revealed to you, and it may just be exactly what you were wishing for. #trust#surrender#receive
< You are on the azure blue coast of Izmir in Turkey, the sun and salty water a tonic for your wilted bones. You are spending your days like one of the seagulls flocking around you, ambling, curving through the crowds, seeking sustenance and solitude with the vast ocean. The smooth plastered walls of white, the azure blue window frames; the rhythmic calls to prayer a clockwork of the days unfolding. > ✖️ #TheTaoOfOphelia
There are only 2 things you don't control in your life; your birth (hence your parents, family, and everything that happened before your time) and your death. Everything in between you are in charge of.👸
Stop feeling sorry for yourself! Nothing is going to change this way!
Be the leader of your life! Save yourself because nobody else will. 💪
Life is all about balance; there is no light without shadow, no solutions without problems, no success without failure and no good without evil.
You are strong enough, brave enough, smart enough, good enough, kind enough, beautiful enough and worthy enough to turn your life around the way you and God decided it!🙏❤
So be the heroine of your life, not the victim.🌠
Type YES if you agree. 🌹💕
"Surtout, sois l'heroïne de ta vie, non la victime."
Il n'y a que 2 choses que tu ne contrôles pas dans ta vie: ta naissance (et donc tes parents, ta famille et tout ce qui etait là avant toi) et ta mort. Tout ce qui se trouve entre les 2, tu en as la charge.👸
Cesse de te victimiser! Rien ne changera ainsi!
Sois la directrice de ta vie! Viens a ton propre secours car personne d'autre ne le fera.💪
La vie est une question d'equilibre; il n'y a pas de lumiere sans ombre, pas de solutions sans problemes, pas de reussites sans echecs et pas de bien sans mal.
Tu es assez forte, assez courageuse, assez intelligente, assez bien, assez bonne (non pas cette bonne la ahah), assez belle et tu en vaux suffisamment la peine pour donner a ta vie le sens que toi et Dieu aurez decidé!🙏❤
Alors sois l'heroïne de ta vie et non la victime.🌠
Dis OUI si tu es d'accord. 🌹💕
Agree or disagree? Women who support other women are confident, generous and supportive. They aren't intimidated by weak women because they understand that their weakness is rooted in fear and a lack of self-love.
Would you believe that when we first started Coaching, there were ACTUALLY people out there that said "it's neat to see what you're doing, but how long can you do this?" and I know they were just waiting for me to quit!
Would you believe that after 23 months, there are still people out there that say "okay that's cool, but I can't workout at home and drink THAT shake, it doesn't work".
Would you believe that at 36, I'm totally in the best shape of my life, mentally, physically and financially...all from doing THOSE home workouts!
Would you believe that you can do this too and I can teach you how!!
There are 7 months left in 2018 and I've made it MY GOAL to mentor 5 people a month to help them create a more physically, mentally and financially better life! #wedding2018#momof5#bonusmom#selflove#mexico#tribe#womenempoweringwomen
Rise and Grind to earn your Sweat and Smiles!

There’s something special about waking up early and running. For me, I don’t get the same sense of achievement when I run later in the day! Been on the struggle bus with my workouts last couple of weeks and not finding enough hours in the day (I’m getting old, I know) #ChiMarathon training starts next week so I better quit slacking.
I’m thankful for friends like @noelleuvinha who refuse to give up on me. 4:45AM alarm sounded insane but so glad I got up and got my ass out the door! 5 miles in awesome company!
4 Treadmill Miles - 8:39
1 CD Outdoor Mile - 8:47
Happy Wednesday y’all! Make it a sweaty one!
“How much of your beautiful is strong? How much of your strong is beautiful?” ✨
I think we have all fallen victim to becoming defensive, hateful, and accusing in times when we are met with such responses from another. It’s easy to. But what good does it do to feed hate with hate ? To be a hypocrite of what we ourselves did not appreciate. •
True beauty is in finding understanding, apologizing and admitting fault when necessary, and to stop the repetitive cycle. •
You can still be strong without destroying. In fact, probably stronger. 🖤

Another Wednesday with another #WIA post! This week we are highlighting a woman who is an incredibly successful artist agent and a powerhouse of a lady. Being an agent is a tough job that often comes thankless. That's just another reason why it's great to show them some appreciation through our Women in Advertising series. This weeks nominee has come to us as a nomination from a previous #WIA recipient. A photographer who I adore, Diana Zalucky @dianazalucky. Diana reached out to us & asked to nominate her agent and friend, Cynthia Held @cynthiaheld of @heldanda.
Cynthia has done an amazing job of curating a beautiful roster of artists and if you haven't heard of Held & Associates then you must not know the photography side of our industry! Cynthia is extremely knowledgeable & always so appreciative to have one of her photographers be in the mix, even if it's ten rounds of revisions with 50 talent! Her photographers and colleagues adore her, so much so that Diana had this to say when nominating Cynthia:
"Cynthia cares deeply for every single photographer she represents showing up everyday with unwavering support and dedication to making it happen. She enjoys the good life and nice things as much as she does getting dirty on a new adventure in an unknown placeI I think that is one of the things I love about her most. She embraces the balance of working hard but also playing hard too! I love it!" Cheers to you Cynthia for being this weeks #WIA nominee!
Guys! I just booked the recording studio space to finally turn Spiritually Fierce into an audio book. The plan is to launch it on the one year anniversary of the release of Spiritually Fierce.
Thank you for your patience! I think it's going to be amazing!
As much as I love simplifying my stuff, books are the hardest thing for me to give away.
There are books in every room in our house! I know ebooks would save me so much space, but there's something about holding a real book that I can't let go of.
This stack of books includes some of my faves from the past few months.
From the top:
On Writing Well has been a slow read, as I take the info from each chapter and begin to implement. It's an excellent resource if you're also a writer.
Friendship has been a struggle for me as a mama so I've been exploring how to be more intentional with my friendships this year. This book reinforced what it takes to truly care for others before yourself. If you've been struggling in this area, it's a quick and helpful read.
I'm a paper planner kind of girl and this is my lovely planner from @riflepaperco! This year is the first year I've been attempting to go digital, but I don't think I'll ever be able to go without a paper sidekick.
I love painting flowers and this book has gorgeous arrangements that I pull inspiration from. Sometimes pinterest is distracting and I just can't go there. This book is what I grab on those days.
On the bottom, the giant spiral-bound goal-setting beauty, is my Powersheets. If you haven't heard of these, check them out for next year. This is a powerful way to set intentional goals, and follow through with them, throughout the year. Without them I wouldn't get nearly as much accomplished on the things that matter most to me.
So tell me, do you still crave real books in your hands or have you made the switch to ebooks and a digital calendar?
One of the young girl’s at my session on Saturday asked me how I became who I am. I told her I’m still becoming her. As I looked in the faces of those teenage girls, I saw my reflection: the broken little girl, abandoned at 4 years old. I saw the girl who battled with her physical features and body weight. I saw the girl who rocked no names while everyone else wore brand names. I saw the girl who believed there was no reason to live. The girl who was shamed publicly by people who “loved” her while suffering with her own personal shame privately. That’s what I saw when I looked at them and it fueled my compassion. And when they looked at me, they saw what could bloom out of concrete. They saw what choosing life over death could mean. They saw what perseverance and faith looked like. We were mirrors to one another, reflecting hope. Still overflowing from my time at the @ncbw100li Women and Girls Conference. We mastered our selfies, now we’re doing the real work of mastering our selves💛
↠❥ I lied to everyone about where I was going, because I didn’t have room in my luggage for their fear and judgement on why I couldn’t travel alone. ❥ If you’re a woman and interested in traveling alone, please reach out to me. ❥ I’d love to share my experiences and offer advice, but mostly cheer you on!
