I woke up to sunshine, and it quickly turned into rain and then thunder joined in. All of the chaos outside brought peace and calmness over my entire body. I sat Indian style on my bed in this newly built beautiful hotel room, that was covered with modern designs and plush white covers excitedly daydreaming about the events to come in the next few hours. I was about to marry my best friend, the one that God custom made just for me. Read More
This Particular Friday In September wasn’t different from any other Friday. I walked in, ready to begin our session. She is prepared to take her life back, and losing weight will give her the confidence that she needs to do so. We started off talking and catching up on how her morning was, making a list of what she ate the day before and making sure she took in enough calories. Which was one of her main problems these days. She worked out a little too much and didn’t replenish her body enough. That’s where I come in as her voice of reason.
When I noticed the change Read More
Today started off kind of unbelievable but quickly changed when I saw that I made a big mistake. But let’s not get into that yet, I want to tell you how I prepped as best I could the day before so that today would be amazing. I worked out for an hour and a half and then made a chocolate protein shake, one frozen banana, 1/2 cup chocolate almond milk and 1/2 cup of milk. Then I made the most fantastic salad. I heated up my pan and sauteed Read More

You can call me whatever you want just don’t call me late for dinner. Because I’m not trying to skip any meals.
Ladies, does it feel like no matter what you do no matter what you say, no matter what you wear folks are gonna still talk about you? I know they will. They are going to call you names. You will get laughed at if you are too thin, too chunky, to muscular if your butt is too big or too small. The list goes on and on and on.
You can wear a skirt down to your ankles, and you hear people laughing saying she looks old fashion. You can wear a dress above your knees, and people are going to tell you that you need to act your age. What the hell does that mean? If you bought the clothes, then you wear the clothes. You wear it with confidence and class.
Let people run around and send your pictures back-and-forth to each other and talk about you. Who Cares? Your next meal is the only thing you should be concerned about. Remove your attention from meaningless chit chatter.
Queen hold your head up high and wear your heels higher and strut.
Be well aware that people will always try to put you in a box because that makes them feel comfortable. They are hoping that you suffocate and give up on trying to live your best life.
But I need you to do these two things.
Dropkick that box open and fix your crown.
Place all of your attention towards making you become a better person, a stronger person, a more brave person. It takes guts to know who you are regardless of what others try to make you believe. Let the name-calling fly right passed you because no matter what you do, the probability of you pleasing everyone is slim to none.
Like I said you can call me whatever you want just don’t call me late for dinner.
You could have chosen to read any blog, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel like giving up and throwing in the towel on this whole working out thing. I get so sick of putting on my workout clothes and pressing play on that DVD or beginning my run or looking at an instructor on a stage. But I like food, and I enjoy being healthy.
Fighting to maintain a healthy lifestyle can, at times, feel like an endless battle. For months you can be doing so well and leaping ahead of the game. Then boom just like that your kids out for the summer, which causes your sleep pattern Read More
Yesterday was my birthday, and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Being greeted with love from my family is more than I could’ve asked for. You see that 3 layer cake below. My baby girl made me that from scratch, and the taste was unbelievable. When her friends saw a picture of it, they immediately asked how much she would charge them and just like that orders came rolling in.
But no matter what day it is and no matter how special it is for you, mother duties never end. Read More

When I saw these two pictures, I couldn’t help but laugh. They were taking precisely a year apart. The only thing different between the two photos beside the color of my hair and swimsuits is the location. But here’s the funny part. When I turned 40, my body was shook and panicked. I think my body was rejecting my age more than me. I didn’t know what I should do to just feel like me again. I tried low carb high protein diet, then switched to liquid diets, which consisted of drinking smoothies all day. I tried fasting and eating only at 3:00, and that would be the only meal of the day.
