Mom Bod

There isn’t anything sexier than a mom’s bod. We have been through hell and back with these bodies, and yet we rise. By the time we are 12 or 13, we have experienced more discomfort, aches, and pains from our head to our toes.

Starting in our preteen years, we have had growing pains and menstrual cycles that have prevented us from performing to our highest abilities. Every month for an entire week, we have to adjust our schedule because of cramps and heavy blood flow. Not to mention the headaches, stomach bloating, and cravings that will turn us into a whole new beast. Read More

Woman In The Mirror

The only person that you should compare yourself to is you. There isn’t anyone in this world that is like you.

You are authentic, and you deserve to be happy. We should all feel complete and confident in who we are. But it’s hard to get to that happy place when you are focusing on everyone around you and not that woman in the mirror.

She is waiting for you to pay attention to her and only her.

Show her some love today! Look at yourself for motivation and stop #comparing you to everyone else.

We are all on a #different path.

We are all starting from a different point in our #life. Read More

The Bigger They Are The Harder They Fall

The bigger they are, the harder they fall!

I have said this a million times, and let me tell this statement is so true. In this day in age, we tune into social media, and the first thing we see is one big fake butt after another.

Social media glorifies large gluteus maximus, and it doesn’t matter if they are real or fake.

All they need to be is LARGE!

It blows my mind how many fake butts I see daily. Now, I don’t know if fake butts fall like real ones, but if they do, then this post is for all of you as well. Read More

Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day And Neither Was A Bikini Body

If you get a group of women together, I guarantee you will hear them list all the things they need to change before summer. They will express exhaustion just thinking about how long it’s going to take to slim down their thighs, hips, stomach, and arms.

I have clients that are putting there all into a 1 1/2 hour workouts for a few weeks. They get downright giddy about pounds dropping off. Then month 2 arrives, weight loss slows down, and disappointment sets in. Read More

The Mortgage Is Due On The First

No matter how you slice and dice it, we all know that the mortgage is due on the first. You can buy whatever you need or want, but you better put aside enough for the mortgage. I know we all want to have fun and live a little. Which, to some, may mean to stop worrying about the bills that are due and focus on the now. Living in the moment!

I’m guilty of living in the now, and then I have buyers’ remorse and return everything. I literally have expenses written out to the penny, and I leave a little room for the kids must-haves that they tell me about at the last minute. I keep that little cushion because I refuse to put my hand in our savings account.

I treat my body like I do my mortgage. If you are good with bills, then you will nail this too.

If I were to ask you how long do you want to live?

I doubt that I will get an overwhelming amount of folks to say, “Oh, I’m ready to go now, I’m totally ready to check out.” But instead, I assume we all want to live a long healthy, happy, and productive life.

So if this is true for you, then this is what I have to say.

Make healthy deposits into your life every day. Think twice about what you are putting into your body and make it a habit to read the labels on every food item you purchase. I urge you to be cautious about the time of day or night that you are eating. I know that night time is the most challenging because we tend to get a little snacky while we are up watching our favorite programs. I know the feeling, and I encourage you to eat. But make wise decisions and make sure you engaged in physical activity for a minimum of 30 minutes each day. Your body deserves that self-care and attention or in the end, you may suffer.

Suffer from all of the bad choices stacked on top of each other and leaving you with poor health in the end. Simply put, your body is just like your mortgage, at some point in the near future your bill will come due. So don’t spend all of your money on unnecessary things and now because of those items you’re homeless.

Why gamble with your mortgage money? When you know that the odds are not in your favor to win.

Why gamble with your health? When you know the odds are not in your favor to avoid high medical bills or early death.

Start

treating your body like you do your mortgage. If you don’t,

your mortgage may not be the only bill due on the first.

Just A Mom That Got Fat

I was just a mom that got fat — just that simple.

I started putting more attention towards my kids and all of their concerns and put myself on the back burner. The things that I needed and wanted became insignificant and not worth discussing. Over the years, I lost myself and even forgot what use to excite me, other than my family. Read More

My Body Hates Me

Today marks day 11 of my 30 challenge, and my body is feeling it. When I woke up this morning, I tried to lift my head up, and I struggled. So I laid back down and had to reason with God. Asking him to please give the strength to lift my big head off the pillow. Read More

Balance

Learning how to bring balance to every aspect of my life. Taking time to breathe and show appreciation to my body and everything around me.

Enjoy Your Thursday!
