I WANT TO LOSE THAT STUBBORN WEIGHT, BUT I ALSO DON’T WANT TO BE RESTRICTED TO A “DIET.” You feel me on this one? Just a few short years ago. Counting calories controlled my life. I entered them calories into MyFitnessPal like it was my FULL TIME job. If we went out to eat, I would start to panic because I had no idea what the calorie count was for that grilled chicken sandwich or sweet potato fries and would just end up getting a salad. If there was a work event or donuts in the break room, I would avoid it like the plague. Carbs are bad.🙅🏼♀️ No dessert in the plan. Don’t eat too much fruit because they are high in sugar. Don’t touch those starchy carbs… especially at night. Red meat…. Don’t even think about it. What I have found is the more we restrict ourselves when it comes to our food, the more our body begins to go into starvation mode. So how do we break the cycle and still enjoy the dessert at our Christmas party? Here are a few tips that have been a game changer in my journey and what I teach my clients.🌟 🌟The afternoon is rolling around. You are sitting at your desk and all you want is that pumpkin bread in the break room. You are STARVING even though you just ate 2 hours ago. Drink a big glass of water. You may actually be hungry... but most of the time your body is just thirsty or bored.😉 🌟When you’re eating, be present. Enjoy each bite. Don’t sit in front of the TV. We end up scarfing down the food and then our minds think we are still hungry so we go for dessert. But in reality, it can take up to 15 minutes for our stomachs to tell our brain that we are full. 🌟Try new foods. Did you know your taste buds change every 7 years?Yes.. you heard me right! I used to absolutely hate veggies. I would sit at the table for hours as a kid because I refused to eat my veggies and now I kind of enjoy them... Lastly.. Girl, REMEMBER this is a journey. Be patient. Be kind. & love yourself through it all. Because you are showing up even though this road it tough and a bit hard to navigate. Do you struggle with restrictions, too?
Please read this if you have been feeling the guilt today because of #sundayfunday or any other #weekend shenanigans… I wish someone would have told me this sooner… It’s just one day… your goals are not ruined because of one meal or a day of #binging Stop with the guilt… we put so much pressure on ourselves. You eat clean all week and then the weekend comes and you want to treat yourself. But this guilt you are putting on yourself isn’t getting you any closer to your goals. Mindset is everything. I know. You’ve heard it a million times. But I am going to tell you for the millionth and one time. You can kill yourself in the gym for 2-3 hours and eat 1,000 calories a day. But if you do not trust the journey. Trust that you’re body is healing from the inside-out and it starts with your mindset. Sooo… find the small wins. Maybe you chose a salad instead of that burger. Maybe you went on a walk with your husband and the kids. Maybe you drank half your body weight in water. Whatever it is. Give yourself a pat on the back and celebrate because those small wins will turn into even bigger wins. And girl, give yourself a break. No one is perfect. No one’s journey is the same. Just trust the process and maybe have a bit of fun while doing it. #dancepartayalways If you loved this, make sure a tag a friend who would love it too.💞
DO YOU EVER FEEL LIKE AN OUTSIDER LOOKING IN? When I was just a kid, I was in a band. Imagine Spice Girls, but take it down a notch. 😂 Where my 90’s babies at? We thought we were all that and a bag of chips. 5 eight year old girls and a sleep over, you can put anything together. 💃 As the night went on we decided that there could only be 5 people and not 6 so someone would have to be voted out. Because 6 is just too many for a girl band. While we were all hesitant, the girl that got voted out was me. It cut deep. I remember my mom coming to pick me up at 4am in the morning and I just couldn’t stop crying. She asked me what was wrong and I was so ashamed I wouldn’t even tell her. While this was forever ago, it hurt me to my core and for a long time, I kept anyone from getting close. I would have surface level friends, just acquaintances, but nothing deep. As time went on, I found true friends and continued to open my heart even if it was crushed. And even though it was scary. In a world of social media, we scroll every morning, during lunch breaks and even that afternoon lull. We feel like an outsider looking in, just craving connection. Asking ourselves why does she look so happy? How does she have so many friends? Why can’t I just have that? While I had so many takeaways from this weekend, my biggest one from this weekend was just be YOU. #PTBB 2019 Let your light shine. Push past the negative thoughts and comments and the judgement. You will attract your favorite people. If your funny, be crazy funny. If you are quirky, be quirky. If you are nerdy, be nerdy. If you love Harry Potter, shout it to the rooftops. If you love dressing to the nines, do it and OWN it. They will love you or hate you, so might as well enjoy being the highest bravest version of you. Can you relate to this subject as well?
Do not let FEAR get in the way of you doing something AWESOME. . . . 4 months ago I bought a ticket to #PTBB with @angieleeshow and booked the flight to San Diego. I had been following Angie for years and had so much FOMO because I didn’t go to her event last year. I decided to be brave and just buy it and deciding to figure out the rest later. I was so freaking excited I could pee my pants. . . Now that it’s almost here I am FREAKING out. Fear is telling me – . . ✔️I am going to be the loner in a room full of women. ✔️I will be too shy to talk to anyone. ✔️I am so scared to travel alone. ✔️I should just cancel and stay at home. . . Well I have ✌choices. Let that fear cripple me OR I can change that feeling of fear to excitement. I can choose to . . 🌟Be excited and shove that fear out of the way. 🌟Put my best foot forward and talk to new people. 🌟Get out of my comfort zone and enjoy every moment of traveling. 🌟Make this the best DAMN weekend and soak up every moment. . . In less than 4 hours I will be on a plane to San Diego and I am choosing the latter. I am choosing to be BRAVE. . . . What is one thing you will do TODAY to put aside the fear and be BRAVE?🔥
Wanna know the secret to success? The secret is….. There is NO secret!! We are bombarded with all the knowledge or the next quick fix. Lose 20 pounds in 30 days. It’s all over television, magazines next to the checkout, the insta influencer that makes it look so easy. It’s a journey. It’s not about losing those last 10 pounds that you need to lose because magically you will feel much more confident in those jeans. It’s not about passing up that dessert because you are afraid your friends will judge you. It’s not about shaming yourself because you “fell off the wagon” for the 100th time over the weekend. Here are a few tangible steps to stick with it. ✔️Stop stepping on that scale every dang morning and making yourself feel bad because you had too many cookies or that chinese food. Start to ask yourself, why did I eat that and how did it make me feel afterwards? Not in the 5 minutes that you scarfed it down, but 10 minutes later. ✔️With so much info around nutrition bombarding our brains 1000x a day, it’s hard to even know where to start, so just start somewhere. Drink more water today. Write everything down that you ate even if it wasn’t the best option. It helps for you to be mindful of what is going into your body. Just start somewhere. ✔️You will fail. Just accept this cold, hard truth. No one’s journey looks linear or looks the same for any two people. There will be bumps in the road. Just embrace it. Accept it. Just please I beg you, don’t shame yourself for it. In your mind or maybe a journal, ask yourself what triggered me to go on a 1 week binge. What made me eat all those oreos even though it made me feel miserable? Nutrition isn’t easy. If it was we would all be walking around with six pack abs. But that’s not what I want for you. I want you to learn about yourself. What works with your body. Find habits that are sustainable in this crazy thing we call life. Embrace the body that the Lord has given you and just fine tune from there. Just start somewhere. What is one thing that you struggle with when it comes to nutrition? 📸 @cassieeenewell
WILL YOU TRUST ME WITH YOUR LIFE? -GOD @johnmaxwell I am almost 30 years old. Whew! It’s tough putting that out into the world. I had these grandiose plans to have a family, 2 kids, have a house in the country with a wrap around porch and a solid career with a great 401K savings. I am here to tell you 99% of those things HAVEN’T happened and I am okay with it. Wanna know why? As a kid, you were taught to graduate high school then get a degree, marry a nice fella, buy a house, have kids and then life would be great. But what if it didn’t happen in that order and what if that’s completely okay, because God had different plans and you failed to ask him along the way what he wanted. So as I sit here today reading this question, the Lord has slowly taught me piece by piece, experience by experience, thought by thought that I AM NOT in control, He is in control of EVERYTHING. So today, if you are in a season of struggle or doubting, I pray that you give it to the Lord or whomever higher being you believe in. And maybe, just maybe this is exactly where he wants you to be. 💞
You keep me on my toes @atlaw302 ! Couldn’t imagine doing life with anyone else. ❤️
In the famous words of @msrachelhollis “someone else’s opinion is none of your business.” So get the damn @starbucks ! Dance like there’s no tomorrow. Tell jokes and laugh at them. 🤪 sing in the shower and rock out in your car. 💃 use ALLLL the dry shampoo! 😆 Because girl you only have this one life to live, So enjoy every single second you have been blessed with. ❤️ Peep my stories to see what I got to drink today.
🌟🌟🌟TIPS AND TRICKS!! 🌟🌟 If you crave sweets at night like I do. #truth Try this hack. Baby spoon instead of regular spoon. One of my go to healthy desserts. Granola on the bottom. Cool whip just a few tablespoons. Add fruit and sugar free caramel. This is so heavenly and if you eat with a baby spoon it feels like you are getting so much more. What is your go to dessert? 👇🏻
Sunday’s are for stretching. 🐶
Adam: I’m going to go downstairs to get a drink. Me: hey will you get me some milk? Adam: I guess I’ll ask the bartender if they have milk.... This is what Friday night looks like for us in a new town. #noshame I get told all the time “I want to lose weight, but I can’t give up the sweets.” I am telling you. You don’t have to. Deprivation leads to binge eating and guilt behind it. Here’s three things that I focus on so I don’t end up in that cycle. 🌟 you don’t have to have the entire tub of cookie dough. Have a bite or two to satisfy the craving. 🌟 lose the mindset of cheating on your diet. Call it a “treat” not a cheat. 🌟one meal. One dessert is not going to make you fall off the wagon. Make the decision that this is a treat meal and you will get back at it at your next meal. Cheers to Friday night in bed before 8pm with cookie dough and milk. 😉#babygrandma
Off to explore the town with the hubby. First stop. Brunch😋 because you know your girl is all about a good breakfast. If you’ve been to St. Louis, what are a few of your favorite things to do?
Whew! First day of school in the books… wait how many days until Fall Break? You packed the kids’ lunches the night before. You had their outfits picked out. Backpacks. School supplies all ready to go. Bonus points because you got them to bed before 10. The alarm came early this morning. And the countdown was on…. Kids.. brush your teeth. Have you brushed your hair? Turn theeeee coffee pot on! I need coffee. Susie is arguing with Benny about how to tie his shoes. Clothes on. Check. Teeth brushed. Check. Lunches in backpacks. Check. Get in the car. Is everyone buckled? You race to the school, but traffic is dreadful. Why oh why is the drop off line so slow? Does Martha really need to say hello to allllllllll of the moms? Drop off kids and kiss them off and tell them to have a wonderful day. Whew mama! You did it!! Now that’s an accomplishment to get it done all before 8am AND your second cup of coffee. Now it’s time to check into the 9-5 job. But wait... I feel like I totally just conquered the day before 8:30. Isn’t that enough? I first off have to say.. I am not a momma yet, but this is how I totally imagine your morning going. So hats off to all the mama’s out there… you are freaking bada** woman. You juggle the whole world and still somehow get those insta worthy pics of the first day of school. #wonderwoman So tonight, before you go to bed. Give yourself some appreciation. Thank God for those two little munchkins that you can love and want to scream all within a two minute time span. You are enough. You are loved. You are absolutely changing the world.💯 If you totally rocked the first day of school with your kiddos, drop a few 💞💞 I want to cheer you on from the sidelines. 😘 📷 @cassieeenewell
Dear 21yr old Christina. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and can’t do. Don’t let that friend hold you back from who you are meant to be. Don’t worry about how you are going to pay for college. Stop worrying about finding the perfect man. Stop letting fear and worry dictate your life. Pray more and Worry less. Treat your body as the temple that God has given you. Stop letting the scale dictate how your day is going to be. Have fun with your friends, embrace and feed those friendships that are authentic and genuine. Stop using that Ben&Jerrys to console all of your problems. Cry it out. Don’t hold back the pain. Embrace it. Take a walk. Call a friend. Ask for help because you’ll need it. But more than anything, believe. Believe what the Lord has empowered you to do. Be quiet and listen. Know that he is ALWAYS near even in those times that you are questioning if you can make it through tomorrow. He is your truth. He is your light. He is your path. He always has a plan so much bigger than you can imagine. I love you! Christina💞 If you could write just a few things to your past self what would it say? 👇🏻
You’ll drop $200 at Target when you walked in to get milk.😟 But can’t seem to scrounge up $160 to invest in your health and fitness 🤷♀️ I hear ya girl. It can be scary. You may ask yourself why is this time going to be any different. You may ask your spouse and they roll their eyes because you have spend literally thousands $$ on the next big thing. And in the end you lose a few pounds. You stick with it for about 2 weeks and then one ice cream cone leads to chili cheese fries at Sonic and the binge cycle gets out of control. You step on the scale to find out you have not only gained that 10 pounds back, but 5 on top of that. You feel awful. You’re energy is low. You are ordering all the clothes online because nothing fits and going into the mall sounds like an awful idea. You are bloated. The cravings are uncontrollable. Through this program I have found freedom with my workouts. I have learned about foods that bless my body instead of make me swell up like a balloon. I have found a community of women that love on me so hard even when I fail. (Some I haven’t even met in person ) #instafriends I have found energy when i used to come home and take a nap before dinner. I have found confidence in the person I am becoming. So you are probably asking me.. why should I invest in another program? Hey sis... what if you don’t? Go fill out the application in my bio to be considered for our next bootcamp and we will see if this is a good fit. 😉
WILL I EVER LOSE THE WEIGHT? It’s a new week. You are excited to get started. You’ve bought all the groceries. Wrote your meal plan out. Prepped all the food. You even have snacks for the kids throughout the day. Monday rolls around. You did awesome. All the “right” foods. You even got your workout in. Here comes Wednesday and your girlfriend wants to go have lunch and catch up. You got the burger instead of the salad. Whoops! Girl!! We made it to Thursday. You have the guilt around that burger so you put in a double workout to burn the calories. Friday!! Heck to the yes!! It’s Friday. Celebrate. It’s date night so you might as well get the gelato. It’s the freakin weekend!! Can I get an amen? For breakfast you get the cinnamon roll at your favorite place. Kids have sports all day and you have nothing healthy packed. McDonald’s drive through seems acceptable. Sunday…. It’s a win if you get to church in time and by the time you get back home. You have nothing, literally nothing in the tank. Call Mazzio’s to get a pizza and cinnamon sticks because they are to die for. MONDAY… the dreaded Monday. Cue all the shame and guilt from the weekend. And the nasty cycle repeats week after week. Does this sound like you? I hear ya girl. Because this was me (minus the kids ) for soo soo long. I had all the best intentions. I wanted to make the change. I wanted to see sustainable results, but I had no idea how to break the mindless cycle. So here’s a few tips that I have found super helpful in my journey. 🌟Kick the diet mindset. I choose healthy options to benefit my body. I am mindful of every bite, lick and taste that goes into my mouth. 🌟Get the water instead of the sweet tea or diet coke. 🌟Veggies. Veggies. Veggies. Get the side salad. Get the steamed veggies instead of fries. Sub the buttered up bun for a lettuce wrap. These are just a few tips/tricks that we teach in our accountability community. What is your biggest struggle when it comes to nutrition?
I am taken back every single day and humbled by this man how he has become the leader of our home. I prayed for you for many years and what’s funny is you were right there under my nose, but God knew exactly what he was doing when he brought us together at a specific time in each other’s lived. ❤️ ladies! I ask of you more beg of you. DO NOT give up.... your knight in shining armor is out there and God is molding him to be the best husband for you. Never lose that fire to find him. 🔥#youareworthit #heisworkingevenifwedontseeit
#lowqualityhighintensityphoto I woke up and when my feet hit the floor and cringing pain shot up the back of my leg. I grabbed the wall because I couldn’t even put pressure on it. At first I thought it was just a leg cramp, so I tried to walk it out. That wasn’t helping. I started to panic, I had no clue what was going on. My mind started to race and then opened up the google search bar because Google knows all, right? Through my mindless searching, I came to find out that I had plantaar fasciitis. It was two days after I completed my half marathon and realized that my arch was collapsing. Ever since that happened, I have babied my foot. Held myself back because of everything that I had to do to recover my foot. Not pushed my body too hard... because I didn’t want to hurt it again. It’s funny how we do that.. Today in my workout there was a lot of jumping. I mean A LOT. But I decided to go for it, it was only 20 minutes, so might as well. I did the whole workout with only a few modifications. Now wait just a minute, I know there is a time and place for modifications, but I wanted to do this. I didn’t commit to 100 workouts to half ass it. And you wanna know what? I didn’t die. I was able to do it all. We are 6 days in.. out of 100 and I can feel it in my bones that this program is going to change my life from the inside out. These 100 days will pass either way. You can watch us or join us? Link is in my bio.😉
I’VE HAD ENOUGH. TODAY it stops. I will not let fear hold me back. I will stop second guessing every decision I make. I am done trying on 15 outfits to end up in leggings and a T-shirt. I will not hold back my light because it makes others uncomfortable. I will not be stuck in my comfort zone. I am done letting my success stand on anyone’s shoulders except my own. And you should, too. 100 days are going to pass either way. The next few months will happen whether you join us, or not. You’ve been saying you’ll start Monday for months now. You said you’ll try the gym because you have some Pinterest workout. And I hate to break it to you, but watching won’t get you those results. At the end of these 100 days, are you going to be proud you said yes? Or are you going to wish you did? Link is in my bio to get started. 💯🔥
I go all in for about 2-3 weeks and then I fall off the wagon. It’s so hard for me to stay consistent.🤷♀️ I would go all in for a few weeks and slowly start to drop off. Cue the guilt. Being ashamed. Cue the feeling of everyone judging because I would eat out or have the dessert. I never could find the healthy balance. I wanted to see the results, so I thought I had to be restrictive with my diet. I thought I had to do 2 a days. Hence killing myself in the gym and not seeing any results. Here are a few tangible steps that I have found to see long-lasting and sustainable results. 🌟Set goals. Whether it’s to lose 20 pounds or fit into that dress for the party. Set goals long-term, but also short term. What do you want to do this week to work towards those goals? Make them measurable. i.e. I will only eat out twice this week and drink 64oz of water. Then when you do hit those goals, celebrate! It doesn’t have to be food. Maybe it’s coffee with a friend. Maybe it’s getting a massage. But celebrate those small wins. 🌟Motivation. This word is way overused in my opinion. I show up every single day, even when I don’t want to. Even when I have every excuse not to. Even when I have had a crappy day at work. It’s not because I am motivated to show up for myself, but it’s because I have set goals and I am keeping that promise to myself. Everyday that I show up for myself, I am depositing a teeny bit of confidence in myself that then turns into bold braveness and motivates me to go harder. 🌟I preach this all the time, but I think it’s so true. Get out of that mindset of “all or nothing.” Implementing those small changes will ensure that this lifestyle is sustainable for not only months, but years to come. Because girl, I know you want that small win or to meet that goal right now, but don’t you want to keep hitting bigger goals in the months and years to come and to become the best version of you. Only a few days left to enroll in “I COMMIT TO 100” bootcamp. If this totally resonated with you and you are loving the tangible tips to implement right now. I urge you. No I am telling you. Go fill out the app in my bio to get all the deets. 💞🙌
When you wear the exact same pair of jeans and hope no one notices… It’s Monday and the weekend hangover is real… you go into your closet and swipe through a few things. Nope not that shirt. Nope that dress is hideous. Uhh those pants don’t fit. I guess I’ll wear these jeans because it’s the only ones that still button… well most of the time. I know this feeling all too well. I remember not having anything to wear. I felt ashamed, but not ashamed enough to go out and buy a new pair of jeans. I just didn’t feel like it. I didn’t feel like going to the mall and trying 20 pairs of jeans on and come to realize I had to size up not just one, but twice. It’s time to say enough is enough. I will not live the rest of my life like this. This week opens up enrollment for “I commit to 100” bootcamp. This bootcamp is for the woman that is feeling lost and ashamed. She has tried everything under the sun, but the weight just comes back. She wants to find something that is sustainable and that can fit into life. Life during birthday and summer season. She wants to be able to still have the ice cream and pizza. This is not for the woman that wants a quick fix. She wants to deprive herself of certain food groups to see that scale drop 5-10 pounds in the first week. This is not for the woman that is trying to fit into a certain size for her aunt suzy’s birthday. This is a group where we will commit to 100 days. 100 days where life will happen. 100 days where there will be setbacks, but we will push through together and see the sustainable, long-lasting results. Go fill out the link in my bio so you can stop the yo-yo up and down and lose that 20 pounds and keep it OFF 5 years from now.
It’s the end of the week, the pantry is empty and all that’s left in the fridge is maybe some milk and a few eggs and maybe if you’re lucky a half bottle of cupcake. (: What do you do? Pull up the grocery shopping app for Walmart and start clicking everything in site. Or maybe you don’t want to deal with it, so you just order a pizza. Or maybe you scrounge together the weirdest concoction because you are starving and way past the point of hangry. Ya feel me? I used to get so overwhelmed when it came to meal planning/grocery shopping. I didn’t know where to start. Or do I need organic? What’s the difference between GMO or gluten free? Are my eggs supposed to be cage free? You get the point.. Here are a few tips when it comes to meal planning so it isn’t so overwhelming. Next week I will talk about my tips for going through the grocery store. Take an inventory. What do you have in the pantry that you can use for meals so you are not buying everything and the kitchen sink. Build your meals from there. I like to start with dinners because I can see what sides or meat I have in the freezer. Look at your calendar. What events/dates do you have planned this week? Build your menu around this. No need to have 5 dinners when you will be gone 4 out of the 7 nights for dinner. Double it. When you are making dinner, double or maybe even triple the recipe. That way you can take it for lunch the next day. Meal planning doesn’t have to be overwhelming. You just need to have a few rules you stick to to get it done quick and it’s not taking your whole day. If you loved these tips, make sure to head over to my stories for the last two. 😉
What do you want to be when you grow up? Unlike the typical child that wants to be an astronaut or the president or maybe evan an inventor. I said I want to be an accountant. Yep, that’s right. A dang accountant. I am not quite sure why? LOL So we go throughout our journey called life. Find our lifelong friends in Elementary and say we will be friends forever. School years pass. And before we know it we are going to prom because it was the place to be. We play the sports. We graduate high school. Then we find the best college to go to because that’s what we are supposed to do, right? Meet new people. Get out of our comfort zone. Graduate with friends who you know will always be by your side. Move out. Find the best job (any job ) because you have lived 4 years through college and broke ain’t a joke. #rameneverynight Find the man of your dreams. Marry the man of your dreams. And then…… But no one ever talks about after you achieve all of those things, what’s next? Where do you go from there? I got to a point in my life and asked… is this it? It’s not that I wasn’t happy in everything that I achieved, the job that I found, the relationships that I had built, or marrying the man of my life. But I looked around and asked, is this it? Is this what the rest of my life is going to look like? Insert…. Coaching. I found community through the ups and downs. It gave me purpose. It gave me a small thing to look forward to every single day. It gave me accountability in my personal health and fitness when I could barely stick to a program for more than two weeks. I am here to tell you, if you are asking yourself the same thing, you are looking around and asking what did I work so hard for? It doesn’t have to be that way. It can look different. If you are interested in what I do as a coach, shoot me a DM or fill out the application in my bio. I would love to chat and see if this would be a good fit. Side note - I wanna hear what did you want to be when you grew up? Drop it below. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
What if I told you I was scared out of my mind before I got started as a coach? As kids, we were told to be careful honey, you don’t want to fall off the swing. Or when it was time to go to bed and you told your parents that there was definitely a monster in the closet and they said let me get out a night light for you. Or what about that time that your friend on the playground called you fat and your mom said that is not true, you are beautiful. Or what about the time you didn’t make the team and your mom made everything better by taking you out for your favorite ice cream. As women in this world, we are taught to play it small. Don’t get hurt. Don’t have too big of a personality because you don’t want to stand out. Don’t stand up for how you think because it could upset someone. Don’t do this or do that because you don’t know what aunt susie may think. When we are taught this from such a young age, it is basically ingrained in our chemistry and it has taken so long to work through this as a woman. But I want to give you a few tangible tips on how to bust through the fear in whatever you have your heart set on. 🌟Get clear on what you want. What are some tangible action steps and small wins that you can start today? 🌟Brave women aren’t just born confident, they have just failed more than you. So start something today. Take messy action. Messy action is better than no action. 🌟Sit down and think long and hard. Maybe it’s in your closet or out on the back porch. Somewhere where you can get some peace and quiet. Why do you want this so bad? Think hard. Where is this goal going to get you? Will it help you towards what you want for you and your family in the future? Fear. It holds us back from so many things. And there is something holding you back from pursuing what you want, whether it’s the rockin body or maybe it’s just an extra income so you aren’t living paycheck to paycheck or maybe you want to cut out that friendship that isn’t serving you. But I want to be here to tell you loud and clear, it’s time to take some messy action and get started. If this spoke to you, tag a friend that you know would love these tips.
Not in a million years I thought I would be here. . . I was the one looking in. Wanting the community, but didn’t know how to find. Wanted the support, but was scared to ask for help. Wanted the tribe, but wasn’t sure what that exactly was. I didn’t realize how much I needed it. How much I craved it. . . But when I found it, life made a complete 180. Girl, I urge you to get out of your comfort zone. Get out of your routine and look around. You will find your tribe in the least expected places.
What if we decided to not go all in and just change one or two things today? Would that be more sustainable? —— You’re probably reading this and asking yourself is she crazy? Of course, I have to go all in. It’s all or nothing baby. If I don’t dive into the deep end, then I won’t stick with it. Whether it be in work or nutrition or relationships. I have to go all in. —— But… what if we are setting ourselves up for failure? Hear me out. Over the past couple of years, I have slowly started waking up earlier and earlier. I didn’t wake up one day and just say, I am waking up at 4am. Hell to the no. I woke up at 6:00 for work, so I got up at 5:45 and took a little prayer time for myself. After about a month or so I started waking up at 5:30 and got a good 15-minute stretch and relaxation time. Slowly, over time I got up 5 minutes earlier and over the past years, I know get up at 3:45. —— It’s the small things that we switch up over time that are sustainable and can become a part of our lifestyle. So today, ask yourself what are 2-3 things that you want to switch up. Maybe, it’s drinking 32oz of water. Maybe it’s getting a load of laundry done before you go off to work. Maybe it’s taking a walk with the dogs before bed. —— Drop those 2-3 things that you are implementing throughout today. I can’t wait to cheer you on. —— 📷 @cassieeenewell
Love me a good, long weekend! Here’s to a relaxing 4 day weekend with family and friends. Let the fireworks begin.
Just a reminder today, you are exactly where the lord wants you in this moment. Feel it. Embrace it. Go through it. And get on your knees girl and pray harder. ❤️thank you @molly boatright for this cute shirt. Exactly what I needed.
This morning I broke down and started crying, like ugly crying during cycling class. Thankfully no one could hear me over the loud music. 🙊 I let myself feel the emotions that I had been bottling up for the past weeks and even months. I let it go. I let the anger. The frustration. The loneliness. The uneasiness. The pain. I let it all out with one ugly cry. These past few months have been hard to say the least. My emotions are all over the place and I am trying to find balance where life is and where I want to go. Do you ever feel like this? ❤️ Do you feel like the world just keeps spinning, but you are looking in from outside the fish bowl?👀 Do you have those strong emotions, but they are suppressed by putting on a smile and telling everyone you are good? That’s what we were taught to do, right? Put on a smile and let everyone know you are not just making it, but you are doing great. Post those cute pictures of your vacation. Find the right angle. The perfect lighting. God forbid we have a double chin in a picture, am I right?😬 I am talking to the woman that is struggling right now. For the woman that is in a funk and asking herself, is this it? For the woman that just wants more, but doesn’t know what more is? I am here to tell you, you cannot be perfect. The only perfect one is our Lord and Savior. But you can, push. Push when it gets hard. Embrace those feelings. Let out an ugly cry. Pump up some Taylor Swift and dance it out. But girl, do not give up. Do not live your life on auto-pilot because we were made for so much more. So together, let’s embrace this journey and grow together. Who’s with me?🙌
Are you sick and tired of going through each summer and feeling uncomfortable in those shorts? What about that swimsuit that you dread putting on? Your friend asks you to go to the lake or come to a get together at the house and you cringe. You think of every option not to go because you know you will have to put that dreaded swimsuit on. So you go out and find the next best thing. 10 pounds in 2 weeks?! Yes! That’s exactly what I need. So you go all in for about 3 days, but then the weekend rolls around and you have a great here and there. It’s okay you’ll just restart Monday. And then you have the best intentions and then you get to the office Monday morning. Guess what’s in the break room? Fresh Krispy Kreme donuts and they are still warm. 🤤 So you tell yourself tomorrow and tomorrow never comes because you have done this cycle over and over you have lost count. All you want is something sustainable and to see the results, but it doesn’t consist of chicken and broccoli where you are feeling deprived. If you said girl... you just spoke my language. That’s been my life.... then I want to talk to you. If this didn’t resonate with you, this fit camp is probably not for you. BUT if you are like yes, yes I need the accountability and a coach to give me some tough love. If you need this change and want it so bad you can feel it in your core, then I encourage you to comment below ❤️❤️❤️ or fill out the link in my bio and I’ll reach out to you if I feel like this is a good fit.
Throwing it back to when this little man was small enough to hold. Oh @atlaw302 I think we may need another. ❤️
