QUIT letting who you were talk you out of who you're becoming.
I hear so often:
Can you tell me more about what you're doing?
Can you share more information with me?
I'm interested in losing weight.
I'm tying all my confidence to a number.
I want to do this, I just can't right now.
I've heard it all.
That used to come from me, too.
I can tell you that it wasn't helping me get started.
I can tell you that I was aware of what I wanted, but didn't make the effort to change.
I WAS ALLOWING my current self to make decisions for the FUTURE SELF I craved.
That current self was burnt out, stressed, low on energy, hated fitness, lived off of starbucks and jimmy johns, binged watched so much TV, lived on the couch, etc.
Why on earth would I let that mindset guide me?
Because, let's be real.
My excuses were a lot "safer".
It fueled my exhaustion, negative mindset, and body bashing.
I WAS DONE WITH THAT.
I found a lifestyle that FIT into my schedule.
It changed my whole life.
I'm wanting to help 10 women start a journey that changed my whole life.

She changed you could see it in her eyes, feel it in her touch, and hear it in her tone. Simply because she let go of what life was suppose to look like and celebrated it for everything it is. She’s not the same and she’s never coming back. Thank you for all the Birthday wishes the love I received today made it one I won’t forget! Just a very few memories from this past year. #neverfeltsoalive#club29#finewine#betterwithage#itsmybirthday#thankyou#blessed
I realized I hadn’t changed by bag and was craving my medium satchel. I bought this bag used and I love love love its history. That’s the beauty of leather, it ages and adds stories the longer you carry it. The previous owner put her initials and states she’d traveled to under the flap. I love the added character and that this bag is floppy and worn in. #saddlebackleather#fullgrainleather#leatherlover#history#provenance#betterwithage
I started my business when I was a busy working professional.
Now, my husband and I left our jobs to work our business full time.
How did we do it?
How did we do this before turning 30?
I was 26 when I left teaching.
Erik was 28 when he left teaching.
Let me tell you.
Time is the biggest excuse I gave for not making time for self-care.
However, I still made time to crash on the couch or in my bed watching TV shows.
It was my escape because I was so emotionally, mentally drained from each work day.
So, I found workouts that were time efficient and had a ton of variety that I could do ANYWHERE. Including my classroom.
I had a nutrition plan that took the guessing out and was extremely effective for someone like me-- who was always on the go. It beat going to Starbucks every morning and gave me the proper fuel for the day.
I personally needed easy meals on the go and no-excuse workouts.
I lost 35 pounds.
I toned up.
I gained energy.
And I built a business off of self-care.
This was from the work I put in-- not the work I wish I could do.
I just did it.
Because I had a plan that fit into my schedule and life.
I noticed a huge difference in the way I slept and took away my exhaustion from the day.
I also replaced Netflix with working my business for 1-2 hours. This made all the difference and compounded over time.
Here I am.
Working from home.
Working hard, but enjoying it so much.
This journey has giving me flexibility and allows me to have more time doing what I want with those I want.
I love mentoring women who are busy working professionals that crave more energy, want to feel fit, and would love having the choice of how they spend their time and what's on their plate.

Then, one day Cecile took her life back and created ONE serum that did it ALL: Skin Harmony Estriol Face Serum. It was a labor of love, a work of revolutionary science and is now her gift to women everywhere wishing for more youthful looking skin! 💆🏻♀️💆🏼♀️💆🏾♀️

Ginger & Turmeric
That's what my Gastroenterology doctor told me to use whenever I have an IBS flare -- and it works!
Ginger is found in many Asian cuisines, but turmeric is a little more difficult to find a way to use. My husband makes this ginger, turmeric, honey, lemon tea that always hits the spot.
Do you know of any other ways to use turmeric?
I'm definitely open to learning 😁
Всем доброго утра и исполнения мечт!))
Заставить себя заниматься легко, только надо решить, зачем тебе это. Увидеть цель, понять, что за один день-неделю-месяц этого не достигнуть. Быстрый результат - стресс для организма, быстрая потеря этого результата, а может и проблемы со здоровьем и возвращение потерянных килограммов, а может и с прибавкой веса... Постепенно и планомерно, день за днём по маленькому шагу, изменение привычек не произойдет быстро. И сколько бы не прошло времени с начала высших тренировок, все равно найдутся люди, которые спросят "зачем ты это делаешь?" Затем, что мне это нравится, мне так комфортно, и у меня есть цель.
Сколько интересного и полезного я узнала за это время! Сколько интересных людей встретила! Оно того стОит!
Это упражнение можно делать и без TRX, но на мой взгляд так сложнее, и больше мышц задействовано. Здорово!

On this #throwbackthursday I want to talk about confidence. Something I have severely lacked for as long as I can remember, but NO MORE 🙅 from 8 years ago to now, I have transformed! 💃
Last weekend, I put on this outfit and thought "what am I thinking?!" Then as quick as it came in I pushed it out 👊 (it helps that the hubby is always so complimentary 😉😘)
I am 30 years old and I can honestly say this is the happiest I have ever been ❤ I'd like to think we can get better with age but we HAVE to take care of ourselves 💪
