Today is a day for much needed rest. ....
I was just off this week. With nutrition, water, sleep.... My body began breaking down and I was having all of these crazy thoughts that just didn’t make sense and then panic and anxiety would set in.
Then I messaged a sweet friend who told me that this is the prime time for the enemy to sneak in and control our lives.
I REFUSE to be CONSUMED by *Negativity
* Self Doubt
* Things I cannot control. ....
This is MY life And by the shield of my savior I will NOT let my life be anything but the best.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. “Ephesians 6:10-11
First things first.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Faith is a priority and should be the lead in our everyday way of living and being. Faith is the precursor and the prerequisite for all things we dream, hope and aspire for.
Faith it and make it!
For if He is with us. Nothing and no one can be against us.
Have a great Faith Sunday!

When God refused to allow you to look like what you’ve been through 🙌🏽 @__jalisalashawn and I are inviting you to join us January 12 for @_aqueenwithpurpose "The Power to Conquer Vision Board Workshop & Brunch"
Start the new year developing yours goals, bringing forth your vision, enjoy an excellent brunch and network with like-minded goal driven women aspiring for change. 🔗 to purchase tickets in @__jalisalashawn bio.
I came across a quote recently that I feel is perfect for my life right now... “Some days she has no idea how she’ll do it. But every single day, it still gets done.”
We may not always understand. But if we trust the process, believe in ourselves and allow God to direct our footsteps, it will all happen according to His perfect will.💓
Never IMAGINED that I could feel utterly exhausted and still have my heart completely filled and bursting with love.
We feel it all the time though right mamas?
I believe that’s what makes our lives beautiful in its own unique way. We’ve all experienced the sleepless nights, sick babies, we’ve struggled and felt a little loss. And because of those feelings we can hold on to the feeling to be filled again. We enjoy the chaos, the laughter and humor with our tribe all the more.
There is always beauty to be found and I’m reminding myself to look for it every day. 💛Be kind to yourself.
Super chill weekend here at the McCreery house, besides a birthday party. What about you?

Of all the pictures I took, I had to post this, because the rest I was somehow giving you the bird 🐦 and that’s not the message I wanna send so I’ll break all the rules and post the grainy picture. But at least you won’t assume I was sending some secret message 🤣🤣 #OnlyLove 💝
Hey mamas, are you frustrated with the idea that you’ll never have you back, that you have no time to do your makeup, or hair. Or get outta your sweater and leggings?? That’s a mindset I’d like to give the bird. 🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦 Girlfriend, can I help you with the makeup part? Trust me I have the easiest application and YOU will eventually get the rest to fall in line. Besides hang out with me a little more.... and your confidence will be back in NO time! #mindOVERmatter#FaithOVERfear#FaithIt#youCAN#youareWORTHY#loved#sahm#momlife#makeup#confidence#beauty#smile#getdressed#try#instagood#inspire
These candy wrappers were acquired while I listened to a message from my coach asking if we should host a nutrition reset group after the holidays.🙈🤣
Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?🤷🏼♀️🤔
Needless to say, stay tuned for the details!👏🙌
And...cue #alanismorissette 🎵🎶
To be honest.
It use to be a real struggle working out when they were awake, but because they understand this is super important to me, they stay out of the way, and the motivate me to push even harder.
So if you tell yourself you can’t take care of yourself because your kids are insane, do it anyways because they will learn it’s important and they will join in with you! 💜⚡️
“Start children off the way they should go, and even they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
So about last night 🙌🏾 • Preached my first Sermon 😊
Words can’t explain the feeling of 100% giving yourself to God, of being All in for the purpose and destiny He has for your life. 2018 has been the biggest growth year in my life. God is always on time!! I am so thankful to my family and circle of friends who have supported me through everything. Thank you to my church home whom I love so much @newseasonsacramento and thank you to my pastor/spiritual father @pastorsamuelrodriguez for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to do what I was born to do 💯 #AnswerTheCall#PreacherManPreacherManYeaThatsMe#FaithIT#OnlyTheBeginning#GodsPromise
3 years ago I decided to show up for myself. Since I was no longer attached the body that carried our miracle child, lost 3 angels and needed to find light in my life. 3 years ago when I decided that fear and failure was no longer going to control my lifestyle and keep our family from moving forward.
3 years of busting through self limiting beliefs, hurts and habits that no longer served me. 3 years of showing women what it feels like to be their best even when I was on my own personal journey, 3 years of showing my son that mom can do hard things and that she’s not afraid to go for it.
3 years ago I had no idea where this journey would lead but that the time was going to pass by— WHY would I not want to change my path to recover and LIVE a life filled with happiness as I was created to. SWIPE>
6 years trying with losses
Overwhelmed by hurts, habits and hang ups
5 years after
Gained 50 lbs
Lost 55lbs with more muscle than ever
No strict meal plans
No long hours at the gym
With a strong community of women to support me daily
At home workouts that began with my spirited 1 year old
Easy to follow family friendly recipes
Embracing my path
Accepting responsibility for my actions
Learned to love my body at each stage I was in
Daily personal development
Daily dense nutrition
Building a successful business around mom pockets of time.
Ladies- You are strong, powerful, purposeful women who make a difference in this world.
Here’s to all the ladies who are learning to love themselves in our fun loving- crazy lives.
YOU GOT THIS! You are made for more. YOU are worth it! Ready to change your story? I’ve got your back! Let’s chat.
Here’s to 3 years of purpose.
Love the girl in the mirror.
We all have B•I•G DrEaMS💭💫... but the difference lies here — some WAIT & WISH for change, while others TAKE RISKS & are willing to face their fears head on in order to reach them. .
Either way, it’s scary. But you have the opportunity to impact your future right now depending on which path you take. #thechoiceisyours#followyourdream
So grateful for coworkers who make me laugh + my fitfam that keeps me accountable + the energy I get from this drinky-drank ⚡️
32 weeks pregnant & this mama can’t wait for a day off her feet all while diving into the work she LOVES #thatcoachlife#dreamcareer 🖤

Alright y’all. ....
It’s no secret there’s a brand new program being released this April from one of our amazing trainers.
Fortunately there is early access for those who are like me and don’t want to wait for those killer results.
6 days a week
20 minutes a day.
Now let me talk to those “I have no timers” a minute. This program was designed just for YOU!
All my mommas, ladies, ladies, laidieeees, who doesn’t want a hot momma bod for the summer? Y’all can get to steppin’ during nap time, put the workout on your phone and still watch your shows during nap time. Literally no brainer!
So y’all can go ahead and wait, or you can join my team and I in January and become TRANSFORMED for summer.
Also, cool part, those who commit to helping others and sign up with me can actually have full access to the trainer himself in his exclusive test group.
Why are you hesitating, go message me now to get your step, and lock in your spot on my team and this group!
Opportunity of a lifetime people.
As always, Our Lord and Our Lady have perfect timing. Our Lady's words, which we recall today, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, have provided great comfort to me in the past and they still do now. (In relation to my previous post) 😭❤️🙏🏻
"Listen and let it penetrate your heart…do not be troubled or weighed down with grief. Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain. Am I not here who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not your fountain of life? Are you not in the folds of my mantle? In the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else you need?” (Our Lady’s words to her servant Juan Diego.)❤️
We believe that Our Lady of Guadalupe meant for us to have Baby Tommy. When my OB gave us his EDD, we counted back and saw that he was most likely conceived a little while after the renewal of my Marian Consecration on Dec 12 last year. So, Mama Mary, Our Lady of Guadalupe, we continue to surrender Tommy's development to your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Through your intercession, may he grow to be Jesus's servant.💙
~ What Can Change ... In Almost a Decade ~ .
Your baby may be Bigger then You ...
In Many ways Wiser ... May have Grown into the Very Best of You Combined with themself ... Totally Unique but Still .. Sometimes ... So Reminiscent of you ... .
For us ....
Even So So Much More has Changed.
Sometimes we have to be what feels like , Worlds 🌎apart ...
But always Together in Heart ❤️ .
Sometimes .... like today ... we can only be together by phone ☎️ in Huge .. Pivotal Moments ...
And it’s hard not to cry 😢 but we both Choose to Look Up ... instead of just ahead ... or at ourselves or situations .. we Look Up and we choose to see the Best of Whatever We are Facing ... we choose to Love what we Have instead of focusing on what we don’t. .
Since This first “before” photo was taken ... about 8 moves have taken place for me , 6 for her.
Several different schools. .
A Totally New Life for Both of us.
No longer a family in one home ... or married parents for this precious girl .... but Two Parents who Love Her with passion and pursuit. .
One thing has not changed.
Gods love and provision for each of us.
He never changes.
His love never falters. .

What are you confessing or believing for in 2019 — THINK BIG, believe in your heart and DECLARE IT! 📣⚔️🛡
¿Qué estás confesando o que estás creyendo para el 2019? ¡PIENSA EN GRANDE, cree en tu corazón y DECLÁRALO! 📣⚔️🛡 ———————————Escrito está: “¡Despeja mucho terreno para tus tiendas!
Haz tus carpas grandes. ¡Expándete! ¡Piensa en grande!
Usa un montón de cuerda, entierre las clavijas de la tienda bien profundo. Vas a necesitar mucho espacio para tu familia que crece.
Vas a apoderarte de naciones enteras; vas a reasentar ciudades abandonadas
No tengas miedo, no te vas a quedar avergonzado. No te detengas, no te quedarás corto.
Isaías 54: 1-6 The Msg
Looking at the pic on the left was the day I decided enough was e-freakin-NOUGH.
I broke down and started crying. & they were not happy tears.
Not because I wasn't madly in love with every single human & my glamourous Great Gatsby wedding depicted in the photos.
I wholeheartedly was.
But I wasn't in love with MYSELF.
I hardly even recognized myself.
I had been in denial about how much weight I had put on over the past 2 years.
I might've had everyone else fooled.
But I wasn't TRULY comfortable in my OWN BODY.
It was the most demoralizing & SCARY feeling I have ever experienced.
I didn't want to admit I had a broken relationship with food and my body.
Because that would be to admit defeat or failure.
I had all these stories surrounding what hiring a coach would look like (that were not even true). I was CHOKING on my own excuses.
My stubborn refusal to admit there was an ISSUE & take the necessary action was suffocating me.
It didn't matter HOW i had gotten there.
It didn't matter that I "knew better" (especially as a NURSE/health care PROVIDER)
I NEEDED to COMMIT to making a change.
NO MATTER WHAT it took, I was going to achieve my dream body and
NEVER, EVER feel that way again. & once i COMMITTED,
i put in the action.
I started DOING.
no matter how i FELT.
i got the accountability & support I needed. & the weight literally FELL off.
When I had the courage to confront myself
& COMMIT to stepping into my identity,
I had all these epiphanies.
I was not embracing with my HEART & SOUL what I KNEW in my HEAD.
that I am God's MASTERPIECE, made in His image. I am worthy & capable of living in my DREAM BODY.
If you're there now, you're not alone.
If you're ALMOST there, and anxiously waiting for something awful to happen like not feeling sexy & confident in your wedding dress OR way more detrimental: an irreversible disease diagnosis like diabetes, Etc.
for you to actually take your HEALTH & fitness journey SERIOUSLY, TAKE THE LEAP & message me 🔥
can’t wait to hear from you, bella 🖤#transformationtuesday
