This simple certification may not be a big deal to some people, but to me, it symbolizes so much. 🙌🏼 First off, this little piece of paper means I can finally move onto the exam ✏️ portion of the course I have been working on for MONTHS. Fingers crossed 🤞🏼 that in approximately O•N•E MONTH I will be a certified Healthy Eating & Weight Loss coach. Wish me luck ✨! Not to mention, secondly, this little beauty also paves the way to beginning my Personal Training Certification 💪🏽adventure! And thirdly , and likely most importantly, this document signifies how far I have come over the last couple of years 🙌🏼. Let me tell you a story. When I was in high school, I refrained from every little activity possible where all eyes 👀 would be on me. I hated talking 💬 in front of my class, and I even disliked taking part in class discussions, due to a fear of blurting out the wrong 🙅🏻♀️ answer. I basically wanted to crawl under a rock and stay there 🤦🏻♀️. But today, I noticed just how much I have grown. I wasn’t afraid to speak up, I wasn’t afraid to pretend to be one of the casualties for demonstration, AND I wasn’t afraid to talk to my class mates. I even had lunch 🥗 with one of them. WHO AM I?! I almost wish I could go back to high school and relive those years to my utmost potential... almost 😜. People say your high school years are the best years of your life... HA 😂! Yeah, I can honestly tell you that’s not the case for everyone. 👉🏼 I’m living proof that you can change your life, you can change who you are and you have the ability to become anyone and anything you want to be. What changed? I found love 💕 for myself. I gave up wanting everyone to like me, I gave up wanting to be perfect and I realized that I AM ENOUGH just the way that I am. I strongly believe that self love and self acceptance is the key 🔑 to a happy life. So here’s to leaving excuses and fear in the past and choosing determination and happiness instead. I FREAKIN’ GOT THIS [fist pound 👊🏽]!
Wait..what? I just saw a post and met fitsister @fitgirl_honeylovene at a wedding!!!! The world is so small!! Love this community! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾❤❤

There are no restrictions in this house. Giving what your body craves has a place in balanced eating.
I've been experimenting to find the best gluten free flour ratio that doesn't taste or weigh like a brick. These GF pancakes are fluffy and is a dream when paired with lemon curd! I'll follow up with the recipe in a bit.
It may be 8 PM, but my workout is finally DONE! 👊🏼 Week 3, Day 1✖️
That was the toughest workout YET; I simultaneously loved + hated every second of it.
I really had to focus on shifting my mindset from “that’s good enough” to “push harder!” + “keep going!”
Mindset is really everything 🙌🏼 If you can shift your mindset, you can shift your life.
