“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” -E.E. Cummings.
See this girl right here? Believe it or not, she wasn’t always this confident. 😩 Growing up, I was kind of nerdy (band geek), didn’t think I was attractive, wore Jnco Jeans (anyone remember those), tried so hard to fit it, and was kind of all over the place lol. I wore blue eye shadow to match my blue outfit (anyone else do that 🙈), was always very social and great at making friends, but felt like they weren’t always there to stay. I was the good church girl who was still navigating the adventures of who the heck am I? Man o man, have times changed. .
I am still a work in progress, but I am loving the woman I am becoming today! I’ve learned how to wear my confidence, I am beautiful, talented, strong, funny, sometimes weird, have dealt with my fair share of battles, but that hasn’t stopped me from chasing my dreams! 🤩 I am living my best life in New York City and have created this life for myself. 😍 I’ve busted my ass for everything I have today and it hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been so worth it! I’m grateful for everything showing up in my life, I’ve chosen to be happy exactly where I am right now, instead of waiting for things to show up to be happy. Though some days I do have to remind myself that when I’m having a “down in the dumps day”. 😩 PLUS this has literally been the best year career wise for me and we still have 2 months left! Say WHAT? I’m excited to go out with a bang, looking forward to what the future brings. Remember you hold the key to what you want. Stop waiting around for things to happen. You are enough, you can do anything you set your mind to! 📷: @djtakespictures
Both men and women hate the ‘bra bulge’ or ‘bra roll’ fat that can develop with weight gain or fluctuations as well as age. Do you know what treatment options are available to tone up this pesky area? A variety of non-invasive options like #Zeltiq @Coolsculpting, @BTLAesthetics #Vanquish and injectable fat-dissolving medications like #Kybella have all proven to be successful in a series of treatments for many of my patients who want non-surgical options. However, if you want a significant change, and skin tightening at the same time, liposuction is still the gold standard of treatment for this area. In traditional liposuction techniques, it is unfortunately common for surgeons to neglect the upper back and armpit area. By hiding the liposuction cannula entrance points in the armpit, we can minimize scars, making it virtually undetectable. I’m able to move the cannula with precision in this area to contour the breast/chest, arms, and upper back all at the same time. My signature approach to achieving the best results is follow fat removal with internal skin tightening like @inmodeaesthetics #BodyTite or @renuvion helium plasma radiofrequency to tighten and lift the tissue at the same time.

Everyone loves strong, sexy arms & our one-weight lifts will give you that and more. One weight lifts are designed to tone and define the back of your shoulder, but the benefits don't stop there. One weight lifts also lengthen the front of the shoulder that was just worked with the previous exercises. It requires that the back muscles and abdominals hold the torso in an almost horizontal position while also strengthening the front quad muscles. #armenvy#michelleobamaarms
I already miss summer😢
This morning I took a water exercise class at the temporary outdoor pool (Olympic trials will be at the new indoor pool.once it's finished!). Here's what I noticed:
▪I'm horribly out of shape. Old ladies were lapping me
▪I need to up my bathing suit game
▪I've taken water aerobics classes in Ventura County, Ca., Nevada, Arizona and Japan and this is the first class where I've ever seen a Black person. It's weird how much it stood out, I never thought about before today
I love my city so much
Today was the last day of my 8 week workout program! Although it took me about 8.5 weeks, I finished strong and didn’t quit on myself! This hasn’t been my strongest suit! In general, I was such a great starter at things but then would fizzle out and eventually quit. Not this time!! I had to prove myself wrong and it feels SO good!
So what’s next you may ask?! I’ve said before my health & fitness is a journey, not a destination. So while I’ll continue working out, I’m ready to conquer my next weak area: nutrition! I’ve realized I can no longer be double minded and unstable. If I’m actively working out, then I actively need to make better food choices.
Do you struggle with nutrition like me? If so I’m looking for accountability and would love to have you conquer these struggles with me! Who’s in?!
