How did I do it? What did I do? The answer is...I am doing whatever it takes. Willpower, determination and dedication got me here. 2 shakes a day, meal prepping, not giving up on myself. Just a commitment to myself and a promise to make it fun along the way.
I modified foods that I loved, I cut out proceed crap (as much as could), I drank water even when it felt like I couldn't stomach anymore, I went to the gym when I was feeling it, but I also cried myself to the gym when I needed to, I asked for substitutions, I am making time, I modified exercises, I spoke positively to myself, I went to bed earlier. I didn't do anything special-- I just decided that it was time to put ME first. It is hard! Your life will change, your priorities will change, and you'll need to give up some things in the beginning to ensure you form good habits.
It takes time but I can PROMISE you--your health is ALWAYS worth it. Decide to do it for YOU. And do whatever it takes. I know I am, I owe it to myself, I owe it to my husband and son! Today is day 80 on my journey and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I am seeing my body transform. If I can do it with a 4 month old baby, a full time job, a house, a husband, a business and a life; I know you can do it. The hardest part is just starting. I would love to help you on your journey. Message me!
As a lot of you guys know, I’ve been going through a lot over the last year. I got fired/evicted from the horse rescue I was living at (without a real reason), I lost myself (and my money) in a lot of drinking and partying, slowly fell apart in a professional situation that was not a good fit for me, and struggled with a relationship that was doomed to fail because of his addictions and lies. I recently quit that corporate job and pressed charges on my ex after he stole my car without a license, got trashed and left drug paraphernalia in my car and lied about all of it—a lot of you have gotten in touch with me and expressed that you think I’m so strong. While I am SO thankful and I LOVE all the love I’ve gotten from everyone, I’d be lying if I said I always felt like that strong, positive person you guys see. I get stuck in a dark place in my mind, and I’ve wrestled with terrible thoughts. I’m very grateful for my support system, but that support is only there because I’ve reached out and spoken out, and it’s been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I love you all and you guys remind me that I’m Wonder Woman, and I’m capable of saving myself and that my ideals are absolutely in reach. You guys inspire me every day; thank you for the strength you’ve lent me when I’ve needed a reboot ❤️ #endthestigma#stopsuicide#bethevoice#suicideprevention#mentalhealthawareness#depression#anxiety#toxicrelationships#startingover#freshstart#selflove#yourvibeattractsyourtribe#love#success#revolutionary
GUESS WHOS BACK!
Okay so a break from this did me good to regroup with myself and figure out a few things! 😬 one of them things being how mean I can be to myself! Especially towards my tummy! I’ve come such a long way and I need to stop being hard on myself and actually stop and appreciate and love who I am! We all need to be a little selfish sometimes and just say f*#k it yeno what, I like how I look and that’s that! 🤩 and today I am declaring that I love who I am and how I look! I have goals yes, but I also have had a goal to reach this point and I have! And that needs to be noted too!!! 🙈
Training has been amazing when I get to train! I changed job to an office job which poses a lot more mentally challenging and the times are a bit tricky... it’s a learning process but will benefit me in a few months time when I get my feet fully in the door of the fitness industry! 😁😁🙊🙊 for now I’m doing what I can to be able to afford my courses, train and learn new skills every day😍 my main training is crossfit but I’m trying to add in more stretching every day and mobility is a key thing I want to improve on (posts coming tomorrow on these) 🙌🏻 so yeah, I’m back and I’m ready to kick more ass than before 😏 🙌🏻 #fitness#fitnessmotivation#fitnessjourney#fitnesslife#fitfam#irishfitfam#irishgirl#crossfit#bodypositive#tummylove#me#selflove#goals#dreams#progress#fitnessinstructor#personaltrainer#kettlebellinstructor#irishfitness#health#llifestylechange#positivity#likeforlike#followforfollow#kicksss
So much focus is placed on LOSING Weight, Fat, This Bit, That Bit!
Keeping our focus on LOSING , keeps our energy on a negative, on what we don’t want, on the parts that we are dislike about ourselves.
This in turn keeps our energy on struggle, on punishment and the problem, only perpetuating the cycle of a constant disapproval of ourselves, in turn creating things to disapprove of- see the cycle?
Instead FOCUS on Health, Strength, Flexibility, Mobility, Confidence, Energy and many more of the incredible benefits our body gives us and what nurturing and nourishing our body does for us.
This simple focus shift changes everything!

I’m a huge kombucha fan but have never tried Trader Joe’s before. Kombucha has a ton of health benefits including detoxification, improving joint health, digestion and gut health, as well as boosts the immune system! •
What is your favorite kind of kombucha?!
Empowerment is NOT FUCKING EASY.
Boundaries are not easy.
“No” and “Goodbye” are not easy.
These don’t “feel good” in the moment.
They feel terrifying.
What feels good in the moment?
To vices, disempowering men, playing small, self-sabotage, shitty self talk.
Remaining stuck in cycles and patterns of what your lower self has always done and always known.
But in order to access what your Soul and High Self TRULY desires—
Personal freedom and WHOLENESS.✨
You must be willing to give up what you want in the moment, resist the urge to give in, and the pull to what is comfortable.
All too often you get addicted to your “shit”.
Your patterned behavior.
But the more you learn to hold your boundaries, break the cycle, and establish your worth— the more you will form new patterns and ingrain a new identity.🦋
The more you will exist within your personal power.
Empowerment is built in small moments—
Not in moving mountains.
It is built in simple shifts.
In brutal honesty.
In discernment and choice.
It may not feel good— but the reward is YOU owning your worth. And how fucking worth it is that?
How do you choose to empower yourself beautiful being? Will you continue to play out old stories and cycles, leading you to the same results? Or will you choose to SHIFT yourself, and step into your wholeness?

Can I just leave this here? Can you just read between the lines? I’m having one of those days where I’m weepy because compliance prevents me saying what I want to say and some days this just makes me sad.⠀
Here is what I know, and have seen firsthand.⠀
Frankincense is a powerful stimulator of the immune system and at mounting an appropriate immune response.⠀
A fever is one of the ways at which the body mounts an effective immune response in order to kill pathogens.⠀
It’s no secret that using antipyretics not only inhibits this response, they also drive infection deeper into the body and prolong illness.⠀
Frankincense has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and provide oxygen to the brain. ⠀
Frankincense assists the healthy function of cells.⠀
There have been more studies done on Frankincense than that for any drug.⠀
It is not just an oil strictly for the immune system. Frankincense is the most powerful oil you can have at your fingertips for total mind-body wellness. ⠀
Use it daily, back of neck, bottoms of feet, 2 drops under tongue, over the heart. Use it even more when you (or healthcare professionals) don’t know what else to do.⠀
And lastly, trust only dōTERRA. It has been proven that no other company comes close to providing essential oils with the level of efficacy that dōTERRA does.⠀
#AllLivesMatter in action: The #USA and #Turkey got into a diplomatic row when Turkey arrested American evangelical pastor ⛪ #AndrewBrunson during a purge following a coup attempt two years ago. Brunson was accused of terrorism for converting PKK members to evangelical Christianity (Turkey considers the group a terrorist org). Many Western news outlets covered Brunson's imprisonment and house arrest. #Trump walked away from negotiations and full out sanctioned Turkey to get Brunson back. Senators wrote Turkey threatening letters of his behalf. ⠀
However, the 20 Turkish-Americans being held by Turkey including the #NASA engineer Serkan Golge?🤔 Not even part of the negotiations. So why was did the USA leave a NASA engineer behind and pull out all the stops for an evangelical pastor? He's a white guy from the same evangelical denomination as Mike Pompeo- two important constituencies for the Trump Administration. Muslims...not so much.
But all lives matter, right, bro? #wokearoundtheworld
• CRÈME ‘DAY’ LE CRÉME • the final step in the MBL Sequence is crucial for both dry and oily skin. We need to lock all the goodness in, protect from the outside nastiest and of course give ourselves a little facial massage (cause why not 🤷🏼♀️).
Our skin needs to be moisturised daily; the all-natural properties work behind the scenes to balance out your oil production, no matter what type of skin. Whether
your goal is to simply keep your skin looking fresh, reduce redness, uplift any dullness or ease inflammations… a little bit of love (and cream) can go a long way —.
