Happy Transformation Tuesday! On the left, I had no self esteem. I hid behind my child in pictures. My shoulders slumped at the thought of being photographed. Events made me anxious because I had an unhealthy relationship with food.
On the right, I am comfortable in my skin. I was happy to be photographed with my family, without the hiding and slumping. I had a healthy relationship with food where I knew I could indulge in my son’s birthday cake and be fine because I’d still have healthy sides. I’d also eat clean most of the time and I’d stick to my workouts.
How did I make this change? A community of awesome, like minded women who held me accountable to my goals. Women I could tell my struggles and get advice. Want in on our next accountability group? Drop a comment, DM me, or click the nifty link in my bio. I can’t wait to connect with you!
Ahhhh. That stretch felt so good after working my chest and back! I’m so pumped to be entering shred week before Thanksgiving. I took this weekend to refocus my goals. I don’t miss my workouts, so I really want to dial into my nutrition. I have my cheat days planned out for the next two weeks (Thanksgiving is next week’s day) AND my meal plans done. I’ve never planned out TWO full weeks but I am throwing out ALL excuses. I came to SLAY! Who’s ready for Thanksgiving?!
They didn’t have women’s snowpants at the store, but I really needed a pair to play with Connor this winter. So I bought the smallest size I could find in the men’s department. I had to pull the adjustable strap all the way across the front and strap it to the other side, but it works! I’m sure my husband loves that we will have matching snowpants. Plus, I look like such a catch! 😂🤣
I had plenty of reasons not to push play this morning.
Aunt Flow came to visit.
I just don’t want to.
But I got up, reminded myself how much better I’d feel after a good workout, drank my pre workout (got super jazzed, see story), and pressed play. I feel SOOO much better. While I have many reasons to workout, just that ONE reason of feeling better was enough to overcome all the reasons not to workout this morning. If you’re struggling, try to find ONE solid reason today. Maybe it’s because you’re a role model to your kid. Maybe it’s because you have a goal and you haven’t reached it YET. Whatever it is, use that. You’ve got this!
The wedding was beautiful. Thanks @nate2raw_ for the invite uce and the excuse to come visit your homeland. Was an awesome occasion!!! Raro was....interesting lol not what I expected tbh! More of a tourist place than I had imagined which was dope coz the party vibes were REAL😂 but stink coz you had to reeeeeeaally look around to get some authentic island food 👎🏽 would def do it again though! also surprised at how many people I bumped into that I knew from back home lol Here are a few highlights 🇨🇰
Sometimes, you need a reminder of how far you’ve come. The left was in March, only a month into my fitness journey post baby before I started 80 Day Obsession. The right is from September when I finished round 1 of LIIFT4. Is this the leanest I’ve been on my journey? No. I bloat. I fall off my meal plan too. But it’s still awesome progress.
Because I know how much I enjoy every treat of the holiday season, I’m really working to put myself into my “Holiday Hustle,” focusing on my nutrition and workouts and giving my best every day. That way, when the treats come out at the holidays, I’ll know I have put in the work to enjoy those treats without feeling guilty! Life is about balance! .
So if you want to join me, drop an emoji below and I’ll be in touch with you! The first three people to join me will also get a shaker cup and a sample of Shakeology on me!
For your viewing pleasure + our “Tuesday Tunes,” here’s an a cappella version of our original song, “Castaway.” 😂 I cracked up in almost every take because of Justin’s face, so I’m glad we got one... even if it’s not perfect!
Two things to note: Justin’s face (he’s going to kill me for pointing it out so much) + Dan’s little creepy ending. Thanks for listening.

You just can NOT go wrong with our towels!
They looks good, they keep you cool, and they stand the test of time.
The real question is why don't you have one already? 👍
P.S. - You can get them in all kinds of colors to match whatever outfit you have, but we all know that the blue one is the best!
