Phew, made it to Saturday! If you're feeling a little out of balance at the moment, juggling lots of different things, and like you're not quite 'there yet' or on top of everything (or anything...!), that's ok. We all feel like that sometimes. Life is exhausting and can grind us into the ground some days (or weeks, or months...). And it can have a massive impact on your sex drive, in lots of ways - everything from the physiological 'stuff' like feeling tired because you're not sleeping (because you're doing #allthethings or thinking about doing #allthethings ) to feelings of unworthiness around pleasure. Like you don't 'deserve' to experience pleasure or to take the time to slow down and explore it because you haven't yet met the (super high!) bar you've set yourself or crossed off everything on your to do list.
Let me tell you something: you DO deserve pleasure. Always. No matter what. Regardless of what you have or haven't 'achieved', regardless of how many other things you have to do, regardless of how many other people or things you feel are waiting on your input. This weekend, take a time out - half an hour, 10 minutes, even 5 minutes! - to focus only on pleasure, either alone or with a partner/s. Your brain will pump out some happy chemicals (great for bonding, if you're with someone), your stress levels will drop, even if just momentarily, and you will feel renewed. Whether it's your relationship with yourself or someone else, it'll be stronger for spending even a little bit of time focused only on #sexualpleasure .
And btw, when you think you don't have the time, it's extra worth it to make the time. Pleasure is a fundamental part of the human experience that is (literally 😋) at our fingertips.
Anyway, long post...!! Enjoy your weekend, whatever you're up to! .
Just another day getting the ultimate scrub down. This was the one photo we took after seven hours together! I think I took five showers today 😂 Love my adventures with these women!!!

I say while we’re at it, why not have more fun? #inspire#selflove#laughwithme#holdinghands#youreworthit

Change is a funny thing, you see, my fitness journey is so important to me because it was the means for me to learn how to implement simple, and yet significant change. I started my fitness journey in the first place because I had hit my all time low. I explain it in my blog, but basically, I was extremely depressed, hated my job but never thought to change it. I hated myself, the life I was living was not what I wanted but I never actually thought to change it until through fitness, I learned that change is practical, and simple, not easy, but very simple. Nothing dramatic happened TO me to change my circumstances. I just made little changes. Little changes to change my habits. One of the simple things I did is I started being nice to myself. Normally I had a stream of “fuck me, I’m such a stupid bitch, blah blah blah blah blah,” going on in my head. I stopped, I decided to be nice to myself, so decided I was worth it, I hadn’t found a reason to decide that, I just did. It was little decisions, little changes like that that little by little beat my depression, and turned my life into one I loved. Are you nice to yourself??
This is my journey. I started it to lose weight. I’m not going to lie. It’s hard to sustain a “diet”. I’m just interested in sustaining a healthy lifestyle. ❤️
I want to take care of my body and work out because I love how I feel stronger. 💪🏼💪🏼 I am trying to get out of that mindset of working out because I overate. 🥂🍩🍭
That’s the thing about our culture. We are always comparing our bodies and looking for things that are wrong/fat/ imperfect 👯♀️
Let’s instead embrace our bodies for what they do for us. Not look at the flaws in what we want to change. 🦄🦄
But I can’t do what you do because... 😭 I don’t have the money 😭 I’m not good at makeup 😭 I’m not pretty enough 😭 I am too busy 😭 I don’t have a lot of friends 😂 I can’t do lives 😭 I’m not a sales person 😭 I think it’s so saturated 😭 I don’t think anyone will buy from me
😭 I’m scared what people will think 😭 I’m scared to fail
Did I name at LEAST one reason why you won’t try doing what I do??? Listen, I know this may be hard to read or come off a tad blunt but if you don’t change now, you’re going to be stuck where you’re at. Is that what you want?? It drives me insane when I see fb statuses about “working 4 jobs... hate Monday’s .... my boss is a dick.... wish I could be home with my kids... wish I could travel more... “... but then you DO NOTHING to change this!
It’s scary, the fear of the unknown. I get it. But instead of saying “what if I fail...” how about saying “what if I fly??”... “what if I’m successful!!” Because you will never know if you don’t try!
I get $99 can be hard to choke up for some. Been there. You were not born on this beautiful earth to work work work, pay bills, and die.
You are here to be GREAT, do GREAT, and create GREAT. You are here on earth to do amazing things, leave a legacy, and change lives! I believe in you!
Stop wishing for success, stop wishing for your dreams to come true. Every single person whose successful created that success. They worked hard for what they have and they DESERVE it.
And listen to me when I say this,... YOU DESERVE IT TOO.
It’s Friday, if it’s your payday, today is the day. Invest in YOURSELF, try something new, take a leap, and let’s create something amazing together!
Love this so much, I'm reposting. 💕
Sometimes negative thoughts come... so counter them. With 3 actual things that are good. I love this: 3 positive things for each negative one.
It's about focusing on where you can have a positive impact instead of where you feel helpless.
Example of 1 negative thought:
'It's cold and raining and I'm getting soaked and I HATE this.'... 3 (or more) positive counter thoughts - feel free to keep going if you're on a roll:
1.This means I'm going to enjoy how that hot tea I'm making after this will warm me to my BONES... one of the awesomest feelings ever.
2.I'm so lucky I can get into a dry building and dry off after this. I'm going to enjoy a hot shower later more than I ever have.
3.I'm lucky I don't need to be out in this cold rain ALL day! NOT chafing or shivering to death are major plusses. Yay! 😉 I'll never take heat and dry warmth for granted again.
Getting to the point where the pervading feeling of unhappiness truly starts to shift can take practice, consistency, and time.
Negative thoughts and feelings create a certain series of neural pathways and reactions in the body. Truly feeling more positive can take a while because the body and Being is learning how to create NEW neural pathways and neurochemical reactions.... It can take the body and Being a while to adjust. Do it regularly. The same way you probably take a shower or brush your teeth every day. Physical hygeine.
Positive thinking is mental hygeine. You have to practice regularly.
Works better if you're ALSO taking good care of your body - exercise, eating healthy for your body, etc... #mentalhygeine#challenge#flipthescript#doit#turnnegativetopositive#bethechangeyoucrave#createyourlife#proactive#practice#healthyhabit#prioritizeyourself#prioritizeyourmentalhealth#prioritizeyourhealth#youreworthit#health
#lh7daychallenge#day5 workout was a little easier the second time around except for the squat jump taps 😝 but my biggest take away from today’s challenge was in our daily message from @loriharder “Show up for life/create the life you want & choose to believe it/your identity is who you choose to be/don’t let your old story hold you back!” Such wise words ❤️🔥
Gods voice vs Satan’s voice •
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” 1 Peter 5:8 (NLT)
“The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” John 10:10 (NLT)
Satan will tell you lies. He’s a lion prowling looking for someone to devour ( 1 Peter 5:8). Satan will tell you that you are weak, worthless, not enough, unlovable and so many more lies. It is so easy to believe the lies of the enemy, it is so easy to fall into that trap. Satan’s voice will rush you, frighten you, worry you, confuse you, and discourage you. But Gods voice will still you, reassure you, enlighten you, encourage you and comfort you. Find your identity in Christ. Believe the things God says, not satan! We are Gods children! We belong to him, do not let satan fool you with his lies. It is so easy to fall into the lies the enemy tells you, because satan will hit you where it hurts the most. Every single time satan will hit you where you are weak. The voice in the back of your head saying you aren’t enough? Thats satan. Don’t fall into that trap because it will only destroy you. When we start to give into these lies look for Gods voice because he will be there saying “my child you are enough, you are loved, you are mine” So let’s believe what God says to us, and not what satan says to us! Because we are enough, we are loved and we are His!! •

From one of my amazing clients: “love being able to embrace the "study of one." In other groups I have been in, I have felt like we are all supposed to eat, exercise, and feel the same way. In this group, I've learned to really listen to my body and tune into what I need even when it seems different from what others are posting. I've learned not to feel like I'm doing something wrong because it turns out it is right for me and I'm seeing and feeling results."
Meet my dad...he just turned 85 this week and he is a 5 year stroke survivor. 💗 .
This guy right here is a fighter!! I love how he is just TOTALLY showing off here! 💗 . 👉Dad’s been working really hard on getting that right arm (his week arm) up higher and higher!! Today he got it almost as high as his left arm! Go Dad GO!!! 💗 .
I got him 2 of these cool “baseball” stress ⚾️ ball things he can hold and squeeze to practice working on his grip. As soon as I gave them to him he started working out!! Look at his face!! He’s so proud!! Proud daughter too!! 🏋️♀️ .
This guy right here REFUSES to give up!! #faith#love#nevergiveuphope#hiswillisstrong
#flashbackfriday looking at my before pic I can see how miserable and uncomfortable I felt. I was struggling to find all the answers, struggling to make my life work, struggling with exhaustion and depression. I mean I had everything I wanted why wasn’t I happy? .
Somewhere along the line of being a mother, step mother, wife, juggling work and everything in between. I LOST Rachel. I lost who I was, I was the last person on my priority list. (Heck I don’t even think I was on there)
I honestly watched in envy, women from afar who were enjoying their lives and loving their lives. Why couldn’t I be like that? Not fake Facebook happy, but truly happy. Like you can tell the difference, people see right through that crap.....(am I right?) Now I see myself and my life, and oh yeah I am becoming just that. Building my dream, and I get to help other women do the same. TOGETHER. I get to help YOU see your VALUE. Your self worth, I know your worth it, so lets do it? You down?
Remember Her?💗 .
She is still there.. inside you.. waiting.. let's go get Her!! .
Been revelling with my inner child lately, honouring Her in the ways she asks of me. I have been loving every moment of it. .
I am constantly reminded of the Importance of being Playful, Laughing, Creating, Seeing the world through New Eyes, Everyday. .
Inviting in Innocence, Joyousness, Curiosity and Play. .
She is here to stay 💗🗝 .
How can YOU Honour your Inner Child today? Have you been Listening to Her inner Guidance and Wisdom?
Hey friends, I have made a pretty big decision and I wanted to share it with all of you. For a while now, I have been feeling pretty down about myself emotionally and physically. I tried to make changes regarding my health but nothing stuck. I hated going to the gym and I had no clue what to buy at the grocery store. Then I discovered an accountability group filled with women who were on the same journey of bettering themselves and a coach who believed in me and pushed me. And yes let’s be real, at first I thought it was a huge scam to make money. But I was so so wrong. It was an environment of love and support and completely judgement free. For the first time I started to love myself again and stop being so negative with every look in the mirror. And I knew I wanted to help others feel that way too.
Along with being a registered nurse, I have decided to become a health and lifestyle coach and empower others who are ready to start loving themselves. I cannot wait to get started with accountability groups of my own and give back all the support I have been given. If you are like me and have been watching from the sidelines wondering if this is something you’d like to be a part of, send me a message and I would love to just chat. I’m here for you 💕 #womenempoweringwomen#thatcoachlife#igotyou#onelifeliveit#youreworthit#buildyourempire#justcallmecoach#isuckathashtags
💜🖤This is your Friday evening reminder (yes it’s totally a thing), that you age powerful beyond measure, capable of anything you are willing to work for, and that you could change your life today!
So many times I hear women tell me that they wish they could do what I do. How they’re just too busy, kids, family, soccer games, insert more of life here.
But the truth is, we are all busy AF. Some busier than others I will admit. .
But if you want one door 🚪 to open for your life, that means 1 door has to close. It’s about prioritizing your days. Your weeks. .
So what’s important to you?! What are you striving for these days? What is one big scary goal you have? And when was the last time you even asked yourselves those questions??? .
I am not here to be perfect.
I am here to learn.
I am not here to be right.
I am here to share my imperfect human experiences.
I’m just a girl who decide to for it and never threw in the towel. No matter how hard. .
Are you ready? Let’s do this 💜🖤. #DreamBeliever#ItsPossible#YoureWorthIt
The truth, the whole truth and nothing BUT the truth!💃💃 THOUGHTS OF THE DAY:
The funny thing is, you were telling the kids that I couldn’t leave because I don’t earn enough money etc etc etc....saying whatever lies it took for them to feel sorry for you for being ‘stuck’ in the family home with me and gloating about how much you do for me and I couldn’t live/survive without you etc etc etc...but now that I’m gone, it seems that you’re the one that’s struggling - oh the irony of the situation!🦋 It’s been almost a month now, and as the truth slowly emerges, and your lies start to unravel...I feel nothing but peace!🙂 I’m gone. I’m free. The dark cloud of lies, mood swings, eggshells, gossip and drama is no longer part of my life, and that feeling of freedom is indescribable! I’m not angry anymore because I honestly don’t care anymore! I don’t care if you admit to the truth or not because God knows the truth...He sees the truth of who you are...and it is His judgement you face - not mine! And as for me? I’m too busy learning and growing and changing to worry about what you did or didn’t do anymore. THAT is the true meaning and feeling of freedom!👌✌️ #overcomingdomesticabuse#cptsd#healingjourney#selflove#selfcare#selfrespect#selfworth#freedom
We have all made choices, and we all have choices yet to make in times ahead...it’s time to OWN those choices! Even reacting to their drama is a choice. When we own our choices, we hold the power to choose our HAPPINESS! We don’t need their permission for that! They’ve got their own choices to make and to own....and we can choose to be part of that, or not! 💃 #strengthofawoman#knowledgeispower#empoweryourself#youreworthit#yourenotalone#ibelieveyou ❤️💋

LOVE feeling like my head is 2 lbs lighter and that I did a thing to make myself feel pretty.
DISCLAIMER: I don’t think I was any “uglier” before and that’s not the point.
The point is that self care isn’t selfish. Go ahead and show yourself some love, girlfriend. Then go love some other people too 💖
