Numbers on a Scale

31124239_10155345381336835_5635835017543052681_n.jpg

I remember when I used to value my results by a number on the scale and whether or not my thighs rubbed when I walked. Sounds ridic writing this down but it's true. I used to binge and starve myself back in highschool in order to stay at a certain weight. 
..
..
It lasted a few years and then I threw away my scale and I broke that daily habit of valuing myself by a number on the scale. I was MORE concerned with the "look" of fit rather than actually being fit. If you have struggled with achieving the "look" then I encourage you to do a few things. 
..
#1 throw out your scale
#2 hide your tape measure to only check 1x a month
#3 start writing in a journal and track what your body CAN do and celebrate that! How long can you hold a wall sit!? How about a plank!? What are you lifting? Have you increased your weights? Or what's your 5k time? Did you meet your water goal? What about less sugar? More veggies?
..
..
What I'm saying is that Fitness is measured by what your body CAN do. I never want to encourage you to "look" a certain way. I know that life and it sucks. You will never be happy if thats your goal. Surgeries, starvation and hatred for your body is NOT the answer. Instead Love is always the answer. πŸ’–πŸ’œπŸ’–
..
..
Btw, I'm happier now and I'm stronger than I've ever been. YES my thighs are thicker than ever πŸ‘ŒπŸŠπŸŠand I still don't have a scale and I have no idea what I weigh and I don't care. 
..
..
WE ARE WORTH MORE THAN A NUMBER. πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜

Five People

31073221_10155342525721835_790133836024598652_n.jpg

You are the average of the 5 people you choose to hang around. πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ
...
So ask yourselfπŸ€” Do you support and help encourage your friends to be thier best selves and go after dreams and goals? And do they do the same for you? πŸ€”Do you speak highly of them when they aren't around? And vice versa?! πŸ€”Is there judgement and comparison or is there only love and support? 
...
If you want a better life start with truly loving others around you and if you still feel like the relationship is toxic (bc be real... you can't change anyone) then you need to find people who DO lift one-another up. 
...
Thankfully these ladies are my positive influence. πŸ˜and too funny but truth, most of us all met through FB or IG. Soooo finding your bestie friend soul mates can also be done online πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ I love you ladies. Thanks for an awesome trip, see ya at the next one!!!! #teamsweatcoaches #bossbabes

All You Got

30743588_10155343380531835_564296473483686450_n.jpg

If you are going to do something then go after it with ALL.YOU.GOT. βœŠβœŠβœŠ
..
Seriously mindset is everything when it comes to hitting mental spiritual, health and physical goals. If you want mediocre results in any area then yea ....barely "try" but if you want THE BEST then don't just try. DO IT 100%!!! So you can look back and say....'I did that, and I'm proud of me and I'm going to keep going." πŸ˜˜ 
...
This is not at all about trying to achieve perfection (lets be real...I'ma bout to get a burger later πŸ˜‚πŸ”. This mindset is meant to achieve πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰happinessπŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ and living OUR life to the fullest. 
...
If you need help in any of those areas then all you have to do is reach out. Next Virtual Fit Club starts May 7th. Are you ready to give it ALL YOU GOT!?!?!? You know I am πŸ’ͺπŸ˜‰

It's fitting that 4 years ago..almost to the day.... I decided to try this "Online Business" and yes it's more than fulfilled my dreams of what running your own business should look like. πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜
..
If you ever wanted to become healthier, happier and get paid your worth in an industry you love then all you gotta do os reach out. I'll teach ya everything I know. Bc...lets be real...this "work" is amazing.

What the Crap AM I Doing?

I look at these photos and think...."what the crap am I doing!?" πŸ˜² but hey if you stretch and use muscles you now have then you can eventually do more of the "what the crap?!" moves. Try something new everyday people. Face the fear and do it anyway. βœŠβœŠβœŠ
...

Your vibe attracts your tribe

"Your vibe attracts your tribe" 
..
That statement couldn't be MORE true. So are you happy most the time? Or angry sad and depressed? Knowing from experience I was NOT happy most of the time. I was trying to please people and get approval and help OTHERS be happy. What that taught me was there are 2 types of people in this world. GIVERS and TAKERS. Yes there are mixes of both but not too often. 
..
It's SO important to take time for yourself and the Right people will always support that. The TAKERS will question your dreams and ambitions because they are worried How it will affect THEM and the GIVERS will celebrate in your dreams and goals and encourage you to go after it!!!!!
..
It took me a while to realize if I wanted to become MORE happy I needed to stop trying to give to the TAKERS. I needed to give that love to ME and to the other GIVERS in the world....Because Takers gonna TAKE TAKE TAKE 🎧🎢🎧🎡 And guess what!? It worked...Im surrounded by people who continually love not only others but themselves. TRULY. I've still got a lot growing to do but I love that I have found beautiful people to keep me growing strong. So thank YOU tribe. πŸ’šβœŒπŸ’š #zincommunity#poundposse #teambeachbody

happiness in the little things

30515985_10155321798721835_4223343077345565940_n.jpg

Tonight I'm Finding happiness in the little things.... I've got the Best cup of coffee in hand while scrolling social media being inspired by the people checking into the fitness groups and watching Eddie play video games he loves. It's a good night.
..
Remember to stop and be grateful for the little things in life because they are the moments we forget too often to appreciate and be thankful for. πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Don't Give Up

30222263_10155316749961835_6768907129344898275_n.jpg

Leaving in a week to head back to Riviera Maya, Mexico!!! This time some of my Coaching family who also earned this trip is going to join!!!😍😍😍 Yes ANOTHER Coach retreat!!! πŸπŸπŸ I'm so grateful I found a job I love so hard with a tribe of people who also FULLY believe in helping others live thier BEST life.
..
If you are also working on your dreams, DON'T GIVE UP. People will question your ambition everyday. It takes determination and consistency. Put your comparison and judgement aside and put your energy into some thing greater than yourself. Things will fall into place when you take risks, Chase your fears until they become your strengths and remember WHY you started on this journey. βœŠβœŠβœŠ

Taking Action

30221284_10155315154901835_381343481619249760_n.jpg

πŸ’ͺ😁 taking ACTION is the only way to get closer to your goals. We become what we repeatedly do. We don't become better by thinking about it. We Must Do it! So just like Nike tells us....JUST DO IT!!!! Or Shia Labeouf. He tells us to do it too. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ still one of my fav YT vids....go watch it if you need a kick in the butt. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Waiting to be Perfect

If you have to wait to be perfect before you take action, then you will be waitng all your life! Love yourself now while you are on the journey and you will find yourself getting stronger, happier and healthier in less time.
..
.. 
I remeber doing this move awhile back and struggling with balance and with keeping my back straight. I also wasn't able to go down to the ground like I am here..... But NOT TODAY!✊✊ It's because I KNEW if I took action then I KNEW I would be successful 30, 60, 90 days from when I began. 
..
..
So what are You waiting for?🀷🀷🀷 A sign? An invite to eat healthy...to workout out and be consistently challenging yourself? Well here it is....πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰I'M INVITING YOU!!! I have meal plans(that don't make you fast) a superfoods shake (that I drink everyday for my lunch) and workouts that work. You get access to a private app to stream workouts, download recipes and a private group with me to help you along the way. 
..
I don't believe in quick fixes. I believe in HEALTHY, LIFE- LONG LASTING RESULTS. If you do too then shoot me a message or comment below "info" and we can talk goals to see if this can work for you like it has done for me and my clients 😘😘😘 we can't change the past but our future can be full of health and happiness. Let me HELP. πŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ’š

Workout Done!

29541984_10155288009906835_6422254555600405133_n.jpg

Workout done!!!! I usually take Sundays off but yesterday I UNPLUGGED from everything so had to make up BOOTY day today!!!!

We all need to have a day of self care....and yesterday was that day for me. I researched cute patio ideas and spent money on Amazon....so yea. It's been a PERFECT weekend πŸ‘Œ

How was yours!?!?! Do you get energy from staying in or going out!?!? I definitely love my sweats and lounging 😍

Mediocre

28953838_10101461112640922_4770777261494315441_o.jpg

Don't settle for mediocre. If you don't like something, change it. We are ALL people with great ideas and dreams and passions. I've seen too many AMAZING people belittled or judged by others or themselves (for fear of what others think) because they weren't following the norm of society. πŸ˜› 
...
Think of your role models or people of history that really changed the world. They lived to thier fuller potential because they believed in a better life. Do you think before the greats became great they were accepted by EVERYONE? No, because they failed over and over before they became strong enough and wise enough to become the people they needed to become in order to do those great things.
..
I say all this to encourage you to realize that YOU are incredible! And I encouage you to become who you were always meant to be. It just takes stepping out of your comfort zone, sacrifice of time (that you get back in years of happy) and patience.....plus a whole lotta belief in your purpose. Find something you love and do it with the END result in mind. OVER&OVER&OVER again. Life is too short friends stop caring about the naysayers. Rise up and above by finding people who rise up and above. They don't got time for judgment, and doubts and neither should you. πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜

The Way We Do Everything

28827498_10101459149879312_8268333673191596137_o.jpg

"The way we do one thing is the way we do everything." 
...
When I heard this quote it really stood out to me. I thought about it and if I only gave half my effort with half my passion and half of my determination would I get the results I wanted???? NOPE. So why NOT give my ALL with my health!?!? πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ
...
57 days ago I decided to take on a program that needed more determination, more effort and more focus. I NEEDED to do this program for me and my health and future. I also do this alongside my Virtual Fit Club participants to help show them this IS POSSIBLE & WE ARE WORTH IT. πŸ–€
...
There are no shortcuts when it comes to our health. You get out of it what you put in. Do you need some motivation? What about help with a meal plan that works for you and workouts that push past plateaus(you can do from anywhere on your own time)?
✌ My next Virtual Fit Club starts April 2nd.✌Comment below or private message me.πŸ’ͺ😘 We can see if this can work for you like it did for me and my clients!

Ouch

28947267_10101460037755002_4574948941808535065_o.jpg

Well that was rough. I'm not gonna lie, I seriously waited too long to workout and probably should have had half my chili from earlier today...but I didnt. πŸ˜΄ I feel stuffed and tired and today I'm feeling it...πŸ˜›πŸ˜›πŸ˜›
I'm still checking in though, because NO it's not easy, but it IS worth it to me. πŸ‘‰DETERMINATION means doing hard things even on the days I REALLY don't feel like it. #virtualfitclub#virtualbootcamp #onlinesweatsesh

Life is Cool

28699219_10101457729176412_6781788195829692086_o.jpg

I Love this pic I found today in the Houston airport!!! To me it means keeping a chill but also driven attitude & making the BEST out of every situation I encounter. 
β– 
Remember there will ALWAYS be rough times ahead but if we make a real effort to look for the good in every situation then it becomes more clear to us that happier times are ahead of us. That happiness comes quicker to those looking for it, not just waiting for a better path or door to open for them. 
β– 
Is this happy-cool life EASY!? Heck no! I had to retrain my brain and clear the negativity OUT! I had to get really clear on what I wanted for my life & I showed up to a better life because I NEEDED & WANTED it enough. I had to LEARN from others I was inspired by and not be jealous of thier success. I had to ask questions (lots of them) and fail FORWARD learning from my mistakes. I had to look back on my past only to learn from it. Not to dwell on it and think of the IF ONLYS. I had to Repeat to myself "I CAN DO THIS!" & remember this is MY life. It's MY job to figure out why I am here and find MY purpose for ME. Nobody else can do that for me. But through the struggles I found my strength. I'm happy, I'm grateful and I am so fortunate to now be able to help others the same way I was helped. πŸ–€πŸ’œπŸ–€Find your passion and go after it WHOLEHEARTEDLY friends. Let your struggles become your strengths and continue to search out thay happy and cool Life✌😘
