Feel the power of the ocean. 🤙🌊🏄♀️
Friends, let me tell you....surfing is no joke. One of my bucketlist items is complete. This skill though, needs refinement and practice for sure. When I was out there and felt like I had the hang of it, the ocean was like, "HA! NOPE! Try again." Instead of giving up and quitting, I kept pushing and trying. Falling over and over, but so determined to feel the power of the mighty ocean. Y'all! I stood up on that board and put that ocean below my feet. Even if it was just for a few seconds, it was long enough to keep me going. The patience in the stillness, the drive in the moment, and the thrill of the ride is all you have to experience at least once in life. So let's send it and hang loose! .
🤩💦. Sweating’ on a Monday to wear the dress on Friday! Duhhhhh! Lol. Happy Monday! Staying self-motivated is key for me. Today was 30 minute core circuit plus legs/glutes 550 calories. What are you working out??? :)).

We ALL have that #SashaFierce within us... it’s just all about finding that #courage & #confidence to channel her 😋
After years of body shaming & picking apart all my #imperfections... I’ve chosen to RE-WRITE that shit. 🤭
All those stories & lies I was telling myself were only “true” because I was allowing myself to believe them. Fuck that. Life is too short to hate the life you are living, shift your perception of yourself and watch your entire life transform. .
Every single day now, I am constantly writing myself a new story and guess what, SO CAN YOU, BOO! .
I’ve got one shot to live this life I’ve been blessed with, why not be proud & show up like the Diva that I’ve always wanted to be. .
I’m in charge of my life, and all these stories that I tell myself add up. If I keep allowing the hate, hows that going to affect the trajectory of my future? .
Be present and listen to all the thoughts that you allow to run through your mind. Start catching the negative ones and learn how to rewrite them. Trust me, it sounds easier said than done, but girlllll... wait until you see how this can change your life.
I want to guide you through this process if you’ll allow me. Let me give you some thought provoking questions to be thinking about. Activities to do so that you can start re-writing the way you feel about yourself. If you feel like you’re at a time in your life where you’re ready to commit to making some serious changes in the way you speak to yourself, we need to get on a call. A 1hr call with me & wait until you SEE how differently you will show up for yourself! .
If you’re ready, DM me! I’d love to have a little convo with you and ask you a few questions before we book a call!
Remember, you’re in charge of the direction your life is headed. If you don’t love it, let’s put a new freaking address in that GPS 😋 Change your thoughts, change your LIFE!
I love you and I’m so proud of you for standing up for yourself and your future!!
PS- how dope is this picture! My good friend and photographer @theandrewreedphotography is the MAN. Please go follow him and show him so love!
When ever I can I always find a way to help others and so can Y'ALL. Remember someone else is having it worst than you or me. GOD has Bless US with more health than others so we can give some to those who need it more. I AIN'T LEAVING THIS 🌎BEFORE I HELP As many as I can that's MY LEGACY. GIVE HOPE TO OTHERS even if you feel like you don't have it anymore in you. Good Day to Y'ALL I'm A BUSY MAMA SOOO I'M TAKING MY TIME TO DO WRITTING NOT RUSHING CUZ GOD'S PLANS ARE PREFECT and my TIME WILL COME SOON...

Skip the pizza delivery today and get your hands on a homemade pizza that will leave you feeling oh so satisfied 🤤 Following up on yesterday’s recipe, you can easily turn your cloud bread into a pizza with whatever toppings you fancy. In this video I made two different styles of pizza. The base is made from canned whole peeled tomatoes which I blended into a sauce, and topped it with cheese, basil leaves, avocados and some leftover pesto that I previously made. Keto style 😎💯 Ingredients 🌟🌟🌟
1️⃣ 1 can whole peeled tomato, blended
2️⃣ Mozzarella cheese (or any mixed cheese), spread evenly to your liking
3️⃣ Basil leaves/Pesto sauce
4️⃣ Olive oil, drizzled
5️⃣ 1/2 avocado, sliced
6️⃣ 5 cherry tomatoes, halved

I'm sitting outside soaking up the last warm day we are supposed to have for a bit. Practicing some mindfulness, I'm seeing the bees buzzing around gathering that last bits of pollen, do they know it will freeze tonight, and soon they will be forced indoors too? Seeing light play off spider webs between blades of grass. Hearing birds singing, and children playing at the nearby school. (And unfortunately a loud chainsaw, he must be getting ready to start his fireplace). I'm feeling the sun and the breeze on my face, touching the grass under my bare feet, tasting the fresh ginger tea a friend bright me for nausea. Smelling the autumn smells of leaves and chimney smoke. My illness had made my life and time kind of stand still. I have to do the time to heal, I have to honor the time that my body needs to kill the cancer cells. This is so not easy. But I'm determined to find gratitude and joy in all the moments of my life. Even the hard ones. I am surrounded by love, prayer, support, kindness, service and friendship. I'm so very grateful for my life, and the amazing people God has blessed my with.

Do you also give up on yourself when the doctor told you that “nothing you can do about it”? I took charge of my health.

Today’s work attire consists of a bikini (bottoms) and bare feet because I can’t be bothered to sit at a desk inside with neon lights #nothanks . Cheers to the good life and breaking away from societal norms and ACTUALLY working and living the life of my dreams.
Also don’t mind my tan lines lmao. This is what happens when you do 2 hours of breathwork in the blazing hot sun.
Back to the daily grind! Got home yesterday from #UIA which was literally THE. BEST. TRAINING. I. HAVE. EVER. BEEN. TO. (And I’ve been to A LOT of training across multiple topics in nursing and healthcare).
I don’t think many people realize the great need for personal development in order to be happy in life. I don’t mean you are are generally happy. I mean, you are happy deep down in your soul with you life, marriage, job, purpose, community, relationships, etc. This is what this training does for you. You become wholely and distinctly aware of the possibilities for your own life, IF you are willing to get uncomfortable. I know, it’s scary. It was for me to....but what if.... .
what if being uncomfortable could give you the life you have only ever dreamed of? Would you be willing to at least try?
@davidtswood is a god in training and making you recognize your worth, that you have a choice, and belief in yourself and others. That is truly the only difference between me/you and the people out there who make money, are very successful and extremely happy. Promise. .

Good morning Kings and Queens!! Happy Transformation Tuesday. In order to “See a Victory” you have to be willing to get in the arena and face the giant!!! My giant a few years ago was my mind and body. Being raised by five brothers has taught me to really face any situations and to conquer it. Remember all giants will fall but you have to face it like a G!! No excuses, no gimmicks, and definitely no “I will wait until I’m ready” because you will NEVER be ready. Have a fabulous day. #transformationTuesday. #empowerhealthandwellness. #healthiswealth. #paintopurpose. #tragedytolegacy. #yougotthis. #Icameandconquered. #socanyou. #letsgethealthytogether. #RIPmom.
