All me

There is no such thing as being too busy.  If you really want something, you’ll make time for it. Fill your cup first. I did something a little uncharacteristic of me; I spent the last 24 hours with myself as my highest priority. It took planning, a few weeks in the making; and I hemmed…

Missing me

Did you know the average woman puts herself down at least eight times a day? Whether to herself or out loud in front of other people.  I do it all day, but it has to end. Self-love. It has absolutely nothing to do with the way you look, but the way I see yourself. Open…

The struggle

There is so much growth in silence. I’m still here, just been busy and trying to figure things out. Learning to love yourself is a lifelong journey. Every day we are changing – evolving into the person that we were born to be; 2018 will be my year. A year for tremendous growth – always…

Dream

Happy hump day! Anything is possible. This week has been a much better balance, the balance I’ve been dreaming about. I strive to have my cake and eat it too. I want to put forward the best version of me, it all lights. The best mom, wife and lover, friend, employee…the list goes on. Being…

On a string

A year ago, I shared a quote: I have trouble articulating myself sometimes, but it’s simple: If someone wants to be in your life, they’ll make an effort to do so. Actions speak louder than words. When someone forces you to conform to only their schedule? I’m here, when I’m available – we’ll sync up…

Setting my intention 

I’ve been missing yoga, I haven’t been able to get there the past few weeks because of other commitments. It truly is my favorite day of the week, I really look forward to it. At the start of every class we set an intention, what is it you are looking to accomplish during this class….

#nailedit

The comeback is always stronger than the setback.   I went through my week sore, I am sure today will be no different. Tuesday night was a daunting but amazing workout! What they refer to as a “chipper”, as you are “chipping away” at the crazy number of reps. 50 dumbbell thrusters, 40 alternating pistols…

#survivalmode

Sometimes I come alive at night, this just so happens to be one of those nights. Whizzing through the house getting to all the “stuff” I’ve been making lists about for weeks. With school in full swing, we’ve entered survival mode! School has begun, and afternoon activities are in full swing. The first day of…

Mom on a mission

I’m a mom on a mission to find balance.   Reset. Readjust. Restart. Refocus. As many times, as you need to. I lost a total of five pounds in the month of August, I’m pretty happy with that considering all the parties and everything that goes along with it. I’ve been managing to get to…

Effort

Get out of your own way already. Decide to let tomorrow be the day that you are stronger than your excuses and that you love yourself enough to make a change.  Sometimes I cannot be tamed, when I know what I want I go after it and don’t give up until I get it. I…
