3 Steps to Take Before You Can Lose Weight

This is my first #TransformationTuesday post in maybe 5 years. It’s 7 weeks to the date that I started this journey, and have officially lost a total of 17 pounds.

I’m not writing this to toot my own horn BY ANY MEANS. After going back & forth about even posting at all, I decided to write this for all the girls who may feel like I did just 2 months ago.

How You Know the Universe is Trying to Tell You Something

Every day in Yoga Sculpt, before you start, the teacher asks you to set an intention.

This morning, I closed my eyes and said “letting  go.”

…of every person, every feeling, everything that’s not serving me anymore.

Then, the teacher sometimes chimes in and offers her personal intention with the class. Not a second later she says: Continue reading “How You Know the Universe is Trying to Tell You Something”

Monday Motivation

Happy MONDAY ya’ll! I wanted to share a GREAT reminder from my devotional today 🙏🏼✌🏼

Sometimes we wonder why we are the way we are. Sometimes we beat ourselves up for letting us get to this point. Sometimes we don’t understand why our efforts aren’t creating greater change in the timeframe we want them to. Sometimes life happens to us and we blame ourselves. Sometimes we get so frustrated, down, stressed & depressed because of these feelings that we feel like we can’t fight or reverse the self-depricating roller coaster we’ve put ourselves on.

Make choices from love, not restriction

Still on my Lent kick, so bear with me. And, if I think about it, I probably will be for the next 39 days 😉

If you recall, I wrote a blog on 19 things you should consider giving up for Lent. If you haven’t read it, obvi you should. They’re not your typical chocolate & alcohol sacrifices either.

Well, as we know, I vowed to pick one from this list (giving up feelings of unworthiness) & practice it religiously day and night for 40 days. I, along with many gals, struggle with this. Even if we look happy, pretty, confident & like we have it all, sometimes we really don’t know what’s going on inside. I’ve had a lifelong battle with an eating disorder and probably will always struggle with this to a certain degree. But, I have committed myself for the Lent duration to make this my main priority — give myself a little TLC, if you will.

But, I also wanted to give up something that was tangible. If you’re competitive like me, you want everything you do to be measurable. Continue reading “Make choices from love, not restriction”
