I AM PROUD. When I pulled this daily affirmation card this morning, my eyes got teary. I am so proud of where I am now and how far I have come. I am not only proud of losing over 60 pounds and 46 inches but I am proud of the way I feel. There is no better feeling than accomplishing a workout that you wouldn’t have been able to do a year ago. I am also proud of the girls in our accountability group this month! They are crushing workouts and seeing results! And that my friends is why I do this💕 Are you ready to stop watching and start doing?
About to be RAW AF!! Lengthy paragraph ahead FYI ) Talking Body Dysmorphia. 🙈 Before prep, I prepared myself for a struggle like none I had ever experienced before. It was hard but day in day out I made that shit happen. And I was proud of myself. Post competition and let me tell you...Body dymorphia is real and it’s a bitch. I wasn’t prepared for this. I’ve made mistakes post prep and I’m trying my best to forgive myself but the struggle is real af. When you go from being sooo lean it’s hard to see yourself any other way. At least for me. Add that with a bad habit of emotional eating and you have a dangerous combo. Trying to go back and take it day by day again. I’m trying to make my eating habits and thoughts healthy ones and be as normal as possible. I know I’ll get through this but fuck! I thought the worst was over but I’m realizing that more and more this sport I fell in love with is so much more of a mental fuck than I had originally thought. Praying to stay sane and positive. Each day is a new day. For those struggling out there I wish you the best 🙏🏽 I wish you strength and courage to be the person you wish to be. I’m with you ♥️ •Photo Cred @hollydazelifestyle #fuckbodydysmorphia #stayingpositive #alwaysevolving #daybyday #thankfulforthestruggle #goodthingsahead #bodyimageproblems #weightlossstruggles #postprepsteuggles #lovingmyself #bodyaesthetics #mentalfuck #watchmeconebackstronger #motivation #rawaf #firspo #npcbikinicompetitior #postfirstshow #offseasonstruggles #proudaf
I’ve got stretch marks. I’ve got varicose veins. I’ve got extra pounds, and wrinkles. . Gravity takes it’s job seriously around here lol . I’ve lost 45 + pounds, twice.✌🏼 . I’ve carried, birthed, & fed two amazing humans. . I’ve ran races, traveled the world, hiked mountains, and read books. . I’ve helped hundreds of people become their best selves. . I’ve coached, mentored, cheered, and guided them through insecurities, victories, plateaus, and breakthroughs. . All while becoming my OWN best self.✨ . But the one thing you will NEVER see me do, is put out another woman’s flame in order to make mine shine brighter. . We are ALL perfectly imperfect. . Health & fitness coaches are NOT required to look like they walked out of a fitness magazine in order to help guide and inspire someone.🖤 . You never know if someone has an underlying health issue, eating disorder, extra stress happening in their life, or has maybe already lost a bunch of weight. . There will be trolls, friends, & family members who may hide behind keyboards and say unkind things about you and your fitness journey. That is their issue - not yours - and it will speak volumes about who your true tribe is. . Just know that I am here to support, encourage, guide, and cheer you on - this is a judgement -free page. I am PROUD of YOU, and every single person who is working on bettering themselves in some way.🤍 . If you aren’t sure where to start or need a safe place to work on your journey, please reach out to me 💌 I am opening up 5 more spots in my bootcamp for kind people just like YOU who want to become healthier, happier, and more confident. . . . . . #thisis32 #strongasamother #mommingsohardrightnow #girlmama #bodyafterbabes #mamaoftwo #postpartumhealth #pnwmama #upperleftliving #girlmomlife #bekindtooneanother #thirtiesarethenewtwenties #proudAF #coachlife #biggestcheerleader

Work has been a mess lately, we've lost a lot of our crew. But ultimately, it's been a chance to prove myself and to take on bigger challenges for myself. I'm doing very well despite the added pressure and I'm really happy with and proud of myself. So, enjoy this pic of me being truly, genuinely happy with myself and my growth 🥰🌱 #lilsprout #growingup #happygirl #proudaf #improviseadaptovercome #babysteps #imdoinggood #genuine
Mom heard they’re adding a new section to this Veterans Memorial Wall #cityoforoville #buttecounty so we stopped by to check it out today on the way home from my Vet apt! This was the last place mom ever took grandpa...he passed away the next day after visiting this memorial site! It’s was our last family outing with Pops aka grandpa Ted...Mom has always said it was the closure grandpa needed...it was the door that took him home to be with his fellow service members...only prob is we don’t have him on this wall and he should be! He was a United States Army Korea War Veteran. Mom is going to find out how to get him on this Veteran Memorial Wall 🇺🇸 #cityoforoville #veteranofforeignwars #vfw #presidentsday2020 #usarmyveteran @orovillechamberofcommerce @oroville_ca
One of my favorite things to do is admire my quads - even if loose skin often hides them.

My legs have been my most insecure area for me. I still hide them away as much as I can. But today these legs pushed 185 # and I am damn proud of how far I’ve come! . Swipe for before ➡️ .

Long weekend happy + library 📚 what are you reading?
This past week, I was reminded of the quality of people in my life and how important it is to have uplifting people surrounding me. What seemed like an impossible and overwhelming job for me to do myself became possible with the help and support from my girls. I can’t express my appreciation for you all enough. Whether it was coming to paint, helping me clean, putting things together, moving heavy shit, sending me a text, checking in on the progress, words of encouragement, it all is so significant and I love you. ♥️ @christyadwyer @sariley77 @shinn_in @sbeaudoin23 @maya_graves22 @avva1256 #wedidit #proudAF

You have to BELIEVE! Believe you are fierce. Believe you have FIRE🔥 See your confidence, Remember your shine! Through all the things, we CAN come out again! Who runs the world!?🙋♀️ The person you see here has been a fighter for many things. Some of you were witness, some have heard stories, & some are new. Lately I've been fighting to treat this body of mine right, after all it's the only one we get! I ditched a program that wasn't keeping me excited, and started a different one that is #kickingmyass . I've been working on drinking enough water each day, eating veggies, all the stuff you know if you have been following me long. What I haven't mentioned is that I have not been drinking alcohol...no wine, no beer, #nada . I gave it up a few weeks ago and decided to see how it affected my body, my moods, etc. and I have been pleased with the outcome! I go to bed at a decent time, get up at 5am without kicking and screaming, gladly do my workout, and am not drinking worthless empty calories... so I suppose I'll keep at it a while longer and see what other goodness comes from it! Plus, St. Pauli NA is pretty tasty! 🤩 #blondeisbetter #blondeandstrong #heresto40 #chooseyourwhy #liveyourbestlife #goalcrusher #proudaf #coachlife #blondeshavemorefun #hikerchick #healthjourney #nonalcoholic #helpingpeopleandmyself #fightthefight #beachbumfitsquad #sweatforit #wakeprayslay #getoffthecouch #doitforYOU
"Dude.. look at her body!!" "I wish I looked like her." "Her ass is on point and look.. no cellulite." "I want to look that good in my underwear." These are some of the comments that were said today while I waited to run in my underwear..ish.. for charity. Seriously, everyone was checking everyone else out and straight comparing themselves. Here is the deal.. if this is something that you struggle with then you need to cut that shit out!! Who cares if someone's ass is smaller than yours!! Who cares if the girl next to you DOESN'T have rolls when she sits down!! You can have a banging body BUT.. if you don't have confidence.. you'll never be satisfied!! If you have confidence it doesn't matter what you look like!! Being confident in your own skin is what I help my girls in my challenge group achieve. Losing the weight and the inches are the byproduct of finding their CONFIDENCE!! Stop thinking your not good enough!! What will your CONFIDENCE look like?
Down 20 lbs - The amount of changes I’ve made is insane. The amount of things it’s affected is even crazier. More muscle, less acne, more active, way happier. When I first started trying to get more lean, my legs were my biggest thing I wanted to change, but everything else just went with it. Plus we don’t even use plastic bottles anymore. 🌱 (yes that is my husband in the second picture 😂 ) • • • • • • #weightloss #musclegain #byefat #leanup #lovethechange #healthierlifestyle #powerful #proudaf
SO MANY GOOD THINGS: ((update on my journey here ) ) First off.... I FINALLY hit the 150s as of today and I'm so effing proud of myself. I haven't been in the 150s in 5 years. This is so satisfying. Also, I am down TWO ring sizes and finally fit into this ring below. I've always wanted to wear it but it only fit my pinky since getting it 😭. Can't wait to sport the #ruby color! The bracelet is also my favorite one I own and the last time I put it on, it was tight up to my wrist. Now it hangs and I have so much room. I AM SO HAPPY AND PROUD! Small things are achievements too!!! 💪😍💕 #NSV #hittinggoals #progress #proudaf #150s #happy

Remember this skirt I wanted to recreate?

Mein Mädchen 🥰 Du hast mich zur Mama gemacht & mir damit gezeigt was wirklich wichtig im Leben ist. Grade mal 20 Jahre alt war ich als wir von dir erfuhren und während alle anderen feiern waren saß ich zuhause und wusste - jetzt beginnt die schönste Zeit in meinem Leben. ♥️✨💫 Du machst mich jeden Tag so unglaublich stolz und ich weiß, wenn ich in deine Augen sehe, ich habe etwas perfektes geschaffen!♥️ Jetzt wirst du bald große Schwester und wir wissen, diesen Job wirst du perfekt machen und wir freuen uns schon wahnsinnig auf die Zeit!✨ Du hast mir gezeigt was wahre Liebe ist & vorallem wie viel liebe man für so einen kleinen Menschen empfinden kann.💫🥰 Ich liebe dich abgöttisch du kleines perfektes Mädchen ♥️🥰 . . . #proudmom #mommyandbaby #babygirl #proudaf #mamaleben #girlsmom #mädchenmama #youngmom #love #kiwu #baby2020 #septemberbaby2018 #junibaby2020 #family #youngfamily #loveofmylife #likeme #followme #followforfollow #likeforlike #loop #instaloop #girl #mom #liebemeineslebens #bigsister #bigsistertobe #babyboyiscoming
Long weekend happy + library 📚 what are you reading?
There was no new year new me post for 2020. I’ve always found new year resolutions silly. I demand growth from myself everyday since I’ve been about 15. That’s almost 11 years of extreme pressure that I do not regret at all. I came home from the gym this morning and I had the most overwhelming sensation. I’ve never felt as beautiful as I do in this moment. 2019 really challenged all my morals, and all my beliefs. I felt like I carried the weight of the world on my shoulders. I’ve never questioned myself so much if I was making the correct decisions. Having to move and think QUICK constantly. I dealt with two months of medical issues and still managed to run circles around people doing the work of more than one. #ProudAF I’ve wanted to scream, cry and maybe even do a “crazy” laugh. Moments of confusion and feeling slightly lost, but at the end of the day the rational side will always be greater than the emotional. We just keep on keepin on. When I was younger I had a silent “why me” in my head. With wisdom now, I can understand that any pain I’ve endured turns into beauty if I let it. I have the ability to come across people in my life, carry them when they need it, and make them better than I found them. Everything makes more sense the longer I live, and the longer I live the more powerful I become. I am so proud of that 15 year old girl for putting her emotions aside, and going for something that she couldn’t comprehend yet. There’s no one else I’d rather be. I want the suffering just as much as the pleasure, because all of it is my life. 😭❤️The best parts of me social media will never see or understand. Atleast not yet. ✌🏼 #UntilThenThisPictureOfMyButtWillHaveToDo #ICanBoxWithMyHandsTiedBehindMyBack #PatienceAndConsistencyIsKey
The girl on the left was lost. The girl on the left was sad and depressed. The girl on the left had no idea what her place was in this world. The girl on the left had no direction or purpose. The girl on the left had to be that girl to get to the girl on the right. We are all a work in progress, but I firmly believe in trusting the process. We all have to go through things to get to where we are meant to be. I’m working every day on bettering myself and adding things into my daily routine that will get me there. My daily nonnegotiables include: working out, walking Dugan, listening to at least one personal development podcast, and fueling my body with the proper nutrition. So my question to you is: why not you? Join me in this ever evolving journey of finding your best self. Send me a message and I will get you started 💕 can’t wait to chat loves.
Wow wow wow! 😭😍You guys, I can’t stop smiling today!! I got the best Valentine’s Day news this morning when I found out me and my team are ranked #50 in THE ENTIRE NETWORK of over 400,000 Beachbody coaches. 📣 FIFTY!!!! Getting my own results, supporting my family & helping others is extremely motivating but to be ranked so high based on our team’s success so far in 2020, really shook me. I’ve been working my ass off for over 5 years to help others and this ranking reflects the change WE ARE making on the world. My job is to workout, eat healthy, learn about wellness and support other people through the same journey I’m on. IT’S A FREAKIN DREAM JOB where the job duties are things I’d want to be doing anyway. It’s untraditional and it can push you to get uncomfortable, but I’ve found that through getting uncomfortable in life is how we GROW! It takes courage to be yourself and share but it’s not “hard”. What’s hard is working a job you hate, always struggling with your health & living paycheck to paycheck. I’m telling you there’s another way. We have a big LIVE new coach training tomorrow that you can be part of if you want to join this movement ASAP! We can only reach our goals together, so I’m looking for 5 new coaches I can closely mentor to grow businesses this year. LOOK OUT 2020 TEAM TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS IS COMING FOR YOU! Congratulations to my #teamtcb fam, this is big! 🖤🙌⚡️
Monday Motivation! It’s taken me a long time to get to this point, but I am a firm believer in being your own motivation, not looking to social media or other outlets to compare yourself. You want to be better? Let yourself and your current situation be your motivation. Motivation is hard, but committing to yourself to be the best version of you is everything. I am so grateful for the community that I am part of where I have daily accountability check ins to keep me motivated to be the best version of me. There’s days that I don’t want to work out or move my body, but I use self motivation and the commitment I have made to my accountability groups to get that shit done. EVERYDAY. Are you looking for added motivation or accountability? I have the perfect solution for you! Message me to snag your spot. Can’t wait to hear from you 💕
