If you've had a rough day, week or even month, think on this for a moment. The rain that brings with it pain and frustration...how can we use it to nourish seeds of joy, instead of just letting it drench us in sorrow? 💧 How can we find a way to grow from it, instead of fighting, resisting and avoiding it? 🌱
Often, we fear change - but our pain is the gateway to a change for the BETTER...if we let it! We need to embrace the rain. Understand what the storm is trying to show us. Confront the emotions, make sense of them despite the pain it may initially bring, and use them to grow seeds of joy.
And yes, Will Smith did actually rap those lyrics in an awesome song called 'The Rain'! The man can be deep when he wants to be! (Though the rapper, Common, also helped make the lyrics!) Highly recommend the song for anyone looking for an injection of defiance in the face of adversity. 😊🙏🏽

Ive been trying to lose weight for over 10 years. Even when I was still in high school I was dieting and trying to shed some lb’s! I always thought $$ was a big part of what was standing in my way. I couldn’t afford a gym membership and if I could I didn’t know how to use the equipment and would then have to hire a trainer! And eating healthy... it’s so expensive!! No!!!! JUST NO!!! I sat and put all these road blocks in my way. This is my gym, my gym has also been a balcony on a cruise ship, the yard! My gym is whereever I carry my phone laptop! And my grocery bill is smaller than it ever was buying all the “diet food”!! Don’t let anything stand in your way!!! If you’re ready to make a change I’d be happy to help ❤️❤️ #mygym #mommasgettinfit #makeachange #healthylifestyle #healthychoices

I come from a Muslim family and proud of the fact that my parents gave utmost importance to my education. Yes, there was criticism from the community, many relatives objected to the fact that I had to travel to Delhi for my education but we did not give in. My education paid off and today I am a Communication Officer in Central Government which brings it's own share of challenges. I have to travel to Naxal hit areas of Jharkhand and work on different issues with the local people. I have to travel long distances to reach these extremely backward and dangerous regions, but working for these rural people, especially the young girls there, brings me immense satisfaction. These girls look up to me and I reiterate to them that education is the key of all happiness and success.. I have had instances when parents of these girls come up to me and said, "We want our daughter to become an Officer like you." That moment all my hard work and struggle seems insignificant and I feel hugely satisfied.
I nominate @dial_m_for_mr
to take up the challenge..

always let your light shine, no matter what ☼ no matter if youre having a bad day. or if somebody is putting you down. or if you can’t see the change that you want. cause what you think you become. what you feel, you attract. and what you imagine, you create. its insane how your thinking can affect your mood in a way you never though. you really do have choice in this life, choose to be happy. trust me, everything becomes so much easier. ☼
SIX years ago today I met my first baby girl 😍 so today you get a throwback transformation story 😃 .
They say 9 mo in 9 mo out… but six years ago that mama didn’t want ANYTHING to do with that. I WAS MORTIFIED with how much weight I gained during that pregnancy 🙈 been there?? .
I was OBSESSED with being a “skinny mom” - and desperately wanted to look like all those women who pop out babies and come out of the hospital in their skinny jeans…🙄 .
Well - if you’ve followed my story you know thats not ME. I struggled BEFORE kids to be “skinny” so of course one month postpartum I was wearing a horribly uncomfortable belly wrap and sucking it in so much I wanted to pass out - and STILL hated EVERY SINGLE PICTURE! .
I was desperate but I was also nursing - so crash dieting, cleanses, pills and unhealthy quick fixes were NOT an option for me. Six years ago wasn’t my first transformation- but I WAS the first one where I was adamant about not cutting corners - my daughter was my driving force and im so thankful she led me down this path .
When I was cleared for working out thats what I did. I WORKED MY BUTT OFF. Literally. 😁
I worked freaking HARD. I ate SO clean. I got SUPPORT I needed from an online accountability group. I GOT RESULTS. 💪
And then I maintained them! GUYS this is huge! Not only did I get all of that baby weight off - 70 lbs of it to be exact - I kept if off! Well until I got pregnant again.. but thats another post my friends 😃 .
That’s the difference in a crash diet before summer hits and a true change in mindset - and I want to help YOU end the diet cycle - get off the roller coaster girl! 🤚
I want to help YOU earn your #transformationpost
- we’ve got just enough time before Summer hits for you to reach your #mombikinibod
goals 😜- ARE YOU IN?! .
I am looking for 10 mamas to join my April Fit Camp! .

Today is the first day of Spring!
Can't wait for all our plants and trees to bloom. What do you love most about spring?
hello 👋 it’s time for something new 🙌
equality/iːˈkwɒlɪti: the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, or opportunities.
Where would I be if I hadn't had the opportunity of a secure home and dinner on the table every night growing up?
Where would I be if I hadn't gone to school, and if I hadn't been able to stay in school throughout my teenage years?
But the much I have been given, isn't just for me. It's a gift given to me, to go through me, for others.
How can we use the status, rights and opportunities that we have been given - to love others, to raise others up, and to build towards equality in our world?
The goal is equality.
For this, what small action could you take today, as an everyday example of living this out?
What could our communities and our world look like if we all did something (even something little!) today?

Make your health a priority!! #makeachange
what one of our favourite non-vegan restaurants with the best vegan menu 💪🏽
I remember how uncomfortable I was when we took the picture on the left. Using my oldest to hide the weight I had put on after my husband returned from his 2nd deployment. I was so self conscious and definitely unhappy with myself
Now 2 years into my journey and I am feeling so much better. I finally have the confidence I’ve been longing for! It’s more than just the 30 lbs I lost, it’s about the energy I have now and the love I have for myself
If you currently are feeling how I used to, I want to help you find your confidence again!
Looking for 5 girls who are ready to make a change!💗
You’ll get to pick and choose the program that best fits the goals you have for yourself. All you need to do is commit to the program, nutrition plan, a daily shake, & finding your self-love!
We start April 9th! DM me to get started!
