NOBODY IS PERFECT: and you can put me right at the TOP of that list.
This weekend was, well let’s just say it wasn’t my best. The negative voices came calling around Friday afternoon and were pretty relentless for the past three days.
I’ve done pretty well, but also gave myself a little grace. 14 months and -157 lbs down is a lot to be proud of of, but I’m not going to lie. It also takes a lot of emotional energy and personal resolve to stay the course. Sometimes that means I have to take a break and hit the reset button in order to re-strengthen my heart/mind muscles as much as my physical ones.
I know where I use to be. I still remember painfully clear how it felt to be 404.4 lbs, depressed, sad, frustrated with myself and the body I’d built. I also KNOW where I am, who’s I am, and what I am worth regardless of my achievements in the area of weight loss.
Today I’m just grateful for a support system who never lets me down 💕 They speak truth and love into my life and remind me to just breath. That’s what I’m doing now: breathing ... in gratitude. I hope you’re able to do the same friends.
Here’s to another new week full of opportunities and adventure! Make it a great one 💛

Pink isn’t my favorite color.. 💕
This how fun my weekend was. I don’t want it to end....
I don’t like to talk about personal things - I never have. I usually push everything down and go about my business
The problem with this, is that it always catches up to you. I’ve been struggling for months now, and over the weekend it finally caught up
When it catches up, it becomes so much worse because you’ve internalised it for so long. It’s important to ask for help when you need it - and maybe one day I’ll learn this too
It’s not a weakness, and it never will be. Even though it may often feel like it, we’re not alone. I have a massive amount of gratitude towards the two or three people I can open up to when I desperately need it, even though I may never say it

These excuses sound familiar? The only thing you need to quit right now are those excuses because you will always find a reason not to do something. . .
How about you change your mindset NOW to say “Let’s do this!” and come and join us for class tonight - yes it will be cold, yes it will be dark and yes it will probably be raining, but we will be indoors out of the rain, disco lights will be on to light your way, and we will be werking it to some killa tracks to keep you warm! . .
See you at Lathlain Function Centre at 7pm - bring water, sweat towel and a mat ✌🏻 #thejunglebodsquad #mondayfeels #letsdothis #noexcuses #startyourweekright
I take care of everyone else but not me.
I can’t justify spending the money on me.
I don’t have the energy.
I don’t know where to begin.
I can’t cook.
I don’t like to eat what you eat.
I don’t have time because of my kids schedule.
I can’t wake up early.
I can’t move my body like that.
I could never help others like you do.
I don’t have what it takes to do that.
Have you ever thought just how negative these statements are? And have you ever given yourself a gut check about saying them? Sure, some of these may apply at some times in our lives. But when it becomes the norm - months and years at a time - these are nothing more than passive excuses.
I gave myself the gut check a few years ago. Six months before that, my best friend tried to give me that gut check, but I ignored her.
When my son was born, I realized that I never wanted him to be my excuse. He is my reason.
You will never be able to live a purpose filled life comparing to someone else’s or making seemingly harmless excuses. For every objection you have to living your best life, there is a positive counter when you dig deep to find it.
Is it easy to flip the negative to a positive? No
Do those of us that try every day always succeed? No
Will you ever regret trying? No
Are you capable of living life to the fullest? Yes
It’s not easy or blissful, but I promise it’s not impossible or as hard as we often make it out to be. Since that gut check, I have spent the last three years helping women set and achieve some big and small life goals.
My June Soulfit Challenge begins next week. Maybe this is your gut check.
Let me help create a healthy lifestyle with a focus on being fit from within. You will receive daily encouragement, customized meal plans, and a fitness program to do in your own home. Maybe most of all, you will give yourself the opportunity to thrive!
Sister, don’t ignore yourself or these words. Embrace your greatness. Why not you??
Private message me, and let's do this!
I’m rooting for you. 💛

Happy Father's Day!
