Countdown to my birthday and I am celebrating moments of past birthdays. Last year on the day after my birthday I was rushed to George Washington University hospital. I passed out two times in my home. It was a frightful experience for me and my family. I would spend the next four days at the hospital and two weeks recuperating. That experience taught me to slow down and fully listen to my body. This year I am planning a quiet day. Reflection and self care. Celebrating how far I have come and how blessed I am for the gift of life. I am thankful for each day to be the best person I can be and am striving to have greater impact on the world. Birthday week countdown. #beingkarenalston #birthdaymonth #cancerseason

Life is an interesting journey, you never know where it'll take you. You could get the surprise of your life. ..Sometimes, on the way to where you are going; you might think: this is the worst time of my life.
But you know what?.. at the end of the road through all the adversity you could get to where you wanted to be, you remember: Whatever Don't Kill You Makes You Stronger! #liveyourlife #ti #la #comercialmodel #goodnight

- Day 199 - one thing I usually don’t think about is the fact that I have pretty much perfect vision. 👀 Both my parents needed glasses, as well as both my sisters need them, my uncle and cousin, my grandmother... I’m the only one in our family who doesn’t need them! 😱 I use these blue light blocking glasses by choice (and they make me look like my M&M mug 😜). What’s funny is that I needed glasses when I was 8 or 9. Then had my eyes checked and didn’t need them, then again at 17 I needed them again, at 20 I didn’t, then needed them again at 24, and haven’t again since then. I have a slight astigmatism in one eye and needed a very small +0.25 prescription... I’m not sure why or how my vision changed but I’m so grateful that I am able to see perfectly well without glasses.
It's bed time! Bed time story... Hmmm... it's really hard to read them a book because they have different want and they want to read it. So, here is what just happened... They both read a book(have each one) together and they read it to me out loud. And the loudest is James of course, all his words gogogaga the best ever! But Charles he read his book in different way,(of course he don't know how to read yet) he tells me story about scene what he sees in the book explaining the pictures with a lil story behind it.. I just wow to him. I didn't see that coming and I am so proud of him. He knows what his doing and I totally understand his story. Good job boys, it pays off the exhausted activities for today. I Love you so dearly my little men! #mytwoboys #theygrowsofast #timeflytrippletimes #luckymom #motherslife #motherhood #thankfulandblessed #mycharlesandjames #iloveyoucharlesandjames

ps. can’t explain how happy I am 😭♥️
I’ve had a few new friends on here so Id love to connect with you more. Here are 5 things you may not know about me:
1. I had a headbrace in 3rd grade because of my underbite. #cute
I know. Actually traumatizing haha. They wanted me to wear it for 23 hours a day (hard pass). 2. 3 of my favorite shows in high school were: The OC (Seth Cohen for life), Boy Meets World, and Greek.
3. I was a softball pitcher for 9 years. Still living in the glory days #DistrictChamps
😂. 4. I totally have ADHD. I have a million ideas and can’t finish anything 🙈. 5. Im never barefoot. I hate feet. I always am wearing socks (and they have to match- 9/1 they are black). Do we have anything in common?!
JUST A GIRL LIVING IN HER PURPOSE.
**You ever FEAR FAILURE? The idea of telling the world your goal frightens you because what if you fall short?! Awhile ago I decided to make moves not based on if I would SUCCEED but if I would GROW from the challenge. .
Thankful for my last speaking engagement at WOMXN’s STRENGTH SUMMIT!
Day 3 of my fast!!! And goodness have i learned a lot! Much of what I’ve learned has got me even more torn! All those on a health and fitness journey knows that in order for this to stick we need to mold it to us. People fail because it becomes too time consuming and I totally get that!
A very crucial part to all of this comes from your nutrition. And for the most part I’ve felt I’ve learned a lot along my journey about how to properly fuel my body......my issue though? Sometimes it’s just too much! I may be alone here....but eating 5 times a day was just not feasible for me....my body just couldn’t take in that much food. #truth
So I decided to take a different approach. I decided to fast......sort of like a reset of my body to be on the right track as a start our newest program! ✨
Monday I start .... @liift4
. I will be following the meal plan on an intermittent fasting schedule. And I am so excited to see what this newfound plan has in store for me!
When embarking on a journey PLEASE know that it’s not always going to be easy. Sometimes it takes tweaking....sometimes it means trying new things....the beautiful part of all of this....
ITS YOURS TO MAKE IT WHAT YOU WANT IT! ✨
No right or wrong way. 😉
Super excited to see what this new program is gonna do for me! As always....I’ll be sharing it all with you! Tomorrow morning I will be breaking my fast with a yummy superfoods shake! Then I will be prepping for day 1 of LIIFT4!! 🙌🏼

Holy shit 🦇 man!!!!!!!! Wow 😲 that is all that I can say about my transformation so far!!!!! To not only see the difference physically but to see that I am actually happy!!!!!! My mind is just blown away.
To think 🤔 I even questioned my choice when I started and doubted myself!!!!! Then to think am I worth this? Umm heck yeah I am and so are you!!!! If your tired of being the girl on the left and want to see results like the girl on the right I am currently running a free accountability group and can help you get started. I am only a message away!!! #transformationthursday #anewme #seriouslynofilter #holyshitbatman #amazed
God, when I loss hope, help me remember that your love is greater than my disappointment, and your plans for my life are better than my dreams. Now I am blessed with an incredible family, my real man and wonderful friends. ❤️❤️ #thankfulandblessed #Godblessus

Started new program ✅
Took measurements and before pics✅
Following the meal plan that goes with my program along with our whole system✅✅
I’m so excited about this program, I know I say that every time I start a new program....and I mean it every time:). There’s something so beautiful about starting a new program and knowing you WILL finish it.
That’s something when I first started I wasn’t sure would happen. I had never finished any program at home. And if not for our Bootcamps I don’t think I would have this time either. The Bootcamp is a place with like minded people, girls on the same journey and struggling with the same things...so there’s an instant bond. Then throw in the tools, recipes and meal plans and it’s hard not to success...plus there’s a money back guarantee so there that!!! .
Is today the day?!? The day you lose all your excuses and say to heck with it I’m gonna do this, because I’m worth it! Message me, let’s do this !!!
Thank you so much for 5000 followers I really really really love you guys like the support has been insane and I just can't thank you guys enough for this ! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart ❤
Celebrating the big 2 5. ✨ I spent the day with my sweet husband who took me for breakfast this morning, thrifting, and some shopping for our little girls nursery. It was the perfect birthday. Thankful for another year of life, and blessed with the greatest gift I could ever receive. 👶🏼 Happy 25 weeks to you too, sweet pea. 💕🍰#GrowingOllieJune #BlessedBeyondMeasure
It’s TACO Thursday not to be confused with Taco Tuesday🙌🏻. But really any excuse to eat tacos, is good enough for me...am I right?!?
Can you believe someone told me there was no such thing as taco Thursday....so I deleted them. I mean who needs that negativity in your life...lol
Be grateful for every second that you get to spend with the people you love. Life is so precious.
Today I'm thankful to wake up to all the birthday wishes from everyone! Love you all! 😘 XoxoXo #32today #thankfulandblessed
Let everyone know how #thankful
