My Client Samantha…

My Client Samantha…

Let’s talk about my client, Sam, for a minute…

There are 100 things I could list in the category of places she’s made massive shifts and has been reaping the benefits of from watering those seeds every day…it’s been seriously amazing to watch.

BUT this right here is my favorite kind of win.

When it comes to starting your day off right, it’s a NON NEGOTIABLE as far as I’m concerned.

Where There is a Will There is a Way

Where There is a Will There is a Way

“I literally just put a lidocaine patch on my ass cheek so I could actually finish cleaning this house without limping.”

Yes. That is an actual text I sent to a friend yesterday.

Why? Because I’ve been going really fucking hard for 3 days straight and my body hates me.

Real talk though, I forgot that no one knows about my past injuries. You can’t see them, so nobody is aware but I have permanent damage in my back and knee. And no I’m not just sore from working out, that soreness has got nothing on this kind of pain. Continue reading “Where There is a Will There is a Way”

Be The Change

Be The Change

Sometimes I wonder if you’ve ever done to her what you did to me.

When the doors are shut and there’s no one around and you have no one else to take your anger out on. Do you turn to her like you did to me?

Then I think, if you haven’t…when will you?

I mean, it’s only a matter of time isn’t it? Continue reading “Be The Change”

Your Own Power

Your Own Power

Once upon a time I was dating this guy who said to me, “Once you realize how powerful you are, you’re going to be unstoppable.”

I took a screenshot of the text because I remember it being “so inspiring” at the time.

I ran across the photo of that text the other day and I can tell you that this time around, that comment wasn’t taken so flattering. It actually made me a little annoyed for a moment…followed by my laughter at the pure ridiculousness of the statement.

Shine Light

Shine Light

I was asked to speak about living intentionally and fitting exercise into your life on a podcast today and I got to share my own fitness journey in the process… SO BLESSED!

It’s amazing to be able to shine light on overall wellness and changing your life. No, I’m not a personal trainer or a nutritionist but I am the other piece of that journey. The mindset, the planning, the focus, the habits, creating all of that takes intention mixed with action and it also just happens to be MY JAM.

The coolest part was sharing my own personal story and being able to shine the light on the other side of the coin as far as body shaming goes. It still remains a subject that is not spoken about enough.

But being recognized for the work I’ve been put in building my body into something that is exactly that; BUILT, strong, and powerful was an incredible honor that is new to me.

It felt good to talk about this topic and was a great reminder that I have literally CREATED THIS LIFE.

Just feeling so freaking blessed today and wanted to share the love out into the world 

Observations and Impostors

Observations and Impostors

When you’re the kind of person that observes everything and really SEES… it can be very bittersweet.

Bittersweet because you see things you didn’t really want to see. And once you’ve seen behind the curtain, you can’t unsee it.

You Don’t Know What It’s Like

You Don’t Know What It’s Like

“But Jamie, you don’t know what it’s like!”

Really? I don’t know what it’s like to be broke and not have enough money to pay rent, let alone figure out if I had enough gas to get me to work until payday? Yes. I know that reality all too well. So, quit being so damn assuming and remember that we all start somewhere and you my friend, are not the only one who knows what it means to struggle. Continue reading “You Don’t Know What It’s Like”
