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
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.

I often think to myself, “Why must we make things so complicated?”
While yes, this is the case when it comes to business and planning and execution more often than not, we also do the same thing when it comes to our personal lives. We make everything so damn complicated.

Be mindful of your vibe.
I met my friend Jordan for breakfast this morning at my favorite spot. This has quickly become our “thing” because well, breakfast is delicious and it’s an easier time for him and I to make work with our crazy schedules.
We were sitting across from each other at the end of the community table chatting and drinking our coffee when I noticed the waitress place a drink two seats down from us at an empty spot. Then she came back a minute later and placed a plate of food there as well…again, no one was occupying that seat. Continue reading “Be Mindful of Your Vibe”
I had on a new skirt, my hair was on point, and I felt great as I entered the arena on the arm of my then longtime boyfriend, Tony. We were there to support a local charity, to socialize with a ton of our friends and business associates, and to watch some police officers and firefighters duke it out in the ring. It was bound to be a great night!
As we made our way through the maze of tables on the floor surrounding the ring, we stopped at many of them to give hugs, shake hands, take pictures and say hello. Everyone was pleasant, and everyone always loved Tony and me. We got many compliments on the energy we brought into a conversation. Continue reading “Me Too”
Every time I weigh in at the gym and the number goes down, I get pissed. No one around me, except my trainer gets it. They all look at me like I’m crazy… Because apparently since I’m a woman, that must mean I only have goals to lose weight and be skinnier.
Nope. Couldn’t be more wrong.
We have worked VERY hard over the past year or so to get a plan in place that keeps me gaining. Because I was too skinny (not a luxury at all, so don’t even say it) I was sick. I wasn’t comfortable in my skin. I was weak. I was unhealthy. It wasn’t a good thing.
