My adrenaline and endorphins have been on a serious high this week!! And I 👏🏼 AM 👏🏼 LOVING IT 👏🏼 . My body has been tested in strength & my mind has been tested in discipline. Both making me better and showing that when I set my mind on something, I CAN make it happen. . I’ve also been hearing INCREDIBLE feedback from my bossbabe tribe about their own mental and physical shifts over the last 4-6 weeks! ♥️ Today’s news made me EX-FREAKIN-STATIC! My girl has lost 5.5 inches from her body && 9.5 pounds!! WHILE being 1 week behind jn the program due to being sick. . THAT, my friends, is a WIN all around! I love hearing and seeing the progress of others. This lifestyle is a happy one. 😊 • • • • • #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shorty #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #fitfam #fitsburgh #youareapriority #workfromhome

This is the biggest takeaway from some of the training videos I watched today! 🌟 Make actions that are aligned with your goals, your visions, your dreams. If you’re not making those actions and taking those chances, then don’t be surprised that you’re still far away from your dreams. It’s tough truth, and I so needed to hear this today. • • • • • #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shorty #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #fitfam #fitsburgh #youareapriority #workfromhome

Impromptu work from home day due to clinical training being cancelled and being on top of my productivity hours!! Also, let’s be real, I didn’t wanna add more therapy into my week and most of my clients don’t like to schedule for the day of. 🖇 So did I use this as an opportunity to be lazy?? NOPE! I was already WIDE AWAKE 🌤 after my 5:30AM alarm ⏰ and 6:30AM workout. So I made a plan for myself to be as proactive as I can today!!! Guess what?? As a therapist &&& coach! And lemme tell ya, I’ve desperately needed a catch up day like this! 🖇 •• I watched a leadership webinar I earned from helping people in January! •• I completed a client discharge plan! •• I completes TWO narrative assessments! (That’s a big deal, they’re a pain in the ass to do). •• I’ve reached out to people who may want some extra accountability to get started with their fitness goals! •• I’ve done some work on my current challenge group! •• I’m going to watch more leadership videos. 💚 AND! I still have work at Zenergy tonight with my #ZenFam. You never know what life is going to throw your way when you need to change the pace and be productive in a different way. 💫 _____ #socialworker #fitnesscoach #itsalifestyle #proactive #accomplished #pittsburghlife #LAgirl #twentysomething #shortandfierce #workfromhome #therapylife #fitlife #bossbabe #hustle

“Don’t guarantee your failure by quitting.” I read this last night and when DAAAMN 6 words that give a huge mic drop message!! ▫️ I’d also like to add to it though by saying don’t guarantee your failure by quitting OR not even trying. 🔹 You don’t know what you ARE capable of (because let’s be real, you can do ANYTHING) if you don’t even try. ▫️ We all have potential — AND LOTS OF IT!! — We just need to find it within us and surround ourselves with the people who help us bring it out daily. 🔹 Grateful and thankful for my teams who help me out with unleashing my potential so I can help others the way they help me. Because THAT is the ultimate goal— helping others feel happiness with their lives and best selves. • • • • • #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shortandfierce #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #fitfam #fitsburgh #youareapriority

Refeed day, you were good to me! 😘 These were some of my faves of the day!! • Thanks for replenishing my body with the sugars it needed after 5 1/2 weeks of hard work focusing on my physical changes and nutrition habits. • ❌No, I don’t starve myself. ❌No, I don’t deprive myself of tasty foods. ❌No, I don’t eat salads for all meals every day. • 💎I DO portion my meals to fit my health goals. 💎I DO eat every 2-3 hours benefit my metabolism. 💎I DO learn new recipes that fulfill all of my cravings. • So let me ask you now, what’s stopping you from trying out this lifestyle of good food, strong bodies, and happy minds?? 😊 _______________ #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shortandfierce #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #youareapriority #breakfast #waffles #lunch #fruit #dinner #burger

👉🏼👉🏼 Don’t skip something that makes you feel good every day. . I am almost 3 years into my fitness journey and I am in the best shape of my life!! I never thought I’d be at this point. It has been TOUGH. . But I’m doing it. Every day dedicating time to myself, my body, and my thoughts. This is important to me, so I do it. No questions asked. No chance to listen to my excuses. I do it. . I didn’t always have as much discipline as I do now. But as soon as the benefits overpowered the feelings of shame and laziness and sadness about who I was and how I looked, the discipline kicked in a lot more. I know you can do this too! Anyone can! . Let’s put the excuses away and start getting healthier together. What’s stopping you from trying?? _______________ #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shortandfierce #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #fitfam #fitsburgh #youareapriority #transformationtuesday

YOU create your life. YOU create the BEST version of yourself that you want to be. YOU make actions that reflect what you want. . Today, I woke up at 5:30AM on a freakin Saturday (that never happens) because I chose to work toward being the best me possible. 👏🏼👏🏼 And to be that, I needed to stay dedicated to myself and get my workout done before going to work (which was BOMB btw!) 🙌🏼💚 . So I did it. I woke up, made my breakfast, drank my all natural pre-workout, did 36mins of cardio, and got on with my day. (Happy opening day Zenergy PGH)!!! . I’m choosing how to act. I’m choosing who to be around. I’m choosing what to bring and keep out of my life. All for the better! _______________ #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shortandfierce #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #fitfam #fitsburgh #youareapriority

Happy Flex Friday!!! 💪🏼♥️ ~ I have officially made it through ALL the new moves of Phase ✌🏼 today! Congrats to all the ladies who have done it with me and stuck it out this far! We can only keep progressing and getting stronger and leaner from here. ~ “We can really only control and care about our own actions. We can’t control what people think or say or how they choose to feel or act.” _______________ #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shortandfierce #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #fitfam #fitsburgh #youareapriority

This has been an emotionally hard week. Last night I shut down and I broke. I cried. I blamed everything, including myself. I needed to be alone, yet also needed to be comforted. I was wrecked and I’m not fully back together. • This. Happens. I always think it means I’m weak and I’m not allowed to be weak. But, I’m human and I tend to forget I can’t help every family I work with sometimes. Especially this specific one that pulls ALL my heart strings. • So how do I cope? I play music from the minute I wake up. I pour all this emotion into my workouts. I think through my situations as I workout whether I come up with a solution or not. I reflect. I shift my mood. I keep going. _______________ #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shortandfierce #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #fitfam #fitsburgh #youareapriority

#WCW to the boss babe that my alter ego is inspired after!! 💜 Everything about her story, what she advocates for, and how she became as proud and confident as she is now motivates me to try to be a better more confident me every day. • • • • • #confidence #burlesque #woman #queen #fierce #sexy #heels #boots #feelinmyself #dance #bringsexyback #Demiisbae #whatswrongwithbeingconfident #strong #womancrushwednesday @ddlovato

Your life reflects your choices. And at the end of the day it’s your choices and your actions that either progress you or block you from living life the way you want and envision. • Take a look at your life and determine what needs to change, if anything, and make a plan. Maybe it’s your health, maybe it’s your surroundings, maybe it’s your job, maybe it’s the people you allow to have your time, maybe it’s yourself. • Do they live up to your expectations? Are they pushing you toward your goal? Or are they keeping you far from it? • I know this is a hard thing to touch on. Nobody wants to make changes when they’re big and scary. Nobody wants to admit to needing changes. But it’s those big scary changes that can mean so much in the long run. • The hour I give myself every morning to work on myself and change my health and reflect to change my mindset is so incredibly important for me to function well throughout the rest of the day, especially with all the information thrown at me as a therapist. I encourage you to find time in the day to do this for yourself. And if you can’t figure it out on your own, reach out because I am always willing to help. _______________ #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shortandfierce #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #fitfam #fitsburgh #youareapriority

This #TransformationTuesday is a bit different because I HAVE to show you the amazing progress some of my ladies made in the first 26 days of this program!! 💕 Just like me, this is the first time we’re doing this program. For some of us, this is our VERY FIRST program. For some of us, this is the FIRST program we’re going 100% for. Either way, we are doing this together and supporting each other’s big and small accomplishments every single day. 💕 Babe #1: ”My upper body strength was AWFUL and now it's much better and I can support myself better. I feel great! I struggled with feeling good in my body and having energy to even workout. Now I actually have energy and am starting to feel more confident!”” She is DOWN 2.45 inches and 4 pounds! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 💕 Babe #2: “I want to see what my body is capable of.” She is a full time teacher and has enjoyed the workouts but struggled with the timing a bit, BUT she has made great progress and is pushing forward with a different program because we have access to hundreds and she can choose one that fits her schedule. No she’s not failing. No she’s not quitting. She is adjusting and staying focused with a program that better meets her needs at this time, and that takes strength too!! She is DOWN roughly 2 inches!!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 💕 Babe #3: This is her FIRST time committing 100% ALL IN for a program and she is doing this for HER! She’s engaged, just got accepted into nursing school, and wants to live a healthier lifestyle. “My body feels a million times better. I don’t feel groggy most of the day or fatigue. I have way more energy and my digestive system is working the way that it should and I’m feeling way less bloated.” 26 days and this babe is DOWN 10 inches and 5 pounds!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 💕 Congratulations, ladies!!! Thank you for trusting me with your fitness journey. I am so happy to be doing this with you and can’t wait to get through phase 2 feeling even stronger! _______________ #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shortandfierce #girlswithtattoos #sassy

“To live boldly is to choose what you want out of life and then stalk it, chase it, and not rest until you’ve captured it.” • I got tired being the girl who was weak and letting life run her. I got tired of feeling sorry for myself. I got tired of being depressed and feeling out of control of my own freakin life. So I became the girl who was willing to change, become healthier, increase her happiness, become a successful social worker, and find a passion in fitness along the way!! • While I still don’t have control over everything, I’m working on it and that starts with strengthening myself from the inside out and surrounding myself with people who understand and support my goals rather than shoot them down. • Less than 3 weeks until my 2 year coachaversary! I am grateful for this community of uplifting people who are constantly striving to be better and encouraging each other to help themselves and others every single day! 💙 • I have grown so much since opening up to my teams over the last year and I know I have what it takes to help you like they have helped me. _______________ #livewithintention #LAborn #Pittsburghliving #beachbabe #disney #champagneallday #2018 #winedrinker #IPAlover #VTAlum #PittAlum #strongereveryday #adulting #makeup #shortandfierce #girlswithtattoos #sassy #burlesque #therapist #socialworker #mentalhealth #twentysomething #fitfam #fitsburgh #youareapriority
