What do you love most about your work?๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿ’ป . Me? As a trainer, my FAVORITE part about my work is that I get to boss people around (mind you they pay me for this) and give them some of the hardest workouts and exercises to do. And let me tell you if ANY of my clients say โ€œ I canโ€™t! This is too hard โ€œ bet you the next move they do will be harder.J/K. Not really๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Seriously though thereโ€™s nothing more fulfilling than when youโ€™ve worked with someone for a while and they say, โ€œbecause of you Iโ€™m off my meds and pump, which Iโ€™ve been on for 10 years and I no longer need it.โ€ Thatโ€™s the best feeling ever.๐Ÿ’• . Most of my work, training clients, hosting bootcamps, clean eating groups etc is done online and it's freaking awesome to know I'm still able to make a significant impact in others lives.๐Ÿค— . . Pic info: Rob and I just wrapped up Day 5 workout from our Summer Bootcamp catalogue. Itโ€™s was leg day and holy moly is was ruff!! We sweat soo freaking much! Loved every sec of it!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ

CAUTION! I'm freaking loud AF in video. . This is Day 4 of my Summer Bootcamp and today's shoulder workout was super hard. . I used btw 10 lbs to 17.5 lbs. WTF was I ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ˜ณ . I won't be able to lift my hand to do shit all weekend long.๐Ÿ˜ฉ . . For those seeking tips and more info on how to gain muscle, here's where to start: Resistance training is a must, and if you can lift heavy, do so. Use a weight that allows you to feel serious burn (not intense pain) by the 8 rep. Performing at least 3 sets of each exercise. Make sure that you're consuming enough protein to promote muscle growth, repair and recovery. I drink my recovery drink daily to help with that. Makes my daily protein intake easier and less stressful for me. 20g is best per meal..around 80g total of protein intake per day. Lastly please get enough rest daily/weekly. Remember your muscle grows during rest so it's important to take around 1-2 days off from your workouts per week! If you don't you can actually do more harm than good to your body overtime. If you want you do something on weekends, depending, foam rolling if perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ and beginner yoga or even take a nice walk and enjoy the outdoors. . Hope this is all helpful. Tag a friend ๐Ÿ’•

Darling remember how FREE you feel at this very moment. ๐Ÿ’• Today was perfect in every way. ๐Ÿ’• It felt so good to just make the decision to take the morning off from work and head to the beach ๐ŸŒŠ which by the way is 15 mins away from where I live on the train ๐Ÿš‚ ๐Ÿ’• Being outdoors for the summer is my fav. I enjoy soaking up the sun, the sand, smell of the ocean ๐ŸŒŠ ..ALL outdoor activities and today was perfect๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ’• I will go back again. At least a few more times before the summer is up!๐Ÿค— . . Do you enjoy going to the beach as well?

Heโ€™s back!๐Ÿ˜ƒ . Have you guys ever seen my LIVE video talking about how Rob and I meet? It was actually at the gym over 15 years ago and still to this day I boss him around during his workouts! ๐Ÿ˜œHe still says " okay, okay I got it, I got it. Just give me a sec. F&CK! ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's been well over year since we've actually done a program together from beginning to end. Most of the programs we've started together were an hr long, exercising 6 days a week and since Rob works mostly 7 days a week, that would throw him off schedule and hard for him to stay consistent. Not this time around. We've found the PERFECT solution / program (for Rob) as he said. " OMG these workouts are only 40 mins? Thank God!" Well be working out JUST 4 days a week and I'm looking forward to the 3 rest days and not having to wake up on weekends to workout anymore.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜Š Which is also perfect for Robs work schedule. Weโ€™re inviting YOU to join us! Bring a buddy along too! With your investment...Meal plans, recipes, 34 diff workouts of course & equipment included. Can't beat that!! Requirements from you!๐Ÿ’ฏcommitment for 8 weeks! Not satisfied after the first 30 days, money back! Absolutely NOTHING to lose. Interested??

The excitement you feel when you just crushed Day 1 of your Summer Bootcamp workouts! #Priceless It felt so good to wake up this morning, give praise and thanks for a new week. Plus knowing that your workout from now on, at least for the next 8 weeks will be around 30 mins or so... let just say I was pumped!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜„ . Itโ€™s ALL new workouts, ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธjust released today! So I didnโ€™t know what to expect, all I knew, we were about to lift some heavy weights! My friend Joyell joined me this morning (check my IG stories) via zoom, video for the kick off. This is my 23rd program that Iโ€™m doing from Beachbody and I know this is going to be right up there as my TOP 5 favโ€™s. I never thought I would of lasted this long without going to the gym. I was a gym rat, going 6-7 Days a week. I miss it, but I see now, itโ€™s not needed for results! One day Iโ€™ll go back for sure. Not today โ˜บ๏ธ Goals for the next 8 weeks, during this Summer Bootcamp: โ€ขshow up daily, staying consistent. โ€ขstart my day a little earlier, staying consistent with my morning routine. Prayer, meditation, tapping, journaling, PD โ€ขgetting back to my 6am early work hrs โ€ขfollow meal plan, sticking with 2B system which has helped me drop 7lbs โ€ขchallenge myself and lift heavier than before โ€ขget stronger mentally and physically โ€ขget shit done! Face fear and do it ANYWAY โ€ขstop bullshitting on my goals #JUSTDoIT . . Also reminder, for those that wasnโ€™t able to start with me today, you can join whenever you want! Day one is when youโ€™re ready, to get shit going. I got your back! . #SolutionsNOTExcuses

If life knocks you down make sure you land on your back. Because if you can look up you can get up. -Les Brown . . SWIPE ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿพ to see today's #homeworkouts_4u I hope you give them a try and let me know. . Today's workout was Total Body. It was support to be 50 mins, but I ended up doing the 30 min version. Most of the exercises were compound movements which allows you to workout different muscle groups at the same time. #MyFAVORITES . Each move, was done for a total of 15 reps, each side, for 2 sets. I used medium weights, which for me is around 12-15lbs. . I switched up today mainly because my ass is tired!! I've been doing hr long workouts since January 15th and my body needed a break! I didn't want to not workout so I did the shorter version. Still killa though๐Ÿ˜ณ . THANK GOD my Summer Bootcamp starts next week for myself and my clients because that whole new program is different. I'll still be weight training and lifting heavy, with some HIIT cardio and ab work, BUT....my workouts will ONLY be 30 mins, 4 days per wk. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸพMajor difference from 1hr long/6 days a week. . When you guys workout, how long are your workouts and what you normally do?

Confession! . Iโ€™m not always perfect when it comes to my workouts! I know, shocking right?! โ˜บ๏ธ . Seriously though, as a trainer and fit pro, what I do have is consistency, NOT perfection. . Every single day I strive to be the best I can by showing up and making ME, a priority. Its important to give back to you first. . I struggle just like the next person. As much as I love working out, and Iโ€™ll say Iโ€™m pretty fit, I stop, take breaks, I even stare at my trainer, thinking are you mad..my ass hurts and you want me to do what!?๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคจ . Iโ€™ve been on this lifestyle, my whole life, and I share with my clients ..donโ€™t focus on what you canโ€™t do when it comes to your fitness, focus on what you can and be consistent with it. You can apply that to anything in life. . Todayโ€™s workout especially was super duper hard. It took me an 1hr and 15 mins to do a 50 min workout. . I stopped so many times, I wanted to just say, F it, workout done! . You know what I did? I made myself go LIVE on fb and finished up the workout. With people watching me, you canโ€™t quit -right?! You shouldnโ€™t at least. . I wasnโ€™t hurting, injured or anything, I was just in my head, tired of the long ass workouts, which Iโ€™ve been doing since Jan 15th and ready to finish already. . But I made a promise to myself and of course to my clients, who look to me for support, and accountability... no matter what you start.. finish it! Youโ€™re not quitting. . I didnโ€™t quit!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ . Now I can proudly say, I have 3 workouts left, before my Summer Bootcamp starts next week! Woohoo!! Those workouts will ONLY be 30 mins, and Iโ€™m exercising 4 days a week! #happydance . Btw will you be joining me next week?๐Ÿ˜Š

Who are you showing up today for? Family, Kids, Your Job, Friends...Yourself? If you asked yourself this same question and you're last on the list, why is that? Why do we always put others and things before us, thinking that's the best option? When I mentor, mostly women and moms, they tend to set aside all their goals and dreams for family. Which sounds cool in theory, but really isn't. Over the years as a fit pro and business mentor, its crazy how this career, having my own fit business has shown me that if you want to truly give your family and love ones the BEST in life, putting YOU last is the worst possible choice. They, for the most part, aren't happy with how they look, they're always tired, stressed, some even have negative body image of themselves with low self esteem, and or have HBP, sleep apnea, negative self talk....YET, they put themselves last! I'm going to share with you a little secret..your kids, wife, husbands, friends, see it. You not fooling anyone, even if you're trying to. Trust me when I say they rather you make yourself a priority than not! You're not being selfish if you do so. That's a liars trap we fall into. I'm not saying you're going to wake up tomorrow morning and knock it out the park, but once you begin making YOU #1 on your list, it helps with long term success of your goals. Here's how to start: - begin with just 10-15 mins doing some sorth of self meditation. Pay attention to your inner chatter. Correct all negative talk and thoughts focusing on your blessings no matter how small it may seem to you at that time. - If you don't exercise, start. Even if you do just 30 mins a few days a week, begin. Need help with figuring out where the heck to start? You can join my Summer Bootcamp. It begins next wk. - Replace at least one meal and one drink a day with something healthy. Small steps -right?! - MOST importantly DONT SKIP any of these steps. This is a process and it's not about being perfect, but just beginning and showing up for yourself every single day. If this was helpful in ANYWAY tag a friend๐Ÿ’•

Where my #weekendwarriors at? . Just wrapped up day 68, week 11 of my workout program. It was all about the booty today, hense why I'm showing them cheeks ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜œ . It was another workout where I had to lift heavy, using anywhere around 20 lbs - 35lbs for 10 reps each exercise. I performed 3 sets of each move. . Iโ€™m so sore and tired right now. EXCITED that tomorrow's rest day! Believe me when I say I'm not moving until Monday! Lol ๐Ÿ˜† . What's on your workouts schedule for today?

While I was journaling this morning I was listening to the YouTube channel, Law of Attraction Coaching and Tony Robbins was the speaker , sharing on how you should NEVER doubt yourself and capabilities. Half way though the recording he said " If I'm committed, there's always a way to make it work " I had to stop writing immediately. I was like wow he's soo right! When we truly want something in life, nothing stops us from getting it. Well do whatever it takes to make it happen. Even beg, borrow or steal. Like a 2 year old kid that wants to climb a bar tool. You know it isn't safe, they will fall...but they don't care what you say, they climbing that damn chair. Every time I doubt myself, procrastinate..make excuses. I must ask, do you truly want this, or not? . .

Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are too busy living our fears. Les Brown This hit me in the gut....HAARD! Fear has held me back for so long. Fear of what others would say, how I would be looked at, even how my life would change. I've held myself back because of the unknown of how it would all work and what if it didn't work. It was getting me no where. I got sick and tired of saying I want more out of life, I wish I could travel, move to a nicer neighborhood, buy my dream car ๐Ÿš— Wishing I could help my family etc and I was doing nothing about it. The ONLY movement that was happening in my life was my mouth! Talk and absolutely NO ACTION...or.. I was half assing, playing it safe. Something had to give. I either make a move and start going after what I want..... or just admit that I'm not worthy or important enough for it. Because that's really what it means when we don't bite the bullet and do the damn thing. We are surcoming to fear and excuses, not feeling we are worth it and that's a hard pill to swallow. Constant mantra... Feel the fear and do it ANYWAY. Letโ€™s all agree to do that. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Happy 4th of July ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐ŸŽ†๐Ÿ—ฝ๐ŸŽกโ›ฑ Let today be a day of gratitude and happiness. Really zone in on the significance of today. We are FREE!! We are free to choose and be whomever we want to be. Not everyone can say that even in 2018. Our freedom was bestowed upon us by those who came before us. They fought for that freedom even 7 years after America declared their Independence. Honor that gift. Let today be a day not only to celebrate with friends and family, eating BBQ, enjoying โ˜€๏ธ and fireworks. Choose today as the starting point to be brave enough to chase after your dreams and goals even if youโ€™re scared. #doitanyway

Over 40, feeling 25, most days when my knee don't bother me from all the crazy long workouts, looking 18. Well...maybe not quite 18 ๐Ÿ˜œBUT feeling pretty damn good today. #loveyourselffirst Getting ready to do workout # 150 of 2018 ๐Ÿ˜ I know some may think, HOLY SHIT that's a lot of working out. But remember, I only workout an hr a day, 6 days a week. I don't do extra and the days I have cardio, it's 35-42 mins. Yep I check because I'm not a cardio fan. I'm super consistent with my workouts and making my health a priority. I may have days where I'm stressed, anxious, feeling like ass, and just wanna eat ice cream. One thing I don't stop doing is showing up for those workouts. #healthiswealth So... #LetsDoThisSHIT I got legs today. #BootyWorkout

What's up everybody!? One thing I want to share with you is that I may be lazy at times and procrastinate on a lot of stuff, but one thing I don't mess around with are my workouts. I don't care how tired, sick or shitting I feel, I get it done. Today was one of those days where I wasn't at ๐Ÿ’ฏ I planned on doing two workouts this morning. My regular workout (which was an hr long) and our sneak peek workout, that was 30 mins of the New program Iโ€™m starting. Well...my freaking friend (ladies you know what I'm talking about) decided to make a visit. Iโ€™m like SHIIIITT!!! ๐Ÿ˜ซ WTF!! #whytodayB I immediately switched my thinking.

Cauliflower Heaven ๐Ÿš . I've been eating paleo now for about 4, almost 5 years. I have to admit cauliflower was something I never ate. When I say never I mean NEVER! Now, I can't get enough of it. I use it like reg rice. Like you should. I've eaten it with curry chicken, stew chicken, sushi ๐Ÿฃ etc. I eat it at least 3 times a week. What about you. Have you tried it before?

Are you a drinker..Of smoothies, shakes, green drinks etc? Iโ€™ve always been. I use to make a mean green juice ๐Ÿฅค with fennel, ginger, spinach, kale, apples ๐Ÿ...OMG it was sooo good! No body could of touch my drink. Until I found this. ALL the ingredients I use to add in my own green drink, I even make for my clients was in this stuff plus more. Besides green tea, spinach, kale, rose hips, pomegranate and camu camu which by the way helps guard against cancer and supports in a healthy blood pressure. I discovered luo han guo (used in traditional Chinese medicine) which boots your immune system, prevents sore throat and coughs. No wonder I never get sick!๐Ÿ˜ฒ Weโ€™ve all heard of matcha ๐Ÿต powder which is rich in fiber, enhances mood, burn calories etc. Light bulb๐Ÿ’กmoment. Iโ€™m like dude, ummmm...why are you buying all these extra ingredients to add to your green drink ๐Ÿค”when youโ€™ve got this right here. 6 plus years and I havenโ€™t made a green drink since. Well, not like before. No need to.

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. My weekend was pretty relaxing for the most part. I did get some work done. Worked on a NEW un-boarding system for my business and clients. I can't wait to share with you. I have a few more tweaks left, but I'm super excited. I know within the past week I've gotten some new followers and lost a few, Thank You ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ How did most of you find me? A - Instagram B - In person C - facebook It's only fair now that we get to know each other. Don't you think?!๐Ÿ’ญ A little About Me: 1. Most obvious, I hope ๐Ÿ˜‰ just by watching my page, Iโ€™m a health and fitness pro and a online fitness coach. I work with mostly women (and some men) on their health and fitness journey and also mentor those that want to have an online fitness business. 2. My goal everyday is to inspire, motivate, add value, build relationships with you all. I want my page to be a place that shows others, they are unstoppable and to never quit going after what they want in life. 3. I might have a slight addiction to YouTube. Natural Hair video, Lord I can't stop. Even makeup and wig channels suck me right in. I tell myself lies.. "you're only going to watch just a few." WELL...ummmm ...that always turns into an hr or so later. Trying to cut back ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜œ Key word.. tryin. ๐Ÿ˜† I do go on every morning and listen to the 'Be Inspired' channel. It's really good! You guys gotta check them out. Ever heard of them? #30DaysOfSC

You can be successful at anything, if others donโ€™t believe in you. What you canโ€™t do is be successful if you donโ€™t believe in yourself. #RealTalk Iโ€™m learning that every single day. What I believe in, my value and worth is waaaay more important than what others think. Do I think Iโ€™m capable. Heck yeah. Itโ€™s something I have to work on constantly. What I wonโ€™t do is let others tell me I canโ€™t. Show them nothing will stop you from succeeding. . .

There nothing quite satisfying like staying super consistent with your health and fitness journey. I made the same promise to myself this year, I did last year. No matter what program I'm doing, once I commit to it, I'm going to finish it. It's so easy for me to say, Im old, I ain't young no more. Some people have told me. I really don't need to go that hard. I can skip a few days, pick the easier workout etc..Take it easy, I'm already in shape. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค” What I've learned is cheating myself, or taking the easy way out, don't really get you what you want. Let me tell ya it can be brutal sometimes. Yes I'm not 20 no more. I may look at a workout or move and say hell naw that shit hard, BUT when I actually accomplish it, it's the best feeling ever!! The BEST of BESTEST (yes I made that up๐Ÿ˜) feeling ever is I'm actually stronger, healthier and fitter NOW, than I was in my 20's๐Ÿ˜‰ . . - I woke up today giving praise and thanks for health and strength feeling like a BADASS - Iโ€™ve got ONLY 19 workouts left of 80day program (the 2nd Round I'm on) I started since January 15th. This is June 21st, ain't quit! - It feels great to know I'm step closer to going from 1 hr long workouts , 6 days a week to working out for 30 mins, 4 days a week! - I down 7 freakin lbs since May 2nd ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ I went from 156.4 lbs to 149.4 as of this morning. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿง—โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ My knee and back pains decreased ALOT. - oh and itโ€™s #flexfridays do you see those gunz ๐Ÿ˜‰ #over40feeling20

We have to stop letting what we think other people will think predict the shit we do. Why are so many of us first instinct when launching a new venture or thinking about one, immediately say " I don't want my followers, my family, my friends to think or feel _________________. " #beentheredonethat Let me ask you these questions, I've learned to ask myself: - are these people we are so concern about living their dream life? - are they happy with their work and worth? - are they financially abundant and never stress about money and or finances? - are they super positive and always go after what they want no matter what others think? - are they at their goal weight, traveling the world, driving their dream car, free to do what they want when they want etc etc..? If you answered NO to any of those questions, why do you give them so much thought and power? Trust me, ALL the successful experts, celebrities, millionaires, billionaires that you follow and admire, they sure don't give a F$&K about what YOU THINK..Neither should you! As @rupaulofficial said and I'm sure a lot of other people have said the same thing.. What Other People Think Of You is None of Your Business. ' What you think of YOURself is all that matters. MOST important! - Do you desire more out of time, craving something bigger, better and different? Are you doing what you love? Do you believe in you? #YOUareWORTHYofMORE

I have the most comfiest work space on the planet! 500 cushions is a must ๐Ÿ˜›to sit on, lean on and sometimes lay on when I get tired. ๐Ÿ›‹ I know it's best for me to sit at a desk and chair but in my small NYC apartment that takes up too much space and like I mentioned I need my cushions. ๐Ÿ› In this little space, this is where the magic happens. Not the bow chica wow wow magic, ๐Ÿ˜† (get your mind out the gutter) but this is where I connect with, email, coach, mentor, work on projects and train all my clients. ๐Ÿ’ป I remember when I use to wake up some days 4:45am to train my 6am clients. I had to give myself enough travel time on the train and bus, so I wasn't late. โฑ My days use to be super long traveling from client to clients training them in their homes, covering sports events and practices during evenings. I also worked as an Athletic Trainer, so my days ended anywhere btw 8pm and 9pm. ๐ŸŒš If anyone ran late for a practice or training session that means I wouldn't get home until 10pm. I did that for 13 plus years on REPEAT, 8 days a week! YEP you read that right. 8 Days a week! Thats how much I worked. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ I loved what I did. Working with others in health, sports and fitness has always been my passion, BUT I was getting burnt out. It started to wore me out. ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ Now I'm still able to do exactly what I love in my safe spare. Anywhere actually, once I got internet/wifi. ๐Ÿ“ก I'm happier now and less stressed and tired. ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿพ I have triple the amount of clients in my online bootcamp, I'm growing a team of other Fit Lovers like myself all over the world and to do so I don't need to dress up, wear shoes or shower if I don't feel like it. I do shower though, just in case my coaches and clients are reading ๐Ÿ“– this! I ain't nasty! Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . #30DaysofSC #workflowselfie

We don't always get what we want (relationship, financial abundance, job etc) because without even knowing it we keep pushing it away with negative thoughts and self doubt. . We can't keep sending mixed messages to the Universe (God). If you want it, claim it and have unwavering faith it will happen. Emotional trauma is a bitch and if we keep thinking negatively, guess what, that's what you'll get. . It's time we get out of our way. Claim it. Go after what you want. . Trust that God, the Universe supports you. You are worthy of living the life YOU want. #YOUhaveThePower . .

My FIRST love! ๐Ÿ’• If your father is still alive and kicking, no matter what, make sure you call him, hug him if possible and let them know you love him. ๐Ÿ’• Its crazy to think that this year marks 37th years since my dad disappeared at sea. ๐Ÿ’• I was just a little kid when he went fishing with 6 other friends and never returned. My dad loved fishing and being at sea and that particular day there was suppose to be a storm or tornado, can't fully remember, BUT he still went fishing with his friends even though my mom didn't want him to. ๐Ÿ’• I didn't fully understand at the time what it went when my family told me he's gone and never coming back. I was too young to understand. All I knew was he never came back! NONE of the men he went fishing with cane back. My family and the lives of 6 other families was changed forever. ๐Ÿ’• Writing this post brings a smile to my face because I remember how amazing and living my dad was. I was his little girl. And my heart breaks, tears because I miss him so much. ๐Ÿ’• It was tough growing up without my dad. I had my brothers, sisters and my mom, but it's different when a little girl doesn't have her daddy in her life! He treated me like his little princess. Couldn't be daddies litter girl anymore. They say boys needs their dad, but girls do to! ๐Ÿ’• I remember vividly as a little kid when my dad came home from work he use to pick me up so easily and swing me around, hugging and kissing me hello. I also use to love standing on his feet as he walk around and dance with me. I felt safe with him. And, at a young age it was all gone. ๐Ÿ’• I look at this young picture of him and wondered what would my life be like if he was still alive. Would I've ever moved to the US. Would I have my business. Be a trainer. Would I have kids. I often wonder those things when I think of him. ๐Ÿ’• He was soo handsome. My father was a fancy dresser and never looked out of place. ๐Ÿ’• I love you daddy and I hope every day I make you proud. Holding you in my heart always and forever.๐Ÿ˜˜ ๐Ÿ’•

There's nothing more perfect than unraveling your twistout after setting them over the weekend, and 5 days later it's fluffy, feels super soft, and juicy. All my natural hair sistas (&bros) know what I'm talking about. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #NaturalHairLove #BESTfeelingever . Just last month I celebrated 4 years being natural and I can confess this is something I NEVER thought I would have done. . Iโ€™ve had relaxed hair since I could remember. I think I got my first relaxer at the age of 8. I was super young and had no idea growing up what my natural hair was like. . I use to be the girl that would get her hair relaxed every 6 weeks bone straight and then, this is the best part.... cover my own hair with a weave. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ I did that shit for yeeaarsss. . NO MORE! I can 100% say that with confidence. . The weave I may still get from time to time. BUT a relaxer ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿพ....those days are over baby! I love my hair now sooooo much!

Have you gotten any work traditions? . Lately I'm all about finding simplicity and fun with the work I do. I love connecting with other people that's excited and passionate about motivating and helping others conquer their life. People that's hungry for more and ready to do the work to make it happen. For me that's centered around fitness. . I know life itself has it stresses and at times the stupidest things can throw us off keel, so this summer Im so focused on taking more time for me and doing what I enjoy. . NYC winter โ„๏ธ can be brutal at times so when the snows melted and it's about 80 โž•degrees out, that's heaven for me and my whole energy level changes. . In the summer I enjoy going to the park, or pool, just being outside getting a tan, soaking up some sun and taking an hr for myself. Sometimes I read a book or people watch. Ill be honest I don't really go in the water. Just being outdoor recharges me. .

People often ask me how I do it? . I've been on this journey for years. I just simply refer to it as my lifestyle. . Fitness ...working out, eating clean, lifting heavy when I can, isn't something I do for a few months, here and there, stop, fall off track and start up again. It's my passion! ๐Ÿ’•it! . 100% of the workouts I do are done at home. My choice. I haven't been to a gym in over 8 years. I stopped for many reasons. - I like expensive gyms and here in NYC I didn't want to pay $100 membership anymore. - I don't like traveling on the trains much and where I live no gyms are close by which means I have to travel to the gym. Ummmm NO! ๐Ÿ˜œ - when it's 5 or even 30 degrees out, I don't like going out in the cold to travel to the gym. - working out at home and having a home gym makes my life simple. I don't have to think or wonder, what muscle group I'm working today, how much weight I lift etc. The systems and programs I do lay it all out for me. Even though I'm a trainer, I don't always want to have to wonder about my workouts, just my clients. - BEST part about working out at home for me is I can roll out of bed , don't have to stress to get dressed and get it done. - my FAV! Save myself a shit load of money ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพbtw expensive gyms, traveling expenses, both for Rob and I tally $400 dollars a month and what if we starving after the gym and buy food outside ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ง...you get the picture. It works perfectly for me. . Workout Info for today: - we took it outside for a 30 mins jog session - Rob started the pre workouts (which hell be doing for the next 4 weeks) for the NEW program were starting July 16th today, so I decided to join him. - it was 20 mins ๐Ÿ˜of Chest and Back. Couldn't pass that up! #ICrushedIt - I'll be back with my Hr long workouts tomorrow, while Rob enjoys his 20 mins session ๐Ÿ˜ซ. It's okay, I'm almost done. Just 4 1/2 wks left! .

My pre workout, its non negotiable. . It's falls in line right after my morning prayers and meditation. I usually drink it while journaling and doing personal development, which takes me about 15 mins and that's how long it takes for my pre workout to kick in, before I kick butt! . It's taken me years to finally find a pre workout that doesn't make me feel jittery, like my heart is about to explode, nauseous or leave a nasty after taste. . It actually tastes pretty amazing.

Don't limit yourself. Don't always lead with excuses. We can be our worst enemy and road block to success. . I'm broke I'm tired I could never do that I have a lot on my plate right now I could never stick with workouts like that I'm fat That's too hard . Have you ever heard the saying, " If you fight for your limitations, they are yours? " . That's saying is soo true. If you're always finding an excuse to everything as to why you're not where you want to be, then guess what, you'll never get to where you want to be. . I'm not saying it's going to be easy getting to where you want to be and living the life you want to live, but it's damn sure the time to start taking the steps needed to get to where you want to go. . Trust me it helps no one including yourself to be stuck in the same position day after day. I've experienced that. . What I've learned is, success isn't all about you! The more success to achieve in whatever your hearts desire, the more success your love ones, people you cherish in your life benefits from it. . So when you feel those limiting beliefs, self doubt & excuses, because that's what they are, creeping into your thoughts, SHUT THEM UP! . Work on seeing how freaking amazing and strong you are. Personal development is so crucial. Journaling, meditation, listening to podcasts..anything that uplifts your spirits and belief. Pick one or all and DO IT DAILY!! Because at the end of the day, your growth, YOUR abundance isn't only affecting you, it's affecting those you love. . If this inspire you or helped you in anyway. Tag a friend ๐Ÿ’•

Iโ€™m learning to not let what others say about me define me. . Iโ€™ll admit itโ€™s not easy. You need to have a strong sense of self love and worth, that you have to work on constantly. . There is nothing more fulfilling in life than doing what makes you happy, even if it goes against the norm of society. . . Really pay attention to those that doubt you, that share their own insecurities and fear with you. Because thatโ€™s what it is when they say, you canโ€™t , thatโ€™s dumb, or that only works for certain people, etc etc. They wasnโ€™t strong enough to do it themselves OR they let others depict their future and or let fear control them. . . Life is what you make it. Live it the way YOU want to live. . .

Had to share ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸพWith anything, progress is slow in the beginning. . . A rocket ship uses more fuel in the first few mins of flight than it does the rest of the trip. It eventually breaks free of the pull of gravity. The hardest part is getting off the ground. . . Your old ways and old conditioning, it's weighting you down. . . Have you ever wondered why successful people become more successful, the rich becomes richer, the 'lucky' becomes luckier? I have! . . It's because of consistent execution. They don't wait! They don't dwell too long on anything. They have momentum. They don't let negativity or fear keep them from pursuing anything! I'm working on that. . . That's why it's soo important I start my day by taking care of me, mentally and physically. I set the intention for how I want things to go. Yes, stuff happens that's out of our control, BUT we actually do have power on how we react to it. . . Stay committed, focused and grounded. Have trust and faith in your worth. #YouCanDoThisToo - Sean Phelps . .

Made it through workout, even though half way I didn't feel like finishing. . . YES... I know it's hard to believe, but even though I love working out, I have my days where I don't feel like doing shit! Just want to sleep in and hide under the covers. . . BUT, being tired, stressed, anxious, having 509 things to do or just plain ole lazy..won't cut it. I can assure you, that won't get you to what you want. I've personally never felt worst after doing a workout. . . I know a lot of you get discouraged easily, because you want to see results! . . Here's a little secret I've learned over the years, and it took me a long ass time to see it. BUT, the ONLY way you won't get results is if you quit! If you choose to quit, that doesn't mean what you were doing wasn't working, it means you quit. . . Have patience. ALOT of it. Taking the steps that's needed one day at a time.

What I love lost about my day is starting it by taking care of me first! My sense of well being - sanity lies in the foundation of how I start my day and continue to feel throughout the day. I dedicate 30 mins every morning, even before I press play with my workouts to pray, meditate, journal and learn something new. Iโ€™m either working on developing a stronger sense of self esteem, self worth, becoming a better mentor etc. During this mornings workout, I became emotional. Iโ€™m not sure why, but just staring crying, thinking of my mom and brother. I show up every day and workout in memory for them no matter what! Wishing they were here to do this with me.

I don't always track and share my progress month by month or even week by week. Ive been through my own 'transformation ' years ago, dropping a total of 25 lbs. I gained that extra weight, among other things when mom passed away. I went though a state in my life where I didn't really give a crap, about what I ate, in secret. To everyone that knew me I was still working out, but privately eating pizza, Chinese general Tao chicken, fried wings and my fav cheese doodles ...DAILY! I wasn't HEALTHY at all. I slowly gained weight and that lead to me all of a sudden, over 30 living in pain. Emotionally and physically. If you've ever lost your mom, you know that's one of the worst pain you can ever experienced and never get over. There were days I would cry because I was in so much pain, losing my mom, plus the extra weight gain didn't help my back and my knees. Aleve and I were best friends. I also struggled , and still do (much less Praise God) from time to time with panic attacks. Internally I was a hot mess! I often tell people my mom came to me and said "what are you doing? This is not how I remember my child" She knew me my whole life as someone that loved working out and being healthy. At a very young age (I think I was 5) I would tell everyone, let's workout. Eat this, eat that and to know I wasn't making my health a priority fully, made her mad. That was a turning point for me. It's been 12 years and I've never looked back or stopped! Even after my brother passed away in Nov I didn't let myself fall into that hole. Every workout, every time I feel lazy, stressed, don't really wanna do shit, I remember how proud my mom and brother use to be of me. They are no longer here to do it, so I do it for them. I'm about to start Week 19 of this program. It's my 2nd Round with Phase 2 starting tomorrow. My goals: - show up for myself no matter what - get stronger, fitter and overall healthier - share with everyone how important they are, and worthy of the best! . . . I know someone would ask. I am 5'10, weighting 153 lbs and over 40!

Day 22/80 of Round 2 is done!! . What I've loved most about these programs I'm doing is I have control of how much food I eat (noticed I mentioned that first ๐Ÿ˜‰) , how long my workouts are and how much weight I lift! It's so simple and easy to adapt into your day to day life. It always baffiles me when others say I don't have time to workout and or eat healthy. Are you kidding me!!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ I don't care how busy your life is and what you have to do, nothing trumps your health! 30 mins is all you need. A fellow Fit instructor shared on her story, and I agree with her.. "since when is it acceptable making your health a priority, negotiable? " I've lost family members and clients that use those exact excuses. No time. Too busy! So when I hear people say that to me, it drives me freaking nuts!

What seems impossible today will one day become your warm up. . . When I first started this program, 115 days ago, using two resistance bands , much less heavy resistance was out of the question.

B- seeing how much stronger I've become , doing things that I didn't or couldn't do in my 20's makes me feel like a #BadAss . . . . - 10 reps each side - 3 sets - 2 heavy resistance bands. You can use one or none. Start at your fitness level. - go nice and slow

I'm not even going to freaking lie to you. I haven't even fully dived deep into this new Nutrition system yet! I'm waiting to start with my group next Monday. . . . I've only been implementing two parts of the philosophy and this girl right here is down from last Wednesday, 156.6lbs to 153.6lbs as of this morning! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’• . . . I know someone would ask, I'm 5'10, eating 5 times a day and youve seen I don't eat little, so I'm not starving. I don't count my calories, so I don't know how much I'm eating. . . . I haven't changed my workouts , my body is just adjusting to how it sees fit. My ideal weight where I'm comfortable is around 145-148 so I guess that's where I'm heading. . . . My point of sharing this is if I'm ONLY implementing 2 of the steps, and I'm already 'fit', imagine what your body could do! . . . This shit works!! All you have to do is start. It's never to late to start! Want to join me?

Week 3, Round 2/ Day 17/80 . I was telling my friend the other day, everyone is always curious At to how Iโ€™m still goin. The difference btw you (them) and me is that I donโ€™t have an end date. I donโ€™t workout or eat healthy for an event, a few months or even summer. I do what I do because its better to do and not. My health is non-negotiable to me. Tired or stressed, it works for all those systems ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜‰ . My mission is to help you see that living a life where you feel amazing in your skin is possible. . Youโ€™ll get the results you want ONLY if you donโ€™t quit! #RealTalk . #Fitover40 โ˜บ๏ธ Your turn

Who you are, how you show up, how you act, love and represent yourself cuz your greatest source of influence and people will, without even knowing it, mirror your lead. You are on stage at all times. Every room you enter, every conversation you engage in, everywhere you are, you are being watched by those around you. Use it for good. Use it for enlightenment. Use it for encouragement. Use it to make a positive difference in the world around you.

Had to repost! Remember investing in your health is not an expense. The true expense will eventually come when you don't make the investment in your health now! The expense of giving up feeling confident in your own skin, the expense of not having the energy just to do day to day activities, playing with your kids, the expense of doctors bills or medication for lifestyle diseases. You are worth the investment. Thereโ€™s no time like the present. Nothing is more valuable than your health! #FitOver40 . . . . .
