Reason #45321 why I love my virtual gym. I’m in Florida and the gym in my parent’s community doesn’t open to guests until 11 AM. I don’t want to wait until 11 AM to work out! That kills the whole freaking day.
.
But now that I am part of a virtual gym, it doesn’t matter what time I am allowed or not allowed to go to their gym because I have access to any one of 700 different classes right on my Ipad at any time I choose! And, I can complete the 6th and final week of the program I’ve been doing right on time with the rest of my friends who are doing it too…no need for FOMO even though I am traveling 😊.
.
So here is a shot of me after I finished my workout this morning…a workout I started at 9:37 AM. I love that I am 100% in control of the what and when of my sweat session…It’s the best of both worlds…I get to stay consistent AND I don’t have to sacrifice enjoying part of a warm sunny day inside of a gym!!! #winwin

What a difference a grout pen makes! This is a temporary solution until we can put new flooring in the kitchen (who knows when that will be 🙄🙄😭😭😭) Personally, I think this *porous* white tile was a bad idea in such a high traffic area.. but it came with the house when we bought it 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

Negative and difficult things happen to everyone and it’s how we respond that makes the difference between success and failure. You get to chose. You can chose to continue to do the few simple disciplines, that if repeated every day will lead to success or you can chose not to. You can chose to get out of bed or hit snooze, you can chose to workout or you can chose to skip it, you can chose to save the $20 or you can chose to spend it, you can chose to work on a project you want to complete or can chose to put it off until tomorrow.
.
The formula is simple- a few simple activities repeated consistently every day leads to success while a few simple errors in judgment repeated everyday leads to being stuck.
.
The past 36 hours have been trying and emotional for me. Every ounce of me wants to chose “not to” but I know that time is going to pass regardless and I’ll either be better than I am today or worse- entirely up to me. So even though I don’t want to, even though in the heat of moment I want to just say “f-it”, I am determined to keep going because I want to continue to be better.

I want to start telling my story. I'll be posting to my story talking about my journey, my chronic pain, my adhd. I want you all to know my motivation for my art, and hopefully somebody resonates with it.

I hate the winter. Once Christmas is over i’m over it and if the sun isn’t shining I find myself in a funk. We went to the playground today for the first time since forever and it was exactly what we both needed 🌞 Spring can’t come soon enough 🌈

two days in a row with this babe.💜 Love the days when I get to be involved with her and school activities. Field trip yesterday and class parent today. Not missing out is the best feeling in the world.

This right here is my WHY.
This is my REASON.
The reason I wake up early and hustle during nap time. This is why I work so hard at building a business from home.

I don’t ever want to miss out on these days because we all know how fast they go by. I don’t ever want her to be upset because mom can’t make it.

This season of life has been difficult but it’s also been the most rewarding and something I’m so thankful for. No matter if it’s a hard day and this babe refuses to nap or show some extra sass, or it’s a good day, I’m so lucky to be able to spend these days together.

They say the days may be long but the years are short and I’m experiencing that first hand.

But not all mamas get the opportunity to be home with their babies and I’m so grateful that I get to.

Making the decision to create a life I wanted to live for myself and my family has been the best thing I’ve done. Taking a chance on myself and an opportunity that has allowed me to be present, have freedom, and has allowed me to help other women like myself do the same.

Cheers to the weekend my friends 💜

Getting Leila to sit still is getting harder and HARDER! Lol
•
My baby turned 11 months yesterday and the countdown has officially begun to her FIRST birthday!!! •
She knows ALL her animal sounds, where her nose is, she says “gracias” and a list of other words.
•
Calling every kid a baby, mooing, and throwing everything she can get her hands on on the floor so she can say “uh oh” are her favorite things to do, she has also started to repeat words we say so we have to watch what we say now 😳
•
Excited for this next month and feeling so blessed to be this little girls mom 💖

Last night I got some really disappointing and discouraging news regarding work. It’s not life changing and things can definitely be way worse but personally it feels like a big setback and I feel crappy and in all honesty, kind of embarrassed about it. After finding out, while away on a work trip, I went through ALL the feelings. First shock, then anger, then more anger, then defeat, then self-doubt, then a stop at the hotel gift shop for skittles (I’m away for work right now too) and by the time I crawled into bed in my hotel room, I was somewhere between reeling and numb.
.
But here’s the other side of all those feelings...you know the skittles I bought at the hotel gift shop...I didn’t eat the whole bag 😛. I mean, I ate more than I would have on a normal day, I’m human after all 🤪🤪 but more than half are still sitting there in all their fruity flavored glory. I didn’t impulsively react (which is BIG for me) and despite getting 3 hours of sleep and having to go onsite at a client for all day meetings, I didn’t hit snooze when my alarm went off. I got up and worked out. Through my health journey I’ve come to realize how good it feels and how much confidence you build within yourself by showing up on the hard days. So today, when I need all the positivity and confidence I can muster, I am proud of myself for not letting the hard win out and proving to myself that even in the face of personal setbacks, #icandohardthings.

tired eyes and a full heart.
yesterday was such a fun experience spent with my valentine i was exhausted when I woke up, but this morning was all about self love and showing up for myself.💗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I workout so I can be the best version of myself.
I workout for my mental health
I workout because I am able to.
I workout because I LOVE MYSELF.

Love yourself because it's the holy grail of happiness.
Love yourself no matter what anyone else thinks.
Love yourself and everybody benefits.
Love yourself and you will have it all.
Love yourself and be grateful for all you are and all that you're becoming.

Have you started a routine this year? Did you know that by now a lot of people have already given up?
Don’t be one of them, let’s do this together.

Happy Love Day💗

I workout for my mental health I workout because I am able to. I workout because I LOVE MYSELF. Love yourself because it's the holy grail of happiness. Love yourself no matter what anyone else thinks. Love yourself and everybody benefits. Love yourself and you will have it all. Love yourself and be grateful for all you are and all that you're becoming. Have you started a routine this year Did you know that by now a lot of people have already given up Don’t be one of them, let’s do this together. Happy Love Day💗 #selflove #selfworth #loveyourself

Daily inspo comin’ at ya. Do ya feel me

What does it mean to you to get good nutrition? 
Does it mean shopping the grocery store every week for wholesome organic ingredients? 
Does it mean spending lots of money on making sure you get the very best? 
Does it mean meal prep for days and days only to do it all over again the very next week? I know for me it looks like that sometimes too, but what I do know is that having these superfood shakes available to me and my family at all times makes it so much easier. 
Whether you are looking for a whey option or a vegan option we have something for everyone. 
Whether you like chocolate or strawberry or vanilla we can make that happen for you too. 
Know that you have choices and that healthy lifestyles can come in many different forms. 
Know that you have me as a support too... it’s kind of my jamm.

Progress is not linear.
.
Rarely is progress made linearly where one day you’re better and the following day you’re a bit better, and so on. Instead, on the way to progress, there are always setbacks, obstacles and self-doubt.
.
I had first hand experience with this this week. In my workout program we evaluate our progress from the week before by seeing how many times we can do 3 particular moves in a min and compare our result to the week before. On Monday, I did fewer on all 3 moves. I tried not to get discouraged but I’m not gonna lie- I was. Today, however, I did significantly more reps in the minute on all 3 moves than I did last week! Admittedly, this is a small and not super meaningful example, but when you are working toward something, the meaning we attribute to even small setbacks can be big.
.
It can be difficult to have the patience for progress to reveal itself and when we experience a setback, it's easy to let the doubt creep in and give up. But in order to keep moving forward in the face of setbacks and disappointment, you have to recognize and accept set backs as part of the process, just normal bumps along the road to your goal. No one has ever had a smooth path toward getting to where they want to be. Focus on the habits you are buiding that will make you progressively better over time. If you can improve on those, then you give yourself the best opportunity to enjoy the road, avoid the all-or-nothing thinking and reach your short and long-term goals.

I mean. Could this be any more true??? How many times do you let our negative def talk get the best of us? 
Think of all the things you are not opposed to the things you are? 
Well STOP IT... stop it right now... You are absolutely capable of anything you dream of. 
You are 100% given the same amount of hours in the day as everyone else. 
Use them. 
Use them to chase ur dreams.

Been working on my mindset a lot these days. 
Aware of my daily habits. 
My discipline in my day to day. 
My thoughts. 
My words. 
The shit I put in my mouth. 
The conversations I have. 
The negative crap I sometimes get caught up in. 
Does it serve me?
Is it moving my life in the right direction? 
Does is serve my family? 
Will it make a positive impact? 
I take a lot of persona responsibility in this. 
I know it’s important. For me. My kids. My hubby. My team. My family.

‘Sup ladies 💙 Aight, enough grandpa spam for the day!

When I went back to school at 40+ to learn makeup artistry, would you believe me if I told you that my greatest challenge was going into class makeup free, as was required? I would literally feel physical pain and be filled with dread and self doubt each morning. On my daily commute to NYC, I hid behind fabulous sunglasses and prayed that nothing would require me to remove them. What you don’t know about me is that for many years, I used makeup as a mask to hide behind. I suffered with awful feelings of insecurity related to childhood trauma and wearing this protective barrier of makeup helped me feel less vulnerable and more in control.
—-
During my time at Makeup Designory, I learned to start appreciating my own beauty in the same way that I could easily see it in others. I would never have expected to achieve that while being forced to go makeup free but, I am grateful for the journey and what it has given me. At 47, I still need to work on quieting the inner critic and it’s sometimes a challenge for me to put myself “out there.” Just five years ago, if someone told me I would someday post photos, go on camera or better yet, leave the house makeup free I would’ve thought they were insane. These days, you’d be more likely to run into me in a makeup free state and (props to personal growth) I wouldn’t be looking to hide from you.
—-
I often equate my work as a makeup artist to be much like that of a healer and I’m grateful to be on a path to help women. I love what I do and the women I connect with because of it. After years of feeling less than, I have found so much love in this field of work through my clients, the cancer patients I volunteer with and my amazing LimeLife family. I’m normally not one to post such personal stuff but, taking my mask off just feels better.
