Today one of the most inspiring restaurants @euskaldunastudio with an inspiring team leaded by @vascocoelhosantos announced ether will be closing down for the weekends! That’s a massive step forward improving life quality to hospitality workers and their families. It also helps creativity to rise when everyone get to have a life balance! It’s so refreshing and inspiring! Not that everyone needs doing the same, but that one has the chance of standing up for what they believe, preserving values (like family as a priority) that they stand for! Bless you guys for inspiring me and make me believe that is possible to thrive in this industry paving our own way!

I want to talk about HARD.
I know many people choose to not exercise or eat well because it's hard.
I won't deny that it isn't hard.
My workouts are difficult because I suffer from almost constant left shoulder pain, I have chronic back pain, I LOVE carbs and sweet stuff especially junk, I haaaate drinking water, I suffer from horrible anxiety and depression, I work full time, I'm a busy mother of two.. the list goes on, but I make this 30-45 minutes fit into my day!
I schedule it into my planner - I make it a business meeting with myself.
Your health matters!
Y O U matter!
Choose your hard 💋
🤰🏾Mother=Life...fertility, #pregnancy, loss, birth, delivery, postpartum depression: big emotions. When my daughter was 8 months old and 10 months old I was hospitalized. Being away from her was indescribable. A trapped feeling, trying to prove to the world I am sane. "I am okay." I can take care of her without anyone watching...Every action scrutinize. This is supposed to be natural, I am supposed to know what to do... 🙌🏾🌈Then Grace stepped in...my husband and mother knowing that I needed help. As hard as it was to stand up to me, so I can be well. It was hard to make the decisions to stay medicated while pregnant. To be able to weight all the pros and cons...decisions, prayer, and trusting we made the right choice. 🤱🏽Breastfeeding...trying to feed someone when they screamed, when sleep is a distant memory. Fighting selfishness when all I want to do is #sleep. Knowing my support system is there, friends bringing food, my support calling, checking in, and praying. 👉🏾If you need help it's hard to voice it, I know the struggle...try, try, then try again. When you have people to rally around you and NOT judge you, that's who you trust, that's who you rely on. 👯♀️ I got this shirt at MommyCon, a powerful women named @angelinaspicer shared her story through humor...follow her she is a truth teller. Listening to stories of other women in the room was powerful, healing, and comforting. 🤷🏽♀️I didn't know that P.P.D. would strike twice. My precious Baby boy blessing came, and there were times were I didn't want to admit I was struggling again. I am glad I knew the signs, I used my tools, I spoke up, and got through it a day at a time. 🗣If you know someone who recently gave birth call them, text them even if they don't respond, them knowing you are there for them means the world. 🤗 #Mama, I see you, I hear you and I am there for you. 🥰 PM me anytime.
With love, acceptance, and prayers,

Just because its Tuesday doesn’t mean you can’t “start” now. Don’t let negative self talk discourage you from doing something. Who cares if you can’t do 5 push ups today, start with 1 (imperfect or not the point is DO IT you will learn to improve and correct it along the way)
I work with my nephew on the same principles, he thinks he can’t read chapter books, they’re too hard. He looked ahead and was intimidated by the number of pages in the chapter! He asked “can we read it tomorrow” but why! Now is as good a time as any. So all we did was start with 1 page got through that and it wasn’t so bad. Before you know it he’s reading the entire chapter WITHOUT me. Stumbling on words but figuring it out, asking for help. He persevered and prevailed! And with the same mindset so can you! .
🚨🚨If you have been “thinking” and “saying” you want to adopt a healthier lifestyle but don’t know where to start please comment below with a 🙋🏽♀️ And I will shoot you a message , or simply drop whatever questions or concerns you may have in my DM I am happy to answer them and point you in the right direction! 🏋🏽♀️💪🏾
Just a reminder that I'm cute xo

Did you know that addiction affects 3 primary areas of the brain❓ ▶️ The anticipation of using particular substances starts in the prefrontal cortex. ▶️ Binge drug use and intoxication then affect the basal ganglia. ▶️ The extended amygdala becomes impacted when withdrawal occurs.
This understanding of the brain helps us to not only understand why we’re experiencing specific moments but also what we can do to help restore functioning. 🧠
In a formal treatment program, you’ll be given the opportunity to learn more about the neuroscience behind addiction – and you’ll discover some effective strategies for recovery as well.

Sometimes we have lonely moments, sometimes we have lonely days or weeks, and some of us have gone our whole lifetime without ever really feeling connected. It’s a painful thing to feel unseen. And much bigger than a few affirmations can fix, but I do hope they can provide a little comfort now and again and I hope you find the connection you need sometime soon.💜
I was legitimately so scared to post what I did yesterday. Anytime I post something dark or real it’s typically after my depressive episode is over. It’s hindsight. But yesterday I was still so raw. I am still raw. But seeing your messages and comments of love and being reminded that everyone struggles lifted my soul so much. You’re all wonderful people and I’m so blessed to have a life full of incredible people who hold me up when I’m weak. •
Today is so much better since we’re back to our normal routine. I’m still down and I’m still low, but I know it’ll pass. So today I’m pulling myself up (literally leg day killed me yesterday) by my boot straps and getting things done.
-so I never talk about this publicly, but here it goes.
January 22, 2018
I remember it like it was yesterday.
I had just completed, unsuccessfully, the3rd drug and alcohol treatment center in 20 months. Yup, I was that guy. The one who gets drunk in rehab 🤦🏾♂️. I’m sitting in McCarran Intl Airport waiting on my flight home and I decide, “what’s one more.
Well, within a matter of minutes 1 turned to 5.
That Was the last time.
The 12 yrs leading up to that moment I had been running.
Afraid. Doing whatever I could to fill the void of self acceptance. I would do whatever I could to get my daily fix. I didn’t even have a desire to live. Waking up was the most disappointing part of my day. I just wanted life to be over.
Thankfully, by the grace of God I’m still here. I have found a purpose doin what I can to serve.
The point is this. No matter where you are at spiritually, mentally or physically, you still have a new moment to make a new move and turn everything around.
Is it easy No!
Will it hurt Yes!
But let me tell you this, nothing feels better than waking up being excited to make an impact in someone’s life.
So if you feel like giving up and there’s no hope. If you feel like life is living you
You have 1 LIFE. Live it! ❤️

I am in the best shape I’ve ever been in my life. That’s not the “skinniest” I’ve ever been. I wasn’t in great shape then.. I was tired, but itching to run further. I was hungry but scared to eat. I was alive, but I wasn’t living.
I feel sad for the girl I used to be, sad that she couldn’t see that she was enough. Always looking outside of herself for value.
There is nothing more beautiful than when you prove to yourself just how strong you are. I have been quietly (𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘴𝘰 𝘲𝘶𝘪𝘦𝘵𝘭𝘺 𝘴𝘰𝘻 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘨𝘺𝘮 𝘴𝘱𝘢𝘮 𝘪𝘯 𝘮𝘺 𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴 😂) working on myself and I am so 𝘧𝘶𝘤𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 proud of where I am right now.
I am both mentally and physically stronger. Genuinely happy. Authentically me.
I am not fully healed, I am not fully wise, I am still on my way but what matters is that I am moving forward 🙌🏼.
