How many of us, before our debt free journeys, believed living off of less than what we make was not possible?! I sure did 🤦🏻♀️
I’m so happy to see him this happy since his operation. We went out for a couple of hours with our family. I’m so grateful to still have him by my side. 💕🙏🤗 #babysteps
thank you @mama_nana25
for always throwing the beat parties and including us😆
hospital creation. I don't love the top, it didn't quite emerge as I thought. I've been feeling really off the last couple days. I suspect it's the ensluaght of medications I've been on for 3 weeks. But I do like the bottom 2/3, so I might leave the flowers behind when I finish her. There always seems to be solutions to art snaffus! 😜
All my #drawings
in the hospital get to about 95% complete.... Maybe 90% by the time I get them home! I don't have proper storage here, so she'll get smudged and I'll have repair to do. None of my drawings are completely done here without proper light and a pillow for a table surface. Lots of fine tuning to do when I get home. This isn't a complaint by any means - that becomes just another fun process.
I've only used my fixative spray twice! When I get home I'll be able to use it on over 50 pieces laying dormant. I can hardly wait for that time!! A healed, walking body *fingers crossed*, two new art mediums learned, fine skills highly tuned for all my art sticks, and enough pieces to possibly launch my own official website.
I haven't looked forward to my future in many, many months. And now I find myself almost impatient for it. That in itself, is a victory. 🤩🙌 #chalkpastel #art #artist #sketchartist #sketch #drawing #bluebaby #girlwithmanysecrets #newartist #everyvictorycounts #babysteps #freedomsocloseicantasteit
This girl needs to get back on mission. I spent this past week overhauling my home but my fitness goals didn’t leave my mind. Its never gong to be a full stop, it’s just pause. #fitness #babysteps
🤣🤣🤣 dam I was like 10🤣🤣 thinking I was nice... #babysteps
The new blog post is live on homegrownhalo.com (link in bio). I’m tossing it up tonight for all my fellow Monday conquering friends out there who will be up early chipping away at their goals. If you are someone who never knows how to start when it comes to attacking your big dreams, this is a great read for you!
Thinking of changing my IG handle to The Fat Gazelle. It’s a little more reflective with this huge decrease in intensity that has happened over the past few weeks. One debt left. Relatively small and could be done in 19 days but all my money mojo is on vacation. I have #money
in the bank just waiting to be paid to this last debt. But having a hard time pulling that trigger for some reason. #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #daveramsey #frugalliving #frugal #babysteps #gazelle #savings
Umm do you see that little indent in my arm? Didn’t used to have that. #babysteps #smallgoals #shoulderprogress
Went to @lagoonpark
yesterday! It was my first time and it was a blast! Was in vacay mode and definitely went outside of the eating plan 😬. Didn’t eat as bad as I used to, but may have indulged in 1/2 a burger, a few fries, and an ice cream cone 🤗. Did drink lots of water 💦 Still gotta live life, but back on the plan tomorrow!!! On another note can’t wait for my @gymshark
leggings to arrive tomorrow! #weightlossjourney #vacationmode #gym #motivation #fitnessmom
This is me. 1 week into LIIFT4. At the beginning of every program, you are supposed to take your "before" pictures. This is something I hound my clients about over and over! Cuz that number on the scale doesn't show your true progress. Yes, it can be used as a TOOL... a reference... a guideline... but let's be honest. There are too many factors that affect that number. And yet, being the biggest preacher of it, I forgot to do them 🙈
Yup! Maybe you've seen my "before and afters". Over and over again. And I get it. You see the beginning. You see the after. Then the next "before" doesn't look like the last "after"... But here's the thing. When I'm in a new program, I test myself. I push myself. And I follow the nutrition plan to a T. But that's not MY real life. My real life is aiming for 80/20. Including a little bit of living and a little bit of indulging. Because our lives should be carefree, and we shouldn't worry about how that meal or drinks with friends will affect the scale, or the "before and afters" .
So though my "before" pics don't look as good as the last after, I can tell you that little by little, they have improved. And with every new program I do, Ive learned a few more tools to continue improving. .
Improvement. Not perfection. Because I will never be perfect, nor do I aim to be. And this isn't about 3 weeks, or 8, or whatever the length of time or season. It's about a lifestyle. Meaning FOR LIFE!! And learning how I can be just a little better every day.
So I may be a week late, but it doesn't change how excited I am to see this one through. The first program with the structure I NEED in a workout and nutrition plan, but with the FLEXIBILITY of incorporating REAL LIFE! Because you should have a plan that works around your life, and not one that you have to work your life around 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
And if you're watching from the sidelines... thinking your "before" or right now, will be your forever... that you can't never a get that "after".... remember just to start where you are. Just start!! It may not be perfect. And hell, it never should be! But you can improve. A little every day. And if you need some support, I'm always here for you 😘
I’ve just taken on a 3 year old and a 5 year old brother-sister duo to start their lovely horse journey, and what better way for my boy to fall in love with them than a good old brush!
I am so excited to have children so I can teach them everything I know just like my Mum taught me! Maybe even buy them a horse and grow up with it like I have Tunnie, best birthday present a little girl could have!

is here! And that’s one scary statistic about plastic straws 😳. Already have a set of these but thrilled to have a second. Might keep this one in the car to have when we hit up a drive-thru. Now if they could just figure a way to package them without plastic. 🤔 #babysteps
