When you want to quit, think about why you started! - Today’s workout was HARD! I wanted to quit so many times! My arms were shaking and my legs were super sore, but I kept reminding myself of why I was doing it and that ultimately got me through! - My smile shows pure triumph! I proved to myself today that I can do hard things and make it through! Change is hard, but I know the end result will be SO worth it! ❤️
some days mean homework in the bath, heating pads, easy instapot dinners, & kids cuddles with movies . kids need to reset and recharge too, demonstrating self-care is vital . what reconnecting activities do you do with your kiddos?
I am loving this new program and I love that my trainer is all about self love. He provides us with a journal and daily affirmations. He asks us questions everyday to make you really think. He helps you stay connected to your struggles and how you over came them that day and loves on you every single day. As women we all know how quick we are to not love ourselves. This trainer reminds you everyday that we are worthy of self love! If you still have a hard time loving yourself come aboard (it’s only day 3) and let my trainer remind you each day that you are worthy of self love, you are worth caring for yourself, you are enough! #journal #love #loveyourself #youareenough #momlove #strong #momtime #foodisfuel #affirmations #worthy #valentines #loveyou #sweateveryday #workhard #youcandoit #coffeemom #winemom #middleschoolmom
You know what’s funny? I was once one of Network Marketings biggest skeptics. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤫 💯 Doubt hindered my ability to really understand how much opportunity there is in this field. I was closed off to the opportunity because in more ways than one, I thought I “knew better”. I did all the “right” things went to school, earned multiple degrees, and still felt there was something missing. It could of been desperation that really got the best of me - but I was at the “somethings gotta give” point in my life. And I will Be 💯 honest, I judged... 🤷🏼‍♀️ I couldn’t help it, my pride got in the way🙄 BUTT... i also couldn’t help but ask myself, why not me? Why was I excluding myself from something all these woman were so excited and happy to be apart of? Why was I battling the idea so fiercely? The truth is, social media is undeniably apart of our generation and it’s no longer a foreign idea to make some extra money around your crazy life. We’re all here... in this social media world.... and the world is LITERALLY at our fingertips. 📲 What it really came down to is me making the decision to go all in🙌🏼 I decided to let Him guide me. 👆🏼 I took a huge leap of faith, joined to see how it would go, that decision is one I will NEVER regret. It will always start with the decision to just give it a shot, that’s the only way he can direct your steps. I’ve now realized that more often than not, skepticism hinders you from reaching your full potential. And Faith serves to fulfill and not to deceive, but bottom line... you’ll never know if you don’t try. 🥰 ______________________ #Momlife #motherhood #parenthood #motherhoodunplugged #womenempoweringwomen #lifestylefitness #womenwhocrossfit #crossfitmom #coffeemom #fitmomsofig #documentingmotherhood #momsunite #femaleentrepreneur #girlbosslife #womenwhodo #womenwithambition #blessedmomma #fitmomma #strongmomma #mompreneurlife #nursemom #womenwhodo

Mama, of course you can do it all but not all at once. it’s perfectly fine to ask for help. It’s perfectly fine to take some time for yourself. ⠀ ~ Many new mothers don’t let their spouse or relatives help out with a new baby, because of course Mother knows best. But guess what?! Your baby will be just fine in the care of your husband or mother in law or sister while you run to get your nails done or take a nap. ⠀ Tag a mom that needs to see this! 💛
Get comfortable in your own skin!!😁 Take a chance and put on something you aren’t you used to bc you might just feel amazing!😉 . I have never owned anything that has shown off my stomach at all. I always find clothes that cover me up. I have always been uncomfortable showing it. Well I am done hiding it! Well I finally bought some crop tops. I actually feel amazing in this outfit!🥰
20 minutes spent working on me in the morning. Not because I’m selfish and think of just myself but because I know that starting my day with an endorphin rush helps me be better for everyone. ☺️ even on vacation I can find 20 minutes to bettering myself. Anyone else looking to feel better but “don’t have time?” 🤷🏻‍♀️ Such a silly excuse when we spend so much time watching shows like The Bachelor and skimming through FB! 🤪 If you really want to make a change let’s do it together. I’ll be here with you every step of the way.

After 2 attempts to put this thing back together and I gave up and just draped it over ....but as I'm trying to put this together for my smallest she brings me the last bit of my coffee which is the best part ...I was already thinking "great I didn't get to enjoy my coffee. I bet they drank the rest" Nope my baby came and gave it to me. 😍 My 💓... I seriously hate the design of this teepee so hard to put back together and wasn't durable ....but we make good use if it I think.

Wow baby!

I knew these kids would come in handy someday. 😂❄ . . What's the weather like where you live??
This morning, I took my kids to school and then sat in the car for a full 10 minutes trying to remember what I was supposed to do next. Was it laundry, go to work, grocery shopping, errands? Then I remembered. I just needed coffee. Remember, when you need coffee, all you have to do is reach into your fridge. If there’s not a bottle of Mrs. Jones coffee concentrate in there, just stop by one of our vendor locations to pick one up. @evermancoop @applemarketpensacola1021 @shopalyssas #momlife #coffeeaddict #coffeemom #coldbrewconcentrate #buylocal #buysmall #mrsjonescoldbrew #coffeeonthego
. ☕️Team Flavored Coffee or Team Simply Black Coffee? ☕️ . When I’m home I’m Team Black Coffee- I like to keep it simple. BUT if I’m out at a coffee shop and there’s a solid flavor choice...that’s what I go for! . I love my cup of coffee in the morning! It’s a key component of my morning routine. I wake up to my alarm, pour myself some coffee and sit down with my #starttodayjournal for some morning quiet time. . A key aspect of this business that I was drawn to is the freedom to design my schedule. I’m not now with Jacob. I don’t HAVE to set an alarm clock ⏰ but I CHOOSE to because that quiet morning time is so critical to my mood and mindset for the day. I feel calmer having that time to focus on me first thing in the morning before focusing on Jakey the rest of the day. . There’s power is choice and there’s power in knowing that I get to focus on me FIRST in order to be at my best for my family and to support others in my groups! . Whether you’re a flavored coffee or black coffee girl, a mama or a wife, working out of the house, or staying at home...YOU need to take time for you! If you want to learn more about how this business TAUGHT me to do that...click on the link in my bio and share your thoughts with me! ❤️

"I don't have time." I remember using this excuse... any excuse I could to justify why I couldn't have or do something. Then there was the mom guilt... taking away time from the kids so that I can do something for me. Oh the shame! 🙄 If you want to be able to take care of your family and for your kids to be well, you must find time for yourself and NOT FEEL GUILTY about it. Your children need a happy mother, who not only enjoys quality time she dedicates to her children and home, but also time to herself. In addition to being a mother, you are also a person.❤ So if you want to take a little time to exercise your body and work out, do it! You will feel much better on both the inside and outside. If you follow me, you'll see that Asher actually works out with me most of the time anyway 👈 No it's not always perfect, but I still show up. As if that was not enough reason, you will be giving your children a good example of a healthy life, and when they grow up they will likely see the importance of health and exercise, and leave the sedentary lifestyle behind. Our kids learn by our actions, not by our words. I'm showing mine that theirs is strong and the only thing I feel guilty about is that workout we just killed 💪 . . . . #momlife #isuckasahousewife #choosehappy #womanoffaith #fitmom #fitmomlife #newmom #toddlermom #toddlermama #momofboys #momlifeisthebestlife #toddler #toddlerlife #toddlerboy #toddlerfun #busymom #athomeworkouts #loveyourself #allthecoffee #coffeemom
I ran out of K-Cups this morning so I had to get out my french press this morning ☕️ How do you like your coffee? K-cups? French press? coffee shop? regular old coffee maker? I would love to know! I love my french press because it brings out all the flavors of the coffee beans. It also is coffee shop quality coffee for a fraction of the price. . . . . . . . . #coffee #firstcoffee #momandcoffee #coffeemom #strongcoffee #coffeebean #coffeebeans #darkroast #frenchpress #frenchpresscoffee #kcups #butfirstcoffee #coffeeandcreamer #halfandhalf #☕️

Do you wind up doing absolutely nothing because your too overwhelmed?? 🙋me too! I get overwhelmed a lot! My kids are a tornado on a daily basis and most of my work at home seems to be destroyed seconds after they arrive home. We are working together on cleaning up after each mess rather than me just taking care of it. Which is a slow process. I start everyday with a small list of things I want to do and the knowledge that I might not get it all done but something will get crossed off and I'm ok with that right now. I choose not to worry about silly things, like a pile of laundry that's not yet done. I choose to not get frustrated when I haven't crossed my entire list off. I'm writing my to dos in smaller steps which seems to be a lot more rewarding. "Something always comes from nothing" Winnie the pooh

¿Alguna vez te has recostado con las piernas y los brazos abiertos en un campo extenso (sobre pasto o grama), has mirado el cielo azul y has sentido que el mundo entero zumba a tu alrededor? 🤔 Acabo de leer esta pregunta en un libro que estoy leyendo (Cuando nos encontramos) y me hizo recordar momentos de mi infancia cuando lo hacía junto a mis primos y en esas cosas que me generan paz. Tengo que volver a hacer esto pronto. Mientras, me voy con mi cafecito que tiene más o menos el mismo efecto. 😜 ¡Linda mitad de semana! 🙌🏻🌸🌟 - Meta de esta semana: recostarme sobre la grama en el patio, extender los brazos y piernas y mirar hacia el cielo. En la mañana o el atardecer para que el ☀️ no impida que admire lo que veré. 🤩 ¿Será que sentiré lo mismo que cuando era niña? Ya les contaré. - 📷: 43/365 - #elcafeespaz
My nutrition is higher than this but definitely not my sleep! 😴
Back at it! 👊🏼Does anyone else struggle with allergies?? I was dealing with some allergy symptoms last week and then caught a cold and it definitely had me down for the count the past few days but I feel much better today! I struggle with allergies all year round and have struggled with eczema for years! However I HAVE noticed over the past few years since my nutrition has been much cleaner that my allergies symptoms aren’t as severe and I have had only one or two outbreaks of eczema on my hands that didn’t last long at all! Also when I get sick, I recover so much faster!! It always pays off to be proactive about your health so that’s why I will also make time for it! 🙌🏼
Strength comes from struggle. When you learn to see your struggles as opportunities to become stronger, better, wiser, then your thinking shifts from “I can’t do this” to “I must do this”! . This is where I am today! 🥺I am at a mental struggle with myself. 😞My workouts are challenging but not just physically but mentally! I really believe this is what I needed to get on the right path to become the person I am meant to be.☺️

Have you ever microwaved your coffee and forgot you microwaved it? It's cold again so you go through the same process over and over....
Our Story cont. By the end of 30+ hours after the earthquake someone from church had gotten word from the orphanage that everybody was alive and well. The relief was overwhelming! Brett and I kicked into overdrive trying to figure out how we could get into a country that was shut down. We had been contacted by The Today Show within 24 hours of my cousin Linda's story hitting the internet. ( I told you she was amazing! If you Google my name our story still comes up) We had been told to go on TV as much as possible and take every interview, in the hopes of getting someone in power to help us get our kids evacuated. This was incredibly hard for two people who are pretty private, who have been under stress that we'd never known before and little sleep. Are interviews showed it but we did it anyways. We would do anything if it meant getting Ben and DJ home. Telling our story is not easy because there are so many details packed into one week and so many God things that happened throughout, that it would take pages to share the whole story. Know this~some of the ideas we came up with were crazy but remember I said we'd do anything. At one point in time Brett and another man had decided that they were going to fly into Northern Haiti and walk or hopefully find a car to drive to South Haiti. In fact this plan was the one we had in place before we attended church on Saturday night the 16th. We were desperate that night and I had been arguing with Brett that I didn't want him putting himself in that kind of danger. Before we left church, a large group of our friends and members prayed for our family. We loaded up into the car with Aus & Karsi and I kid you not...my phone rang with information that changed all our "evacuation plans". Sometimes God answers prayers immediately! #ourjourney #adoptionstory #myfamilymyheart

Have you have a compliment to anyone recently? When was the last time you told someone how awesome they were or that they were a good mom?? 🤷🏻‍♀️ sometimes it might feel weird complimenting a stranger but I challenge you to do it. It’ll not only help them have a great day but you too! ❤️
Even though today was hard - & I’m sort of dreading another sleepless night getting her used to having both arms out of her swaddle sack - I’m so lucky I get to be her mom 💕 She is so sweet, silly, & loving ❤️ On days like this - I will continue to remind myself how blessed I am! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #bossmom #workingfromhome #buildingmyempire #fitmomma #postpartumbody #healthywife #postpartumjourney #strongmom #mommyhood #mombod #bestversionofme #mombod #postbabybody #postpartumlife #momsofig #mommabear #momswithmuscles #momswithtattoos #momswithcameras #motherhoodthroughinstagram #firsttimemom #firstbaby #mondaysbelike #sweatymess #michigangirl #coffeemom #luluaddict #makeupmom #mybabygirl 💕 #motherhoodmoments
there is beauty in simplicity . sometimes I find myself anxious due to trying to over complicate resetting my hormones, keeping kids healthy, & honestly just life as a single mom in general . when I find myself doing that I like to take it back to the basics & regroup . dinners do not all need to be pinterest worthy, activities do not need to be instagram worthy, & my selfworth is not dictated by likes/follows . I share my health journey to find community, share ideas, & make a statement that you are not alone . illness is lonely, invisible illness is isolating, & sometimes just seeing a post/comment/message/new friendship that reminds you someone else just gets it.....that will forever be priceless
Oh thank my lucky stars I workout from home. If what happened to me today during my workout happened at a gym...I would be the dinner table discussion of many people. But I have no shame & can laugh at myself.... . . Doing day 2/42 of a new program that requires a step. Our ab move had us on our backs on the step counting reps. I fell off....oh it gets worse... as I fell my mom bladder kicked in & a very loud fart escaped too... I am on the floor laughing my face off & I lost my count so needless to say I have no clue how I did in that round. . . But least I can laugh at myself in the process. Isn't this part of the transformation I want? Be secure in who I am & in my body. If I can't laugh at myself...then life is gonna be hard & kinda boring. Am I right?!
My son was asking me this morning whether I am grumpy without coffee... So I asked him what he thought... well it seems there are 2 votes for grumpy mommy without coffee!

Something I learned today is giving up is easier than going over that bump! 😞My workout today was challenging and I hit a point where I wanted to give up. I was on the verge of tears but I told myself just keep going just one more. 🥺I can say it is the best feeling getting over that challenge in my workout. I realized I have been giving up on myself and I am done doing that! I am going to push myself over each bump in the road and succeed where I know I can!🤨
•BOOSTING YOUR MILK SUPPLY•⠀ The truth is that not everyone can maintain the same milk supply and what might boost ones milk supply might not work for another. So here are some of the top ranking ways to help boost your milk supply:⠀ ⠀ ▫️Breastfeed and pump more. SUPLLY & DEMAND.⠀ Feed on demand, especially the first 2 months.⠀ ▫️Proper latch ⠀ ▫️“Empty” the breast or pump after feedings (you can never completely empty your breasts, with pumping it may appear to, but not when baby is sucking) ⠀ ▫️Relax and take it easy, stress is known to reduce milk supply ⠀ ▫️Eat a balanced diet and drink lots of water to maintain your supply ⠀ ▫️Pumping: Best time, morning right after your morning feed, that’s the time you have the most milk and it can help build a stash for times of need. Massaging your breasts while pumping is very helpful for maximum results (Make sure you know how to use the settings on your pump correctly).⠀ Power Pumping: pump for 20 min, rest for 10 min, pump for 10 min, rest for 10 min, pump for last 10 minutes. This mimics “cluster feeding” doing this for about a week will make a noticeable difference. ⠀ ▫️Use a Hakka: a suction cup placed on your other breast while feeding to catch the milk that comes out during let down. Some women are able to maintain a freezer stash by ONLY using a hakka. ⠀ ~⠀ Foods that help boost supply: oatmeal, almonds, spinach, grapes, fennel, rice, sesame seeds and tahini. ⠀ Drinks that help boost supply: water, coconut water (Fresh or Organic refrigerated kind) beer and wine (It is not advised to drink alcohol while breastfeeding, however, less than one cup is fine to have while breastfeeding and you should consult with your physician as well.

No one can explain it to you or prepare you - it’s just a whole different world of baby craziness! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Even with all the moments of frustration & almost near tears (or who are we kidding - actual tears) remember - you are doing amazing 🙌🏽✨ Sometimes you just have give the mess to God & let him hold you ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Tag a fellow mommy who might need this reminder today 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #bossmom #workingfromhome #buildingmyempire #fitmomma #postpartumbody #healthywife #postpartumjourney #strongmom #mommyhood #mombod #bestversionofme #mombod #postbabybody #postpartumlife #momsofig #mommabear #momswithmuscles #momswithtattoos #momswithcameras #motherhoodthroughinstagram #firsttimemom #firstbaby #mondaysbelike #sweatymess #michigangirl #coffeemom #luluaddict #makeupmom #mybabygirl 💕 #motherhoodmoments

Switching to decaf brought out my inner morning person and enabled me to enjoy the sunrises when we were in Brazil. . I know it sounds counter intuitive. I'm sure you are thinking, less coffee in the morning makes it easier to get out of bed? Huh?! . I was surprised to, but I rarely drink caffeine and my sleep is incredible! . Want to join us for a Jitter-free Janaury and see whether you become a morning person after a month without coffee? . . . . . . . #decaf #decaffeinated #caffeinefree #decafcoffee #latenightcoffee #adventure #livemoremagic #livefree #freedom #feelfree #feelfreefeed #savor #joy #stressrelief #stressfree #anxietyrelief #anxietyhelp #calm #insomniasucks #insomnia #adrenalfatigue #hearthealth #autoimmunedisease #adrenalfatiguerecovery #antiinflammatorydiet #pregnancyfood #breastfeeding #coffeemom #pregnant #fourthtrimester
⚠️WARNING ⚠️ The problem with #TransformationTuesday pictures are that they focus on one area...our outside appearance! - Cool Karen, you learned how to eat salads and exercise (sarcasm aside I promise...). But what about INTERNAL transformation? That's hard to put in a picture. I wish we could see our brains in our two pictures. - They go hand in hand. When we change our *mindset* and systems and focus on hormones and gut health - usually an annoying side effect (sarcasm again) is weight loss, better skin, better sleep, more self love, etc. - So take out the elliptical & avocado bowls in transforming pictures. Yes! Nutrition & movement is like 80% of transformation! But the way to *keep* that weight off and our outsides looking and feeling sustained is by changing OUR BRAINS. 🌱 Our habits. 🌱 Our view of food. 🌱 Our Environment. - The cool thing? I can help with that. I have gone through these mindset changes personally and KEPT the weight off (once again...an annoying side effect of getting my stuff together) bcuz I fixed my brain first. Brain games are fun and all but not when they mess with our quality of life. - Reach out to me sister. I had a support team to help me get outa my spiralling funk. It's time for you to get out too. DM me and we will talk about a plan to HEAL your life and not cover it with a patch or supplement.
Are you ready to take how you feel into your own hands??! 2.5 years ago when I started this journey, I was a lost mommy I took NO time to do anything for myself, I went to work, took care of my husband and kids This left me feeling lonely, depressed and tired...so so so tired ALL the time!! Do you know what that is like? I needed something for ME I needed something to make me feel better about myself I have always been an active person, so I turned to exercise as my ME time. I started joining groups filled with other moms just like me!!! I started coaching women that felt the same way, we have developed a tribe/sisterhood full of friendship, positivity, advice and fun I got my life back, and I am in the best health of my life!! Do you need something just for you?? Do you have health and fitness goals?? Do you want to be the best version of you?! Let's chat!!
