Why now? Beacuse it is time to take thst risk that you always wanted to take. Sometimes we need something different in our lives to make us reach for the best version of ourselves.
I wouldnt be able to help people. When i took on this business i thought that i couldnt help people and i wouldnt be any good at it. When people message you and say i needed that today thank you for that encouragement. And sometimes you need that for your own encouragement.
I also was thinking im not where i want to be in my weight. I was always up and down with my weight and never consistent with the working out.
When i signed on, i relized it was a way to make me happy and healthy and help people who think like me. When i got into a community of empowering women and the support i needed. I started a program and i finished. If i didnt become a coach i wouldnt have finished any program . I am so grateful that i got involved in this awsome family.
Sometimes we need to get out of our comfort zone and just do it. Everyone struggles and have bad days. Its how we handle the bad days and coming out of the bad day.
My January online bootcamp is still opened and i have a fee spots opened. I would love to have you in my group so we can go through this journey together and get through the good days and the bad.
Does your laces open every 30mins no matter how tight you tie them? 🙃 #dailystruggles
Playing with a new genre: slice-of-life!
Idea so far: The daily struggles of Quinley, who wants to make it in the witchcraft business. She strives to be as cool as her idol/crush Phuong, a world-famous witch!
It's refreshing to work on something different. Let's see where it goes!

|| Teaser 16/12/18 || Tomorrow Afternoon my new article will come up. || Sometimes we don't feel okay. Instead of accepting that we can't be 100% perfect all the time, we criticize ourselves for being human. Especially woman are experiencing high expectitions not only from society but also from themselves. The Perfect Body, being a Perfect life Partner, a Good parent, Good at work/ school/ University, having a lot of friendships are highly regarded life goals, but What if we ask to much from ourself?

Week 6 day 3
Day 23 of the challenge
A friend took a photo of me today at our annual gift exchange. And before I go on, I should not that it was an absolutle lovely evening. We all had loads of fun and are super grateful to have one another in our lives. We always have so much fun doing literally nothing.. but just evenings filled with laughter.
And then I seen this photo of myself. I start reminiscing in the days where I could fit into smaller clothing, days when I'd never be bothered by how I looked in a photo. But because of all my weight gain, I absolutely dread photos. I hate seeing myself. I'm not happy with how I look. I am trying to change it. But with the causal life stressors I struggle with getting my diet under control... because time. There just isn't enough of it.
I do have a healthy meal plan and I am trying very hard to work with it. My issue right now is holiday snacking.
I've set short term goal. Tomorrow I will absolutely not est anything sweet aside from my morning coffee because needs lol. One day at a time right.

Them: “Gina, did you lose weight?” Me: “Yup, 40 lbs!” Them: “U look good, how did you do it?” Me: “Thanks!!, I stop eating meat, drinking wine (daily or when bored) , just basically eating more veggies and water”
Them: “ U go to the gym?”
Me: “Naw, I’ve too busy, but I do plan to get back to my strength training.”
I have to keep reminding folks, going to the gym, daily..... means nothing when u eating crap! #SW207 #CW167 #weightlossjourney #dailystruggles #greensmoothie #daily #salad #clearerskin #smallerwaist #winning
Dad vs Kindergarten - The Principal
You know it's going to be a long school year when the Principal of the school knows your child by name within days of the start of classes.
For the record, he didn't do anything bad...I hope it stays that way.
It takes a strong person to ask for help, asking is the hardest part.
White noise syndrome•
I’ve been feeling that allot lately. Drowning out the world around me and focusing on pain. In the holidays season we can distract ourselves with gift buying, parties, work related situations, movies on repeat.
But at the end of day how is your soul feeling?🤷🏽♀️•
I love winter and all it has to offer, the snow, the cold, the lights, the warmth even in dark months.
I identify with winter, because most days on the inside I feel like the stripped away trees, the cold that shoots through your body and makes you stop breathing, the change in transitioning where I’m forced to do something new and know I don’t know if can face it alone. I decorate myself with lights to disguise my pain, I decorate the world around me with love so that if there is enough around me maybe I’ll feel it for myself on my low days.🌨•
I’ve talked about anxiety and mental illness on here before so I want to say this loud and clear for ANYONE listening and struggling. Too many times we don’t say what we are dealing with, afraid of what people will think. What WE as humans go through is raw.🗣•
I don’t like myself most days. I’m extremely self conscious physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I had a two hour crying fit last night over things that are just beyond my control. Some of my days are HARD- and I’m talking haven’t taken a shower, haven’t eaten, three panic attacks, lock myself in a room hard. But I’m NOT ALONE. And neither are YOU. •
I have friends and loved ones, and an amazing partner, Not to mention JESUS. That even though my anxiety makes me believe I’m not loved- I AM. STRONGLY, FAITHFULLY, and CONSTANTLY LOVED. And like winter I will transition. Flowers and bulbs with bloom and new growth will happen. And it can for you too. Talk to you friends, reach out, find a local or highly suggested therapist, your local church group! You ARE DEEPLY LOVED. Please don’t think otherwise because of your mental illness. 🌹•

🔙📸 To the young, carefree days🙋
Was living with a photographer friend at the time and was modelling for her almost every night🤦♀️
I had to take a breath and think about those days! For the love of God, how much free time did I have?! And how wisely I have used them! (I have too many of these pics😂)
I do have a tendency to remember everything in a positive note given enough time! Dunno if its a curse or a blessing 🤯 Hence I'm not 💯 sure, but I think this was a stage where I was quite happy with my life. So let this be the affirmation for the day
I am happy🌺
I am happy💮
I am happy🌸
Yoooo.... I'm still here, ya just haven't seen me much! I'm working out.. nutrition.. eh.. I need to be doing better on that one! 🤣
Most of all.. I've been focused on getting my priorities straightened out. It's easy to become consumed and stray from what's most imprtant in this life.
Top two.. JESUS and my family!
They come first! Always! So I'm focusing on routines, balance and finding what works for me.
My mornings have been coming earlier and I'm spending time in scripture and prayer. Then I'm squeezing in that workout! 💪
I'm focusing on being a better wife, mother and servant to my Lord.
This life is fleeting and I can't miss what's right in front of me! To be honest, I have a lot to work on.. but I'm working on it!! So.. Just so ya know.. I don't have it all together.. I'm still figuring things out. I struggle daily, but I recognize I gotta keep working on it... and THAT'S what imma do! ✌
So, I was super lazy & ordered some Christmas presents from Kmart online & if you know me well enough, you will know my house is a 5 minute walk from Kmart HOWEVER my anxiety has been playing up so bloody much lately I am seriously struggling just to walk out the door!
I take so much pride in being involved with my kids & giving them opportunities to climb & get messy outdoors but it’s like a wall comes up as soon as I open the front door, I sweat, my heart races, I struggle to catch me breath & then all the ‘what if’s’ come to mind .... this is a daily struggle & I know I’m not alone but it’s so hard to accept what’s going on inside your own head.
I’m basically writing to make it known, & also so my friends don’t think I’m neglecting them for any other reason! If you made it this far, awesome & just know, I am always here if you need because I understand the struggle 💕
