Long post: Awkward angle but it’s also a small victory I’m very excited about! I finally broke down and bought a new pair of jeans Friday at Target size 10 Short and I figured they’d be for when I lost a little bit more and could squeeze in sometime soonish so I wouldn’t be droopy drawers all the time but not only did they fit perfectly, but for the first time in over 10 years I don’t have to cut them off or roll them up to wear them, because they also fit in length! I’m so used to even short jeans being too long because when you buy a bigger size they automatically think oh she must be taller as well! Nope! Also so excited to know that the next size down I go will no longer be double digits! There’s nothing more motivating than progress!!! I freakin love Keto so much!!! Wish I had known about it a long time ago! #keto #ketodiet #ketolife #ketocommunity #ketocommitted #ketovictory #shortjeans #soexcited

Trinity’s jacksonville Party was so much fun!! Thank you to everyone who came 😍
Also I am so proud of myself! Stayed on keto the whole time! No sweets or carbs for me & I honestly didn’t want any 👏🏼👌🏻 Easiest eating plan to follow ever!
🥂Do you ever have one of those weeks you just can’t keep up and need some space?
I apologize for being so MIA this past week... I am so thankful for all the love and support on here and incredible people I’ve met... but this week, I’ve needed to take some time to myself and my family....
For those of you who followed my stories last week, I am officially accepted and registered into the hairdressing program and paid my deposit!!!🍾🙌🏼 I feel like a ball of emotions.
This may sound a bit dramatic but for the first time in my life I’m doing something I have dreamt of doing for literally 19 years. I have always done what I needed to do... I became a mom at a really young age, went through being a single mom and some huge trials... I did what I had to do to survive but not what I loved and that’s ok because providing for your child takes first place... But why shouldn’t we pursue doing what we love if situations change and you can?
Part of me feels guilt, worrying that our 3 boys will be ok... overwhelming feelings of gratefulness that I CAN do this and that I now have the most incredible husband that pushes me to follow my dreams. Hair school is just one of the first pieces to the puzzle of the journey and I can’t wait to see my vision come to life over the next few years... Helping women transform physically and mentally. It’s more than just hair....💗
I want to say thank YOU to the most incredible humans I have met on here. I am overwhelmed by the support and love and messages from you. I’d love to share more of my story one day with you all... if it could give someone going through what I have, the strength that they can get through it too, it will be so worth it. Love you all!!💗🥂
I am coming up on my 1 year #ketoversary
and have found myself doing a lot of reflecting on myself and the process.
I started on a whim after tons of research, I knew the general how-tos and the enormous health benefits but was ultimately going it alone.
I did really well for the first few months, despite traveling and spending 1000000 hours on the softball fields hours away from home. I managed to lose 30 lbs in the first about 2 1/2 months. I felt great inside and out.
Then I let life grab hold of me and I lost it. I tried several times to regain my momentum but could only stay committed for a few days before being thrown into uncontrollable situations and making bad choices. And seeing people lose 100+ lbs in like 6 months is disheartening...."props to you but why cant I do it?"
And again, 2 weeks ago I began a #dietbet
and did Amazing the first week. Only to be in BFE, HOURS from home for 3 days and seriously underestimated what I needed to take. I have become horrible with working out- lack of money and trying to finish my masters is draining my time and energy. I am contemplating giving up my Shelvolve and Planet fitness memberships.
BUT as I approach my 1 year..I KNOW this is the best way of eating for me. Physically and emotionally. I am super serious about reaching my goals and changing my life. I may not have the desire to workout right now, but that will come, it always does. What I am excited about it really embracing this lifestyle and finding myself craving #ketoapproved
foods instead of junk.
Good morning!☕️ The big boys are sleeping in and my little guy and I are relaxing downstairs.
Something I have started doing for the past half year or so that has made a big difference for me is having fresh flowers and either a candle burning or essential oils going. The flowers don’t even have to be expensive... just a little bundle. I love white or light pink ones... they go with everything. And I love finding beautiful white candles from stores like Winners. It makes such a difference having nice quality candles. Then when I do my oils I have different blends depending on my mood.
It may seem like such a little thing but it is so good for your mental health. Now to clean out th coffee table because it’s driving me crazy 😜.
Have an amazing Saturday!!💗💗💗
