“Let’s not let another tragedy, like what happened to my son, happen again” shares Thomas Silvera, our dear friend, of the @elijahsecho
who's son, Elijah died from anaphylaxis 2 years ago. Today, Elijah would have turned 5 years old.
In honour of Elijah’s birthday and memory, Thomas put together this video to share Elijah's story and bring awareness to the severity of #foodallergies
and anaphylaxis. #elijahsecho
Transformation Tuesday is a little different tonight! I always come up with great thoughts for posts while I am in the shower!! So let me pour my heart out! 2018 was my BEST year as a health and fitness coach like the best in my 4 years. I felt whole, complete and completely honored to help the people I did in 2018 achieve everything they did, I was there for my customers and coaches to help them reach their goals and made sure I did my best so they couldn't fail, its such an honor to help people reach their goals and be so proud of themselves.
But heres the thing guys while I was helping others get and stay fit and healthy, I let myself go, I was taking care of everyone else making sure they wouldn't fail and in the end the only one I failed was ME!
My workouts never stopped but my eating went to hell and while I could beat myself up about it that wont change a thing. I am up 20 lbs and I never thought I would see that number on the scale EVER again.
I can say that 2 days into transforming my mind and body once again I AM FRIGGEN BACK! I am in my happy place again, taking care of ME first along with my family and customers and coaches at the same time!
Pouring my heart and soul into these next 6 weeks for not only my challengers but also for myself! I need more self care this year while helping others at the same time.
I am back on the personal development reading train too and I am just such a better happier person when my health routine is where it is now!
I am honored to help others each and everyday but I will also be making sure I am taking care of ME too! I even decided to dress like my step tonight too!
Imagine to be back in the right mind side with just 20 mins a day! Come on guys anyone and EVERYONE should be doing this!
I can take you on this journey as well 2019! Lets GO! • • • • • • #soccermom #grayhairdontcare #alwayscooking #earlysunrise #strongasshit #stretchmarkmama #asthmamom #nutallergymom #foodallergymama #giftedchild #fixingupourhome #homerenovation #buildingastrongerme #disneyworldfreak #anxietysurvivor #cleaneatsarenumber1 #endometriosissurvivor #selfcare2019 #premie #soccermommylife #imbackbaby #softballmommy

There are so many excellent #Allergists
out there working behind the scenes on our behalves, who we want to celebrate. Meet one of our absolute faves, Dr. Shahzad Mustafa; the lead physician at Allergy Immunology Rheumatology, @rocregional
, and professor of medicine at the @urochester
School of Medicine and Dentistry. He also happens to be a father of a child with severe #foodallergies
. This doc and dad really knows what he's talking about and explores whether #foodallergies
are over-diagnosed on our latest blog post (🔗 in bio!) #BelayScience #FoodAllergyAwareness
As another year comes to a close, let’s reflect upon and feel grateful for the progress we’ve made and how far along we’ve come. Let's all do our part as family, friends and peers to support and uplift one another. We’ve got work to do, still. So here’s to a New Year – an even better year - of greater advocacy, increased awareness, and better solutions for children and families living with #foodallergies
Here’s to a sparkling 2019
Do you like to celebrate with cupcakes? We do!
If you want something BAD enough, remember that it is going to be work! There are going to be rough patches, challenging days but you are stronger than you think you are!!!⠀✌🏻
I know that you make mistakes and sometimes you make choices without even thinking it through. I know you sometimes beat yourself up over the mistakes you made. I know this, because I have done it too!⠀
I remember when I started my journey how I would be so mad at myself for undoing all my hard work on the weekends. A few cocktails🥂 and pizza 🍕with friends, donuts 🍩on Saturday morning, and pasta dinner 🍝on Sunday night! The scale didn’t lie on Monday morning!⠀😳
I swore this week would be different! I’d crush it Monday through Friday and repeat the same habits again!⠀🙋🏼♀️
It wasn’t until I was legit so frustrated that I almost quit that I reached out for help. My mentor told me that you have to follow the 80-20 rule. 80% of the time you crush your nutrition and 20% you get to enjoy.⠀🤜🏻
When I started living by those rules I started seeing consistent results. I started tracking what I was eating, I started noticing trends and then my truths were revealed.⠀
It wasn’t easy but DANG, making those choices to eat better and drink all the water totally helped create habits that are lasting me a lifetime.⠀
4 years strong- no more dieting mentality, no more restrictive eating, just truthfully living my best life with balance!⠀🙌🏻
This is why I do what I do… I want to empower you to see that bigger picture and to know that it is possible for you too!⠀
Are you ready to start living your best life in 2019?⠀🎉🎉

I shared on my story some of my thoughts of this journey, truths, hesitations, questions asked!
Before this journey and seeing a good friend go thru her first 80 days like I did. I thought all the befores and afters were fake! 😬 now I know there’s test groups who select few go thru live workouts with contracts to even be considered! 🤦♀️
Not every day I want to work out even though growing up as an athlete probably makes it a little easier for me because I actually enjoy working out for the most part!
Most of all - I love doing something I enjoy so much and sharing it! It feels good to inspire people to do that same. Having an awesome group who cheer me on and cheer everyone else on too makes getting the workouts in everyday a little easier!! 👯♀️
What are you questions or hesitations to starting your health and/or fitness journey? 👂❓
