So, yesterday was day one of my team retreat…..
And retreat is the perfect word because at one point I wanted to retreat my ass out of there!!! 😨
All of you quiet introverts will know EXACTLY how I felt...you know the “go around the the circle and answer questions about yourself activity”????........🤦🏼♀️
And the ONE question that would make me ball my eyes out is the one I got…….why couldn’t I just have gotten “whats your favorite color”????😒
This was it:
“What has been the BIGGEST struggle you've been through in your life”?😱😰😳😭
.....so i answered it…...balling…...completely embarassed…
fight or flight in full effect!
But after calming down, taking a chill pill.......not retreating like my instincts were telling me to do, these were my thoughts....
We avoid these hard situations because of fear, of embarrassment, fear of showing too many emotions, fear of judgment, fear of vulnerability, fear of saying something we might regret…
It all comes down to caring WAAAAAAAY too much about other people’s view of us! .
Because in the end, those people that judge or hate on us are NOT the people we want in our circle. .
This is something I’m fighting my hardest to overcome, even if it means facing these uncomfortable situations! .
The only way to get past your fears is to face them, not bury them!

When working with others through my overcoming anxiety programme or sessions this is something that is so important to learn. The power of saying no! Saying no to things or people that make you feel uncomfortable. Saying no to your boundaries being pushed. It’s not easy as we all love to please others. But often this is to the detriment of our own health. I view this as one of the 10 keys to overcoming anxiety naturally. So have a think this weekend as you approach next week what can you say no to that doesn’t feel right. You are important!

Been spending every afternoon with this cute little muffin. It’s been so amazing to have this special time together daily.💗 I used to have soooo much mom guilt😩. I mean, I still have some... I think we all do😬. There’s nothing we want more than to be everything we can possibly be for our kids. But a HUGE weight has been lifted. I’ve learned how to really focus on what I want and to take action to go get it.
Instead of letting the anxiety of how fast kids grow up take over, I took control of that bitch and told her ‘I know, but I’m going to appreciate every moment along the way and do the best I possibly can while I can’. 😭 ugh I just started crying writing that. Momming is so freaking hard. And not because my kids are bad, just because I want to give them my everything. And I remember how many times I let worry interrupt my ability to even be present.
I finally feel like I have control of my actions, I know what my priorities are and what choices to make based on my goals. This goes for my mom goals as well as my fitness goals, my coach goals, and my life goals.
My PD book today taught me that to be most productive, to be in that top percentile, you have to write down your goals as if they’ve already happened. So I will be doing that exercise tomorrow. Because these goals sounds really amazing in my head, and I want to do everything in my power to continue to make them a reality 💕
So I got a take the stairs challenge today.
Since I have no stairs to take lol I went for a walk on this beauty of a fall evening.
Also I should get a step counter cuz I’m pretty sure a day in the life of both a nurse and a barista could be counted as exercise....Juuuussssttt sayyyiiinn 😪😪😪 Doesn’t matter what you do, but get out and do SOMETHING!
Seriously, we’ve had fall, rain, snow and summer alll in #October
🤷♀️🤦🏼♀️😋 #happyfriday #fitfam #enjoythesunshine #fitness #stayactive
This is me today, and at this very moment when I recorded this video my anxiety started kicking in... I was feeling all nervous, over thinking, feeling nauseous, feelings and thoughts of not being enough come to the surface. You may not be ale to tell but i was pushing through my emotions... Even though everyday is a battle, and some days are wayyy better then the next, I'm learning to conquer my chronic anxiety and not let it get the best of me.
If you have anxiety I'm with you, I get it, its annoying, its upsetting but WE WILL GET THROUGH IT!!!
Well I’m back up and straight back into it. I have the next 2 months to give myself as much love as possible and prepare my body for the harvest.
We start ivf again in January and because we are out of eggs I will need to harvest more. This time they are introducing 2 more hormones to see if we can get stronger eggs yippee more hormones!!! And during my peak wedding season for work. I feel blessed. No no I don’t the real me is saying wtf and fuck this shit and then I take a deep breath and tell myself well if you want your baby this is what you have to do to get it so suck it up enjoy your time off but work hard and go after what you want. No time to fuck around. Let’s do this shit. Lol 😂 keeping it real.
If all goes well with harvesting we will have an embryo implanted into my uterus by the end of February start on March and results by the end of March.

Superfoods, please work your magic so I can meet these amazing humans that coaching brought into my life in person FINALLYYYY 🙏🏻
Feeling cute. Depressions a bitch and anxiety is a burden. Even people who seem like they have it all together, probably don’t. Remember social media is just a highlight reel of everyone’s life. Don’t compare your every day to someone’s “best self”
Lovely flowers from a patient, to say thank you for helping her overcome her nerves. #ihavethebestclients
There are so many misconceptions when it comes to Coaching. First of all, I feel like the word “Coach” automatically puts you on a pedestal.
Ya’ll. I’m not special. I’m socially awkward sometimes. I’m shy. I have no special certification. I don’t have a fitness or nutrition background and I’m not going to sit here and pretend that I do. My job isn’t to teach you about nutrition and fitness. My job is to SHARE with you what has worked for me and provide you with the tools I have, in hopes that it could work for someone else too.
I have my fair share of struggles with anxiety, insecurities, lacking motivation, nutrition, and I have the same demons inside of me that many of you have. But it’s a lot easier to stay committed and show up when you have an entire tribe behind you, supporting you and cheering you on!! My job is to SHARE my struggles with you to show you that no matter what you’re going through, you too can find the time and a way to make yourself a priority.
Through Coaching, I have met some of the most amazing ladies, who I never would have met otherwise. It keeps me accountable to my health and fitness goals. I was able to myself a RAISE while working from my phone and not having to leave my family to go to a second job...all because I decided to take a leap of faith and start sharing my journey with others!
If you’ve ever wondered about what I do as a Coach and you’re wondering if you could do it too? The answer is YES YOU CAN. But why don’t you see for yourself and join our Coach Sneak Peek that is starting on 10/31!! A couple other Coaches and myself, will give you the real, raw 411 about Coaching over on Facebook. We will share our stories, how we’ve been able to fit it in to our very busy lives, and even how we make money!💰💰💰 No strings attached - you can just listen!

Brantley walked for the first time today & I got to witness it. At 9:14 to be exact 😂 #imthatmom
I was able to be right there by his side cheering him on. I saw his sweet little smirk when he started to take off. I saw the hesitation as he reached for me wondering why I kept scooting further away 😂. And I was able to clap with him as he smiled up at me after falling down. I’m emotional af about this kid 😂 so I cried, of course. But when I was sitting on the floor snuggling him after, I cried a few more happy tears because I’m so thankful I even have the opportunity to stay home with him, watch these milestones in his little life, and still bring in an income with doing something i love from home so I don’t have to miss out on a thing. I couldn’t Imagine not being there for this & if I followed the original plan I had for life, I’d be getting a text from the sitter while sitting at my 8-5 job. Probably heartbroken because my heart is with my kids. .
I know there are all these “marketing” pitches on social media these days so a lot of people probably roll their eyes. But this opportunity is such a blessing in everybody’s life I’ve witnessed who had a vision, believe in this, & went for it. If you’re a working mom and you feel this way, if you still haven’t had kids but know there’s where you’re heart will be at when you do, or if you just want to stay home by yourself or with your animals 😂 start NOW! Because who would turn down a “job” like this when you get to experience all the milestones you ever wanted to with your kids. ❤️❤️ .

I would start running and eat less of everything and then just quit. That was how I was doing in the "healthy department".🤦♀️
Time and being committed has been a struggle in the past for me. I just never knew what I should be doing and I would hit a plateau.
But now I have a group of women who keep me accountable, so I make time.
Now I have been taught the RIGHT WAY to eat.
Now I have workout calendars that tell me what I should be doing each day.
And now, I feel the best I ever have. I am now committed and have guidelines!🙌
I have a FREE Fit Team starting on Monday. I encourage you to join! I know it can be scary. But its so worth it. Plus, its FREE and mainly informational!
Click on the link in my profle and choose "Jena's Fit Team" for more info!!!
Part of me is sad and frustrated because my body is shutting down on me, but part of me is so happy because I get a day tomorrow to rest up and sleep in 🙏🏻
It’s so important to listen to what our bodies are telling us. All week I’ve felt rundown, exhausted, and each day it got a little worse and my head got a little cloudier.
As a teacher I tend to run myself into the ground. Full speed is my only speed. Sometimes I think I can just power through everything..but I’ve come to realize that what’s MOST important is slowing down.
So tonight and tomorrow I’m taking time to recharge, drink my liquids, and get like 827493 hours of sleep 🙃😴
I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things that weren’t meant for me. I’m learning thats it’s ok to stand alone and that what I’m walking towards is much more meaningful! ▪️
I’ve always felt guilty if I wanted to walk away from toxic relationships so I stayed. Thinking that if I changed to make someone else happy would better the situation. ▪️
Wrong! I’ve learned that I’m only hurting myself. I’m better then that!! I deserve heartfelt relationships and people who stand up for me and not tear me down for their own benefit. ▪️ It’s never too late to take charge of your happiness!! ▪️ #happiness #growing #selflove #buildinghealthyrelationships #newyou #adventure #overcominganxiety #futureisnow
I have had issues with my weight all of life. From the age of 10 to now I have never been happy with myself or my body and I have never been able to hit my target weight. Even in most of these photos where I'm smiling, looking back on them makes my stomach turn. I wake up in the morning and avoid looking at my body in the Mirror because I feel sick to look at no change.
But what upsets me the most is my unwillingness to change... I moan day after day about how unhappy I am but will soothe my misery with junk. I see so many of my friends having lives and creating futures and wishing I had the same, but I refuse to take action and try and create my confidence. My resistance to change has now led me to the worst anxiety and depression to the point where i dont wven want to leave my bed. And every morning when I do manage to face the day I hate myself for my lack of passion, motivation and confidence to know that I CAN CHANGE!! These will be the last photos I ever post of the Lisa you all know today. Tomorrow is a new beginning. 🌺
