This transformation didn't happen overnight. It took a lot of sweat, hard work, and SELF BELIEF.
Throw that doubt aside.
Believe in yourself.
Do the dang work and dream big.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a simple mindset shift ✨
It’s official. This is my first time launching a group program and the cart is open.
And even though I’ve had my fair share of launches under my belt, I can’t help but feel those butterflies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I once heard that when you ask high performance athletes, the highest paid public speakers, and the types of daredevils who jump out of planes (🙅♀️) if they feel nervous, that they’ll always respond “no” but “that they’re excited”.
Those butterflies I feel? Maybe they’re not nervousness. They’re excitement.
Im sitting here thinking about all the other times I’ve had the same feeling of butterflies in my stomach…
Like after your first kiss, before that life changing job interview, or when you put in your 2 weeks notice to start working for yourself...
Turns out that, looking back, they were never nerves.
They were always just the magic of new beginnings.✨

“Negativity will destroy your power. Negative judgment will destroy your power. Not staying committed will destroy your power.”
And all I could think was I don’t bust my ass during these workouts, getting stronger everyday, so that some negative self doubt can come in and destroy that power! 🙅🏻♀️
So here is to being strong physically and mentally, to being committed to myself!!! 💪🏼👊🏼
Are you committed to swatting that negative self talk away?! #aintnobodygottimeforthat #transform20

When the birthday cake is long gone but you still can’t stop thinking about it...🎂 #quarterlifecrisis
The last few days of work have taken a toll on me... between long days, late and sleepless nights, deadlines, and meetings my body had enough and "rewarded" me with a wicked migraine.
I could've pushed through, but decided a day of rest at home was more important. In this day and age, we are always on the go and fail to take a step back and relax. I've learned over the past year how important it is to take a break when life gets too out of control, even if it's just for a few hours. Your health and well-being are so important. If you don't take care of yourself first, how can you give the most to your family? Friends? Job? Other obligations?
I'm still waiting for the day where mental health days are accepted the same as sick days... but for today, a day of rest and kitty cuddles will do just fine 💕
I could give up coffee....but I’m not a quitter💪🏽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last year I tried to give up coffee for like a week and I failed. Miserably. So, instead of giving it up I’m making it as healthy as I can. I no longer use sugar, swapped my dairy creamer for almond milk, and now I’ve upgraded to organic coffee.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Y’all know I’m always about a good deal, so when I saw that #simpletruth
sold organic k-pods for just $7.99 AND they’re buy one get one free at @HarrisTeeter
I was on it. I will say I prefer the medium roast to the dark roast but waking up at 5 AM this dark roast does the trick 😩.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Happy mother flippin birthday to my bestest friend in the entire world!!! I hope you have an amazing wonderful day, you deserve it! Can’t wait to go buck wild with you this weekend, I love you!! #quarterlifecrisis
I’m having a quarter-life crisis.
My 25th birthday is next month, and I’m constantly asking myself “what?” and “why?”
Why do I try so hard? What is my true purpose? Why does this matter? What do I want to do with my life for the next 60 years, assuming I even have that long to live in the first place? Why do I sometimes feel unfulfilled?
These questions can honestly be overwhelming sometimes, and it’s easy to get lost in your thoughts and fall down a rabbit hole of despair.
These are the moments you have to cling to your support system and positive thoughts. Remind yourself that you are exactly where you’re meant to be at this very moment. Everything is working out in your favor, and you will accomplish your goals, even if they seem far fetched right now.
For me, these thoughts come from a negative place. I know that if I entertain them, I will spiral downward and find myself in a worse place.
Now, when the thoughts creep into my mind, I’m going to try to rephrase them in a more positive way. Think Michael Scott giving Toby his exit interview.
TL;DR I’m an Aquarius sun having an existential crisis. How original of me.
MY word for 2019 is: WORTHY
I chose worthy because my worth is something I struggle with every day. I’m constantly shutting up my inner mean girl who tells me I’m not worthy of my dreams, of this business, of success, of my friendships, my family, my happiness..
I know in my heart that I am and that I was created for something big, but that’s doesn’t stop the voice in my head from arguing with me constantly
So here is to being mindful & letting @myintent
bracelet remind me every damn day of 2019 that I am WORTHY.
What is your word for the year?
Does anyone else feel like the years 24 to 25 are a pivotal time in your life? I know your Saturn return happens at 29 but I’m going on 25 and feel like major shifts are happening. Maybe it’s the fact that your brain is fully developed by 25? 🤷🏻♀️At the beginning of 2018 I started to question a lot of what I was doing and I felt like I was in limbo for the whole year. Now as I reach 25 I can feel that things are starting to fall into place and that I’m gaining more clarity. I finally made a big decision that I had been mulling over for months and I’m still feeling emotionally hungover from it. However I feel like it was a vital decision for me to make in order to achieve my goals. I actually talk about this transition on my first ever solo episode. Have you listened? What are your thoughts about the transition of 24➡️25?
P.S. That’s my website in the photo. It’s going live soon so stay tuned!!
Realness. I’ve been job searching and not hearing back is driving me crazy. How do you guys deal? 😭
💥Your mind c r e a t e s your life.💥
I cannot stress that enough. Your mind can either set you back or push you forward.
🙅🏾♀️ It doesn’t matter what you *feel* like you want, or what you *feel* like you should have.
If you’re stuck in negative thoughts that stop you in your tracks, bad habits that hold you back, shameful thoughts that tell you you’re not good enough, you will always sabotage your efforts.
⚡️ If you’re smart, with the right skills, great experience, awesome personality and you’re wondering why you’re not further along... It may be time to stop looking around at everything (& everyone) else and start looking at yourself and the way you think.
🙅🏾♀️ This is why I don’t just help people fix their resumes, or prep for interviews. While we touch on all of that and more, I also teach you how to change the way you think, from...
⚡️Scarcity to Abundance ⚡️Quantity to Quality
⚡️”Pick me, pick me!” to “Here’s what I can do for you.”
Which ones could you work more on? 👀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Double tap if you’re ready to start thinking differently so you can finally achieve your goals and have the career and life you want. 🙌
It’s always easy to assume, when you look at someone else’s life, that they’ve got it all going on.
But I bet if you stepped into that person’s shoes, they don’t have a clue as to what the hell they’re doing in the big scheme of things.
That’s me ✋🏻. I really do NOT have a clue. I want to say that I’m less lost than I was a year ago but honestly, I think I just stopped thinking about it all and I started finding happiness in this moment rather than the future moment.
Will I be a success coach forever? Will I have a forever love of fitness coaching?
Will I become the world’s most amazing cake decorator?
Or reopen my furniture/decor business?
Will I have kids?
Will I travel forever or settle down?
Will the DTBH podcast one day inspire millions?
Girl...I just don’t know!
And not knowing those answers used to drive me INSANE!
Today I travel the country in a van...and I am happy.
Today I am a success and fitness coach...and I am happy.
Today I have a podcast that inspires *me* and 30 others...and I am happy.
Today I am on my way to give these grown out bleached roots some color...and that makes me happy!
Tomorrow...woo! I’m just as lost as you are when it comes to what tomorrow will bring, and I’m a-ok with that. Right here, right now..this is the only moment I have control over. So I’m going to keep doing whatever puts a smile on my face in this moment and we’ll see what today’s actions bring forth into my life tomorrow.

or more commonly known as the #quarterlifecrisis
For 4 days I have been trying to write a post but everytime I started I got scared that this is the reality of our birthdays now. What was as normal as muscle memory is now something we will miss at least for the near future.
Happy 25th. I think after the crazy 21st somewhere we assumed 25 will be together. But guess what? We grew up. Ironically we won't be far apart if we hadn't pushed each other.
Here's hoping that push pays off and you find what makes you happy. And that we can continue our bonfires & midnight swims and just sitting and working without talking one day.
I miss having a drift car. If anyone comes across a s15 varietta shell lemme know #quarterlifecrisis

Today’s workout included a quick back and bicep circuit followed by Day 3 of Transform 20. Needless to say, I’ll be on the couch for the rest of the night because I can’t move my arms OR legs...
HEY! YOU! Stop scrolling and pick ONE item on this list that would make you feel better than you do at this very moment. Mine’s a toss up between drinking a glass of water (had some salty popcorn that’s making me thirsty AF) and going to sleep because I’m tired and I’ve got an early, jam-packed morning. So you know what? I think I’ll do both. Water + Snoozing... here I come!
Let me know which one you’d pick👇 (and then go do it)
Life Tip: NEVER wear lip gloss when it's windy outside.

Happiest of birthdays to my #1
fan, Drew! So thankful to have you in my life 💕 here’s to 26!
In the spirit of the #10yearchallenge
, lets talk about where your LIFE was 10 years ago.
In January 2009, I was living in San Diego and interning for architect Sebastian Mariscal, specifically working on an exhibition for the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego. This was every young designer's dream position, getting to tag along to the construction sites of all the cool projects being built by the studio. I even got a private tour of the famed Wabi House by the project manager (still one of my favorite houses to this day). While I was thrilled to be surrounded by such incredible works of architecture, it was during this time that I began to feel the initial dread that architecture wasn't the right fit for me career wise. My identity at that point was "future architect". But I couldn't stand being behind a computer all day, which is the sad reality for most architects. Building codes and waterproofing details were the bane of my existence. (I can feel my gut twisting just thinking about those days 😩). It wasn't until a couple years later and a major quarter life crisis that I ended my 9 year relationship with Architecture and started fresh with sexy and mysterious Chinese Medicine ☯️. Don't get me wrong, I still love Architecture, but our relationship is much different these days. It's playful and non-committal 😉. I get to design things on my own terms, when and what I want. I look forward to the day that I design/build my own house (#10yearsfromnowchallenge
?!). Life usually doesn't go as planned, but there is so much beauty in the unknowing✨. I'm curious where you were 10 years ago, and how your life has transpired since. Share your story below or tag me in your post!
Stop taking things that are not yours!
“I’m stressed, I’m tired, I’m upset, I’m anxious”
Do you think you’re the ONLY person that has ever felt that? At all!
When I applied this concept into my life, the way I look at my emotions completely shifted.
I realized that it was a choice & if everyone else can experience those icky emotions it’s not mine!
Want to really shift your mood? Here are the 4 easy ways:
•Realize those bad moods are yours, you can release them whenever you want.
•Give yourself a timeline, “I will give myself 2minutes or feeling this way”
•MOVE! Emotions come from motion. 10 second dance parties are my fave! I dare you dance crazy for 20seconds & now feel the shifting your mood 💃🏻
•When in doubt..LAUGH at it all! 💗

True. My crush now looks like a little boy. Am I the only one who thinks guys getting haircuts make them look like little boys??? In a “omg you’re so cute I want to squish your face” kinda way.
Where do you mind the perfect man? In a grocery store buying avocados 🥑
Finally I’m on track for something
Did you guys know that early adulthood is a new stage of life? Until recently, it wasn't included in what psychologists consider the process of aging. You were a teenager, then you were an adult. ❄️
But, as life expectancy lengthens, and since college has become the norm, things have changed. Gone are the days when kids became adults at 18. That's when we enter young adulthood, a time for figuring stuff out.
Still, the lines are a little blurry on when young adulthood ends. At age 30? 35? When you have a mortgage? When you get married? It's unclear. So, my question to you guys is-- how can YOU be expected to have it all together if SCIENTISTS don't even know what's going on in your life right now? 👀

My favorite time of day is when I can put on comfy clothes, throw on some jamming music and just grind on my business. Guys, I’m not exaggerating when I say this gives me LIFE!! There’s no other feeling than knowing you are helping people commit to bettering themselves and getting paid to work on yourself as well! I don’t know about you but I don’t want to live my whole life just working for someone else’s dreams, so I’m grinding for my own! And you can too!!

Many people go to college to study majors that THINK they need to! Because of pressure from family , society, etc🤦🏽♀️🤦🏻♂️
It can be quite hard to take the part you truly feel you’re called to especially when it’s a creative not commonly defined career. .
Whose found themselves in this kind of conundrum and how did you deal with it or are you still dealing with it? 🥴
I spend a good amount of time just trying to figure out how to do the moves in this new program! But the good news is the only person I am trying to be better than is who I was yesterday! 😎👊🏼
Are you ready to commit to working on yourself? On this team we invite the struggle but not the negativity, so find your positive attitude and send me a message!
Let’s get to work!
