FLAT BELLY NOW!!! Hello abs—in just 3 days. 👆🏻👆🏻You’ve seen headlines like this👆🏻👆🏻
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. 👀And I just read this one on a very popular health and fitness magazine👀😫😳🙄 It takes so much healthy food to change body composition. It Drives me bananas when I hear the standard "just eat less!" or "cap your calories at 1200 and you'll be fine!" No. You won't.
You'll be starving and dive into a pint of ice cream or swing through a drive thru because you're so freaking hungry. Hell, I would too if I had to cap my calories or eat less. Wait, scratch that.
I did! I used to do that and I have been there. Never Again!
If you're ready to stop struggling once and for all and gain access to all my tips and tricks that keep me lean and on the right track, me and my girls are starting next week in my online fitness support group: Team Wellness Warriors.
Message me or comment below if you're sick of yoyo dieting and ready for wellness.
Today, I wore shorts in public. Why, because it was finally sunny & warm-ish. Should I have? Probably not because now I can put a red check mark next to every symptom of the NyQuil commercial! Stupid man flu...😷

I just wanted to let you know 😘👑🌟❤
Could I repeat myself anymore?
I know you know, I’ve already told you, but I’m going to say it again.. I AM GRATEFUL.
Rising out of the dark night of the soul may have taken me bloody
y e a r s ; it may have almost taken me out ; but it didn’t.
Any now I’m dancing in the mutha fuckin’ light, and holy MOLY it feels good.
Life feels good.
Rising feels good.
Sobriety feels AMAZING.
It’s a brilliant thing.
So to you, the humans in the trenches... Keep.On.Going.
I know it’s dark, I know it’s hard. I know there are days that the loneliness is paralyzingly and the desire to numb out is enormous.
But don’t stop, ok?
You gotta keep going.
You have to find a way to trust;
find a way to take the next best step.
It’s worth it.
The pain, the tears, the cravings... it’s all worth it on the other side.
What are you grateful for?
Share below, and tag a human your grateful for!
It can be tough meeting 'The One' when you're single & sober. It's real easy meeting 'The Just For Tonight' though when you're off your fucking face with no inhibitions & wearing your beer googles...😳🍻
When you're clean & serene & looking for more of a spiritual connection instead of a chemical one, where do you start?! I'm going to be honest, I have absolutely no idea! I do know though that bars have got to be the worst place EVER to meet anyone when you're in recovery...or not in recovery for that matter! If you're wanting stimulating conversation from someone who's half cut, think again. Prepare yourself. You're going to hear that much shit, you won't know whether to offer them a breath mint or toilet paper! 😷💩
There's nothing more unattractive than a drunk guy stumbling around a bar, slurring his words, being a complete sleeze bag & thinking he's Gods gift to women. You're not charming me by telling me I'm the most beautiful girl you've seen all night, when you've clearly got vodka vision, & I just heard you saying the exact same thing to a ladyboy at the end of the bar (when in Thailand)! Sorry mate I'm single not fucking desperate, & unfortunately for you I'm sober so I'm not falling for your bullshit! Although you'd probably of had the old me at hello... 😩😂
Drunk women (🙋🏽) falling off their own legs look even worse! Tequila is actually notorious for turning a solid 8 into a sloppy 2 in approximately 5 shots. Then, after one too many trips to the bathroom to powder our noses (in both senses), we end up with our jaws swinging faster than Tiger Woods 9 iron & looking like our face just got gang banged by a box of crayons. If you're slurring into your wine glass & need to take your high heels off to walk, it's probably time to call it a night pet...🤡🖍🎨
By getting sober you can stay safe in the knowledge that you'll never wake up from a blackout next to someone ever again & wonder who the fuck they are. Meeting people in a bar drunk is like going food shopping hungry... you bring home shit you don't need! If that's not a reason in itself to not get wasted I don't know what is! 🤦🏽♀️🍷
Have a fab week & remember sober is the new sexy!😎
Agitations slowly wash away, soil and suds together sway. Revolution s, evolutions, towards solutions of the soul. Washed clean, made pristine, but not by the power of man’s machine. Set free from the cycles through which I spin, by a great loss, a sacrifice, that achieved a win. #haventsatatalaundrymat
in a long time got me feeling my #rhymes #soberliving #recoverythroughfaith
Gramma told me I had to go back to the store for the romper.
She basically ordered me to.
I went back for it. There was only one left.
Gramma made me do it. 🤷🏻♀️
Yeah! Another sober weekend coming to an end. Grateful to be hangover free, and starting a new week in recovery. Hit that like button if you’re right there with me!
Incredible (early) birthday dinner with my BFF and her mom at @aptekapgh
- an all vegan Polish restaurant. Swipe to see the two small plates that I devoured. 🤤😍
1. Pierogis (two kinds) - mushroom + sauerkraut and potato + smoked cabbage. Topped with beet chutney, cucumber salad, house yogurt, and mustard.
2. Placki Ziemniaczane - potato pancakes, red peppers + paprika, house yogurt.

Happy Earth Day.. No matter where you in the world, beaches, deserts, lakes, mountains, cities, I hope you can appreciate where you are and are grateful. 🤙🙌🙏🏽
Said nobody ever... Back in the day- when I was drinking/using/heavily addicted, I’d always say the opposite of this - “man, I really wish I didn’t get messed up last night”. I must have said that 10,000 times until I actually did something about it. I’m just happy that I finally had the courage to change. #bethechange #sobrietyisworthit
Happy Earth Day! What a great day to be alive. And what a great world to be alive in! Yes, we live in an imperfect world, and I don’t need to tell you all that’s imperfect about our home planet. Today we at Wyld Joy we used gratitude as resource to connect us to courage, joy and aliveness and celebrate all that is good on this earth. Our hearts go out to the family and fans of @avicii
Sunday Spa Treat with my cousin, with an invigorating Rasul Treatment (lime and lemongrass salt scrub and chocolate scented mud) and ending with a delightful British afternoon tea. She had prosecco and I had an orange juice, although she assured me 'one wouldn't hurt'. I told her the one bottle that 'one' would lead to, most assuredly would hurt! I traded meat and fish sandwiches for vegetarian options and we scoffed the lot. Completely relaxed, completely happy, completely sober 🍋🍫🍓🍰🎂🍩🚫🥂
Living a truly authentic life is a freedom way beyond expectations.

Sometimes people in recovery can start to wonder if they are "normal". They start to compare to other people they think are normal, and when they don't equal up that is when despair sets in. Hence the saying "compare and despair". What is normal anyway? Having parents that stayed married for 60 years or having parents that didn't even make it a year? Growing up in a single parent home or one with two dads? Being the only child or one of 10? Maybe your parent passed when you were 8, maybe your parent lived to 100. Maybe you like to eat raw eggs, maybe you take your coffee with butter. Maybe you suffered from postpartum depression, maybe you were in bliss when your kids were born. We all have a story, we all have a "thing". Some of us have alot of "things". What is normal? Who decides?
You decide. You decide at some point that your life and the circumstances you encounter, and choose, are normal. Once you can do that stress will fall away and life will become a touch easier.
