Still modifying, still working, still pushing forward.
When I found myself on the floor of my workout room ten days ago, I was so MAD. So so so mad!
But today, I’m actually a teeny bit grateful. This has forced me to slow down. To focus. To challenge myself in different ways. To become a better instructor.
An injury doesn’t have to STOP you. You CAN keep moving forward and getting better. Push through the emotion of it, then figure out how to keep going. ❤️
Your circumstances do not define you. No matter how challenging an obstacle is 😫, no matter how let down you feel 😔, no matter how hard it is to get out of bed 🛏 , no matter how much your heart is broken 💔, no matter how you feel like giving up 😓 , no matter how crazy the day is 🤯 - whatever it is - only YOU hold the keys to your own happiness. 💝 Keep on smiling, beautiful!
Our church has been going through a serious focusing on heart transformation rather than behavior modifications, so this verse really stood out to me as I’ve been reflecting on what’s buried deep down in my heart. What comes out when you’re pushed to your limit, when you’re forced over the line? That’s what’s truly in your heart. A hard pill for me to swallow, but I want to face it so that I can fix it with the help & grace of God✨🙌🏽♥️
Thank goodness for rest days! My entire body is so sore from the last two days. It was a beautiful day, so my sister and I walked to the dog park with the 3 dogs + Logan. Logan loved all of the surroundings and smiled the entire time. I love being able to spend my days with him and not have to worry about work, daycare, not enough time, etc.
This week has been absolutely craptastic -
and it’s only Wednesday!! 🙈🤣
But here’s what I know - the triple F’s are really all I need! *
It’s really that simple!
(Ok laughter and sweat help too!)
Got to hang out with my friend @thrujoyseyes
today and play downtown and as always throwing it out there - LIFE IS A GIFT!! ❤️
Did I start this journey to lose weight? You better believe it. I had baby weight that I was ready to get rid of and old clothes I wanted to fit into. .
BUT this journey gave me so much more that shedding a few pounds!!! It gave me confidence, a new mindset about taking care of myself, a lifestyle that is doable for even the busiest teacher mama, tons of energy, and an outlet to relieve stress & frustrations each day. .
The number on the scale, extra skin, stretch marks or a little jiggle doesn’t matter one bit!! EMBRACE IT ladies!! What matters is that you choose you every day and make your health a priority! You will reap ALL the benefits if you decide that your health is worth it! PINKY promise!!!
when you find the person who is there for you no matter what, motivates the hell out of you and challenges you every day... never let them go ✌🏼
Much needed self care! New nails and massage chair while I wait on the youngest to get his mop trimmed!
One of the many reasons i love @freskincare
(aside from the amazing products) is that they care about our environment.
Normally, for every skincare set sold, FRÉ plants an Argan tree of life in Morocco to fight deforestation. But for this week only, they will be planting THREE trees for every Detox Trio sold! 🌲
On top of that, they are offering my followers 30% off this trio when you use my code EDM at checkout!! 🙌🏼
Let’s help our skin and planet together 🤗 #detoxtheplanet #detoxyourskin #freskincare
After neglecting myself for a couple months, 30 minutes in the gym was a bit torturous. Only got 2 miles in on the elliptical, and about 10 minutes with various weights. Why is it so hard for me to get back on track?! #help #gym #gymtime #backatit #sweattherapy
Hard work = Amazing results

I wanna know... have you done a PiYo Live class?
It make look like just a hat to you... but to me, it represents the amazing people who have given me the honor of helping them to start (or restart) their own journeys.
Sure, I love some new swag, but I love watching people become their best, healthiest selves even more.
What makes you smile? What’s something that literally makes you giddy inside when you carve out time to do it? For me, it’s putting in my earbuds, turning on my favorite music, getting in the gym and pushing myself. I love the challenge, the sweat, feeling stronger than the day before, and especially the endorphin rush after a sweaty workout!! What’s your favorite way to feed your soul? I hope you have something that truly makes you happy. Maybe it’s cuddling up with a good book, watching a scary movie, taking a hot bath.... Don’t forget Mama, you deserve to spend some time doing something that lifts YOU up! It’s not selfish, it’s necessary! #endorphins #selfcare #fillyourcup #livethefitlife #gymtime #metime #healthymama #healthyfamily #committobefit #feedyoursoul #sweattherapy
Today’s sweat therapy brought you from GODS COUNTRY ☀️
Being able to bring my workouts with me everywhere I go has been such a game changer for me! I can keep them on my phone 📲 or play them from any device that has WiFi!
So even with traveling back + forth between home and the hospital I can still do something for me! This way I am able to be here for support for my family and my grandma as she heals 🙏
