Happy Friday eve!!! Haha
I saw this and had to post it, it is just SO true. I have tried the fad diets, fad workouts and nothing has stuck in the past. Is last a week, maybe two and then be back to my old habits ... habits are hard to break. The only thing that worked for me was baby steps. Take one day at a time, one, goal at a time. Nothing will happen over night and only you have the power to make that change for yourself. I know it might seem impossible ( I’ve been there and still struggle with it everyday ) but with a tribe of great and encouraging individuals behind you, it can be done! Surround yourself with people that want to make the same change for themselves too and it will happen for you too. You got this!!! Let me know if you want to join my tribe!! I need you ❤️ #tribe #women #healthylifestyle #beachbody #workout #healthyfood #healthylife #happy #goals #ididit #onedayatatime #babysteps #yougotthis #80dayobsession #21dayfix
Anxious, sad, bored, lonely, angry, joyful, scared, excited, depressed, jealous, ashamed, guilty...
Just some of the common emotions we experience that can leave us turning to food. Why is this??
Eating emotionally is simply, eating for any other reason than fuel & nourishment. Emotional eating often happens when we want to change our emotional state.
When we want to change our emotional state it's usually because we feel uncomfortable or we don't want to deal with/process what's happening... for example ... feeling stressed doesn't always feel good so let's have some chocolate & wine to calm us down and increase our seratonin (happy feel good hormone).. or who wants to feel lonely? Food can be comforting and enjoyable and distract us from our reality ... or I feel excited & happy about this promotion so I deserve to eat the foods I wouldn't normally allow myself.
While these behaviours can make us feel better temporarily, we usually feel worse later and are left sitting with the emotions that we numbed out.
The ONLY way to break this cycle is to start understanding your emotions. You need to move through the fear and discomfort of how you feel and ask yourself what's going on? ... Why do I feel this way? .. Is this even "my stuff?" .. What am I avoiding?... I literally have these conversations with myself allll the time.
And sometimes I just sit with crappy emotions for a day... I will feel lonely or sad.. and without judgement I allow myself to feel this way and let it play out rather than stuffing it down with food. You aren't always going to feel joyful and happy and this is NORMAL!
Can you identify which emotions draw you to food?

Emptying the gas tank takes guts... I’m wondering how many people truly empty the tank when they tackle objectives.
What if we changed how we think about things to this mindset?
How much more productive would we be if we emptied the gas tank with everything we did throughout the day, everyday?
Would I be extremely wealthy? Would I own my own company worth a lot of money? Would things be a lot different for me now?
I can tell you that I definitely don’t empty the tank everyday with everything I do, but more often than not, I try pretty damn hard to.
Today I’m going to challenge myself with emptying the tank with all my tasks, let’s see how this goes... In this picture, I was giving it everything I had. When I finished and time was up I’m sure there was a way to keep going, but I truly felt everything was left out there in that stadium. In this event there is no doubt I emptied the gas tank...
Another lovely newer piece.
Not only did they send us to Mexico but they allowed us the opportunity to meet new like minded friends from different parts of our country. We became life long buds and since have seen each other in different states. I am so lucky to not only get to do what I love on a daily basis but I get to meet new people from all over the world. Don’t ever stop believing because dreams do come true. Cheers to my girls!🥂

God chose YOU to be the mother of your child(ren)! YOU have what it takes to lead them through this life. We are not called to do it alone... Lean on God and find other women who will lift you up during the difficulties of life. ❤️ YOU ARE NOT ALONE MAMA!
For those that know me well (particularly my mother)...you know that I've had a love for reading since I was 4 years old. I would lose myself in books in my childhood; being in that imaginative world of fantasy, drama, comedy, and tragedy in my teens; and finding spiritual depth in books today. There is something about words being poured out of someone's heart onto paper that just mesmerizes me! Perhaps this has been the groundwork for me to write a book...it waxes and wanes...sometimes I'm so motivated to write and can't get it out fast enough...other times it's just silence...there's nothing there to pour out. I'm so grateful for the community that supports me through this ebb and flow. Love all of you!
Feast your eyes on these beautiful little monsters.... online shop coming soon! #SCARYMONSTERS
I never thought that this would be my view at 5:30 or 6am. At least not for more than one day.
But this is the 4th day this week I got up and worked out with my girls. And honestly, it starts your day better than anything else!
And I also never have motivation the longer the day goes on.
You could do this with us!! #youcansitwithus #amworkout #homeworkout #healthylife #sweatingforthewedding #tribe

Masih ingat dalam ingatan, sewaktu kecil, kira-kira kelas 4 SD, saya pernah kembali ke rumah dengan kondisi menangis setelah bermain dengan tetangga. Setibanya di rumah, papa yg melihat saya menangis pun bertanya, "kenapa menangis?" Dengan masih terisak-isak saya mencoba menjawab, "tadi dipukul sama si A." "Lalu kamu cuma diam dan menangis?" Tanya papa.
Saya hanya bisa diam dan tak menjawab. Si A ini memang lebih tua dari saya dan badannya lebih besar kala itu.
Tidak mendengar ada jawaban, papa menyuruh saya kembali keluar dan memukul balik anak tersebut karena memang saya yg dipukul terlebih dahulu. "Jangan pulang kalau masih menangis. Anak papa gk boleh cengeng." Ucapnya mengiringi langkah saya keluar.
Sesuai dengan perintah papa, saya pun kembali dan memukul si A. Bukan dengan tangan, namun dengan balok kayu. Sia A pun jatuh tersungkur dan berdarah. Setelah itu saya kembali ke rumah dengan masih berusaha menahan tangis. "Sudah?" Tanya papa.
Saya menjawabnya dengan anggukan. "Cekcok mulut itu biasa, yg penting jangan sampai saling pukul. Kalau kamu berkelahi karena kamu yg pukul duluan, kamu yg papa pukul nantinya sampai babak belur. Tapi kalau kamu dipukul duluan, kamu mau kasih mati itu orang juga boleh." Kata Papa dengan tegas.
Itulah salah satu pesan papa yg masih saya ingat dan saya pegang sampai sekarang.

I’m beyond inspired by these incredibly strong & beautiful ladies... Each one has a story & a WHY that is unique to who they are & what they’re going through in life.
One lady wanted to get out of corporate America so that she could stay home with her infant daughter. By doing so, she’s been able to surpass the monthly income she would have ever earned at her job in just 2 yrs. WOW! .
Another beautiful lady, unfortunately, lost her unborn daughter midway through her pregnancy & fell into a deep depression. This company, this sisterhood, was exactly what she needed to pull her out of a very dark place. .
Another beautiful lady, with a darling family, wants to help her family financially, so that her husband will have some relief & will be able to be home more with the family. .
Another beautiful leader worked the Insurance industry for 15 yrs. After turning down numerous party invitations, a determined friend, said, come on, you could use some girl time, 🍷 & 🍕. That was exactly what spoke to her! (Wine and food!) .
When she arrived to find a woman driving a Beautiful white Mercedes & dressed to the 9’s, she thought, oh how sweet, her husband bought her that beautiful car.
Shortly after, she learned that woman actually earned that vehicle on her own doing something so simple people don’t believe they can have it as well.
Most of the time, it will take a big impact in ones life before they will take action. .
✅ Loss of a loved one
✅ Injury ✅ Miserable job
Most of the time, folks are okay, with a job, which, 97% of the time, will barely cover bills with nearly not enough to do what one desires. Are you familiar with the Feeling of being on a Hamster wheel? 🙋♀️
This was my life. ✅Wake up
✅Workout ✅Rush to get ready, get child ready, get them to school. ✅Drive 30 Min to work ✅Work 9 hours (including lunch)
✅Drive 40-60 Min Home. (Rush hour sucked)
✅ Eat, bathe children, clean up house and do it all over again the next day. 😑 I’m so grateful to be part of something bigger than myself. I’m actually able to change lives for people I know. .

Overflowing. Mostly overwhelmed. Divine beings living, giving, sharing, raising the vibration, loving, serving and pushing for more and more light. More discovery. More art. More love. More space. More connection. More impact. To be walking alongside my family in light I really do consider myself blessed beyond measure. I am right where I need to be. I am dancing light. Swirling in the stars. And high fiving the universe every single day. It’s time. It is time. To rise. To ascend. To love in full vigour again. I love you all. Photo credit @pandameetskoala
“We are the lucky ones” — you’ll find me quoting this saying of mine daily. And I really am. This sister, friend, soul tribe, warrior-queen and partner in LIGHT is one of the best things to happen to me. What a gift! I am learning. Growing. Expanding. Dreaming BIG. Unearthing. Smiling.... Always laughing. Always. @pandameetskoala
you are a treasure sent from the divine realm. I couldn’t be more honoured to be riding this mighty wave of life, magic, earth and growth with you. ‘You are saving us all.’ I love you Sister. I am so happy this picture captures the pure essence of our connection and journey so far. Here’s to the next 70 years 🔮🌎🙏🏾🌳🌿🌟 photo credit: @pandameetskoala
