Head Unicorn in Charge @RebelliaClothing 👗 Lifter🏋🏼‍♀️ Mental Health Warrior🗡 Wanderluster🌍 NASCAR Wife to @jeffcordero_ Self-love Sunday👇🏼

In 2017 I launched: 👗My company’s website (finally) 📡A podcast 🏋🏼‍♀️A training program 📚A children’s book 📦A subscription box 👯‍♀️I also completed my nutrition cert with intent to coach and I was running local women’s groups. I was overwhelmed and had a LOT on my plate but I was passionate about all these things so I thought the normal rules of the universe didn’t apply to me. What I found was that they do apply, and that I was selling my business short by splitting my focus. In 2018 I doubled down on my business, I immersed myself in education and I started to step back from the other things I was doing. While I would LOVE to be doing a zillion things I am finally giving my business the attention it deserves and am more likely to see the success I crave. I’m going into 2019 with my business, a small group of 1:1 nutrition clients, only 1 big new goal & biz-wise feel the best I ever had about where I’m at. #rebelbabe #entrepreneurlife #bossbabe #quadzilla 📸 @glitterlensphoto
I feel this so hard. The ONE year I actually set a weight goal, the opposite happened 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣
I want you to know that no matter how hard your life has been or what you have been through you CAN overcome it. You are still here. You’re still breathing. And so you still have work to do. Not everything “happens for a reason” some shit is just downright senseless. But you CAN find meaning and purpose. I’m not trying to be the most shredded, be the strongest, win at exercising, get the most likes, or be the most “inspirational.” I’m literally just putting every effort into living as full of a life as I can -and trying to make an impact on others through both my life and work. I don’t share to inspire. I don’t want people to want to be like me. I want people to want to be more like THEMSELVES. I want people to know they are NOT alone. I want people to know that people like me might look like I’m winning all day every day and I AM in my own way but I get my ass kicked too. Life punches me in the mouth on the daily and I’m not going to hide that- or pretend like it doesn’t phase me but I’m not going to pity myself for it either. We are not robots. We can’t live in a world of “NO EXCUSES” and other hardcore bullshit people would like you to believe. We are meant to live in shades of grey and GRACE. If someone like me can fight through the ashes and battle my past, my pain and my own mind in order to step into my greatness— so can you. I have no doubt. #rebelbabe #entrepreneurlife #thickthighssavelives #shopsmallbusiness #girlswholift #mentalhealthwarrior 📸 @glitterlensphoto
TRUTH 👆🏼Also, if you’re interested I am now documenting my self-love/self-care/mental health journey in weekly emails. The link to read Vol 1 is in my bio and you can subscribe from there if you want, just be aware you’ll also get weekly Rebellia emails too♥️ I might move some to my blog at some point later too if that’s easier 🤷🏼‍♀️ #mentalhealthwarrior #selflovegangster
MENTAL HEALTH UPDATE: Started therapy ✅ Re-evaluated self care ✅ Set new goals ✅ Scaled some things back✅ Re-defined balance ✅ Still not sleeping well & working on the anxiety. I’m feeling closer to my self and better about my training, nutrition, workload & home life. I’m starting a new newsletter series called Self-Love Sundays, documenting my journey. I’ll post more about it later ♥️ #rebelbabe #mentalhealthwarrior #entrepreneurlife #balancedaf #selfcare #selflove
I have put 3 years of actual blood, sweat & tears into creating, launching and growing @rebelliaclothing so I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful and honored I am to be featured in the upcoming @knowtribe book. My little baby business has only been in operation for a year and a half and I’m simply overwhelmed by how far we’ve come. BIG thank you to @erinmaynardphotography @whosthefaireststyling @arden_mclaughlin @glamour_kristin & my Rebellia Team for making this shoot happen today, all of our customers/supporters & to @jeffcordero_ for not only making this badass sign behind me, but for scooping me up when I am down, bringing me back to Earth when I’m losing my mind and for being the best damn friend and life partner a girl could ask for 💕💕 #entrepreneurlife #rebelbabe #vivalarebellia #quadzilla #fitpreneur
Too real lol 😅😬😩
GOALS: September is the time of year where I reflect on the goals I set back in January and evaluate where I’m at with accomplishing them. I then refocus on the things I haven’t yet accomplished, reevaluate my approach and then create a plan to SMASH them. I also take this time to set new goals for next year and get started working on them immediately. My point is, I don’t wait for Jan 1st to get started. I also don’t let Jan 1st be the only time I really motivate & discipline myself. Right now there is still A LOT on my plate I set out to do this year, but it’s cool, I thrive during crunch time 🤷🏼‍♀️😁 #rebelbabe #entrepreneurlife #eatsleepracerepeat makeup by @barileighfamous & @letellierskincare
I didn’t really take pics of myself while in Kauai but instead tried to capture a bit of the beauty around me. Made some new friends & some new plans 💕 I almost forgot how magical that island is. Can’t wait to go back 🌸 #wanderlust
This is my life on a loop. #cheezitgroovesaddict
Kicking the week off with a smirk 🤷🏼‍♀️Actively working on dragging myself out of a 10 month-ish fog. It is HARD to make changes. Sometimes habits can become so engrained that it feels impossible to get out of them. I realized that I’ve really hidden from insta stories & I think I put my life on autopilot. I don’t want to do that. I know that I want to close out this year on the highest note possible, so I’m going to work hard on myself to do that, for ME. ✨#rebelbabe #selfcare #entrepreneurlife #mentalhealthwarrior
Smiling because I am loved. Because I know myself, I know I’ll always prevail and my life is rooted in positivity. Shout out to my husband for being there for me, no matter how hard or how long I have to lean on him. You’re the real MVP @jeffcordero_ 🖤#grateful #rebelbabe #mentalhealthwarrior #stillsmiling #girlswithtattoos #pinkhairdontcare
Words to remember ♥️
MENTAL HEALTH: I’ve been a bit MIA because I’m currently working through some stuff. Family stuff. Mental health stuff. I’m not ready to share it yet, and I might not share everything when I am. One thing I will say is that recent events are pushing me to take a good hard look at myself presently and to be more proactive with my future. I’m never going to stop talking about mental health and mental illness because I know what it’s like to feel alone in it and I want you guys to know if you’re struggling with it, I’ve got your back. There is NO shame in getting yourself help, in going to therapy or in taking/looking into medication. What’s right for me may not be right for you. What works for you today, may not work in 5 years or even next year. Please take care of yourselves, love you guys 🖤 #rebelbabe #mentalhealthwarrior #girlswithtattoos Photo by @dani_nicole_photography hair @glamour_kristin makeup @champabeautyco
Dear Fitness, I haven’t been fair to you. I neglected you this past winter because of my depression. Just as I was about to welcome you back with open arms I had my surgery, so again you were placed on the back burner. Somewhere along the lines I started to resent you. I compared myself to others. I equated you and what my body looks like to my own worthiness. I hated that I felt like you were the majority of my identity and without you, I felt lost. But it’s not your fault. I owed myself a season, and I took more time than I should have. I blamed you and social media, for how I felt on the inside when you have both given me so much- a deeper bond with my husband, a tribe, my business and the ability to wear my strength on the outside. And now here I am, not feeling like my best self, but knowing that it’s possible. I know I have to find a new way to balance you with the rest of my very full life in a way that works for me, so we can move past this together. I’m trying. Self-love isn’t about always being perfect, it’s about giving yourself grace when you need it the most ♥️ #selflove #rebelbabe #womenwholift #progressnotperfection
