I started a new Boot Camp style workout program today....umm it was 22 minutes long and it made me feel like I had never worked out before in my life🙎🏼🤷♀️Here are a few clips of my ATTEMPTS at actually completing the tasks! I modified HEAVILY today because I just could not do them but I'm excited about getting much stronger👊🏻 in the next 8 weeks! Stay tuned for the progress reports!

I amaze myself almost everyday on how patient I am with myself & my body. My strength, flexibility & mind control definitely did not happen over night. I often still come up short when I let life get in the way but hey, it happens 🤷🏽♀️ The only thing I can do is recognize when I'm off (which is a mental task in itself) then get right back on track.
I saw this pop up on my memories from last year and this is still one of my favorite quotes. You know I've been on my weight loss journey for about 6 years now. I lost 30 lbs but gained it back. Every time I start a new chapter, I learn something new and start to gain knowledge. Yes, I'm not in college and yes I don't have an exact career I'm interested in, however I'm looking into some things. Yes, I'm single but I'm focusing on me. Yes, I'm still on my journey. But this time it's not about the number on the scale or how I look. It's how I feel physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I'm stabilizing my blood sugar. I'm finally really working on me for me. I want to have a healthy present and future. I want to be healthy and confident. It's taking me way longer than most but I'm getting there at my own pace.
Where it all started! I couldn’t believe it when I found out I was pregnant! Also it explained a lot! For a week my body was in shock and I was absolutely exhausted. To be honest the whole first trimester all I did was sleep 😂. Now even in the second trimester I’m still exhausted, but lucky for me that all I suffered from. No morning sickness 😷 or any other pregnancy symptoms 🤰🏼. What kinda freaked me out, was I really pregnant???
Recovery is an essential part of fitness! It doesn't matter if you are burning 2000 calories or 500 calories, you have to have protein help recover and grow your muscles. Protein comes from many different sources. I ❤️steak, I ❤️chia and I ❤️dub 3.0. These are my go to's to keep they energy up for all of my crazy intense workouts! You never achieve the body you want by just eating what you want when you want. It takes serious commitment and consistency to good clean nutritious food! #dubnutritionviproom
Mama, today we celebrate YOU. Thank you for being the unbelievable pillar of strength that you are to us. Thank you for a life of sacrifices and dedication to seeing freedom, democracy and justice for generations to come. My life has been richer for being in your space, sharing your time, because of your love and wisdom. This picture was taken when I was a young girl out of school, the opportunity for my young life to be touched by you and your spirit is a blessing I carry forever. So much live and respect for you Big Mama. May God bless you and keep you for years to come. We love you dearly... #MamaWinnie#WinnieMandela#BigMama#Blessed#MyJourney
LEFT: NOTHING in my closet fit well. Felt very heavy, uncomfortable with the extra weight and not as high energy as I needed/wanted to be to keep up with my two littles. 😫
RIGHT: About a year later, I dropped all my pregnancy weight. Worked out 5 days a week and ate clean 70% of the time. 💪🏻🥕
Was it easy? N to the O. But a mama's got goals. 🌟
Full video on Facebook but this is me being real for the day. We are so often bombarded by perfect bodies on Instagram with 0 struggle. Seems like everyone who posts a good body is in love with every aspect of themselves. We all struggle with certain imperfections but it's learning how to embrace and accept it and move on!
. I was a big girl all my life. I knew i wasnt viewed as pretty and skinny, more like fat and black.. (im just being honest). Growing up was hard so when I became interested in fitness my life changed. In 2009, to me I was in the best shape of my life 175 pounds 16 percent body fat. I was feeling pretty good. Life changed in 2010 when my mom passed and then again in 2013 when I was going thru a divorce, pregnant and jobless. I fell off the fitness dedication train and only went when I felt like it. After the baby I went into this other stage in life that is so unhealthy but I was trying to drink the pain away.
In 2015 my nephew passed and sent me into another spiral.... the end of 2016 I realized I packed on 40 pounds with in 2 years.
January 6 2017 (the day my 3 year process of divorce was finalized) so I decided enough is enough and started the journey again .... I am down a total of 32 pounds I feel good, i know I've killed it thus far ... I still have goals I aim to achieve, but for now I am pleased

This was written on a fortune cookie I opened last month, and since I’ve held the words very close to my heart. •
We are all familiar with going home and sharing with our friends and loved ones our day. We talk about joyful moments, dreadful moments and the people we encountered. If you notice, each experience produces this wave of emotions that takes us on a journey. While you are reflecting on your own day, change your perspective to the experiences you created for others. Did you radiate your light and enthusiasm with others? Or did you create a disturbance in their day? You have no idea the power your words and actions actually do have on another, so be mindful of your interactions. Yep, I’m super dorky - - give more hugs!! Love is the ONLY answer. Today and everyday, know you are unaware of the effect you have on others. •
My acne journey..
