Reality Check

Reminder… just because it looks like someone has it all together on social media doesn’t mean that’s always true. 💕

I should be in Mexico today on an all expenses paid vacation that I worked my butt off for. 🍍

Reality: I’m in Massachusetts. Trying to figure out a last minute move after a mini flare up of anxiety and depression.

I didn’t want to be the third wheel on vacay.

I was nervous to fly to Mexico alone.

I have a great job that I love. An awesome place to live, and soon a new one. And for the most part tend to have my you know what put together, but I have my obstacles too.

I’m sharing all this not for sympathy. I’m honestly quite happy with my decision, but because I never want to pretend my life is perfect.

And reality is: no one has it all together. So next time you look at that “perfect” person remember… their reality is probably very different than their “gram”. ✌️

Never ever go it ALONE

Today I got to welcome a bunch of new ladies to my coaching team and it reminded me of exactly how I felt when I started coaching.
.
Kind of lost.
Hopeless on my own health & fitness journey.
Insecure. 
Alone.
.
Never in a million years did I think I would actually be successful with this. Then I learned something…
There were a lot of other ladies out there feeling that exact same way.
.,
Feeling like they were the only ones who struggled with their weight.
The only ones lacking self control with a jar of peanut butter.
The only ones without a “girl gang” of friends.
The only ones completely uncomfortable in their own skin.
.
My one goal with coaching was never to help people lose weight. It was never to get people super fit with six pack abs. It was not even to educate them about nutrition (even though I love that too).
.
My number one goal has always been to help women not feel ALONE on their journey and with their struggles. 💕
And now I’m creating a whole community of women who are passionate about doing the same and that is the best feeling in the world. 👯
.
Trust me, I’ve been there too and I PROMISE you don’t have to go it alone. Just a reminder that you are never ever alone. Always here. 😘

Reminder 💕

You are not fat.
You are not ugly.
You are not shy.
You are not alone.
You just have yet to see the strength inside of you. 
The beautiful person you really are.
You have yet to discover that your beauty isn’t defined by your weight.
That you deserve the love you give to everyone else.
That you are capable of anything you desire as long as you are brave enough to try.
Once you realize the power of loving yourself NOW, right where you’re at, you’ll watch your world change. 💕
You are strong.
You are beautiful.
You are capable.

Your MIND affects your VIBE. 🙌💕

Confession: Whenever I get stressed, anxious, or depressed, my mind defaults to one thing…
I HATE my body. I’m GAINING weight. I don’t look good.
.
Now, this is not healthy, and is something I am ACTIVELY working on changing, but one thing that does always help is a little reality check. 
It’s really easy to SPIRAL a thought in your mind. True or not you start to BELIEVE it. It becomes FACT. Truth.
.
Reality # 1: Aside from a tan (please come back summer) these two pictures look the exact same. One is 6 months ago, when I felt just fine. One is last week.
.
Reality # 2: Disclaimer: I usually HATE the scale. But it is a good measure of REALITY.
Well this past weekend I HAD to step on it (for a really EXCITING project I can’t quite tell you about yet 😉 ) and to my surprise I was the same weight I always am.
.
PROOF that I was creating my reality solely in my HEAD.
Remember what you think you will eventually BECOME. Change your thoughts, and you’ll change your life
