Long post but bear with me because this is usually a picture I keep under wraps but I feel inspired to share it today. 🤞
Left was 2014: I was living away from home and absolutely loving all the new experiences I was having. 🌍 I remember recognizing I was on a self destructive path and trying to be more health conscious at the time but I had no idea where to start. 🙈 So instead I opted for baggy clothes and "the angles" whenever possible. This was a most unflattering Where's Waldo 🕵️ Halloween costume that somehow managed to slip through my otherwise carefully structured smoke and mirrors effects I clung to in order to keep people from seeing how unhealthy I had let myself become. 💅💁♂️
Right is 2018: I remember feeling so comfortable and, dare I say it, even "sexy," 😳 this weekend I got dressed up for a Broadway show.🏙️ I had learned what my body needed and how to indulge without completely falling off the fitness wagon.🍓🥙🍩 More so even than the physical difference in these two women I can see the mindset change from feigning confidence to actually exuding it!!😊
I hope everyone is having a great day (despite the weather if you're in Boston like me🌧️) and has a transformation story of their own to reflect on today. .
If you don't, and are looking for something new to try, feel free to DM me 🤗

That picture on the left is when I decided to become an Online Health Coach and invite others to join my very first Online Accountability group. When I posted that pic on the left, I then put my phone down and ran away because I was so scared. What would people think?
The truth is this lifestyle had saved me at my rock bottom. Sick, barely surviving Motherhood, my hubby was about to be on bed rest for 6 weeks, I had no help with my kids. I was a mess. This saved me. If I got in my 20 minute workout and drank my shake, I won the day. I prayed and hoped I would never give up on myself so I could continue bettering myself to be the Mom and Wife I knew I could be. I wanted to stick with this so bad because I was changing and felt soooo much better physically and mentally. Becoming a Coach and sharing my journey publicly kept me accountable. I didn’t want to give up on myself or put myself last like I’ve always done in the past.
The me now is confident! I will never give up on myself or the women I am helping. I’ve been through many obstacles, bumps in the road, heartbreak etc. and I’m still here showing up for YOU and for ME. Listen... I can’t make you do the work, but I can provide support, cheer you on and believe in you when you don’t believe in yourself because I was there! If I can do this you can do this! Always here to help and answer questions about what I do, without any pressure - I just want to help! Always just a message away. 💋 Xoxo.
We are all born with a some wild inside. However over time many of us adapt to societal standards. We do what we “should” do , we conform. And slowly over the years that wild side inside of us dies. However, that only happens though if you let it. You can always reclaim the wild inside of you. I used to care soooo much about what others thought about me. It held me back... BIG TIME! When you stop listening to the opinions of others and begin to Follow your internal instincts and do what you wild burn heart compels you to do, the magic will come. Stay wild my friends🖤
Crushed my 20 minute cardio workout just in time before the kids woke up. Post workout cuddles with my babies are the best. Time to #adult
now and get Madi off to school! Have a great day!
Me thinking “oh no, I forgot my hat”. 😜. .
Just kidding. A night out in Boston calls for full hair and makeup. Got to look good for this gorgeous city 😉.
And can you understand why I’m slightly obsessed with Boston? This view 😍.
Big time shout out to this guy today. I was in a rut - it’s end of the month and I’m behind on quota, the house is a mess, I’ve prepped zero meals for the week, I’m exhausted, and I had absolutely no motivation to go to class.
But this amazing human came home from work (wondering what I’m still doing at home and on the couch), and after some silliness and laughs at my patheticness, he gave me an ultimatum: I could either come with him to OrangeTheory or I could go to class - but I couldn’t stay home.
Because of him, I decided to take a Lyft to class (so I wouldn’t be any later than I already was), and I had one of the best Lyft rides ever. My driver was SO cheerful, was playing great music, dancing to the music, and shared that he’s working towards his MBA and has always thought about law school. I told him my story (how I’d been out of school 12 years before finally going to law school), and he then said that hearing that was inspiring and that it made him feel good to know that he could always leave it as an option. And then I got to enjoy the cool Fall air on my walk home after class.
This whole thing totally turned my day around. I would feel a million times worse if I had skipped class and blown that time, the money, and the resources to better myself. I am so grateful for this guy every day, and today is no exception ❤️ @russval

Sometimes it’s nice to SLOW down! .
After my workout today I spent some extra time stretching and relaxing. We live in a world where it seems like we are always busy and there is never enough hours in the day. I feel it too sometimes. But taking sometime for yourself and workout, stretch, read a book, ahhh it does wonders!! .
What did you do for yourself today??
😂😂 Sorry if the language offends you but this was posted in one of my running groups and cracked me up.
Every time I train for a marathon I get a craving for a specific food. First marathon was dried cherries, last marathon was marshmallows. Unfortunately this training cycle my craving is doughnuts. 🍩🍩 We now celebrate Doughnut Saturday in our house.
This photo was taken last year in Dubai at Barasti Beach Club. In that moment I had no worries, I didn't think about what would I be doing today (Sept 23rd 2018) or where would I be. I was just living....I realized I'm still that way today. I wake up and live my life day to day. I don't plan too much for the future. In a way I can see how it can be bad but for every bad there's a good right? We can die anytime and here we are working everyday killing ourselves without taking a break. We don't realize how much we put ourselves through until you crash and you're forced to take a break from everything. We don't realize how much we neglect our loved ones because we are so busy working. We don't even take time to spend the money we work so hard to get. Can this be what life is about??? For those hard working people out there good for you but remember to take care of you first! Any job will replace you the next day once you drop dead.
P.S. I'm not saying be irreponsible and don't push for your career goals to come true. Just saying balance is key.
I had such a horrible day today.....I just needed yall to know that you need a break sometimes 🤗🤗
Loving these Fun Fall activities as a Fam! What is your favorite fall project to do with the kids? 🍁🎃🌻
I saw a bunch of apple picking photos this weekend....anyone go apple picking yet?! Check out this healthy version of homemade apple sauce that you can make with those freshly picked apples for today’s recipe of the day:
4 lbs. quartered apples (like Golden Delicious, Gala, McIntosh, Honeycrisp, or Jonathan) cored
1 cup water
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
3-4 1-inch strips lemon peel
1. Place apples, water, cinnamon, lemon juice, and lemon peel in a large saucepan
2. Bring to a boil over medium heat
3, Reduce heat to low and gently boil, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 30 minutes, or until apples are soft
4. Remove lemon peel
5. Mash until applesauce is desired texture
After a long weekend full of entertainment, and interacting with friends and family, I am wiped!
As a kid, I was 100% extroverted. No question about it. But as I have gotten older, I find myself more introverted. Needing to be on my own to refresh and recharge, feeling drained after days with people, and feeling overwhelmed in large crowds.
So after meeting tons of new people on Saturday, and the crowds and long day that was the Street Party, I needed a long nights rest. I find days after these situations, I’m exhausted. Wiped out, needing space, and so dang eager to get back into my routine! So sleeping in, a cup of tea, and a good book was exactly what the doc ordered ❤️
What do you consider yourself? Introverted or extroverted?

Best part of my lunch today: a sun gold kiwi! So delicious! 🙌🏼😋 What did you have for lunch today?! (Mine lunch is in my story!)
“You can do side-bends or sit-ups... but please don’t lose that butt!” 😂
When I first started my healthy lifestyle I was living in maternity pants and as a new Mom I refused to spend money on new clothes for my new “Mom bod”. One day I opened up to someone about how insecure I felt, looking for reassurance that I would feel like myself again someday. Instead that person said “After 2 kids your body will never be the same!” 😫😱😭 Well... that person was right... I will never be the same now that I’ve found this lifestyle that has given me the strength and confidence to rock this “Mom of 2 bod”! And on top of that I’ve made it my job and have the ability to help others take the plunge and start their healthy lifestyle too.
