Trying harder to celebrate the little things! A few tiny victories in my world lately.
☝️ I had a an exclusive hand lettered print of mine launch at @urbanoutfitters
+ 6 designs of throw pillows / art prints released at @target
! 🙌😍😭 Type my name in on their websites to check them out!
✌️ Em’s in size 3 diapers (😂) + eating table foods like a champ! 🙌 I’ll share more about our eating story later, but let’s just say a babe with an INSANELY sensitive gag reflex (the tiniest bit of texture + the entire contents of her stomach would end up on the floor 😭) mixed with a mama who is deathly terrified of choking doesn’t mix well. 😅 Watching her eat mac and cheese, real oatmeal + bites straight from my plate this week has been AMAZING!
🤟 I’m announcing that big thing I was teasing about a few months ago THIS WEEK! 👯♀️ It’s grown into something SO. MUCH. GREATER. than what my original plan was, and I can’t wait to share it with y’all! 🙌
What’s something little (or big!) going on in your life that’s worth celebrating!? Drop a comment below so I can cheer you on! 😘
Do you have control over your life.. Or does your life control you?
Are you giving 100% to every aspect of your life, or half arsing it?
When you are with your kids, do they have your full attention or are you thinking about work.. When your at work, are you all there, or are you wishing you were with your kids.
What does work life balance look like to you?
Just a thought for your Tuesday 💛💛💛
I woke up this morning with a surprise gift from the Universe (again. Because she’s magic like that.) Being a hairstylist, of course I follow other stylists + companies within the industry. This morning I saw a new post from @xostylistxo
and her recent story + struggle with her Crohns and Invisible Illness Awareness Week. .
It hit me like a ton of bricks. But in such a wholesome way, like I’m not alone in the struggle. If you’re unaware of who she is, Ash Fortis is a Badass stylist in the industry with insane color talents. Seriously go look at her feed 🌈 And with her talents comes lots of traveling, spotlight, hairstyling and education opportunities, etc. But living with a chronic illness can literally stop you some days from chasing your dreams, it’s soul crushing. .
I always wondered if there were other hairstylists or beauty professionals living and working through health issues like myself. Like, there’s no way I’m the only one. And I know how lonely, frustrating, exhausting, hopeless, maddening, etc it can be. And after Ash shared her story, and continues to do so, I couldn’t help but feel like I’m joining this rad tribe of women who get it, but perceiver regardless of what their pain or body says. .
I’ll be posting more this week on #invisibledisabilitiesweek
which is October 14-20. Regardless if you’re a hairstylist or not, I feel like this is something that will resonate with so many people. And remember just because you can’t see someone’s pain, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist 💕 We’re little warriors out here showing who we are instead of what we have 💪🏼

Build the kind of life that says I told you so, without having to say a word.
They say dream BIG! They say you can be Anything You want, and than the same people come around and discourage us to not dream at all🤯
So we can be more like them. So we can be REALISTIC
We're going to have people tell us we cant do something
"You need to be more realistic" You need to quit being such a dreamer" "You need to quit talking about all these things you want to do, and get something realistic
I've never understood that about society.
You better be pissed when people doubt you. Dont give in, dont be like everybody else. Dont give up, dont settle because things get hard.
Nobody believed I look the way I do now when I was 25 pounds heavier and chubby. Now the cuties wanna hit me up, now the bros want to be my friend. Now all of a sudden I'm "Jacked" Ha 😂
Be a silent worker💪

*3 weeks post show*
Been trying my best not to indulge in all the foods like I always do post show 👎
Im tired of always setting my self back for making poor food choices post competition, So this time around I promised myself that I was going to do things differently 👊.. Not gonna lie, first 4 days after competition I did allow myself to eat anything I wanted but after that I ease on the food and went back to my regimen.. 3 weeks post competition Im still doing my 5:30 a.m. Fasted cardio, still hitting the gym with intensity (not heavy weight) and back to my regular diet (6 meals a day, eating every 2 to 3 hours). Regimen is obviously not as hardcore as the Prep days and I do allow myself to have my weekly cheat meals on the weekend.. Really excited for what's to come, not planning on giving up till I reach my goal.. This is my passion and this is the promise that God put in my heart. I truly feel this is my true calling in life, and it is through this sport that I plan to serve God 🙏❤.. Im ready for whatever it takes 👊💪 Phil4:13

AHE is a community of busy people. Our students work full time, run businesses and farms, are home-schoolers and at-home parents. Our students, staff and faculty make significant sacrifices to study, support and teach Homeopathy. Why? Because it works. And it’s worth it.
But in real, everyday life, how do you study and stay committed to your dreams when life seems never to slow down? How do you manage that daily dance of prioritization when the laundry needs to be done, the kids are screaming, the dog needs a walk and the cat left (what you hope is) a hairball on your new materia medica book?
In the first week of full-time study at AHE students spend a full day learning about integrative wellness. By understanding the ways that food, movement, meditation and holistic practices keep us afloat, we can help our clients to reach greater degrees of health.
Of course, we have to walk our walk… so students are asked the question, “What self care have you done in the last 24 hours?” There were beautiful examples of pre-dawn walks, long soaks in a tub, and how petting a cat is meditation.
How do you optimize your time? How do you remember to eat, drink water, exercise, sing, laugh and love when the pressure is on? How you are maximizing your potential and realizing your dreams?
Work Be complicated af My niggas still in School 😩 shit ain’t easy Out Here #Dreamchaser
: “Okay guys, it’s go-time. I’m on a bike I haven’t ridden before again. I’m actually really scared but I’m going to try my best. This is for everyone out there who’s ever been told they’re not good enough. This is also for the dreamchasers just like me and those that never surrender. I love you guys.”
So what happened on Day 1: Race 1 of the Malaysian Ducati Cup (Oct 6th)?
I failed my launch so everyone including the safety car left me still at the grid 😅
Chased. Managed to catchup to some riders by Turn 9. Overtook.
Tank slapper at Turn 15 (will upload this in Race 2 clip).
And the bike was experiencing shifter issues. As you can see in the video, I could not downshift at the corners of the two fast straights (Turns 1 & 15). By 7th lap, the bike was stuck in Gear 3. I look down at my rearset/footpegs; the shifter had came loose as the nut flew off. I was actually really scared that moment. But I managed to improve my laptime by 6 seconds compared to my qualifying time before the shifter problem... on used tyres.
By chance, the guy who was infront of me (supposedly 2nd place) had the same issue. He was stuck in gear 6. I saw him stalled at Turn 15.
So I rode it out in Gear 3 through 45 turns (3 laps x 15 Sepang turns) and crossed the finish line, taking 2nd place.
That was a very intense race for me 😅 Bike had several issues but I managed... I’m really glad that even with all the struggles I made it past the chequered flag.
I will compile the footage for Race 2 (my highside. POV/on-board angle only) at a later date and explain what happened.
for believing in me until today. Ayai (team owner) & Eddie (team owner, chief mechanic) make an appearance in this clip. This race opportunity means the world to me. Cheers to @dainesemy
for keeping me safe as always.
Some clips are taken by @zul.zaed
so credit goes to him.
All clips otherwise are filmed by my GoPro #Hero5

“I refuse to live as half of myself because other people can’t handle all of me.”(Rachel Hollis)
How many of you have done this?👆How many of you have made yourself smaller to make other people more comfortable with who you are? How many of you hide because you’re afraid of being judged?🙋♀️ Stop living as though your life doesn’t matter. Stop dulling your shine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You never know who’s watching and who you’re inspiring.
Just be you.♥️
CALLING ALL PARENTS!!! 🙋🙌 Seriously...if you have not switched to Banana pankaces by now you are missing out!👇😍👇 💛Simple ingredients...1 mashed Banana, rolled Oats and 2 Eggs, but you can always spice them up with cinnamon, vanilla, dark chocolate chips, raspberries...or whatever you want!💛 My kids love making these and eating these! 😍
Quick and easy for a busy morning!😮 Enjoy!!!!!😀

Love the fact that I am getting more and more comfortable with being uncomfortable!!!! I'm convinced that real change and growth happens when you push past your comfort zone and dream and wish for more!!!! I just did Liift chest&triceps and was challenged again(after I knocked over my #superpower
juice!👇) A bonus round of regular&tricep pushups?!😳Yep, not using my arms much today.
Time to check in with my accountability group! I Couldn't ask for a more supportive group of people to do this with!
And now? Let’s do this Monday.👊
♥️In case no one had told you today:♥️ You are beautiful
You are here for a reason
You are never alone
You are amazing
You don’t have to do it all
You deserve grace
You are loved
Sending all the love to you wherever you’re at♥️
All the Sunday morning feels here today.👇 So much to do but knowing it can wait while we just soak the little people in and embrace the quietness(I know it won’t last!😜). Every day is a chance to start again. To be thankful for the grace we’ve been given every morning.♥️ Now? I think it’s breakfast time! Gonna try to make some homemade granola. What’s on your plate for the morning?🤔 Enjoy the start to this day.😊 It’s time for coffee!!😀
My grind is bigger then me, I’m just trying to prepare a foundation for my future Wife and children to be!🔐 #dreamchaser
