NO TIME FOR DESSERT TODAY FOLKS 🤣 I'M GOING FOR THE MAIN COURSE, LOL
I FOUND A NEW PAGE I LOVE & I'M GRATEFUL FOR HER KNOWLEDGE & WELLNESS ADVOCACY 🎯🏥❤@biohacker.md
I remember when I could see Advertisements after Advertisements of what alcohol has the potential to do to your liver, and that didn't MATTER! NOT ONE OUNCE!
FRIENDS, WE ONLY HAVE ONE LIVER & ONCE IT'S HAD ENOUGH...THERE'S LITTLE RECONCILIATION 🏥
I would find an excuse to make it OK, Mommy juice, bad day, holiday, etc...
I KNEW DEEP DOWN MY BODY DIDN'T FEEL GOOD, and I honestly had NO CLUE how much BETTER I could actually feel if I gave the SOBER life a SERIOUS SHOT 🚫 NOW I KNOW ♥️
🎬WHEN WE KNOW BETTER ~WE DO BETTER 👑
A SERIOUS STANDING OVATION FOR ALL MY FRIENDS WHO FIGHT HARD THROUGH THE GOOD TIMES & THE BAD TO GET HONEST WITH YOURSELF, LOVE YOURSELF, AND STAY SOBER 🙌🏻
I LOVE YOU SO DEARLY 😘

There’s beauty in our differences. Embrace yours. 🌟
It’s great to see my friend @colicchie
in Maryland putting in work with the @wearecloudgang
fam. Can’t wait to see him perform again tomorrow night! This guy is a true inspiration to many of us. Live ya homie!
Several time a year I go sober. Sometimes for a couple weeks, sometimes for a couple months. I've accepted the fact that my body does not shed fat when I drink. Some people seem to be able to make that work, I am not one of those people.
So I'll stop drinking for awhile to give my body a fighting chance, and during those times I start to notice the peculiar way that we as a society glorify drinking. Please don't take offense, I'm not trying to take away your wine or margs. But if you take a step back and think about the way we just TALK about alcohol...maybe you'll see what I mean. 😲
It's pretty much daily that I hear someone at work say "I need a drink." I'm guilty of it too. But why? Why are we so quick to want to numb ourselves? Because that's really what we're doing, isn't it? Numbing ourselves to the harshness of our lives? 🤔
It's uncomfortable to think about, but I think it's an important question. And it's something that I'm noodling on while I sip black raspberry Sparkling Ice out of a wine glass on a Saturday night because I really just wanted to sip on a pretty drink.
What are your thoughts on this? I'd love to know 🙂

Splish Splash I was taking a bath on a Saturday night! 🎶🎶
Lavender is one of the most popular and versatile essential oils. It's also one of the oils most widely known for being sold as fake (MUCH more lavender is sold every year than grown ... Hmmmm!). So make sure its 100% pure lavender AND you know your farmer (I only trust Young Living since I've been to their lavender and other farms to see the growing process and distillation myself).
Lavender is known as the Swiss Army Knife of essential oils because it can be used in so many ways. Adding it to some Epsom Salt and putting it in your bath to relax is just one.
Here's a Few More Emotional Uses:
🔆Diffuse it to promote a calm environment
🔆Calm normal stress and nervousness
🔆Promotes restful sleep
🔆Calming for stressful situations
🔆Provides emotional support
🔆Promotes ease of self-expression
🔆May be soothing for a wide range of tough emotional situations:
🔆Try it with ...
➕Neroli and Bergamot for nervousness or agitation
➕Rose for desperation
➕Clary Sage and Cypress for exhaustion
➕Bergamot and Peppermint for impatience
One of my New Years Resolutions was to fall in love with lifting again.
That included focusing less on the scale and more on the bar. I’ve gone through quite a few phases: gaining the freshman 15, obsessively counting calories, gaining weight again, saying “screw it” and binge eating, losing 25 pounds after college, obsessing again, becoming underweight, and the quest for balance. ⚖️ Instagram has been my worst enemy when it comes to deciding on how I should treat my fitness journey. It’s always a choice to click away or unfollow, but when certain aesthetics, body types, workout clothes, etc. have been conditioned to be the norm after years of ~*IG Fitspo*~, it can be tough to differentiate what works for the long term and what’s only curated for the gram. 🤳🏼 There have been moments where I’m either feeling empowered or battling with old patterns of self talk. But I have the gift of recovery on my side - the gift of staying present and with my emotions rather than try to numb them out. I’m not giving up. Neither should you.
Saw a post yesterday seeking advice on how to balance alcohol consumption & exercise. The bottomline read - no advocacy for #sobriety
please. Following the National Margarita Day party that erupted yesterday - it kinda made me wonder how long I’ve been sober. A quick google calculation revealed- I’m on DAY #311
WOOO✨ YA G!RL is creep’n up on a ONE YEAR MILESTONE. Dare I share WHY I took this route?! Sure I’ve had my share of regretted alcohol fueled outbursts. I’ve puked in public & spent a whole lotta my money on top shelf etiquette... I could go on & on but I’ll cut to the point. This is how it went down : Trey Trio played a hometown show last Spring - I ordered my usual, double shot of crown & ginger. It was a typical night out - we laughed & sang & danced the night away. On the ride home I told Anthony- Trey’s lyrics were speaking to my soul. Classic drunk moment right?! HAHA Hear me out - if you listen closely to the poetry of Trey Anastasio - you’ll hear hymnals of planetary consciousness. The next day I woke up with a wicked hangover- you know the one when you call out from underneath your covers - BRING ME WATER! TURN OFF THE SUN!! GO AWAY. I’M NOT GETTING UP TODAY. Aside from the massive migraine & full body ache- what really pissed me off was that - I felt so weak I couldn’t even bring myself to roll out my yoga mat that day. I still remember the conversation - when I told Anthony- I don’t need this lifestyle anymore. I can go out & have a blast - without a drop of booze in my cup. That was when I recognized - alcohol was no longer serving me. In fact I think it’s fair to say - it was an OLD PATTERN that was holding me back. From that day forward- weekends have been very different for me. It is not my intention to push my lifestyle choice on anyone else - YOU DO YOU G!RL BOTTOMS UP! Everyone has their own rhyme & reason for why they choose to do the things they do - I’m just sharing my story of how my devotion to my daily practice has led to my sobriety.
I’m actually on the phone yelling at someone, but at least the view was nice. 😆 #yesmyhairisreal
(thanks for putting up with me all these years)
The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. ✨ treat yourself with compassion and love and you will blossom! 🙏🏻
One day at a time my friends
five months & forever grateful for all of this ⚾️⚾️
