For the first time in months, I decided to go out for a run tonight. It's been far too long and it was far too hard but I did it and my throbbing knees will have their payback in the morning, but still, I did it. #badmoodbegone #backtobasics #startingoveragain #gomego
What does emotional freedom look like to you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your day starts immediately off on the wrong foot - you miss your alarm & overslept, get in the shower & there's no hot water, AND ... then in a hurry you forgot your lunch.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just when you think you’re going to catch a break & grab a taxi in 2.5 seconds, someone forces themselves in front of you and you’re left waiting on the street.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can this day get any worse, you think as you’re almost in tears…. #overit
>>> But what if it went like this instead.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You wake up, notice the sunrise and the birds chirping outside of your window, realize you overslept & are going to be late for work.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"I needed the extra sleep anyway" and head for the shower, You turn on the water, it's cold. You opt for a no-fuss hairstyle and save some time on your morning routine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You go to the door, see a taxi pulling up in 2.5 seconds. Someone runs in front of you and grabs it - you wish them well, feeling thankful you're not in THAT much of a hurry - and catch the next cab.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Too good to be true?? It's not..⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That's emotional freedom at its finest - the ability to free yourself from worry, anger, fear, and frustration… and it’s something you can learn. It’s not that positive thinking will solve all of your problems magically, just like that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Emotional freedom isn’t so much about positive thinking, but more about controlling your emotions instead of letting them control you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you imagine a life in which you don’t feel owned by your emotions on a daily basis? How powerful would that be?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is just one of the concepts you’ll learn in the EMPOWERED LIVING PROGRAM ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Join me in a powerful 8-week group coaching program that will help you identify things that aren’t serving you and rewrite your story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ll create a blueprint for how you want to feel and how you want to feel and how you want to live – realizing that you really do have control over it all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So Tuesday night I did what I thought would be so hard to do, something I've been putting off for over 2 years. But I did it and it actually turned out to be quite fun. I now feel like I have closure on what happened and that I'm finally able to move on to the next chapter of my life. I've wrote a full blog post on this and the link's in my bio
Everybody deserves a day...
Is today yours to conquer without fear?
Type 💪 in the comments if YES!!
I am covering for the amazing Naomi tonight at 6 pm’s Strength N Powher class. We are concentrating on inner strength. Form. Focus. There’s still time to take that first step. Show up 5:45 and i will get you registered. First class on us. #bringit #startingover #startingoveragain #fitnessgirl #fitness
When you send your little a care package home and she geeks out over it!
I will call this surprise a success!
Waiting for a day where I get to just chillax and not go a million miles an hour all day!
Until then I look for to my 30 minute breaks from reality 😍
Ironically my second BERLIN-MARATHON was my best preparation since I officially started running and to be trained. In terms of training, I can’t say a word although the highest temperatures I faced over 5 months of preparation. Three weeks before the race, I lost it all to my mind. Just my mind. I decided to travel anyways, at the starting line, not being able to physically run 1km I decided to confront my mind and promised: if I defeat you, leave me alone, I won’t complaint about any, any of the minutes we fought, me, my body and you, mind. And I won. This capture speaks for itself. I see no reasons to speak about my personal life, justify my choices, cover failures, pretend nothing goes wrong with me, but neither think is a public matter. This race was not about the time as 2015 was, but was about me. And I am grateful for the chance to start all over again. Thanks to all those who respect these choices and don’t get much worried about numbers, performance, but YES what as a HUMAN this race did for me.

We never really know who and where we would have been if we made one different decision.
Day 9: Hanging out at a smoothie place to collect your thoughts when you don’t have a place to call home yet. #startingoveragain
Relaxing into the flow of life is one of the most difficult things to do, yet it is also one of the most powerful states one can achieve. 🌌
The paradox of setting our intentions, and then releasing them–of getting out of our own way, in order to allow good to come to us, might seem totally illogical–and, well, it is! 🌌Magic, the law of attraction, mystical alignment, whatever you want to call it, occurs in the gap between thoughts. It does not occur within the grey matter of our brains.
Whether we are hoping for a change in career, relationship or mood, we must do our part on the intention side, but then we need to release them. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t take steps towards bringing our intentions closer. However, when we surrender into the flow of life, it’s amazing where, when, and how magical opportunities seem to just pop up in some of the least likely places. 🗝The key is to be relaxed and aware enough to actually notice them!
Do you release the intentions you set? Have you encountered any magical moments recently? ⚡🌌⚡
Thank you @garyvee
for the phenominal virtual mentoring & wisdom you share. When I saw this shirt months ago I scraped & borrowed the $7-$8 s&h to get this shirt. Some may be thinking "Really? You had to scrape & borrow SEVEN DOLLARS??" YEP, I did.
I lost EVERYTHING but a few boxes of clothes/personal items 2 yrs ago when my health started to deteriorate. It's been an extremely painful & difficult 2 yrs battling & waiting for surgery. FINALLY it happened 2 weeks ago & am on the road to healing.
I wore this #HUSTLE
shirt damn near every day and to sleep (lotsa hand washing...lol) as part of My personal MENTAL PREPARATION & DETERMINATION TO NEVER AGAIN BE BROKE, LIVING JUST TO SURVIVE & BE 100% DEPENDENT UPON SOMEONE ELSE. NEVER AGAIN WILL I NOT HAVE 'MORE THAN ENOUGH'. This makes the 3rd time I've had to start over but Never to this extent after losing everything + my income. Every time I had to force myself to walk a mile 1 way to Walmart w/my granddaughter, in pain, struggling against nausea w bags, a backpack & small luggage cart to haul it all back home, EVERY SINGLE TIME I was chanting to myself, "NEVER AGAIN WILL I BE BROKE. NEVER AGAIN WILL I NOT HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH! TO TAKE CARE OF ALL MY NEEDS & WANTS. NEVER AGAIN WILL I NOT BE ABLE TO HELP MY KIDS WHEN IN NEED OR MY LOVED ONES. NEVER. AGAIN." I remember walking back one day, it started raining while we were inside. I had grabbed More than I really had room for &had a hard time hauling it back as the luggage cart kept tipping over w/bags falling out & granddaughter SO TIRED she had fallen asleep while shopping. A grumpy toddler with everything else, I sat down on a rock & cried! From pain & frustration. I cried out loud "WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME?!?! I'M ALWAYS DOING FOR OTHERS, ALWAYS HELPING. I'M A GOOD MOTHER. TEACHER. A GOOD PERSON!! I DON'T UNDERSTAND.?!?!" This shirt has been part of my mental, emotional & spiritual preparation for when I'm healed. I've always been a Hustler, always Grinding but still broke more than not. NO MORE!! #neveragain #garyvee #hustle #grind #neverquit #refocused #determined #change #startingoveragain #faith #startingoveragain #itsnottoolate
So much negativity goes through my mind when I see how much I struggle, when I feel the pain and aches that runs through my body every single day, when I see how much my body changed after pregnancy, when I see that I have to start all over again.
I spend so much time picking myself apart and criticizing my body, and it’s exhausting but I’m making small changes and taking baby steps and I’m here getting sh&t done and pushing all of my excuses aside and trust me I have some legit ones but I won’t allowed myself to continue that path
I have a long way to go but I know that I am capable of doing amazing things. I need to be gentle, kind, and most importantly I need to love and respect myself. My body has gone through a lot in the last 18 months, physically and mentally, postpartum anxiety and sleep deprivation plus working full time, dealing with a teenager and a baby whose constantly going through changes, it’s not easy, but it can be manage, it’s all in making a plan and staying focus
Here I am, kicking ass and making changes, inside and out, now I need to practice more #SelfLove

Were you raised like me to believe you can't have it all?
That you can't have the time and money? at once?
Back then there weren't opportunities like today.
But it is possible and we've seen it first hand.
See it for yourself. Click the link in bio 🙂👍
Sorry, but I’m getting a little personal here. Last week we evacuated from our new home of Wilmington to Boone, NC. Then last night, we got word that we should leave the Boone area because of possible flash floods, mudslides and road closures. So, we decided to head down to Asheville until it’s safe enough for us to rerun. This has been a long road for my family and I. This past Memorial Day we lost our home to a flood. And now this...and to be honest, I’m not too sure as to how long I can stay in Wilmington. My core has been shaken and seeing my kids feel displaced, is seriously breaking my heart. Yes, there are moments of laughter and smiles, but there are so many more tears. It’s hard to talk to others about it because they only see the happy pictures. At times, it’s hard to find joy, I am stressed the eff out. My brain keeps telling me that all will be okay. But I know that I need to work and I worry that I won’t be able to in the months to come. It’s so scary and stressful. Sorry for this long and personal message, but I’ve never felt so lost. Part of me doesn’t want to leave Asheville and just start over again here.

This memory popped up on my feed in Facebook. 3 years ago today I hit the 100 lb loss mark... ecstatic I was to say the least but here I sit 3 years later having gained 43 of that back. I decided I could feel sorry for myself and eat my sorrows because let’s face it that’s how I got back here. I’m a heavy emotional eater. So instead I decided to pick myself up and be selfish and dedicate the next 15 weeks of my life to me. Getting back to who I know I am and can be. Yes weight doesn’t define you but for me to be confident again and not let people walk all over me I know I need to get back on track. So that’s what I am going to do. #weightlossjourney #startingoveragain #goals #weightlossmotivation #weightlossgoals
Hey there everyone! These past few weeks have been rough and I’ve been not only absent on here but on my #ketojourney
as well. I just started back at school for the fall semester and started a new internship as well. Learning to juggle classes, internship, work, and my personal life has been difficult. I’ve been tired and stressed so I have fallen back into old habits that include #stresseating
. I’ve been too ashamed to look at the scale and on here to not only have no progress but failure. I am trying to forgive myself and love myself for failing the past few weeks, but as you all know it’s easier said than done. I found this list of #selfcare
prompts for #30days
. I am going to strive to do one of these every day for the next 30 days to see if I can start to heal myself from the inside out. I’m also restarting my keto diet. Again, I thank everyone for all the love and messages they have sent to me! Your encouragement has meant so much. #keto #ketodiet #ketotransformation #startingoveragain #selfcare #challenge #selflove #eatingdisorderrecovery
