“You need to be healthy. You don’t need to be thin. . You don’t need to be a certain size or shape or look good in a bikini. 👙 You need to be able to run without feeling like you’re going to puke. 🤮 You need to be able to walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded. You need to drink half your body weight in ounces of water every single day. 💦 You need to stretch and get good sleep and stop medicating every ache and pain. You need to stop filling your body with garbage like Diet Coke and fast food and lattes that are a million and a half calories. 🍟🥤🍕You need to take in fuel for your body that hasn’t been processed and fuel for your mind that is positive and encouraging. 🌱 You need to get up off the sofa or out of the bed and move around. 🤸🏼‍♀️Get out of the fog that you have been living in and see your life for what it is. . Does your Creator love you as you are? Yes! ✨ But he gave you a body with all of its strength, and even its weaknesses, as a gift. 🎁 It is an offense to your soul to continue to treat yourself so badly.” - Rachel Hollis Girl, Wash Your Face . . . #fulloffaith #courageousleader #liveauthentic #meetthemoment #familyoffive #realmomtogs #girlwashyourface #rachelhollis #wahmlife #liveauthentically #becourageous #calimom #healthymamas #livinmybestlife #august2018 #unapologeticallyme #wellnessblogger #realmomsofinstagram #takecareofyourself #lovethejourney #intentionalwomen

Good Morning ❤
Rose gold oxfords. I feel like I don't wear them enough. On the upside, I received several compliments today. My shoes tend to be a hit at work. #oxfordshoes #somethingsabouther #sexyandcomfortable #shoesaddict
A small mind said I was not myself as I have so many doctored images 🤔🤭 Here I have 1. Green contacts 2. Spray tan 3. Make-up 4. Fiery hair 5. Lighting 6. Lashes. This is a photo..still image.

Go HARDER. Don't give up! They ain't gone give yo ass shit.
For those who know me personally, know that I am a reasonably private person..so something as simple as sharing this book is something that I'd NEVER do. Well..times have changed, and I with the times. We all have a story whether we choose to disclose them or leave them closed. Although it's not up for debate as to why I am reading this book nor does it really matter... but I simply wanted to share and pass along an inspirational woman by the name of @jackiehillperry with an inspirational story. The greatest act of courage is to be and own all that you are; unmasked and without apology or excuse..and courageous I will always be! But anyway...I got my copy! #UnapologeticallyMe #PerfectlyImperfect #SoulLiving #DroppingJewels #ReadingIsKnowledge #KnowledgeIsPower #BetterGetYourCopy #SharingIsCaring
Did you catch this fire episode of @brianabowley podcast ‘The Live Free Experience’?! If not be sure to head over to her page (give her a follow if you aren’t already & if you aren’t WUTTTT 😱😱) and give it a listen - We talked competition prep, protection vs attention, deep connection, breast implants & doing things our way 🔥🤟🏼 - Oh and everything in between of course as is the way when this epic human & I chat. Seriously love creating anything with this gal ✨
The realest lesson i ever learned was ACCOUNTABILITY.. no matter the consequences may have been or the rewards i stand by the decisions i make #unapologeticallyme #elevatedliving #change
Finally!!! I’ve never felt more free...I’m the REAL ME!! #unapologeticallyme #Godsown #prodigalrestored #🌻💎👑
All is right in the world! Sadly it’s been about two and a half weeks since I was able to get a legitimate workout in. Tonight was rough, especially knowing how poorly I’ve eaten the last three/four weeks. - To be where I want to get to I cannot have lapses like I did. I am responsible for my reaction to my situation. What’s happening around me should not derail me. Establishing new routines will take time but I have to be adamant about it! - Thankful for one of my best friends @bodybymurph for putting my programs together! Dudes the real deal! “Not doing what you said you would is disrespectful to those who believe in you” Won’t let you down man! - - - - - #mythankful365 #godalwaysfirst #workout #backatit #pickstuffup #putitdown #repeat #watchme #fuelforlife #mustlift #bettereveryday #goodbetterbest #biggerpicture #longtermgoals #staythecourse #focusforward #unapologeticallyme
Post workout reflection. Today I did not want to workout. Cardio days are not my favorite so it made it much harder. But I made it through, had to push pause several times and finished 7 mins after the crew. But that is still 5 mins faster than round 1. I call that a win! **Progress Not Perfection
BIG OL' FACTS!!! and I'm stubborn..... but oh well! 🤷‍♀️ #sorrynotsorry #unapologeticallyme #takeitorleaveit
I’m going on Day 6 of acute physical anxiety symptoms. — Tingling hands and feet, stomachache, hard time concentrating, vague worry feeling without any definitive source. — But who gave their girls a bath tonight, cooked them and myself dinner and finished setting up my classroom on time for school tomorrow...? This human right here! — I share this to say, like my bestie @trueblueeyes92 reminded me “I am more than my emotions” I don’t have to let my anxiety rule me. I am learning to work THROUGH the anxiety rather than shutting down and avoiding it. — Let’s hope it’s just new school year nerves, but I’m over it 😂 — Taking some seriously self care time tonight. Going to put good shit out there into the universe. — Be honest... how are y’all doing these last few days? You ok? — ▪️▪️▪️ #thestruggleisreal #roadtorecovery #presentoverperfect #progressnotperfection #anxietysucks #unapologeticallyme #inkedup #blackgirlmagic
Why are my hands so creepy? Idk ask my mom. Borrowed my sisters room for this picture and book and shirt. But the neck and hands definitely belong to me. I’m only reading this book for two reasons. I like the author and I’m drawn to shiny things ;) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #currentlyreading #ernestcline #armada #book #read #bookstagram #instabook #homedecor #unapologeticallyme #bookphotography
Apparently smiling with my eyes closed is my new favorite thing... 🙈👀 Assuming this pic was taken when I had just woken up... but I’m comin’ at ya with a check-in post... ☕️🌲 Personally, I’m constantly fighting that never-ending battle between loving & hating myself (Which is PERFECTLY okay & needs to be normalized because you cannot walk around loving yourself 24/7... you WILL have bad days. It’s inevitable.) ...but something my dad said a few weeks ago took me aback. I was having an ‘emotional moment’, and he said “You. You need to stop with this whole ‘I’m ugly’ thing–“ to which I defensively responded “Most of the time I’m joking...", so he said “I don’t care! Just cut it out. You and your sister are not ugly. You guys need to stop saying that...”🐻♥️ I hadn’t realized how noticeable self-deprecation was to those around me... even if it was ‘just a joke’. I feel like with social media especially, it’s so easy for us to talk down upon ourselves— almost TOO easy, really... So I encourage everyone & anyone to try their best NOT to say anything negative about themselves... and speak positivity into existence. In the meantime, to myself, I am sorry once again. I’m sorry for not appreciating your hard work, sudden changes, and overall dedication to bettering yourself. You deserve happiness. 💫🌻

Thing I currently love about this homeschooling thing? . Flexibility! . Having vehicle problems today wasn't really in our curriculum plans and threw our schedules off... . So instead of missing Day 2? We just did it after dinner rather than in the afternoon... . Doesn't matter when it's done, as long as it is, right?! 👊 . #daytwo #flexibility #homeschooling
It has been beautiful in Michigan recently. Right now I am enjoying a fire with my husband and in-laws, and it is so refreshing. Harry Potter is also super refreshing! I love revisiting the series I grew up. #ofthebookaug18 weird characters. Luna Lovegood is one of the best “weird” characters in literature. She is smart, brave, and unapologetically her. I love the way she doesn’t doubt herself and would be totally interested in some Luna Lovegood side stories. In a way she is similar to Newt in Fantastic Beasts, but I think Luna is even less concerned with the opinions of others (then she marries Newt’s grandson!). I think Luna is technically the character I am most like based on the Meyers Briggs Personality type, but I need to channel more of the not thinking about others opinions and expectations and just do me. Who’s your favorite “unapologetically me” character? Happy Reading! . . . . #openbook #booksandtea #harrypotter #lunalovegood #orderofthephoenix #unapologeticallyme #meyersbriggs #hplove #dumbledoresarmy
Metamorphosis has always been the greatest symbol of change and transformations for women. Imagine that you could be a caterpillar one moment (all the hurt, pain, stress, and negative shit we tell ourselves) and a butterfly the next (the woman that we said we could never be or do the things we never thought we could do but we are all that and more) ❣️ • • Stop doubting yourself just because you are not who or where you think you should be... your time is coming don’t give up
Pen to paper. Ink to image. Practice your patience. Define your boundaries. You’re an artwork that should be captured for years to come. You stand out and I bet you didn’t even know it. 💕🦋.

There have been democrats and republicans who have gotten along before. It’s not unheard of to be of 2 different political parties and be friends. But it’s not immature to terminate said friendship because of that. Sometimes this gets deeper than politics, it goes to morals. For the president to do horrible characteristic things like this isn’t about his political views, it’s about his morality. And if you feel the same as him, I’m sorry but, GOODBYE. ~A . . . . . . . #feminist #equality #lgbt #lgbtq #transgender #love #blacklivesmatter #peace #intersectionality #womenempowerment #womensrights #equal #movement #intersectionalfeminism #intersectional #loveislove #empower #resist #change #victim #victims #victimblaming #justice #pride #neveragain #feminism #unapologeticallyme #unapologeticallyblack #lovemyself #women
All I can say is holy 💪🏼💪🏼. Holy legs!!!! It was a pleasure to work out alongside @jaynachurchelli for the 4th time this week!!!! That’s the one thing I noticed other than the obvious bicep pop (a million curls will do that to a girl), was holy fucking legs!!!! . Was my day perfect? Far from it. I wasn’t in the best headspace all day. I let myself get hangry which resulted in frozen 🍕 for dinner. It was Giuseppe thin crust Parisian though which is one of the more healthy options (and tastes delicious if I must say so myself). But it’s still pizza. And it’s still not entirely on plan. We slammed our workout then shared some of the ristorante chocolate pizza. With raspberries so it’s healthy, right?!? . Far from perfect. But I made it. And made progress over yesterday.
Gentlemen do you agree? Do men enjoy #erotica ? #lustthebook #outnow #shoplust

Never be sorry for who you are. Your personality should never be shrouded in what society expects of you. Be shamelessly, unapologetically you. You will find the world rallies behind those who carve roads of their own. . . Ne soyez jamais désolé pour qui vous êtes. Votre personnalité ne devrait jamais être enveloppée de ce que la société attend de vous. Soyez sans vergogne vous même.. Vous trouverez que les gens s’alignent derrière ceux qui gravent leurs propres routes. . . 📷: @kelvsc 🌾 . .

The truth is that I’ll always be regular degular I decided to never let go of my Brooklyn accent, get excited over coupons, wash my face with black soap, tone with witch hazel and moisturize with cocoa butter... I still wash my hair in the sink and occasionally grease my scalp.... I soak my feet in epsom salt and coat with Vaseline and thick socks...This is my black girl magic.. I drink hot tea in the middle of the night that I make in a kettle.... This is me aging and being happy about it..... Day 4 of my trip around the sun #unapologeticallyme
Transformation Tuesday I found this old picture on the first day of school on my last year of teaching just over 5 years ago. When I began teaching 12 years earlier, I felt like it was the only thing I would ever want to do... I LOVED my students, I LOVED being in middle school, I LOVED my peers, and I LOVED the learning process... But then I decided I could have a greater impact through leadership. I became the Union President and got caught up in the love of advocating for my peers and the needs of our students. I then became a Union Staff person and thought I would do that forever! The pay was promising and I LOVED my work. But sad things happened there and I lost way too much valuable time with my family. I began to dream new dreams. I began getting healthy and taking care of myself. I found a community of other people who wanted to do the same. We began to dream bigger dreams together. And I knew I could have a better life. So when I learned that the union I was working for decided to suddenly lay off the entire staff, I was so ready to walk away and begin to build my own dreams. I find it really wonderful that I am now able to work on my own terms, teach others to live well and believe in themselves, advocate for a better life, help them learn and believe in themselves, and help them prepare for a better future! So if you want to dream bigger dreams and live a healthier life, we should definitely talk! Send me a message or drop me a comment below.👇👇👇

I miss the ocean, & I know it’s weird to say. I grew up then moved to LA & it’s only 30 minutes, 405 to PCH, but half an hour feels forever in the f**king day. @bear V important, @a_buksar took this photo.
