Eating well is a form of self-respect. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you really say you respect yourself if your shovelling into your body all that junk food daily? All that deep fried god knows what? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trust me, I know that all the food that’s unhealthy is SOOO delicious; but think about what it’s doing to your insides. Do you really feel that good after eating all that junk? I never did. I always felt bloated and sluggish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now don’t get me wrong, there’s some days I still want that delicious junk over the healthier option, but I definitely choose the healthier option these days more then the junk. I’ve learnt to respect myself and my body more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What about you? Are you 100% healthy?!?! Or do you cave from time to time?! 👇👇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and unmotivated to try changing your lifestyle. It seems so complicated and to think that it will take weeks and MONTHS to actually achieve those "body goals" - whatever they may be - it’s easy to procrastinate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eh. I have a trip coming up - better wait till after that. Ope here come the holidays - better just wait till the new year.
I’m here to challenge you to STOP procrastinating a positive change in life! If you are looking to make a change - something that’s SIMPLE and wholesome - just go for it. Why not? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Time is going to go by and you can either be working toward your goals or NOT. 🤷🏻♀️ One thing I know for sure - every day you have to be INTENTIONAL about exercise. Always have a game plan. Eat all the foods you love - just eat CLEAN versions and keep your portions balanced.
Healthy traditions are being formed for my family and I love that.
Why put it off? Why put off taking care of the person who is in charge of your life, your kids, your family? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can’t expect to be your best if you aren’t first taking care of YOU. Then as YOU are making these positive changes and living a healthy lifestyle, you are setting the standard for those close to you.
So why wait??? Who’s ready? 👋👋👋
Our new patented 10X Pure Gold 1000 delivers 6 milligrams of absorbable CDBA. That’s 21 times more that any other full spectrum CBD on the market!
CBDA is a potent anti-inflammatory, working by selectively inhibiting an enzyme in our bodies called COX-2. This enzyme is triggered when you experience injury or infection, and it produces compounds called prostaglandins.
Prostaglandins promote inflammation, and although this is a natural response, it can be the source of significant pain and at times, cell destruction. CBDA reduces the production of prostaglandin by blocking the COX-2 enzyme. Less prostaglandin equals less inflammation and pain.
Scientists have long sought compounds that block COX-2 without blocking COX-1 — and CBDA does just that. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) work by blocking both COX enzymes — this is why they can cause side effects of bleeding, gut irritation, and ulcers.
One particular NSAID, called celecoxib, is also a selective COX-2 inhibitor but has a long list of possible side effects including headaches, abdominal pain, indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, dizziness, insomnia, and more.
There are no reports of these side effects with CBDA use. Research also shows that CBDA is sporostatic (stops mold spores from reproducing) and antibacterial.
Dr. Raphael Mechoulam has described the plant cannabinoids as a “neglected pharmacological treasure trove.” We desperately need more research on these compounds, and with the promising results seen so far, CBDA should be at the top of the research list.
Many common illnesses, including diabetes, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and others, are thought to be a result of chronic inflammation.

Happy Sunday Everyone 🌞
I'm only down 300gm this week but I'm ok with that, I was sick at the beginning of the week with food poisoning and hadn't been moving much or meeting my step goal. Yesterday I got my 10,000 steps in and my husband and I are going on a small hike today.
I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and bring on next week ✌
🔶WARNING LONG POST🔶
This is for everyone!
Before we start anything I have a question for you. “What does Exercise mean to you?” When I say the word exercise a lot of people cringe. Ultimately a lot of people describe exercise as a chore🧹 Instead of thinking it as a gift!
But when people think or describe exercise they think they need to be in the gym for 60+ minutes running and dripping in sweat for it to count!💦 The recommended minutes of moderate aerobic physical activity is 150 minutes!
Physical activity can range from walking, running, cleaning your house, pulling weeds in your garden, swimming, chasing your children, playing basketball, volleyball, wrestling, baseball, even walking at work!
So if you break it down that is roughly 22 minutes 7 days a week or 30 minutes 5 days of week of activity!
When you’re walking the dog or cleaning the house! Time yourself and see how many minutes of activity you get!
Also I want to recommend a really great Health and Wellness podcast! It’s called Optimal Health that I found on Spotify!
If anyone has any question on health and wellness please don’t be afraid to reach out to me!☺️
hi babies I am officially back from my trip and ready to WORK🍽 I’ve been slowly making tweaks and changes to my diet and cardio to find out what works best for maintaining and now that I’ve taken the time to get to know my body, I’m coming full force. let me help you do the same !! dm me for information.
TnT Fitness Trainer is officially released on the app store!
Check it out on Google Play & Apple Store!
This is a huge milestone for me. Thank you to all my friends and family for their support and for those testers who sent me feedback. I'm going to continue upgrading the app based on your comments!
Pay attention to these four things and you will lose weight.
1. Diet - I know this. You know this. You can’t outwork a bad diet. Pay attention to the calories in and calories out. Eat a well balanced diet that is low in refined sugar and saturated fat. Include 25-30g of fiber daily. FAT IS GOOD. CARBS ARE GOOD. In fact they are essential. Just pay attention to the amounts you are eating! A good meal tracker will help.
2. Exercise - Resistance training is king. Though it may not happen as fast, it will last longer. This speeds up your metabolism. Building lean muscle burns more fat. Period. Don’t worry ladies, this doesn’t mean you’ll get “bulky.”
3. Sleep - we could probably all use more of it. 7-8 hours is good for most people. This allows your body to restore itself and gives you increased energy. A good nights sleep has been shown to increase fat loss while a lack of sleep contributes to fat gain.
4. Activities that aren’t “planned exercise” - like taking a stroll, parking further from the door, or stepping away from your desk every now and again. Any way to burn extra calories!
Do these and watch your results happen!

If you have any questions or concern pls ask, and pls be sure that you are medically safe and clear to be performing these workouts.

Everything i ate today. Dinner is @aladdinseatery I loveeee Aladdin’s and it’s really not that bad! I usually get the Fatayer Plate it’s a salad with pita wrapped spinach and feta cheese 🙌🏻 it’s amazing. I got hummus on the side since I had no snacks today too. 😋 **i usually dip my salad into the dressing so you eat less! It’s balsamic and I got a side of Tahini yogurt** #healthandfitness#healthyeating#healthyfood#food#healthjourney
When I first heard about mindfulness I was at yoga and I was like ya ya lets keep going I want to get my sweat on.⠀
I then learned more and more about mindfulness and kept hearing more and more about it. I learned how mindfulness can help decrease stress and how it can help to ground us so we can become more present and not so caught up in our own "heads". Mindfulness practices have been shown to help decrease stress or our perception of stress and we all know how that can impact our health. Stress is a major contributor to some of the major illnesses we hear about on a daily basis. ⠀
I became curious and had a conversation with one of my dearest friends @createthelove years ago and he suggested I look up #jonkabatzinn and his "Introduction to Mindfulness" on @YouTube. I then realized how important this really is to our health and wellbeing and I became even more curious.⠀
In my life, I have found that when I become curious about something there is usually a good reason. Life continued to give me signs and I kept following. Including mindfulness practices such as meditation into my life has really helped me with my health and continues to help ground me and become more present in my day to day activities.⠀
I have so much to learn about this topic but I thought this quote was cute and I wanted to share how meditation has helped me in my health journey. So maybe it could help someone else who is curious. ⠀
There are some great apps for guided meditation. The ones I use are: @calm or @insighttimer. If you have any other suggestions I would love to hear about them in the comments below. ⠀

What an unbelievable trip we had!!!!! These woman! This team! Our tribe!
Literally.. no words.
Being apart of such a motivating , Inspiring team is something I never thought I needed in my life ... but I was so wrong.
We push eachother. We support eachother. We cheer eachother on. We are there for eachother every single day and it’s a pretty amazing feeling knowing you have so many other like minded people in your corner , all working towards our own personal goals!
This trip was such an amazing experience! I worked out with my all time favorite super trainer, worked out on the streets of Indy with 20,000 other coaches , learned about new programs and products being released, got early access to new products, learned some valuable information from some of the top leaders in training workshops, and even had the pleasure to see Rachel Hollis!!! I had my handsome hubby and our sweet boy with us and my heart could not be more full.
Huge thanks to my hubby for being full time mommy and daddy on this trip so I could take away as much as possible!
Learning and growing every single day has not only helped me become a better person , mama and wife , it has helped my family in so many ways!
Everyone should experience this! You may not even know that you need this in your life right now , but I assure you everyone does.
If you are ready to say yes to yourself , drop your favorite emoji below and let’s chat! I want all of you to be there with me next year in New Orleans!!!!! 🎉

i just want to guys to know don’t go to the gym if your feeling like it’s a chore, give yourself a break and relax ! buttt if you do want to move your body, go for a walk, swim or even stretch 🤸🏼♂️
that means 17 weeks until i get to meet my little guy! gosh i CANNOT WAIT! 😭💛
