Sometimes something comes up behind you and taps you on the shoulder and you unexpectedly begin down a new path… I want to take a moment to thank EVERYONE who has so supported me in my HEALTH business over the past almost four years! It was an incredible discovery for me that my LOVE of people and knack for HELPING others could propel me in an industry I really never imagined working in. And now I start a NEW chapter… I’ve contacted many of you to let you know about this BIG transition, but I want to make sure all my friends know that I’m setting out on a new charge, a new job, a new opportunity to help people. Surprise! The Universe spoke and I’m listening. THANKS for all the support! Love you, my friends! #newpath #health #wellness #opportunity #listentoyourheart #startagain #somethingnew #careergoals #thanksforeverything #cantwaittobegin #newchapter #allthelove
So you may ask - what happened on the left? Well this was earlier this year. I was crying for a few hours in my hotel room in Mexico. Why? A lot of people ENVY me for all of the traveling I get to do for work. However, 90% of the time there is nothing I want more than to be home. Working on weight loss is EXTREMELY difficult while working 50+ hour work weeks abroad! Almond milk is almost non existent and you play Russian roulette with every meal because you never know which one will give you diarrhea! I was depressed because of my weight gain, inability to take control of my candy addiction, and tired of going in circles with my weight loss journey. I took that picture because I told myself it was a dark day and it WOULD get better.
The right is more recent! I have finally taken control of my candy addiction. I have cleared the negative thoughts out of my head about the weight gain I had! I realized it led me nowhere! I decided to follow inspirational accounts on IG including some amazing therapists. I try to make conscious decisions to ALWAYS put myself first before work or anything else. I am more confident and hopeful with my journey and lifestyle change. I know I will make it regardless of YEARS of setbacks and failed attempts.
However, I am human and I am still working on a few things I am still struggling with portion control. Growing up in the land of buffet meals was hard. I also am hard wired that I should eat everything on my plate - even though that plate may be the size of a serving platter. I am still struggling to control stress while working long hours under pressure. I am trying not to give into bad food choices when things don't go the way they should.
For those of you out there struggling - DON'T GIVE UP! There are some really DARK days on the journey. Please become your OWN BIGGEST CHEERLEADER and put yourself first! It WILL get better ❤️

Morning Run with this girl ✔️
She was less than thrilled to have her pic taken afterwards 😜 — but I’m so proud of her for finishing our run today!
It’s not always easy when you’re in the middle of the struggle— but the struggle is what makes it worth doing!🙌🏻 #thestruggleissoreal #butitsworthit #consistencyiskey
