This time last year was the first time I touched needle to skin. 1 year in baybee. Super fuckin enthralled to be on this journey & for all that’s to come. I want to take a moment to thank my amazing mentor @emsloman
& the amazing artists at @havefunbeluckytattoo
. Y’all are amazing & I couldn’t ask for a better group of tat slayers to show me the ropes. Also shout out to all of my clients & homies who’ve supported me since day 1. Literally couldn’t ask for more. Love n blessings & bottoms up to years more of this wild ride.

On Fridays, we celebrate weekly wins. What were your wins for the week?!?
Mine, without a doubt, are the ladies that are in their prep week of my first FASTer Way to Fat Loss round! These ladies have faced so many personal and work-related challenges this week. Mercury retrograde is in full effect!
We’ve had a sick parent leading to unplanned travel; delayed flights; a full day’s work lost due a computer glitch (telling you, Mercury retrograde is on 🔥); sick babies; recent move; employees quitting; migraines.... it’s been a week to say the least. But these ladies STILL find the energy and the time to ask questions, watch our live trainings and log their macros. Their energy is contagious and I’m simply honored that they have trusted me in this journey.
Icing on the cake?? I put on some pants today that have been in the back of closet for years. And they fit!!! Even better than they did when I was 6 pounds “skinnier” according to the scale. 🎊 🎈🎉
All of these big wins are the accumulation of small tiny victories that started with me saying “yes” to myself. As my girls get started, I am reminded of where I was when I first started this journey in April.
I didn’t think I could fast for 16 hours. I struggled finding what to eat. I wanted to work out more and rest less. Luckily I had my coach @amandasuebond
coaching me and reminding me to trust the process, to focus on progress, and to exercise some grace. As my group gets going, Amanda and I are excited to celebrate our ladies’ wins. Let’s do this!

Do you have active kids? Living in a city, we often find ourselves indoors (#coldwinter
) and with an kid who loves to move her body and play, the requests for even more playdates and playground time are never-ending. Super Mama and friend @giselelong
has an indoor trapeze in her hallway for years, and I've always wanted one. I don't know what took me so long, I thought I needed a bigger house, a kids playroom... but turns out, all you need is a hallway, city apartment, or suburban home, everyone has a hallway!
5yo makes it into a swing, a gymnastics bar, swings her stuffies on it, goes upside down, spins around, tries new tricks everyday and loves it.
By the sea, that's where we'll be 💫 - @eslee
excuse the blurry pic buuttt tiny victory story: I did the stair stepper for 5 minutes today. That’s literally nothing but I haven’t been able to do it longer than 2 minutes before now. Granted I did have to stop once because I was watching “the office” and my phone fell off the machine 🤦🏼♀️ but I did it! Although it may be a tiny victory it’s still a victory. Slow and steady wins the race. Keep pushing y’all, you can reach your goals no matter how small they may seem 💪🏼✨ #tinyvictories #stairstepper #fitnessgoal #youcandoit #dontstoppushing #cardio
Day 7 of #30daysofremiliajoy
💗✨ Little cutie crushing some goals today 🤗🤗 Remi’s brain injury affects the way her brain communicates with her muscles. Seemingly easy things are actual goals for our girl. We’ve been working daily to encourage Remi to grasp and release toys at will. For many months she’d be able to grab them, but not intentionally release. Today Remi was able to hold 2 toys at the same time and is working SO hard to bring them to her mouth 🙌🏽🙌🏽We celebrate all the wins over here ♥️ so proud of our warrior girl!

Turning Point: Today I will cook an actual meal for the 1st time in over 3 weeks 🙌🏼
Pretty flowers, deep thoughts:
Anyone else struggling with the state of the nation? We are having a beautiful summer, but I’m not sure how to fully enjoy it, let alone share it here, when each day brings a new reason to be outraged. I donate, I make calls, and yet - there are still babies in cages on US soil. The only thing more disheartening than the fact that these human rights violations (and the racism, unpunished sexual assault, disregard for the constitution, ignoring climate change .... the list really goes on and on) are allowed to continue is that apparently there is a large portion of the population that’s just okay with it. WTF? Anyone else struggling? I’d love to know how you cope.
In much better news - my garden is thriving and the baby slept from bedtime to 4am for the first time ever!! #tinyvictories
Something so simple, but so huge for Olivia. She put on this hat and said “ah, ah”. I’m not even sure what she was trying to say but I went along with it. She has an expressive speech delay (doesn’t say more than one word, and rarely multiple syllables) but we’ve been seeing so much progress in these last few weeks. Tiny victories, right? ❤️
Tiny victory story: The night we went out and I wore this outfit I felt so good about myself for the first time in a long time. I didn’t care if I had back fat showing, I didn’t cover up my arms, the back of my shirt was just as see through as the front. But I didn’t care or think twice about it after leaving the house. ~
Lately I feel like I should’ve lost more weight by now or made more progress but then I looked back on my documented weight from January 3, 2019 and what my current weight is and y’all I’ve lost 23.8 pounds this year!!
Some days I notice I’ve made this much progress and other days I feel like I’ve had absolutely zero progress but that’s the roller coaster of a lifestyle change. I’m nowhere near where I want to be but I’m so glad I’ve come this far! Keep pushing y’all 💪🏼✨ #noteasybutworthit #nobodyshaming #positivethinking #icanandiwill #tinyvictories
