💔When I can get back into my “skinny” pants, I’ll have made it.
💔I’m going full-speed until my stomach is perfectly flat.
💔I WILL achieve that thigh gap. (🚨 RED ALERT! If you have been swindled by social media into thinking that should be physically achievable for everyone no matter their body type, think again!)
I just let you into my mind all through my 20s.
“HEALTHY” looks DIFFERENT for everyone. I’d been criticizing myself for YEARS, and using THAT as fuel for my workouts. Wellllll…... it was a fast track to destination heartbreak and self-loathing.💔
So I tried something different: Loving myself, and choosing gratitude for what my body can do. It can MOVE, and far too many people are robbed of that ability.
NOW, gratitude and a desire for energy is what fuels my workouts, and these results don’t lie.❤

I wanted to post my Monday Motivation today about simply living in the moment and then found myself spiraling out of control with anxiety and one stupid thing happening after another. I kinda lost my shit and got mad for no reason. But really, only I can be the one to change my thoughts and seek the joy and peace I need in this moment.
Que the Christmas music! Hope you all can take a deep breath and meditate on the joys of this holiday season. I’m thankful for the goodness that surrounds me. Don’t lose yo shit BECAUSE God got you, Boo!! AMEN!🎄🎅❤️ #joyfulliving#christmasmusic#dogsofinstagram#peaceful#mondaymotivation#mondaymood#holidayseason#nomakeup#skincaregal#doggiecuddles
Channeling my kids as I head into the week:
I want to have Corbyn’s tenacity and assertiveness.
I want to have Hudson’s peaceful presence and competitive nature.
I want to have Ashlyn’s confidence and joyful energy.
And I want to laugh as all three of them do!
It’s going to be a good week!

So today was a Monday for the books. I came up the stairs to see our electric fireplace billowing out smoke - it was coming from the extension cord plug 🔌 .
So thankful we found it when we did.
Often I start my day thinking about the call I got from Anthony to tell me he wrecked our car with my older girls inside and had flipped and skidded on the thruway with the car completely upside down.
By the grace of God they didn’t get hurt at all. But To feel for a split second that feeling of it could all be taken away in a second but instead the divine plan was in our favor that day. Any other problem is a pimple on my ass 😘🤣
