 She is Fiercely Independent 

I have experienced independence in its' weakest form.

From Last Place, to a Place of Empowerment

Uncategorized Mar 21, 2018

// The Moment I Knew Something Had to Change... //

This is long, but worth the read

I legit didn't know if I would make it to the finish line without passing out, but there wasn't a clear way to turn back; I had to keep moving.

nourished Feb 04, 2018

This went out to my inner circle people today, but wanted to share here, too!

Rants from me  ;)

And... that just because it works for you, doesn't mean that it will work for everyone  :)  <3

Allow me to feel like a fraud for a moment...

I'm the self-love, don't define your worth by the number on the scale or the size of your lululemon shorts, but I lost perspective this past summer.

There's this sliding scale (no pun intended). On one hand, I absolutely believe that you can achieve the body you desire. On the other hand, it shouldn't cost you your sanity.

And our frame of...

Don't Allow the Scale to Dictate Your Happiness

:: We Were Not Born to Step on the Scale Daily ::

I've seen so many posts lately about to step on the scale or not to step on the scale, or what alternatives there are to measure progress, etc.

There's nothing WRONG with stepping on the scale. It's a measurement, a number, a point of reference. The scale has been both the motivator and the devil in my life.

If you are able to look at it...
