If it doesn't open after initial tap then open it in your browser. Creating the life you love may be more attainable than you think. 😉
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a lot of time on week nights to whip up a fancy meal. But I also don’t want to eat chicken, brown rice and broccoli five nights a week. Am I right?!?! 🤦🏻♀️
I’m always on the lookout 👀 for new ideas that are quick to make, but also taste great! This shrimp coconut curry has become one of my favs....it’s super delicious, super quick and super easy!! Who wouldn’t love that? 👍🏻

Everyone talks about how you should enjoy motherhood, but very few like to talk about the struggle.
I was a brand new mama with a little preemie. Born 4 pounds and 15 ounces. Nyla was a freaking DOLL baby. Her jaundice kept us in the hospital a week after she was born and then we were set free.
AC was working three hours away from home. Never did I imagine my then fiancé being away from me and our newborn daughter. I mean...Nyla was still getting HEEL sticks every few days to check her bilirubin levels.
One week Nyla and I traveled down to stay at AC's temporary apartment. I tried to love it. I really did.
There was no reception except for on the porch. My family was now hours away from me. Since Nyla was only a couple weeks old AND a preemie, we didn't go out into civilization.
The depression was unreal. I was trying to be a new strong mama and a supportive fiancé. I suffered from extreme dysfunction with my SI joint during pregnancy..so there came a point where I could barely WALK. I cried in pain and painted her room months before her arrival. That paint had my HEART in it.
The nursery we created for her wasn't in in use.
Instead, we brought all of her essentials and her pack and play. This apartment was TINY and nothing like our beautiful home. One day I just stared balling crying and said, "I WANT TO GO HOME". Some days I felt like I was suffocating.
I lasted a week and went back home. Shoutout to my amazing mama for coming to stay with me throughout the week. AC would come home on the weekends and leave again on Sunday.
That was freaking HARD to do. Soon after AC was no longer working that job. Bittersweet, but I was SO happy. 😂
I'm tearing up as I write this. It's hard for me to share, but I KNOW for a fact I have women with depression and anxiety following our beautiful journey. I wanted to share this and remind you that you've survived 100% of your worst days. We made it and so can you.💕

These pics are 4 months apart, in the pink sneakers I'm 150lbs and wore a size 8...in the in the blue (currently) I weigh 164lbs and still wear a size 8...so what's with the increased number on the scale? MUSCLE baby! My body fat went up by 2 % but I'm not about starve myself or dehydrate myself and sit in the sauna for 2 hours to cut weight and fat. I'm literally the happiest I've EVER BEEN RIGHT NOW! ❤️ I check myself out in the mirror and give myself the Joey "how you doin 😏" at least 3x a day. I'm starting this year off with so much LOVE and Happiness and plan on keeping it all year long 🤘🏾. The transformation I'm highlighting today is just in Self thought, I love myself more now than I ever have before 🤗. #Selflove #selfconfidence #bodyconfidence #curvygirl #thickfit #strongwoman #chooselove #chooseyou #bemoreyou #bemorehuman #loveyourself #confidentwomen #smilemore #livewild
Don't let these containers fool you - they may look small, but they are mighty! I'm always pleasantly surprised how much food ends up on the plate after portioning everything out! I'm left feeling full and satisfied 😄
This might be my dinner for the entire week, but it makes it super easy to meal prep! And I looove leftovers 😍
⭐️💕"I love, respect, choose, feel, me" YEP THAT'S RIGHT. @selflovesupply
sent me this tee and it's just so accurate. It's also a very weird feeling to be able to genuinely say that I believe this about myself. That I truly choose ME as I am without wanting to change what's already perfect.
I get asked all the time "How did you learn love yourself?". That's a very complex question, but learning to ACCEPT myself was the first step. Learning to be able to sit in discomfort and think, "Wow I really don't like how my body looks or feels right now but there's nothing I can do to change it in this moment so I am going to accept that this is how I am".
The more I adapted to this way of thinking, the more true it rang for me. And the more I was able to get to a place of neutrality with my body and eventually myself.
This way of thinking was and still is very helpful in battling episodes of body dysmorphia. Knowing that what I'm seeing is not what others are seeing and holding on to that fact helps me remember that in reality my body is fine. That I look just fine. That I am more than fine, I am beautiful.
Everytime I try to write about "how to love yourself" I get stuck because there's no user manual, there are no written directions or guidelines on how to do it. It's different for everyone.
Just remember that neutrality is a pretty guaranteed step in between self hate and self love. And it doesn't matter how long it takes you to get there, it just matters that you're trying.
Maybe that helped a bit 💕
The typical #transformationtuesday
doesn’t really fit my journey anymore. I measure my progress by how I feel in my body and how strong I am mentally.
My ‘transformation’ this week is how I have changed mentally towards fitness and how that has made me feel in my body.
In 2015 on the left, I was in a very different mindset. I was preparing for a competition and I measured how ‘fit’ I was by how much time I spent in the gym and how much I weighed on the scale. Physically, I may have looked pretty fit but I felt miserable on the inside.
In 2018 on the right, I measure my level of ‘fit’ based on how I feel. Today I had packed my gym back to go to the gym after work. Well little did I know we were going to get hit with a giant snow storm and my 1.5 hour commute turned into a 3 hour commute. So instead of forcing my body to go to the gym, I came home and did a quick workout because I WANTED to.
Fitness to me no longer feels forced. I want to feel good when I workout and have energy. I want to have a healthy mindset and not a restricted one.
I never want anyone to feel like they have to look ‘a certain way’ to be worthy. The body you are in today is GOOD enough. Whatever kind of fitness you did or didn’t do today is GOOD enough.
1 hour booty workout with bands. Strive for progress not perfection.
Not afraid of crusty bread 🙋🏻♀️but that hasn’t always been the case.
In college when I knew nothing about working out I spent the whole summer of 2013 vowing not to eat any carbs (did not know fruit was a carb). At the end of the summer I didn’t look any leaner or stronger, but I definitely was all sorts of hangry craving pizza.
While I’m still working on finding the right nutrition to fuel my body and allow me some flexibility, I’m happy to say I love bread. So much. 🥖
