My journey is my own. #peace #love.

Haters will hate. People will say ‘she doesn’t need to lose weight’. Not every journey is just about physical need or desire. MANY are emotional, mental, and/or medical!! 


All to often WOMEN find the need to compare to others journeys and find it easier to criticize each other vs. build each other up. We don’t know what’s going ‘On’ with each other day to day. We need to STOP assuming and criticizing on others and be supportive instead!!


*Long Unapologetically Me Post*


4 months ago I was at a healthy, safe, normal, average weight and size for myself. SURE….currently right now I’m a healthy and safe size also. So what’s my post about? Here’s my journey. Here’s my why! 


For ME. 3 of those 4 months I dealt with ALL DAY on off sickness. Not just morning sickness. Bananas and Oatmeal became my friend lol. 


Pregnancy hormones do a wonder to you body. So with those pregnancy hormones and the nausea being self-medicated with those two foods I gained 12lbs and was steadily increasing. Normal for me as I gained most of my weight in my first trimester during my first pregnancy and acceptable with providing a healthy space for my growing baby. But in my short stature that’s quite a bit and I already wasn’t fitting my clothes. 


After finding out at 12 weeks we lost the baby –> Mission IMpossible came into full force. I needed to feel me again. I knew that the extra weight I had gained wasn’t doing my body any good (physically, emotionally, mentally) at that point anymore and I didn’t want to go out and buy new clothes. I wanted to fit in the clothes I had at home. I also knew that in time, when the time was/is right, I hope to get pregnant again and I don’t need to tack on weight to the already gained weight. 


Some may “hate” on this post. But THIS IS Unapologetically Me!! This is my journey. I OWN IT. I don’t need the reminder of losing my baby every time I try to put on my clothes that don’t fit. I want to feel the old me, the still healthy, the average size, ME. 


Your Journey is YOURS. My journey is MINE. 


Whether you’re looking at a goal weight or pant size of 12 or 6. It’s YOUR journey! YOUR goal!! YOUR MISSION!! 


#MissionIMpossible. I LOVE my accountability groups because we are all on our own mission!! We all support each other AND there’s a ZERO tolerance of “haters” within the group. It’s nothing but pure LOVE and SUPPORT whether it’s a LITTLE goal or a HUGE one! We all have our OWN Journeys whether we “Understand it” or “Don’t get it” To EACH their own!! 

Stop hating on others. Stop comparing. USE that Energy to RUN FULL FORCE in YOUR OWN Journey WHATEVER it may be! Offer understanding and support AND HEY…If YOU NEED that positive environment JOIN US!!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
