Jeremiah 30:17

For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal,declares the Lord… Jeremiah 30:17.

The past few weeks I’ve had the biggest transformation in awhile & I’ve been working HARD at my mindset. I’ve felt a CLOUD of anxiety just lingering over me and I’ve had to make some FOCUSED changes to my lifestyle to figure out how to blow that cloud away. I’ve been focused with ‘shifting’ my Mindset with NOT *worrying so much about the uncontrollable and focusing on what I can control*, what I told myself, what I fed my body, and working hard at hardly working (Honestly).


**Long Unapologetically ME post**


5 Months ago: 

•I was hit hard 

•I’ve been on a rollercoaster of emotions for months

•I was riddled with hormones that were not balanced–sending mixed messages–going crazy trying to balance out

•I was carrying my 3months/13lb pregnancy weight gain. 

•My mindset was all over the place. I was afraid of becoming pregnant again. I was depressed that I wasn’t. 

•I was worried that my doubt and up and downs were becoming ‘annoying’ to others (with voices saying ‘Get over it already’).


•I shared about my journey and it still baffles me and saddens me to how miscarriage still seems so taboo. I battled many emotions. Blogging helped me so much. ONE thing that blogging didn’t do…was fix me physically. I was determined to get back to me. To feel me. To feel normal. To not feel/look pregnant when I wasn’t. 


People didn’t get it when I said I wanted to go back to the pre-preg me. They said you’re not overweight. I KNEW that. BUT the BIGGEST thing I truly believe is whether your 40lbs over your ideal weight or 13lbs –> THE MIND STILL SUFFERS THE SAME. I didn’t want to be reminded of what that weight gain was from. I would just remind myself that this was MY JOURNEY and my struggles and not theirs so they WONT get it. 


I WAS struggling with my own sadness. I didn’t want to touch and look and see my body the way that my *Angelbaby* left it. 5 months now has passed going on 6. September marks the month my baby was due. I still have days were I get so sad wishing I was feeling the kicks, wondering who he/she would have been or what she/he would have looked like. BUT finally PHYSICALLY I am finally feeling back to me. This has been a HUGE healing step. 


Are you ready to SHIFT your Mind.Body.Spirit?! It truly begins with YOU — YOU MUST transfer the INSIDE to see it on the OUTSIDE!

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!
