Don’t feed the ANT’s

Do you have ANT’s?


No. Not talking about those pesky little buggers!

🐜 🐜 🐜 🐜 🐜 🐜 🐜

I’m talking about Automatic Negative Thoughts.


Those thoughts that immediately pop into your mind and either:

🗣 talk you out of what you were thinking of possibly doing

❓make you question things in an unproductive way

😔make you doubt yourself

😡make you angry or sad 😢

😱 stress you out….& more


ANT’s are no way supportive or beneficial to us when they alter our mindset in an unproductive manor.





Time to SQUASH those ANT’s. Try this the next time you have an ANT crawl in on your idea or thought!

🤚🏻 The 5 Second Rule (thanks to Mel Robbins) — Activate the prefrontal cortex in your brain 🤓AKA – STOP 🛑 & REDIRECT 👏🏻 your thoughts 💭 within 5 seconds —> by simply counting down — sure sounds a little crazy 😜 BUT it works (read her book 📖 for more scientific explanation)

Reset your MINDSET with something more positive that can come about from your idea or thought.

We obviously can’t control the uncontrollable BUT we CAN reset our mindset and refocus on BETTER – POSITIVE things WHICH can help keep us motivated, on task, in a good mood, successful, etc.


This can really work with all aspects in life (job, family, fun, friends, goals, dreams, etc.) now…don’t feed your ANT’s – squash them!

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!
