Helping yourself!

The times that I feel my best are the time that I just finish working out.


Did you know that when you work out you release chemicals in your body that our “feel good” chemicals? It’s the same chemicals that our body gets when taking anti-depressants.


It’s like self-medicating yourself.


I know what it feels like to use anti-depressants. Years ago I dealt with PMDD (huh…what’s that? google it). I also went through a rollercoaster of depression and anxiety last year with my miscarriage. Anyone who suffers from some form of depression suffers differently but for me exercise, once again to the rescue, became my fix. With eating healthy, living a healthier life, and working out in some way, shape, form…I wasn’t on those pills for the PMDD very long. 🙌🏻👍🏻❤️ and I knew from that experience I could do some self-help with my struggles I experienced from my loss last year.


Just from my personal experience and what I KNOW works for me. EXERCISE is my daily medication. Feeling stressed, anxious, depressed?! I always feel better after getting in some form of exercise.


This morning my ROCKSTARS and I met up and we ROCKED OUT another *ZOO* workout together❤️. My hair definitely shows the aftermath a bit! 😆 While I was feeling some pent up energy and emotions after being sick last week and out of routine it felt great to be back on track getting my daily fix.


So no matter what’s happening to and within you…remember you can give yourself a bit of a *pick-me-up* just by fitting by some form of fitness in daily!! You are worth it!! You deserve those natural “feel good” chemical releases daily too!

Day 74!

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!
