Bending over backwards…no more.

*She would bend over backwards to help everyone but herself.* -Old Self #fridayflashback


Does that sound like you?

Do you *do do do* for everyone else but put yourself last?!


Now…this concept of protecting yourself and doing for YOUrself. This was something very hard for me for a long time. I am a recovering people pleaser lol. Well I still try to make everyone happy and content. But I’ve also learned that sometimes that causes self-harm. Soooo it still isn’t easy BUT I can understand the necessity of it better now.


It’s ok to take care of YOU! You have to *DO you* and *take care of you*.


Some wise words and advice from a great book, “You are not being selfish enough if constantly giving and not getting equal energy in return.”

{T is for Transformation ~ Shaun T}


Remember to LOVE yourself and give to yourself! You deserve it!


AND here’s a tip. Listen to some books/podcasts etc. TOSS THAT Label “self-help books” out the door and see it at personal development and growth. Truthfully —> This is something I am so grateful for —> podcast/streamable apps etc. Which have enlightened me and given me HOURS of productive time in the car AND hours of education and brain stimulation 🤓. I’ve “read” more *my choice* books this way in the last 4 years then I have ever before.

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!
