#TBT #StartedFromTheBottomNowWeHere

OLD #SelfieAIN’T NOTHING NEW ABOUT A SELFIE

Here it is. Another #TBT picture capturing the level of my unhealthy lifestyle. Just to note I’ve ALWAYS been the Queen of #Selfies even in 1999! I look at these photos now and feel so far from that place, but it wasn’t long ago that I would NEVER share my story let alone post a photo! It would bring tears to my eyes with even the remembrance that I was that heavy. I was ashamed, I was sad, I still carried that “I’m a fat girl” mentality even as a fit person. I remember my mentor and dear friend, Patricia Moreno, saying to me, “Your past is a gift and one day you’ll appreciate your story.” I remember my eyes welling up with tears and thinking to myself, “When is that EVER going to happen?” I couldn’t believe that was possible to FEEL like a fit person even in a completely fit body. I weight 125lbs I was working out 2x a day and eating healthfully, but my mind was that of my formerly chubbs self.

LET ME OUT

There was a day about 4 years ago when my parents were coming to the city and I had them bring my photo albums from college. We were looking at the photos and dying laughing! My mom kept saying, “You weren’t that big!” as we were seeing me grow larger and large in photo laughing harder and harder. I was like, “MOM…come on, I’m huge.” I realized that I WAS that person, but I’m NOT her now. I’m truly grateful for her, she taught me so much and I think it was that day that I set her free. I was done holding on to who I was and FINALY owned who I am and continue to grow to be.

WE ARE WHAT WE FOCUS ON

The thing that kept me from feeling “fit” is that I kept seeing my old story. I was focusing on NOT being that old story and even though I had a new body it was with the same mind, so to me it felt the same. It sounds mental, but it’s the truth. You’ve got to see the picture as it is, with no judgement and then decide where you want to go. I see myself today as I am. I’m super excited for where I’m going. I’ve raised my bar and I now know that with this shift I can inspire others to get to their dreams (bikini competition HERE I COME!)

MY DREAM

I wish for everyone to live in a body that they are proud of and that they have created with love. It’s simple, but I believe that if you live in a body that makes you feel strong you can go out into the world and do anything you dream possible. I want to light up the world with my energy and I’m inviting you to join me.

RSVP TO YOURSELF

Today is the day you make the shift. Take a #SELFIE and #GETFIERCE #ItAllStartsToday See yourself honestly where you are and know in an instant you can be something completely new. This is your new beginning…Welcome!

YOU ARE FIERCE!

PRAISE YOU (or ME)…Like I Should!

WERQ ITSELF PIMPIN’

I don’t speak enough about myself in my life. My blog is my space to share with you what I’m thinking, feeling, as well new things I’m doing in the arena of health and fitness. I was approached by a writer for FITMAPPED to be interviewed for one of their blogs. This is after being featured in an article in Well + Good last week. I realized that I’m so unwilling to share about my successes that I don’t even have a PRESS page on my OWN WEBSITE! Hello, that says something.

IF YOU BUILD IT, IT WILL COME!

I FINALLY created my PRESS PAGE. You can see all that I’ve done. I’m a top fitness instructor in New York City and despite my education in athletic training, I’ve only been working full time in the industry for 4 years. This is my life’s passion and I know it’s what I’ve come to do. I never thought that sharing my health and weight loss story would shift so many lives and inspire others to share their stories, but it has. I get emails daily asking how I did it, what was my moment and asking for help. My clients have lost thousands of pounds and it all began when I opened up and was willing to share my own story.

YOU ARE THE EXAMPLE

I encourage you that NO MATTER WHAT you’re going through; a break up, a medical issue,   challenges in your job, weight loss to share your story. It will not only free you from the “you’re the only one” feeling to perhaps shifting you to being someone’s hero. YOU my friends have a story to share. What’s your story? I invite you to share it with me below or email it on over!

YOU’RE WICKED FIERCE!

Gettin’ Your ISH Together

My YearYOUR TIME!

It’s Monday, the most common day of the week to start a new. The year is nearly 3/4 over and I want YOU to have your BEST year yet! If there’s anything that you still are wanting in your world…it’s OVER! It’s your time to start thinking, “I GOT IT!” and to make whatever you’re still waiting for to  happen.

IT’S DONE!

Make THIS day the day you do for you. Whatever you want is possible and it starts right now. Write what it is you want as if you’re already there, that you HAVE it. Take 5 minutes to create your vision for your body, your career, your relationship…whatever it is you’re focusing on and make your dream BIG. Let the feeling that you GOT IT flow within you. As this next week passes and you feel like you want to steer yourself in a direction that doesn’t fit with your goal, reread your vision and make a decision that will get you there; go to the gym, don’t eat the cookie, go on the date, ask your boss for that raise…WHATEVER it is THIS is the time to do the work. It’s getting you closer to your dream one step at a time! Remember YOU’RE FIERCE…start livin’ like it!

(T)WERK IT!

I’m STILL reeling from all the Britney! I’m giving you some new tunes to supplement that track with. You can still keep it on REPEAT, but these songs will be some that you can add in when you need a change of pace. Keep the Brit for hills, your hard sprints and in moments where you’re envisioning yourself in your teeny bikini (Shout Out!) I love how much music can inspire us to work hard, push deeper and shake a tail feather. May these beats bring a deeper sweat to your workout this week!

SHAKE IT!

  • Belly of the Beast (feat Elan) – Finch & Infuze
  • Excuse My Rude – Jessie J
  • Bust It Wide Open – Lil WII xCrizzly
  • Wrecking Ball (Matt Nevin Mix) – Miley Cyrus
  • Dirty Talk – Jason Derulo
  • We Go Down – Krewella
  • Pride – U2 vs Tiesto
  • Slow Down – DJ Snake x Yellow Claw x Spanker
  • Sweet Thing – Mary J. Blige

MUCH LOVE!
