‘The Soul ain’t nothing without the heart’ #DWASH .
Vibin’ to my rhythm;
using my time.
Don’t have much,
Keep that in mind.
Fought to get here;
And I ain’t never through.
Commitment to self is the greatest thing I’ll ever do. .
Safe & sound -
Feet on the ground -
No need to look around,
Peep straight ahead.
Don’t take all day to recognize sunshine just like #common said. .
I’m Grateful -
Released the pain -
No longer hateful.
Never thought that peace of mind could exist like THIS -
no more tears, baby.
Just HIIT after HIIT’ ..
Digging deep & staying put’
Growing roots & steady rising. Forget what you thought and put the time in. .
Redefine the meaning of ‘get your grind on’ shit, it ain’t pretty - that’s true - but you’ll never forget the day that everything you dreamed of starts coming to you. .
It’s not magic.
See what investing your time will do.
This ain’t fiction.
Pure fact -
Lose the act.
Create your space.
Legacy calls you.
You past due.
Time to elevate.
Imma call you ‘GREATNESS’ -
Touching mountain tops that WE haven’t even seen yet. .
Done with the wait list.
All eyes on me; We up next’ 💯
“I’ve given up on many things through my life;
On life itself, On people, on love, But never on myself…” - Samiha Totanji
Some of the toughest times in our life are the ones that define us the most. They bring us to a place that we never thought existed in our world. Bringing us face to face with unchartered territory; to an experience that quite frankly, we never thought would happen to us. .
Life is unexpected. It has a way of either preparing us for the next battle or beating us down into submission. Sometimes I think that I took a beat down just so that I can be prepared for the next round. Ya feel me?
Loss. Death. Heartbreak. Things that will take us all the way there & back w/o apology. And here we are.. lives to live, routines to stick to & bills to pay. Quite frankly, we got THANGS to do. And, not only do you feel empty, but you also feel like nobody gives a damn. I mean for real.. everyone shows up for the main event, but what about the after hours. The days, the weeks, the months after.. that ‘feeling’ doesn’t go away. It just changes shape.. changes form.. becomes a new part of your existence. Something else to deal with today & every single day of our lives moving forward. .
A truth that I have come to terms with many times over & over. Only because I have come to understand that it is a shared experience as you meet and love on people overtime. .
Death. Loss. Heartache. Again. Things we all either have dealt with or will have to deal with this in this lifetime. Calling us out on how strong we believe we are. .
And here I am. Here you are. I love you more now than ever before because I know your heart as it is today. I feel you more now than ever before because I, too, have walked this path.
Blessed to walk w/ you hand in hand as we guide each other into the next experience that is in store for us. Because whatever it is, I already know that it is good. .
Faith in self demonstrates resilience. Creates Consistency by its very nature. Shows what’s possible when making a commitment to allow the emotion to mold you into someone greater than you ever have been. Remembering to love & forgive like a 4 year-old. #GutCheck 🙂
Action will take you there’ Practice what you preach and there will never be confusion. It’s only a matter of time before the fruits of your labor will start to show. Consistency is the deal-maker. Impact is the outcome. Dig deep & push through to the other side of it; from the beginning of your day all the way to the end of it. Not perfection. Just the best you’ve got at that moment. Practice makes presence. No better time than now.☀️ #DWASH

Years ago, if I didn’t have your support, I would break.
I would use it as an EXCUSE to quit.
To doubt myself.
To change my mind.
To second guess myself.
To hesitate to take action.
I was literally caught up in my FEELINGS. #StraightUp
I was stuck in my head.
Praise the journey y’all;
Cause if you are still reading this, it ain’t ova! It ain’t eva ova!
Every single day EVERY ONE OF US has the same opportunity’ it’s called ‘#24Hours’ 😉
@etthehiphoppreacher says.. show me your schedule for today and I can tell you where you will be in 5 years’ .
#TIME is one of the few universal truths in which we ALL SHARE without restriction. #BeGrateful .
Once I understood the TRUE VALUE of my time,
I lost the FEELINGS.
I lost the RESERVATIONS.
I lost the EXCUSES.
I lost the JUDGEMENT.
And, in their place, I found Time!
I found ENERGY!
I found SPACE!
I found POSSIBILITY!
I found the NEXT STEP ON MY PATH and am now walking the journey .. literally ONE DAY AT A TIME. #SlowAndSteady 😁
All people are blessings, y’all! WE all serve as each others’ lessons in one way or another.
No love lost -
Just information EARNED ✌🏽. #MovingAndGrooving .
I’m catching the hint and I’ve got the clue’
GROW.. and keep it pushin’ #UpAndOut 💯
Indecision is the thief of opportunity’ #JR .
Hesitation often occurs when we are caught up in what somebody else thinks or feels about the decisions that we make about our lives. And, yet its my life to live. My purpose to serve. My goals to accomplish. My reputation to create. .
Our lives come down to the decisions that we make on the daily. We have a choice between functioning on ‘auto-pilot’ or becoming a ‘decision-maker’. You decide if you are going to stand up to life. ‘If each day you are unsure of who you are and what you know, you will never become anything.. that will be your reward.’
There are three decisions that control our lives - .
1. Choose what to focus on
2. Choose what things mean
3. Choose what to do
Do it for you. .
‘Legacy over currency. Every time.’ #GV .
Ive become so engulfed in self awareness that my ‘pursuit of happiness’ is taking me EXACTLY to where I NEED TO BE’ .
I’m tapping into my strengths by literally embracing my weaknesses with openness and honesty. .
Losing the judgement.
Expecting nothing from people, but rather holding myself accountable. But I’m tender with myself. I love myself. I honor myself by being real with myself. And, my choices reflect that, now. 💯
I don’t hold grudges. And I refuse to front. But I am here to serve through my ability to relate. Indulging in my process daily so I can continue to create. .
Do what you love & never work a day in your life. How do you do that?
Become a person of value by first investing in yourself and then providing your strengths to the world.. simply because we can’ .
Ever feel so tired that you - can’t do ‘NOT ONE OTHER’ thing? - despite a full night’s rest, you still are dragging the next day? - Ever been invited somewhere & you don’t FEEL like going because it requires too much energy to add another activity to the schedule?
Not going to lie’ got to a point in my life where I thought this pattern was normal. Got to a point where even accepting this excuse from people was alright w/ me. When you operate on a low frequency, you attract it. Slowly but surely, it becomes normal ‘to be tired’ all the time. Whether we operate on a high frequency or a low one, we don’t get there over night. .
Repetition in whichever direction we CHOOSE to go will create the vibration in which we flow. So where is your energy right now? Are you flying high or are you laying low? And, is this honestly where you want to be? .
Sometimes I would literally be on auto-pilot and wouldn’t even stop to think about ‘where am I right now?’ And I’m not talking about my five year financial or retirement plan. .
I’m talking, how am I doing TODAY? When’s the last time I danced to my favorite song with my hair brush as a microphone in the mirror? Or, tried a new work out class? Read a new book? Went to a matinee by myself? Jogged around the block? Bought myself a drink at a new restaurant that I have never been to? Invited your co-worker out to lunch? Had a spa day in your own bathroom? Ate a giant piece of cake and had seconds WITHOUT REGRET? Say ‘’NO!’ Stand up for yourself? Do something that scares the hell out of you? WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU REMEMBER LIVING YOUR LIFE WITHOUT REGRET? .
It’s when something dramatic happens in our lives that we tend to get out of our heads & into our hearts. This is when people are full of raw emotion & the best intentions. We are reminded that life is short & that it doesn’t last. Our routines are put on pause and we are here. .
Each moment matters;
Every inch counts.
Refuse the things that keep us from living out the mantra that bring us our Peace of Mind. CHOOSE THE MOMENTS THAT KEEP us there.
I tell you.. when in doubt, stick to the script and go sweat it out! Hit up the local park this AM for my holiday sweat sesh and ran into the local community function celebrating the holiday! Yes!!! Nothing like positive energy early in the morning! TONE FOR THE REST OF MY DAY.. officially set! Surround yourself with people that get it - people that give off positive energy.. IN REAL LIFE! Nothing like Connecting IN REAL LIFE! You feel me?! It’s good for the soul, baby! Because when you feel good, YOU DO GOOD’ .
Major shout out to the local community leaders for hosting this OUTSTANDING event for the us! You made my day and I have spread the love to my fam bam and friends! Good vibes are contagious! Keep it flowing! Yes!✌🏽 .
Tell me’ Is there anything that you have always wanted to try? Or, is there something that you automatically ruled out because you never thought that you ever could? ..
No matter who you are or where you come from there are STILL things in this life that you have yet to try.. to accomplish.. to overcome. If you are alive, you’ve got some more living to do. You’ve got more memories to create. You’ve got new LIMITS TO SURPASS; Points to prove & scores to settle with no one other than yourself.
First time climbing the rock wall @mulligan_palmdale
this past weekend. I had three choices, easy- medium or hard. I chose medium. It couldn’t be that hard right? Once I was strapped up and ready to climb, I was told that I had three chances to get to the top. Funny... when she said that, I wondered.. why would I need three chances? You just climb to the top. How hard could it be? Needless to say, ya girl only made it half way!!. Every muscle in my body was trembling & my right arm was about to give out at any given moment. Felt so good to push my body to a place it’s never been! Falling without warning is fun, exhilarating and made me even more determined to get up that wall. Ahhh! Challenge accepted; super eager to get to the TOP by summer’s end no matter how many times I fall & no matter how many people are watching! I’ve got to keep getting back up until I reach the top! This time last year, I wouldn’t have the nerve to even get in line & even think to try this’ and today, I am here! Claiming my next physical goal like what?! ..
I feel good; empowered. Alive. Committed. Haven’t felt this way to the core of my being in a long time. I’m hungry to push my mind & body to places & spaces I have only dreamed of achieving. Smiling all the way because ANYTHING is possible. .
Best burrday gift ever to see my only son in action living his dream no feeling in this world can compare to what happiness he bring to my life I love u #DWash im 33 today and you 18 y’all do the math kid changed my life when I was only a kid God’s favor ain’t fair turned my Ls into Blessing
Day 90/90 - ‘ I feel keeping a promise to yourself is a direct reflection of the love you have for yourself. I used to make promises to myself and find them easy to break. Today I love myself enough to not only make a promise to myself, but I love myself enough to keep that promise.’ #SteveMarabali ‘Life, The Truth and Being Free’
First time in a long time that I finished something that I chose for ME. I feel like ...myself, again. Except, this time around, I have so much more experience under my belt and I AM CLEAR’ 🙏🏽 Love that I FINALLY turned my healthy habits into a lifestyle of daily practices that have put me into a position to live my best life, inside out. It took a few years to get here.. Mind set & all. It takes practice and most of all, it takes courage, to say it out loud and to do it on purpose every single day.
I’m empowered with a fresh, new perspective and am encouraged to continue my journey with grit & grace.
Grateful for the WOMEN who participated in this journey alongside me and were willing to show their authentic selves DAILY. Grateful for the leadership who created this movement, LOVED ON US HARD & without exception. Sweat & Soul Tribe is transforming this WORLD one woman at a time! Grateful to ALL my friends & family that have been so encouraging & supportive. Grateful for the women who have reached out to me and want to move forward in their own wellness walk! I am so excited for you!
Self care is a part of the journey. But, we need community to thrive. That’s fact! No way around it; no matter how independently viable any of us claim to be, ‘No man is an island’. Grateful that I said ‘YES’ and chose to connect. Definitely one of the hardest & BEST choices I ever made and I can honestly say that this experience has changed my life forever. #BlessedAndThriving ✨
Day 87/90 - ‘Smile because anything is possible’
Sole focus on achievement will burn you out’
It will suck the energy right out of you.
The beauty is in the inch by inch progress;
Acknowledging the wins that only YOU SEE is worth the risk.
Embracing the wins is what will pull you through to the next moment.
And even then, nothing is guaranteed for any of us.
Got to take it day by day, full on & full out. .
We all are in the same boat, figuratively speaking.
We can’t change the past & we have yet to experience what is to come’
We ALL have the ‘NOW’ .. the only place in which we each have FULL CONTROL. This is our window of golden opportunity.
Anything is possible’ Believe that’ .
Day 80/90 - Recalling this golden nugget that I will take with me forever.
‘Whenever I'm faced with a vulnerable situation, I get deliberate with my intentions by repeating this to myself: .
"Don't shrink. Don't puff up. Stand your sacred ground." .
Saying this little mantra helps me remember not to get too small so other people are comfortable and not throw up my armor as a way to protect myself.’ Brené Brown

Day 79/90 - Good Vibes Only! ✌🏽🌴☀️ Keep it real.
Keep it simple.
That’s just my flow.
I trust it.. because it sees me through every single time’
I get it from my daddy’
Whenever I ask him for advice.. I always remark at how his one sentence responses just MAKE SO MUCH SENSE’ because when you hear the truth, you know it. Simple as that’
It doesn’t take all day to recognize sunshine’
We know who we are and we know what we must do’
The work comes with creating the environment in which we will thrive daily; where we can create and continue to manifest our most exceptional selves without unnecessary distractions. These are the things that drain us; mislead us; confuse us.. keep us stagnant.
I am aligned.
This journey has become about ‘How I feel about myself’ and how is that reflected in my daily choices’ remarkable when you have the ability to objectively evaluate yourself. Scary stuff.. but definitely a step in the right direction.
Reconnect with yourself;
Rediscover your passion.✨ #Wellness#Coach#DWASH#VitaminD#TransformTogether#GoodVibesOnly#SweatAndSoul#Tribe#Lifestyle#GoodVibes#LoveLife#Aligned#Health#Wealth#Abundance#Mindset 🌴🌞💯

Day 67/90 - Literally blew my mind by how people really do WANT to talk about their health & nutrition. It makes sense, right? It’s a universal conversation, so why should I be surprised? But when I look at the numbers, it’s clear that a majority of us are not talking about it’ and we simply just need to’ #MindBodySoul
I’m talking about the large percentages of our population that suffer from obesity, heart disease & diabetes.
I’m talking about the stigma of mental health in our country & how this perception impacts our communities in terms of unhealthy living habits and a lack of quality support services.
I’m talking about how our culture promotes IMPOSSIBLE STANDARDS & IDEALS as the norm and how we keep chasing these fake lives that are simply unattainable.
And, so we create stories and limit ourselves to labels that define us within this place that just isn’t REAL.
The human spirit .. THATS REAL. Who we are when the phones, television & internet is turned off.. is who we are’ And, having a conversation about health with people.. I realize, will always bring us to that place.
No matter the reality you live in. Or would like to portray .. your health will always be the true indicator and tell all of where we are really at’
Having conversations with women about health always leads to other things.. Self-esteem
The reality is.. a healthy lifestyle is NEVER ABOUT LOOKING GOOD.. it’s about FEELING GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF AND BEING CONFIDENT IN YOUR CHOICES EVERY DAY’
If you really want to know how somebody is doing.. stop asking ‘How are you?’ Start asking ‘What are your health & wellness goals? I promise you .. you will have the in depth conversation that you are looking for’
This journey is allowing for me to reconnect with myself in ways that I have neglected and now cherish more than ever. And, even more, allowing me to connect on this same level of respect with other women who are aligned in the same walk.
I encourage you. I urge you and I strongly recommend - just start having the conversation.
Day 65/90 - Turn the pain into power’ .
An instance can change the course of our lives forever. Once we truly believe that, we can never leave our fate in the hand of another willfully. We take full ownership of who we are and where we are going regardless of our past or current circumstance. .
The next step must always be forward ‘hand in hand’ - with intention to serve a purpose greater than ourselves as individuals. With intention to leave our footprints so deep in the ground that our children can see the path that we have laid out for them to follow. .
Yes, our lives are short. Smile when you can, cry when you should and do what you would. But, never forget that our legacy lasts forever. Investment in self and active pursuit of personal and professional development is a necessity because our communities and our families are worth continuing the work. #mood 💯
