One of my favorite types of movement (beside running of course) is dance, and I truly believe there’s magic in it. It lifts your spirits by making you laugh or cry. It makes me feel sexy but also inspired. I love it because you can do it by yourself or with others, and if you’re like me you are getting double exercise because I sing and dance at the same time! Whether you are working it on dance floor or watching a performance the movement of dance is spirit moving in my opinion. I dare you to try it tomorrow in your own time. It will make you feel amazing! 🌿💖💪🏽💃🏽 #healingthroughmovement
Too often the day goes by without us sharing a kind word with anyone. The best was to lift yourself up is by starting with others. Giving encouragement to those in need is one of the most rewarding actions that you can do. So get to it! It will go along way! 🌿💖💪🏽
Sometimes it can be so hard to motivate yourself let alone others, but this week let’s be each other’s support system. Pick one (or more) person per day to lift up and encourage them to continue their goals. You’ll find that it is very contagious, and while you are doing it you will stay motivated yourself. Good vibes are always reciprocated!

I’ve always been sensitive about my breastfeeding journey. I was only able to breastfeed my children for 1-2 weeks before I had to supplememt with formula. My milk supply would never come in. I went to see specialists, and though I followed all their tips and instructions they gave me, it still wasn’t going well. Even after my latch was corrected. My low point came when my lactation consultant suggested I try and pump my breast, and when I tried I could barely fill the bottom rim of a bottle. I was discouraged and heart broken. Even today I feel like I could have been better. I was extremely stressed, which didn’t help in regards to producing milk, and I eventually learned that having a c-section and the medications involved before and after had a significant effect on my milk supply as well. I continually engaged nurses who told me ,”Oh everyone can breastfeed” Which lead me to believe there was something wrong with me. I felt judged every time I would prepare my baby’s bottle with formula. Then my husband said, “He (Cahlil) won’t look at you any different. You are still his Mommy.” He was absolutely right. Although all my children received the colostrum in the hospital I never was able to come to peace with my breastfeeding struggle. Over time I have learn to be ok with it. I know the wonderful benefits associated with breastfeeding, and I am now even a certified breastfeeding peer counselor (I had the hardest time in that class btw). Although I did not succeed, it does not make me less of a mother. So for all you mommas out there struggling or are breastfeeding champs I applaud you. Keep giving your baby the best, and the next time you see a mom pull out formula and judge remember everyone’s story is different, and it absolutely does not make her less of a mother. You all are queens in my eyes. Happy Breastfeeding Awareness Month to you all! ☺
Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Dedicated to all my queens! It’s time to take control of your circumstance. I run into so many women who are not where they want to be in life, and they tend to blame it on everyone else. When really it is time to look in the mirror and change into the person God intended you to be. Certain things you’re just going to have to live with, but if you have to make a choice to change, make the right choice. Be assertive, not aggressive. Ask for help if you need it. Be willing to stand for yourself, your family, and your community. Most importantly stay encourage and ask God for help. Nothing is out of your reach. You can do it!
Be well you guys!
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
Keep going… you got this!
