Continuing my week of moderation. I had a great discussion on this exact topic while teaching earlier this week. The first step of a healthy lifestyle change is changing your behavior, and be realistic with yourself. If I can do it you can too! 🌿💖💪🏽

This morning while I was waiting at a stop light I saw a woman in front of me smoking a cigarette. She continually took puff after puff, and it had me thinking. Even though she is probably fully aware of the effects of cigarettes she continued to inhale and exhale putting that toxin in her body. I just thought it amazing as adults we will continually put something bad in our bodies despite the long term health effects.
I just want to encourage all of you to be more aware of what you let into your body. Whether its food, smoke, etc. Even certain people (Yes I am talking about SEX!). Your body is to be treasured, and you only have one, so fuel it to work for you!
Be well you guys! 🌿💖💪🏽

Exercising is amazing, but don’t push yourself so hard where you ignore your body experiencing fatigue, dehydration, and pain. Extra is not always better. I can remember trying to do extra when I ran track, and the result was the feeling of being burnt out! I wasn’t allowing the time for my body to heal and become stronger. Recovery is part of the process. Be mindful of your body. 🌿💖💪🏽

Just sitting and thinking… I am so grateful for the strong relationships in my life. From my amazing husband @kuttingedgetransport to my children to my parents @nishnut and my sisters @msgooden84 @pugster77, to the awesome team of women I work with day in and day out @brickiefay , I am just filled with gratitude. I truly believe that everything I’ve done is preparing me for my best future yet, and I couldn’t do it without my support system. I AM GRATEFUL FOR YOU! 😙

Hi Everyone and Happy Thursday to you all! I have a confession to make… I have been eating terribly since Saturday. I don’t know what is going on! I just want comfort food! It is no coincidence that yesterday just so happen to be National Greasy Food Day. Although I have been indulging in bad foods this week, I am still reminded of what these foods will do to me in the long run.
Consider how you feel after you eat greasy food. You feel heavy, tired, and sluggish. It is more than likely you will be good and ready for a nap after. The fact is greasy food is just fat. Too much saturated, trans fat, and bad cholesterol will eventually clog your arteries and lead to all kinds of health problems.
Immediate affects may include weight gain, bloating, and acne. Long term affects include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease or stroke. I am sure most of you already know this information. My intentions are not to harp on you, but to give you a sense of awareness. Although I love the warm feeling of comfort food, I know I have to make smart decisions for my long term health. That is not to say I won’t have bad food every once in a while, but everyday is too much. We should eat with the purpose of nourishing our bodies; not destroying it. I will definitely try to do better for the remainder of the week. I hope you do too. Be well you guys.
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
P.S. Lunch from today 🙂
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.
Fit For Thought: Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a brand new opportunity to rebuild what you want.
Live.🌿 Love.💖 Well & Fit.💪
