Sharing my JOURNEY....

Thank you!

It's amazing to look back in hindsight and realize that the toxicity in my lifeline. The lifeline in what I had as a job was causing me to make decisions (I will be accountable for my part) and have certain behaviors that were even more toxic than the job itself. 

Thank you for shedding the toxicity and those truly unwanted behaviors that were no longer serving the "greater" ME!

Although I'm without a job (but looking) I realized what I don't want, and understand that with this new job... those experiences with the last job have given me a new perspective in asking those more probing questions to ensure that the new job will be a perfect fit.

I'm excited to see what the future has to hold.

Cheers to finding the right fit!

Hard work and Determination pays off!

Hard work and dedication has allowed me to lose 7% body fat and drop 4 pants sizes.

This transformation has been amazing! A challenge that I have been struggling with or trying to make happen for the past (at least) year. It goes back to this...

Either you get tired of hearing yourself "say" you're gonna do it or you get tired of being the way you are... Either one will lite that fire to motivate the change. Thank you for not allowing the change to happen forcefully through some kind of medical induced situation; it was on my terms!

This morning after meeting with my amazing trainer "Josh" I realized (again) that I am my worst critic. I need to lighten up and enjoy the ride. Thank you Josh for being that rock who reminds me that I'm doing just fine!!!

Cheers to the goals evolving to... muscle toning and strength training.

Hard work does payoff!

How did I do it?

Life was so busy while I was working. Quite honestly, I'm not sure how I did it.

Now life seems so much more quiet and still. The gift of having the time to concentrate on me is going to be remarkable. I am so excited to be home to handle the things that need to be taken care of; neglected really.

Thank you for the courage to take a stand for myself and how others were treating me. I wholeheartedly knew I deserved better, but the financial scarcity kept me there. Thank you for allowing me to claim my power back and to take charge of myself and my boundaries.

This next chapter of my life is going to be remarkable!
