A new rap...hope this empowers you!
On the treadmill this morning I got super inspired and this rap flowed through me so I wrote it out so I could share with you!
I hope this empowers, inspires, or motivates you to BE YOU and go all in for your soul’s goals!
I believe in you!!
If you feel inspired to Share this so others can benefit too that’s always awesome!!
PS here are all my lyrics written out:
“Ask me why I do it or just watch me while I do it
Either way you’ll see me goin hard everyday
Pushin all the negative vibes out the way
I ain’t here to impress you
I’m here to impress upon you
that you can do anything you set your mind to.
Don’t believe me?
That’s your problem
But it’s okay bc together we can resolve em
Yep those limiting beliefs
Look yourself in the mirror and tell em
You guys got nothin on me
Caz I am committed givin my all before they say she done quit this
Nah That isn’t you
You’re worth more than that so go all in and be one of the few
Achieves their dreams and makes their goals realities
The world needs the power you’ve been given
So step up to the plate and start makin a killin.
Makin a livin
off doin what you love
This ain’t a test
No plan b c or d
Choosin all of the above would be a disservice.
you’re channeling your higher self Who focuses on plan a without gettin nervous
But remember to honor the emotions
Pain is a feelin that’s why they call us human BEINs
And all that you’re experiencing is energy in motion
Momentum It’s moving you forward
Soon as you decide to torment em
The demons I mean
That live inside your head
trying to keep you from feelin Free
You got this
Listen to your intuition
No time for Wishin
Focus on the task at hand and put anything that stands into your way into submission
Caz every moment is a blessing and if there’s anything worth rememberin
it’s that life is meaningful
and you deserve to feel the pulses
of the universe rushin through your body like bullets shot from a pistol.
What are you waiting for
Stop half assin
You can Go all in or die with the vision that you never made happen.”
LET’S TALK ABOUT SETTING BOUNDARIES (from a space of genuine love!)
Seems like many of the connections, followers, friends, and clients I have have been wondering about boundary setting so I thought I’d share some of my best insight that you can implement RIGHT NOW.
First things first, you may not like this but, we cannot set boundaries with other people or even things if we do not first recognize the boundaries we need to set for ourselves.
Or Maybe you already have lines drawn but others keep crossing them...then we would investigate where you are crossing your own boundaries.
“What am I doing to myself that doesn’t feel good?”
Maybe it’s as simple as turning off the phone when working out because you can’t be disturbed and need to focus.
Or choosing to come home and put your feet up instead of beating yourself up over things that still ‘need to get done’.
Second, what the heck is a boundary anyways? Define the word ‘boundary’ clearly.
“What is a boundary?”
“Why do I want to set them/feel I need them?”
Third, put yourself in the other persons shoes. I know it’s cliché but trust me here.
Consider this, maybe people ALWAYS need your help, and this is a boundary you’d like to cross since your return is minimal or it takes you from getting things done that you’re expected to or need to.
So, you begin half listening to others or shutting them out completely hoping it will keep them away.
But what this really does is just put up a wall, it’s caution tape over a sinkhole.
You have to reestablish a foundation.
Well, instead of keeping yourself distracted by doing your work while barely listening or staring at your phone while your partner or friend wants to talk, you can politely do the following;
1. Recognize their existence and desire to see/seek you. Undivided attention.
2. Acknowledge their request and explain your situation, expectation, needs, and availability to commit.
“Hey girl totally understand you could use a hand with the project you’re working on and I’ll be happy to help you once I complete this in the next 20 minutes.
Since you deserve my full support I want to do it when I can provide that! If I don’t come in 20 minutes you come find me, Is that cool? Thanks!”
There is no hatred in that, that actually feels better to do and to receive than just shutting someone out or resenting them for coming to you.
A boundary is not a wall in my opinion. It’s a standard and you’re the only one who can bend it, mend it, enforce it, and build it.
Say NO to the things your soul is resisting but do so in a way that actually resonates with your soul and makes you feel more connected to the energy of freedom and love.
This way when you emit the need to set a boundary with someone, they have a more clear understanding of your request and are more likely to honor it without hard feelings.
And if someone crosses the line, even after you KNOW you set a clear boundary, then they are in the wrong and you have to decide how to address that.
But if they cross a line that you never really drew anyways, that’s on YOU to take responsibility for and learn from and try again.
I could go on and on about this but it’s much easier to understand when it’s relative to specifics of your individual situation.
If you are struggling to set a clear boundary in your life at the moment, I am happy to make myself available for a quick call to help you gain clarity on how to set the boundary with love.

What was your main takeaway from this? I would love to know!⬇️
If you want to “#RedefineHealthy” then why would you perpetuate the problem that persists in society on health being related to size?
I think at this point we all know, smaller does not always equal healthier, more muscular doesn’t always equal stronger, and more or less fat doesn’t always equal healthier either.
If you follow my Instagram stories then you would have seen a screenshot I took of a fitness influencer’s post that triggered me.
It was a quote; “goodmorning to everyone except the people who don’t gain weight when they eat whatever they want” with a caption: “I think we can all agree these are pretty much the worst kinds of people” and then a few hashtags, one of which was #redefinehealthy and it honestly made me so mad.
How can someone who preaches redefining healthy also make a statement like this? It was maybe a joke but that doesn’t make it funny... and the caption made it even worse.
First of all, you don’t know what someone who ‘eats whatever they want and doesn’t gain weight’ is actually going through. Maybe they want to gain weight? Maybe they are perfectly healthy? Maybe they just don’t give a crap about what they put in their body? Maybe they don’t know how to fuel their body? Maybe they don’t make judgement on food they eat and choose to eat what appears to be whatever they want but in reality is what they need to fulfill their bodies needs?
AND WHY WOULD YOU SAY THESE ARE THE 'WORST' TYPES OF PEOPLE. Maybe what it really is, is that you just care about the way your body is shaped, not about the way you fuel your body, and the only reason you don't eat whatever you want is because you either think:
A. I can't achieve my goals indulging in other foods I love
B. Restriction = Healthier
C. I don't actually care about the fuel, just the shape it brings me, but I can't get the shape I want eating whatever I want.
Second of all, healthy does not equal a shape or size. In many cases, we can see that having too much or too little fat can lead to less than healthy states of function for the body.
Third, I’m not one to promote abusing the body. I believe it’s our soul’s greatest asset and should be treated as such fueling it with nutrient dense foods. But here’s the thing, some people can eat all of these ‘health’ foods and suffer from discomfort in their gut, weight gain, weight loss, or other physical symptoms where it makes them qualified ‘unhealthy’ in some way shape or form.
Fourth, understand how words impact people, even subconsciously. If we perpetuate this, then we accept it, and accepting it is NOT okay. We should be setting a new standard in the industry as coaches, trainers, and professionals, NOT feeding the standard that has caused numbers for things like obesity, eating disorders, mental illnesses, and yo-yo dieting to rise.
Fifth, I recognize that I’m different and not everyone has to believe in what I do or believe. I emphasize the importance of self-love and mindset when most of these ‘professional experts’ in the industry promote changing the diet and the exercise routine you follow... those things are important, but they do not matter or make a difference if you don’t love yourself enough to value them or see the necessity for your soul which can naturally inspire you to take care of your body.
Why do you think the industry has grown to billions of dollars and yet those statistics are as they are? We NEED to shift the focus...change the narrative...be REAL.
This will likely spark some level of controversy but I am not going to sit on the sidelines when thousands of people can be impacted by or partake in messages that just don’t solve the problems they claim to be ‘fixing’.
If you want to change the industry, you can’t profit off the things that have led to its failures in truly serving people.
I am on a mission to help others build more than just a body. I will give my heart and soul to this mission till I die.
And if that means risking being ‘controversial’ or ‘confrontational’ or ‘different’ then GOOD, it’s about time we start bringing awareness to the darkness.

Why Complain about a World that You Have the Power to Change?! What state of being do you commit to vibing at?!
I commit to choosing positivity, gratitude, passion, love, and service for my life, my environment, my state of being, my tribe, and the world around me.
E V E R Y S I N G L E D A Y
What do you commit to?
Even with the world often being portrayed as "falling apart" I choose to show up and produce a different energy, a different state, a different environment.
I choose to believe the world is coming together no matter what is happening. I choose to believe that my energy not only affects the world around me, but changes it.
Because chaos, madness, violence, distrust, and personal response to negativity is a choice.
You decide if the world you live in is going to be full of abundance in love, health, happiness, safety, freedom, and fulfillment. No one can choose that for you, no one can create it for you.
Lead by example, choose to be better, choose greatness, be aligned with what you choose to believe, and then take action, the rest will follow if you believe it and you relentlessly pursue it. Will you?
Build More Than Just a Body
You can talk about it all day but Nothing says “I’m serious” like making things happen.
If you’re not where you want to be, you haven’t tried everything.
There’s always more to give, more to experiment with, more to learn, more to work through or expand on.
I think most people fail because they don’t see the commitment they’ve made as a long term opportunity for growth, instead they see it as a quick jump to the top and if they try a few things that don’t generate results then ‘it ain’t worth it anymore’ and they give up.
But that’s just not how it works.
Whether it be building muscle, building a business, building your self-love, building a relationship, building a positive support system, these things don’t just ‘happen’.
Your actions today may not be creating an IMMEDIATE result but they are contributing to results you are setting yourself up for in months and years from now.
I think about the things I did when I started my business that have led me to some of the successes I see now, back then it didn’t seem to be doing much but now it makes more sense!
Anything TRULY worth it to you will be worth a lifetime of commitment.
It’s like your love life may not make sense or maybe didn’t but soon it will or is.
Or you could be finding faults in the relationship you have with yourself that you are now healing & it may be painful but it’ll be worth it.
I’ve been competing consistently for over a year with 2 ‘off’ seasons w/ the rest spent prepping/competing.
In that time, my body has changed but what may be minimal changes on paper are gargantua changes in the grand scheme.
Because of my consistent efforts for the last 6 years, & more seriously the last 2-3, it’s contributed to where I am today, & because of my consistent actions I take today, I already know I am well on my way to where I want to be in 5 years.
I love how much patience I have learned (& continue to) in building my business & building my body.
The thing that keeps me going?
PASSION, PURPOSE, & GENUINE LOVE!
People who embody these motives don’t give up on their truest, soul-driven dreams...

“IF YOU CAN’T PRONOUNCE IT THEN YOU SHOULDN’T EAT IT”
⬆️THIS IS A BUNCH OF BOLOGNA (🙃😉)
Allow me to explain⬇️
If people actually threw away all the foods with ingredients they couldn’t pronounce then I have a bad feeling that the world would be more nutrient deficient.
I mean...just consider this...
Açaí ACEYE ACEYEIEIEIEIE
Cacao cackcow cockow cohco cacayoh
Pecan peeCAAN peeCON
Okay but even more real examples:
Pyridoxine (really just vitami b6)
Cyanocobalamin (vitamin b12)
Thiamine mononitrate (vitamin b1)
Dihydrogen Monoxide (water)
Silicon dioxide (often natural in pantry foods or just put in a baggy and doesn’t ruin food lol)
docosahexaenoic acid (unsaturated fatty acid which technically makes it a health need)
(THE LIST GOES ON!!)
And to be honest, your ability to pronounce something doesn’t directly correlate to if you ‘should’ or ‘should not’ eat it.
Otherwise, you could study the dictionary all day and never have issues with food? Ya, I pronounce broccoli just fine and that tree ain’t a friend of mine🤷🏻♀️
Plus, That’s like saying your ability to understand quantum physics will determine how much the universe responds to your desires.
The result occurs regardless.
If food fuels your body with nutrients and makes YOU feel good, your gut function, and your body healthy then eat more of it!
If food doesn’t do those things, but you still enjoy the taste, maybe just don’t eat as much of it.
Fuel your body with the energy of LOVE with every bite you take and watch as your:
•your cravings change
•the emotional side of guilt or shame or pride just disappears
Because it’s no longer about MORALITY, it’s about the REALITY of what YOUR soul’s vessel requires to have the BEST human experience.
Nourish in love, grow in love, simple as that, you KNOW what is best for your body, time to honor that knowledge and fuel yourself with it, WITHOUT restriction or guilt, and instead from the motivation and desire to provide for your soul’s GREATEST asset, your body!
Just another #lovenudge for your day!

We need to STOP perpetuating these mythical mantras and START promoting educated, loving, freeing food choices/lifestyles!

Building More Than Just a Body
Even if all the money in the world was offered to me, to buy my soul, I wouldn’t sell it.
- - There is a personal share below that I have felt called to post because something tells me someone needs to read this right now - -
My deepest missions.
None of it can be sacrificed or exchanged or put on hold for more money.
Could. Not. Do. It
The best paycheck, raise, or investment is the one that comes from the soul.
No external source deserves the opportunity to take that from me (or you).
It is TOO IMPORTANT!!!
So when I feel called to work with someone I DO. And when I don’t, I DON’T.
When I left my most recent job I was asked, “is this about the money? Is there anything we can do to make you stay?”
I didn’t once consider it and I said, “you could offer me $100k+ per year and it still wouldn’t be enough to satisfy my soul which i value above all else”
I left. Then I was called by a company to be relocated, work for them, and follow their set principles for ‘wellness’. I turned this down without question. While it may seem “aligned with what I do” on the surface, I knew I couldn’t work for anything that was only a fraction of a bigger picture anymore.
Some people would call me stupid.
Some would say this is too risky.
Some would say I’m out of my mind.
My soul says: RAISE THE VIBRATION OF SELF-LOVE ON THIS PLANET AND BE BOLD IN YOUR PURSUIT, HELP OTHERS BUILD MORE THAN JUST A BODY, YOU ARE CAPABLE, THIS IS YOUR PURPOSE.
and to that I say: I AM IN. I AM COMMITTED. IT IS DONE. LET’S DO THIS.
Listen to your soul. Trust your soul. Trust your power. And be willing to lay yourself down for it, every damn day. REGARDLESS of what that means externally. Because when we value ourselves at the deepest level as a SOUL then we can begin to harness the power of our soul and the rest will fall into place...
Please comment below or message me if this spoke to you on some level...like I said, something nudged me to write this and share this piece of my story... I believe it was for you.

Building More Than Just a Body
Everyone always wanted to tell me how to live...
And I’m sure you get it all the time too.
Feedback and reactions from people in your life...you know,
Telling you what’s ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ without even considering what your core values are, what your soul craves, what you define as your BEST life and BEST self...
The key is remembering that their responses are not a reflection of your capabilities or possibilities...
...but they ARE a projection of that persons’ experiences, past, beliefs, conditioning, and desire to serve or protect you in your own journey as a result of their own thus far...
Not only can we choose to hear others and honor others in their desire to help us, but we can also recognize their own beliefs and behavior patterns and choose for ourselves what space WE choose to act from.
To put it in perspective...(and hopefully inspire you to follow your soul)
Here are some opinions I heard in my life that I 110% proved wrong and am currently proving wrong as we speak...
“If you graduate high school early you’ll miss all the fun year end things”
“You’re not going to prom?! You’ll regret that!!”
“Why don’t you want to play volleyball anymore? Aren’t you going to wish you kept your college commitment? Won’t you miss it?”
“Don’t Get too into fitness like these girls *shows pics of super muscled out women*”
“Doing a competition is so vain, and unhealthy, and selfish!”
“Why don’t you go to any of the parties or drink or smoke once in awhile? It’s part of the college experience!!”
“You’re going to school online....oh...”
“Why are you switching your major now? I thought you wanted to do this?”
“Don’t invest in a mentor right now, that’s more money than you have! You’ll go into debt!”
“Writing a book is so hard why would you want to do that, what makes you think you’ll become a best seller?”
“No one will invest money into online coaching, let alone a premium price, there’s just no one out there with money and the industry is so saturated!”
“Why would you launch a low price program when you could just sell a few high ticket?”
“Being featured in podcasts, online shows, online magazines, books, and blogs won’t help you or anyone!”
“How is launching this podcast going to help your biz anyways? It’s not even your ideal client, is it??”
“Being on a competition prep team is so bias that you’ll win just for that or other girls will and it’s all politics and you shouldn’t”
“You dated too much”
“You shouldn’t have a boyfriend you need to be free”
“Don’t quit your job for your business”
“You can’t do what you love AND make the impact you want AND the money, it only happens to like a small portion of the population”
And the list goes ON!!
I’d love to hear some of the things you were told you COULD NOT do then DID. Or some things you committed to and saw through despite the odds!
Comment below, let’s cheer each other on for saying YES to our soul and our goals and allowing NOTHING to stop us!
