MY REAL & RAW LIFE UPDATE: Treat Your Body Like the Enemy, and it Will ALWAYS work Against you, Treat Your Body Like your Ally and it will Always Work WITH You
Treat your body like the enemy, and it will always work against you. Treat your body like your ally and it will always work with you.
MY REAL & RAW LIFE UPDATE...
I have been learning so much after my most recent show and am still learning as I go. One thing that’s for sure is I have found so much peace in taking time every day to write or think up statements like this, formulate beliefs that serve me, and transform any loatheful thoughts into loving ones.
In order for me to be able to do what I love, my body has to begin functioning the way it’s meant to. If I don’t take care of myself with loving actions, thoughts, and belief patterns then it will not allow me to do what I love when I want to do it.
I need to start decreasing my cardio, upping my food intake, and recomping my body without going so far that I’m doing a cut that kills me heading into another show.
My body hasn’t had a menstrual cycle (period) in 2 years aside from one that was forced by my doctor with the prescription of progesterone for 10 days. This got my period to show up but then it was never to be found again lol. Even though this is pretty common and doesn’t necessarily mean problems for everyone, I still have to get it in check and my coach actually wants me to regulate it before I compete again.
Now imagine for one second, you haven’t had your period in 2 years, you’re already up 10 pounds from stage weight (and advised not to go too much more), you are told you also need to begin packing on Muscle and decrease cardio (which will cause a shift likely to create recomp which is good but can require lots of self loving thoughts w some fat gain that comes with it), oh and you want to compete in February but with the way your body is functioning you have to regain hope and belief that your period will come back and regulate, your body fat will not surpass muscle growth in a way that creates more struggle than progress, and all this must be managed in a matter of a few short months...
I am embracing this challenge as I go forward in my lifestyle and in my journey. More to come...more to share.
I’m learning to be more kind to myself, to be okay with the things I need to do, and begin treating what I have left untreated for so long. And reminding myself I am capable & everything is always working out as it’s meant to.
I am finally seeing my doctor on Tuesday to get an action plan in place for what i shared in my last post. I am realizing that putting off treatment could now have hindered my growth and opportunity moving forward. This is my reminder for EVERYTHING In life, especially with all of this... to do the damn thing, the damn thing you know, in fact, every damn thing, and once the damn things are done, KEEP GOING!
I have to accept what comes with the actions I NEED to take and take full responsibility knowing that if I don’t take them, I will only suffer the consequences moving forward.
Now, listening, honoring, and loving my body is taking on a whole new meaning. I’m letting go of shame, guilt, comparison, and pride when it comes to the way I look, and remembering that this is MY life...all of this is up to me...I can’t let the demons take control.
My mind needs so much TLC too, competing has been so much of my focus that after my last show a lot of my anxieties surfaced. I have decided to look for a therapist again since it’s been so long since I’ve seen mine and It helped me so much when I was depressed, suicidal, and anxious. There’s no shame in getting help!!! It’s better to acknowledge where help is needed than pretend things are ‘fine’ and eventually lose control / see it get worse...
Now I must be mindful, through all of this; I MUST LOVE IN ORDER TO HEAL AND I MUST HEAL IN ORDER GROW AND I MUST GROW IN ORDER TO LIVE MY DREAMS.
I feel the emotions, I feel them deeply, I still don’t have this all figured out. But I hope that by being real with you, you can see that I am human, I struggle, and I have to constantly address problems in my mind too...
What’s your favorite way to overcome challenge and stimulate growth mentally, physically, & emotionally? Let’s support each other💜
I think it’s time for me to share this...
I will be honest, I have hesitated to post this because I wanted it to be ‘the perfect moment/the perfect comparison’ but really, I had fears around what people might think of me.
What if they don’t want to hire me as a coach because I have a coach? What if they think I only started competing again to change my body? What if they don’t understand? What if they blah blah blah.
And what I have to remind myself is this; I AM SURROUNDED BY THE MOST AMAZING, LOVING, SUPPORTIVE SOULS! I attract the most awesome clients and people meant to work with me who feel called to WILL! I have the coolest followers and you guys are growing daily, i feel truly honored that i get to connect with you. And Coaches need coaches! Plus, I’m Not qualified to work for you just because of a transformation. I have knowledge, research, and perspective too which makes me an ideal coach for so many people!
So, I have to step up and finally share this out of respect for my mission and purpose of raising self love and helping others build more than just a body!
The top photos in the bikini posing are from June 2, 2017 (12 weeks out from the show that restarted it all for me) and the second pic photos are from May 10, 2017. In May I was weighing around 142-145 pounds consistently. I felt like my body didn’t represent who I was but that I had done so much personal development and healing of my body image, good relationship, and self love that I realized everything was about intention and I really wanted to compete again and felt ready to give it another go mentally / emotionally.
I didn’t start to compete this time out of self-loathe, I did it for the athlete in me who missed it and wanted to see what she could accomplish for herself again. That decision changed my life; now I can’t get enough of this sport. The lifestyle extremes I’ve been through are for another post but I really wanted to highlight this journey I’ve been on.
I have so much more to say and will be sharing very soon! But for now, I’m living and loving this life, pushing my body, and honoring my souls goals while ENJOYING and SAVORING every damn moment.
I decided to take measurements before my most recent show because the fact that we can literally mold, morph, & shape our body is INCREDIBLY EMPOWERING! Swipe to see those too!
To my coaches; thank you so much for always being here for me, guiding me and most importantly believing in me enough to push me to the next level day in and day out. I could not have done this without you, for always guiding me in my posing, being there to fill me with confidence and love, and making sure I look amazing for the stage. As well as creating so many opportunities for me. You’re both family to me ❤️
For information on my online self love, mindset, and fitness coaching please send me a DM💞😌
Last Saturday’s Competition was one of, if not the most, fun & fulfilling shows I have ever done. I felt different than I’ve ever felt at a show or on stage.
It’s always interesting to me how everyone wants to know or cares more about how you place after a show versus how you feel. When people ask me how the show went I tell them it was amazing & the BEST most muscular and conditioned I’ve ever looked & i had NEVER been happier on stage or with my journey in this sport.
Then they ask how i placed & it hits me that to me, it goes so much further than surface level fulfillment & it always will. Yes, I knew I earned my placing. But beyond that, this sport gives me so much more than awesome trophies/medals as I’ve shared countless times before.
I am so grateful to be ending this season on a high note knowing I have given everything I could + more. I have been developing my physique & making adjustments with the coaching & support of Team EDGE
This last weekend I brought my best physique I’ve ever brought which is the best reward I can experience as an athlete. Placing top 3 at this show was an honor with such a competitive class with amazing women & my coach reminded me that this is a huge accomplishment & that I DO have a competitive physique.
I spoke with my coach Joe DiScuillo yesterday & he helped me put more into perspective as I reflected on the outcome of the weekend, my goals in the sport & the industry of fitness specifically, as well as where my head is at.
We both know I have time on my side & since I’m in no rush, it can only benefit me moving forward as it really is about the lifestyle & embracing/LOVING every moment of this beautiful journey!
I’m going to take the remainder of the year to build & improve so I can step on stage again in 2019! As many of you read in my last reflection post, I have become a new person & In life, we are all seeking personal/self fulfillment I am open to achieving & receiving that in any way it presents itself. I am forever grateful for the support of my coaches, family, friends, teammates, clients, & followers. Life is so exciting❤️😭
HELLOOO beautiful 🍪!! I would like to say THANK YOU... for following me, supporting my journey, pages & my business!
My wildest vision was born The moment fitness saved my life. I say saved for a reason...Facing depression & anxiety for years with fitness being my only treatment/bandage I found so much peace/healing in exercise.
Unfortunately though, it was truly just a physical bandaid on a wound that needed stitches. I was suicidal & always in fear of if my depression would drive me into a wall, hang me from the ceiling, or drown me in a tub of water. I had no idea what to do about it so I relied upon fitness to patch me up.
I was seeing such amazing physical results but something was still missing...I developed a very unhealthy relationship with food & exercise & even though I live such an amazing life & was happier in my body shape... I was still depressed.
How could this be? I thought my cure was in the weights + obsessive restriction of food?
THAT’S when I realized something...Fitness is about Building More than Just a Body...THAT was the moment I discovered my purpose. I was already a personal trainer & I already had my own business going but I always wanted to give people MORE.
But I needed to heal a lot for myself. So I focused on the root of the problem...self-loathing thoughts & behavior patterns. I found ways to love myself through actions, intentions, & beliefs!
I became so invested in personal development+self discovery that out of the DARKEST times of my life came to be what I know to be my souls purpose...
I want to eradicate self-loathe on the planet. It is my belief that the more we love ourselves, the more love we radiate out, & thus, the more we can receive! I believe that w/ self-love anything we desire can come to us from a place of ease/flow because when we love ourselves so much we are naturally inspired to move & fuel our bodies or pursue our goals in ways that help us have the most EPIC human experience.
I’m not just passionate about exercise & nutrition. I am passionate about coaching people w/ an emphasis on the importance of self-love, mindset, behavior change modification, & wellness development ALLLL coming together with a training & nutrition lifestyle that works for YOU, your goals, + your body’s needs!
I appreciate you being here, following me, & even reading this. It helps me to carry my method/philosophy of Building more than just a Body further & wider to help more souls
I created a printable with 18 ways to love yourself on it that includes some of my MOST favorite ways, HERE for you to download for free. I hope you love it as much as my clients and I do❤️
You probably didn't know all of this about me...but it could be exactly what you need to know right now.
You probably didn't know all of this about me...but it could be exactly what you need to know right now.
-I am Running my own business and building an empire.
-I have 3 jobs.
-I am a Full time student.
-I am in a fully committed relationship and have been for 2 years now.
-I spend time with my family and my friends/people I am connected with.
-I train in ju-jitsu.
-I workout 6-7x/week in the gym.
-I take care of my living space.
-I am conscious of what I put on, in, and around my body.
-I prepare and consume healthy meals.
-I commit to learning outside of school.
-I do inner work daily which consists of journaling for mindset work, spiritual work and healing through meditation, breathing, and earthing, as well as self love rituals, and whatever I need in the moment.
And I enjoy every single day of it.
Let's be real.
Building an empire online is not a 12 hour a week gig with small things to do and/or manage. It's 24/7 with everything you can imagine to do and more and I fuckin love it.
Working 3 jobs is not a task. It's a blessing. I love everything I do.
Outside of my own coaching business here's what I do:
-mindset and business mentoring for clients within 2 different and specific coaching groups of two mentors with two separate niches.
-fitness coaching and personal training at my local YMCA.
-Is it right to say I'm a workaholic? Yes.
-Is it right to say I'm committed to personal growth and development? Yes.
-Is it right to say I have my shit together? For the most part, yes ;).
But I'm not here to sugar coat this for you.
I'm also very sensitive.
I feel deeply. Not only within myself but for others.
Is it right to say I struggle? Absolutely.
I was interviewed the other day as an expert guest for an amazing woman's membership site. She asked me about some of the struggles. I was interviewed before that by an amazing marketing strategist and he also asked me the same thing. So I figure it must need to be shared.
-I cry. A lot.
-I beat myself up sometimes.
-I am my worst critic (not to say I'm not my best encourager though)
-I am by no means a perfect girlfriend.
-I experience shame, guilt, and fear.
-I sometimes feel like I don't do enough.
-I sometimes feel like I'm being used or taken advantage of.
-I sometimes feel lonely since I don't have a ton of friends. (The ones I do have are frikkin kick ass tho--this came as a result of me calling in the right people and doing the inner work)
-I feel like a failure sometimes.
-My depression and anxiety didn't disappear. It resurfaces and reminds me to feel.
-Sometimes I feel numb to emotion.
-Sometimes I feel regret for being so consumed in work and passion that I am not present in the moment.
-I have had days where all I wanna do is sleep.
-I have had days where I can't lift as heavy.
-I have had days where cardio actually seems like a death sentence.
-I've had days where I didn't believe fully.
-I have days where I don't show myself the love and appreciation I deserve.
I've felt it all. Trust me.
Again, the list goes on.
It is not hard to pursue my passion. In fact, it's freeing and empowering.
This whole life thing is an emotional journey of lessons learned and ascending through our souls purpose and aligning within ourselves daily.
I recognize that without feeling and acknowledging the things I go through I cannot help others go through it and come out on the other side.
The depth of which I take time to heal myself now I can then guide others through their healing.
While my life is amazing and fulfilling there is always room to grow. We are meant to go through the darkness (and love it) to come out with light and love.
I make mistakes.
I feel stress.
I have questions and doubts.
The difference between me getting things done and making a massive impact on this world or crumbling under the weight of it is recognizing that our 'problems' are actually weightless and we are the only ones who determine what weight they hold.
Every aspect of our being, good and bad, is meant to be loved, appreciated, embraced, and adored.
We are meant to endure so we can empower.
I go through life knowing everything is exactly as it should be and I am exactly where I need to be.
I choose everything in my life.
So can you.
We do not seek perfection when we believe, truly believe, that everything, as it is right now, is perfect.
I love you.
I see you.
I feel you.
I understand you.
I support you.
I stand with you.
We are in this together. Let's raise our consciousness collectively and create a life full of freedom, empowerment, service, and love.
What do you endure everyday?
What makes you a badass?
What do you commit to in your growth as a soul?
I want to hear your story.
I'm here for you.
Calling women into my programs by belittling their bodies has never and will never feel good to me. In fact, it would go against everything I believe.
Regardless of 'business and marketing strategy' I know, trust, and believe that the women I am meant to work with understand the true benefits of Building More than Just a Body by emphasizing the importance of self-love, confidence, mindset, behavior change modification planning, and wellness development all coming together with the proper training and nutrition program.
I know that there are women out there who can see and already KNOW that they are deeper than surface level.
We don't need to be body shamed, hated on for our size, or looked at differently because we aren't at our peak state.
In all honesty, the body is a byproduct to all the in depth work I do with the people who work with me.
The body comes with ease and genuine flow as we focus on the inner work and identity creation that comes with developing a body that serves you and makes you feel amazing.
I will never support companies, coaches, or programs built on the backs of making women feel like they are less than they truly are.
We are allowed to love our bodies.
We are allowed to feel amazing in them.
We are allowed to look after them.
We are allowed to desire change for them.
We are allowed to fuel them properly.
We are allowed to push them past their limits.
We should NEVER allow ourselves to hate on our bodies.
Last time I checked, that never got anyone results; at least not ones that lasted or felt fulfilling.
Hating on yourself can look differently for everyone, here are some examples:
-Speaking Down to Yourself
-Judging, Poking, Prodding, and Squeezing at yourself for not looking a particular way.
-Neglecting to condition your body's muscles
-Pushing feelings away and not giving yourself permission to feel and heal because you 'have to be strong so you don't have time for this'
-Fueling toxic relationships with people, food, and yourself.
-Forcing yourself to work through pain, fatigue, or low energy.
-Deciding not to listen to your body when she speaks to you.
-Ignoring the requests of your soul to truly live your most empowered, free, healthy, and fulfilling life.
these are just a few examples. Maybe some of these felt familiar to you, I know I can relate, I used to live in a self-loathing relationship with my mind and my body and my soul.
While we can and should invest in bettering our health, fitness, and bodies. We must approach it from positive energies and intentions which serve us.
When we come from a place of hatred we only generate surface level results or no results at all in most cases, and they sure as hell don't last.
There are people, companies, and industries which will make you feel like you HAVE to change yourself now. And call you out for not fitting in your dress, being able to squeeze fat on your tummy, and having thighs that rub together or have cellulite coating each surface area of your body.
These are the same companies, industry, and people (I say people because I don't qualify them as 'experts', 'coaches', 'specialists', 'mentors' or whatever they like to sell themselves to you as with their negatively backed ad campaigns) who put you on programs that only generate results for the SHORT term.
Because the problem is not your body, or your fat, or your muscles or lack there of, or your skin, or your hair, or your face, or your level of conditioning, or your performance, or your clothing not fitting, or you name it.
The problem lies deeper than that.
The problem is rooted in things like:
-Negative, non-serving mindset
-Past Experiences (even all the way back to your childhood and usually all the way back there)
-Unhealthy relationships with people, food, and yourself stemming from thoughts, beliefs, experiences, and mindset.
-Lack of fulfillment or feeling of fulfillment (even if it is unconsciously known, it can still be there and normally is)
-Desire for things which do not come and are then sought in our food, choices, etc.
-Current struggles, trials, energy, and imbalances
-Unhealed and neglected wounds
-And the list goes on...
I am sharing this with you because I am on a mission to help women start building more than just a body and truly fulfill and live out their most empowered life.
This is about taking an approach that generated physical results through inner work coming together with outward implementation and inspired action.
Your healthiest self is not only created by working on your body. Your healthiest self comes down to so much more than that. Because YOU are so much more than that.
If this resonated with you, struck a chord, or spoke to you I want to take this opportunity to invite you to start Building More than Just a Body with me.
I am hosting a retreat in nearly 4 months where we are going deep into what it takes to build more than just a body and we will be touching on, highlighting, and going further into the root of exactly this.
This is not just a retreat, it is an opportunity to change your environment with a 5 star experience and VIP treatment.
This is about coming together with 5 other women during your journey and supporting one another along the way.
You won't just be getting the retreat.
There is bonus coaching involved.
After the retreat you will be held accountable, guided, coached, and mentored by me to continue your journey through and through.
There are a few different packages available to you.
I invite you to allow yourself to go all in and truly commit to yourself and a life changing experience.
If you are interested in hearing more about the retreat and your options shoot me a message for more information and to apply or just click the link in the comments below.
The next 2 women to enroll will receive $200 off the package of their choice and a bonus gift which will be revealed upon purchase and discussion so that it is extra special to YOU.
There are 5 spots left for the retreat. I know that if you are meant to be there, you will be there. I know that if you feel called to come, you will come. I trust that the right people have read this and will make themselves a priority for this opportunity. I also know there are women who read this and felt called to work with me and will reach out to me to do exactly that, however it may look for them.
If you know that's you, I am really excited to be working with you and celebrate a new lifestyle which fulfills you on levels past the surface and truly embraces you at your core through love, embrace, strength, peace, and empowerment.

p.s. If you know anyone who needs to see this, please share this with them, you never know, it could be perfect timing for them.
"I am so happy and grateful for my transformation and happy for hers too"
This came out of me while journaling in gratitude this morning.
I was really connecting to a feeling and just writing as gratitude flowed through me and I almost crossed this out because I thought, "who is this 'her'?"
Then I realized. That 'her' is my soul.
I am happy and grateful that my soul has transformed with me.
That she's shown herself.
That she's opened up.
That she's appeared in the world and is standing up for herself and her beliefs.
That she's healthier.
That she's more free.
That she's happier.
The crazy thing?
I didn't consciously think to write this down.
I consciously thought to scratch it out as a mistake.
I then realized who really wrote this...
My soul took control and decided that she belongs in every aspect of my life.
I thought she had.
She thought differently.
So she showed up and she made it known that she deserves to be recognized and acknowledged.
I fought the idea thinking, well technically she is me. But this was just to cover up the truth that sometimes my soul and I have space between us that's filled with a bunch of emotion either serving or limiting.
And this was her way of letting me know, "I am here. I transformed with you. Be grateful for me because I am grateful for you."
So it hit me.
When I would and do feel intertwined with my soul it is natural.
When I am only acting from my headspace I do not feel 'one' with her but rather like we are just holding hands on the journey.
It's not only about knowing my soul is apart of me and choosing to sometimes showcase her or listen to her or become her.
It's about truly recognizing that she and I are the same.
She's been here.
And I am grateful that she has transformed with me. Even when I neglected her consciously I took the time to connect with her when I felt that I was neglecting her.
This was a beautiful reminder to not just 'connect' with her. But to become her. And truly embody her. Because she is me at the deepest rooted level there is.
I am grateful she naturally came out of me today without me even consciously realizing immediately what happened until she stopped me from crossing it out and I took a deep breath and saw it for what it really was and felt her strong presence actually flow out of me, naturally.
This would never happen if I didn't recognize her power and love and abilities and strength and spirt.
Because I have. She has too.
We are transformed together.
We are no longer just connected every now and then.
We now seek oneness over connectivity. Because oneness allows us to show up together consciously and unconsciously;naturally.
❤ Your Soul and she will ❤ you back more deeply than you ever knew possible.
Building More Than Just a Body
[Vulnerably emotional share]
"No thought, just feel"
Closing my eyes again I reconnected to my heart and discovered pain which I had repressed for so long and convinced myself it was 'not my pain to feel' despite its immense affect on my life, my beliefs, my choices, and my overall well-being.
I have always known I was afraid of being alone, loneliness, or loss of connection. I knew I had a lot to work through; there was healing to be done.
I always keep things real here and I want you to know, despite the way I show up online, I actually don't have a ton of close friends. And I haven't felt very 'connected' to people in person in a very long time aside from my boyfriend.
There are not a lot of people I can call out of the blue and open up fully to, or at least I haven't allowed myself too (I am going to get into this). My boyfriend is my closest friend of all but I don't really have more then 2 close girl friends who I feel I can really turn to.
This has been hurting my heart lately as I have felt so reliant on myself and I felt so distant from others, even family.
While I recognized this and came to many of my own conclusions I never opened up to the depth of which this pain and this problem stemmed from...
"I sense you still have some depression"
"Do you often get a sore throat or a cough?"
"I am getting sadness and grief around your heart..."
"...Does any of this resonate with you?"
Me: I don't feel that depressed anymore but when I do it is triggered by the potential of losing someone or something or me wanting to run from a confrontation that could cause this in fear of it happening. I don't normally get a sore throat or cough, no. Sadness and grief in my heart, I am not sure.
I knew what was happening. He was tapping into the energies with my chakras.
Then, we went deep.
Shit got real, real fast.
Heartache was uncovered.
Attachment was released.
And 3 beliefs were woven into me from all of the breakthroughs and deep discussion through the healing process:
1. It is safe to trust
2. It is safe to love
3. It is safe to forgive
I am still sitting with all of this but I feel so much more open and light after this healing session.
I realize that cutting the ties between these 2 significant people's energies to forgive them is going to allow me to be more open in life to receive.
Wow? Sound familiar, Celeste? Just yesterday I did a video on "What do you need to release in order to receive what you truly desire?"
Apparently, I too needed to do a lot of releasing, we all do though.
I had to release energy that was not serving me and which I had pent up in what I have always been told to be my strongest chakra--my heart. I couldn't hold that there if I wanted to show up as my highest self...
I feel more open to:
--New friendships (deep ones)
--Loving new people in my life deeply and strongly without the fear of losing them or going through all the fallouts I used to have.
--Forgiving more freely and openly with loads of acceptance and true objectivity.
The past month the word "healing" has been coming up a lot for me. Then all these different types of healings have showed up for me, of course.
Today I was grateful to be guided through a Theta Healing Session with Mike Marschhausen. I appreciated his willingness to go all in with me and to create a space for me in which I felt open, comfortable, and confident in sharing deeply so I could heal.
While I am still getting my bearings after the session, I can say I feel there was a necessary shift which occurred for me, which I cannot deny or neglect.
I highly recommend you reach out to Mike and ask him about his Theta Healing. In all honesty, I didn't even know what it was, I just did it. And, I don't think I could even explain it now if I tried! All I can say is massive energetic healing.
Any action towards bettering yourself, your life, your body, your health, and your relationships is an act of self-love.
Every day I have the blessing and privilige of helping others live a life rooted more deeply in self-love while truly freeing themselves from self-loathe.
To care for yourself, to allow yourself to heal, to truly understand and listen to yourself, that is self-love.
When we look at the world we can all have very different perspectives. I respect them all. I find that perspective is highly based on your beliefs, your mindset, and the energy and love in your own heart and soul.
I truly believe that the more love we have for ourselves then the more love we can radiate out into the world and thus, the more love we can receive.
Any amount of outwardly, worldy, universal 'peace' must first come from inner peace.
I invite you to join me on my Self-Love Creation and Self-Loathe Liberation workshop.
All the information is on the page which I am linking in the comments below; you can register there too!
10% of every registration will be donated to YMCA-Miller Family and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County
I can't wait to see you there...
P.S. If you felt touched by the story I shared and feel like you could really use some in depth healing around this I again encourage you to reach out to Mike Marschhausen he specializes in Theta Healing and does it full time. If you need me to connect you to him I can or just message him on your own :)

I chose self love when...
--I gave up the things which no longer lit me up inside.
--I stopped after one suicide attempt.
--I demanded I go to therapy.
--I snuck out of a verbally abusive relationship.
--I stopped hanging out with people who didn't care even half as much about me as I did them.
--I sat in my car alone at lunch in high school to protect myself from negative energy and feelings I was left with.
--I stopped putting up with men cheating on me or lying to me.
--I looked in the mirror and chose to start taking care of my body.
--I turned down party invites which made me feel hurt and uncomfortable
--I stopped allowing people to guilt trip me into doing things for them or 'because they needed me' when in reality they just didn't feel comfortable on their own and would ignore or neglect me when they felt comfortable.
--I stopped putting up with an environment full of people who didn't 'get' me.
--I started my health and fitness journey and got a job as a coach to pay for my gym membership
--I started sleeping more and adjusted my schedule after almost crashing my car from nearly nodding off to sleep
--I started cooking healthy meals and pushing my body past its limits.
--I stopped allowing people to make me feel obligated and started allowing myself to trust what I truly felt and gave myself the power to say no.
--I allowed myself to realize I had an unhealthy relationship with food even when I was at my most fit physique.
--I allowed myself to heal.
--I invested over $30k in my personal development in one year.
--I wanted to rest and sleep instead of going to the gym because I knew I'd be too out of it to even benefit.
--I listened and trusted my heart and quit a sport I played for my whole life and even signed to play in college so I could pursue what truly made me happiest.
--I continuously follow what makes me happiest, not what is 'right' to others.
--I allowed myself to love and be loved completely
--I focused on my bodies health and function over its look and shape.
--I could have given everything up and gone the 'easy' way which in my mind would have been so much harder.
I don't need to continuously go on and share EVERY time I chose self love. Because, the truth is, I choose self love everyday, in every moment.
No, it is not always easy.
And yes, I do sometimes fail.
No, it does not require painful work.
Yes, it does require deep healing, releasing, liberation and creation.
No, it doesn't have to wait until x,y,or z happens.
Yes, you can love yourself RIGHT NOW.
It comes down to a choice. A decision. An identity shift that you are no longer a person who loathes, rather you are a person who loves.
I am hosting a Self-Love Creation and Self-Loathe Liberation workshop.
We will be diving deep into:
---Discovering More ways to Love Yourself
---The Difference Between Affirmations and Actions and how to find a Healthy Balance between the two which Supports your growth.
---Digging Deep into WHY it's important to love yourself more for YOU not my why, or so and so's why, YOUR why.
---Daily Mindset Ritual to Align with your Souls inner beauty and warmth while setting you up for a successful day.
---Specific Self-Love exercises will be walked through during this live workshop
There will also be time for questions of course!
This will be fun, exciting, deep, and potentially quite revealing for yourself.
I am so excited for the people who have already enrolled and locked in their spot.
This workshop would normally run for $97 but I am offering it for $20 for the next 6 days because I want to empower as many people to join as possible so we can empower others since 10% of every registration will be donated to the YMCA-Miller Family and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County
If you know this is something you could really use right now, why hold back any longer?
It is no coincidence this opportunity was placed in front of you today...
