"We must take adventures in order to know where we truly belong." #agnesanddora#bloomconference#utah#ibelong#bloom#saltlakecity My journey to SLC A&D Bloom Conference this past week has come to a close. As I sit here, slowly traveling my way back home, I can't help but reflect on the things I learned, the people I met, and the new goals I have set for myself in both business and in personal life. This trip has truly been a journey and an adventure... I can't wait to see where my future will take me!
So today I did something I never thought I'd do by myself - climb up a moutain. I climbed up Mt. Larcom in under 2hs which included stops because my legs hurt and to enjoy the scenery and take some pics. Its not the hardest mountain ever of course but its put a lot of confidence in myself doing it. Being alone meant no one else was there to push me or encourage me so learning I had that in me, and not just when I'm at gym, is a really good feeling. I'm very proud of myself even if I did go arse up on the decline 😂 #mtlarcom#powerthrough#confidence#kickingass#feelingempowered#everlast#worthit#training#physicalfitness#mentalfitness

So I didn't finish my whole hour #OTF class and I was just shy of 15 min to complete, but my legs were tightening up really bad... I was afraid to strain my calves again and then I'd be out of commission for reals! So basically, I gave into fear 😰- I'm disappointed with myself for that. I've been thru worse and I could have stuck it out. Truth is, I've been "out of it" for some time... and I need to work my way back up to where I was. I've had steady weight gain because of it, and I'm SICK AND TIRED of it!!!! So this is me PUTTING IN THE WORK!!! I literally dragged myself out of bed this morning and decided that mornings will have to be my class of choice to GET IT DONE... 👊🏽I'm challenging myself for what I WANT... and I won't give up. Slow and steady seams to be what the Universe is trying to teach me these days.... paciencía y fe is all I got! 👸🏻♥️🦄 LET'S GO! #loveyourselffirst#selflove#embraceyourcurves#beYOUtiful#beYOU#goals#curvasbuenas#feelingempowered#believe#nolimits#blessons#nyclove#nyc#sexy#curvaconfidence#kismet#universe#nolimits
I'm going to become an open book here for a bit. Maybe I'm over sharing, but I just felt I had to. Today when I was in the pool, I was listening to my #mellowvibes playlist while doing some 'yoga-like' stretches. This song came on (an acoustic cover of Titanium). As I was stretching and thinking of the song lyrics, it took me back to all the hurts that I've faced in my life because of my weight. Faces came to mind, memories that I hadn't gone back to in a long time resurfaced, people who rejected me without getting to know me, and... for the first time in my life, I felt that I drew strength from those experiences.

We had an incredible #homebirth where I felt safe, respected, and listened to. Well meaning people have questioned my decisions and I've been told "I must be brave" ...among other things hah! I have to say I'm not brave but I'm proud of myself for trusting my body, getting my mind in the right place so I believed in my ability to have an unmedicated birth. Homebirth is no walk in the park; I trained for it: working out, eating the right foods that would nourish me and the baby, seeking multitudes of natural treatments for an unbelievable painful sciatica that came at week 18 and still hasn't totally quit, researching the crumbcake out of the deep fears I had about labor, and watching every #TEDTalk#InaMayGaskin has ever given and every #birthdocumentary on #netflix ! Even with all my efforts, I could have still been disqualified from having a homebirth for reasons beyond my control. Thank you to the people that supported my decisions even if they were afraid for me or didn't understand why I made the choices I did. The fear they had came from a place of love. I know this choice is not for everyone. I am honored that my guardian angels were looking down on me to allow me the privilege of being able to have the birth I wanted; yes it was an honor and a privilege. Birth and labor are so unpredictable, plans change, and decisions are made quickly to prioritize the health of mama and baby and no birth should be considered "a failure" if things don't go as planned. Please honor each woman's decision for whatever birth she chooses without judgement. Sending so much love to my hubby for dancing with me thru my contractions and @dinamidwife for being there for 20 of the 26 hour labor and feeding me applesauce and chicken soup! Now it's time for the #4thtrimester These pics show the oxytocin flooding my body bringing tears and joy, and surfing those waves of contractions in the #birthtub Now it's #timetoheal#timetorest#nomeds#naturalbirth#birthisbeautiful#feelingempowered#firsttimemom#firsttimedad
For the past couple of days, I've genuinely found myself being content (apart from this killer toothache I've been dealing with for past two weeks). Feeling content is the definition to being happy. Can you really be be happy if you're not appreciating where you are right now? Yet my mind starts playing tricks on me to create problems when there are none. How long will this feeling last? Am I really happy? Could this be taken away at a moments notice? Then it goes on to worry about tomorrow. Self-sabotage. That's what anxiety causes; to worry of tomorrow and something that hasn't even happened and more than likely, won't happen. Dealing with anxiety, I've learned to catch myself relatively fast. Putting my focus on this particular moment, whether it means listening to each instrument on a song or looking at the paintings of the sky. It really is in the small details. Appreciating each single moment as it comes, is the secret sauce of life. And expecting - but not needing because your life is amazing as it is already! - more goodness to come your way! How can it get any better than this?!
How adorable is my family?! 💕 I was welcomed at the airport with this view (didn't snap the pic there so we recreated it at home!!) Momma sure did miss them! What an INCREDIBLE experience in NOLA, listening to inspiring and motivational stories of others that have made a commitment to changing lives. Now it's my turn to help. 🤗#feelingempowered#becomingabetterme#whoswithme
As I sit here, watching my fellow coaches coming on stage to celebrate their successes and the lives that they have changed, I can't help but to feel overwhelmed with emotion. The hard work and dedication of these ladies and gentlemen is so impactful in this world and I still can't believe I get to be apart of this team. - Watching our top coach get on stage and seeing her team behind her and how many people she has helped take control of their lives and build their dreams just resonates with me so much. This weekend has confirmed my decision to join this company and start taking the steps to creating my own future. - Did I mention I'm also lucky enough to be apart of the team that she helped build?! It's just so amazing to have a team behind you to help you grow and become who you were meant to be. - I am so grateful that I made the decision to be here this weekend. I chose to soak up everything that these coaches and mentors had to offer us, and it was a lot, because it came from a place of goodness and love. - This opportunity has already changed me so much but I cannot wait to see how much more I will grow and change to become the woman I've always dreamed of being. #inspiringmoments#filledtothebrim#feelingempowered
