Get To Know Me…

I want to share my journey with you! I also want to prove that when you’re ready, you can move mountains! This journey isn’t about getting “skinny”, it’s about finding the best version of myself and being happy. The scale doesn’t define me like it used to. The scale is only a component to my […]

I’m In A Bad Funk. I Fell Short!

My journey to get healthy and find the best version of myself started 12 weeks ago! (Well 11 week’s & 6 days to be exact.) I started this journey on a prayer! (And the fact that I was gonna die if I didn’t get it together!!) I knew I couldn’t do it alone. I started […]
