Actually, Maybe 2020 Was My Year

Uncategorized Dec 31, 2020
I'm exiting 2020 with a bold statement: 2020 WAS my year. It wasn't the year I imagined, but it was definitely my year.
 
I stood up for myself.
I outgrew certain people.
I grew closer to others.
I didn't reach my goals entirely but made progress on them.
I designed and published my journals.
I started to rebuild my brand and business.
I stopped blaming the 'rona as the reason and started looking at it as a season.
I recognized the stories that were holding me back.
I realized just how strong our marriage and family is.
I was reminded over and over again just how GOOD GOD IS even through the darkest storms.
 
2020 was the year I became FEARLESS. And I'll never forget it!

I Changed My Mindset and Lost 25 Pounds

mindset weight loss Oct 29, 2020

Oh the difference a year can make!

Last year I started doing something new- I started to believe in myself, MY process, MY success, MY potential. I stopped giving craps about what someone else was doing, what someone thought of me and started to focus on me. I started to look at what I wanted my life to look like, how I would commit to my own process and how I wouldn’t give up on a better life with more energy, confidence and less pain.

Turns out, I just needed to work on my mindset, emotional healing and work on eating when I was hungry and stopping when I was satisfied. I started to be intentional with planning my food. That’s it. I cut out the diet drama, stopped looking to the world to validate my existence, stopped obsessing over balance and started on the inside. I started coaching myself 

Yes you can lose weight without cutting food groups, a perfectly calculated meal plan, workouts that leaves you sore for days or cutting yourself down. Yesterday I ate a...

Failure Is a Part of the Change Process

behavior change Oct 29, 2020

When you think of failure, what are your thoughts?  Do you think of failure as a good thing or a bad thing?  

I used to look at failure as proof that I wasn't getting where I was going.  It was evidence that I'd use against myself to quit, give up and chase something else.  But failure is NOT evidence to stop.  It's evidence you are trying and learning what will work.

So quick reminder: 

When you're making a change in your behaviors and habits; failure, backtracking, and mess-ups are a normal part of the journey to creating consistent behaviors.  Life is never in a state of perfection, so it's normal to have a "cha-cha" with behavior change when you are faced with a challenge, learning a new habit, environment change or any other change in routine.  

What's amazing about the human spirit is our ability to adapt and overcome circumstances- even when it's hard.  Start small and do what you can.  It's better...

How to Support Yourself or a Loved One Through a Pregnancy Loss

Uncategorized Oct 29, 2020

I share lots of pictures with my adorable kids, but not everyone knows that we went through 4 miscarriages and a lot of tests to have our kids. Pregnancy loss can be traumatic and impact a woman's identity, self-image, and mental health (that said it can also impact men but this podcast I'm focusing on the perspective of women).

In this podcast I open up about our story and also how to support those going it. In the show notes you'll find lots of resources for articles, support groups and podcasts to help you <3.  See you there!

You can find the Becoming Fearlessly You Podcast (Formerly Lots to Lose Podcast) on all major Podcast platforms)
