Is your life a should? Mine used to be. Everything was done from a place of doing what I thought I should do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🚫What my mom said I should do⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🚫What my husband said I should do⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🚫What teachers said I should do⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But you know what I've learned? Doing what YOU want will make you a happy woman. And that should totally make you feel proud.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"Sports has always been an integral part of my life and it will remain a big part of who I am. In my youth I loved athletics and swimming. My mother spent countless hours by the poolside watching me and my brother do our thing. My turning point in sports was when I realised I can’t live a day without it. I was in 9th grade. A teacher of my school introduced me to long distance running. She and my swim coach in my early years from the Y, have been the biggest influencers in my life. I was lucky.
When I moved to Gurgaon from NYC (where I worked a corporate job) and exercised 8 days a week my daughters were little so in order to be around them more I started coaching - swimming and running. I managed to find a sweet spot and enough work. Soon the CrossFit bug got me so I got certified and enjoyed that. I expanded my business and also added a host of other fitness centric activities to my basket. I have done it all from setting up gyms, to training trainers, to running corporate gyms, to being a tough coach a motivator, a mentor - while keeping up with my training schedule.
I am now a single mom, doing my best for my girls. If I could choose any other profession, I would still choose to be who I am now. But I would have done it differently and sooner.
To destress I run, hangout with my kids, meet my friends and maybe plain dance all day at home. My message to youngsters all around is to embrace your dreams chase your passion and don’t worry if you don’t have one. Think of what fires you and chase that. Treat life as an adventure and keep ploughing through the highs and lows. You will be happier for it. Treat life as an adventure!! The bottom line is it is never too late to start something you have always had a passion for and always trust your gut- you’ve got it for a reason."

#selfcare is the new fad in everyone's mouth these days. To be honest my self care involves someone that the popular selfcare gurus don't talk about. That is #jesus there really isn't no point in taking care of your exterior but neglect your inner self.
Fitness is important, and so is eating healthy. But when they kids are in school, I take this time to tap into the well of #christ
This usually means worship music, sermons on podcast or a really inspiring audio book.
I take care of two little humans ALONE, that is why I must learn to also take care of me. Or who else will do it.
How's your #SelfCare going? Let me know in the comments. #mumblogger#mumof2#singlemom#singleparenthood

I’m just saying....🤷🏽♀️
Did it ever occur in your mind that you added value too? 🤔
Did you ever stop to think “Damn! I got a lot to offer!”
A lot of y’all got amnesia on what your worth and value is causing you to think you’ve lost not realizing it may have actually been more of your gain!
Stop thinking that being with them is an indication of how worthy you are and not being with them indicates how worthless you are.
Think about it: Why would you think you’re losing if they don’t want to be with you? If you ask me, you’re losing by staying somewhere that you’re not celebrated!
Never stay somewhere you don’t belong & never be anywhere that you’re only tolerated.
Remember: Sometimes the gain isn’t always staying attached to the relationship, the gain may come from detaching yourself from it!

My alarm went off this morning and I was like ‘ugh noooooooo’. I dragged my a** out of bed because I knew I had fitfam waiting for our virtual workout together and Monday sets the tone for the week!!! You will never regret getting up and working out 💪💪 happy Monday y’all. Be a beast today 🤗
Wish-making is a passive activity in which the wisher hands responsibility for the wish's achievement to an outside force—either Fate or destiny or luck.
Not that wish-makers don't also take action to achieve their desires—but if their desires remains wished for only, their drive to achieve them tends to encounter limits beyond which it will not go.
When you firmly resolve to accomplish something the experience is quite different than when you merely wish for it.
When you firmly resolve to accomplish something---even something you have no idea how to accomplish—you immediately become charged with the intent to act.
Ok so, I had been wondering why for the month of August, I didn't reach my fitness goals, NOW I SEE WHY! 😍🤣 I mean my birthday month was live! I lived large and in charge, LITERALLY!! I haven't had a drink all this month and I've already lost 4 pds! I think I'm on to something,😍😍🤣🤣🥂🥂🍸🍸
