One of the things I’ve been feeling (and embracing) is fear and vulnerability. When I sat down to write out the launch of the Cultivating Calm Community, I felt really vulnerable 🌟 This is the first time I’m creating a membership offer and my old habit behaviour of self doubt started to rise: What if it failed? What if I’m not good enough to offer this? What if it isn’t perfect?
The before-mindfulness Victoria would have spent weeks going down this rabbit hole of self doubt and perfectionism. The practicing-mindfulness Victoria only spent a few hours in this space 😉 Mindfulness is a life time practice and with this practice I’m recognizing fear for what it is: a protection mechanism for when I move into uncomfortable and unfamiliar places.
Vulnerability isn’t a “bad” thing 💛 Being vulnerable in creating this new offer to serve the community is allowing me to practice trust, to change my relationship with the word “fail”, and to be authentic in how I want to connect and share the practice.
Embracing vulnerability is one of the (many) ways this practice has changed my life and through the Cultivating Calm Community, I can’t wait to share more experiences, mindful tools and resources on how living mindfully can also support you in transforming strong emotions.

Gostaria de compartilhar com vocês a minha evolução... O primeiro ponto é:
A BARIÁTRICA MUDOU A MINHA VIDA! 🦋
Estava me recordando de quando eu decidi que eu precisava realmente recorrer a esse método... Pra quem chegou agora, e não sabe como cheguei a esse peso, vou fazer um breve resumo: Passei um momento muito difícil de luto, no qual demorei muito para superar, minha mente enfraqueceu tanto que refletiu no meu corpo... Com todo peso que ganhei, comecei a sentir muitas dores na lombar e joelhos, cada andada na rua, eu procurava um banco pra sentar, pois minha lombar ardia de tanta dor por causa do peso!
Tentei MAIS UMA nova dieta, exercícios, emagrecia 10/15/20 kg, mas se eu vacilasse um final de semana, engordava 5/10 kg, e isso me desmotivava muito... Era um ciclo muito cansativo e caro, pois eu estava sempre tomando remédios para emagrecer e me esforçando ao máximo!
Se vocês observarem no histórico das minhas fotos, verão que em um momento da minha vida atingi um corpo bonito e malhado.
Quando comecei o tratamento com a equipe multidisciplinar, principalmente com a psicóloga, eu comecei a entender tudo o que se passava comigo e que a forma de me cuidar estava errada, pois eu tinha uma doença, e não eram remédios emagrecedores que iriam me curar, e por isso eu sempre engordava mais e mais!
Mas a bariátrica não é mágica, ela requer um cuidado multidisciplinar, afinal, q obesidade é uma doença incurável, por isso, deve ser tratada da forma correta!
E querem saber?
Sou muito feliz por terem inventado essa cirurgia!

We invite you to join us Thursday June 11th at noon for a free webinar called “Small Space, Big Goals!” that’s especially for aerial performers.
"Close your eyes and take a moment to calm your mind into a relaxed and peaceful state.⠀
Search your heart and ask yourself, “Do I have a desire for significance?” Often, we have not acknowledged that desire to ourselves because it has felt wrong or prideful.⠀
Then ask Jesus, “Are there any places I have been looking for significance in external things?” If you get the sense the answer is “Yes,” begin to ask where. “What are the things I have been using to prove my worth?”⠀
As things come to mind, picture yourself laying them down at the feet of Jesus as you repent. “Jesus, forgive me for using this to build my significance.” Then say, “Jesus, I give You all these things I have used to build my own greatness. As I hand them to You, what do You have for me in return?”⠀
Then begin to ask Jesus, “How am I significant to You? What do You say about me? What is the greatness that is on my life?’⠀
Take the time to soak in the answers, let them impact your heart, and write them down. .⠀
Make it a daily practice to go back to that place with Jesus, reviewing the truth or allowing Him to speak it freshly to your heart. Build the reservoir of truth that will train your mind and your heart to embrace your identity as His child. .⠀
Ask Jesus to show you specific ways you can start to live out the truth of your significance in your current circumstances.⠀
We are almost done with chapter 3 and 4 this week! Join us for the Facebook Live tomorrow at 5pm!⠀

Seriously can we just talk about how amazing this looks?!??? 🤤🤤 Would you believe me if I told you this is all veggies and protein for the most part?!? 🥬
Yup! Cauliflower rice, chicken breast cooked in the air fryer, and a salad! It’s so amazing how much you can do with veggies that’s why they are my absolute FAVE.
I’ve been really dialing into my nutrition because one big lesson I’ve learned is if you Kinda sorta put the effort in your diet and exercises, your going to kinda sorta get the results! And I want the full results of everything I do.
What’s everyone else eating for dinner?! 🤩

The moon symbolises our feminine, yin, rhythmic, cyclic energy ⋅⦁⚫︎●⚫︎⦁⋅ The biorhythms of the body, the unconscious & subconscious parts of us, our emotional body our energetic bodies. Like the feminine menstrual cycle, similar to that on average of the moon cycle in days, goes through its stages of building up & breaking down, akin to the moon as it go through its phases 〰️
Our emotions (energy-in-motion) also go through phases, serving as flags of communication. Indicating to us opportunities for us to learn & grow from. They are dynamic processes, feeling states that fluctuate. Impermanent like each phase of the moon.
As Buddhist Nun: Pema Chödrön says:
"Feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear… are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They’re like messengers that tell us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck"
All emotions and their full spectrum of expression are helpful. Sorrow, discomfort, conflict, depression, anxiety… are all paths to growth & change. Better expressed, felt, explored to then let their motion out of you field than supressed, stored & stuck within.
You get what you focus on consistently. This statement is all you need to know in order to create the life of your dreams. Step 1, pay attention to your thoughts.

My Comfort Zone & Thriving... It took me many months to realize, that for me, pushing myself out of my comfort zone regarding how I manage money was actually me pushing myself out of thriving and back into surviving... Growing up there was a constant scarcity of money. That scarcity poured over into scarcity for basic needs like food and clothing. I started receiving my first paycheck at age 8 and providing for some of my basic needs such as food, snacks, clothing and school supplies at age 14.
Generating income was a part of my survival.
I went to school full time and worked full time. After college, I worked two jobs, even with my first professional career role. I worked two jobs when I lived in Illinois. When I lived on the East Coast, I had two professional careers I was working to afford to live. When I lived in Florida, even as a former six figure earner in Corporate America I was in survival mode making sure I paid off all of my debts so I never owed any person or institution any money.
It was one of my vulnerabilities that got "tapped into" by my ex - causing massive pain and even more traumas around money.
When I decided to "Surrender to God" last fall and leave Corporate America...I was doing everything I could to Trust in God, Have Faith, Surrender and know that I was going to be provided for.
Telling myself these stories, as well as other fairy tales, to keep myself moving forward. The reality was - under the stories of trusting in the Lord and other fairy tales - I was scared and I pushed myself from a place of THRIVING back into a place of SURVIVING.
Using the stories as a form of denial and this trauma response of - It's ok. I am ok. It's all good here.
Because I had allowed myself to belief that I had "Limited Belief" that I was sitting in the comfort zone of Corporate America and not pushing myself outside of that comfort zone.
For me, money equals freedom and safety. It was because of my income and the security that I had - that I could... Excerpt from my latest blog post found here:
Is anyone else a recovering perfectionist?
If you are, you are in good company because I am a recovering perfectionist, too.
Basically what that means is...
I demand an unfairly high expectation from everyone and everything, including myself. So, during my wellness journey I would frequently join a program, do it 100% perfect for like a month or just a few weeks, and then something would come up and I would basically fall off the wagon.
That was very detrimental to my progress for a VERY long time.
Because instead of just being kind to myself and forgiving myself for taking a day off and giving myself some grace in my program, I was either all in, or all out. It had to be one or the other, but not both.
It took me the longest time to learn how to overcome that mentality.
I am trying to work on being less of a perfectionist. I’m working on letting go of this idea that perfection will get me to where I want to be, because it actually will not.
That is the beauty of this human journey!
So now, I give myself flexibility in my diet. I give myself days off from working out. And through that, I am healthier than I've ever been in my life.
So if you're also a recovering perfectionist and do things like stop and start fitness journeys because you let yourself down or you feel like you aren't making progress because of this sort of cyclical perfectionistic style, you're not alone.
You have to give yourself some grace, kindness, and forgiveness.
And I know this all sounds great, but it's very difficult to learn. It honestly took me years.
So give yourself time to learn that and be okay with some flexibility because that is the beauty of being a human. We can adjust, evolve, and learn. And basically, through that process, become our best versions of ourselves…perfectly imperfect.

The transforming, healing powers of tattoos. "A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl."

HIIT OUTDOOR LEG DAY🔥
Want a challenging workout but don’t wan to bring all your fitness equipment outside?!
Then here is a routine you can try on your next leg day using just an assisted pull up resistance band! I purchased my band on Amazon for about 20 bucks!
Let’s keep them gains coming for the summer! No excuses💪🏽
• Forward jumping squats to reverse crab walk
• Static sprints
• Lateral crab walks
• Lateral lunges
30 sec each, 5 rounds! Let’s go🔥
The darkness births light ✨ Healers go through a deep and personal transformation, a grueling evolution. Healing is painful and uncomfortable. Going deep and shedding layers of what no longer serves us, kicking up shit that we have to process through. Removing all of the outside noises and getting quiet and sitting with ourselves and tuning into our spiritual hearts. Only then can we start to turn the light on and light the way for others. But the process of healing can feel like pure torture when you are in it, it is ugly and beautiful at the same time. It is an ongoing, lifelong commitment to heal your traumas, your conditioning, your anxieties, your mind, body and soul. It is not for the faintest of hearts. Healers are strong and have been through some real shit and won’t judge you of your shit. Healers are real people, they are you, they are me. Emerging from the darkness shining light so brightly calling in our people to transform the world, one internal landscape at a time.
What’s so awesome about this side hustle is that not only do I get to work on my own health but I have the opportunity to inspire others to do the same.
I started coaching because I watched my coach find a happiness through bettering herself. I wanted that. Once I got that for myself I wanted nothing but to share this with others so they could also enjoy what I have.
I quickly learned that coaching held me accountable for the important things - like personal development. Filling my mind with positivity and great knowledge. It’s held me accountable for my nutrition and lastly accountable for my fitness.
I will show up because it’s for me and it’s for you too! I want you to realize that you 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐞 to show up for yourself.
I hope that with watching me I will inspire you to join me.

“THIS IS THE TIME OF THE FIERCE FEMININE. We need to own and embody this when She is needed.” Words from my original Dakini Teacher, Lama Tsultrim Allione. I had the great fortune to hear her live this week with a teaching for our current global times. *This was the topic of my Kali Yuga Konversation today via my FB page at Tenley Wallace*
Ancient Yogic traditions from both India and Tibet understand the essential nature and value of the Boundlessly Compassionate and Untamably Fierce Feminine. She is at the foundation and heart in each of these timeless Wisdom lineages.
Her Sanskrit translations:
Kali meaning both Black & Time.
In India, She is called “Kali Maa.” Maa = Great Mother
In Tibet, She is “Khrodi Kali.” Khrodi = Female Wrathful Deity. (Depicted in photo here)
As a lover and student of both of these Wisdom streams, I have learned how to constructively use these powerful feminine energies. Before then, those characteristics in me were not developed or matured, thus created havoc in many areas of my life. Now they are polished and extremely powerful, creating great benefit for myself and others.
All beings have both feminine and masculine energies within, Universal Forces that are the pulse of all life. "How to develop these," you may ask?
Teachings: reliable, tried & true
Teacher: reputable, compassionate, fearless
Community Allies: consistent, sharing same practices & goals
In Buddhism called Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.
For any true discipline with the power to tame the mind and awaken our innate power, these 3 Keys are required.
You may wonder where to find these. Here you go. Designed specifically for the modern women and our unprecedented and unpredictable times…
THE TIME OF THE FIERCE FEMININE ~ "KALI YUGA"
It’s all laid out for you here. Link in bio. Immersion and various 4 week class series begin next week.
My heart & soul polished and delivered to you personally.
I made this ring today using 100% recycled silver from my own scrap. Swipe right to see some of the process, and let me know what you think of the voice over on the first video 😅. The experience of recycling my scrap metal and creating the exact sheet I need for upcoming projects felt so good. I feel that my agency is only increased more and more as I continue to learn each step involved in metalsmithing and jewelry crafting. I can have that much more control over each element, and work to bring my intention into each step. While I journey towards learning every step of this process I am exploring how I can innovate in everything that I am doing. I am peeling back the layers one day at a time, looking for that juicy juicy center. .
As a disclaimer, I have always recycled my scrap. In the past I have used Riogrande’s recycling service. Also, shouts out to Abbey at @thehotspotgr for walking me through this process and being patient with me as I poured molten metal onto her table over and over 😂😂😂😅 Thank you all for looking, sharing and supporting, and don’t forget to check out the voice over on the video! Big love. @emulatedartifacts#emulatedartifacts#handmade#silversmith#metalsmith#recycle#reuse#remake#transform#fire#saw#jewelry#silver
Today I am thankful that I have a diet that allows me to eat what I would like and have some cheat meals.
Although, I typically try to focus on what I eat during the week, I was not going to miss out on #nationalburgerday !
Burgers are one of my favorite foods so of course I decided to indulge😂
What are you thankful for today?
Guess who’s finally going back to work!!!!!
I’m so happy...regardless of how you feel about the whole situation it’s put the small businesses to the test. It has sank so many businesses. Even going back the restrictions on us will put these businesses under. Im working 72 hour work weeks for the same money I worked 40 hours for. Like any trying time in life I’ve taken some lessons away from all this
I have learned how strong and faithful my clientele is. It makes me proud to know that I’m responsible for such a great customer base. It is the environment and trust I’ve built with each and every person that has me going back into this strong and busy.
I’m scared shitless of what the future may bring and losing everything I’ve put my life into but I can only control what’s in my control.
I’ll be more prepared and yes I will have to make some hard business decisions but I will not feel helpless again to someone else’s decisions
See you all at 4 or 5 am...no more sleeping for this gal
New business cards are here! And uniforms are in their way. I’ve picked up a beautiful hand made plant stand for my seedling propagation work and a work bench is being picked up on Saturday. Also on the way is a small greenhouse. So much excitement, so much joy, so much greeeeeeen!!
Does money buy you happiness? We think it first starts with defining what happiness means to you, and understanding your beliefs around money! 🤑

Change is inevitable. ⠀
Everything changes. ⠀
Once I learned to stop resisting and come from a more powerful place of acceptance, life has gotten easier, more fun, more peaceful. ⠀
That is why after 6 years in business, I am making some big changes. Mainly because so much has shifted for me personally. I’m excited about the new projects I have in the works so that I can reach and help as many dogs as I can. ⠀
Stay tuned. 💓

Having my 1st cycle back after nursing Maddie reminded me of my journey over the past 6 years. .
I look back on it and realize that my kids were really what changed it all for me... the introduction of macros brought be also into the weight training world and basically the adoption of that over excessive cardio type workouts. This combination has brought me more balance than ever! .
Photo on the left: I had just had my 1st daughter Avery and was in a restrictive place with my intake and exercise. For over 5 years prior to getting pregnant, I did not regularly menstruate. I ate many nutrient dense foods but not ENOUGH for my expenditure—because I really had no idea what that was. Pretty much swore off all carbs during this time except for fruit and veggies. .
Actually, my husband took this 📷 because he was worried. I remember being defensive saying that “I had just had a 3 oz chicken breast.” I went by “said generalizations” instead of understanding what my body actually needed. (Come to find out after I learned macros, I probably needed double this portion) .
I felt I needed excessive cardio along with my daily boot camp class. All of this led to me losing my breast milk supply and being devastated. This began a shift- realizing that my actions did not just affect me! .
Photo on the right; .
This has been 6 YEARS in the making with a two more babies in between. It honestly began with the intro of macros and realizing I needed more overall calories at that time and that carbs were not the 👿 ! I remember re-introducing oatmeal for breakfast with my eggs was a big step 😏. .
My goals also started to shift. I wanted to live a life that was more flexible! There are no food groups that I deem off limits. I have the knowledge and power to choose. .
My goal in my workouts is no longer to burn as many calories as possible, but to see how much stronger I can get with progressive overload and SMART training. Programming by @bretcontreras1 : 5-6 days a week of weights (3 lower body/2-3 upper body) With daily steps because- I love them and its a great way to be outside ☀️ with my girls and also increase daily movement. ⬇️

Discover the power inside yourself. Feel the energy flowing through you. Embrace every single bit of that energy, flow with it.
I am passionate human being and the little things in life excites me. I am discovering my energy and I am starting to embrace it. And wow, it is incredible...
Find your passion and focus on that. Let that be your drive, let that be what excites you...🌻 Keep on working...
🦁 Experience breeds a different type of beast.
😭 Do you find yourself in all the pity party feels? Perhaps your inner voice sounds like this:
🤦♀️I’m so lost.
🤷♀️Help?! Idk where tf to start?!
🙋🏼♀️I really need to leave my comfort zone.
💜If someone could teach me their ways.
👸I need someone supportive of my goals.
💖If I could just start taking care of myself more I could be so much better of a person, friend, spouse, mother, the list goes on.
🚫You might feel an extreme lack of energy right now, wondering if you will ever be excited to get out of bed in the morning.
🙏🏽Dreaming of having the energy and confidence to have a happier attitude at home, more successful days ahead at work, or wearing more confidence going head on into a date with your crush.
✌🏽 If you let go of those darn limiting beliefs and made the right investments back into yourself, you would probably wake up as the enhanced you 2.0 you keep dreaming about.
📣 Lemme tell you girl...
There’s a better way then guessing.
There’s a smarter way to expedite your goals. Don’t go into a full blown health & fitness journey blindly wishing for the best.
Luck alone won’t bring forth results.
The right support systems will.
The proper customized plans designed with you and you only will.
Long term healthy life habits setting you up for a mind, body and soul you’re proud of will.
😴 If this reasoned with you and you’re exhausted of the trial and error game. Reach out I’m literally one DM away girlfriend, what in the heck are you waiting for?
💕P.S. I really do only have a few limited spots available for the next 3 months so don’t wait on your transformation. Summer is around the corner! I offer unlimited support to my clients, which is why they are seeing results. Your goals become my own. Let’s get on the Fitter Formula for Life Plan when you’re ready to take real action. I look forward to chatting with you soon babe.
Not your typical transformation post, but it’s important.
Last year, I spent 10 months out of 12 in a caloric deficit by way of low calories and lots of intensive training and cardio. To the tune of 2 or more hours per day. It was intentional and centered around a specific goal, but not sustainable or healthy as a way of life. Perks? I was vascular 24/7, a size 0 jeans, could run stair sprint intervals for 40 minutes with ease, ran the fastest I’ve ever been able to run, and overall had the best cardiovascular endurance of my life. BUT, there are definitely negative aspects. Strength PR’s didn’t happen. Low cals don’t afford much energy to lift real heavy. I didn’t have the energy to do much aside from gym, food prep, and work. I slept a LOT. My cycle was non existent for about a year. I was HANGRY AF most days. *Ladies, pssttt… your sex drive goes down the tubes when you’re this lean* Hormones are all over the place so some days I’d feel like a curmudgeon and others I’d feel like a badass. Don’t get me wrong. I love this physique and the purpose that it serves.
This is me the majority of the time. I’m an athlete. I’m a busy mom of 4 who owns an online coaching and training business. I’m someone who loves to go out to eat with family and friends, have a cold beer at the lake, or eat a hot dog at a baseball game in the summer. I train my ass off, to the tune of 1.5 -2 hours every day. Not because I have to. Because I want to. I’m constantly working towards growth both mentally and physically, and as someone who suffers from anxiety, SAD, and PTSD, the gym is my outlet. It’s my sanity. I eat whole foods 85% of the time, but enjoy the hell out of that other 15%. My jeans are a 4, not a 0. I squat 200 lbs. and can OH press the 40’s. I struggle with body dysmorphia and poor self talk, just like everyone else.
I love both physiques for what they are and what they can do. But by far, this current shape has been the most fun to build and sculpt.
Also, for those ladies (me included) that are consumed by the scale, I was over 130 in the pic on the left. I’m 5’6” for reference. And I’ll let you guess what my current weight is.😉 #transformation
