On top of everything else... I deal with type 1 diabetes everyday. It’s easy to be silent about this but it’s life or death every day. It’s a battle nobody can see. No one can really understand what it’s like living with this disease unless you are the person living it or the parent taking care of a type one child. We are warriors.
I truly believe I was “blessed” with this disease for a reason and it has made me into the strong person I need to be. I am grateful for each day. I now have a greater purpose for helping others that struggle with this disease and any other health issues. Some of the hardest battles are the ones no one can see and not many will share.
Ya girl slept 25 hours out of the last 48 and is still sick 😔 I’ve been taking my vitamins, taking extra Vitamin C, getting plenty of sleep, getting nutrients and minerals, and had my flu shot but yet I’m still sick 🙃
What do y’all do to stay healthy doing the cold/flu season?!?!?
Y’all keep counting those #MACROS ( sarcasm) read below ⬇️⬇️⬇️
There are nearly 30 vitamins and minerals that your body cannot manufacture in sufficient amounts on its own are called "essential micronutrients." British sailors learned centuries ago that living for months without fresh fruits or vegetables—the main sources of vitamin C—caused the bleeding gums and listlessness of scurvy, a disease that often proved fatal. Even today in many low-income countries, people frequently suffer from a variety of nutrient-deficiency diseases.
True vitamin and mineral deficiencies—in which the lack of a single nutrient leads directly to a specific ailment—are rare in the United States because our extensive supply of inexpensive food, and the fortification of many common foods with some key nutrients. However, eating less than optimal amounts of important vitamins, minerals, and other compounds can still contribute to a number of major illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and osteoporosis.

The name peppermint comes from Greek mythology in the form of a love triangle. As in all Greek mythologies, there are many versions of the story. The most popular one states that Hades seduced the nymph, Minthe, and his wife, Persephone, became enraged with jealousy and turned Minthe into a plant that people would constantly walk on.
Outraged by his wife's interference, Hades imbued the plant with peppermint, so whenever the plant was crushed underneath footfalls, it would release a wonderful aroma. Hades hoped that by doing this, people would remember Minthe and recall how beautiful and full of life she had been. Persephone was furious over her husband's tampering, because Minthe's presence would forever linger in the air as a constant reminder of her presence. In another version, Persephone turned Minthe into peppermint (other versions state mint) as a way to save her from Hades's seduction.

When I graduated college, I had a job set up and ready for me. It felt great knowing that I would have a steady income while working a job in my field and gaining experience.
Then I started, and I absolutely hated it.
I won’t go on about why I was upset there, but it was draining me. So, I did what every responsible adult does and QUIT.
Yep. No job set up or anything, I just quit.
Going back to working my job from college was almost as discouraging as applying for different jobs.
I applied to 20 jobs a day, hardly received any correspondence, or would interview and get rejected. It was draining me as much as working that job I hated. It made me question myself and all the work I put in during college.
I recently received a job offer for an awesome company and it just so happens to be in my field. Starting a new job again will be scary, but I am looking forward to the new challenges, coworkers, and opportunities. 🤩💪🏽 So, if you’re going through a tough time, whatever that may be, here’s your sign to KEEP GOING!!!!! It will get better!!! Trust the process, friends! 🤘🏼
Ohhh happy #Friday! After learning some movements and switches this morning with the mace, I decided to rip the training wheels off and play around with some ideas that ran in my head 😅 still gotta touch up on some thangs but I figured I’d give a quick look at what I was doing lol Really good for the core and Turkish get ups are a really good full body exercise in itself. 💪🏾 .
Quick side note! If you’re interested in a complementary session shoot me an email or message me and let me know! Don’t wait until it’s too late to value your health. .
Time to shine the spotlight on the awesome #men that we have in our team! .
Jon Rogers is THRILLED that he said YES to my nutritional cleansing lifestyle!
Jon shares, "Here's my latest results. It's been 54 days from pic 1 to pic 3. Pic 2 was after 27 days. You wouldn't think that I'm actually heavier in the last pic. Dropping fat and building lean muscle is a win win!"💪
One of the things I just love about these and other #transformation pictures is the smile on everyones' face after they've been on my program.
Not only do people feel better and look their best, but they are so much happier. It’s priceless. ❤️
