Sneak peak of my new piece! Sooooo many layers left to go 🤪
For those that have messaged me about my process....
I take lots of photos and mix them into collages with #photoshop or #procreate . I choose objects or combinations related to my subject to create a story. Then I create prints on archival #artpaper and heavily alter and embellish the image with pen and ink, acrylic paint, and neon silk screen paint. A LOT of hand work goes into each print so copies of the same piece are all very unique. Hope everyone enjoys!
I’ll be putting prints up for sale on Etsy or society6 soon, but for now you can 💛DM for prints 💛
Finally feeling well enough to work out after an annoying cold for a week and a half. Decided to try one of the new @shaunt#Transform20 test workouts and HOLY HELL! 😳. I’ve already committed to a group of kickass ladies that I’ll be going ALL IN once the full program is released and all I can think right now is WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO?! 🥵🥵🥵. #bringit
Your fitness journey is just that....YOUR fitness journey.
It doesn’t matter that the woman next to you can squat 200 and you’re doing 100.
It doesn’t matter that you ONLY lost 5 lbs when Sarah from church lost 10.
Did you push harder today than you did yesterday?? Are you better today than what you were last week?? Are you still showing up for YOURSELF EVERY DAY?? THAT IS WHAT MATTERS HONEY!
Stop comparing yourself to everyone around you. Focus on what you can control and that’s your health and fitness.
Am I the skinniest chick on my fitness team - pssshhh hecckkk nawwww!! But guess what?? I still push play every day on my workouts because it’s MY journey. Not theirs. I compare myself to who I was a year ago and let me tell you - this picture 👇🏻 shows what showing up for yourself can do. It shows a woman that is confident and healthy!
What are your values? What sets your soul on fire? Commitment, honesty, resilience, empathy, justice, compassion, integrity? Take some time to sit down & discover them. We are put on this planet to share connection & impact each other in whatever way you were called to do. Expand on that & step out of your comfort zone - do something new you never thought you’d do. Never forget your worthiness is not based on the external job, degree, & amount of money you make. Those things may be important yes - but without your passion & individuality, who would you be? That’s our driving force, the core values make you, you. We are all individually unique. Practice living your beliefs, not only speaking them. Get involved & step outside of yourself to use your gifts & leave your imprint. Once those connections are made - you are energetically connected in those moments forever, they always exist. We are all a continual work in progress & I have faith that we all have the ability to restore hope in humanity & see the light in all of the darkest days. remember, those who cast judgment on you for being who you are - are at completely different phases in their life - don’t take it personally. Stand firm in your values, be authentic, rise above & most importantly, lead by example. #workinprogress#spiritualjourney#corevalues#dbt#mentalhealthawareness#inwardjourney#bepatient#authenticity#differentisbeautiful
My number one question “where did all the loose skin go?” 👉 Still there.
This is not the body I wanted after being 2 pounds away from reaching my goal weight of 135 pounds. It’s really not. BUT I would take this body over my 230 pound body ANY DAY. Risks of my loose skin - none. Risks of obesity? Early end of life, high blood pressure, pregnancy complications, heart disease, breathing difficulties, harder time getting around and more. Why would you ever let loose skin discourage you from becoming healthy? Forget about how it looks - do it for your health. Maximize your time on this planet. Do it for your kids, do it for your family, DO IT FOR YOU!
