The Voice of Reason

…It took a while, now I understand just where I’m going. I know the world and I know who I am, it’s ’bout time I show it! I’m a grown woman… I can do whatever I want. –Beyonce

It’s been a looong time since I’ve posted… LOL for the past few months I’ve just stared at my wordpress app, with no words to express what I was feeling. With life, love, money, friends, and family it was like 1 step forward, then 10 steps back, but by the grace of God I’ve managed to push through all the madness.

Thank you God! I’m learning to trust God and not question God when He takes something (or someone) out of my world… No need to question what He’s been trying to tell/show me. I see now. I get it, I get it!

Sidebar: When life hands you lemons… you make lemonade… Or you kindly decline and say thanks, but no thanks and keep it pushing;)

I’ve heard no.
No you can’t.
It’s not your time.
You’re not ready.
Like I don’t deserve the happiness I’m pursuing.

I’ve heard it so much that it goes in one ear and out the other.

That voice in my head… Man that voice in my head is real loud though. It’s overpowering the naysayers and the haters.

That loud voice in my head is telling me

Yes you can!
It’s your time!
You’re ready!
You deserve this!!!!

That voice has been the driving force to my growth!

I’m so grateful for my blessing! My dreams are really becoming my reality, and I prayed/worked hard to get to this point in my life.

Don’t let ANYONE on the sidelines discourage you from getting to that light at the end of the tunnel.

Don’t let ANYONE tell you your dreams are unrealistic.

Keep it pushing, because misery loves company.

So, what is the voice in your head telling you?

God might be trying to tell you something.

Sidebar: I love that saying People may not tell you how they feel about you, but they will always show you.

I been calling bluffs and pulling cards all year long baby, so play your cards right…

Be safe and I hope you enjoy your 4th of July weekend!

God is LOVE

Whining about wine

Originally posted on Royal Pain Fitness:


Many of my clients ask if they can drink wine regularly while they are attempting to lose weight and get fit. We’re talking more than the occasional glass when you are out to dinner or celebrating a special occasion. This is 2-3 glasses every night. My answer is NO!
I hear whining in return about wine at least being healthier than hard alcohol and beer. While wine does offer health benefits there are things you must remember in order to not to let your wine consumption become a hindrance to your plan.

1. Not all wine offers health benefits. Stick to red wine if you want to get the perks.

2. Only 5 oz. is needed to get the benefits. Are you REALLY only drinking 5 oz? I didn’t think so

3. Alcohol can cause acid reflux so if you drink too much too close to bed time, you run…
