25 minutes of ab intervals done! βœ”οΈ Crazy what can happen when you decide to do something, instead of just wanting to.
I knew I couldn’t let myself go just because I’m busy with school. My health would suffer, which would affect my focus, then affecting my grades and performance. It’s a cascading effect.

You’ve got to take care of yourself first in order to be functioning at 100%. It’s not easy and it’s not always convenient, but it will be worth it!

This week I’ve felt more energized and just better in general. I’ve had a more positive attitude and have still be able to keep up with everything.

I think the game changer was me not approach my health as, β€œI have to do this and it sucks because I have a million other things to do,” but more like, β€œI get to do this and my body appreciates that I am showing it some love for at least 25 minutes a day.” πŸ’•

Happy Friday friends!!! πŸ€—

Good nutrition doesn’t have to be complicated or take a long time to prepare.

Made an almond butter sandwich, superfoods shake, and grabbed a banana on my way out.
Simple and easy.

Today was a long day. Two exams later and I am exhausted. 😴

So blessed to have a job that allows me to go to school full time and only work when I want. πŸ’πŸ» I don’t have to worry about being put on a schedule or not being able to go to work because I have to study or have class. I don’t have to drive anywhere, which is great.

I make my own schedule!
And the best part, I’m getting paid to workout, be healthy, and become the best version of myself! πŸ€—

I also get to help other do the same and see their goals come to fruition!

It’s the best job ever!! Did I mention my team is always looking for women to join us?? We have a coach mentorship start soon and I want YOU to join us!
I never would have thought saying β€œYES!” to this opportunity would have led me to where I am now! I took a chance and now I can go to school and maintain my own business on my own terms.

And we just went international, starting in the U.K.!! πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ If you’re even just a little bit curious send me a message! I would love to chat! πŸ’• β€œCuriosity killed the cat. Satisfaction brought it back.” πŸ˜‰

Go out there and kick some Thursday booty! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ I know I will. On the schedule for today: two exams and a buttload of reading still to be done for tomorrow’s MCAT class. πŸ™ˆ

It’ll get done, so no point stressing about it.

Remember, whether you think you can do something or you can’t, you’re probably right... πŸ™„

Spaghetti squash and veggie chicken stir-fry is on the menu for today. 🍴 ... but all I want is a 🍩... can anyone relate? πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹πŸ» I noticed I’ve been using food as a comfort since I started school and I literally don’t have time to deal with the effects of poisoning my body with junk. So I’m making some changes, veggies it is. πŸ’πŸ»πŸ₯•πŸ— With a few cheats on the weekends... 😏
