HERE I AM! Same girl, different habits. Happy #TransformationTuesday! 

There I am on NYE 2012, 20lbs thicker! Since then I’ve gained a fro & shed a large percentage of my body fat and replaced it with muscle simply by adding more #cardio to my weekly routines (#Zumba 3Xs a week), plus #strengthtraining (2-3Xs a week). 

Many assume that my eating habits have changed too. The truth is, I choose to eat what I want but I #eatresponsibly. Meaning, I make sure I eat #fresh #BALANCEDmeals - I eat all of my veggies, always include a good source of protein, and I made water my go-to drink. Not to mention, for every poor “gotta have it” meal/snack, I designate a workout that will burn those calories away. Oh, & I cut back on the cocktails ๐Ÿ˜”.

Though I’m still a #workinprogress, I encourage you to fall in love with some kind of physical activity that matches your personality (mine is ZUMBA ๐Ÿ˜‰) & EAT RESPONSIBLY as if your health depends on it (because it does!). Be consistent, dedicated, and remain positive. #TakeCare

If there’s anything you need to know about me, it’s I jump for joy, I smile for relief, and I live my life freely & to the fullest.ย 

I AM WHO I AM. I DO WHAT I WANT.

Took this pic on the 29th for a booking submission to prove to the agent that I AM in the shape that I said I’m in. I post this pic today to hopefully prove to you that being dedicated to your HEALTH produces #results. Though the hardest part of leading a #Healthy & #Fit lifestyle is starting, remember, the hardest part after that is stopping. #persevere #livewell #leadwell #doitforyourself #instafit #motivation ๐Ÿ’ช

Today, May 28th 2014 marks the 1 year home going anniversary of my beloved Grandma, Mary Ella Reese, and the home going of the world’s “Phenomenal Woman”, Dr. Maya Angelou. I thank God for both of these remarkable women as they shared a common strength and wisdom that has inspired me over the years to become the woman I am today.

THANK YOU…both of you ๐Ÿ’•


Forever missed. Forever an inspiration. Forever Phenomenal Women.

Love you, Grandma! Rest in Peace, Ms. Maya!
