First Day Of BeachBody

After a lot of prayers, conversations and guidance I have decided to become a BeachBody coach!! I wanted to become one because I have struggled with food, working out, thinking how society wants me to look. I have been on this rollercoaster for about 3 years or so. I have seen what it did to me not just physically but also mentally. I became a coach because I wanted to be able to relate to my clients and know where they sat I also sat. I am a firm believer of walk the walk talk the talk. I want to be that honest coach and knows how it feels for their clients.

I have struggled with all of the fad diets, working out, and it only lasting 6 weeks. I wanted something that I can maintain for the rest of my life and be HEALTHY. My goal is for me to have a healthy relationship with food and be healthy and can still eat Chick Fl A and not feel guilty about it. I feel so much better that I have a workout routine to follow and there is structure in my life.

I want to be HEALTHY whatever that looks like to you! God didn’t create me to be a size 2 I am not expecting me to be one however society expects that. There is one size fits all! I am so thankful that I have found something that makes me feel healthier and I am not alone in this!! I can’t wait to bring y’all on this adventure and see you updated!!! Remember YOU CAN DO THIS

Friday Q&A: Talking About Relationships part one.

Happy rainy and snowy Friday I can’t believe its snowing in April but again its New England nothing surprises me anymore!! I am almost done with school countdown is on! I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. XX

If you know me you know I was in a horrible relationship at the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020. I have been asked by a lot of you how I knew it was bad, how did I get myself out of it. If I can be the person to tell you don’t make the same mistakes I did then my job is done. I wish someone told me at the moment I needed to get out. I am healed and I able to talk about it without emotion. We all have been in that bad relationship so I am thankful you guys asked how I got out of it.

1. How Long were you and you’re ex together ?

Thats a loaded answer we were together the first time, yes I said the first time from September 2019-December 2019. We were trying to get back together from March-July of 2020 and that didn’t work out. To answer your question we were together for a total of 6 months.

2. Did you know you were in a toxic relationship ?

In the beginning of the relationship I didn’t know I was until probably 2 months into it I started noticing signs.

3. What made you realize you were in a toxic relationship ?

I saw signs that weren’t normal and my friends and family who are super close to me kept making comments and things weren’t adding up.

4. How did you get yourself out of it ?

I got myself out of it through strength and prayer to be completely honest.

5. What bible verse did you clung onto during this time ?

I really clung onto Philippians 4:13-  I can do all this through him who gives me strength. This was what got me through the darkest time.

6. Was there a song that gave you clarity?

Yes there was a song that gave me clarity during this time it was Sara Evans A Little Bit Stronger I remember waking up to that song on 92.5 and just knowing that I needed to let go.

7. Did you ever think there was a way out ?

If I am being completely honest yes I knew there was a way out but I didn’t know what the way out was and I am a firm believer of everything happens for a reason.

8. How did you recover/heal ?

I started doing things for myself it was the small things. I started gaining my independence back, but I couldn’t have done it with my friends, family and God and prayer really helped me through.

9. What is one thing/quality you look for in a guy ?

One thing I look for in a guy would be humor and how he handles stressful situations because that says something about his character. A quality I look for in a guy is how strong his faith is and how he responds too hard things.

10. Are you scared to date again?

I’m not necessarily scared to date again. I just want to date with intent of marriage so guarding my heart is a huge thing for me.

Lets Talk About Encouraging Others…

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I have been so busy with school and work and finishing out the semester! Only 4 weeks left but who’s counting at this point! I think we all need a little bit of Encouragement right now I know I do! I really want to talk about EncourageHer Clothing… I am someone who loves encouraging others and I want to talk about the real reason why I joined EncourageHer…
 
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? - Psalm 27:1

If you have been following me for awhile you know I love EncourageHer clothing. I want to talk about how important it is to encourage others and EncourageHer 😉 When my cousin was leaving for the military I knew I needed to be his encourager and be the strong one! We all know someone who is our encourager whether it’s a teammate, coach, mentor, friend, parent!!

I am so blessed that God gave a group of women who I can Encourage and they can Encourage me!! I’m the youngest promotHer for the brand I look at these ladies as my mentors and my sisters in Christ.

People ask me all the time you have a blog and you always talk about others and never yourself why is that? Truth be told its not for me its for YOU! I have always be the encourager for everyone I have friends that call me just so I can encourage them and tell them YOU CAN!! Being a Promother isn’t just me posting an Insta pic on my story and saying use my code, its more than just that its about supporting women and the fact that we all have the common ground of FAITH makes it so much better!! Your probably thinking this sounds good but why…

If I didn’t think I wanted to encourage others I wouldn’t have gone on a podcast to talk about a hard thing and talk about my eye!! Through this journey I have and will always remain Humble & Kind!! Lets talk about THE REAL REASON why I love EncourageHer…

First I love the Message I love how each shirt has a saying and there is a piece of encouragement wherever your going. Second I love how affordable the pieces are and the quality of them!! I also love how I get to Encourage others because its not always about ME!!! I love how EncourageHer is a big part of my life and I get to share it with YOU!!

When I first joined EncourageHer I was shy timid nervous scared etc… They Encouraged me to be myself and the moment I joined I have had the best conversations and I have had the opportunity to be encouraged and I will forever be grateful for this community!! Do yourself a favor and think about how YOU can encourage others & remember WALK BY FAITH NOT BY SIGHT!! YOU CAN DO THIS I KNOW YOU CAN

Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.- 1 Corinthians 16:13

Exciting Things Are Happening…

Happy Monday Everyone! It’s crazy to think that Easter is this week and you know that I am enjoying this weather!! I am so excited that I was offered to do a podcast for EncourageHer… If you have been following me from the beginning, then you know that I became a Brand Ambassador for the brand and you know what I am talking about! If you are new here then welcome I will tell you a little bit about this brand. EncourageHer is a faith based women athletic clothing company that encourages other women through quotes!

EncourageHer reached out to me to talk about a “Hard Thing” for the series “You Can Do Hard Things”, we all have dealt with and are continuing to deal with certain things whether its a nasty breakup, losing a family member/friend etc… I started thinking what I wanted to talk about I didn’t want to talk about your typical high school breakup or something that is only temporary. I wanted to talk about something that I continue to deal with till the day I die!

If you know me you know my right eye is slightly closed and surgeries have been in my vocabulary since I was three and I just had a recent procedure this past January! I wanted to talk about something that I continue to deal with day in and day out and I wanted to Encourage Others 😉. Nobody is perfect but my platform isn’t always about me its about Encouraging others and reminding you that Faith is Greater than Fear and I am so excited to be on this Podcast for EncourageHer!!

Check out my Instagram for when the Podcast goes live I hope everyone has a wonderful week and remember Encourage Each Other 🙂

I’m Back!!

Happy Monday everyone!! I know I’ve been a little MIA last week but thats college life and I am so happy its in the 60s today!! I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the Spring weather. A lot has been happening in my life and I needed to figure some stuff out but hey thats life right!

A lot of you have been asking me about life and how I keep myself motivated when there is warm weather and only 7 weeks left of the semester! Truth be told my grades keep me motivated and knowing that as soon as I finish I get to head North to Maine and spend time up there! As for the warm weather it motivates me because I can work outside and be in the sun!! We are at the half way mark and I am starting to count down the weeks and assignments as I am getting them turned in!! As for goals my goal for this week is go to the gym everyday and push myself a little harder each day!!

Pretty soon in the next 2 weeks fingers crossed depending on school and papers but if I get all of my work done then I will be heading to my happy place and be able to escape! I am so grateful to be able to have an escape for a few days and enjoy breathing in the fresh air and take in the sun!!!

Whatever your goals are for this week remember to dig deep and nothing is impossible!!

TALKING ABOUT ALL THINGS AMERICAN, FREEDOM, & VETERANS

“Because of the brave, it’s the land of the free” from Ryan Weaver’s “That’s What America Means to Me.”

I am so excited to have a Country Music Artist & former Army Black Hawk Pilot on the blog! I want to introduce you to Mr. Ryan Weaver! 

Ryan Weaver is a high-energy, all-American, rockin’ country music artist who proudly served as a Black Hawk Helicopter Aviator, Chief Warrant Officer 3, in the United States Army! He loves AMERICA JUST LIKE ME! In 2017, Ryan was announced as the Patriotic Voice of the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) for their Celebrate America Campaign at the 2017 PBR World Finals at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2018 and 2019, Ryan toured across the U.S. and internationally to Australia with the PBR.

In 2019 he released 2 singles called Arrival in March and Time Like This in July. Ryan became a brand partner for Lane Boots in the spring of 2019. Ryan also became an official brand partner for Liberty Home Concealment “Heroes” line in August of 2019. In 2018 Ryan released EP Celebrate America along with a very patriotic music video for the single “Never Forgotten” to honor America’s fallen Military, Law Enforcement and First Responders. He appeared twice on The Huckabee Show on TBN May 19, 2018 and August 18, 2018. Ryan became an official endorsing artist and brand partner for Nine Line Apparel, and has since moved to Lima Charlie Clothing Company.

George Jones: 2006

MLB (Kansas City Royals)AFL (Tampa Thunder) PIFLMultiple NCAA sports, including West Point Football, Vanderbilt Soccer and Baseball he sang the National Anthem at all of these events. 

I really need to talk about Ryan Weaver and who he is as a person! Ryan is not like any other country artist in country music today. He grew up with a family of eleven in a small town in Floral City, Florida, he joined the Army right after high school. After several years of working as a Military Intelligence Analyst, he followed in the footsteps of his two older brothers, Steve and Aaron, by attending Warrant Officer Candidate School and flight school. He graduated top of his class in flight school, becoming a Black Hawk Aviator. In April 2003, he deployed to Baghdad International Airport in Iraq. Shortly after, one of his brothers, Aaron, was deployed just west of him in Fallujah.

On January 8, 2004 Ryan’s life will never be the same and his world turned upside down. His brother Aaron was killed in action when the Medivac helicopter he was a passenger in was shot down by enemy fire. Ryan certainly understood mortality and the risks of combat…  After all, Aaron had survived the bloody 1993 battle in Mogadishu, Somalia – the same battle that became the basis for the movie, Black Hawk Down. When Aaron died, however, something changed for Ryan. He returned from combat, taking a new position training the next generation of Army aviators and officers at Fort Rucker, Alabama. Ryan has not piloted a Black Hawk since that fateful day. 

On December 17, 2013 Ryan’s brother-in-law, Chief Warrant Officer 2 Randy Billings, was killed in action in Afghanistan when the Black Hawk helicopter he was piloting was shot down by an enemy ground-detonated explosive device.  This second heartbreaking loss made the Weaver family a two-time Gold Star family. Both of his brothers’ ultimate sacrifices continue to fuel Ryan’s fire to accomplish his dreams in music.

In late 2016, Ryan released the music video for his single “Burn,” featuring Kris “Tanto” Paranto and John “Tig” Tiegen from the movie 13 Hours: Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. “Burn” aired nationwide on The Country Network and Heartland, and internationally at over 5,000 retailers, restaurants, and entertainment venues throughout the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017. Ryan’s first music video “Crank It” played nationally on ZUUS Country TV and TNN/Heartland Network and spent 8 weeks on their Top 10 Video Countdown – a network record.In 2017, Ryan was named the Patriotic Voice of the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) for their Celebrate AmericaCampaign.  The World Finals is the biggest global stage in professional bull riding – a booming sport now seen in more than 400 million homes worldwide. The Celebrate America Campaign is a season-long initiative that honors America’s heroes, inspires youth, and brings communities together. 

Ryan made his debut in the primetime performance slot, which was previously held by Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler in 2016. At that time, the PBR officially launched Ryan as a PBR artist and debuted his new EP entitled Celebrate America.  Ryan worked closely with hit songwriter Wynn Varble on the Celebrate America EP, co-writing three of the four songs. He has toured the U.S. and internationally to Australia with the PBR in 2018 and 2019, performing his songs and singing the “National Anthem” at US events. He has several performances scheduled in Australia this year. 

Ryan performed on the first single from the West Point Military Academy’s Benny Havens Band’s debut album Songs That Save Our Lives. The song was short-listed for GRAMMY Award consideration in the American Roots category. The album also featured Charlie Daniels. 

(Did you want to say this twice?) Ryan released two singles in 2019 titled “ARRIVAL” and “Time Like This.” He is also conducting multiple motivational speaking engagements while promoting his partnerships with Lima Charlie Clothing Company, Lane Boots, Soledier Socks, Liberty Home Concealment and Forj’d America.

I don’t take a second of my freedom for granted because of Ryan’s family and plenty of other retired, active-duty fight for our freedom and freedom doesn’t come free. I have tons of family, friends who have served and I WILL ALWAYS SAY THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE! They give up so much so we can sleep at night and not have to worry! I am so excited and honored to have Mr. Ryan Weaver on here. 

Before COVID I was volunteering at our veterans’ home once a month, I am an auxiliary member at the American Legion! My grandfather served World War 2 I have friends in Army, Marines, Cost Guard, all branches. My cousin is just finishing up basic training. I am so proud of them all. I never want YOU to take your freedom for granted because someone is sacrificing there life on the line, so you get to enjoy it. Remember nothing is free in this world everything comes with a price even YOUR FREEDOM! 

I want to thank Ryan Weaver for being on this week’s blog! Please be on the lookout on my social media about us doing an Instagram live sometime this week!!!

Monday Motivation New Week and New Month!

Happy Monday everyone and the first day of March! How is everyone’s Monday going? Any goals you want to crush this week or month? I know I do! I am so excited there are so many exciting things happening here on the blog and in life.

If you have been following me for a while you know how much I love goals and crushing them! I am all about if you can believe you can YOU CAN! I want to talk about something that someone once said that has stuck with me for a while. Growing up and playing golf I could not putt for the life of me and I was always comfortable in everything else, my coach looked at me and said “Grace don’t be so 1 dimensional” I have always looked at my life like golf because its the only game closest to life. I never want to be 1D I want to be able to putt, chip, drive farther than yesterday and live outside my comfort zone!

Ok my little story time is over now but in all seriousness I want you to be able to grow outside your comfort zone. I was so scared to putt because I was horrible at it and one day I started 3 feet away from the hole and then when I was able to do that I went a little farther and a little farther until I CONFIDENTLY knew I was able to putt and not question myself.

I started at the gym again and I am loving it I am a little gym rat and I make time for it because its important to me! MY GOAL FOR YOU is take a sticky note a piece of paper whatever and I want you to write down one goal you have for this week! Along with writing 3 goals you want to accomplish for this month!

Talking About How Everything Happens For A Reason…

Happy Wednesday everyone! We are in mid-week and I am just so excited for these new business opportunities that have came up. Yesterday I was listening to EncourageHer Podcast with this girl named Kendra her story is amazing and I reached out to her and she was like I need to ask you if you want to be part of my team as a wellness coach and I said YES…

If you know me you know I have struggled with food and working out on and off and one thing through this journey is I AM OK!! I want to be the person who is saying its ok! I am one person but if I can turn around and help the next person in line I will!! There is a lot of things when Kendra asked me to be a coach for BeachBody I was so unsure but I am so grateful that I said YES!! I want to help people know they aren’t alone and I want to be their Motivator. Kendra is someone who I look up to and it’s not just in faith but in life.

If I have learned anything from this experience is always SAY YES no matter what because that shows what kind of doors is opening for you.

You’re probably thinking right now why at almost 20 do you want to be able to work from home. I have always knew and wanted to be a stay home mom and be a wife and everything I am doing is so at 27 I am able to have the life I have dreamed of and wanted. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and I want to thank Kendra and God and for everything.

Monday Motivational & Coffee Convos…

It’s getting that time of year again where I am sitting outside when I am not in class and drinking iced coffees and soaking up the sun! How are you spending your nice days out?

I’m going to change up todays post instead of talking about goals I want to have a little chit chat about the small things while I am drinking some iced coffee. Hence the title coffee convos 😉

As the semester is winding down and getting ready for finals remember self care is a thing. The weather is getting nicer do yourself a favor and go get some vitamin D. I feel so much happier when I am outside doing work than being inside. What do you do on your sunny days? Do you soak up the sun? I would love to hear your ideas on how your soaking up the sun!

I love coffee convos and drinking an iced coffee or a tea during the summer and having caffeine is a must for me to survive! I love how the deepest conversations I have had with people are over coffee. When I am out with my cousin we always stop and get coffee first.

What are some of your favorite conversations over coffee? I am a coffee lover and I am always trying coffee! I like my coffee with cream and sugar and a lot of sweetness.
