Factbomb Friday – STOP Wishing for it…

I’m just gonna dish out some tough love here: STOP wishing for it and START working for it.

I can barely count how many messages I get that begin with “I wish I was as XYZ as you…” and while it’s flattering, it also makes me feel like people might not realize that if I’m eating well, it’s BECAUSE I prep. If I’m having a healthy pregnancy, it’s BECAUSE I’m moving my body to the degree with which I’m able.

I’m not WISHING for it, I’m WORKING for it, because that, and ONLY that, is how you attain what you are aiming for.

Stop exerting energy on wishes, realize you are WORTH the efforts, and channel your energy into that – you will get MUCH further, I promise.

As always, if you need help, I got you! You are more capable than you think, but you gotta begin!

Factbomb Friday – Be Hungry!

Hungry people are willing to do the things today that others won’t do in order to have the things tomorrow that others won’t have.

Hungry people are relentless. People that are hungry are unstoppable. They refuse to give up.
No excuse is acceptable. If you want it, you will do whatever it takes. You CAN do it.

Say it with me now: “IT’S MY TIME. IT’S POSSIBLE. IT’S NECESSARY. IT’S HARD. BUT IT’S WORTH IT.”

Believe in yourself. You only get one shot. Make it count; the time is NOW.

Happy Friday! 😊

 

Factbomb Friday – The world does not revolve around you…

(Not my post, but…)

I’m curious what my service industry friends (and anyone else) thinks of this…

How would YOU have responded?

Even though I’m not in the service industry per se, I’ve had clients message me, and when I didn’t answer swiftly enough for them, they’ve sent question mark messages or gotten upset, and I’ll be honest, those are the people I back off of. Sorry, but I am at no ones beck and call 24/7, and people need to understand that.

I’m a full time worker, a wife, a dog mama, soon to be a human mama, and I have responsibilities just like everyone else.

And also, I agree with this person – I am no good to anyone else unless I’m good to myself. I will offer you the absolute best I can, but EFF someone thinking I am out of line for taking care of myself and my wellness.

Seems like someone never learned what happens when you assume…

What say you?

 

Factbomb Friday – She is NOT JUST A DOG

She is NOT just a dog.

She is my baby. Soon, she won’t be the ONLY baby, but she will STILL be my baby. The very night I told Dave I was pregnant, I made him promise me we’d never be those people who cast their pup aside. It will be hard, the baby will need a lot of attention… but we will make it work because Roxy also deserves love, affection, and attention.

She will STILL be a priority, her needs will still matter, and we won’t love her ANY less. In fact, I’m pretty sure we will love her even MORE watching her fiercely protect that tiny little human.

Yesterday, two different people I am friendly with had to put their fur babies down, and my heart broke for them, of course. But one of them had tons of love, support and understanding, and it warmed my heart, and I was grateful she had that… the other one had people left and right telling her it’s just a dog, and it made my heart break for her even more so.

Why are we telling people how they should feel? Why are we minimizing their loss?

If you think it’s “just” a dog, maybe you shouldn’t have one… just my .02, and since it’s Friday and I’m feeling generous, you may keep the change 😉

 

Factbomb Friday – Work Hard and Play Hard!

A workout while both pumpkin AND apple pie, on top of a Turkey feast, are still taking a ‘nap’ in my belly is not my idea of a good time…

But days like yesterday are why we absolutely MUST move today – that’s balance!

We can’t just feast and then not move – I mean we could, but that’s not gonna get you to your goals!

Feast hard and then work hard! It IS totally possible to make holiday feasts part of your goals!

Booty day, DONE! ✔️

Factbomb Friday – Break Down

• Sometimes you have to allow yourself to break down, and fall apart, so you have the grounds with which to rebuild and start fresh •

When you allow this, you begin to heal. You are flowing in a new way, and this is an incredibly POWERFUL opportunity to become new again; to CHOOSE how you want to put yourself back together.
