This!! 👏Over the past 8 months I've been trying my hardest to reset my thinking to better Myself for Myself! I'm always doing for my kids, family, and students before myself. And not that its a bad thing but I was always so drained and unhappy by the end of each day. I slowly began to start doing little things like taking lavender detox baths with my music playing, a glass of wine AND THE DOOR LOCKED. Yes, the door locked for 30minutes of ME time. I know it sounds so silly, a simple bath but for me that was HUGE. I then began to start taking hours, then a day here and there of ME time. I was being AMELIA again, not Mom or Ms. G but just Amelia! I was feeling recharged and my passions coming back for all the things I enjoy doing in life. I feel more confident in being a better Mom, my work, out look on life, and my relationships with family/friends. I didn't think I could feel this way especially after another failed relationship and being a single Mom.
BUT I KNOW I GOT THIS SHIT! 💪🙌🏼 I just needed to remind myself, that I also need self love in order to be productive and the best version of me. So friends take time for yourself, whatever it may be just do it for YOU! AND DON'T YOU DARE FEEL GUILTY! You can't pour from an empty cup so, LOVE YOURSELF TOO💗 !! #selfcaresunday#reset#loveyourself#treatyourself#takeabreak#rechargeyourbattery#lovethyself#love#oilymamalife#bossbabe#lavenderlover_#healthieroptions#nontoxic#healingsalve#lavender#lavenderlover
Change YOUR mindset... Change YOUR life..✅ Make goals.. Follow through... Make NEW goals... Repeat.✌ When you share your goals with others you are more likely to follow through. I use to say, "I can't." Now, I jump right in. If I need to modify moves or use less weight, then I do. If I need to take a break, I do, I don't just quit. My mindset has changed drastically over the past year. I show up for me. I just get it done the best that I can. Not always pretty either, but I still keep at it.
Because, I do this for me. I will keep holding myself accountable right here ☝️. #selfmotivation#accountability .
How long have you been following my fitness journey? Let me know.😉 #noexcuses#mindset#goals#progress#nonscalevictory#thisis40#screwthescale#selflove#selfcare#lovethyself
I’m thrilled for today. I get to wake up - get up - and show up!
And for those of you who go UGH - guess what -
I used to suffer Mondayitis SO BAD
I thought it was terminal!
But turns out it’s not,
Its mindset bitches ♥️

Many women fail on putting themselves first and believe that working out and committing to a program will be too hard and not to mention nutrition is the hardest. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard:
•“I can’t do this because I know myself I won’t be able to do the workouts”
•”I don’t have time”
•”I love to eat”
•”I have family”
•”I go to school and work full time”
Here’s the thing guys I too used to say that but guess what⁉️ I work two jobs and I do massages on certain days and I 𝐌𝐀𝐊𝐄 time for 𝙈𝙀! Because I learned that 𝙇𝙤𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙈𝙔𝙎𝙀𝙇𝙁 𝙁𝙄𝙍𝙎𝙏 was more important than going through any type of illness and keeping my health accountable was more important than anything else.
This program isn’t about losing weight only is to motivate you to get up and push for yourself to the limit. 𝘐𝘧 𝘐 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘥𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴, 𝘪𝘧 𝘢 𝘮𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘰𝘧 5 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘧𝘶𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬𝘦𝘳 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘥𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴, 𝘪𝘧 𝘢 𝘧𝘶𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘥𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘧𝘶𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬𝘦𝘳 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘥𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴... 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐂𝐀𝐍 𝐓𝐎𝐎!
At my place of work, I have been supporting the treatment of an ex Hollywood stuntman. (Name is withheld to protect his privacy ... thank you HIPPA) He's now in his 80's, and he's captivating when he unleashes a memory through one of his stories. He's lived a life so, completely apart from my own life, that I find myself spellbound by his recount of a time and place that he no longer lives except through his memories and his stories. When visiting with him the other day, we thought it would be fun to start scheduling "Story time" on Fridays, (the day the practice is closed) with "Wine and cheese of course" ... as he puts it. What will we ever do once he's been discharged from therapy?! Story time on Friday's sounded like a great idea. He said to me, "How do you know my stories are even true? I could be making the whole thing up!" I know he's just messing with me but it got me to thinking about the stories we tell and how true they are. How much do we read in the media or listen, as information is being reported and how much of it do we believe to be true? You could even add in all of the extra details, supporting theories, pictures, videos, data, documentation and such, but I wonder if it even makes that story that much more true? Perhaps it all converges on what we chose to believe in and once we believe in it, the support and validation will show up. What happens to a story when it's no longer believed in? Will it disintegrate and vaporize or will it linger around waiting for someone else to grab ahold of it and carry it along? I'm not sure I believe in my ex-Hollywood stuntman's stories, but I love a great story and whether or not the story is true, it's fun to be in his presence as he recounts a time and place in his own experience as only he can tell it. Maybe some day, I'll have stories to tell that will captivate an audience. Wouldn't that be fun? All my love ~ Noël 💜🦋🙏
How true is this? As my children were growing up I had no time to think of myself. The older they got I realized time is of the essence! I needed to take care of me to care for my family.
Bless Sunday everyone!!! On my way to run errands and was being silly taking selfies🤷🏽♀️. Praying abundance of peace and joy for each and everyone of you!!! I think my coffee ☕️ gave me a wired up hike this afternoon, super pumped and ready to start my day as I praise and worship myself for me. You have to take time out to love yourself first. Today I’m loving 🥰 me. Isn’t she pretty? Lol 😂 love you all, be safe as you enjoy your day!!!!! #ketocoffee#praiseandworship#doingme#selflove#itstartswithyou#lovethyself
