So We Wait! 

As I sit back in stillness; I'm able to unpack MY emotions which have been numerous. Over the course of 9 months you get a chance to think allot, reflect and bond with the life you're creating. I honestly think this is the reason why God gives you this time because it's allot of emotions to unpack. 

When I first found out I was pregnant; I was shocked to say the very least. I know so many women who struggle with infertility; and have longed to be a mother! Many who have privately messaged me tell me I give them hope! So I don't take this natural birth for granted.

Throughout my pregnancy; I had to rehab my back going out; overcome a
painful knee injury and a host of other pregnancy symptoms from severe indigestion, nausea to days of fatigue. However, I never stop my trainings! All the while I pushed through- despite the opinions and advice-of others (some warranted; many not) however, trusting my foundation and that my health and fitness would overall prevail along with my faith in God!  Which have made for a  very healthy pregnancy! 

God has provided me with the most amazing doctors (Angels)! Despite many people's bad experiences I've received nothing but love and support down to the nurses and staff who haved cheered me on at each of my high energy; laughing out loud visits! (A part of my personality I can't control!)

I have to say; this is the blessing that you receive with age! You trust yourself more and block out the opinions of others!  The wisdom is priceless....

So as I stand here today waiting for this miracle to be born! I'm humble and grateful! I made it all the way to a Full-Term-Healthy! 

@Moussa! Thank you for all of your amazing love and support! You've held me down through each and every emotion! I cant wait to see where this beautiful miracle takes us!!

@Rachel thank you for being a friend! -and to my stringbean! You will forever be my 👯‍♀️ - and my heartbeat!

This Pregnant @ 48!!! Full Term!

Client Appreciation! 

Shout out to @tahere77 ! One of my star clients! As an endurance athlete; our goal wasn't to gain unnecessary muscle mass but to focus on improving his athletic conditioning, work on strengthing his core weakness and most importantly focusing on injury prevention and correcting those injuries that arrise quickly so he can continue to crush his marathon trainings! 

I must say I'm beyond proud! I'm a stickler for proper form, properly loading and dismounting weights!

He takes all my visual and verbal directives and adjust them and correct as needed! 

❇️You don't complain allot verbally @ least! But the faces you give me can write books! 

So proud to see all those incredible running times you're posting!!! 

Let's take this all the way.....to sub 3 times!

Happy Saturday! 

Flashback to 9/18/2020 during the Pandemic when I had no access to the gym but was still able to create an in home strength endurance workout with just bodyweight excercises; my outdoor runs, and just two set of dumbbells. The goal was not to loose all my muscle and stay fit.

Fast forward to 9/18/2021! Still training all 9 months of my pregnancy! 

Life Happens! We can't control many things around us; but what we can control is how we respond and the excuses me make! 

❇️Take control of your health and fitness! It's the foundation for your success!

❇️ Client Appreciation!!! 

Highlighting @nicholethompsonadams for her dedication and commitment to taking ownership of her health and well-being. Even though she may complain during each training session (with a few choice explicatives in between) I relentlessly push her and won't let her give up on herself! 

❇️I'm super proud of how you've grown since we've started! Can't wait until after 🤰! Taking you to a whole new level! Get ready! 

We work hard so we can look and feel good!

Practice Makes Perfect!! 

Gearing up for the finish line and braided my own hair in preparation! I must say pretty proud of myself 🥰! 

It's amazing the things we can do when we put our minds to it! 

Who said you can't rock @ 9 months! Happy Labor Day Weekend!
