  • Scare Your Fears Away

    Scare Your Fears Away

    February 7, 2020 “Scare your Fears away” 2019 was an amazing year for me! I had several speaking engagements, performed at a Superbowl LIII event in front of hundreds, was interviewed and featured in the AJC and in Upscale magazine, started a personal training school, and made an appearance on the Power to the People TV show. I was also in preparation to launch my first No Mess Fitness apparel line, which launched successfully January 2020 selling out within a week. This list isn’t my way of bragging, I wanted to share as examples some life events that all have one thing in common. I was SCARED out of my mind while in preparation for all of them. However, when ....

  • Are You Listening?

    Scrolling through Instagram I came across a meme that said, “If you listen to your body when it whispers, you won’t ever have to hear it scream.” As a registered nurse I can tell you this is really great advice. The big question is do you follow it? When I talk to most people about their health status it’s a low key, quiet conversation but if I were to ask them about their car the conversation becomes more animated. So lets think about your car for a moment. Don’t you just hate it when you get in, start it up and one of those darn red warning lights comes on?You know the ones that indicate that the tire pressure is low, your rear light is ....

  • New Ways…New Results..New You

    New Ways…New Results..New You

    Yesterday as we were running, I was encouraging someone to jog instead of walk, I then started to push her up MY hill, needless to say she was not happy with me. She stated, “If this is what I have to do on run days, then I just won’t show up”. How self-defeating of her! One of the hardest things to do in life is to take a chance and step outside of your comfort zone. It’s definitely easier to be set in your ways and do only what makes you feel comfortable. However, your life experiences shape you, as you continue to learn and grow as a person. New experiences can inspire you to take paths that you never imagined and open you up to a whole new world of ....

  • Living is Dreaming

    Living is Dreaming

    Your dreams are the reason you exist. Your dreams are not coincidence or happenstance. You MUST pursue them! Your dreams provide a sense of meaning and purpose to your life and drive you into YOUR chosen future. Your dreams ARE the meaning of your life! Take your dreams off the shelf! Focus. Strive. Work hard, this is how things were meant to be. Working toward and accomplishing your dreams is God’s way of involving you in his Master Plan. This week another one of my dreams came true. My No Mess Apparel line is no longer a dream but a reality. Folks will see the apparel line on the shelf or online, but won’t understand what it took to get it there. For years I have ....

  • Barefoot and Happy

    Barefoot and Happy

    At the beginning of the year many people start to reflect on what happened to them over the last year and what personal changes they want to make. I find it hard to make changes if you don’t know who you are, where you came from and where you are going. The highlight of my trips to Detroit are my days spent with my 97-year-old Granny. The wisdom and humor just flow from her. I was looking on a bookshelf and saw this picture. When I asked Granny to tell me more about the man in the picture, her eyes lit up and with an endearing voice and her southern drawl, she said, “Oh that’s my Paw Paw”. His name was William Brock Sr. born in ....

    Decatur Bootcamp | Embrace the Season of Change

    Embrace the Season of Change Seasons bring change throughout the year, clocks change every second and this decade will not wait one more year, however change is difficult for many people. Whether you perceive it or not, everything is constantly changing, the weather, the economy, technology (who would have thought that not only can you talk to someone on a portable phone but would be able to see them as well). Life, culture, your friends and family, your body, everything changes. The better able you are to embrace change the easier it will be for you to live your best life. “Change is the only constant in life” ~Heraclitus I talk to people all the time ....

  • I Wish You Peace Joy and Mental Wellness

    I Wish You Peace Joy and Mental Wellness

    Most of the time when we think of the Christmas Holiday season, Jesus should be the reason for the season as well as spreading joy to the world, however, it tends to be a lot of shopping until we drop. As a nurse I know all to well that for many people the holidays bring stress, anxiety, or reminders of a lost loved one. It is a season of severe depression and higher suicide rates, but when you google for tips on how to stay healthy during the holidays, you will find hundreds of tips for healthy eating and none for our mental health. Mental wellness is just as important as physical well being, especially around this time of year. This holiday season take some time for your mental ....

  • Just Take A Deep Breath

    Just Take A Deep Breath

    As we enter our last bootcamp of the year can we take a deep breath together?
    Sit with your back straight.
    Place the tip of your tongue behind your upper front teeth and keep it there through the entire next steps.
    Exhale throughout your mouth around your tongue; try pursing your lips lightly if this seems awkward.
    Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound
    Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of 4

    Hold your breath for a count of 7

    Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound to a count of 8

    This is one complete breath. Inhale again and repeat the ....

  • Be In Control

    Be In Control

    In the lyrics of Janet Jackson’s “Control” song; This is story about control My control, Control of what I say Control of what I do And this time I'm gonna do it my way I hope you enjoy this as much as I do Are we ready? I am 'Cause it's all about control, And I've got lots of it Just like Janet Jackson, most of us hate being told what to do? As a kid sometimes I was rebellious and would scratch and claw when ordered around. As an adult whether you are at work or at play when someone ask you to do something you really don’t want to do (like your trainer), it takes a conscious act of will to smile and ....
