  • Don’t Stunt your growth

    Don’t Stunt your growth

    May 13, 2022 “Don’t Stunt your growth” Three weeks down and three more to go. I have a new client in this bootcamp and week one she timed in on green team. She has been working out in that area and on that team, however by the second week of bootcamp she excelled immensely. I mean when I demonstrate the advanced version of the exercises, she always tries them first and the majority of the time she does very well. By the third week I told her that although she is officially on the green team, I want her to move to the middle of the room and workout with the yellow team. I also asked her to workout with the yellow team on the outdoor sessions. Her eyes got really ....

  • I get it from my Momma!

    I get it from my Momma!

    May 6, 2022 “I Get it from my Momma!” When I am working in my wellness center, giving vitamin B12 shots, starting IVs on clients, or waiting for their lab work to finish processing, I make small talk. This week I asked clients what they were doing for Mother’s Day. I saw many expressions of joy, excitement and pain in people faces as I asked this question. Like myself, one client is flying home and surprising their mom for Mother’s Day. One client’s mother is turning 75 and they have a huge celebration planned. One client stated she and her mom don’t have a great relationship and don’t speak often. I prayed with her to find peace ....

  • I Heard That...

    I Heard That...

    April 29, 2022 “I Heard That…” The first week of bootcamp always brings on a lot of interesting conversations for me. I cannot tell you how many times this week alone that someone shared some information with me that started off with “I heard that….” All of the information they shared with me was false. In my experience the term “I heard” has stopped a lot of people from trying something new, trying something that seemed impossible for them or trying some that would help them achieve their goals. Here are a few of those conversations and FACTS to dispel the “I heard that…” conversations! As I was going over ....

  • “It is not how you start but how you finish”

    “It is not how you start but how you finish”

    April 9, 2022 “It is not how you start but how you finish” I remember times in my life where I was worried about how things looked in the moment. Sometimes you can’t see past your here and now, making it difficult to encourage yourself for the road ahead. Our current situations sometimes blind us to what’s ahead. It’s hard to imagine running the company when you’re just trying to get hired. It’s hard to see yourself walking across the stage getting your degree, when you’re just praying to make it through that difficult class, let me tell you…nursing school at Tuskegee was no joke! One thing we can be sure ....

  • IV Therapy for Allergies

    IV Therapy for Allergies

    April 1, 2022, IV Therapy for Allergies The runny nose. The itchy, watery, puffy eyes. The sneezing and the wheezing. Is anyone else feeling this way? You can tell when your allergies are triggered and it’s not fun. The symptoms are a result of your immune system reacting to something that is usually harmless. IV therapy can bring much needed symptom relief for allergy symptoms. DISCLAIMER: Whether taken by mouth or IV form, vitamin supplementation is for wellness only, and not intended to cure or treat disease. Although taking over the counter allergy medications seem to give us some relief, there are many side effects, with some sending you to the emergency ....

  • UNBECOMING

    UNBECOMING

    March 25, 2022 “Unbecoming” I recently came across a new quote and I have fallen in love with it. “Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about UNBECOMING everything that isn’t you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.” One of my favorite shows on television is coming to an end after 6 years. The episode that aired this week really touched me. There is a married couple, Toby & Kate, who met in a therapy session for obese people. They were the loud ones always joking and making fun of themselves first. They appeared to be the most confident people in the group. They would wear loud colorful ....

  • “Where has all the Muscle Gone?”

    “Where has all the Muscle Gone?”

    March 18, 2022 “Where has all the Muscle Gone?” Today is midpoint and at this time, I often have a lot of difficult conversations with people because they don’t understand how body fat, eating enough calories and muscle loss works. No matter how much I explain this, so many of us are brainwashed into thinking if we eat more “healthy” calories while exercising that we will gain weight instead of losing weight. Notice I put emphasis on healthy calories. However, I do truly understand the misunderstanding, so let me explain. Let me discuss how body fat works. There are so SO many articles and books about the dangers of "excess" body fat. But ....

  • This is MY season!

    This is MY season!

    March 11, 2022 “This is MY season!” In our bootcamp nutritional meal plan booklet there is a graphic that shows when fruits and vegetables are in season. You would think that anytime you eat a piece of fruit or vegetable that it will be highly beneficial for you. However, you gain more nutritional benefits when you buy and eat seasonably, because fruit and veggies bought in season are not only more affordable but taste better. This same idea is true for seasons in your life. I know hands down that I am in a harvest winning season. I am reaping the benefits of all my hard work and because of all my life’s struggles I can acknowledge the season I am in, and I do not ....

  • I NEED my SELFCARE

    I NEED my SELFCARE

    March 5, 2022 "I NEED my SELFCARE" This morning I read a book that had me flashback through a myriad of emotions. Do you give much time to yourself?What does ‘me time’ mean to you or do you even set aside ‘me time’? The definition of self-care is the practice of taking care of one’s well-being and happiness especially during times of stress. One of my client’s wrote in their daily meal plan book - “I have a lot on my plate; doing for me is what I should be able to do. I’m learning that everyone don’t think you should take/make time for self-care when they aren’t the “SELF”! I know this mentality ....

  • “Are you Reactive or Proactive?”

    “Are you Reactive or Proactive?”

    February 14, 2022 “Are you Reactive or Proactive?” A high school (HS) friend called me over the weekend to tell me that one of our favorite coaches from HS, Coach Vaughn passed away. It led me to talking about when my favorite teacher/my mentor/my soror was first diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, RIP Mrs. Rodgers. My first reaction was to get on a plane and go see her and that’s just what I did. As the old folks would say, “I had to lay my eyes on her”. I had to see for myself how she was doing, to see if she needed anything and to basically let them know I am always here for her. When I arrived in Detroit at my mentor’s home, she had ....
