The most common question that I receive is “how do I get abs, what exercises should I do?” Are you ready for the secret that will get abs?? It’s... NUTRITION!! Not what you wanted to hear but it’s the truth. My results below were from 80 days of timed nutrition using my portion control containers. It’s all about what you’re eating, when you’re eating it, and portion size. This is exactly what the Ultimate Portion Fix teaches you. No more crash dieting 🤪 No more cutting out food groups 🚫 No more deprivation and starvation 🥕 No more food or sugar addiction 🍭🍪 As of TODAY the Ultimate Portion Fix is available to everyone and my 1st group will be starting 4/1.

Peace out VA Beach!! Brady is stalking Jaxson in this picture. As we were leaving this morning I started to get those anxious butterflies that I’d always get after a long weekend knowing that I’d have to go back into the office the next day. How many messages did I have waiting? What urgent project had to be taken care of? What staff member was upset about something? I took a deep breath and realized that this was no longer my reality. That I’m my own boss and I choose how my day goes. It’s not always easy but a much better reality than what I had.
Maybe if I prepare for this photo shoot like a bikini comp ....THEN ....I will have my "best" body and perfect picture (Doesn't exist) Maybe if I put a computer and phone in my hand...THEN..... people will actually believe me that I am make a living from my internet based business. (Does it matter what people think?) Maybe after this photo shoot, and the launch of my website...THEN....people will REALLY take me seriously? (Uh...are you taking yourself seriously?) Maybe if I do exactly what "those" people are doing in the social media world ....THEN..I will feel..... Do you see the pattern? When I am...THEN I will feel______ [fill in the blank]...Doesn't exist You can have the website, the photos, the followers, the podcasts and everything else in between but if you don't FEEL it all from within.....all those things do not matter if you are truly not feeling right in this moment. #graceandgrit #blessitforward
I should know. Do you agree?💜
FANGIRLING. Understandable if you stumble across Jude Law, and subsequently lose all ability to speak in the face of the actor who gave you a dangerous weakness for bookish blonde Brits after you saw The Holiday. Looking like you’ve been hit over the head with a brick or being reduced to gibberish is relatively normal in such a circumstance. Not so much, when meeting your industry hero. It’s a bit of a Catch 22. You are meeting or speaking with a person you really respect for their work and career, but you also have to come across as professional, savvy and worthy of their time. With that in mind, as part of The Nine to Five Guide, I’m sharing a few tips today over on le blog ✨
You heard me... . Stop playing it safe. . Do you feel like you're stuck / spinning your wheels? . Is it possible you've been trying to take the safe path? . The path that doesn't require you to face rejection? . The path that allows you to avoid potential pain or failure? . Are you doing all the things, but not getting anywhere? . Guess what! . If that's the case, you're doing the WRONG things! . It's time to start taking action you can actually fail at. . Take it from me. . In my business, I spent months passively building my website and Instagram hoping clients would come. . Spoiler Alert: THEY DIDN'T! . Your people are out there WAITING for you. . The catch? They don't know you exist yet. . What are you going to do to TODAY to find them and start building a relationship? . Let's talk through it! 👇🏻
Happy Motivational Monday! This past week I had a few people send me a list of lies another person said, I became extremely upset that this person keeps making up stories so people will feel sorry for her and help her while discrediting me.. I started gathering proof regarding the lies and planned to expose her, then I just heard “STOP! Why waste anymore time! Just STAND and WALK in your truth.” I realized at that moment my calling is bigger than the lies the enemy will use to discredit and distract. I stopped gathering proof, and prayed for this person. Cause at the end of the day, something inside of this person must be hurting so bad to attempt to hurt someone else. She isn’t the enemy... the spirit attached to her is.. so this motivational Monday, do 2 things! Let people talk, don’t be on the defense. The truth always comes out! So let it be and 2, pray for them, rebuke that spirit and put it under your feet! You have hills to climb, use it as a stepping stone to your next level. No time to waste proving a point. In the words of Aunty Michelle! When they go low YOU go high! Keep pressing! . . .#godswarrior #motivationalmonday #stayfocused #dontbelievethelies #patriceempowers #overcomer #graceandgrit #joy #peace #ministry #whentheygolowyougohigh

GIRL! Get your shit together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyone else say that to themselves?! No? Just me?! Psssht y’all are a bunch of liars 😝😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We all have those seasons where maybe we aren’t showing up for ourselves or in our lives quite like we know we can. We want to but, shoot, sister, life just keeps derailing those “I’ll start Monday” plans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And then it’s Monday again. And we are just fucking tired. #truth
And we give in and push our plans, dreams, and goals back because of all those very valid reasons. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here is the thing, girl, there’s never going to be a good time. You have to dig down deep, dig in, and just fucking START!! Even if it’s like Tuesday cuz missing one day doesn’t mean you have to wait for another Monday to come around. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Use allllllll that stubbornness, that persistence, that resourcefulness you’re always impressing people with FOR YOURSELF!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve got a group starting April 1st. And I’m going to bring ALL of my GRIT and ALL of my GRACE and I’m going to coach my little heart out - are you ready to be on the receiving end of that?! Are you ready to get your shit together?! #sayyes

Meal prep Sundays are my fav! I put on my fav show or current book on Audible & get it done. This week is low-carb but definitely high comfort food my way. 😍 When it’s a high stress season I compromise with healthier versions of happy food. Allows me to emotionally eat foods that won’t tilt the scale. And of course 3-4 workouts this week. —— #mylife #myjourney #stopmakingexcuses #graceandgrit #mealprep
Still here. Still trying to kill the game. Friday I got to try a new HIIT workout class! It was bomb. (Is that even a saying anymore)? But it was everything I needed and more. I’m looking forward to the next class. Yesterday we walked NYC. Not as many miles as I thought but non the less over 6.5 miles. It definitely would have been more but the St. Patty’s parade was happening so the shut down our routes. Anyways here’s to a new week and new goals. #lowimpactworkout #goodendorphins #graceandgrit #hshive #walkwalkwak
Dinner and drinks with my favorite... Happy St. Paddy’s Day!!
Sometimes you are so overwhelmed by the things you don’t understand. Everywhere you look there is chaos, confusion, and down right evil. You’ve been disappointed by what didn’t happen, confused by what did happen, and betrayed by what should NOT have happened. • It’s like your world has become an episode of wilding out and the people you least expected, have joined the cast of characters. • The voice of doubt is going gangster in your ear causing you to question if God is really for you, why in the world is so much stuff coming against you. At this point God’s promises sound like a “good idea” but feel more like a pipe dream. • But now you know better and realize God already gave you a heads up that you would have problems but no worries, He’s already overcome the world. That His word is ALWAYS the antidote to anything that attacks your peace, your health, your joy, and you’re provision. That His awesome plan for you hasn’t changed regardless of what your situation has to say. • So #RestWell
knowing that your world may be overrun with foolishness but take hope, God’s faithfulness is overflowing in every area of your life. • • IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE INTENTIONAL LIKE I AM ABOUT RESTING WELL TONIGHT.... Put some 💤’s in the comment section!⬇️☺️

Do you ever just have a moment where you look at your family and think wow I am so blessed. 😍 I did nothing to deserve this and yet he gave it to me. I didn’t grow up with the tools to make a relationship work yet we stand 15 years strong. To God be the glory. I am so thankful that his grace covers all, and that he chose me to be their mom and his wife. I love Sundays! ☀️💛☀️ #sundayservice #graceandgrit #homeschoolmom #sundaybest
Luck is a word we throw around when we forget that God has a great and mighty plan for our lives.🍀 I believe in a Creator who deliberately cares about my life. I don’t believe in any kind of happenstance. I believe in His power. I believe that when I take steps in faith, obedience but most importantly LOVE, He opens up opportunity. "We may throw the dice, but the LORD determines how they fall." Proverbs 16:33 If I ever start to think I'm lucky, I'm not giving God the credit for being who He says He is. I'm not acknowledging that He is present in a very real way in my life and in my everyday circumstances.🍀
Shamrock Half is history! This is one of my favorite races and this year didn’t disappoint. The weather was perfect and you can’t beat coming onto the boardwalk by the ocean for your final half mile. My old lady back kicked in around mile 5 so I didn’t hit my goal time but I did beat my time from last year by 3 minutes so I’ll take it.
“Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!” Romans 15:13 * While other delights fill us temporarily... God offers joy, peace, and hope. True satisfaction is found only in Christ! 🙌🏻 Happy Sunday, friends! ❤️ #sundayscripture #hopeinchrist
This morning I got to speak to a few hundred women about what it means to Fear God and Choose Brave. This afternoon I get to live that out in the most (extra)ordinary ways in my own home. As it should be, because this simple (but not easy) work of faithfulness matters just as much as any stage we ever stand on. Thankful for the reminder. And the hundreds of women living this out right along with me. You make me braver.
✨Happy Self Care Saturday!✨ . . . EVERYDAY is self care day, but Saturdays are perfect to reset, recharge and reignite the soul! . It’s been a 2.5 hour massage, brunch, and Target kind of day. Now watching the boy play some ball. This day, like every other, is awesome! What are you doing today to bring the joy and fun? #restandrelax #permissiontopause #fillyourcup #selfcareeveryday
Your passion leads you into knowing and understanding your purpose. Kids need lots of opportunities to experiment with different ideas and environments, which helps them know what they enjoy doing and what works for them. This process cannot be rushed and is not on a set time table. @julia_brickman #thesipperapp
In case you missed it ... Lent 2019 Cultivating Joy Reflections Week 1. This reflection series on cultivating joy was inspired by a conversation with my Catholic counselor, Dr. K., who asked me how despite my constant fight for health & wellness & being a chronic fighter & survivor could hold onto joy, laugh, & smile. I explained it stems from sheer grace, a childlike abandonement to God's plan, recognizing the little "things"or the ordinary & extrodinary gifts & blessings, allowing suffering to transform me & others, my faith & the sacraments, and choosing to be joyful & grateful. After my conversation with Dr. K and reading "The Grace of Enough" by @haleycarrots
this Lenten reflection series came into being. May God bless & keep you all on your Lenten jouney. . . “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” - Lamentations 3:22-23 #lent #lentendevotional #catholiclife #projectblessed #bissisterhood #chronicallycatholic #cultivatingjoy
Do You Know One of the GREATEST lessons I’ve learned???? The POWER OF SUSTAINING GRACE . _ No doubt about it, the struggle is real when you are in a season of waiting on God. _ The enemy wants to keep you focused on what hasn’t happened, how much time has passed in the process, God must have forgotten about you. _ But learning how to overcome impatience gives you complete clarity of how much God overwhelms you with His love, provision, & grace while you wait on HIs promise. _ The moment you stop letting your emotions interpret God’s faithfulness, you start walking in victory. _ God is preparing your for His best but while you wait, today is a great day to embrace the POWER OF SUSTAINING GRACE. _ Hands up 🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️if TODAY you are embracing the POWER of God’s sustaining GRACE.
