2020 has been the year of #plottwists for sure. I had many things on my calendar that flew out the window just like everyone else. BUT... let me tell you about the faithfulness of my God! When He interrupts our plans, it's always with a better one! If you had told me back in January that I would be sitting at a table with my former pastor, Dr. Gary Johnson, discussing writing a book for the wives of elders, I would have told you that you were crazy, yet here I am. #onlyGod Lots of things have happened this year that I wouldn't have chosen (I'm sure you know the feeling. ) But I've learned something over the years and have taught it many times - we can CHOOSE how we respond. I can't control everything that happens (but I sure as heck try to #justbeinghonest #controlfreak ) but I CAN choose how I respond. I have been very deliberate about being grateful. The simple act of opening my mouth in praise and gratitude keeps me focused on what's important. Honestly, life is too short to allow any bitter root to grow. Our God is good. He is faithful. He is trustworthy. I'm learning to approach each day holding my plans with a loose grip because, at the end of the day, I want what God wants for me more than what I think I want for myself. Happy Thursday, y'all!

I judge people based on how they clean the toilet. Like do you just clean the surface or are you a genuine soul and clean the back of it? The bottom? All the curves? #foodforthought #justbeinghonest #bye

This Is Why you must be careful with whom you vent to. Plus The word Sis, Suh, Queen, and even Friend is being too loosely thrown around these days with individuals who don't measure up to those titles or terms of endearment. Its not shade but Growing and Evolving. Its okay to call People by their Legal Name also and it not be offensive #justbeinghonest #DontTakeItPersonal #imusingyourgovernmentname #nobodyisEXEMPT #IamWhoIam

It’s been a loooooong day over here. #justbeinghonest #playingsiblingreferee But, I sure do love these little stinkers. ❤️ My bank of ideas on summer fun is running a little low though because I feel like we’ve done everything already. At least the playground never gets old! 🤷🏻‍♀️ Any fresh ideas on how to keep the fun coming this summer? I’d love to hear them!

I started out so strong at the end of July and did pretty well the month of August and then when September came, all the progress I had made was stalled. (Which I guess it’s good that I haven’t gained back any weight, but I haven’t lost anymore either.. ) Matt and I were on the road a lot throughout the month. We were seeing new places and eating good food as well as visiting family and eating all the home cooked meals. I was almost upset with myself but honestly it’s just been good to spend time with Matt and see family again. I’m still learning how to build a healthy relationship with food and create boundaries + routines. The past few days have been tough getting back into the grove but I’m still as determined now as I was at the end of July. More + new recipes to come, workout routines to be shared and hopefully there will be some progress pics to post + compare. Thank you for still following along and showing your support. It’s so helpful and encouraging. ❤️ #losingweight #weightlossjourney #lexilosesweight #justbeinghonest #weightlosstransformation #healthylifestylechange #caloriedeficit #countingcalories #changingmylife #learningtolovemyself #selflove #embracingthejourney

So I went back to teach this week and I started moving with modifications and it felt sooo good in the moment. Sometimes I think I have superpowers but then reality hits and I am reminded that I am of flesh and blood like everyone else 🧡. This was not how I had imagine how I would return to teaching and to my mat. I guess this is my “yoga” so I’m sitting back, observing and simply being human. (And yes I am ok, just had to listen to my body ) #allicangiveislove

Last nights Debate pretty much looked like this #JustBeingHonest


Quarantine Confessions: Take 1 (PORN ) I know I ain’t the only one that be fighting this urge. Haha! Plus, I heard there’s a lot of benefits from practicing semen retention... It’s about time I take on a new mountain, it might be hard but it’s never impossible. It just feels that way sometimes😂 #quarantine #confessions #porn #nopornchallange #90daysssplan #addiction #newgoals #guiltypleasure #semenretention #manhood #thingswedonttalkabout #justbeinghonest #sexismotivation #pu ̀ssy #lust #bootyyy #women #love #wife #marriage #faithful #bestrong #mindovermatter #anythingispossible #king #romance #is #therealthing #goodnight

Once again The Black woman has to carry her trauma as well as everyone else’s but I Believe Kamala can do it! Because tonight’s debate was straight trash! #justbeinghonest #presidentialdebate #blackwomen #kamalaharris


🌾client work🌾 Does anyone else mildly crap themselves when another photographer asks you to do a session for them?! Just me?! #justbeinghonest 💁🏼‍♀️ I had the absolute pleasure of capturing @capturedkindred beautiful family this summer and I loved every minute of it. I’m so glad we persevered with the moody skies and an eventual downpour.. nothing was going to rain on our parade! And while I had many favourites from this session, there’s just something about the whole mood of this first image... thank you thank you thank you Veronica for trusting me with these moments. (Also, if you’re in the GTA and looking for an extremely talented photographer, be sure to give @capturedkindred a follow! Not only does she produce beautiful work, but she is the kindest person! 💗 )


Day 270 My faaavvvoorite 🙄 of the suicide five ( ahem, did you hear the sarcasm?! ) Which in the Ab series is our least favorite? When teaching Double Leg Lower Lift in class I always feel a little bit guilty, just so y’all know 😐 But I suppose just like those healthy “ oh so tasty” 😒veggies, they are good for us too. So let’s just get’em done and out of the way, and move on with the day. #justbeinghonest #confesionsofapilatesinstructor Jude verse 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. #helpyourfellowman #buildupotherswithyourfaith #becauseofwhatjesusdidforus #eatyourveggies #moveyourbodyeveryday #pilatesinstructorlife #spinecorrector #abseriesof5 #lowerlift #lovetohateit

If you’re in the world of network marketing, chances are you’ve had one of these two thoughts.... 🙋🏼‍♀️I wish I started sooner -OR- 🙋🏼‍♀️I wish I could’ve been FIRST. Well hello there, pre-launch 👋🏼 Its totally not perfect (yet ) and comes with bumps in the road, glitches, and multiple adjustments.... #justbeinghonest But it also comes with the unique opportunity to truly pioneer a new brand, an INSANE potential for growth, and the kind of duplication I’ve only heard about from others. It might not be for everyone but let me tell you this - it sure is for me. 🙌🏻🙌🏻 You don’t get big rewards without taking big risks, and I am already so stinking grateful I jumped in on this one.... #justgettingstarted Timing isn’t always everything, but it sure is fun when you’re in the #rightplace at the #righttime Trust me, you don’t want to wait on this one... #runwithme

#FatBlasterCream ONNNN and I am in love with my sauna blanket! My clients love it even more!!! There are numerous health benefits to a infrared sauna blanket including aiding in weight-loss, muscle tension relief, detoxification, increased metabolism, and a stronger immune system. The controlled, timed heat will cause the body to sweat and release toxins. The result is a loss of excess body bloat. #theyhadmeatWEIGHTLOSS 😂😂🤷🏽‍♀️💯 #justbeinghonest

The reason why you can’t lose weight/fat is for 3 simple reasons.⁣ ⁣ 1. Your eating to many calories⁣ 2. Your not moving your body enough⁣ 3. A combination of the two⁣ ⁣ So how do you fix that?⁣ ⁣ Track EVERYTHING for 1 week.⁣ ⁣ 1. What your eating (even on the weekends )⁣ 2. How much your moving (steps is a good one to use here )⁣ 3. Your morning bodyweight (very important )⁣ ⁣ Once you have all of that data, you can then make adjustments going forward based off the results you get.⁣ ⁣ All you would simply need to do is eat exactly the same things, just a little bit less, and add an extra 2-3k steps on top of what your currently doing.⁣ ⁣ Stick to that for another 1-2 weeks and as if by magic, your weight/fat loss will have started.⁣ ⁣ Thank me later 👍🏼⁣ ⁣ Ash 🦊⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #fatlosshacks #fatlossmadesimple #nutritionmadeeasy #nutrition101 #weightlosshacks #weightlosshabits #eatless #eatlessmovemore #easiersaidthandone #trackyourprogress #gatherdata #makeadjustmentsnotexcuses #findwhatworks #findwhatworksforyou #avengersassemble #itsthetruth #justbeinghonest #dropbodyfat #loseweighteasy #thermodynamics #caloriescount #caloriedeficitdiet #trackyourshit #trackyourfood #getyourstepsin #exercisemore #moveyourbodydaily #couchpotato #sthelierjersey #jerseyci

We dealt with a bunch of changes this morning.⁣ ⁣ New routines, new expectations.... it all felt like a bit too much and I was getting worked up. The kids were accommodating me and being wonderful. Sylas came to give me a hug and kiss and tell me he loved me. He is such a sweet boy and I'm blessed to be his mama. ⁣ ⁣ Happy son's day sweet boy!

Confession: I’ve always been a sucker for a “quick fix.” 👀🤦🏻‍♀️ Ya’ all know this. It’s no secret. I’ve been very transparent with you all on how I’ve struggled with this, while ALSO simultaneously, sabotaging and / or indulging in such “quick fixes.” My preferred methods of “quickies” vary, are broad and have included: - Diets, Deprivation, Etc. (One time I ate <700 a day for two weeks. 😳 #bitchesbetrippin #iambitches ) - Shopping (ohh, the endorphins from a Sephora Haul are unmatched ) - Drinking (duh ) - Emotional binge eating (especially after I got sober ) - Sex (just in my college days- my college friends can attest to my... ummm.. promiscuity #justbeinghonest ) Here is the thing... being sober and my journey of recovery has positioned “wellness” in my life as the ultimate goal. My daily MO. So I am, daily, looking to pivot my mindset AWAY from “quickies” and towards the activities that my mind, body & soul need to properly deal with whatever happens to be triggering the desire for a “quick fix.” Most recently you all watched me promote a product that was marketed as losing “5lbs in 5 days” and, yes, I saw hella success. (Not gonna’ lie, still a great product that I do enjoy ) but the targeting of the “quick fix” mindset and marketing didn’t align with me. So I had to pivot. I had to focus on wellness and not a “product” to make me healthy / skinny / happy / content / etc. My wellness routine focuses on: mindset, nutrition, physical movement, accountability & community. If you also have struggled with quick fixes and want a FREAKING WAY OUT of this hamster wheel, message me, and let’s be accountability partners. 🖤

Tomorrow the whole world is going to be celebrating mamas, and rightfully so. They deserve all the freaking praise.⁣ ⁣ But to the ones who already know that it’s going to be a hard day... sometimes all there is to say is that you’re not alone.⁣ ⁣ If you’ve looked at a pregnancy announcement and yearned for that to be your reality.⁣ ⁣ If you’ve tried for and wanted a baby and it just didn’t happen.⁣ ⁣ If you’ve never had a good relationship with your mom.⁣ ⁣ If you know that motherhood isn’t for you but haven’t felt supported in your decision.⁣ ⁣ If you’ve lost a child.⁣ ⁣ If you’re parenting alone.⁣ ⁣ If you’ve stepped into the role of motherhood unexpectedly. ⁣ ⁣ If you have children and have felt guilty around those who can’t. ⁣ ⁣ If you’ve lost your mom. ⁣ ⁣ You are not alone.

It's my birthday! 🎂 🎁 🎈 What a relief to have a date to mark the passage of time indoors. 😅📆 But seriously, I feel extra lucky to be alive and healthy today, with food in the pantry, clothes on my back, a husband I adore and two cats to keep me on my toes. I will also admit I feel near-constant relief that we decided to wait a little bit longer to have a kid. #JustBeingHonest . I'm a little bummed to be spending this day mostly indoors and away from friends and family, but I'm really looking forward to eating some delicious takeout for dinner later. 😋 I'm also very excited to be teaching my favorite pose, #Chinstand aka #ViparitaShalabasana , in Asana Lab at 5:15PM tonight! (See my stories for info about signup. ) As for the year ahead, my hope is that I get the chance to hug all the people I love whose absence I'm feeling more and more these days, which anyone who knows me knows is a big deal because I am really not much of a hugger. . Thank you all for being a part of my journey here on this platform. I appreciate each and every one of you, whether we’ve been friends for years, you’re a student of mine, you've met me in person, or only know me through this virtual peek into my yoga life. My wish for you all on my birthday is that you eat something indulgent and delicious, because that's my favorite way to celebrate just about any occasion! Now, if I could just figure out a way to get a maple donut... 🧐 . 📸 : my incredibly talented friend @tamalynannphotography

Just sitting here imagining a stadium... Sit down and ponder with me for a second. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Imagine one of the biggest football stadiums... Let’s say Michigan’s “Big House,” filled with 107,601 people... Except these people aren’t cheering because they’re dead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s what COVID-19 has done in the United States, yet we still have so many who think it’s no big deal... Yeah, yeah, we technically haven’t quite hit 107,601 deaths yet, but we’re close and will be there soon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also sit here thinking about how COVID-19 will kill twice as many Americans as the Vietnam War, but in like 1/50th of the time... Yet still so many of us don’t take it seriously. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also sit here thinking about how we may see another peak of fresh cases in a couple weeks—the aftermath of us Americans being too stubborn and proud and bored (or just misinformed ) to set aside our normal Memorial Day activities for one year—just one year! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I sit here thinking about what school will be like next year for my children... How 2 of my 4 will never know what school was like pre-COVID. One won’t even know what the WORLD was like pre-COVID. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also sit here thinking about people who CAN’T BREATHE and about how #BLACKLIVESMATTER . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also sit here thinking about fragile egos and how we Americans can’t face a single goddamn issue without turning it into an unnecessary “us vs them” competition (again, the pride, stubbornness, etc... ). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I sit here thinking about how we often seem to struggle with basic human concepts like respect and empathy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think about all the stupid excuses we pull out of dark places for our failures to respect each other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I sit here thinking maybe I should apologize for this dark, off-brand post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I sit here thinking maybe I’ll go back to being funny or witty or at least happy in my next post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See you then. ✌️

Back to it today 💕 I took a little break from posting yesterday because... honestly, I was just feeling down. I usually *try* to be positive and I like to look on the bright side but 2020 has been an insane year. Seeing the horrible #NewWestminster pier fire on Sunday night, waking up to see that the Sea to Sky Gondola had once again been vandalized, and then seeing that a train went off the rails in Hope, BC - it just kind of stunned me. And it made me sad. 😔 Life has ups and downs. There is so much outside of our control and sometimes the only thing to do is to hit pause and not force positivity if you’re not feeling it. 🤷‍♀️
