Happy St. Paddy’s Day 🍀🍀
While getting ready to go out for a drink last night, I noticed how much tighter these jeans feel around my legs/booty and how strong my arms and shoulders look in this tank top.
Might be surprising, but I couldn’t be happier with either of those realizations. I have been trying to build lean muscle and change my body composition and noticing the small changes and progress I’ve made makes me really proud.
I no longer am in the mindset of shrinking my body. I want it to be strong and healthy. If that means having to go up a jean size, that’s fine with me 🙌🏼😌
Everything I had today! #cheatday what can I say! Anyways, good fast followed by this stuff and then my fast timer went right back on for the rest of the day 👌🏻 currently three hours in. That blizzard was to diiieee for omg. I don’t usually like ice cream but a blizzard always hits the spot lol

So doing this!!! I was planning a full lifestyle reboot starting on Monday. Then I watched @ashbrookedaily story and thought the 5 day detox will be perfection! Tomorrow I will post my goals for this detox and my 2 week reboot. I have only 2 weeks left of my paid leave...and I am so excited for some major self care. Who else is in??? #tiuteam#tiu5daydetox#tiureboot#tiuover40#tiuover45#goaldigger
My Answer: Everybody and they mama.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Real talk, I have been tremendously blessed my entire life. I have had people in my life who genuinely want to see me win and I don't take that for granted.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Starting first with mom dukes, my first teacher, the lady who taught me how to love and be kind and to laugh and to love learning. She is the real MVP. She held me down on an $18,000 annual salary and I never felt like I wanted for anything. The way that she cares for and loves Lyric now makes me weep in gratitude. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My grandma taught me how to be strong. She's the reason I ain't no punk. If you ever meet her, you'll know why. She has no problem speaking her mind. My grandpa taught me to be openminded because everyone has the right to his or her own opinion. They helped to raise me so that I never had to be alone or lacking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my prayers, I always am thankful for Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Washington (may she rest in peace), two of my high school teachers who believed in me, spoke life into me, and expected great things of me. Mrs. Robinson is the reason that I got into college with a full scholarship. In my recommendation letter, she called me "magnanimous" and she told me that she really meant it. I've always tried to live up to that big word. Mrs. Washington always believed in me as a leader and confided in me as a friend. I miss her dearly. I pray that Lyric has teachers just like these two women because they made me see a future different than what I saw everyday growing up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now it's your turn. Comment below and let me know who you are thankful for. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know you're feeling overwhelmed. Use this as a reminder to push through because the world desperately needs what you have to offer💜

☘️ Happy St. Paddy’s my friends! I don’t know about you but my family takes this holiday pretty seriously. My Grandpa Murphy is very proud of our Irish heritage, so we honor it every year with a family dinner of corn beef and cabbage, green snake bread, and chocolate gold coins. Of course I celebrate with the regular St. Pat’s gear— good friends and good beer 🍺
Erin go bragh and have be safe out there folks! ☘️
