True transformation? That sh*! takes place in your soul. There is no doubt in my mind, that learning how to voluntarily endure being uncomfortable and work as hard as I could, day after day, during my four contest preps, has been my saving grace over the last month. I have dealt with health issues and personal crisis in the past and usually have also endured pretty significant anxiety and panic attacks along with it. This round, despite pain, not being able to work, loss of movement, and a general overnight change of lifestyle, I stayed amazingly calm and grounded...no panic attacks and only mild anxiety that was directly related to acute moments during the illness. I truly have looked at it like I have looked at prep...I get up each day with a goal and engage in eating and activities that will most likely have the most positive outcome for my goals. Just like prep, some days have been better than others and some days my body does not do exactly what I want it to, but overall I am seeing progress❤️ Maybe most of us get into this sport to change the outside appearance of our bodies, but how I’ve changed on the inside has been the most incredible transformation of all❤️ #transformationtuesday picture from August 2017 #twoweeksout#healing#reflectingback#lookingahead#radicalacceptance#soulgrowth#npc#npcbikini#npcbikiniathlete#npcmasters#igotgoals#justkeepswimming#fitmom#momto4#fitover40#maturefit#momswholift#bodybuilding#soulbuilding#neverevergiveup

✨ I added fresh parsley to my butternut squash soup the other night ✨
Adding fresh herbs to your meals could seriously take its healing powers to new levels! Parsley is filled with various B vitamins, in addition to A, C, and K vitamins. It is a highly reminder Ali zing food which is amazing for those low in trace minerals! It alkalizes all of the body systems which makes it the most beneficial to fight acidosis!! All-purpose pathogen fighter, replenishes you when you are depleted and an adrenal booster! 🌿 When used appropriately and frequently, parsley can drive out toxins, alkaline the body and replenish trace minerals (of which most of us are deficient!) 🔛 Time to add some Parsley!
Celebrating Ghana! I look back and think about the number of times well meaning fellow Ghanaians attempted to discourage me from pursuing acting especially since according to them I shouldn't waste the airplane ticket, tuition and opportunity to be an international student overseas. Thank God for defiance in the face of naysayers. Today I celebrate @anafricancitytv's 6 year anniversary with my castmates and crew. A chance I took after seeing an audition post on Facebook. Nicole, Thank YOU for taking a chance on me #neverevergiveup#ghana#IamAfricanandIamanactor#wecandoboth#wecandoitall#AnAfricanCity 🇬🇭 #sdg ・・・Repost
Six years ago, we finished filming a pilot webisode of #AnAfricanCity . It didn't do well. However, we did not give up. We pushed through. We believed in ourselves and in the purpose behind the project. After two successful seasons, we have now closed a TV deal. The message is: keep believing!

Some may wonder why I post much on LEXI or SFS or Jacob being so anointed.... it is simply to PRAISE GOD and remind so many others that HE IS GOOD. HE IS A HEALER. HE IS ALMIGHTY. And HE IS TO BE GLORIFIED. The things I’ve heard in my 40 years “your mom is dying (twice)” “cancer” “deafness” “divorce” “adhd” ... I have ONE parent, no grandparents alive...but all of those were trials and IM STILL STANDING! IM HAPPY! My children are miracles! So yes, I LIVE OUT LOUD. I live BOLDLY. But it’s because of God that I am still standing y’all—so I will always glorify HIM! #Thankful#Blessed#Praise#LiveOutLoud#BeYOU#GodMadeYouInHisPERFECTImage#Ephesians#NeverEverGiveUp#Faith#Thanksgiving
Less than a week, and I complete my program of the past 60 days!
I've attempted this program a few times in the past... the most memorable is during my mom's battle with cancer in early 2016.
I did the workouts, but nutrition was lacking.
I tried again late 2016, but couldn't stick with it.
And then again early 2017. But it beat me up, and I couldn't hang.
Proud to say I have rocked this attempt!
Sometimes, if things don't workout, you try try again.
I am a fighter.
I don't wallow in self pity.
We all have stories.
Some are downright heartbreaking and unfathomable.
But the coolest thing?
We all have the power to RISE.
And today I RISE, STRONGER than I started almost 60 days ago.
We all have the power to say HOLD UP, and re-write our middles.
We all know how it's gonna end, but damned if I won't go there fighting for me, every step of the way 💪🏼👊🏼 #neverevergiveup#stronger#chiseling thanks to @autumncalabrese for the inspiration and awesome chiseling today!!
It's never too late to pick yourself up back up again. No matter how defeated and weakened you feel, there will always be an opportunity to turn it around as long as you keep fighting for better days. It won't be easy, but it will definitely worth it. Don't give up on yourself. 💪
I may not be the fastest or the best out there. But I’m a runner who loves the freedom of going for a good run. Running has being a huge outlet for me, especially since I’ve first started nearly 4 years ago. After a stressful day I would always go out for a good run and come back feeling like I’m ready to achieve anything. Running has also been something that would be a release for my anxiety due to that I’m doing something for myself and doing something that I love. #oncearunneralwaysarunner#neverevergiveup#runtobehappy#runtobefree
