Have you ever looked at your BMI? Well don’t it’s depressing! Especially if you are over 20 💕 😂💯🙈🙌🏾 and I’m definitely not 20! It’s amazing how age and weight will sneak up on you! But it’s also amazing how good it feels to act on the determination to take care of yourself again. Especially when you are a woman. We have so many reasons to put ourselves on the back burner. .
I’m not shaming you if you have not made yourself a priority in a long while! In fact!! I 100 percent get you!! But from the girl who finally crossed over! And is making zero excuses to finally take care of herself! Mind body and spirit! I beg you!! Sacrifice the effort to put yourself first. Make yourself a “must do” on your daily to do list. .
I’m down 5 lbs of mom guilt! And have gained 20 lbs of... I’m totally worth it!! Because I’m finally over what the scale is telling me and I’m so grateful for what my eyes are telling me when I’m staring back at myself. Your worth that too!!!
Happy Tuesday friends! Let’s insert ourselves and our dreams back on our priority lists starting today!

Bakersfield, California--- A 21-year-old McDonald's employee has been arrested after her managers reportedly saw a video of her tampering with food meant for a police officer.
#TatyanaHargrove , who works at a #McDonalds in Bakersfield, Calif., was arrested Saturday after the restaurant's management alerted police of the alleged crime, KBAK-TV reported. Officers who reviewed footage of the incident, which occurred on Nov. 12, said Hargrove's actions appeared intentional.
It's unclear exactly what Hargrove allegedly did to the officer's order, but she was charged with one count of tampering with food, which under California law involves "willfully mingling any poison or harmful substance with any food, drink, medicine or pharmaceutical product."
The 21-year-old has a longstanding history with Bakersfield police, as she recently lost a lawsuit that alleged excessive force against two of the department's officers. That suit, which stems from a 2017 incident, claimed that the officers mistook Hargrove for a male suspect, which led to her being thrown to the ground, punched in the face and bitten by a police dog.
Both officers' accounts differed from Hargrove's, and last month a jury ruled in the department's favor, the Bakersfield Californian reported. Still, Bakersfield Police Chief Lyle Martin apologized to the 21-year-old's family and said his department would strive to do better.
Authorities have not provided the identity of the officer involved in the alleged tampering case; however, they have confirmed they were a member of the Bakersfield Police Department.
Jim Abbate, the owner of the Bakersfield McDonald's franchise, released a statement condemning the possible crime, telling Fox News it was a "disturbing incident." ( @aol) •FOLLOW ME FOR MORE STORIES👣
