Sometimes I wish life would just be simple, care-free and wrapped up neatly with a bow. But alas, it doesn’t work that way and we shouldn’t want it to. In my experience, when one door closes another opens, even when it seems impossible at the moment. When I first started writing my book, I was worried people would not be interested in what I had to say but through all the twists and turns, it brought me to where I am today and I wouldn’t trade my journey for the world! Keep going, friend!

“Attitude is a choice.
Happiness is a choice.
Optimism is a choice.
Kindness is a choice.
Giving is a choice.
Respect is a choice.
Whatever choice you make makes you.

I won’t promise you fast results. Heck you’re probably gonna be a little frustrated on how slow things go sometimes. I will ask you a lot of questions. A lot. My favourites are “how’s that going for you?” And “what do you think you can do to make it just a little bit better?” But I’ll be there for you. I’ll be there to remind you that in the sea of fast results and people just seeking to lose a lot of weight in a short time and here you are struggling, that you’re not alone. I’ll be there to hold your hands and give you a sweaty hug when you simply feel like giving up. Cry if you need to but look we’re gonna figure this out together. We’re gonna get comfortable with the naysayers and people who never believed in you. We’ll be kind to them even if they are saying harsh things.
And then we’ll get you results. Before you know it, you’ll see your clothes going from XXL to XL to L. Before you know it your bra size is gonna go from 46 to 44 to 42. Before you know it, you realise you can lift 20kg of overhead presses and do 21 burpees all in the same session.
And that’s when you know that all those tears you cry, all those doubts you have, all those questions you had to answer me so that I can help you just a little bit better everyday - is all worth it.
It takes a generic 21-day (insert diet) program to get you to lose weight. Meal replacement shakes perhaps. Or some fast crazy dieting.
But it takes a customised program, patience, persistence and I gotta say this with no shame at all, a coach, to help you see life, weight loss and nutrition on a different perspective. To help you realise your greatest potential. To help you believe that you are made out of so much more strength and resilience and most importantly patience than you can ever imagine.
Here’s one of my clients combining my coaching and personal training at @1habitstudio in her first 12 weeks. She’s on to achieving greater things as we speak. I am proud of what I do so they can be way prouder of what they get. Happy Monday. #1habitatatime

At the end of college, in the midst of the end of my first relationship, I remember thinking
“Will I be able to find someone who not only loves me but supports, encourages and celebrates who I am?”
A guy whose confidence isn’t thrown off by my ambition?
Someone who isn’t intimidated by my big dreams?”
I think you know the answer to these questions. They are a resounding “Yes.”
I know there are many young women who follow my page and ladies - this message is for you.
Do not settle. Do not. You have big dreams. Dreams you can have.
Spend time, a lot of time, finding out who you are. It may seem like you “should” have found someone by now - it’s bullshit. The right person, the person who deserves you, is worth the wait.
If my heart was never shattered prompting a move across the country for med school - I would have never left the comfortable, found who I was and met the man who believed in my dreams as much as I did.
Feeling grateful for the guy who makes me exponentially better - in every way possible. In ways I never knew existed.
As John’s dad always says.... the kind of partnership where 1 + 1 = 3. Each unit alone is whole, but better......together ♥️
Atrofimdagi ba'zi insonlar maqsadlarim haqida so‘rashganda, ularga nimalarni xohlashimni aytsam ular ustimdan kulganday bo‘lishadi. Hammaga o‘z fikrimni bildirsam, "realist bo‘lgin sen xohlaydigan narsalarni iloji yo‘q, seni qo‘lingdan kelmaydi, faqat ota-onasi boylar, puli bor, tanishi borlarni qo‘lidan keladi" degan gaplarni eshitaman. Lekin o'z orzusiga yetgan insonlar bilan gaplashsam, ular ijobiy fikr bilan javob qaytarishadi. Nima bo'lgan taqdirda ham meni barmog'i bilan ko'rsatib salbiy fikrlaydiganlarga, men ham qaysidir barmog'imni ko'rsatgim keladi. Hamma o'zini ishini bilib qiladi, men haqimda salbiy, yoki ijobiy fikrlashlaridan qat'iy nazar men ularni umuman eshitmayman. #hustle#workethic#positivity#optimism#dreambig#maqsad#orzu#muvaffaqiyat#qadam#shijoat
I realized that in order to get a jump on the winter blues I need to start now. By the time it happens it is such a struggle to climb up out of the depths of despair. So this year I’m starting by booking a trip somewhere warm in February, taking my sunlight lamp to work, adding movement and going outdoors to my weekly to do list, booking a session in an infrared sauna and making sure I reach out to people. Any other suggestions?
It is we who are so grateful to be a part of your lives, triumphs and joys. To contribute in an all-natural, life-affirming way is the highest honor, responsibility and unbridled joy. Thank you.
