Since 2/16/12 Hercules has been documented as my Emotional Support Animal. My counselor at the time suggested I get a service animal to help with my transition. I was leaving a mentally & physically abusive relationship, and read up on service animals. Hercules has saved my life more times than I can recall. He gets me out of the house daily, and helps me interact with people. On days that arthritic pain has me immobilized, he comforts me, and LITERALLY pushes me to get up. Two days ago, I went grocery shopping. Yesterday, I wasn't able to get out, because my entire body hurt from doing that ONE chore. This year, I had a neighbor tell me that he's jealous of my "lifestyle." Lol, he said that he wished he could be at home, and live how I do. Ha! I wouldn't wish PTSD, anxiety, arthritis or poverty on anyone! It isn't always sweet. Being disabled isn't a luxury. These were the cards I was dealt, and I choose to live a life of service to others. The next several weeks will be interesting. I'm jumping in with both feet to my goal of traveling, and being a service to others. It won't be glamorous, or for profit. It's my calling. Thanks so much for continually pushing me to reach my GOALS! I want to make you all proud. Let's do this. We're one week away from the fundraiser, then a week after that I want to be mobile, and hit the road. No plan B. Hercules 8th birthday is tomorrow! Love you Bubba, you're my best friend ❤️ Thanks for reading 💯🤟🏾♥️ #herculespuggleton #hercules #pug #puggle #pugglesofinstagram #hugtour #disability #disabilityawareness #dvsurvivor #domesticviolence #arthritis #ptsdawareness

  • Treated myself to this grande PSL with almond milk today because I freaking earned it!!!⁣
⁣
Today I had to do a presentation for my class and honestly it was freaking awesome! I’m not gunna lie... because obviously if you watched my stories you heard what I said... but I was nervous as hell! I have always hated presenting and when I registered to go back to school this was the one thing I was dreading the most! Back when I got my first degree I would literally drop a class if 1. I found out there was a presentation and 2. If it wasn’t a class I really needed to be taking (#nolie). I obviously got to a point where I couldn’t avoid them but I don’t care how many time Ive gotten up there, its never gotten easier for me. ⁣
⁣
This morning before class I kept pep talking myself and telling myself “you can do this” “you’re going to be amazing” “no one is judging you” and as calm as I was on the outside... my insides had another plan. I spent the most of my morning on the toilet because I so nervous. Its honestly so silly! I wish I could kick this feeling!! So before I left the house I popped 2 Imodium (so I could hold it all together... quite literally) to calm my stomach.⁣
⁣
My partner and I signed up to be the first to present which is soooo unlike me but I’m happy we did because it was done and over with. While I was up there though, I was straight sweating (#dripdrip). Sat back down at my desk after it was over and my back and stomach felt like I just jumped in a pool!⁣
⁣
Heres the difference though between the me of today and the me of 6-7 years ago.... I would have never pep talked myself like that before a presentation. I used to be so negative towards myself and so concerned with what my peers were going to thinking of me. Am I sweating too much, do I sound like an idiot and so on! But today I went into it with nothing but a positive attitude and although my body still had the nerves flowing, my mind was clear and ready to crush it! ⁣
⁣
So yes... I earned this $6 latte today because I kicked butt and I’m so proud of where I have come! I cant wait to see where I am in another 6-7 years from now! ✨

  • Mmm, “Nachos” for lunch?!...Yes, please!
It’s a chilly, uh chili Fall day!
😉👍🏻🍂🌶
I’m over here warming up as I enjoy these delicious nachos made with vegetarian chili over multigrain chips, topped with shredded cheddar cheese, diced onion and jalapeños!
- Can you believe I eat delicious food like this and I have lost weight?  Yep, over forty pounds!  And, I don’t feel like I’m on a restricted diet either, I call it a lifestyle...
I love Nutrisystem because I can eat foods that I really enjoy and that are delicious, and I continue to keep the weight off!  For over a year now!😉👍🏻😁
I combined a @nutrisystem dinner-(vegetarian chili) with my snack-(garlic snack rounds) to create these yummy nachos, and I even got some extra veggies in the mix!
•
Nutrisystem helped me lose the weight, it can help you too!
- Expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week.

  • Loving myself. What does loving one self really mean?
Self-love may take the form of relaxing hot showers, calming baths, scented candles, enjoying a cup of coffee while reading your favorite book, finding clothes you like, treating yourself to good food.
But self-love isn’t really just about pampering yourself.
Is loving ourselves being able to look in the mirror for once without criticising our own bodies? Is loving ourselves being able to be happy for both yourself and others when we achieve success? Does loving ourselves involve speaking and thinking kindly of ourselves?
This is the truth: self-love is not just a pretty physical process. For many of us, we need to learn how to conquer and keep our demons in check. Acceptance of the reality of what we face would be the first step. After acceptance, we then need to tackle both the ups and the downs before we can truly move forward towards change. Trying to suppress what we feel may seem like a solution in the moment — but the problem may grow bigger than what it originally is in the long run if it wasn’t addressed.
Is there a way to really truly love ourselves 100%? Maybe, maybe not. As judgmental as we can be about others, many of us have ourselves as our own worst critic.
I’m going to be honest: I’m still struggling in the process of truly loving myself. There are days where I’m able to genuinely laugh with my friends, while there are also days where I can barely muster a smile. Although I do have moments where I have felt genuinely, it does not discount the weight I feel on my shoulders once I have to face my thoughts. I feel especially bitter and frustrated about the person that I become on the days I feel consumed by my own darkness. In those moments, I question who I am and the parts of me that I have lost.
One day I hope you will be able to love yourself for who you are and that you are proud of the progress that you have made.
That one point in your life when you felt shrouded by the darkness? Guess what? You learned to light your own flame. Who knows, you may become a guiding light for many others going through their own dark tunnels too.

  • Pesas para mujeres😯?: Una de las razones por las cual muchas mujeres se mantienen alejadas del gym es por el miedo a convertirse en gigantes o tener cuerpo de hombre.
🏋️
Añadir ejercicios de pesas a las rutinas del gimnasio permite incrementar la fuerza y la definición muscular, pero sin ganar volumen.
🏋️
Para ganar volumen a través de ejercicios de pesas las mujeres necesitarían tener 10 o 30 veces más hormonas de las que tienen, por lo que sin un suplemento hormonal adicional es imposible de que las mujeres se conviertan en gigantes. Se ganarán tonificación y definición muscular.
🏋️
Conociendo eso,  aqui estan los beneficios de las pesas:

1. Quemas Grasa
2. Ganas músculo pero sin parecer un gigante.
3. Reduces el riesgo de lesionarse
4. Te hace más fuerte
5. Rinde más
6. Duerme más
7. Tiene una actitud más positiva
🏋️
🏋️
Nota: Dale sin miedo a las pesas💥 un poquito de Ayer!

  • Today I finished a 100 work out program.... Before I posted my results I went into a big spill on how they “weren’t that great” That I need to improve my nutrition and they will be better and that’s why you can’t see my results.... After I looked at the picture, I started putting arrows, feeling like I needed the arrows to point out the changes in my body; for others to see. 
Then it hit me, I needed the arrows for me to see.... Well, 🖕🏻 Mean Girl! I crushed these 100 work outs, nutrition on point or not! I made progress towards my goals and I was letting my mean girl tell me I didn’t DO ENOUGH! I saw my change, in my strength, in my abilitiy to finally jump and do burpees! I saw my change in my clothes and the way I FEEL! 
What is your mean girl telling you you’re not enough at? Maybe you need to take a closer look.... cuz I am sure you’re crushing it too! And tell your mean girl or boy, 🖕🏻! #bekind #bekindtoyourself #crushedit #takingbackmyhealth #iamworthit #iamworththeeffort #transformation #myjourney #followmyjourney #strongnotskinny #healthynotskinny #selflove #selfcare #meangirl
