Where do I even start!?
These past few weeks have been kind of a roller coaster for me and things are finally starting to slow down. Let me give you quick insight on the past month. In addition to working full time, I was also working part time at Class Studios. Why pick up a part time? It was my way of getting my foot in the door into the fitness industry, because at the end of the day … it is my passion and what I want to build my career in.
Well during the week, I would go to my full time and then straight to my part time. Mind you I am a whole mom, add working out into the mix, oh and let’s not forget I have a husband too. Put yourself in my shoes and imagine the toll it took on me, both mentally and physically. I ended up being sick for almost 3 weeks and probably only worked out maybe three or four times collectively. Time spent with my husband and Ash was pretty much non existent. I was literally always on the go, there was just no time for me to sleep. This is why I’ve pretty much been missing in action, there was simply no time for me to keep up with creating content, I appreciate those of you checking in on me!!
Something had to give.
That something was my full time job, I had to let it go. It wasn’t even a tough decision whatsoever, just had to discuss it with my husband. Just know the conversation went was I expected, my husband does not agree with my decision. The good thing is he there to support me. Being married, doesn’t mean that we agree on every single thing. Mo and I are very different people, but the most important thing to me is that I have his support.
Being in the environment at Class Studios just made me realize that’s the type of place I want to work at. And then opportunities were literally just coming my way in regards to fitness, so what am I supposed to do? Ignore them? Not this time, not going to do that.
A couple of my family and friends that I talked with about this were like its about time and now it’s time to put in that work. Am I scared, yes … sh*tless. I don’t want to let my family down and most importantly myself.
I’m in this season of finding my sense of self at 30 years old and you know that is actually okay with me. I am finally letting go of other people’s expectations of me. That includes my husband, my family, friends, and even people I don’t know. I’m finally going to do what I am passionate about, the thing that makes me light up and literally fills me up with joy. I’m doing what makes me happy, how many people actually do that?
I am ready for this new phase in my life. I know it was be easy, but LFG!
Thank you all for taking the time to read this. Thank you all for your patience. I really do plan on being consistent and getting more content out for you guys. Thank you for tagging along on this crazy journey of mine.
Let this new month be a month of blessings and happiness for you.
Have you ever went after something that maybe your spouse, family, and friends didn’t agree with? Or just went after something you were scare of doing? How did it work out for you?
Proud of you and you keep pushing! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you so so much for reading!🤍
I usually have my husbands support but not my parents’. Just different generations I guess.
I get that support from my spouse always. Thanks for this one
Thanks for sharing! You are a motivation! I do congratulate you on your new endeavors 🙂
You’re obviously very brave. I bet your bravery will pay off!
You go girl! It’s not an easy decision and not one many make. Keep us posted on the journey, although you’re going to rock it.
So glad you were able to shed the mental weight of the full time (not to mention the time aspect)! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for no more sick time – that’s the worst!

Ready to give it my full attention! My husband is very supportive and I am a mother of 3 wonderful children, they definitely keep me going and I want to keep up with them. Congratulations on your decision! You’re going to be great !
