Are You Fit To Lead?

Angela Basset is such a SLAY Queen🔥!!! For many years, I’ve always admired her as an amazing actress, director, producer, wife, and mom. What has really drawn me is her dedication to how she takes care of herself. She is 63 and stunningly graces so many stages. As I do, she believes in eating smartly and exercising vigorously which leads me to my question for you today. Are You Fit To Lead? In my opinion, being fit to lead is one of the secret weapons to effective leaders

Unveiling Your Identity Is A Critical Link To Success

Did you know that our identity, how we see ourselves, is the most important factor that drives our success or failure? Our mindset is the most important piece of equipment in our career, in our business, and in our life as a whole. So, what is our identity? Our identity is the sum of our thoughts and beliefs about ourselves: how we look, our capabilities, our intentions, our expectations, our decisions, and our memories. Our identity will determine how we show up in this worl

SLAYin' Your Health and Fitness Goals

When I was growing up, I ate a lot. I mean a lot! I remember eating a tin full of potato chips chasing them down with Kool-Aid after I came home from school, then eat dinner and go back for seconds all the time. I was the fat, funny girl in high school and laughed off the way people teased me about my weight. I was a band geek in high school and one day everyone had to get their height and weight for new uniforms and the lady who weighed me announced “200 pounds” so loudly t


Y'all, I can't believe I was able to serve in the United States Air Force for 30 years...three whole decades. On a whim and quite frankly, out of desperation to do something different, I left Kokomo, Indiana for Basic Military Training on August 4th, 1991, and officially retired on September 1st, 2021. I was stationed at 10 military bases, deployed five times (one of them was living and working in the jungles of Vietnam for 3 months), went on countless temporary duty assignme

Done With Making New Year Resolutions!

Don’t Make New Year’s Resolutions! Pick One Word Instead. When the New Year rolls around, millions of people from around the world make New Year’s Resolutions. “This is the year I’m going to get fit!” “I want to lose weight.” “My resolution is to save money and travel the world.” “I’m going to spend more time with my family.” Of all the resolutions made each New Year, only 8% of people actually achieve them.1 One of the secrets to making a good resolution is to keep it simple

Do You Have the Right Mindset, the Right Habits and the Right Routine to #SLAY your goals?

Many of us look to reasons outside of ourselves to rationalize why we struggle to achieve our goals. Internal and subconscious emotional blocks like fear, lack of confidence and not truly believing that we are worth the fees that we are charging, may slow us down and hold us back more than any external challenges. Consider this as your approach to SLAYin’ your goals. Start with understanding and cultivating a growth-focused, healthy mindset and control your narrative to in

How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything

Jess Sims is one of my go-to Peloton instructors and she says, "How you do anything is how you do everything" at least once in every one of her classes. And she's absolutely right! Think about it. You are what you do. Every time you act, you create a habit, even if it’s a small one. Aristotle once said, "we are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act but a habit.” Everything you do is practice for who you are becoming. Every action you take is a vote for t

Brand Yourself and Live In Your Brand

When I started living authentically, I noticed a shift in my environment, in my thoughts and in my actions. Showing up being your true authentic self is freeing to the soul. There are times when I have second guessed myself on messaging and living in my #SLAY mantra. There were so many people who didn't get it, talked badly behind my back or thought I was a complete joke. I can remember a time where I stopped talking about the meaning of SLAY for a short period of time.

20,000 STEPS

Everyday, my goal is to get in 20,000 steps in before I go to bed. Yes, 20K steps! Typically, I get in 8-10K steps in during my workouts. My workouts consist of high intensity training on the treadmill, on the bicycle and or slinging weights. My go to sites for my workouts are the Peloton app and Heather Robertson. I downloaded the Peloton app on my phone a few years ago and it has changed my life! The app has amazing instructors offering strength, running, walking, yog
