#Tiertime twice and home #fitness this week. My preference? Working out with #friends every #workout! @jaworkit and Lisa are great workout buddies! @mscgray you were missed and @mgares7 showed up and showed OUT (while showing me up) in class tonight!! #exercise #workouts #igdaily #instagood #naturalhair #teamnatural #afro #health #healthyliving #healthy

Today was a VERY good day! :) #igdaily #instagood #selfie #teamnatural #naturalhair #afro #face #happy

My #workouts from Thursday, Friday, and Saturday! Yep, after #tiertime (714 calories) I figured why not push to 1,000 #calories #burned? Now, if I could just keep it going… #gym #exercise #fitfam #fitness #selfie #naturalhair #hair #afro #teamnatural #igdaily #instagood #health #healthyliving #healthy #nutrition #Weightlifting #cardio

Peanut Butter Jelly Time! This #smoothie makes me nostalgic for the days when peanut butter jelly sandwiches on NON-gluten free bread were the Bee’s Knees (see what I did there?)!!

My weekend #workouts all in #Indianapolis! @jaylanie and I killed it with our Friday-Sunday #exercise which included riding our bikes, basketball, walking, and #weightlifting. #fitness #fitfam #health #healthyliving #selfie #naturalhair #Juice #juicing #Vegetarian #teamnatural #gym #igdaily #instagood

Happy 4th of July!!! #happy #happy4thofjuly #selfie #naturalhair #teamnatural #instagood #igdaily #4thofjuly #fourthofjuly #holidays #fireworks

Just me, my #uber shirt, and a #motivating message to: Act now. Feel good later. I have NOT been feeling good, and I felt the worst yesterday. But had a good workout Monday and Wednesday and am feeling great (mentally)! Striving to increase my burns! #fitfam #fitness #exercise #selfie #naturalhair #teamnatural #healthy #healthyliving #gym #travel #nutrition #vegetarian

This “cold” does NOT stand a chance! Kale|Ginger|Orange|Spinach|Cucumber|Apples|Lemon|Bee Pollen @TheUrbanJuicer! Yum! #healthy #healthyliving #igdaily #instagood #nutrition #vegan #vegetarian #rawvegan #juice #juicing

My #workout burns from Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. #Weightlifting, cardio, and #tiertime! #Friends + #exercise= FUN!! I had a great time working out with @jaworkit, @sakina1184, and @mscgray! We killed it ladies! #fitness #exercise #workouts #selfie #naturalhair #teamnatural #instagood #igdaily #gym #healthyliving #healthy #health

Oh, Queso! Let’s do this! My #workouts and #greensmoothie from 6/21 and 6/23. Been feeling bummed about my progress and feeling my workouts aren’t frequent enough (3X/wk for the past two weeks). But every journey has its ups and downs. Working hard at my #nutrition and #fitness this week. I have some parties in August I want to show off for! :) #motivation #fitfam #workout #selfie #naturalhair #gym #teamnatural #healthy #healthyliving #health #weightloss

A #recipe I HAD to recreate from the Taste of Music City. Make it #vegetarian by skipping the bay scallops and using pecans and or mushrooms. Make it #vegan by using a vegan dressing. I used Italian. When is #kale NOT good? ;) #igdaily #instagood #nashville #salad #igfood #food #healthy #healthyliving

Taste of Music City! Photo bombs and all… #igdaily #instagood #nashville #couples #Friends

#Juicing this week has helped me to achieve desired results in a short amount of time. It takes a considerable amount of time and effort to complete a #juicefast, but when it comes to my #health and #nutrition it is worth it! #healthy #healthyliving #vegan #rawvegan #vegetarian #fitfam #fitness #exercise #igdaily #instagood #juice

My breakfast and lunch for tomorrow. Ready to get #juice wasted! Left to right: Kale|Apple, Carrot|Apple, Apple|Cucumber. #juicefast #juicing #nutrition #rawvegan #igdaily #instagood #vegan #Vegetarian #fitfam #fitness #healthyliving #healthy #health
