I used to blame others for what was happening in my life. I would ask myself “why is this happening to me, what did I do?” I felt powerless and like a constant victim of my life. Then one day, I woke up and realized that when I blamed someone or something else, I had no power to change anything. So I started taking ownership where I could and my life began to change.
Many of us want to change or experience a change in our lives, but we aren’t willing to look at our responsibility for…..
Let me start by start by asking you a question, “Have you been feeling overwhelmed by all the information that is out there?” Well I was and it was hard to make sense of what was right for me, who was the expert I should listen too? Eventually, all of it ran together and sounded the same……. So, I disconnected, unsubscribed and tuned out almost everyone. Maybe you can relate……
Boxing holds no judgment or grudges, it is a place where you test your skill, speed, power and agility. When you are in the ring you aren’t really fighting your opponent, you are battling the stories you tell yourself, the stories of whether you are good enough or strong enough, or even smart enough to get though this next round. Boxing is like everyday life, you get knocked down, you get back up and if not you’re out. Failure happens, success happens and no matter whether you win or lose, you leave all your blood, sweat and tears in the ring…..
Back in September 2014, I wrote my story and shared it with everyone receiving my emails. Then I posted it on my website to share with the world, to take ownership of my story, who I was and how that has lead me to who I am today. Then several months ago, my website got hacked and I lost two very important blogs, this being one of them. I got the problem fixed right away however, that data was lost…. It was like the universe was conspiring to force me to share my story again…..
When I decided to add CLEAR to the 2015 reading list for the Beautiful Knockout Book Club, I had no idea how my life was about to change. And there was no way my friend and author of CLEAR, Annick Magac, would have been able to know the depth of CLEAR’s transformational impact on the direction of my life. She is not a psychic; she is an author, interior designer, health and fitness coach and a woman who……
When I was 6, 7, and 8 life seemed so much easy and I had so much fun. I didn’t have all the worries of my adult self. In fact, some of my biggest worries were around what and who I would be playing with and what was to eat. As I got older and into my teens all I wanted to do was be recognized and treated like an adult. I became self conscious of what people thought of me and would hid my true feelings about things and try not to be to smart, to funny, to creative…..

Recently I attended a Radiance Retreat with a good friend of mine and I have to say, it was pretty amazing. It was a two day event in Venice Beach in January and the weather was so perfect that I spent a day on the beach in my bikini. It was awesome that I was able to head out early and spend the day with a friend on the beach just getting back in touch with my soul. For me the ocean helps cleanse my soul and keeps me…..
I recently watched an amazing video from Erin Brown and have to say that it was inspiring. She talked about not taking things personal which is something we all struggle with whether it is getting angry at the person in traffic who cut us off or our partner forgetting a special day or “not saying the right thing.” The fact is we all take things personally and it has been something I have been working on. Here is the link so you can…..
I know our name, Beautiful U Fitness University, is long and can be difficult to remember, well at least that is what I have heard. So why then would I have came up with that name? Well let me tell you, I was driving one day and it just came to me (I do my best thinking when I am driving, maybe you can relate). I wanted a name that encompassed the whole mind body connection and it seemed to fit because when I hear…..
