I'm providing a free training session to the first three people that can guess how many nicknames I have. If you can guess one of them other than (NayNay) I'll also assist you with grocery shopping, provide a meal plan, or assist with food prep. (You can choose one of those). I'm in the Hampton Roads area and I can meet you in either Va Beach or Norfolk. So email me at if interested.

Ask For What's Yours

As a woman, you're not just supposed to sit in the corner and look pretty. Although, you may be the weaker sex you have the power to accomplish just as many things as a man. Remember, you will never be a man but you still have the ability to the get the job done. Which means you have to learn how to allocate your resources.

Never depend on a man without having anything for yourself. Why, because if he leaves you will have nothing for yourself. Have a vision of your own. Know how to take care of and how to support yourself. How can you support your future spouse if you don't know how to do anything for yourself? Perhaps, you may never marry. Will you just forever wait and feel sorry for yourself.

For the most part, I have always gone after what I wanted. If you don't ask, you won't get it. At this point in my life, I would rather learn from the mistakes of others. Therefore, I obtain knowledge from those that have already did or are doing what I aspire to do. I'm very observant and I apply what I learn to my life.

It is very important for young girls and young women to have strong male figures in their lives. I have been blessed to have a wonderful father and wonderful uncles that have supported me and encouraged me along the way. I'm making a point to concentrate on the strong men in my life as they encourage me to be the best woman that I can be. Only a man can truly tell a woman how other men are so that they aren't taken advantage of.

Also, strong male role models show a young girl or a young woman what she should expect from any man that she decides to entertain in her life. The men in my life have showed me that anything worth having requires hard work. More importantly, they have taught me the importance of family and what it means to be there for one another. They didn't just say this and that but they actually followed through with actions. A true leader doesn't just tell a person what they should be doing, but also shows them.

This message is for all the men out there. Be there for your daughters, nieces, sisters, and cousins. They are looking for a role model. They need you!!!! Teach them the ropes, instill them with knowledge.

To the young girls and young ladies out there, Know Your Worth. Don't let the fact that you're a woman stop you from being great. Build your empire with or without a man.

Living Proactively

A year ago (March 8th, 2014), I started my vegan journey after watching a film called "Forks Over Knives." The film impacted me greatly. Mainly because I had already lost three relatives to cancer. The film talked about a plant based diet and how it helped improve serious health conditions.

I knew from there that I had to make a change. However, I was already leading a healthy lifestyle so it wasn't terribly difficult for me to make the transition. It was really exciting because this was something major. I didn't even know a vegan or a vegetarian at the time. I just jumped out there.

I choose to become a vegan for better health. "Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, as well as following an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of sentient animals." That's the official definition of veganism. However, during the past year I did take vitamin d supplements that contained gelatin and I do use honey.  Recently, I stopped taking the supplements. So technically, I'm a vegan that uses/consumes honey. Other than that, I do not knowingly consume animal products in my diet.

I have learned so much about nutrition and health during this time. When you eat right and eat healthy, there's really no need to count calories.  You can eat freely. If you're interested in what I eat as a vegan, check out one of my previous post So What Do You Eat?

The greatest feeling is being able to help others lead healthier lives because of my decision to better my life. I have been through a lot lately and I truly believe that my lifestyle has aided in keeping me strong and giving me the energy to get whatever I need to get accomplished.

I don't try to persuade others to become vegan. I just want others to focus on leading healthier lives. Live proactively. There are so many health conditions that are caused by what we eat and can be prevented if we are just willing to change our lifestyles. The choice is yours and I'm here to help you along the journey.

If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask below. Love and blessings to you all!!!!
