Remember the days when you went to your local convenience store every month to pick up your copy of a favorite magazine? Cosmopolitan was my go-to magazine; my guilty pleasure. I had every copy for about 2 years then I realized Cosmo was getting more from me (copious amounts of money) than I was getting from Cosmo (useless knowledge and a ton of ads).
Fast-forward 15 years and we have a whole world of information at our very fingertips. Social media has paved the way for fabulous influencers to share their ideas, tips, tricks and more all in one place. Instagram is a favorite social media platform for me.

#fridaywisdom Too Skinny. Too Fat. Too Short. Too Tall. You are Lazy. You Workout too much. People are always going to label you. It’s how you overcome those labels, that’s what counts. . 6 years later. A hell of a lot stronger physically and mentally. I might not be where I’m but I’m closer than where I was! Little gains are better than no gains. We all have different reasons for starting but we are all on the same path 🙏🏼. Stop giving yourself a hard time when you see someone else’s body you admire. Strive for health and the rest will follow! . #willfindsaway #fitmomof3 #unlikeany #unstoppable #underarmourhijabi #underarmourcanada #underarmourwomen
