Six years ago, taking a pic I had never planned to share, because I honestly felt the worst I’d ever had. The truth is, leading up to this moment, I’d done a whole lot of wishing to feel strong, confident, and healthy in mind/body, but, not a whole lot of working (i.e.: I’d done literally nothing about it). I wasted far 𝘵𝘰𝘰 𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘺 𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘴 scrolling social media waiting to “feel” inspired.....! 😳 Gang, the motivation isn’t coming. It really only starts, when YOU do. I stalked my mentor on Instagram for 𝘴𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘯 𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘨 𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘩𝘴 before I ever even considered finally asking myself, 𝘞𝘩𝘺 𝘕𝘖𝘛 𝘮𝘦? Saying YES to changing unhealthy habits when I felt my lowest wasn’t easy, but, it was 𝐞𝐱𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐥𝐲 the effort I DESERVED, and has lead to over six years of feeling my healthiest. If you’re open to dialing up the self-care and being surrounded by rad babes focused on the same, 𝘤𝘭𝘪𝘤𝘬 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘬 𝘪𝘯 𝘮𝘺 𝘐𝘎 𝘉𝘪𝘰 + 𝘧𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮 for my 𝐒𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐥 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐜𝐚𝐦𝐩— cuz we’re ready to lock arms and get to WERK, with you. 💜 I've just gotta ask: How long are you going to stalk the person who inspires you before you realize YOU can inspire YOURSELF? Why not 𝐘𝐎𝐔, too?
😭The first guests in our new home are 🌟two Queens who raised me— My Mommy and my Zia!!! They take pictures with flowers, hug trees, pick seashells, and wander-in-wonder when they travel.... Clearly, I belong to them. 😂🌈🌿 My aunt has been here once before— but it’s my mom’s FIRST EVER visit to Vancouver!!! 🎉😭 I moved here from Montreal four years ago, so finally showing her my fav spots has been so special. I’m finding myself EXTRA GRATEFUL for coaching this week. For their visit, I‘m still sweating + working in mornings, but I’m looooving hard on the FREEDOM that being an online coach gives me to design my work schedule. So, I’m taking afternoons OFF✌🏼 to be here, with them, in their one week here. 🏔Sightseeing, 🌻sunflowers, 🐚seashells. Just because, I’m the boss, and I said so. Being rich isn’t about having a lot of money. It’s about having time to do things you love. And I will remember not asking ANY boss for permission to ‘please have time off’ to be here with them on their trip, FOR-EVER. I am so thankful I never gave up or listened to anyone who said this would never work. I even remember 6 years ago, when I signed up and told them— all these two ever did was support me. 💜 I would not trade the years of this hard freaking work to get here, for 👏🏼the 👏🏼entire 👏🏼world. #HustleHardWithHeart #WhyNotYou
👑𝐓𝐚𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐬𝐪𝐮𝐚𝐝. The babes who hype you up, celebrate your highs, fix your crown in those lows, and who see and honour your light — whether they are near or far. 👑 𝘞𝘦 𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐞, 𝘵𝘰𝘨𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳. ☀️I am equally thankful for this entire online community. We may not know each other in person, but damn, ladies, you inspire me. We’ve got this Celebrate Eachother culture DOWN. 🙌🏼🎉💫Thank YOU for the light that you share here every single day!💫 👑Via @bossbabe.inc
We still have boxes, nicknacks, and other items that haven’t been organized yet. Yesterday, a few storage boxes, labels, and rearranging sorted this whole office pile out! 🎉🙌🏼 But, it reminded me not to get so stressed worrying about our new place not being perfect. We moved 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 9 days ago, and at this point, all we really need to do is simply 𝐞𝐧𝐣𝐨𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞... Wait. Isn’t that what we should all be doing in life, all the time, 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘸𝘢𝘺? 🧐 Yesterday I was hustling so hard to clean this house, before my mom and aunt arrived for their visit from Montreal. I was soooo excited 🤩 But, I let myself get worked up about the busy work schedule I had, and the fact that we still had stuff everywhere.... Nobody cares about the stuff. The people closest to you don’t care if your house is perfect or insanely organized. Your loved ones walk into your house and feel like home because YOU are there. Your inner circle loves you, and just cares that you are happy, healthy, and safe, and present with them. Don’t forget to love yourself along the way, too. 𝘔𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘢𝘭𝘭. 😘 #NewHomeJourney
Growing up, my biggest obsession were 𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐬. As a child, I would knock door-to-door around my neighbourhood (to my poor parents’ sheer horror when I was missing from the front lawn), asking each household if they had “any CATS I could play with.”🙈🤣 I regret nothing, and honestly, nothing’s changed. I’m a grown ass adult and I 𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘭𝘭 want to meet everyone’s cats. My King Coconut is the 𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐥 light of my life. I’ve experienced motion sickness for my entire life, but, 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐲 just discovered these motion sickness bracelets (see pic) last year!! Now, I don’t travel anywhere without them— Not even car rides. I’m born and raised in Montreal, and I moved to Vancouver four years ago. I believe a Harry Potter or a Marvel movie marathon sounds like an absolutely EPIC night. OBSESSED. I’ve had the same two best friends since I was 9. @lovetripping & @tanyacaresani have been by my side through e v e r y t h i n g. I’m definitely an 𝐚𝐦𝐛𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐭. It’s a combo of extrovert and introvert tendencies. I’ve always loved art. I taught myself how to draw, and, Bob Ross taught me how to paint. Some kids got excited about Saturday morning cartoons..... I got excited about Bob’s show every Sunday afternoon. I’m fascinated by gemstones & crystals, and I enjoy learning about them! I dyed my hair purple four years ago. I didn’t want to forever wonder WHAT it would look and feel like— so, I went for it! Never went back to brunette. 🤣 I’ve had SO many amazing conversations in my IG Stories these last few weeks and wanted to share just a few things about me with you, too!! 👇🏼What is one random fact about 𝐘𝐎𝐔? 👇🏼Share it in the comments below.👇🏼 (Also— do we have anything in common)?
🔥Making my own rules and working these hump day vibes on a Sunday with weights and kicks.🔥🍑 I spent the better part of this Sunday afternoon sitting on my 🍑, sending emails to babes to register for my September virtual Bootcamp, and checking in with my groups. By the time I was done cheering my babes on 💫🎉 and getting others started online, I wasn’t sure I had enough left in the tank for me. But I realized that I give OTHERS my BEST, when I give MYSELF the time of day. So I pressed play. Because this sweat time is ME TIME. Now that I’ve moved my butt, (literally and figuratively), I feel like I’ve refilled and cleansed my cup. 🌿🌷 Working out helps me clear any of the comparison, self-limiting beliefs, or negativity crap that might be swirling around inside my head. I’m human— I get sucked into it, too. But I don’t have to stay there. Self-care look like 𝐰 𝐡 𝐚 𝐭 𝐞 𝐯 𝐞 𝐫 is helping you reconnect to yourself. Cuz you can’t be there for your crew, if you’re never there for yourself. 𝐓𝐨 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐬 who’ve reached out about joining this sweaty self-care movement with me, check your inboxes!! I’ve replied with sign up steps. If you haven’t — I’ve got room for you, too. 💜Link in bio + fill out the form for info. 💜 🇺🇸🇬🇧🇨🇦 only.

I’m so thankful I get to do life with this soul. 🎁🎈🥳𝐇 𝐀 𝐏 𝐏 𝐘 𝐁 𝐈 𝐑 𝐓 𝐇 𝐃 𝐀 𝐘 to this love of mine, who, 𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘭𝘺 𝘪𝘴, my other half. 🎈🎉🎈 @wtsnz
A month ago 👈🏼👉🏼Today. That progress you’re looking for? It’s on the other side of not giving up when shit feels hard and uncomfortable. Consistency IS the short cut. We need to stop the instant gratification mindset and 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭 realizing we DESERVE the consistent, daily effort that our dreams and Greatness requires. Be willing to stumble, to take tiny steps, to go at your own pace, and 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘢𝘭𝘭, to FAIL— Because on the other side of that, is the 🌱 𝐞𝐩𝐢𝐜 𝐠𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐭𝐡 🌱 you’re looking for. Lean in, step up, and play the long game, babes. Let’s lock arms while we enjoy the 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐀𝐍𝐃 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬. We CAN do hard things! 44 of 100 ✔️ Working those 10lbs the whole way through now. SAVE these fire Friday🔥 killer moves🔥 to add to your routine and start the weekend strong. (Tip: go light with the weights!) September registration is OPEN if you want to Commit to 100 for 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟, 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘶𝘴! Click the link in my IG bio + 𝐟𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦 for info on how to reserve your spot. 🇨🇦🇺🇸🇬🇧 only.
White shorts (after labour day!? rebel🤣), wild kimono, washed hair— I don’t get cleaned up much, so it’s got to be documented when it happens! But I have a solid reason for this OOTN. 𝘏𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘣𝘢𝘣𝘦! Meet Shaunna. For four years, I’ve watched her get into the 🔥BEST shape of her life from her house, go through multiple hip surgeries and come out stronger than before even that she has bionic hips⚙️, and, 🌱🌿🌷grow mentally and emotionally stronger every day on her journey. Four years ago, this girl sent me an email asking if she could be in one of my online Bootcamps. She soon after became a coach on my team and began changing lives HERSELF. And honestly Team Dream Catchers has been forever brighter for her heart and effort. She’s in town from Edmonton and I couldn’t wait to see her for drinks and chats! Thanks to that email, I gained such a good hearted, quality friend in Shaunna... I’m so grateful. So, cheers to us, @shaunna.dunmore for both taking a leap of faith into this coaching gig, and, for SURVIVING MOVING our moves into new apartments past weekend! 🤣🤘🏼📦🤪🚚 Let’s keep doing life together, ya?
