Let it Flow

My current mantra...You get what you give... So make it good ✌🏻 

You get what you give... make it good

You get what you give... make it good

Β After the last few months, my emotions have been on a roller coaster . Lots of highs and a few really hard lows. Not uncommon because it's life... We aren't promised that everything will be smooth sailing . What really caught me off guard was some old patterns in the emotional eating department. Ughhh ... I thought I'd conquered that issue. Well friends, I'm human πŸ˜‰.  

My weight loss journey is just that, a journey. A journey that I'll be on while I'm on this side of heaven. I'd felt really good losing 70 pounds and keeping it off for 5 years. Yay me!! Well two years ago an old back injury reared its head . It wasn't pretty. I wasn't able to workout, and was in a great amount of pain for over year. At this point I'd gained 5 pounds but felt comfortable. ( As comfortable as one can be with lifelong body image issues).  

Last year my back was much better, but I did not make working out a priority. We had lots of vacations, work trips and way to many taco and margarita nights. All-inclusive trips are amazing but when you have several back to back, the weight can sneak up on you quickly. And then emotional eating from some hard family stuff .Β  Add on another 5-8 pounds, which in my mind feels like 100 pounds. At this point I'm realizing a few things and made some healthy mind shifts . So here it goes ! My tips for a better body mindset!

Love yourself πŸ’—πŸ’žΒ . Every ounce of your beautiful self . Don't let the scale or dress size determine how you feel. It's ok to have some set backs. What's important is learning to adjust and learning to love each day your given.  Realize your Gorgeous and beautifully made.😍

Get your body moving . Whatever that looks like for you. A quick walk. Squats while brushing your teeth ( yes in the mornings I do a few barre moves while getting ready). Find an exercise you LOVE ❀️ Hiking, walking, running, yoga, it doesn't matter .Life is way to short to hate exercising. Our bodies are designed to move. Find something that makes you smile . LET IT FLOW!! I absolutely love yoga, and am getting back on the mat! 

Yoga flow and glitter toes  Β   Last tip is in the food department. Find a plan that works for you. I have done every diet on the market. I didn't want to spend my life consumed with counting  carbs, calories and points. I've learned what foods serve my body and which ones don't. I love how my body feels when I give it the right fuel. I've learned to be more aware of my emotional triggers. I KNOW numbing with food will never be the answer. I know if I slip up it's OK. I'll get back up again ✌🏻

The Girl Behind The Blog << My Story

Hey y'all! I am Gena Fryar – a small town girl with a huge heart. I had the pleasure of marrying my high school sweetheart, Billy, over 20 years ago. We have one son named Dillon. He is in college and engaged to be married this summer. I retired as an RN before the age of 40. We are now empty-nesters , travelling and LOVING every minute of life! 

My passion is helping others walk in their greatness because I spent so much of my life not walking in mine and not fulfilling my dreams. I had no idea what my purpose was and spent my days in survival mode working just to get by.

Then the unthinkable happened. The love of my life was in a car wreck and left paralyzed from the waist down. Immediately, overnight I became the primary breadwinner in our family. This happened to be the week my husband was getting a promotion, our son was starting kindergarten in a private school, and we were going to be closing on our dream home. Shifting from a two income home to a one income home overnight was NOT on my radar.

We had no Plan B.

I threw myself into my nursing career working 60 to 80 hours a week. I did that for six solid years before realizing something had to give. I was burnt out on life, marriage, and missed being a mommy!! During this time I became severely overweight. I had always battled my weight, but at this point it was completely out of control. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglycerides, and put on several medications.

All of this propelled my journey to health. I decided to start taking care of me. I lost 70 pounds by eating clean and using Arbonne essentials. If I could do this with my crazy, hectic lifestyle anyone could. I was able to build my Arbonne business around my career, replace my income and retired from nursing 6 years ago.

My life is completely different now – I work from home, I get to travel and have fun. My days are full of happiness and joy. I have finally been able to find "me". Best of all, I get to help others realize they can have a beautiful transformation and start living their dreams too!

My life isn't all rainbows and unicorns, BUT it's pretty close!!
