Yes I went there!
Noticed this on a Road trip and I just couldn't help but give praise to the SKIN gods.
Literally my skin glows now that I am eating better and juicing daily!
I was able to cure my PCOS and Thyroid issues.
I am able to maintain my mood swings and depressive states by juicing.
My brows are done and I have eyeliner on and just a dash of bronzer on.
No Concealer
NO banana powder
No BS!

Week of Service: Going Green for Mental Health!

Literally did a lot this past week that dealt with telling my story about my journey and my Mental Health. I had the opportunity of joining other Mental Health Advocates at the Capitol here in Atlanta. I spoke with four classes of sixth graders at Columbia Middle School about how important Communicating is. It is very hard to relive many moments of my life over & over again, but if it helps students speak up for help and state legislators work on legislation for people like me then so be it. 

I am thankful that God continues to use me in a light where I am able to speak to others while helping them see a different side of Mental illness. I know that many people diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder aren't functioning well in today's society and aren't able to manage their families. I am. I continue to fight for my life and every day I am battling thoughts within. 

They haven't won but I continue to WIN because I want to LIVE! 
It ain't easy being GREEN but someone has to do it!

What DAWN eats?!

It's like people think I don't eat REAL FOOD anymore! No I am not VEGAN. No I am not VEGETARIAN. I am well on my way though, but just not yet. I am from South Mississippi and everything I've ever eaten has had meat in it. Thanks to I am more aware of what I put into my body and how that directly affects me. I eat ALL DAY surprisingly and I am still able to maintain a decent weight. Below are a few things I eat and a picture that I shared on Instagram on my progress. 

Spiralized Zucchini with Daiya Cheese on top of Ground Turkey in Homemade Tomato Basil sauce and Avocado on the side!

The makings of PASTA! I always use gluten free noodles or veggies noodles. Organic veggies and I always eat broccoli as much as I can! I credit them for the abs I have now & #TierraTaughtMe that! 
I generally work out 2-3 times a day: Gym Session at LA Fitness, Pure Barre and Bootcamp with E.F.F.E.C.T Fitness! It works for me!

#CFBPlayoff National Championship Game

I had the time of my life!!!!!!!!!! Seriously this game was all that and a bag of organic chips!!!!! I truly enjoyed rooting for The Ohio State University and sharing that moment with all of my followers via social media. I wrote a few posts about the game on but I want to make sure I share a few pics here too! 

"I made it to AT&T Stadium and checked off THREE things on My BUCKET LIST! GOD IS GOOD!!!"

"This is what being a FAN is all about: EXPERIENCES!"

"I had the best seats in AT&T stadium! What a way to witness College Football history!"

It was announced last month that I have officially partnered with Tierra Goes Green! Don't worry the website may be down because we are currently working on a new improved website. I have been on this #TierraGoesGreen journey for about a year and a half now. I am not the same person I was when I started this journey and I am still evolving. I truly appreciate Tierra's continued influence and her own journey as it helps me understand how I need to accept my role as a light onto other people's path.

One thing that I will share on my own blog is how I continue to make this a part of my life instead of it being a chore or hassle. Some people want to change their lifestyles and become healthier but see it as a chore or a hassle to do so. GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY! Stop doing what is convenient and push yourself. I did it. I continue to do it and I will do more writing on her website so please visit it daily to see what I will share.

I appreciate you taking the time to read this post and just know that you can GO GREEN TOO!

#31blessings... My Birthday!

January 3rd...

I share this day with a few other women who I love (especially my dear friend Nikki) but most of the time I never look forward to celebrating my birthday. This one was different. I think it's because of the transformation that I've gone through since turning 30 last year.

No longer have any PCOS issues...
No more Thyroid issues....
STILL BIPOLAR... But no longer allowing triggers to prolong my mood swings.
Lost over 75lbs (and Im sure it is more than that) and finally saw my ABS #TheseAbsAintLOYAL
Grew Fans Favorite Fan and still learning what it will and can be!
Was blessed to work in sports broadcasting in youth league and high school football
Got through a tough year in my Marriage and we are slowly rebuilding it
Decided to live in my purpose and help others change their lifestyle through #TierraGoesGreen

This past year really took me out of my comfort zone and I grew into the woman I am today. I am looking forward to what this year has for me and I am determined to remain grateful for what I have and what I do not have.

Started my Birthday celebration at Pure Barre Druid Hills This is my home studio and I love the ladies there!

Enjoyed lunch with a few of my friends at True Food Kitchen! Thank you Michelle for putting this together  and thank you Camille for surprising me & Tierra & Ursula for joining us!

Then my good friend Tierra told me to drive to this address and just walk in and tell them my name. TALK ABOUT SCARY but when I walked into iwi fresh & was told I was there for a Herbal Massage. LOOK AT GOD! I needed that and will go back for more services!

The Grand Finale: This man continues to surprise me! We had a chauffeur for the evening and  enjoyed a PROGRESSIVE dinner for my birthday. We started at Polaris for cocktails and appetizers. Then we went to my favorite restaurant in Atlanta Restaurant Eugene . I was FINALLY able to see how the Coravin wine system and I was blown away. After our 5 course meal we went to Cafe Intermezzo for  tea and then headed home.

I am really excited to see what this year has for me and I am thankful that I made it to see 31!

Happy New Year 2015

It is that simple... You made it into the New Year and some things you've left behind and some things you brought with you. Just know that God makes no mistakes and he is always ready to do something AMAZING in your life. January 1st isn't magical but living every day in gratitude is. So give THANKS and Realize how bless you are so that you will allow God to do what he does best: MAKE A WAY FOR YOU!
