🔺BEFORE AND CURRENT TRANSFORMATION🔺
"This was me a few years ago. I weighed in at 252lbs! I wore an size 32 in jeans, XL in shirts, and couldn't wear my converse longer than an hour!!! I now weigh 169lbs, the smallest pair of jeans I have are a size 5, XS in shirts, and I can now even run in my converse!!! I want to thank Jesus Chavez Jr. and Tony-Cynthia Salas for that dumb competiton (well it was dumb at the time haha) about who could lose the most weight. If it wasn't for that, I probably be close to 300lbs or worse. I'm so active now that I find it very hard to stay still. I have to get up from my desk every hour and just walk around the office or stretch. I also want to thank the trainers that I had a pleasure of training with-Mando Rodriguez, Donald Camarena, Suprem E Assailant, and Isaac Nanez. I learned so much about myself when I trained with you and I saw a difference in my body, whether it was getting more muscle definition, being able to go longer and faster, or just doing something I never thought I could do. You all pushed me and brought out the best in me. I hope to train with you again in the future (just need to recover from some injuries ^_^). Last but not least I want to thank God, my family and friends for all the support. My life has changed dramatically and I don't think I would want it any other way. Working out is my addicition and it's not just a temporary fix, it's a lifetime change. My next goal is to lose another 15-20lbs and I'll be exactly where I want to be !!! Again, thank you all for the support and love!!!"

Sorry for the angle 😂. I’m working on my squats and how low I can go. Obviously this wasn’t about weight. I like these as well as 1rm because it’s almost like weighted cardio. Haha #myresolutionstartsnow#onwardsandupwards
One heck of a #transformationtuesday it's time for me to push my body, mind, soul, to the next level!! One thing from @beastfactoryfitness this weekend I saw....If your dreams don't scare the living day lights out of you then it's not big enough! Can I tell you my mindset came from a place of deep rooted pain and years of tears! I have a strong back because life shaped me to be tough as a rock! What doesn't break you in this life makes you stronger! I'm determined that this animal aka beast won't #back down!! He didn't ever give me the spirit of fear, but power love and a sound MIND! Le go #2019@bonniejpratt thanks for the confirmation 😘💪🏾
My papa has cancer.
My papa has had cancer for the past two years. He has been a smoker ever since he can remember. That's his kyrptonite. For years we have told him to go to the doctor to check and see if he has lung cancer and he always disagreed (stubborn, like me). My family tried helping him wing off of it, but of course, like every addiction, it's hard.
Last year, I found out my papa has cancer. Lung Cancer. Colon Cancer. Towards the end of last year, they announced him cancer free after chemo and radiation. This summer, we found out the cancer came back. Throughout his entire body. They did not think the chemo and radiation would be enough. But I prayed it would. Then we find out that, the cancer has spread so much, it's in his spine and in his entire body. He does not have long to live, but I pray he does. I am going home tomorrow, to spend time with my family and spend time with my papa.
He's someone who picks on me non stop. He is someone who let us girls, paint his toenails. He is one who eats peanut butter out of a jar with a spoon. He's one that is pure country, with a heart of gold. He's someone that falls asleep in the recliner so we can tickle his feet to make him scream awake. He is someone who would help anyone off of the street in need. He would take his shirt off for anyone. He loves hard and he loves fast. Growing up, he was someone I spent most of my time with while visiting. He is so dear to me. He's my papa and I just cannot let him go just yet.
Life is so precious and Life is so welcoming, and deserving. When life comes to an end, it's so incredibly hard to grasp that. As they say, life is short. So live it well. God is with my family and God has a plan.
This one is for my Papa.

Being ruff & mean is sometimes better people may appreciate you more.....
#MondayMotivation • Build an unbreakable focus. When you want something, you have to keep your eyes on it. Don't lose sight of what you're working to accomplish. An intense focus is what keeps successful people on target.
Time passes so quickly and we often forget where we used to be because we are so consumed on where we want to be. We even look past the current moment; the present and never fully enjoy it or give ourselves the credit that we deserve. I'm guilty of this. I dwell on the past and dread the future rather than appreciating the NOW.
@marisa.laren @infamoose_aris and I had a discussion last night about negative thinking. Marisa suggested that the moment a negative thought seeps into your mind, I should acknowledge it but quickly replace it with a positive thought or, imagine the advice I would give to someone who is speaking to themselves the way I negatively speak to myself. What would I say to encourage them?
It's human nature to criticize yourself. We are our own worst critics, but we need to learn to cut ourselves some slack. Rather than looking at all the work that needs to be done to complete a future goal, take a step back and appreciate the previous steps you have taken to get to where you are now.
Having depression and major anxiety does affect my thinking so much, but I have the power to either let it eat me alive from the inside out or to take the reigns and steer it in a better direction. They key is to keep trying. Keep fighting.
