Get Fit With Me!

Get Fit With Me!

Hello everyone!

It’s Easter and April Fool’s Day! Holiday’s aren’t the same for me over here, it’s just another day when you aren’t around your loved ones. Any who, today I wanted to talk about something that we can all relate to and affects us all, our health. Health and wellness has been important to for a while now. Growing up I watched my mother become sick and I just knew that if she had taken better care of herself, she might be here with us today. That motivated me to make sure that I made better decisions when it came to my health. I also like to look good, and there was a time when I wasn’t comfortable with my body. Social media can definitely make us feel less confident about ourselves. I have spent hours looking at others girls on Instagram with the banging  bodies and figures and wanted to emulate that look. Now I just try to be the best version of myself. So for the month of April, I challenge you! If you haven’t already, you can start of the second quarter of 2018 on the right foot with your fitness goals. I’ll be doing this challenge as well. I’ll be posting tips and meals on my fitness page on Instagram. You can follow me here Julie Fitness. We all want to look and feel our best, but sometimes we need that extra push when the self motivation is lacking. I already have about five people that are joining me on this challenge, and I actually saw it from another one of my friends, and it inspired me.

I recently purchased a Vitamix Blender, so I’ll be sharing recipes for that also, and maybe I’ll make some videos. There’s more to come on that. Other than that, I hope that you join me on this challenge. Hopefully it starts off as a challenge and turns into a lifestyle, because at the end of the day that’s what it has to be. Start off by cutting the things out of your diet that aren’t good for you, and it will be easier to make healthier options everyday. That’s what I did and for the most part, I am pretty healthy. Thanks for stopping by, and if you’re with me on this challenge leave a comment. Have a be-YOU-tiful day!





It is so easy to get distracted from your goals these days, it’s not even funny. I honestly believe that distractions are from the devil. Staying focused and consistent are two very important elements when it comes to being successful. I am still learning how to stay focused and consistent on my goals without being distracted. Oddly enough, relationships for me are very distracting. I tend to focus on the person that I’m with more than my goal by trying to make them happy. Word of advice, don’t do that. If you’re in a relationship with someone a) you should know each other’s goals, and b) you should be encouraging each other to reach those goals. If you’re with a person that doesn’t respect your goals and dreams, then they probably aren’t the one for you anyway. You have to set boundaries within your relationship, so that you can still be the best person that you can be.

Achieving your goals is a very full filling feeling. The main reason why we set goals is to feel accomplished. As I reflect on this past year, I realize that I was distracted alot and did not complete some goals that I set for myself. Ultimately, that’s my own fault. It would be really selfish to blame my shortcomings on someone else. Now that I know what things throw me off my path, I can make a conscious effort to avoid those distractions.

It’s all a learning process. I’m not the same person that I was a year ago, or even the beginning of this year. I have been growing daily, and learning more about myself. I have already started planning my goals for next year. I want to get a head start on the things that I want to accomplish. Preparation is key. We can have anything we want in life. We just have to do what’s necessary to get it, and that ultimately means no excuses, and no distractions.

What are your goals? Has something, or someone been distracting you from achieving those goals? Are you aware of your distractions, or are you getting in your own way? Now is the time to plan that beYOUtiful life that you see for yourself. Make the necessary preparations now, and the future will be even better.

Inner Peace.

Inner Peace.

So, for the first time in years I am living by myself (no roommate), and I am single. This has been going on for the past few weeks, and it is something that I have wanted for myself since I decided that I wanted to get a divorce years ago. If you didn’t know, I was married for five years, and obviously it did not work out. My ex husband is a good man, but he just wasn’t the right man for me, and I was not ready to be a wife at the time. I just kept telling myself and him that I just wanted to be alone. I just wanted time to myself to figure out who Juliette is with no one else’s influence or judgment. I feel like when you are actually out on your own, and handling business by yourself & for yourself, you get to know yourself even more. 

Since I have lived by myself, I find that there are good days and bad days. Some days I am so happy that it is just me, and that I can just fully enjoy my own company. Other days I feel lonely, and like I need someone there. I go on social media and see happy couples and wonder why I don’t have that yet. Then I quickly remind myself that this is what I wanted, and when the right person comes along I will know. 

Throughout this whole process, I am getting to know myself better. I do love who I am, and the woman I am becoming. I am at peace knowing my strengths and my weaknesses. I know I have flaws, and I don’t try to hide them. At this point in my life, it’s either you love me how I am, or having nothing at all. I don’t feel the need to conform to anyone’s beliefs. I walk to the beat of my drum set. 

This feeling is a very liberating feeling, especially as a woman. Women are taught from a young age that they must be wifely, or motherly. I am not either at the moment, and I am find with that. I see so many women rushing to be a wife or a mom, and they haven’t enjoyed their own life yet. Once you become a wife and a mother the focus is not on you anymore. I believe that you need that time to just figure out who you really are, so that you may know what you really want. During my first marriage, I was just learning who I was. I was only 19 when I got married, so that was super young to be making that type of commitment in the first place. I was smart enough not to bring a child into that situation. 

I said all of that to say this, I am finding inner peace within myself. I enjoy my own company. I love being the master of my life. I want to be a complete person before I decide to fully commit to someone else, and I hope that he would have the same mindset too. I urge all of you to get to know yourself more. It is a beYOUtiful feeling. 

Birds of a Feather

Birds of a Feather

Have you heard the phrase “birds of a feather flock together”? Well we know that to be true literally speaking; you never see a pigeon flying around with eagles. The chances of that happening is slim to none, but have you ever verify thought about that figuratively? In other words, the saying means you are who you associate yourself with. 

When I was younger my mother was very particular with whom I was friends with. She told me that sometimes you have to hang out with different people because of who they are viewed as, it doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with you. This is a very touchy subject, because it kind of says that a person doesn’t necessarily act under their own free will, and they think as the rest of the group does. For some people this may be true, but in my experience it is not. 

This past weekend I attended an international convention for my networking marketing business, and we had about 25,000 people in attendance from all over the world.  The best thing about it was that we are all working towards a common goal. Everyone in attendance was there for their own selfish reasons, but we all essentially want the same thing. We all want freedom in some way, shape, or form. It is so exhilarating to be surrounded by positive people working towards a common goal. In our day to day lives that it something that we don’t often have. Normal people are usually negative, and always have something to gripe or complain about.

I encourage you to get around those people that are positive, and are working towards their goals. If you would like to connect with me more,  just send me an email. I would love to connect with more like-minded individuals.

Don’t you hate it when….

Don’t you hate it when people complain about how horrible their life is, and when you show them something that could change their life they do nothing about it?! No? Probably not, unless you do what I do.

I have been apart of an amazing concept for the past three years and it has totally changed my life. I have experienced some things and seen some places that I never would have if it wasn’t for this concept. The best part of it is the amazing people that I am able to meet. I have met some lifelong friends because of this idea. The funny part is that most people want the lifestyle that I have, but they aren’t willing to do what I do to get it. Isn’t that odd? I was taught that if someone has the lifestyle that you want, then all you have to do is mimic what they did to get those results.

Success leaves clues, and sometimes it’s better to look at the people that you know in life and start there. I am no where I want to be, or plan to be in life but I’m on the right track. I am gaining as much information as I can from my mentors by reading and attending seminars. The information that we need to be successful is hardly ever just handed to us, we have to go out and find it for ourselves.

This year I challenge you, and myself, to read more, do more, and be more. There is greatness in all us, we just have to pull it out.

Queen 👸🏾

Queen 👸🏾

I call myself queen because I feel that I am so. I believe that I am a descendant of a bloodline of royalty tracing back to West Africa. Of course, I do not know that as fact, but it is what I perceive to be true, and my 23andme ancestry results said that I am 89% West African. With all of the injustice among black people and the racist remarks coming from some white people, it has had me digging and searching for answers. I recently started watching the Roots series on Hulu. It was so hard for me to watch that I could not even finish the first episode. They way that people treat people is cruel. Slavery is something that I do not think African Americans should ever get over, just like Jews should never get over the Holocaust, and Native Americans should never get over the killing of their people.

At some point, we as a people and a nation have to realize that the things that happened in the past have a domino effect. Just because I was not alive during slavery and the civil rights movement, does not mean that I don’t feel the pain from those times now. When you learn about your history and what your ancestors endured, it stings. It hurts. It is painful.

The things that are happening today in America with the police brutality, black on black crime, and the prison system shows me that we still have a long way to go as a nation. Everyone isn’t treated equally. Money talks in this country, and if you don’t have money then you’re expected to shut your mouth and comply. It’s another way to control people.

I will say that there are way more opportunities now then there was back in the day for black people, and people in general.  If you want to change your life or the lives of others around you, the time is now. You have to open your mind to new opportunities. To change, you must change. If you keep complaining and doing the same thing, you’re going to keep getting the same results.

Once I started to address myself as a queen, things around me began to change. People started treating me and addressing me as such also. When I changed my mindset and started to elevate myself to that level of a queen, opportunities showed up all around me. I expect the best. Therefore, I get the best. There is nothing wrong with holding yourself to a higher standard.

When is enough, enough?

Everyone wants to be a baller, shot-caller right? Everyone wants to to have a lot of money and live this lavish lifestyle correct? We all know that is not the reality for most people, but some people do live the lavish lifestyle. My question is when is enough, enough? What is the amount of money that you want to make monthly, or yearly that you will be satisfied with earning the rest of your life? That number for me is $20K monthly. Once I start making $20K a month I’ll be content. That means I would need to make four times the amount of money that I make now. I personally know people that make that type of money, and they still aren’t content. They still strive to get to the next level.

To me it seems like everybody is so busy hustling and not living. Sometimes it’s good to just sit back for a minute and appreciate what you do have before it’s gone. Sometimes we focus on the future so much that we forget the right now. What are you doing in your life right now that is making you happy? You can always plan for the future, but you still have to live in the present. This is one topic that I struggle with myself all the time. It’s so easy to be greedy, and I believe alot of people are. If you’re a greedy person no amount of money will ever be enough for you. If you are not using your resources to help others anyway, then what’s the point?
