• The before doesn’t usually look like this.  Mister (bless his heart) has been cleaning the kitchen more and this is how he puts away the pans.  I didn’t say nothing because I’m not trying to discourage him 😩. I just cleaned it up.  He said it looks much better 😒. Looks like as long as he’s cleaning the kitchen I’ll just tidy up ever couple of days. We were supposed to get a custom system installed in this large corn cabinet but I never got around to it. This will do for now. PS, music stopped but you get the point 😆#quarantinecleaning #kitchenorganization
  • I miss outside 😩! If you know me in person you know I’m a extra-extrovert. Being out with the people shaking hands & kissing babies is what I do!  I kinda miss finding something cute to wear like this @suakokobetty kimono and shorts look. I think I’m turning into an social media introvert. Y’all know how i feel about introverts 😒😂. I don’t post as much as I used because I like the human energy. I sure we will get passed this! How are y’all coping socially? I’ll add a swipe up to my look in my stories.
  • Had to bring Mr. out of retirement to show y’all the new black on black Superdad! Father’s Day is coming and they need this drip. Also BOGO sale going on for Memorial Day wknd. Link in profile. supermomculture.com
  • Glad that’s over 😩. School is out for Quarantine Summer! Not sure what we’re going to do but I’m just happy to not have to log in teams and scan homework! So proud of how Peyton handled these few months.  She picked up a part time job with @supermomculture and got all her work done. In pray they will return in the fall 🙏🏿. 5th grade here we come!

  • Motherhood is something I wasn’t sure I wanted.  Look at me now! I was missing my mom today but overall I had a good day. Thank you for all@the love! @supermomculture showed out and I know that was my mom shining down. Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day!
  • For Mother’s Day Sunday my mom would have a new sharp suit laid out and she would have me run around Atlanta looking for a hat to match. I miss my mom so much. I find comfort in knowing that the very best parts of me are because of her. I feel her with me every day. 🌹
  • You guys have held me down this past year! Words of encouragement and supporting @supermomculture. I want to say thank you! I know I’ve been quiet but I’ve been working getting orders out.  Tonight we are going to celebrate US at 8pm on  @supermomculture Live! Grab your drink of choice and join me! #ipartiedatsupermothersday #clubsupermomculture
  • Meet my team... Peyton! Seriously, this little girl works so hard.  She works hard in everything that she does but I didn’t expect her to work hard for me.  She’s not half working either! She catches me making mistakes sometimes.  She even wants to take on more responsibility. She will work long hours with me (because she does get paid) and we chat and laugh while working.  I hope this continues because she is going to be a beast in business as an adult because she’s is getting firsthand experience at 9.  Proud mama! What’s that scripture about “train up a child” .... y’all know the rest 😂. Also, head to the site for white or black tees available now!
  • Taco Tuesday on Cinco de Mayo 🙌🏾 Yes Please! I told Peyton to look up what Cinco de Mayo was and she grabbed the sombreros I brought them from my MX trio earlier this year when traveling was a thing. Mamas got Margaritas on deck! 🍹 Who else is having a special taco Tuesday?

Diet Diaries: My Mind is Playing Tricks on Me

February 22, 2017

I wanted to give you guys a progress update on my weight loss.  I ALMOST threw in the towel this week after two months of trying to achieve my weight loss goals.  This week the devil has been busy trying to get me to quit.   After a few weeks of not seeing any movement on the scale and then being sick, I was discouraged.  I kept thinking to myself, it would be so much easier to just let it go and buy new clothes.  I was doing all this work and nothing was changing. What was the point?

The devil almost won.  He’s been in my head for a few days talking mad junk.  I even said to my husband what was the point of me doing all this work.  I had every reason to quit.  Why was I dragging my baby to the gym.  I was spending too much money on groceries.  It was too much work to cook and clean every day.  I’m tired.  Nothing is changing.  I gained 2 pounds…. It has been a full on battle in my mind.

Then God spoke to me and said to get up and share your progress with others.  Here I am.  Letting it all hang (literally).  The picture on the left is from October.  I actually gained another 5 pounds by January when I got started.  The picture on the right is about 2 weeks ago.  It’s not a major change but I see change.  That’s what counts.  My back roll is slowly going alway and my stomach has gone down.  Looking at my own pictures has given me hope.

No one ever succeeds by giving up.  The negative thoughts tried to take over but I kept telling myself “Trina, don’t you want this right?”  If this is what I want, why would I quit?  I’m going to continue to work hard and eating right.  I’m still fighting.  I’m thinking I should do a little retail therapy to celebrate.

Have you ever felt like this?  What did you do to overcome the negative thoughts?  Follow me on Snapchat @babyshopa where I share all my meals.

    This is so uplifting. I see a major change. Hang in there. I’m going through the same, exact thing. Please continue to update us!

    Agreed. I think you look fantastic. The struggle is so real, but you can do it. I’m working on this too after three years of thyroid problems and failed after failed diet. And anyway, you look great the way you are, so just know that as you try to reach your goal. Please keep us updated. It’s inspirational.

    Keep up the fight! Progress takes time! Have you considered shaking things up a bit with your diet routine? JJ Smith’s 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse worked to jumpstart things for me personally…I feel far better, sleep better, have more energy, etc. when I am drinking my smoothies consistently.

    Don’t give up!! You may not see weight change as some fat cells are replaced by muscle cells (which is “heavier”). Keep up the good work!
