Celebrating my birthday with my beloved @meggdel. Couldn’t ask for a better partner in crime. #thisis30

When I open a message from a coach who just had her biggest paycheck yet from her coaching business! When a new challenger texts me saying that she FINALLY broke her plateau and hit a number on the scale that she hasn’t seen in YEARS and she wishes she would have joined #TheConfidenceProject sooner! When a total stranger reaches out on social media to tell me that she is so encouraged by my posts and that something I shared inspired her to make a healthier choice today!
Building this business doesn’t come easy, but I can’t even put into words how fulfilling this is! The Aleena I knew 6 years ago would have laughed thinking she’d be a fitness mentor. I was, afterall, the girl with a history of eating disorders and countless failed attempts at losing weight and living healthy.
I’m living, daily proof that at any given moment, you can choose to pivot. To change directions. To pick a different path. You can choose to become any version of yourself that you want to be. I am forever grateful that I listened to that nudge in my heart to lean into this opportunity. I was scared and full of doubts and I had no freakin clue what I was getting myself into. But I did it anyway. Coaching not only changed my career path, it changed my whole life.
I know I’m speaking to someone right now who also feels that nudge. Girl, LEAN IN. Come join me. Let’s do this together. Comment below or message me 💋
Sometimes you celebrate your birthday a little too hard and wake up with a scratched eye. Today I learned that that’s called a corneal abrasion and now I have to take antibiotics 6 times a day for the next week or so. I did get some sweet glasses out of it though! #ThisIs30
Knowledge is power! If I say “I AM” a Queen then I AM just that. If I move like a queen, think like a queen, talk like a queen, & study my ancestral history to find queens who look just like me, then I’ll ultimately become the queen that I initially said “I AM”.
Happy birthday to me 🎉
30 trips around the sun and I’m reflecting at how blessed I am and how full my life is. Thank you for everyone who celebrated with me and everyone who reached out and sent me love and birthday wishes. Love you all. 30s will be my best years yet 💕💕
If I’m honest, I still haven’t come to terms fully with NOT being pregnant. While there are discomforts, I mostly love being pregnant. Since it ended so abruptly, it’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that I’ve been snuggling this sweet boy for just about two weeks, with my due date still about two weeks away!
I’m so glad that he is safe and that we’ve gotten all the extra snuggles, but at times I’ve still felt caught off guard. For me this means taking a step back from this space because I don’t really know what to share. I never made freezer meals, prepped content or blog posts, or finished his nursery or laundry... but you know what, we’re still doing well taking each day at a time without all the prep work I thought I needed (babies only need boobs and diapers, right?)
All this to say, I’ll be posting more nutrition-related content soon, but I’m not in a rush! Enjoying some baby snuggles today and letting some other stuff slide because they aren’t this little for very long 👶🏼
This is 30
Jon knows the way to my ❤️.
Not only did @jonsmorol and @bsmorol turn my 30th bday into one of my favorite @friends episodes.....he got me a much needed Nespresso machine and new sneaks!
Now to enjoy the rest of the night with my people. .
Idk how I won 15 friends (16 with the baby!) amazing enough to make a 7 hour round trip journey to Bisbee, AZ to celebrate my 30th, but I’m never going to take this crew for granted. YOU GUYS ARE SO PRECIOUS TO ME! 💗 #thisis30
And just like that, I’m DONE.
We committed. We climbed. We conquered. Yes, pounds and inches were lost. Yes, strength and endurance were gained. But even more important? I pushed past SO MANY STRUGGLES. You guys.... I completed a CARDIO based workout. If you know me, that is HUGE! Lifting is my jam, cardio for me is more like cardiNO, so mentally, this was unreal. It was hard, and many days I was like, “eh, maybe I’ll just do a lifting workout instead, I’m not strong enough for this”.... but I never gave in to those thoughts. I checked into my accountability groups, I saw my girls CRUSHING IT, and I told myself that I COULD DO IT TOO.
So instead of sharing my before and afters, I’m sharing this: YOU CAN CONQUER ANYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO AS LONG AS YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.... and having a group of people who believe in you and cheer you on along the way doesn’t hurt either ♥️♥️
We start again Monday March 4th... the program options are endless, the nutrition options are amazing, but the accountability and support? That’s where it’s at you guys.... so if you’re reading this thinking, “If only I had someone to do this with me,” NOW is the time. And we would LOVE to be in your corner ♥️♥️
30 is the new 20. I'm excited for this next chapter of my life! Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. Thank you to all of my friends & family who came together to make my birthday extra special. It truly means the world 💕 I'm speechless but in time I'll find the words to thank everyone individually & express just how much it meant to see & hear from everyone. Thank you so much! #ThisIs30#AquariusBaby#Est1989
30 & MF THRIVING!!!⚡️
I have never been more amped about the state of my being, the people I’m surrounded by & the direction I’m heading.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for showering me with all the love today. My heart is overflowing.💕🎉

I am already looking forward to the next girls night, it’s a once a month must! #thisis30
You’ve gotta be brave enough to let go of the people, habits and assets that once served a purpose in your life/business/relationships but no longer do. Change is scary but staying stagnant should be even scarier... I say all that to say BUH BYE BOOBIES! You were SO useful in my 20s 😂 but now you got me out here lookin hella cray.
You showed me how easy it was to transform into exactly who I wanted to be which is a lesson I’ve applied beyond my appearance, and for that I will be forever grateful. But now, for the first time in a long time I don’t feel at all comfortable in my skin, I hate what I look like in clothes, my back hurts like a mother ALL THE TIME - and I’m way to busy staying focused on my business to worry about that stuff when it’s an option.
So Denise and Danielle... I’m going to miss you. We’ll enjoy our last couple weeks together, but then I’m heading back to the itty bitty titty committee... where I belong.
