Great and GLOWrious Day Sister eagles!
My name is Jully Black, and I’m 42 years old, Toronto born and the youngest of 9 children. My professional career is on wiki, so I’ll focus on being the proud founder and active member of 100 Strong & Sexy.
I started this movement to help me with the pain taking a toll on me after the sudden passing of my beloved Mother Agatha on November 29th, 2017. From that day until August 1st, 2018, I turned to chips and wine on a daily to crunch and drown my sorrows.
God is so sovereign that he had me become a vegan two years prior, so I didn’t gain much weight, but I saw that as his AMAZING GRACE.
The message I heard loud in my spirit was, “Don’t let life pin you down before you decide to get up,” so I got up and made my next move my best move!
The call to action was to go on a 100-day health and wellness journey with 56 other Women. Many who are still here, they too decided to take control of their mental, emotional, and physical health and to go on a mission of “Restoring Faith In Female Friendships.”
Here we are, two years later, and I am so happy you all have said YES to make the rest of your life the best of your life! You will see this message in all the clubs aside from Besties Club; each club was birthed as a result of what was missing from my own life.
“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Gandhi
THE BOOK CLUB
The Book Club was birthed after I was paid to read five books on CBC, but soon after fell off! I knew I needed accountability, so I formed a club.
The Step Club was formed as a result of COVID-19 locking the gyms and my Bestie Nkechi encouraging me to step with her. I was garbage at first, so I had to unpack the ego and why I was being so hard on myself and surrendered to the fun!
IN THE ARMS OF AN ANGEL
This club was birthed after speaking to another sister eagle Rosie and a few other Eagles who also lost parents and loved ones and needed support. Our club is unique and inspiring. We celebrate the living while honouring those who have transitioned.
As a three year, Vegan turned plant-forward advocate; this group was birthed to help our members see that there are LOTS of YUMMY foods in the plant-forward space! I released so much inflammation and weight when I dropped meat! I’m not radical, though so this is to support those who are curious or want to transition even for a cycle! If you love meat, EAT IT!
WAKE & WORSHIP
Formerly “The Prayer Engine,” this club was birthed in 2016! Yep, many of us have been praying, memorizing bible verses, and entire chapters (yes, chapters!) plus fasting together for four years! In 2015 I was on a journey to go deeper with God, so I committed to celibacy for three years and decided I didn’t want to use Sex, Money, or food to pacify my pain any longer. The rest will be in the book LOL.
I chose this photo to let satan see that despite all I’ve endured, child sexual abuse, domestic violence, being stabbed as a youth, severe financial hardship, betrayal, loss of 3 siblings and my Mother, a nine-year relationship ending badly and more, THE JOY OF MY LORD IS MY STRENGTH!
Find your smile daily! It’s a powerful tool and weapon!
