Great and GLOWrious Day Sister eagles!
My name is Jully Black, 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 that was 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 2 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 as aside of 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.” Ghandi
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 needed accountability so I formed a club!
The Step Club was formed as a result of Covid19 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 surrender 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 3 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 4 years! In 2015 I was on a journey to go deeper with God so I committed to celibacy for 3 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. If you’re interested in joining the PDL (purpose driven life) bible memorization group please Email email@example.com
With the subject PDL.
I chose this photo to let satan see that in spite of 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, 9 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!
Cycle 10, let’s soar
This is the road to 1000 days of love, kindness, joy, intentionality, mindfulness, presence, and connectedness.
The number 1,000 is significant in so many ways. It appears in the Bible 50 times. In terms of time, 1,000 is a ‘millennia, and when referring to quantity, the number conveys the immensity of the thing in question without its totality. In health and development, research has shown that the first 1,000 days of life are what UNICEF calls the ‘brain’s window of opportunity’, where the future health of an individual is largely set and can either set a child on the path to wellbeing or a life of morbidity and early mortality. The first thousand days are crucial for the totality of one’s life, and that is why health and development agencies focus their investments on those first 1,000 days.
Similarly, the road to 1000 days of 100 Strong & Sexy represents an investment into the entire community’s health and wellness of mind, body, and soul, which is immensely important to our humanity’s thriving.
And as we thrive we look ahead to our journey of 1000 days. We will harness the mindset of a champion. Trent Shelton wrote a powerful article on this topic. In summary, here are five ways to harvest the mindset of a champion:
