“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self” – The Bhagavad Gita

 

Hellllo Friends!

Yes I know it has been a while since I have posted but I assure you the reasons have been for the better. In a few short months I have realized so many amazing goals and aspirations. This has allowed me to take the steps needed in order to follow what my heart has always wanted.

So between assignments and so on I have been working real hard on a few  goals. One I will tell you right now is I am becoming a personal trainer. While I have had always the desire be a trainer, I was always self conscious about how to become one. While I am not perfect, I have come such a long way and want to share the world my experiences. In the end I hope to one day inspire others to change, and if that can happen with just one person; I feel like I have brought something amazing to this world.

“Yoga takes you into the present moment, the only place where life exists. Yoga takes you into the present moment, the only place where life exists.”

So now that you have the gist of where my life has been  going I wanted to show you that no matter what size or how long you have practiced yoga, you should be proud of how far you have come. I have gotten into my practice since May and I have to say I am in love with practicing. Whether in a life class or online videos, yoga has taught me so much more about myself. We as humans are so much stronger than you can even imagine. Yoga has shown me with consistent practice and the love and the want to change you can do ANYTHING. I hope that you take the time to practice and feel the wonderful benefits of yoga ♥

Namaste,

Norah ♥

Even if your pose is not “perfect” it is always beautiful❤

Getting What We Want

In life we need to remember to always live each day as if it were our last and use our gifts to contribute something good to the world. This post is a great reminder to get off our bums and go after what we want! Take a moment this weekend to reflect on what your dreams really are and what it takes to accompolish them. Than after that get up and go! Even myself I tend to say tommorow but with a new year I want to change tomorrow to right now!

Hope this weekend for you is filled with happiness and inpsiration!

Everyday Power Blog

All that we desire...

We put things off, overuse the word ‘tomorrow’ and ‘someday’, and postpone unleashing our own greatness on a regular basis. We do not live forever. There is no tomorrow. All we have is right now.
Let’s practice getting into the habit of gifting our gift, love, time and attention to all things that benefit others and ourselves. Let’s practice being so hopeful and so amazing that we never go back to being average or pessimistic again. 
Let’s practice sticking to our word and making things happen.
Let’s live intentionally. Take responsibility for all that has come into your life, and take responsibility for all that you want to come into your life.
Let’s live to give.
Let’s attract all that we want, by first embodying it.
Let’s led by example.
Let’s develop a reputation of integrity, commitment and compassion.
Let’s MAKE THE DECISION, that you do deserve it, the world…

What did you have for lunch?

image

As I’m on the journey I am learning so much more and my relationship with food has changed for the better. I don’t look as food as an escape but as nourishment. Today for example I had a filling breakfast of oatmeal made with almond milk and banana slices.

And for lunch I made this delicious grilled chicken taco. Inside is grilled chix chicken marinated in a tomato sauce I created, sauteed with spinach, corn, and red cabbage. Lastly I added a lil salsa and avocado. .let’s just say DELICIOUS!

So I hope today you take the time toneay something not only delicious but will nourish your body🙂

Happy Eating,
Norah ♥

My New Years Wish [Image from: http://www.quotesthoughts.com]

Yes My Friends I am back from the dead!

It has been a few months to say the least since I have posted, and while I have been busy to no end I decided to put away the excuses and to finally do one of the things I had loved to do once again. As I look back on 2013 I have to say it has been a great year! I have experienced so much and learned a lot about myself this year. I have made some amazing friends, lost some, gone on a health journey that changed my view point of food and how it affects my body; but in the end I am thankful for all the experiences I have been through this year.

Beauty Found Throughout the year...

Beauty Found Throughout the year…

Now that the new year is finally here I think you can all agree with me that we are all excited about the new year and feel that we can do anything! That is because we can! We can make the subtle to even drastic changes needed in order change the path of our lives. Whether it is for your career, health, or even your current relationships in life; we can make the positive steps in order to make the changes to make our lives better.

As of now I want to make a promise to myself to go after things I once felt were impossible to do. I want to take control of my weight-loss journey, I want to take chances in my career, and I want to be a more well-rounded and spiritual person. I am looking forward to the future and hope that I will be able to share each adventure with you all!

For The Love of Running!

At the end of the day, just run! [Image from: momsrunthistown.com]

At the end of the day it is you against the road! [Image from: momsrunthistown.com]

Hello again my friends!

I know I have been MIA for a while but to be honest I have been so busy that blogging was the last thing on my mind! As hard as it is, I am determined to get into the swing of things and write about what I love. That being said I hope to post a lot more when it comes to fitness, food, health, fashion, and even beauty. I hope that I can keep my promise to give the best posts and hope to gain new followers from it! Now on to the fun stuff! So while on vacation ( I spent a glorious month down south!)

Vacation highlights!

Vacation highlights!

I picked up on running. I love love the feeling of being free and while there are others either on the road or track it is you against the world. Even though it can get difficult I love it and I hope for the upcoming fall I can do a 5k or two.

As we know life can be hectic and while many chose other ways to de-stress, I chose to run.

Highlights of my new obsession :-)

Now that you know my new obsession. What is your new found obsession? What makes you happy and even forget all your worries (hopefully safe and legal of course!) LOL. Now that you know mine, what is yours?

Wise Thoughts For The Weekend…

Life is a beautiful gift

When I found this quote I was like this is sooo true! Each of us go through many hardships but its what we do in the brink of it all that matters. I’m taking a step and using my struggles such as weight and confidence issues to empower others. What would you like to achieve?

Through it all I would like to say I inspired someone to never give up
