Always remember above all to love yourself and the journey …
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.
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 ♥
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 🙂
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!)
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.
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?
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?
Working out is something that has become a way of life. I workout 6 days a week no matter how tired I am, how angry I get at life, exhausted from an amazing day out with friends and family, even when I am sleepy I will push myself to workout. One thing I know is WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, I feel AMAZING when I am done with my workout. I feel like I am so strong and I can take on the day. It is amazing what you can accomplish with that state of mind. So now that you know how I feel when I workout, question is…
Have you looked in the mirror?…
Like truly looked at yourself?
What do you see?
Do you like what you see or do you cringe?
Shaking your head in disappointment
Sighing at disbelief
Maybe even shed a tear
But breath my friend
Smile at yourself
Cheese so wide you hurt your cheeks
FOR YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
YOU ARE HANDSOME!
Who cares what the world thinks!
This is the real you, and this is your real body!
And if you do not like it
Smile because you are ready for change
Smile for the haters you know you will soon make envious
Smile for your health
Smile for your upcoming new life!
No one says it will be easy
You may be in more pain than you ever been in your life
You may even feel defeated at times
But one thing I can promise you!
You will be happier
You will be healthier
And you will become more motivated than you have EVER BEEN IN YOUR LIFE
So my friend
If your ready for change
LETS DO THIS
And always remember
Love your body NO MATTER WHAT!
Love the body that you are in throughout your journey in life, it is the only one you have! Hope you enjoy the small and big accomplishments in your health journey for not only this week but throughout your WHOLE LIFE!
SO SO SORRY I haven’t posted in like FOREVER! I have been so crazy busy and when I was not I was too exhausted to blog anything. Lately it has been short and sweet posts, but what I loved about them was my motivation was getting out there. Than I realized that the direction that not only my life was going but my blog was going in a different direction. Lately you have all noticed I have been focused on health and fitness and that is what I would like to focus on. I want when you go on my blog you find inspiration in your daily lives, and with that I decided to give my lovely blog a MAKEOVER! With that being said I will focus more on health and fitness but also giving you guys random but emotional poems, awesome recipes that I created or tested and LOVE and lots and lots of pictures of great inspiration.
I hope you follow me in this journey of self discovery and I hope I can maybe even inspire you to change your life just a little! Whatever the case may be I hope you follow, read, comment, and just have fun! Anyway before I leave my loves here a couple of pics of inspiration and a challenge I have been working on Instagram that I want you ALL to join whether you have Instagram or not!
If anyone is familar with Instagram you know they have daily to monthly photo challeneges where you can post daily pics on different topics. This month I decided to do a #mayfitnesschallenge and it has been loads of fun. Each day you post a pic of the topic of the day and it actually keeps you motivated during your fitness journey and you can even meet new people throughout it as well.
I have chatted with many people on this journey and it is very inspiring to see people’s progress and how they conquered their health. I will TRY to post my daily pics with you all and if you have Instagram look for me (sn is CulinaryGirl138)and see the awesome pics I post daily as well! I hope you all have an amazing weekend and remember YOU ARE WORTH IT!
