Be Yourself .. AlwaysπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Hey beauties!

Hope you’re all having great days! I wanted to write a post on celebrating you! We all need to celebrate for a number of reasons, and the most important is because we are here living each day, doing the things we love. We live in such a technology-crazed, social media world where it seems so many people are trying to prove themselves. I have no idea why some people go to extreme measures… I mean, who cares, right? The one thing I want to say is always be yourself. I’ve been around so many people trying to prove their worth, or doing things to try to impress other people, and I laugh because no one really is that important to other people. You all have great families and lives in which you are enjoying your favorite hobbies, taking care of yourselves, maintaining your health to the best of your ability. Life is fragile and it should be lived having fun, spending time with your friends and family, laughing, dancing, etc. Whatever your heart desires! Celebrate yourself everyday! My family thinks I’m crazy because I’m always trying something new, and honestly when I’m with my kids, I’m all fun and games! I want them to remember me as a fun mom, and I want them hanging out in my house, not wanting to go hang out somewhere else all the time! Remember to always have fun and be yourself. No one else is like you, right?

Yoga.. My πŸ’•

Hi ladies!!

I’m a huge fitness advocate, and I never miss a day of working out. I have multiple routines and classes that I enjoy. Fitness keeps me healthy, my energy levels up, and after sweating my ass off, I feel damn good! Don’t you? Well, one workout I cannot live without is yoga! I try at least 2-3 days a week to hit up a yoga class. If I go on a vacation, I make sure wherever I stay, they offer yoga classes. Hot yoga is the bomb, and when I leave I feel amazing! There are so many benefits to yoga… Yoga lowers your stress levels, and improves your mood. Breathing techniques quiet your mind and calm you down into the most relaxed state. Yoga also reduces your risk of injury. It balances your muscle groups. Yoga increases flexibility. It makes your range of motion better, and even works the soft tissue and ligaments in your muscles. Yoga improves your muscle tone. I can’t tell you what yoga has done for my biceps simply from the downward dogs. Yoga also helps your breathing and helps your blood pressure simply from the relaxation effect. who doesn’t feel more relaxed after practicing yoga? I really am thinking of teaching yoga because it has changed my life that much. I can leave a yoga class and I feel amazing! Who doesn’t want to feel amazing?
