Yoga LovingΒ β™‘

Happy humpday! Today’s post is about my advancement in Yoga. Though there are no crazy backgrounds no special bends I am very proud of these pictures! I have just started doing yoga this year. I have always had back problems and doing yoga was very difficult as I could not reach any of the poses as I was super tight. I always thought that it was due to my body structure; therefore I never reached any yoga pose nor stretches. I never gave it a try as I was not able to handle a basic pose. Instructors would always be a little bit judgmental, my pilates instructor in FL (not the one in NY I love him and miss him dearly!) would always talk to me as if my body had problems, since I had been training for quite some time and I would not improve.

Thanks to Rolfing I am now able to be myself and have been able to practice yoga and improve in Pilates (I have left my previous instructor and I am now with a super good new one). I surprise myself with what I can accomplish. It is only the beginning but I feel really good! Do not let people tell you you cannot do it or if there is something wrong with you! Never feel discourage and always believe in yourself! And if you suffer from what I do I highly recommend you giving Rolfing a try! It has literally transformed my life! It is a type of massage but focusing on putting your muscles back in their place. As we grow old and stress appears in our lives our muscles get tight and Rolfing brings them back to where they are supposed to! I can attest at the benefits it has bring to my life. It turns out I could not reach those poses in Yoga nor improve in Pilates because my muscles were not where they were supposed to be.

Here are the pics!

Happy Wednesday!! mwaa πŸ’‹

Sugar No More 😱😒…for 40 days though πŸ‘…πŸ˜œ

Hi everyone!! hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!! So after this awesome holiday I overindulged, well I have been overindulging for the past couple of weeks & after yesterday’s sugar overdose I decided to take this challenge for myself. I am giving up sugar for 40 days.
If you know me you know that sugar is my life. I cannot go a day without adding it in my coffee or having a dessert. Well today I am challenging myself. I am saying byebye to sugar, at least for 40 days. I do not know how long I will last. My goal is to be away from it for 40 days.
You may ask why 40 days? Well I have recently finish a meditation challenge of 40 days. I was able to do it, in fact it improved my life & I miss it. I am waiting for my next 40 day meditation challenge, and with that in mind I decided to challenge myself physically by giving up my guilty indulgence and to show myself that I can live without it.
So here is my challenge, I will be keeping you updated with my progress on my Instagram stories & here!
Anyway let’s see how it goes! πŸ€žπŸ™

Valentines day: love yourselfΒ 

To all my singles or coupled people out there just wanted to wish a lovely valentines day. May it be filled with love & joy! And to all also always keep in mind to love yourself and take care of you! That is very important because if we do not love ourselves how can we expect someone else to love us? 

It is a very important question. 

One thing that has helped me a lot to love myself has been meditation, exercise, and letting go of things that no longer serve a purpose. 

Currently in my headspace app I am at the stage where I can pick the packages I want to focus on. I am currently on level 2 of the self esteem one. I can attest that it has been very helpful. I do not know if you can relate but sometimes I have an inner voice that wakes up some doubt in me. This package has helped me to let go of the voice, not quiet it nor leave it behind, but rather to identify it as just a thought or a feeling and move on. Not trying to understand why is there or what does it mean rather just identify it as either a feeling or a thought and continue on! Which has been key! So to all of you out there I highly recommend taking the time and starting on meditation. 

Another aspect to improve your self esteem is the acceptance of who you are. Respect of who you are. And valorization of who you are. With that in mind you will always value yourself and let go of things that do not appreciate you or respect you! Therefore letting go of anything that does not bring you peace or leaves you drained or doubtful of your worth or who you are! 

Working out has also helped me a lot! Just the release of any tension or conflict you may be going through can be let go by a good work out! I love doing yoga, pilates, & weight lifting. I miss my cardio ( I used to run a lot but always ended up with back & knee pain so it no longer served a purpose) instead I am trying to walk more to get that cardio take but with those 3 I swear if I am grumpy in the morning, which I tend to be, post work out I have a clear mind and I’m more at peace plus less grumpy! Follow it with 10 minutes of meditation and a wonderful shower and you are off to a good start! 
So on this day not only love others but most importantly love YOU, as that love will flourish to others! 

Anyway my rant is up! Hope you have a wonderful V-Day! πŸ’‹πŸ’œπŸ’‹πŸ’œ

Keeping Up With My GoalsΒ 

Hi guys! Hope you are all having a great Tuesday! Today’s post is on how I am trying to maintain my goals. 

In this year of making things happen and keeping a positive healthy mind, one thing that has reminded me of what I wish to attain has been my uncle’s bracelet. 

I gave it to him about 15 years ago or even more! Anyway we lost him 13 years ago this year, it was a very sad and probably one of the worst if not the worst days of my life. Will tell his story in time but given that I have lost him and he could not grow older and accomplish his goals. I keep this bracelet on everyday to remind me of what he was not able to accomplish but that I can. 

A couple of years I almost lost it and got so scared that I did not wear it for over 3 years, needless to say those were the toughest years I have experienced. I think he even protects me! So for now on he is here with me helping me through this journey and reminding me of what I have an opportunity to do that he does not.

To any of you out there who want to “Make this year your year” and accomplish things you have set, I would advice you to wear something dear to you to have as a reminder of what you wish to do!  




Have a great Tuesday! And see you tomorrow! πŸ˜˜πŸ’‹βœŒοΈπŸ’œ

Learning To Let Go

Today’s post is an important one. I was hesitant on sharing it but given that today is my birthday and that this year I wanted to make some changes, I decided to go for it and share it sooner than I anticipated.

When I decided to start this journey, I wanted to make it as open and real as possible. With this openness I also wanted to share some “lessons” that I have learned so far.

A key one has been learning to let go. Though it is very hard, it is important. What I mean by learning to let go is to know when to stop certain situations and just let them be.

An important experience I have had in the past years has been on friendships. As you go from being a “kid” to kinda being an adult, there are certain people you lose along the way.

Though it is very hard to accept this, some people were part of your life at one moment for who knows the reason. When that “treasured” friendship changes and is no longer healthy, you have to learn to let it go. Be thankful for the time you have spent and just accept that there is no longer a space for them in your life.

This goes for friendships that, I do not know if you have experienced this, but it is when you meet up with someone that you valued a lot in your life but suddenly you do not have anything in common, and not only that, but the person does not have the best interest of you at heart. Or every time you meet up with them you are left with the feelings of dread, anguish, tiredness, and dissapointment.

What I have learned is that there is no friendship that has more value than your own sanity. For your health and peace of mind is better to look back appreciate the moments you had with this person or people and just let them go. At the end you will be happier. It does not mean that you wont be able to see them ever again, it just means that the close bond you shared is no longer there. Though you may occasionally see them, just know that things have changed and is best to walk your own way.

Just wanted to share this thoughts and hope it gives an insight and help through this moment to anyone out there!

Now off to watch the game!! πŸ˜‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
