New Changes

Hello beautiful friends, 

I hope that January has treated you well. I have been having a pretty chill month, the holidays really wore me out with all the partying and drinking that we did so I decided to take a bit of a break from that. I restarted the Bikini Body Guide program and honestly, I just haven't been able to get into it and you know what, thats okay. I was being a little tough on myself for not keeping up with it but instead I decided to be kind to myself and remembered I have been practicing yoga every day so its not like I haven't been doing any form of exercise! 

Let me tell you, yoga is seriously the shit. I've tried to do the yoga thing before but it never stuck, I always thought it was too boring and since my flexibility is horrible I felt that it was a waste of time. But this year after a couple of sessions I have found myself thinking about it daily and having a craving to do it. That being said I've decided to focus a little more on my new interest and learn a little deeper and see where this new journey will go. I have been feeling the need to still get some cardio in and since I have a free membership at the mma gym I'm working at, I've decided to start taking some kickboxing classes. With everything that has been going on in the world as of late I do think it's a good idea to have a little self defence training haha hopefully I'll never need it but at least I'll have it. 

Back to yoga, I got these three books at the library and started the Happy Yoga book right when I got home. The introduction piqued my interest pretty quickly so, I'm looking forward to drawing myself a bath and reading some more.

I also want to learn a little more about my inner self and spirituality, I was raised catholic and while I do believe in a god and still regularly say my prayers, I am finding myself wanting to expand my beliefs a little more. While I'm not 100% sure where I want to go, what I want to learn or what is really catching my attention, I know I want to start with these books and see where they can take me. Here's to trying new things. 




We're three days into the new year and I'm feeling good... really good. Even though 2016 gave me a beating that I never saw coming a few good things did happen... I had the most amazing wedding, Portugal won the cup (finally!!!!) and I got my fur baby Dexter. 

I don't want to sit here and talk about all my resolutions because I think that those are promises you make yourself and not everyone needs to hear them. Instead I will talk about my word(s) for the year which is Self-Love. For 2017 I have decided to really focus on my health, not just physical health but my mental health too. I had a rough and emotional early 2016, I felt stressed and depressed and really didn't know how to pull myself out of it until one day I just did. Although, I pulled myself out of the funk my motivation for working out, eating healthy or anything that really would benefit my wellbeing was totally and completely gone. I just stopped caring and while not giving a fuck is certainly freeing I don't think my body appreciates the crap I put it through. 

This year I want to focus on loving myself the way I deserve. I want to nourish my body with healthy foods, exercise and meditation. I want to treat myself the way I imagine a queen would treat herself. With only the finest foods, finest men (MAN for me) and only speak to myself with positive compliments. 

Life is a crazy, busy and bumpy rollercoaster but it's the BEST rollercoaster there is. We are so lucky to be born and to be living in a world that has so much beauty and I really want to embrace that. Join me on my journey this year, I can't wait to see what 2017 will bring.
