Tackle Your Tuesday: Start Slow


Happy Tuesday to all of you! I hope you are all having an amazing day. Have you ever had to get up from your sleep in a hurry? That feeling of “oh crap” I didn’t hear my alarm or I’ve been snoozing a little too long? It is the worst feeling right? All of the sudden you are out of bed in the cold rushing to get it altogether to make it out the door and to work on time. In situations like this; it not only throws off my routine, but my body as well. I don’t feel center and grounded. I feel like a chicken with its head cut off. Lol! Although this does not happen every morning, it has taught me to deal with my mornings different.

Try starting slow. A successful morning depends on how you take control of it. How you decide to respond to the first 20 minutes of your day sets the tone for your entire day. If you hear your alarm clock go off in the morning, do me a favor, don’t hit the snooze button. Instead turn it off and lay there for a minute. Enjoy being alive. Thank God for waking you up in the morning, and find 3 things to be grateful for. Then when you are ready sit up on your bed. Feel the energy throughout your body. Do a little stretch while sitting there. Then gather yourself, touch the ground with your feet, and begin the day.

This is how I like to start my day. Nice and easy. I try to stick to this routine every day. I start slow and build my momentum. I challenge you to start your day slow. In a world where we want our information faster, our food quicker, and everything else RIGHT NOW, I challenge you to set the tone for your day slowly. Let me know if it works for you tomorrow! Be well you guys!

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Thoughtful Thursday: Greasy Food

befunky-design23

Hi Everyone and Happy Thursday to you all! I have a confession to make… I have been eating terribly since Saturday. I don’t know what is going on! I just want comfort food! It is no coincidence that yesterday just so happen to be National Greasy Food Day. Although I have been indulging in bad foods this week, I am still reminded of what these foods will do to me in the long run.

Consider how you feel after you eat greasy food. You feel heavy, tired, and sluggish. It is more than likely you will be good and ready for a nap after. The fact is greasy food is just fat. Too much saturated, trans fat, and bad cholesterol will eventually clog your arteries and lead to all kinds of health problems.

Immediate affects may include weight gain, bloating, and acne. Long term affects include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease or stroke. I am sure most of you already know this information. My intentions are not to harp on you, but to give you a sense of awareness. Although I love the warm feeling of comfort food, I know I have to make smart decisions for my long term health. That is not to say I won’t have bad food every once in a while, but everyday is too much. We should eat with the purpose of nourishing our bodies; not destroying it. I will definitely try to do better for the remainder of the week. I hope you do too. Be well you guys.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Motivational Monday: Be A Shifter

Hello everyone, and happy Monday to you all. With everything that is going on in Houston and the surrounding areas I just want to encourage you tonight. I read an Instagram post that said the best thing about a natural disaster is that it brings out the best in human beings. In times of disaster or heartbreak for pain our strongest defense is to remain positive. It is to remain hopeful. When you walk into a room to be a shifter. Aspired to lift spirits. Aspire to change the negative to the positive. I always want to have a presence that commands the room in a positive way. Filling the room with happiness and genuine concern. Although I cannot change what is going on in Texas I can provide a listening ear and a word of encouragement to those I know in the mist of it. It is normal to feel down in times like these, but don’t give up. You are strong. You are blessed. You are a child of God. My prayers always thought of you. May God protect you and keep you safe. Be well you guys.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Motivational Monday: Make Time

Hi Everyone and Happy Monday to all of you. I recently had a conversation with a dear friend of mine, and we were talking about how life gets so busy we can lose priority of the time we get to spend with the ones we love. I know for me everything can get so busy sometimes that I barely get a chance to just sit and enjoy. We are working on goals, at work, dealing with kids, or planning out our next move. We must not get so wrapped up in the constant “go” of life, and forget the people that mean the most to us. Just like any other thing in your life relationships are something that you also have to work at. You truly get what you give. So I just want to encourage you today. Don’t take advantage of those close relationships that you cherish the most because you never know when they will be gone. Every day is a new day to strengthen you as well as someone else. Make the time and be present for somebody else. Sometimes that is all we need. Be well you guys.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Fit For Thought: Learn how to advocate for yourself 

Dedicated to all my queens! It’s time to take control of your circumstance. I run into so many women who are not where they want to be in life, and they tend to blame it on everyone else. When really it is time to look in the mirror and change into the person God intended you to be. Certain things you’re just going to have to live with, but if you have to make a choice to change, make the right choice. Be assertive, not aggressive.  Ask for help if you need it. Be willing to stand for yourself, your family, and your community.  Most importantly stay encourage and ask God for help. Nothing is out of your reach. You can do it!
Be well you guys! 

Live. Love. Well & Fit.
