ZUMBAAA<<<333

Standard

Zumba….ZUMBA…. ???

So, I LOVE food as you can tell:) But the biggest thing that has helped is fitness.

I don’t use the word exercise!
Moving is fun REALLY fun….

So I will give you some ideas and the pros and cons of each…..
crossfit, walking, running, zumba, hiit, weights, dancing, zumba, etc…

Also will show you some awesome blogs and programs for help and ideas too:) Food of course has to be in there too. Please spread the word and leave comments:)

So today I started with zumba well cuz I took my second zumba class and its fresh on my mind. I’ll be honest its not my favorite but its because I’m so type A shaking my stuff was really hard not knowing what I was doing!

So basically what it is /// is a ton of girls dancing it up to latin music high energy jumping and playing around.

PROS::::
—Super fun
—Definitly not like exercise
—High energy
—Low stress and if its the right class no “weight Loss” focus
—Everyone is super nice and accepting
—Brings out your kid and playful side!

CONS::;
—They don’t really show you the moves so you feel pretty lost
—From a fitness standpoint theres not a lot of toning just jumping around

QUESTION::: What do you think of Zumba?

BLOG TAKES A TURN!

Standard

Hey well it has been a long time!  *****************

This blog is definitely going to take a turn. I have been on a huge journey for myself and didn’t want to post until I could really bring you something that was working for me. I am now doing well. I am not eating raw, vegan, juicing. Nope yummy food is involved. Overnight oats, omelets, power bowls (credit over to powercakes), fish, pancakes and more. I have become something of a chef and cannot wait to share it with you.

I also feel the site can be a sense of support for everyone. Recovery is not just from eating disorders, drugs or alcohol. What about the person who self esteem is so low, or is trapped in her exercise routine or diet or is addicted to shopping. It is all  pain that is coming out sideways. Which is why I am really focusing on the blog.
Also I changed my site name because I feel that people  (like myself) live so much in the past they forget about the future and do not realize that everything that happens is

ALL THEIR STORY!

Yoga to help you “go”

Standard

So todays post is kind of funny but its true who doesn’t want to go, right? I have a set of yoga poses that always help me out and I hope they help you too!

Yoga routine:

Start sitting Indian Style with your hands in the recieving position. Set your intention and close your eyes.

Next Lie Gently on your back and we are gonna do wind relieving pose.

Start by pulling your right leg into your chest avoiding your ribcage and look down chin to chest pull HARD it should hurt a bit in your hip. massaging the ascending colon.

Repeat on left side. Then you will pull both legs in looking down trying to get spine on floor. Repeat at least two times holding the poses for at least 30 seconds.

          

Next is a simple spinal twist. They are quite comonly done. All twists are great for digestion so I would look into it, but heres a great one.  Just lie down pull your right leg in the across your body, keep your shoulder down and look to your left. Then repeat on the other side. Sometimes for an advancement I like to wrap my legs around like eagle pose!

Next is a version of cat pose. THIS IS MY FAVORITE! I always feel it! Get on your hands and knees. Then bring your chest to the floor. Arms out in front of you and if you can chin to floor. Hold. Then wrap your right arm underneath your chest. Then left. Hold each pose. To demonstrate is the cat himself;).

This is the best one ever.

Good luck going! Let me know how it works!
