Yo. Slow Down. Just bE.

January 11, 2018

So, it’s the New Year. Who cares? Really? We are over 10 days in and I would venture to guess most people have already begun to slow down, come off track or stopped with their so called~ ‘2018 I’m Gonna Own You’ mentality.

Every New Year I realize I have learned one most important lesson; I have taken this lesson with me into my outlook for 2018 and the years to come and here it is~

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even when your whole world seems upset. Just bE. Let things happen. Let things go. People. Situations. Relationships. Situationships. See what and who sticks in your life. Manifest on your own; the rest will follow.

When it feels like our world is spinning out of control, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. We put so much pressure on ourselves. At the end of our days, we won’t care about our to-do lists. We will wish we had loved more, lived more and been at peace. Cultivate stillness within and know that there is no rush.

YO. SLOW DOWN. JUST bE. Hustle with heart not ego, doubt or fear of losing out. It’s 2018. So what… It’s one more year that will fly by…

UnF*ck Yourself.

November 10, 2017

The Urban Dictionary defines this as:

Exorting someone to 1)resolve a weird/bad situation they put themselves into 2)take care of their own problems in a timely manner.

Alright. So how did you get into the situation in the first place?

Your thoughts. Your headspace. Whatever it is you tell yourself puts you exactly in a f*cked up situation if those thoughts you keep repeating are f*cked up. You can easily become a victim of the rules you live by and you can best believe that anytime you defeatedly ask yourself “WTF is my problem?” “WHY is this happening to me?” “HOW did I get here?” the answer can be found right on the corner of: Your Limitations & BS Subconscious Beliefs.

No matter what you say you want, if you keep wishing for it and not believing you actually deserve it; you 1) Will only use but a portion of this limitless power all of us (YES, ALL OF US) has and with that type of attitude you will only live but a fraction of the life you could potentially have. Hence, feeling like you’re f*cked. 2) Will not ‘get’ that the Universe matches our vibration and that what you put into it, it will give you back. If you don’t understand that the Universe ain’t no fool and that it does want you to have all your heart desires, then you’re the actual damn fool for not taking advantage of this. Adjust your attitude, and see how quickly if you raise your vibration, believe that everything you desire is in fact available to you… You’ll ‘unf*ck yourself.’

Get into reality. Remember that YOU are responsible for YOU.

Remember that you are your #1. When you are living as the best version of yourself you are a better somebody to everybody around you. Put your priorities first. Other people’s needs and drama can occupy a f*cked up amount of our energy and attention, if you let them. Sit with the winners. The conversation will be different and you will begin to believe in yourself as you see those around you believing in theirselves and living the life they know they deserve. You are a product of your environment. Don’t roll with a crew of negative, dramatic, whoa is me f*ckers.

Get the f*ck out of your cozy little comfort zone.

Fear is the worst F word of all. So if you are offended by my use of the ‘F Bomb’ I’m sorry, but you have it backwards. Your fear is the real offence. We’ve made being in fear a habit. Want to ‘unf*ck yourself’? Stop being afraid! Pull yourself out of a situation by being your own hero. KICK YOUR FEAR TO THE CURB. Believe in yourself. BELIEVE you deserve so much more. Fear will always be there. Ready to tell you to sit your ass back down and stay right where you are. It is up to you to stand up to it. Ignoring your fears is pretty simple, but we have played victim to it for most of our life. More often than not, we think we’ve made a decision to solve a problem but what we’ve really done is put a half ass effort into it until it gets too uncomfortable to really see its resolve through. Then where do you end up? Right back to where you started. You just f*cked yourself again.

Know this. We live in a very generous Universe. We are not f*cked. We are blessed. We are capable, loveable, resilient and wise. If you keep telling yourself you are undeserving, too exhausted and unlucky~ YOU will keep f*cking yourself over…and over again.

Have your own desires and unwavering mindset that ain’t NOBODYcan f*ck with. Do not surrender to your own fears or those nah sayers around you, that’s their own inflicted fear. Know that anything is possible and achievable. Your journey may need to be adjusted and corrected; but having a mindset that you are doing the best you can at any given point in your life, that you will push through. Give your fears the middle finger and manifest whatever your heart desires~ Gives YOU your SUPERPOWER at any given time to… Unf*ck Yourself.

5 Exercise Rules You Can Totally Ignore.  

Just Like Texts From Your Ex.

September 17, 2017

It’s always a rewarding feeling after you’ve conquered a workout in the gym. You’ve been focused and determined; slaying away in the gym harder than you ever have before. There’s just one thing frustrating you. You aren’t seeing the results you were hoping for after a solid amount of committed time and effort to your workout program.
 
With your relationship to your training, there are a few non-negotiables when it comes to seeing your fitness results: you should be doing some sort of training on a regular basis and you need to keep a healthy balanced meal plan. If you aren’t eating properly you will not achieve your results. Bottom line. But that’s an article for another time.
 
If you are looking to maximize your training sessions, let’s go over 6 workout rules you can totally, completely ignore.
 
Rule #1: You should never eat before a morning workout.
 
Fact: This one is outrageous. Would you get into your car and drive it on an empty gas tank? You wouldn’t get very far. The same can be applied to your body driving you through your workout. Your body needs fuel to function. People think they’ll burn more fat in the morning if they don’t eat before a workout, but if you are going to wake up and do an intense workout you should be eating 60-45 minutes prior to hitting the gym. Eating something with both carbs and protein will provide you with all the energy you need to blast though your workout morning, noon or night. A banana with a tablespoon of natural peanut butter. A smoothie. A rice cake with a tablespoon of almond butter and a drizzle of honey.
 
Rule #2: You should only stick to one workout.
 
Fact: Yes, If you want to plateau. There is however, always more than one way you can get to where you want to go. By keeping your workouts different, you can be sure that you will continue to achieve results and not be prone to feeling stagnate in a routine. Especially, if you are looking to gain lean muscle mass. Our bodies have an incredible way of adapting to stress. Changing up your routines will force you body to work harder and not remain complacent.
 
Rule #3: Pounding out time on the treadmill is the best for your cardio
and calorie burn.
 
Fact: All in all cardio workouts are important, especially if you are training for an endurance event you’ve set your heart on. But, if you want to mix things up, circuit routines that involve lifting weights or moving through bodyweight exercises at a quick pace are also great for building strength and burning fat. building muscle is important for calorie burn—while cardio burns more calories per minute, lifting weights can help you burn more calories after the workout ends as your muscles piece themselves back together post lifting weights and build lean muscle mass.
 
Rule #4: You have to be sore after a workout.
 
Fact: Never true. Do not be fooled by this. Just because you aren’t seeing results should not force you to feel that you need to go harder and feel sore for days to come.
Soreness does not equate to how hard you trained or how hard your workout actually was for your body. Your level of post-workout soreness can be a direct result of a slew of factors, ranging from the types of exercise you’re doing to your quality of recovery. I explain this to my clients often: Sure, you’ll want to step things up, but don’t feel like you need to push your body to an extreme in order to see gains. Or be in the gym for hours at a time for that matter as well.
 
Rule #5: When performing a squat never let your knees go past your toes.
 
Fact: Following this ‘golden rule’ could actually be affecting your form and hurting you more than helping you when squatting. This becomes detrimental to your form and limiting your mobility for a perfect squat or lunge. And remember, proper form leads to better results. Some people are just built differently and the truth is, at the very bottom of a squat, your knees can go slightly beyond your toes. The key here is not to let your knees extend so far forward that you put undo pressure on them, so there is a small range that is acceptable. So while your knees are important, focus on really pushing your butt back and down and keeping your weight in your heels throughout the movement.
