working out WASN’T about
-trying to keep up with the Joneses (no pun intended)
but instead WAS about
-overall health (both physical AND mental)
-being a role model for your child(ren)
-taking care of your ❤️ so you can live a long and prosperous life...(per the American Heart Association, we should “Get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes per week of vigorous aerobic activity, or a combination of both, preferably spread throughout the week”
Can we please stop shaming ourselves when it comes to fitness, and instead make it about becoming our very best selves!!
Enrollment is now OPEN for my “New Year, New You” virtual fitness bootcamp beginning January 14! Let’s make 2019 about health, happiness, and self love!! .
The good news is when you sign up you will INSTANTLY have access to a Netflix of workouts to prep you for the bootcamp (because if you’re anything like me you probably think you have to be in shape BEFORE doing a bootcamp) 🤦🏻♀️
There’s no better time than NOW! You deserve to be a priority! Drop an emoji in the comments below OR in a private message and I’ll send you more info (absolutely no strings attached)!
When you wake up from a nap but you can’t move cuz your hooman is still sleeping
Not what I intended my new workout shoes to be used for, but when #napsarelife
, I guess anything can be a pillow!🐾
Rest until you feel like playing, then play until you feel like resting. -unknown .
This quote pretty much sums up how I function 😆. For day 6 of #namasleightheholiday
we are sharing what recharges us. Besides yoga, naps recharge me, since this isn’t a nap challenge (which sounds like a great idea for an instagram challenge 😉) then I’d have to pick Shoulderstands as the type of pose that recharges me. 🧘🏽♀️. What recharges you? What pose makes you feel like you hit a reset button or refuels you? .

What pose makes you feel: 🛷 Happy ✅ 🛷Flexible ✅ 🛷 Strong ✅ 🛷Determined ✅ 🛷Calm ✅ 🛷 Recharged ✅ 🛷Graceful 🛷Proud .
sweetest pup who loves napping most of the day
Carter man has been on TEN lately. I’m talking, purposely making messes two million times a day, screaming and throwing tantrums when he doesn’t get what he wants, banging his head, refusing naps (when he really needs it), waking up screaming in the night...I really could go on and on.
I have to remind myself multiple times a day to breathe, that he is only a toddler, that he hasn’t even been on this Earth for 3 years, and that he is still learning.
And then today happens...he NAPPED and went down without a fight (and Mama got plenty of cuddles), he put his dirty dishes in the sink, and he washed his hands with soap and threw away his paper towel. 😭
Days like today lets me know that all we do is not for nothing and that he actually retains what we teach him. I love this little boy with all my heart. But oh boy, these toddler years are tough.

Catnaps have been crucial to staying healthy, happy and energized lately! With morning classes and working nights sometimes it’s hard to get that recommended 7-8 hours of sleep 💤 So lucky I have this little one who is always willing to curl up on the couch with me and get a bit of rest ✨ Our culture can be super demanding, always pushing us to do more, to keep going, that we often forgot how important it is to rest and take care of ourselves. We often underestimate how vital sleep is to our health since we’re able to function and adapt to less. So here’s a quick little reminder for you to try and carve out those 8 hours for sleeping, and when you can’t short naps can do wonders 😉 #catnap #catlover #sleeptime #napsarelife #takecareofyourself #restisgood #slowdown #yogalife #crystalvision #workhardsleepharder #brainpower #wednesdaywisdom
