The Real Flex

January 31, 2022

Hi Divas!

Here we are into a New Campaign season!

So what’s the real flex on a wellness journey?

Self Awareness for sure.

I started detoxing last week drinking lemon water, celery juice and detox smoothie to start my day. l’m working on being more active on my trampoline. I have long work days, honestly do not have the time on my work days to work out but will go outside to walk on my off days. So for now l get in my jumps throughout the day and it gives me a boost.

I noticed feeling tired in spite of eating healthier. I have my energy throughout the day which is great but still my body is catching up if that makes sense. I’ve been food journaling which has been helpful to understand my habits and improvements over time.

Having an awareness gives you choices.

It’s also important to know where you’re going. Where do you see yourself one year from now? Really think about it. Think about it in every aspect of your life. We all need something to look forward to.

So for starters that we are officially in Campaign Season we will start with our goals.

Breaking down a goal can be overwhelming and a year can seem so far away even though they seem to fly by so fast at the same time.

Write down your Ultimate Goal – This is what we want to ultimately achieve. Write down what you will need to do in order to achieve that goal. Be honest with your self and what barriers can be in the way of stopping you. Then start slashing them one by one. In short make your goals your bishh .

No small goal in between is too small only as long as it is bringing you to your ultimate vision.

So we start with long term goals, what will we need to do monthly to get there, what will we need to do weekly. What will we need to do daily?

Then Reward yourself for each goal achieved in each category start learning how to pamper and treat yourself that has nothing to do with food to keep you inspired and on the course!

Be Healthy Be Fabulous Be You!

This is how we DETOX

January 26, 2022

Hey Divas!

Detoxing? What does it all mean? So as we approach another Campaign Season just a reminder we don’t have to wait another calendar year to pull it together!

I started learning more about detoxing during the pandemic l learned a few things that changed the game for me and upped my detox game.

When eating a lot of meat, processed foods, starchy food and sugar it interferes with the body’s ability to cleanse itself of toxins. When we replace these foods with fruits & veggies ( antioxidants) our body begins to detox & do the repair work.

The Liver. Should l say the Liiiivaaa. It really runs the show of our bodies. It does everything from converting food into energy it’s the source of our metabolism mojo it helps the body fight infections. It gets all the toxic “ ish “ out our bodies along with our kidneys so keeping these gals in tip top shape is vital.

I start my morning everyday with what l call my “dirt” smoothie. It’s my go to on the daily to set my liver up for the best day.

I’ve been consistent for the past week almost and have already felt a reduction in bloating and lost a few pounds. I will share more about it and the recipe in a future post it’s a part of my morning regimen that deserves a post of its own. It’s a whole regimen.

I wanted to focus on detox in this post so subscribe & follow a diva for future blog post to stay in the loop if you have not already!

I have more energy and don’t need a nap mid day l’ve been getting up earlier to get my day started on a positive note. I’ve felt good in general most days but get sprints of lightheadedness.

Possibly need to eat more or drink more water. I thought then did my research and it’s a part of the detoxification process and my body beginning to heal. I had to work on myself and self awareness.

The nutrition is pulling everything together and everything now is making sense of what l have worked so hard on these past couple years.

There is no straight arrow on this journey you just have to go through it your life ish. There are no shortcuts. Hang in there dear diva it gets better.

My “ Dirt “ Smoothie

Consistency has always been an issue for me but it is key to everything! I finally get it. So day by day step by step l just keep moving forward.

I’m starting small so once l get one thing down l will move on to the next. Changing your lifestyle is not complicated but challenging your mindset takes commitment and dedication.

Be Healthy Be Fabulous! Be You!

3 Tips to Set Yourself up for the Best Day and Best 2022!

January 19, 2022

Hi Divas!

So we just got through that nostalgic time of year and also that time when optimism is at it’s peak. So take advantage of this positive energy!

So many things can knock a diva’s day off let alone her year. So here are a few tips to get those positive vibes going and morning rituals!

1. Eat before working out Fuel Up Divas!

You’ll get more of a boost and if you are into early riser kind of workouts find an easy digestible carb that is low in fat and fiber. A banana is great to give you energy without causing tummy issues before exercising.

2. Drink Up! Cheers!

Post work out recovery go-to’s Vitamin C for muscle repair and breakfast a smoothie or bar that has a mix of carbs proteins and fiber to help repair muscles and replenish energy.

When a diva is dried out from not getting hydrated is not a good look for a diva! To stay on your game it’s best to keep hydrated throughout the day.

Standard rule of thumb is to divide half your current body weight into ounces to make sure you’re hitting those water goals! It’s a good idea to bring a 16 oz water bottle try to drink the whole thing during your 1 hour work out.

Plastic water bottles are thought to be a health risk because of the recycled plastic. Harmful chemicals are emitted from these bottles, and these chemicals might cause cancer.

By switching it up to stainless steel, you can prevent harmful carcinogens from leaching into your drinking water. So l use a stainless steel metal bottle. It’s safe and it can also keep fluids hot or cold.

3. Create good vibes & go outside!

There is a freshness and sense of freedom working out outside. Just something about crisp morning air in the colder months and the freshness of a new morning during the summer months.

Alas Let it Go dear diva!

Music! Who loves a good ole booty shake! My playlist ranges a little bit of everything Black Eyed Peas is my Go- To Yes! That 40 plus Club playlist be FiYa!! Fast high energy music has been proven to increase endurance a diva can go a little further and also adds a happy distraction 🙂

Let it all Go! Let it all OUT! It’s been a year! A tough one for a lot of us out here.

Take heart that Strong emotions are exhausting and can be draining. Physically too. I couldn’t really put my finger on why l was tired for no real reason.

Where the mind goes energy flows stressing and negativity is definitely a drain but it’s still energy. Put it to good use having a Super Fly workout or better yet clean your house! Two in one deal!

Happy New Year Divas! May your 2022 Be Your BEST & FLYEST Yet!

Be Healthy! Be Fabulous! Be You!
