Heavily Meditated

April 11, 2022

Mia The Diva

Hey Divas,

So here we are 70+ days into meditation practicing. Shout out to Teresa, Diva Spice with a lil Chai for getting me hip to guided meditation zoning in to zone out.

Breath is life. We would die if we go more than 5 minutes or so without it. None of this life is happening without breath. Practicing meditation has taught me that.

I had done some hot yoga years ago it was my first introduction to meditation then just really started learning about it for the past year or so.

I recently started practicing daily for a little over a month now when l rise, a mid day when l can and before bed.

I’ve logged over 3k hours that’s a whoooooolllle Lottta “ Whoooosa”

I definitely needed to take a step back. I was in a space of feeling overwhelmed, resentful, and overall sense of being stuck in my life. I’ve spent my entire adult life catering to everyone and everything but me. – Not a good look for a Diva!

It left me feeling taken for granted and l felt used most of the time. I had to be honest with myself that 75% of my motivation was people pleasing. Then l woke up and realized l don’t owe anyone anything as they don’t owe me.

When we lose people in our life by death or by choice it leaves room. It leaves space. I’ve learned to embrace the emptiness l even welcome it most of the time. I ask myself ok, what’s next?

Honestly All I have to do is live and die and l plan on doing just that. Keeping it Fly n Fabulous! Of course.

Daily Meditation has given me the gift of how to fill the holes of my soul. lt has given me the gift of truly loving myself. It is the most private intimate experience to have with yourself just being present with your breath and in tune with your body. It truly means to surrender to the moment.

To my surprise l am able to meditate in as little of 5 minutes to 15 minutes. It is the ultimate form of self care, self love but most importantly self compassion.

When we love on ourselves it literally flows into every aspect of our life. The overflow goes to everyone and everything instead of us pulling from ourselves. It pulls us within ourselves. Having an awareness of self gives us choices.

To overextended ourselves and not have any boundaries is the ultimate betrayal. The betrayal of self. Anyone can turn their back on you. People will disappoint you. It’s Life. To turn your back on yourself is the ultimate betrayal because you will never rise higher than your own standards.

I challenge you to stop. To pause. To take a deep breath in of all the goodness in your life and exhale all of what is no longer serving you in your life! Lay down and line up those chakra stones and gets to breathing dear diva!

Be Healthy Be Fabulous Be You!

Namaste.

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.

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

January 19, 2022

Mia The Diva

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!

Stop Expecting YOU from other people

November 17, 2021

Mia The Diva

Hi Divas!

It’s a harsh reality. Too many times we expect “ us “ from others. Some people will give you their entire ass to kiss regardless of your relationship with them. Regardless of your friendship. Regardless of your family ties.

Stop expecting YOU from other people

This is a physical world and people will be people out for themselves. Givers will be givers and takers will be takers until the end of times.

The hardest lesson but the greatest lesson of my life is the importance of making myself a priority and self care. Everyone and everything took priority over me. My body and my life was a reflection of that. Not a good look for a Diva!

Self Care is how we fill up our cups. Love You some You Dear Diva!!

My cup ran empty it was not replenished. As we know we can not pour from an empty cup.

I ended up feeling emotionally drained, used, and taken advantage of most the time.

The hard reality l had to face is that a part of me allowed that behavior due to my lack of boundaries.

Boundaries. What are they? Anything that doesn’t feel good is when a boundary has been crossed.

In that moment diva has 3 choices. She can address it, take it, or move on from it.

A diva doesn’t have to make anyone’s bullshit her reality. F—that. We are here to receive what overflows from our Fabulousness. Graciously.

Be Healthy Be Fabulous Be You!

Failing to plan? Plan to Fail

November 8, 2021

Mia The Diva

Hey Divas,

Here l am getting back on track. The art of allowing. I’m in a space of life where l don’t have to get it all right. I’ve lived enough life to know what l like and what l don’t for the most part.

I know that l don’t like feeling tired and tapped out. I don’t like feeling drained. I don’t like feeling stressed, even though it’s healthy sometimes and a part of life. I do like how l feel after eating right and clean. I do like when l am actually on time for things. It reduces my stress and l am able to be fully present.

The sacrifice to eating clean is the prepping. It takes time and l am working on ways to perfect it to balance it in my life. If I don’t plan I go straight to what’s most convenient or miss a meal. Not a good look for a diva! lt’s all a work in progress but I take things day by day.

I’ve been chronicling my journey and got off track these past couple of weeks after losing my Uncle to cancer. I would think by now l would have this grief thing down but with every death a piece of me dies too. Every death is painful no matter how much you prepare for it. You’re never prepared when it actually happens.

My Uncle was a second Dad to me. He was the version of my Dad who broke all the rules. He lived in his truth and unapologetically.

Everything is eventual. This one hurts so bad.

I’m staying on the course and not allow grief to get me off the course. I’m in a space of life that l understand death is a reality of life as it is necessary and natural but it doesn’t take away the hurt.

I’m learning to process death while still keeping my priorities in tact by having goals but more so than that making a commitment to them because without making a commitment it just adds to the list of failures.

Set realistic goals and expectations. It’s okay—and healthy—to realize you cannot be 100% successful at everything all at once. Be mindful of the things you can control and work on accepting the things that you can’t control.

Fall down 1000 times get back up 1001.
