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 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!

5 Reasons Why I Walk
July 13, 2014

Because this is how I walk. OWN it!!!’
I remember my first fitness date so many years ago I told myself: “Today I Run.”
I made it to the mailbox.
I know many times we wanna hit the gym, join that online 30 day ab challenge, run a marathon, do a thousand sit-ups, pop in a P90x CD and ” Go Beast Mode ” take heat divas, sometimes the lofty goals although fantastic are just not realistic fitness goals to maintain when just starting out.
I have set lofty goals in the past only to end up disappointed and angry with myself for not keeping up and went right back to my X Mr. McNasty answering his late night foodie calls….as the saying goes… sometimes we have to walk before we can run.
Walking by far is the most effective and safest exercise for a diva just starting out on her healthy fitness journey. Lots of divas start by just simply walking.
Here are 5 Whys Why Walking is a great First Fitness Date!
1. It’s free no gym membership!
2. Just about every diva can do it from 2 to 102!
3. We use most of our energy walking in our day to day activity we do it daily!!!
4. Take it to the streets! You can walk anywhere the mall the office, around your house…
5. Get a pedometer! It’s an easy way to track activity a diva needs to know her math!
I’ve fought it for many years at the end of the day we have to know our numbers to lose but more importantly to maintain weightloss the daily goal to maintain healthy daily physical activity is 10,000 steps a day.
#FitTip Walking 30 minutes meets daily physical activity requirements to maintain physical activity requirements, take it easy divas you can work your way upto 10k! Rome was not built in a day!
So OWN it Diva Get Out there and Walk!
Be Healthy Be Fabulous!
