When your hair is a mess but you’re in a good mood. 🙂 Tomorrow is the last day of the meditation challenge I participated in and posted about a while ago. I must admit it took a few days—maybe more than a few to get adjusted to making the time to quiet my mind and focus and actually mediate. I would probably say that is what I am most proud about. My mind freaking wanders!!! Miles a minute. So slowing down and clearing it to focus my intentions in meditation continues to be something I am working on.
My Top 5 FA(Fitness)Q
1. What do you like about working out?
A: I didn’t always. I reluctantly started for aesthetic purposes. Mainly because I wanted a bigger butt. (Haha) but after consistently putting in the work, and seeing the results, I got hooked. What I love most about fitness is the transformational opportunities we are ALL capable of. Mentally and physically. It has taught me discipline, and patience. It’s also a damn good stress reliever if you ask me.
Chess. Not Checkers.
But…before anything else, she must be aware.
I had the opportunity to share my experience visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum as a contributing writer for a pretty cool travel blog. Geared more towards young travelers or just young at heart hipsters that crave a little culture in their life. Sure I could’ve chosen to write about a cool shopping district or about that one night I danced my heart out till 5 am, but I decided to share something more meaningful and personally sentimental. Defiantly one of the highlights of my trip to Japan.

Fight or flight
I mean. Really.
Meditation challenge with me
I was introduced to Deepak Chopra by a dear friend of mine. They gifted me with one of his books and since then I have added two more to my collection. He’s prophetic. Oprah and himself are the masterminds behind this meditation challenge. I joined, and I wanted to extend the invitation to anyone else that may be interested. It starts Monday, March 16th and lasts for 21 days. The best part ? It’s free.
Here is the link to sign up:
Let’s work on Manifesting our true desires together!! 🙂
Peace Sign = Cheese!!
The sheer pride and compassionate detail that was put into this little garden tucked ever so gently in the middle of the city was photo and share worthy in my opinion. So unassuming. Not to mention my outfit had me feeling extra cool too. Wearing my favorite Hiroshima Toyo Carps cap IN Hiroshima! I threw up the peace sign to contain my excitement. Otherwise I would have a big cheesy smile and my eyes would be closed. No bueno. Moral of the story?
There is always a bit of serenity within the chaos. It’s easy to overlook but it’s even easier to enjoy. Stop and smell the roses my friends.
Alil sauna Ab action.
Top: Bicycle crunches.
-Try to bring your elbow to the opposite knee and alternate.
Middle: Side plank with oblique crunch
-Tap the ground with your hip and bring back to starting position.
Bottom: Straight leg reverse crunch
-To make this easier you can bend your legs at the knee and raise your hips off of the ground. Here, I am doing the same movement, except I straightened my legs. Straight or bent, feet aren’t to touch the ground.
NOTE: These can be performed virtually anywhere. Make sure to be hydrated and listen to your body when doing in the sauna.
My favorite Number with abs is 25, and I do 4 sets. 100, baby. And obviously I think about donuts the whole time.
I feel deeply… And… I’m okay with that…now.
I’ve never had the pleasure to meet such beautiful souls. These four right here….As genuine as it gets. I have learned, grown, admired, and aspired because of them. They hold a dear place in my heart. The interpersonal interactions we experience in our lives are not by coincidence. Change the channel. Look for the hidden lessons-read the context clues. Life is too short for empty exchanges.
