How To Kick Start Your Fitness Journey

How To Kick Start Your Fitness Journey

The 3 C’s in life:

Choice, Chance, & Change.

You must make the choice,

to take the chance,

if you want anything in life to change.

Okay, I’m probably the bajillionth person to write tips and advice on transitioning into a fitness routine, BUT I want to try to reach as many of my friends as I can because I care about them and I want them to live long, happy lives. Even if only five people read this, thats five more people in the world who are taking steps to better themselves. To all of my friends out there who have asked me for advice on exercising and eating right- this is for you. I love you guys!

I’m gonna start off by saying that this is a commitment to your health. It is a privilege to be able to exercise and use your body while you can walk, jump…Move! When you look at the big picture and imagine how you want to be living at 65 years old, taking care of your body now is key. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. So, you want to feel more energized, look better, and increase your confidence? Be part of that 5%.

One of my friends sent me a text asking “How do I start working out?” Well, you just have to start somewhere! When I first started committing to an exercise routine, I found Kayla Itsines body-weight workouts. Let me tell ya, those kicked my ass! Once I felt comfortable enough to venture into the weight-lifting world, I started going to the gym for resistance training. See, we all start somewhere! Personally, I think that mastering body weight exercises is a wonderful place for beginners. However, it depends on the person. Some people prefer running, or yoga for exercise. All are GREAT options, you just need to find your niche-something you can enjoy doing long term. Once it becomes part of your routine, it will be foreign not having it scheduled in to your day.

That brings me to another piece of advice; schedule and make time for your workouts! Whether it is 5AM or 9PM, find a time to take some pre-workout, listen to some banger tunes that get you motivated, and go move your body! (I listen to Spotify playlists, and there are tons of really great genres for all different types of exercise.) You will not only be improving your health, but you will also notice that you are sleeping better, have more energy during the day, and feel a sense of accomplishment.

I’m the type of person that prefers to workout alone. The gym is my personal time where I can handle the shit that is happening in my life. However, I know other people love to have an accountability buddy! Find an exercise buddy, discuss your fitness goals, and keep each other accountable for those goals. One of my friends and I have a goal of running five miles this week, and so far we are crushing it! It is just nice to have someone struggling with you, but also knowing that you’re both accomplishing something that is keeping you healthy and active is a wonderful feeling!

My final little nugget of advice is to pay no attention to what others are doing. Focus on you and what you have going for you. If you become easily intimidated by people in the gym, that’s okay, because I’ve been there! Honestly though, if you stick with it, you get over that feeling. Exercise can build you up in so many ways, including your confidence. Just keep in mind that the intimidating ones at the gym are there for them, and probably are only focusing on their gains (lol) instead of what you’re doing. If anyone ever says something mean to you, just call me up and i’ll kick some meat-head ass.

SO, next time you’re contemplating about going for a run, just send it! You’ll feel amazing after. It’s all about starting somewhere and progressing into more vigorous exercises. Challenging your body, challenges your mind as well, which always results in growth. It’s cheesy, but you really can accomplish anything you set your mind to. If you are reading this, and want to commit yourself to an exercise routine-do it! I believe in you! Tell your friends, family, dog, and don’t hold back.

It’s time for growth.

Life-Changing Habits to Start Now

Life-Changing Habits to Start Now

Happy Tuesday everyone! I am taking advantage of today to ease my mind and just relax before my night shift in a few hours. Once again, I am sitting in my favorite coffee house, ready to express the thoughts buzzing around in my head.

As of lately, I’ve had many people question my habits. I know they are just curious, but some times I feel like they think I’m weird for committing to these habits. I know they mean well, and they probably just want to know how I carry out these fixations daily. I guess it’s the insecurity in me that is afraid of explaining the ‘why’ behind my mannerisms.

I have noticed that if someone is doing something out of the ordinary in the bunch, others will be intrigued, and will either start to follow that individual or judge them. Well, if you find yourself always being the odd one out and carrying on with your own habits that spark conversation, don’t feel insecure! If anything, the people questioning you are simply showing you that you are interesting. Wouldn’t you rather be interesting vs. a dull individual?

Not gonna lie, I have some odd habits. However, I consider them “healthy” habits. They make me who I am and I’m proud of myself for committing to these habits because they make me feel good and inspire others to take care of themselves as well. 

Here are some of my habits that have changed my life for the betterment of my health.

1.) Hydrate In the Morning

Obviously, hydrate all day too! By this I mean to wake your body and digestion up with 16oz of some good ol’ H2O. Your body will thank you.

2.) Lift Some Weights

If you’re trying to lose weight, become more toned, or even put on some pounds of muscle, weights will be your friend! My morning weight lifting sessions have helped me over the years in so many ways. I always go to the gym around 6A.M. every day (except for Sundays) to start my day off on the right foot! Make time to take care of your body.

3.) Get Some Beauty Rest

This is SO important! Honestly, I am a little old lady when it comes to sleep. I usually go to bed around 8:30-9pm, which many of my friends tease me about. I love being productive, but I also love sleep. It is vital for all humans in order to function properly. Prioritize your sleep, and I promise you’ll be amazed by how your body reacts to a consistent sleep schedule.

4.) Cook Your Own Meals

Okay, I don’t always follow this because I am addicted to Whole Food’s salad bar. However, cooking your own meals can be healthier and cheaper for you in the long run! I always bring a prepared meal and snack with me wherever I go if I plan on being out of the house all day. If you don’t have the time to cook your own meals, there are plenty of healthy food options out in the world! Grocery stores, cafes, and even gas stations are so much more accommodating to healthy diets these days.

5.) Express Your Gratitude

Tell your loved ones how you feel about them, and do it often. It never hurts to tell someone you care so much about them, or that you have been thinking about them. You just may make their day! It will fill your heart with love, and that always makes one feel at ease. Life is short, you deserve to be treated right, and so do others.

That’s just a few of my healthy habits that I hope y’all start to implement into your lives! What are some of your weird/healthy/different habits? Feel free to share your thoughts below. 🙂

A Good Day

A Good Day

I’m back in the same coffee shop from my previous post. It is silent and tranquil. The owner of the coffee shop knows me by name, and she says it so sweetly. The music playing has a lo-fi vibe, which is perfect for writing in my opinion. My tea is refreshing with subtle hints of cactus blossom. My body aches less, and my mind feels a bit more clear.

It’s suppose to be quite warm today, around the mid 90’s. I use to dream of days like today, now I can happily say that I get to live in these moments daily. My tan is beginning to appear darker with each day, and my skin remains clear due to the vitamin D.

It’s been a while since I have had one of these days. That kind of day where you feel like nothing can disturb your peace of mind. I am going to pursue the kind of day where I can lay in bed tonight and blissfully say that it was a good day.

It’s such a mystery how the mind and body dance with grace to fabricate positive outcomes when there’s an entirely conflicting and dark side as it’s shadow.

I’ve been searching for myself for a while now, and I’m determined to find her within the glow of the sun and the twilight of the moon. Each day and night is an opportunity for growth.

Today is a good day.

A Bad Day

A Bad Day

“My anxiety is a child who plays tag with my intestines, braids fishtails with my pulse. While she naps unseen under caramel moons, I wake to find her blameless”

-Sade Andria Zabala

Don’t let the title get you twisted. Let me explain further.

You know those days where you constantly feel like your head is stuffed full, and it’s almost as if it could implode any moment? Yeah, I’ve been having that feeling a lot lately.

You feel grumpy, fatigued, and almost sickly. Your energy is low and all you want to do is either bust out all of your priorities, or hibernate under a weighted anti-anxiety blanket for the rest of the year. There isn’t really an in-between feeling.

Then, it feels like there are so many tasks at hand that must be completed soon. So, you’re sitting in a coffee shop, head on the verge of explosion, chest feeling compressed, muscles tight, all while realizing that you have so much shit to do.

Suddenly, a child starts screaming. The room becomes filled with people who are speaking way too loud. The person next to you is coughing every 30 seconds, and isn’t covering their mouth. So. Much. Noise.

You begin to wonder if something is wrong with you. You are so sensitive to these noises and things happening around you. You let it get under your skin and bother you until you finally decide to get up and leave out of discomfort.

This is my anxiety on a bad day. Every thing happening around me that is disturbing my peace becomes unbearable and vexatious. I’m aware that I bring it upon myself, but it’s such a complex concept to get myself to understand and control.

I practice my breathing, reading, writing, and other activities that help ease my mind. However, I feel as if those hobbies only leave me content for a limited amount of time. My mind is always in conflict with time. My mind is overwhelmed. My mind is tired.

These bad days are far and few apart, but addressing them and accepting them when they occur is all part of the plan that is my life. I push myself through these bad days, no matter how much I wish to give up. If I can manage these emotions, headaches, stress, anxiety….So can you. You just need to take it slow.

I’m speaking to myself and others when I say this…You can do it.

Gut Health; Your Second Brain

Gut Health; Your Second Brain

As I grow older, the more I notice the correlation between my physical state and my mental state. I believe it is something that most people do not think about at all, which is totally understandable since their passions and awareness does not lay within the health and wellness category. However, the interest in gut health has grown rapidly over the years, as people are starting to realize that their gut has a direct effect on ones mental health. Anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and more can be linked to gastrointestinal disorders.

Do you find yourself becoming irritable, anxious, or groggy at times? You may want to be paying attention to your tummy! It tells you more than you know about your well-being. I could digress on the technical terms and how the brain is connected to the gut, but I will keep it short and sweet; basically, the gut and brain are connected through the central and enteric nervous systems, which work together to create a cognitive and emotional function that links with peripheral intestine functions. Your body has millions of neurons lining the gut wall, which are essentially telling your brain what your gut is feeling subconsciously.

Many of us are familiar with serotonin, or the “happy” neurotransmitter. Serotonin helps you feel good mentally, but it also has a huge role in your gastrointestinal motility. More than 90% of serotonin in the body is actually found in the gut. Happy tummy = happy thoughts.

I have struggled with gut health and gastrointestinal issues for years, and yeah it’s kind of embarrassing and uncomfortable to address, but in the end, it is your body that you need to take care of. I had no idea that it was immensely effecting my mental health every day. I would become so insecure and upset when my tummy would become irritable or bloated, but can you blame me? It is so uncomfortable! Obviously it is going to alter my mood if I am having insane cramps and my jeans feel like they’re two sizes too small. I know I’m not the only one who has felt that way, especially being a woman and having to deal with monthly gifts (lol).

Despite my challenges with my gut health, I have improved it over the years through proper nutrition, exercise, and consistent de-stressing exercises. I highly suggest doing your own research from credible sources as well, or even reaching out to a holistic doctor to see what options you can explore to improve your gut health.

Tips for Better Gut Health

1.) Find a good probiotic that also has essential prebiotics to help balance your gut flora.

2.) Consume fermented foods such as kimchi, kefir, or yogurt.

3.) Exercise often! Even going for a 15 minute walk after meals can help with digestion more than you’ll realize!

4.) Drink water like crazy baby. Aim for half your body weight in ounces per day.

5.) De-stress! Stretch, do yoga, get a sports massage, or get outdoors.

6.) Massage your tummy for a few minutes every night.

I hope this post gave you a little more information about gut health and how important it is! 🙂 What do you do to keep your gastrointestinal health in check? Leave a comment below to share your thoughts!

How To Be Your Own Motivation

How To Be Your Own Motivation

I’ll address the elephant in the room; I haven’t blogged in a while. It’s not that I didn’t want to write, I have just been carrying a heavy load of stress on my back for a few months now.

I know many of you can relate. Stress and depression seriously forces you to slowly slip away from yourself and what you’re passionate about. You may notice a change in how you sleep, eat, behave, and even your appearance. You want to be in a untroubled place, but no matter how hard you try, you still seem to be stagnant in your being.

I know myself well enough to watch out for the things that I do when I am extremely stressed. Some of them are things I cannot control, such as losing my menstrual cycle. Some of them are things I can control, such as eating two pints of ice cream out of complete emotional turmoil. (Yes, it has happened before). All of this may sound sad, but it’s real. I know I’m not alone in this. Im not giving up, I’m just working through these challenges.

I wake up every day and question my purpose, my passion, and my morals. I know this is normal, and I know that my questioning is coming from a place of fear, uncertainty, and lack of confidence. Well, it’s time to knock that shit off. I’m sick of it. I want the best for myself. How am I going to find my motivation again? What steps can I take to feel whole again? I may need some buddies to help keep me accountable. Feel free to write down your own steps for how to better yourself. I like to do this every now and then when I’m feeling completely lost in my journey.

Steps to contentment:

-Start writing at least once a week.

-Get a planner and write each week out every Sunday evening.

-Clean/organize my house at least once a week.

-Read a chapter of a book daily.

-Focus on quality time with friends and family.

-Go for a walk after dinner.

-Get a big ass water bottle and always carry it with me so that I drink at least half my body weight in ounces per day.

-Get as prepared as possible for school in the fall.

That was kind of a lot more than I was expecting, but I think that was needed. It really puts it into perspective when you write it all down and realize what you are missing from your life.

Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I’m gonna make the rest of this year my b*tch. I know I can do this. I fall off my horse every now and then, but my dad always taught me to get back on and handle the horse. That’s exactly what I’m gonna do with life.

Thanks for reading, I hope this post serves you in some way. I hope it’s a great day for you.

6 Tips to Help Build Lean Muscle

6 Tips to Help Build Lean Muscle

I get many messages over Instagram and text of people (mainly women) asking how to build lean muscle mass and become more toned, confident, and healthy! I’ve made a list in my notes of the things I’ve incorporated into my life that has helped me increase my lean muscle mass over the years. This is a fun topic for me because I love nerding out and sharing my personal experiences with others to hopefully help them reach their goals. It’s awesome because these are simple tips that anyone can use to see the results they want. What it really comes down to is time and persistence. Results won’t appear over night, but if you stay motivated, you’ll see changes before you know it!

I would also like to mention that I am not qualified to give any nutritional information, but I am here to share what has worked for me! If you are struggling with the nutrition side of things, I highly recommend seeing a Dietician or Nutritionist. I can tell you one thing though, we have the power of information at our finger tips and you can seriously Google anything you would ever want to know. If you want to know more about nutrition, you can look up the nutritional requirements for an adult who is trying to maintain lean muscle. Please be careful though, your health is not something to take lightly. You must make sure the sources you are obtaining information from are credible, reliable sources. Once you have an idea of what a healthy diet is, and how it can benefit you, it’s smooth sailing from there.

NOW….. into the nitty gritty.

  1. EAT A CLEAN, WELL-ROUNDED DIET. You will be amazed by how little changes in your diet can make a huge difference in your appearance. I remember when I was committed to a vegan diet, and I thought I was filling my body with healthy options just because they were dairy/meat/egg free. That is not the case, because I didn’t realize how much processed food I was consuming. I was also ingesting large amounts of soy every day, which wasn’t helping me achieve my goals in the long run. Now, I’m not bagging on vegans by any means, I’m just saying I wasn’t doing it correctly. This directed me toward eating more whole foods, such as roasted vegetables, chicken, turkey, eggs, fruits, rice, and other unprocessed foods. This change not only made me feel better, but it also has helped me increase my desired amount of muscle mass and now I look healthier than ever.
  2. GET ON AN EXERCISE ROUTINE. I made the mistake for the longest time of going into the gym every day without a plan. No specific targeted area I wanted to work on, no exercises planned, no specific goals in mind either. I just wanted to stay in shape, like I’m sure many of you do as well. I was cheating myself though. I was not putting in the mental work when it comes to exercising. Once I got a coach, I started to mentally push myself to feel the movements of my workouts. The mind-muscle connection is key. Its better to focus on the movements vs. the amount of weight you can move. Instead of hammering out some bicep curls as fast as I could, I actually focus on feeling the contraction of my muscles so that I know it is benefitting me. My coach gives me “phases” of my weekly workouts, which shows me exactly what I am training Monday-Friday, including cardio time, and supplements. (If you’re seeking an online coach, hit up Shaun Standridge, instagram: wycked_shaun)
  3. DRINK TONS OF WATER. You guys know this! Water is essential for living. We all have those days where we totally do not keep track of how much water we drink, which most likely is less than we are supposed to. I try to drink at least half my body weight in ounces of water per day. For example, if you weight 140lbs, try to drink about 70 ounces of water a day. If you are’t a huge fan of drinking water, try adding BCAAs or crystal light to help you enjoy your fluids. Your water intake has a huge role in digestion, skin appearance, energy levels, and mood. If you want to feel your best, keep on drinking!

4. LIMIT YOUR CAFFEIN INTAKE. I am so guilty of consuming 500mg of caffein per day, and I’ve done it countless times. Granted, I do work for a coffee company where the supply is endless. The morning coffee, the mid-work energy drink, the pre-workout…All day, every day. I was an addict for sure. However, I’ve changed my ways, and so can you! I’ve noticed that the more caffeinated drinks I have during the day, the less energy I have or I don’t even feel a difference in my energy levels at all. Sometimes I crash hard and don’t want to do anything for the rest of the day. You also have to consider the calories that are in your energy drinks and coffee. That alone could be your source of carbs for the day, which will not help you increase your lean muscle mass. Ever since I reduced my caffein intake to about 150mg/day, I’ve noticed myself feeling a lot more energized and more lean (from cutting out the milk in my coffee) and replacing it with water. However, I do enjoy my ultra sunrise monsters occasionally, and those are usually my source of caffein for the day. So try swapping out the regular coffee for decaf, drink more water, or find a less caffeinated version of your favorite drinks!

5. INCREASE NON-EXERCISE ACTIVITY THERMOGENESIS (NEAT). Yes, I know that is a big jumble of words. Basically, NEAT is the time and energy spent that is not eating, sleeping, or working out. It is the physical activity you partake in during your daily business. For example, instead of taking the elevator, take the stairs. If you have a desk job and you find yourself sitting most of the day, get up and walk around the office every hour or so. There are plenty of ways to increase your NEAT, and in return you may notice some positive changes!

6. WORK YOUR ASS OFF. Plain and simple. Do the work, and you will be rewarded. It is almost like a formula, and if you follow all of these tips and work with intention, your desired outcome will show. Sometimes you have to wake up at 4am for the gym, or stay up late meal prepping on the weekends, or even cry on the stair master (guilty) BUT you will be proud. Accomplishing something you put your mind to will give you more confidence than you can imagine. You just gotta work your ass off.

Again, these are all things I incorporate in my daily life and it may work for some of you, and some of you it may not help you at all! Regardless of the outcome, I hope you enjoyed reading. I’m trying to be more transparent with my posts, so if there is anything you readers would like to know about me or a subject along the lines of mental health or fitness, don’t be afraid to drop a comment or shoot an e-mail. 🙂

Listen to Your Body

Listen to Your Body

Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel. 

– Eleanor Brownn

I am guilty. I use to over work myself to the point of exhaustion and daily mental break downs. I thought I was successful because of my productivity, but I can see now that I was completely wrong. 

I was corrupting my mind, body, and spirit. I see productivity as a wonderful trait to have, however, one must know their limits. It is not worth the self harm that comes with ignoring your bodies natural responses to stress. You can be the hardest worker in the room, but if you are mentally drained, are you really winning? Are you genuinely happy with yourself and your performance? 

Now, I’m not saying that you should be lazy, unproductive, and selfish all the time if you’re feeling over-worked, but to find the balance between working hard and giving yourself a break to replenish your creativity and energy. 

Some people may disagree, but I think it’s totally okay to call out of work if you need a mental health day. It’s okay to say no to hanging out with friends if you’re tired, and it’s absolutely fine to spend some time with yourself. You are not weak for feeling this way, and you should not feel bad either. You are self aware. You are doing the right thing for yourself. 

Listening to your body is more than just realizing that you want a pint of ice cream instead of going to the gym. Maybe you’re listening to your aching muscles, pounding headache, or irritated stomach. You could also be listening to your emotional feelings, such as sadness, doubt, or worry. 

Your body is always sending you messages. Honestly, being aware of how your body reacts to pressure is extremely important and will help you figure out what you can do more or less of. For example, when I begin to feel stressed out for some reason, (working a lot, studying, relationships) I get MEGA headaches. I could go to sleep with a headache, and wake up with one too. It sticks with me until I do something to relieve my stresses. 

It’s so easy to “go relax, and do something that makes you happy”, but I feel like so many people just end up laying in bed and scrolling through their phone. Yes, that could be relaxing, but it’s definitely not mentally stimulating. 

I’ll share some ways that you can start tuning in to your body.

  1. Go for a walk.  Plug in your headphones, listen to some calming music, and actually look at your surroundings.
  2. Eat mindfully. Eat food that will nourish your body and energy levels, rather than make you feel like a slug. Are you physically hungry or are you hungry because you’re bored? It’s important to be aware of how your body distinguishes the two feelings.
  3. Trust your intuition. Sometimes trusting your heart over your brain is exactly what you didn’t think you needed.
  4. Ask yourself how you’re feeling.  By doing this, you can address your needs. Stop, breathe, listen, decide, and act. 
  5. Start a self care regime. Get a face mask and bath bomb from Target, play your favorite video game, meditate, do yoga, write, whatever relaxes or pleases YOU. 

I hope this post has helped you become more in-tune with your body & mind. I wish only the best for each of you who have read this. Happy Thursday! 

Anxiety, my Dear Friend.

Anxiety, my Dear Friend.

Hello, anxiety. It’s nice of you to show up at the most inconvenient time, again. You make my chest swell, my head pound, and my whole body feel uncomfortable. I know you don’t mean to make me feel that way, but you always leave me feeling defeated. I’m not quite sure how you became such a big part of my life, but all I know is that I don’t want you around anymore. I never wanted you around. You’re good at making other’s feel lonely, worthless, and miserable…including me. You make the smallest issues seem so large, and the largest issues seem so unimportant. It’s confusing. You’re confusing.

Loud noises are unbearable, big crowds are frightening, and silence is beautiful. Why do you make me feel this way? Why are you part of me? I don’t understand. I guess I’ll just take my medication at the same time every day so you don’t ruin my mood. 

I have lived with you for a while now, and I’m starting to get used to how you become triggered. I know that I can’t sleep in past 7am, be unprepared for work, or leave the volume level on an odd number without you coming out to play. Well, truth is, I’ve accepted you. I don’t understand you, but I am learning to live with how you work. I guess I would consider that self love.

For those of you who don’t struggle with anxiety, this is what is feels like. Every day is a challenge. Please just love the ones around you who are emotionally aware enough to share their mental health status with you. Patience is key, and asking them questions about it is okay, as long as you respect their feelings and are calm when approaching the subject. Please be gentle. That is all we want.

I’m not trying to throw myself a pity party either. I’m just trying to help others understand that they are not alone in this. Understanding that this is worth accepting, because if you don’t, you will spiral down, down, down, until you feel so empty inside that you will shut everyone out, including your happiness. This is the game of life, and accepting your flaws is how you are gonna win. Use your flaws to help others, to motivate, inspire, whatever you feel you can do so that other people can feel worthy of living another day. That is what I’m trying to do. What are you struggling with right now? How can you try to improve the situation? 

Feel free to leave your thoughts, opinions, and experiences in the comments, or email me. Breathe, relax, and take care of yourselves this weekend. 

10 Things I am Grateful for

10 Things I am Grateful for

I’m aware that Thanksgiving has passed, but this time of year has my mind constantly searching for gratefulness. This time of year can be difficult for many, considering that the weather is getting colder, holidays are passing, and the new year is on it’s way. That is so much change within a few short months. Whether you struggle with holidays due to loss of loved ones, seasonal depression, or just feeling lonely, it is essential to ponder about the gifts life has given you. Now, I’m not just talking about the Xbox that your mom gave you or the flowers that your boyfriend surprised you with, I’ talking about what YOU are grateful for in your mental health. Allow me to exemplify, these are the ten things that I am grateful for in my mental health:

1.) Finding inspiration in the smallest acts of kindness.

2.) Thinking so maturely at such a young age.

3.) Motivating myself when I’m feeling down or lonely.

4.) Knowing that I am the only me in the world, I am entirely unique and proud of it.

5.) Feeling content about sharing my own struggles with people who share similar hardships.

6.) Having the ability to love people, even if they have hurt my feelings.

7.) Feeling so tranquil when listening to indie folk music.

8.) Growing away from my anxiety and making new relationships because of the fact.

9.) The ability to be so in-tune with empathy.

10.) Finding the smallest bit of positivity in a rough day.

It feels good. Addressing the things that make you proud of yourself can be such a beneficial exercise if you are trying to improve your self-esteem and mental health. I’m curious as to what you are grateful for. I’d love to hear from anyone who is willing to share. Feel free to post in the comments below! Happy Tuesday!
