Hot Yoga Tips

Hey guys! I’m currently doing hot yoga and its the BEST thing E V E R! I have problems with my spine and I struggle to fall asleep at night because my back hurts so much. By the second class, I could already notice a great difference in my back. I could sleep soooo much better. Yoga is such a great experience, and the aftermath is amazing. It has many benefits, but I wont get into that right now. What I would like to share with you today is how to be prepared for class. I would like to add one thing that I had forgotten and its so important. BRING A WATER BOTTLE TO CLASS.

 

I loved this quote!

I hope you guys try yoga if you haven’t already. It’s truly amazing!

10 Fat burning foods !

I know everyone, like me, can have a pretty hard time figuring out what to eat and what not to eat when starting a healthy lifestyle. Below I typed 10 foods you can eat that are part of a healthy diet and also help you stay in shape! YAY! When I started on my healthy lifestyle, fitfam journey, I did SOOO much research on foods, recipes, workouts, right foods, what not to eat, and all that good stuff. There was so much information, I just got overwhelmed by it all. There is nothing I want more than to help you guys in making the right choices when it comes to living the healthy lifestyle you want. That being said, everyone is different and not everyone can eat the same foods as everyone else and expect the same results. Maybe you can’t even eat the foods because you have a sensitivity or are allergic to it. Whatever the case may be, always listen to your body and/or speak to your doctor to find a good meal plan that works for you.

10 Fat Burning Foods

  1. Green Tea
  2. Berries
  3. Almonds
  4. Oatmeal
  5. Egg Whites
  6. Green Veggies
  7. Whole Grains
  8. Peanut Butter
  9. Lentils
  10. WATER (it may not be a food but this is so unbelievably important)!

Detox! You won’t regret it

You may or may not be familiar with cleanses or how the body detoxifies itself. If you are familiar with this subject, that’s great! All I want is for you guys to be aware of everything health. If you are not familiar, then I hope you enjoy learning and reading about your body and how to stay healthy.

Lets help our bodies stay on top of it’s game

Before talking about the complete body cleanse, know that the body actually detoxifies itself.

How does the body detoxify itself?

What is a detox? To clear the body of toxins.

What are toxins? Toxins cause harm to our bodies and they can be anywhere; in the water we drink, in the food we eat, and it can also be in the air we breathe. They can be: highly processed foods and artificial ingredients, pollution in our air and water, pesticides, fertilizers, hormones used in our foods and more. 

  • SKIN let out toxins by sweating.
  • LIVER detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs.
  • LUNGS helps the body get rid of CO2 gas when we breathe out.
  • LARGE INTESTINE transmits the useless waste material from the body.
  • KIDNEYS extract waste from blood and through urination.

Your body is always working on detoxifying itself. It’s our job to help our organs be at their full potential. This involves lifestyle changes, as well as committing to a detox plan for a while. (preferably organic)

4 Ways To Detox Your Body

1. Choose REAL FOOD

2. Drink ALOT of water

3. Exercise

4. Do a Complete Body Detox

These are not all the things you can do to help your body detox itself but its some.

The Complete Body Cleanse

Okay, so lately I’ve been feeling super weird in my stomach. I wanted to do a stomach cleanse but then I started thinking… I would so much rather do the whole deal! Your body goes through a lot without you even realizing it. Since I’ve never done a cleanse and I occasionally eat the “bad foods”, I wanted to give the whole body cleanse a try.

About this specific body cleanse

Lasts for 14 days

All capsules taken in morning and night with 8 ounces of water

Contains: 3 bottles

  1. Cleansing fiber blend.
  2. Non-stimulant laxative with herbal blend to utilize the natural water in your body to help flush toxins away.
  3. Milk Thistle Liver Cleanse to support liver function.

While doing this cleanse I have to drink a lot of water, eat a healthy diet and no intense exercise. (Only yoga)

I can’t wait to try this out and see how I feel! Has anyone ever done a total body cleanse ? I would like to know your experience and how it helped you. !

How to make a delicious acai bowl

I’ve been making this acai bowl for EVERYONE. My hubby asks for it so much and I make it almost every breakfast! It’s so easy to make and it’s seriously sooooo yummy!

Ingredients for bowl

  • Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Acai powder
  • Moringa powder
  • Honey 2 spoons
  • Coconut water
  • Sun potion powders

Toppings

  • Coconut flakes
  • Lara bar chocolate chip cookie dough
  • Wild friends pumpkin spice peanut butter
  • Banana
  • Strawberries
  • Berries

Acai bowls are literally my favorite go to meal. It’s so simple to do and it can be done in less then 5 minutes. First I put the frozen fruits then I add all the powders, honey, coconut water about half way through the ingredients (not the blender). Then I blend ! You guys don’t really need to add the sunpotions or the moringa powder. I add it because of its health benefits but it doesn’t make a difference in the taste. For toppings I usually put what you see in my picture but it all depends on what you like! Some fruits, granola, coconut flakes, whatever you want. Have fun with it ! And remember not to blend to much. You want to make it a smooth & creamy consistency. I hope you guys enjoy! I seriously LOVE this recipe!

How to make 2017 great! 


Focus on YOU! Work out more. Go to places you’ve never been before. Cut toxic people out of your life. Be good to your parents. Do something you’ve always wanted to do. Get OUT of bed earlier. Get a massage, (you’ll be surprised how much it helps). Spend less time watching tv. Complain less. Stress less. Don’t skip breakfast. Go for a run. Eat to nourish your body. Drink more water. Set goals you want to accomplish. Spend time with friends. Take a lot of pictures. Take a lot of videos. Do something you’re scared to do. Get something you’ve always wanted. Smile more often. Laugh more often. Read at least 5 books. Feed your intellectual side. Nourish your soul. Sleep more. Don’t worry about what people say. Everyone lives their lives differently, there is no correct way to live your life. JUST BE HAPPY
