How You Know the Universe is Trying to Tell You Something

Every day in Yoga Sculpt, before you start, the teacher asks you to set an intention.

This morning, I closed my eyes and said “letting  go.”

…of every person, every feeling, everything that’s not serving me anymore.

Then, the teacher sometimes chimes in and offers her personal intention with the class. Not a second later she says: Continue reading “How You Know the Universe is Trying to Tell You Something”

Signs you may be gluten intolerant

Let’s put it plain and simple…

Lately I’ve felt like straight dog shit. I haven’t slept a full night in months. I am fatigued beyond belief. My mood goes from high to low in the blink of an eye. Focus and mental clarity is nonexistent. Itchy is an understatement when it comes to my skin. Despite consistent efforts to lose weight, my body rejects it. And my anxiety (that I always have in some shape or form) is at an all-time high. Continue reading “Signs you may be gluten intolerant”

Confusion Sucks

Words by the beautiful Kylie McBeath of Being Is Beautiful. Too good not to share with you lovelies…

Make choices from love, not restriction

Still on my Lent kick, so bear with me. And, if I think about it, I probably will be for the next 39 days 😉

If you recall, I wrote a blog on 19 things you should consider giving up for Lent. If you haven’t read it, obvi you should. They’re not your typical chocolate & alcohol sacrifices either.

Well, as we know, I vowed to pick one from this list (giving up feelings of unworthiness) & practice it religiously day and night for 40 days. I, along with many gals, struggle with this. Even if we look happy, pretty, confident & like we have it all, sometimes we really don’t know what’s going on inside. I’ve had a lifelong battle with an eating disorder and probably will always struggle with this to a certain degree. But, I have committed myself for the Lent duration to make this my main priority — give myself a little TLC, if you will.

But, I also wanted to give up something that was tangible. If you’re competitive like me, you want everything you do to be measurable. Continue reading “Make choices from love, not restriction”

A New Journey: #WhyIYoga

So, when I say I’m a yogi in training, that would probably be an understatement. I’m still figuring out the moves with the right technique with hardly any strength to actually hold me up (luckily my gymnast & cheer background helps a little). BUT, I could care less. There are only a few things that come around in your lifetime that really set your soul on fire and motivate you to want to be better every day. Continue reading “A New Journey: #WhyIYoga”
