Listen up Ladies…
In order to “tone up” you need to Build muscle. 💪
If you’re wanting to “slim down” you are going to want to strength train. 💕
In order to build muscle you need to eat enough to FUEL your workouts 🍓
The only way you will get bulky is from eating more calories than your body needs. 🍪
Lifting weights… even heavy ones will not make you bulky.
That is all 👌
🌝 Nighttime Routine 🌝
SLEEP. One of the most important keys to BEST health and one of the hardest things to tackle.
One thing I know all too well is a stressed, anxious mind, makes for a TERRIBLE night’s sleep. So I’m always willing to try ANYTHING to sleep better.
Nighttime rituals are so important to relax the mind and end the day on a peaceful note.
Here of some of my favorite tips for a restful night of sleep.
1. Magnesium at night (I take Calm Magnesium with Melatonin)
2. Write in a gratitude journal (3 things you’re grateful for)
3. Bedtime Yoga (try out these simple holds for 5-10 breaths for improved sleep)
Who’s going to try?! 💫

I didn’t know where to start.
I had no clue where I would end up.
But I knew I needed to change.
It wasn’t easy. It was filled with failures. But it was so very much worth the fight.
Cheers to gaining strength, creating your own happiness, and learning that time can be a very beautiful thing. 🍾 💕

When is the PERFECT time to start your health and fitness journey?
My REAL answer: Never.
The season of New Year’s Resolutions and starting on Monday is upon us… but one of the most important things I’ve learned is there will never be a best time to start a health and fitness journey.
*Life is always going to be busy.
*There’s always going to be an upcoming event.
*You’re never going to have a surplus of money to afford it.
*You’re never going to feel READY
So what if instead of waiting for Monday, or January 1st, or until you feel ready you started right now?! Made one small (or BIG) change to take a step to a healthier life. It doesn’t have to be a drastic change. Small changes daily when life is chaotic will still add up over time. In fact, it will add up to WAY more than if you keep WAITING for that perfect starting point. Are you in?
