HARD

If it were easy everyone would be doing it. But it’s hard. I also LOVE FOOD (especially sweets) I tend to eat bad😫 but I’m trying to get better.(Baby steps) I am trying to learn about macros & how my body reacts to certain foods . I really need to figure out how to speed up my metabolism . So I’m working from home , homeschooling, raising 2 kids, cleaning my home, grocery shopping, playing outside with the kids, getting enough sleep, skin care rituals, praying, reading, hobbies, laundry, cooking, taking care of my hubby, self-care, etc. Sometimes it’s very hard to find the time & energy to get a workout in. Juggling everything can get complicated when your a working mom but it can be done. If anyone has any advice feel free to let me know 🙂 Moms need all the support they can get! Ain’t no hood like motherhood! If you are also on a fitness journey lets connect 🙂

 P.S. Just wanted you to know that you are also capable of anything and I love motivating women throughout their journey. Mom’s are worth it and I want to prove that to you. If you are finding it difficult (like me) to stay motivated, I just want you to know that YOU are worth it! And you deserve to feel good, look good, and be healthy.

Keep Pushing XOXO

I found this resistance band online that has been useful. I love fitness gadgets 😎

LIGHTSTIM

You can buy red light therapy from https://www.amazon.com/ . I chose LightStim because I’m good friends with the account executive in my area. With my license I also get a sweet discount. I love what it does for my skin. I also love how I get quick results in my client’s skin by using this magic wand on them. Bottom line is that it works no b/s. Now everyone’s skin is different but for me & my skin it has taken away brown spots that I thought I was going to have forever. If I would have known about this in my 20’s I would have started this in my 20’s. But I didn’t so I am just starting now at 35. I wish someone would have told me. Anyway this is a legit investment, it won’t let you down. It’s also super relaxing like (makes you want to fall asleep relaxing ). I usually do it at night to put me in the mood to sleep. (That’s a whole other blog post) Sleep & I don’t get along at times.

Okay so here’s what it does ( I love knowing how things work , I’m kinda boring but I am a real BIG nerd at heart) :

The wavelengths of light energy can treat your fine lines and wrinkles

🤯 light therapy was originally used by NASA for wound healing in space ( by the way I used it on a burn that I got while cooking & I literally have no scar because of this tool)

 It increases collagen and elastin production, reduces inflammation, speeds healing, increases circulation, destroys acne bacteria etc.

The list goes on & on people. Results may vary because everyone has different DNA 🙂 Just wanted to share what I learned.

Scalp Massage

I love Amazon

So if you want to get your scalp healthier you need to massage it. Just like a tree our hair has roots and they need to be stimulated to grow. Getting a scalp massager is a great investment and it can be relaxing as well. I love massaging my scalp while watching tv or reading. I can honestly say that I’ve seen a difference in my hair since I’ve started to massage it every other day. If you want to take it up a notch you can also add in an essential oil while you massage. I like to you use https://www.amazon.com/PURA-DOR-Certified-Anti-Aging-Moisturizer/dp/B004Z209HS/ref=sr_1_43?crid=2UEP5ELUKIJQR&keywords=scalp+essential+oil&qid=1583047876&sprefix=scalp+ess%2Caps%2C218&sr=8-43 All it takes is 5-01 minutes a day and you can always just use your fingertips. I dream all day about having long, healthy and natural hair ( also non-gray) 🙂 I have high hopes that massaging my scalp can help me get there.

Stay Hydrated 

Today I added rasberries to my water 🙌🏽  I love this water bottle because I can add any type of fruit & it holds 32 ounces of water . Sometimes plain old water gets a little boring 😲  I wanna know what you add to your water ? Let me know !  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KREN362?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00
