Day 18 of Spring Clean Challenge!

Day 18

 

Today, I officially told Facebook that we are moving to Austin, Texas.  So once it’s on Facebook, it’s officially, official!!!  It’s so bittersweet because we LOVE Los Angeles and of course, all our family and friends.  It really made me grateful for the amazing people God has put in our lives over the years.  Erik and I have lived here forever.  I moved here when I was seven from the Philippines and Erik moved to LA from Boston when he was two.  You never know where life will take you.  It’s so important not to take people or time for granted.  LA will always be home to us but we are looking forward to our new adventure!
Thank you for being such great friends to us and our family.

 

 

1.  Friday- Stretch, Cardio and CORE!!!

I love planks!  We do variations of planks in my classes.  Please click here and ‘like’ us:)))
Time your planks and let us know how long you can stay up!!!

 

 

2.  Food- Super food of the Day! -AVOCADOS!!!

 

 

 

3. Mantra for the day:  Being Vulnerable is not a Weakness.

To be vulnerable is to be exposed.  To be stripped to our core is a humbling experience because we must deal with what’s left.  Food can be a great mask.  Extra weight or being underweight takes the focus off of what’s really going on inside.  When we start to deal and peel off layers then we have to come face to face with who we really are.  Take a moment to embrace that person.  Your authentic, vulnerable, amazing self is dying to come out.  Give her a chance to prove to you that she is strong and capable of dealing with what life has to offer.  You are stronger than you think you are.  Openness and honesty gives others the courage to do the same.  Share your heart and share your strength!!!

 

 

 

Have a beautiful day! I love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)

Day 18 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 18!

After talking to some of you guys, it seems like we have hit a bump in our journey.  Some of us, myself included have slipped up and have enjoyed too many cheat days:)  It’s OK.  Don’t beat yourself up.  It’s time to shake it off and move forward.  The key is not to let the bad days turn into weeks, months and eventually years!  Everyday is a new day:))))

1) Thursday Yoga/Pilates/Stretch
After hitting it hard this week, take some time to stretch your body and give it some TLC:)  Try these stretches and poses….

 

2) Food- Super food of the day: Quinoa

3) Mantra for the Day- Turn Intentions into ACTIONS!
If I did everything I THOUGHT about doing, I would be soooooo productive;) LOL!  Our intentions are so important but the proof is in the follow through.  Have integrity and do what you say you’re going to do.  If you say to yourself, “I will work out in the morning.”  Then do it!  Keep your word.  It’s tough and sometimes we want to give in to our emotions.  Stay strong.  Success comes to those who are willing to do the work!

 

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:))) XOXO!!!
