Sleep to Beauty 💤

Sleeping is an essential part of recovery. Your body needs rest! Let me tell you….. If you ignore it, it will catch up to you. I had gone weeks without sleep and then my body started to shut down.

Keep Moving….

Progression is the slowest process ever! It can take months and even years for us to get where we want to be. Often, we tend to beat ourselves up when we fall off the “bandwagon”.

Save a life… Yours 🏥

Seeking help may seem as if it were a cowardly act. Is it? Many may feel embarrassed or too prideful to admit when they simply need the help. Stop. It is not cowardly, but humble. Stop being prideful, being the know it all. Stop looking down on those who do seek help, and commend themContinue reading “Save a life… Yours 🏥”

Touching base with your emotions😀😌😕😠😭😙

“If you allow yourself to be bored, even for an hour –or less- and don’t fight it, the feelings of boredom will be replaced with feelings of peace.” (Carlson, pg. 49) How beautifully put! We are constantly trying to find things to do, whether to avoid being still or avoid dealing with emotions. What’s soContinue reading “Touching base with your emotions😀😌😕😠😭😙”

ADF, the fitness ADD ☠

Ok, before I finish my other post… I want to address adrenal glands. I have previously talked about how cortisol hinders weight loss. Sadly, so does adrenal fatigue.
