Lately I have been STRESSED! and I hate it, I have been trying to BALANCE it all and its been nearly impossible…between a 5 am gym class, business meetings and the holidays I had a few I NEED TO QUIT LIFE moments. Luckily I have some amazing people that helped me through, and made me see that I am sometimes my own worst enemy, my work ethic can get the best of me, and I need to try to take it down a notch in area’s that don’t deserve that much mental energy, and increase in area’s that make me happy. I am also setting “business hours” for myself, so I am not working non stop, but the hours I am being compensated for. Question: If you work from home, part time/ full time, how do you balance not working 24 hours a day? Hence, trying this whole yoga thing in 2016…class #2 of the year…so far so good…

Not an ugly studio at all right…Makes you feel slightly relaxed already! I have a hard time in yoga with the whole “honor yourself” but I do like the teachers, it makes my mind calm, and it makes me breath. I have also been focusing on those greens and staying healthy! And when you have a smoothie buddy what is better!

What has been making you smile ear to ear lately?

Loving my job and life lately…

Also known as feeling better! But seriously look at these ladies, they show up morning after morning, when most people are in bed and make my job so fun, even when i’m sick, down, just not feeling myself, I walk into a class, see these people, and know I need to bring my A Game!

These ladies are the best! I teach Monday nights, and Tuesday mornings * yes I sleep, but not enough * but these amazing athletes seriously make my job so fun, they keep me on my toes, and make me want to try new things, and create new to me moves like this one!

Grab a weight, drop into a low squat, and steep out side to side alternating legs it burns! I gave my group last night three exercises, each lasting a min, back to back for three mins, and then they got a full 1 min break, we worked on our cardio endurance and had a blast!

We mixed up the second half of the class with jump ropes! Have you used a jump rope in awhile? If not grab one, so easy, and such an amazing workout! My Green juice love is still in full effect up in here, everyday people, making my $99 a good investment!

Speaking of good investments, do you guys commute to work with 5000 bags like I used to? We ll this year for christmas mister got me a backpack and I seriously love it! No more 5000 bags, and falling all over the place on the T. It’s not a million lbs on my back either! It’s amazing. My mom also got me these mitten/ gloves that you can also use your phone with and they are amazing and deff needed in this cold!

What was the best christmas gift? Gift to yourself, or gift you gave to someone. I never thought I would think backpacks were cool ha I guess I am a dork but I love mine! I have also been loving my new years goal of a new recipe a week, and I have been on a soup kick, so Corn Chowder it was last night!

The house might smell like bacon for awhile- opps! ha but the soup was so yummy! I used more potatoes then needed since I don’t eat fish so left that out. I know I am the worst eater/ and adult for no fish, but the sent I just can’t. Someday maybe, but for now I am fish free.

How is your week going?
