F L O W • I’ve always included yoga into my weekly fitness routine to help with my overall training. This week I started a 3 week yoga challenge in addition to my regular workout. I couldn’t be more happier that I started this!
Yoga can be a really important part of your training (especially in combination with weightlifting training) as it can be used as an additional way to increase endurance and strength, improve your posture and help you achieve balance and flexibility. It helps maximize your physical performance while helping with your mental balance.
I personally find it helps a lot with muscle recovery after I’ve finished up my weight training (especially when I’ve upped my weights).
If you’ve always pondered about trying yoga or incorporating it into your routine, it’s definitely something I’d suggest adding as a pre and/or post workout exercise. It really does help by making you flexible, calmer, balanced and more physically and mentally stable. 🧘♀️
Motivation Monday fitfam! 🤙🏼
Apart from being pasty white bc I wouldn’t wear summer clothes or be seen uncovered-I was UNHAPPY. Very unhappy. This era of my life was not me. Not at all. I was stuck, with no where to turn. It was the easy road to stay comfortable and eat to my hearts content. I honestly can say I don’t remember much about this part of my life. It was 10 years ago at 170 lbs AND my breaking point. Rock bottom.
6 years ago I started my journey. A life journey to health and loving myself. Not weight loss for seeking attention or to look “hot”, as some would think or say -but to better myself. To be ME. What I was meant for. A mission to better myself for my family, to have more energy AND to inspire others.
My life is happy now. I found my happy place. Raising kids was phenomenal, the best years of my life. Now it’s about me. Call it selfish, I don’t care what anyone thinks OR says about me.
Self love is the most powerful feeling in the fucking world. Learn and embrace it.
