I enjoyed today’s practice because I felt like it focused on your back. My back has been hurting a little bit the past few days. This video allowed my back to stretch and decompress and savor the stretching. When working out, stretching is so important to your muscles and your body. It keeps it safe and your body will enjoy it.
Keep striving for your goals. Everything counts, that extra second, that extra push-up. I constantly remind myself that if I don’t finish a workout video 100% that, it’s alright. I’m a work in progress and so is the way I think. Today I was proud of myself because during the HIIT video I follow. I managed to do tricep dips and a few jump lunges. I haven’t been able to do that yet, and I thought it was awesome. Then during my Yoga video I realized that I’m on day 15. Half way to the 30 day challenge…It may be taking me more than 30 consecutive days but, again that’s okay. I felt more flexible and able to do more.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is. If you feel stuck, if you feel like you’re not making progress, keep going! Be positive, strive for your goal, strive to do a little more each time. Be safe and have a great start to the week lovelies! 💚

Summer is upon us and this first week of June I’ve been on the search for the perfect fruit cup. Fruit cups aren’t only healthy for you but they’re delicious and simple to make. It doesn’t take longer than 15 minutes, and you can add whatever you like! Here are three simple steps in making my fruit cup:
Pick whatever fruit you would like in your Summer Fruit Cup. Cut the watermelon and pineapple into strips and slice the rest of the fruit. Store the leftovers in the fridge to keep them cool and fresh.
Place the fruit strips along the inside of the cup. You can do this however you would like. Then take the diced up fruit, for my case the strawberries and pears and put them in the center.
The final step. Sprinkle Tajin throughout and add some Chamoy sauce to get that sweet yet savory flavor with a little kick. Grab a napkin and a fork. Find a comfy spot and relax!
This tasty treat is healthy and delicious. It’s almost like you could eat this every day for Summer! This is simple to make, can be made in less than 15 minutes and there’ll be leftovers for more! Have fun trying out something new. Enjoy this sweet treat and have a refreshing start to summer. Take a break from the Khaos 💚
Summer is really starting to feel like it’s here. Taking Rex on his walk, he tuckered out faster than I thought he would. That was okay with me though, I forgot to put sunscreen on and I felt my shoulders burning. After I got him some cool water and some air I decided to do another HIIT workout from Monday. I wanted to do it before the heat became unbearable.
Grabbed my water, and my Ipad and headed to the backyard. Its the only space where I have enough room and don’t feel like I’ll bring the house down with all the exercises. By now it’s a little after eleven o’clock and the heat is making itself known. I’m doing my thing, sweating, keeping up and then it was time for burpees. I have a love hate relationship with them. I did them to the best of my ability but then, I felt it. After a while you start to really know your body and when you push your limits I was doing just that. I heard the slight ringing in my ears, followed by everything becoming muffled. I felt myself getting a little dizzy and tunnel visioned. You guessed it, the heat was getting to me.
Thankfully, I’m able to recognize when my body has had enough. I stopped, let my heart rate slow down, drank my water and got inside to the cool air. After a few minutes, my body began to cool down and get back to where it needed to be. Did I finish the workout? No. That’s okay though. I was a little bummed out, but I would rather be safe than not.
Heat Exhaustion. The skin will be pale, clammy with excessive sweating. Stop the activity and cool down immediately.
Heat Stroke. Skin will be hot and dry, seek immediate medical help. This is very dangerous.
Be careful and stay safe working out in extreme temperatures. Make sure to have a source of hydration accessible. Wear comfortable clothing for you and your environment. Most of all, have fun! I hope my little excursion of the day helps with becoming aware of your body and in a hot environment 🙂 Have fun working out lovelies! 💚

After taking my pup Rex for his walk, I decided I wanted to do a HIIT workout before my Yoga. So I scrolled through YouTube trying to find something with enough intensity but still kind of low impact. I can’t jump into high intensity extreme yet because I still have to watch out for my stress-fracture in my tibia. Her video had low impact exercises to go with every exercise she showed. I absolutely loved that! It allowed me to do the full workout at my pace. Here’s to June and putting my best fitness foot forward!
What are some of your goals, wants and plans for June? Have fun and stay safe out there my lovelies! ❤️

Today I did Day 3 with “Yoga with Adriene.” This practice was focused on awakening your body and your soul. I enjoyed it today, my body needed that wake up. With school, stress and the rainy weather I’ve been sluggish. Having these little boosts of energy really feel like they help out. Try it out for yourself!
