I eat intuitively & consume little meat (poultry&seafood only), work out about 2-3 times a week w medium weight, & do some yoga at home most days. I am NOT hard on my body at all (...maybe once in a blue moon)...and while I love fitness, being HOLISTICALLY (mind, body, soul) healthy is a lifestyle, and working out is just a small part of that. I sincerely don't suggest letting aesthetics rule your life. If you take care of your nutrition & body & implement exercises into your workout that are conducive to your goals, aesthetics will come. But ✨✨obsessing over aesthetics in any way that's unrelated to health is UNHEALTHY✨✨ in my humble opinion and I don't promote it in any form. Enjoy the process of taking care of your vessel & make sure your internal dialogue is kind. I'm 5'9 and when I started working out & doing yoga I weighed 113 lbs. I didn't do any challenges, take supplements, push myself excessively, etc. I just stayed fairly consistent and if & when I fell off, I returned again. I was about 141 lbs 6 weeks ago and I'm about 135 lbs now. 🤷‍♀️Progress isn't linear. I've made sure to express love & appreciation to myself & my body every step of the way & that has truly helped me to stay health-focused. Don't be clouded by male-fantasy-driven-ideal-(often Eurocentric)-versions-of-beauty recycled by our media & don't be discouraged by utter BS passed off as legitimate/natural/real/healthy on social media platforms. Half of these fitness icons are 1/2 muscle and 1/2 surgical or cosmetic enhancement. Then their photos are often enhanced themselves. That doesn't matter so much until it's passed off as natural and sold to gullible individuals wanting to better themselves for $___. Anyway really just be kind to yourself as you're on your journey so that fitness can be implemented into your life in an enjoyable, healthy and sustainable way😊 The physical growth & evolution will definitely come & continue so long as it is. What a joy it should be to take care of our body - our home!🙏🌌

✨Weighted stretches✨and poses have helped me to increase my flexibility and range of motion over the years. It's not rare for me to grab a kettlebell or dumbbell to help deepen my pose✨It needs to be noted here that I'm self-taught & learned through personal trial & error!...so whatever you do, do it with care, caution & mindfulness😌

Contrary to popular opinion, I'm not nice; I'm kind. There's a difference🌷

Just got into St. Louis for a fam reunion in IL. First thing my mom and I have to do after landing...find the nearest park & decompress for a sec lol🌿😌 I once heard that your true age shows in the bend or the stiffness of your back...& that really resonated w me, especially bc my back has always been so much more closed than any other part of my body. But since being more consistent w my back opening the last few months, I've begun to actually ENJOY backbends! Love them sometimes even! What?! For the longest they were my biggest nemesis and they made my body want to cry😭 I know other yogis can relate lmao...But the game has forever changed!!! lol #backbendsgivinglife shall be my new hashtag as I celebrate 😂😂😍feel free to celebrate your backbends w me🤗😘 Pretty tired after no sleep + this flight but feeling all the good vibes today, I hope you guys are too💓

...The great mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; you ought not to be thinking of whether it ends in victory or defeat. Let nature take its course, and your tools will strike at the right moment 🌱
