YogA Bound

Dear Yoga I’m A Fan,

For the longest time I have always wanted to do yoga. I suppose I was my own greatest enemy in this. Every time I would think about starting up again, I would tell myself little untruths. They would go a little something like the kids will never let you do it, when would you have the time, you should probably learn meditation first…..

So many times this has stopped me from doing what I want to do. I suffer from anxiety and so yoga is an outlet for me and another way for me to express myself through movement.

What Now?

Now I have given this much thought and the time is now. I mean what am I waiting for exactly? I’m just waisting time instead of bettering myself and my health.

Reality Check

As I am sitting here getting my thoughts together and anxiously waiting for the app to download. At this point I don’t know what to expect and so I just wait. By the way for those of you who are waiting for the app I am definately sharing. Yea it’s that good, it’s called Do You.

Inspire Yourself

I am super excited to start this. I know that it may be hard at first but I am my own worst enemy and best motivator. As long as I keep pushing forward and doing hat matters to me as well I can accomplish it all.

I put my plan into motions and I started reaching out to some of the moms. You can always find yoga moms on instagram. Inspiring other moms that you can be fit, calm, motivated, and mom. This one profile in particular that I follow is awesome and I love her good vibes. You can check her out @withlovemarisaa. I asked her abou it and she directed me to this app that she used when she started out. She was super nice and willing to help even though she didn’t know me from a can of peas.

This app even goes as far as letting you set up your own goals. As you can see I am simply just starting but I have chosen to do the beginners program. Follow the teachers as they provide you the guidance that you need. After completing this program I am going to venture onto another challenge.

Loc’n it Up

Sweet Embrace

For as long as I can remember I have always had a love for hair. Well mine that is. I only had one rule, no one plays in my hair but me. This prevented the inevitable part and avoids confrontation. If anything was to ever happen it would be my fault, and mine alone.

How old

Can you say that with time coming and going I grew out of this. I am beyond over this My Hair and Me feud.I have tried so many different things and now I simply want to be as comfortable as possible. Raising 3 girls can be more time consuming than most. When it came to morning routines, this became a problem. For me to get all my girls together, hair done would take more than an 2 hours. To me that’s just craziness but hey moms like me go through this A Lot.

See it?

So I started thinking what would be easy for me to maintain, manage, style, color, all the above. Locs of course now just wait I didn’t just come up with this. This took a great deal of time, and this is not my first rodeo with dreads might I add. About a year ago I started my locs only to combed them out. Don’t worry it was for good reason, my daughter was being bullied because of her afro. I combed my hair out too now we are twins my love.

No matter there Texture, Length, or Color of your hair, you are Beautiful Inside and Out

Regrets are not for me

If you asked me if I would do it again I would say yes each time, who cares how many times you have to start over. Now here I am again I have shaved all my hair off and grew it back to start my natural loc journey. So here goes nothing the only part that I am really going to hate would be the wiggly worms part, that’s until they grow that is. Going into this Yes I was really scared, because I was going to get them professionally done but then I thought why? I can save money do them myself and learn how to do starter loc’s myself. This doesn’t always pan out because styles like these are easier done on you than other people. Now that I have done them on myself I actually find it very easier and I will be able to keep retwisting my own hair.

One Of Those Days

I’m having one of those days where I just want to go go go. Literally I feel like I’m losing my mind. My 10M old is sick and constantly cries all though when she first became sock she didnt cry as much.

Now I feel like every other hour on the hour she’s crying. In some cases there is nothing you can do. This is one of them after you do everything that you could possibly do. After giving your child a remedy you have to literally wait it out and make sure that they are okay.

The anticipation of waiting does not take that long. I think it’s just all in your head. I have always hated sick days because then I feel helpless as if I am not able to help my child. In reality I am helping her by staying by her side until them remedy kicks in which ever solution you may have chosen.
