IN THE MORNING: BODy POSiTive

HEllo all!! Happy Friday the 13th(spooky) and don’t step on a crack or you’ll break your mothers back 🙂

Okay only one corny joke per post I promise or I’ll try

But on to the topic of today which is body positivity

GUYS/GALS being body positive is such a big thing because its your confidence and it makes you who you are

Now I’m here to you whether your skinny, curvy, corky, short tall etc we are all some fire people

We can do anything we want and shouldn’t let our bodies be in the way of what we want to do

I used to body shame myself all the time and its true you are your own worst enemy/criticizers

But when you get passed that and see how much your worth then nothing matters and you don’t need anyone

I feel like because of social media and all these false photos, captions and people

Teenagers early 20s and females in particular feel the pressure to please certain people

I know this cause I do feel this pressure myself but I don’t let that affect me or make me think any different

So what I don’t have a boyfriend or I am not super skinny or I don’t have the longest hair

I still think I am a 10 and even though that might seem selfish for some, for me this is how I see myself and how everyone should see themselves

I saw this post that speaks to me in multiple levels because guys and people in general feel that bigger girls should just pick whatever guy they want because there are little options for us or because we might have low self esteem

But I am here to say curvy girls can get whatever guy they want and do not need anyone to tell them who they should and shouldn’t date,wear or be. And most of us aren’t even worry about that we just want a successful career and a happy healthy life!

So that was all a little rant but also something uplifting I hope you guys enjoy and have a great dia!

IN THE MORNING: Healthy Eating

NOW DO NOT get me wrong I like a little junk food every now and then especially when I am stressed with school

BUT, that does not mean you can’t have some healthy eating in there too and I know for many of us

It must be hard to juggle having a semi-perfect life while also trying to be completely sane but it is possible and

I am just here to tell you about my struggles and failures and still (failing) but mostly winning in the healthy eating war

I’ve always loved fruit but hated vegetable and I was never one to pick the healthiest food as a child

so most time junk food was my life and I was completely fine with that

UNTIL I started to gain a bunch of weight and felt myself being tired all the time and to add to that I started to have stomach pain and issues

and I just decided okay I need to eat healthier

BUT what did that mean? to everyone eating healthier means different things because not everyone eats the same and in a (hypothetical) meter people have different types of healthy eating habits

To me however, it meant that I would make smarter decision I would eat the apple instead of the chocolate bar because it was healthier

I would eat or share the smaller chocolate bar because its less calories while also satisfying my eating habits

I would buy more vegetables and fruits instead of snacks when going grocery shopping

And thats fine everyone goes at their own pace and who cares what other people think of your healthy eating

As long as you are doing realistic healthy choices

For me I knew cutting out all junk food was not realistic because eventually I would give in and eat it

BUT just moving toward healthier eating is a step and a big one so be proud wherever your at in the healthy living cause its great and exciting and it can also suck

but most times its great and you won’t regret it!

Slow and Steady wins the race ADIOSS!

Fruits Are Lifeeee

IN THE TEMPRANO: New Beginnings 

I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and that most times we can’t control what happens to us 

BUT we can control how we react to these things 

NOW I wanted to make this short but very informative because let’s be honest sometimes reading long article,blogs journals etc.. is a lot so bare with me 

This summer has taught me a lot about myself and although it’s not completely over yet I thought reflecting midway would be a good idea 

Now I’m not perfect and I make mistakes all the time but I always try to improve myself and make myself to be the best version of me 

And yes that sounds corny but it’s true and it’s also necessary 

I am trying to get back to the basics the parts that I really liked about myself that I’ve lost but I’m also evolving myself and reaching out when I can 

So I say all of this to let you guys know that it’s okay to feel down and to have off days 

It’s okay if you need outlets and extra help (having a therapist doesn’t mean your insane) and I think it’s great to ponder and reflect on the things you need to improve in yourself

You can become new everyday. You can have a new beginning 

All you have to do is try to be the best you that you can be 

Now I challenge you to try something new tomorrow it could be anything and it could be small but just try it 

LIKE, COMMENT SHARE LAUGH CRY EAT whatever gets you through the day :))))) have a great one though

IN THE LATE LATE NIGHT: Darkest before the Dawn 

So my health has been pretty much Crap and I’ve been feeling pretty low most days but It’s fine cause I’ll get better

It is true what they say that you might have some pretty bad days but there would always be some good the key is to be optimistic, to understand the situation your in now, own it and figure out how to either fix it or work around it

And trust me when I say this is probably a big low for me this summer because everytime I think I’m getting better with my health something else happens

BUTTTTT a lot of good has come out of this and I’ll tell you some

First I realized that I need to eat better and have a healthier lifestyle if I want to enjoy my time here and I just need to be more aware of what I’m putting into my body

I realized that’s getting sick really sucks and not knowing what’s going on with you sucks even more

I realized that I need other outlets that can help me balance and keep me sane and one of those things is Headspace (App) it’s basically a meditation app and the guy that talks for the meditation; his voice is so soothing and after a session I promise you’ll feel zen

I also pray, I know for some that isn’t an option but an alternative could be mediation similar to meditation, prayer keeps me happy and optimistic while also giving me some peace

I also read because it calms me down while also teaching me something right now I read medical journals because they just interest me

I also realize that people really do work at their own pace and that right now my body is saying to take care of myself

I am more aware of myself and my surroundings and am taking the steps to better myself and I hope that this could inspire or comfort someone that is going through a similar situation

Comment, Like, Share would love to hear ya!! Have a great day and if your having a really bad day just remember that after darkness is light.

Also lmk if you guys want me to recommend any bible apps or medical journals apps :))))

IN THE MORNING: SKIN CAREE

So I have eczema since I was a baby and have had really dry hard to manage skin 

Apparently as you get older the eczema will start to go away and I am still waiting for that day 

Five realities of having extremely dry skin(and some tips/products on managing):

  1. Your friends ask you if you can go one day without moisturizing and the answer will always be no (always)
  2. You become very conscious of skin care and skin care products because this is basically your life now 
  3. Your friends come to you for advice on what lotions/body wash and perfumes to use because you’ve basically tried it all
  4. Everyone talks about how they love soaking in the water and taking long hot showers whereas your think about how to make your 5 minute shower 4 and if this will change anything 
  5. You start to experiment with different products because no doctor I do not want to smell like nothing for the rest of my life 
  6. BONUS: Your well aware of your body habits and when your skin becomes the driest (personally my skin reacts to drastic changes in weather like winter to summer)

Some tips for people like me who also have dry skin use a good moisturizing lotion I prefer Nivea,Vaseline or Aveeno 

Avoid long showers just don’t do it, you need all the moisture you have in your skin

Apply your lotion/medicine as soon as you get out the shower and pat dry!

IN THE AFTERNOON: WATER

Water is such a viable thing because it clears your skin, flushes the toxins out your body and just does all these miraculous things

Unfortunately some people do not prefer water or drink very little of it

Here are five ways to drink more water:

  1. STOP buying any juice or soda and instead only have water in your home and water when your out 
  2. If you like the fizziness of soda or want something that mimics soda drink seltzer water some even have flavor (my all time favorite is La Croix grapefruit, cran-raspberry and passionfruit)
  3. Try to drink bottle water instead (I’ve noticed I drink more water when its bottled) (favorites are evian or voss)
  4. Drink water when its freezing cold 
  5. Drink water with a straw

IN THE NIGHT:Maintenance

Realities of maintaining:

  1. Maintain a relationship with just about anyone when your caught up in work and school is impossible 
  2. Maintaining a balance life is like maintaining your stress when your under pressure 
  3. Maintaining people who are high maintenance is just too much and you rather not do it
  4. Maintaining your sanity while you have your family in one ear and everything else in the other is basically making you insane 
  5. Eventually you realize that you can’t maintain everything and instead just prioritize things 

I say this because I feel like eventually everything includes maintenance relationship, health, body, work, school etc.. and we don’t realize that maintaining something is very valuable.
