Photography

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted on my blog. I’ve been buried deep into photography lately because I want to turn it into a business in the near future. I’d appreciate you liking/sharing my Facebook page to help me get started!

And if you’re in the Chicagoland area, I’m still building up my portfolio, so I’m open to shooting for free. 🙂

Make Yourself Better

“It’s never too late to start over. If you weren’t happy with yesterday, try something different today. Don’t stay stuck, do better” – Alex Elle

So that’s what I’m going to do. I was in Downward Facing Dog yesterday during my practice and I wasn’t happy with how I looked — and felt. I used to be so great at keeping up with toning my body and it actually looking good. Lately I’ve had a setback because of my health (almost all better now, thankfully). So I’m slowly jumping back into my yoga practice and I’ve recently started up pilates again. It’s tough to get back into your routine workouts. I’ve realized it’s best to start off small. I went on a walk with my boyfriend that lasted about 45 minutes and the next day my thighs and calves were so sore. It’s difficult to keep up with working through your soreness. But in order for you to make a workout part of your daily routine, you need to do something every day. Even if it’s not your full workout. Because starting your workout over after a few months of rest is just plain awful. What’s more important than your workout is how you eat. Your body is so sacred. You can put whatever you want inside of it. But the thing is, it’s yours. Why hurt it with excess sugar and bad food. Plus, imagine how energized and wonderful you’d feel if you paid more attention to putting better food into your body.

So these are the two goals I’ve come to realize that I need to work on. It’s a habit I need to learn to form but it’s a very important one that could possibly change my entire future. Along with my eating habits and workout routines, I will be participating in my daily meditation practices to heal my mind.

Here’s to working at making ourselves better! 🙂
