8 Ways to Make Sure You are Not Sabotaging Your Own Success

DIY_ Smoothie Meal Prep.png

You want change in your life. In your body. In your finances. In your sex. The hard thing about finally committing to taking personal responsibility for your life - is that now you have no one to blame. If things aren’t going your way, it’s up to you (and only you) to turn things around. You want to taste success, but you may be standing in your own way.

Here are some common mental blocks that may be keeping you from building the BODY and LIFE you (think) you want:

  1. Self Worth - What do you believe about yourself, really? How is your internal dialogue? What is it that you believe you deserve or are willing to tolerate in this life? To spend some time recognizing your mental and emotional patterns around your self worth could be the key to unlocking the blocks that are keeping you from what you desire. If you don’t have a loving relationship with yourself, you may be subconsciously sabotaging the possibility of beautiful things coming into your life. A commitment to developing your physical fitness (we’ve got you covered) and mental discipline are the foundation for turning this ship around. When you work hard on your body and discipline your mind - you will see a shift in your beliefs about yourself. From there, you can experience an ease of calling in what it is you want - because you yourself believe you are worthy of it

  2. No Silent Time - You don’t take any time in silence for yourself, do you? It is DETRIMENTAL to your mental / emotional (and therefore physical) health, and it is keeping you stuck in your current paradigm. Time in silence is critical for allowing your mind and emotional system to process the happenings of your life. It is similar to your physical digestion of food. Silence is your digestive system for detoxifying and integrating the experiences of this life. If you are in a constant state of accumulation - physically, mentally, etc - you will NEVER be able to have the clarity required to manifest change in your life. Take space daily to be silent, with nature, and alone with yourself. This is the hidden secret and necessary key to unlocking clarity around where it is you are heading and how it is you will get there.

  3. Working hard (not smart) - Just because you work all day doesn’t mean you are getting anywhere. Often times, we work ourselves to physical, spiritual, and psychological exhaustion - which does NOT mean more money, more productivity, or bring us any closer to our goals. Without space for silence, we can fall into a trap of constant stimulation and being a hamster on a wheel with no real clarity on where we are headed. Physical fitness, meditation, and time in silence are the places where we are able to take much needed space for ourselves and get super clear on working SMART instead of obsessing over working HARD.

  4. Lifestyle + WHY Clarity - What is the life you want? For me, I wanted to live in a small hippie village on the Caribbean and travel the world freely. All while teaching self love, ancient yogic teachings, and body movement. I wanted to create my life around my own health being the foundation of my business. It took time with myself and a lot of deep questioning to get clarity around the life I wanted and WHY I wanted. The root of what I am searching for is radical FREEDOM and always looking for ways to feel revitalized in my body. Without clarity on what it is you want your life to look like or the WHY behind that, it is going to be nearly impossible to manifest that desire in the physical plane. So get clear. What is it that you want? Why do you want it? And how it is that you can make it happen?

  5. Money Wound - This comes up time and time again. The Money Wound. Our relationship with money comes from what we have learned from our parents, our society, and from what we believe about ourselves. The relationship between our physical fitness, sexuality and financial thriving is so very deeply connected. Take some time to ask yourself - what do you believe about money? What is your relationship to it? It may be time to re frame how it is that you view money, and it is almost always a block that we have to truly stepping into the kind of life we imagine for ourselves.

  6. Self Discipline - Are you disciplined? Do you commit to clean eating, moving regularly, taking space for yourself in silence, and practicing self love / care on a daily basis? A lack of self discipline is a lack of self love. Without discipline, we are unable to create what it is that we desire in our lives. I invite you to make yourself a workout schedule, carve out time to work on professional development, make sure you are introducing practices in self care, and STICK TO IT. To discipline oneself is to love oneself. You’ve got this. It is the key to success.

  7. Consistency - Are you consistent? Or do you get excited about something, try it on for a few days, and then move on to the next best thing? Do yourself a favor. Get really clear on what is important to you, create a schedule to make it happen, and get started NOW.

  8. Accountability - Who keeps you accountable to your goals? Do you have a fitness buddy? A business partner? How can you create more community in your life and surround yourself with people who have similar values and goals? You can always join our accountability community to keep you fresh and inspired. :)

And that’s a wrap! Take responsibility for your own life. It’s a big step, but it creates freedom. Let’s dive into this new way of living, together.

5 Ways Your Emotions are Keeping You From Transforming Your Body

DIY_ Smoothie Meal Prep.png

Emotions are real. Even though it seems that ‘modern society’ has spent the last few centuries trying to bury that truth. How we feel emotionally has everything to do with our ability to experience fulfilling lives. And it could be that your emotions (and unwillingness / inability) to express them are keeping you fat or trapped in a body you don’t love.

How you ask? Here are the 5 ways…

  1. Insecurity can lead to hopelessness - Feelings of insecurity make us feel hopeless. And when we feel hopeless, we eat. And we usually don’t feel cravings for healthy, nourishing food when we are in this mental state. We grab for things that we have lacked evolutionarily - sugar and salt. We eat, we feel guilty, we feel bad in our bodies, we feel insecure, we feel hopeless, we eat some more. Etc. You know the cycle. And the way to move ourselves out of insecurity is a commitment to physical fitness. When we move our bodies, we send new powerful messages to our brains and systems. We feel good, we make better dietary choices, and we are able to interrupt this hopeless cycle that has gotten you trapped in a body you don’t love.

  2. Lack of emotional expression slows down digestion - We have to digest and process everything in life. This includes our experiences, our thoughts, and our emotions. If we don’t process through our emotions (through physical exercise, sharing our feelings with a trusted confidant, being in silence, meditation, being with nature, etc) - we accumulate an emotional blockage and slow our digestive system. This can show up as physical symptoms in digestion and even manifest as physical disease if not addressed. It is extremely important that you have a regular practice of processing your emotions to maintain ultimate health of body and mind.

  3. Unbalance in hormones - Just as our body can affect our mind, our mind can affect our body. When we aren’t healthy emotionally, our hormones can become out of balance. Our hormones affect our weight, our mental health, our sleep / wake cycles, and so many other vital functions of the body. If we don’t commit to emotional release practices, this can very easily translate to physical weight and fat being stored on the body.

  4. Eating too much creates false sense of security - When we don’t feel financially secure or physically safe - we gravitate to unhealthy foods. Stuffing our stomachs with foods that have been evolutionarily lacking (sugar + salt) pulls lots of blood into our digestive center and gives the brain a temporary and false sense of security. Because we aren’t actually processing our feelings of scarcity or insecurity - we turn to food to provide symptomatic relief for these deeply rooted emotional issues. Taking the time and space to work with these feelings from a spiritual perspective (through movement, meditation, yoga postures, sound healing, talk therapy, etc) can be the key to kicking cravings, having more peace in our inner lives, and allowing our bodies to transform into a healthy state of balance.

  5. Holding on to the past - We easily develop patterns of attachment. Mentally, emotionally, and physically. If we are emotionally clinging to the past, this can manifest physically as our bodies holding on to weight. Extra weight is a way that we protect ourselves from vulnerability. Being willing to go there and truly feel into the wisdom of the past with the intention of letting go and healing the wounds of yesteryear from a spiritual perspective can be the foundation to creating more health in the physical body.

From a yogic perspective, we experience panic attacks when we have too much solar energy in the energetic system. In order to calm our systems down, we need to practice techniques that invite in lunar energy. We need to move from being in a hyper aware and stressed sympathetic state in our nervous system to inviting in a calming para-sympathetic state.

This is a 30 minute class designed to support someone experiencing panic currently or who often experiences panic in the body / mind.

Register now for the FREE Water Challenge : Feel Sexier Naked Now

Ah, the elements. What powerful tools for supporting us in feeling more harmony in our bodies and inner life. Water. Is. So. Important. For feeling good in our bodies, balanced in our emotional cycles, and healthy in our minds. We want you to hop on board with us with a commitment to drinking WAY more water. Why?

Because it will help you feel sexier naked.

  1. Burning Fat - Are you working hard on a cardio and strength training regimen to drop body fat and feel sexier in your body? All of that work you are putting in could be in COMPLETE VAIN if you are NOT drinking enough water. Water is the element responsible for flushing and detoxifying your system. Even if you are ‘burning fat’, if you are missing the quality neccessary to actually flush anything from the system - you aren’t going to see meaningful results. Your body won’t trust you to get it what it needs. So, it holds on to what it has. Drink more water. Lose more fat. Simple.

  2. Clear Skin - You want that glow. That healthy, vibrant, love-my-life, get plenty of sex, have ease in my inner life, beautiful, sexy, glow. Your skin is a HUGE indicator of health. It can be a doorway to telling us what’s out of balance internally, and I know that when my skin is vibrant, I feel alive. I feel more confident, and I feel that I can show up in the world with a foundation of self love and vibrant health. Water is the secret. Lots and lots of water. Again - detoxifying the system and giving yourself the chance to flush anything out that needs to move. So that it doesn’t have to find other ways to escape - ie. through the skin. Another trick I recommend here is Dry Brushing. Exfoliating the skin, drinking tons of water, and enjoy more naked confidence.

  3. Increase Inner Peace / Confidence - Your hormones change. Especially for the ladies reading this right now - you know this. Our lunar cycle has a huge impact on our inner life and general feelings of well being and confidence. If we are dehydrated - this can be a significant strain on the hormonal system. It can make us feel depleted, annoyed, bring up feelings of scarcity, isolation, anger, and more. A simple fix to support ourselves in hormonal regulation and more harmony in our inner life - is to DRINK MORE WATER.

  4. Smell Better - That’s a little direct, yeah? But it’s true. Body odor is real. Especially for those of you who are training hard and committing to a good sweat every single day. And toxins stink. It’s true. And water helps. So, drink more water, and have less body odor. Let your commitment to hydration be a fountain of self love, self confidence, and taking care of yourself. You won’t regret it.

I’ve got a challenge for you to help you kick start the habit.

6 Amazing Body Sculpting Resistance Band Exercises to Try Right Now

DIY_ Smoothie Meal Prep (1).jpg

Get started by watching the video here:

That sweet sore feeling. When you wake up in your bed in the morning, take that big stretch, and run your hands over your body for the first time that day. And you feel that sweet soreness, a feel good sensation of knowing that you have worked your body. Challenged your mind. You took the time out of your day to challenge your strength, be with your breath, and work towards more confidence internally and physically.

Resistance bands can get you there.

And they can be worked with at home or in the gym.

I want to let you in on a few resistance band exercises that work with your body weight and additional resistance depending on your personal fitness goals. When we work with functional movement like this - we are strengthening our bones, building stability in the joints, challenging our cardiovascular system, and building strength in our muscles. So many benefits.

You can get a full work out in with these movements. I’ve broken them down into Upper Body + Lower Body movements.

 

Upper Body Strength

Position 1 (1).jpg
Position 1 (2).jpg

Push Up

  • Place resistance band under both palms and on the back of the shoulders

  • Hold plank or practice push ups with the elbows tight into the body

  • Take as many reps as possible (Go for 10 - drop the knees if you need to!) - 25 max

  • Move immediately into the next exercise

Pull Ups

  • Loop resistance band in the middle of the pull up bar. Try various restance levels with both your knees and feet (be careful!) to find the combination that challenges your strength but makes the pull up possible

  • Take a wide grip with the hands and pull your face up to the bar

  • Take as many reps as possible (Go for 10!) - 25 max

  • Move immediately into the next exercise

Shoulder Press

  • Stand on the resistance band and hold either side of the band with both hands

  • Grab hold of the bands with the palms facing in front of you. Mindfully press the hands from shoulder level up and over head. The slower, the better.

  • Return back to starting position. Keep the belly engaged and the knees soft throughout the entire movement.

  • Go for as many reps as possible - 25 max

  • Move immediately into the next exercise

 


Lower Body Strength

Kickback

  • Start in a table top position with your wrists below your shoulders and knees below your hips

  • Secure the resistance band below each of your hands and behind the first foot

  • Extend the leg back, keeping your hips parallel to the ground and engage your glutes at the top of the movement

  • Maintain core engagement throughout the exercise

  • Go for as many reps as possible + then switch legs - 25 max

  • Move immediately into the next exercise

Shoulder press with squat

  • Stand on the resistance band and hold either side of the band with both hands

  • Grab hold of the bands with the palms facing in front of you. Take the hands to shoulder position.

  • Feet can be hip distance apart with the feet parallel to one another, or you can take them a bit wider and point the toes out to be in line with the knees as you squat.

  • Sit deeply back into a squat, keeping the weight in your heels. Be mindful that the knees do not come in front of the toes.

  • As you come to stand, mindfully press the hands from shoulder level up and over head. The slower, the better.

  • Return back to starting position in the squat with hands near your shoulders. Keep the belly engaged and the knees soft throughout the entire movement.

  • Take as many reps as possible - 25 max

  • Move immediately into the next exercise

Dead lift

  • Stand on the resistance band and hold either side of the band with both hands.

  • Feet can be hip distance apart with the feet parallel to one another, or you can take them a bit wider and point the toes out to be in line with the knees as you lean forward.

  • Maintain a straight spine and strong core as you hinge from the hips and allow the chest to come forward.

  • Maintain a soft bend in the knees. It is not a squat, nor are the knees locked. 

  • As you come to stand, mindfully press into the heels and engage the glutes.

  • Return back to starting position. Keep the belly engaged and the knees soft throughout the entire movement.

  • Take as many reps as possible - 25 max

  • Now you rest 2 minutes! And then begin the circuit again to complete 2-5 times total.

 

10 - 25 REPS each exercise (increase or decrease resistance to match your fitness level)

Complete the circuit, rest 2 minutes.

Try some of these movements out, and let us know what you think !

DIY: Morning Smoothie Prep

DIY_ Smoothie Meal Prep.jpg

You want to feel better naked. More confidence. More self love. A deep knowing that you are taking phenomenal care of your body + your soul from the inside out. Small adjustments to how we live our daily lives are all we need to start seeing huge changes in our mental dialogue and in our bodies.

Having a practice of starting your day in high vibe health is the foundation for how you shape the rest of your day. Days turn to weeks, weeks turn to months, and small adjustments in your daily routine become your life.

I want to let you in on a super powerful strategy that I use to start my day with health + self love. Smoothies. And not just smoothies, but pre-prepped, delicious, throw-it-in-the-blender-and-done smoothies. If we take even just half an hour to prep our greens / fruits in the morning for the week, we have a week of high vibe, nutritiously dense goddess nectar to wake up to every morning. So easy. So beautiful.

And here is how it works….

Must Have:

  • 7 Ziplock bags or mason jars to freeze ingredients in freezer

Put in each bag or jar:

  • 2 cups fruit (options include mango, blackberries, strawberries, watermelon, pineapple, pomegranate, raspberries, peach, or your favorite fruit!)

  • 2 cup greens (spinach or kale densely packed)

  • 1 banana or ½ an avocado (for creamy texture)

Place in the freezer.

Before blending, add 1 cup of either yogurt, milk, substitute milk, or water. Also feel free to add spirulina or other organic vegan protein powder. Also optional to add 2 teaspoons HONEY for sweetening.  

And that's it ! Smoothie meal prep is so freakin’ easy and can make your day SO much better. Be sure to change the recipe up week by week to make sure you are getting variety in your vital nutrients. And don’t forget to add (tons) of greens!

Try it out this week, and I dare you to tell me it didn’t make your mornings WAY more high vibe, easy, and full of SELF LOVE.
