“You had the power all along My dear.” .
Happy Wednesday Friends!! Meet @chicroom_bym
She is Lifestyle Blogger, Mom of two adorable Sons, and a Hardworking HR. We are happy to introduce this gorgeous lady in today’s segment “Wednesday with Local Blogger”
My insta-blog is my de-stress, and my outlet to share with you all, the things I am passionate about. My inspiration is all you women, who are juggling many roles – a wife, a mother, a working professional etc., and still trying to work towards making their dreams & passion a reality. I’m hoping that thru my blog and work, I will be able to inspire some of you. .
I’m the kind of person who does not want to live life with any regrets. Failures don’t scare me as much as never trying does. I like to choose Now over Never. .
I have been Bay Area resident for over 10yrs. I am married to my best friend, who is my biggest support and strength and we have two wonderful (and super energetic) boys. I work full time as a Human Resource professional.”

Turning that corner of 680 in Walnut Creek has always been my favorite. It’s insane how much you miss the simplest of things when they are taken away. Today we woke up to a bit healthier air and some rain...hopefully not too much though ☹️ hopefully this is the end to the #California
fires 🔥 stay safe friends. If you need a home you already know I got you 😉

I thought about so much during my 3k mile roadtrip across this continent. I thought about how scared I was to make this move. To quit my fulltime job, and literally drive away from my family & everything I knew. I thought about my life in third-person to the extent that I narrowed in on what my mission is, while I'm on Earth. The road will change you.
Thriftshoppin' in Berkeley. Bought these new jeans + shoes that make me feel like a unicorn 🦄
Walking around downtown Berkeley, and came across this beauty. God says hi 🏵
Although it won’t be a cure-all for the fires, I’m hoping the rain will come tomorrow. I have not been able to stop thinking about those affected for the past couple of weeks 😢 Stay safe 🙏🏼

Whatever you do, don’t throw away your over-ripe bananas! Peel them, freeze them, and use them to make smoothies. Lately, our favorite smoothie is simply frozen bananas and milk; I call it Banana Milk and my little monkeys go bonkers over it. It’s the ultimate refreshment after a long day at school. • I used to throw away my over-ripe bananas because I thought they were only good for banana bread and I don’t love to bake. Now I can’t keep enough frozen bananas stocked in my freezer! Off to make another round of perfectly blended Banana Milk. Do you have any favorite uses for over-ripe bananas? Do share! 🍌 #SimplySiliconValley
Healthy food does not equal low calorie! 🥑 🥜⠀⠀
This is probably the most common mistake amongst people starting a fat loss diet.⠀⠀
Because people associate healthy eating with being fit 🏋️♀️ and lean, and junk processed food with being unhealthy and overweight. ⠀⠀⠀
This can be true but it's not always the case!⠀⠀
📉 Weight management and body composition come down to mostly two things: calorie and macros. ⠀
👩⚕️Health, on the other hand, is influenced by these factors plus many many others, like micronutrients, activity levels, environment, type of food, sleep 😴 etc. ⠀⠀⠀
Typical examples are things like avocado 🥑, dark chocolate 🍫, nut 🥜 butter, coconut 🥥 or virgin olive oil ⠀⠀⠀
All these foods are considered very healthy for multiple reasons, but they are very energy dense.⠀
If you're trying to lose weight, you need to be in a caloric deficit and It’s not a good idea to start the day with a bar of chocolate covered in peanut butter and get a salad 🥗 with 4-5 spoons of olive oil. ⠀⠀
Believe me, it’s not! ⠀⠀
It's very important to understand the energy density of the food and balance it, especially when you're having a busy life. ⠀⠀⠀
Another important factor about food while dieting is satiety.⠀⠀
I posted already about satiety index, the importance of dietary fiber etc.⠀
If you want to know more about that, let me know in the comment below. ⠀
Or just anything that you’re interested! 📸 A great healthy bowl from @janeonlarkin
Venues that provide things like seating, catering, and lighting take the burden off your own to-do list. But what about Wi-Fi? Onsite IT? Any other technology perks a prospective venue provides, like Events at Hub925, will only simplify your planning. #TipOfTheDay
This half-moon goddess is teaching tonight at 6:15pm! Don’t miss out on being a Being of Power. And guess what! If you’re not late, you get more yoga! #baptisteyoga #dothework
Stretch. Move your body constantly. Even if you look a bit ridiculous. I used to be so self-conscious of how I “performed” yoga postures in class. But with time and practice you start to focus less on the mirror and more on how you feel in your body.
Not sure what I’m doing in this pic, this is also one of those poses that feels good and gets a really good stretch in the side body as well as the legs. Thanks @sianasrituals
for capturing this 😜

Throw back to fall last year. One bump and two babes. Oh yeh and a LOT more sunshine. Things sure have changed in a year!
This week in England we’re lining up carol services, nativity rehearsals, Christmas fairs and morning frosts... life is full of nostalgia as, for the the first time, my kids experience the run up to Christmas the same way I did as a kid. It’s pretty special. Just a little cold. ❄️ 🍁 😬 #nostalgia #california #meandmythree
