When it comes to stuff I value in life, free time is at the tip top of that list, and not because I feel I don't have enough of it, but because it's what provides me the most opportunity to create the life I want to live while I'm living it. You see, whether you admit it or not, how you spend your time, is 💯 up to you. Yes I know some of you HAVE to go to work, or have other commitments..... But in reality, you only have to go to work because you are choosing to maintain a specific lifestyle that comes with certain bills. You wouldn't die if you quit your job, but you might have to downsize. 😎 The thing is, the older I get, the faster these moments seem to fly by and so I want to fill them as full as friggen possible with all the beautiful things, and people, that make me happy. I worked my last 12 hour Day shift of 2019 today 🎉 and when I got home I spent a good hour on my swing bench with my son, talking about shitty politics, being a teenager, and laughing about nothing. THAT was the best part of my day.... And now that I'll be doing 8 hour shifts for a while, I am looking forward to alot more evenings like tonight. 🥰👩👦. How are you spending your time??

It's not what you do once in a while that matters, but that which you do every day. Over the years I've made healthy part of my routine.
When I grocery shop I wash all my fruits and veggies and do some meal prep that night. I have dumbbells and release balls under my bed and my yoga mat close by. I carry extra runners and socks in my car. I make a habit of drinking hot lemon water and celery juice first thing in the morning. I eat salad (of some sort) daily. I move/balance/walk every day. When ever I put on my shoes I try my HARDEST to stay balanced on one foot, EVERY TIME.
How can you streamline your life to make health easier? What habits can you add in?

work! This round the hip flexors, typically tight in most people who are primarily seated. These buggers can be associated with low back pain, and tightness throughout the legs. Lifting your arms over your head in this position will extend the muscles through the core that connect to these muscles allowing you to get a deeper stretch.. the more you know 🤓 #BeStrongLife
It’s crazy how extensions can make your hair seem so much lighter! Check out this before!😍
This might be my least favorite pose - which is probably why it should be the one I should be working on. After all it's usually the pose we struggle with the most that we need to do the most. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'd argue this is true of life. In yoga I tell my students to lean into the discomfort, to become aware of the sensations rather than run from them. The hard stuff in life is a lot like the yoga poses we don't want to sit in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's uncomfortable, gets your heart racing and probably sets your fight or flight instincts on fire - I mean we've all wanted to throw something at our yoga teach before - But it is also teaching us something, it's making us stronger, and it's showing us where our weaknesses are but also our strengths. And I think we use our strengths to turn our weaknesses into new strengths. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At least that's what I tell myself when I'm in #chairpose
trying to run away from the firey sensations within my body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I guess I still need to work on that whole leaning in part with this one. Good thing it's called a practice <3 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Happy that strength is being maintained on this prep 😛
✖️ Lifting heavy is super important when dieting/prepping/cutting down. This is one of the most effective ways to ensure muscle loss does not occur when cutting weight 💪🏼
✖️ 10 weeks out from my very first competition @summershreddingevents
and I get more and more excited everyday
✖️ Any words of wisdom from those who have competed? 👇🏼👇🏼
Eating on the go ✨ my body THRIVES off paleo eating. BUT sometimes when your busy, eating out, in a rush, it can be HARD to maintain paleo. That is why I consider myself “paleo based” because I will still have, chickpeas, lentils, rice and GF options. I try to LISTEN to my body as much as possible and give myself the healthiest alternatives to what I’m craving. This helps me keep my consistency in my healthy lifestyle. ✨✨🌱

I’ve been obsessed with learning about Cinemagraph & I can’t & won’t Stop!
Pavelich CEO The MARK Consulting & Marketing
It’s small and simple movements that are going to work best so there is no need for a dramatic, energetic video.
If your camera has a video function, then use it but don’t worry about the resolution you are recording (when we come to save our cinemagraph shortly, you’ll see why).
You could even use the camera on your smartphone too, which means it’s even more accessible.
Keep your camera on a tripod whilst you film, everything needs to remain steady during recording. Repeat your action a few times so you can trim it down to the perfect starting point in Photoshop.
Your video clip only needs to around 15 seconds long at most. The final cinemagraph will only feature 2-3 seconds of movement so it doesn’t need to be a Hollywood epic!
The History of Cinemagraphs
Many attribute the dawn of the cinemagraph medium to Fashion Week 2011 in New York City. It was then that a pair of fashion photographers — Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg — began crafting and sharing a series of moving photos, which spurred a great deal of curiosity and interest from the fashion community and the media.
Without an adequate term to describe these creative images, the fashion photographers decided to coin a new phrase. And just like that, the term “cinemagraph” was born.
How Do Cinemagraphs Work?
The highest quality cinemagraphs are often created from 4K, and sometimes even 6K video. Though cinemagraphs can be exported in multiple file formats, exporting as a video file keeps the quality very high, and ensures they’ll look fantastic. File formats like H.264, and the new high efficiency video codec known as H.265 are the most common.
Where Can I Use a Cinemagraph?
Like photographs and video, the use case for cinemagraphs is endless. Artists are flocking to the medium to leverage its novelty and challenge the way in which they can express themselves.

Yes I’m a mom of 3. A single mom of 3 to make life the best journey. Do I have #stretchmarks
yes, do I care that I have them now, NO,,do I strive to be the best mom yes.. Until recently I really never knew what #selflove
or love was. Until now!!! I’ve learned you can never find love outside of yourself, it’s starts with loving yourself completely first, and knowing that the universe has your back completely. And the best thing now is I can teach my kids to love themselves, trust themselves and always believe that they are here for a purpose and always know that emotions are accepted and #ebbandflow

HOW TO BE AN ADAPTABLE COOK 👩🏻🍳 I began learning how to cook healthy about 2 years ago. Spent lot of time OVER buying food. Which ultimately led to WASTING money and food. Over the years I’ve learnt to buy LESS and cook as I go. Last night I had a few shrimp on hand, thought to myself “what would shrimp taste good with?”. My body CRAVED a burrito. Knowing that I had GF rice wraps, I opened the fridge and grabbed WHATEVER I had to make this imaginary burrito I was craving.
I ended up marinating the shrimp with spicy bean pickle juice with tabasco, frying it with onion, pepper and garlic. In the burrito I put, lettuce, beans, salsa and avocado. Everything I make is always spontaneous to what my body is CRAVING, listen to your body before you cook. You may surprise yourself ✨
