Wild thing is tomorrow's pose for #MayYourHeartOpen  
1. From Downward Facing Dog, come into a Side Plank on your right side. Step your left foot behind you, keep your right leg straight, and push your hips up away from the floor. 

2. Scoop your tailbone and use your legs to keep lifting your hips. Curl your head back, lift your left side body, and keep your left upper arm moving toward your shoulder socket. 

3. Extend your left arm over your head and curve into a back bend. When you are done being wild, release, step back to Down Dog, and switch sides.

It is #WCW and it is so fitting because today I flew in to Washington and got picked up by my beautiful sister. I love her to the moon and back. We have been through thick and thin together and my love for her grows stronger every day. So excited to get to spend some time with her. 

Thought I would share a picture of us a year ago and a picture of us today. So thankful to be happier, healthier and stronger. Here I am with no makeup, just got off a flight... but I still can see the happiness exude from me.  It starts with a choice. If and when you are ready to make that choice I would love to hear from you. Hit me up!

Day 14 of #BlossomingIntoYoga  is Downward Facing dog. I am showing the advanced 3 legged variation. 

1. Begin on your hands and knees in a tabletop position. Align your wrists directly under your shoulders and your knees directly under your hips. The fold of your wrists should be parallel with the top edge of your mat.

2. Spread your fingers out wide and press firmly through your palms and fingers. Distributing your weight evenly across your hands.

3. Tuck your toes, exhale, and lift your knees off the floor. Reach your pelvis up toward the ceiling, then draw your sit bones back behind you. Gently begin to straighten your legs. 

4. Press the floor away from you as you lift through your pelvis, being sure not to lock your knees. As you lengthen your spine, lift your sit bones up toward the sky. Now press down equally through your heels and the palms of your hands.

5. Firm the outer muscles of your arms and press your index fingers into the floor. Lift from the inner muscles of your arms to the top of both shoulders. Draw your shoulder blades into your upper back ribs and toward your tailbone. 

6. Rotate your arms externally so your elbow creases face your thumbs.

7. Draw your chest toward your thighs as you continue to press the mat away from you, lengthening and decompressing your spine.

8. Engage your quadriceps. Rotate your thighs inward as you continue to lift your sit bones high. Sink your heels toward the floor.

Tomorrow's #BlossomingIntoYoga  is 
Mermaid Pose: 

Begin in Downward-Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana). Spread your fingers, lengthen your spine, lift your hips, and draw down firmly through your heels.
On an exhalation, bend your right knee and bring it forward between your hands. Place your right ankle on the floor near your left wrist, and your right knee near your right wrist. Extend your left leg behind you, keeping your kneecap and the top of your foot on the floor.
Press through your fingertips as you lift your torso away from your thigh, lengthening the front of your body. Release your tailbone back toward your heels. This is One-Legged King Pigeon Pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana).
Draw down through your right leg’s shin and balance your weight evenly between your right and left hips. Pull your thighs slightly inward toward the midline of your body.
Use the strength and stability of your legs to help lift and extend your spine even higher.
Rest your right hand gently on your right thigh. Bend your left knee. Reach your left hand back and clasp the inner edge of your left foot. Then slowly bring your left foot to the inside of your left forearm. Glide your foot closer toward your body until your foot rests in the crease of your left elbow. Press your foot firmly into your arm to activate your legs.
With your spine long and extended, lift your right arm overhead. Bend your right elbow and reach your right forearm behind your head. Clasp your left hand.
Square your hips and torso toward the front of your mat as much as possible. Press through your feet and legs to help activate your pelvic core and lift your spine.
Gaze slightly up toward the sky. Keep your face and eyes soft.
Hold for 5-10 breaths. To release, gently let go of your left leg and extend it along the floor behind your body. Bring your hands to the floor in front of you. Tuck your left toes, and step back into Downward-Facing Dog. Then repeat on the other side for the same length of time.

The evidence is staggering guys. My heart hurts. I could tell you scary facts all day long. The fact is, American's do not know what is in their food. EVERYONE needs to watch Fed Up. It is FREE on netflix.  

In an effort to #BeTheChange  I am starting a FREE online 10 day sugar free accountability group. I will help with recipes, shopping lists, guidance and TONS of information to help you protect your family and yourself! 

If you are one of the skeptics... then PERFECT! This is for you! Let's see if you can handle 10 days of eating the God given way, not the man made way.

#10DaysSugarFree  starts June 1st.   In this group we will start by cutting sodas and other sweetened beverages and foods that have ADDED sugars such as candy and desserts.
-EAT real, fresh, whole foods.
-Lay off all products that contain added sugar including honey (not raw), molasses, agave, etc., and all liquid sugars, such as sodas, bottled teas, fruit juices, and sports drinks>> this includes all artificial sugars and sugar substitutes!
-FOCUS on what you CAN eat. When you tell your mind you CAN'T have something, it wants it even more. (Ever heard, "you always want what you can't have?" yeah...that.)
-If it comes in a box/has a nutrition label, it's proooobably got added sugar OR sweetener of some kind. {{80% of foods in the grocery store have added sugar!}} Turn over the box, check the nutrition label and ingredient list. If you see sugar listed in any form, PUT IT BACK DOWN!
-The key is to eat FRESH foods FROM NATURE!
-Yes, you WILL have to cook. I have provided meal plans 

10 days guys. who is in? Who is ready to take the first step in prevention? 

This #FREE group will be done online in a private page so that we can all support one another. Email me: momwhatsfordinner@yahoo.com if you want in.

FREE! NO PURCHASE NECESSARY!!!!!

It is Monday morning and I am full of energy and excitement as i start my week. Are you excited? Or are you living for the weekends?
 I remember not long ago that was not my story. 
I remember being a part of the hustle and bustle of business life. I remember cubicle life. I have lived it. Never again. 
You see this is MY life. My ONE CHANCE. Being faced with a scary illness slapped me into reality. 
I am two weeks into training my new coaches and soon they will be flying like I am. Time for me to start getting ready for the next round of training. 
Who wants to change their story? 

Are you tired of living the same week over and over?
Do you want to help others find their happiness?
Do you like yoga or fitness challenges and can possibly see yourself running them one day? 
Do you want a large group of positive, loving, and uplifting  friends?
Do you know you were made for so much more than what you have?
Are you tired of attracting the wrong type of people into your life? 
Are you ready to live your best life?

I would like to help you! My fit family is amazing. They are the wind beneath my wings.  I wake up every day excited and happy. I am living the dream and you can too. 

Why are you letting someone else pay you to build their dream when you can be building yours? Hit me up. Let's talk. I would love to hear about your journey and see if you are a good fit for my team. 
EMAIL me please. DM just doesn't work well. 
my email is momwhatsfordinner@yahoo.com 

Let's get you out of your cubicle and into the world!
