waters

The skies parted and the STARS aligned when I found out about fruit infused water lol

We all KNOW how important drinking enough water is to our bodies that are made up of over 70% water but I know that so many of us struggle to get enough water in!

I personally chug 20-24oz of room temperature alkaline water first thing in the morning when my body is CRAVING water the most and I try to chug 16-20 oz about 20 minutes BEFORE each meal as well but I love having yummy water at my desk and when I leave the home and this has even become a TREAT for me when I want something sweet as well!

Strawberry/lemon water heaven

What will you need?

3-4 frozen strawberries

Liquid stevia – i do love the lemon liquid stevia now for this too! but plain is fine!

Your favorite water on the go water jug or glass

Directions:

I have to say…this has actually helped me to get my BOYS to drink more water as well and I’m constantly telling them HOW important drinking their water is! In the mornings I will make this water and stir in some flavored probiotics as well for their gut health and they know HOOOWWW healthy their morning water is and talk about it all the time lol…they tell me “momma…if we don’t drink water we will die lol..water is the healthiest!” hahaha well something like that boys haha…but yes water is so important!

My top 5 things I taught them about living their best life are as follows:

  1. Drink lots of healthy water
  2. Eat lots of healthy food
  3. Get good sleep to HEAL our body and our mind
  4. Live in a BEAUTIFUL STATE..which they call a “happy state” lol
  5. And the most important  one of all…is to ALWAYS…i mean ALWAYS LOOOVVEEE their momma!! 

hahhaah i would say that is about right?! I had to sneak that in there 🙂 

I’m so bad..I know this lol

I hope this helps both YOU and your babies get in more water and how important it is.

A Grateful heart wipes out fear…

A Grateful heart doesn’t believe in scarcity and always has an abundance coming up ahead….

A Grateful heart turns what you have into enough…

**********************

For too many years I lived a life in fear and scarcity and was too afraid to step out of the box….I also focused on ALL the WRONG things each day and picked the WRONG emotions…emotions that poisoned me and sucked the energy right out of my body. I woke up every morning and asked myself “how do i feel..how do i feel…why don’t i have any energy…why do i feel so terrible…why me? why did this happen to me?” which are all very “normal” feelings a lot of us feel when we are having health issues/ anxiety or depression or sadness…or fatigue…. But I didn’t realize that I just needed to ask myself better QUESTIONS and also didn’t realize that I could direct and CHOOSE my emotions and how I wanted to feel or what I wanted to focus on… so now I wake up way differently…focusing on all the things I’m grateful for…”I am healthy..i am getting healthier…I am vibrant…I am joyful..i am loving…i am an amazing mother…I am WHOLE…I am a bad ass lol that can do anything she sets her mind to… MY MY…how things have changed….

and I owe it all to changing my morning routine which I was motivated to do this by Tony Robbins…I took what I learned from him and made it my own…it’s not the same everyday…and I encourage you to customize this and make it your own too…add your spin on to it…add what will serve you best…

Starting out committing to 10 minutes was SOO hard and i slipped and missed days many times until one day I realized that this was actually my whole life source…that it was when i DIDN’T do this every morning that my days were crazy and my emotions were all over the place and the day just dragged on…but when I plugged in I was so clear and energetic and loving and present and STRONG…I had a vision and a plan for my day…I didn’t let distractions or “problems” that popped up effect me the same way…I was in control of my emotions! Imagine that! lol

So I wanted to give you something simple to start with….

I introduce to you..your new best friend and life changer…

5-10 minutes to THRIVE lol

I dare you to commit to this for a week and see how things shift for you and your emotions and your life 🙂

  1. 1-2 minutes of Deep breathing and moving your body! As soon as you wake up…be focused on BREATHING deep…i like to take 4 quick breaths in through my nose….and 4 quick puffs of breath out through my mouth…it should be LOUD sounding…you want to get the bad stagnant air out…and breath in new life…imagine you are breathing in joy and energy and happiness and love…and move your body while you are doing it! I always turn on my favorite old song and dance around while i’m breathing…putting my body into state because your body will just stay BLAH and stagnant if  you don’t DECIDE other wise….dance…jump up and down…do some squats…get your arms up in the air…force your body into a peak state 🙂
  2. Drink 24 oz of water and focus on THREE things you are so grateful for. Two big ones and at least one simple and small thing you are grateful for. Maybe it’s for your spouse or for the roof over your head or the smile your child gave you or the hug they gave you the night before or the silly thing they said….or maybe you are grateful for the air in your lungs this morning or for the heart that is beating without you even having to tell it to… I love to turn on a more meditative song for the rest of this session…I will share it with you here! After you listen to this you will understand how my sessions go so long! lol Devi prayer:
  3. Send energy into yourself and others. I want you to sit and imagine a bright light coming from the sky..into your home…and shining into the top of your head…this is your crown chakra…it’s beaming brightly and filling your whole body with a healing light…imagine it coming in and healing every piece of your body…maybe you notice it is a soothing color? but it’s there healing you…and maybe after you have healed yourself with a loving  light you think of a few loved ones or friends that you want to send that same loving energy and light too…and imagine it filling them and healing them and loving them…wherever they are in the world….
  4. 1 minute of incantations- this is where I speak my TRUTHS into my body…some of them include that you can borrow or use are… I have all i need within me now…I have all the LOVE i need within me now…I have all the STRENGTH i need within me now…I am so healthy…I have so much energy that it flows through me….I am beautiful…i am strong..i am capable…I am WHOLE…I am playful and confident…I am an amazing leader…I am an amazing mother… What are you? speak that to yourself…The more you speak it..the more you will become it 🙂
  5. Visualize what you want to create that day and even visualize 2-3 of the major goals you are working to accomplish…SEE them completely coming to fruition right in front of your eyes…and even FEEL how you would feel in that moment when they come to manifestation..how proud you will feel that you pushed through….My first year in my beachbody business i visualized DAILY that we were building our family a home because of this business and helping others…and that came true…and then it was that I was able to retire my parents and they were working with me at our home…and that came true…. What are you wanting to create in your life? I want you to KNOW this and focus on this daily.
  6. and last again…stretch and jump around….and if you have a moment I always take a few seconds and jot down my THREE things that I MUST accomplish that day….maybe you need to make sure you make your spouse feel loved that day..or your children…or maybe you need to do a few things to move your business forward or your education…pick your THREE and get them done!

 

NOOWWWWW…..You are PRIMED and ready to ROCK and enter the world as your bad ass self lol…

Get out there and have fun…and make it happen
