Keep it positive

Hello, I took an early morning yoga class with a new teacher, it was very challenging.....love it! My mind is relaxed and my muscles are killing me, what a great combination. I had a very frustrating day yesterday, so I wanted to write about positivity.

I realize we will all have bad days, that's inevitable. How you handle these days is what matters. So, with my bad day it started with my car and then filtered to every technological piece of equipment I use throughout the day. I honestly couldn't believe it when my phone, Internet, and ipod all went down on the same day. This was the straw that broke the camel's back, so to say, for me.

Since I've returned home from my journey, many things have changed, including my night job (for the worse in so many ways). Yesterday as I was dealing with problem after problem, I started getting so angry and negative. Then I thought to myself about all the people who were affected by the recent storms in the southeast....it made my problems seem trivial.

Instead of going out and drinking with friends, I went to the gym and cleared my head. My point to all of this is: When you are having a bad day, and under a big amount of stress, take a moment,breathe and think of all the positive things you have in your life. Then, go to the gym and work it out. I promise it will make you feel better.

Thank you for reading and no matter what shape and size you are, always love yourself!!!!


When you are cooking, substitute olive oil instead of butter. Olive oil is good fat your body needs that has health benefits. Also while dining out, ask your server to substitute the olive oil, I do this all the time and I have NEVER been told no.
