Do you have a certain time of the day to workout.? Does it matter when you workout.? Do you workout to be fit or because it’s a stress reliever.?
My mom loves working out at the crack of dawn and taking pictures of the sunrise. I on the other hand love working out at night and capturing the sunset. Yes we are literally night and day. I usually workout at night, but sometimes I do love working out in the afternoon or the morning because I know I will be lazy in the evening or I will be busy in the evening. I workout to help with stress. It’s such a stress free thing and I love seeing myself sweat afterwards. I love the results afterwards. I don’t do nothing extreme, but I do walking on the treadmill and sometimes I do workouts at home.
I also love working out at night because yes it’s a stress reliever for me, but it makes me tired and when I don’t workout at night I do stay up all night at times even if I am exhausted. I just have my brain working overtime and it won’t shut up to let me sleep.!
Either time of the day and what ever reason you workout for. . . health, stress reliever, because it makes you happy to workout each and everyday. . . keep at it and don’t give up. Keep going STRONG.!
Ever feel like you can’t get up to workout.!? Or you just don’t know what to eat. Ever want help, someone telling you what to eat and which workouts to do so you won’t have to burden yourself with all of that.? I know I do. It sucks when you are just starting out with a fitness routine and now you have to think of what to eat for breakfast,lunch and dinner and of course in between too.! Then on top of that what workouts do I do.? How do I know I am doing it right.? Well there is someone to help with that.

I am Pinning every food product, mainly smoothie on Pinterest these days. So I thought I would give you links to the ones I tried so far so you can try it out for yourself. I also included pictures of pinterest foods I did and of my own and description of how I liked them.
Smoothie Bowl– Don’t have this on pinterest, but done it before and it’s easy and soooo good. I used: Strawberries, Non Fat Greek Yogurt, blueberries, cinnamon, nuts and granola. Directions- Smash the strawberries(I used a food masher to crush them) then put greek yogurt in, I eyed it since I’ve done it before. I put nuts in the smoothie bowl as well and for toppings… blueberries, cinnamon for taste and some granola.
Creamy Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding– Okay so this one I saw on pinterest and in the comment section alot of people were saying they tried it and some of their’s came out a bit watery and how it was good either way. So I am a woman who likes to try food atleast once (SOME FOODS LOLS) So I followed the recipe to the T. I was afraid it was going to come out watery but it was thick enough.! I feel that leaving it overnight again would have made it thicker though. I ate some of it and the rest I did not. I didn’t like it IDK why, but it didn’t make me feel good. I was feeling awful for a few hours later and I had this for breakfast. I put strawberries and blueberries and cinnamon with nuts on top. Now my chia seeds are good I eat them all the time, but maybe my taste buds just wasn’t feeling it. Like I said others have said that they enjoyed it so I guess it was just me. I deleted the pin off my pinterest but here is the link to the page if you want to try it.
Whole Wheat Wrap– I didn’t find this one on Pinterest, but it was something I wanted to have for lunch and I am still full. I just had it about 20-30 minutes ago. I use a whole wheat wrap that we have and put butter on it and toasted it a bit. I had bacon, lettuce, chicken, and onions in it topped with honey mustard dressing and then I cut it in half. It was very delicious and I would be making again.!
I hope you like this blog post. Give it some likes so I would know if to do more. Thanks for visiting.! 🙂
I am down south and feeling more free than anything else. I don’t feel pressured or angry because of the fakeness. I don’t feel boredom I feel free and loose.
I haven’t done much I mean I am in the busiest city so I doubt I would have been able to do everything within 3 weeks, but what I’ve done so far feels liberating. The crazy part.? I haven’t done nothing out of the ordinary. I just don’t have fake people around me and that is what makes everything so perfect. Maybe I will encounter those kinds of people when I get out more, but I am wiser and different and I know when those kinds of people enter my life or at least are trying to, so I know who to shut out now.
Feeling free by doing NOTHING never felt so good. I don’t hear the same excuses anymore. The same lies and have to pretend to care. I don’t “care” about people’s feelings anymore because I WILL NEVER EVER see them again.!! I can finally shut them out of my life. Before I felt like I had to talk to them because there was no one else. I knew noone else there, but now I don’t give a damn. I deleted them from social media and my phone and my life and I swear I haven’t seen a gray hair since. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
I haven’t done much besides the movies and visiting supermarkets and different places I will be going to every now and then. Still haven’t had the chance to see my best friend yet because she works nonstop and lives 3 hours away, but we are still planning. I am applying for jobs, I am doing everything I did there, but here I am happier. I am content. More Free than I’ve ever been. IDK if it’s being here or taking those people out of my life or both, BUT GOD does it feel AMAZING.!! Knowing I won’t hear those same excuses of why people can’t go out or the lies & sappy stories and pretend to care. I don’t have to no more because I am gone and I finally realized not to care and to stop being afraid of being alone.!!
So here are some pictures I captured throughout my three weeks of being here. Live, Laugh, Love. BUT most IMPORTANTLY BE TRUE TO YOU.!!
Took a walk and needed to snap these pictures
Proud of who I am
Art is sometimes transparent and sometimes it’s just a tentative thing
When you try to get a schedule going and you see improvements
Going to take me a while, but I will get there. Can’t be weak forever right lols
Hey everyone. I am so sorry that I haven’t posted a wcw in a few weeks I’ve been crazy busy. But I finally have time now so here is your second #WCW If you have not read the first WCW you can here
My #WCW: Fitness Edition for this week is model Sommer Ray. She is a 20-year-old female who was born and raised in Colorado. Both her parents were bodybuilders which she said made her want to compete in competitions as well. Which she started to do when she was very young. She was a bikini athlete. This is her competition history. . . 2015 NPC Colorado State Championships, Bikini Teen – 1st 2015 NPC Colorado State Championships, Bikini Class D – 1st 2015 NPC USA Championships – 16th.
In 2016 she started posting videos and pictures of her lifestyle on instagram and started to be recognized for her aesthetic physique making her a social media sensation and a fitness icon. Sommer Ray loves her body. She works hard for it and she shows it off with no care in the world. She always posts pictures with her in bikinis and she always has on a monokini thong swimsuit to show of her ASSests. She loves to show off her ass. It makes her feel confident and beautiful knowing that she worked so hard for it and it didn’t come easy.
You appreciate things more when it’s not handed to you on a silver platter. When you work hard for something that you didn’t have and you successfully get it and it’s better than what you expected it feels amazing.!
That moment when you realize you are just FINE.! I don’t mean in the sexy way, but the emotional way. When you tell yourself you are FINE the way you are. Yes I am at that point in my life now. People always say when you reach a certain age you just become okay and happy with yourself.! And I guess I reached that age peak because it’s in overload over here.
I am FINE if I don’t get a workout in, whether it’s because I forgot because I am busy or just because I don’t want to do a workout. I don’t punish myself and my mind and body for it anymore. I don’t have a gym that I go to for excercise so I just workout in my basement right now. And sometimes I don’t want to get up to go workout in my basement. I get bored VERY easily and just getting up to workout in my HOUSE is VERY PLATEAU for me.! Not much growth and movement for me.! I love fitness classes.! Yoga, Spin class, Zumba, etc…. Now that is my type of workout.!
I do try to stay active and eat healthy, but honestly I eat EVERYTHING with no shame. I just portion my food and work it off lols. I feel bad at times when I don’t do a workout and I eat “bad”. I am a semi healthy woman who eats healthy enough, no diets please.!! I was standing in the mirror and I really looked at myself.! I am a thick melanin woman who is chubby in my tummy area, but it’s not that bad. ATLEAST I don’t look pregnant.! I have thick thighs, a huge ass(IMO LOLS) & I realized I am just FINE.! I am okay with myself and my body. Of course there are things I want to continue to work on, but overall I am FINE.! I am happy with my body after all God made it a temple for me to be in. I am an inimitable human being who is just FINE and is FINALLY okay with being FINE and not PERFECT.!!!
ARE YOU OKAY WITH JUST BEING FINE AND NOT PERFECT.?
I thought I would do a WCW fitness edition for all my fitness people out there looking at certain bodies to admire. I am going to start with Yovanna Ventura.
Yovanna Ventura is a 21-year-old hispanic fitness model who posts on her Instagram Yovanna Ventura, about her workout routines and her meal plans. She also posts about the shakes she takes, her vacations and where she will be modeling for the day. She just bought herself a penthouse in Miami and she also graduated from Miami High School about 2 years ago.
Now why did I choose her to post about for my first WCW fitness edition.? The answer is simple…. it’s because she is the “type” people look at when it comes to being fit and beautiful.! They look at someone who has abs, who’s skinny, light-skinned, long hair, the usual “model” type.! I love Yovanna Ventura and she is very beautiful. She is doing well in her life. I can’t wait to see where she will be in the future. She is a woman who works hard for her body and her health. She is always showing off her butt and her stomach because those are the most important assists to her. What is/ are yours.??? She lives a happy satisfied life with her dog Tatum and she does not care about what people think about her.
P.S. Yes she is the woman who was linked to Justin Bieber a few years ago.
