Good evening all,

When I came home one day, it was great to have new gym gear that I was hooked up with by Ammo Athletic. I loved the way the fabric felt making me feel very comfortable with its racer-back fit. This made me feel like a lioness and invincible with whatever I am trying to accomplish. Ammo Athletic’s logo of the tiger shines through and when things get rough you always finish what you start. It was awesome to share this with friends and family because the company motto on the shirts “Stay Hungry” is right on for anyone that is barely starting off the gym for the first time or people who have been going consistently.

It is great to share some of my knowledge for years to my other peers or friends. Today, I was talking to a friend and told me some of her goals that she wants to reach to get that summer body she deserves. First and foremost, it has been one of my passions to let someone feel that they can attain anything and so we will record her progress along the way. First thing I always say is “Are you committed to attaining your goals?” because if you are you got to do whatever it takes and unleash the fire inside of you to finish your workouts without any problem at all. It may sound like I am a sergeant and take it super serious because I enjoy having a fitness and healthy lifestyle. It started with taking a before picture then told her to add my fitness pal to log food and exercise routines in order to see what she is putting in her body and how far she can exert herself in accomplishing her goals. Right now, she may not feel as strong but little by little she will get it done because I know she will stop at nothing to make it happen. I also  It does take some time to get used to it if you have never done it before. I promised to my friend with great nutrition and a consistent workout routine that you can see the results that you want to get, progress you will notice in about a month. The only way you get to see it is if you are persistent, some people believe a gym myth that involves more weights hence getting muscular, however, that is not true, it actually depends on the amount of the reps and weight for you to gain more tone.

Please comment below in how you unleash the fire within?

Good afternoon all,

In the vicinity of doing things outside the comfort zone, I did something that I thought I would never do which is to bring my writing to life. I decided this past Wednesday to not only post about Day 6 of Shredz training but to show a little something to many readers and viewers regarding some of the exercises I am following on this new training routine. From talking to many of my peers, I decided to not put a niche focus on one passion but to explore everything that makes my heart beat. With that said, a good friend of mine thought I can make it more lucrative than just fun so by showing my journey through pictures and videos of how to do proper form in the exercises that I am following on the day to day basis people would be more inspired and think if she can do it and it only takes one step than I can too. I have known through the years of being active it takes perseverance and dedication to attain anything in life. It takes hard work to lead a healthy lifestyle and in the end it always pays off. Since it does not only take to exercise well to have the body you desire it also includes food as well.

I have been learning little by little to cook healthy meals or to even cook in general, it may not be my passion but when you are hungry you become a creator or inventor if you will. Yes, I know what you all are thinking what if you burn yourself, well I am here to tell you that is part of learning. So whenever I find someone that I can learn from I ask a lot of questions that is another thing if you have the form or you are doing something wrong in the kitchen I am here to tell you no question is dumb and that is ultimately the process of learning. Come to think about it whenever you are in a path in life you never stop learning and I am always eager to learn whether it is figuring out the different types of stoves before you start cooking eggs your way etc. Another thing, there are some instances where I decide to lose myself in a vacation and do not decide to follow the routine but again I am human, however, I do try to do that as little as possible because that should not be an excuse to not workout unless you are taking the much-needed rest days. I would also like to mention the fact that rest days are very important to replenish your muscles, relax, and do not forget to hydrate with lots of water.

Something to remember always is that all humans have different bodies, therefore, do not go past your normal heart rate when you are working out because it can have significant consequences such as causing a heart attack so extremely important to know yourself and your body just how far you can push it. Lastly, I am going to leave you with this doing things outside your comfort zone helps you grow as a person and we must always want to embrace the process of growing each and everyday even if it is just 1% at a time.

Please comment on any experience you have had to go the extra mile outside of the normal means and now I leave you also with this quick clip of the proper way of doing medicine ball slams hope you all like it.



{March 15, 2017}   Music soothes your soul :)

Music

Good afternoon all,

I know it has been more than a minute, I wanted to let you all know about my other passion in life and that is music, just recently one night I decided to sing my heart out to some cover songs that you might all know such as one of my favorite influences Kelly Clarkson to her song Because of You, Sarah McLachlan to her song In the Arms of an Angel, Sia to her song Chandelier, or even decided to give my sound a little Rock Edge by covering the song Numb by Linking Park. As a person that has taken vocal lessons in the past, I tend to be super critical on my sound. I joined this renowned Karaoke game called Smule where they score you on harmony, arrangements, pitch, etc. I loved music ever since I was little and the first song that I ever sang was for my Kindergarten Christmas play and it was one of Whitney Houston’s greatest hits The Greatest Love of All. I don’t know if you all had the same feeling or not when you are singing in the shower, there is some great echo and sound bouncing all over the place but it makes you feel invincible since you are doing something that no one is watching.

For anybody that has never sang in their life, this is being outside of their comfort zone and it is exhilarating. There are some people in that game I told you guys about that try their best but kill the harmony, not everyone is perfect and after all it is just a game. Your goal is to find the best one that matches your sound to give any song some justice. The best feeling in the world is also dedicating a song like I did once to my niece when I said, “What is your favorite song?” and she said Seven Nation Army, granted I know Jack White has a lower sound than I do but to be a versatile artist, you must learn to sing all kinds of music so I was so happy I did the song justice for her and she loved it. I know a lot of people can relate to me when yo

u are going through a breakup and when you listen to a song that reminds you of your ex and you sing your heart out, you are singing with all the inner being of your heart. It does make you cry and get a little emotional after all that was your song together as a couple.

If you truly loved someone then you realize why you did and why things happen for a reason. Music can soothe your soul when you are stressing out from problems at home, financial issues, work, relationship issues, etc. Music can also soothe your soul to get pumped up to go back to training mode in the gym and also motivates you to become 1% better each and everyday. Music has many meanings in life whether it is motivational, cheers you up, pumps you up, helps you have a sound sleep, makes you wanna dance, helps you through a heartbreak, etc. Music helps you move on and look forward to what is next in life whether it is a step to a new career, new house, new love, new venture, etc. Whenever you hit rock bottom in anything, you got to remember that the only way to look now is up and keep moving forward and never give up on any goals you may have.

Please enjoy one of my fave songs to sing and comment below and as always never give up:)

{March 8, 2017}   Enlightened Sunday:)

Family

After a night of hanging with friends and meeting up with my cousin, all I can think about is getting to hear the sermont at Church on Sunday morning along with seeing all my friends that I have made in that community. It was nice to see my aunt and uncle and worship God with them. It was enlightening and set the tone of my week. It was great news to hear that my uncle finally retired and now he can dedicate himself to hobbies and the grandkids. It was nice to do some catching up with all of them and have a great lunch at our usual Mandarin Restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles.

We talked about how things are going in the house and the upkeep along with what has been going on in life with me etc. I let them know that I am okay and doing all these little things to embrace my passions as well as continue to applying to different places until I land something I love. Without love of what you do, you are doing something wrong. I am a strong believer in when things happen for a reason and they are not the right fit such as in all jobs out there, then you are meant for something greater. So I tell you this, you will always have your family for the good times and bad supporting your every move because they have faith in you, but you must always have faith in yourself to accomplish anything.                     As relatives would say, in looking for a new career, you must have security and benefits, that is by far the top of the list but in addition I must be passionate about it I cannot stand being in something I hate. There are also some really cute kids at church and I was making the little one applause for the  songs and it was very cute. I love having fun with the kids because it is the best to see them on their age of innocence. It is awesome to hear the many good things that is happening to the rest of my cousins such as furnishing their new place or getting promotions. I know I will accomplish anything I set my mind to and I aim high in everything in life so never sell yourself short.

Please share your favorite Sunday fun day moments 🙂 “No dream is too big to accomplish.”
