A few weeks ago @silverhazemermaid helped me with learning tripod egg so I could start feeling comfortable now I can hold it for over a minute and now I can get my legs up. I am pretty happy that I have started to get out of my shell and do more challenging poses. I hope by next month I can have my legs in the air in a full tripod headstand!! But damn I am proud to finally test my limits. Even as afraid of upside down poses they are so beneficial and I have the strength to learn them everyday is ❤ progress.

Stretching is essential for keeping our body actively mobile and strengthening can reverse many health concerns including lower back pain, muscle spasms, headaches and weight.
Keep your body young by finding ways to strengthen tight areas in your own anatomy and consistently practice them. I always find my daily practice yoga as my get to go, but I also use a foam roller, resistance bands, yoga blocks and stairmaster as excellent tools for opening up my angry hamstrings and calves.
As a runner and yogi It is essential for me to keep strengthening other areas of my body and not just run!!! I utilize alot of my leg muscles and core when I am in intense training for races and so crosstraining with strength training helps me balance out my weaker muscles and improves my performance. If I choose not to do yoga and strength classes I would still be getting shin splints and plantar fascia issues.
Over the years I have learned alot about what I can and cannot do with training. Also, I figured out my right leg is stronger than my left and my left arm is stronger than my right. Realistically, all said and done training 6 times a week makes getting into full splits just as much harder and I am perfectly ok with that. 😂😂
Meal prep life. Roasted Veggies, feta and tofurkey Italian sausage. 40g protein 48g carbs 17g fat 480kcal
Decided to get my mealprep game back on 😂 fun fact: NO ONE taught me how to cook.
Lately I have canceled outdoor hiking events for @peakfoothills because of unhealthy air quality from all the smokey skies. Literally, CA is on fire it makes me sad but it is reality. I would rather want my members to enjoy nature and not have any health issues because of it. Therefore, I will be hosting a few hikes a month through fall unless air quality concerns rise up look out for dates for September-November hikes! Where would you like to hike in Northern California this fall?

I will not be buying into pyramid scheme companies. If your intention is to sell me on coaching for arbonne, Herbalife, beachbody, and or any other weightloss company I really do not give a fuck. 😂 Usually I care tooooo much I am empathetic but I CANNOT stand ponzi scheme weightloss companies as a health educator. Anyone sending me valid advertisements please STOP I get asked 10 times a day and I do NOT intend to answer back because it is not worth my time and energy. That does NOT teach the importance of a balanced diet!!! If your supporting and spending $80-$120+ a month on supplements your wasting money long term eat real food and exercise. Set a good example learn to cook and meal prep and become aware of what your eating.
Today I decided to take a day out of Folsom to explore and hike near the pacific coast at Marin Headlands Recreation Area in Sausalito, CA. Nice little getaway including 8 mile coastal hike ❤
Cocoa Banana Protein Pancakes for the win topped with peanutbutter 36g protein. Btw I ate Cocoa Chia Protein Pudding at 4am cause woke up hungry lol with 30g of protein. Hiking Marin Pacific Coastal trails today so making sure I get enough calories beforehand cause I will be skipping one of of my meals. Grabbing a harvest veggie wrap at Sacramento Coop and putting together chopped apple 2 tbsp peanut butter and 10 multigrain chips. That's how I moderate my calories rather than logging thinking outside the box.
Been working on correcting my alignment with yoga postures with various strength classes including core development ❤ these days i think less about my weightloss (i weigh 15lbs more than 4 years ago but stronger and at healthy amount than anytime and still run a few times a week but I listen to how my body feels and crosstrain) let alone I've lost quite a bit over past years and lately I have been furthering my training in cardio kickboxing, warriorsculpt, vinyasa, gluteus maxout, AMP cycle ❤ and getting better at inversions including arm balances and beating my racing speed at trailraces. In addition, my diet over 5 years is 90% vegan (YES) and always eating enough nutrition for my recovery. When you workout everyday you must eat more or your training can suffer. Training is what you eat and how you train. 😁🌍🤸♀️🏋️♀️
