30-Day Yoga Challenge 🧘🏾‍♀️

I actually hate going to the gym. In an attempt to find an exercise I like and fit exercise into my schedule more frequently, I decided to challenge myself to 30 days of yoga.

For the first few days, I was really on track. It felt great to accomplish such a small goal everyday. Sometimes, I was able to do yoga first thing in the morning & it really set me off on a good foot. I would bring the dog with me so I was able to knock out 2 tasks at once 💪🏾 adding this “to-do item” to my day helped me started getting up earlier & ultimately, get more out of my day 🤷🏽‍♀️

Why Breakfast is Really for Champions

  Written by: Pamela Fung

    Eat breakfast to start up your metabolism and lose weight!  Many people believe that skipping breakfast will lead to weight loss by reducing your fat and calorie intake, but the truth is, while you sleep your metabolism slows down and by eating breakfast you are starting it back up. 

        Now, you may ask, “What does my metabolism have to do with breakfast or losing weight?” When you skip breakfast or any meal, your body goes into (what I like to call) “starvation mode”, your body compensates for the hunger by slowing down your metabolism and conserving calories, so your body can keep itself alive. Not providing your body with enough nutrients and “starving” yourself leads to your body burning your proteins, then carbohydrates, fats and finally your muscles; which could potentially lead to eating disorders such as anorexia.  When your metabolism is “working” (digesting foods, converting what you eat and drink into energy) you are actually LOSING calories!
