Today we begin Week ✌🏼of the December Workout/Yoga Calendar! Are you following along? Comment below if you are! And sign up for the month-long challenge right now if you haven’t yet!!! (Link in bio and below). A new workout/yoga video everyday to strengthen, stretch, and sweat our way to the new year!! 🎉💪🏼💦🤗🧘🏼♀️🙏🏼 #tistheseasontogetstretchy .
Today i have an extra challenge for you!! And it’s 3 yoga and gymnastics inspired drills that strengthen your DEEPEST core muscles so you can lift your own body weight, improve athletic performance, sculpt and tone your waist, strengthen your hips, improve posture, and alleviate pain that’s caused from a lack of strength. Do these moves today and notice an immediate difference in standing upright and feeling strong 💪🏼.
✅ Directions — do 2 rounds of these exercises, or 3 if you’re advanced.
1️⃣ LOLASANA: place hands underneath your shoulders, and tuck knees under shoulders, with heels under hips. Press Intl hands and pull belly button to spine as you inhale, and then exhale pull knees up to chest using your core.
2️⃣ STRADDLE LIFTS: Sit upright with legs in straddle, place hands inside legs, and press hands into floor as you inhale and then exhale lift one leg up, keeping spine long as you can. If you’re more advanced Try for both legs!!
3️⃣ DOUBLE LEG LIFT: Bring legs together, ankles squeezing together, and place hands on the outside of your thighs. Sit upright, pull belly button into spine, and place your hands onto the floor as you inhale, then exhale lift both feet off the floor using your lowest core muscles. Slowly and intentionally lower legs to the floor.

As you step out into this super juicy holiday season, ripe with steals and deals, ask yourself why you are making the purchase, is it because:
Category A *You will love it longtime *You will use it *It is an investment you can $ *It is an heirloom
Category B (These are some of my all-time classic reasons, btw): *It’s a super great deal, and you simply can’t pass up a good deal! SUCH a THRILL!!!
*It’s there, and you can. *You are really good at buying things. It’s a talent. *The holidays are lonely.
*It’s something to do. *Grief. *Everyone else has x or y, you deserve z. *Life can suck, pretty baubles make it better.
For a while, I found myself making many, many purchases because of MANY of the reasons in category B. But, I didn’t know that’s what I was doing. I couldn’t see it. To add fuel to the fire, I used to work in fashion, and I would get access to garbage bags FULL of clothes and accessories for next to nothing. But just because I could take home tons of stuff, doesn’t mean I needed to, but... I did. 😳 Somewhere, deep down, I didn’t think I was enough on my own. Those pretty things filled a void and served as a shield from disappointment. Without one pintuck pleat, bauble, or sequin, I now know I’m enough. And so are you! Your $, your time, and your energy are assets - and you are a far bigger investment than anything you could ever buy. Do I still find myself falling into category B? Sometimes, yes! But I catch myself way sooner, and I have goals that I am shooting for that help me stay on track! 📸by @mustlovedadjokes#getunstuck#inspiration#motivation#tulummexico#travel#tourist#wanderlusters#wanderlust#mexico#infinitepossibilities#thereformation#hats#hat#retailtherapy#reformation#holidayshopping#morningcoffee#travelmexico#tulum
The world has so many amazing place to experience. I want to pack my things and go to every single one of them. Anyone want to join me?
Its a sad reality that on Instagram, there are people that try and cheat the system by buying fake followers and even fake engagement (likes/comments) to try and get ahead. Every industry will always have people who will try and game the system.
Some of them even start out thinking that what they are doing is okay. But the truth is, it hurts authentic content creators that work hard to take that perfect photo and get recognition. Not only does it create unfair competition, but more importantly, it waters down and devalues the reputation and authenticity of the travel influencer community as a whole.
How do you tell if someone is buying their way to the top? - Low engagement (likes + comments divided by the number of followers)
- Comments are generic and inauthentic (for example, “cool pic! 😍”)
- Participating in lots of giveaways (these cost money for influencers to take part in, in exchange they get many followers)
- Big spikes in follower count. Organic growth is steady.
I don’t believe in public shaming because I think it does more harm than good. But be aware that it happens and don’t believe everything you see on the internet 😊

She has stamped her preferences on chaos
She has chiseled her home in the shape of a falcon’s wings
She has lifted the veil of inhibition
She has danced across the earth until it sings
And with only the sky as her witness
She’s captured the wonder of a thousand Springs
With lissome intensity
Leaving no stone unturned, no cavern untraversed
She smiles at the sun, breathes in the ocean
And stands on the ceiling of her tallest dreams.
