Our home is currently still safe and dry from Hurricane Harvey. Thank the Lord. Seriously, I feel so fortunate to still have power and running water. We still expect more, approximately 8-10″, of rain today. Praying for the rain to stop so everyone effected can just begin their road to rebuilding. Yesterday I listed a few ways you can donate and as I am updated on different ways to give I’ll be sure to continue to share those with you. Today Kendra Scott will donate 50% of online purchases to the American Red Cross to support those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Some people may find it silly that I am still continuing to keep my blog posts updated but honestly I am doing everything I can to keep myself busy. Brandon and I are still attending to our full time jobs via email and phone but both offices are currently shut down due to Hurricane Harvey. Apparently my office had received up to 8 feet of water as of yesterday morning. We are doing all we can to keep ourselves occupied until we can leave our house and help our friends and fellow Houstonians in need.
Yesterday I did an at home workout. It was raining so I couldn’t run and I don’t really have equipment at my house so today I am sharing a full body workout that you can do at home with no equipment. You can do one round or if you are feeling strong you can repeat!
I’m pretty excited to be talking about food today and a healthy option at that! If you know me personally, you know that I love my food and I literally need to eat every 2 hours or I become extremely hangry.
Hangry like borderline you probably don’t want to be my friend anymore. 🙂
So, to keep my friendships (and marriage) secure I always pack emergency snacks in my purse. Today I am sharing my favorite nutrition bars as of lately! I also wanted to share a workout I have been partaking in lately and have quickly become obsessed with!
For those of you who know me, already know that I love working out! But even as someone who enjoys working out, I still have my days where I “just don’t wanna” so today I am sharing 4 things I like to do to keep me going and motivated!
Today I am so excited to share my thoughts on my first Citizen Pilates experience with you! I really want to try and share a “Fitness Friday” with you at least once a month. Fitness is such a huge part of my life and I noticed I really don’t talk about it too much on the blog. Actually the last fitness related post I did here I was wearing the same shirt LOL! I promise I have more gym clothes!
*Warning: I am not the cutest person during a workout. 🙂
Happy Friday beauties! I am so happy to be sharing my first of many fitness posts with you all! For those of who know me personally or have started to follow me on Snapchat (roselyn_m) you know that fitness is a huge part of my life! You may also know that I have a love for great food and a major sweet tooth, but that is called balance 🙂
I love the feeling I have after a really intense workout and being fit and healthy makes me feel good about so many other things.
I was gifted these TKO Resistance Bands and they could not have come at a better time. I am currently in New Orleans for work and just because I am out of town doesn’t mean my daily workouts stop.
