Monday Motivation

After two weeks off from blogging I managed to get myself centered and refocused.

This weekend I spent some time with my sister and my boyfriend. We got the chance to go to the Huntington Library and have a picnic. Since I had never been there before I completely underestimated how massive the gardens are. We got there around two in the afternoon and left at 4:30. You would think that with two hours we would be able to see the whole park…wrong.

The heat in Pasadena was so bad that it completely slowed us down and made us have to stop for water a couple of times. The gardens we were able to see were the Lotus, Jungle and Japanese Garden. But before they kicked us out we were able to catch a glimpse of the Chinese Garden. It was so breathe taking that we decided that we had to come back and see the rest.

With this new month starting I want to take a new approach to my goals this month. Today I will just share with you a quote that has not only inspired my week but my month.


I wish you all a happy and stress free Monday.

Lots of Love,


Monday Motivation

This week is going to be different. I have been under a lot of stress due to something going on in my life. I won’t be posting at all this week. I need to gather my thoughts and focus on this problem. As of now it will just be this week, hopefully this can get settled within a week.

I will keep you updated next Monday on what will happen. Thank you for understanding.

This quote will definitely be my reminder this whole week.

Motivational Monday

Good Morning!

I hope coming back to work on Monday wasn’t too hard. For me this weekend was pretty exciting!

I got invited to attend my boyfriends cousins wedding. So you know what that meant…SHOPPING!

One of my favorite things to do is gift shop. Especially when it comes to gift bags, tissue and wrapping paper. So of course I went to my favorite store (Target) to get them.

The ceremony was so relaxing, I had to take a moment to enjoy it. Since I am Hispanic weddings for us are big and loud. But this one was so intimate and peaceful.

She had her ceremony at the beach and picked the best view.  She wasn’t very traditional which I really liked. I loved that she didn’t care that someone was late or that her husband saw her in her dress. All you left with was the love they truly have for each other.

I loved meeting more of my boyfriends family and catching up with them. But what blew the night away was meeting one of my favorite brands owner. She was just as sweet and lovely as I thought she would be.

So I thought that today’s quote should reflect what people aren’t told often. I found this quote from Free People and thought it captured exactly what I wanted to say.

Suddenly you just know it's time to start something new & trust the magic of new beginnings.:

Hope you have a happy Monday.




Motivational Monday

Good Morning my beautiful reader!

Happy memorial day! I hope all you are enjoying your day off, sadly I am working today. But I didn’t let that spoil my day. Today I was so happy to start off the day this morning. I got to sleep in, have breakfast (thanks to my bf), get gas and got to work early! It was a miracle that all these things got done without me rushing. I loved that getting to work was so easy and that there was zero traffic.

So I want to keep the wheel of positivity going with a nice quote to get us through the rest of the week. I am finishing up my last packet of protein shake so I will be posting my reviews on Wednesday. I can’t wait to share with you which one is my favorite and what kind of workouts I’m doing.

sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory:

Remember to enjoy every moment and seek out the good in everything.

This morning I was so proud of myself. I woke up early got ready and left the house by 8:15.

I forced myself to do this because I always feel like I never have enough time in the morning. But I was so shocked that I left earlier than usual and somehow I also feel extremely energized.

I see this being a new routine for myself and I hope I continue to stay strong with this healthy habit.

May your Monday be anything but mundane.

Motivational Tuesday

If there is one thing that I learned from Ronda Rousey is not to be a “do nothing b****.”

When things get unbearable and I feel like quitting on life I remember this video. Every time I watch it or even remember it, it checks me back into my reality. All my goals, dreams and desires can’t be accomplish if I just sit back and wait for it to happen.

I know a lot of people (including myself), who feel out of control all the time. After hearing what she represents and how she was raised; made me what to be in the same mindset.

Training MMA disciplines you in so many ways. It forces you to fight and train like a beast. To not mess up and keep your focus because once you let your guard down BOOM your already on the floor.

I love that these woman are representing that in their own way. That they are some bad b******.
