Seva @ Home: Day 1
February 4, 2013

My mom and I are starting our own Seva at home!  Seva means service. In Sikhism, seva refers to selfless service for altruistic purposes on behalf of, and for the betterment of a Community. My mom created a Fundraiser to help her complete a spiritual and life changing event for herself in Colorado.  She decided why not start at home? Here we go!

Wanna join us! No problem it can be done ANYWHERE. Here is the  Shoshoni’s Seva Program, where my mom will be attending.

5:30 AM Meditation
7:00 AM Breakfast ( Vegetarian or Vegan )
7:45 – 12:00 Seva ( work )

Mine will be a tad bit different  since I have my baby girl Stella and I’m still doing my Pooch to 5 k( woot week 2!) So if you have been following me on my jogging journey why not do this too. What I will do first thing in the morning is feed Stella then do my meditation/yoga  with mom. She has a wonderful blog on how she is going to do it and has wonderful suggestions.

Also during our time we will be mostly going vegetarian. If we do have meats it will be either local or organic. So this wil be our Grocery List.

Week 2 Pooch to 5k: Oh the Knee’s!
January 10, 2013

Holy junk! Ok so today is was my day two of week two of the pooch to 5k. Boy oh boy so my knee’s hate me right now. It’s obviously been quite sometime since I last jogged and I also was probably a little bit smaller. So I’m guessing its my weight putting a bunch of pressure on my knee joints. I’m suppose to jog 90 seconds and walk 2 minuets 6 times. Well. I only got to 1 1/2 times lol. It hurt. So, coming back home I looked up ways to help get rid of my pain and heal the knee’s. That’s when I found the R.I.C.E method. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. That is what I am doing until I feel I can get back to jogging without hurting myself again. So during my break I will continue my yoga, do more knee and leg exercises, and going on the inversion table. 

Also, on other pages I saw that you should have some Ibuprofen. I don’t use ibuprofen any more so my mom found a natural pain relief. Tumeric and water!

  • 1-2 tsp. of Turmeric Powder or

  • 1 Oz Juiced Turmeric Root

  • 1 cup coconut water OR

  • Mix into fresh vegetable juice made in your juicer (celery, cucumber, ginger & lemon is a great anti-inflammatory juice to mix your turmeric into)

It’s not so tasty but it gets the job done!

Everyone enjoy your day! And if you are doing the Pooch to 5k with me don’t stop keep going I’ll catch up with you guys 🙂

 

Here’s my Mom’s page.

Whoa!: Week 1 Pooch to 5k
December 30, 2012

Hello there! Well, as you know I haven’t posted since, hmm lets see… JULY! Holy moly. Well, first thing is first.  Stella has been born! She’s now four months. Yeah its been a long time!

So, now since she’s four months I think its about that time to start my Pooch to 5k. I coulda started some time ago but I’m starting now.  I’ve been doing a jog/walk thing for two day’sish but today is my official start of the first week. This has been my routine: wake up, feed baby, put her back to sleep, jump on the mini trampoline for 5 minuets, go on the inversion table for 5 minuets, do some yoga for 10 minuets, then take my dog out and go jogging. Golly I love it! I have missed jogging so much! I had a dream about 4 nights ago just jogging everywhere and it felt so good. So, I put my foot down and said  ” That’s it! Time to start jogging.”

1st week

1st week

I will be doing this for everyday of the week not 3 days like this says. My “mentality laziness”  would just be very happy with taking 4 days off as a ” oh just don’t do this any more.” So 7 days it is! I have been also taking a Pro energy drink during my “in the house” work outs. Then as soon as getting back from jogging I have my shake. This morning I had a Cherry Banana Shake. Very, Very yummy! Wanna join me in my Pooch to 5k  weight loss journey? Click those words and get started. 🙂 Oh by the way you don’t have to have a dog to start the Pooch to 5k so that excuse is outta your way. 2013 bring it.

Not only is my reason to just to lose weight, be healthy and get my doggie happier. I’m also getting ready for this summer at a little convention I go to. I am so ready to be at my best  and look my best. My sexy little self is ready to shed off this fat suit.

And this is my baby girl!Stella<3

And this is my baby girl!

So Slow.
June 28, 2012

After this crazy week of Tropical storm Debby I have been lazy and getting more tired from this lil’ one Stella. I did have a lot of fun during the storm. Literally had water front property for bout half a day. The street right next to us was filled up so much that we did’t even get to the deep end of it. Yes, we went into the water with who know’s what was in that, maybe alligators, but we had a blast. Dogs got to go swimming once everyone saw our dogs they got theirs out. It was like a little neighborhood block party.

A video my mom took!

Other then the storm I have been bad and haven’t done my walking since then. It is now beautiful outside and I will go for my walk today Addisson will be pretty excited about it :).

Oh Rain.
June 24, 2012

Rain rain rain. It has been like this all week! I’m loving the rain for bringing in nice cool breeze at night. But boy all the gloomyness is makin’ me a wee bit tired. I  have been keeping up with my yoga though! Walking, eh not so much I only did a half walk yesterday but it did feel really nice. Today, I’m hoping it slows down on the rain so I can go for my walk.  Hm, I would love to have a rain jacket! For me and my dog! How cute would that be. Then I could say Ha Ha to the rain and go 🙂 Oh another thing I’m really lovin’ about the rain is that my garden is SO freaking happy. Its all lushes and green, some flowers are starting to pop up. Ugh, I love it.

The front yard !

This would be a great lil’ jacket for my dog!

Everyone have a fantastic day!

The Weekend Adventure, Into a New Challenge.
June 19, 2012

This weekend I was away in Tampa. My oh my was it beautiful there! I went to MetroCon. Its an event where you get dressed up in crazy outfits meet a bunch of people and have a lil’ fun.  I did not do any exercise intentionally but I sure as hell did a lot of walking. From the hotel, to the convention center, up and down stairs, around the convention center. I did this from Friday to Sunday ALL day. So I don’t know how many miles that would have been or what. But boy was I exhausted. I just got back home yesterday morning. I didn’t really do anything yesterday but just relax. I was still pooped out from the fun running around all weekend. Since, I had a ”day off” I woke up this morning feeling fresh and relaxed. First thing I did was have water and did 30 minuets of yoga! Now I am writing this blog drinking  more water then off to go for a walk with my dog. Today is going to be very productive.

My friend and I over the weekend!

Since my new challenge is ready to start I am going to do something new. My mom got inspired and thought of a way to make this Challenge more different for the body and mind. We are going to incorporate total self awareness into this challenge.

Awesome Quote 🙂

  1. I am going to write everything down that I do through out the day. Including my exercises, food intake, time spent on internet/video games, pretty much my time spent doing anything at all times. It will be written down.
  2. I will also write down the emotions I have during the day to each action.
  3. I will take note of EVERYTHING that makes me happy!
  4. I will list the 5 best things that happened to me during the day.

I am very excited to get started! This is going to be such an awesome adventure!

Make sure you go to take a look at my Mom’s blog and read about her challenge!
