Easy as 1,2,3

You’ll see in my blog I’m all about natural solutions to life and the chaos it can bring. With Chalk Couture the creative outlet doesn’t take much. It’s the movement and the time to just release and not overthink. 

Be sure to check out my page and see just how fun and Releasing it can be.  

Mr. Monkey Brain meet my friends

Taking a moment of quiet seems to be quite the challenge in today’s world. I am certainly guilty of losing many needed moments. But how can we take the moment of silence. That moment of reflection and release?

The answer is personal for all of us. My main distraction is my over active monkey brain. You know that mind that has the shopping list of chores for the day. 

Make the kids lunches 

Wait is the cat litter emptied 

Oh wait I forgot to check that post 

What did I have going on tomorrow?

Is there enough gas in the car? 

The list goes on and on. Sometimes I don’t accomplish one thing. Because I forget from something other lingering thought replacing it.

Essential oils have changed my life. Sometimes we need something to quiet that monkey brain.

Or calm the nerves in that crazy traffic.

Maybe we just need a happy moment to forget the insane day we had or even a challenging moment. There is an essential oil for every need. I’ve been told the thought of them becomes overwhelming and intimidating.

The truth is it’s all about education. Or finding the right outlet, or community to bring that knowledge to you with ease. Before essential oils, my family and I had many issues that we used OTC at times to solve. Which, in the long run, created more problems.

If you’re looking for some relief in life. Let’s find a solution, not a band-aid. The best part you find a natural solution that feeds the mind and body. Let’s at least stop pollution in our own home first. 

Baby steps to success! My favorite saying 

So Easy for you, Say What? 😳

Working out is so easy for you. You’re so fit and you teach for a living. These are some of the comments I get when I inquire about why others don’t find their fun in fitness.

Let me drop some reality. I am not a naturally fit person. When I was going through my separation, now divorce. A svelt, sexy body became my purpose. I mean let’s face it who’s going to want a single mom of a toddler, at the time. But who can say no to a hot and toned mom. This was my mindset when I first decided to take “losing weight” to a obsessive level

Before this realization and complete focus of fight or flight, I had serious weight issues. Especially for my 5’5 frame I wasn’t healthy. I was in a pretty bad relationship in my twenties and I used food to remedy that confusion and “why me” mindset. But that’s another blog post for the future.

I have the hardest time working out. Some days it’s really easy and other days I self-defeating. If you don’t believe me come on over to Torisandra Fit . There you’ll see my always up and down yo-yoy weight loss and weight gain.

Seriously Cass where are we going with this. Well, let me get to it. Even though I fall I never stay down. I may go missing for a few months. But they never have to send out the search party.

If you can take anything away from this. Take this, it’s work. A kind of work that pays you in a way that is priceless. The hardest part of weight loss, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, are you ready for it?? It’s all MINDSET. That’s truly the defeat that is causing such obesity in our society.

If we all decided to take each day to turn one negative into a positive, that’s food for the soul and self-esteems.

Here is an amazing challenge

Day 1-30

  1. negative into a positive

  2. 2 negatives into a positives

  3. 3 negatives into a positives

  4. 4 negatives into a positives

You get the gist. The hope is by the time you get to 30 days negative thoughts will be less and positivity will be more. Once the love of yourself is achieved then the love of your health and wellness is just another envisioning and action away.

My saving grace.

Find your motivation. if you would like a supportive, and motivating team I would love to chat with you further. Come on over and LEARN MORE

What gets a smile on your face?

What makes you start dancing around?

Even if it means starting with something simple and out of your daily routine, that’s more than yesterday. Make the goal to do more.

Move more, love yourself more, and know and truly believe you deserve more.

Don't give a Flip

The battle of the good and bad of social media. This shot was taken back in 2016 I copied the Instagram caption. I remember this day like it was yesterday. I was so worried to post it.

The poetry of the movement. The awe that my little girl took the pic. Days before I could even afford the apple watch I wear today. That usually take the pics I take today.

My inner argument before posting.

  • It's too sexy

  • It's too inappropriate

  • Too much skin

  • People will think I'm arrogant

The list goes on and on. Now, after all of my personal growth and education, I could care flipping less. I say take the pic. Be proud! This was work and I was proud. Especially when my daughter said I looked so pretty.

Love You and all the fearless steps you take each day. With each step they get easier. Soon you won't give a flip.

My original caption:

My life is in such a different place! Thanks to #Piyo and the #healthylife and #cleanliving choices I decided to take and embrace as my little girl begged to be my photographer.

So proud my three year old she took the pic!
