Aware of Subtle Energies  + Cleansing Strategies 
It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update or fitness motivation! August has been busy so far! It’s back to school (yeah!) And things are moving fast! I awakened at 1 am this morning with a knocking I thought I was late getting my daughter up at 4:30 – 5am only to find I had been ‘dreaming’  that woke me up? Immediately after my dog started having ear fits and I felt helpless watching him in a kind of agony. Naw, I went into Sage mode cleansing corners, blessing and casting out lower vibration energies with salt water. It must be the Creole Native Indigenous in me! I was like a Lioness and right back up at 4:45 am to wake up my daughter and then walk her under the predawn Moon and Stars! It was gorgeous out there in the cool breeze! Just magical!

I’m still in the Vegetarian Vegan zone although I’m tired of tofu right about now lol and ready to explore other power packed high protein vegetarian meals for athletes and workout enthusiasts! I’ve been keeping a beautiful Fitness and Nutrition journal including detailed notes on moods, behaviors and ‘details’ of my journey but it hasn’t been longer than 30 days as of yet so I’m steadily trekking along and building. I’d like to finish my year with this Journal consecutive and consistent!

Significant Changes:  Menses Flow and Energy Balance
During my menses I’m usually side tracked and thrown off balance with my fitness but so far I’m on task, consistent and feeling pretty good accept for the first 2 days I felt really weak! Being Vegetarian has its advantages my flow is less heavy and I’m much more sensitive to subtle energies and bullshitters I can see, feel and sense them a mile away no matter who it is or what form it comes. I immediately transform into my Warrior Goddess ready to protect AND strike blows!  Full Kali Sekhmet mode 😉 so beware! (not speaking to the righteous of heart and good willed) lol For the ‘others’ I know you know i know who you are! 😉 Stay in your lane, I see you!

Fitness Coaching Consideration: Assessing my Goals Finding my Formula 
One of my fitness group coaches has asked me if I considered being a Beach Body Coach myself (wide-eyed expression), he keeps calling me out as a “role model” and “disciplined” in the group. I have noticed that my consistent double-workouts (often triple workouts) and strict nutrition plan (action) has placed an impression and increased daily workouts and detailed nutrition comments among the female members. For myself,  I’m a bit disappointed, however that I am not always in keeping at my 1200 Caloric Goal even with the increased workouts! Although, Im actually in my Daily Caloric Target Range I feel  I would have faster results being MORE disciplined in this area!!!  I found that when I worked out more if I didn’t eat more I felt weaker and less productive during my sets!  Therefore, I’m using my Fitness and Nutrition Journal to assess what I’ve been doing right, wrong and make improvements for better results. I’m open to see where higher vibrations take me on this journey!

This learning curve is pretty fun to learn and explore! 🙂

seeing small gains keeps me motivated to stay on task

Seeing small gains keeps me motivated to stay on task– on my Nutrition and Fitness Plan! 

For the most part, I like to inspire and raise the bar if I can,
whenever I can,whatever form that shows up!
That’s just part of why I’m here on this planet right now!

That’s just part of why I’m on this planet right now! (And its a “blissing” – so much appreciation, love and fortitude!) When you don’t see me on facebook or blogging I’m in deep internal meditation and contemplation. I do things but may not post or feel the need to constantly post my actions, thoughts, whereabouts, lol. Say in 2008 – 2010 I was a social media addict but this cycle of my life I praise “doing more and talking less.”  I realize I’m so much like the Moon with its ever changing cycles,  I fully accept myself. As much as I am in front of and exposing my self Sun Kissed in the same breath or rather exhale I’m seeking solitude in Nature to be still, hidden and deeply within. Perhaps this comes across as aloof or distant to those seeing me from outside or with little understanding to this way of being. I learned to see it as Natural as the Sun Moon interrelationship and cosmic dance. My balance of Sacred Masculine and Divine Feminine within the Self finds centeredness in this process of being.

Openness and Candor: Maat is my ONLY way (444)!
I’m also probably the ONLY woman in the fitness group to openly talk about and factor in the Menses part of fitness that women experience. Forget about whether its taboo or politically correct more importantly is it exactly what I’m feeling and experiencing right now so why should I feel ANY embarrassment, hesitation, or social restriction from expressing my attitude, feelings or assessments based upon this physiological biological chemistry within my body?  I dont! So I honestly express and factor this into my comments and discussions (period). (pun intended) guess that’s the open honest frank Sagittarius in me! 😉
