DAY 7 of #yogagirlchallenge is all about saying Thank You and showing gratitude. 

I’m grateful for so many things but the most important is exactly that…having the mindset and awareness to be grateful and express gratitude every single day. Sometimes we forget and don’t practice gratitude as we should. So I’m grateful for the new lens yoga has given me and the ability to remind myself of all that is truly important. 

I’m grateful for my family, my best friends, genuine people and the little things that make my day. I’m blessed to have a body that moves for me and a heart that beats. I’m thankful for my breath, my awareness, my unconsciousness and everything in between. I’m grateful for mother nature and the mystery, wonder and beauty of Earth.

I’m grateful for today’s slow and steady 90 minute yoga session and 20 minutes of meditation that cleanse and restore me body and soul. It is always exactly what I need.

And last but not least I’m thankful for this cute + cuddly yoga buddy of mine I get to squeeze and love every single day who gives me endless love & comfort right back in his own way :)

DAY 6 of #yogagirlchallenge is Start a New Habit ☆ 

There are a few new habits I want to start as I mentioned some from yesterday’s theme of “breaking a bad habit”. New habits I’m practicing are getting to bed before midnight (not quite made it tonight…but I better reason than being up for nothing particular), I want to make hour to 90 mins of yoga and 15 min meditation session like I did today a daily habit that I aim for. Also like I said..stop procrastinating and be more organized by sticking to my journal/planner as soon as it arrives :)

Other little routines I want to create into daily habits are drinking lemon water daily anddd getting some leisurely reading in every.single.day !

Life long good #habits - be grateful! & choose happiness,  always♡ 

:)goodnight everyone xo

& thank you @yoga_girl for this amazing 21 day challenge!

DAY 5 #yogagirlchallenge is Break a Bad Habit !

This is tough to just pick one. I could easily name five i’m always “trying” to work on :P

I’m gonna say something along the lines of quit procrastinating… which is so incredibly hard not to do. We’ve all been there. But I feel under this I can put mini bad habits I need to quit that will also transition into tomorrows Day 6 Make a New Habit! So for right now my bad habit  to quit is procrastinating which comes in various forms such as staying up too late likeee 4:15 am last night for noo good reason (goal is bed before midnight) and not staying organized with a planner like I always say I will (I ordered a spankin new planner/journal I’m determined to stick with!) 

I love to put things off till the last possible minute and cause more stress for future me than necessary. So doing things right away if they can be done is my #goal. And I think staying organized and developing a solid routine will help immensely. 

This is gonna be hard but #habits cannnn be broken just like they can be started. Just takes time and #practice and consistency. I love this challenge and @yoga_girl is my number one inspiration!♥ :)

Experimented with this mornings green smoothie by making my version of the delicious mighty mint smoothie I had at Tao Natural Foods Cafe in Minneapolis. 

Basically a protein green smoothie with mint! It was quite tasty and great for anyone who wants to drown out the green taste with some PB and mint. Next time…definitely could add more mint!

MINTY PROTEIN SHAKE ●

》 kale, banana, green apple, peanut butter, ginger, mint leaves, chia seeds, half almond milk and half water.

DAY 4 of #yogagirlchallenge is today and the theme is RISE&SHINE :)

I did get up earlier today but not as early as I should be getting up since past two weeks I’ve been staying up way later than my normal and so getting up way later than I like :P

However,  when I do get up early as I will continue to try this entire 21 day challenge, I like to start by taking my time getting out of bed and stretching out with some bed yoga. Especially my back! Keeping it gentle and connecting to my breath off the bat feels amazing. Then after bed cuddles with my dog (who is most likely right there taking up the entire bed) we make our way to the kitchen to make my morning glowing green smoothie! 

Getting up earlier means not having to rush and getting to enjoy the sunrise outside on my mat while sipping on smoothie and breathing in the good air.

Post smoothie is morning yoga session with great yoga jamz & then it’s time to change and start my day! ♥

As I’m searching for the perfect Korean made journal/planner (because no one loves stationary like the Koreans) I decided to whip out and dust off my first notebook journals I kept at 15 and ohhhh boy what a good laughh & total treasure! (to never show anybody everrr).

 I’ll forever be a quote hoarder w/ @midorigrl + can’t wait for my new journal to arrive! 

Here’s to things that keep you sane and collected ♡

So I absolutely love #Starbucks green tea #chai #lattes and nowww that I have #Matcha #tea powder I can make my own iced lattes…without spending a fortune at Starbucks.

how to 》
1. Sift 1 tsp matcha powder into glass and add about 3/4 cup boiling water
2. Add in your sweetener (honey isn’t vegan so I do maple syrup or agave)
3. Whisk it all with a electric milk frother or I use my Aroma hot frother x-press
4. In another glass or mason jar mix your ice and milk of choice (leave room for matcha mixture)
5. Pour matcha mixture into your iced milk and give it good stir
6. Sift little more matcha on top and stir - you can sprinkle cinnamon or nutmeg on top or add whipped cream! ♡enjoyy
