Decided to ramp things back up this month with a review o my new favorite place to shop called Brandless! They carry a ton of organic, kosher AND gluten free products ALL FOR $3! You can also qualify for free shipping no matter the size of your order! **THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED REVIEW/HAUL** […]
I am experiencing yet another evolution in my life. Currently deciding on how to reconcile my calling with my faith – figuring out exactly how to follow it while giving respect and homage to the God that I serve. I’ve learned a LOT in the past few years since my awakening. Where I am at […]
We are back from our first real vacation in almost 20 years! It wasn’t without it’s ups and downs – none the less, we had a blast! We spent 3 days in Miami (where we honeymooned 19 years ago) and caught a cruise to Key West + Mexico. This was my second cruise in over […]
Today is our last day at home before leaving on our big trip to Miami, Key West + Mexico! I’m so excited at the food prospects of where we are going. In my mind, I’ll run into someone’s Abuela who will graciously invite us over for a home cooked meal and I will get to […]
I recently made a decision to do my part in bettering my life by eliminating several harmful habits. I decided to call this process ‘The Reset’ because I am literally resetting my life. In the following video, which is a part of my new series called, The Lifestyle with Elle Yo which airs on Youtube, […]
One may think, how in the hell can you be a life and wellness coach with such an unhealthy lifestyle yourself?
Simple. I know what to do and I knew how to tell others to do it, I just was feeling too low about myself to put it into practice in my own life.
I was a walking, talking hypocrite!
Today I am so annoyed with this journey. Nothing seems to be working. I’m sick of being positive with nothing positive happening! 3 weeks and not 1 damn pound. Hot yoga running, weights, roller skating and NOTHING! Do I have to barely eat or something? Why is this weight just sticking to me??? I feel […]
It’s that time again…Xmas: the grand finale of the Gentile year. They claim it’s ‘Peace on earth, goodwill toward men’ but I honestly don’t see it. This seems to be the time of year that people are their most annoyed, depressed, angry, selfish and uncaring. Being out and about during the week, you can tell on […]
I wrote this last month and never got around to sharing it so, here it is! Not a long post at all, just some thoughts I was having. Shalom! So today was a good day… I’m not feeling my best, but that’s alright. I spent this beautiful Sabbath in bed doing bible study most of […]
I love wearing head wraps and scarves, and have been rocking them since college (mid to late 90’s). I’ve been curious about the idea of head coverings being compulsory for a while now. I was pretty sure I had never read about it being mandated at all – but I don’t know everything and have […]
Today is Day One of the inevitable ‘reset’ I’ve been harping on about. 5 months of clean eating and fitness to lose this 30 pounds I’ve been lugging around for the past 6 months or so. What better way to start a weightloss journey than to do it all online? Exactly. That’s why I’ve created […]
It’s that time of year again – and I’m on a diet. Not that I indulge, I actually hate this time of year. Don’t get me started on Xmas… I digress. This diet is the center of my life right now. I’ve been planning my ass off and now I’m ready to start meal planning/prepping. […]
So the other day I bought a scale. It’s been a good two years since I’ve owned one, but since I know I’ve put on way more weight than I had realized, I thought it may be a wise idea. Well my first regret came when we brought it home and I weighed myself. Talk […]
I need to go on a diet. I usually shun the word but, I need to stop and re-assess my eating situation. I’ve been overindulging with eating out. Since our move, I have been cooking at home a LOT more but I need to get my butt on this beach for some running/walking. We’ve been […]
Things have been super hectic lately – and still haven’t slowed down much. Just enough for me to get a quick blog update out. So, we’ve finally made it out of that old, dusty house and made it out to the coast! I thought this day would never come. With this blessing came a lot […]
