Making Fitness a Part of Your Lifestyle!!

"You will never have the ass you want by sitting on the ass you have." Harsh, but true statement. The reality in life is that you will only aggressively persue that which you truly want. Bottom line is how bad do you want it??

In a society where everything is so fast paced and time seems more limited than ever it is very easy to make excuses about why you live the way you do, why you eat the way you do and why you refuse to make fitness a goal and priority in your life. "Well I don't have enough time." "I'm too tired." "I don't know how to cook healthy." Do these words sound familiar to you? If they do, I encourage you to make a conscious effort to immediately STOP making excuses and make yourself and your health a priority. The benefits of leading a healthy and fit lifestyle, not diet or phase, but LIFESTYLE, are not only cosmetic, but you will reap rewards in your health and mind as well. Your attitude on life improves, your self esteem increases, you will live longer! Aside from feeling and looking great you have all these added bonuses that money cannot buy. Money cannot buy health or self esteem. You have to make yourself a priority period. There are are 24 hours in each day, and if you can take one hour out 3-4 times a week to get your ass to the gym or go somewhere you can get your sweat on you will be on your way to a whole new you...a better you!

Here are some tips on how to get motivated:

1. Get Started. Get the ball rolling! The hardest part is getting started, but just dive in! Find a gym, park, class or some kind of outlet for you to begin working out. Start on Monday if you must, but really any day, like today, is the perfect time to begin.

2. Plan in Advance. Setting a schedule for the week is a fool proof way to balance your time. Making time is so important for this goal. Be consistent! Find what works for you. Typically, early day workouts prove more beneficial, but get it in whenever you can.

3. Set a Goal! Whether its losing 15 lbs or 50 lbs be sure to set a goal. I try not to pay too much attention to what the scale says, but you most definitely need to be at a healthy weight. Figure out what weight is healthy for your size and make a daily effort to move towards that goal weight.

4. Eat Healthy.  Diets are only temporary fixes. 80% of the results you get when on this fitness mission will be from what you are feeding yourself. Incorporate plenty of leans meats, fruit, veggies and whole grains into you diet. Drink LOTS of water.

5. Stay Focused. No matter where you are at physically, you can do this!  The important thing is that you have made the decision to begin and change your life for the better. I am not telling you that this is going to be easy, but it will be worth it. You are worth it! Just stay focused! If you slip up, no biggie, pick up where you left off and get back on track!

Giving up is simply not an option so GET ON YOUR WAY!!

Love and happiness,

A night out with Marissa Lopez Wong - Mario Lopez sister

A couple of weeks ago, Mario Lopez was set to make an appearance at Lumen Lounge and due to things beyond our control he could not make it. However after speaking to him, he asked me to host his sister and brother in law and I gladly did. Marissa Lopez Wong is an author as well as sister to top Latin TV Host Mario Lopez and Kailee Wong is a retired NFL player. They live in Houston with their children and after a good dinner they celebrated the night away at Lumen. 
Waiting on when Mario will remake his appearance, hopefully it will be soon!

Better Together (sponsored post)

With my hubby and little man in the house things can get hectic. We all have packed schedules that require us to be on the go all day. That’s why I love using Caress Daily Silk Body wash Value Pack and my boys are smelling great with Axe Black from Sam’s Club. They are quick, easy to travel with, and smell great.

But best of all, Sam’s Club carries them! So, I can grab them while I am stocking the house up, and we have enough for both my guys!
Preparing for the day, freshening up mid-day, or getting ready for a night out, a quick blast of confidence from Axe is what my boys need.
But with Axe Black and Caress, my entire family is #BetterTogetherSC!

And Caress is for me, it gives me just what I need to start my day feeling fresh and lovely. I also love the reassurance that I smell great through out the day. 
And after a long day it is the perfect way to relax. 
And Sam’s makes it so easy to pick it up and go with their new app. Scan and Go! It makes my shopping trips so much quicker a…

Meeting with Romeo Santos...So Nasty

I love music and as most of us do, we also have our favorites. I was fortunate enough to meet one of my favorite musicians, Romeo Santos of the mega latin group Aventura while he was in Houston promoting his dvd release for "The King Stays King" a concert dvd from where he  sold out at Madison Square Garden for about 3 nights consecutively. He's like the male version of J.Lo, that hard to get close to. 

There must have been over 2k people in line waiting to get an autograph, catch a glimpse, a smile, and if lucky a hug from this latino heartthrob.... luckily I didn't have to wait in a line. I got a smile, a hug and we spoke and laughed about some of his previous work and very first cd. I was waiting on him while he met other fans for a private meet and greet the radio hosted and honestly I don't know how he does it...I was laughing the whole time, at the requests some of the fans were making, than at the replies the management would give. His management took car…
