Bliss

I had a hard few days with the stress of moving and all. The moving went well and we are now settling into the place for the next couple of months.

Also a few things relationship wise between the boyfriend became up as a stresser.but we have since worked through it. Its not issues with him it’s more of outside stuff effecting our relationship. But I know that he is the most amazing guy I have been with so far and to me he’s worth it.

My lady and I have been able to bond and connect on a whole different level. Spending more time together and shifting our energy into a positive outlet has been very helpful for us. Allowing our relationship to grow deeper together.

And I’m finally feeling settled in what I want in my life. I know how to make it all happened now I just need the time to make it all happen.

I love you all

So I made it to NJ ,hrs after I was suppose to due to rain and traffic on tuesday night. My mom came to pick me up and to whole foods we went YUM.

Wednesday morning I a woke myself up bright an early at 630 am eastern time my mother walked past me in a headstand lol I had to get up early to get my nervousness away during yoga. Showered and dressed at 830 am at my interview by 9:00am but didn’t walk in till 9:15 due to my mom saying I would look too desperate lol

It was the most amazing  interview I have ever been to. It was the assistant manager who did a group interview with 2 other girls other than myself. We sat on the floor kicked off our shoes. Just talked for 2hours. Hell afterwards i wanted us all to get hired. She the AM said she had never been in such a interview that was so positive with strong woman. And she respected and loved us all.  I hugged everyone after the interview.  They have a few positions they need to hire for. So we are supposed to get second interviews emails by next Friday.  So i will be picturing myself in this position until I get the second interview.  I was made to work for this company. I hope she realizes that as well.

After amazing lunch my mother and I took a nap like the good old days.

Next day I hit my first goals.

This was my Facebook status:
” Day 8 #100happydays is officially hitting my first goal mountain.  In November I told Billy Yogi this was to be my goals for his transformation documentary. I knew I had along way to go. Since that moment I have followed this through to the very end with my baby Latoya at my side driving me. Today I hit 174.6. My bmi is 30.9 and my waist is 36 inches. I can not believe the progress I have made with the love of billy and Sarah Padma Dharmata. Today I’m happy because I made my first goal of being a happier and healthier me. Thank you all so much for being apart of journey with me and now to make new 6 months goals. I promise those are happy tears”

Nothing is better than making your goals in 6 months.

This was on the Mariposayogi facebook page:
“First 6 month goal completed total loss 77.4lbs, 12inches, BMI went down 13.7, doing my 200ryt teacher training, in school for my personal trainer certification and moving to NJ in 21 days. I look forward to everything that the next 6 months goals give me”

I also created my next year’s goals:

I’m ready to continue this journey.  This is only the beginning for me. Getting to a healthier BMI for my height and age has always been my main goal. My life goal will be dedicated to helping others who are on journey’s like mine. Inspiring and supporting them like what I was able to get.

I love you all very much💚💛💜 my readers.

I’m on my way home and can’t wait to see my little family and spend this last 20 days with my TN family.

Till we meet again…

Traveling

image

So first this trip has been particularly hard on me due to me not taking it with my family.  I have never traveled without my kids. But they are still in school so it only made sense to leave them them with there other mom since we are moving in only 24 short days.

Secondly I decided mostly because of financial reasons to take the bus which of course prolongs the trip which would be only a few short hours by plane or train (though it not an option train wise in TN due to there not being any trains here). For some reason it was hard for me to tell anyone I was taking the bus due to the faces I would get making that decision.  They all assumed I was flying in and i didnt tell them otherwise. But regardless because we are making this big move in a few short weeks this was the best way to do it.

Third I would be doing this trip as a paleo yogi. Which means everywhere we stop for food would not be paleo. Case and point it’s 3:40 am and we have stopped in Virginia for 45 mins for our breakfast at… McDonald’s 😱. Considering I’m allergic to soy and  vegetable oil is made from soy bean oil I can not eat here at all and the only a person not only with an allergy could eat healthy is oatmeal here but it is a grain and I can not eat grains on paleo. There for 21hrs of a trip of places I can not eat is  wearing on me alittle.  I do have things I packed such as apple chips, tuna, apple sauces and coconut water to get me through this. I’m sure this will at least help me not gain since I’m not able to work out till I get to NJ.

Fourth I’m a active yogi.  I feel restricted in this little moving box with wheels. I want to do yoga,  run, weight train hell even spin class right now then sitting down.

Fifth and I think this is the most important is that due to the many stops on this trip I have only been able to sleep 2hrs so far. Not that I sleep well on a normal basis because I do not this only worsen this . I’m sure I will sleep longer than I have in many months once I get to my mother’s house.

And the only thing that is driving me is that I want this job, I need this job no they need me. I can say a million reasons why I can be amazing for this position and believe me I will to them. But this would certainly be one of them how many people would travel 21hrs for this interview knowing they would barely eat the whole time and sleep? Not many at all I’m sure. I know that of I’m meant to have this job the universe will just let it be. And I will out shine the rest.

Till next time…

Date of move is in place and a job in the future :)

So my official last day in TN is 23rd. So much of a wave of sadness and excited  fills me. New places, new people, more yoga the possibilities are endless. I will miss my TN family as well. It overwhelms me how much I will miss our people here.

I also got called for a management position in NJ. The interview in next thursday so I’m taking a bus back to nj for it. It’s an amazing position so I’m taking a chance on my future by going up there for the interview.  I’m praying to get the job.

Anyway alot to do and not alot of time to do it. Lots of you guys.

Till next time

Moving

So it has been a very busy 2 weeks.  2 weeks ago I went on a yoga retreat with my teacher training crew

As you can see I had an amazing yoga time out in the woods camping. This weekend I announced to my guru’s that I was moving back to NJ in the summer. Flipped my training so I can focus on the teaching now and the book work when I live so that I can still get my 200ryt.

Mean while I gave notice at work, started the stuff you need to do when you move.

Just trying to get as many classes in at this point and get ready for this new part of our lives.

I’m about to take a hard core so I will write again soon.

Till next time….
