Making Your Way Back Into Fitness Less Painful

Photography by: Angel Torres

My fitness journey has been like a roller coaster. I hit an all-time high and then I get sick or I have to travel and that’s the end of that. I think consistency has been an issue for me ever since I can remember, even if I try. But now that I’m about to turn 32 and hopefully start a family soon, I want to break old bad habits and “adult” more.

I don’t work out to lose weight, thankfully I don’t need to. I work out for mental health and as a stress reducer. I took a looooong break from it because I was focusing on some other areas in my life but about 2 weeks ago as I was going to bed I thought to myself “maybe tomorrow I’ll work out” and the thought grew overnight and, in the morning, I was actually pretty excited about it.

Inspired by "The Women I Work With"

I am lucky to be surrounded by amazing women. BAS ASS WOMEN. Women that have showed me how to be tough but professional, to rock presentations and productions while rocking a baby bump and looking amazing while doing it.

But that has not always been the case. We live in a men's world and we all know that but I am so glad to be part of a generation that said "Enough!" and armed themselves to be the change the world desperately needed. Initially I wanted this blog post to be about the amazing sense of fashion that this girl bosses have but as I was writing it, it felt off. It felt like something more important was missing and I was completely reducing them to their sense of fashion. Which, don't get me wrong I do believe that success and a good sense of fashion and self care go hand in hand but it is not the only thing that matters.

This week felt like the longest week ever, didn't it? Im so glad the weekend is here. I have a pretty busy weekend ahead but I always try to think of weekends as the perfect moment to explore and experiment with new outfits.

Creating the Minneapolis Blogger Union

Almost 2 weeks ago I saw I dream I had 5 months ago become a reality. Creating a space for bloggers by bloggers where we could learn, grow and support each other in the Twin Cities.

Last October at the Fashion Week Minneapolis kick-off party I met Samantha from Downtown Blondie, or well she actually rescued me because I was alone in a corner ha! And being the sweet adorable girl she is we talked all night and I told her this crazy idea I had and asked her if she would be interested on helping me build it. Without hesitation she said yes and I knew right there and then that I had a partner in crime.
