This has to be my new favorite accessory. I’m going to be incorporating this split squat variation at least once a week for a month into my programming to help strengthen and fix any imbalances. Unilateral work is so important and also it’s killer for your booty 😉 I feel these working and I enjoy doing them now (used to despise these) before this I did squats and holy shit am I fatigued. They sucked. I was so run down all last week I think I got hit with a virus going around and it sucked the energy out of me. The important thing is not to let a bad session get to your head (cough SAM cough). Strength fluctuates. Take the good with the bad.. work around it and continue to show up that’s the only way to get stronger. 💪
Loss sucks .. period!
Life is short my friends. I had no clue a year ago today would be the last time I physically would hug my mother, joke with her, hug her, tell her I loved her, get annoyed cause she always kissed me in my ear, take my last selfie with her.
Never ... someone told me to journal each day since then. There’s really no need to. Every day has been the same, no worse, no better.
I wake up and immediately want to just crawl back into bed. I feel the loss of her presence from the moment I wake up. Every thing I’ve done in life, I’ve shared with her. Every moment in life is a moment that I just can’t seem to embrace with the same amount of zest I had before. I often feel like I’m just going through to motions.
My second thought is about my Dad and how he must feel. Always putting on a strong face, but deep down I see his pain. I just didn’t know how to make it go away. How did this happen, we just weren’t ready.
This past year has shown me so much. I had no clue how many friends have experienced loss, we become oblivious to others loss. We say we’re sorry for your loss, but they are really just words.
My Mom always said it was hard or lose her mother and how she couldn’t understand how everyone around her just carried on. I never saw my mother grieve, oh what pain she must have been experiencing.
I know we will meet again, I know God loved my mother enough to take her peacefully in her sleep. For that I am eternally grateful.
Thank you to everyone who was there this time a year ago and understand and respected my time away from everyone.
Tomorrow will be a year, a day that has changed my life forever.
I love you to the moon 🌙 Alyce Lavenia and miss you so much.
Love ❤️ always, #FitRoni
يوگا يعنی وقتی كه تمام سلول های بدن با هم، آواز روح را بسرايند... آساناها (حرکات یوگا) انرژی (پرانا) در بدن را به اعتدال رسانده، و همچنین تورم و کاهش انرژی را که در نقاط مختلف بدن عارض شده را از بین برده و آنها را متعادل می کنند .

Just messing around with weight after a 435 lbs single last week and hopefully topping my all time max at 455 lbs next week! .
Here’s 365 lbs for a set of 4 and it felt like I could’ve done 6 but I’m playing it safe!

What do the following women have in common?
Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games), Hermione Granger (Harry Potter), Natasha Ramanova (Black Widow from The Avengers), Rey (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Princess Merida (Disney’s Brave). Well, these women exemplify the courage, strength and fortitude inspired by real world warriors and fighters; women who have boldly faced or are facing unwarranted trials and challenges; extraordinary heroines like yourselves.
Additionally, ancient yogic wisdom also teaches that we, as women, have a particularly magnificent ability to positively influence and shape our lives, bodies and environment. That ability comes through our divine feminine energies known as Shakti and Bhakti.
Shakti and Bhakti are two distinguishable creative powers within every woman that can be defined as:
Shakti refers to the power of the universe that gives women the strength and courage to be fearless and natural agents of change.
Bhakti refers to devotion, selflessness, humility and reverence; it is this power that reminds us to be of service to higher causes and purposes.
In essence, Shakti and Bhakti are the perfect duality of our highest nature: strength and tenderness; courage and humility; influence and devotion. When we become aware of these essences and subtle powers, we can then channel them heal any and all pain and disease. We can also harness their energy to positively influence our bodies, our reality and ourselves.
How can we call upon these innate powers so we can willfully integrate them in our daily living and being? No other more effective method than through Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. Kundalini Bhakti Meditation utilizes a devotional mantra (Adi Shakti Namo Namo ; sacred sound recitation) to invoke the universal feminine creative power and awaken the Shakti and Bhakti powers within us. Through this meditation, you can can begin to immediately connect and intentionally apply these sacred super forces. Meditation helps to dissolve limiting belief thoughts &radiantly charge your entire being to help you face all of life’s challenges (&evil villains )with renewed hope,vigour,strength &courage
