What an amazing and beautiful summer it has been here in Chicago! My absolute favorite season of the year! Summer is known as the “fitness season”, the time to shed your winter lbs and get ready for that teeny bikini!
With that said, it’s very easy to get caught up in work and fall into a bad eating/workout routine once it starts cooling off.
Here’s a solution to help maintain that summer bod 🙂 TEAMI!
As I have mentioned before, I am in love with this product. I use the Teami Cleanse about 4 times a year! That along with eating as clean as you can, and getting that booty to the gym a few times a week will be your secret weapon!
I also have to share another amazing and delicious find… I add a cinnamon stick to my Teami Skinny & Teami Colon! It’s the perfect spice to add that cozy taste helping with the transition into fall!
The Teami Detox Tea & Colon Cleanse can help with the following:
Happy to announce that my site is fully up and running again!
I recently moved back home to Chicago and I can’t tell you how amazing it feels!
There’s nothing better than summers in Chicago (Yes, I am a little biased).
With that said, I just acquired a (SUP) Stand Up Paddle Board and I am obsessed!
I love to incorporate a ton of outdoor activities into my workout routine and this one is truly a body blaster!
Stand up paddle boarding is an amazing total body workout that focuses on balance, stability, both core and upper body strength and some cardio as well!
Along with cruising down the beach I tried some SUP yoga… Definitely not easy but I am always up for a challenge!
Sup yoga takes regular yoga to a whole new level… SUP yoga takes away a major stability factor from regular yoga and forces you to constantly adjust your body to maintain balance!
Let me tell you, without balance, you’re going for a nice dip in the lake! (I learned this the hard way! haha)
Nonetheless, I absolutely loved every second of it and I will be back for more!
Here are some fun shots from my day on the lake!

Today, I branched out and tried something new! I wanted to incorporate a different workout into my weekly routine and with the help of a very good friend of mine, I found the perfect fit! We decided to “hang out”! By that I mean literally hang out by doing Hanging Yoga!
Coming from the least flexible human being in the world (I seriously have a tough time touching my toes) this yoga class was incredible. Not only did it challenge my strength and balance, it helped me with my flexibility and I honestly feel fantastic from head to toe!
The class definitely had some good hearted laughs at my expense due to my extreme inflexibility and the fact that I was totally out of my element. That said, I was made to feel very welcome and comfortable by everyone there! And hey, who can’t use a good laugh from time to time! One of the most important of life’s lessons is to not be so serious all the time. It’s definitely ok to laugh at yourself! As a matter of fact, it’s healthy!
All the years of playing soccer has taken a toll on my body. My ankles, knees, hips, neck, back, shoulders…and just about every other joint in my body is tight and sore all the time. I am constantly stretching and/or rolling out both pre and post workout but nothing, to date, has made me feel as good as this hanging yoga class did!
I swear to you, after just one class I actually feel better! My hips were stretched out, my back, neck and spine were elongated, my hamstrings and calves feel better than they have in years and… by the end of the class, I WAS ABLE TO TOUCH MY TOES! 🙂
I rate my overall experience as a 10 out of 10 and definitely recommend Hanging Yoga!
