Motivation Monday by Magda

Why not wake up in the morning and make it great day every day! Everywhere I go people ask me why I am so positive? It’s a choice. It’s my belief. If you choose to be this way, nothing can stop you. The truth is, I have a ritual that I’d like to share with you for free. No webinar, no video, no membership costs!

Wake up today and get your heart rate up for twenty minutes. The rate you are looking to achieve is between 115-120 beats per minute. Go old school and put your hand on your wrist and count for sixty seconds. The pulse should be in this range. Once you have achieved that rate maintain it for twenty minutes. Run through the neighborhood, make love to your committed partner (heart health is better when you have a loyal partner) chase your toddler, jump for joy- just maintain.

A study conducted in the University of Georgia concludes that if you exercise moderately, three times a week before your day begins, you mitigate daily stress and protect your mood from being disturbed. This type of exercise does more to boost thinking than thinking does! Just twenty minutes a day creates a mood enhancing effect which translates to a happier more positive YOU!

Everyone can do this. Like keeping positive, it’s a choice. I wish you only healthy choices. It’s never too late! This way, nothing can break your stride. Stride, I can’t believe I run marathons! Amazeballs!

and if you don’t know, it’s better than coffee,

feel my pain

According to runner’s world, everyday health, I have just joined a private club. Only 0.5% of the American population has run a marathon. I’ll bet a lot fewer of that American population have run a marathon the day after they ran a half marathon. I really didn’t see my decision to run these marathons (39.3 miles collectively) as anything more than joining someone I love in something he does for a living. I woke up! I can’t move. I’m in pain. Wow!
As I lay in bed thinking of the soreness throughout my body, I realized that it was not a decision to run at all! It was a decision to submit to a new way of life. It was a mind shift. The difference in making my body strong, stronger than ever was my trainer. He is the difference.
For approximately one year, I have been training at a very extreme level (nutrition, sleep schedules, exercise). I do not lift bars with compounded weights at the either side ever. I do not use drugs. I am so energetic every day. I can do anything I set myself up to do. It is 100% because of my training experience. I am unstoppable. I am healthy. It is freedom. It is a choice.
I am asked daily what I do to look and stay younger and stronger. My response is always the same. My trainer.
Health is wealth! I am very wealthy. I am so grateful for this newfound richness. I am alive because of it.
Life has a new zest. For God sakes, I am part of an elite club! I am now a marathoner. More people walk around with a titanium American Express Card. Haaa!
It is not by irony that I have done so much for myself and my son in the very same year I have been training with him. It is because internal strength becomes external too.
The pain I am in now is temporary, the rewards to this pain are exponential. I see those rewards reveal themselves daily. I am a better person because of this pain. I owe this betterment to my trainer.
I want to Shout it Out, call my trainer. I want this greatness to be an epidemic. I want you to feel my pain. It is amazing! Statistically, I burned 4,320 calories running this weekend, I gained a lifetime of wonderful.

i lived

This blog has been more than what I bargained for. People do scream my name. the waters did rise and I did have to build walls. I did fall in love. This time, there is no pain. I met so many wonderful people. It has been surreal.
“dare to be different’ happened because I lost what I knew to be mine. I lost my marriage, my family, my normalcy. I was dared.
I chose to accept the dare and be different. My son chose this slogan for my company and these words mean much to both him and I. they ring true every day.
I was the girl that kept wearing the same black dress. And then Marilyn came into my life. Her army, michelle, lauren and christina started texting me. Poking me, rebuilding me. Simple kindness and Jimmy Choos will cure all ailments. Studio LX became part of my firm. Old friends came out of hiding, Bibi and christy made a Splash and introduced me to Ivette. We did a television promo in everything Alexis. Now, I was ready.
The choice to quit smoking, saved a lot more than my life. It gave me purpose to pay it forward. I became humble. I am grateful. stopsmokingstartliving is my duty now. Shacky started me moving with this movement. That’s a great record to make.
My body is my temple, my soul is hard to touch. Body & Soul opened during my transformation and is a great part of my success. Pharrell and Kim Kardashian were memories only a big guy like Alex can afford me.
Doctor Dribble walked into B&S and my heart simultaneously. he brought with him a new method. A new method of living and a new method of loving. Without any hesitation, he is my favorite client.
I am a beast. I am a marathoner. (Roman likes to clarify half- marathoner) I have abs. I squat properly. I swing. The credit is mine and the venue in which this took place is Newton’s Method.
Chrsitie’s fitness fuel revolutionized brownies. How does chocolate become so sexy? #eatmeguiltfree

Suzel Vazquez MD cuts like a non-invasive laser. Impressive list of clientele. Marlyne Alexander Photography memorialized MLB and the greater Miami area. Unique Me Magazine elected A Femme Fatale that turned out to be an angel, a fellow blogger.
Not only that, they discovered a Man with Heart, my heart to be exact.
Throughout this blog, I did many good deeds and they deeded me back. Its no cliché that when you help someone else, you help yourself the most.
I am still one big bang away from the end of this year. I will be rapping up two more goals on my list before 2013 comes to a close.
I celebrated Hanukkah. Why not? He loves me, I love him – it’s cool.
As all greatness, it’s a constant work in progress. My site is being revamped. I was told I cannot blog for a month or two. Haaa!
The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. #iwillblogon
Im not sure how, not sure when but please keep checking in- I will be back.
In the meantime, we can set up camp on facebook temporarily or maybe ill pop a squat on a friendly website. What I do know, is that I will come back stronger, larger and better in 2014. I’m dope like that, hard headed.
Till then, raise a glass and know that YES, I did it all!!

and if you don’t know, I’ve only just begun,

bet you I can do it in sub two?

My week turned into a warm up for a half marathon. It felt like a full marathon. I don’t know what either feel like to date, but if I did, I’m sure it would be similar.

The only symbol that stayed tranquil was LULU! I checked in between takes, interviews, hair and makeup. It’s not easy watching stock and recording a reel.

I spent ninety nine percent of the airtime focused on health and wellness. I stole the remaining one percent channeling my father. He never afforded himself more than two takes. I had a blast making this. If you were part of the production, I thank you for your participation and or hospitality in advance. We can have a viewing party soon!

Did you get a glimpse of the oysters on steroids? I had to share because they were mammoth.

Jugo Fresh opened for life again, but this time at Body & Soul. I met Chef Darren today, pretty funny. I love Jugo Fresh and I love… The cinnamon rolls too.

My friend, Laura Posada, honored me with a meal and lots of laughter at Roaster’s n Toaster’s in Kendall. We were both served wonderful healthy food in giant portions. Thank you Danny for allowing us and the crew into your venue.

Doctor Dribble had his way with me on film! He showed some mad skills while on camera live from Newton’s Method. I love it when you turn into a beast. Training the body as one muscle is impressive. Running marathons with the balls is equally impressive, did you donate to his most recent cause?

Havana Nights on the 19th is around the corner, if you haven’t bought your tickets, call Mighty at 305.903.7160 she will arrange sneaking you in through the back.

Last day for applications for the Gulliver Holiday Marketplace is today! But if you can’t get me the money in time, you can Instagram yourself singing your version of ROAR by Katy Perry and hashtag #sorrymagdaimlate @revete.

The Ravens caught us in a weak moment. It’s alright, every dawg! FINS UP!!

Benjamin Dash here we come. A team ready to raise money for SAMANTHA! I’m eating my Wheaties and doing Turkish get ups on Sundays. Beware.

And if you don’t know, I’m a runner too,
