Backspaced & retyped. Backspaced & retyped. Backspaced & retyped….about 20 times now:

the truth is 2/27/2016 was the best day of my life thus far. THE BEST.

It was AUTHENTIC. It was REAL. It was a DREAM. It was BEAUTIFUL. But above all, it was so SPECIAL.

I will never (EVER) forget it!

 On 2/27/16 Carlos asked me to be his wife & partner in life.

 First let me start by giving you babes the inside scoop on our love story!

We both grew up in Sugar Land, Texas (the SL… hayyyyyy)!! Carlos and I met years ago….about 10 to be exact! At the time he was in college and working at Lifetime Fitness for a part time job/FREE MEMBERSHIP. GUILTY, I went into the cafe for a smoothie every day, ha. Naturally, I had a crush on him since day one. I totally thought he was THAT hot older guy! On the flip side, Carlos thought I was a normal annoying high school girl. TYPICAL.  I was 16 and he was about 20….which at the time was a HUGE age difference. With our age difference and lack of things in common…nothing came out of this except for a couple post workout smoothies. HA, thanks babe!

HOLD UP, how ironic that we met at the gym doe. FATE.

SELF LOVE-2

#thefitistaSELFlovechallenge + GIVEAWAY

 self-love

noun: self-love

regard for one’s own well-being and happiness

 
With Valentines Day right around the corner, I thought it would be nice to turn our attention to the idea of self-love. Before we get into it, take a moment to read the definition above.
 
Reading it is the easy part, FEELING it is the hard part.
 
Cliché as it might sound self-love is hands down the most important type of love. Why? Because – love for oneself is essential. Before opening  yourself up to be loved by another being, one has to LOVE THEMSELVES.

Self- Love: lets break it down

1. well-being: what are you doing to ensure that you are living a long and healthy life?
2. happiness: are you emotionally satisfied with life?
 

#thefitistaSELFlovechallenge:

18 days of SELF love: 2/12 -2/29

Self love promotes a healthy, positive & strong self image that so many of us tend to lack. Use the hashtag #thefitistaSELFlovechallange to stay connected on social media. Check Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to see who else is doing the challenge along with you! This is my attempt to start the conversation – WHY NOT!

Join me in creating a world full of love for self & others!

Be sure to enter the GIVEAWAY below for your chance to win 300$ to SIX:02! Winner announced 2/29 – last day of the challenge! *winner must be a participant of #thefitistaSELFlovechallange*

HBD GIRLFRANNNNN: 26 HEALTH, HAPPINESS & LOVE TIPS

FEBUARY: it’s my birthday month – otherwise known as the month of love & chocolate kisses… TRUTH! <3

DSC_0693

Being born 2/1 has it’s perks – one, everyone is finally relaxed post XMAS & NYE & two, people are feeling more loveable. Raise your hand (high to the sky) if you are a hopeless romantic… I AM. FEBUARY has always been my very favorite month. Not only because I start the month off right by celebrating my day of birth… BUT because it’s a month full of love.

I know, I know.  

There are people out there with a serious hate for Valentines Day – but why? You don’t have to be in a relationship to show love for someone. Shit, when I was single my mom and dad always got me a small gift or card. STILL DO.
