Look Great FEEL Great!

I have been thinking about what the Live OUT LOUD Movement stands for quite a bit lately. I have come to discover for myself that it is MUCH MORE than just fitness.  It is a way of living in many areas including but not limited to fitness, nutrition, mindset, skin care, confidence, making a difference…essentially all of what lights us up to be AWESOME human beings.  I wanted to share this with you because I knew I had been struggling with my skin but didn’t realize how much until I tried something new!  I am also going to dedicate a page to this called Look Great FEEL Great where you can find a link to where I discovered all of these awesome products that ACTUALLY work!

The pictures I am sharing are a 3 week period to now of trying something out…but HERE is the BACK STORY…LONG but I feel really WORTH THE READ if you have are or are at a point questioning…what can I do to better my skin?

I have struggled with my skin for YEARS. Actually kind of gave up/became resigned that I would NEVER have nice skin.
Super sensitive to cleaning products, breaking out all the time AND with aging my wrinkles getting bigger & bigger.

In the last few years, I have been wearing more & more makeup to cover it up….in hopes no one could tell. Anyone else do that?
A few months ago I met with a friend of mine, who I actually met through Facebook/mutual friends & quite honestly she is just one of those positive people I love to see being awesome in the world.

When we met, I had a feeling she had a secret to growing YOUNGER (cuz she looks FABULOUS) When we met after some conversation she asked if I would be willing to try something. Totally resigned but always open to at least “trying” I felt I could at least try & PROVE to her that products do not work for me…LOL…that is literally how resigned I was but a little hopeful too…

What happened?

COMPLETELY THE OPPOSITE!

After the first use, I felt my skin feeling better. Almost like if my skin could talk it would say…”well it’s about time!”

After a few more days I began to notice my skin brightening & becoming smoother….within 5 days it was like a WHOLE NEW YOUNGER FACE! In the past 2 months of using the products, I have seen my wrinkles getting smaller, my skin brighter and all over feeling more confident! You may not know this about me, but my skin has always been an area in which I have been shy about. LOOK OUT WORLD CUZ I AM FEELING & LOOKING GREAT! Hehehe!

All I gotta say is I am now at a point where I feel I can confidently share that this has been a life altering experience that I am pretty pumped about. A few months ago I became a Representative of this product (even after swearing off all direct marketing companies forever, I just couldn’t dispute this product. It actually works!)

I want to help all women & men that may be having this struggle too. I know you are out there! It can’t just be me who was having this experience. With absolutely no pressure, you try it out. If you love it or hate it, let me know. Either way works.

The company has more products too, but for me, this is what needed as a drastic change for me to even consider looking at anything else they had. I am seriously impressed with the results & will start trying other products soon!

If you want to know more info about this & how it can work for you, please let me know by sending a private message. I want to help as many people FEEL as amazing as I do!

Much Love,

Tammy

It is almost like you see the difference AND YOU CAN FEEL THE DIFFERENCE in these pictures! I am so happy now!

Do You Get the Mid Week Blues?

Never fear! Zumba Basics is HERE!!! 🙂

Okay, yes. I do get quite excited about this.

Here is why….many years ago now (before I found Zumba) I used to find Tuesdays to be a very long day and by the time Wednesday rolled around, I would be feeling super tired and wishing for the weekend….since discovering the great world of Zumba AND doing a Zumba class every wednesday, my energy to kick it through the week has been AMAZING!

I personally just want everyone to have amazing days and incredible weeks and now that we have moved into this uber cool spot of High Park Brewery, it has made it even MORE FUN (if that was even possible)!!

This location is especially great for those who have friends or family who want to join you but may or may not want to actually do the class for now.  They can come, sit on the patio or inside, enjoy a cold pint or soda, listen to the music and pick up on the energy whether they are doing the class or not! Pretty cool!

You get to do your fitness class AND spend time with those you care about! OR, if you just need a night away from everyone, this is just a really awesome place to get your groove on with some pretty spectacular ladies!!

SEE YOU SOON!!!

Here are the Deets:

Wednesdays @ 6:45pm  High Park Brewery (839 Runnymede Road)

Come a few minutes early to get signed in!

Cost: $20 gets you the class & a ticket for a pint of beer or soda after class!

Tonight We Dance!

This morning I got up early (5:45am) in anticipation of it being Wednesday….I love Wednesdays…one of my favorite days of the week for so many reasons!

A big reason today that I am full of energy so early is that I get to see so many of you tonight! Tonight is Zumba Basics at High Park Brewery! Our new location lights me up!

For anyone who is not clear what Zumba Basics is…..it is a latin cardio fitness program that incorporates in music and moves from around the world. I take you on a musical journey of dance (with 3-4 moves per song to keep it easy to follow) from around the world.

We could be doing anything from bachata, salsa, swing, african, hip hop, reggatone, tango, cumbia, pop, brazilian, you name it and you will most likely find it in this class.

It is not about getting it “right”, it is about moving your body and feeling the rhythm in your soul.

I have been teaching now for nearly a decade and before that was a client for a few years with Zumba. In my opinion, this is one of the most fun ways to work out without feeling like you are doing a work out but your sweat and smile at the end let you know that you did!

If you miss a move we are doing, don’t worry about it! Accidental solo’s are the best! We have no mirrors in the Brewery so only you know if you missed it and it’s a great way to train yourself to not be so hard on you! 🙂

ANYONE truly can do Zumba!  If you can move your body in any way, you can do Zumba! I have clients in wheelchairs that do Zumba!  It is one of the best programs out there that is universal to anyone and everyone being able to participate.

Take a chance! I invite you to come out and give it a try!  

After class, enjoy a beer, water or soda and relax with an awesome group of people!  It is the perfect way to spend mid-week!

“That was the most fun Zumba class!”

“You could feel the energy in the brewery”

“That beer was delicious!!”

“When can we do that again? I want to bring my friends!”

“That was easy to follow! It was my first time!”

At the end of the night, Ted & I (one of the amazing owners of the brewery) sat there talking about how great the night was….then we said s if reading each others minds…..”Let’s do it again!!” 🙂

Do You Need Stress Relief?

Life is not easy all the time and being human, we all deal with a certain amount of stress. It is just a fact of life.

Stress is something that will diminish your energy, cause anxiety through your body, leave you feeling like you either need to run away or stand up and fight.

It really does affect us all.

So what’s the solution?

I can only speak from what I know.  What I know if that I spent MANY years being a prisoner of my stress.  It would build up in my body until I felt paralyzed and couldn’t think of what a possible “next step” could even be!

One day while feeling super bummed out and wanting to hide, I heard a fun song on the radio that I knew. I could feel the corners of my mouth turning up. Soon I realized I was singing along.  By the end of the song I was up and moving around cleaning up while doing a little dance.

I felt great. Like the cement blocks on my shoulders were starting to crumble.

I started to do this more often when feeling super stressed out.

It wasn’t until years later that I discovered Zumba…and then really…like no kidding…I DANCE OUT ALL MY STRESS every week and feel amazing…even to this day!!!

Zumba became my full-time stress reliever.

I discovered that rhythms and moving my body to rhythms allowed not only my physical body to “feel good” but it also rearranges molecules in my thinking and how I react to difficult situations.

Zumba became my solution to dealing with my stress. Maybe it could for you too!

Check out a class OR even start by just heading over to my videos and trying one song at home! 🙂

Self-care Comes FIRST

Seriously, this gets missed A LOT by MANY people!

Speaking from my own experience, I have a tendency to put everyone in my life’s needs before my own & by the end of the day, I am spent with no energy to give back to myself.

Recently, I have been switching it up.

Checking in with myself each MORNING & ensuring what I need from myself for the day, I get.

What this has shown me is that I am still able to be there & support others like I always did (if not even better now) & all my own personal needs are taken care of & I do not waiver from ensuring they are in a timely manner everyday!

So do what you need to do to take care of yourself FIRST & then watch how much easier it is to be there for others!

What is it that you need to take care of YOU?a61fa362e283acb2e12de573d31a6253-at-the-top-the-ojays
