Tips For Your Healthiest Holiday

‘Tis the Season! But what does that mean for you? The season for abundance of love, family, celebration and joy or an absorbent amount of unhealthy food, drinks, and stress? If you are anything like me and the majority of people around the holidays, as much as we look forward to them we also have

Give ’em hell, Rocky!

I was still at birth. No breathing. No heartbeat. No life inside of me. Yet, I fought and I won. Bruised and beaten, but alive and I fought to make it home. I was so bruised that my Dad nicknamed me “Rocky,” because he said I looked like I just stepped out of the ring.

The Evolution of a Woman’s Thoughts

Let me first preface this by saying, when I’m in the bathroom it has to be fast (meaning I ain’t got no time for quiet let alone selfies) because well…kids. But this morning I woke up early and the entire house is quiet. I walked into the bathroom and felt the need to take a

Take the Leap

Hi! I’m Angelike, and I’m a recovering perfectionist and professional time-waster.

Playing Big When the World Tells You to Play Small

Numbed out zombies. That’s what I call the status quo.

We were taught that dreams were something that only happened while we stare at the back of

Beauty…at the Core

The societal emphasis on outer beauty has women trying to change themselves every day to conform to an image that has been plastered on billboards, TV, movies, magazines and the Internet. And although there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with outward beauty, it is just an empty, barren shell when your character is not in tact. Women

What Really Gets my Goat…

Nothing gets my goat more than when I hear about trainers prepping women for shows and have them doing cardio twice a day, training 7 days a week, pulling carbs and giving them processed “no sugar” foods and telling them they need to lose “xx” amount of pounds. And what’s worse is they have them

Dreams

When I was 21, I decided I wanted to pursue a childhood dream of giving martial arts a try. And so at 21, I made a commitment to try some classes. It scared the dickens out of me to do something so challenging and go against those that were practically raised in a taekwondo uniform
