Favorite Quote Friday: Maya Angelou

It’s been awhile since I posted some of my favorite quotes, and I definitely wanted to share this one today:

“I can be changed by what happens to me but
 I refused to be reduced by it”
~ Maya Angelou

This quote is so real for me right now more than ever. I’ve been going through some serious things lately, they’ve tested my spirit, and it’s taken all my strength to continue to move forward…although it is so tempting to go backwards. We all go through things in life, but we all have a choice to make. To be consumed by the negativity, or push past it.Have a great weekend :)

Get Firm this February with Gaiam TV

As a busy single working mama, there is just never enough time in the day! Because of my schedule fitness always comes last, which I’m not proud about. I understand the benefits of exercise, but haven’t yet been able to get my butt into gear and dedicate the time necessary to prioritize my health. Enter Gaiam TV! There are some great gyms near me, but they are very expensive, and if I’m not at work then I’m with my daughter, so impossible to get to the gym! Gaiam TV is the first streaming video subscription offering designed to support people interested in health, wellness, yoga, fitness, and personal development. Awesome! With over 2,000 titles, it really is like Netflix or Redbox for health, yoga, and fitness!  
I had the opportunity to check out all that Gaiam TV has to offer and I was blown away! I recently had to cancel my On Demand so I no longer have access to fitness videos, and I was so excited about all the titles that were on Gaiam TV. I’ve wanted to get into boxing and was psyched to see a boxing tutorial video with Sugar Ray Leonard & Laila Ali! Viewers can sweat it out with top instructors like Jillian Michaels, Mari Winsor, Rodney Yee, and Kathryn Budig to name a few.
After a long day at work, I swear my brain turns into mush, which is no problem with Gaiam because it’s extremely user friendly and simple to use. Viewers can customize workouts for weight loss, total body sculpting or increased energy and narrow down their options based on level, style, instructor, and amount of available time. Only have time for a short video? No problem. Have more time, no problem! With Gaiam TV, viewers can easily search for videos, make playlists, and preview selections. Plus, subscribers to Gaiam TV are offered the chance to rate and review Gaiam TV titles. This really is customized to fit your needs and meets you where you are in your fitness journey.
This isn’t something that you have to use during certain hours of the day; the entire library of award-winning videos is available anytime, anywhere. So whether you’re home, visiting friends or family, or on vacation, at work, you have access and 24/7 convenience for streaming from your computer, iPad, or smartphone.
Even better is Gaiam TV offers a free 10-day trial to prospective subscribers. Gaiam TV’s $9.95/moth subscription fee allows you to stream unlimited content, without restriction. This no strings attached subscription means that there is no commitment and you can cancel at any time. Click here to take advantage of Gaiam TV’s Free 10-day Trial – No Strings Attached!
