Makeup Geek Eye Shadows

Before quarantine started I saw that Makeup Geek was having  huge sale of all the eye shadows due to the fact that they were remodeling all the eye shadows and no longer selling the circle eye shadows but moving on to squares.
Needless to say it was all very cheap, so I bought ton of them. they arrived about mid March, but I waited to open the box on my birthday, May 1st. I still have not put them into the palettes. I am having a hard time deciding which goes where. I know it shouldn't be that difficult, but it is when you take into consideration that I would like each palette to have all the necessary colors for a look. That way I wouldn't have to pull out several palettes. Not sure it's going to be possible though and I may end up color coding them.

Here's the video of the first one I made today.

Antes de iniciar a quarentena eu vi que a Make Up Geek estava tendo uma promoção grande das sombras pois estavam remodulado a marca e não iam mais ser redondas e sim quadradas, bom comprei né, um monte. A caixa chegou la pelo meio de marco, mais eu não abri ate o meio aniversario dia 1 de maio. Ainda não coloquei nos estojos e ta difícil decidir que cor vai aonde. Eu queria fazer de um jeito para que cada paleta poderia ser usada sozinha assim  eu não teria que tirar varias paletas, mas não sei se vai ser possível talvez só pego e faco cada um de uma cor e deu. Estou postando o primeiro vídeo das paletas aqui. Esta em português por sinal.

Covid 19

     So as we all know we are in middle of a pandemic and because of this I figured I would write a little about it. So far there have been 6 cases in the county I live in. May seem like only a few, but when you realize how small the county is it seems like a lot. Up until last week there were only 3 and now all of a sudden there are 3 more. 

I have been working from home since March 25th. The school year has been canceled at the schools so I have only two more weeks of school, before it is all over, and summer break is here. Working from home is fine for me. I know some people don't like it, but honestly I love it! 

Covid-19 did not bring too many changes to my kids either, since they were already homeschooled we just kept on with that. The only thing they had to cancel was their daily swim practice, other than that and not being able to go to the store or out in general. 

   I've been trying to study for my test on June 29th, but haven't been very faithful with that. Also trying to work out on a daily basis, yoga mainly. 

For the past week I have been in a Telegram group for intermittent fasting. It's been going good. One thing I have learned is that you can't do it everyday like I had been doing. If you do your body gets used to it and no longer reacts to the fast.
In the group we are led by 2 nutritionists and we have a guide book to follow as well. 
It's been nice and I hope to continue on with the program even when the 14 days are up. 

I think that's it for today. Thanks for joining and talk to you soon.


Então estamos no meio de uma pandemia e resolvi escrever um pouco sobre o assunto. Por enquanto tivemos 6 casos no condado onde mora. Pode parecer pouca coisa mas se você levar em conta o tamanho do condado são bastante. Ate semana passada havia somente 3 casos ai do nada apareceram mais 3. 

Eu estou trabalhando em casa desde dia 25 de março, o ano letivo foi cancelado e a escola na qual eu trabalho só temos mais 2 semanas e serão ferias de verão. Eu sei que tem gente que não gosta de trabalhar em casa, mas sinceramente eu estou adorando. 

Covid-19 não trouxe muita diferença para a vida dos meus filhos pois eles já faziam homeschooling (estudo em casa), então só continuaram com isso. As únicas coisas que tivram que parar de fazer foram a natação diária e sair para passear no mercado ou qualquer outro lugar. 

Eu estou tentando estudar para uma prova que tenho agendado para o dia 29 de junho, mas por enquanto estou muito atrasada nisso.

Desde a semana passada estou participando de um grupo no Telegram sobre jejum intermitente. Estou indo bem e aprendendo, apesar de que eu já fazia jejum quase todos dias ai estava o meu erro pois tem que intercalar se não o corpo acostumar e não adianta nada.  O grupo esta sendo liderado por duas nutricionistas e temos um e-book para seguir também. Tenho gostado bastante e espero seguir em frente com esse programa depois de terminar os 14 dias.

Acho que era isso. Obrigada por me acompanhar e ate breve.

Birthday

Happy birthday to me! Yay, today is my birthday and I am now 41 years old. OMG...old as the hills. Not sure what I will be doing for my birthday, working from home. My 40th year was a pretty good year. I started yoga teacher training and worked on becoming a yoga teacher. Covid 19 kind of messed up the training and we haven't met since February. Hoping we can get it all done online and it seems we will.

Goals for the new year...start teaching Yoga! Get my Health Coach certification and start an online business with that. Take a nutrition related course. I also applied for a Master's in Photography at Ohio University and am on the waiting list for that. It would be very nice if they accepted me. Fingers crossed for that one.

Feliz aniversario para mim. Oba, hoje estou de aniversario, e faco 41 aninhos. Meu pai do céu estou ficando velha. Não tenho certeza do que estarei fazendo para o meu aniversario, trabalhando de casa. Meu 40 ano foi bom. Comecei o meu treinamento de professora de Yoga e comecei a fazer isso. A virose meio que estragou os planos nesse sentido e nos não fizemos aula desde fevereiro. estamos tentando se formar online e parece que vai dar.

Metas pro ano novo...ensinar Yoga. Terminar o meu curso de Coach da saúde e começar algum tipo de serviço online com isso. Fazer um curso de nutrição. Eu me inscrevi na faculdade para tentar fazer mestrado de fotografia e estou na lista de espera mas seria ótimo se me aceitassem. Torcendo muito.

Kundalini Yoga

Have you heard of Kundalini Yoga? I did a workshop on it last Saturday and am now in the process of purchasing some books so I can study up on it a bit more and incorporate it into my practice and perhaps my classes in the near future.

Before taking the workshop I looked it up and read a little about it. I also wrote and asked my Yoga teacher what she thought about it and her thoughts on it. She let me know that it is intense. I figured it was as I had read and seen some videos of different classes and practices.

It does incorporate different meditations one of which I already do, which is the Ra, Ma, Da. In the workshop I learned that joining the Ra, Ma, Da with another one, calls for impossibilities to become possibilities. I have been needing some of that lately.

That's the plan for now and I will keep you updated on how the Kundalini practice goes.

See you soon!

Ja ouviu falar de Yoga Kundalini? Fiz um workshop no sábado passado e estou no processo de comprar alguns livros para que eu possa estudar mais um pouco e quem sabe usar nas minhas praticas e quem sabe minhas aulas no futuro.

Antes de fazer o workshop eu havia pesquisado um pouco sobre o assunto e assistir algumas aulas online. Também perguntei para a minha professora de Yoga o que ela pensava do assunto, ela me disse que e intenso, que eu achava que era depois das pesquisas que eu fiz.

Ele incorpora meditações algumas das quais ja faco tal como o Ra, Ma, Da. No workshop aprendi que juntando essa meditação com outro e utilizado para  transformar as impossibilidades em possibilidades, que eu estou precisando ultimamente.

Bom esse e o plano agora e te mantenho atualizado de como vão as minhas praticas de Kundalini.

Ate breve!

Habit Tracker

ENGLISH: Habits are sometimes hard to break or start new ones. There are several ways to start new habits. One of them is having a plan to follow. Start simple, with something easy. You can try to do the new habit you are trying to establish after something you already have a habit of doing, by doing this you help yourself remember the new habit until it becomes a habit.

For example, You want to get into the hbit of drinking a glass of water first thing every morning. The first thing you do every morning is go down to the kitchen to prepare coffee,  So you can do the water drinking as soon as you turn on the coffee. Turn on the coffee, drink a glass of water. Before you know it you will be in the habit of drinking that water before anything else.

Another idea is having a Habit Tracker. Again start simple. Taking small steps in the right direction.  I made a Habit Tracker. You can get yours here.

Let me know what you think and if it works for you.
What habits are you trying to build?
Lately I have been trying to build the habit of meditating every morning before work. How? By doing right after I get my cup of coffee. I take the coffee with me, grab my journal, turn on the diffuser and meditate.

Thanks for being here!

PORTUGUÊS: As vezes fica difícil iniciarmos novos hábitos ou quebrar hábitos antigos. Existem varias maneiras de iniciar novos hábitos. Uma forma e ter um plano para seguir, comece de forma simples, com algo fácil. Você pode começar tentando fazer o habito novo logo depois de algum habito que você já tenha, assim você se ajuda a lembrar do habito novo ate que se torno um habito consagrado.

Por exemplo, você quer começar a tomar um copo de água todas as manhas antes de qualquer outra coisa. Todo dia de manha você desce pra fazer um cafe. Então comece a tomar a água assim que você ligar o cafe, ou colocar no fogo. Liga o cafe, toma água!  Quando você vê você estará no habito de tomar água antes de qualquer outra coisa.

Outra ideia um Tracker de Hábitos. Novamente comece com algum simples. Pequenos passos na direção certa. Eu fiz um Tracker e você pode ter clicando aqui.

Me avisa se gostou ou se funcionou para voce.
Quais os habitos que voce esta tentando cultivar:

Ultimamante estou tentando criar o habito de meditar de manha quando eu acordo antes do trabalho. Como... faço assim que o meu cafe estiver pronto e levo meu cafe comigo, pego o meu caderno, ligo o difusor e medito. 

Obrigada

Yoga Teacher

I started Yoga teacher training in October of last year, 2019.  It had been something on my list of things I wanted to do for awhile and when the opportunity arose of course I jumped on it. It's been a process and it's not over yet. I should be graduated my next month, April. I have already taught a few classes around town and am looking for more opportunities to teach. I believe that yoga is a process. It's a journey. It's not the destination. And you have to make the time and take the time. It is a way of life as well. Don't expect to go to a yoga class and walk out and continue life as usual. I mean you can if you want to, but for me it is more than that. You need to look around you and be mindful of your surroundings, be mindful of what is happening around you. Be present. Don't let your mind wander. Bring it back to the present moment. Be in the moment, this moment, the here and now.
And best of all:
Don't forget to breathe!

Container Diet

      So I have been wanting to try the container diet for a while now, but did not want to invest in the containers from a high end brand or anything like that. Then low and behold I found the containers at Walmart. They have two options, one is a set from a brand that comes with one set of 7 containers as well as the amounts to eat and a plan to follow. I originally thought of purchasing that one as it came with a plan to follow, the price was $9ish! The other set was Walmart's brand Mainstay, but it came with 21 containers. Although it did not come with the plan to follow I figured I could ask Google and find out. Also the Mainstay one was cheaper $7ish. If you haven't guessed by now I got the cheaper version with more containers. I figure that way I can prep food for the next day or at least the next meal.

    What I've been doing is using the 2B Mindset eating plan or allowances with the containers. From my point of view it works better because I can't say, "Well I'm still eating veggies most." While heaping more veggies on the plate and adding more protein.

Have you tried anything similar??

Zucchini Paddy

Today for lunch I tried a new recipe that I saw on IGTV from @thestayathomechef.
But I tweaked it a bit to fit my needs.

This is what I did:
Grate 1 whole large zucchini
Add cheese, salt, 3 eggs
Mix
Add some tapioca flour
Mix it up and fry.

Quite filling and satisfying.

I'm thinking you could make it with any veggie so maybe I'll try some cabbage, preferably cooked so it's already soft.
Let me know if you try it and how you like it.

Workouts

Figured I'd write a little about the workout I've been doing. Now that I am on summer break it has been easier to get them in. This week I did some of one called Treino Intensity. It's by a Brazilian who lives in Florianopolis. Worth checking out! So her videos are only 10 minutes long. I know you're probably thinking ten minutes is nothing and you're right it is nothing, but the workouts are definitely something. She has a program for you to follow as well, like a schedule. Since I like doing things on my own I have been doing 2 of them a day plus 2 her other ab ones. Barriga Zero. Look her up on Instagram if you're interested. Coach Estrela Terra!
So this week I was pretty faithful getting it done. Which was awesome. Feel much better once it's done! I have a 5K race tomorrow night. My first night run, which should be fun! So I also did a run on Tuesday, a short one at the nearby park. Then yesterday I did a 5K on the treadmill at home. My kids did not want to go out with me for my run so I opted to run at home. Guess that's the perk of having a treadmill.
So that's what I'm doing for now. Hoping to keep it up throughout the whole of summer and get this body in shape. The shape I want it to be in. From my point of view that's what really matters. Not what anyone else has to say.
See you on the treadmill, on the mat, or on the bike path.

Books

Now that I am on summer break from teaching I am trying to do some reading. Hasn't been easy with everything else that I want to get done as well. But I thought I'd show you the book I am reading at the moment. Photography and the Art of seeing by Freeman Patterson. This book helps you change your perspective on photography and break some of the so called rules of photography.
There are also exercises and homework along the way, that I will be trying to do as I read along. If you are interested in reading this book you can find it here. Just a click away. Enjoy!

Happy New Year 2019

Happy New Year! Happy 2019 from rainy gloomy Athens, OH. There was no white Christmas here this year and no snow for the welcoming of the new year either. I don't really mind as I walk to work and am not thrilled about the idea of walking in the snow, it's already cold enough as it is without snow. But I was talking to an acquaintance the other day and she told me that they have to have snow here and  it needs to get good and cold, because if it does not there will be too many insects....hmmm don't know about that. Could be!?

Anyhow, new years resolutions. Maybe I have too many...as usual. I would like to blog more and make it a thing. So if I want to make it a thing maybe I should write more often. If I don't write anything pretty sure no one will read it. duh! So yeah, resolution one: WRITE BLOG!!
Another is to run, make that a thing too. I did run two 5k races in 2018...go me! First time for everything. But I want to do the 10k in April, if the agency I work for sponsors me like last year...ok resolution 2: RUN 10K. Included in the running bit will be lose weight and get fit for the big 4.0 which 2019 brings me!

I also have other resolutions like take more pictures, do more of my hobbies: calligraphy, crochet (making a jellyfish atm) just DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY!

I think that enough for resolutions. Perhaps I'll look back on these next year and see what was done.

So have a Happy New Year and may it be everything we hope and dream.
