About Araceli Valdes and Latina Light
I was born in the U.S. but for most of my childhood I was raised in Mexico. My wonderful Mexican mother is a brilliant cook and nutritionist and she raised me with the unique combination of traditional and healthy Mexican cuisine. I moved to Los Angeles after high school where I began a career in television both behind and in front of the camera. I’ll never forget seeing the result of one particular photo session; I was shocked at the unhealthy, pudgy girl in the photographs and realized right then and there that I had become victim to an unhealthy lifestyle of bad eating and a lack of exercise and the only person I was harming was myself. I had strayed from the healthy choices my mother had taught me but I vowed to make a change. I began to eat the healthy way my mother taught me and added fun daily exercises. Soon I had lost 20 lbs. and most importantly I felt amazing and my self- esteem went through the roof! Little things that were unimaginable to do before like put on a swimsuit in public or shop for new clothes I could not only do, but I enjoyed doing them. It was unbelievable how many different areas of my life improved when I finally took control of my life and became the best I could be.
When people would ask me my secret to looking so good I would explain that I had adopted a new healthy, fun and energetic lifestyle that included wonderful traditional Mexican meals that are healthy and delicious! The more I talked to people about my new healthy lifestyle, we realized that many of us could benefit from this vigorous way of life. So then I created Latina Light so people everywhere can get organized, get healthy and make the change in themselves that they’ve always dreamed about.

Release the arms and return to the original standing position. Repeat Exercise with next leg.
Bicycles – Abs
Lie face up on the floor and lace your fingers behind your head. Bring the knees in towards the chest and lift the shoulder blades off the ground without pulling on the neck. Straighten the left leg out while simultaneously turning the upper body to the right, bringing the left elbow towards the right knee. Switch sides, bringing the right elbow towards the left knee.

Plan your workout schedule ahead and stick to it. Find out what time of day is easier for you to workout. I personally have found that it works a lot better for me to wake up early and get the workout over with. I always find 1000 excuses to not workout in the evening. For me it is such a rewarding way to start the day, I wake up at early and get started with my workout.
