Workout


GOOOOODMORNING!! *waves*
I started my fitness journey back in 2012, I wanted a change in my life and I thought being healthier would be a great start! Plus, I just wanted to share with you guys a quick workout. I remember starting off slow by removing things that weren't too healthy... sodas etc. Except cookies...but we're allowed to have cheat days right?!
I'm pretty sure I have before and after pictures .. somewhere but that'll be for a later date ;)

I start my morning off with a tall glass of water, I heard that it gets the metabolism going so I've been doing it ever since.


My workout first starts off with this short cardio video from FitnessBlender on YouTube. I love pretty much all their videos, they're great to learn a thing or two as a beginner! I also love that there is none of that cheesy music to go along so its great to play your playlist to help motivate you :)

Also I usually workout in my own room.. don't really like working out at the gym too much.


After my Cardio I either do a few arms, legs & an Ab workout. I do arms or legs on every other day to get some rest in there for my little muscles.

My Ab workout today:

Two sets of 30 seconds of Russian twists with an 8lb Kettle bell
Two sets of 30 seconds of leg lifts

I rest for about 10 secs between each set to keep that intensity YEAH!


Now I know weights get to be a little pricey but, I found my Kettle Bell for about $7 at Ross. Also if you don't know what the ab workouts are please please search on Google or YouTube before attempting anything because I don't want anyone getting hurt attempting a workout!


...Messy room I know haha but this is where my body is at for now and I guess we'll see what's next! Maybe some abs? 


Oh yeah & don't forget to workout with a buddy!
STAY HEALTHY!

Let's Go Shoppinggg!








I was off for today so my sister and I decided to do a little shopping in Downtown City Place since we hardly ever go there. 

What I'm wearing:
Dress & Bag: H&M / Shoes, Sunglasses & Earrings: Forever21 / Ring: Vintage / Hair: Braidout

How cute is my little sister Eliza btw?? We wore matching shoes today lol
Dress: H&M / Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe / Shoes, Headband & Earrings: Forever 21 



We hit up H&M and Sephora, found some really cute staple pieces. I've been into buying those lately cause it gives me more outfit options so I can wear stuff more that once.
I bought Luster Matte Long-Wear in Magenta Luster & Sephora's Instant Moisture kit on sale for $10! ( I'll try to leave you guys a nice review about whether I like these two products)

That soup & salad.. idk what they put in it but DELICIOUS! Peep Eliza in the background grubbin' haha!

For lunch we went to Saito's Japanese Steakhouse. I had Hibachi Salmon w/ Sweet Tea, my sister had Hibachi Shrimp & Chicken and can I just say it was AMAZINGGGGGG!!! I just love, love sea-food & the Salmon came out perf. Would definitely recommend if you've never been :)

I never really noticed how fun Downtown City Place could be but it was!
