Back at it again.

IMG_4758Hi beautiful people!

I am so thrilled to announce my return to my blog! 2017 was one HECK of a year. There have been so many changes in this last year and I am beyond grateful for all it has brought to my life.

Last year I changed job positions, had a break up, had a glow up, moved, and took the steps to finish my bachelors degree in business management.

like I said….one heck of a year.

But it feels so good to be back. My goal for this year is to post at least twice a week and whenever else I can in between.

2018 is the year of BEAUTY, FITNESS, and LIFESTYLE.

so lets get to it.

 

love you guys so much and I am so happy to be back with my blog fam.

 

xoxo

You gotta put that work in to earn your keep

#NoExcuses

Good morning lovely people! I have been feeling absolutely amazing since the beginning of the year. Let myself slide off track for a week or so in December as the holidays approached. I felt I worked hard the entire year and needed to treat myself. But for all you fitness junkies you already know that treating yourself is almost like torture, at least for me it is. I feel the best when I’m in my routine with my fitness and nutrition.

That being said I wanted to share a quick workout I did yesterday that was fast, fun, hard, sweaty, and awesome💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻



I found a space that suited me and put 20 minutes on the clock. I used a fitness room at my gym that is pretty large.

 

40lb barbell dead lifts x 8

500 meter sprint

Box jumps x 5

500 meter sprint

Repeated until timer went off. 

Took a 3 minute rest…

20 minutes on the clock

40 lbs barbell sumo squats x 5

Jump rope x 30

Weighted step ups with two 15 lb dumbbells x 10

Jump rope x 30

Repeated until timer went off.

Took a 3 minute rest…

10 minutes on the clock

Walking lunges with two 15 lbs dumbbells x 10

Jumping jacks x 20

Weighted kick outs with 25 lb plate x 5

Repeated until timer went off

Stretch upper and lower body for ten minutes.

Guys this workout was bomb!! My endorphins and blood were flowing…I was sweating up a storm, and I felt unbelievable ! I devoted an hour to my health yesterday in the BEST way possible. If you are sick of traditional cardio or bored with your routine, I highly encourage you to incorporate some HIIT into your life!!

Have a lovely day beauties,

Xoxo

Stop For No One

#NewYearVibes

Good morning beautiful babes! Just needed to share with you some new year feels. 2016 was so incredibly good to me in terms of growing and finding myself. In four short days I can already see where 2017 is taking me. This year is 100 percent about personal growth and kicking some ass. Being kind but not careful. Learning every day but stopping for nothing. There is no such thing as boundaries or ceilings anymore. 

Not at work. Not at home. Not at the gym. Nowhere.  

Take some time this year to motivate yourself to be the best version of you. See what you want and make it happen. Set goals and crush them every day. Don’t put your dreams and goals on hold for anyone else around you that might be trying to bring you down. Stay inspired and rise above. 

“There is nothing enlightened about shrinking  so others don’t feel insecure around you. And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others”

Gingerbread State Of Mind

 

#ItsAllAboutYourMindset

-A holiday inspired note to my friends-

 

I truly believe from the bottom of my heart that everything we do in this life is mental. The secret to success and happiness is visualizing what you want and going after it full steam ahead.

I am of the thought that everything we do is 80% mental and 20% physical. This means we have to train our brain to perform and our body will follow suit.

 

Ever notice that if you want something bad enough, you get it ?


Ever met a thin person who claims they can eat whatever they want and not gain weight?


Ever known a person who is constantly trying new things and being successful at them?


Its a mindset.


Changing the way you think changes the way you live.
Putting positivity and gratitude into the world will allow you to receive it back.
Live with a grateful heart and dream your goals into reality.

 


Back to the gingerbread:


For those of us who push through long work days, tough workouts, have families, have time-consuming hobbies, or are just running around constantly- our souls need a reward.


Around the holidays stress starts to pile up, food intake increases rapidly, and a lot of the time we start to feel pretty bad about ourselves.

 

Change that.


Find excitement in shopping for others. Give back to those who may be in need. And for Christ sake eat those Christmas cookies you’ve been staring at for days !
I’ve found in my journey that I can put in the work, eat well, keep my nutrition on point, and still cheat without consequence.

 

Why?


Because I believe I can. I know it won’t hinder my goals. I know I will bounce back. I know how well I eat, how hard I push in the gym, and how much I deserve to feed my soul.

Try this in your daily life beauties. Turn a negative mindset into a positive one and watch your life flourish. Take charge of your destiny. Dream big. And never, ever, give up on the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.

Holidays Got You Feeling Rushed?

#TwentyMinuteWorkout

Hi my loves! The holidays can be unbelievably stressful and have us running around like crazy people!! Who has time for a workout between work, holiday parties, friends, family, holiday shopping, wrapping, baking….you get the point! The fact is…everyone has 20 minutes of their day to devote to their health! 
One of my FAVORITE quotes maybe ever is…

“We all have the same hours in the day as Beyoncé” 



And let me tell you….that girl slays. 

And so can you!!


Find a space that suits you and some equipment. Either at the gym with weights or even modify this at home with body weight exercises.

Put 20 mins on a timer



Pick two exercises to alternate. Today I chose push-ups  and Bosu Ball Crunches with 15 lb Dumbbell 



Alternate these two exercises with some form of cardio in between until the timer goes off. The circuit I chose was as follows:

5 push-ups 

30 jumping jacks

8 crunches on bosu ball with dumbbell

30 jumping jacks

5 push-ups 

30 jumping jacks

8 crunches on bosu ball with dumbbell 

Etc… 



By the time I was finished my heart rate was up, I had a major sweat going on, and I had burned a ton of calories. Circuit training is honestly the best ! It combines cardio and weight training so you can skip boring 40 minute sessions on the treadmill and instead blast out a 20 minute circuit that will give you tremendous results. 

Next time you don’t have time in your day for a workout remember two things:

  1. Beyoncé has time
  2. It only takes 20 minutes

Thank you beauties for reading and I hope this workout gave you some inspo to get up and get moving and burn off some of those cookies we all know you’ve been shoving in your face (because I know I have) 

😘😘😘
