Planks, new workouts & an awesome new playlist!

Planks are getting easier and easier for me! I change it up to make it harder.  I add leg raises or use dumbbells for alternate rows.  Side planks are pretty tough, but try doing it for 10 seconds for each side.  You can also dip your hip 15x on each side.  I like to challenge myself.  :)
I found this cool workout on Pinterest: In the morning: 50 crunches 30 squats 10 pushups 30 leg lifts 30 second wall sits
Midday: 30 leg lifts 5 min jump rope 50 crunches 30 second wall sits 100 jumping jacks
In the evening: 100 jumping jacks 50 crunches 30 second wall sits 30 squats 50 leg lifts

Rest days

Sundays are usually my rest days, but I need to run today!!! It's too nice out to not run. Rise and grind people!!

Don't forget to stretch your muscles, apply sunscreen and wear a hat.

Happy Father's Day to all the daddys.

Hair cut

Dun dun dun....

I didn't cut my hair in a year bc of a traumatizing incident. When I say "trim" I don't mean chop off my hair! I'm getting a hair cut tomorrow. I hope it goes well. I will take a picture of the aftermath. Wish me luck!

Answering some questions!

So, I received a compliment on Yelp about my blog and she asked me a couple of questions.  I'm pretty excited to answer these questions. :) If you have any more, please ask!! I love to help others!

What supplements do you take?
-  I take omega 3, calcium + vitamin D, CLA and a multivitamin.
When purchasing vitamins, you should go to Mother's Market for your needs.
My mom bought me this weight loss supplement from Costco, take 2 T bid (twice a day).
I think it actually works; it suppressed my appetite.
For my energy drink, I swear by NSANE!
Get the green apple flavor!

Weekend runs

My little brother joined his high school's tennis team, he lost a lot of weight and matured within one season! I'm so proud of him.

He is my running partner on the weekends, we usually run 7 miles! I found a new route and it's pretty hard! Very steep hills and excruciating!

My legs are so dead right now, but I'm happy that I got my cardio out of the way! Now I can go about my day!

Going to try to eat healthier on the weekends though. :)

Have an awesome weekend!

The Bee's Knees Peanut Butter

The first thought that came to mind when I tasted this magnificent PB was "HOLY SH*T, THIS IS FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I've never tried PB that was so creamy, sweet, with a little bit of a grainy texture, and just so darn addicting. 

I don't really make PJ sandwiches, I just incorporate it into smoothies, eat it by itself, or eat it with apples!!

Here's some smoothie recipes for you guys!
10 oz of skim milk or soy milk
1 T of PB
1 medium banana
6 cubes of ice

3/4 c of cooked instant oatmeal 1/4 c of skim milk 1 T of PB 2 t whey protein powder 1 t honey 1 t ground flaxseed 6 ice cubes

Shape Magazine

Omg!!!! I'm so excited because Shape Magazine sent out a tweet about a week ago, telling us to send a swimsuit pic to be featured in next month's issue. I tweeted a pic and didn't really think I would get a response, bc really, I never get RTs. Lol. I actually got a RT and I was pretty happy. :) about an hour ago, the assistant editor tweeted me and asked if she could feature my photo! OF COURSE I said YES!

Shape magazine is my favorite mag because there's fitness & fashion in one! Plus, their recipes are fantastic.

So I'm really excited and anxious to get next months mag in the mail. AHHH!! Yay! :)
