Fitness Q&A+ Favorites

Happy Monday babes, OMG the heat was real this past weekend!

I want to answer a couple questions based on my fitness routine because I have gotten a couple of DM’s through Instagram so I will share as much as I can plus share some of my current favorite athletic wear. Continue reading down below for more.

So let’s start off with my fitness routine, I like to workout 4-5 times a week. I do cardio 20-30 mins before I start lifting and usually consists of the stair master, elliptical and bike whenever I like to change it up.

As for lifting, I like to spread out my workouts. I do lower body twice a week so it’s extremely important to switch it up if you want gain muscle you MUST lift heavy. It’s all a process so keep in mind that everyone starts off somewhere but being consistent will really pay off and show you the results you want as long as you put in the effort all around.

I workout biceps and triceps one day, shoulders another day and back and chest together. YouTube is a great way to learn and follow exercises if you are beginning your fitness journey. I still follow videos when I want to learn new techniques and there’s so many ideas to follow that are super easy as well.

I like to incorporate abs at least 3 times a week which usually fall on the days I workout upper body so I spend about an hour and a half at the gym. Stretching is also a MUST to get your body ready before you workout. I like to use the foam roller for my leg days before and after my workout.

Food:

I LOVE FOOD!!! So I am constantly eating and snacking every 2-3 hours. I usually start my morning with coffee, spinach omelette, bacon and a hash brown with a side of avocado toast. I have chicken/meat with rice for lunch around 11-12 and have another meal around 2-3 but try to substitute the rice for veggies and then have dinner around 7-8. As for my snacks in between, I like to eat fruit or do a protein shake. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely eat what I want but all in moderation. I have my moments of weakness which are pizza and donuts because carbs are life lol BUT I can definitely say I cut out fast food such as Mc Donald’s, Burger King, Jack in the Box, etc. My top 3 places to eat out for my cheat meals are in n out, panda express and chipotle. LOL

I would say for the most part I do a good job, I don’t count calories, I’ve just learned what I have to cut back on and of course to drink plenty of water. I drink water with all of my meals.

As for the protein I take, I normally take whey protein but don’t have a specific brand. I am currently experimenting to see what goes well with my body. I love mixing my protein powder with banana, peanut butter and almond milk. I take c4 for my pre workout which I buy at Target for $20 but I only take it twice a week when I workout lower body.

I want to keep this information simple and straight to the point for what I do but if you have any questions or other tips you are looking for I am more than happy to answer. You can email me or send me a DM on Instagram.

  • Forever 21
  • Old Navy
  • TJ Maxx/ Marshall’s

I am all about shopping smart and I go crazy with sales so these are my top places to shop and they have so many cute items that are in style so definitely check it out.

 

 

CSUN Grad 2017

Guys I finally made it!!! I am graduating with my B.A in Sociology. This has been a long but well earned journey not only for myself but for my family as well and making them proud. I remember when I transferred to CSUN two years ago feeling butterflies in my stomach and not knowing what to expect. Now I’m here, with a degree and starting a new chapter in my life.

I am very excited for all new things to come, the possibilities are endless and I am also proud of myself for pushing through and never giving up. I’ve thought about this moment since I was a young girl and thinking of who I wanted to be in life. I have learned that it’s okay not to have all of the answers at once but the determination is what counts. I have never given up and I have to thank my family for that because they have always taught me continue pushing no matter what obstacles come my way.

My experience at CSUN will be something that I will carry on with me for the rest of my life and to all my peers and professors, thank you! Each class has been able to let me see the world in a whole new way. Everything I did has been worth it and as many may know, it takes long nights, little sleep and tons of stress to get the job done. I want to say to anyone out there going to school, keep pushing and remind yourself of your goals and dreams!

Dream BIG!

So cheers to the class of 2017 and making the change we want to see in the world.

Always,

Genesis Aguilar

T-Shirt dresses are my favorite because of course I live for comfort but it’s perfect to dress up or down so it’ll definitely come in handy to wear more often.

I wanted the first time to have more of a dressed up vibe and also went for a monochromatic look with a pop of color.

The material of this dress is stretchy and comfortable which is something I look for in every item that I wear.

I added my favorite duster coat via http://www.dresslily.com/?lkid=1528863

I got the perfect pair of denim booties via http://www.gojane.com/121760.html

and I have also linked the exact pair because they are AMAZING and they definitely turn heads anywhere you go!

I love the light blue shade and they are comfortable and the perfect accessory to any outfit!

Now, as I was going for a monochromatic look I had to wear this light pink choker that was given to me via https://www.instagram.com/ohhhbrigette/ through Instagram and I have shared some of her other chokers in previous blog posts as well.

We have partnered up for a giveaway so that YOU can win a choker as well.

Zaful Review: Activewear Leggings

Now this is my kind of style, I love anything that’s comfortable and when it comes to activewear I completely fall in love!

This is my everyday style because I’m always on the go not to mention that I live at the gym!
When I saw these leggings on
they just had to be mine!
I love the mesh details along with the white pop of color as well.
These leggings definitely shape my body and let me show off how I’ve been busting my ass in the gym!
LITERALLY! lol
They are stretchy and different from all of my other leggings, I would pick leggings over any other item because they are so comfortable.
Click the link above to get a pair now along with tons of other cute items!
I paired these leggings with my favorite black bralette because of the details on the front and went a little extra with my FAVORITE teddy coat!
This teddy coat has been my favorite for a couple of winters now and I remember getting it on sale at Macy’s for under $25 which was awesome!
I like how this outfit turned out, something sporty and chic and paired this look with my Nike’s to bring everything together.

Boho Dress+ Rainbow Shop Suede Booties

I am finally sharing this super cute dress c/o

with its amazing print and style!
I received this dress early last year and have actually worn it many times before but it’s the first time here on the blog!
The boho style is my favorite and slips on so effortlessly, so many great details in one item.
It’s almost that time for festival season again so I had to start a little early before all the madness hits!
Since the dress already has a mixture of prints, I kept all details black with my go to wide brim hat which made it throughout all of last year with so many different looks!
What can I say, you love what you love!
I do have a new accessory which is this beautiful double buckle belt that I got myself for Black Friday and it’s going to be PERFECT for the festival season as well!
As you all know, I have a deep obsession for shoes and I”m loving the sock booties so much lately!
I shared the chestnut colored ones recently on the blog so here are the burgundy ones.
I received these c/o
These booties are the perfect pop of color and also really comfortable to walk around in.
I am definitely going to be wearing these for the Spring season as well.
Enjoy the look!

Dresslily Review: Long Knit Cardigan


I am currently having sweater fever and this sweater c/o 

is so comfortable and cozy.

Knit sweaters are always my favorite to layer in and this one caught my eye because it’s a long line cardigan. 
This sweater has the perfect pop of color and I have been wearing it so much lately because of the thick material. 
Because of the longline style, I can still wear dresses or shorts underneath like I did for today’s post.

I have always been obsessed with shorts and I am here again with my go to pair of high waist shorts. I’m laughing on the inside because the last time I wore these shorts on the blog I said it would probably be the last time until next year but that obviously wasn’t the case.
It was a little warm out so I had to take advantage and this knit sweater definitely helped me out. This tan color is so easy to match so believe me when I tell you I have been wearing it non stop.
I decided to go casual this time around with no heels and kept it light and on the go.

I love that this cardigan comes with pockets as well because that’s a huge plus in my book 
to stay warm and it actually fits my phone. 
I have seen this sweater available in grey as well so go and check it out! 

I added my Mickey graphic tee along with my booties and favorite hat which came together rather quickly and so effortless. 

I have also been obsessing over backpacks because they obviously come in handy to keep  my hands free. 
I shared this backpack about a month ago and I love that it comes with so many compartments.
The black color is perfect and chic, it also comes in a leather material. 

With a bold lip and sunnies I was ready for my day ahead!
Enjoy the look!
