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.

New Nike Workout Gear

Now, those who know me well and follow along on Instagram and snapchat know that I live in workout gear on a daily basis. Even as I’m writing this post, I’m dressed in workout clothing because I”m hitting the gym soon. Workout gear is so comfortable and it definitely motivates me to achieve my goals.

Summer has arrived so that means going to the beach, pool days, long nights and tons of fun and of course you want to feel your best. The gym is extremely important to me and I make it a point to have that as one of my top priorities. Remember that excuses will always be there to stop you from doing something but if you just get up and go to the gym, I promise you’ll feel so amazing when you’re done. I recently started working full time and by the end of the day I feel so exhausted that all I want to do is go home and sleep. That’s where it’s easy to let excuses get in the way but I come straight home, have a snack and head straight to the gym. This is the lifestyle I choose to live by, I enjoy the process and seeing results is always encouraging and the determination is my favorite.

I am wearing my new Nike leggings that I got via Macy’s at a blogger event recently. They gave us a tour before the grand opening of Macy’s in Century City and when they said we were allowed to choose some items as a gift, I ran straight to the athletic department! It was a no brainer and these leggings are so comfortable, I love the colors and it’s definitely my style!

Enjoy the look!

Zaful 2 Piece Activewear Set

I couldn’t stay away too long from my activewear obsession, how cool is this two piece marble set via http://www.zaful.com/?lkid=25227  it’s total perfection!

I love prints that can stand out and this one is definitely unique, I am motivated now more than ever to hit the gym to keep achieving my goals. Summer will be here before you know it, have you taken the right steps to get that body you want?! Make that change today and leave the excuses behind, we all start somewhere and once you notice your results, there’s no turning back!

My favorite thing about getting new activewear is the motivation that comes along with it. This two piece set fits like a glove and I’m digging the mesh details, it’s chic and sporty. Racerback details are always a favorite of mine and the zipper detailing in the front is a plus. Whoever said casual wasn’t cute didn’t have the right activewear in their life. This style has become my go-to because it’s so comfortable and this is when I feel my best and most confident. I love a good black and white combo and with my favorite pair of Nike’s, my look was complete.
