A Few of My Favorite Things

From working out 6 days a week my body needs some TLC and here are my top 3 favorite things this week.
all 3

Dr. Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution

epson salt Dr. Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution is a must have. I work out 6 days a week my body is always sore, so I have always had that box of Epsom salt under my sink. Soaking my tired, achy muscles was just part of my regiment but I must say from the moment I opened up the bag of Dr. Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Relax and Relief the scent of mint filled the bathroom and my mood instantly shifted. I took a deep breath and smiled, it was no longer just my traditional Epsom Salt soaking, I have now entered my own personal spa. The aroma is so relaxing and once you slip into that hot tub you are in heaven. My muscles was so relaxed and my skin felt so smooth, I enjoyed my “me” time and look forward to my next spa date.

Dr. Teal’s can be found at Walmart.

EB5 Facial Treatment

eb5 This product has that good old fashion wrinkle cream feel that your mother use to use. It goes on smooth, it feels so creamy and thick, a little goes a long way. Just dap a little on your face and neck and you will know that EB5 is filled with anti-aging benefits for the modern day women. It contains many vitamins and soothing Comfrey root. You know I am the natural girl so it is important to me that this product is paraben-free, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, fragrance-free, hypo-allergenic and cruelty-free. Go get your jar today and reduce those wrinkles and fine line, restore moisture to dry aging skin. What are you waiting for? eb5.com

Josie Maran Coconut Water Eye Shadow

eye shadow Ladies, this eye shadow makes your eyes look and feels hydrated instantly. All you have to do is dap a tinge on your eyelids and then use your finger tips to smudge into the place you want. I loved the way my eyes had that shine, that beautiful pop. Absolutely refreshing! This is truly a must have, Josie Maran Coconut Water eye shadow is a staple in my makeup bag and it should be in yours too!    Josie Maran Cosmetics can be found at Sephora and sephora.com

Foodie or Gym Rat, Which are you?

gym ratThere are two types of people who live a healthy lifestyle: those who rely on their diet and hardly workout (I call them foodies), or those who rely on exercise and watch what they eat…sometimes (gym rat.)
I am truly a person who has to work out, (I guess I’m a gym rat) but I do eat clean and really do pay attention to what I put in my mouth but I must work out! I am so jealous of those skinny chicks who have a turkey sandwich for lunch and a salad for dinner, go to a yoga class and stays a size 2! Whatever, I say to you, whatever! I too will have a turkey sandwich for lunch and a salad for dinner but if I don’t go and run on that elliptical for 45 minutes I will be 5 sizes bigger.

Foodies-Festival-scenes-39 We all heard 80% Diet 20% exercise but is that true? Somewhat, It is more like 80% diet, 10% exercise and 10% genetics (you can’t count out your mother’s hips!) I have very conflicting genetics. I wish I could pick which is more prominent, but hey you have to work with what you got. On my mother’s side big and beautiful; on my father’s size; muscular and lean. I am a combo so I have to watch what I eat to maintain the weight and exercise to maintain my muscle. Solely watching what I eat along does me no good and only working out does not work for me either. Learning your body is type and what works best for you is the key.

The bottom line is I rely on both; eating well and working out. Eating well is very important and exercise is important also. Think of it this way a car needs gas and oil to run, it can’t run strictly on gas without oil nor oil without gas. Your body is a vehicle, so eat well AND workout! Let me know ….. are you a foodie or gym rat?

I’m Sick, do I Workout or Not?

sick pic

My mailbox is full of questions on…. “I am sick, can I still work out?” or “I am sick, should I still work out?” or “I am sick, what should I do to work out?” First of all, I want to commend all of you for your dedication to your fitness! So here are a few rules to remember when you are sick.

If you are sick from your neck up, work out.  Chest down and fever, sit down!  So, if you are achy, feeling like you got hit by a Mac truck and feverish your body is fighting an infection and needs it’s rest!!  (Not to mention you are contagious, so rest and let your body recoup).

If you have a headache, cold, runny nose, and that irritating sore throat, suck is up buttercup and get your work out on.  Make sure you wipe down your equipment before and after your workout so you don’t pass on your germs.  An average cold last 7 to 10 days, so you really could get away with just cardio 3 times a week. Keep in mind it really is an old wise tale that you can sweat out a cold. Jump on an elliptical, bike, or even a treadmill – it will keep you moving and keep you “on track” until your cold passes. You can do some resistance training, if you have the energy, but throttle back until your cold passes and then get back to your regular intensity!!!

Bottom line is, yes you can work out if you are sick from the neck up. Do cardio, light weights but most importantly listen to your body, if it needs rest, let it rest!
