Here is my first post on my pageant progress. I wanted to let you all know how I am prepping physically for Mrs. Nebraska America 2015. As you all know, I am a vegan and I am also gluten free … Continue reading
Hey there! Happy Tuesday! This post is about my personal issue with women’s fitness inspiration sites and posts all over the internet. For awhile when I was really getting into fitness I thought it would be to my benefit to … Continue reading
Just wanted to quickly check in to let you know that my personal pinterest fitness challenge is going really well! I am definitely feeling the burn today after my leg day. My husband has even jumped aboard and is doing the 30 Day Plank Challenge with me. He’s being super supportive!
Anyway, I hope that if you are attempting this with that it’s going well for you. I can’t wait to report my end results!!
I am sure many of you like me have 100’s of pins on a fitness inspiration board or healthy living board. You might have filled it up last night planning for your new year’s resolutions to kick in today. I … Continue reading
Hey there! Tonight I am writing as I reflect on some very significant changes I have made in the past few weeks. I recently changed jobs, went vegan (you can read about that in my last post), decided to get healthy again and started working out on a regular basis, and I am pretty much a full on holistic hippie! That’s a lot if change going on. It has meant I must clean out the negative energy that surrounds me. This includes people. It is super hard to do but, it is a must if you want to live a positive life. We have to surround ourselves with people that have goals and stream sunlight and positivity! I have to say so far my mind is so clear and so focused for the first time in almost two years. I feel balanced and at peace. If this my 30’s I welcome my 40’s.
I am very excited to report that I have lost 10 pounds! Ten lbs!! I am really excited with this progress! Before I get too excited I still need to lose another 10.
How am I doing it you ask?
Well, I have been running a lot! Atleast 3-5 miles daily and then lifting weights. I have also been doing the Beach Babe DVD by the Tone It Up girls. I ordered it a few weeks ago and I am really enjoying! I don’t really have a set day of what I am going to do for a workout I just go with whatever I feel like doing more. It seems to be working better for me and keeping me from getting bored.
Most importantly it’s been my diet. I have been doing protein shakes with the Perfect Protein powder by the Tone It Up girls atleast once or twice a day. By the way, this protein powder is really good!! I will make a smoothie in the morning or at night for dinner. I have been eating more clean and my calories have been right where they need to be. 70% of your success is diet so, that is what I keep telling myself when I want to eat that cheeseburger or pizza.
I am feeling really great about this! I will keep you updated as I get closer to my goal.
Feel free to ask me any questions or if you need help staying motivated I would be happy to be your biggest cheerleader! Leave a comment below!
Sorry I haven’t wrote anything in a while! I have been super busy with wedding makeup season kicking in!
I first want to just let you know I am doing ok on my fitness challenge to myself. I will be honest it’s been hard. My kids just had their birthdays and it’s hard to eat healthy with all that yummy food around!! If I would have planned better I would have made it and made them into healthier versions of themselves. But, that didn’t happen because this time I was not organized and did everything last minute. I will be sure and not do that next time. Anyway, this week I am getting back on track and on top of my game! Please cheer me on it really helps!
I also wanted to take a minute and mention a few beauty finds I am loving at the moment. I recently bought some Nars products and I am obsessed! The Pro-Prime Skin Smoothing Face Prep as a foundation primer is amaze! This makes my makeup go on so smooth and last all day. I also recently purchased Nars Laguna bronzer. I know that everyone probably uses this already but, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and bought one. Turns out there is a reason it’s so popular, it’s awesome! Love that it’s not too orange or shiny. Just perfect. Onto some Bobbi Brown, I just ordered the Creamy Concealer kit to use under my eyes. It has a creamy concealer and a yellow based setting powder. I love this too! The powder is so light in texture that it doesn’t look cakey just sets perfectly while brightening at the same time. I also have always wanted to try Josie Maran’s Argan Oil. I bought the bronzing one because it’s summer and I love the bronze look. I love wearing this under my makeup for a subtle glow and on my arms and legs for some color. It’s really pretty and it’s benefiting my skin at the same time. Gotta love multi-purpose products!
