How-to stay on track this weekend

So it’s the weekend. You worked your ass off all week. Woke up early, ate healthy, worked out, stayed hydrated but now what? How do you kick ass all week to blow your diet on the weekend and regret it on Monday. It’s only natural to want to indulge. We’ve all been there! Try these little tips to stay on track and enjoy a “guilt-free” weekend!

Cocktails-  Yes, most of us look forward to having those cocktails after a long work week! It’s obvious that steering clear of alcoholic beverages is the healthier choice BUT to be honest everyone likes a few drinks during the weekend! If you’re in the mood to unwind, it’ll be ok! Try keeping it to one drink. Order something other than your usual. It’ll be easier for you not to go for a second round. Try getting something you can “babysit”.

REMEMBER, the more you drink the more you are more likely to munch! Eating out- I know, I know it sucks being the only one ordering a salad when everyone else is having pasta! Keep in mind, when girls eat out together they are more likely to order similar things. We know this is true! So don’t give in to someone else’s order. Be the first to order! Even then don’t feel obligated to stick to a salad. Most places these days have a “guilt-free” menu. Always remember– PORTION CONTROL!

Stay Active- If you decide to go on a weekend getaway and your hotel has a fitness center try waking up 30 min earlier to get a mini workout in. Trust me, you will feel more energized! If you’re not staying at a hotel try planning activities that will keep you active. Enjoy the breeze and go for a hike. Walk and shop (my fave)! There are so many different ways to keep active!

Keep Hydrated- Drink lots of water! It helps you feel full! Sometimes you may feel like you’re hungry but might just be dehydrated. Tricky, huh?! Keep water bottles with you. Not so hard to do! Hope these tips help!

XOXO, Yolie

20140619-191658-69418946.jpg
There’s no substitute for dieting and exercise, but the job has to get done! We have all done our research on what products and supplements to use to make our weight loss journey faster… and easier! Admit it, we all want overnight results! I know I do!

Recently, I started to notice all the hype with a certain topical fat reduction lotion.

FAT FADER.

Inch loss, cellulite reduction, tightens skin… MAGIC IN A BOTTLE!!

Apply to troubled areas like, butt, hips, legs, arms and abs. (I also apply this to my back.) Gently massage the lotion for 60-90 seconds in the morning or after you shower. Then again in the evening. You can also apply it before and after your workout.

Are you feeling it yet? I felt it working all day long! What I loved most about it was the results! Fast results! I saw a big difference in cellulite appearance on my legs and stomach.

FAT FADER is without a doubt the best toning lotion you will find!

*Excellent fat loss aid when combined with diet and exercise.

#FitFriday: Stadium Fat Burner

track workout2

So every now and then I like to switch things up and take my workout outside! This week I felt like getting out of the gym so I did most of my workouts at a local high school stadium. There are a lot of different exercises that can be done at a track & stadium. Especially those damn bleacher!!! They’re endless!!!  I would like to share an intense track & stadium workout with you. I did this yesterday and boy am I feeling it today! I will breakdown the workout below! Have fun my lovelies!

 

Break it Dooowwnn

Warm up: Jog 1 lap around the track (.25mi)

Right after the jog perform 100m walking lunges down the straight away.

Head to the bleachers.

Circuit 1: Using a bleacher bench do 12 body weight triceps dips, followed by 15 bicycle crunches, and 40 bodyweight deep squats. Sprint up the bleacher steps and walk back down. Twice. Perform this whole circuit 2 times.

Circuit 2: Do 40 pop squats (stand with feet hip width apart, go down into a squat position, pop up and land with feet closed together, then jump back to squat position) follow with 15 crunches, and 12 body  weight push-ups. Sprint up the bleachers and walk back down. Twice. Perform this circuit 2 times.

Finisher: 20 bleacher jumps (box jumps using a bleacher bench), followed by 25 calf raises, using the bleacher steps do step up leg lifts all the way up then walk back down (step up with the right leg and lift the left behind you, step up with the left and lift the right, and so on) do this twice. Afterwards, walk down to the track and perform 100m lunges.

Cool down: jog 1 lap
