Happy Halloween – Get scary fit!

31 Oct

I know I just posted another workout video but couldn’t resist sharing this one.  Plus- it’s only 4 minutes long.   You have no excuses not to try it.

Zombie Workout!  I recommend listening to Thriller while you do this workout.  😛

Have a happy, fun and safe halloween!  -k

Fitness- 6 week 6 pack

17 Sep

I admit it,  I probably do have a workout DVD obsession.  My new favorite is the Jillian Michaels 6 week 6 pack series.  It’s pretty much two different workouts – level 1 and level 2.  They are fast paced and only take about 35 minutes.

Image

Don’t let the name fool you.  You will also be working your tush, arms and legs but with focus on your core and shredding body fat.  The other nice thing about this workout DVD is that Jillian Michaels does a nice job of showing you adjustments if you can’t do a certain move due to injury or aren’t at an advanced performance level.  I defiantly felt sore after doing these workouts and feel like they could give you results.  Now, bear in mind you won’t get a 6 pack in 6 weeks if you don’t adhere to a pretty strict diet.  But you can get an amazing workout and feel great.

Fitness- how to look and feel amazing.

5 Aug

So I kind of love fitness DVDs.  I was a gym member for years but found myself more motivated by working out at home.  DVDs seem so cheesy and 80’s but they really do work for me.

Image

Nice Legwarmers, Jane.

I have tried various ones – my go to’s are normally Shaun T Insanity or Zuzuka’s ZCut series.  Both of those are pretty intense programs so are not really great for beginners.

Today I decided to try out the Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred series because I spent most of the month of July sick with this really dumb cough and my fitness regimen fell to the wayside.

Image

So far I really like it – the duration is 25 minutes and in that time you do Cardio, Abs and Strength Training.  You don’t need any fancy equipment, just some dumbbells.  I also like that the series shows adjustments for people who might not be at the level to do polymetric moves or may have an injury of some kind.

Remember working out isn’t just for getting super skinny – but its good for both your mental and physical health.  If you really want to look and feel your best I highly recommend working out regularly.  Find something fun that you like to do and it won’t feel like such a pain.

Hilarious workouts for people who hate working out – Pole Dancing, Yoga Booty Ballet, Hip Hop abs, Roller skating, Zumba, or just have a dance party!

Review- Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo

30 Jul

I have used a few different dry shampoos.  My go-to has always been the Bumble and Bumble one as it is RED.  Amazing, right?  But it has been discontinued.

I received a sample of the Klorane dry shampoo in my July Birchbox and I didn’t realize how much I would end up loving it.

Image

I normally wash my hair every other day – but this has allowed me to be able to go 3 days.  Even during the summer and during a freaking heat wave.  AND all while driving a convertible.

The smell isn’t overwhelming, it sort of just smells clean and a bit like hairspray.  It absorbs oils really well but doesn’t leave white residue like some dry shampoos do.

I am almost out of my sample size so I think i’m going to commit and buy a full size bottle of this.  Unless anyone has any suggestions for me…

The top 4 beauty tips that don’t cost anything but we make excuses not to do them.

11 May

1. Drink plenty of water – Flushes toxins, hydrates and makes your feel better.  It also makes your skin look much better and helps prevent against water weight.  Skinny B*tch.  The general rule is 8 glasses at day but ideally women need 2.2 litters and Men roughly 3 liters.Image

2. Make healthy eating choices – duh.  If you eat like crap you will look and feel like crap.  If you want amazing hair and nails a nutrient rich diet is the way to go!

Image

3. Get enough sleep – There is really no magic number here as everyone is different.  Some studies say 7-8 hours.  Listen to your body.

Image

4. Exercise – Not only does it help you fit into your skinny jeans or that dress you love that you only wear after you had the stomach flu but it makes you feel great.  (and helps with sleep)  Being healthy makes you look healthy therefore you look better.
