Body Boss Fitness Routine

So a lot of you guys know I love fitness. I love my yoga sunset sessions and I love cardio. I usually run or the elliptical three times a week alternating between the two. I’ve adding Body Boss into my routine on the days I don’t do cardio and I have to say at first the exercises were difficult, but after doing them for a few weeks it got a little easier each time.
Body Boss lays out the exercises and shows you the correct way to do each exercise. You follow the workout plan and as you keep doing it each week, I’ve noticed a difference in myself as I’ve done it. My abs are more defined which is great because summer is approaching us and that means bikini season!
Let me know your favorite workout exercises you do and which works best for you!

Log Out. Shut Down. Do Yoga.

Today I had another sunset yoga session and I just love yoga and the outdoors. It wasn’t too chilly out and the clear skies really give you a peaceful mindset.
I wore one of my favorite yoga outfits from Brazil Wear and I have to say I love the cutout design the best because it gives the look a fun twist. I love the mix of colors, even though it might be winter, who says you can’t wear pink?!
I love doing this yoga pose against the trees. It really gives you a nature feel. If you haven’t tried yoga it really does let you escape. You can focus on the outdoors and peacefulness it brings.

First Fitness Run Since…

As all of you already know I had a major operation on my ear about nine weeks ago. I haven’t been able to fully workout like I used to since my surgery. Especially since I love running, but it’s high impact on my ear. This week was the first run I did in nine weeks. I admit I was nervous I didn’t want to hurt my ear since the surgery and was a little scared running would hurt it. But it didn’t.
Granted I didn’t run like I usually do. I just a slow jog to get back into it and I was surprisingly not too bad. I was sore the next day, but my ear didn’t hurt which I was relieved about.
Now that winter is coming the outdoor runs might not be something I can always do, but it was a nice change to do!

Sometimes this is all you need…

Someday’s a moment of silence is all you need. A moment to stop and think about your day and just be able to reflect makes the world of difference.
For me that’s always when I’m doing yoga. I love doing yoga outdoors and hearing pure nature and just having a moment to myself to just to keep calm for the day. I just got this new yoga outfit from Brazil Wear and I couldn’t wait to wear it today. The yoga pant design is from their new line and the new fit is amazing! It’s so soft and isn’t constricting at all which makes yoga 10 times easier! 🙂 The top I got paired perfect with the yoga pants because I wear my yoga pants a little higher. It was so comfortable and I loved the open-back design of it too!
Where’s your favorite yoga spot? I think I just found mine! 😉

5 Minute Ab Routine

If you haven’t heard from Natalie Jill I definitely recommend checking her out on Facebook! Her page came up on my Facebook a few weeks ago and I decided to check-out her page and I’m so glad I did. Her videos and posts are amazing! She always has innovative exercises that actually do work and give you a fun exercise routine that breaks up my three-day a week cardio routine.

Usually I do a cardio 30 minute workout three times a week but I wanted to add something on my ‘off cardio days.’ I watched a few of her videos and they are amazing. The one today that I’m sharing is a new ab video I’ve tried. The thing I’m most self-conscious about is my core and I’ve stepped up doing sit-ups and other excises for myself.
I LOVE this video because it’s fast you are sore afterwards but it makes you feel better about yourself knowing your doing even a short workout. I like breaking up my workouts and trying new things!

Find Your Balance, Sunset Yoga Session

There’s nothing like a peaceful moment in your day. Whether it’s right when you wake up with your morning coffee in hand or when your out taking a walk.
For me it’s that peaceful yoga moment when I can take in the outdoors and just enjoy a peaceful moment. When I do yoga, especially sunset yoga it’s a time to just unwind and get away from the world.
You get to escape from the everyday duties your constantly thinking about and have a peaceful moment to yourself.
It gives you a chance to find your balance or in my case clear my thoughts and literally find my balance and change my focus to other things. I get to escape the worries or stresses in the day and just enjoy the outdoors.
I wore my new Brazil Wear yoga outfit and I lOVE the leggings. They are lightweight and I LOVE the mesh design!

What do YOU think of yoga?! Does it give you a quiet moment to just escape?
