My New Diet Refinement

Sep 6, 2011 by

For the last couple of month’s I’ve been going a little crazy when it comes to eating too many snack bars :). Let’s just say I haven’t really been indulging a little on snack bars :), more like 4 or 5 sweet bars and half of large dark chocolate bar and tons of fruit – a day. When we eat this much sugar, our energy levels start to suffer ( mine especially ). I notice that I am having a hard time sleeping and a much harder time working out and much longer time recovering after my workouts.

My Beauty Rules And Secrets

Sep 5, 2011 by

Today I wanted to share some of my personal beauty rules and secrets that I live by. I believe that nature gives beauty to everyone, but it is up to us how we take care of it.

Growing up in Russia I was always around women who always had it all together and were put together beautifully. I guess it is something that’s part of our culture, women always dress up, have a perfect manicure and pedicure, even if they are going out to the supermarket for food. In Moscow you will not see a woman in sweat pants or flip flops, if you do, she must be sleep walking, LOL.

Show It Off Workout

Sep 3, 2011 by

Today’s workout is a combination of a circuit training and interval training cardio. In the first part of the routine you will be focusing on abs, booty and upper body. The second part is cardio. I am pretty sure you will be able to beat my time in the first part of the workout, because I was having quite a difficulty with the first exercise and trust me it’s a lot harder than it looks. So that exercise kind of dragged me down a bit. I didn’t even feel like working out today, but I pushed through anyway, but I felt incredible after I completed, and you will to :).

Love Your Body Workout

Sep 2, 2011 by

I had a whole different workout planned for today but since my new toy got here I had to change everything around – and it was fun! You don’t have to use the equipment I am using, you can substitute it with chairs, I will show you how :).

Today’s workout was at a very good pace, and it was 18 minutes long. I stayed very consistent with my reps. It’s very important that your reps don’t’ drop too low ( from first to last round ), if they do, shorten the max interval.

Organic Chicken Liver Benefits

Sep 1, 2011 by

The picture above might look like it’s something inappropriate, but don’t be fooled because it’s delicious chicken liver 🙂 and it is one of my favorite things to eat.

It was also one of my favorite things when I was growing up. In Russia it’s very common to eat liver, but I don’t think a lot of people here in US like it very much, at least I’ve never met anyone here who does. It is actually a very healthy food and it has a lot of nutrients and vitamins ( as long as you buy it organic ).
