400 Reps Let’s Go!

Sep 29, 2011 by

Today’s workout was a lot of fun and I went through it without taking any breaks between rounds. This type of workout I call ” The Sneak Upon You Later Workout “, it seems fairly easy to do cause I kept the reps pretty low ( this way you don’t hit failure ), but you will be very very sore about 2 hours after completing this workout. I was using my 8 lb medicine ball, but you can also use a dumbbell. This workout is a cardio mixed with upper body resistance, legs & buns, and of course :) abs. I will share my time at the end of the post.

More Beauty Secrets – Oa...

Sep 28, 2011 by

As I promised you in one of my earlier My Beauty Secrets post, I was going to share more of my beauty secrets with you over time ( and I have a lot ). In Russia most women still use only natural face masks because they work! Today I wanted to share some beauty secrets regarding oatmeal. Oatmeal has been used in beauty scrubs, face washes and skin creams for years, but I prefer to use it in it’s natural form. It is one of the best natural skin exfoliants and regular use of oatmeal as a face wash wilt help your face to rid of blackheads, pimples, skin irritations and early wrinkles and also even out your skin tone ( this is my own personal experience ).

Bam Bomber Workout

Sep 27, 2011 by

I am back with a new workout! Since it’s bee a week since I’ve worked out, I thought a great butt kicking cardio as well as some mix of resistance is exactly what I needed for my first workout back. This workout is a circuit and there is only 2 rounds, but don’t get too relaxed because by the end of the first round you will catching your breath. Besides a great cardio, this routine includes toning for the legs, butt, abs and a little bit of arms. The exercise that I picked for the upper body resistance is very challenging, and it’s one of my favorite exercises for toning shoulders and triceps.

Grape Seed Oil

Sep 25, 2011 by

A few weeks ago I discovered grape seed oil in the cooking section of my supermarket. I always know that this oil has been always used in anti-aging skin care and hair care, but it is also very popular in dietary use as well. This is a great alternative to other oils you might be using, it is very high in antioxidants and it is far less expensive. Here is a little info on what this wonderful oil is all about:

As you already know I’ve been following a new diet approach for the past few weeks, with the main key points of no refined sugars or refined grains. This recipe contains no such things :).

Get Ur Sexy On Workout

Sep 21, 2011 by

Today’s workout was only 21 minutes long interval training routine. I’ve been sick for about a week and today I felt a little better so I couldn’t wait to do my training. My body felt a little weak but I was able to give it my best :).
This routine was focused on the lower body, as well as core, shoulders, back. After my workout, I also did some jump rope skipping for 10 minutes, to prolong the effect of fat burn.

Light Cardio & Abs Workou...

Sep 16, 2011 by

Today’s workout I wanted to take it easy a little bit so I did some light and fun cardio routine. This type of training is good to do in between High Intensity Interval Training Workouts, because it gives your body time to recover and at the same time it keeps you moving ( we recover faster doing something better than nothing at all, it keeps the blood flow going ). This was a a very fun circuit and it went by pretty fast. I will share my time at the end of the post.

Let’s Do It! Workout

Sep 15, 2011 by

Todays workout is divided in 4 parts of High Intensity Interval Training, and in between each set there is a set of exercises for abs. I started out pretty good but half way through my workout I got exhausted and I literally dragged my self through the last two parts ( but I did it :) ). This workout was about 25 minutes long, but it felt a lot longer maybe because I really had to push my self and that took extra work!
