Workout Wednesday


It all started a couple of months ago with the holidays 2015. Mini me was sleeping almost through the night, and I said it was time to start exercising…push myself even more on a regular basis with the Hourglass Workout (workout program created by Lyzabeth Lopez) Since I could no longer workout after work (4pm) like I used to (as I pick up mini me at school, play time, diner, bath, bedtime stories etc….) it was time for a change to workout out in the morning at 6am. It is very hard for me to go a day without exercising. When I am on a holiday, I always look for a 30 minutes or 1 hour me time to workout at the park or a backyard. After completing the Hourglass Workout 3 months challenge I kept pushing myself and 6 months later….today the results are in! I wanted to share a little bit of my progress (see pictures below…these are not the best pictures but I was having fun taking them).

I realize that Mom (aka moi) is much healthier, happier when she is able to get some extra push in. Staying in shape and having fun while doing it is what its all about. I would be lost without the Hourglass Workout. For more on HOurglass Workout visit:

Roll Away Injuries: The Benefits Of Using A Foam Roller


Foam rolling smooths and lengthens your muscles, and breaks up adhesions and scar tissue. Oh how I love foam roller!

It also helps your muscles relax and better blood circulation, which in turn speeds workout recovery and boosts performance. But don’t take my word for it. Grab a foam roller from because it has three different densities, offering a realistic massage. Oh how I love massage!

If you hit a sore spot, hold it there for 15 to 30 seconds—it’s the  tight area that needs special attention. Yes, foam rolling can be painful, but you need only 5 to 10 minutes to reap the benefit. Just as important as how you roll is when you roll: After a workout is best, followed by a stretch of the muscle. Take a look at our instagram page for the foam roller video here:

This helps your muscles return to the proper length and recover even faster because it can prevent the buildup of scar tissue.
