Organic Dandelion Root Tea – Kiss Me Organics!

Organic Dandelion Root Tea – With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Time for another review! Hopefully you guys aren’t too tired of my reviews by now, I know that lately my blog has been filled with so many… but I promise, just a few more reviews and then back to blogging about other things! Now, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned before… but I am not a fan of coffee. I mean, sure, if you follow me on Instagram you’ll see that I occasionally drink coffee – but that’s only if I have a long day ahead of me or if I have a weekend all to myself. I’ve heard plenty of horror stories about people who are so addicted to coffee (aka my sister) and they get headaches if they go a day without coffee. Oh the horror!  Cue to Kiss me Organics! They have an all natural & organic Dandelion Root Tea that is also infused with Hibiscus & Cinnamon! Now, I love love love tea! If you haven’t noticed, I’ve tried both the Herbalife Tea & Tiny Tea; but …

Nekter Juice Cleanse Review

 I got this as a gift for my birthday after hearing many people rave about it, thank you Cuong + Mai! I really didn’t know what to expect except it is pretty pricey, it is 48 dollars for this “classic cleanse”. Many of my friends go on the 3 day cleanse which is a whopping $144 dollars! But, for now – this one day cleanse is good enough.   A lot of work… Reading all the directions and preparation def scared me! It seemed like a lot of work and honestly, I just wanted to get it over with. Be warned, your cleanse will expire (my date was 8/18) so I had to do it before then. Make sure your fridge is cool and shake before drinking!!! The taste Classic Cleanse Drink 1 When I first drank the first sip, I said, “Wow, this isn’t TOO bad.” After drinking it halfway, I just didn’t want to drink it anymore! You can taste the sourness of the lime, and the cucumber and kale takes over most of the flavors. It …

Summer Contract !

I have a confession to make… I haven’t gone to the gym ever since school ended! Time for that to change! If you’re sitting on your ass feeling sorry for yourself, get up! Don’t complain, don’t whine… just do it. I decided to make a summer contract for my best friend and I to keep us on track. Grab your best friend and do this also! Of course, you can change the contract to cater to your needs. * Remember, do not cheat – You are only CHEATING YOURSELF by doing that.  Rules  1. Everytime you go to the gym you will get 1 point : Take a picture, send to the other person, and what you did for the day. The other person can request for you to take a picture with something ( to help with cheating).   2. A healthy meal is .5 points. This is only if you MADE this meal yourself.   3. Everytime you miss the gym it is two points. This counts for weekends, etc.   4. Everytime you go …

Summer Detox – SPA WATER

Good Morning Guys! I spent this morning making spa water! If you are following Fitness Gurus or Fitness Instagrams then you should see some pictures like this popping up once in a while.  Usually these water bottles are VOSS water bottles and in all the pictures they are filled with delicious fruits and even mint. I remember reading comments and people going, “Omg, Voss is so expensive!” So I thought, oh… do the water bottles come filled with fruits like that? But of course, now I know they don’t. The reason why people use VOSS is because the water bottles are huge ! I heard that you can get the water bottles from Marshalls or Ross and then just fill them up with veggies, I have yet to try it though. Anyway, whether you’re having fun at a picnic or enjoying the sand beneath your toes don’t forget to hydrate hydrate hydrate. Here are some easy and delightfully yummy Spa Water Inspirations! Strawberries: Strawberries taste delicious and can be found everywhere. They are a great source of Vitamin C, are antioxidants and prevent …

Step Up Exercises – Week 1

As you guys know, I just bought my step up and have already began experimenting with it!  I usually don’t use the step up at the gym but after using it for a few days – It gives me a really good workout. I’m sweating just five minutes in! I’m getting plenty of different workouts with it and I love it so much. The funniest thing about the step up, is the fact that when I use it – I pretend that I’m teaching a class.  It really works, trust me – try it one day. I tried it the other day and I was more motivated and did more exercises.  An example would be, “Come on ladies, just five more! Keep your arms straight and your legs strong! Feel that heart rate going up?!”  Anyway, these are the routines I’ll be doing for my first week. I consider it “Beginner” since I only do it for about 15 minutes at a time and I’m still pretty much out of shape. Please note that I am not a …

Finally got the Step-up!

  Yesterday, after eating an unhealthy meal of Korean BBQ (At red palace), my sister and I witnessed two girls dressed in nothing but their underwear. “What are they wearing?” My sister asked me, but I just shrugged. After two more minutes of driving down the street, we saw about 100 more students in nothing but their underwear and realized CSUF was having their undie run! I was so jealous of everyone because they all had nice bodies (sorry, perv moment.) So I was excited to come home and find out that my step up had arrived!!  I didn’t know how to use the step up until I took cardio class my sophmore year; and even then we didn’t do anything really crazy on it. I finally realized its true potential when we used it for cardio kickboxing, we would jump on it, run around it, step up – kick, and step down. We would (horribly) even do lunges on it. ahhh. I begged my sister to buy it for me a year ago, but she …

Work Out Equipment – Gold Gym’s Weighted Hula Hoop & Jump Rope

  My sister headed to Target to find her “Step Up” – something that she has come to love ever since her personal trainer made her do all sorts of things on it. Sadly, Target didn’t have it so we headed to Walmart. After skimming the extensive workout equipment, I saw a Gold Gym’s Weighted Jump Rope and wanted to buy it. My sister on the other hand, saw a Gold Gym’s weight Hula Hoop.   We ended up buying both items, Read below for a mini Review  + Pictures !

Things I’ve learned after gaining 30+ lbs

The heaviest I’ve ever been before this was I’d say 125, and that was after the “freshman 15”. I’m not shy at all about how much weight I’ve gained or even embarrassed because I had a great support system (more on that later). I was always slim throughout my life, thanks to genetics and a very tough exercise plan since I was always playing sports. But, when I gained all this weight I was very confused and sometimes even horrified at how big I had become. I was suddenly scared of trying on clothes, hated looking at myself in the mirror, and didn’t want to go out. I remember going into a fitting room last year and not being able to fit into the size S or even M. I was confused, “How could I not fit this? I swear… I wore something from here last month.” I texted my friends and told them that I had to buy a shirt that was size XL. “What? I didn’t realize you got to that point…” a friend texted back. But, …

Herbalife Review

Sorry for the horrible quality guys. Today, I will be reviewing Herbalife – a product that I used for three months. I am currently not using it at the moment. Anyway, before using Herbalife I had no idea what it was… now, it is very popular and some of my friends actually work as an independent merchandiser for Herbalife. There are also small stores that specifically make these smoothies, and there is one near CSULB called the green room if you guys are interested!  1. Herbalife Herbal Tea Concentrate – Raspberry 2. Herbalife Aloe Concentrate 3. Herbalife Protein Mix + Healthy Meal
