Weekend getaway

Sometimes you just need to unplug for a bit and spend it with the ones you love and experience what is right in your backyard! Fortunately for us, we had several waterfalls that we were able to travel to and swim in! We created a ton of lifelong memories with the family and it was SO much fun!

We stayed at the beautiful Mountain Inn and Suites and the staff was just amazing! Super clean hotel and everyone was so nice.

Did I eat more than I usually do?

YEP!

It wasn’t all healthy food, not in the least bit either. You see…when you are living a continuous healthy and active lifestyle, you can totally “afford” to splurge a bit here and there and not ruin your efforts along the way. Think about the bigger picture…eat right and live active MOST of the time. Then when situations arise and you want be a bit adventurous…it will not sabotage your efforts not even in the least bit. Remember every pound of muscle that you put on your body burns 50 calories even at complete rest, even during sleep, and weekend getaways ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Creating memories is priceless-pursue them and enjoy them. Stay active and eat according to your goals most of the time and then when you have full fat ice-cream with the family it will be a totally joyous event!

As always, feel free to ask me anything.

Reggaetronic 2017!

Reggaetronic 2017!
Myself and the Artist-DJ Rehab

I had the ULTIMATE pleasure of accompanying my favorite person ever to a killer music festival; Reaggaetronic! He happens to be one of the best DJ’s in the south and goes by the name of DJ Rehab. ๐Ÿ˜€

Why am I sharing this on a fitness related blog? The same reason why I showed you pictured of my trip to Hawaii! To show that you can still have an insanely FUN life while still retaining your health and fitness goals. Work hard play hard right? RIGHT. ๐Ÿ™‚

Reggaetronic 2017!
This picture represents years of setbacks, failures, and ultimately finding my own balance and success. Stay consistent!

Knowing that you will be in a bathing suit all day is great motivation in itself-but honestly PLEASE know you can still achieve goals and maintain them 365 DAYS A YEAR. Yes-summer IS a great motivating factor in starting new healthy habits. BUT-being a healthy human being truly only matters if you are working hard all year round. Don’t let the seasons of the year be your only motivating factor in your health and fitness. You can still look and feel your best in the dead of winter as well!

BACK TO THE FUN ON THIS DAY! This event was great, my boyfriend DJ’d to over 5,000 people all on boats! The stage was on a floating barge as well-and after he played his set we were able to relax and enjoy the day with lots of dancing, swimming, and RELAXING. We all need time to unwind and enjoy life from time to time, and we most certainly did just that.

So CHEERS to having BALANCE ย between your professional life, family, loved ones, and health-remember it’s all about trial and error. Find out what works for YOU, everyone’s schedule for a well balanced life is very different. Find what makes you feel good on the inside and out, and what brings you joy. Eventually you will find your sweet spot in all of it; and as always personal trainers are there to help you find that balance in regards to your health and fitness. Your health is always a priceless investment that will forever pay off immensely!

Hawaii, Fitness, Fun

I had the ultimate pleasure in accompanying my significant other (DJ REHAB of Rehab Events) to Hawaii this last week, as he was hired to DJ a wedding on Maui! I was honored to be invited and we definitely made the most of our trip! (and work!) ๐Ÿ™‚

My BF doing what he loves and is so amazing at in the beautiful facility on Maui known as the Hui House!

I have to be completely honest…I did not workout not ONE time while having the time of our lives! I mean-there was just too much fun to be had, and the food was shockingly healthy, so I didn’t feel too bad about it. The reason why I didn’t feel bad about it is because I KNEW going in that I had been absolutely consistent with my training and nutrition leading up to the trip…I have to lead by example of course! Here’s the thing-when you have actual healthy muscle mass on your body that you have worked very hard for…events like this that happen every now and than can happen and barely have a negative effect on you.

Did you know that one pound of muscle will burn 50 calories a day just sitting doing nothing? ย If you gain 10 pounds of muscle, you would therefore gain an additional 500 calories per day metabolic boost just sitting around.

!!!

I hydrated as much as I could, I DEFINITELY indulged, and I RESTED. When fitness is apart of your lifestyle and you LIVE it day in and day out-your body can handle rest periods like this! It’s a wonderful thing, and in the end if you are super active, your body will appreciate the break and come back stronger. It’s all about BALANCE!

If you are not super active-how much of an incentive is this?! Lift those heavy weights, hire a trainer, change your mind set into that of I CAN DO THIS, and you can absolutely make this your lifestyle, AND HAVE SO MUCH DAMN FUN!

Work hard…play harder. ๐Ÿ˜€

MAHALO! (Thank you in Hawaii speak) ๐Ÿ˜‰

We definitely enjoyed our time working and playing, and you can too! Hire a trainer, learn and you can quite literally change your life for the better.

As Always, I’m here for all of your health and fitness needs. Shoot me a message!
