I woke up this morning, had some coffee and laced up my Nikes for a stroll around the city. It was by no means a cardio session, or even a power walk. In all reality, my heart rate probably never got over 100 bpm, but it was such a beautiful morning and I couldn’t think of a better way to begin the day.
I try to begin each day by giving thanks-whether religious, or just a believer in the power of the universe, I think that everyone can benefit by beginning each day with a thankful heart, and no better way than a morning outside.
-These pictures can’t even do it justice. It really is the most beautiful place. I am so blessed for this experience!
After my walk I took a trip to the grocery store and loaded up on veggies. I swear, Veggie Prep is never ending!!
Todays training was glutes, hamstrings and back:
Single leg deadlifts
One arm seated row
Lying hamstring curl
Reverse pec dec
Standing single hamstring curls
Lying single hamstring curls
This afternoon focused on girly maintenance…
I mixed up some of my homemade body scrub. I use coconut oil, lavender epsom salt and brown sugar. This time I also mixed in some healing oils that my friend gave me from Egypt. (Just a tip: I prefer to use the scrub prior to wetting the skin. It works as an amazing exfoliator and leaves the skin ridiculously soft and yummy 😉
I also applied a hair masque which is a mix of Redkens ‘All Soft’ conditioning masque and Redkens ‘time reset’ porosity filler with protein.
As for my skin, I have been a faithful user of Rodan and Fields for a few months now and love what it does for my skin!
For the rest of my evening I will be catching up on some reading and another episode of Breaking Bad 🙂
