Gym Playlist!

If you are a fitness freak like myself I’m almost sure you sit and shuffle your most favorite songs to get you through the workout! I mean of course sometimes I listen to motivational podcasts but I’m being honest here a go hard playlist can make the workout seem quicker and make you chase that pump a little harder. I am an Apple Music type of gal, although there’s nothing wrong with Spotify or Pandora my preference is definitely Apple Music. So I want to share

my most recent Play list with you guys! I wont type out all of the songs but I hope my screen shots work and can give your playlist a little twist. What kind of music gets you through your workout? Don’t be shy! Share your songs with me in the comments below!
 Let’s build an endless workout playlist for these killer workouts we do!

My Locker was broken into at Xsport Fitness Norridge

Hey everyone! I haven’t posted in a while as there has been SOOOO much going on. You all know I am a fitness freak. I love to work out and get my sweat on, well last week Thursday following my daily routine I dropped my daughter off at school and was super excited to hit the gym because

I made a killer leg workout I wanted to try. I got to the Xsport Fitness parked my car and walked into the locker room. I had my headphones and all my workout gadgets with me. Let me remind you I NEVER take a purse with my important documents in it. I had my passport and license and social security in it. I needed these documents for an appointment I had after the gym. I did have cash and of course some makeup and just things I felt I wanted to carry in my purse. Well while I was upstairs away from my locker I received two alerts that my chase debit card was being used. I immediately called Chase thinking I had dropped my debit card. I had it canceled but I was like over thinking how I could have possible dropped my card. Well I hurry to finish my workout because I thought maybe someone broke into my car. When I get to my locker I noticed my lock wasn’t on and no where to be found. At that moment my heart dropped. I felt a rush of tears because as I opened my locker my purse was missing. I panicked I had no clue what to do! How could this happen?? Ive been going to Xsport Fitness for years. I then contacted the manager Kamila who I must say I appreciate a lot because she was so helpful in identifying the person. I did contact Norridge police to make a police report. Officer Cortez who is also an amazing person for helping me and being so patient and answering my questions and hearing me rant no matter what did everything he could do to make sure everything was done in a timely manner . We know who the girl is and I even ran into her at the gym. She was there three times after I was robbed and possibly could have been ripping others off as well. I am now waiting on the “detectives” who I’m not so happy with because they are dragging their feet on arresting her. I did want to update my readers because I have been posting about it on social media. Ive been so lazy to go to the gym since this has happened I just feel such a negative energy now and its not cool. Im going to resume my normal activities but I hope this thief is caught and put behind bars

This is what she looks like:

Here is a video to my Facebook of when I saw her and recorded her at the gym: 

STIM-ELITE REVIEW!!!!

 
I have tried quite a few fat burners in my life and I must say when it comes to this one

I have NO complaints what so ever! When i purchased this I was worried I was going to get jitters and feel like I was on some type of drugs but nope! This product gives you a nice boost. the energy is a clean energy and you dont feel like you crash after! I take it right before my workout and WOW I am more focused than ever! On a scale of 1-10 I rate it a 20! Its that good!

Its time to get your body ready for summer!

Wouldnt you like to have that rockin body everyone looks at??
Hey loves! So as I was watching the snow fall today I started to think and normally the snow makes people lazy and not want to go out anywhere but it did the complete opposite for me! Its already mid January! Spring and summer are already around the corner so that means its time to start whipping back into shape and getting your body bikini ready! If any one is an expert in weight loss I would definitely say I have first hand experience because I was once a “BIG” girl but after following the steps I am going to provide you with I lost an incredible amount of weight and it has stayed off! I am no longer ashamed to share my story!


The First Step to losing weight!

The first step to losing weight involves getting your mind and body ready for the long journey ahead. Safe and long-term weight maintenance requires a lifetime commitment to a healthier lifestyle. Start your new lifestyle by analyzing your habits and determining where you want your weight loss to take you.

System Cleanse
Yes! I mean a colon cleanse I do this 4 times a year to eliminate toxic waste and help slim down my stomach! Go to your local health store like GNC or VitaminWorld and pick one up! Once your system is cleansed you can start a fresh diet by eating healthy. Add more vegetables,soup,salad and fruits and water into your diet!

Food and Exercise Diary

The very first step to losing weight involves determining what bad habits you have. Keeping a food and exercise diary can help you see your poor eating habits and track the amount of exercise you do each week. Write down everything you eat or drink throughout the day, including small bites taken while cooking. Your journal may help you identify emotional eating and other bad habits if you also write down how you felt when you ate, how full you were after eating, what you did during the meal and who you ate with. Continue keeping your journal throughout your weight loss to help you track progress and to remain accountable for your eating and exercise habits.
I have an app in my iphone that does all of this for me I just have to put in the information and it keeps track of my weight what I eat my calories etc. If you have a smart phone try downloading the app Lose IT! Trust me it helps!

Goals

Goals help you plan your weight loss step by step as you transition into a healthier lifestyle. Plan to reach your goal weight slowly through small weekly changes to your diet and exercise routine. Analyze your food and exercise diary to determine areas you can change. Set realistic targets that promote gradual changes to your lifestyle. Make your goals achievable. For instance, make aim to lose 1 lb. each week by exercising 30 minutes each day and reducing your portion sizes to one serving. Goals that aim for things like losing 10 lb. in one week tend to undermine your weight loss attempts.

Emotional Readiness

Major life distractions and emotional issues may interfere with your weight loss success. Common emotional barriers include marital stress, financial difficulties, illness, anxiety, depression, job stress and eating disorders. Try to eliminate emotional issues as part of your analysis of your weight loss readiness. Some issues, such as past eating disorders, anxiety and depression may need professional intervention.

Support

Support provides the final part of the analysis phase prior to starting weight loss. Think about the people in your life that may help or hinder your weight loss attempts. Temptation and setbacks occur frequently during weight loss. Make sure you have someone you can turn to for support and encouragement. If no one in your life can fulfill this role, consider joining a support group for weight loss or find ways to keep your motivation high.
