    Happy Fit Friday Everyone! Nothing gets me ready for a fun weekend getaway (I am off to San Diego if you missed yesterday’s post here) like a zen yoga session in some new fitness apparel. Since moving to LA, I have toned down my style just a tad (I am still not giving up neon + heels haha) but began embracing more fitness apparel that can be worn as casual wear on the weekends (or even weekdays…my office is kind of awesome about that :p)! When RBX asked to send along their new active capris I said YES because what girl doesn’t love bright leggings that offer comfort, support and are the perfect match for her yoga mat 😉 Yes…it just so happened to be that these leggings matched my yoga mat because of course a gal matches her fitness apparel to her fitness equipment!

    What I love about these leggings is that they are so comfortable that I found myself wearing them not just to the gym, but to run errands, lounge around the house and I am even wearing them now as I am sitting here typing this post…these are my new active and lazy pants 😉 {PS You Can Buy Them 30% Off With Coupon Code: MM30 Valid Through August 31st!}

    They are available at Marika online as well as at Kohls and other fab department stores! Speaking of Kohls that brings me to my other newest fitness gear obsession…my brand new Running Gel Asics <3missyonmadison asics blueasics sneakers workoutwednesday kingcharlescavalier marikamagicslimmingleggings leggings marika gymclothes fitness longhairdontcare mirroredaviators brunette summerstyle

    I’m seriously obsessed with these bad boys. They are like walking or rather running on air. No longer do I get shin or foot pain after running for 30 minutes, I can keep going and going and I don’t feel a thing…they are a blessing in disguise, trust me, you need a pair! {Nordstrom has a great pair of Asics on sale now thanks to their Anniversary Sale}

    Now I’m off to the gym…while I love getting an extra workout from running with Charlie (who by the way is very social…follow him on instagram loves @CharlieTheKCCS…not kidding my sister maintains his account lol) My main workout is heading to Boot Camp classes either once or twice a day. It’s a mix of cardio and weight lifting and let me tell you after just one class your body is hurting….feel the burn baby 😉

    ‘Workout Wednesday’ – ‘Juicing’

    green-juice

    Ok, so the big health fad of ‘juicing’ seems to be making it’s way into the year 2014. The year 2013 was filled with models, celebrities, your neighbor down the street and just about anyone looking to kick start a healthy lifestyle all attributing it to ‘Juicing’.

    If you’ve been living under a rock for the past year and aren’t quite familiar with the term ‘Juicing’ let me explain…Basically, for a certain period time, it can be a day, 3 days, 5 days, 7 days or even 2 weeks, you don’t eat, but you drink approximately 6 pre-made juices a day as meal replacements in order to cleanse your system and give your body all the nutrients, fruits and vegetables your supposed to be getting on a daily basis, but you rarely do due to poor eating habits.

    Sounds like a reasonable idea? Now I haven’t tried this out yet for a few reasons, 1) Will I be able to function solely on drinking juice even if it is just for 3 days? I’m not too sure…2) Even if it cleanses my system for the 3 days I’m on it, what happens after?…3) If your someone who isn’t ready to commit to a ‘Juicing’ lifestyle, meaning I’m not prepared to do a cleanse every month…is there a point of even jumping in to doing one in the first place?

    Like with most things, I’m slightly skeptical when it comes to juicing. While I am all about trying to be healthy…although I can’t promise to always stick to it 100% of the time, is ‘Juicing’ truly good for you? Or is it simply one more fad that will be replaced in a year with the next health and weight loss breakthrough?

    I think for now I will try a method that has seemed to ring true time after time…working out and eating right. What about you?

    ‘WorkOut Wednesday’ – TRX

    A group of people doing suspension training at the gym.

    Happy ‘WorkOut Wednesday‘ Loves! It’s my first WorkOut Wednesday post of the New Year and like many of you… yes I cheated a little and fell off the gym wagon around the holidays, but I’m happy to get right back to my workout routine! In this edition of ‘WorkOut Wednesday‘ I’m sharing with you a little piece of gym equipment called the ‘TRX‘.

    The ‘TRX’ helps with suspension training. Basically, the ‘TRX’  gives you the ability to do all the exercises you normally do: squats, rows, bicep curls, pushups, burpees etc…except with an extra with a little extra twist. By suspending the body, the ‘TRX’ makes all these already ‘difficult’ exercises a little tougher by having your body suspended in stir-ups wear your either leaning towards or away from the wall in order to get that extra resistance.

    I personally like the ‘TRX’ for some moves like squats, curls, pushups, planking etc…sometimes however, practice makes perfect and it takes a long time to be able to balance in the ‘TRX’ and do the moves properly at the same time!

    Have you tried the ‘TRX’?

    WorkOut Wednesday – ‘Planking’

    plank
    Happy WorkOut Wednesday Everyone!

    Remember when ‘Planking’ was the ‘in’ thing all the cool kids were doing? Snapping pics of themselves ‘planking’ in odd locations and sharing it with their friends…well news flash, ‘Planking’ is still in, however not in the way it was made famous for!

    This WorkOut Wednesday is all about the power of the ‘plank’ position. Holding the plank position for 30-60 seconds in between spurts of cardio or after a run helps tighten your core, stabilize your muscles and of course help feel the burn in those abs!

    Want to do a spicier version of the traditional plank? To tackle your obliques, do a side plank like pictured below. If you can raise your arm up with weights even better, if not, stick to the basic!
