Stilettos Leg Workout

18 Nov

Hey Guys!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I had one full of 1st birthday parties and catch up’s! I am happy to say I got through a kid’s birthday party without having too much junk food! Just a few party pies (hey it’s an Aussie party tradition to have a party pie!) and just a teeny tiny bit of soda to feel like I wasn’t missing out. I had plenty of green smoothie before and afterwards so I alkalined my body to make up for the acidic food!

We are heading into the season of party’s and drink’s and many people put on weight and eat terribly around this time of year so I hope to bring you lots of tips to support you during this time.

For those that read my FB status last week – I am pimping out my blog with a new design which I am really excited about! I mentioned on FB it would happen last week but we are having a few technical issues. It should be up this week so if you visit often and the site is down for a brief moment – that is the reason!

Considering my blog is called Stilettos and Green Juice I couldn’t help but post this fun stiletto’s workout by Cassey  from Blogilates. Go on and try it – I know you want to! Maybe when no one is watching!

Kettlebell Workout from the Tone It Up Girls!

14 Nov

So often I watch people at the gym swing kettlebells with such bad form that I am sure they are going to throw their back out! You need to be really careful and ensure you’re back is always straight and that you aren’t using a kettle bell that is too heavy for you. I really struggle to keep a straight back so I ensure I always do my kettlebell swings in front of a mirror so that I can watch my form (something I really need to work on!)
If you’re new to kettlebells and have no idea what to then watch this video from the Tone It Up Girls. (love love love them!) You can go to their website for the printable version.

Victoria's Secret Angel Abs

8 Nov

Have I mentioned that I am totally in love with all things Victoria’s Secret? I get super excited for their annual parade. I love the glitter, the glam, the beautiful bodies and most importantly the angel wings!

I am even more obsessed with angels and would happily walk around every day with angel wings if my friends and family allowed it!

Women usually have two responses to the Victoria’s Secret Parade. They either feel like crap about their bodies and feel depressed, or they are in awe of the women, love the beauty and fun of the  parade and feel inspired to do some sit ups!

I don’t know about you but nothing inspires me more! But please, please remember my post this week about How To FEEL Good Naked. Only a very small percentage of women in this world will look like a Victoria’s Secret Model so all that is important is that you do your best to be as healthy as you can be and choose to love and be kind to yourself.

There are  women who see a beautiful  woman and instinctively try to tear them down and look for their faults so that they feel better about themselves. This is not cool! The only way to really see the beauty in yourself is to see the  beauty in other women. Women should be loving and supporting each other. It’s totally normal to feel a little jealous or down about your body but be aware that this is your ego talking and all things that come from the ego are illusions. The ego’s job is to separate us from love and keep us in fear based thoughts.

For those that want to work on their Victoria’s Secret Model Abs then check out Blogilates Ab workout. I have been doing this workout every day this week and it is a killer! Honestly it’s one of the best ab routines I have done. Also remember that abs are made in the kitchen so it’s vital that you are eating healthy meals and snacks.

Be kind to yourself and see the beauty in everyone.

Lots of light and angel love

The Best FREE Fitness Resources

4 Nov

Hey Guys!

I hope you are having an amazing weekend!

I have just discovered a really cool free resource and I had to let you know about it! If you are searching for fitness inspiration and really want to see results and change your body you have to take a look at fitness model Jennifer Nicole Lee’s online programmes and video’s.

Jennifer Nicole offers e-book’s that you can purchase but there are also  free resources for you if you sign up to her newsletter.

This is a really great full body workout that I am excited to try at my next gym session. You can also do it at home!

Pint version is here

BodyBuilder.com is a great resource and another awesome free programme from this website is Jamie Eason. Jamie has a free 12 week programme which outlines exactly what to eat and gives examples of how to train to completely transform your body, so check her out!

 

 

I am also totally in love and obsessed with Toneitup.com – These girls have amazing free workout videos and advice on their website. They do also sell a nutritional programme but it is a bit pricey and I am sure it’s nothing you can’t find online for free. If you are totally clueless about your diet than it might be worthwhile to buy. They are about to launch their holiday hottie series so be sure to sign up to their newsletter or find them on facebook.

I am in no way affiliated with Jennifer Nicole, Jamie or Tone It Up. I just want to share with you the great resources that I discover!

It’s so great to know you don’t have to spend a fortune to get fit!

Choose to feel amazing this week!

How to Work off the Halloween Sugar!

31 Oct

Happy Halloween!

I am an Aussie girl so I haven’t really grown up celebrating Halloween and always felt left out when I watched American TV shows. The good news is Halloween has started to make its way here and lots of people have started getting in the spirit. There’s even trick or treating in some streets! Although I have been caught out not having treats for the kids as I wasn’t prepared. No one told me that we’ve started trick or treating!

I walked into work to see some people dressed up which is kind of cool. This is Mr T’s 2nd outfit for the day! (I wasn’t allowed to reveal his name)

While Halloween is a time for the spirits to come out and play – the sugar-free folks may want to stay in as there is temptation everywhere!

So if you have indulged this Halloween the Tone It Up Girls (who by the way I am newly  obsessed with!) have the perfect Spooky workout!

So go on and indulge – this is the only time you will ever hear me say it’s ok to eat some sugar!

Enjoy!

Ps I’d love to hear if you did anything for Halloween! Live a comment and share!
