Bikini Girl Diaries 3

bikini girl diaries

Happy Wednesday everyone! Hump day!! It is time for my weekly bikini girl diaries. “Cutting” so far has been super easy. I did really good on tracking everything this past week. I had a good check it. I didn’t lose any weight this week but thats okay.

Last week my weight was 137.4. This week my weight was 137.4

My supplements that I am currently taking are multivitamin, fish oil, CLA, L-Carnitine, Creatine, and Yohimbine. I don’t really want to take a fat burner right now. I have a blog post over why I take certain supplements that you can see here

I am still doing HIIT twice a week and working out 6 days with one “rest” day. My energy still feels great as I am still pretty high carb.

If you have any questions or anything you would like me to cover in the bikini series please let me know!

I have a question for you! How are your NY resolutions going? Are you seeing progress? How are you making sure you stick to your goals? Comment bellow and let me know!!

In my posts I am going to start including things like how I track, how to track alcohol, HIIT vs steady state cardio. So more informational stuff not just how cutting is going.

Some blog post coming up are… Valentine’s Day gift options for him & her, tips on recovering from being sore, Zaful Valentine’s Day Wishlist and bar cart reveal.

Today I am including a workout for you, it is a leg workout because who doesn’t love a good booty workout?

Shein Clothing Haul Review

Shein Clothing Haul Review

This was my first time buying from Shein & I was fairly surprised with how well everything was. I was skeptical because its just so cheap, like is it good quality or not, how long does it take to ship, what if it doesn’t fit?

Yes, it is super cheap which is always a plus. I bought 5 items for $55. That is really really good if you ask me. No its not the best quality but I bought it knowing that I probably would only have it for the season and it wouldn’t last until next year. I have heard it takes a while for you to receive it but I got it in 5-7 business days. I figured if it doesn’t fit, its so cheap I will find someone who wants it or donate it.

First thing I purchased from Shein was a lingerie night set. I always always read the reviews on what people have said. If it has mostly good views I took a chance and got it. This lingerie set was actually really cute & it was super silky as well.

Next was this sequin glitter lip print tee. This one is not the best quality. Its cute to throw on with a cardigan or some jean shorts in the summer. When summer comes I will either cut it or tie it up.

USA Pink hoodie was super cute. It wasn’t as thick as what I thought it was going to be. I was imagining a hoodie material. Still really cute though.Shein Clothing Haul Review

Black long sleeve fringe top-so fun. I was hoping this top was going to work but it wasn’t really working for me. It is not long enough at all and if I wear high waisted jeans with it then it pulls up every time I sit down so that I have to tuck it back in as soon as I stand up.

Last but not least my favorite of all the items I purchased was this cardigan. It is like a huge fuzzy, warm blanket. I am obsessed and probably going to wear it all the time. I truly, absolutely, love this cardigan. I recommend it 100%. Really great quality as well.

If it is your first time ordering from Shein I recommend reading some of the reviews to see what other people say about the clothing. But for the price, you can’t beat it. Some items were really good & had good quality & some didn’t.

I hope you enjoyed my review over Shein & let me know if you buy anything and what you think about it!

Bikini Girl Diaries 2

Want to know how my cut is going?

Bikini Girl Diaries is the name for my prep series!

So yesterday was my check in with Jami. My first week of the cut went great. I followed the plan & my workouts as planned.

My first week I weighed 138.6 and that was actually the highest I had weighed in a while…

When I weighed yesterday I was 137.4 which is great that I am losing weight! I am still doing HIIT cardio twice a week and have one off day. On my off day I try and still be active..that could be taking the dogs on a walk, stretching super good for 30-45 mins, or taking a yoga class.

We still have not discussed when I am going to do a show, I don’t want to rush it or anything, I want to be 100% ready.

She kept my macros the same for this week so I still have my high carb day Wednesday & Saturday and lower carb on the other 5 days.

Also, this picture I posted from this summer…take me back to the hot Texas heat where I can lay out everyday. I am truly missing it lol.

This week will go just as great, stay tuned for next weeks diaries. I have included a leg workout at the end of this. If you do it, let me know how it went!

Donkey Kickbacks 4X20 (Slow & Squeeze at the top) SS Jump Squats 4X15

Weighted walking lunges 4X15 (each leg) SS Stiff leg deadlifts 4X15

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you have an amazing day! I don’t know how you start off your morning but mine is ALWAYS the same thing, COFFEE. I have coffee every single morning. It is a must for me. If I don’t have my coffee within an hour of waking up I start getting a head ache and it’s just not fun lol. So today I have put together some of my most favorite coffee’s. I will also have a workout posted at the end of the blog post!

I want to start incorporating more workouts in my posts so if you don’t know what you want to do at the gym that day, you can screen shot it & do that workout! Start off your Monday with this killer shoulder workout at the end!

If you don’t follow @themacrobarista on instagram you are messing up. He posts all kinds of healthy starbucks recipes that are like half the calories/carbs/fats.  

My absolute go to starbucks drink is a grande blonde roast with 2 pumps sugar free mocha, 2 pumps sugar free vanilla, 1 stevia. Literally taste identical to a Mocha.

One of my favorites I got from @themacrobarista is the Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato. 90 Calories, 2g Protein, 11g Carbs, 4g Fat, 9g sugar. Literally AMAZING macros. Here is how you order it.

Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato:

1. Ask for a grande Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato.

2. Ask to *substitute FOUR (4) pumps of sugar free cinnamon dolce syrup

3. Ask for LIGHT caramel drizzle.

4. Ask for LIGHT cinnamon dolce topping.

Okay another amazing thing about @themacrobarista is that EVERYTHING is in MyFitnessPal. All you have to do is search Fit_with_coffee

My next favorite of @themacrobarista is the iced caramel macchiato. I mean the caramel macchiato is one of everyones favorite. 140 Calories, 1g Protein, 18g Carbs, 7g Fat, 17g Sugar

Iced Carmel Macchiato:

1. Ask for a grande iced caramel macchiato

2. Ask to substitute sugar free vanilla syrup

3. Ask for coconut milk

4. Ask for LIGHT caramel drizzle

If you track everything a great way is to bring your almond milk or your own creamer that you have measured out so you know exactly how much of milk or creamer that you have in your coffee so you are as accurate as possible.

I hope you enjoyed my go to coffee’s. Thanks to the wonderful @themacrobarista for sharing and coming up with all these amazing coffee’s!

Shoulder workout:

Dumbbell Shoulder Press 4X15 SS Dumbbell Side Lateral 4X15

Dumbbell Front Raise 4X15 SS Dumbbell Upright Row
