Happy New Year Everyone! Almost everyone makes fitness part of their new year’s resolutions. I will say I am blessed with great metabolism and healthy eating habits. The past two years of my life have been dedicated to extremely intense fitness. In 2014, I decided I was going to compete in the Miss USA pageant system, which has a swimsuit portion. My new fitness regimen consisted of working out for at least two hours a day along with tons of cardio. That really isn’t too practical for everyday life. Now that I’m settled into my new job, in my new city, I am starting a new fitness resolution.
I would be lying if I say new activewear does not motivate me. Without a doubt, it does. There is nothing like getting new gear and wanting to wear it at the gym while you’re building new muscle. I’m partnering up with local boutique LABL VB to share a fun activewear look. Lindsay Bangel is the owner of the boutique in Virginia Beach and sells fun, fashionable fitness wear for all lifestyles. What I love about LABL VB activewear is it’s more fashion forward and funky, too. Plus, it’s not too traditional and is perfect for athleisure. For example, I have paired these leggings with sweaters and tops, threw on a leather jacket with my bag and they look great. The boutique sells brands including Koral (my entire outfit is from this line), Onzie, Terez, Vimmia, Alo Yoga and K-Dee.
My fitness goals for 2017 are pretty simple: maintain what I have and build some more muscle. I think a good amount of the muscle I spent 2014 and 2015 building have faded away at some point in 2016. I’d love to get some of that back, especially in my arms. I’m going to try to work out at least two or three times a week. Two times a week, I will do body weight exercises, including my favorite donkey kicks, push backs, and side lunges to build my booty, while also doing my favorite abs on fire workout. I also plan on doing about thirty to forty minutes of cardio about once or twice a week. I’m going to keep it simple for now.
