Monthly Workout Routine and Nutrition Monthly Update – May 2018

easy cool yoga pose

I have been receiving many emails and DMs inquiring about my workout routine and eating regime. So, I’m really excited to introduce a new post that will be coming out every beginning of a new month, the Monthly Workout Routine, and Nutrition Update! If you ever want to know what it is that I do for my results, I will be posting my exact workout routine, eating habits, and monthly goals so that you always know exactly what I’m doing! I super excited about these posts because not only do I think it will be a great help for you, but also for me! I change up my routine constantly so I like documenting my journey so when I look back I know exactly what I did to get to where I am. It’s also going to (hopefully) keep me accountable to smash my goals because I will also be posting a Monthly Review post at the end of each month where I will write about what I liked or disliked in my regime that month and which goals I smashed and which  didn’t go so well (hopefully not to many). This month is staying relatively similar to last month except that I am seriously (more or less lol) tracking my macros and am incorporating a lot more cardio.

My Workout Routine:

Sunday (leg day) :

Start the week off the right way by killing your booty! Instead of using other people’s workouts like I did in April, I am going to do my own workout routines. So far I found the best results making my own routine instead of following another because I can adjust according to which exercises I feel the most activation and burn in and according to how busy my gym is! Basically, I start with squats because a big goal of mine is to improve my squat technique and weight, 2 more compound exercises, and then 2-3 glue focused exercises. No worries if this was confusing, I’m going to make a detailed post on how to structure your own leg days! I also try to end with 8 min of sprints.

Monday (triceps, shoulders, abs, and cardio:

Calisthenics are very important to me so on this day I like to start with doing 3 sets of 10 bar dips ( it took me soo long to get my first dip so I will make a How to Get Your First Dip video on Instagram @worldmywayy soon  ) then I follow that with 20-30 min of shoulder work and will end with a 10 min ab circuit and HIIT on for about 15 min.

Tuesday (Cardio and Powerflow/ Skills) :

At this point, it isn’t even half of the week yet my whole body is already aching to form the workouts from the previous days. So on Tuesday I just do cardio (either Stairmaster for 30 min) or treadmill for about 45 min. This isn’t very intense cardio, it does get me pretty sweaty but I’m mainly doing it to increase my endurance. After the cardio, I am going to do about 30 min of Powerflow and working on ninja skills! Basically, I call intense yoga Powerflow. I work mainly on inversions and all the cool yoga poses you may have seen instead actually stretching and doing slow yoga movements. I also work on some skills (as I like to call them) such as ninja jumps and kipups. I also like to jump rope for a bit, not for the cardio aspect but to work on some fancy footwork for agility and more endurance.

Wednesday (Leg day):

I do another leg session following a similar format as I do on Sunday.

Thursday (FUN day):

lip class at a parkour gym where we learn how to do back and front flips. It is a killer back and ab workout and I’m learning how to do a super cool ninja move at the same time so what’s not to love?

Friday (Push and Pull):

Last month I achieved a major goal of mine… I did a full pullup! So on this day, I am specifically going to do a lot of work on pull-up progressions and then some other favorite back exercise to maintain this strength and increase the number of pullups I can do. Then I do a pushup circuit (video coming soon on insta) that I am doing to build up the strength to do explosive pushups. End with a 10 min ab circuit and 15 minutes of HIIT.*

*It may seem like I’m doing HIIT too often, but I don’t have enough time to do it every day that I mentioned it in my schedule. Realistically I only have enough time to do it 2 times a week

Saturday:

Today should be a rest day but if I have time I am going to go for a jog around my neighborhood or do some yoga at home:)

FOOD:

In April, I started easing myself back into clean eating. And while my sweet tooth is still getting the better of me every so often, I’m pretty proud of my diet as of late. For the last week, I have been tracking my macros pretty accurately and it reminded me just how awesome tracking is. Honestly, I haven’t lost any weight but I don’t feel as bloated as I used to and I’m very guilty of overeating so tracking macros helps me determine how much food I actually need vs. how much I want to eat because it tastes good!

Monthly Goals (same as last month):

  • Land my first front flip on the ground
  • Actually running on the days I put cardio in instead of finding some dumb excuse like I usually do.
  • Increasing my dip strength to 3 sets of 12
  • Doing 3 pull-ups from a dead hang

Also wanted to let you know that I have signed up with CanFit Pro to get my Personal Training Specialist certification! So excited to be able to actually work with clients and help others achieve health, wellness, and their dream bodies 🙂

Comment your goals for May!

Monthly Workout Routine and Nutrition Update April 2018

I have been recieving many emails and DMs inquiring about my workout routine and eating regime. So, I’m really excited to introduce a new post that will be coming out every beginning of a new month, the Monthly Workout Routine and Nutrition Update! If you ever want to know what it is that I do for my results, I will be posting my exact workout routine, eating habits, and monthly goals so that you always know exactly what I’m doing! I super excited about these posts because not only do I think it will be a great help for you, but also for me! I change up my routine constantly so I like documenting my journey so when I look back I know exactly what I did to get to where I am. It’s also going to (hopefully) keep me accountable to smash my goals because I will also be posting a Monthly Review post at the end of each month where I will write about what I liked or disliked in my regime that month and which goals I smashed and which  didn’t go so well (hopefully not to many).

My Workout Routine:

Some people make their workout splits according to specific days (i.e. Monday is leg day) but my schedule is too random that I cannot set a specific day for a specific workout, instead I decide on the number of workouts I want to do for the week and then do them according to what fits my schedule. This month, I want to workout 5-6x a week with 2 days rest. Basically, my plan is to train legs 2x a week, upper body 2x a week, go to a flipping/parkour class 1x a week, and a boxing class 1x a week (optional), look below for my exact sample workout and more specifics.

*I choose 2 leg workouts to do for the whole month and then track my weight to see how I progress.

Day 1: * Tammy Hembrow Leg and Glute Workout

This is definitely my most favorite glute/ leg workout ever! Many leg workouts nowadays have weird unpractical movements because they are trying to stand out from the crowd but Tammy keeps simple and combines several simple compound moves with some specific glute movements for a great burn!  I will write down her full workout below because she doesn’t 🙂 Also, I want to work on my squat strength so I changed the first move.

5×5 reps squats

3×12 hip thrusts

3×12 step ups

3×12 hamstring curls

3×12 pull throughs

3×12 back extension

3×12 cable kickbacks

Finish with 8 min of sprints (30 sec on 30 sec off). I only do this sometimes when I have enough time but it is a great way to finish the workout!

Day 2: Upper body day 1 ( Triceps, Shoulders, and abs) Calisthenics are very important to me so on this day I like to start with doing 3 sets of 10 bar dips ( it took me soo long to get my first dip so I will make a How to Get Your First Dip video on instagram @worldmywayy soon  ) then I follow that with 20-30 min of shoulder work and will end with either abs (specifiaclly leg raises and flag practise) or some type of cardio depending on how I feel that day.

Day 3: Boxing class on Wednesday! I love it, it’s such an amazing and fun cardio strengthening workout. Great for those people like me who get bored running.

Day 4: Flip class on Thursday or Tuesday. It’s at a parkour gym where we learn how to do back and front flips. It is a killer back and ab workout and I’m learning how to do a super cool ninja move at the same time so what’s not to love?

Day 5: Whitney Simmons leg and glute workout.

I love Whitney’s workouts mainly because when she does supersets, she stays in the same place with the same equipment and doesn’t make you have to go from one end of the gym to another which is basically impossible to do if you have a busy gym.

This is the link to the workout, the full workout is written in the description.

Day 6: The second upper body day

This is a push and pull day (mainly focusing on back and skills). The pull part means that I am going to be a doing a lot of exercises where you pull towards you, so I am specifically going to do a lot of work on pull-up progressions and then some other favorite back exercise. Then I do a pushup circuit (video coming soon on insta) that I am doing to build up the strength to do explosive pushups. Then I will end with either running or abs.

That ends my workout routine, lets move on to food!

FOOD:

In March, I ate horribly! My eating was on point, I just did a cleanse and was tracking macros until I went on vacation and then it just went downhill from there. So in April, I plan to ease myself back into healthy eating by being really mindful when I eat. Asking questions such as: Do I really need this? How is this helping my body? and How will this make me feel after?  I am also starting to very loosely track macros again. Basically, I am just making sure that I get enough protein and that most of the fats I eat are healthy.

Monthly Goals:

  • Land my first front flip on the ground
  • Actually running on the days I put cardio in instead of finding some dumb excuse like I usually do.
  • Increasing my dip strength to 3 sets of 12
  • Doing 3 pull-ups from a dead hang

 

So that wraps up this month’s UPDATE! I hope you all enjoyed this and look for my upcoming post that reviews how this month went.

Comment your April goals!

How to set a S.M.A.R.T Goal

Ask yourself, is your goal smart? Do you know what it is specifically or how you will achieve it? One of my favorite quotes is, “Failing to plan, is planning to fail”. Using the S.M.A.R.T method for goal setting is an amazing way to provide structure to your goal so that you can achieve it efficiently!

I first came across S.M.A.R.T goals in my physical education class. We used it to set a specific goal where we outlined exactly how we will achieve that goal. This is the power of the S.M.A.R.T goal, it is very structured so it will help you identify exactly what you want to accomplish and will guide you to achieve your specific goal. While using the  S.M.A.R.T method to reach your goals is great for fitness related goals, you can actually use it for anything! I’m going to walk you through what a S.M.A.R.T  goal is, how to make one yourself, and how to stick to it!

S. Specific

The first step in setting a goal using the S.M.A.R.T method is to know exactly what your goal is. Many times, if your goal is too vague or broad it will either be too easy or too hard to accomplish. The more specific your goal is, the higher chance you have of achieving it. To identify and describe your goal, think of some of the Ws. Such as who, what, where, and why. If other people are involved in your goal, outline specifically who you need in order to reach your goal. You obviously need to explain what your goal is, so make sure to write that down ( remember the more specific the better)! Where is not always necessary but if it ties into your goal (eg. moving houses) make sure to include exactly where, in which location, you want to achieve your goal. And lastly, ask yourself why you are doing this. What will keep you motivated to keep pursuing this goal even when it gets difficult? This is very important to write as it is a vital part of seeing your S.M.A.R.T goal through from beginning to end.

M. Measurable

This may be the most important step in goal setting yet it is often overlooked. I’m very guilty of this, for example when I’m starting a new workout routine or diet regime, I’m too lazy to get a before and after pic so afterward have no idea if I actually see any improvements. So, in order to be able to evaluate if or when you have reached your goal, you need to be able to measure it. And I’m talking numbers! Set an exact dollar amount if it is a monetary related goal or lbs. kgs, and inches if it is a weight-loss goal. You may be inclined to skip this step, but trust me, the happiness you feel once you know you achieved your goal is worth it. 🙂

A.Attainable

This is when you have to get realistic about your goals and really hash out the nitty-gritty specifics. Firstly assess if your goal is attainable, do you have the right skills, tools, or even motivation that is needed. If it is not, what can you do to make it attainable? Do you have to learn a new skill? Attain some new equipment? Have a new mindset? Make sure the goal is reasonable for you. Whatever you need to to do to make your goal attainable, make sure you write it down in this section and complete those things so that you have nothing stopping you from reaching your goal.

R.Relevant

Think, is your goal relevant to you? Does it fit in with the grander scheme of things you are trying to achieve? Is it relevant to your business? SOmethime’s you may really want to achieve something but it isn’t actually that relevant and your time could be put towards more productive things.

T.Time-bound

Lastly, you have to set a deadline for your goal. Without having a set deadline for your goal, you won’t be as motivated to achieve it because you won’t have a fear of failing because you can always just think you’ll do it in the future. You need a set time to motivate you to actually take action right now.

 

Below, I attached an amazing graphic that I found on Pinterest that summarizes everything I have talked about above and gives examples, so make sure to check that out or pin it! Image result for smart goal example

I really hope you guys will see the power of having such a structured and therefore achievable goal!

Comment below what your goal is at the moment!

Cute Thanksgiving Outfit

Hey guys,

Is it just me or do you also feel like Thanksgiving just came out of nowhere! I can’t believe its already October, time flies… Not to complain, I mean pumpkin pie is one of my favorite desserts of all time and pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks are my weak spot! So I wanted to create a seasonal look for a family dinner or whatever it is you may do for Thanksgiving. I’m going to a cottage with my family and some family friends, what about you?

Fall Lifestyle Wishlist ft. UncommonGoods

You know those times when you go to a store intending to get just one item, but then you end up with a cart full of things! Well be warned, that is exactly what happened to me when I went on this website! I don’t know about you guys but personally I love cute decor and uncommon little things that you don’t even know you need until you see them!

This website is full of quirky, creative, and as the name states uncommon goods! Not only do they have some of the best gift options for women, men, and children alike, they are also very environmentally friendly. They have never sold anything made of leather, feathers or fur and try to include many products made out of recyclable materials. Another cool initiative that they offer is their Better To Give program, where at checkout you can choose a not-for profit to receive a $1 donation from Uncommongoods.

Here are a few things that are on my wish list!

Tea Drop Sampler

I started seeing these tea drops pop up occasionally on my feed around a few months ago and always thought they were so cool! Personally, I love tea! I drink it every single morning during the winter days so I would really love to try this out. The sampler set includes 5 drops each of: citrus ginger, vanilla white, rose earl grey, sweet peppermint, and matcha green tea. Tea is literally one of the easiest things to prepare but they managed to make it even easier! These drops simply dissolve in your water and you’re left with a perfect cup of tea.

On the Go Coffee Press

I heard about this brilliant invention just last weekend when I was at a university fair and somebody started bragging about how one of their students thought of this great idea! For all you coffee lovers, I think it is self explanatory why I want this!

Amazonite Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet

I fell in love with this bracelet the second I saw it in the beauty and wellness section of the site. At first I was confused as to why a bracelet would be in that section but then I read about the product and it all made sense. It turns out that not only is this a really pretty piece of jewelry but it is also a diffuser that you can carry around with you all day long! By putting incense on the porous lava rocks, it will act as a diffuser throughout the day. I thought this was really neat and is probably number 1 on my wishlist!

Pocket Tin Speaker

My beats pill is on its last string and is about to completely die on me at any moment so t this speaker would really come in handy. It’s also great for taking on the go as it is only the size of a packet of mints, so its really portable which is uncommon for most speakers.

Solar System Bath Bomb Set

Who doesn’t love bath bombs?! I thought this was an extremely cute gift idea for basically any girl. It is a 9 piece set (8 planets and the sun) and handmade.

These are only some of the cool items I found but there are hundreds more! So if you are ever unsure of what to get someone for a gift or are looking to treat yourself, I would highly recommend Uncommon Goods!

Uncommon Goods has kindly sponsored this post but all opinions and thoughts are 100% honest. I am so happy to have come across this website and can assure you that I will be visiting it regularly, especially around Christmas time!

The Guide to Leather Backpacks for School

For many years in the past and surely for many years to come, leather is a material that has been used in the fashion industry time and time again. And it’s no surprise why, leather is a one of a kind material. It is natural and is extremely strong and durable, not to mention stylish! Which makes leather an ideal pick for a backpack that you’ll be using almost everyday!

Like most other students, I’ve been sporting regular nylon backpacks (basically anything I could find in Staples). Nylon is more light weight, which is definitely an advantage but my bags would rarely last me a full year. Either they would rip, get extremely dirty, or simply go out of style! I’ve had a few backpacks that ripped after only a few months and I would have to buy a new one. One year I had a light blue Jansport backpack that went from blue to almost grey because of how dirty I got it from taking it to school everyday. Also, just think about all the different designs and patterns Jansport comes out with each year, these backpacks go out of style very quickly!

Leather on the other hand is an extremely durable material that can last up to 20 years with just a little bit of care, its as simple as occasionally using a damp cloth to wipe down the surface. Also, leather backpacks don’t go out of style, as leather is a fashion staple. Its actually the contrary, the more you wear it, the more it becomes soft and customized with a unique texture and pattern.

One reason why I haven’t thought about owning a leather backpack for school up until now is because I thought that the material is too stiff and heavy and would not be flexible or large enough be able to carry all my school supplies. It turns out that there are actually many leather backpacks that can hold a lot, and even if they seem a bit stiff at first, they will soften as you use them. Here is an interesting blog post specifically about leather backpacks for school.

So you like the idea of owning a leather backpack but not so much the price….

This is one of the main reasons why I haven’t bought a leather backpack earlier but I am changing my way of shopping to buying less quantity but better quality. It’s the same as what happens with all our closets, they are full yet we still claim to have nothing to wear that we like! Well that’s because we haven’t been thinking much about the long term, by investing in a leather backpack you will be happy with the same  beautiful backpack for years to come instead of ending up with 5 damaged backpacks (true story). If I had bought a good quality leather backpack in the beginning of high school, I actually would’ve saved money in the long run because I only bought 1 backpack instead of purchasing a new one each year. Not only is it a great investment, but leather bags are also becoming more affordable.

How to Style Comfy Sweaters! Part 2

Hey guys I hoped you liked Part 1 of this post, this is basically a continuation of that post, I hope you like it!

I don’t know about you, but I certainly have many many days where I wake up in the morning and all I feel is cold. It makes me not want to get out of bed or do anything! Then the thought of putting on a tight or revealing (basically uncomfortable) top to look fashionable makes me feel sick. All i want to do is not wear a bra, be warm and comfortable but still look presentable. On these days my huge comfy and fuzzy sweaters come in handy! I’ve had an obsession with sweaters lately and now they won’t fit in my closet anymore, whoops! Anyways here are a few different ways to style comfy sweaters without looking like you completely gave up on life ( even though you may feel that way inside) ;).

This post is going to made up of several different ootd looks put together but I will also give tips on ideas how to make theses outfits not so boring. You’ll see that they are all very simple, warm, and most importantly comfortable! If you want to see pictures of all my comfy sweaters, keep a look out for my Sweater Collection post coming up very soon!

img_3391

In this first outfit I am modeling a sweater vest. I find sweter vests to be really cute to make a rgular outfit into something a little bit more polished and business like. I paired it with my leather watch and tight black jeans. I decided to finish the outfit with black riding boots so that I can have a completely black bottom to not take away from the sweater vest and green blouse ensemble.

img_3411

I will be honest with you guys… I haven’t worn this sweater in a long time. This is because this yellowish-green color is very out of my comfort zone! But I made it my mission to create an outfit with this sweater that I would be willing to wear out, and not only did I complete the mission, but I actually love this outfit and it has become one of my staples! For anyone who has a sweater similar to this that is out of their comfort zone, I suggest you wear it and make that the statement piece of your outfit. This means the rest of your outfit should take to toning down the outfit a notch. In my outfit I paired this bright sweater with a dark wash jean and black uggs, about as simple as it gets! I accessorized this sweater with a turquoise necklace to take full advantage of the colors but depending on your own sweater you may just want to go accessory less.img_3488

This is definitely my coziest sweater, it’s made up of the softest material and is a turtle neck, perfect for those freezing days! To keep myself from dressing like my grandpa though, I paired the sweater with a light wash jean and trendy ankle boots to bring some chic into the outfit instead of just a cozy grandpa look! This way I’m extremely comfortable and warm but I look much more put together just because of the shoes! cozy-sweater-brown

This would probably be my favourite outfit. Here I am wearing it in the spring time but you can easliy make a few changes to it to make the outfit warmer. Simply unroll the jeans or if you have cufed jeans wear a pair of nice socks over to make a statement and keep your ankles and shins warm, a great example of this is roots wool socks. Also, I wold swap out this green jacket for my winter jacket and voila a winter outfit has formed!

I hope you guys liked these winter looks, watch out for a review on the Glamglow Super mud coming up in the following week!

aeo-sweater
Sweater: AEO | Leggings: Hyba | Shoes: Ugg

This is one of the simplest outfits but I love it so much! I love pairing leggings with sweaters because they are tight and form fitting which is completely opposite from sweaters. The ugg boots especially tied the whole look together because they are stylish but not very visible at the same time and they do not drag the eye to them, instead the sweater is the statement piece with nothing distracting the eye from it.

cozy-sweater
Sweater: H&M | Jeans: Urban Behavior | Shoes: Timberland

Here I went for a monochrome look. I paired my biggest black and white sweater with ripped jeans to add some more interest to the outfit. I really feel like the rips at the knee and some edge to the otherwise simple outfit. I finished the look off with matching white and grey socks peaking above my Timberlands. I chose the Timberlands instead one of my black pairs of shoes because I wanted to break up the monochrome a little bit and I find that they also add to the edginess of the outfit.

sorels
Sweater: Shrinking Violet | Leggings: Hyba | Shoes: Sorels

This outfit is one that I wear when I truly cannot get out of bed. I like this sweater because it is plain and can be paired with anything but it isn’t just a plain canvas, instead it has these cut-out patterns which automatically give the sweater some interest. I paired it with leggings again and wore my Sorels because they match the color scheme of the outfit perfectly, I especially love how the white fur ties in with the white sweater! Also, I’m not sure if you can tell in the picture but the leggings are more of a heather grey so there are specks of white that once again match the sweater.

styling-a-sweater
Sweater: Shrinking Violet| Jeans: Costa Blanca | Socks: Roots | Scarf: Forever 21 | Shoes: Sorels

Once again, I am wearing the white sweater as above but this time I paired it with jeans. I also accessorized with a burgundy scarf and roots socks peaking from the sorels to add some color to the outfit. I also love wearing my Talula burgundy mits for an even cozier and cute look!

As you guys can see, I love making simple outfits with little touches that add some extra interest or a pop of color to them! Tag me in your pictures if you want me to see some of your cozy sweater outfits!

I didn’t plan on making this a two-part series but it would be too long for only one post so look out for part two with more looks coming up next week!
