Exercising and getting toned up

Bet that you can already tell from the title what today's post is going to be about.... As I have mentioned earlier in some previous post, I wanted to start a new chapter on the blog so I can share with you a couple of body image issues mine...

As you all know I have been working out for the past weeks, and I finally seeing the results... SO I wanted to share with you some tips...

So lets go straight a head to talk about the issue at hand... I don't want to share all my tips at once, so I tough I would share two things and tips that i actually tested to see if they actually work...
Ok, so for those of you that want to start toning up and getting healthy right now, what you need to do, is forget about the chips, candy and all the sugar... snacking the wrong snacks will only put you out shape... Ever since I moved from my parents, my eating habits have changed... With school and all the stress I basically didn't have time to cook proper meals... and even though Im a vegetarian, I was doing wrong to my body by snacking and eating fries ..

I remember sometimes I didn't have time to cook so I would just fry some fries or eat a whole bag of chips and that was basically what I would eat... Or sometimes after school me and my friend would go to McDonald and just order a fat strawberry milkshake with fries... Fries and milkshake are like heaven to me... But now I m paying for all those milkshakes and snacking...

So what Im trying to say is that the first thing you need to do, if you wanna get all figure back is watch what you put in to your month, cut the snacking, if you feel the need to take a snack you might be lacking some vitamins... In my case I think it has do to with me becoming lactose intolerant, its weird cuz when I was little I could drink milk like water, Now I can forget about it... I know it sounds lame but really drink some water and take an apple instead of taking that cookie =)

The second tip is working out related... I know its so hard to discipline your body to work out, the first week is super hard... After the first day your body might be a little bit sore, for not stretching  enough or simple because you are out of shape.. I know the feeling, trust me I've been there now... But I came up with a solution...  Instead of doing the hard work out you can dance! Go to your play list find a song that you can dance to and just turn up the volume and make yourself sweat, but really sweat... after a while you can incorporate the dancing with some crunches, squats and lounges or pick just one type of exercising and the rest of the exercising time you can spent it sweating and dance, Sweating makes your heart going and you cardio is up you are sweating and that is what is going to make you loose weight... Another fun thing to do is find and easy choreography on You Tube and learn it... This is a great way to work on your coordination, body figure and brain =)

Before I go I just wanted to say, that even though I am promoting for tone and healthy bodies, we are all beautiful, You are beautiful shape doesn't matter, just be happy but healthy!

Oh and one more thing, If you are going to try dancing and sweating or just a normal regular cardio pumping activities, dont forget to support the twins, for girls that have larger breast support is crucial! So dont forget your sports bra=)

Here are 2 fun choreographies for you to try:

Free spirit

Hi girls! I wanted to tell you how my toning up challenge is going...Well its going well and I have been noticing some differences... But I kinda want to really speed up the things a little bit more... I wanna get my flat belly and my slimmed legs, like right now and its frustrating cuz, it feels like I'm so close, but not close enough yet... I was eating salads for the past 2 weeks, and I saw the changes after like 3 days(for real), but now that I'm at my moms, my salad diet is basically out of the window... I still have one month left though, I was planing on reaching my goal before my birthday in June... So that means like I said I have one month left, to burn the extra calories.... 

So todays outfit was inspired by the "free spirit" Boho/hippie chic style, with a modern twist... Wearing long skirts for those that are not 5ft7 can be a little bit overwhelming, specially if you don't feel confident enough...  But I think if you feel good, why not give it a try...  I think its up to you to make your outfit look good... Don't let the cloth wear you! I recently got a comment about wearing tops that show up your belly, and yes I agree, this could be a break down for a person who is a little bit shorter like me, but I think if you are slim you can totally pull it off.. Im not trying to imply anything malicious, Im just saying that certain close look better when you are slim =)

Oh yeah if you guys wanna know, what kind of salads I do or what kind of exercise I do, write down a comment if you are curious to know and I will do a post about it... and maybe we can exchange some tips on how to get in shape in a healthy way =)

Happy Easter girls =)

It will be summer soon!

I'm sitting here alone and its just so empty here and  I miss him like crazy! His cloth still smell like him and it kinda feels like he is here mmm... baby can you come back soon so that you can take some awesome pictures of me?

I really cannot wait until its hot enough so I can wear cloth like this  
I must say I was a little bit concerned about this look.. I was afraid that for some of you,this look was going to be a little bit on the vulgar side... But now that I look at it... it doesnt look vulgar at all.. at least that is what I think... It just proves that you can be sexy and fashionable without being vulgar and tacky even if you have big breast =)

Not fitting in...

Hey guys, I recently woke up and as usual there is so much in my mind...Having so much stuff on my mind is making me hungry, hungry for a new start.... Ive been thinking about doing this for a very long time and I think today is the day that Im going to start... So let me just start by telling why I want to talk about this.. Some how I feel like this is going to help me and help others with this matter....

I dont ever how Im going to start, so I guess the smartest thing to do is to start from the beginning... I hit puberty pretty early, and my body started to change really really fast... My hips were getting wider and my chest started to grow a lot ... And pretty soon I needed to start to thing about bras and what not... My confidence level was really low.. I always tried to hide my self in oversizes tshirts and hunching my back like there was no tomorrow... 

My family started to notices some changes in my behavior, and they started to push me to let go of that fear... My biggest concern in life was " OMG i have huge breast( and they keep getting bigger) and people are going to start to look at me differently,,, which they did but, but mostly because I was so eager to hide myself, And now that I think about it people probably knew that I was hiding because of my breast,,,, I felt like a freak sometimes... Oh remember what my bitchy neighbor did for my birthday, she gave me the most see trough top ever, back then I didnt realize that she did it intensionally, back then I though the worst of me.... 

Another hard thing about me growing up and having larger breast were the boys and not only boys but men to, and that was the worst part... They started to give me attention and I didn't like it... it felt wrong and I was pretty much disgusted with my self, specially when one of my friends said... " He only likes you because of your boobs" I m not going to get into details about this particular thing, But I think most you know, what was up...

When I hit a certain age, I think 15... I changed,, and I didnt even realize, until my mom mentioned... She was right... I stopped wearing oversize t shirts to cover my breast and I started to appreciating what I had.... When I started high school I started to dance and my life really did change because I gained a little bit of confidence and my complex about my breast started to disappear... I really thank my mom for that she has always been there for me... The weird/sad part about this is that I still sometimes feel bad about my large breast... Specially when I see a top that I really like but I cannot wear, or when I see a cute bikini and I know that I could wear it.. But I just dont want to people look at me... So what I'm trying to say is that... my complex around them has gotten better, but sometimes is hard... Another thing that doesn't make things better is my hight, Im petite so when ever I gain a little bit of weight Its very noticeable... But sometimes I really dont care... 

Now that Ive been so much into fashion and cloth... Im always looking for new blogs, to get inspired by... but also because I had become a fashion blogg/holic... I love fashion blogs... The only bad part is that, well if you haven't notice... There is a specific type of girls that are basically taking over,,, Im talking about the model type/normal/chic and thin fashionista girl...  And since Im not a machine, Im a human... Its sad cuz for some reason, I started to compare myself to them, and sometimes this is blocking me and making me a little bit disappointed...  Like I mention before my breast were a big issue when I was growing up, but I had some weight and body  issues as well, which is not so weird cuz both problems were related... I gained a little bit of weight in Spain and the voices and the bad confidence is trying to get into my head again...And I want to put a end to it...

SO today I felt the need to share this with the rest of the world, to let it go and move on and the most importantly do something about it... I started to work out cuz I gain a little bit of weight in Spain, and I know that Ive mention it before... I just hope you guys dont take this the wrong way...  I work out because if I wanna look good and be healthy, for my body shape and height, the best way to look hot is to be tone up... when I get tone up my whole body looks great and I feel great--- SO I hope you guys dont take this in a wrong way...

SO I also got an idea that would help and others to stay motivated... I though I would share my personal advices about how you can be fashionable and look good and you can still look like you are not hiding anything... Well tip nr 1... Get a good bra... and try to get a new one every other month... Sometimes I dont follow this tips because sometimes I cannot afford a really good bra... but what I do is I get a good cheap one and I buy a new one a month later... So yeah my other tip is and I guess the first thing you need to do is stop hiding .... Thats for today, I m going to continued this by showing you show tips fashion wise and maybe even a little bit of exercise that you  guys can do.... If you guys have any questions dont, hesitate write me a email or just comment below... 

I feel so much better now that this out of my chest... Because now that, that is out of the way I feel like I can really move on... 
Oh I just wanted to add something::: 
Sometimes when u feel down, u want to analyze the whole thing by attacking the one thing that is bothering you in that specific momment... (so this is pretty much what happen to me this morning)... But yes Im very proud of who i am and body
