Anonymous asked What do you think about combining workout styles? Doing weights sometimes, bodyweight, sometimes, etc. If my main goal is to lose pounds, any workout that keeps me away from pizza is good, right?

I think they’re great! Cardio and workouts with your own body weight are excellent as you can pretty much do them anywhere. If you love nature, these can be done at a park, backyard, beach etc and you’re out of the same’ ole gym environment. Any of these are ideal! 👍

**Remember to treat yourself to a slice once in a while. You work hard and you’ve earned it. Never deprive yourself, just learn how to do it moderately 😉


Anonymous asked Were you ever an emotional eater? If so, how did you get away from it? What type of diet do you have now?

Oh man did I binge when I was sad, bored, depressed or any other emotion that would strike. Of course life isn’t perfect and emotions are inevitable but if I couldn’t shut them off I surely wasn’t going to eat/snack as I use to. Rather than eating a tub of ice cream with all the rich sweets I could find in my kitchen or large bag of chips I now keep fruit, veggies or many other healthy snacks to choose from. I don’t deprive myself though, I do have my guilty snacks from time to time just not how I use to.

I workout 5-6days a week but if necessary I take out my frustrations at the gym for a 2nd session that day.

I eat as clean as possible. I plan out my weekly meals. I eat lots of vegetables, chicken, oats, fruits etc and drinks lots of H20 😉

Every now and then I put the straightener away and rock my natural hair, can’t forget my roots. The “Simply Latina” look! Rock your locks ❤️
Today’s focus was upper body 💪 I’m extremely impatient, but I know that with consistency and determination results will come. Can’t wait to see what a month will bring….
🎉 Happy Thursday my Sexy Beasts 🎊These were my favorite little black shorts and I will no longer be able to wear them. My glutes and thighs no longer permit it, so I will have to go hunting for another more suitable pair. 

I will continue doing what I do even if it means I have to buy a whole new wardrobe once again LOL

Lower Body (Gluteus Maximus) Workout
