HOW TO- MESSY BUN

Friday, August 31, 2018

Happy Friday my lovely readers! 

I hope y'all had a wonderful week! This week was a slow one for us but we're glad its the weekend! This mama is about to enjoy some pizza and wine! This month, well September, I plan on cutting back on my treat days, just because I've been binge eating quite a bit since I got back home. I really want to push myself these next few months. On another note, I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one that dislikes Pumpkin Spice! I've never been fond of it, but gimme all the pumpkin candles and decor! 

This is totally off topic but I need some help y'all! Julian just turned 3 and he will pee in the potty but poop!? No ma'am! I don't know what it is, but he just does not want to poop in the potty! His done it maybe once or twice, his been half potty trained lol for about 6 months now. I don't know if I should pressure him to go, or just give him time, I don't know! Help a mama out! 


For today's post I'm going to be sharing with y'all my go-to messy bun! It's so easy! It does seem like a lot of steps but take in mind I'm taking pictures of every single step. I also uploaded a quick video to my IG stories, to help y'all out a little bit. Y'all know I'm not very good at explaining. Also, I love to do a fan bun too! They're so fun! But that'll be a post for another day! 

I love messy buns in the Fall! Especially when you wear a chunky sweater with a cute scarf, and boom, you add a bun, and you're good to go girlfriend! 

So let's begin....

This bun works best with dirty hair! This is third day hair, and y'all know I can't go more than two days, but I was feeling too lazy to wash my hair so here we are....lol 












Step 1: Add some dry shampoo, this one is by far my favorite! Add it to your roots and massage it in. Then you want to brush out your hair, I flip my hair forward because I feel like it adds more volume to the bun. 












Step 2: Then you're going to put your hair up as if you were doing a ponytail, and the higher the better! The higher the hair the closer to God, am I right?!










Step 3: Once you've done that, you're going to grab the "tail" of your hair and start wrapping it around your hand, your going to hold it in place with your thumb and index finger, while you wrap you hair your going to use your other three fingers to hold it in place. 










Also as you get towards the end you want to tuck the ends under your bun. 

Step 4: Once you have all your hair wrapped around, you're going to use one of the hair ties and wrap it around the bun, I'm able to go around twice, but it all depends on the thickness of your hair. 










You should end up with something like this...you could totally leave it like this, but it looks a little too "perfect" for me, I like my buns messy! Lol Sooo...











Step 5: Here all we're going to do is loosen it up a bit, and make it as big and fluffy as you'd like! I also take out some strands of hair, just to give it a little more of a messy look. 










Step 6: This last step is where you can either add some bobby pins to secure the bun as well as some hairspray or you can do what I'm doing, because I don't have any bobby pins or hairspray lol All I'm doing is adding another hair tie over the bun, and adjusting it once more. If you have super thick hair, this is a good tip, add another hair tie and ALSO use bobby pins and that bun ain't going nowhere girl! And then once you're done just play with it a little, to get it to your liking, and all done! I promise you it's super easy! 






I hope y'all enjoyed this post! Like I said I promise it's easy! Oh but please remember, no two messy buns are the same, I mean it's practically a miracle if they do. I'm lucky if I get it right on the first try!

FALL OUTFIT: OLIVE+LEOPARD

Monday, August 27, 2018

Happy Monday my lovely readers! 

I've had such a productive day so far, I woke up at 6:00am! Got my workout in, took a shower, got ready for the day, and I was even able to sip on my coffee while it was still HOT! WINNING! Oh and I had about 10 minutes to spare before Julian woke up, so I wrote in my journal and talked to the Lord. Talk about a productive morning, right? Fingers crossed that I'm able to keep it going. 



I am beyond excited for Fall! I can't wait for the cooler days, which I live in Texas so I might not get that until almost November haha! I'll hopefully start working on our wreath this week, finally! I'm thinking this year I want to make it kinda big and obnoxious, I found so many great ideas on Pinterest

I know we have quite a few more weeks before Fall is officially here, but I wanted to share this transitional outfit I put together! Like I said we live in Texas, so I really can't get away with wearing a light sweater because I will MELT in less than 5 minutes! Lol So this outfit will do! Everything I'm sharing is under $20! This whole outfit is under $50! AWESOME! 

This olive top is from Wal-Mart from the collection Time & Tru ($9) . The color just screams Fall! I love the little extra detail it has on the sleeves, ruffles & pearls! What else can a girl ask for! I bought it in a size small and it's still a bit flowy, which in my book, is always a plus. There's quite a few ways you can style this top. 

Y'all know I love Fashion Nova jeans, so I had to purchase a pair of black denim. These are the "Coraline High Rise Jeans-Black" ($20) and fit so good! Well except the length lol but I always have issues with that because I'm so short! 

I paired the whole look with these GORGEOUS leopard print heels! ($15) They're from JustFab , I purchased this pair and a black pair of heeled sandals for a total of $30! It's totally worth signing up for! As long as you remember to skip a month, so they won't charge your credit card. I'm definitely going to get so much use out of these, they're so comfy & go with so many things! 












OUTFIT DETAILS: 
OLIVE TOP- similar top , different color 
BLACK HIGH RISE JEAN
LEOPARD HEELS 

I hope y'all enjoyed this post! I can't wait to do more Fall posts! I hope y'all have a wonderful & productive week! Thank You for stopping by!

MY DAILY MAKEUP ROUTINE

Friday, August 24, 2018

Happy Friday my lovely readers! 

I want to keep my blog full of positivity but y’all this week has been hard. My moods and emotions have been all over the place, and I haven’t been the best mama to my sweet Julian. This mama just needs a little break sometimes ya know? I’m sure all you stay at home moms understand. But I will spill all my emotions on another post. My husband is off this weekend so fingers crossed, I get a little "me" time. 

Speaking of "me" time, for today’s post I wanted to share with y’all my Daily Makeup Routine! I do this quick look almost every day! I don’t apply foundation all the time, usually just when I’m shooting for my blog or other special occasions. You can check out my Full Coverage Makeup HERE 
This is definitely mommy friendly, it’s not only easy but it takes me under 10 minutes to complete. By no means am I a makeup artist, but I try, sometimes. I hope y’all enjoy & have a wonderful weekend! 

My skin type: So remember when I said I wasn’t an expert lol well I think my skin type is combination. I get oily around my nose and the center of my forehead, everything else stays pretty matte throughout the day. 




1) St. Ives Radiant Skin Scrub:  First things first, if you want a natural glow, I HIGHLY recommend this facial scrub! It’s amazing! It leaves my skin feeling so soft & glowing of course! I start off with this, and then apply my moisturizer, I haven’t found one that I love so that’s why I’m not sharing what I use lol But please send me your faves!  

2) E.L.F Poreless Primer: Then I apply my primer, this one isn’t my favorite, if you’ve read my previous makeup post, then you know my absolute fave is the Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser. I’m just trying to use this one up lol Just keeping it real here.  


3) Tarte Shape Tape Concealer: The star of this look is definitely this concealer! I just apply this under my eyes and lids with my Real Techniques Beauty sponge, (only $5)! I’ve been using this Emax Design Brush lately because my beauty sponge is pretty gross, I know time to get a new one! 

4) Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder  : I’ve hit pan on this, so you know it’s good! I think the whole Fit Me line is soo good! I apply this with this amazing Real Techniques Brush, I love this brush! It’s soft and just perfect to apply face powder. 

5) E.L.F Blush/Contour Duo: I then add some blush, another favorite! I’ve had this E.L.F stippling brush for years and it’s held up pretty good! 

6) Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition :  I love the highlights in this palette! I apply it using an angled brush, and I usually go a little heavy handed with the highlight! I mean, what can I say, I love to glow! Lol 

7) Maybelline Total Temptation Brow Pencil: I’m still working on the brows so don’t judge me! haha This brow pencil makes it so much easier though! I really just can’t get it right y’all! Some days I think they’re filled in too dark, some days they’re totally uneven, it’s just a hot mess! But practice makes perfect! 

8) L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara : And my FAVORITE step, MASCARA!!!! Can we all take a moment to thank the mascara God’s for creating such a wonderful thing! This one, hands down is my fave! Yes, I still love Lash Paradise but I love this one more! It adds length, and just the right amount of volume. I literally can’t leave the house without mascara, unless I’m going for a run or something. 

9) MAC & NYX Duo: Lastly, my next favorite thing, LIPSTICK! I’ve been using this combo, and ah it’s so good! It’s the perfect "nudish" color for my skin tone, and perfect for Fall! Which is in less than a month, but who’s counting right!? I’m wearing MAC "Amor Prohibido" & then just a dab of NYX Butter Gloss "Apple Dumpling" . It’s been my go-to! 

And that is my Daily Look! 




I hope y’all enjoyed this post! And THANK YOU so much for stopping by & your support! It means the world to me! 

7 Fitness Mistakes I Made

Monday, August 20, 2018

Happy Monday my lovely readers!

I hope your day is going good so far! Like every Monday, we went grocery shopping and made a quick stop at Target to pick up a few essentials. Now I'm prepping dinner. Please y'all! Send me some recipes, I think both my husband and I would appreciate it. 

I have some super exciting news that I can't wait to share with y'all! But it'll have to be in a couple of weeks! I know, such a tease! Lol And no baby #2 is not the news! haha maybe in a couple of YEARS. 

For today's post I wanted to share with y'all 7 Fitness Mistakes I Made, of course there is probably more but we'll leave it at 7. I always felt like I wasn't losing weight or showing results until about March or April, I saw pictures and realized my hard work was starting to pay off. Trust me, I know how it feels to not see any changes even though you're working your butt off! So I hope this post helps you out a little bit, and please know that sometimes I still make these mistakes. I hope y'all enjoy! 


1) Not Eating Enough- You do NOT have to starve yourself to lose weight! First of all it's not healthy at all! So please don't let anyone tell you not to eat! #foodislife I am so GUILTY of this! When I first started my journey, I always felt like if I ate I was going to get fat, so I would only eat twice a day, I would go to sleep hungry and wake up even hungrier! Now I eat 3 meals a day and I also snack throughout the day! Hello improvement! 

2) Eating Too Much- So this kinda goes back to number 1, you don't want to starve yourself but you also don't want to eat too much. And by this I mean getting extremely full, like when you're already a "good" full but then you see your child has a few nuggets left so you go for it and then end up feeling like crap lol maybe that's just me. But you get that point, listen to your body. 

3) Not Drinking Enough Water- Again another one that I'm super guilty off! Y'all I would literally only drink maybe 2 bottles of water a day. That is not enough! Lol Once I started drinking more water, I noticed I started to shed some pounds and I felt a lot better. And I know it's hard to drink water, it taste like nothing but it's so good for you! Make it fun and make some infused water! It's so good, my favorite is strawberry/lemon water or just plain lemon water! 

4) Not Having A Workout Plan- I love having a workout plan, it makes working out so much easier! I don't know about you, but I hate just "winging" it when it comes to my workout, it's hard enough to get up and do it, but to still have to figure out what I want to do! It's too much! So I ALWAYS  create my workout guide before the new month starts.  

5) Push Yourself- I know we like to stay in our comfort zone, but if you're working out and doing the same things over and over, you're probably not going to see results. Withing the last couple of months I started to lift a little heavier, nothing crazy but I'm definitely pushing myself, and I can see and feel the results! 

6) Working Out Too Much- Guilty! You don't want to do more than what your body can handle, baby steps! I promise it's worth it! 

7) Punishing Yourself- I debated whether or not to share this one, but I'm hoping it could help someone out! I did this to myself, I would eat pizza for lunch and be so harsh on myself and say things like "you NEED to go burn it off", "you NEED to workout RIGHT NOW", "you're going to get fat", "stop being such a cow", etc. I'm sure you get the point. Please don't speak to yourself like that! It's okay to reward yourself some days, it's okay to enjoy your favorite meal, it's all about BALANCE. 

------
I hope you enjoyed this post! And found it helpful! Please know that it's okay to take baby steps when it comes to your fitness journey. It'll be worth it at the end.

TOP 5 FAVORITE AB EXERCISES

Friday, August 17, 2018

Happy Friday my lovely readers! 


We are finally taking Julian to get his haircut today! When we were in North Carolina, grandpa took care of that but now that we're home this mama ain't risking it Lol I love taking him to Sharkey's and Julian loves it too, well until they start cutting his hair. He has ALWAYS disliked getting his haircut and really he's fine until he starts getting itchy from the hair fall outs and once he feels that it's over! My child is something else y'all! 

In other news, is anyone else excited to start putting up Fall decor? I am!! I've taken a few trips to Hobby Lobby and it's like Fall heaven in there! Julian is finally starting to show interest in Halloween, I mentioned it to him a few weeks ago, and I asked him what he wanted to be this year and he said "mama I wanna be Spiderman", and gosh his little face was full of excitement!




For today's post I wanted to share my Favorite Ab Exercises, I've also shared my Full Body Workout  (check it out HERE) I still have a long way to go as far as toning up my tummy area but these exercises have definitely helped so much! Of course making better & healthier eating choices has also helped immensely! I workout the tummy area twice a week, I use to do it every day but I've switched up my routine a little. I hope y'all enjoy this post! And again thank you so much for stopping by! 

1) Side Plank Oblique Crunch 
 

2) Russian Twist 
 

3) Mountain Climbers
 

4) Toe Touches
 

5) Leg Raises

7 WAYS TO STAY MOTIVATED

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Happy Tuesday my lovely readers!

I'm a day late posting on my blog but better late than never, right? I have been feeling so down these past few weeks and emotional so that's been quite a ride! I feel like I've lost some of my motivation and I would be lying if I told you it was easy to get back on track. It's hard y'all! I was doing so good once I got back home but now it's, I guess, catching up to me! 

Motivation is such an amazing thing, the world would be such a better place if we all spread positivity and motivation! I know, so cliche! But so true! 



So for today's post I wanted to share a 7 things I like to do to stay motivated! I am no "life expert" but these things have helped me to get my mind & motivation back on track! I hope y'all enjoy!

1) Remember why you started- This one is definitely the one that keeps me in check! Lol but really! Every time I want to give up on my goals whether it's a fitness goal, financial or a career goal, just remember why you started in the first place. For me, I wanted to lose weight and tone my body, I wanted this for myself because I didn't feel attractive, and it was affecting my mood, and I just wasn't in a good place, and I start to think back on all those things and it just motivates me to keep pushing forward. 

2) Who are you doing it for- Another way I stay motivated is I ask myself, who am I doing this for? My obvious and only answer is, my son. Again, feeling unattractive and moody all the time because I didn't feel good, affects my mood, and that affects my parenting. I want to always give Julian my best and if I didn't push myself forward I wouldn't be giving him that. 

3) Take before and after pictures- Pictures!! Take a ton of them!! Especially if you're on a fitness journey, it's AMAZING to look back at where you started and to look at yourself now! Trust me on this one! 

4) Unplug from social media- This is something that we should ALL be doing at least for an hour! And the best time to do it is first thing in the morning! Unplugging from social media is so refreshing, take some time off and focus on the real world, on your goals, write down whatever is on your mind, and jot down the things that motivate you, the things you can work on, etc! 

5) Surround yourself with motivation- Now that I'm officially an adult lol I know how important it is to surround yourself with the things and people that make you happy and motivate you to do better! Find these things and keep them close, you don't ever want to be around negativity, there is enough of that in this world. 

6) Don't let a bad start put you off- Just because you had a bad start DOES NOT mean you will end "bad", Learn from it and keep moving forward. I will give you a perfect example, last week I started  bad eating habits, I was having burgers, pizza, fries, day after day lol and my body was not liking it! But this week I told myself I will do better and get back on track, and so far I'm doing good!  You're going to have bad days, and just need to learn and move forward. 

7) Think of the end result- It ALWAYS motivates me to think about the end result, no matter what your goal is, it's always satisfying to daydream about the future, I love to imagine how happier I would feel and look if I keep working out and improve my eating habits, I love to imagine how my life would be like if I keep my blog up and give it my best! 

I hope y'all enjoyed this short but sweet post! There are so many other things that I do to keep me motivated so I will definitely be doing another post! Thank you so much for stopping by! And for your support, it means the world to me! 

OUTFITS OF THE WEEK

Wednesday, August 8, 2018

Happy Friday my lovely readers! 

I hope you all had a wonderful & productive week! This week was good for us! Although Julian has been very whiny, I'm not sure why! I thought maybe he was getting sick because that's usually how he starts off, but nope nothing yet (thank God). I'm sure it's the "threenager" stage lol But overall it was a good week. We've also been meaning to kick him out of our bed, but that hasn't happened yet...I know co-sleeping isn't "recommended" but I just didn't have the heart to make him sleep in his own bed. But now that his three, mama needs some space! I'll keep y'all updated on how that goes..




For today's post I'm going to be sharing my Outfits Of The Week! This is my first time creating one of these types of post so I'm pretty excited about it! Let me know if y'all like them! I usually try to get dressed up at least 3-4 days out of the week, as a stay at home mom I feel like staying in pj's all day makes me feel so unaccomplished and all over the place lol And it's also good to build a little confidence! 

I think my style is more of a casual, affordable & chic style. 

Side note: I am soooo ready for Fall! I have so many good outfits in my mind that I want to try to recreate! 

I hope y'all enjoy & again thank you for stopping by!


MONDAY 

Probably our favorite day of the week! It's grocery shopping day! Lol This is usually the day I put in a little more effort to my outfit because I'll be out in public lol #momlife! These shorts have been my go-to summer piece! They are just the PERFECT pair! (thank you sissy) Y'all know these mules are my fave! It was definitely a good buy because they're also going to be in for Fall! 





TUESDAY


Tuesday was a pretty slow day for us, we ended up going to Huntsville for some pizza! Oh and made a stop at Hobby Lobby! All the fall stuff is out & my heart is pretty dang excited! I did want to mention, all the shoes that I am wearing in these pictures are from justfab.com, I would totally recommend signing up for their VIP rewards, you can always skip a month if you don't find anything you like, or if it's just not in your budget that month! I love it! I have worn this dress multiple times this Summer, it's that good! 





WEDNESDAY

These are definitely my favorite type of outfits! Jeans & Tee! These jeans are super old! And the top is from Wal-Mart! Wal-Mart has stepped up their game! At least in the women's department lol I found some good pieces that I can't wait to share with y'all! 




THURSDAY 

Oh Thursday!  We were out running some errands and of course the car breaks down! And it was just Julian and I, and if you know me you know I panicked! Lol Thankfully one of my husband's co-workers saved the day! I think they've come to my rescue at least 3 times already since my husbands been a State Trooper  lol I feel like I'm "that wife" that's always in distress lol Another comfy & casual outfit of course! These white sneakers are $5! I would NEVER splurge on white shoes because I am the messiest person ever! 




FRIDAY

And we finally made it! Happy Friday! I'm currently sipping on a marg & watching Despicable Me for the tenth time (we've only had it for two days) I'm going to attempt to make a pineapple margarita, i'll let y'all know how that goes as well! I'll be completely honest, I just felt like get all dolled up today...if it makes ya feel good go for it! I LOVE this outfit! Now if I only had somewhere to go...lol 



I hope y'all enjoyed today's post! Thank you so much for your support! Have a wonderful & blessed weekend! 

WHAT I EAT IN A DAY- AUGUST 2018

Monday, August 6, 2018

Happy Monday my lovely readers! Thank you for stopping by! 

We had a very productive Monday! And by productive I mean groceries got done & our nap was taken lol. We attempted a trip to Hobby Lobby but Julian was not having it today! I mean he was crying bloody murder because I didn't want to buy an almost $30 T-Rex decoration! Life is tough y'all! Lol They did have a bunch of gorgeous Fall stuff out already! And Christmas stuff too but I do think that was a bit much, one step at a time. By the end of the day we grabbed some lunch and headed home. Julian took a super early nap so I had to give him some screen time so I could take a quick snooze, I was so tired y'all! 

For today's post I wanted to share with y'all What I Eat In A Day. 
 I do want to put this out there lol This may NOT seem like a lot of food to some people and WE all have different bodies, different size of tummies I think lol So like always LISTEN to your body and eat when you're hungry of course, and try your best to not over eat. I hate that feeling when your extremely full! Like not even the good full it's the nasty, why did I do this to myself full lol On another night, prior to this night we had a late dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings (my husbands favorite) so I woke up feeling full. When I have a late dinner, I break my fast around noon. This is called Intermittent Fasting. I don't do this on purpose, again I only do it when I have a late dinner and I'm still full the next morning. You basically fast for 16 hours and then you eat for the next 8 hours, or something like that you can CLICK HERE to learn more about it. 

I'll also add some videos so y'all can learn more about it. On a normal day I try to eat dinner no later than 6:30 because I hate going to bed full. Everyone is different, so this may work for you, I have heard that it's great for weight loss so maybe give it a try. Okay so I hope y'all enjoy this post and have a great week! If you have any questions or just want to chat feel free to message me on FB or IG or email me: coffeewithrosa@gmail.com

BREAKFAST: AVOCADO TOAST W/ CHEESE 
My absolute favorite go-to breakfast! It's soo good y'all! Most of the time i'll add an egg but I wasn't feeling it lol And of course my cup of coffee because hello #momlife! I haven't been able to let go of my coffee y'all it's just too hard! Have y'all tried the coconut creamer? Y'all it's sooo good! 



SNACK 1 & 2: WATERMELON & VEGGIE STRAWS! 
I LOVE watermelon! Especially with Tajin! Sooo good! When I was pregnant with Julian I use to eat Tajin on everything especially Pineapple and cucumbers! Oh my gosh!!! Makes me crave it now! I always brag about these chips so if you haven't tried them what are you doing? Lol They are soo good and pretty healthy, I also love to add Valentina Hot Sauce! 






DINNER: TACOS AHOGADOS! 
My husband has been on night shifts so he doesn't usually come home for dinner, so I cook simple things for Julian and I. I know this is not the healthiest okay lol but I just wanted to show y'all it's all about balance. I am not a cook at all, I actually got this recipe off Facebook somewhere. It's sooooo good!!!!!!  




DRINKS: AND NO I DON'T MEAN MARGARITAS! LOL LEMON WATER & REGULAR WATER
I have really been slacking on drinking water lately! I don't know what's going on with me. But I'm still trying to drink a gallon 3-4 times a week. I love lemon water! Pretty water as one of my favorite Youtubers likes to call it. My favorite is lemon and strawberries! Soo good! 






I also wanted to mention this awesome company TWISTSHAKE that sent me these sippy cups for Julian! The best thing about them is that you can make pretty water for your little ones! We tried lemon water for Julian (he's always sipping on mine) and he loved it. My favorite part is the sippy cup tags that crush fruit and berries to get natural fruit water! With my personal discount code coffeewithrosa, you save 20% on the entire pastel assortment and also the NEW LIMITED pearl collection. With the same code, you also get 60% on all neon!

FULL BODY WORKOUT 2018

Friday, August 3, 2018

Happy Friday my lovely readers!

I hope y'all had a wonderful and productive week! 

I have been slacking soo much this week! I barely got things done on my to-do list, and I really dislike feeling unaccomplished! lol This morning I was super cranky, moody and tired! (sorry babe) I blame it all on "that time of the month" But next week will be better! I'm not looking forward to the weekend too much though because our house is in desperate need of a deep clean! So that's what I'm going to be up to! Before I forget! If y'all have any good recommendations on a wood floor shiner please let me know! Our floors need a good shine! 

Okay...soo for today's post I'm going to be sharing my Go To Full Body Workout! I call it my Go To  because if I don't know what "exercises" to do one day this is what I always do lol This takes me a good 30 minutes to complete, so that's a plus! You don't need much equipment just maybe some weights and if you don't have any, water bottles will work or whatever you have at home. Friday's are my Full Body Workout day, if y'all would like to see a "workout routine" blog post let me know! P.S can you peep the cutie in some of the pictures? 




I go through all five exercises and repeat 3 times! As always make sure you workout at your own pace and only lift what you can. I also start off with 10 minutes of cardio before I begin..you can skip that if you'd like....


1) PUSH UP W/ MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS-10X3
Start out doing a regular push up and then finish it off with 4 mountain climbers then again push up and 4 mountain climbers.....




2) SQUAT W/ PRESS-15X3
Just as the name says, do a weighted squat and the press when you go up, make sure you tighten your booty when you go up. 




3) FORWARD LUNGE W/ TWIST-10 EACH SIDE X3 
This is one of my favorite exercises! Begin with a forward lunge and twist left to right and then start from beginning position again and repeat. I love this exercise because I can feel my core burning when I twist! Lol 




4) SIT UP-20X3
We all know what a sit up is lol so this one is pretty basic. I've been doing sit ups just about everyday since I started working out and y'all I swear this is one of the reasons my baby abs are coming in! lol 




5)JUMPING JACKS-45 SECONDSX3
And we're going to finish up with some jumping jacks just to get that heart rate up (I've always wanted to say that lol) and now start from the top and repeat 3 times! If you can do more than 3 circuits go for it girlfriend! 




I hope y'all enjoyed this post and if you try this workout out let me know! Or send me pics! Thank you again for stopping by! It means the world to me! Have a wonderful & blessed weekend!
