WHOLE BODY WORKOUT + What to do when you’re bored of eating clean…
Here is your new Monday video! It’s a longer 14 min total body workout that attacks the hips, waist, abs, arms, and butt! You will really love. Warning though. The first move will require a wee bit of coordination (or maybe just practice?) but I know you will be fine. It is a very fun routine. You know what else would be fun? Every time one of these new vids comes out, you should invite one of your friends or a member of your fam to try it with you as a challenge!! Would be great for bonding time!
Now! What do you do when you’re bored of eating clean? Do you stuff the same veggies and lean protein down your throat while your tastebuds scream for variety? I’ll tell you what I did. And it works.
Last week was full of salad since I was too busy to make anything else. And it got kinda old by Thursday! But you know what, I wasn’t going to grab for something unhealthy just because my tastebuds thought they wanted a different taste. Instead of changing my food (which I would have done if I had time to cook), I decided to change my environment. I packed up my salad and had a nice lunch in the park. YUP!!!! You bet I did. And guess what. My food actually tasted so much better! It was nice to relax outside and just indulge in the flavors of my food.
Sometimes you don’t have to eat out, you just have to eat…OUTSIDE!!! Hahaha. Like they say, “If you don’t like where you are, then move. You are not a tree.” Seriously give it a try next time you feel bored of your food.
Or if all else fails and you simply cannot have another meal without cheese and bread and fried goodness, then HAVE IT. I have one YOLO Meal a week and it’s something that’s really fun to look forward to. It keeps me sane. It keeps me excited. If you train hard and eat clean all week, you deserve to indulge! And please, DO NOT FEEL GUILTY!!! YOLO meals are necessary to keep you happy emotionally. And your emotional health is very related to your strength and motivation. Just remember…1 YOLO meal a week. Not 1 YOLO day!
I am also working on an EPIC secret project that you will find out about in a few weeks. Here I am with GloZell on a rooftop! Look at that lipstick!!!
This weekend I took some time to explore more of the outdoors. And when I say outdoors, I mean not inside my house. I saw animals, human beings, and lots of trees! I spent some time at the outdoor shopping center near me 🙂 They started decorating for the holidays already! Everything was sooooo sparkly, lit, up and magical!!! I loved it!! I also picked up someone’s dog and took a pic with him because he was soooooooooo cute!!! (Don’t worry, this is a normal Cassey reaction to doggies.) I wanted him so bad. He looked life a cheeto puff. OMG. I can’t have a dog now, but if I did, it’d sooooo be this one.
Also, wanted to show you one of my fave new shrug of the moment from Evolvefitwear! Had a mini shoot by this cool rainbow graffiti wall.
Then I took off into the sky.
Hehe. Now, the last thing I wanna share is my night life and my thoughts on drinking. Some of you guys have asked me about this. Well first of all, I don’t have a night life because I work all the time! BUT this weekend I ended up getting dressed up to go out and I must say it is very fun to put on heels and a fashion-y dress once in a while!! What’s not fun though is the alcohol. I don’t know if you guys know this about me but I don’t drink. And no, it is not for fitness reasons. Rather, I am HIGHLY allergic to alcohol. I feel dizzy, get sick, and sometimes…I go blind. In college, I used to think I had a problem and I couldn’t be cool because I couldn’t drink. People used to pressure me into trying this or that drink and when I refused, I felt bad. When I took a shot, I’d nearly pass out.
Today, I own the fact that I don’t drink and I actually really love that about myself. I don’t have to worry about empty calories or spending extra $. I let people know that it’s not for me and that’s that. I get a mixture of sparkling water and cranberry juice so I have something in my hand. Personally, I don’t need alcohol to loosen up and have fun…I can do it sober! I get high on life 🙂 And just so you know, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with drinking socially once in a while – just make sure you own the alcohol and that it doesn’t own you!
Alrighty POPsters! That was kinda my last week in review! Also, since many of you have been asking about the start date, I just wanna let you know that I am still releasing the 12 Week New Body Makeover Meal Plan on November 26th BUT you can start on December 1st ORRRRR January 1st. You’re welcome 🙂 After reading so many of your messages, I didn’t want to leave any of you feeling restricted throughout the holidays. So you now have a choice. I personally will still begin on Dec 1st, but I’ll be there for you in January too when you get started so do not worry! So get the journal now for yourself and as a holiday gift for a family member or friend who you want to start your 12 Week New Body Makeover with.
If you do end up getting the Fit Journal now, you will get the whole 12 weeks emailed to you on the 26th. Otherwise, I will release the secret passwords week by week if you want to obtain the plan that way.
Okie dokie that is all for now! Let me know how your weekend was and if you think people have seriously started to play X-mas songs wayyyyyy too early.
