Workout Wednesday | Workout tips for beginners!

Hi guys! I'd like to start off this post by saying I am NOT AT ALL an expert on working out, but I've learned some tips over the last 2 years that helped me A LOT in the gym. Because of my career, I've been trying to become someone who lives a much healthier lifestyle, and that includes trying to become someone who works out very frequently. I'm not exactly there yet, but I'm slowly getting there - and I've learned some really valuable tips along the way that I thought I would share. Maybe it'll help anyone else out there trying to become more serious with their fitness!

After getting a trainer, I really began to "get it", if you will. So the majority of my tips are from my time working out with her, but also what I learned from my friends who work out DAILY and from numerous fitness blogs and such. These tips are probably going to sound super simple and not at all specific, but that's because they're for people like me; beginners who need that push to help get them in the right direction and make their transition into serious fitness that much easier! Here goes...

This is the tip I'm still struggling with, I'm not consistent at all. But truly it's the most important. I know for my body, if I haven't worked out for even 2 days, I start to see it regress backwards. Your muscles need consistency to see continuous change and progress! In other words, you can't half-ass it. You can't workout once a week and expect to see massive differences, it's a lifestyle. That being said though, everyone works at their own pace, so maybe one workout a week is where you start. But just remember it's about making it a lifestyle and making your health a priority. If you want to see progress, most people incorporate AT THE LEAST 2-3 workouts a week!

Web Wednesday | Stay With Me (Cover)

OKAY, HI! So, I stumbled upon a cover of "Love on Top" by a singer/songwriter named Leroy Sanchez a few years ago and listened to it incessantly. I thought his voice was SO GOOD. You could tell he was such a talented singer.

Fast forward to last night: I get a notification on my phone from Twitter saying ""@IAmLeroySanchez" followed @OfficialGNL". The name clicked and I freaked out because I remembered listening to that cover years ago. So I went back to his Youtube page and listened to the Beyoncé cover and some others.

His cover of Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" was beautiful, so I thought I'd share. Enjoy!

Leroy has a single called "Little Dancer" on iTunes so go check that out! & You can follow him on Twitter, subscribe to his Youtube channel, and like him on Facebook!

Have a great Wednesday!

Music Monday | FOUR

HELLO! I don’t even know where to begin with this weeks’ Music Monday. Today marks the release of One Direction’s fourth studio album, appropriately titled FOUR. 

They’ve been super excited to surprise people with their new sound, and they’ve succeeded. People who heard the album prior to it’s release have been pleasantly surprised (not being fans themselves). So obviously we were anxious to hear what the buzz was about.

Web Wednesday | True Love

This isn't REALLY a viral vid, it's Coldplay performing "True Love" off their album, Ghost Stories.  No, I didn't want to wait until #MusicMonday to share. And yes, I've cried every time I've watched it. The intimate setting, the atmosphere, the set, everything is perfect. When Will comes in on drums, it's magical. Also, Chris Martin's falsetto is my religion.
