I appreciate every ones questions, likes and compliments on my physique.
I've been asked numerous times on what I do to stay so fit especially after having two kids?!!
First and foremost growing up I was always on the slim/skinny side. hate me now, I know, I'm sorry but thanks to my parents and their awesome genes. I'm truly forever grateful and am just blessed in that area. But don't get be wrong, growing up I've had my share of insecurities and self doubt and finding things to wear that will be flattering on my body just as any one of your girls. Especially after having a baby! Its in our nature to point out the flaws in our body's first and wish for this and that second. Believe me I'm not perfect, I have flaws and wishes just like everyone else. How we appear on the outside is not as important as how we reflect our inside. But I do believe that when a woman is confident in her self image, otherwise she wouldn't be posting photos of herself in a bikini for the world to see. Then that already says she is happy and content in her physical appearance. (Speaking of myself here) And honestly I'm not showing off by all means.
I'm just confident and blessed and quite proud of myself to be a 25 year old mother of two boys and still can enjoy life to the fullest in a bikini!
I had my boys at a young age. My first at 21 and second at 24. So loosing that pregnancy weight and bouncing back to my normal self took some effort and toning but happened fairly quickly.
Now I'm not saying go have a baby while your still young! No not at all, remember Ive been married for 5 years already! Not everyone is in the same boat as I am. Time has changed. And there are women who are past 30 and are having babies and looking amazing! Now I'd like to know what their secret is? So Its just my opinion on having a baby at a younger age I believe will help you get back to shape quicker because your highly motivated and determined and still young and want to look great!
Whats your secret?
Haha, there is no secret. Just a girl who enjoys sports and working out.
I love to do cycling, running, lifting weights & hot yoga
Growing up middle/high school I played volleyball and was in track.
How do I manage to fit it in my busy schedule?
Umm..good question, I try to work out at least 3 times a week.
In the mornings when I take my son to preschool or sometimes evenings when I can get a sitter for a couple hours while I hit the gym. I like to take classes with friends because it makes time fly by fast and we spot each other. Meaning we take turns doing crunches and lifting weights.
Whats your diet consist of?
Besides the physical work out, I consider your daily diet very important. (You Are What you Eat)
I try to eat healthy and drink plenty of water. I'm really big on fruits and vegetables so I know I'm getting those nutrients and fiber daily. Being a month on this tropical Island you're surrounded by fresh papayas, mango's, coconuts, bananas, avocados and so on! So eat lots of fruits!!
I also enjoy juicing a lot. I think that's what helped me stay focused. I would juice every morning and then feel a lot of energy through out the day. Juicing is pretty cool and I think everyone should try it.
Otherwise I eat pretty much anything and everything! I love to try new foods all the time. I enjoy cooking new meals and I get fairy spoiled by my mama who brings us Russian meals all the time.
Also living in the urban city we like to call Portland, its hard not to eat out a lot. There are so many awesome restaurants with delicious food to try.
I think I eat a little but frequently..always snacking on some thing, like an apple, or cheese & crackers with good jams. Love Tea of course. I drink it every day.
