In my life now

225851672_640

Hey everyone,  I often get questions about what I am in to now.  I get asked everything from what I am eating to what I am listening to.  So I thought it would be fun to do now (and ever so often) a post about what is going on in my life now. I have included links when possible if you want to check everything out.

Work: Work has been SO busy.  For those of you who don’t know I am a Spanish Teacher.  For those of you out there who are teachers, I have 5 different preps.  I am also taking my students on a service trip to Ecuador in June so I spend ALOT of time planning fundraisers.   If you would like to learn more about our trip click HERE

Music: While I listen to a wide variety of music and I listen to music in both English and Spanish daily,  Right now I am really enjoying La Invitacion by Pipe Bueno and Maluma. It is definitely one of my favorites now.

T.V.: While I never really watch live TV, I love watching shows while I do my cardio. It really helps to pass the time. Right now I am binge watching Six Feet Under on Amazon Prime. After watching Dexter I am such a fan of Michael C. Hall

Supplements: Right now I am using several supplements to not only keep me healthy but to also help me meet my goals.  I mam using Liquid multivitamins and B12 Supplement from 1st Step Pro Wellness.

I am using ISO-100 Protein.  It is definitely the best tasting protein that I have EVER tried. Right now I am drinking Fudge Brownie, but I have tried several and they are all so YUMMY!!

I have just started using a pre-workout. I don’t have a favorite of those yet, but as I try more I will let you know.  For now I am using Cellucor C4 in Icy Blue Razz. It is yummy and although I have only been using it for a few days I can definitely tell a difference in my workouts.

I am using BPI Roxylean. Which is my favorite thermogenic.

Food: While I keep my food pretty much the same.  The recent thing I have changed is incorporating my new Protein Brownie recipe.  It is so yummy and always fits in my macros.  For the most part I eat a low carb diet.  While I really miss the carbs in meals, this is so yummy that I don’t even noticed the lack of carbs.

Reading: Right now I am reading The Lean Life by Brooks Hollan. I just started it so I haven’t really formed an opinion on it yet.  I love easy reads and so far this seems to be one

What I want: I love fitness devices, and I love tracking numbers!! WHile I love my fitbit, I am dying to get a Fitbit Charge

Working out: Right now I am really concentrating on building shoulders.  I am not sure why but I just wished my shoulders looked better.   My most intense workout in my workout week is definitely shoulders. For a look at one of my recent shoulder workouts click HERE.

Anyone else using any of these products now?  I would love to hear what you think about them in the comments below!!

Supplements that I will be using for the Bodybuilding.com 200k Transformation Challenge and the Labrada Lean Body Challenge

When ever you start working out, you start to hear about supplements. You are bombarded by so many costly supplements that you HAVE to have.  If you stay with it long enough you will find that you will have your favorites.  Well here are my favorites that I will be using at some point (not necessarily of the whole challenge) during the Bodybuilding.com Transformation Challenge. I have included link to all of them in case you would like more information.

  • ISO-100 is one of my favorite proteins.  It is so tasty and I actually look forward to drinking it.  It is super low carb and the macros are spot on for what I am looking for in a protein powder.
  • I use 1st Step Pro Wellness Protein Powder when I am baking.  It, unlike most other protein powders, bakes up really well and doesn’t give your baked goods a weird after taste.  I will be using this for my clean cheats bi-weekly.
  • To keep my energy up all day I use 1st Step Pro Wellness B-12.  It comes in a liquid form so that makes it really easy for your body to absorb it.  It also taste yummy!
  • I don’t always use fat burner supplements but when I do I always use RoxyLean.  It is definitely the best I have found after trying MANY different brands
  • If I need a pick me up throughout the day I use Prolab Caffeine or 1st Step Pro Wellness B-12 Shots.  Both give me the added boost I need to make it through the day without keeping me awake.
  • It is so important that everyone take a multivitamin daily to ensure that you are getting all of the vitamins and minerals that you need. Right now I am taking 1st Step Pro Wellness Liquid Multivitamins. It is very tasty and easily absorbable by the body.

Hope this gives you some idea of where to start. The important thing about supplementation is to research and figure out what will help you meet your goals and go with it!
