Oh hey!! Paige here to share a little update on my workout routine! I've been working hard (for me) on my glutes and am starting to see a big difference! Yay! My workouts haven't been too crazy or hard (hence the blog title), but I AM starting to see results so I wanted to share what I've been doing with you guys 3 times a week! Read to the bottom for a (short) video :)
A couple months ago when we were in California (as you probably know from our Instagram overload) and I had this HORID pic taken of me from the back (insert crying emoji here). Yep, thats me. The heifer in the middle! Haha jk. Sort of.
ANYWAYS, after many hours researching how to get rid of cottage and finding out that there's really no quick fix out there (and I can't afford to try all these crazy treatments that claim to work) I decided to kick my booty into gear and get to WORK! But, I'm kind of lazy. So, for me that meant just doing like two of the best booty/leg workouts I know 3x a week ;) lol
This is not some random workout I put together to post about, or some scientifically proven cottage cheese blaster, IT'S WHAT I'VE ACTUALLY BEEN DOING. RELIGIOUSLY for about a month now. And it's working!
As I mentioned in our Instagram, I've also been pretty good about eating healthy, and have been using recipes from my friend Carli's meal plan, along with some of our own. We'll be doing a giveaway soon for her meal plan on Insta so stay tuned! I've also been trying to take MJ on walks everyday around our neighborhood to get my cardio in, but guys, nothing is going to blast fat or burn more calories than WEIGHTS so...
Here's the Workout:
1. 10 weighted bench step overs - each leg
2. 10 weighted one legged deadlifts - each leg
1. 10 weighted lunges
2. 10 weighted reverse lunges
3. 10 weighted suitcase squats
1. 10 weighted step ups - each leg
2. 10 crossover lunges - each leg
Below is a little video tutorial of how to do each of these moves! My outfit in the video and top picture is from Albion Fit, and my bikini is 50% off and linked at the bottom of this post! :)
Happy booty busting!
Hey guys! We've posted about our Albion Fit workout gear before, but wanted to share some of our favorite swim suits from them as well because they're so cute and flattering! :)
The cuts we're wearing here are two of our favorites, but we also love their high waisted bikini bottoms!
Wherever you are in your fitness journey, you can be sure you'll be able to find a flattering suit from Albion Fit. Their cuts are modest, cute, original, and great for every shape! Shop our three swimsuits linked at the bottom of the post, and use code SALTY15 for 15% off anything at AlbionFit.com
First off, new workout clothes calls for a new workout post! How cute are these new sports bras we each just got from Public Myth!? Regan's pants are from there as well! They have awesome stuff for great deals. Check out their website!
Below is Sidney's killer at home 10 minute ab workout. In her words "this workout will probably be way too hard for normal people" (she's obviously super humble ;) so you can also cut everything in half and do it in 5 minutes if you want! Don't feel bad if you do either. Sometimes we swear Sidney is not human!
10 minute Ab Workout:
2 minutes: Plank
2 minutes: Cherry Pickers
2 minutes: Slow Bicycles
2 minutes: Kick Outs
1 minute: Left Side Plank
1 minute: Right Side Plank
To cut it in half, just do the first four for 1 minute and the last 2 for 30 seconds each! Here is a video of the entire workout:
When Sidney returned from her mission she decided to try one of the recently popular 3 day juice cleanses. After eating off the streets of Indonesia for 18 months, she returned home with a lot of digestive issues and about 10 lbs of extra weight. She started right back in on a workout plan to get back in shape, and decided to try a 3 day juice cleanse to kick start a healthy eating plan, body detoxification, and weight loss....
The first juice cleanse she tried was the 3 day Suja cleanse. Suja juices are all organic and cold pressed, and this company is based out of California. You can find their 3 day juice cleanse boxed and for sale at many Costo's in CA for an amazing price of $22.99. There are 3 juices for each day, and Sidney did this cleanse without any additional food.
The morning juice is a spicy lemon, cayenne paper mix which is actually not bad tasting but pretty spicy. The afternoon drink is a vegetable and greens mix, which is not great tasting but not terrible either. The third drink is something to look forward to and is a delicious mix of almond milk, mashed banana and coconut meat. Tastes likes a treat! After 3 days Sidney felt great! She still had plenty of energy, her digestive problems were better, and she had lost 6 pounds. Below are her before and after pictures from a couple days after she returned home from her mission, to just 10 days later, after the juice cleanse.
After having such great results with her first cleanse, when Sidney visited Utah a couple weeks later, she decided to do another 3 day cleanse, this time with Regan. This time we tried juices that were custom made from home by DI.Vine Juice. These juices are a little more pricey, but are sooo good! It was hard to believe we were drinking vegetables! We actually had to call and ask if there was any added sugar because the juices were all so sweet! The only one that had any sweetener (agave) was the Chia Lime, which was our fav! You can choose the juices you want from the variety on the website, and can also choose your difficulty level, meaning the harder you go, the more veggies and spices are added compared to fruits. These juices were in smaller bottles, so there were six of them for each day. We each lost about four pounds on this cleanse.
We would highly recommend a 3 day juice cleanse! It's not hard to make it through the 3 days, and there are so many benefits! This is a way to give your body a good detox and flood it with nutrients, while helping to reset bad eating habits and curb cravings. The weight loss is a good confidence builder and jump start into a long term healthy eating plan. It's also so easy to stay on the plan for 3 days when the juices are already there and ready! It was a nice three day break from planning meals! We would highly recommend either of these 3 day plans! Happy juicing :)
Hey guys! We wanted to share a little goodness today and show you an awesome new full body workout we've been doing. Our cousin Trevor, who plays for the NY Jets and learned the workout from his trainer, recently showed it to us and we love it! It's quick, easy, and perfect if you're on the go :)
We're also sharing some basic workout essentials we can't live without! Our must-haves are listed below. And YES they are in order of importance ;)
1. A cute workout outfit…of course.
A good outfit somehow always gives us the motivation to get our workout on. There's just something about knowing you have a cute (preferably new) workout outfit waiting for you that get's us into the gym. These pants and tank tops are from Honey badger Housewife and we love them!
2. A quality pair of headphones or earbuds.
You guys HAVE to check out JLab Audio. Paige's white & gold earbuds are so so comfortable, and stay in amazingly well, and Regan's bluetooth headphones are seriously incredible. Listening to some good tunes during a workout is most definitely a priority for us. Which brings us to our next essential...
3. Go to workout jams. Here are our top 5. If you don't have these on your list, add them. Trust us!
-Runaway (U & I) by Galantis
-Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix Radio Edit) by Omi
-Hey Mama (feat. Nicki Minaj & Afrojack) by David Guetta
-The Nights by Avicii
-Finally by Mr Belt & Wezol
We recently discovered The Koil hair ties. They seriously make such a difference in the hold and comfort they give compared to regular elastic hair ties.
6. Dumbbells. You can use these for so many great workouts that are quick right from home! Our new favorite is the one shown below!
Turkish Get up
This is the exercise we mentioned earlier that our cousin Trevor taught us. We like this it because it's quick, and we can get our entire workout done in one shot ;) Look up Turkish Get up on YouTube for a better idea of how to do this. Do 10 reps on each side holding a weight.
More workouts coming soon! Our third sister, the fitness guru, comes home from her mission in just 2 weeks!
When it comes to working out, we are definitely not the poster children for how often we should be going to the gym (that's where Sidney fits in to this blog).
However, when we do go, we ALWAYS do this quick killer ab workout as a warm up, and every time, without fail, we wake up sore the next morning.
It's quick, and it works.
Here's a short (and cheesy) video to show you how to do it.
Our video skills are wayy below average, so please don't judge ;) That's another area where Sid will come in handy with her videography skillzzz.
Thanks for reading! We'd love to hear about YOUR favorite go-to gym routines. Tell us in the comments below :)
