Running has been my go-to work out for years, the only cardio that I thought to be effective, but now I know better.
A few weeks ago I started getting up even earlier than normal (think 5am or 5:30) to go workout with my friend. She is getting married in September and wanted someone to workout with her to stay motivated. Sure, I HATE mornings, but I adore my friend and I knew that I needed to step up my workout routine too.
She suggested that I mix up my training schedule and give the elliptical a try. Pffft... I thought "puhlease, I'm a runner and that machine looks like a joke". This is when I met and fell in love with the elliptical, otherwise known as "Dirty Bit". Every morning my workout ends with me entirely drenched in sweat and I can feel my body getting stronger and my booty getting firmer (THANK GOD).
As hard as it is to get up so early, I never regret it. I have had so much more energy and I feel better since I have been getting up earlier to work out.
Yesterday I posted about my new favorite BB cream. Several twitter friends and blog followers asked me what the heck BB cream is. So sorry that I forgot to include that info in my post! Here is a definition from Birchbox:
BB creams are all-in-one products that combine the functions of a primer, anti-aging serum, moisturizer, and light foundation—plus, many contain added benefits like SPF.
Have a fabulous day friends!
