End of the Year Fitness Reflections and Realistic New Year’s Resolutions

This post is partnered with adidas, but all the opinions are my own.

It is that time of the year again that I started to reflect on what I have achieved and what is my new dreams, life goals and plans for the upcoming new year. I must say, 2018 is an extraordinary year for me. It is filled with a lot of personal growth and achievements in many aspects of my life, especially in the fitness area.

My fitness journey officially started about six months after I lost my late husband. It was one of my ways to get my life back, and it has for sure helped me through the darkest time of my life. You can read Life After Loss || How Fitness Helped Me Cope for more details. Since I started in July 2017, I have been keeping up at least 3 or 4 times with my gym routines for most of the weeks. My goals are being more healthy and get my high school body back. To make it more measurable, it means that physically I will have more energy to do the things that I love and enjoy. If I have to put them into numbers, it means I would love to fit into my size zero dress again.

I am very lucky to have a great gym called Area 45 Fitness that is very close to my house. I can even walk to it. Lol. But the best part is all about the people. The community there is so supportive and filled with fun, loving people! It makes working out more like playing with friends. Lol.

Since November, I haven’t been able to go to the gym as much as I would like, but the results are still pretty good if I compare myself now with last year. Of course, I try to eat clean regularly and also got CoolScupting treatments to speed up the progress of shrinking my tummy. As you can see below with those BEFORE/AFTER photos, I am more toned, and my middle session is so much flatter now.

I am quite happy with my program I have made in 2018, and I defiantly will keep up the good work. The goal for next year is to lose more fat on my tummy and gain more muscles so I will finally be able to feel more comfortable to wear a crop top when I am working out. Lol. Anyway, below is the analysis from my gym. I do have a long way to go!

Analysis: Overall your progress was great considering your busy schedule. Your focus was to lose inches off of your waist and you were able to bring that down from 32.1 to 27.1 inches, which is s total of 5-inches. We were able to reduce your body fat percentage from 33.2 to 27.1, which again was not bad considering your schedule. We’re excited to see what the New Year will bring you and our future goal is 22.0 percent in Body Fat!

By the way, since going to the gym become my weekly routine, I have found myself buying more and more gym clothes. Lol, you know, a cute outfit makes working out just a little bit less hard, right? I have been collecting more and more pieces from www.adidas.com. Just like in this outfit, everything from head to toe is from adidas. By the way, this ESSENTIALS 3-STRIPES TIGHTS is so comfy! I want to wear them every day! This DON’T REST ALPHASKIN SPORTS BRA is so cute with all my gym pants/shorts. Oh and this white VARILITE HYBRID JACKET is so chic! I wear it when I go out sometimes. 😉

Give The Gift Of Youthful Looking Skin With NeoStrata || Dermatologist Developed Skincare Products

This post is sponsored by NEOSTRATA, but all the opinions are my own.

Our skin goes through so much on a daily basis. Can you imagine a car that you drive daily for 70 or 80 years and the paint/surface still looking great? Lol! It is safe to say that it takes quite the punch, so it is important to ensure we give it the TLC it deserves—and what better time to do so than during the holidays, right?

With the holidays right around the corner, we’ve all been trying to find the perfect gifts for our friends, family, and ourselves. For myself, as a skin care junkie, there is no better gift than amazing products to help me achieve, or maintain more youthful looking skin. You only get one set of skin, why not to make the best out of it, right? Lol, anyway, if you are on the same page, I have some great news for you. Do you remember the post I wrote My New Anti-Aging Secret ||NeoStrata Dermatologist Developed Skincare Brand? When I started to use products from NEOSTRATA, I had no idea how the results would turn out, but after one month, I noticed that the wrinkles under my right eye were disappearing and my neck creases were less prominent. You can see all the before and after photos and read more details about the results from my recent post “NeoStrata ||Powerful Anti Aging Skincare Products Taking Years Off My Appearance“. My absolute favorites are the NEOSTRATA SKIN ACTIVE Intensive Eye Therapy and the NEOSTRATA SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream.

For Your Mom: A Beauty Basket.

Sometimes moms need a little help when picking out skincare products. If you think mom could use an anti-aging skincare regimen like NEOSTRATA SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum, NEOSTRATA SKIN ACTIVE Intensive Eye Therapy and NEOSTRATA SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream this Christmas, surround it with other fun, related products to create a beauty basket that doesn’t only focus on anti-aging. For example, adding a facemask, a foot scrub, bath bombs, and maybe even a bottle of wine – give her the gift of relaxation! See the beauty and relaxation of this gift!

For Your Girlfriend: Professional Advice

What better gift is there than an opportunity to get pampered? This Christmas, get your favorite girlfriend(s) a gift certificate to a local derm office or medical spa that carries the NEOSTRATA product line. If you really love them, maybe even add the NEOSTRATA Restore Daytime Protection Cream SPF 23 and the NEOSTRATA SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream as a small add-on. Oh, why not get yourself a spa gift certificate too and make it a bonding day, right?

For Your Sister: A Skin Care Gift Certificate.

I always wanted a sister, and it will would be so cool to be able to share so many fun moments together. This holiday season, instead of just gifting products to her, let her choose! Maybe provide her with a gift card to a physician office that carries the brand and let the esthetician get into the specifics for what is right for her skin.

For Your Husband/Boyfriend/Brother/Male Friend:

Most guys look to their significant others for skincare advice. Help them discover products that are specific to his skin concerns by getting him a full skincare regimen tailored just for him. For example, I have seen amazing results after using this NEOSTRATA SKIN ACTIVE Intensive Eye Therapy.

Whether you’re shopping for a skincare-obsessed friend or you’re tempted to try a new regimen for yourself, there are many different products that you can chose from NEOSTRATA. I have seen such a difference on my own skin and I highly recommend you give the brand a try as well!
