Back In My Groove…

Hello my loves!!!!!! I hope you are all  having a wonderful day…it is pretty miserable today in NYC…this morning I had to go to work and my neighborhood was literally covered with a sheet of ice. Thankfully my dad was nice enough to pick me up and give me a ride to work!

Even though I had to be at the Gym at 8 in the morning; I managed to wake up at 5:30 and did Turbo Fire HIIT 15 and 100 sit ups on my stability ball. I have been slacking on my morning workouts so I decided to do a Morning Workout Challenge this month!!!! I am making myself do at least 30 minutes of some sort of activity right when I wake up. Hopefully this helps me stay consistent.

Today at the gym I met some more new people…I even had the chance to teach two teen sisters some moves with small apparatuses  (I love when I get to interact with people and show them some new things). I am still trying to find my niche there but I think a lot of the women relate to my story and it’s easier to turn to someone for help who has been there too in the past…so hopefully I get some clients soon! I want to change someone's life!

After work, my dad picked me up and took me back to his place for lunch. They usually are carnivores but they went out of their way to make the lunch “Mariette Friendly

Tomato, Basil, and Fresh Mozzarella Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette


White Rice…


Salad with Lettuce, Apples, Cranberries, and Oranges…


Grilled Shrimp and Baked Fish…


My plate…yuuuuums!


Look at how Juicy it is…
