Becoming Our Lifestyle

Finally, I was able to be back on track as far as exercising. I have been doing a lot of cardio lately. I try to do it 5 days a week more on Zumba and elliptical. I have been wanting to do the nike training but it is not happening now. I believe it will be effective if I will get up really early when my kids are still sleeping and exercise. It it really is a dedication to achieve something. Right now, my husband and I still trying on different routines, since my mom left (she was really a big help).

As for my diet, I have been snacking healthy, I usually have Greek yogurt and whole grain crackers and quack mole. I have been eating brown rice with quinoa for my rice. I must say I have been eating healthy food. I do cheat too. And Like what I have been saying before, I signed up for this S health on my phone and there I input my food intake, water intake and it helps so I can keep track.

Working on making this a long term habit is still a work in progress. When you have kids, things change quite often. I just have to be flexible.

My measurements are still the same, since I have not been doing nike training. Like I said cardio is the main exercise I do so I kept my weight to 127 lbs. 1 more lb and then I reached my goal. But my ultimate goal is to lose inches. I want to be toned. That looks better, for me if I look better it makes me feel better.

Happy Friday Everyone!

I hope I inspired you.

Happy Wednesday!

I have not worn anything like this before, but like I said on my about page. I am in that stage where I’ve been trying out different style. I just wanted to see if it looks good and it did. I really liked the outfit. So stylish! The material is okay, I think it would have been nicer if it is satin.

You can wear this making or when getting some cocktails with your girlfriends and some day time parties.

Eagle Rock Resort

We had a wonderful weekend together with our family and friends. We were so Ockham to have a perfect weather for this mini getaway. This is actually an annual thing for our family and relatives in NY. We always get to enjoy nature and the good company.

This weekend was the first time have been in Eagle rock were they have a special event. It was a summerfest, it was a family day event. They had free food, face painting, hay ride, balloons and moon bounce for the kids. The kids really enjoyed their stay, and of course everybody did!

At the pool, they had games for the kids by diving to get the gold coin underneath the pool. It was so much fun! Adi really enjoyed that one.

It was also the first time, my daughter Adi was able to try swimming by herself. My husband and I was so excited. We had her enrolled on a swimming class last year, but after the first day when the instructor asked them to submerged in the water. We couldn’t get her to come back to the class the next day, she was crying.

As for our little boy Aidan, he was enjoying everything from the pool, moon bounce and just by running around, taking his slippers off. We couldn’t get him to wear it.

This time also, we got to go to the lake that they have. It was so gorgeous! Since we have known this resort we never tried coming to the lake. We had been missing a lot. It was never too late. They have paddle boats, row boats, canoes and pedal boats for the whole family. The weather was just so perfect! So we decided to try the row boat, when we got to the middle of the lake my husband and our friend decided that they wanna jump off the boat. The water temp was just right so I joined them. The funny part was we couldn’t jump back in to the boat. So what happened was we just swam from there to get back to the shore. Tiring!

We also had a lot of food to share, we stayed at the picnic tables they had at the side of the lake. When it was getting dark, we decided to check out the clubhouse to see what they have there.

At the clubhouse, they have a lot of activities for people of Ll ages. There was an activity room, room for toddlers where they can play with toys. There billiards, Xbox, arcade, lounge where they show movies, air hockey, foozball, lounge where you can watch a movie, basketball court. On the outside they have another outdoor pool.

I wish we can be there for a week, maybe next time we will plan it that way. As for place to stay, they have the Inn, sugarloaf townhouses, and hotel, but we prefer to stay on an outside hotel like the Marriot Residence Inn. Which is like a mile or 2 away from there.

Positive vibes friends!
Have a nice day everyone!

Another Summer Day

NOV_6434NOV_6593 NOV_6594 NOV_6597 NOV_6598 NOV_6600

When it is summer time, as a family, we love going out to the park or anywhere close to where we live. We always make it a point we use up all the good weather outdoors, because when the weather gets cold… All indoors activities again.

We always love going to the National Harbor. It is only 10 mins away from home and they have a lot of things to do there for everyone, people of all ages.

As you can see, I wore this very simple casual outfit, because with Aidan. OMG! he loves pulling of my shirt. I had to wear something that is comfy and child proof outfit. Plus, I just realized when putting on the clothes, all 3 of us have shades of pink. Lovely color to wear in the summer time. As you can see, My husband is not in the picture because he is our official photographer.

I hope you all are having a great summer!

The dress was really comfy and I just had to add gold slippers and necklace and it looks chic already.

NOV_6033 NOV_6040 NOV_6044 NOV_6048 NOV_6052

Hello friends! I have not been posting anything lately. I had a very bad cold over the weekend and is still recovering then yesterday my little boy was running a fever too. Good thing we are both better now. Thank God! So i brighten up this week. It is never too late to post an outfit that is really cute.

I have worn this dress to an evening party! I love that it is pink and girly girly. I’m still experimenting on my style. As you all know as a physical therapist, my everyday outfit is a scrub suit. That is why I love to express my inner fashionista in me on my blog.

I also thought about blogging this outfit because it reminded me of Jennifer Garner on 13 going on 30. Her outfit on the billboard for that movie was something like this. so cute!

I have you are all enjoying your week and excited for Friday!

Do you have something in your closet that you have for years and still loves wearing them over and over again. This blouse is one of them. I got these 7 years ago and the beauty of this blouse never fades. Do you agree? I just mix and match it with whatever I have in my closet. I do believe that every woman should have their statemwnt blouse like this one.

Flowy Black Dress

Flowy Black Dress

As I was checking out my closet, because I have so many black dresses. I overlooked this one. This dress was given to me by my sister in law probably a year or 2 years ago, I cannot even remember.

It still looks brand new and it is such a nice flowy dress to wear this summer even if it is black. The fabric is so soft and you can tell from the picture that I enjoyed playing with it. It was bought in one of the fashion boutique in the Philippines. I believe all ladies should get a dress like this, you can turn this to an elegant evening dress just change the shoes to a strappy heels and you can change the clutch too.

Happy Wednesday!

Fitness Journey Part III

Hello friends!

Sorry I have been able to update you on my fitness journey for the past two weeks. We are still adjusting since my mom left on the 22nd of July. I am still trying how To figure out a workout schedule and routine. I haven’t been able to do the nike training for 2 weeks now. What has been working for me was, if I am with the kids, I just do a lot ab workout. Because I will not be able to workout with equipment if my son is around. Very unsafe, because he moves around it. I also was able to do some Zumba along the way, while they are playing in the room, I’ll do that. Even at times, my son will want me to carry me. Then he will be my weights 🙂 of course I move gently when I am carrying him.

As far as food intake. This S health is really helping a lot, I can keep track with my food intake and how many calories a day, water intake, how many steps I have taken (this one was not that accurate because sometimes I do not have my phone with me, so I know I have walked more than what that app calculated for me).

So far, I only gained 1 lb in that 2 weeks but the good news is, I have lost a little bit on the arms close to half an inch and 1/2 inch around my waist, thigh is the same. I guess all my ab workout paid off, I also use the tummy trimmer, it’s like a corset it is suppose to give shape. I also lift 6 lbs weights usually when the kids are not around.

Yesterday, I woke up early, then I was able to do the 30 min elliptical for cardio, ab workout and some weight lifting.

Overall, I know I am improving, my food intake has been healthy, my husband also noticed that I am improving, I notice it too. And I feel good about it.

As far as my workout buddies:

Silvia and Gauri has been working out good, they send me snap chats after their workout so I know they are keeping track. As far as Lena, I haven’t asked her about it. On the next post I will give you picture updates also with our measurements.

I hope we all inspire you. Shout out for all the moms out there who are on the same journey. It is really hard specially when you have small kids, I just realizing it. Because for 2 years we had helped from our parents to take care of the kids so it was really easy for me to keep up with that part. Right now, I am trying to work out on a best schedule to fit in my workouts.

Happy Monday!!

Simply,

Christianne

The Beach at Ocean City

NOV_5771NOV_5763NOV_5762NOV_5752NOV_5727NOV_5724NOV_5691NOV_5648
I have been wanting to go to the beach but we have been very busy, the last time we went was September last year when we visited Cancun, Mexico. Summer will not be complete without a trip to the beach. I know all of you agree with me on that one?

So last weekend was the day. We went to Ocean City since I found a good deal and it was an oceanfront hotel and it was on the boardwalk. As you can see from the pictures, our whole family had fun specially the kids. What my husband and I noticed was that Aidan was not putting the sand on his mouth anymore. Omg! When we were in Cancun, we had to be by his side all the time or else he’ll be full with sands.

And as for Adi, she used to be so scared of the waves that she’ll just rather play on the sand. This time she was enjoying the waves, she’ll ask us to jump with her when the waves comes.

We were also blessed with a perfect weather, that was the cherry on top. There were also a lot people on the outdoor pool that’s why we just used the pool float on the indoor pool.

As for the swimsuit that I wore. I have been wearing this most of the time, it is one of my favorite one piece. Good fit and gives you shape.
