Zap the shine

Hi there! I’ve gotten a few emails this week of women asking me about how to prevent shine with makeup. When working out, I recommend NO makeup. It clogs pores because through a good workout , you will sweat . I really don’t like going to the gym watching a woman working out with a face full if makeup. I know when I work out , it gets the blood flowing and I actually like how my face looks after a workout believe it or not, BUT when I’m not working out, I have turned myself onto an amazing light foundation which I only wear when I go out. I have been using the perfect matte liquid dolce and gabbana foundation. It is a bit pricey , but wow I have never used a foundation quite like this! One thing to zap the shine is use a light serum ( primer) before your foundation and then top with a light powder. Use a light brush to apply your powder. If you use the pads that come with some , you can get the cakey look.

Some Great Pre- Workout Meals before your workout

A lot of people tell me a lot of the time that one thing they get confused on when following a training plan, whether getting ready to run a 5K, or even trying to lose a few pounds, but gain more muscle is “I really don’t know how I should be eating”, It can be a bit confusing because you wonder should I stick with low fat, high protein, low carbs? Well, it all depends on your body for one, and How much your working out, and its all based on how many calories your body needs, which is based on your weight, and how many pounds you want to lose. I do want to tell you that I have some great pre workout meals before your workout that are healthy and provide the protein & carbs that your body needs. Greek yogurt with a banana , a high fiber cereal, ( whole grain such as Go Lean cereals, Peanut butter ( natural), on high fiber toast. Oatmeal ( natural).. not the sugar filled packets are good for muscle building, & egg whites. Egg whites can be used in a variety of ways , and in a lot of different recipes. Hummus, is also a good product to use for muscle building. The best way to start a eating plan, is write down your weeks meals, pre plan them, and that way you know the times and meals to eat. Its best to eat every two -three hours . Any of you that need an extra boost on meal plans, please contact me.
