Werkin’ on that bum!

It’s official. Everyone’s obsessed with the booty. Everyone is obsessed with bums, butts and booty’s.

Ready? Let’s get to werrrk.

Intense INNER THIGH Challenge / If you want to push yourself to be the strongest you’ve ever been. Do this challenge. You’ll mostly be doing a move called the Froggy Jump Squat, but don’t be fooled by the cute name because this workout will leave you seriously unable to move!

What can I do at the Gym?


Leg Press
/ Build up strength in your legs and your glutes by using the Leg Press at the gym.


Ellipse Machine
/ Khloé Kardashian uses this at the gym… need I say more?


Kettle Weights
/ Do your research and look up the hundreds of amazing exercises you can do using a kettle weight at the gym (or even at home!).


Cardio!
/ You can’t escape cardio if you’re werking towards a lovely round, plump bum. Get on that treadmill and do a bit of cardio – hard work pays off!

What exercises can I do around the house?
We all find ourselves sitting around doing absolutely nothing at one point in the day and it’s also the best chance to pass the time with little exercises to work on that bum! You could do some good old squats (and you’d be surprised how many variations of squats there are out there). If you’ve got yourself a set of stairs, make use of them! Run up and down the steps for a good few minutes for an intense butt workout. If walking is just too mainstream to do around the house, swap it for lunges. It’s a stretch, a toning and strengthening exercise and if you do enough, you’ll still feel the burn tomorrow!

What else can I do?
As weird as it sounds, sit down less. If you’re at home or at an office, make your seat more cushioned for the comfort and benefit of your bum, or you could even replace your desk chair with an exercise ball.
Moisturize that backside for a complexion of a Goddess. Honey, you’ll make them boys cry wishing they had that booty!

T.G.I.F. 7 Fun and Exciting Ways to Enjoy the Weekend

tgif 1

Thank the lord it’s Friday..finally! I don’t know about you guys but I like the weekend. You can sleep in duh! Plus it’s the time you can go hang with your girls and relax after a long week’s worth of bills, worrying about the next move, work or guy drama. So to start this weekend off right let’s be positive and enjoy ourselves while we’re young. You only live once right? But that doesn’t mean to not take care of ourselves and our bodies.

If you haven’t read the last blog post, then go HERE and check it out for dope beats to soundtrack your life this weekend. (I know. A bit cheesy) Keep it PG for all minors ok! But the music will have you feeling some type of way until that dreadful Monday morning wake up call. In the mean time, IT”S FRIDAY!! (Drink at a healthy pace. No drinking and driving ladies and gents.)

 

1. Go Dancing

And no, I don’t mean go clubbing..which you can totally do, try something different and sign up for a fun hip hop dance class. This is a great way to get in shape and goof around at the same time. Dancing is a lot more cardio than you think. It’ll have you sweating in no time. You hardly even realize you’re working out. Trust me, I just took a hip hop class over this last weekend and fell in love. I found the exercise that will work for me! Classes tend to be pretty cheap as well. You can go alone or convince friends to tag along with you. Guilt them if you have to.(video from Janelle Ginestra’s channel)

2. Schedule an impromptu photo shoot with friends

Do you, a friend or someone you know have a camera? Then get a group together and organize a last-minute photo shoot. It’ll be fun and no one has to ever see these pictures if you don’t want. They will be fun to look at while at work for a quick laugh or to hold blackmail against a friend. Drinks can always be added.  Insert evil laugh here 

3. Go to a Drive-in Movie Theatre

I used to go see movies at drive-ins all of the time when I was younger. They are fun and you can make a cool trip out of them. You can take blankets, chairs and sneak snacks into the outside theaters (the concessions there are hella expensive lol) You also get to watch two movies for the price of one! Can’t beat that. This could be a chance to snuggle up close to a guy or girl you’ve been crushing on if you invite friends and make a group and make something special out of it. And if you don’t live close to one try making your own drive in. If you’re really lazy then just stay in and have a Netflix night, no harm in that either.

4. Throw a Pinterest Party!

If you’re like me then you have at least a dozen boards on Pinterest full of things you keep saying that you’ll try. Wether it’s the fitness board that you’ve added hundreds of pins to but haven’t started really looking at or that DIY crafts board that you were so excited about months ago, try them now. Right Now! This weekend with friends. Blast music while doing them and watch how much fun you’ll be having…you won’t even remember why you hadn’t tried this before. Add drinks if you want *wink wink

5. Iron Chef “Healthy version” contest…or not

Invite friends (guys, girls or both) for some fun and food! You can even make it into a battle of the sexes. Cook out of the items in your kitchen (make sure to stock up on food) or better yet have the friends bring some treats with them and get creative with the dishes. Try sticking to the healthier side if you can. Or at least drink water…or something else..

6. Go To an Open Mic Night/Karaoke Bar

Theres bound to be some sort of talent in your town. Or at the very least it’ll be a fun night filled with laughs. You can laugh and crack jokes at the people brave or drunk enough to get up and sing. Did I mention there’s usually no cover and drinks? It may turn out to be an unforgettable night.

7. Try a dating app/site

Ok, you guys and girls know you’ve wanted to try it but you haven’t because you think it’s too weird and only for “old people who can’t find someone”. You would be so wrong. You never really know until you try. There’s no harm in trying. There are some pretty cool ones out there such as:

Apps/sites

Tinder

 

Coffee meets Bagel

OkCupid.com

Badoo

Zoosk

Meet Me:)

Match.com

Moco

DateHookup

POF (plenty of fish)

Dating DNA free

Skout

…These are some of the cooler dating outlets to try opposed to regular meeting,dating,etc. Don’t knock it until you it. I’m currently trying out Tinder and I’ve tried OkCupid as well as C.M.B. before. Take a chance and none of your friends have to find out if you don’t want them to and feel that embarrassed about it. You aren’t the only ones having a hard time finding that special someone. Trust.

Have a great weekend and comment below telling about your weekends. #goldsoulla
