With the Holidays here there are always so many events, parties and gatherings where not so healthy food, meals and treats are all around. One can easily fall off of the health and fitness train or simply have a major set back during this time.
Hi friends!! I know it has been a while since I have done a Fitness Friday post but I have not given up on my fitness journey, I guess I have been to caught up so many other things that I hadn't did a post.
Today I want to share some of the meals I have been having. I don't do any meal prep, I just make things as I go but I have been seasoning (marinating) the meat I will eat for the week just to make it easier on myself.

I know last week I did not do a Fitness Friday post don't worry I will catch you up, I didn't do much. Apart from stretching my week in exercise was pretty uneventful.
This week however was has been really good. Although the goal was to simply not gain, I lost 2lbs! I have been trying to eat on a more timely manner and I have incorporated Zumba Wii. I was able to purchase it with a Groupon deal for $27 with free shipping that has since then ended. If you don't follow me on Twitter or Facebook you should because I share many of the deals I get on the and this way you won't miss any great offers.
Zumba Fitness Core helps players sculpt their core during a whole-body workout customized by level of intensity. Forty original songs or hit music from Enrique Iglesias and Karmin go with the dance-based exercises like peas and carrots or peanut butter and a dog’s hard palate. Players can also use the game to set personal fitness goals informed by the game’s free lifestyle and nutrition tips.
Reasons why I love it
If you are looking to start a new workout program, are bored with your old one or simply do not like to workout this is a great start. I am really liking it and hope to continue to do it every other day until the baby gets here.
Disclosure: This product was tested and approved by Chica Fashion. It was purchased with my own funds this is not a sponsored post. Please consult with a physician before starting any exercise program.
Why is working out while pregnant so much work for me? Apart from some random squats with my daughter on piggy back, I really didn't work out this week.
On the plus side I am still doing ok with my goal of not passing 200lbs. It is going to be hard because I still have a whole 16 weeks to
go. I am almost sure I will go over as much as I don't want to.
If anyone is looking to change up or add a workout plan this might work.
¿Por qué se me esta haciendo tan dificil hacer ejercisios mientras estoy embarazada? Aparte de algunas sentadillas con mi hija en mi espalda, yo realmente no hice ejercisios en esta semana.
En el lado positivo aún estoy haciendo bien con mi objetivo de no pasar 200 libras. Va a ser difícil porque todavía tengo 16 semanas
mas. Estoy casi segura de que voy a pasar aun que no lo quiero.
Si alguien está buscando cambiar o agregar un plan de entrenamiento esto podría funcionar.
I wanted to try a new segment on the blog "Fitness Friday" where I would share my fitness journey and also do post on fitness outfits or exercises.
I will start by saying although I love Beachbody Products I am no longer a coach for many reasons one is that the products are so easily accessible on the web so in many cases there is no need to go through a coach (rep). However I do swear by my Shakeology and Brazil Butt Lift. You can see my journey here.
I have always had an on again/off again relationship with diet and exercise where I battle with losing 15 pounds. I know it should be a lifestyle but it is hard lol. The last time I was Back On My Health and Fitness Kick it lasted a while, up until about August and then I found out I was expecting.
Yo quería probar un nuevo segmento en el blog "Fitness Friday" donde me gustaría compartir mi camnio con el fitness y también subir outfits de fitness y ejercicios.
Voy a empezar diciendo que aunque me encantan los productos de Beachbody ya no soy un entrenadora por muchas razones, una es que los productos son tan fácilmente accesibles en la web por lo que en muchos casos no hay necesidad de pasar por un entrenador (rep). Sin embargo, yo juro por mi Shakeology y Brazil Butt Lift. Usted puede ver mi viaje hasta aquí.
Siempre he tenido una estoy y no estoy relación con la dieta y el ejercicio en el que batalla con la pérdida de 15 libras. Sé que debe ser un estilo de vida, pero es difícil lol. La última vez que estuve de vuelta en mi regimen de salud y en el gimnasio dure un tiempo, hasta Agosto y luego me enteré de que estaba embarazada.
I did not workout again until last month when I was 20 weeks pregnant. I had been really sick 24/7, between that and feeling run down with little to no energy for much exercising wasn't a priority. I worked out 3x that week with Brazil Butt Lift and that was it lol so sad I know. I really want to push myself because I have been packing on the pounds, carbs have been my best friend so I worked out on Wednesday using this workout I found on Pinterest and plan on doing it today and tomorrow. So far it kicked my butt and my thighs have been so sore. My goal is 3x a week and somehow incorporate this other Pinterest routine in as well. I didn't do to bad with BrazilButt Lift but these days I am not always up for a full 30+ minute high tempo workout.
No hice mas entrenamiento de nuevo hasta el mes pasado cuando tenía 20 semanas de embarazo. Yo había estado muy enferma 24/7, entre eso y tener poca o ninguna energía para mucho, los ejercicios no era una prioridad. Entrene 3x esa semana con Brasil Butt Lift y ya lol, tan triste lo conozco. Tengo muchas ganas de esforzarme porque he estado subiendo las libras, los carbohidratos han sido mi mejor amigo, así que el Miércoles hice este entrenamiento que encontré en Pinterest y pienso hacerlo hoy y mañana. No fue tan facil los muslos me han estado tan doloridos. Mi meta es entrenar 3 veces a la semana y de alguna manera incorporar esta rutina tambein de Pinterest. Yo no hice tan mal a con Brazil Butt Lift pero en estos días no estoy siempre para 30+ minutos de entrenamiento de ritmo rapido.
Wish me luck and let me know if you try out those workouts too!
Deséan me suerte y quiero saber si usted intenta los ejercicios también!

I was sent a cute work out outfit including a top and bottom. My top is a NUX active wear rib cami ($50 value) in lilac rose. The ribs make it soft enough to wear on a night out while the built in shelf bra and light compression level make it an optimal workout top. It has a very nice stretch and hold.
The bottom that was sent is an American appareal fitness pant in black ($48 value). This Smooth, form-fitting workout pants in a new high-performance nylon fabric breathes easy to keep you cool while breaking a sweat. There is also a cute pocket on the inside top left side of the pant that can easily hold a locker key or money. The length was perfect for me and being a tall girl; five foot ten, length of fitness pants are very important to me.
I love that this workout outfit matches my fuschia exercise sneakers; I like to match when going to the gym so that was a plus for me.
