Lip are something that needs to be healthy, plump, and colored. People always notice your lips, because they look at them while you are talking.  Overdue time and the harsh effects of the environment end up doing some damage to your lips. With these effects your natural smooth and defined lips become thin, crack and not as rosy. Now its time to get that back!

Here at OMGTRENDS we are obsessed with the Redfine Lip Renewing Serum. It literally should be called the Lip Miracle Worker. How does it work you ask? Well each and every peptide and antioxidant capsule helps reduce nasty lip wrinkles, brings back the natural smoothness, and natural moistening factors.

1. How long have you been seriously working out and how often do you hit the weights?

Honestly, My entire life, from what I can remember. Growing up I was always involved in something active like cheerleading/dance. I became seriously involved in working out in college when I began teaching group fitness classes.  Currently, I teach 10+ group classes a week where I am physically working out/participating in the classes so there is little time left for my personal workouts, but I do try to get at least 2-3 hours a week of my “own” workout (i.e. going for a run, taking a yoga class, or doing a total body free weight workout)

2. Carbs get a bad rap at times, what is your take on carbs and which types would you implement in your meal plan?  I love carbs. I am not the advocate to promote low carb diets. Carbs are our main source of fuel/energy and I need all I can get! Obviously there are “good” carbs, verses “bad,” and everything in moderation, but I will NEVER eliminate an important energy supplier, especially when it risks my performance in my cardio/strength workouts!!

3. What specifically do your daily meals consist of from breakfast to dinner?

Typically I eat small portions every 1-3 hours throughout the day and I always try to incorporate a protein into every portion.

My typical meal schedule looks like this:

– Breakfast: 2 eggs and/or oatmeal/fruit

– Snack: protein bar/shake (whey protein)

– Lunch (varies): salad with any protein, tuna sandwich on wheat, chicken/veggies, and chili

– Snack – fruit/yogurt/almonds

– Dinner – protein/veggie (sometimes brown rice, or a sweet potato)

Do you weigh your food or do you eye ball your portions? Eyeball, I normally eat small portions regardless.  Honestly, if I do go out to eat, I order from the kid’s meal a lot.

4. What are your future endeavors for your fitness company from a small scale to a large one?

My goals are to grow a fitness brand that represents all components of fitness/health/wellness in a safe, educated, and effective way.  I believe the industry as a whole is fading in the quality of the education and credentials of various fitness professionals with a considerable amount of false (and unsafe) information being promoted.  As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, I value safety and efficiency in exercise programming as a means to prevent injury/disability.  I also consider the importance of lifestyle modifications to assist others in achieving a healthier quality of life.  My ultimate goal is to keep this industry up-to-date in sharing my personal experience and education to promote my passion to fitness/health/wellness as a lifestyle while preventing injury/disability as a whole.

5. Its natural to have cravings, how do you control them? What is your Achilles heel when it comes to food?

I control my cravings with replacement of a similar tasting foods/drinks that do not have the negative outcomes from the actual food I am craving (which is usually something sweet and delicious). For instance, if I have an ice cream craving, I will make a fruit smoothie! My absolute Achilles Heel is a bag of peanut m-n-m’s, really tough to resist them! I try to not make eye contact with them in the store!

6. Cardio vs. Weights. When is cardio/weights appropriate for someone trying to shed pounds and tone up?

Cardio and weights go hand and hand.  There is no one is better than the other. Its simple, both are important for loosing weight and toning up. The decision between cardio and weights shouldn’t be a decision at all. The real decision is what intensity you are performing both methods at. Real results come from the concept of SAID – Specific Adaptations of Imposed Demands, which means, the more we do something the more efficient we become at it, therefore, we need to work harder or more intense to actually see physical benefits from the activity.  It boils down to how challenged you are regardless of what method of exercise you choose.

7. What is your advice for ladies who want to burn off their baby weight?

Immediately start on a weekly-regulated workout regime (workout at least 4-6 times per week) when cleared to begin exercising and NEVER STOP! Keep consistency and commitment and you will see the pounds drop.  Patience and persistence is the key to healthy weight loss and in keeping it off!

8. Final thought from Maria, any motivation or advice for bloggers reading your article?

In my experience working with a wide array of people, I recognize we all have a commonality in seeking a healthier and fit quality of life.  Regardless of how we “get it,” most of us are seeking it some way or another. This is why fitness/health is such a hot topic amongst social media, magazines/newspapers, and even with TV shows and movies. With my education and professional experience, I am confident in my knowledge within this industry to assist others in achieving their fitness goals! Id love to help you!

How to Lose Weight before your Wedding

 OMG TRENDS Loose weigh

As your special day approaches, the last thing you want to be doing is dieting. As a bride, you have so much to worry about, between your dress, the photographer, the cater, and so much more. I have found the most efficient and useful tips to losing weight before your wedding.

  • Do Not Crash Diet! People may advise you to go on a crash diet, but turn the other way. Crash diets are when you usually lose weight fast and most of the time starve yourself. When you starve yourself, your metabolism slows down. You may lose a lot of weight but when you are done with the crash diet, you will defiantly gain pounds back.
  • Go on a Healthy Diet! Make sure to have a well balance diet where you eat fibers, lean protien and low carbs. Instead of having 3 large meals, have small meals within the day. You can find lots of healthy diet plans online.
  • Cardio and Light Weights! Cardio exercises are important to do when buring fats. Lifting weights are important to so when toning muscles. Cardio exercises include, running, long walks, dancing (zumba or vixon), and jump rope. You can also hire a professional who will guide you and help you along the way.
  • Skip out on the Sugary Drink and Alcohol! Yes I said it, alcohol. That means no juices, no candy, no ice cream, no cookies, no “health food bars”, no Light and Fit yogurts, no nightly margaritas, no café mocha frappachinos. Packed with sugar and loaded with empty calories, these “treats” are keeping you fat, addicted to sugar, and providing no nutritional value. They’ve got to go!

Alcohol

So as you wedding day approaches, skip the crash diet and get healthy and lean. In the long run, you will be able to stay healthy and lean forever ,rather than having a short term amount of weight lost.

Hour Glass Shape

Hour Glass Shape

The hourglass figure is to be known as the “ideal” body type. An hourglass figure is when the hips and bust are almost equal size with a narrow waist. It is a horizontal figure, which means it is balanced. Here are a few easy and fun tips to dress your hourglass figure correctly. When choosing a top, you should stick to low to medium necklines, form fitting, belted, and wrap-style tops. Jackets should be tailored and define the waistline. When deciding to choose what bottoms to wear, you should stick to high waisted pants and pencil skirts. Boot cut and straight leg pants or jeans are your best friends. Lastly, one of the most important pieces of clothing in your closet, the dress, chose dresses that define your waistlines. Some key accessories to wear as an hour glass figure are waist belts, large, decorative studs, and fun, statement short necklaces. You want to draw the most attention to your waist in anything you wear, to balance your beautiful curves.
