Home Workout Essentials and Routines!

At home gym
Having equipment at home can be crucial for those moments you get instant motivation to workout or the days with little motivation to make it all the way to the gym. These are my favorite at home essentials.  A lot of my items, I  was able to pick up slowly over time for pretty affordable prices. TJ MAX and similar stores have sections with different workout gear on major sale. I got my ab roller for $7 bucks!! I usually get all my workout gear from stores like TJ Max, ross etc. If I can get the same sports bra or workout shorts for significantly cheaper…duh, I am going to. Don’t feel you have to buy everything at once, grow your personal gym slowly. I had only an ab roller, then I bought resistance bands and thanks for a friends ex boyfriend for leaving his kettlebell, I came up on a 20lb kettlebell. There is also the jump rope, it is also a very affordable and small foot print piece of equipment that can burn those calories of quick.
It is important to stay an active healthy babe and that does not mean a certain size or weight but to live a healthy lifestyle and treat your body well because it is the only one you get!
I hate counting so I tend to do my workouts by times.
Try doing each exercise for a minute and if you can’t do a full minute make sure you keep track of your progress.
1 minute each  for 4 rounds.
1. Jump Rope
2.Ab Roller
3.Kettlebell swings
4.Push ups- any style that you do to get them done.
5.Walking squats with  a resistance band tied around your calves. When the resistance band is tied around your legs it provides great resistance. Do different ranges of motion with your leg to reach different muscles in your legs and glutes.
Or try out a at home Crossfit style WOD : My brother is a personal trainer and made this plan for me and I thought what a perfect routine to share!
*** To perfect the moves check out youtube for proper form or to clarify the move. Simply type in the exercise and there is a youtube that is there to help, that I am sure.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick Sell Their Stylish $3M Home: Take a peek inside.

I have always been fascinated with Kourtney Kardashians interior design style. Now  according to Yahoo news, Kourtney and Scott Disick  have sold their custom designed home and we get a peek inside! 

Yahoo : By 

“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” has been particularly difficult this week.

Besides all the excitement (and irritation) over Kim and Kanye West’s Vogue cover, E! has announced that its stable of Kardashian shows is about to get bigger. It’s planned “Kourtney and Khloé Take the Hamptons,” which will revolve around Kourtney, her longtime love Scott Disick, and a newly single Khloé, and a show about the Kardashian family’s Dash boutiques called “Dash Dolls.” Just in case you missed one of the fam’s three other spinoffs!

 

On Tuesday, Kourtney, 34, and Scott, 30, officially sold the Calabasas, California, home they bought in 2010 and put on the market just two months ago. The new owner paid $2.975 million for the 5,400-square-foot abode with four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms inside a gated community, according to Redfin. The home features funky interiors touches, such as black-and-white striped walls, a patterned staircase, and colorful, stylish light fixtures. Amenities such as a fireplace, built-in book cases, and breathtaking views are also part of the package. Disick once described the home his fashion-conscious gal pal decorated with interior designer Jeff Andrews as “Alice in Wonderland meets Beetlejuice.”

But the couple and their two children, 4-year-old son Mason and daughter Penelope, 1, aren’t going far. They purchased former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson’s residence for $8.495 million in late January, despite the fact that Justin Bieber was going to be their neighbor. Fortunately, Khloé purchased the pop star’s digs so the Kardashian sisters will be living down the the street from one another.

Take a look at the impressive house Kourtney and Scott are leaving behind.
