It’s that time of the week! Workout Wednesday 🙂 It’s half way through the weekend and we are all waiting for the weekend! This weekend in Santa Barbara is supposed to be full of sun and for me the beach! Although since it is Santa Barbara the weather can completely change on us. To get ready for the weekend and spring break, you want those sexy legs to rock in shorts and sundresses.

This exercise is one of my favorites for my legs. I get all my inspiration from an instagram account I follow, click here. Behind the inspirational account is Karena and Casey. Two beautiful girls from Malibu, Ca. They post daily pictures of exercises  their food, cute bathing suits, and inspirational bodies.

To get ready for the weekend and spring break try this excercise!

  1. start off with 20 squats. 
  2. then move on to 30 lunges.
  3. next do 40 calf raises.
  4. then make your way to 50 second wall squats.
  5. then do 100 jumping jacks.
  6. then repeat doing 50 second wall squats.
  7. next do 40 sumo squats.
  8. then 30 leg raises.
  9. lastly do 20 squats.

This workout should take a total of 15 minutes. It’s a great workout to do at your house in your room, or at the gym! Whatever is easier for you! After the first week you should start noticing your legs getting stronger and your core hurting a tad. I promise you it will feel great after your body gets use to the idea.

Sorry I haven’t been posting my daily runs! I’ve been really busy and haven’t been taking the prettiest runs that are worthy of photos. The past week my mom and I have been doing after school hikes. For the past 3 days we have chosen s Inspirational Point hike. If you are ever in the area I highly recommend this hike! It’s a beautiful hike in the mountains of Santa Barbara. Click here for directions. Happy Wednesday everyone!! Enjoy the rest of your week 🙂

True Beauty

Santa Barbara

Everyday we take advantage of where we live and never really appreciate what we have. Last week I was taking my daily run when I came across this view and I had to snap a picture of it. I am very lucky to live in such a beautiful city. The ocean so blue with gorgeous cliffs to add to the scenery. Every day I take the same run route and never really admire or appreciate where I live and the gorgeous scenery I have in my backyard. I mean what 15 year old does. At this time in our life we really are not grateful for what we have. From now on, on all my daily runs I will take a new route to explore the beautiful city I live and understand the true beauty of where I live. Once a week I will upload and share my experience of my new route.
