Breezy Days

The Weight is Over

July 31, 2014
After all my summer travels, I had eaten too much good food. Lobster rolls, donuts, clam chowder in sourdough bowls, burritos, you name it! I came back to Utah and realized that I needed to get back on some kind of diet/workout regimen, which is where WiO came into play. This program is designed to give your body the proper balance of macro and micro-nutrients to help with symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome. 

Above is what I received each week for my diet so I could make my meal replacement shakes. I did the diet for 2 weeks, which was a great jump start to eating healthy foods in healthy portions. I lost a total of 5 pounds! While it was pretty rough the first week to get started, I reminded myself of some of the healthy benefits of the diet: low carbs, digestible protein, gluten free, natural sweeteners, and whole food vitamins and minerals.

It was awesome to have a WiO coach to help me through the diet along with an extremely informative scale that measures weight, dry lean muscle mass, body fat mass, intra/extra cellular water, body fat percentage, total body water, and lead body mass. It was so cool to see the numbers change each week! I'm happy that this diet set me on the right track to continue on with my fitness journey :) Check out the post Rachel has done on her WiO progress!

The Husband's Summer Shave

July 30, 2014

Ryan loves rockin' the facial hair and while I like it, I think that he's just as handsome without!  He's tried most styles in the book, the most memorable being his intense mustache. Now that I've convinced him to shave off that mario-mustache we are now stuck with the beard! I actually like the beard as long as it's cleaned up, meaning no neck beard action. #SmoothSummer

Ryan is a skunk (as shown above) when it comes to new products. Although, he knows that I research about men's grooming products before I purchase them. Therefore he has to trust me ;) I stopped by my Orem Walmart to pick up his razor and shaving cream because it's so convenient and affordable! While he was shaving he loved that this Gillette Flexball Razor was electric because it "massaged his skin while shaving" and that the flexball makes shaving so much easier. Hooray! 

For his summer shave Ryan cleaned up the neck beard so there's a nice clean line. He also trimmed it up a bit so it isn't a huge mountain man beard! Love a clean and manly beard :) Below is a before and after of his clean summer shave with his new favorite Gillette Flexball Razor! #CollectiveBias

Amara Glam Spa Night

July 29, 2014
A couple of weeks ago I was invited along with some other bloggers in Utah Valley to enjoy a spa night at Amara Spa, Salon & Boutique! There was literally the red carpet rolled out for us, a fun photo booth with props, food catered by The Wild Zucchini Grill, drinks by Sodalicious, and beauty services courtesy of Amara!

I snacked on delicious desserts while Amara held giveaways every half hour, it was fun to see all the products gifted! I ended up winning a Sodalicious gift card...figures ;) I had my eyebrows waxed and a 15 minute massage from a couple of girls who work for Amara. Let's just say my brows look fab and that massage was heavenly!

Jade from Kissable Complexions is the gorgeous lady who hosted the party, she was such a sweetheart! It was fun meeting some new bloggers and chatting with my blogger friends. We all took home a swag bag at the end of the night and it was amazing!! So excited to try out all the different beauty products. Thanks Amara Spa, Salon & Boutique and everyone who helped to make the night happen!
