As you probably know, I decided to challenge myself and signed up to run my very first half-marathon in October. My longest run was a 10K back in April so running a 21K race will definitely be a challenge, both physically and mentally.
This is my fifth week of training, I’m loving the journey and have learned a lot since when I started. If you’re new to the “running world” or is thinking about starting long distance training, this is for you 🙂 Here are some personal tips I think you should know.
finishing a long run makes you feel so accomplished, trust me!
I don’t know about you all, but being productive is a big deal for me. Between work, household tasks, friends, family and being a wife, sometimes it’s hard to find time to do it all and stay at the top of my game!
Since I exercise 5-6 times per week for about 45min-1 hour, I try to get the most of it by doing something else while I workout. From getting caught up on emails to Face-timing my mom from Brazil, I always feel double accomplished after I’m done.Read More »
I often get asked about what I eat in a day or how I keep I stay healthy work. First off, each body is different and has different nutritional needs. I’ve personally learned so much about food throughout the years that today I pretty much know what I need to keep my body energized and healthy.
It’s a little hard to tell what my day/meals will look like since I don’t follow any diets/or count macros ( I’m just avoiding red meat lately). And even though my meals change daily, I thought it would be fun to share with you what I eat in a regular week/work day.Read More »

I have been wanting to write this blog post for ever since a friend of mine asked me “how she could change to start living a healthier life.” After talking to her about it, I finally decided to share my thoughts and some of things that helped me to become healthier when I changed my lifestyle in 2013!
5 TIPS FOR A HEALTHIER LIFE
Set Attainable Goals:I think this is the most important one. Setting up a goal and having the desire to change, is the very first step. Grab a paper/phone, write down your goals and set a deadline to achieve them. I personally love writing down my goals so I can cross them out whenever I achieve them. I also like to set goals for the week and even for the day. Short-term goals can be achieved faster, and will motivated us to keep working towards the long-term goals.
As most of you know, last week I went to California for a mini 4-day vacation and it was PERFECT. I got to run by the beach as I kept strong on my 10K training, to go bike riding, spend quality time with my husband and of course, eat delicious food! Overall, we had 4 VERY active days (35k steps on day 1).
Happy Tuesday everyone – Hope you all had an great Labor Day Weekend!
Who loves wearing athletic-wear? I sure do! Even when I’m not at the gym working out, I’m almost always wearing activewear. I wear it at the grocery store, when I’m chilling at home, running errands, shopping, and I even wear gym clothes at work – I can wear Athleisure at the office and I love it!
Comfort is EVERYTHING! Besides, you can’t go wrong with a comfy pair of leggings. Am I right?!
