Beach Workout

IMG_8861There is nothing like laying next to extremely fit people in a swimsuit to jump start the need to workout.  The joy of vacationing is that you don’t need to be anywhere, so there really are no excuses to get out and move (although that doesn’t keep me from trying to make them).

IMG_8832My sister Taylor kicked our bootys (booties?!) shore side and I wanted to share her workout – do if you dare!

If You Feel Like Pina Coladas…

IMG_8552

Well, because I am currently in overdrive on my “Spring Break Diet,” I am not indulging in Pina Coladas… le sigh.  BUT I am doing the next best thing, which is whipping up this amazing coconut body smoothing treatment.

Coconut Ginger Scrub

  • 1/2 cup ground rice (just give it a few seconds in your blender)
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons freshly grated ginger

Stir until the ingredients form a paste.  Smooth onto your body using circular motions. Rinse and moisturize.

I like to then apply my favorite self tanner with this mitt.
