Hello Honey Boo Boo Babies!!
TGIF! If you’re anything like me, your Instagram feed is teeming with everyone’s “turn-up”, date night, and every imaginable fun activity ever invented, pictures.
Ever heard the saying: “If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done”? Well it’s true, and the basis for today’s post. Living the fab life requires a weekend of a different variety. What if I told you that a 5 minute tweak to your weekend could earn you CLEAR SKIN, A WHITE SMILE, and a smokin’ bod? Stayed tuned friends.
1.) Be honest. How much time do you really spend brushing your teeth on a typical Monday morning? Exactly. That’s what I thought. And for the shameful reader sheepishly wondering if I’m watching you because you read this article before you brushed your teeth… two things. Number one, I AM WATCHING YOU and number two…brush your teeth. The weekend is a great time to spend a few extra moments on those chompers. Take an extra moment to floss thoroughly and for those of you precocious little dentist’s pets who floss every morning… Screw you. Ain’t nobody got time for that! Finish off your weekend whitening routine with a 5 minute whitening gel or my special sauce for white teeth (here). BOOM! Sexy smile all week long honey babies!
2.) Remember Katy Perry’s, Hot n’ Cold? Five bucks says you never thought the secret to clear skin was hiding in that song. Actually five bucks doesn’t say that… a penny does. Bring water to a rolling boil and pour into a clean bowl of your choice. Hold your face over the steam with a towel over your head to open your pores. Blackheads? Follow up with Clean and Clear Blackhead Eraser or Clinique’s gentle face wash for best results. Then lather on the lotion for SUPA CLEAN PORES, MY FRIENDS. Super clean. Faith, you say, I thought this was hot AND cold? BE PATIENT YOU BARBARIAN! Here’s the cold part. Fill a bowl with ice cold water and empty a tray of ice cubes into it. Dunk your face to seal your pores, and banish puffiness. Tip: don’t try this with dirty skin…best recipe for a zit if there ever was one.
3.) Here’s your smoking hot body in five ladies and gents. I am God’s gift to the world. Do each exercise as fast as you can for one minute. For best results, don’t take a break between sets.
Ground Sprints- I hated them in track but nothing works to tuck up that tummy and lean your legs. This move should be called “running in plank position”. Why you ask? Because that’s what ya do, ya feel me? Be sure to keep your palms directly beneath your shoulders.
Power Squats- Start in standing position, lower yourself into a deep squat and explode up. Squatting tightens your booty tooty and an explosive vertical jump tones your thighs and flattens that tummy. You’re welcome.
Lunges- Take a deep lunge on your left leg, make sure your knees don’t pass your toes. You should be able to see your toes when lunging properly. Now alternate and lunge with your right. Once it feels comfortable, alternate with a little more power by jumping out of each lunge and into the next. Toned booty, toned thighs, and great cardio people. It doesn’t get any better.
Plank- Get in push up position and lower yourself onto your elbows. Drop one knee until it is almost touching the floor, alternate for one minute. This active plank is great for your lower abs. No more muffin top for you, hot thing!
Booty Lift: To work abs and tighten your butt stay in push up position, kick your back leg straight up, alternate for one minute. For a more booty focused workout, lower your knees to the ground and lift a bended knee as high as possible. Alternate for one minute.
There you have it! Five minutes to fabulous! Don’t forget to follow me on twitter and let me know what your favorite tips were (@maishayote) and follow my blog for more fabulous-ness. Yes. That’s a word.
