3 Ways to have a Fit Fab Weekend

3 Feb

Happy Friday! Here are three things I think will make this a Fit Fab Weekend!

  1. Try cuffing your jeans: Now that it’s getting just a little warmer here I’m kind of obsessed with this look. Celebs like Katie Holmes, Rachel Bilson and Rosie Huntington Whiteley rock their cuffed jeans on the weekend and I think it’s a great way to show off your favorite flats during the day and heels at night. Pair cuffed jeans with a menwear’s white button down and patent flats like the look on the left or with a blazer like the outfit  on the right (it’s from last month’s InStyle Magazine). Cuff boyfriend jeans for a more casual look or  try cuffing your skinnies for a night out.
  2.  Make a healthy Super Bowl snack: SuperBowl Sunday is here this weekend which means a Boston-New York showdown, awesome commercials and nachos, wings, beer and lots of other football friendly snacks! However, if you want to lighten things up a bit try adding hummus and some veggies to your SuperBowl spread. Just mix in some carrot stick and this healthy “dip” to avoid overindulging on the other stuff;)
  3. Add some plyometrics to your regular workout: Whether you’re running, sweating away on the elliptical or strength training try adding 3 sets of 10-15  jump squats and 3 sets of 15 flying lunges this weekend. Plyos add a fat burning bonus to any workout since they seriously raise your heart rate. Plus they’re great for toning your legs and (bonus!) your abs.
Happy Fit Fab Weekend!
