New Workout Regime

I do these circuits as many times as I can, usually about 5x. I also do the machines for the corresponding muscle groups, which I forgot to write in. 


Contouring & Highlighting

Ladies! You need to take the time to highlight and contour. When you wear just flat foundation, your face looks bland and lacks definition and dimension. 

It only takes a few minutes, so don't skip it!

A tip I forgot to mention in the vid: highlighter should be 1 to 2 shades lighter than your natural color. Contour should be 1 to 2 shades darker than your natural coloring. :)

Cheesy Quinoa and Broccoli Patties

*Makes 6*

1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
5 large broccoli florets 
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1 large egg
Salt and Pepper for seasoning
Olive oil for cooking


1. First, cook your quinoa according to the directions on the packaging. Once the quinoa has absorbed all the water (this shouldn't take longer than 15 minutes), put it on a plate and let it cool completely.

2. Next, saute your diced onion until it's soft and translucent. Set aside and let cool completely. Cook your broccoli until it has softened a little bit, then let it cool as well. Once the broccoli has cooled completely, dice it into small pieces.

3. Now that you have everything ready, in a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together, leaving the egg until the end. Mix well so you have a smooth, wet mixture that will allow you to make patties that will stick together.

4. Heat some olive oil in a pan, and make your patties. I made each using 1/4 cup of the mixture. Just make a ball out of the mixture, and squash it down a little bit. Cook each patty for about 7 - 8 minutes on each side on medium heat. You want the patty to develop a crust, but not to burn, so watch them carefully. Let cool for a couple of minutes before eating.
