GYM CHALLENGE – EVL NUTRITION

So, I was approached by EVL Nutrition to collaborate and feature them, I decided to do something more than just post a picture with my new products, I had the bright idea of doing a 2-month experiment. I asked EVL Nutrition to send me products for me to take during the next 8 weeks and see how good they work on me. I usually take my protein shake and that’s it but for this blog post we went all the way and added a Pre-Workout engine, a Recovery product, the Lean BCAA, and Stacked Protein. So… here a few pictures of how I look now, not my best pictures, but you can see my body. I started taking these products a week ago and I am training 4 days a week. I am taking the Lean BCAA early in the morning when I wake up, then I take the pre workout 30min before I go to the gym, then right after my dumbbell sets, I take two scoops of the protein and before I go to …

CONTEXT SKIN CARE

So… many of you always ask me If i wear sunscreen. What do I do to keep my skin looking good, or if I’m taking care of it. Two months ago, and I’m a little ashamed to say it, because I have these Context products for over two months now that are waiting to be reviewed. A good instafriend of mine sent them to me, it’s a new company he said, just try them he insisted. But for me, to be able to review a skin care product you really need to use it and try it and I don’t think a week or two is enough time to determine if it is a good product. After 2 months using it almost every night, and I say almost because sometimes weekends I forget (I also forget to take my clothes off… You know what I mean…) I can tell you it is a great kit to take care of your face. I have the night cream, I use it after washing my face with the …

WHAT’S GOOD? GARDEN FRESH | ARUBA

So… I’m exploring new flavors, which is always a good thing. Especially when we are talking about food. If we are being honest, it’s one of the best things in the world In this post I want to talk about two smoothies, “The Cure” which is the green one, this little juice here is the perfect cure for a hangover. It contains lemon juice, aloe vera, kale, green apple, and ginger… this is a bomb but a good one, that will make you feel better in no time… Have one, run on  the beach and take a swim… you’ll be feeling like a brand new person by the time you are done. You will have worked up an appetite for sure after all that exercise. My recommendation would be a burrito, you really need something that will sit good in your stomach and replenish your energy reserves. It’s packed full of protein, filled with black beans, fresh veggies. That’s a perfect lunch for someone recovering from a hangover.    Now, if you were a good …

ARUBA | GARDEN FRESH

So, I’ve started my diet again. Training hard at the gym and getting ready not only for carnival season but for every season. Looking and feeling good should always be a priority in your life. Garden Fresh is the best option when it comes to eating fit and fresh in Aruba, also the most hip and fashionable healthy restaurant, which is always a plus. They serve a wide range of smoothies and juices. The morning sunshine smoothie to me is one of the best, my favorite I have to say. There’s a wide variety of healthy food, there’s wraps and paninis, you have salads as well. Create your own salad is the best option for me, especially at night… now that I am on a zero carb diet I can just go there, pick my favorite protein (usually chicken) and then ask for the veggies I like. It’s a life saver to be honest and they don’t sell anything that could be a temptation… like coca cola, you know? Things that are not supposed to …
