I decided to share my thoughts on a fitness app that I have been using for a few months -- Body Love App by Anna Victoria.
I found out about the app because I follow Anna Victoria on Instagram -- I would consider her a fitness and health blogger, but not like a bodybuilder :) Since the app offered a free trial, I decided to give it a shot.
Of course, the App Store has you pick the subscription you would be interested in after the trial because it automatically renews if you don't click cancel before the end of the trial.
The subscription options:
I decided to continue using the app after the two weeks because it really makes you break a sweat! Even at the beginner/intermediate level. I keep switching the levels because my legs are weak but my arms are strong.
You have access to a meal plan, motivational/informational videos, and a number of workouts that are planned for each day.
Monday: Leg + Glute
Tuesday: Cardio + Abs
Wednesday: Arms + Back
Thursday: Cardio + Abs
Friday: Full Body
Saturday: Cardio + Abs
You can access the workouts whenever, so if you want to do legs+glutes on Weds instead of Monday, you can! If you want to repeat a workout, you can! The goal is to complete the workout within 30 minutes. Once you can do it easily, then you bump up to the next level.
There is more in the video!
I hope you enjoy!
I don't know what it is about the Fall and Winter, but I always crave food that reminds me of home... especially food that tends to be on the unhealthy side! Although Shepard's Pie is jampacked with veggies, the gluten and the starch makes it not so. This version is gluten and dairy free, and super easy!

Doesn't Hyaluronic Acid sound dangerous?? Like we should stay away from it? That's what I thought, and that's why it took me this long to try it! Well during my annual "mole check" I brought up that I was really nervous about my consistent, super dry skin. My dermatologist recommended giving hyaluronic acid a try, since it can alleviate dry skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and speed up healing.
Since I am an avid Amazon Prime subscriber, I thought I would go there to learn more about the different products. The one that stuck out at me was the one with over 10,000 reviews with a 4.5 rating!
It's by TruSkin, and includes Vitamin C and Vitamin E. I have been using it for about 60 days, and I love it! I have noticed my sun spots slowly disappear (shame on me, but first summer in Texas!), a glow in my skin, brightness is back, and my skin doesn't have the awful dry, cracking feeling... AS MUCH. I still have a semi-flakey nose and the random flaky spots from cheating on my diet. However, since I have seen dramatic improvement, I am going to keep investing in this product.
