8 Do's and Don'ts of Traveling With Your S.O.

A few weeks ago, I went to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida with my family. (I'm sure you saw pics on Insta and Twitter!) Like every other vacation, I had a blast! However, this one was a little different because I traveled with my boyfriend. B-I-G step; I know! Instead of doing a typical travel diary, I thought I would share some of the do's and don'ts for the next time you travel with your bae.

1. DO pick a destination you are BOTH interested in.

This was kind of, very last minute. However, we both have a love for Disney, so it worked out! We're in the works of planning our next adventure now.

2. DON'T under pack.

Be sure to double and triple check your suitcase. You don't want to have to worry about clothes, toiletries, etc. on your getaway. Click here to checkout my carry-on essentials.

3. DO plan.

Take the time to go through Pinterest and see what cool things there are to do in the place you're visiting. My boyfriend and I watched a ton of YouTube videos on the best places to eat in Walt Disney World. We made sure to hit at least 3 of them-- yum!

4. DON'T be afraid to go with the flow.

Not everything goes according to plan. Don't let it ruin your mood! Role with the punches; everything will work itself out.

5. DO compromise.

I really wanted to go on the Frozen ride in Epcot. My boyfriend was so sweet and waited the 2 hour wait with me. However, I made sure to do the same thing with him when he wanted to hop on Soarin'. 

6. DON'T demand high standards of one another.

Treat each other as if you were back home.

7. DO take lots of pictures.

This is going to be one for the books-- I promise!

8. DON'T be afraid to try something new.

2019 is all about trying new things and making the most out of them. Step out of your comfort zone with one another!

My Poppin' Workout Routine

With summer right around the corner, I thought I would share my current workout routine with y'all. Over the past year, I've become addicted to working out. It's true: when you see results, you become obsessed. I've noticed a huge difference in my legs and abs. 

Leg Day
  • Side Kick Squat (5x each leg)
  • Hip Thrust (15x)
  • Donkey Kick (20x each leg)
  • Side Lunge (5x each leg)
  • Single-Leg Hip Extension (10x each leg)
  • Side-Lying Leg Raise (20x each leg)
  • Plie squat (20x)
  • Hip Bridge Hold (1 minute)
Repeat 3 times. Sometimes, I get bored doing this routine 3 times, so I'll change different exercises. For example, I'll do curtsey lunges instead of side lunges, rainbows in place of single-leg hip extensions, and jump squats instead of plie squats. 

Ab Day
  • Speed Walk (0.5 miles)
  • Cross Jacks (30x)
  • Side Knee Raise (10x each leg)
  • Full Plank (1 minute)
  • Sit Ups (20x)
  • Russian Twist (20x each side)
  • V-Sit (1 minute)
  • Single Leg V-Up (5x each leg)
  • Bicycle Kicks (30x)
  • Cat Camel Exercise (5 breaths)
  • Cobra Pose (5 breaths)
Repeat 3 times.

Bikini Body Day
  • Butt Kicks (30x)
  • Squat Jump (20x)
  • Plank Hip Twist (10x each side)
  • Donkey Kick (20x each leg)
  • Single-Leg Hip Extension (15x each leg)
  • Squat Thrust (20x)
  • Vertical Leg Crunch (20x)
  • Side Plank Knee Crunch (15x each side)
  • Up and Down Plank (10x)
Repeat 2 times.

If you don't burn by the end of any of these workouts, then you're doing somethings wrong. My butt always burns by the end of the third set. My abs burn after the first one; they still need some work.  My workouts are inspired by the 7M Women app. The app tracks your workouts and the calories you burn. I love it! (Not sponsored!)
