Homemade Body Scrub Recipe

Have you ever read the ingredient list on the back of one your beauty products? You’d be shocked at how many ingredients there are on the back. I personally don’t always feel comfortable putting all of the foreign products on my body so I am a huge fan of this homemade body scrub that I have recently perfected.

My Journey To Thicker Legs (The Thick Thighs Chronicles) Pt. 1

I have always strived to be skinny (or thin), nicely toner, but long and lean overall. I am tired of that. I think muscular legs on women (to an extent) are very attractive and in this process I am also trying to add definition to my arms and slim my mid section. I’m not trying to look like a bikini model and have absolutely no desire to get “bulky” I just want thicker muscles and bigger calves.

Day 1: I’m looking at pictures of girls with naturally muscular legs and feeling bad about myself (unhealthy, but true) I’m trying to turn in into motivation as I am on my way to the gym.

I lifted pretty heavy and I’m satisfied with my gym performance today. Gonna go eat a big meal and treat myself to a snapple.

Day 2: I am sore. Ate quite a bit (including pancakes) but it’s ok… I’m growing! I went for a long walk and did one hill sprint before I decided I was just gonna go home.

Day 3: I’m about to lift again… I’ll keep y’all posted.

Okay, so I lifted… (25 reps w 150) and (5 reps w 160  x2) then (50 reps w my calves with 150) after 20 jump squats.Now I’m eating a giant veggie burger, a sandwich, and a bag of dates. Tonight I’m going to do my abs and some push ups.

Day 4: I could go to the gym today, but I’m not sure if I should.. don’t want to over work my muscles but I want t do as much as possible… (lifting struggles)

Okay so I read a little, and I shouldn’t lift today. I’m going to do  couple hill sprints and some jump squats. – I’m not sore today p.s but I am STARVING.

I ate an extremely weird combo of food today, and it wasn’t all super healthy, but it wasn’t junk.

Day 5: I rested.. lol

Day 6: Hills, abs, jump squats, and regular lunges.

Day 7: I ran and ate a lot of bread

Okay guys so I’ll post my leg work out from heaven ASAP and I will chronicle my next week of leg development.
