2 months out of the Summer,Law and Order goes on Haitus.. (Ice shoots with them though-out the year in NYC).During this Hiatus we do a lot of traveling from visiting family in Arizona to hosting clubs all over the country to business meetings in LA.This year we had to go to Monte Carlo for a TV Festival.It was awesome! The picture of the ocean above was the view from out our room at Hotel Hermitage in Monaco…. We mostly worked the whole time while we were there but in-between time we walked around doing the touristy thing and of course shopped…..We hung out with so many cool people, to name a few…Dick Wolf (producer) Julie Benz (Dexter) Jacqueline Macinnes (Bold and Beautiful) Serena Wolf (Dick Wolf’s daughter)Joe Mantegna(Criminal Minds)Taye Diggs(Acter)……To top off a beautiful trip we hopped over to Paris since it was close for a little R and R…I’m telling you,the architech was magnificent in Europe.I saw the Effel tower,the Arc de Triumphe and my favorite thing of all was the Queens bed at the Versailles Palace (the pics are below)I was truely overwelmed by the whole expeirance and put it on top of my list as citys I’d go back to.Oh,can I mention, that the shoe shopping was incredible!.At the”Galleries” in Paris they have a whole floor for every shoe that is made.I couldn’t see the end,it just keep going and going! Pure shoe heaven!! I literaly got light headed when I witnessed this and sat down before I fainted..OK I’m being dramatic but it really was a beautiful sight…. Ice saw my reaction and still to this day makes fun of me..What can I say,I’m a girl……

There are 3 major muscles in your butt u need to build to get that “onion booty”. Here is your basic guide http://instagram.com/p/htofoEBQzm/
When it comes to building legs & booty go hard & heavy or go home! #bootypower I use the Smith machine for assisted squats it makes it easier to push more weight.. start off with alittle weight to get the rythym of the movement and slowly move up .. Normally I do 3 sets usually 10 reps with around 70 pounds on each side but every now and then u have to push your limit like I’m doing here.. please don’t try this unless u know what your doing you’ll hurt yourself. http://instagram.com/p/hOTJiLBQ3v/
I know we hate Planks but do them everyday. Really good 4 your core.Get that tummy right! http://instagram.com/p/gfvnocBQ0E/
Another trick 2 suppress hunger is try chewing gum. Do it right before lunch & you’ll consume less calories than normal.
During workouts of any kind will suppress hunger. Make sure u drink a protein shake afterwards 2 keep u full. Thats what I do.
Take a class on the cadillac equipment in a Pilates session. Great 4 toning upper body & concentrating on flexibility. http://instagram.com/p/bzpOmSBQ8M/
tTis machine is great for the Glute Muscles!You put strap around your ankle and kick 20 times to the back then 20 times to the side repeat on other leg do 3 times on each leg. Make sure you kick your leg as high as you can. http://say.ly/Evr5MmO
Good workout for abs!Prop your body so the tips of toes R on the ball, roll the ball out until body is straight then raise up again. >> say.ly/JaS5Ce0
Believe it or not but balancing on a ball works the whole body especially legs. Don’t try this by yourself.
“Kicks Backs” are great for the rear end..I kick high up so it works the top of the booty muscle http://say.ly/UiW5hJR
Always stretch! It lengthens your muscles..makes u appear longer,even for ppl like me that’s only 5’2… http://say.ly/smh5hJJ
Try taking a Pure Bar class it’s great for the core and toning.its a mix of dance & fitness moves but no aerobics.
I’m constantly changing my fitness routine u got to trick your body to get faster.
Concentrate on you upper legs(quads, hamstrings)& it will automatically tone your butt & make u look curvier.
Get booty & thighs tight by doing Squats that end with a jump. Its easy, squat down low, then jump high. Do 20, rest then repeat.
Greek yogurt is the bomb and is so good for the bod..I start the day with it!Good when your trying to get rid of body fat.
Eat lots of Guacamole!!!! I eat lots of Avacodos,they’re so yummy and good for you..its very good for your hair,makes it healthy & shiny”also,makes nails strong.
Somehow this tip was deleted & honestly I don’t remember what I wrote.Hopefully it will come to me again…
A short effective cardio workout is to Sprint on treadmill as fast u can for about 2 minute then pull in a jog back for 2 minutes(to catch for breath) then repeat-go for 20 mins…..Its great for your thighs.
For those that R asking,personally,my cardio regiment consists of 25 min of sprinting on treadmill 3 times a week or I take a Boxing,Zumba,kickboxing, Dance or Body sculpt class.I even take my dogs jogging at the park.I try to confuse my body & not repeat my routine everyday.
Try out a Power Plate Class.(look for a local class near u maybe google it)It works your whole body but is excellent for the booty.I love it so much I’m gonna get one for home…Its a machine that vibrates lightly while you only workout out on it for 15 minutes to 30 minutes.Just look into it.U won’t be let down.
I wear a sauna sweatsuit to gym and sweat it out for 30 min on treadmill sometimes. I feel 5 pounds lighter.Its mostly water weight that you loose but its also rejuvenating & detoxifying..Not gonna hurt to try it!
I don’t diet!I just eat small portions of food though-out the day & don’t eat a lot of sweets.I start the day w/yogurt or oatmeal & Fish oil pills.
Side-kicking a punching bag is so good for toning the butt & legs..I love how it makes my legs strong..I do 3 sets of 20 reps.
Protein is key to losing weight & also building muscle.Once a day I drink”NuTek Pro5″ Protein Shake for women.Its really yummy too.
When u do ab crunches exhale forcefully at the top of the movement. It forces your abs to work harder & you’ll get more definition.
To work out the top of the butt,lay down (doggie style) with 5 pound ankle weights on & push leg straight out high as possible, hold for 5 seconds, then switch to other leg.
I walk around the mall to shop in heels because I’m giving my calves & quads (front of thighs) a workout.But put lower comfy heels on.I don’t think of wearing heels as a choir but more of a work-out.
Lunges Lunges and more Lunges are the best way to keep your butt and thighs tight.I hold 10 pound weights in each hand when I do mine.
Remember to workout the side of your butt too!.Stand w/ankle weights on,hold on to something like a chair & lift leg high from the side then back, repeat, change legs.
The only way you’ll see ripped abs is eat less fattening foods.PERIOD! You don’t have to take all fats out just lower your intake of meals alittle .I do ab exercises 5 days a week then top it off 20 min cardio.
Ultimate squats!Take medicine ball place n front of u,squat,pick it up,push fast high above your head & slam it down.Do 15 reps,3 sets.
The smaller you can get your waist to look the more shapely & plump your booty will look.Thats why I always finish my workouts w/ab.

Abs!Lay down in a sit up position hold medicine ball up in front of u and twist it from side to side..(Good for those muffins tops).
U may not all agree but for a good fat burner pill try Hdyroxycut. I luv it!
Adductor/Abductor sit machines are great for strong thighs!Pushing weight outwards works the side of butt so u can get that bubble booty.

A great Ab workout is at the gym get on knees in front of cable machine & pull cable rope down until you curl your body in,hold. Repeat.
Build a butt by using heavy weights.No sissy weight!!(Like w/squats) Stay away from butt surgery.Hips should have a little jiggle.
Squat & Kick (kickboxing style) Try kicking to the front & side.But keep your balance.This is very good for the glutes.
I know this sounds gross but colonics R great 4 getting n shape!I always have the flattest stomach afterwards,plus the pounds u lose.

Another great food that speeds up your metabolism is green chili! Mix it up in some eggs & there u have a good protein dish.love it!
No pain, No gain!! Push yourselves hard and you’ll see much faster results. You got to feel some discomfort after working out.
Commit 2 work out 2 lose weight.Going 2 the gym once a year is not gonna cut it.Don’t get mad if u don’t see results right away.
Eat through-out the day.U will actually gain weight if u stop eating.Eat small proportions to keep your metabolism going.Trust me.
Add 30 min cardio to your workout.I like treadmill & stationary bike.Sprint for 5 min as hard as u can then back off for a min.Repeat.
I love protein!The more the better.It helps to maintain a proper diet & good for muscle build. Keep in mind protein bars & shakes!
