Heisler Park (Laguna Beach, CA)

Dress: Brandy Melville (similar version here), Shoes: Vans Off The Wall, Bag: Loeffler Randall Jr. Work Tote, Sunglasses: Betsey Johnson
I had some family staying in Laguna Beach this week, so it was the perfect opportunity to take in more of this quaint little beach town and work on photographing some more scenery to use artwork for the apartment (more on this coming soon). I hadn't been to Heisler Park before, since it is north of the famed main beach in Laguna, even though we frequently find ourselves strolling pacific coast highway on lazy weekend afternoons.

The park is situated is up on cliff, so views of the beach, shoreline, and vegetation is amazing. The dress I wore was a comfortable knit from Brandy Melville, not only was it ~$30 (but currently sold out online) the long sleeves and knit texture kept me warm enough to hang for a leisurely sunset dinner on the patio of Las Brisas.

Hope you dolls had a great weekend, and don't forget to enter my giveaway by commenting on my last post. Thanks!

Built By Science Trainer


Hi dolls,

I mentioned on my instagram (@chicinsneakers) a few weeks ago I was going to do another bodybuilding.com trainer, since I have had so much positive feedback and follow up questions about my review of the Elite Body Trainer that I did almost a year ago! 

Bodybuilding.com has so many great plans, and especially before I became a personal trainer, it was such a key resource for helping me plan my workouts and progress towards my goals. I picked the Built By Science trainer after a little research. I wanted a trainer that was 8 weeks or less, intermediate to advanced level, and focused on muscle building (rather than fat loss). Also, I wanted a program with enough rest days to fit in some light intensity yoga and pilates workouts I like to do for flexibility and core strength.

To you lovelies who have been following along with my fitness journey for a while now, you know one of my pipe dreams is to become a bikini competitor, but I have quite a few obstacles that make that goal more arduous than it should be. Primarily, if you can't tell from my twig arms in the photo above, I am a Class A ectomorph and have a hard time gaining weight and/or muscle. Along with lots of work travel, I have a hard time with overly restrictive meal and workout plans.

In general my goals are always muscle building, general health, and reducing my body fat in the process. The last time I had a reliable measurement a few months ago, I was 17.1%, and I'm trying to work towards 15-16%. 

I will have a full synopsis of this plan in about a month, once I've completed the trainer. Have questions or comments? Any favorite BB.com plans you want me to try? Let me know on instagram or twitter @chicinsneakers!

Also, my first giveaway ever is coming up in the next week! Stay tuned, it's going to be good.
