We are so excited to feature Blogger Paulina Machaj this week! We were so inspired by her passion for health and fitness and wanted to share a part of her work out routine. It's never too late to start your 2017 health journey or find some motivation in a new work out routine! 

So we wanted to know a little bit about Paulina and what she does to get such an awesome core! 💪

But first! We asked her a few questions about herself:  


What are your 2017 New Year goals?

My 2017 New Year goals are to continue working out 3-4 times a week and eat a balanced diet 90% of the time. When working out, I mostly lift heavy. My goal is to increase my weights this year. Besides lifting, I want to incorporate more yoga and would love to take a few dance classes. I've always loved to dance but never got a chance to take any dance classes at my local gym. 

What are some tips you have for staying motivated to work out and eat healthy?

My biggest tip to stay motivated would have to be how well I feel after working out. These workouts don't take me that long but I feel so refreshed after. I've realized my skin loves when I workout as well! When eating healthy, I don't feel bloated or heavy. I think this is the biggest benefit for me. I absolutely love food and I eat a lot so feeling lean after every meal because it's healthy feels amazing.


What is your favorite healthy thing to snack on?

My absolute favorite thing to snack on is dark chocolate. I love 85% cocoa and can eat the whole bar if I'm not careful... I also love to snack on almonds, cashews and pistachios. I always carry them around in my purse just in case I get hungry throughout the day. 


Where is your dream vacation?

My dream vacation is Bora Bora. I love love love the beach, the water, palm trees and warmth. The water in Bora Bora is so blue and clear and the overall place is beautiful.  

Who is your biggest role model?

My biggest role model is Nikki Blackketter. I started watching her YouTube videos a while back. I'm not a huge fan of dieting or restricting myself from specific foods and I think Nikki balances out her workouts and meals perfectly. I'm all about working out to get bigger and stronger muscles and Nikki motivates me to just that.
