I don’t talk a ton about my fitness routine in this little world of mine, but today I am diving in a little to share how I like to keep a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
Do I make it to the gym everyday? Nope. Sometimes life just gets too dang busy to even go a few times a week. My goal is to hit the gym 4 times a week and at least be active in some way everyday. I just plain feel better when I get to move around!
If I’m too lazy to drive to the gym, I try to go for a run (weather dependent because I’m way too picky) or do a couple yoga sessions from Boho Beautiful’s YouTube channel - LOVE her!! I like to start out with a quick cardio and then focus on one area of the body with weights. I also have a solid cardio day once or twice a week. On the days I just can’t make myself, it’s because I realize that I actually need a day of rest more than I need to run a mile. It’s just as important.
I’m going to be honest here. One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to be able to do pull-ups… real ones. I have the smallest wimpy arms and once I quit dance I wasn’t able to do one anymore!! After working on it I can now say I can do a pull-up, or two ;)
Now to the other side of my balance. Food! I’ve never been someone who loves food and loves to eat; not that I don’t have my favorites I could eat all the time. I just never saw it as a form of entertainment, and maybe that’s why I can never make a decision on where we should go to eat haha.
Now that I cook more on my own, I like to focus on making sure I get enough protein, cut out more salt and sugar, but always, ALWAYS treat my self every now and then. You can’t be eating veggies all the time and not give yourself a break because that’s when a diet or lifestyle comes to a crash. Mix it up and have fun with it but don’t go over board, because that is what actually works.
And my #1 tip: Cute workout clothes. It works every. Single. Time.
