I still remember the moment I realized needed to make a change. I was sitting on my bed after the scale tipped over 200 pounds. How did I let myself get so disconnected with what was happening to my body? Continue reading “My Story: What Are You Waiting For?”
Staying active, consistently, is something we can struggle with. It can be the easiest thing to push aside when life gets busy, I know I am guilty of that at times. I put together this post to inspire you to put more focus on your fitness and help motivate you to reach your goals! Moving your body and being active is a form of self care, and I want you to take care of yourself, so read on and hopefully this help you to start this week!
How many of you scroll through social media and see women crushing their workouts, day after day and it makes you think “I wish I was motivated like they are to workout”? “They make it look so easy”, “I wish I could do that too”. Well, I am here to tell you you can! It’s all in the way you perceive it.
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me….Day 1 of the 12k’s of Christmas challenge. For the next 12 days I plan to run 1 km per day. And I want to invite you along with me! If you’re not a runner, you can walk! Or, if you are looking for a way to get into running, starting with one kilometre a day is a great way to build up your endurance.
If you have been following my blog for a while then it is no secret to you that I am known to have a little bit of an …interest we will say, in active wear. If you read my post on sweatin’ in cute workout clothes then you will know I also am a huge believer that when you feel good in what you are wearing, you are more motivated to be active!
This past Saturday I wrapped up my 21 Day Fix challenge that I completed with a couple other women. It was amazing to have people along on the journey and even more exciting to see other people’s results along the way!
The reason that I decided to embark on this challenge again (as I have already done it before) is that I was feeling like I needed a little bit of a reset. Read More
Today I wanted to share with you a few misconceptions that people have about being active, and exercising. I’m really hoping to bust some of the things that can be used to hold people back or lead people to not be active so that we can all lead a life where we move on the regular!
I have always been looking for a way to get an effective workout in fast. As much as I enjoy working out and the sweat while doing it, I don’t really have the time, nor do I wanted to spend the time working out for multiple hours. Now more than ever, with being a mom and having all the responsibilities that come along with that while maintaining a house and having a life, truthfully it does not leave a whole lot of time to devote to working out.
Cute workout clothes. That’s a thing, right? It certainly is for me!
I have always had a thing for shopping in general and specifically for nice, cute and fun purchases. When I have an exciting event coming up, I like to buy a new outfit. There is something about wearing something new that gives you confidence, you get excited to attend the event because you get to wear that new shirt or dress…it makes you feel good! This love for clothing has most definitely transferred over to my love for activewear.
At the beginning of this year, when I made the decision to buckle down and focus more on getting fit again, I thought to myself, “I should get a new workout outfit!”. I knew this would encourage me to get moving- because I will be excited to wear my new crops. To some, this may sound like a big case of vanity, and everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but let’s just reference back to what I mentioned before. When you wear something that is new, it gives you a little bit of bounce in your step, you feel better… so perhaps there is a chance you might work harder? Just stay with me here, it really does make a difference.
