Motivation Monday

Good morning everyone! I don’t know about you- but this is how I’m feeling this Monday morning haha! (or to be honest- MOST mornings :-) )

But hey- it’s a brand new week and I’m ready to go. My husband and I have been working out hard as of lately- we seem to be having a little competition going with ourselves on who can be fittest by summer. 😉 just kidding- but we have been eating well, working out hard, and loving to see our progress! 

Our newest workouts have included a lot of olympic lifting and I’ve really been lifting some heavy weights. I’ve never consistently done heavy lifting, I would do it here and there, but now that I”ve been doing it for the past few weeks- I have been happily surprised by myself! It’s been making me feel great and I’m really feeling those muscles bro

Just a little reminder to do what you love, and make it enjoyable! Finding joy in the little things in my life makes it that much more amazing. Life is full of some bad things, so keeping focus on the little joys in life is the way to go. Here is what I’ve found to bring me the most joy lately.

Training Tips Thursday

Hey there, Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend…phew!

Today I wanted to offer you some of my general tips on fitness. These are just some tips that may squash some myths and pump up your current fitness regime!

1. Make exercise a part of your normal routine 

Build yourself up gradually, take a day off when needed, but just keep going! 4-5 days a week of a legitimate workout and stay active the days you take off from exercise.

2. Do what you love to do

Find what you love and what motivates you to work out! These are the things that will keep you consistent.

3. BUT- Don’t be afraid to try something new

Never lifted weights before? Recruit a friend who is seasoned in weights and ask them to show you the ropes. Or maybe you get a friend to try a new class with you… You never know until you try! Honestly- YouTube can be a great place to start to look at proper form. 

4. Carbs are not the enemy

Carbs are not evil! Carbs give you the energy you need to workout! Eat them around your workout time (before & after) to boost your workouts.  

5. You don’t have to eat less & exercise more to lose weight

Finda a balance. When you workout more, your body needs those nutrients to rebuild muscle. Restricting calories can leave your body weak. Eat foods you love, restricting foods will only make you crazy! 

6. Don’t forget to work your core

Your core muscles help everything work better when performing daily tasks, and for workouts. Keep them strong by doing planks and core exercises.

7. Compare yourself to no one- YOU are your only competition

This might be easier said than done- but you are different that anyone else and your workouts will not look the same, nor will your bodies. Keep pushing yourself and take note of the milestones you achieve.

Fitness Friday

Fitness Friday! I have chosen to link up with Jill and lots of others to share our Fitness & Health Posts!

Fitness Friday is all about sharing inspiration and passion for fitness and health. Sharing little successes and progress and ‘meeting’ new people! You know..social media meeting 😉

Today I’d like to share with you a little workout I made to help my 10 day Fitness & Meal Challenge group. This group was a ton of fun to lead and I loved giving them different workouts to do. This is a particular workout they did in the beginning and then again at the end to see if they could improve their time!

You should be able to complete this for 2 sets, with the Jumping Jacks & Butt kicks in between to give you the cardio aspect of the workout. This isn’t a long workout by any means so it’s just a nice workout when you are pressed for time, or just need a quick strength circuit after cardio. 

I hope you enjoy it- if you try it let me know!

Also, 5 more days to sign up for my boot camp that begins on March 2nd!

Have a great Friday, and a wonderful weekend! :-)
