I am so excited to share with you all something I love so much – health and fitness! For me, working out and eating healthy is a lifestyle. That being said, I am not perfect! I think of it as the 80 x 20 rule. 80% of the time I make healthy choices and 20% I fuel my cravings. For example, if I order a burger I ask for no bun and instead get fries. It is all about the choices we make.
Another key part of a healthy lifestyle is consistency. I get the question all the time, “how do you stay motivated?” And I just saw an awesome quote and it totally stuck with me because this is my answer. “Screw motivation, what you need is discipline.” I am super disciplined – no matter if I am feeling it or not I go to the gym. Trust me, I have never regretted a workout. I am also fortunate enough that my husband enjoys the same passion as me so this is something we love to do together. If you need help becoming discipline, find a workout buddy! You can hold each other accountable.
As far as my workout schedule goes I work out Monday – Saturday and incorporate cardio (running, elliptical, HIIT) and targeted lifting into my daily routine. Why? Honestly, it makes me feel good. Working out starts my day in such a positive way – mind, body,and soul (I love that). I hope if anything, this post gives you fire to get moving and begin your journey to a healthier YOU.
