my favorite gym workout

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a workout with y’all, so I wanted to post one! And since tomorrow is National Fitness Day, I thought it would be a perfect day to do so. This is one of my favorite workouts for when I exercise on my own. It is going to require some gym equipment + a few other at-home workout items, but there are almost always modifications to make it fit with the resources you have!

my motivational playlist

my motivational playlist

It’s Friday, folks, and it’s already spring break season! For me (even though I’m not a student anymore) this time of year tends to be a reality check when it comes to my health – am I where I wanted to be? Have I been as disciplined as I should have been? Regardless of the answer, I try not to beat myself up. Instead, I use it as an opportunity to learn what has or hasn’t worked for me and what I can fix moving forward.

When it comes to my workouts, having a motivational playlist is a must. I feel like it’s no shocker that a playlist can really make or break your workout – for me, having a playlist that excites + pumps me up increases the chances that I’m going to follow through with it, so I wanted to share my current workout playlist!

wellness wednesday: tips for getting active at work

wellness wednesday: tips for getting active at work

I’m no stranger to being confined to a chair all day. Nearly all of my jobs prior to my job now required standing, walking around, heavy lifting… even being a student I was constantly darting around campus and easily racking up 12,000-15,000 steps a day – so starting a desk job was a little bit of a culture shock for me. At first, in terms of my health, it didn’t seem so bad. But eventually the weight gain began, my spine and neck started to feel all out of whack, and my energy level was at an all time low.

full body cardio workout

full body cardio workout

First of all, I’m going to ask that you please excuse all the mirror selfies in this post lol I moved this post up a couple weeks due to demand so I worked with what I had. BUT. Onto the actual point of this post. Since we’re all motivated and hitting the gym right now, I wanted to give you guys one of my favorite workout routines to try out. I think it can get really easy – especially for us women – to hop on the treadmill every workout and call it good. And while it’s a good starting point to get comfortable with the gym and its atmosphere, strength training is where you’re going to find some of your best results.

making time for the gym with a busy schedule + january habit tracker

It’s always easy to get to the gym in the beginning of the new year when we feel all motivated, but then the reality of life sets back in and our schedules tend to get in the way of our good intentions.

The brutal truth I had to tell myself when I was letting my schedule get in the way of my going to the gym is this: it’s an excuse. It might be true, as young or established professionals we’re definitely kept busy and have other things that take up our time and energy, but if it’s something that’s important to you, you’ll make time. Since I’ve had to learn this firsthand, I wanted to give y’all some tips on how I did it for myself!
