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.Continue reading “full body cardio workout”
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.

looking back on this year, my gym routine has been all over the place.

this week it has felt unreal that yet another school year has started that I won’t be attending as a student. I still miss my days of darting across campus and being surrounded by the buzz of my fellow peers despite how slammed I was between classes, homework, and my job(s). however, I found it was that hectic phase of my life that taught me important lessons about how to implement + maintain healthy habits even when I’m running from one thing to the next and don’t always have the time or energy to make a meal on the spot. so today, I’m telling you my favorite ways of keeping a healthy diet + habits! while the title says for “busy schedules,” these are obviously practices anyone can use. these worked for me as both an active, over-scheduled student and as a sedentary, 9-5 young professional.Continue reading “how to maintain a healthy diet with a busy schedule”
