All the Motivation You Need: Health & Fitness

I feel like working out and eating healthier are two of the most common new year resolutions people try to keep.
Let's be honest: every one wants to be skinner and healthier, right?

Loosing weight and changing your lifestyle isn't an easy task.

I like food.  A lot.
I don't believe in depriving myself of sweets or a few chips.
I don't think it's healthy to live that way.  I've tried only eating "healthy food" and I can't tell you how many times depriving myself of these little treats has been unsuccessful.

So instead of making unrealistic goals to only eat healthy and work out everyday, I plan on setting goals that will help me work towards living a healthy lifestyle without jumping right to this huge lifestyle change.

So I thought I would share how I plan on incorporating steps and reaching my goal of living a healthy lifestyle into my everyday routine.

1. Eat Breakfast
Okay, so I know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I really just don't like eating that early.  Nor do I really have the time to eat before school.  But I'm hoping to start eating breakfast on a regular basis now.  I'm hoping to get in a lot of fruits in the morning since it's easy to just grab and go!  I love these Naked Juices - especially the berry one!  They are very filling and filled with the same vitamins and nutrients that fruits contain!

2. Try New Workouts
I feel like such a loser for saying this, but I actually do enjoy working out.  However, I do get bored very easily.  That is why for me, it's important to change up my routine every once in a while.  I'm hoping to try out different workouts this year like barre classes and the so popular, Soul Cycle (they just opened one in the town over!).  

3. Find a Workout Buddy
I have always been a solo kind of girl at the gym.  I have never liked going with fiends because I feel like I don't get a good workout in because I'm too busy gossiping with my best friend.  But maybe a gym buddy would be fun and make the hour go by faster!

Still not feeling motivated?

Don't worry, I got you covered.

Again, being completely honest here, new stuff always makes everything better.
I live for cute workout clothes.  Between Nike, LuLuLemon, and every other store that now sells great workout clothes, there is definitely a sports bra or sneaker that will make you want to hit the gym!!
All the Motivation You Need

Okay, so you got the clothes.  But don't know where to start with the squats?
Again, I got you covered.

Meet my friends (not really, but I like to think so!) Karena & Katrina.
They are the two most fun girls to workout with (again, not literally, but virtually!).
They have amazing personalities and create workouts that are extremely easy to follow.
And did I mention they also have numerous yummy, and of course healthy, recipes!
Check out their videos here!

Another amazing 'Youtuber', Cassey creates fun, but challenging videos.  These are perfect to do during a homework break since they aren't too long.  However don't let the short time fool you, I promise you that you'll feel it the next day!
Check out her videos here!

I'll stop rambling now but to end this on a serious note, I'm committed to working toward a healthy lifestyle and hope that you'll join me on this journey! (#cheesefest)

Let me know how you work towards a healthy lifestyle!
