Have you ever wished you could change something, or maybe a few things, about your body? Leaner legs, flatter stomach, smaller waist, bigger hips, and the list goes on and on. I know that I’ve done it. I think that we all have at one point or another. As women especially, there is so much outside pressure to look a certain way (usually a very unattainable and unrealistic way I have to mention) that it’s hard not to battle with body image issues and wish that you could change certain parts of your body.

It’s officially the holiday season! For a lot of people that means a lot more traveling than normal, making it harder to keep up with your normal fitness routine. I just recently went back home for the Thanksgiving holiday and was doing lots of traveling even while I was there–back and forth between different family members houses, visiting friends, etc. So I thought I would share some tips that I used to stay on track with my fitness routine while I was traveling.
The holidays are right around the corner! For a lot of people that means FOOD! I’m all about enjoying yourself and living life but I also know how I feel after I over-indulge, and its NEVER a good feeling. My family makes an insane amount of food for the holidays and we eat ALL day for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Seriously, all day.
Train for Her Magazine-December 2016
Eek! I am so incredibly grateful and honored to have landed the cover of Train for Her this month for their December issue! Inside I go over one of my dynamic warmups & the importance of warming up before each workout. Please be sure to pick up a copy-it’s on newsstands now! Curious what a dynamic warmup is? I go into more detail in this post, but check out the actual warmup exercises and facts inside this month’s Train for Her magazine!
Let’s face it, ish happens. At one point or another we all go through tough times and setbacks in life. It’s gonna happen. And it’s gonna happen more than once. So why not be armed with some ways to better handle the next struggle that comes your way?
So you’re absolutely hooked on a certain type of workout. You’re in love! You cannot wait until the next session. You leave feeling like a million bucks. AWESOME! You’ve found your ‘it’ workout and that’s amazing! Everyone should find theirs! Just make sure that you don’t get caught up in the same routine day after day. You still need to switch it up and keep things fresh. Chances are, you’ll end up finding another ‘it’ workout too! One that you wouldn’t have ever found had you just kept the same ‘ole routine.
There are sooooo many reasons to workout! Weight loss is usually first on most people’s mind, especially in the beginning, but did you know that there are SOOO many other benefits to working out? AND if you can focus on some of those other reasons it might actually help keep you accountable to your fitness goals. The more reasons you have as to why you’re doing this, the easier it’ll be to follow through, stick with it and make this fitness thing a habit.
