bikini_girl-summer

Aaaahhh…its officially that time of the year again, the oh so dreaded “swim suit season” is on the horizon!

We are 21 Days from the Memorial Day Holiday, which for many marks the start of all things summer! Never fear, we are going to get you ready!

We could all use a little motivation to get up and at em and back at in the gym! So, we are going to start the flow of positive motivation coming your way daily for the next 21 Days!

First, things first….if you are stuck in a rut, in regards to your fitness routine, here are a few things that you can arm yourself with today to help get your mind back in the LIVING FIT mode!

 

1) NEW KICKS! – for some reason, buying new running shoes always gets us motivated to hit the gym! We are loving the new NIKE FREE series. For about $100 a pair, they won't break the bank and they come in so many great color combos. Also, LIKE the Nike Women fan page on Facebook. Its packed with motivational tips and tricks that we can't get enough of. Thank you Nike for "getting it." 

 

2) VISUAL STIMULATION – We hate to do it, because we believe beauty starts from the inside out, but lets face it….this will get your ass movin!

Another GET UP AND GET MOVIN daily read to help you out we love, Reasons To Be Fit! They do a fantastic job of getting to the point and getting inside your head to kick your inner cheerleader into high performance gear!

 

3) KEEP YOUR HEAD RINGIN! – One of the most motivating factors for us in the gym is what’s loaded on the Ipod. Create a new workout playlist and change it up. Need some suggestions? Ask as you shall receive! You can even purchase and download the tracks right here too! Thank you technology!

 

 

 

 

4) YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT! – Probably the most effective thing you can do in regards to achieving a “leaner” you is putting the nutrition card into play. Did you know that 80% of your results are going to come from your diet and not what you are doing in the gym? So before you kill yourself with that 1 hour cardio blast, try this instead. Fuel your body with the right healthy foods throughout the day and that’s one less hour you’ll have to spend on the elliptical. Here’s a good rule of thumb when hitting the grocery store. Shop only on the outside aisles, stay away from the middle of the store (the home of all things processed). Fresh fruits and veggis, along with lean proteins and healthy fats (like avocadoes) are what you need!

Now, a healthy diet combined with a good 30-45 minutes of heart pumping activity a day is going to be a recipe for a healthy body inside and out. (We’ll dive more into the nutrition side later this week). Remember, not all calories are created equal…so just because you think you are reducing your caloric intake daily, its more about where those calories are coming from vs. how many you are consuming. That was a hint to put the overly processed bagel and cream cheese down ladies.

 

5) START AT HOME!  Are you short on time or maybe funds to actually get you to a gym or to a that hot new yoga class? Never fear….there are lots of great toning moves you can do to get ya started. Here’s a fun graphic we found on Pinterest. You can even print out and tape to the fridge. Do these at home…all ya need is a little motivation and a jump rope and you are on your way!

GET IT!
