Being active has become such an important part of my life. Whether I’m running around the block, hiking with friends, dancing in the kitchen, or jumping around in a circuit workout, physical activity keeps me sane. I try to incorporate some sort of movement into my daily routine because it helps me feel alive and in control. Plus, the confidence I get from feeling strong is an amazing perk.
I do my best to stick to a consistent workout schedule each week. Usually, my goal is to do some sort of workout six days a week. Sometimes I’m too busy and can’t make that work, but I do what I can and pick up the next week with that goal.
In my never-ending journey to be fit and healthy, there are a few ways that I stay motivated. Check ’em out!
There are so many exercises out there, and I don’t even know half of them. I try to keep learning new ones and incorporate them into my workouts to work different muscles and to mix things up a little.
If you’re like me and occasionally come across exercises that you’re not familiar with, you might benefit from my exercise guide. I’ve provided a list of common exercises I use and have linked videos to each one. This should help you get an idea of how to perform the exercise you don’t know.
Pick your poison! My weekly schedule of workouts usually revolves around running and circuit workouts (weight- or cardio-based). I try to run a few days a week and do circuits or get outside for other activities the rest of the time.
Since I’ve started this blog, my collection of at-home workouts has become quite extensive because I’m always creating new routines. The workouts that I love and think are worth repeating I share in posts for you to try out as well!
The #1 way I’ve been able to stay accountable for working out has been logging my workouts. I highly recommend recording yours as well. Simply writing down the general workout you did each day makes looking back on your progress pretty amazing. Seeing your commitment to getting active can be a great motivating tool for yourself to keep going!
