Homebody Workouts

Hello Darlings, 

I love the gym, but I also have a lot going on and sometimes I can't get there as often as I'd like, that's where technology comes in handy. With technology today there is absolutely no reason we can't stay healthy and not only that but track our progress!

Here are a few tools to help you stay fit without the gym:  

 Pinterest. Here are some great workouts to choose from:

WOD: Filthy 50  

Ultimate At-Home Workout

30 Minute Full Body Workout

Summer HIIT Workout

Cardio Workout, At Home!

MyFitnessPal. This FREE app allows you to track your food and calories quickly. They share recipes, workouts, and guilt-free cheat meals regularly. I've been using it about three years now and no complaints here! You're also able to input your workouts to see how many calories you've burned and it will update your calorie intake to reflect your workout. I love it! 

Runtastic. This is a great FREE app for runners, walkers or for people who have very active jobs and want to track how many miles they walk in a day. What's also great about this is it will sync to MyFitnessPal and input your workout for you, so you don't have to do a darn thing! 

Mealtime. This is an amazing dinner prep app that I like to use to get meal ideas. The initial cost is free but in order to keep using the app you have to upgrade. I think once you use it you'll find it's totally worth it. You pick from a catalog of meals for the entire week based off of your preferences. Once your meals are picked, it will generate a grocery list for you. They also give you the recipe to make it easily at home and most of the meals take under 30 minutes! It's absolutely fantastic. 

There are so many different possibilities out there and what doesn't work for you may work for someone else and vice versa. These are my go-to apps that I have on my phone and I've been using them for years! It makes life a lot easier to stay healthy and eliminates time wasted in the long run. I highly suggest trying these out, plus they're free and it can't hurt.

Spice Up Your Fit-Life

Hello Darlings! 

As January drags on and we are all “gung-ho” about our workout plans, I wanted to give a few ideas to spice up your fit-life, because after all we’re all in this together: 

Workout Ideas: 

  1. Get Outside - break up your typical routine and go on a hike! 
  2. Try a new sport or join a league, nothing better than getting physically competitive.
  3. Try a Pinterest workout challenge to add to your routine everyday and keep track of your progress. Here is one I’ve tried in the past, 30-Day Arm Challenge. 
  4. Take a workout class with a friend at your local gym or yoga studio. Try something you’ve always wanted to but never have.
  5. Sign up for a race (make it fun like the Color Run or Bubble Run), and train for it! If you’re a beginner I highly recommend the Couch to 5K app. It took me from HATING to run to running 4 miles 2-3 times per week! I ran the Color Run 5K race that year as well, It's one of my favorite memories.

Food Ideas: 

We all have those dinner recipes we love, and don’t really want to give up so here are some ingredient replacement ideas because we can have our cake and eat it to:
