Hey friends! I don’t know about you during this time but it has felt crazy slow. One thing that helps make the time go fast is through fitness! I have loved spending 30-60 minutes out of my day to keep my fitness levels up. I am going to give you five tips on how I’ve been able to stay motivated by working out at home.
I have a water bottle next to me constantly throughout the day. I absolutely love having the metal straw with a rubber tip or my Starbucks plastic cup. I fill it up 3-4 times throughout the day with a half a packet of Crystal Lite Raspberry Green Tea flavor. This makes it a bit easier for getting my water in my system. If it helps, set out an app on your phone to remind you to drink water.
- Set goals for the day
If you know me, you know I have my list of things to get done for the day. One of my goals each day is to workout and if nice, go for a walk. My workouts consist of body weight or 3 lbs dumbbells and I still managed to burn 437 calories in 50 minutes on Saturday. You just have to be doing the right moves and the right amount of cardio. Keep your body moving!
- Get dressed/do your hair
If I am in sweatpants and a cozy sweater, catch me in bed. If I put on my workout leggings and a tank top, catch me working out (how about that). Put in a cute braid then snap a pic before or after to encourage your friends to do the same!
- Follow Instagram fitness influencers
There are a ton of influencers who are posting at home workouts. I will list my favorite ones here: @carterrosefitness, @_brittanylupton, and @lindseylivingwell. There are many more out there! Check out the explore page or the #workoutsforwomen to find some!
- YouTube workout videos
I did mine for the first time today, it was for real! It was so much fun and it felt like you were taking a free fitness class. I did a Zumba you can find here. If you search “At home workout” or “Bodyweight workout” even “Zumba” you will find so much helpful information there!
I hope these tips help you stay motivated each day where you can keep track of your goals. Make a list, drink your water, get dressed, and get to it!
