I’m sharing some tips that me and @juliettelauer use to stay motivated and fit through cooler weather and holiday festivities. • 1 • Buddy system! Recruit a friend you RESPECT to be your backup. Communicate! You want to keep the positive vibes flowing, invite them on a run, share about your healthy meal choices, tag them in posts that keep you on track (hey, tag your buddy in this one). We focus more on positive than negative, so instead of texting something like “I want french fries so baddddd” we mostly ignore the bad, and text about the good “my green smoothie was so good this morning.” • 2 • Treat yo self! To all the GOOD stuff. Telling yourself yes to good things is way easier than just saying no all the time. Learn to make the good stuff what you crave, by choosing healthy seasonal ingredients for holiday meals, like my butternut squash soup, sweet potato and honey crisp apple frittata, or my protein snickerdoodle cookie dough. If you missed the recipes on my story, leave a comment here or dm me for them. Another way to treat yourself - new workout clothes that you feel great in (these are @soulgani.activewear use “frenchfry15 for 15% off). • 3 • And final thing I focus on is getting outside when the weather cools down. In Florida we live for these cooler months when it’s soooo nice out, but if you’re in a cooler climate, try to find ways to get outside for a few minutes a few times a week, bundle up and take your dog for a walk, or your workout buddy, fresh air is a natural mood booster and helps you *want* to be good. Dm me if you want more on any of these tips!
Last night at the #kitterycommunitycenter we noticed an increase in people at the gym. Not sure if they are people like us who are bringing their exercise inside due to the dark evenings or If people are thinking “thighs before pies”! Another great workout with my #fitnessbuddy. I feel stronger than a month ago! #progress#myfitnessjourney
When someone makes you a better person 👭💕 I’m happy I get to share this #transformationtuesday with my Best Friend❣️
When I first started working at my current job in the gym I noticed this gal (beyond athletic) doing everything in the gym, was so strong and was so inspired by all her hard work. Lucky enough we became friends and trying to keep up with this women was TOUGH lol 😅. I would ALWAYS make “good” excuses not to do anything active... well throughout the years of knowing this women she’s inspired me to be where I am today. One crazy fitness chick - now bringing her to all my fitness craziness 🤪
Just a shoutout to someone who deserves her shining moment. Your inspiring and positivity changed me and look at us now! #fitnessbuddy 4life✌🏼❤️
