I have to be 100% honest with you all, it’s HARD balancing a healthy lifestyle. Some say it’s impossible, but like my bio – even the word impossible has I’m possible in it.
As you all know (if you’re a new reader, keep on reading and you’ll be all caught up!), I recently started my full time job which has a longer work day than most. I wake up everyday at 5am and sometimes don’t get home until 8pm or 9pm. Yet I still manage to do a quick 30 mins to 1 hour workout daily.
When you’re working out, you HAVE TO motivate yourself by setting a goal. It could either be losing X amount of weight or building muscles. Whatever your goal may be, stick to it. Write it in a journal and track your progress daily. You could also take a picture every week to see your own progress, that’s always a great way to motivate yourself to work harder.
When working out, it’s important to be sweating your butt off. That’s how you know you’re pushing yourself. Since I have such a tight schedule, I usually workout at home by watching some YouTube videos instead of going to a gym. Here are some channels I LOVE working out to.
Boho Beautiful, she does a lot of yoga, Pilates and HIIT workouts. She shows you detailed instructions and does it with you. I LOVE doing this when I want to fit a quick workout in. I usually do 2 videos per workout.
XHit, it’s a channel showcasing various trainers with various exercises. It depends on what you’re aiming to do, they probably have it. Again, I usually do 2 videos per workout.
Lastly, the infamous Kayla Itsines! If you want, you can purchase her ebook guide online or download her app to purchase them as well. However, I found that if you do this little trick, you can do her Bikini Body Guide (BBG) for free.
- Search Kayla Itsines on YouTube
- Click on the first video. It’s of a woman doing the whole guide showcasing her transformation and it tells you what the exercises are.
Fair warning: the BBG is HARD and will make you SWEAT!!! But it’ll feel so good afterwards. Currently I’m only on week 1, day 2. Follow my health journey on my Instagram!!
