How to balance a Healthy Lifestyleย 

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!ย 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.

  1. Search Kayla Itsines on YouTube
  2. 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!!


As you can tell, I’m a skinny built girl – but I want to be fit and healthy. Follow my journey!ย 


Much Love,

Bring it on, 10 mile bike ride๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

   
   

I went on a 10 mile bike ride with my boyfriend a few days ago. This trail is call the Columbia Trail, it also connects a few towns together. It’s hard to tell you where it’s located, because you can start from any point in any town you’d like. 

We started in a town call Long Valley, NJ, ended up in Califon, NJ. We found a stream on the way and stopped for a few pictures. But, I really wanted to stop so I could rest. We can keep that in the DL. Once we arrived in Califon, we got a quick lunch at a place call Rambo’s Country Store. Such a cute little store, it’s been around since the 1990’s. I’ll have that blog up in a few days, you don’t want to miss out! 

How do you like to work out? 

Much Love,

Quick N’ Simple

We’re all busy individuals that work day n’ night or a full time student. BUT, no matter how busy our schedules are…we all need to find time to exercise and stay healthy. Here are some tips to help you get back in shape!

1. Do 20 Squats and Lunges while brushing your teeth. (Be a multi-tasker!)
2. Replace sugary snacks with healthy alternatives. (i.e. twix bar vs. dark chocolate covered almonds)
3. Get rid of soda in your life, especially if you don’t exercise often.
4. Eat your fruits! Replace your donut breaks with some fruits, such as, pineapple, apple, orange, grapes, etc.
5. Busy morning? Make your breakfast ahead of time. Pack your yogurt parfait ahead of time – putting granola in a baggy and fruits in another baggy, so when you get to your class/work you can just pour everything into your yogurt and there you have your delicious, healthy breakfast!

I hope you enjoyed these tips!

Much Love,
