One of my top questions I get over on Instagram Stories is what my fitness routine is. Frankly, I go through phases. One year I’m hooked on spin, the next yoga and the next I don’t want anything to do with group classes. This year is the year of continuously mixing it up for me.
I have been asked for an exact work out regimen and I am working on that post I promise! I wanted to share with you my top fitness tips for 2018…
Food Tracker App – I live on My Plate Calorie Counter by Livestrong App for all of my meals. Even those days I have one too many glasses of wine or perhaps have a less healthy meal I put it in. It keeps me accountable, has helped with my new years resolutions and has really taught me what I have been putting in my body. Also, allow a cheat day where you put nothing in. It’s ok. I promise. Also, DO NOT weigh yourself every day. Your body will constantly fluctuate. I try to weigh myself once a week and put it in the app so I can see my progress. I have (when I was really consistent) lost 10lbs in a month when I stuck to this app.
Apple Watch– My love for my Apple Watch is deep. It connects me to friends so we can be competitive with our workouts/steps AND it connects to My Plate! So I don’t have to enter in my workouts or steps when its on! I looooveee this feature.
Routine – Make a routine. This is very important. Just walking into the gym with no real set plan will make it harder for you to even get there never mind be productive. Again, I will be sharing mine soon,
Sports Bra – This is a VERY important part. You don’t want something you are constantly tugging at or adjusting. My obsession with Le Mystere has been for years now (see all my Le Mystere bra reviews here). As a gal with a very small back and a very, very large chest (naturally) finding a bra period is next to impossible. So basically anytime Le Mystere comes out with a new bra I will own it instantly. I am SO excited about the new Active Balance Convertible Sport Bra! It is gorgeous, has the clasp in the back to make it t-strap (the only way I go with sports bras) and it goes all the way up to a G cup! Y’all Im in love.
Stretch – I know you are thinking to yourself why is this even on here? I think it is one of the top things people forget to do when working out out on your own and it is SO important. Not only does it help with flexibility but it also important for injury prevention.
