For most people the idea of looking your best for summer or on your wedding day means hitting the gym, for others it means being yelled at by an exercise drill sergeant, but we believe that in order to look your absolute best you first have to feel your best. That means finding something you works for YOU. Looking your best doesn’t necessarily mean working out. There are many SMALL and EASY changes you can make to your daily routine to help you feel you’re very best.
If you are someone who craves to FEEL THE BURN, but doesn’t crave the price of a gym membership there are very simple home work outs that you can do. Most of which don’t require you use any equipment. Looking up yoga moves, or watching online tutorials can help you create a CUSTOM WORKOUT. For those of you who are really busy and don’t have a lot of free time try doing a short quick workout. Most take about 5-7 minutes and cover the basics like abs, legs, arms and a little cardio. Others can be more specific and help you with any trouble areas you might want to work on.
We like this quick morning workout
Exercising isn’t the only way you can make yourself feel your best. Just making simple changes to your everyday routine can boost your energy and help you stay healthier. Packing your lunch not only helps you save money but can also help you stay healthier and avoid eating fast food. Look for easy quick healthy recipes, like yogurt chips, or substitutions that can be made to your favorite baked goods. You can still even have a drink and be healthier! Try replacing dark alcohol for lighter, instead of drinking sugary soda try and drink sparkling water with fruit. Or ask if they have any fresh squeezed juice. Try greek yogurt as a substitution for sour cream, cream, and milk products for half the calories and twice the protein!
Don’t try and cut out all your bad habits, feel free to treat yourself every now and then and no that doesn’t mean a whole carton of BEN AND JERRIES. For your everyday cravings try to substute for a healtier alternative. Having a craving may also be a way for your body to tell you it is missing out on a very important element.
Some of your everyday household kitchen ingredients can turn into a homemade FACIAL. All natural and cheaper than going to a spa!
Just remember not every workout or recipe is meant for you. Do what works for you and stay consistent in your routine. Find what motivates you, whether it be doing them with your fiancé or a friend. Looking at a picture of your bikini or wedding gown you want to fit in, or posting motivational workout quotes to your Pinterest board. Have fun with it and stay strong. YOU GOT THIS!!
