How fun are these awesome Devon Maryn workout clothes?!
I'm guessing about 75% of you have made resolutions relating to health and exercise for 2015, and if you're like me, maybe you're having a little bit of trouble getting started. I have all these intentions to hit the gym 5 days a week, chug 8+ glasses of water a day and eat lots of fruits and veggies, but somehow these goals are overshadowed by more exciting things like my social life (ie. ice cream runs at 10 pm). I'm totally with ya! That's why to kick off what I'm going to call Wellness Wednesdays, I thought I would share some motivation with you to get and keep you inspired to get healthy. Every Wednesday I'll be posting something relating to health, nutrition or fitness (just like last year's posts on Thursdays, just switched back a day!). I want to make sure I keep my health goals in mind, and I want to help you too!
Let's be real, Pinterest is my guilty pleasure so any time I have an excuse to go on it, you know I will. Pinning new workouts or cute water bottles or workout wear is so addicting, and it really gets me wanting to exercise! (Here's my health board if you aren't following along already ;)
+ Create a workout routine.
This part really gets me excited (that's probably the Type A in me, oops) because I love planning everything out. Figure out what activities you like doing and try them out in a sequence! Check out this guest blog post I did for my friend Hannah about making your own routine!
+ Turn working out into an event.
Instead of making plans to get Starbucks with a friend, make a date to go workout together! Whether it's hitting the gym, trying a new yoga class or simply going for a walk, you'll start making exercising a priority and part of your social life rather than simply something on your to do list. Read this article for more fun ideas!
When in doubt, think about how much better you feel when you're exercising and eating nutritiously on a regular basis. It really affects your mood and outlook on life!
