Kinda ironic that this post is directly after the Museum of Pizza post, buuuut balance right?!
Anyways! I try and workout at least 3-4 days a week mostly because it keeps my anxiety down. When I don’t workout consistently I definitely notice it in how I feel, and obviously the way I look.
Down below I shared my “workout routine” (or how I stay active), but if you’re interested in learning about the way I eat - you can check out THIS post.
My Workout Routine
If you follow along on Instagram, you know that I go at least once a week to a kickboxing class! I’ve tried so many different types of workouts and this one is my favorite.
You burn between 500-1000 calories per class and feel like a million bucks after! It’s pricey but worth it! If you’re looking to try, Groupon always has deals!
Going on walks is something I’ve always loved to do, and recently I’ve been doing it more and more since I love the Fall weather. When it’s not raining (which sadly it’s been raining a lot), I put on a podcast and walk around my neighborhood.
It’s so calming, gets me out of my head, and the hills in my neighborhood make it a mini workout too. Also the fresh air is always nice!
I hate the gym lol. Everything about it is dreadful to me (which is why I go to kickboxing or take walks). BUT, ya gotta do what ya gotta do, so I go to the gym a couple times a week too.
I mostly go on the elliptical, or even the bike if I’m feeling extra lazy, and do about 30 minutes.
I love to use free weights, medicine balls, and other gym equipment afterwards to get a “full body workout”. This usually means - squats, lunges, shoulder presses, wall sits, push ups, etc.
I try and push myself as much as possible, and always finish a workout with abs. There are really easy to follow, quick workouts on Pinterest!
That’s about it! Staying active has helped me so much mentally which is why I continue to do it. In terms of “staying fit” and “looking lean”, that’s mostly determined by what I eat. So if you’re interested in my diet, check THIS out.
Hope you enjoyed this post and make sure to follow me on Insta not to miss out on anything! Talk to you soon! x
