Lately, I’ve been a little more intentional about getting back into a fitness and a wellness flow! I fell off for a while because of the life changes we’ve had for the past couple of months. I tried going back to a more structured plan & challenges like I’ve done in the past, I don’t know why I thought that was a good idea lol…I’ve concluded that maybe these are just not for me! 😬
I’m a rhythm kind of person! I enjoy rhythms more than structured/set schedules. I think that rhythms help you create long term habits that you can stick to and also become a lifestyle more than something to “follow”. I want to enjoy my routine not feel like I’m constantly trying to keep up haha!
THINGS THAT HELP MY RYTHM
– Keeping my options open
I don’t have to do the same thing everyday! Sometimes I want to walk/hike other times I’ll hit the gym or hop on the Peloton and sometimes a nice Beachbody workout will do! Not restricting myself to one thing or one way helps me stay motivated to keep my body moving and keeps things interesting!
– Fueling and hydrating my body
Fueling your body is so important! When I’m not eating right or feeding myself the proper amount of food I feel it. Sometimes I get busy and I don’t make time to eat, my energy tanks so hard and I instantly know what the issue is, same with water! Or, when I rely on coffee for energy, it has the opposite effect! I love my morning cup of Joe but don’t drink more than one cup a day. Also, I’ve been juicing a lot and having a lot of fun creating juicing recipes and find that it drinking a tall glass of freshly squeezed juice does a really good job at giving me energy!
– Dress up the part
Wake up, dress up! Specially in the current times! And you know your girl loves a good outfit! I want to wear clothes that make me feel good and look good. During the week, I wear activewear more times than I wear regular clothes simply because it’s easy and works well with my lifestyle. In this post I’m wearing Free People Movement. I love their stuff! Free People Movement carries so many stylish silhouettes that are comfortable and look amazing! Lots of cute outfits to build with different layers and textures. Also, their compression items provide really good support for your power workouts!
– Friends to flow with
Having accountability partners helps me a lot and make things fun! No pressure just little check-ins here and there! While I like working out solo in the gym, I really enjoy walking or hiking with friends! ☺️
