Fit Friday: Different Types of Workouts

Quote of the day: “If you’re tired, do it tired.” Variety in all aspects in life is great, including working out. Not only does changing your workout day-to-day help alleviate boredom, it also helps make sure all your muscles are being trained and you are able to become a well-rounded athlete. A lot of people focus on either cardio or strength training, which is great, but there’s so much more out there. I know I’ve definitely had my long streaks of only doing cardio every singly day and nothing else. I guess I just didn’t know there was more variety. If you’re new to working…

Fit Friday: The Ultimate Mental Game

Quote of the day: “When your legs can’t run anymore, run with your heart.” Do you like running? I feel like either you love it or hate it. I’d say the majority hate it because it is TOUGH! I also feel like people associate it with punishment. Maybe you were late to practice and had to run laps around the tennis courts? Or your teammates were fooling around so your coach made you run suicides? Perhaps this is why people hate running.. what about you?  Do I personally like running? Hmm it’s a confusing relationship. I like it because I feel like when I do run,…

Fit Friday: Daily Workout

Quote of the Day: “Sweat is just fat crying.” LOL that quote is very funny. Thanks Drew for sharing it with me. I’ve decided to dedicate Fridays to fitness related posts. I don’t know how long that’ll keep up, but for now, you know what you’ll be getting each Friday. To start off, I’m going to share every active thing I did yesterday (Thursday, September 17, 2020). Staying active in times like these is the only thing that keeps me sane. Plus, when you’re sitting and working all day, it’s very important to get your body moving whenever you get the chance. 7:30-8:30 am: Morning…

What’s Your Hurdle Moment?

Quote of the Day: “Challenge is inevitable. Growth is optional.” I’ve spent a lot of time walking and driving around my neighborhood during this pandemic. Listening to music is great, but can sometimes get really repetitive… plus I can’t sing on my walks (well, I guess I could, but I would be that person singing out loud). I’ve found that listening to a podcast is a way better use of my time. Podcasts can be inspiring, motivating, and educational… if you choose the right ones. I recently came across a podcast called Hurdle with Emily Abbate. How did I come across this podcast? Well, I was out for a…

Quick & Effective Workout Circuit

Quote of the Day: “Aim for progress, not perfection.” When I first started working out, I had no clue what to do. I would step foot in the gym, but not really do anything except run on the treadmill or do the elliptical. My mom then advised me with some easy, quick, and effective workouts to do to gain some strength and work my whole body. She told me to pick exercises that target your legs, arms, core, and heart and create a circuit out of it. So I did that. Ever since then, I would create random circuits that were really effective. Today, I’m going…
