Working out and the biggest 2015 fitness trend

HELLO!!  I’m ready to start a great December week!  I mentioned in the last post about leaning out in December.  I’m still on board, but I forget each year the outta control partyness that goes on all month!  I’m not going to be as perfect as I wanted to be this month, but I’ll be close.  I’m lookin’ ahead to Jan. for my serious push!  Here are a few tips to stay on track!

Drink water!!!!  Especially a big glass before a foodie event!  This will calm your cravings and appetite.  And if you do splurge, drink water again!!  You’d think I’d drink a lot of water, but I have to remind myself to drink sometimes because I get so busy that I forget!

  • Plan your week out!  Consciously think about your schedule and what parties you have and then eat super healthy all around them so you can relax at the party.
  • Plan your workouts!!!  I told my friends during our run today that I honestly LOVE sitting down and scheduling my workouts for the week.  Weird I get excited about that (:
  • Don’t beat yourself up if you have a mess up day.  Get back at it the next day!

O.K.  Fitness tread for 2015…drumroll… It’s one of my favorites for it’s simplicity and old schoolness.  BODY WEIGHT EXERCISES.  Think squats, lunges, pushups, planks, maybe burpees (:  This is how I roll!  Kinda funny that it’s nothing new.  2nd place is still HIIT workouts.  Another favorite of mine.  Personal training is number 3!  Love that.  Spinning and Zumba are going out the window.  So, don’t think you need too much to get in shape!  Here’s a quick and simple one you can try anywhere:

4 ROUNDS (25-20-15-10 reps)

* Do 25 of everything on round one, 20 on round two, etc…

Prisoner Squats

Hand Release Push Ups

Sit Ups

Burpees

Side Lunges

Mountain Climbers

Side Planks 

Switch Lunges

And!  I just made that up!  I know that’s not that exciting (:  I’ll have to try it out with my workout group this week.

I’ll end with a few of my favorite workout clothes these days.  Think Christmas gift ideas of course.  Lulu shorts are my fav. after trying MANY.  In fact, everything in these photos are LULULEMON.  You can’t go wrong.  Comfy and great for any workout!

My shoes are Nike Vomeros!  My favorites for running too.  Well…I have a sick kid that’s acting like Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  He’s 16 and he wants to snuggle (:  Delirious?  Have a great week and Work Hard Always!!
