I am so excited to share with you all something I love so much – health, fitness, and fashion!  For me, working out and eating healthy is a lifestyle.  That being said, I am not perfect!  I think of it as the 80 x 20 rule.  80% of the time I make healthy choices and 20% I fuel my craving.  For example, if I order a burger I ask for no bun and instead get fries.  It is all about the choices we make.

Another key part of a healthy lifestyle is consistency.  I get the question all the time, “how do you stay motivated?”  And I just saw an awesome quote and it totally stuck with me because this is my answer.  “Screw motivation, what you need is discipline.”  I am super disciplined – no matter if I am feeling it or not I go to the gym.  Trust me, I have never regretted a workout.  I am also fortunate enough that my husband enjoys the same passion as me so this is something we love to do together.  If you need help becoming discipline, find a workout buddy!  You can hold each other accountable.

As far as my workout schedule goes I work out Monday – Saturday and incorporate cardio (running, elliptical, HIIT) and targeting lifting into my daily routine.  Why?  Honestly, it makes me feel good.  Working out starts my day in such a positive way – mind body and soul (I love that).  I hope if anything, this post gives you fire to get moving and begin your journey to a healthier YOU.
