Finding motivation to loose this extra
10 ok 15 lbs from my youngest has be a challenge..but I can tell you every.single.possible. excuse you could ever image! Well for some reason I have finally found it! Call it being-at-the-pool-everyday-with-super-inshape-mom itis or just sick and tired of spending 20 minutes in my closets to find something to fit... I started a personal challenge.. #30workoutsin30days, and am tracking it thorough instagram, taking pictures of my workouts daily helps me keep my focus. I am also participating in the #45milesinJuly challenge from The Haus of Girls.. It feels great to see myself accomplishing this! I feel better and make better decisions all day long when I start with a workout!!
Tips I have found helpful:
1. proper equipment, shoes, apps on phones(not necessary-but helpful) I like being able to keep track of how long, fast and appropriate calories burned..I use the nike run app, my husband swears by the runkeeper+ app
2. do a little research and find the food the will fuel your body, just like a car we will not operate as well without proper fuel..and hydration
3. MUSIC I have found that music makes my workouts.. and everyone is motivated differently! for example I like Taio Cruz-Falling in love gets me sprinting, Nicki Minaj -Starships and Kelly Clarkson Already gone gets me started..and the MR works out best to rap and techno?!! Find your own beat and start running!!
