Tips for Working Out at Home

Happy Holiday Season everyone!

I can’t believe Christmas is so soon. I’ve thought a lot about my shopping list but naturally, I’ve barely scratched the surface. Oh well, it always gets done doesn’t it?? (Thank you, Amazon).

Today I wanted to chat a little bit about working out at home. Kids, spouse time and jobs can make it tough to get to a gym/studio on a regular basis. Plus the darker/colder weather does not help with my motivation to leave the house once hubby is home!

Curling up with a glass of wine and watching “This Is Us” is way more appealing. Right?

With all that said, I need to sneak in some workouts somehow during the week.

Below are a few of my tips to kickstart your motivation (reword) to workout at home:

Lay out your Equipment

If I am planning on a workout during naptime, I will lay out my yoga mat in the middle of the kitchen or living room. If I physically have to step over it all morning, then I have a physical reminder to get my butt moving when the kiddos are asleep!

Find Something You Like

I know this goes without saying, but if you don’t find a type of exercise that you enjoy- you are not going to do it. Nowadays there are SO many more options out there than traditional exercise- dance workouts, HIIT workouts, TRX workouts, barre workouts – just to name a few. Lately I’ve been going through some Blogilates , Love Sweat & Fitness and some Tone it Up workouts. They all have youtube videos = awesome.

Dress the Part

Cute workout clothes always help, and if I get dressed in them first thing then I have no excuse. I love that athleisure is “a thing” these days, since that’s basically what I live in.

Some of my favorite looks are:

spacedyeleggings

Beyond Yoga Space Dye Leggings are AMAZING. Like the most comfortable pair of yoga pants ever. I love them.

{And no, I don’t look like this when I’m working out at home. I wish}

Zella has the cutest shirts that are comfy and perfect to layer over a tank top or wear on their own.

    I hear ya girl! This time of the year, working out can be tough… I had to force myself to workout today, it was a struggle! Haha. But I definitely think that switching up my workouts a lot helps to keep me engaged most of the time.

    And I love This Is Us too!!
