Fitness Inspiration, Part Deux

Need some fitness inspiration? Me too, sister. It’s that time of the year (or month or day or hour, lately) that I realize I’m too big for my britches. All the Ramen, Hanger Steak Ssam (with Kimchi), pizza, cheese plates, sandwiches, bruschetta, bbq, bbq, tacos, tacos, beer, beer and beer have gone to my boom boom and lately I’ve been on the verge of screaming every time I walk into my closet. (And no, not because there is a raccoon that jumps out from behind the hangers, though I’d definitely scream at that too.)

In an effort to gain back my sanity (and ability to fit into my favorite jorts), I’m jumping back into fitness and committing to making healthier decisions. No more IPA and pizza. (Okay less IPA and pizza.) To get into the spirit, I broke up with my normal gym wear of old ratty tees and bought some new gym attire I don’t feel so dumpy in. Something that also inspires me to get active is breezing through @Nikewomen’s Instagram feed. It’s full of powerful photos that make me feel all the feels. Check out some of my favorites below – complete with go get ‘em quotes. Want more? Read this post I wrote about fitness inspiration last year.

How do you get motivated to break a sweat? Holler in the comments, y’all. xo

In it together.

Fitness Inspiration

I have finally gotten back into working out! I took about a year off—okay maybe a bit more than a year… Getting back into fitness is the hardest thing ever! It’s so overwhelming. You’re mad (and maybe a bit embarrassed) for letting yourself go. You’re super annoyed because you can’t fit into your clothes. You’re disappointed because you keep planning these elaborate workout plans and schedules, but ya never execute or stick with them. You’re just over it all. Give yourself a break and just do it. Don’t over think or over plan it. Don’t make it an option, make it an item on your to-do list every single day. It will get easier and easier every day because your body will become stronger and stronger every day. Isn’t that empowering?! You have control over your health, strength and happiness, so be a friend to yourself and do it! Put your feet on the ground and leave the house. Preferably in clothes. Since I’ve gotten my butt back into Bar Method, I love checking out everyone’s gear in class. As I whittle my middle, it’s fun to think about the new jock wear I’ll soon be stocking my closet with. Here are a few of my favorite looks from Nike, and keep scrollin’ for some motivational quotes that help me get my butt outside. Go get ’em!
