20 Minute HIIT Workout at Home

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw I shared one of my favorite at home workouts through Instagram Stories. I have since then completed another workout option as well! I don’t know about you, but I ate quite a few holiday treats and I have a trip to Cabo next month, so this girl has got to get back at it. Haven’t seen it? Follow me on Instagram, and check out my “highlight” reel on my Instagram profile! The written list for exercises is at the end of the workout.

So many of you personally messaged me asking for more—I had no idea it would be such a hit! I’m so glad you all have enjoyed them! I also received quite a few questions on where I like to shop for workout gear. I typically shop at Dick’s, Nordstrom, and Target. I have listed a few of my favorites below–everything is under $50! When I was in high school, I used to run track (sprints and mid-distance). Needless to say, I don’t like gear that will “bother” me during a workout. If you are a no fuss kind of girl, but still want to look cute in your gear—I got you covered! PS – I am 5’2, so these are all petite-friendly options!

Nike Sports Bra

Nike Workout Pants

Adidas Tank

Joy Lab Side Tie Tank

Cami Sports Bra (under $10!)

Make sure to message me on Instagram to let me know what you think of the videos or if you have suggestions for other types of workouts!

Until next time!

My Fitness Routine

My Fitness Routine

As it gets colder and darker, it seems harder to go to the gym. Am I only the one that feels that way? Regardless, it’s important to stay focused! Along with beauty and fashion, an active lifestyle is important to me. I’ve always been a runner, but after high school and college, I knew I was going to have to make adjustments for the calories I wasn’t going to burn by not being in a sport and working full time! Below is my routine (I am not a doctor, so make sure to consult before trying something new!)

A few things to keep in mind:

  1. Weight is just a number, and what 130 lbs. looks on one body type may look completely different than another. Focus on inches and how your clothes fit–muscle weighs more than fat.
  2. Diet is key! Everyone has a different body and various needs. Consult with a dietician!
  3. Don’t expect immediate results. Allow 2-3 months for noticeable change.
  4. Allow your body to rest between workouts. Your muscle tissue breaks down and needs time to recover for you to be stronger!
  5. Don’t be afraid of weights. If you simply do cardio, you’re missing out on burning more calories and fat. Plus when you do lose weight, your body will be more toned! Don’t worry about bulking, just think low weight, high rep!
