Work(out) in Progress

My favorite thing about Mondays is the workout class I attend. It's really hard to love a Monday, but knowing I have Fit Camp's Blacklight Hip Hop class after work, helps me get through the grueling work day--WITHOUT coffee!

Confession: I'm a very awkward person and even more awkward when I try to "booty dance." You don't want to see me try to Whip and Nae Nae. Thus, I am proof that you don't have to be a great dancer or even in great shape to dance--Sidenote: It's way better and way more fun than Zumba! The lights are out which helps and it doesn't seem like you're actually working out. According to my FitBit I walk/dance at least 6000 steps in one class.



Also, I'm literally obsessed with my Fitbit. I like watching the numbers go up throughout the day--even if it's the hardest thing in the world to reach my goals! P.S. I hit my step goal AND my active minutes goal yesterday!



It's basically October and I've set some new fitness goals for the new month. Fall/Winter are the hardest times, for me, to stick with fitness goals. It's not "bikini season" anymore so what's the point, right? Wrong.

My goals mainly include being more consistent with my workout schedule and with what I eat. One day I'll eat nothing but salad and the next day eat three cheeseburgers, a cake, and some tacos. Seriously. I'm all about moderation, but this my friends, is not moderation. 




In order to get more motivated and stay on track, I will continue to wear my FitBit every single day (morning, noon, and night) and jam out to what I labeled "Skinnyminny" playlist (on my phone). Fingers crossed I can stick with my goals this time around. Here's what I'm listening to:

  2. I love my Fitbit and it def keeps me motivated. I also like to make plans with a friend to go workout or to a class. The accountability of knowing someone else is counting on you to be there gets my butt to the gym.

  7. Updating my playlist is definitely the best motivation. I've been on the fence about the FitBit lately... I feel like I don't need it but it would probably be a great motivator to get myself working out regularly!

  12. Worth It is SUCH a perfect motivation song! I have definitely been slacking on the workout regime but, I agree it should be year round!

  13. I love my fitbit too! It's helped a lot with working out, but like you I'm horrible with moderation! I'll do really well all day and then pig out at night, or do super well all week eating nothing but healthy and then the weekend hits and I'm eating pizza :/

  17. Doesn't matter if you feel awkward when you are doing the Whip Nae, at least you're out there burning some calories!

  31. Such a fun playlist! I'm also obsessed with my FitBit :) I logged 34 miles between Friday and Saturday last weekend!! Crazy. Fall and winter are much better workout times for me though. It's the only good time to go outside really in Florida!

  34. Sadly, it takes new cute workout clothes to get me motivated! I agree with you about how hard it is to have motivation to workout in the winter.
