Avoid getting caught up holiday stress and unhealthy decisions. Use a planner to stay disciplined, motivated, and on track. Schedule out your to-do list, workouts, errands, and goals. At the end of each day, track and review your daily accomplishments.
I also use my planner to evaluate my monthly progress, revisit setbacks, how I overcame them, and ways I can improve myself for the next month.
Here are a few of my successful tracking tips to help you succeed!
1️⃣ Be faithful and honest in your tracking
2️⃣ Schedule your workouts
3️⃣ Log yourself into good habits
December is around the corner! Be sure to schedule out the last few weeks of November!
Happy Sunday! 🤓

Recently, I’ve been all about incorporating different step up exercise variations during my leg workouts. STEP UPS target your thighs (quads) and booty (glutes) and only require a small sturdy step. Today, I put more of an emphasis on working my booty and added a kickback to my step ups.

Who wants to –
• Feel good naked.

If you said yes to any of these, you must schedule your life around constant activity, create active space, and always have a health and fitness goal. This week schedule your workouts, host walk meetings with your coworkers/clients, and organize hikes after work. On the weekends, keep it going, stay active! Wake up and do yoga, go for a hike, go to the park, or take a class! When you are constantly active, you take the reins on your health.
Keep yourself active! I promise it will make you smile.
Double tap if you are all about keeping a schedule!
Do you experience midday grogginess or fatigue?
You could be dehydrated! Don’t forget about your H2O intake this winter. Even if you are less active during the colder months, you still need to hydrate! Our body needs enough H2O to properly function and efficiently use energy.
To calculate approximately how many oz of H2O you should be drinking, divide your body weight by 2. .
Ex: 130lb / 2 = 65oz
I like to use water bottles with the measurements labeled. If you need help finding a water bottle, PM me a 💧
Stay hydrated & happy Friday!
