My Weekly Workout Routine









Okay so when I say I'm back, I really am back.. I'm working to get a photographer in the Abilene area and I'm starting to plan posts. I'm blooming where I'm planted like I shared on Wednesday via Insta Stories. With that being said, I'm praying the creativity starts to flow through me like it used to when I was writing all the time. If there is something you want to see on the blog, will you let me know? It's so encouraging to hear from all of you and what you enjoy reading most. 

 On another note, actively exercising and creating healthy habits started in January for me after the wedding. I had more time to consistently create a schedule and it's truly been the best thing for me and my body. I don't know about you but I THRIVE off of routine. My personal preference is exercising outside. The gym is okay but in my opinion, I love being able to plug my headphones in and just embrace outside and looking around. Maybe that's just my personality? Regardless, it's become extremely therapeutic for me. I decided to create some diversity and I run MWF and I walk T/TH. I'm not super strict on how far I run or walk, to be honest, running can be challenging and some days I don't get very far but my goal is to really just get outside and push myself and in the end, my body feels good. That should be the whole purpose of working out right? To get to the point where you feel good and you're happy? Being healthy is crucial for sure but don't kill yourself to get your workout in distance wise or time wise, find the balance and hold yourself to that. Another part of my routine that I don't budge on is when I exercise. The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is my quiet time, then I make our bed and put my workout clothes on. Having this be the second thing I do every day really keeps me in the habit of doing it and following it. 

So here's my challenge for you, if you don't have a workout routine, create one. It's never to late to be the best YOU!

Pick how you're going to exercise.
Pilates
Yoga
Running
Water Aerobics
Gym Class
Elliptical
Treadmill
Switch it up and pick different things to do certain days. Consistency is good to a degree but too much of it is boring and you won't stick to it. Once you have that, move to the next phase of creating your routine.

Pick the time you're going to exercise.
Whether that be super early in the morning, a different time every day (but the same every week), every night, etc. Whatever you decide on, stick to that (within reason). With consistently doing it this way, your body is going to start to remember the way it feels. Eventually, you won't be able to go through your day without it incorporated. 

These are super simple steps but we all need accountability. Be your best self-girl and go out there. You'll be so glad you did! 

Have an amazing Friday and a wonderful weekend!

  1. SO glad you are blogging again! I love your posts! I am an outdoor boot camp lover and work out in the morning 3-4 days a week at a local park with a group led by a trainer. I LOVE being outside as well! xo
