Tips to Get Moving.

I have been focused on shifting into a consistent routine that includes daily exercise. It centers me, calms me, and is so crucial to self care! I put together five time to help get you moving, especially in this season of cooler temps, when it is so tempting to lounge in our coziest clothes.

1. 30 mins a day, start there. Set a timer, and just move. A walk in the crisp, cool air. Yoga. Dancing. Whatever gets your body moving – just start.

2. Drink water. It’s so simple! Drinking water can energize you, keep you moving, and is absolutely necessary for our overall health. Challenge yourself to drink half your body weight in ounces every day! Example: if someone weighs 150 pounds, aim to drink 75 ounces of water each day.

3. Cut out soft drinks and juice. That sugar intake adds up quickly. Replace the sweet stuff with sparkling or still water, a slice of lemon and a few frozen berries, and you have something fun AND nourishing!

4. Get out your calendar and make time for it. We are all busy, being pulled in a thousand directions. Carving out time to move your body and take care of yourself is so important. Not only for your own health and wellbeing, but for those that love you most, too! Plus my brain feels SO MUCH better when I have been moving!

5. Set out shoes and workout clothes every night. When you wake up and see them waiting there for you, you’ll have the nudge you need to choose to move. You’ll be so glad you did!

I reached out to my dear friend, Kelsey ( personal trainer ) and had her answer a few of these questions just for YOU!

1. 3 things people can do at home to make a big impact:

  1. Consistency is a game changer. Carve out 30 minutes a few days a week to start doing something you like. This will soon become a habit and before you know it you’ll be excelling and even trying new things.
  2. Stay active throughout the day. You don’t always have to be on a workout program in order to level up your game. We live in a sedentary environment; so taking an extra hike up the stairs, doing some walking lunges from room to room or even doing jumping jacks with your kiddos will go a long way.
  3. Challenge yourself every week to set new goals. Walk further, lift heavier, move faster. Whatever you choose to do, give it a little more effort each week. This will help you track your progress, improve quickly, and stay motivated.

2. Find a program to do at home! 

  1. I have offered a 21 day challenge: many can help you build the necessary foundation for regular exercise and healthy eating habits. There are also so many at home programs and apps available now that you can do early in the morning or during a kiddo’s nap time!

3. The best first step:

When you don’t know what to do, do what you know. Start there. This could mean walking, lifting, yoga etc. Do what you know and be consistent. Start small…remember small steps each day lead to consistency and big change!

Remember small changes everyday lead to BIG changes.
