Work It Out

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetThis is the blog post for all you people saying the phrase “new year, new me.” I think it’s great that some of you would like to change your current lifestyle. I understand how hard it can be so that’s why I wanted to set you up for success with this mini workout to boost your metabolism. The best thing you can do for your body is move it so that’s exactly what we are going to do. For those of you who don’t know I have been an athlete all my life. Playing multiple sports till I settled into soccer for my college career. This workout is what I do now when I’m in a rush in the morning and just need something easy that I can do at home. I do recommend a few light stretches before starting this work out to get your blood flowing! However this workout has simple movements that are meant to warm your body up.

Ive linked my go to song when I work out to get you motivated and in the zone for the workout. If you don’t like profanities and vulgar lyrics don’t press play 🙂

Here it is:

  •  10 pushups
  •  20 squats
  •  30 lunges (15 each leg)
  •  40 jumping jacks
  •  50 second jog in place

1 minute rest in between sets

repeat 3-4 times

This workout can be altered to fit your current fitness level. The number of reps is just a guideline, so feel free to add or take away reps to your comfort level.

This workout is perfect for when you just wake up, it gets your metabolism going and your heart pumping allowing you to be energetic for the rest of your day!

I also did want to mention that I have recently started practicing yoga again and it has been so wonderful. I have remembered to breathe again and wow does that feel good! For anyone who is stressed or has any muscle aches I highly recommend going to a yoga class or doing simple movements on your own.

I have also been getting a lot of questions about what makeup I have been wearing that is good for an active lifestyle. I have recently tried the foundation and lipstick from sugar sweat cosmetics and it is amazing! it stays on all day long and is sweat resistant. So when I go to a yoga class right from work I know for sure that I won’t be leaving that class with my makeup dripping off my face. In these photos I am wearing their perfectly flawless foundation in the color nude and their creamy matte lipstick in the color pink plush. Definitely check there website out at http://www.sugarsweat.com 🙂
