It's that time of the year again when everyone and their mothers are scrambling to start a workout routine before swimsuit season hits. At least, I know I am! Especially since J and I booked our Mexican honeymoon, I've been desperate for motivation to workout.
My usual workout routine -- mainly just running -- isn't cutting it for me this year. I actually despise running and only do it because it's a quick but effective cardio workout. And when I say quick, I mean quick. 30 minutes max -- this ain't a marathon people. But I was getting bored. I rarely went running because, well, I had more interesting things to do!
So, I hopped aboard the Tone It Up bandwagon! And I'm so happy that I did. I'm sure most of you have heard of Tone It Up, and if you haven't, go check it out! The TIU girls are amazing, adorable, and make any workout fun! The free workout videos that they post on their blog are the perfect addition to any cardio routine. If you become a Lifetime Member, you also get access to a nutrition plan, which I hear is awesome. I honestly was skeptical about the Tone It Up workouts at first, but I honestly am in love.
If you're really lacking motivation, nothing helps more than a new workout wardrobe. I know, workout clothes usually cost an arm and a leg (ahem Lululemon) but if you look in stores like Target, TJ Maxx, or Marshalls, you can find cute items for a great price. I prefer brightly colored workout gear. There's something about neon shoes that make me feel more legit.
I may or may not be hunting down that lavendar watch. I like wearing a watch when I run so I know just how long I've been torturing myself and when I can stop. Sadly, the adorable one I used to own was lost in the move last August and I haven't purchased a new one since. Also, rose water facial toner is the bomb for a little post-workout refresher.
What are your workout must-haves? Have you tried a Tone It Up workout?
