Hey everyone! I am super excited for today! I will be starting a series called “Be Your Best You” and I will post a new one every Monday! Things from fitness to a positive mindset, we will be covering a huge range of topics in this series! Today we are starting with health & fitness: getting into a fitness routine for 2021!
Also, sorry I didn’t post Monday! School is completely online for a bit and it’s been busy!
In 2020, I did not have the best fitness routine. I took walks occasionally and sometimes worked out, but that was it. If you saw my new year’s goals post, you’ll know a big thing I want to work on this year is getting active!
So, today I am bringing you with some tips to get into a great fitness routine by mid 2021!
Pick An Area To Focus On
First off, you should decide if there is an area you would like to focus on. For example, if you want to run faster, then try to focus on running instead of an ab workout every day! For me, I want to focus on walking/just getting fresh air, running, and some an workouts! Of course, you can do whatever you want and feel free to mix it up as much as you’d like!
In the begining, you do not have to work out daily. You can start by working out on the weekends, and slowly add it in to your weekly routine. That way, it will be much easier to get used to working out!
This one is super important! You should always hydrate before and after you work out! If you aren’t a huge fan of plain water, you could add some fruit in, ice, or get a cute waterbottle! I have a nice insulated waterbottle from target that looks like a hydroflask but is much cheaper!
It’s Fine If You Miss A Day!
Expessially when you are first getting into fitness, remember that it is 100% okay to miss a workout, or take a break!
Just Do It.
Okay, it may be just me, but actually getting up and out the door or to start working out is SO hard! So if you just ‘force’ yourself to get up and do it then you will be all set!
Listen To Music
Listening to your favorite upbeat music will help pass the time when working out! You could also make your playlist the length of your workout. (however I can’t really do that because I am always stopping songs in the middle haha)
Do It With A Friend
If there is a friend who would be willing to do this with you (either distanced or through zoom) it would help make working out more fun and motivating!
So, I hope you enjoyed the tips for getting motivated to work out and get back into fitness!
I am planning on posting a life update next! So be on the lookout for that! 😉
Good luck to everyone with your goals for 2021! If you didn’t see my goals post, go check that out!
And thank you so much for reading!
