Move That Butt

Today I had zero time to go to the gym. I worked, ran errands, did tons of homework and made my 30 minute commute back home. Although it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of this crazy life we all live, we have a duty to ourselves to take care of our bodies. You may say you had zero time to go to the gym but chances are you have time at some point in the day to move that butt. If you can’t make it to the gym, hit up your local park, neighborhood, or even stay right at your house and workout. PAUSE. I am not perfect either and I am totally guilty of skipping workouts and sometimes just plain lazy. My point I am trying to get across is that in order to lose weight and be healthy, you have to get your mind in the right place. Last Friday I was off work so instead of netflix and chilling all day, I got a ton of steps in. I turned some music on and started cleaning. Amongst the dancing and singing and cleaning, I lost track of time and was on my feet moving for 3 hours. Now I am not by any means telling you that you have to clean house for 3 hours to lose weight. If that were the case I would’ve given up a long time ago, haha! However, I can say that I’ve gotten my mind, body, and soul to this place that strives to be a better version of myself than the day before. I have gotten to a place where I want to be active and get lots of steps in because I know that even cleaning the house for 3 hours still counts as a workout. If you are having a bad day or stressed out over something, get outside, walk 1 mile, and see how you feel after that. A coworker and I walk 1 mile at work every day at 10 and we do it in 15 minutes. If you can’t do that at your work, maybe you have a staircase? Tell yourself you are going to walk up and down the stairs 4 times because something is better than nothing. I can promise you that I do not workout in a gym doing hard core exercises every single day. Eating clean has helped me achieve success. I get to the gym 3 times a week for a hardcore workout and on the other 4 days of the week I try to accomplish a home workout, a mile walk/run around the neighborhood, or do something that allows me to get a lot of steps in. As long as you are getting steps in, you are pushing your body to a healthier place. Everything counts!

Happy Humpday, we are so close to the weekend!
