Feel the burn!

Welcome to the end of the summer. If you are anything like me you had major #GOALS to get the summer bod of your dreams. And if you are really like me, that didn’t exactly happen.

So you are going into the new school year or you are going back to work and you are thinking "this will be the year." I know I am. But going to the gym and making healthy choices is a lot easier said than done. I know once I step back on campus, I will be confronted with a wall of responsibilities that don’t include the gym.

Life is busy, we all know that. But what if we could change our mindset about working out and eating healthy to make going to the gym a lot easier. Well, we can. Instead of just saying over and over again for the millionth time, “I want to eat healthier,” define what that means to you.

To me, eating healthy is fueling my body with what it needs to get through the day and STILL have energy by the end of the day. Recently I’ve started checking out the nutrition labels on foods I buy and ACTUALLY being aware of what I am putting into my body. I know, crazy right?!

The gym is more of a mental obstacle than anything else. I don’t know how many times I’ve made dumb excuses for myself to allow myself not to make it to the gym and work out that day.

But going to the gym should NEVER be about anyone other than YOURSELF. Your body is YOUR body, which means your decision to workout should be because YOU want to make healthier choices and YOU want to treat your body right.
