I always wanted to be one of those people that was seemingly addicted to working out, or experienced a “runners high” after completing a workout. It’s taken over a year of lifestyle adjustments, but I think I am finally on the brink of that. Establishing a more active routine into my schedule hasn’t just helped my waistline- it’s boosted the way my skin feels, how my attitude is, and has given me an inner confidence that I couldn’t seem to find. Now that I am on a routine that is working for me, I wanted to share some of my favorite workout accessories that I can’t live without!
Functional Workout Wear
A cute outfit to workout in is a must, no matter if I am just working out in my basement. It also has to be functional for what I am doing. I do a variety of workouts– HIIT, weight lifting, and cardio, so I need workout gear that can keep up with me. I love a comfy short and airy tanks. I don’t own anything too fancy, but you don’t have to spend a lot for it to be functional.
After being a long time Fitbit user, I made the jump to an Apple Watch about two weeks ago. So far, I really love it. I like knowing my heart rate during a workout so I can keep it consistent, the amount of calories I burn, and my activity throughout the day. My resting heart rate a year and a half ago was out of control, and when my sister noticed it, that’s when I decided I needed to make a change. Activity trackers can seem complicated, but once I got the hang of it, I was hooked! They are great for staying motivated and being in tune with how your body is working.
My home gym in our basement is not elaborate by any means. I have two rolls of workout flooring, a small weight bench, three sets of dumbbells, two resistance bands, and a TV. So far, that’s all I have needed. With the programs I do through Beachbody, it’s so easy and convenient to work out at home anytime I want. Being able to carve out just a small space in our basement has given me exactly what I need without having to go to a gym.
A HUGE step for me in my active lifestyle was cutting out pop/drinking my calories. I started drinking more water, and I couldn’t believe the results. My skin was clearer, my appetite wasn’t out of control, and I wasn’t as tired all of the time. I slowly made my way up to drinking a gallon of water a day. I’ll admit, water can be boring. That’s where vitaminwater ZERO comes in! The flavors add some pep to my life, and it provides hard-working hydration, vitamins and electrolytes for the 24/7 hustle. By staying hydrated, my skin is glowing, I am making better progress towards my goals by not drinking my calories, and I am sleeping better. I feel the best I have felt in years!
