[day three] favorite work-out tips.
working out is simple to me (now) i used to do too much in too little a time (or want too much out of too little time?). i used to give up easily, after a few weeks if i didn’t see an improvement i was over it (maybe because patience is the fruit of the spirit i’ve NEVER been good at).
[tip 1] give it time.
i have lifted weights before but it was never my favorite, i’d rather just run or bike or use the elliptical, but i’ve learned you can’t just do one thing, you have to mix it up & do everything.
[tip 2] vary your workout, do cardio AND strength training (it will actually help your running, or at least it did mine).
i tend to over eat on weekends & holidays
& all throughout may & i used to try to eat less/nothing & workout to counter this but that doesn’t work & is totally unhealthy.
[tip 3] eat healthy/enough all the time (splurging on weekends & holidays is totally okay in my book).
on the subject of working out….. i want to start trail running.
these are too adorable.
