We all have reasons for getting in shape – it could be for your health, confidence, a special occasion, needing a lifestyle change, or maybe all of the above. In my case it’s all these reasons, but especially for losing some weight before my sister’s wedding in the coming months. It’s amazing the motivation you get from wanting to look good for a special event! Most people would just go on some crazy crash diet and exercise but since I also want to make it a lifestyle change it’s been taking a bit longer to where I want to be. I don’t mind since it does take time to get into a new routine of healthier choices and activities.
Besides changing my diet I needed to change the way I kept active. I tried yoga for a few months but quickly got bored of it since I need something that is a bit more rhythmic than that. I started to experiment with jogging, elliptical, dance, and jump rope and realized these are the things I enjoy doing most.
It’s fine to work with what you already have lying around at home, but as silly as it may sound I feel that when you have cute workout gear you stay motivated and wanting to keep going. Do you agree as well? I’ve collected quite a few cute and colourful workout pieces so that I want to continue to use them, and it does make exercising a lot more fun.
