Quilted Nike Pullover + Fitness Goals

 

Happy Monday Friends! Back to reality and back to blogging! Whoop Whoop!

It’s also that time of year where the gyms are super crowded and everyone’s making their fitness goals for the year. When it comes to fitness, I get DM’s from y’all regarding the best running tips, fitness classes or the best exercises to do in the gym. My goal for 2018 is to share all the fitness tips and tricks I have learned over the years and to get in better shape. I shared recently that I am training for a half marathon in February in honor of a little boy who was diagnosed with leukemia. I have completed two other marathons before so I didn’t hesitate to sign up for another one. Its such an honor to run and raise money for such an amazing organization.

I recently snagged something that I am totally obsessed with and had to share with the world. This quilted Nike pullover has totally given me life and I haven’t taken it off since I got it in the mail.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes to winter running essentials for myself, I love this Nike pullover. I wont lie, I was a little worried it was going to be too heavy to run in but its actually super lightweight. I actually ran in it over the weekend and love how breathable, yet warm it is at the same time. I’m also obsessed with these burgundy leggings, both for cold weather running, or really any workout! You can also wear them for cycling (or spin classes) but are comfortable enough for everyday loungewear. They are super warm, really flattering, and definitely one of my winter running essentials!!

 

Now to the Fitness Goals!!!

  1. Plan:  The best way to stay on track is to PLAN! Staying healthy is already hard enough, make it easier on yourself by planning your meals and your workouts.
  2. Eat Clean:  As hard as it might be, try to stay away from processed foods. Being a taco/cheeto lover, I have a hard time staying focused on the healthier foods that I dont always crave. I try to eat clean during the week and leave the indulging for the weekends. You can meal prep pretty much everything — breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Try to choose lean meats, complex carbs, and fibrous veggies. You can’t out-train a bad diet.
  3. Consistency: You aren’t going to see results right away. This takes time, patience, and consistency.  If you aren’t feeling up to going to the gym one day, try being active in other ways…. going for a scenic run, walking the dogs, etc.
  4. Stay off the Scale: Cut ties with the scale. Weighing yourself every so often can be healthy and a way to track your goals, but at the end of the day, what matters is how you feel.  Also, remember that muscle weighs more than fat. Progress pics are a much better indicator!!!!
  5. Hours of Sleep: Your muscle needs rest to recover, and your body needs energy to perform.
  6. Be Realistic: You aren’t going to get rock hard abs in a few weeks.  Small daily changes compound over time to create results.  Unrealistic goals is just setting yourself up for failure.  Try journaling a few small goals for every week! For example, meal prep this week + gym 3 times.
