Hi friends! Hope your week is going well! So I realized the other day that I have not done a fitness post since last spring. Yikes! Total fail on my part. Today we’re going to fix that!

I hopped on Instastories yesterday for a couple of minutes to share that I had recently re-downloaded the Couch Potato to 5K app to help get me back on track with my running. While I’ve tried to do my best at keeping up with my gym workouts since November, I definitely have much room for improvement. Now, the old me would have thrown in the towel if I couldn’t keep at it all perfectly, but I’ve finally embraced the “do the best you can” mentality…and it’s been so freeing not beating myself up over missing a workout or not being able to do as many push ups as I could six months ago. Life is peaks and valleys. Sometimes you’re at the top of your game and sometimes you’re not.

The important thing though if you’re struggling to get back into or start your fitness journey is to JUST START.

Where ever you are, guys.

Right now, I’m doing one minute runs via that app I mentioned before. One minute, you guys. That’s all my body will muster right now. But you know what? It won’t be long and I’ll be back to running 30 minutes straight again without feeling like I’m going to die. Ha!


Pink Activewear Leggings


I encourage you to get out there and just wipe the fitness slate clean if you’re in a funky place with it right now. Figure out what might help motivate you to get back into physical activity. Is it new workout gear? The promise of a glass of wine at the end of the day? Switching from barre to yoga? We all have those things that set us on fire and help to get us excited about doing something. Find your “thing” and go for it, friends!

Ok, that concludes today’s little pep talk. Ha! Don’t forget to check out the daily linkup down below before you leave. Thanks for reading today!
