I’m kind of a fitness junkie, it’s true.
I literally worked out until the day before I delivered the Peanut, stomping away on that elliptical and WISHING that kid out. I spend most of my time in athletic clothes and running shoes (yup, I’m THAT mom) and the gym has become a place where I not only work out but I socialize.
Some might call me a gym rat.
For most of my life I’ve focused on healthy living, from food to working out, to just general well-being… I mean trust me, I’m the first one to take a mental health day when I need it or to DEVOUR that hunk of brie… but trying to balance kids and work and keeping everything together at home means that I need to keep myself healthy and happy.
As my husband says… Happy Wife, Happy Life * grin *
But with so many things out there, what can help you lead that healthy lifestyle you’re looking for?? Check ‘em out!
My Top 5 Favorite Fitness MUST-Haves for
1) The new SkyFit App – This app is seriously life changing for someone like me who needs a little change up in her workout and fitness routine. While I can pound out the miles on the treadmill or the bike, this app is like a class on your phone, but without the battery draining video. Listen to the trainer set your treadmill incline and speed and then leg it out to awesome music for interval workouts, endurance runs and even distance training. It’s the best app I’ve found so far to get me out of my training rut and has classes for spin, running, yoga, weight training and outdoor running!
2) A Fitness Tracker – With wearable tech being all the rage right now, it’s hard to know which one is going to be the best for you. My favorite tracker right now to help with healthy living is the FitBit. I have the Charge HR but will soon be upgrading to a Blaze. Whichever one you choose, if you’re going to live a healthy lifestyle, having some basic knowledge is helpful, like how many steps you’re taking a day… Because you always have to start somewhere!
3) Kettleballs – It’s like the PERFECT workout tool. You can do so many things with a kettleball, and a kettleball swing is the BEST exercise to trim up that booty. Arms, tush, hammies… they can all benefit from this little ball with horns. And it looks cool when you’re popping it.
4) Cute workout clothes – Sorry, but if I’m going to be living in workout clothes, I need them to be TOTES ADORBS. And while I’m not ready to spend the kind of moola that it takes to be outfitted in LuluLemon, I do realize that if you’re going to be wearing them (all the time), you should probably get high quality gear. My absolute FAVORITE workout line right now is Fabletics. They started as an online store but have now opened 10 stores across the country and feature really cute and cutting edge workout pieces. My absolute FAV is their running skirts, which make me feel like a peppy cheerleader, but hold up for EVERY run.
Vitamins – Even though I try to eat right and focus on healthy living, I was surprised to find out that I am both calcium AND Vitamin D deficient. With that information in my back pocket, I started supplementing my lifestyle with vitamins, specifically Sundown Naturals® Gummy Vitamins. Regular vitamins made me gag and gummies seemed like a delicious way to go, especially since they were free of dairy, gluten and artificial flavors◊. What made it even easier was that I could find them at my local Walmart, where they had a HUGE selection of the Sundown Naturals® Gummies.
Do you want to start taking vitamins? It’s pretty easy to take this quiz to find out which vitamins would be best for your healthy lifestyle. And at least when they are gummies, I get to feel like a kid again, since I’m doing everything in my power to stay young… or at least act like it.
