I truly believe that if you look good you feel good, and if you feel good you look good. One of the best ways to achieve that is with fitness. Just like the choices you make in fashion, fitness choices can be interpreted to fit your life and your body. You have to do what works best for you, your schedule and your lifestyle. My fitness journey has been just that; a journey. My relationship with working out is ever evolving but within the last couple of years, I’ve really been able to streamline my fitness focus and find what works best for me.

So!  To start off 2018 with your best healthy foot forward, here are 6 fitness habits I recommend for you to adopt in 2018! So keep scrolling to discover my current fitness habits and my watch my current weekly workout routine!

1. Find What Workout is Best For Yourself 

Okay, I know, easier said than done but I've realized that finding a workout class/type of workout that  you actually enjoy make it all so much easier! The biggest thing I've learned is that you don't HAVE to go to the gym to workout. 

I've come to realize that I'm the most motivated when I am in more own element and alone with nothing around me so I can just think. I know for me that working out is a form of stress relief for me and a way to escape. Whether it be running for miles on my local trail or blasting music in the gym, I have found that working out just myself is when I work my hardest.

2. Just get Moving 

As I said before, my fitness journey has been a long and winding road. I spent so much time in the past trying to find my 'go-to' workout, but it kept on changing and that's OK. It took me a while to realize that that's normal. Maybe one day I do an Orange Theory class, or maybe I don't even make it out of the house and just do a 15-minute workout video off of YouTube on my yoga mat! I used to be so hard on myself if I missed a day at the gym. I was so hard on myself that it would discourage me for the rest of the week which was not a good way to go about working out at all. So this year- I challenge you to be flexible!

3. Workout Topless 

Okay, not totally topless, but when I workout, I just wear my sports bra. i know it's not ideal for everyone and not everyone would feel 100% comfortable, but I find it extremely motivating! It reminds me to keep my stomach tight, which in turn engages my core, plus it's a great reminder to keep my shoulders back and my posture perfect!

4. Mark Your Workouts In Your Calendar

This all comes down to making time to work out. For me personally, I find that marking my workouts, wither at home or classes, in my calendar helps to keep me accountable. If I schedule a class, I'm 100% more likely to get it done! Not to mention if you pay for a workout class, it's best not to miss it!

5. Find a Partner 

However you prefer to work out- either with a trainer or your BFF, having a workout buddy to keep you accountable makes all the difference. I don't work out with a trainer, but I have some great friends that love to stay fit like me- so we always make sure to keep each other accountable. Because... let's be honest: you're a lot more likely to wake up for a workout if someone's waiting for you. If you're going by yourself- hitting that snooze button gets a little too easy.

My goal this year is to move as much as possible, in any way I can! Do you guys have any fitness goals this year? Let me know in the comments below and have a great weekend! Remember- there's now time like now ;)
