I am not ready for the beach

Hello beauties!

Winter is finally over and I just spent the last few months hibernating, stuffing my face with food and binge watching 17 different shows on Netflix. Well, now it’s April and you all must be thinking the same thing I am right now… I AM NOT READY FOR THE BEACH!!!

I’ve been experimenting with low carb meals, more fruits and veggies, and more water the last few weeks, but that won’t be enough. My biggest issue is heading to the gym. I’m pretty sure I paid Planet Fitness $20/month for two years so I could stay at home to NOT workout.

Finding the motivation to go to the gym can be really difficult and picking up some dollar-menu items at McDonald’s is so much easier than cooking a whole meal. If you’re like me and don’t enjoy feeling like Jabba the Hut after some fast food, try practicing these quick workouts to help you get SOME exercise in your day:

  • 2 sets of 25 sumo squats
  • 2 sets of 50 ab bikes
  • 2 sets of 20 side lunges (2 sets per leg)
  • 2 sets of 20 fire hydrants (2 sets per leg)

Just a quick disclaimer: I definitely do not do this myself, BUT I’m going to challenge myself to these daily. I’m challenging you to do some at home workouts too. If you’re not a fan of these workouts, which ones do you prefer? Drop some workouts, stretches and/or healthy lifestyle choices in the comments!

Keep up with me on: InstagramTwitter, and Facebook

  1. Girl, SAME. I’ve just started using my using my planet fitness membership (finally) but I’d love to get some ideas for things to do from home since I can’t make it to the gym everyday. Gonna give these a try!

    • I have to start somewhere and I’m just too tired when I get home from work to go to the gym! If cardio didn’t exist, I’d be at the gym all the time! Let me know if you like the workouts and if something else works for you, love!

  2. I love the workout set! I’ve been doing low carb for almost two months now and the lifestyle change is amazing. squats are my bff because booty gains. I’ve also started lifting weights and I have a treadmill which helps. women supporting other women with healthy lifestyles is one of the best forms of support and motivation, so here’s to you and your healthy life 💕

    • Thank you Jaimee! Seeing your progress has been so awesome and inspiring (especially the low carb diet, cause it’s so difficult). I need to push myself to do cardio, but weights are my favorite. Keep pushing yourself, you’re doing amazing!
