run like no one is watching
February 15, 2017
So, I have a confession. I usually stay away from looking at fitness Instagram accounts, because I find myself counting the flaws that I think I have, but lately I have been searching around Pinterest and Instagram to decide how I am going to attain a healthier lifestyle. There are SO many good accounts out there! It is incredible. But there is one problem that I have…I go through this crazy mind game. This is what I mean:
#1. I think “I am so ready to be healthy and get fit!”
#2. I then think “Where do I even start?”
(then I start looking at Instagram for different work outs and food ideas)
#3. Then I start to workout and eat healthy and then I don’t see results within the first two to three weeks…
(obviously that’s not a ton of time! Duh Paige…it takes longer than that)
#4. Every account I come across, I see this person who seems to be simply flawless and who
has it all together. So then I start to doubt a little bit.
#5. I then start to get super overwhelmed and think there is NO WAY I can make this happen for myself.
(I would ever look that good. Even if I never ate again!)
#6. Then there I am…back on my couch at midnight eating cookies. hahaha
This has been my process for a really long time! I think that I am starting to find ways to be motivated by myself and not by others, and that is really helping me! I personally want to feel and look good, and only I can make myself feel that way. So, with all of that being said, I want to know how you all are keeping healthy. What are your favorite healthy snacks? Are you on a diet that you love? I see lots of people “counting their macros”. Are you doing that? I am currently obsessed with boxing. It’s the only thing that gets me to the gym! So with that being said, what work out classes do you love?
The statement on this sweatshirt is a perfect statement for me. “Run like no one is watching.” I think I run a little funny, so I always pretend like no one is watching, or I get self-conscious! haha YOU GUYS…H&M pulled through this season with their workout gear! Their stuff is sooooo good. The sweatshirt in this look is a suede fabric. SUEDE! (see link below) So cool. Everywhere I go with this sweatshirt on, I get compliments. And the bra too. I have never had a matching gym outfit until this last month. Now I am kind of obsessed with trying to find matching looks. If you are anything like me, have cute outfits makes you get your booty to the gym, right?!
Anyway, I hope some of you comment and give me your feedback. I would love to hear from you all.
