💗 Looking like a tropical bird! 😝 I love lots of colour! I'm in London now, I've been away for almost 3 weeks now & have only worked out 3 times! People assume I workout every day but it's definitely not the case. On average I train 3 times a week and far less when I'm traveling. I get really run down when I travel so my priority is always to take care of my body and get plenty of rest. If I had to choose between sleep and training I'll always choose sleep. Years ago before I lived a healthy and balanced lifestyle I used to push myself to always train and eat very "clean" but now I'm far more relaxed. It's no big deal if I don't train and I don't regret eating treats or what's considered "unhealthy" (unless it upsets my tummy haha). – This is how I choose to live and it works best for me. I don't care about being super lean or "shredded" – that isn't an indication of "health". My priority is always feeling my best mentally and physically. If that's eating chocolate or choosing to stay in bed rather than train then that's what I'm gonna do. Of course I believe there are times where you've gotta push yourself to get closer to your goals… but I just like to be realistic about fitness. My advice is to listen to your body and give it what you think it needs at the time, not what someone else might be saying you "should do". Everyone is different so choose a lifestyle that works for you and ultimately makes you happy. ☺😘 . @emilyskyefitness . 🏃🏼♀️Outfit: @reebok @reebokwomen .
This insta account is epic and truly shows how to fit in exercise no matter what your situation or location. Sweat seeker, Ellice, of FitMumsMotivation, is mom to a cute toddler. Originally a national hurdler, you never see this mom in a gym- only her living room and the great outdoors of Australia. With almost every post a video post, she shows how you barely need any equipment to get fit. She’s also got some rockstar workouts to do if your a mom always out walking the bub in the stroller. Her videos aren’t super flashy or high tech but damn are they motivating. She’s a mom actually making workouts look fun!
Here is a super effective full body toning workout for all of those who say they don't have the space to train. I literally didn't move my feet out of a 1 meter square radius and not only that didn't need to change equipment or even put it down the whole round. You could use a dumbbell, kettle bell or weight plate like me here or some tin food cans. I did 4 rounds of 10 reps per move so // each exercise above ( 6 exercises) was 10 reps per move (5 each leg for the lunges) and I did that 4 rounds completely through 💪🏾👊🏽 no space required just some space in your brain to get motivated to do it for 25min or so. You could be cooking in the kitchen and do an exercise then stir the sauce than do the next exercise and cut the veggies. You could do an entire round between every add break of your favorite show. 👊🏽💪🏾 I'd love to see you try this one and tag me #fitmumsmovetogether or #fitmumamotivation go check out my 6 weeks at home workout videos via the link on my bio and we can train together
