Everyone hits a plateau with it comes to working out. Let us motivate you to keep going.

Hi Loves, finally a more positive post.  After a couple weeks of focusing on self-care and getting to the root of  my issues, I think I’m ready to get up and do some sort of exercise.  I’m not going to jinx it but this week I want to just work out 3 times.  It could be yoga, walking, dancing.. who knows.  But 3 is my goal.  I’ll let you know next week how that goes!

GL Gets Fit #27

Fitness motivation! Check out our workouts that WORK! Loves!  In the past week I have finally completed my 30 days of Yoga challenge with Adriene!  My cold from a couple weeks ago is still trying to hang on – but its not as bad so I was able to finish and did two days at a time to get it completed.

GL Gets Fit #22 {6 months later & Hovering Cats?!}

Your only competition should be the person you were yesterday. #fitness #motivation from Tone-and-Tighten.comHi Loves!  You know I’ve been on a yoga kick for December.  In mid-December the yoga teacher I’ve been following on Youtube – Yoga With Adriene, announced a 30 day challenge on her site.  For 30 days she’s posting a new video to try.  It started on Jan 2 and goes thru Jan 31.  The videos I’ve done so far range from 25-40 minutes.  They are simple and basic (so far) but also challenging enough for more seasoned yoga fans.
