When I was working out a lot before the wedding, I really didn’t have in my head that I was “working out for the wedding.” I made a lot of lifestyle changes that made me feel good in general, and I had no doubts that I’d be able to keep them up post-honeymoon. Honestly, it’s been a little easier said than done over the last few months–Dave and I have been busy this summer, and hard workouts (more than just our morning walks) and healthy, home-cooked meals have been the first things to slide. In an effort to get our motivation back up, we signed up for a 5K in August, and are planning to sign up for a 5-mile race in October–having that looming on the calendar is scary, but I think it’ll be a great challenge. I also treated myself to a few cute new pieces of workout gear, because that’s always pretty good motivation for me ;) I’m a big Carrie Underwood fan, and I love everything from her new activewear line, Calia–the colors and patterns are so pretty, and everything I tried on was super comfortable! I also love the mission of the line: “…Because we can be the strongest versions of ourselves in every facet of our lives. We can look as beautiful as we feel. We can Stay the Path.”
How do you stay motivated to work out? Tell me all your tricks so I can try them!
