How do you bring out the BOLD in your life? I bring out the bold in my life by spicing up my fitness routine and making no excuses. I found out a month ago that I broke my foot, so I have had to be super creative getting my workouts in every day. Whenever I think “I’ll just skip my workout today, it won’t make a difference,” I remember every little bit counts and get moving.
Here are just a few ways you can spice up your fitness routine:
Rock a new outfit
Anytime I get a new tank top or leggings, I feel like a rock star during my workout. Wearing a new outfit to a class or even just home alone makes working out more enjoyable. Be bold: pick out a new bright print or color.
Try out a new class
Do you always do yoga on Fridays? Are you a creature of habit? Step out of your comfort zone and try a class you have never taken before (like the time I took a surfing class in Dallas). Most places offer discounted or free first time visits, so take advantage!
Workout first thing in the morning
Working out in the morning sets the stage for a BOLD day. Sometimes I do my morning workout at home. Other times, I take an early morning class at The Barre Code Plano before work. I like to set my alarm for 10 minutes before I have to jet out the door, so I jump out of bed and get moving right away. You can read other tips for getting in a morning workout here.
Can I tell you a secret?
I hate brushing my teeth before I eat breakfast. Not only does it make food taste terrible, if I don’t brush after eating too, I don’t really feel like I have good breath. So, right before I head to Barre Code, I swish around some Listerine Total Care to give me that minty burst of energy (not to mention kill the germs that cause bad breath and make my teeth 50% stronger than just brushing). That way, I can workout, eat breakfast, and then brush. I buy toothpaste once a month (or so), so I just grab a new bottle of Listerine on my monthly trip to Walmart (it’s easy to remember since it’s on the same aisle).
Set an alarm on your phone or Fitbit to remind you to get up and MOVE (however you want) throughout the day! Maybe you take a 10 minute walk outside, do 50 squats by your chair, hold a 60 second plank, or turn on your favorite song and dance.
Since working out is dehydrating and dehydration leads to bad breath, I keep a Listerine Pocketpak handy. It’s quick and convenient, dissolves instantly and gives another minty burst of flavor that kills bad breath and wakes up my brain and body. Your moving reminders can double as a reminder to freshen up too.
