Happy March 1! I love this time of year! Spring is just around the corner, and the temperatures are starting to warm up a bit. That also means bikini season is right around the corner, eek! I have been enjoying oversized sweaters and jeans for too long! So it's time to amp up my workouts and my healthy eating quite a bit. I'm so excited to be teaming up with my friends My Life Well Loved and Happily Hughes to start a 2 week paleo diet challenge, and it starts today! For the next couple weeks, I'll be bringing you fitness posts each Wednesday and Thursday including how to workout at home, my favorite paleo diet recipes, my favorite workout gear and even how to include your toddler in workouts.
A couple of my favorite paleo/primal articles are here and here, and this is a great beginner post that explains what paleo/primal eating is. They also have a great grocery shopping list and a food pyramid that I carry around in my wallet for ideas and help. For the next 2 weeks the goal is to eat paleo and workout 3-5 times per week. I am a key believer in setting goals that are actually realistic. If they're not realistic, then there is no point, and I feel like they actually do more harm than good. So if I only work out 3 times each week, then great! If I workout 5 times each week, then even better!
The important thing for me is to make each workout count. I plan to do some running outside, some stroller walks, some bike rides, some TRX and Pure Barre classes and some weight lifting at the gym. And I am also a firm believer that being active and eating healthy both play into that. So...who will be joining us?! Leave me a comment below or feel free to comment or email me if you have any questions too! And then keep reading below to enter the giveaway for $50 from Yummie!
