Seven easy ways you can take your fit girl status to the next level.
Are you sick of waking up every Monday morning with the same ‘this week i’m going to be healthy’ spiel, only to find that by Thursday you haven't hit the gym once, but instead ate your weight in popcorn while watching Married At First Sight? If that sounds like you, you’re absolutely not alone babe. It does mean that you may need a little more consistency in your routine before you can get to #fitgirl status though. So what exactly does a fit girl do other than making eating healthy and sweating it out at the gym everyday look so easy?
She goes to the gym even when she doesn't want to
Sometimes you fall off the wagon but a fit girl always gets back on track, especially when she doesn't want to. As much as working out shouldn’t be a chore in life, sometimes a little tough love on yourself to put your Lululemon tights on and get to the gym is necessary. You’re always going to feel better after a workout, so no matter how tired you are after a long day of work, turn up that playlist and get your endorphins pumping. Your future self will thank you for it. If you’re really struggling, enlist a gym buddy for motivation or try a new workout, a change of scenery is always motivating.
She drinks plenty of water
It is recommend that we should be drinking at least 2 litres of water every day. Drinking water can help flush our bodies of unwanted toxins as well as generate new cells that help keep our skin and hair glowing. If you need some help on upping your H2O intake, a new drink bottle is always a good way to get started. Remember herbal teas are included in your 2 litres everyday, so if you like green, peppermint or even matcha tea, drink away babes.
She gets plenty of sleep
Sleep plays such a huge role in our physical and mental health. It not only helps with the healing of our vital internal organs but it aids with concentration, productivity and learning. Did you know that poor sleep has even been strongly linked to weight gain? I don’t know about you, but we will certainly be making more of an effort to get some extra shut eye in our lives.
She knows that balance is key
While working out and eating right is important, a healthy mindset is where it all starts. If you have a healthy attitude about yourself, your body and your goals, you’re already a winner. When it comes to a healthy lifestyle, slow and steady wins the race. There is no point going on a no-carb, no-sugar, no-anything diet if you’re only going to stick it out for a few days. Balance really is key. Find a healthy balance between eating your greens while treating yourself to your favourite foods at the same time. Over time, your healthy choices will turn into habits and you won’t ever remember a time when you weren't a #fitgirl.
She doesn't compare herself to others
A fit girl knows that comparison is the thief of joy. Social media can end up being a sad place when you’re constantly comparing your reality to everyone else's highlight reel. If you’re having a bad day, avoid the gram and go for a walk in the fresh air instead. If you’d prefer to stay cosied up inside, read your favourite book or write in your journal and remember why you’re amazing, beautiful and good enough, just the way you are.
Starts her day with a routine
Starting your day with a good routine is the best way to set yourself up for success. Making your bed, going for a walk, doing a quick meditation and even putting your favourite BB Cream are all perfect examples. Having a healthy breakfast is also important for restoring glucose levels in the body and lowering your stress hormones. If you’re a babe who really struggles to stomach a meal first thing, start with a delicious smoothie or celery juice instead.
Now you know how to start your day right, keep a healthy mindset and find more balance in your routine, we’re certain next week really is going to be your week - and each one after that. You got this BB babes.
