A little Haul – My protein

I love buying new workout clothes. Clothes that I feel comfortable to train in.

Therefore I took advantages of My protein back to school sale where I got 38% off. I love a good sale ­čÖé

The pro Tech reversible Bomber – Dark blue
The white marble leggings
The Inspire seamless leggings – Sulphur leggings

My opinion about the three items:
All of them are in the size Medium

  • The pro Tech reversible Bomber – Dark blue
    Love this jacket feels quite thick, definitely a jacket for the colder months.
    It can be reversible, so you have more shiny puffy side and on the other side you get a more matte side. It has pockets on both side.
  • The white marble leggings
    Love the print on these. Feels like they are double layered so it not so sheer. There is a part right before the elastic, where it is sheer, but other than that they are squat proof. If you are Medium sometimes large I would definitely size up, I didn’t size up and i regret it a bit, because they are kind of hard to put on. luckily they are stretchy, but I don’t like spending 2 minutes to put them on. And if you are a size small, sometimes a medium, I would take the medium.
    The fabric is more silky than a cotton feel. kind of like a swimsuit. they feel very comfortable
  • The Inspire seamless leggings – Sulphur leggings in grey
    I bought these because they remind me of the gymshark leggings(I don’t know the name of them)
    I have these leggings in blue, I believe hey have the same design, but I am not sure.
    These leggings I got in a size Medium, the blue one I also have is in small.
    I would say that these grey ones are less stretchy that the blue ones.
    And I would not use them for a leg day, because they are see through. I have only tried them with a thong. There is a bit of fabric where there are small holes and you can definitely see the underwear through.

How I stay motivated to work out, and tips on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle

I have always loved working out, but sometimes my motivations for me gets really low. I have been trying a lot of different things. And I wanted to share with you what works and for me. Try to remember that these things works for me, so there might be different things that works for you. The first thing you need to learn, is to try to listen to your body. Don’t do these thing if you hate doing them, do them because YOU want to.

  1. Work out when you have the most energy
    I hate working out when I get home from school, I feel lazy. And when I get home I have homework to do. And after I have made my homework, I have to make dinner. And after that I just want to relax. So i try to work out first thing in the morning, i feel like I get a lot of energy, and I fell more focused when I get to school. And even my metabolism gets boosted.
  2. Get some inspiration
    I try to look for inspiration pretty much everywhere. I use a lot of social media, especially instagram. i follow people that are a little fitter than me. I  do not want to look exactly like that. because we are all on our own journey, and let face it we all have different body types. Instead I try to say I want to be as strong as her. Or just use that person for motivation, and sometimes say if she can do it I can do it too. But be careful, many of the pictures on instagram is photoshopped, so many of the people dont actually look like that. so just be careful.
  3. Stay away from all the bad food
    If you have a hard time staying away from candy, and chips and so on. Stop buying them, dont have them lying around in your cupboard. I know I have a really hard time staying away from those snacks if I have them lying, instead buy fruits and veggies, that you can easily grab on the go. or even healthy bars that contain a low fat and sugar.
  4. Make yourself a workout plan
    I work out 5 times a week. for sometimes 30 to 45 minutes. sometimes 1 hour, but only if I have the time. And I use Blogilates workout calendar. It gives me the workouts I need to do that day. And I try to follow them everyday, or if there are any workout videos that I don’t like, I switch it out with another one. Also because I live in an apartment I can’t jump around, so I try to do more quiet but effective workouts. If you subscribe to her email you can get an code each month you have to write to acces the calendar. you can just search for her name on youtube. And if I don’t want to do some of her workout videos I use the channel Fitnessblender. They have so many exercises that there is something for everyone, no matter what fitness level you are on.
  5. Just do It
    Sometimes there are times when I really don’t fell like working out, but I tend to just do it, even though I dont want to. There are sometimes where I don’t do it, but then I kind of miss it. I also think the more you incorporate it in your daily routine, the more it is just going to be habit for you. And I always try to remember that in the long run I am going to be stronger, happier and halthier. Sometimes it takes a long time to get a body you can be happy about, but if you eat healthy and work out then you have nothing to worry about.
  6. See the progress
    Especially in the beginning you have a tendency to quit, and you dont see your body changing. But as I said it takes a while before you can see those changes, and you may not be able to see those changes yourself, so go out and ask others if they see a changes in your body. Or even take pictures of yourself and then go back to look at them, when some months have passed. I also think you have to say, I am happier now, you may not see a  big change in your body, but you can tell in how your felling. Being able to say I am happier, stronger and healthier instead of saying I am skinnier is so powerful to me, and makes me more happy to think about that instead.
  7. Get a workout partner
    sometimes it really helps you to be motivated when you have someone to, for example go to the gym with. Or even go running. Or if there are any exercise that you like to do together. It sometimes help that there are another person in the same situation as you, that can help you in this hard progress.
  8. Look at recipes
    I look at recipes that I want to make, and also incorporate food that actually tastes good. It really gets me excited to make my food, and eat it. I use Pinterest whenever I want to have some recipe inspiration. They have so  many recipes.

 

I hope this was helpful to you, and I would love to know if there is anything that keeps you motivated, og you have any tips when it comes to health and fitness.

 

Much Love
