How to Fit a Workout Into Your Busy Week

Getting up in the gym and working on your fitness isn’t as glamorous as Fergie sings it to be. Did you catch both of those song references? Some (most) days you find yourself realizing you haven’t had a chance to eat and it’s already 3 p.m. and when days don’t look like that, you would rather sit on the couch with a much-deserved drink in hand. Fitting a workout routine into your already-jam packed schedule can seem as hard as working out itself, but it’s not! With a little help from cute gym clothes, an accountability partner and more, you’ll be able to hit the gym, cross off your to-do list and look good while doing it!desk accessories

“Do These Yoga Pants Make My Butt Look Good?”

Don’t underestimate the power of a cute workout outfit. If it makes you feel kick-ass, you’re going to kick ass at the gym! Whether you’re into CrossFit, Pilates, running or spin, a good pair of yoga pants, sneakers and top plays a part in how you feel when you walk into the gym. Lay out your workout gear the night before to make you excited about how good you’ll look when you exercise and make it harder for you to avoid it in the morning!outdoor sign woman yoga

Hold Yourself Accountable

If you’ve put the gym on the back burner, it’s time to light a little fire under your butt! Get started by adding exercise back into your daily routine. There are several ways to hold yourself accountable: sign up for classes that have penalties if you don’t show up, join a community, workout with a friend or snap that #gymselfie and post it to your Instagram story.

I’ve found the best place to get an all-body workout in is at Orange Theory. They have classes for the early birds starting at 5 a.m. and the coaches give you a personal-trainer experience. It’s easy to track calories, set goals and work hard since everyone around you is doing the same workout as you!woman working outwoman boxing man and woman boxing

Make the Most of Your (Would Be) Commute

Working and living in California doesn’t happen without a commute. But who says you have to crawl along the interstate every time? Make traffic time your gym time! Wear gym clothes when dropping your kids off at school then head to the gym right after, or pack your gear and get your sweat on after work while you wait for traffic to die down.

Don’t Go From 0 to 100 (At Least Not Right Away)

Stay realistic! You shouldn’t set yourself up for failure by setting unrealistic expectations. You can’t expect to go from never working out to sweating at the gym every day of the week. Set small goals, stay strong and get going! Soon, you’ll be the person who works out so much that people will ask, “How do you have time for that?!”
