Have you heard about the #31DaysofMovement content campaign that ALIVE Magazine St. Louis is running this summer? If not, it's time to jump on it! Click here to learn more and join the movement:
ALIVE is committed to helping YOU find your motivation to be healthy, get fit, and stay focused this summer. They've fired up their blog, Be Well STL, and I've been following each of their posts! I'm especially interested in the yoga at Ballpark Village, and their post about unconventional locations to practice yoga. I'm a fan of yoga and was doing it for a few months there pretty regularly, but it's just too expensive right now for me. I know, I know - it's an expense that should be worth it, but when you're trying to save ever penny, you have to let go of certain things.
So, how have I been staying in shape and exercising without going to a studio or gym? Did you peep my post about online workout videos? I think you should! But, to coincide with partnering with ALIVE to help promote #31DaysofMovement, I wanted to update you on my workout video favorites!
This also brings me to my major point about staying MOTIVATED to exercise. Exercising can be time-consuming, difficult, and tiring. If you're not seeing results, it can also be discouraging. What makes some people who love working out tick? What's their secret?!
I personally have discovered that what works best for me is to incorporate something that I already enjoy doing into my workout routines. For me, this means dance! I love to dance. I took classes for nearly 13 years of all types of dance, so it's natural for me to want to shake it a little bit to music. What's better than getting to shake it in a way that helps shape and tone my body?
