Happy Wellness Wednesday everyone!! I hope you have had a beautiful morning, and an inspiring week so far!!  

Something that has really resonated with me this week has been happiness, rejuvenation, and feeling refreshed!  A healthy body starts from the inside out, which is why releasing negative vibes and detoxifying is one of the best things!  This can be letting go of anything from habits, food/drink, relationships/friendships, social media; truly anything that may not be bringing joy into your life.  Make today your day to cleanse, your day to focus on yourself and your happiness, and to refresh and rejuvenate your soul!

With the new season upon us and the semester in full swing, I wanted to share an updated workout routine! We’ve had a little bit of cooler weather in Michigan, and I must admit I am completely ready for fall!  The leaves are beginning to change, apple orchards are preparing their infamous pumpkin doughnuts and hot cider, and my 21st birthday is a little over two weeks away; it’s time to amp up my workout routine!!

How to Stay Fit During School


Happy Wellness Wednesday everyone!!  I hope you had the most beautiful long weekend, and are having a lovely day so far!  

Since the semester is officially in full swing, I wanted to share some of my favorite tips to staying fit during the school year!  Fitting in a workout isn’t always easy, but it’s one of the best things that you can do for your body!  Staying “fit” doesn’t just refer to being physical, it also refers to being mentally fit as well.  A healthy body starts with a healthy mind, so taking care of yourself both mentally and physically is key!  Also, definitely make sure to stay in touch because I’ll be sharing my updated workout routine for fall next week!!

Happy Wellness Wednesday everyone!! I hope you all have had a wonderful week so far, and have been absolutely loving the warm weather!  I apologize for not posting since last Wednesday, I have had quite a busy schedule with my semester ending next week!  My final day of junior year is April 20th (no finals for me this year, yay!), and I could not be more excited!

The lovely spring weather has inspired me to amp up my workout and wellness routine, especially since we’re heading into summer vacation!  I wanted to share my current routine with you all, while also including a walkthrough of how I organize my fitness/wellness planner!  I use my Erin Condren Life Planner, which is the main way that I keep track of my activity per day!

As you may have noticed, this is definitely not the week of May 1st!  My planner is filled to the max up until the end of April, so I decided to plan everything out on a fresh week!  This information is relevant to the beginning of this week, April 10-12, and it is what I have accomplished thus far this week!  Also, the Bikini Series and Whole30 Diet are actually relevant to the first week of May (not April 10-12), and I fully intend on sharing my journey with you all starting on May 1!  Hopefully that makes sense!! 😉 

ANYWAY

Each Sunday I like to plan out the upcoming week’s workouts, while writing my weekly goals to the left of the spread!  I love writing things down beforehand, because I am always more likely to accomplish the task if it’s written in my planner.  Plus, who doesn’t love checking off completed tasks?!  I also like to track my mood after my workout(s), the calories I burned for that day, my water intake, and my step count (I keep track of that information on my Apple Watch, which I wear every single day).  I also enjoy tracking my meals each day, as well as snacks I’ve had, and I like to use the “Meals” section to do some meal prepping for the upcoming week!

When it comes to workouts, I generally stick to cardio, core, and hot yoga!  Lately I’ve been getting back into weight lifting and strength training during my Body Sculpting class, and it’s actually inspired me to lift more weights over the summer.  I take my Dance for Fitness (cardio) class on Monday and Wednesday as well as Body Sculpting, and I usually run a few miles/spin and attend my favorite hot yoga class on Tuesday and Thursday.  I also enjoy following the weekly/monthly workout routines by both Blogilates and Tone It Up, because the workout programs are truly the most fun!  I believe a successful workout not only leaves you sweaty, but smiling!  I’m going to be participating in the TIU Bikini Series once again this year, which is an 8 week program designed to sculpt that summer body!  Who’s with me?!

When it comes to overall health and wellness, the most important thing is to do what makes your mind, body, and soul happy!  I feel the most energized, recharged, and refreshed when I complete a good workout, but there are plenty of other times when a lazy day is much needed!  That’s okay!  As long as you love yourself inside and out, and find the utmost joy in what you’re doing, that’s all that matters!  Your body is a temple for your mind, body, and soul, so nourish it with only happy thoughts, good health, and positive energy!

Thank you for sticking with me through my small hiatus, the end of the semester workload hit a lot quicker than I anticipated!  Also, I’m curious as to what some of your favorite workouts/wellness habits are? Definitely let me know in the comments!!

Love & Good Vibes
