As we near the end of 2017, many of us will start to think about health and fitness goals for 2018! Making small, consistent changes can add up to big results. If you’re aiming to improve your wellness, I have a few simple recommendations to integrate into your lifestyle! Jumpstart your plans before the New Year even begins…you’ve got this!
In the Kitchen
Give your meals a major nutrient boost by swapping out pasta for vegetable noodles made with the Inspiralizer! By doing this, you’ll cut both calories and carbs and you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything. Veggie noodles are a fabulous substitute! There are a variety of delicious options when it comes to spiralizing, and these two cookbooks will inspire you with recipes to create at home! My personal favorites are zucchini, beet, and sweet potato!
Stay Motivated with these Fitness Essentials
Having a few pieces of exercise equipment at home saves time and money! You can get your workout in, minus the drive time to the gym or a class. A mat, ankle weights, a couple sets of dumbbells, and resistance bands take up very little storage space!
No matter what type of workout you do, having a Fitbit tracker can be super motiviating! I love the Alta HR model because in addition to tracking activity and sleep, it also tracks my heart rate. Using their app on my iPhone to see my progress is fun!
I reach for my Bose Sport Wireless Headphones often, especially when I’m at the gym or working at a coffee shop! They are comfortable to wear and provide amazing sound quality while blocking out noise. And the battery charge lasts quite a while! They’ve become a daily essential I keep in my handbag at all times!
I love finding pieces I can wear to the gym and as I go about my daily errands and activities. The key to mastering the athleisure look is to switch out your sneakers and throw on a chic layering top pre/post workout!
The Warrior by Danica winter line has plenty of stylish options to choose from! Start with lace inset leggings and a simple high neck tank. Then add a cold shoulder layered look top. And, don’t forget the cutest shearling slip on sneakers! These are so comfortable and wintery chic…also love how they look paired with my favorite denim. Add a stylish tote and you’re ready to go!
Hope these suggestions help you jumpstart your 2018 wellness goals! Wishing you a joyful holiday season!
