Happy New Year, babes!
Now's the time when everyone starts making goals they want to accomplish for the new year. What are yours? I'm sure you can guess what two of the top resolutions made for 2018 are...that's right: eat better and workout. Both are necessary to improve your overall health, and both are things that I'm passionate about. So if these are on your list, I hope I can help motivate and inspire you on your journey!
While going to a gym sounds good, let's be real - it's not practical for everyone. Especially not 4-5 days a week and especially not for busy moms. The trick to being consistent with your workouts is easy: do it in your own home! You don't have to have a bunch of fancy equipment to get a good, fat-burning, muscle-toning workout. I'm about to show you two workouts that require only 1-2 varying weights, a workout mat (or good rug), and 20 min.
I teamed up with Love Winnie James to share some easy, at-home workouts that anyone can do. The babes behind this brand are the sweetest, and they just launched their new activewear line, which is AMAZING. Seriously, you're gonna want to check these new items out, y'all. And while you're at it, grab a few other pieces of their everyday pieces, too. You'll thank me. [wink, wink]
Ok, now back to the workouts. I have two lined up for you: a Beginner + an Advanced. Both take just 20 minutes and use very minimal equipment, but the Advanced involves a few more complicated moves. Feel free to try both out and see what you can do! And if you can only do the Beginner, that's fine! Hey, maybe you can make it your goal to be able to complete the Advanced within a few weeks! #goalsongoals
