Three Ways To Help You Stay Fit And Motivated During The Holidays

Good morning everyone, today I’ve partnered up with Finish Line to share a review on the new Adidas Alpha Bounce running shoes along with three ways to help you stay fit and motivated during the holidays. I know I haven’t posted a ‘Motivational Monday’ post in a while, but I figured we could all use a little pep talk this week with Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season coming up this Thursday. I know it’s hard to not let Thanksgiving dinner and holiday treats get the best of you, but at least you can always work off those extra calories by hitting the gym. The trick is to keep yourself motivated throughout the season! Check out what keeps me motivated to workout below.

Three Ways to Help You Stay Fit and Motivated During the Holidays:

1) Nothing motivates me more than a new pair of running shoes and some cute activewear! The Adidas AlphaBounce running shoes are super comfortable and cushiony. Plus they look super sleek with my activewear looks. Not to mention that they’re currently on sale! Just wait until you the price in your cart on FinishLine.com. For size reference, I ordered the size 6.5, which is my normal size. However, I’ve heard that for running shoes, you should always go a half size down because you want them to be nice and snug for extra support when running. With that being said, I could have easily gone with the size 6, but I don’t mind the 6.5, but with a thicker sock.

2) Give yourself “doable” weekly workout goals. For example, if you have a busy work schedule, don’t give yourself a goal of hitting the gym five times a week. Instead of setting yourself up for potential failure, try and commit to three days a week and maybe an extra long walk with the dog or your workout buddy, which brings me to my last and most important tip!

3) Recruit a workout a partner so that you have someone else to hold you accountable for your workouts. Plus it’s so much nicer to workout with a friend versus working out alone. I’m much more likely to get myself in the gym or stay longer at the gym if I’m working out with a buddy.  I also love going on early morning walks or bike rides with my neighbor.

Bonus Tip: Make a deal with yourself that every time you put on active wear clothes for the day, you actually do something active instead of just running your errands while rocking the “athleisure” trend! Don’t worry, I’m guilty of this too!
