There are a few items that are must-have arsenal when living a healthy lifestyle. Your fridge, which we’ve already covered, and your gym bag!
So, the key to a successful workout is successful planning! I actually keep two gym bags… I know it’s insane… But I do not want to entertain that excuse that “I do not have what I need” EVER!
In my gym bag I have 10 essentials:
1. A Fitbook: An amazing journal/planner to track all of my calories and workouts and MORE!
2. A GOOD pair of shoes: I had my feet analyzed by a shoe company that told me the best shoe for me. You can get this done at many running stores, and yes it is worth the financial investment! A good shoe can save you many injuries!
3. A pair of workout capris: For me, shorts ride up and pants are too hot, so capris are a perfect balance. I have also found that the more fitting they are the less chaffing they cause. (more…)
One of the first things I figured out when I got home from the Biggest Loser ranch is that it all happened so fast it was hard to remember it all. Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels had done so many awesome workouts with us, but amidst the sweat, tears and pain I had forgotten exactly how they went.
I also realized that journaling my food intake on the ranch was always the sure way to predict my weight loss for the week. I searched high and low for something that could help me in this area and what I found was short of amazing… the Fitbook! It’s a goal setting, journaling, reminder, planner and motivator all in one. It tracks your workouts and your food. It helps you set daily, weekly, and long term goals. It helps you when you are having those blah weeks to look back to your killer weeks. It is a great tool and I think it has helped me so much that it might you as well!
