It's not uncommon for people to dive in and go from zero to 60 right out of the gates. We want results, we want them fast and we want to ensure that all of our hard work will pay off. So we double down.
I didn't take my own advice and I'm paying the price. With my tail between my legs, I'm letting you in on where I went astray as a cautionary tale...
A couple months ago I started to noticed I had been slacking on my workouts for long enough. I was a bit soft, more easily winded and I was getting achey and anxious. I realized I needed to get back into a more consistent workout routine. So I did.
Fall is my favorite time of year. And it's not just because I'm a fan of the chunky sweaters and boots (I am), but because it's the perfect time to set some goals with a clear deadline (hello, New Year!).
So, instead of ending the year focusing on the possibilities 2020 will bring, let's take all that energy we put into starting the year strong into finishing this one even stronger!
Our healthy choices, workout routines, and clean eating can be really overwhelming, especially in the beginning. Often times we can't even find a way to start while sometimes we can make a plan for a week or two to get right back to where we were getting to classes again, meal prepping, waking up early for our magic mornings... but then a slight breeze (or lack there of) knocks the wind out of our sails and we fall back into a routine full of quick and junky meals and skipped workouts.

If you're someone who's on Social Media and follows anything to do with the health and wellness industry, you've probably heard of Intuitive Eating. It's a pretty buzzy topic lately so I thought I'd take some time to give you the low-down on Intuitive Eating AND how it relates to what we Savages do (same same but different).
Well, I know I convinced a lot of you that a home workout is a significant key to finding that balance that you're looking for, but we're still faced with the HOW. I have this conversation on the reg: "I just can't get to my classes as much as I want! I wish I was someone who could motivate to workout at home, but I just can't!" Sound familiar? Well I’ve got some solutions for you. Yes, YOU!
Once those kiddos get in their last tinkle and their final "1-more-minute" of cuddles, and their eyes flutter shut, we desperately seek a little winding down. But what if it's not feeling good anymore? At first it was a nice treat you looked forward to, but lately you wake up feeling bummed about all that sugar (physically and/or emotionally)… I’ve got you, mama! Check out these tips to reign it all in and still feel chill AF
This is the season for a lot of pressure to get your physical self "ready" for the beach vacations and pool parties and, while I am definitely on board for working toward whatever health and wellness goals you have, these sentiments are exactly what keeps us yo-yo-ing, feeling guilty, feeling like we're failing and all that other not-awesome stuff we feel about ourselves and our bodies.
