Why I work out everyday

I just want to say that I'm not this super motivated person that wakes up everyday thinking how awesome it is going to be to workout.  A lot of days, I spend the first 15 minutes of each workout convincing myself to not give up and keep going.  But I've been working out at home for so long now and I know it makes me feel so much better that I just get it done.   

{Quote by Jim Rohn}

A huge reason I choose to work out everday is that it's actually easier for me to keep up with.

If a doctor told me to take my medicine every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and one of those days it had to be at noon, another it had to be at 3, and so on, it would be so hard for me to keep up.  Yes, I could write it down, schedule it, whatever but the fact is that it would make it even harder for me to make taking my meds a habit.  I know myself.  I know that I would miss a day, have to wait two days to catch up, I might forget again or make something else a priority and then I've blown it.  Or at least I'll tell myself that I blew it.  {We can be mean to ourselves can't we?}

I've done this time and time again with my workouts before being introduced to Beachbody programs.  I would make things so complicated and overscheduled that it was actually easier to get behind.  (And I would drive to the gym which would put another obstacle into the equation)  I've been most successful when I've made my workout schedule less complicated and just stayed at home.  Beachbody programs make my schedule for me.  They tell me what DVD to do, I pop it in, and I get it done.  Easier, I tell ya.

So I work out every day and it's pretty much a habit now.  If I miss or decide to take off a day, it's ok,  I'll be ready to do it tomorrow.
If you have any questions about my journey to a healthier lifestyle or Beachbody products please shoot me an email.  I would love to chat!


  1. Hi Kristen. I was going to e-mail you, but couldn't find your e-mail address. Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Liebster Award on my blog. I'm not sure if you have heard of this or have received this award before?! But I love your blog. So you can play or not. It's up to you!

    P.S. You are so awesome with your workouts. You really do motivate me. :)

    1. Thanks so much Barb! I fixed my email issue and there is an email button to the right now if you want to reach me for anything else. Always so much to learn about blogging!

  2. Hi Kristen- Barb sent me your way! It's nice to "meet" you! I think it's great you workout everyday...maybe I'll come visit more often for some motivation! I would love to up my workouts to daily...I know I sure would feel better! I just bought a new dvd and ball workout yesterday at Target and today I feel like I got hit by a truck that's how sore I am! I am following...so I will stop back often!

    1. Hey Kerri! Nice to emeet you too. I'm hoping to post more about my workouts and nutrition. But I love doing house stuff too so my blog is definitely a mix of ME. I love using the ball during workouts. My fave instructor Chalene Johnson uses it alot in one of my DVD's. It's so good that you are sore. You pushed yourself in a good way. Keep going and I promise you will work through that soreness and feel so much stronger! I did a different Yoga yesterday and I am so sore in my arms today! I would love for you to visit often. Keep it up!
