My Workout Routine

I totally got this quote from google and I’m obsessed with it! This quote totally embodies my life and who I am and not only that, but it reminds me that it’s okay to not always be on the top of your game and to have some off days! Life truly is all about finding a healthy balance!

To start off; I am absolutely in no way, shape, or form a fitness expert. I know a lot of people go to the gym for many reasons but my personal reason is to get toned so I focus on areas that I want to look better!

I also want to note that working out is amazing and it is helpful, but dieting is also key! Everything in moderation is the best for you and choosing the healthier options when you can  really makes a noticeable difference. Working out and dieting go hand in hand and they work together! I’m also saying that you don’t need to give up eating or starve yourself, but definitely watch what you eat and try to go for the healthier option but remember that cheat days and cheat meals are acceptable!  


 I personally know what works for me and after a bunch of messing around with workouts, I’ve found one that’s suitable for me! My workout takes me anywhere from 1-1.5 hours depending on my level of intensity and if I want to add-on extras! Here’s my base workout!  As a side note, I try to go 2-3 times a week if I can.

Arc Trainer (30 minutes)

I start off on the arc trainer which I really enjoy, I immediately start off with an incline of 20 and a resistance of 35. Every 10 minutes I increase the resistance by +5 and end at a resistance of 45! I end up burning about 300 calories and I usually get to a mile in distance!

Here’s a fun workout idea that has different intervals and intensities which I may try out for myself!

Abs (30-45 minutes)

Crunches (80)

Russian Twists (50)

Side Crunches (80 – Left)

Russian Twists (50)

Side Crunches (80 – Right)

Russian Twists (50)

Side Weights (30 Left)

Russian Twists (50)

Side Weights (30 Right)

Plank (1 Minute)

Here’s a link with helpful form and workout tips and routines!

Butt (15-20 Minutes)

Leg Lifts (2 sets, 25 reps each leg)

( I keep my leg straight for these and just bring it up or down, eventually I would love to add ankle weights once I’m comfortable with these)

Sumo Squats (3 sets, 30 reps)


This is my standard workout routine and I’m always switching it up and changing it around, but right now I’m finally happy with it! I also used to run on the treadmill which did wonders for my butt except it started to really bother my ankles so I haven’t been doing it so much! A tip when running is no matter what, sprint the last 5th of every mile (or more if you can)! That really helps get your booty in shape!

JUST REMEMBER THAT GETTING YOUR BODY TO WHERE AND HOW YOU WANT IT TO BE TAKES TIME AND LEARNING SELF LOVE! It’s taken me so long to love my body (even though I’m still not 100% confident in it) regardless of how big my love handles look or how bloated I feel. I’m learning to be kinder to myself and that’s the most important thing there is. I honestly notice on different days my body looks different and that’s okay. It’s all about how I feel about myself and I’ve come to terms with it and now I can only do my best to keep up with the goals I’ve set for myself!
