glow up weekly 01: creating a workout routine

hey frens! who is excited for the first glow up weekly? I know I sure am!! today we’re going to be chatting about creating a workout routine (and there’s a free printable, woo)

if you’ve worked out before, or even if you haven’t, I’m positive you’ve heard of a workout routine! it’s super simple, but basically it’s just a routine (that can change to fit your life, of course) that you repeat for consistent workouts! having a plan is really motivating, at least for me, and it makes working out so much more managable.

so here’s how to make your own!

first, pick activities to put on it! this can be anything you’d like. I recommend picking some things you love (like volleyball or swimming) and some that might not be your favorite but you know are super good for you, like running or pilates. try some new things and figure out what works for you and is something you’d like to put on your plan.

next, check the calendar. look at your local gym or yoga studio for classes you might be interested in and see if there’s room on your calendar. also, think about your habits. do you always hang with friends on saturday mornings? are you always really tired and unmotivated on thursday afternoons? pick days you know you’ll feel motivated and ready to work! I’d suggest starting out with putting three days a week on your plan because that’s manageable and easy to fit in.

now, put it all together and write it down! there’s actually a spot on the printable for that, so print that out and write out your weekly workout schedule. step back and tweak things about it to make it perfect for you. once you like it, put it on your calendar or hang the printable in your room so you won’t forget.

finally, put it into action! you can always make changes if there’s a schedule change or you piled too much on your plate. this is the most important step, so don’t procrastinate! stick to your workout plan and just go for it, girl! I promise you will not regret it (:

today’s freebie:

in my opinion, today’s freebie is super cute (I might be a bit biased though πŸ˜‰ )

save this to your device and print it out!

  1. YAY! I’m the first!…I hope HAHA.

    Beautiful freebies, Christina!! Did you make it yourself?

    And yes! I have a work out routine, plus I’m a yogi. The thing is I’m a bit off the track lately.
    But, now that I’m more inspired, I’m going to start fresh again!!

    Wish me luck!πŸ’–

  3. Awesome! I’m going to use this. As of now, my workout routine is ballet/dance on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, but I like to incorporate some stretching, foot excersises (for dance lol), and a follow-along workout from YouTube, so this’ll help me keep track of what to do when! Thanks! πŸ™‚
