Staying committed to personal fitness/health in 2018

2018 is the year of accountability.

I’m a huge believer in personal growth/development and one of my biggest goals this year is to be in the best mental and physical shape of my life. I’ve always been active in the gym but I’ve felt like my body and weight has become complacent and I’m looking to push myself to new limits. An old friend of mine reached out to me recently after having twins and she told me she felt like she lost complete control of herself and she’s ready to turn it around and get her body back. This was the perfect opportunity for us both to blog our journey and keep us on track with our goals!

Height: 5’5″

CW: 134 lbs

GW: 122 lbs

I plan on actively documenting our progress and sharing delicious and healthy recipes as well as fun and effective workouts.

Here are some of our tips and tricks for staying on track:

1. Get (and use) a daily planner

I seriously don’t get how anyone can be productive without using a planner daily. I love writing my tasks down first thing in the morning and highlighting them when complete. I have OCD and can’t stand looking at a task that hasn’t been highlighted so it mentally keeps me in check to make sure I complete everything I need to do.

2. Setting micro / macro goals

Macro goal – Big goal

Micro goal – Deconstruct your “big goal” into small, tiny goals.

Most of the time, a big goal seems overwhelming and people are quick to give up when they aren’t getting results fast enough.

Micro goals are usually habits that eventually turn into a routine- and if you don’t know it takes 21 days to form a habit.

3. Toss the junk food from your cabinet and fridge

This sounds like the most obvious, but seriously it’s the most helpful. Throw everything the f##k out. You will eat out of boredom, and it’s usually the cookies.

4. Get a workout buddy

Having a gym buddy is the best way to stay on track. You can keep each other accountable and it challenges you to push through the days that suck. Cilia is my workout partner and I’m really lucky to have such a supportive friend to go through this fitness journey with!

5. Track results

It’s important to track your progress to make sure you are reaching your weekly/biweekly goals. Our gym has a scale that measures your muscle mass and BMI so we plan on checking in twice a month.

WISH ME LUCK and make sure to check in frequently. I carefully put together workouts that I think you’ll enjoy. I plan on giving this 100% and I’m excited to have you a part of my journey.

  • hola Pablo. #casamalca #liketkit http://liketk.it/2Dtxa @liketoknow.it
  • A couple of days ago we rented a car and drove an hour and 45 minutes deep into the jungle to visit this incredible cenoté. We witnessed an ancient Mayan wedding celebration which was one of the most incredible things we’ve ever seen. There were local cenotés near tulum but this experience was well worth the drive💀
  • our narcos inspired engagement session was taken at @casamalca - Pablo Escobar’s old private getaway 🇨🇴 👨🏻🛩💰💃🏼the photo shoot was short because we were both suffering from too many spicy margaritas from the night before (it wouldn’t be us if we weren’t hungover for our engagement pictures🤣) the rest of the photos are up on the blog! • link in bio • @mayoorquiin #tulum #tulummexico
  • Woke up in a paradise☁️
La Valise is an intimate, exclusive bungalow with only 9 rooms tucked away between the jungle and white sand beaches. It felt like our own private getaway! We extended our trip an extra night and Pasquale actually picked out this eco chic hotel (can you tell I’m rubbing off on him?😉) La Valise exceeded our expectations going above and beyond to make sure we felt right at home from the minute we got there. They noticed Pasquale’s birthday on his passport and even set up a special surprise for us!
Our dreamy room had a cozy bed and open shower with one of the cleanest beaches in Tulum - unfortunately there is a bad seaweed problem on the coast right now but they are working hard to mitigate it
You won’t find a warmer or more welcoming staff than at @lavalisetulum so if you have the opportunity to visit I highly recommend it!
  • sneak peak of our engagement photos🕊🕊 you make my heart so happy, I can’t wait to marry you🤘🏼
  • we’re supposed to be on the road heading to chichén itza but instead I’m laying here📍nursing a gnarly hangover. I think the bartender at casa malca misunderstood my tequila order as TE KILL HER.
  • on a spicy margarita diet🌶 #casamalca
  • don’t quit your daydream✨ #tulum
