Real girls, real lives. Not athletes, personal trainers or nutritionists. Just regular girls dealing with work, family and friends while trying to live their healthiest life. They dished on the best healthy living advice they’ve received and their answers are practical enough to squeeze into the busiest of schedules.
Focus on Change
“If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.” Tayla @the_fit_econometrician
Wake up and go to Sleep Happy
“Healthy living is happy living. Make sure that whatever you choose to do with your workouts, your diet, your lifestyle, is what makes you the happiest you there is. The moment a fitness routine or food routine makes you bored, tired, angry, or sad – stop and change something. Do whatever you need to do to make sure that you wake up and go to sleep happy” Jacqui [@jhbeats_]
Don’t Fear Pushing Yourself
“Don’t be afraid to push yourself until you’re sore. No one ever regrets a workout where you finish off sweaty…and there’s always foam rolling and glutamine for the pain afterwards” Kyla [@kbctbikiniadventure]
Ability, Motivation and Attitude is everything
“The quote I have on my home gym wall is my motto. ABILITY is what you’re capable of doing. MOTIVATION determines what you do. ATTITUDE determines how well you do it” Lucinda [@fit_metalhead]
Listen to Your Body
“Listen to your body and move at your own speed.” People always associate fitness with health, and when done right yes it is. But it’s so easy to overdo it – at which point it becomes unhealthy. If your body needs a break give it a break. If your body isn’t getting enough nutrition on your diet, change it. Just listen to what your body needs, trust me it will tell you.” Dune [@dunes_fitlife]
