Eat Drink & Be Mary: Be Fit, Be Happy

Be Fit, Be Happy

Need to drink A LOT of water. Best if it is room temp.  Drink it frequently, a little at a time during cramping.




Confession: I actually really enjoy working out.  Call me crazy but I do.  If I can get my lazy booty to the gym; I enjoy it sooo much.  The adrenaline is addicting.  

Be Fit, Be Happy.

Working Out. A blog post about working out.  Where do I even start?  I am not a work out expert by any means.  Not even close.  I'm an amateur on this subject.  But I figured I could share some tricks tips to make the workout process more enjoyable & some things that work for me in regards to shedding off that unwanted weight.  And who doesn't wanna know any tips for losing weight?  I am all for finding out new tricks and advice that'll help me look good for bikini season.  Yes, 7 months in advance.


Tricks & Tips:

1. Drink a glass of water before every meal.   

2. Get a workout trainer buddy.  It's always more fun better to go workout when you have a friend with you.  Plus they'll motivate you to get your booty off the couch and into the gym.

3. Do work outs that you enjoy.  It's simple really.  Think about it.  If you dread going to the gym every day then chances are you won't go.  But for me, when I know I enjoy the specific workouts I'm doing that day I get much more motivated to go.

Be Fit, Be Happy--Weight Loss Tips 

4. Create a Pinterest board for motivation.  Workout ideas.  Healthy recipes.  Motivational sayings.  And then follow other Pinners for motivation.  
*The catch with this one is to acutally use the things you pin--gets me everytime.  

5. Drink water like it's going outta style.  Just do it.

6. Download fun apps to keep you motivated.  Apps make the workout process exciting and interesting--at least for me.
My personal favorite apps: MyFitnessPal | Hydrate | Runtastic

7. Remember that unfortunately you do not lose 10 pounds as soon as you step foot on a treadmill.  It takes time.  I get that this tip is common sense, but I added for myself.  To remind myself that it takes time and to be patient.  And on that note--don't obsess over the number on the scale.  There's more to you than a number.  


To keep myself accountable and continue on this journey I am taking Sarah's advice and coming up with some sort of reward system for myself.  And that my loves is to be continued...


What tips do you have for me?  What workouts work the best for you?  What insight can you share wth me?  I'm all ears!!

  1. Fortunately I have a leg up on the drinking water thing. I always drink a crap-ton of water, so at least I have that going for me, haha! But as far as being patient and realizing that I'm not gonna wake up and be skinny tomorrow, it gets me every time! Sometimes it actually makes me not want to even start, because I'm just like, ugh, it's gonna be soooo long before I even see a difference! It's something I definitely have to get over!
