So I haven't been as active and healthy as I should be as it's the holidays and I can't go to the gym at my college anymore. Anyone recommend any home workouts for starting back up again, or ways to motivate myself to eat healthy and be active?
Cardio workouts such as running are a great place to start. Then just add in workouts that work muscles you want to improve (arms, abs, legs etc). If you are looking to make a lifestyle change in what to eat, start off small. Search for recipes that have healthy ingredients that you like. For instance, I found out I really like quinoa and started experimenting with different recipes or that! Good luck :)
I suggest a vinyasa flow. Yoga. Because it's not too difficult that you'll burn yourself out the first day and not too easy that you won't get the endorphins flowing. And most of all your body just feels amazing afterward. Don't get me wrong working out is great but it's chaotic. You have your music on and the adrenalin is pumping and your mind and body is like AAAH!
At the risk of sounding like a pansy, a Vinyasa flow funnels all that power into something beautiful and graceful. You'll feel, for lack of a better word, great.
Ofcourse you can compliment this with cardio and strength training. That's what I do
2 days yoga + 1 day acro + 3 days body weight training and cardio.
