The Be-All-End-All Fitness Routine

I HATE THE GYM. Okayyy, I just don’t love it. I can mayyybe force myself to go to the gym once or twice a week. I used to think the only way I was going to make gains is if I went to the gym 6 days a week and lifted heavy weights and did cardio on repetitive machines. Yuck.

Biking is one of the only activities my Dad can do (he has a bad hip), so I’ve gotten it from him!

But yuck for ME. I just don’t love it. It’s a personal feeling. I’ve found that I love exercise that gets me outside, allows me to see new sights and breathe in fresh air.

My dog motivates me to get outdoors and run! He’s got to get his exercise, so I guess I do too…

So the way to “get fit” is to do the activities you love! Is it yoga, surfing, or workout classes? Or is it weights, the gym, and boxing? Or is it gardening and playing with your dog? The possibilities are endless.

Backpacking and hiking are other activities I enjoy! Here I am on El Camino de Santiago in Spain.

If you are doing activities you love, you will become fit because you will put your heart into those activities. Plus you will be happier and more confident.

My mom and I recently completed the Northface Endurance Challenge Half Marathon in San Francisco! Having a running buddy makes life so much easier:)

In the words of my Dad: do what you love. Happiness, success, and love will follow.
