The Sweats Edition

Friday, March 20, 2015





Recognize this little getup? This post was unfortunately supposed to be posted quite a bit ago, but with the last month being sick and all it never made the cut. But, I'm slowly making my come back in the blogging world so here we are yet again~ Maybe you've realized the nifty title (I'm quite proud of it if you didn't notice when I said the corny word nifty), but we are here to discuss exercise. Don't you dare run away from me yet little missy or mister or maybe in the matter of this case click out of your browser~ That's right I said the wretched word. . .exercise. This semester in school I seemed to find myself in quite a pickle or maybe for some people their worst nightmare. . . I accidentally signed myself up for a fitness course. Raising your eyebrows at the word accidentally? I was under the false impression it was simply a health and wellness lecture. Oh, but to my surprise that was not the case at all. Oh, boy if someone had a camera the first day of class and took of a picture of my face when the professor started rambling about dead lifting and tread mills what a sight that would have been. Lets just say I almost bolted out of the room~ 

But, a few months in and I feel better than ever! I never exactly hated exercise I just never knew too much about it. I loved to go out for walks and I've always been crazy about jumping jacks for some odd reason that I still can't put my finger on. But, that basically was the end of my line on expertise on the subject. Since this class though I have learned so much and I thought it was only fair to share it with all of you!

Did you know exercise is able to reduce stress&anxiety? 
Many studies have shown that exercise is very effective at reducing anxiety levels. When you exercise your brain releases chemicals called endorphins which trigger positve feelings in ones body. Feeling a little stressed about some dead lines or maybe you just want to get away from everything for a little while? Try going out for a walk or maybe even a brisk run if you're feeling up to it! Who doesn't want more happiness in their life?!

Benefits of Exercise
A cup of happiness isn't the only benefit exercise comes along with! Oh, the list can go on and on. A few are a reduced risk of heart disease, reduced risk of diabetes, increased bone mass, increased longevity, and improved psychological well being~ Um, yes please!

"Lifting weights are for men"
Ladies, ladies I promise you that you will NOT become bulky if you begin lifting. Pinky promise! This is coming from someone who has twig arms and never touched a weight till I entered this class. FUN FACT: I can now bench press 45 lbs~ Strength training is so beneficial for the body improving your overall composition and flexibility.  You will build your strength as well as be one step closer to a six pack~ Lift dem' weights, girl!

Do squats! 
Trust me your bum will thank you later ;) Need I say more!

Work Hard, Play Hard
Are you working out? Don't forget that your body needs rest too! Being physically active has amazing benefits, but to reap those benefits you shouldn't forget to catch up on that beauty sleep~ Your recovery periods are just as important as exercise it self! So don't be shy to take it easy sometimes~

I hope you lovelies were able to learn a thing or two! Have any tips you'd like to share with me? Leave your comments below I'd love to hear them~  By the way am I the only one who's obsessed how cute work out gear is? That itself is enough to inspire me to exercise more~

  12. Great post and super cute sweats - love the sequin heart.
    I agree entirely - fitness is so key to reducing stress and anxiety - I love working out for how it makes me feel mentally just as much as for what it can do for my body physically.
