Plan your daily sweat
The LSF Daily 10 is the KEY to your summer fitness routine. It’s just ten minutes, that’s it. AND it’s at your fingertips in the LSF app. So you can do it anytime, anywhere. How great is that!?If you are just starting your fitness journey, this is the perfect place to start. It’s gradual and I promise, promise, PROMISE that if you do it slowly but surely, you’ll see better results over time. If this is less than you’re used to, the break might be nice. Or add this to your daily sweat sesh for the extra challenge.
Truly, no matter what fitness level you are – doing the LSF Daily 10 creates new and better fitness habits for your everyday. Committing to show up (even for that short time!) is the key (because guess what, you’ll almost definitely do more than ten minutes once you’re there). And the best part? I designed the LSF Daily 10 to be effective! So you’re getting max bang for minimum buck.
Make time for YOU
Set your goals for the summer and write them down! Take a few minutes today to journal and set your intentions for the next couple of weeks.
How do you want to feel at the end of it? What changes are you hoping to see? This summer is about WAY more than just working out, losing weight, and eating better than you were before. It’s about learning to show your gorgeous body all the love it deserves and feeling confident from the inside out so you can #liveguiltless.
The Key Details…
Aside from the big-picture stuff, you are going to want to start with your before pics and your gear!!
Go to the journaling section of the LSF app and upload your transformation photos! Babe, it is soo key to keep track of your progress. I know it’s hard to feel “good” taking them, but the scale is an unreliable way to mark your results. Plus, tracking your progress allows you to celebrate all the wins throughout the summer, no matter how big or small. Focus on how you LOOK as you build muscle and lose fat.
See the diff between the two “before” pics below? (They’re both me!) Lighting, clothes, and getting that smiling face in there make a big difference.
I get taking “befores” can be tough and smiling can be hard, but this is the beginning of something major for you, be happy!
Your LSF Workout Kit
Finally, get your gear together now so it’s easy AF to get up and get at it Monday! I have a cute basket I keep in my workout space, so it’s ready whenever I need it, and easy to put away. My go-to’s for my LSF Fit Kit…
- Love Sweat Fitness – the APP!
- Day Drinking Water Bottle
- Resistance Booty Bands
- My fave exercise mat
- Hand weights for when I am looking for the extra intensity (totally optional, but nice to have!)
