Morning Routine + Abs Workout

Happy International Women’s Day! How are you? (I’m pretty good, thanks for asking!)

My morning routine was requested by a few people in my evening routine post, so without further ado, let’s jump right in.

It always depends on the day, but I usually wake up around 7:00 to 7:15. On some days, I have to get up at 6:00, and on weekends I sleep in until 8:00 or 9:00.

After making my bed, the first thing I do is workout. I usually go for a HIIT run on my treadmill, but if I don’t have time, I’ll do a quick workout on my abs. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with my abs, and I made a quick workout that I do every day. It may look easy, but trust me, your heart will be pounding by the end. Be sure to try it out and let me know how it goes for you!

When I’m done with working out, I eat breakfast. I usually have either toast, fruit, or cereal. Sometimes all three, if I’m really hungry. 😉 Breakfast is the foundation of your day, so it’s important to eat something healthy and filling.

I try to fit this in every morning. I write down a to-do list in my planner and check my email & WordPress. This is the calm part of my morning where I can plan for the day and jot down some post ideas.

After showering, brushing my teeth, doing my hair, and getting dressed, I put on some makeup. Most days, I just wear mascara and blush to feel put together. When I’m going out in public, I’ll put on a layer of Erase Paste to hide my blemishes, but heavy makeup like foundation and eyeshadow is reserved for special days. But since I don’t really need makeup, I don’t wear a lot. (Or own a lot, for that matter.)


One more thing before you go–my blog has over 800 followers now! Gosh, that’s pretty cool. Thank you so much!

If you would like to share your morning routine or if you have a morning routine post on your blog, let me know! I hope you have a great rest of the day. Thank you for stopping by.

15 Minute Workout + My Fitness Routine

Heyo, it’s Monday. And you know what that means–a new week, a fresh start, another new beginning before the next Monday and we start all over again.

I love working out. I hate it, too. There’s nothing better (and nothing worse) than sweat trickling down your neck and back, music blaring in your ears, breathing heavily…it’s exhausting. But it feels amazing when you finish! So, in today’s post, I’m going to be showing (technically, telling) you a quick workout that you can do & my fitness routine!

IMG_9636.jpg Here’s my schedule:

  • Monday: HIIT Run & Cardio
  • Tuesday: Skip (I’m gone all day Tuesday)
  • Wednesday: Run
  • Thursday: Run
  • Friday: Run or Walk (It depends on the day.)
  • Saturday: Yoga & Stretch
  • Sunday: Yoga

I’ve talked about Yoga With Adriene a lot (I swear, I should be Adriene’s spokesperson), but have you ever checked out Blogilates? Blogilates is a Youtube channel filled with fun, quick work-out videos. The amazing woman behind the channel, Cassey Ho, has such a fun personality. I try to do a few of her videos each week along with running and yoga.

Why do I workout? Because I love moving, I love the feeling of achievement and pride that I get when I take care of myself and run. Running makes me happy, working out lifts my spirits, it just feels good. By the way, if you workout, I would love to know why you do it. Let me know in the comments!

I have a workout that I usually do on my treadmill, but it can be done while running outdoors as well. I made a ‘lil graphic to show you!

I wish I could do a full hour run without stopping–I’m getting there! Slowly, very slowly, but surely. Since I don’t have a lot of time (usually about fifteen to twenty minutes), I do a few sets of quick sprinting and jogging to get my heart rate up. If I have more time, I’ll do a longer walk at the end to cool down my body–and, of course, I always make time for stretching.

I hope you enjoyed this. I have tons of motivational quotes on my Pinterest board if you feel like taking a peek. I would love to hear how you workout, feel free to share that if you’d like to. Thank you for reading!
