*De-clutter – Keep distractions down to a minimum. If you don’t have a dedicated space for working out, take 5 minutes prior to starting your workout to declutter your area so you’re mind won’t be distracted on cleaning while you’re trying to get your sweat on! (*Bonus points – while you’re clearing the clutter, try to use this time as a warm up and stretch and reach extra while cleaning!)
*Water – 8 glasses a day! (*Minimum!) It may sound like a simple task but many of us don’t get enough! Keep water close at hand during tough workouts to make sure you’re not walking back and forth to the kitchen for a drink.
*Healthy snacks – You may want to refuel before or after your workout and it’s important to have healthy snacks easy to reach for when you need them. Plan ahead to make healthy choices and your waistline will show your rewards!
