The best beginner workout and playlist + 3 great tanks to look cute doing it

The inspiration for this post came from the fact that I am incredibly out of a shape. I’m the type of person who walks up the stairs and then attempts to stifle how truly out of breath it made me. I hate working out. No, it’s not because I’m necessary lazy, I just don’t have time for it. I’d rather go to the dentist than the gym and there are plenty of other activities I’d prefer to fill my day with.

However, working out is incredibly important. I genuinely wished I had a liking for it because I am a health conscious person and I want my body to be in the best shape possible. That being said, I searched high and low for a workout that fit my schedule, my dislike for the gym, and also didn’t include running…. and this is what I discovered.

 

Ladies and Gentleman…. THE JUMPROPE!

 

*get this super cute pink one here on Amazon for 7.99$

 

You probably remember during recess in grade school they would hand out jump ropes. Well, let me just tell you this, jumping rope is not as easy as it was in elementary school. The first day I picked up a jump rope, I literally thought ‘I cannot believe I used to do this for fun’. However, it is a truly amazing workout. I can crawl out of bed and start working out. No gyms, no running, quick, and effective.

Jumping rope for ten minutes is equivalent to running an 8-minute mile. 

So how do you make it fun? Time yourself with music. I started with one song (because trust me, it will be the longest three minutes of your life), and moved up to two. Whoooo. Big whoop. You can jump rope for two songs… I know that is what you’re thinking but just try it. It’s HARD.

12 little life lessons from a twenty-one-year-old fashion blogger

1- Talking bad about someone you like will ALWAYS come back to get you, rather it’s the next day or the next year.

2- When you stress about life and give yourself too many goals, you are forgetting to live and setting yourself up for failure.

3- Never forget the little things because those are the most important.

4- Life’s a bitch so why make it harder for others, be nice always.

5- Never go to sleep still angry. Resolve the problem/s beforehand. You’ll even sleep better.

6- Don’t believe a secondhand source, go to the primary one before making assumptions and acting.

7- Say what’s on your mind when an issue or a possible issue arises, don’t keep it in and explode with anger later on.

8- Most people have good intentions but appeasing themselves is their number one goal.

9- Travel often and get away to clear your mind.

10- Don’t take even the slightest things for granted because you truly don’t know what you have until it’s gone.

11- Be grateful for everything.

12- Aim to help, please, and love but remember that you can’t always win and not everyone is going to like you either way.

These life lessons are my favorite, I hope you find them as beneficial as I have.
