Get Spring Break Ready

Making plans for spring break? Going to a tropical island? Thinking how the hell you're going to even try to get into a bikini from all of the food you ate this winter? Same. I've come up with a fuel proof plan that you can follow every week until spring break to get you ready to take on the islands.

3 Days a Week 
Doing cardio three days a week, at least, will get you toned and burn all of the calories you eat everyday. If you sign up for a spin class, if gives you an excuse to go to the gym. Think of it as going to a college class, except you're actually learning how to become more fit! Having someone teach you and guide you through the class makes it much easier than just going on the treadmill at your own pace and thinking that you're getting the exercise you need.

2 Days a Week
Body Pump/Weights
I know, someone says weights, you cringe. Body pump is a great way of getting every single part of your body toned. By using weights on a bar, you get your arms, abs, legs, and butt all at the same time! Yes, the first class will make you want to cry, and yes, the morning after you won't be able to walk. BUT, if you go a couple times you will get right into the groove AND they play awesome music so it (kinda sorta) feels like your dancing! 

Extra Fun Stuff 

 Yoga, is a great way to relax and de-stress. I have learned this through many weeks of finals and yoga totally helped me out through the way. There are all types of yoga too! Candlelight (most relaxing) to Power (most rewarding) yoga. If you don't feel like doing full cardio but also don't want to feel like you didn't go to the gym, yoga is a great in between workout.

Zumba is loads of fun. Dancing the entire class, I mean, yes? I love to dance at parties so this is a great class for me. It's great cardio and the class goes by super fast because you're having so much fun. It is a great way to sweat but not even realize. Definitely give it a try if you haven't yet!
