I promise you it’s not a conspiracy, or some ploy to make you suffer. Working out is one of the greatest things I’ve ever done for myself. I grew up probably one of the least athletically inclined people ever. Absolutely hated physical activity until I was 23 years old when I first started my fitness journey. I, too, always thought people who worked out everyday were crazy and liars. No way that felt GOOD. And initially, during workouts I hated it (sometimes I still do), but that feeling AFTER 🙌🏽✨☺️ That feeling of accomplishment, pride, strength, that✨ #GLOW✨ There is no other feeling. Don’t just do it for the look, do it for the feel! #endorphins

⭐️EXERCISE ACTS AS A PAINKILLER⭐️by @healyourpain_
💊”When in pain, pop an advil." That is what we usually tell someone who has sustained an injury or hurt themselves. This post is NOT to discredit pain medication; they have their place and can be quite effective in ceasing pain in a highly sensitive individual. In fact, they are NEEDED for many individuals. That being said, our brain produces powerful pain killers that can significantly reduce our pain. The reason most people do not know this is because health professional tell them to NOT EXERCISE and the person usually believes that if there is a little pain during exercise, this is BAD for them.
💊Think of exercise like a medication that you take: If the dose is too much, you will experience strong symptoms (more pain). If the dose is too little, you will experience no effect (zero relief). If the dose is the right amount, you will experience pain relief!
💊The chemicals act by reducing the intensity of pain by interacting with different types of opioids receptors in the body. This leads to a REDUCTION in pain
😊The best news here is that even mild exercise can produce this effect in someone who has sustained an acute injury. If you are unsure of where to start and how to progress, a good therapist or personal trainer can be of good guidance. Tag someone with chronic pain!
‼️This is not medical advice, see a healthcare professional for your pain‼️
If you want to find the real competition, just look in the mirror. All you have to do is outbeat the person in the mirror everyday to reach your success. .
That person staring back at you will try to tell you from time to time that you’re too tired and can’t go on, that you’re strong enough and don’t need to push harder, and that you’re not worthy enough to experience success. Tell that voice to shove it, work hard, and don’t expect anything in return so that you surpass all of your expectations.

Today started off more like a Monday.. long to-do list, locked myself out of the house and had to drive all over town to get a key 🔑, and a list of other things that could’ve driven me insane...BUT I’m thankful I got my workout in first thing because #endorphins (swipe 👉🏻to see some moves). Today also wraps up DAY 5 of our program. These 20 minute workouts have been a welcomed challenge and I’m SO excited to see what the next few weeks bring (already feeling lean AF). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m also roping Aaron into doing a Q & A either tonight or tomorrow (he doesn’t know yet 😉) to answer questions about the workouts, healthy eating, the program in general or anything else! So if you want to chat with the Taylor’s either leave a question here 👇🏻 or go to my stories and you’ll see where to ask your questions. Ask away! 😎 Oh...Happy f*ckin’ Friday ✌🏻 #LinkInBioToJoinMe
I’ve got a million billion reasons to get moving. In times of high stress (usually accompanied with high anxiety) exercise can truly be a godsend. My mind can wander for a bit and things can recalibrate. Grateful for this tool and the many others. Tag 🏷 someone who can relate 👯♀️. -

"Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves."
― James Matthew Barrie
I was feeling blah and not wanting to work out this morning. But I did it anyway. I pushed through and was rewarded with this glorious sunshine! Afterwards I felt energized and ready to get in with the rest of my day.
Sometimes, you just have to push through, even when motivation or energy feel low.
After my workout, a shower and getting (somewhat) ready I tackled a project that has been sitting and staring at me for years. It felt so good to be productive!

Your pet loves to spend time outdoors but in winter even the furriest dog can get cold. Ears, paws and tails are all susceptible to frostbite. Take your dog out frequently for walks, exercise and play but when the temperature drops, don’t leave him outdoors for long periods of time. You should start with short sessions outside and slowly increase so your dog has the appropriate time to adjust. If your dog has furry feet, trim the hair that grows between his pads to prevent ice buildup. Winter salt on city sidewalks can also burn your dog’s pads and is toxic, so after walks around the neighborhood, rinse or wipe your dog’s paws to remove any salt. In case that your dog seems cold, cover him with a towel or blanket. You can also use a blow dryer on a low setting, but don’t heat his paw pads, as they could burn. Instead, heat up some rice in a sock (place against your wrist to ensure it’s not too hot). About hydration, your dog, as you, should drink plenty of water before and after walks. Eating snow is not a good option, as snow can hide waste and bacteria, it lowers your dog’s core temperature, and it’s usually salty due to all of the ice melt that is spread around streets.

Regular #exercise with your pet is good for both your #health and your dog's health and can be great #fun . Benefits include improved cardiovascular #fitness , lower blood pressure, stronger muscles and bones. Dog #walking can also lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, dampen other physiological stress responses and improves community spirit.
A regular #walk is vitally important for your pet's health too. Obesity in pets is associated with a number of medical complaints including osteoarthritis, cardiovascular disease, liver disease and insulin resistance. Additionally, quality walks with your four-legged pal can reduce feelings of loneliness for you and your dog.
If you are new pet-parent, remember to keep your #dog leashed and always have bags handy for those potty breaks. Also, avoid walking in the extreme cold or heat and make sure you have fresh water.

ᴠ ғᴏʀ ᴠɪᴄᴛᴏʀʏ - in the killer #abs department.
The stability #ball is a piece of exercise equipment used for #strength #training, improving #balance, #posture, coordination and stability. This effective tool can make any exercise more challenging and provide many benefits when used regularly, as the soft, inherently unstable surface of the ball activates the entire #core structure more deeply.
The exercise ball is also an exercise #treatment option for back #pain sufferers and is designed to help prevent or minimize further episodes of #lowback pain as part of a #rehabilitation program. It tones the core #body #muscles and help to stabilize the #spine and that’s exactly why physical therapists and chiropractors started using the ball for #therapy .
The size of exercise balls varies. A good rule of thumb for finding the correct ball's size is to sit on the ball and make sure the hips and knees are at right angles with the floor.
