Drop it like a squat

I've mentioned in past posts that I use to be a level 9 gymnast. I've been out of gymnastics for a year now and have really missed working out. It's been hard to find time to go the the gym as I've been busy with college classes and two part time jobs. I've been feeling very motived lately though and have decided to take part in the Lorna Jane squat challenge. It's a workout I can do everyday in my dorm room and only takes a couple of minutes to complete. I've even got my roommate doing it with me, so that we can motivate each other. So far I've completed two days and I'm already sore. Uhg... At least I know it's working! And I hope by the time I'm done, I'll have a toned butt and legs!

 I heard about this challenge from an instagram account I recently came across called SARAHALICETIU. She has so many pictures of inspiring quotes, delicious looking healthy foods and fitness. I then found out she has a blog called Adorn Beauty! It's all about beauty, healthy food recipes and fitness. You all should check it out, it's so inspiring! (And let her know I sent you!)

Eating healthier and working out is so good for the body. It will make you happier and make you feel healthier and all around better about yourself. So I've decided that I want to go on a health/fitness "journey." (Yes, I'm also on a happiness journey. They both go hand in hand.) My goal throughout this is to get a toned body and put good foods into my body like fruits and veggies instead of bad processed foods like pie and pizza. My goal is also to drink more water. As I try to live a healthier lifestyle, I'll keep you all updated with posts. I'd also love if you guys could join along with me so that we can all motivate each other! I've posted the squat challenge bellow so that we can do this together. Use the hashtag #fitpanda and #adornbeauty on instagram, to share your progress, so we can, as adorn beauty said: "keep each other accountable." Doing this together will make working out and eating healthier a lot easier. We can even swap recipes and fitness routines with each other. I'm excited to see how this goes and my goal is to have a bikini ready body by summer!

Print this workout out and hang it somewhere where you will see it and be reminded to do it everyday!
Even set is as your lock screen photo on your phone if you need to.
