Fit Tip Tuesday #1: Do What You LOVE!

Fit Tip Tuesday Button

Like I said in my previous post, I'm starting to link up with Fit Tip Tuesday!

Today's tip: DO WHAT YOU LOVE!

While I am going to swing this obviously toward fitness, it is actually a tip that applies to ANYTHING you do in life. You will never be happy with what steps you take and what activities you choose to participate in if you do not love them.

For instance, I LOVE Zumba. I have adored it ever since my first Zumba class. Right now I'm taking a 2 day a week Zumba class, and plan to up it to 3 days a week this Spring/Summer. Also, the more I work on Strength Training, the more I fall in love with it too. 

A few weeks ago, I posted on here that I was going to do "Run This Year" and start tracking my running to accumulate to a goal over the year. Problem: I hate running. So anyone who knows me probably read that post and went "yea right, no way is she doing this." As you may or may not have predicted, I totally forgot all about that goal until now, and am gracefully giving it up.

On that same thought, it is OKAY to give up something that you don't love. If you try something new and you just aren't into it, even though you really thought you would be, that's OK! The most important thing is to find what works for YOU! We are all different, and that's why there are always a ton of ways to do anything. Fitness is SO important, and it's something you will be striving for the rest of your life. Do you want to rope yourself into something you hate or make it fun?

It doesn't just apply to working out. It applies to everything. Eat what you like, do what you like, have fun with what you do. 

As for me: I'm going to keep up with my Zumba and my weights, pick up FUN races occasionally, and continue to make healthy choices that don't bring me down. You'll never stick to anything you hate.

Now go, be healthy, and make choices that you love! Go check out The Skinny On Health and all of my other fellow bloggers who are joining in on Fit Tip Tuesday!


  1. I'm all about doing what you LOVE! Especially in terms of exercise. Whenever I try to do a bootcamp type class, I think "why did I just spend the last hour getting yelled at?!" and then I remember that there are a million other workouts that I actually LOVE, so why not just stick to those. Thanks for the tip! :)



    1. Exactly! If I decided to go run every day, I'd probably lose sight of my motivation pretty quickly. Zumba, however, is something I look forward to all day.
