My own motivation

If you’re waiting for me to write a post where I tell you all my fitness secrets, my exercise routines and the incredibly yummy green smoothie I have after lifting weights, I’m sorry to disappoint you and tell you that I’ll probably never be able to create such content.

Because if I had the opportunity to choose a superpower, that would be to tone my thighs while staying at my favorite place in the whole world: my sofa. I’m not, and as you can clearly see in these photos, a fitness expert and I’m especially not the kind of person who goes to the gym every single day, and to be honest, it’s actually not my favorite part of the day.

However, I always try to find new motivations to get up early at 7am, hit the gym and try new work outs. It ain’t easy, but the key is to find something that you like and do it because you want to, not because you have to. So, instead of lying to you guys with a story on how I got the body I always wanted in three easy steps, I come to you with this to suggest you the whole truth: constancy, good food, walking as much as you can and to accept that nobody is perfect. Yeah, not even that hot girl with the steel ass that exists at every gym.

Si están esperando un post en donde les cuente todos mis secretos de fitness, mis rutinas de ejercicio y del súper smoothie verde que bebo después de levantar pesas, siento decepcionarles y decirles que creo que nunca voy a poder crear ese tipo de contenido.

Y es que si pudiese elegir un súper poder sería el tonificar mientras veo Netflix desde mi lugar favorito en todo el mundo: mi sofá. No soy, y como estas fotos lo ejemplifican perfectamente, experta en fitness ni mucho menos soy alguien que va al gimnasio todos los días, para ser honesta, no es mi parte favorita del día.

Sin embargo, siempre intento encontrar motivación nueva para levantarme a las 7am y llegar al gimnasio dispuesta a probar cosas nuevas, como las que propondrá Cuponation en su Virtual Gym. No es fácil, pero la clave está en encontrar algo que te guste y hacerlo porque quieres, no porque tienes que. Así que, en lugar de mentirles y decirles cómo conseguí tonificar en tres simples pasos, vengo con este post a aconsejarles que todo se trata de: constancia, buena alimentación, caminar tanto como puedan y aceptar que nadie es perfecto. Así es, ni siquiera esa súper chica con trasero de acero que existe en cada gimnasio.

And of course, it also helps to your motivation if you’ve got a killer work out set.

This post is a result of Cuponation’s Virtual Gym sponsoring a couple of social media posts with Nike, but this blog post is a personal initiative. Let’s say it’s partially sponsored. All opinions and creative content are my own.

  3. Me ha gustado mucho tu post : ) Me siento muy identificada: yo tampoco considero ir al gimnasio o entrenar como mi parte favorita del día, aunque reconozco que uno debe hacer el esfuerzo y tener un estilo de vida activo para estar sano. Por suerte hay alternativas, no todo tiene que ser gimnasio o salir a correr, por suerte bailar salsa también quema muchas calorías! ; )
    Muchos saludos,

  4. This workout set is so cute and seriously motivating. We love it almost enough to want to wake up earlier than we already do here at HQ! Thanks for sharing,

  5. Wow!! You look super fit and your body looks amazing. And yeah, we need to keep our health nowadays because illness could come to.us whenever.

  6. Las fotos me encantan… el outfit también se ve súper cómodo y muy chic. Me encanta que eres sincera en tu post. tener el hábito de ejercitarse cada día es difícil y definitivamente lo tienes qua hacer por que te gusta, como todo en la vida.
    Besitos!!!

  7. I love the pictures ! It’s been difficult for me to go to the gym recently (and more generally it started about two years ago), but what you’re saying is true, and I have to find motivation before going !

  8. Very cool post! And it’s so true: If you find something you like, you’ll be much more likely to stick to it than when you’re pressuring yourself!

  9. Loved this!!!! I for one hate exercising but want to also stay healthy and fit at the same time. I will be taking your advise on board and see how I go <3 thanks so much for the motivation boost that I desperately needed – it's also getting super cold in Oz (Canberra) so exercising is generally the last thing on my mind other than being snugged under a blanket <3 Thank you.

    • I’m the same, Michaela! When it’s cold I don’t like exercising at all! I recommend you to exercise indoors, whether you go to the gym or stay at home and do some pilates or a small work out, it’s hard to step out of the blanket but after exercising you will feel all warm (and healthy) inside :3

      Thank you for commenting!!

    Great advices! Nobody is perfect, and that’s perfectly fine. Of course being healthy is important, but we don’t need to go overboard to fix all of our “flaws”. Btw, you look beautiful as always! :)

  11. I love how honest you are about your work out routine. I’m an all or nothing type of gal when it comes to working out and right now I’m at the nothing stage of life. I need to go work out again because honestly it makes me feel like a badass! x
