It’s Motivation Monday! I was talking to a friend yesterday about health goals. She’s fallen out of her fitness routine and struggling to find the right balance that motivates her. Can you relate? I, too, have weeks that I’ve overbooked myself and find it difficult to fit it all in. That’s when I fall back on apps like FitStar that corresponds with my FitBit Charge 2, or yoga apps like Down Dog. Both of these free apps offer an assortment of fitness routines from beginner to higher skill levels. Premier Protein has been a steady weapon for my health goals too. Their line of protein bars, shakes, and their newest product – Premier Protein Clear are perfect ways to keep a well-balanced diet.
