Thinking about Valentine's Day? 3 ways to feel fit ahead of date night

By early February, many of us tend to slow down a bit on our resolutions and fitness goals. After the initial excitement of the new year wears off, we may lose sight of what we’re working toward. What we all need is a boost in motivation and a reminder to stay healthy.

How about feeling beautiful and fit for Valentine’s Day!? Whether you’re planning an evening with a special someone or a girls night, you deserve to feel beautiful!

Tone It Up

Today, we’re giving you three easy ways to feel and look your best.

Complete two HIIT workouts a week

We’ve talked about the importance of HIIT workouts— or High Intensity Interval Training before.

This is one of the best ways to tone up and blast fat in the shortest amount of time. Incorporating at least two HIIT routines into your weekly fitness plan will ensure you turn heads come Valentine’s Day!

Make your skin glow

Now’s the time to prep your skin to look amazing! The easiest way to do this?

Drink plenty of fresh water daily — we recommend having half your body weight in ounces throughout the day (that’s 75 ounces if you weigh 150 pounds) — and nixing artificial foods like fake sweeteners and any ingredients you can’t pronounce. You’ll have so much more energy, too!

We love to prep our skin with some extra TLC when we have a big event coming up. Using a nourishing face treatment once a week will help dramatically improve tone and texture.

Keep you dinners lean, clean and green

One of the best ways to guarantee you stay on track towards a healthier, more vibrant you is to make most of your dinners Tone It Up Nutrition Plan approved.

For the most part we want you to focus on including plenty of fresh, beautifying greens like kale, Brussels sprouts, spinach and arugula alongside your favorite lean protein for dinner.
