Happy Workout Wednesday everyone! If you’re anything like me, motivation to workout can sometimes be hard to come by. You can pin hundreds of workouts, set the alarm to workout, get the right gear and everything but it’s the motivation that’s the tough part. So to help inspire you to get out and start sweatin’, I’ve rounded up 4 of my favorite and most Inspiring Instagramers.
Amanda, better know on Instagram as @meowmeix is the QUEEN of meal prep. On a weekly basis she is sharing the most amazing photos (and perfectly balanced) photos of her meal prep. She explains what’s in them, how to prep them, where to get the cool containers…everything you could ever need to dive headfirst into meal prep. I see her regularly answering people questions which I find so awesome that she clearly believes in the “share the wealth” logic when it comes to healthy eating and lifestyles.
On her Instagram, you’ll find no end of motivation and reminders that there is always time to make time for a workout. I’d be willing to bet that if she offered a daily phone call to wake you up and get you pumped for an early morning workout, she’d have a list a mile long of people who want to sign up. When I asked Amanda if there was anything she wanted to share she said, “nutrition is the key to reaching your goals faster & feeling good from the inside out.”
Danielle, @d_mccleerey is a straight up beast, and in the world of fitness, I think that’s about the highest compliment you can give someone! She’s a SoulCycle Instructor in Los Angeles and teaches in West Hollywood and Pasadena & is a Lululemon Ambassador. I grew up with Danielle and even when we were young, she was always into something active, but dance was her life. She studied dance, she taught dance, she lived dance! So when I found out that she was training to be a SoulCycle Instructor I wasn’t even a little bit surprised. I mean, even her SoulCycle bio says “she incorporates her dance background into her high energy classes, packed full with heavy beats, dynamic choreography and A LOT of hair flips. Her ride guarantees an intense workout and a sexy dance party.” Danielle will inspire you to get moving when you see her teaching schedule and she is teaching 2, 3 sometimes even 4, high energy cycling classes IN ONE DAY! And if that wasn’t enough, she even lives the fit life on her days off by going for runs and hikes with her dog Maggie! Lastly, Danielle is vegan and makes it look simultaneously delicious, nutritious and easy…and she has the fiercest hair.
Meg @megmo7 is a self proclaimed pint-sized powerhouse according to her Instagram bio and boy, is that true! From the moment I stumbled across her account, I knew that this was someone that was going to inspire me to get moving and embrace my body. One of my favorite things about Meg is that she isn’t afraid to be part of the Girls Who Lift movement – she is always sharing photos and videos of herself lifting weights and being a girl with major muscles (but not the massive, manly kind almost every girl is convinced she’ll get if she lifts weights!) She earns my respect and the respect of all of her followers when she shares her concerns, trip ups, fears, acknowledges that she’s still figuring out this thing we call life. In a world where everyone is “who they want the world to see them as”, I cannot thank people like Meg enough for shining a light that even though you can life the fit life, some days just suck and everyone has insecurities. Rock on Meg, you inspire me and many others on a daily basis!
Use caution when looking at Kim’s, @pbeechie, Instagram because you will inevitably start drooling. She is ultimate creator of foods that fall into the “it looks like something you so should not be eating but it’s actually crazy healthy” category and is always sharing the recipes! Not only has Kim shared her 65lb weight loss and fitness journey, she’s also shared her struggles. Kim will sometimes take a moment from posting yummy recipes to she too fell into the trap of weight loss and developed an eating disorder called orthorexia. She takes these moments to shine a light on eating disorders and reminding her nearly 80k followers that it’s ok to ask for help. I will fully admit that her openness and honesty about her struggles with self image, health, fitness and everything in between have brought me to tears. PS: The photos below fall into that shouldn’t be healthy but it actually is category 😉
