Fitness and Pinterest
If you've joined the Pinterest revolution, you understand how important those Saturday morning pinning sessions can be for your wardrobe, DIY projects and your dream wedding planning (that you will forever hide from your novio). If you haven't discovered the wondrous collection of organized pinning, I highly recommend that you do! Pinterest is a great place to organize and manage your health and exercise plan. Where else could you collect all your favorite fitness articles, healthy recipes and inspirational motivation?
Pinterest- The basics
Pinterest is a unique "invite only" social media site that acts as a virtual cork board for anything you find on the internet. Any article, website or item can be made into a pin as long as there is a photo accompanying it. This site is ideal for online organization and perfect for visual learners.
Get motivated by pinning what it is that inspires you. Is it a picture of the new bikini you ordered a size smaller? Your favorite athlete? The wedding dress you're trying to squeeze into? Being able to visualize your goals can help keep you on track and motivated through your next workout.
Organize your wishlist of workout gear you'd love to own by pinning them to a products board. Set small fitness goals and when you reach them, reward yourself! It's perfectly justified because you're investing in your health. You deserve it, Chica!
Nothing is better than revamping that old workout routine with some new moves that work different muscles. There are thousands of pins that offer unique physical activity plans and programs for free. Try something new! When you've hit a plateau in your workout, you need to change it up in order to see results.
Remember that old dusty health cookbook you bought in 2007? Times have changed and the new cookbook collective has emerged online in the most convenient form. Pin recipes and meal plans from any website into your board and start slimming! Eventually, you'll be organized enough to plan out your week and following your meal plan will be a cinch.
When you request an invite from Pinterest, it can take around 2 weeks to a month to receive an invite, but I have a few left! Comment with your e-mail and I'll send one over to you! And if you need a little Latina health inspiration for your boards, check out The Healthy Latina pins.
