#3 - DITCH THE TREADMILL!
Cassey Ho, from one of our favorite workout blogs, Blogilates, suggests going outdoors. "Ditch the treadmill and go for an outdoor run! Do sprints from 2 points of interest, like this stop sign to that park bench, then walk until you reach you next point of interest. This stop and go motion burns way more calories than just a steady jog." But if its still too cold out or if you're too crunched for time - check out Cassey’s easy to do anywhere works outs.
#4 DETOX YOUR HOME:
Before you start your spring cleaning - detox your home of toxic cleaning products suggests lifestyle blogger Elle Penner. "If you're a DIY'er, Pinterest has tons of recipes for safe, homemade alternatives. But if cleaning with vinegar isn't quite your thing, don't worry! There are a number of safe and environmentally-friendly cleaning products out there to choose from."
#5 HELLO COLOR!
It’s time to break out of that black workout clothing rut and wear some color! Christine Bibbo Herr, from NYC Pretty, believes spring is the perfect time to give your workout wardrobe a little upgrade with some color, "Start slowly - experiment with colorful shoes or be bold with patterned pants. New workout clothes = new motivation!"
