2 minutes in a power pose will increase testosterone and decrease cortisol to help you power up and give you strength. Try it before your next big meeting or interview.

1. Set Your Clothes Out The Night Before.
If you do this the night before, you’re basically telling your brain “Okay, I can’t just set these workout clothes out for nothing, guess I gotta put them on.” Another idea is to wear them for pajamas, but I feel like that would be incredibly uncomfortable. Also don’t forget to fill up your wa
2. Think About How You’re Going To Wake Up Early And Kick Ass.
This sounds like it won’t work, but I’m telling you, if you say it will happen, it will. 
3. Make It Easy On Yourself.
Don’t be to hard on yourself. In the mornings, before I workout I’ll do yoga to stretch and get me energized. I find it easier that way, so I always make that a legitimate warm-up routine. After that, I’ll get out the door, or workout from home.
4.  Play Uplifting Music In The Morning. 
Have a getting-ready music playlist set to help you get through being tired and groggy.
5.  Don’t Force Yourself.
If you can’t get up every day of the year at 6 in the morning and do a 5k run, it’s okay! I suggest waking up at around 10-11 AM the first week, and wake up about a hour or 2 earlier every week!
good luck. -Kaleigh

Obsessively trying to eat strictly healthy food and micromanaging all your meals is NOT healthy. Being absolutely terrified of certain foods because they are not 100% “clean” is NOT healthy. Feeling bad for enjoying food, regardless of its nutritional value, is NOT HEALTHY.

Unless you just want a little treat :) This is great info though!

You’re likely experiencing "shin splints" — these happen when the muscle pulls away from the bone in a funny way. They commonly occur while running downhill or while performing other strenuous activities that exert extensive pressure on the shin.

 How to prevent them:

  • Do some simple shin stretches before you go out for your run (and after. The after-stretch is JUST as important as the before-stretch!)
  • Jog sideways — It may look silly, but it changes the direction of the pressure, so it helps.
  • Ice your shins 20 minutes before you leave your house — It sounds silly, but the coldness loosens the muscle, which is why it works. 
  • Do not jog with excessively long strides as those are known to increase shin pain.
  • Jog on softer surfaces (i.e. run on the grass instead of the sidewalk whenever possible).

Additionally, the type of shoe plays a major role in the acquisition of shin splints. You need shoes with extra cushioning and good shock absorbence. The best shoes to prevent shin splints are New Balance. Saucony are also good. If you go to your local sports store and ask specifically for shoes that help with preventing shin splints, or for shoes that offer a lot of cushioning, your sales representative should be able to point you in the right direction.

You could also purchase a shoe accessory called a halo-heel. It’s a cushion you put into your shoe at the heel and it helps add extra cushioning.
