Belles of the Beach: Get Fit Feb

Hey everyone!

To continue with the Belles of the Beach series, I wanted to share with you my fitness and workout plan for the month of February. 


I customized my calendar to include rest days and the types of workouts I like.

For instance, I love taking advantage of the gym classes on campus. Mondays are always kickboxing days, and Tuesdays and Thursdays are strictly for zumba!

Because Wednesdays are always incredibly busy for me, I only have about 30 minutes to dedicate to working out. These are the days that I focus on "abs, arms, legs." For this workout, I turn to youtube! I am a huge fan of the 80s videos, "8 minute abs" and "8 minute arms." These workouts are very time-efficient (but harrrd!) and I can do them in the morning before I hop in the shower. I have a pair of three-pound weights that I use for these exercises. 

Fill out your own!

*Remember to add in rest days, which are extremely important. Your body needs to rest every once in a while - it also gives your muscles time to re-build
*Switch it up! Remember to combine cardio with weight training so you maximize your time
*Don't be too hard on yourself! Be proud of the workouts that you do finish, and don't get upset if you don't have time to complete your workout that day

Happy Monday, loves!
And happy almost Valentine's Day! What's everyone doing for the big day? :)

Love, Cait

  1. Love this, Cait! I'm glad you added a little extra heart for Valentine's Day. Although, I think I'm going to spend my night on a spin bike since M is still in Boston :)

  2. Love that you posted this! I love taking advantage of gym classes too (I really love zumba and a class we have here called "Super Abs"...yes, its as hard as it sounds) and I have a semester schedule posted above my desk, but its definitely a good idea to make your own customized one. About to fill mine out right now!

  3. I love this! You have a lot of great workouts! I need to start doing something like this, because sometimes I find I go to the gym and I just draw a blank on what to do. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Happy Monday!! I do a lot of Denise Austin, and fit in a lot of short work-outs. I don't have the attention span for long work-outs. I just need to get more focused and budget some more time. Drinking water is a must, too and when I don't..I get so bloated. Like right now.
