7 Lazy Fit Girl Fitness Hacks To Stay Motivated And Get Fit
1. Write Down Your Goals
Just ask yourself one simple question: Why are you doing this?!
Is it because you want to look good?
Or is it because you want to finally take that step towards a healthier self?
Why is this journey so important to you?
However, make sure to focus on two separate things:
- Your short term goals
- Your long term goals
While the short term goals may be as simple as ‘I want to fit in my dress for this wedding I’m on’, or ‘I want to look good at the beach this summer’, the long term goals are usually way deeper.
When it comes to long term goals, I’ll often write down:
- I want to stop giving up, and stay determined to what’s important to me,
- I want to be able to look back one day and say I enjoyed my life and made the most out of it,
- I want to start feeling healthy and comfortable in my own body.
I write these goals down in my Fit Babe Fitness Planner to remind myself each day how important my goals are to me.
This helps me maintain my healthy lifestyle day after day, no matter how lazy I am.
2. Start Eating Healthy
You may be too lazy to work out, but you can’t be too lazy to eat healthy.
When girls ask me what is the one single thing they can do to both lose weight, get fit and get healthy, I always say – just start eating healthy.
When it comes to fitness and weight loss in general, nutrition is everything.
It’s 80% nutrition – 20% workout, which means that you can achieve almost any goal if you just eat right.
So, start cleaning your diet from sugars and highly processed foods, and start adding more fresh, healthy and raw ingredients into your diet.

3. Make It A Part Of Who You Are
Making fitness a part of your social life, and a part of who you are will definitely make you feel like you are not even making efforts.
Convince a friend or two to work out with you, start following a bunch of fitness girls on Instagram, read their stories, post your healthy meals on social media, and you’re halfway there.
Making fitness and health a way of life and a part of my identity was a crucial step for me.
Through this blog, I’ve managed to get in touch with so many fit girls, hear their stories, and help them on their journey.
4. Set A Morning Routine
Mornings are so important when it comes to almost everything, including fitness and weight loss.
They will often set the tone for the day, and determine how the whole day will look like.
If you start your day healthy, you are more likely to keep it up that way for the rest of it.
So, get yourself a simple morning routine you can manage to follow, in order to always star the day on the healthier note.
Here’s my morning routine – check it out and decide what works for you…
5. Reward Yourself
Rewarding yourself is one of the things that are necessary when it comes to fitness.
I know they say you shouldn’t reward yourself with food, but as long as it’s healthy food and as long as it works for you, there’s no harm.
I usually reward myself with my favorite healthy meal, which is a healthy burger with 2 patties (this is happening only once a month)
Also, it doesn’t always have to be food.
You can reward yourself with some cute fitness outfits to boost your motivation a bit, and make working out more fun.
Buy yourself a pair of leggings, a new sports bra, or a yoga mat.
This always works at least for me, because when I look like somebody who works out, I feel and act like somebody who works out.
Workout clothing puts me in the zone for sure.
If you go to the gym or work out at home in your regular clothes, you are much less likely to take your training seriously.
6. Always Have A Plan B
There are days when we just can’t make it to the gym, or can’t seem to find the time to complete a full workout from home.
Don’t worry, this is totally normal.
Just make sure to have a plan B, for a short workout or cardio blast that takes only 10 minutes, and do that instead.
Here’s my favorite go-to workout I usually do on busy days:
It’s only 10 minutes, so NO EXCUSES! :)
You have to know that it’s not about the time you spend working out, it’s about how you spend it, but we’ll get to that in a second.
7. Start Working Out From Home
As I was getting into fitness, I started realizing that spending hours at the gym is just not an option for me.
Sometimes I was too tired to go to the gym, and other times I just didn’t have the time to travel to the gym for 30 minutes, do an hour and a half training and get home.
It took almost 3 hours each day, and I knew that it wasn’t a plan I could keep up with.
So, I decided to move my workouts at home, and somehow start a workout program that will last shorter, so that I could keep it up 5 times a week.
It was when I started doing HIIT when I realized that working out isn’t about the time you spend – it’s about how you spend it.
HIIT is all about fast and explosive workouts, with intense intervals and hard work with almost no rest, but the training sessions were 30-40 minutes.
I was skeptical at first because I wasn’t used to it, but after trying it out I realized that I cut my workout time in half to get even better results.
This was a whole new chapter in my fitness journey, and I got stuck on it ever since.
Realizing that I don’t have to leave my home, and I don’t have to spend hours to get fit was a breakthrough for me.
Since then, I designed my own at-home workout program, and here it is:
You have to try it out!
Now It’s Your Turn!
If you are a lazy fit girl, just stop and think about it:
Do you want it bad enough? Are you willing to do what it takes?
Of course, you are!
Try at least a few of these 7 hacks and you’ll get fit in no time!
Till next time, babe!
