How do you get extra motivation to workout? For me, looking at the constant stream of fitness Instagram accounts I follow is both great and awful. Sometimes when scrolling through my feed, it’s hard not to just think, “it’s impossible to look like them,” and skip my workout and eat cookies instead.

As I said in an earlier blog post, my mom and I took several weeks to help get our endurance back to where it was before taking the summer off.

I’ve been to different yoga classes offered at gyms, but they all paled in comparison to taking a class at an actual established yoga studio.
