Most of us enjoy scrolling through Instagram in our spare time, and you can find a lot of high quality fitness inspiration if you are following the right accounts. Health and Fitness Expert and Women’s Weight Loss Coach Stephanie Mansour appeared on the Jam to discuss how best to use social media for inspiration and a few celebrities she recommends you give a follow!
Instagram can be a great place to learn new recipes. I’m sure you’ve seen your share of incredible looking meals while scrolling through! Two of my favorites to follow for foodie inspiration: @chrissyteigen and @kristincavallari.
Chrissy Teigen is on her 2nd cookbook, Cravings: Hungry for More , and what I like about this book is it’s healthy, but not super healthy. It really is about making and enjoying the foods that you crave, lightened up a little, but still with all the delicious! I am always reminding my private weight loss clients that a key to success is: don’t deprive yourself. If you crave something figure out a way to eat it while still moving towards your fitness goals.
Kristin’s cookbook is called, True Roots: A Mindful Kitchen with More Than 100 Recipes Free of Gluten, Dairy, and Refined Sugar and it is, as the title suggests, pretty dang healthy! If your New Year’s Resolutions include ditching sugar or going gluten or dairy free this could be a really wise investment for you!
If you’re looking for healthy recipes to try this year and would appreciate some of the guesswork taken out, check out my 7-Day Easy Meal Plan + Recipe Book. It features anti-inflammatory recipes and even has a shopping list for your convenience.
Here are a few of my favorite big name celebrities to follow for fitness inspiration:
- Octavia Spencer– she posts a lot of videos of the exercise circuits she completes with her personal trainer, and even works out while on set! Talk about inspiring, right? If she can do it, you can do it! You can follow her @octaviaspencer.
- Jessica Biel– What I love about the videos Jessica posts is that she tries really challenging stuff and celebrates after she nails an exercise she’s been building up to. It’s so important to both challenge yourself while celebrating your achievements and strength gains along the way! Follow her for more @jessicabiel.
- The Rock– He is a powerhouse, am I right?? What’s really inspiring about watching his workout videos is he’s very into high intensity interval training which is one of the most popular fitness trends of 2019 and has been for several years past! With HIIT you really are pushing yourself to your limits, going for that last rep, or your last breath, super challenging stuff! His epic IG is @TheRock.
- Hugh Jackman– Most celebs have personal trainers, and what I like about Hugh’s Instagram is he actually shows himself working out with his trainer! If you’re ready to take your fitness to the next level this year, consider hiring a personal trainer to help you succeed. I love being a private weight loss coach and working with women to achieve their health goals. Follow @TheHughJackman to see more of his impressive workout sessions.
