It's Fitspo Friday again! I hope you've had a great week and are finding some fun new ways to fit your workouts in this summer. Do you have any goals for the weekend and upcoming week ahead? I'm on vacation, and my goal has been to do something active and FUN each day of my vacation. Today was spent touring Savannah and taking pictures, so I burned all of my calories as a tourist.
FITSPO: Short for Fitness-Based Inspiration. Images of active, strong, and fit women that promote proper exercise and diet.
I post this definition every week as a reminder that this is a place for positive + healthy inspiration. I try not to promote images that are unrealistic or that would require surgery to achieve. Fitness is all about consistently eating right, working out, and — most importantly — feeling and being healthy!
The images below are from Pinterest and Instagram. I’ll post the image sources at the bottom of the page in case you want to follow any of these ladies. I don’t own the copyright to the images, I’m just very inspired by how fit these girls are! Here’s this week’s inspiration:

My favorite workout this week is is the jack knife, which targets the lower ab area. Lie on a workout mat facing upwards with your legs extended, feet together, and your arms extended above your head. Inhale, then slowly exhale as you squeeze your abs and raise your right arm towards your left leg (touching hand to foot). Inhale and slowly lower to starting position. Repeat 12 to 15 times, and then switch sides for 12 to 15 more reps. To increase the difficulty level, add ankle weights.
