My 4 Best Kept Fitness Secrets

It’s no secret that I enjoy a challenging workout. I mean, part of the name of this website is “Getting Fit.” BUT, there are a few fitness secrets that I don’t often talk about…sometimes it’s because I just don’t want to…and one is rather embarrassing.

This week, I’ve decided that I’m done keeping secrets, so I’m going to come clean about this.

My 4 Best Kept Fitness Secrets

I Hate Cardio

And not just a little, y’all. I hate it a LOT. I hate how everything jiggles and bounces. I hate how hard it is to breathe. I hate that I feel like everyone is staring at me (I know they’re not). I really don’t like how my whole body turns beet red and someone always asks me if I’m okay (no I’m not, I don’t like doing this!).

I’d much rather lift heavy any day of the week. Thankfully, I’ve found that I love skating, and that thankfully qualifies as actual cardio.

I Forget To Take Rest Days

And then I pay for it. Like this week. I didn’t rest up when my body told me I should have, and now I’m paying for it with a hurt knee.


Rest days are super important to working out-even the most amazing athletes take a day off each week.

I Workout For “Quiet Time”

As a mom, I rarely get any time to myself. Even in the evenings, when my boys are in bed, I’m working. But at the gym? Or doing crossfit? It’s all about me. I love my quiet time, and if that’s what gets me out the door, I’m okay with that!

I Go Commando

…sometimes. When I do a long yoga class or if it’s over 80 degrees and I know that my WOD is going to make me sweat buckets (which is always). Now, I didn’t always do this. Partly because I never really got what “clean” felt like.


But, I had the opportunity to try out Cottonelle® with it’s ripple texture…and it makes a huge difference! When I’m confident my bum is clean, it’s easier to skip the skivvies. Now, but only Cottonelle® has CleanRipple Texture. When you combine ripples with flushable cleansing cloths…it’s over. You’re clean. Like squeaky.


And no one has to know!

And, if you’re in San Diego, be sure to share your #CleanConfession with Cottonelle® at Wanderlust 108 in San Diego on Sunday, May 8. If you can’t make it, be sure to enter to win an all inclusive trip to the Wanderlust 108 Festival in Miami in October!
