• When you need some fitness motivation—and fast—turn to Pinterest. It’s true: The site famous for drool-worthy house porn and date-night outfit ideas is also a terrific resource for easy-to-follow, sweat-tastic workouts. Click through for 12 good ones. [POPSUGAR Fitness]
Some days, getting yourself off the couch and into your sneakers is way easier said than done. I mean, let’s face it: Posting up with a Law and Order: SVU marathon and central air conditioning is simply more appealing than sweating your face off in 90-degree weather. And those “Keep Calm and Sweat On” Instagram posts, hashtagged with every variation of “fitspiration” imaginable—#fitspiration, #fitspirationquote #fitspirational, and so on—are more cringe-inducing than motivating, am I right?
But not to worry, friends: Next time you catch yourself ditching the sweat session for a hangout sesh with your favorite SVU detectives, refer to this handy list of motivational mantras. These quotes will get you off the couch without making you cringe. And I promise, Detective Stabler will still be waiting for you on Netflix when you get back.
There’s no doubt about it: healthy eating is the bomb. It’s good for your your body, your brain—it can even up your Instagram following if you style it correctly. The only problem is, without a bazillion and one sources of inspiration, coming up with healthy recipe ideas can be tough. And after a long, draining day of working/watching cat videos on YouTube/twisting yourself into a pretzel during hot yoga–or whatever it is that you do during the day—the last thing you want to do is rack your brain for a healthy dinner idea, right?
We’re totally with you. So to make sure none of us ever has to think of a healthy dinner recipe again, we’ve scoured the depths of Pinterest to find the most amazing healthy-eating recipe boards our fellow Philadelphians have to offer (aside from ours, of course!). Here, seven totally drool-inducing Pinterest boards overflowing with years—maybe even decades!—worth of healthy recipes and inspiration. Happy cooking, friends!
(Warning: Pinterest is like Pringles—once you start, you canNOT stop. Case in point: I spent an entire two days this week just looking at Pinterest boards. You’ve been warned.)
Warning: Use of Pinterest may result in food-photo-induced slobbering, painful wanderlust, and hours upon hours of time wasted.
Okay, so that warning label doesn’t exist but, seriously, it should: I have spent at least one third of my life on Pinterest and I only started using it like four months ago. (I know that doesn’t sound mathematically feasible, but it’s totally accurate—I swear.) So to save you the hassle of scrolling through thousands of captivating photos and potentially losing days of your life, we’ve done the work for you. Here are our top five, can’t-miss, favorite pins of the month.
And if you’re on Pinterest and haven’t followed Be Well Philly yet, you can do that right here.
We know “The Dirt” has created a faithful readership since debuting over the summer. Author Emily Teel’s tips for what to look for each weekend have been invaluable.
