As the weather gets warmer and warmer, many of us are feeling the pressure to tone up before hitting the beach. Especially, in light of the year long quarantine and time away from the gym. However, as the world is opening back up and vaccines are becoming more available, as a society we're slowly warming up to getting back into our fitness routines.

Personally, I am trying to get back to my pre-quarantine size. I spent much of my year watching "Bridgerton," "Tiger King," and rewatching "America's Next Top Model" while enjoying all the homemade sourdough bread I could stomach. In that time, I'm a few pounds away from feeling bikini ready. However, it's important to recognize that this is my own experience and many of you have a different definition of a beach body—which is a-okay!

There are plenty of ways you can find the inspiration to get back to the gym, whether that's signing up for a new membership or buying a cute outfit. And, if you're feeling really bold, you could get a tattoo to foster your motivation.
