“Strong is the new skinny” seems to be the latest trend for women. My Instagram feed is now packed with trending “swellfies” (taking flexing pictures during or after getting “swole” at the gym), my Twitter feed is overflowing with motivational health quotes and recipes and my Pinterest feed is often fitness related.

After all, the workout doesn’t count if you didn’t post incessantly about it, right?

With a newfound muscle-loving mentality and increased popularity in activities such as CrossFit, it’s no surprise that this lifestyle has become such a popular trend. Admittedly, my passion for a healthy regime over the past few years may have been influenced by this fit-crazy hype.

However, if you’re anything like me, the winter blues and long work hours have slowed down your overly-ambitious New Year’s Resolution to stay active. Thankfully, there are several simple steps to help keep you prepared and productive as spring approaches.

The secret to a successful and systematic fitness schedule when you’re constantly on-the-go? Technology organization.

Make every minute count

As obvious as it may sound, utilizing your smartphone to help keep you on track is a must (after all, it’s called a smartphone for a reason). When you fill out your schedule for tomorrow, be sure to include that 15 minute walk to the grocery store.
