you know what they say: fries before guys. we’re not slamming valentine’s day, but not all of us have a significant other to couple up with come february 14th. and even if you do have a longtime love, who couldn’t use a night with the girls every now + then?? that’s why we came up with a few fun ideas to love it up with your ladies, fitlosophy style, for galentine’s day this year!
[a galentine’s bachelor workout]
watching the bachelor is fun, but watching the bachelor while playing commentator with all your girlfriends throughout?? that’s epic. only this viewing won’t be happening on the couch. because we figure why not work up some endorphins with a special bachelor-themed workout while you watch? not only can you dvr the bachelor on monday + save it for this galentine’s day sweat sesh (a lot to ask, we know!), combine the best of both worlds - the bachelor + workin’ that booty! i mean watching a 6-pack clad bachelor while doing burpees isn't the worst thing in the world, right? and we’ve got the moves for every occasion - every time you see or hear the thing on the left, do the thing on the right.
see this - do that.
smooching - 20 push-ups
bathing suits - 60-second plank
“connection” - 15 tricep dips
crying - 15 squat jumps
date card - 20 (10 per side) plyo lunges
“the right reasons” - 10 burpees
mean-muggin’ - 60-second bear crawls
“will you accept this rose?” - 10 jumping jacks
who needs a crowded prix-fixe restaurant or some tired box of chocolates? have everyone pitch in + bring a yummy treat for your very own galentine’s day dessert potluck. you can even do wine pairings to up the femme fun factor even more with our 5 favorite red wines under $12. then pair with one of our 5 health(ier) chocolate sweet treats like a gooey guilt-free chocolate lava cake or paleo chocolate pudding. or why sip wine separately? we've got recipes for cabernet fudge pops + red wine hot chocolate that combine the best of wine worlds.
[galentine’s dance party]
is there anything that’s more fun or makes you feel more alive than an all-girls dance party?? of course, this requires a suitably sisterhood-y soundtrack, so we’ve taken the liberty of creating the ultimate girl-power playlist for your rump-shaking pleasure. [click here to view on spotify]
