These 10 Tips Will Make You Never Skip a Workout Again

September 18th, 2018

To say I’m excited for this month’s installment of Living Kindly would be — at best – a total understatement. I got the opportunity to sit down and talk to a wonderful woman who has truly transformed her life in just a few short years, and more recently, took part in a 30-day workout challenge that is now an everyday part of her life. Did I mention this incredible lady happens to be my sister, the lovely Nicole Krause?

This month’s editorial theme at Camille Styles is all about “Simplicity,” and that’s exactly how I’d describe Nicole. Never one to overcomplicate things, or rush through life, she keeps all aspects of her world simple and calm. She’s about as easy-going as they get.

In 2016, after 14 years of smoking, Nicole made the mentally and physically tough decision to finally quit. It wasn’t easy, but I personally witnessed her handle it with such grace and patience. Since then, she’s made a commitment to herself to lead and live a healthy life – one that she feels in control of.

This past May, Nicole embarked on simple movement challenge with her fellow work colleagues. The premise? Just move for 30 minutes each day for the entire month. While I was a hard pass on joining the fun (I tend to get competitive and obsessive/all-or-nothing, and have been trying hard to move away from that lifestyle), I watched Nicole not only conquer the challenge, but have fun with it, motivate others (myself included), build a community of online and IRL friends, and of course, become physically stronger. And in true Krause fashion, as of September 12, Nicole has made it 75 consecutive days of moving her body for 30 minutes.

Nicole shared her tips for starting, how she stayed motivated, what she’s learned, and how something so simple can make such a big impact.
