So yes, I’m here, I’m alive. I just decided to take a little break for the New Year. What I have been doing is working on my New Year’s resolution of getting fit and healthy. I’m usually a healthy eater and try to work out regularly, but sometimes I fall off the wagon for awhile and it’s always difficult to get started again. When I get into the groove (thank you Madonna) I usually have to find little things to keep me motivated along the way…such as new workout wear!
I probably spend more on workout wear than most but “workout wear” for me covers a lot of bases…I actually commute to and from work in workout wear, sometimes travel in it and then obviously workout in it! So I justify the cost for it’s durability and use it gets. I mean getting up and getting dressed is half the battle, so it makes it easier when you love what you’re wearing!
Haven’t stuck with your resolutions? The beauty is that you can start again whenever you want! A few other things that keep me motivated are new workout playlists and actually taking a class, in my case that would be spin class. I’m also going to start training for a half-marathon as well, and I’m following Hal Higdon’s program, let me know if you want to join me!
I love black and white, it’s just so classic and sleek. If you know me, you know I do not wear old t-shirts or crazy colored workout wear. I go more for design and function with interesting details. I have tried many brands and there are a few I absolutely love! Still my absolute favorite workout pants are by Lululemon, the Wunder Under Hi-Rise legging in brushed black, and I just discovered I love the new shorter 7/8 version too! I also recommend Alo Yoga for their moto leggings, I have them in black and they now come in a high waist version and several colors (I would love to get them in white, but things need to get a lot tighter and smoother, lol)! Lately I love New Balance for getting to and from class, I don’t run in them. Running shoes are a whole different category and I don’t choose those on looks (I know, it’s serious), I go by fit. We can talk about those another time:).
Here are my newest additions….
This sweatshirt is so soft and it keeps selling out everywhere!
