I am back with a fitness post...finally. I know, if it wasn't for an occassional picture on Instagram, I would be worried yall might not even think I work out anymore. I'm not going to sugar coat it, I have not been in the gym much this year, and I blame it on school. Okay, so that's not entirely true. School has kept me crazy busy along with busy season at work and my certification classes I take for work too, but come on, I could definitely squeeze in at least 30 minutes a day, right? I feel like this year has flown by, and has by far been the worse with me creating excuses. Do you have those days (or months) where you just aren't feeling it? I've still been running though, but my weight lifting and bootcamp has seen a serious decline (like nonexistent.) What do you do to get pumped up about going back to the gym? I know how it is, once you start going again you love it and can't imagine why you didn't go for so long! I'm more of an outdoors person and can't even force myself to run on the treadmill anymore like I used to, but I need to get back in there for weights and abs. I guess I could try on my bikini, and that should motivate me to lift weights...pronto! Luckily, I've been eating pretty healthy, (aside from that Muddy's cupcake and cookie I had on Tuesday at the Madewell event) = ) but food is definitely only half the battle. Diet and exercise work together. I love doing my 5K's because I have a few good running partners, but I'm thinking I need a gym buddy too. Any takers?
I stole this picture from Mel, but she sent me a matching tank top like this. Isn't it cute?! I love all the Ruffles with Love tank tops! They are my go-to place for running tank tops in addition to this Hazel & Olive tank top and this mint colored one from Loft. To help get me more motivated, I could really use your input on some of your favorite workout gear - tops, shoes, socks, shorts - I want to hear about it all. Do you have Brooks shoes? What do you think about them? Though they don't have workout shoes, they do have amazing shoes to wear out. Don't forget you can still get 25% off your first pair of shoes from Shoedazzle!
