I have always had a love hate relationship with working out. For some crazy reason I gain more weight around the holidays-- don't all women? Well after last years Thanksgiving I decided to hit the gym religiously. I worked out daily and did my best attempt with eating healthier. I lived off of salad- lunch & dinner almost everyday. Once I moved in with my boyfriend he brought it my attention that salad alone is "not dinner".. hmm who knew! So this health kick lasted until the summer and then I sunk back into my bad eating habits. I have to admit I'm an emotional eater! I eat when I'm happy, sad, mad and most importantly when I'm bored! Its horrible!!!! I'm also a big snacker! I've learned to swap out bad carbs and sugars with good ones. Anyways long story short: I decided to get back on this health craze. What better way to get motivated about working out then looking good while you work out-- like some new kicks and apparel.
I picked up some new gear this weekend at Nike to get motivated and get back into the gym. I think I was born into the Nike craze-- its in my blood. My brother worked at Nike and then I worked at Nike and even my boyfriend has worked at Nike. Its our go to brand for sportswear! I was going to the gym daily again and then decided to take a break -- that ended up being 2 weeks off! Yikes! I went to the gym yesterday in my new gear and have to say -- its so refreshing to get a good work out in! My bff put me on this new app- FIT radio- that's perfect for working out & its free to download - it definitely kicked up my workout. (Check it out if you have an ipod or iphone! )
I picked up some new socks - in my favorite colors of course!
some new running shorts which were on sale!!
& new kicks!
A new summer colorful sports bra
