Workout motivation for the New Year

Workout motivation for the New Year

With the new year here, I’ve established some goals and hopes for 2019!! I don’t necessarily jump on the ‘resolutions’ train, I think they end up failing, rather I think more about what I can do better and become a more Godly woman. There’s just something so sweet about the new year. I always think of it as a new chapter in the book of life! I can’t wait to see what 2019 holds for myself and for both Colin and I.

I know a ton of people love to focus on fitness and being more disciplined in that area in the new year, so today I wanted to share some of my current favorite workout clothes! Cause let’s be real, new workout clothes are always motivating! I always feel better about myself and my workouts if I have cute clothes to do it in!

As you probably know by now, working out and living an active lifestyle is something I really strive for and try to prioritize. Why? it’s not to loose weight (i’ve been down that route before, it’s just because it makes e feel good about me & makes me sain!) For the longest time, I always feel better after a workout and never regret getting it done. However, I do have to admit getting there can be hard, but once I get in the groove all is good!

So if I am being real with y’all, it can often be easy to find excuses not to workout or to stick to a new resolution. Keeping up motivation can just be so hard! For me personally, I’ve found that having the right workout clothes can make such a huge difference! Not only does it make working out for comfortable, but it can just be so motivating! I feel like even just shopping for workout clothes and trying them on makes me more excited to go on a run or get in some strength training. This is so silly, but it’s sooo true!! I know so many other people who feel the SAME way. I hate to admit it, but something when I feel SUPER down in my workouts, I will get a new workout outfit. Then BAM, I’m ready and motivated. Y’all know the phrase “dress for the job you want, not the job you have”? I feel like that can kind of apply to staying active too. Just getting dressed in good workout outfit can help so much and make you feel more confident!

Okay, when I laid eyes on this outfit combo I feel head over heels over it! This blush workout gear from Calia by Carrie is giving me ALL the heart eyes lately! So I knew I had to share it with y’all. First off, these high-waisted leggings are not only insanely flattering, but the material is also incredibly soft and flattering. Best thing? these are not see through and don’t show sweat. AMEN! I love that they aren’t your typical black workout leggings, so they’re a little more fun and feminine.

This blush velvet pullover is also a favorite, especially for going to and from places! This may seem silly, but sometimes I will wear pullovers like this because they make the workout outfit sooo cute! I think y’all can see why I love this pullover sooo much. It’s so adorable, but it’s super comfy and warm! You can keep it on after the gym while you’re running errands, etc., and still feel so put together!
And lastly, these sneakers  – I’m completely obsessed! I wear them to and from the gym and on casual days. I have them in black and I just couldn’t pass up the cream ones. Adidas really has made a come back and they are probably my top favorite athletic brand for shoes right now. If you are looking for a good sneaker for casual days this one this is it, or y’all can shop other favorites below too…

I hope this post helped you get a better idea of some great workout clothes and how they can make such a difference in achieving your fitness goals! So if you’re looking for a little extra motivation for fitness and the new year, definitely think about investing in some workout clothes you love! It totally helps me!!

Love from Texas,
