Shop your way to the gym.

Who said you couldn’t look cute at the gym? Try shopping for new workout clothes and you won’t be able to wait to hit the gym. There are a ton of great places to get tops n bottoms you’ll love, but some of my favorites are:

Forever 21  – they have cheap yoga pants, shorts, tops, & sports bras.. you name it! Although these may not last forever, they’ll be good for many months and are great for those of you who can’t be seen twice wearing the same outfit.

Khols – I’ve found some of my favorite yoga pants and running tops here. I get neutral colors (ex. black, and grey) because I know they’ll last me forever and can go with any top!

Vistoria Secret – Very cute tops and sports bras online. I didn’t find as many choices in store, but once you know your size you’re golden shopping online. Better yet, shop in the winter and you’ll see tons of choices at discount.

Fabletics – I haven’t tried this online store yet, but am dying to! “Co-founded by Kate Hudson, Fabletics is ahigh-quality athletic wear and accessories line that helps you feel great, look great and is incredibly affordable.” I took this from thier website to help describe it. Basically, they sell fitness outfits! I LOVE Kate Hudson and the designs look cute so I’ll be trying this site soon! (ps. If anyone has already bought from here, I’d love to know how you like it)

 

Slim for LIFE.

I just finished reading Slim for Life by Jillian Michaels which teaches you lifelong habits to stay slim and let me tell you ..it’s a MUST READ 🙂 Jillian breaks the book down into sections (how to grocery shop, ways to dress so you look slimmer, best workout habits, etc..) and at the end of each section she gives you a checklist. The checklist helps you track what habits you are currently doing and lets you pick which new ones you want to add. I love this book because, its a life long reference book. Once you nail down a new habit, like begin shopping at the farmers market, you can go back and add another new habit.

 If you’re like me and are tired of the constant battle of gaining weight, losing weight, and gaining it again – this book is for you. My new years resolution is to focus on overall health and maintaining this healthy lifestyle forever. No more calorie counting battles for me. I’m slowly working to integrate new healthy habits into my lifestyle so healthy becomes a no brainer!

Sound intimidating? Don’t worry – you can take baby steps. About 10 years ago, I gave up soda because my soccer coach said it would make me slower. I began drinking water instead and began to love the taste of water. When the season ended, I kept the habit and now I always order ice water. Little did I know, but this little habit has saved me thousands of calories and several pounds a year. Not to mention, I’m always hydrated and feeling ready for anything.
