New Gear: New Goals: New Me #DSGFit4U

workout_2I’ve been talking a lot about getting in shape this year. In fact, it’s been my number one priority since December. Something switched on in the middle of the holidays and I haven’t been able to shake it. Believe me, I’m so very thankful for this conscious shift. I’m not 40 yet, but I’m getting there and it’s about time I start loving my body the way it deserves to be loved.

So, I joined a gym and started to eat more mindfully. For the first few weeks, I actually went to classes wearing old sweatpants and t shirts that I owned and used as pajamas. Not going to lie. I didn’t think I “deserved” any new gear because I was just getting started. I didn’t really want to invest in anything of quality because I could barely walk up the stairs to get to my Barre Fusion class… forget about actually getting THROUGH the class!!!

But after two months of commitment, I’m in! All in. And my fashion side is pushing forward with full force. I love to shop (as you know) and I love to stay on top of the latest trends for my day to day wear. It only makes sense that I would do the same when it comes to my gym gear.

Since I like to do a variety of activity – running, yoga, barre, strength training – I wanted to make sure that I picked up clothing that worked for my range. I was in desperate need of a vest to wear while out jogging and found so many options!! In fact, I bought TWO!

I was able to take both out for a spin and am SO HAPPY with my purchases. I needed something lightweight and with POCKETS for my tunes. For last night’s brisk walk, I took my daughter along with me and we both had a blast.

When I can’t make it to the gym, I usually do online workouts at home. Again, DICK’S Sporting Goods had exactly what I needed. The best part about these clothes? They are so stylish that I can get up and run errands once I am done with my workout. Those lightweight vests work for day to day wear and I LIVE in stretch pants on a weekly basis — I’m so happy to have these two new ones added to my wardrobe.
