I’m not sure what I love more – leggings I can style an oversized sweater with or leggings that double as loungewear and workout gear. Why not have it all? That’s how I feel whenever I walk into lululemon. I could probably pick one of everything, but I decided to share my top five favorites I found on a recent visit to my local lululemon store along with some real talk on working out. Because honestly, finding time to get to the gym is hard. But the idea of some fresh new lululemon items in my closet to help kick off my 2019 fitness goals sounds amazing. Because who doesn’t love new workout gear to inspire a good sweat session?
First, you may have noticed I said “goals”, not resolutions. And that’s because I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, but I do believe in New Year’s goals. I am a proponent of establishing yearly goals in all areas of our lives. This year, my top challenge to myself is to work out regularly from my home gym and have a close friend keep me accountable – maybe even babysit while I’m in the zone.
For me, it’s incredibly therapeutic getting my workout done. This past year, though, it was a real challenge to make it to our gym. Can you relate? Life gets so busy and before you know it, the gym isn’t even a priority anymore. If you’re looking for a little encouragement in this department, here are two tips I like to remember when digging for motivation.
1. New Gear
Spend some money on a sports bra that fits. This is so important, ladies! One of my favorite things about lululemon is they’ll fit you while you’re at the store. Also, buy items you love and feel good in. Let’s be honest, cute, high-quality workout gear often gets me motivated!
2. Get an Accountability Partner
Whether this person is your hubby or a close girlfriend, just get one. I find it incredibly helpful. Thankfully my husband loves working out, so we plan on putting together a lot of workout content for couples to do together. Stay tuned for that… and keep me accountable!!!!
