I’ve gotten back into working out recently—I just truly feel SO much better when I’m breaking a sweat regularly. When I feel strong, physically, it really helps me feel stronger mentally. With the stressors of the world at large these days, I’m trying to make a concerted effort to get ahead of my anxiety and commit to working out at least three times a week. I was so busy around the holidays that I ended up completely slacking on staying active. Once the weather turns and I can’t easily spend time outdoors with the kiddos, my motivation to get moving and work out really diminishes. Programs like MYX and Obé really help me get back on track, especially when it’s not the best weather to be outside.
Recently, I’ve been working out either first thing in the morning before the kids are awake (like around 6 am), or at night on the weekends. Sometimes I’ll even try to end work an hour early and squeeze in some time working out before my nanny goes home for the evening. I aim for some kind of work out three times a week, but in a perfect world, I could get in 4-5 workouts a week. I’m somebody who really gets bored easily when it comes to working out, so I like to mix it up with the bike, barre, yoga flow, and even dance type workouts. I also LOVE long walks or hikes when the weather starts to warm up.
Something that helps me stay motivated is investing in great workout gear! Since so many of us are re-committing to health in the new year, I thought it was a great opportunity to share with you guys some of my current favorite workout clothes. Let me know which ones you like the most!
