Working it Out: The Gear


We’ve been talking a lot about fitness over here lately, and I hope that is okay… it’s just been interesting watching my whole attitude towards exercise change.  It’s become my most favorite part of the day and something that I look forward to doing for myself instead of dreading.  Even after getting back from Ireland on Sunday night, I really, genuinely just wanted to go to my yoga class.  It felt awesome to feel that way.  And yesterday, I worked out twice.  Twice!

So it’s only natural that I’ve had my eye on a lot of pretty new workout gear to help me stay motivated.  At the top of my list is all of Nike’s big swoosh gear like this tee {the swoosh is definitely cool again – I love the playful/retro vibe}, a FitBit bracelet {I’m particularly intrigued by the sleep tracking part}, and these awesome leggings so that I can wear my fave city on my leg!  Oh and these yoga shoes… I’m so so curious to try them out.

    Great links! My FitBit just broke, so I am on the market for a new one. Walking seems pointless without one. :)

    I’ve always been a very loyal Nike fan. Not really sure why except that I just really like em. I’m also really interested in getting a fitbit! I’ve heard a lot of good things about them!

    I’ve had a similar reawakening of my love of exercise lately. And, as the changes start to happen in my body, I can’t help but want to look good while putting in the work! Thanks for sharing your finds :)

    Yay! I’m so happy for you that you found a workout that you enjoy! It’s different for everyone- I think that’s the key. I love running and crossfit and I abhor spin class. I love yoga too- although it definitely always reminds me of how unflexible I am! It’s nice to find what works. I find that I’m a much more happy version of myself if I get in some sort of movement during the day.

    Happy Tuesday! Stay warm.

    I moved to NYC last year and started reading your blog to get acquainted to city life, really enjoy reading it! I am struggling to get motivated when the weather is so bad outside – I think you’re right, a Fitbit and some new workout gear might be just the thing!
