Fitness as a New Year's Resolution? So original! Ha. But bear with me...

In 2014, I ran my first half marathon, and in 2015 my goal is to run a 10k and another half marathon.

It seems to me that the most common New Year's resolution is to get in shape. Right around Thanksgiving I injured my knee and it was pretty much impossible for me to exercise for a month. The injury, paired with the cold weather and Holidays really knocked my health off track. I've been pushing myself to work out more over this Christmas break, and I plan on keeping it up through the new year (and hopefully for, well, forever!). Like I've mentioned a million times before on this blog, new fitness gear is the most motivating way to get me to the gym. Right now is a great time to stock up because of all the post-holiday sales going on.


Tank, Victoria's Secret $29 - Long Sleeve, GapFit $45 - Vest, J. Crew $80 (+ 40% off*)
Leggings, Athleta $60 (+25% off*) - Sports Bra, Hurley $19 - Scarf, 14th & Union $10
Beanie, Zella $34 - Socks, Z by Zella $10 - Mat, Nike $80 (similar)
*As of 12/26 J. Crew and Athleta both have additional percentages off the sale price. 

Of the above, I already snagged the long sleeve, vest, and mat. All three of them have been excellent products, so allow me to elaborate:
Long SleeveI have not stopped talking about how much I absolutely love the long sleeve tee from Gap, it is so comfortable and I wear it around the house and running errands all the time. 
VestThe vest is fantastic because it is not technically athletic wear so I can wear it with jeans, but it's easy to throw on to and from the gym. 
Mat- I recently upgraded from a cheap yoga mat to a nice Nike one. For once, I was not sliding all over my mat during yoga because the grip is astronomically better. I use my mat all the time at home for HIIT workouts, yoga, abs, etc. I can't find my exact mat online, but I found another similar Nike mat. 

Now get out and get sweaty!
