I have it on Good Authority These are the Best Workout Pants!

I put on a pair of workout pants yesterday, they were tight (ugh! and not because of me – I have lost a bunch of weight – so what is that all about?), scratchy and the stretch was non-existent.  I will not tell you the brand but I was unhappy, uncomfortable and it made my workout horrible.  Know the feeling?  Isn’t it the worst?  I swear having comfortable, stretch worthy and good looking gear is imperative to my fitness.  A very good friend swears by the new Powervita from Athleta and I am ready to jump in with both feet! Bye Bye old tired pants.. Hello Powervita!

There really is nothing worse than uncomfortable workout pants, so Ridgely Brode finds new favorites on her blog Ridgely's Radar

What is Your New Years Resolution?

So…what is your New Years Resolution?  I have the same one every year, to get back to working out and slim down. Sad to say that it is a recurring theme and I should have learned by now to get to it.. especially at my age!  This year I am 100% better off than I was last year because I lost 10 pounds leading up to Christmas.  I think, well, to be honest, I know, I have gained several back from enjoying the Holidays and vacation with my family, but I continued to watch what I ate, drank and moved my body as much as possible.  I stayed on my new health lifestyle regime as much as possible and will get back on my second 30 day regime on Monday, January 9th.  I am actually looking forward to it because I like a routine and the first round was so much easier than I could ever imagine and I have never felt better! (Anyone looking to join me, send me a note and we can hold each other accountable and support each other!)

I am now ready to add the exercise component.  I spoke about doing the Sweat App last Summer in this post and am going to start back to Week One on Monday.  I may be taking on too much at once, but I am going to do my best to go a day at a time and not over think it. I can come up with a million and one excuses NOT to exercise, so if I can motivate everyday to do something that will be a huge accomplishment.  I figure a few new pieces of workout gear and clothes wouldn’t hurt to make me feel good and am eyeing these leggings (all black until I meet my goal and can rock a pattern), this tank and this vest for layering.  Feel free to share in the comments below your resolutions and we canhelp each other stay on track!  Good Luck and Here’s to a great 2017!
