In January of 2018 I set a goal to workout 5x per week for 3 months. When April 2018 rolled around, I had successfully met that goal and decided to make it a permanent part of my weekly routine.
Working out and eating healthy is a lifestyle change and I was determined to stick to it. I can proudly say that I worked out 5x per week (with the exception of some vacations and being sick) for the entire year of 2018 until December rolled around.
We sold our house and moved, my job changed so I was working more hours, and the holidays were happening.
My working out and healthy eating literally came to a halt. I just let my healthy lifestyle and hard work slip right through my fingers.
I kid you not, I gained 6 pounds in a matter of 2 months and was miserable. At the beginning of March I decided I was going to take control of the situation and get back on track. As of yesterday, I am back down 5 pounds but more importantly, I feel strong again and I know I am doing what is best for my health.
I am working out 5-6x per week and doing a combination of weight training, HIIT Cardio and Cycling classes. My energy levels are back up and so is my mood.
All in all, I am happier and a more productive person when I workout and eat healthy.
Since I am spending more time in the gym and often run errands right after my workout (I take the kids to the gym with me so since I’m already out of the house I might as well run all my errands!), I needed to update my activewear so that I am not only presentable at the gym, but when I’m out and about.
I don’t have time to shower and change at the gym because I have the kids with me and so our time is usually pretty structured and limited.
Here are some of my favorite affordable activewear pieces that can be worn from street to gym and back out again!
I also LOVE to look for affordable Activewear pieces at Nordstrom Rack online or in store!
You can find my exact pants here. They are so soft and comfortable and they aren’t see through when you bend over!
I linked up my massive water bottle below and lastly, I get a lot of questions about these shoes when I wear them. They were a gift from Jason! I actually found them on Amazon in multiple sizes! They are more on the spendy side but like I said, they were gift! :
We are about to head out to Claire’s ballet lessons in about an hour and then off to run a few random errands, so we have a busy morning! I plan on working out later this afternoon! Today is cardio day so I am going to be doing a spin class.
We have all been fighting a nasty cold so I hope we are all 100% better before we leave to Maui on Tuesday morning!

Enjoy the day and as always, thank you for stopping by!
