The holiday countdown is on and although that should be enough motivation to get me in the gym, some days when the alarm goes at 5:30am, I simply can’t face leaving the comfort of my bed. It should be easier now that the clocks have changed and the mornings are lighter but some days that’s just not enough.
One thing that does help inspire me to go is buying new gym clothes. Don’t judge me – we all do it and if that’s the thing that’s going to get me there then that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I picked up some new leggings from Forever 21 and they are a perfect fit. I really like their active wear range, it’s great value and the quality is excellent. They also have nice bright colours which I like to wear when I’ve got a bit of a tan but for now I’ll stick to my usual monochrome vibe. I’ve got a couple more things in my basket including a sports bra, leggings and a few tops which I might pick up shortly.
This crop top from Ivy Park is also quite new. I like the longer length and the detail on the band. It’s nice and simple and comfortable too. I’ve worn my Nike zipped hoodie over the top and matching Nike trainers too.
So now I’ve got the new gear, it’s time to hit the gym!
