I’m not going to lie. Staying motivated has been tough these last few weeks. I find if I go to bed even just 20 minutes past my usual, you might as well just pour a bucket of cold water on me to wake me up. I feel so exhausted! Jaryd has been amazing getting me up for my early morning workouts. Some days he literally pulls my arms to lift me out of bed. But in the end, I’m always happy that I got it done early 🙂
On those lazy mornings where I feel like a pile of cold concrete bricks and my freshly unpacked down comforter is feeling just right, I try to fit my workout in somewhere during the day. Whether it’s running, or doing a video during nap time, or using the playground equipment to slyly do some calf raises, I do my best to get something in.
So here’s my number one secret to staying on track. My number one reason for getting up in the morning, going for that run, doing some sort of physical activity. It’s a top secret trick that I am sharing exclusively with you guys. It has a zero fail rate and is guaranteed to help you stay on track. Ok ok, no studies have been done, but yeah. It most likely probably miiight work!
Here’s my trick to staying on track. Here it is. Are you ready? Ok, prepare yourself. Drum roll please…. get cute workout gear. Why is this a no fail method to staying on track? Because 1) You feel awesome, 2) Getting dressed is like the hardest part of mentally preparing yourself that you are about to work out, 3) Financially you have invested some money in these cute new clothes and your guilt barometer will seriously tilt if you don’t make good use out of them. Oh and? I suppose this is 4) There are insanely cute workout clothes happening nowadays. The prints, you guys, I am LOVING.
So, I found Albion. I went for it and got this AMAZING long sleeve crew neck with THUMB HOLES. It is the softest fabric, the prettiest color, and is so versatile! It can be worn to workout (I love running in it) or it can be dressed casually and worn throughout your day as an everyday type shirt. It is stretchy and flattering and long enough.
GUYS. Albion was nice enough to GIVE TWO AWAY to you guys! Yes!!!! Two winners will each win the same shirt I have – the Go Long Crew with Thumb Holes!! Ok, I apologize if there is excessive exclamation use, but if you are not excited about this you may need to go check your pulse. kthxbye.
You will obviously pick your size and color. I chose cool mint. Because I’m cool. And minty. But I kinda want one in every color. I am hardcore eyeballing that striped one. And the black one. They have these gorgeous black pants with white flowers that are on my Christmas list (cough, hint, subtly fly a banner plane over our house so Jaryd gets the message please).
So! There it is. My little ditty about Staying Motivated + Albion Giveaway. Enter below and fingers crossed for you!! What are your favorite tricks to get excited about your workouts? xo
