Monday Motivation {Workout}

Happy Monday, Friends!

How was your weekend?
Considering mine was spent with friends & family AND the CATS won…it was pretty great!

IF you missed the game Saturday & need a little recap check out the video below…it’s all you need to know!

This also happened this weekend….

I am one step closer to achieving this month’s goal of joining the gym…with new tennis shoes

I chose the Nike Free because they are so lightweight & comfortable. They’re flexible, roomie, & cute too. 

I figured that since I am working my way to an official “gym member” I better get a few things in line… 

 …Workout Plan…

There’s a bagillion of these on Pinterest but the ones that catch my eye the most are the simple, not-so advanced or time consuming ones. Is that bad? Listen, I got to start somewhere, right?



…Workout Food…

What kind of motivation would this be without food?! I am sure I don’t have to tell y’all, but I love food. Cook, Bake, Eat….I do it all! So of course it’s on the list. Working out is only one step in the right direction, eating well must become a lifestyle for it to become sustainable.


…Workout Music…

Nothing makes a good workout flow easier than a good playlist. There are tons of great tunes out there to keep you moving. Here’s a list I came across on…you guessed it…Pinterest!



…Workout Clothes…

Let’s be honest here…all I really want is some new clothes & a smokin’ body. Let’s start with some great new workout clothes, shall we?!


…Workout Partner…

Now that I finally have an awesome new friend, I am officially deeming her my workout partner…lucky her!
After all, who could do this on their own?


Do any of y’all have great gym routines?! Help a sister out & have a great week!

Frankly my dear…Hello Gym Membership!

    Clothes and music make all the difference! My fave pre gym snack is a banana with almonds and peanut butter and a glass of Spark. It fuels me!

    Nike has such cute color combinations for their running shorts! I tend to run in capris because then I don't have to deal with them riding up… so irritating, but I've never had Nike's so let me know if you have that issue with them, please! Enjoy your new shoes!

    Cute new shoes and workout gear! I've been on a similar kick of trying to get motivated and taking baby steps towards my health and fitness goals. It's nice to know I'm not alone, so thanks for sharing!!

    Is it bad that I motivate myself to workout by buying new workout clothes?! Love Nike's temp shorts 🙂 🙂 Crazier colors, the better, ha!
