Happy Monday Lovlies!
Like every girl (I like to think) Monday’s are a day for fresh starts and setting goals, you can’t start something new unless it’s a Monday, it’s just the rule of life ;). I usually like to blame everything on Mondays and use it as an excuse to delay my goals one more day, but not this week. Before our May wedding this year I got myself into a very healthy fitness and healthy eating routine and lifestyle but just as easily as this became a routine – I fell right out of it. After the wedding I told myself I deserved to take a little break for 2 weeks or so and just enjoy myself and whatever I wanted to eat, then I’d get back into my healthy routine. Well, those 2 weeks turned into 5 months later and here I am sitting here typing this post. For about 2 months now I’ve told myself I’m going to “get back into it”. Every Sunday night has been spent setting the alarm for 5AM only to wake up and hit snooze for 2 more hours. Well enough is enough and I’m ready to make a change – for real this time. My hope in sharing this is that it will hold me accountable to actually take the time out of everyday and become healthy again for myself. I’m a firm believer in “If you look good you feel good and if you feel good you do good” and well, I haven’t been feeling so good lately.
To kickstart this healthy change I’m sharing details on one of my favorite looks, athleisure of course. I love these faux leather leggings as they are so very versatile. You can wear these with the perfect little bootie to dress it up or pair them with a cute sneaker like I did here. These knitted mesh PUMA Carson Heath sneakers are so cute and trendy not to mention comfortable. The knitted mesh fabric makes these the most breathable pair of sneaks I own, which is great for this new fitness routine I’ll be starting. Sound off in the comments below and let me know your tips and tricks for getting back into a routine and more importantly, STAYING there.
Leaving you with my favorite quote from one of my favorite motivational videos, Mindshift. Scroll to the bottom of the post to watch this powerful video.
“There is nothing as powerful as a changed mind. You can change your hair, your clothing, your address, your spouse, your residence. But if you don’t change your mind, the same experience will perpetuate itself over and over again. Because everything outwardly changed, but nothing inwardly changed.”
