Running Errands or Working Out?

Do you work out regularly? I wish I did –  there are so many benefits for both your physical and mental health. But I’m caught in that cycle – I’m too tired to exercise, and then I’m tired BECAUSE I don’t exercise!

I’ve tried making it into a daily habit – just hopping on the elliptical and telling myself it’s ok to go at a slow pace, something is better than nothing. But I struggle with being consistent…does anyone else have that problem – and if so – any tips? My friend S and I are thinking of signing up for an exercise class once a week, to get
us into a healthier pattern. An Orange Theory Fitness recently opened up in our neighbourhood – so we may give that a try!

But for now – I’m mainly wearing my fitness gear while running errands. And I know I’m not the only one…there’s something about athletic wear that makes you feel like you can get a lot done! My outfit is head-to-toe from Marks Canada – did you know that they carried Adidas, Reebok, Nike and Shambala?

Everyone needs a cozy sweatshirt for the Fall – and this fleece-lined pullover from Reebok is SO soft! For an everyday athleisure look, it could also be paired with a leather jacket, distressed jeans and canvas tennis shoes. These Adidas tights are light and stretchy – they’re great for running errands – and would look cute with a grey tank – for when I actually decide to work out! The composition is 92% cotton, so it’s very breathable and comfortable to wear.

As for these Adidas Solyx Running Shoes – it really does feel like you’re walking on a cloud  – their cushioned inner lining is called Cloudfoam midsole for a reason! They’re made of a stretchy mesh fabric so they’re very breathable and prevent your feet from over-heating. They also look SUPER cool – in fact, my son tried to claim they were his (um…his feet are still tiny compared to mine LOL!)

By the way – how do you feel about brand-mixing when wearing logo-ed
athletic gear? I tend to just pick out what I like (thus the Reebok/Adidas combo) – but hubby seems to
think it’s a faux pas!

    i do exercise on a regular basis (4-5 times a week). I also work full time and am a mom. They key for me is to find an exercise you enjoy. If you don't like it, you won't keep it up. I run (outside, I hate running on treadmills), practice yoga (I enjoy hot power classes), train with kettle bells and also started lifting heavy in June using Strong Lift. I feel so much better mentally and physically when I exercise. I suggest signing up for a gym that offers different classes to see what you like. This is what I did back in the day when I first started.

      Thanks for the tips – I definitely haven’t found the activity yet that I truly enjoy so I’ll try a bunch out!

    Such a cute outfit! I’ve just gotten back in the workout routine. Drop the kids off to school, hit the gym. It does take dedication but I try to go at least 4-5 times a week just to force it into a habit. I need to lose those extra pounds I’ve gained! I’m always mixing my athletic brands! Wear what you like. Adidas pants and Nike sweaters. My go to outfits!
