Anyone else a sucker for Monday morning resolutions? No more alcoholic drinks until Friday night. No more sugar or junk food. Will work out every day. Sound familiar? I actually love Monday mornings. I can’t get to the gym over the weekend and am only able to work out when the kids are at school / day care which is Monday – Friday. I definitely don’t exercise all 5 days but having that little bit of freedom each morning is heaven for my sanity.
Last week I picked up some new activewear from Forever 21 and have since been busting to work out. I’m sure most of you can agree that having new clothes or shoes is the ultimate motivation to get your butt into the gym. I am usually a purist when it comes to my activewear. You know, Nike, Adidas, lululemon, Lorna Jane etc. Lots of fashion brands have added a sportswear line to their collections over the last few years but Ive always been a bit dubious of the quality. However with only two gym outfits with me in India and a constant debate regarding our water supply, I decided to bite the bullet and just get a few pieces to see me through until the end of the year.
Well I think I’m officially a convert. At least with Forever 21. The quality is amazing, the fit is true to size and although I’ve only worn and washed it once, so far there are no complaints there either. Obviously in India I wouldn’t wear the crop top by itself but in Australia I would definitely feel comfortable thanks to it’s support and coverage. The sleeveless hoodie is a bit of a fashion addition for me, but it would be great for morning walks or post gym coffee’s too.
So what kind of Monday Morning resolutions do you guys make? Any tips to sticking with them ;)? Hope you all have a great week xx
Please note – the Forever 21 website is currently down so I’ve sourced similar products from Cotton On Body and linked them above. The Cotton On Body range is at a similar price point and although I’ve only worn a few items, I think the quality is quite similar too.
