Soooooo….. we did it. Rob and I joined a gym. Truly and honestly I was reluctant; I’ve never been great about working out consistently. I just find it kind of boring… I love taking group classes but when I’m in there by myself I find my mind drifting off to Never Neverland again. I played a ton of team sports from the 3rd grade until I finished high school so that had always been my method of staying fit and I think there’s something to be said about that – I love the motivation others give you to keep going.
Luckily, Crunch Gym (where we joined) has this awesome deal where whatever package you get, you can bring a guest with you every time, and can use whatever facilities/amenities that your package includes. Friggin’ sweet, right?! I’ll be taking a few of my girlfriends with me so they can hold me accountable!
Another thing that helps motivate me: cute gym gear. I feel this way about stationary – if I have cute supplies I’m much more likely to do work! If I have something cute to wear to the gym, I’ll want to put it to good use.
Here are a few things on my Gym Gear Wishlist…
#1 – Spiritual Gangster ‘Good Vibes’ Muscle Tank
#2 – Nike Women’s Air Max Thea Running Sneakers from Finish Line
#3 – Kiehl’s Since 1851 Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant Cream (1.7 oz.)
#4 – Nike Internationalist Suede
#5 – Nike Gym Vintage Full-Zip Hoodie
#6 – Nike ‘Gym Vintage’ Capri Sweatpants

If there’s something else that I don’t have on my list that you swear by for staying motivated at the gym or is a life saver when sweating up a storm, please share!
