I always consider setting lofty resolutions for myself each year, but I think I've finally come to terms that smallish goals pave the foundation for much bigger goals.
In the case of 2014, I just want to continue a few things that I somehow managed to keep up since…August, I think. Like trying to go on a run almost every day. On December 31, I completed my first 5k with my mother-in-law and Clay. Granted, we totally didn't run the entire time, but my little self was inwardly bursting with pride when I crossed the finish line. Maybe the next time I do a 5k, I'll run for real.
A few days ago I decided to ditch my frumpy workout gear for a look that looks like I have it all a little more together. You know, the look that nonchalantly flips her ponytail while saying, "I so know what I'm doing, and I can last for 17 miles!" << (we'll keep it between us that I can barely last a mile without losing it).
Credit: I own and photographed all products above.
1: Remember those bright Nikes?
3. My ears would freeze without this head wrap thing. You can find one at a store like Academy or Walmart.
4. My mother-in-law saw this waistband that I could stuff my phone in and surprised me with it. Beats running without any chance of communication!
5. I got this stretchy top at Ross, I think. Keep an eye out at that store, and you'll snag one for about $5.
6. This is the best sports bra I've ever owned. Granted, not the prettiest thing in the world, but oh does it support you like no other. This one is Lily of France.
7. Gotta sport old colleges past! Clay bought this for me when we were still dating. I was gradually turning into an icicle in ACU's library while Clay was in class when I was in Abilene visiting him and my family, so he bought this sweater for me just so I wouldn't be cold anymore. That little sweetie. So even though I'm a Red Raider for life, there will always be a bit of Wildcat on me.
8. I'll be crestfallen the day leggings go out of style. These workout pants (bought at T.J.Maxx) make me happier than you could imagine.
What are your plans for the new year?
