I’m doing good this January! As you know, I’m still sticking to my plan of going running twice a week, and still walking to and fom work as much as possible. It’s hard sometimes, epspecially when the weather isn’t at its best. Luckily, I was contacted by Workwear Express to see if I would like to take part in their #WEFitnessGoals campaign, to help me stay on track, and I thought it was a good idea. January is probably the month when most people start their new healthy lives, but at the same time, the month when all New Year’s resolutions fizzle out if goals hasn’t already been met.
The other week, I received their fitness kit* which included lots of encouraging products to keep me going.
The kit included a motivational printed hoody, a small towel, a water bottle, a pad lock, healthy snack from nakd and a notepad helping to plan healthy food purchases. It’s the perfect kit for gym goers and receiving it, I think I should sign up again so that I can get going with my goal of toning up.
The notepad is definitely something I’ll make use of, as I’m crap remembering what I need to buy and how to plan ahead! I end up going to the shops more than once a week, giving myself too many opportunities to also buy snacks, like crisps and chocolates. Speaking of snacks, I’ve recently tried out a few of nakd’s snack packs and bars, including these salted caramel nibbles, and all of them have tasted lovely. I feel extra healthy eating vegan snacks and I hope these and similar snacks will replace my urge to buy chocolate.
The #WEFitnessGoals Hoody
The hoody is so comfortable. I first thought it would be too tight when I held it up and clearly saw it didn’t look as big as I expect and L to be. It’s not as big as I would have thought but it fits, so I don’t mind but sometimes hoodies are nice when they’re a bit bigger.
I brought it with me to Sweden and it was perfect to dress up in for a long winter walk. My mum was kind enough to snap a few photos of me wearing it, for you to see how it looks and also to see how lovely my hometown’s winter surroundings make lovely picture backgrounds.
I mentioned in a previous post that I like motivational quotes on activewear so I was excited to see what this hoody would come with. It says “She believed she could, so she did” and I like it! It’s straight to the point, and not too cheesy. I’m so happy the #WEFitnessGoals team picked out a black hoody for me, they know me well or it was a lucky guess. I’ll be wearing this on colder days and also as pre and after exercise gear. A cute little detail is that it has my blog URL on the back, so I always know it’s mine.
What do you do to stay motivational and stick to your New Year’s resolutions? Have you got any products to help you? Would a hoody with a motivational quote help?
