Tell you what, after months away from running, starting again was hard!  I went jogging (okay, jog a block, walk a block) yesterday and now I hurt EVERYWHERE!  But still, I am motivated to get my pre-pregnancy body back.

To add even more motivation, I went shopping today :O) 

Though today's shopping trip was purposely for workout clothes, it still left me in a bliss!

Here are some items I bought that (hopefully) will motivate myself to start exercising:

Capris (from Old Navy)

Long tank (by North face)

Sports bra (by Champion)

A breathable jacket (by Champion)

And here I am, in my new gear, ready to roll!

Nothing feels better than retail therapy, and NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING motivates me to exercise than getting some new sporty workout clothes!


  1. Good for you! Keep up the good work. You look great anyhow but a bit of exercise helps tone your body. I "used to" exercise everyday but I have stopped for a few months. I still haven't find the motivations to get back to exercising. Maybe I need to go shopping :)

  2. Yay for getting back into running! Once you get over the initial soreness, which can last a week or more sometimes, you will be running like the wind! I think in the meantime you should still walk and jog, that's the best way to get rid of the soreness. Be sure to stretch a lot too!

    Your new workout clothes are so cute, I don't know if you like Under Armour but their things are really comfortable to run in, perfect for when you are expected to sweat a lot.

  3. Buying new workout clothes always gets me out there and running! :)

  12. It's true - I don't ever want to work out when I know that I have old paint-splattered t-shirts and cheap shorts.
