Alright, so I’m the first to admit that I am definitely not one of those girls who hits the gym 3x a week and loves the ‘surge’ that working out gives me. Between working my 9-5, running the blog, family life and just needing solo time, it’s usually pretty low on my priority list. So what do I do to keep myself motivated? New gym clothes 😉

It’s sad but it totally works. There’s nothing like a cute outfit to push me to get outside and go for a walk with Adam, take a hike in the warmer months or even drop into the gym for a run (ok, more like walk) on the treadmill. I’m super into the latest activewear collection –EXP Core – that hit Express. From compression leggings, to cute slogan tees (like this one) or cozy jackets, they’ve definitely designed a collection that make you want to get off your butt and get into the gym and even run some errands after in style 😉
