We’re sad the holidays are over (who’s with us?), but one thing we are excited about is a clean slate in the new year! It’s always refreshing to feel like you can “restart” anything you want once January rolls around. You guys might have seen on snapchat that we’re planning to dive into the new year and get a jump start on our health/fitness for 2017 with a major diet overhaul (more on that in the new year).
One thing that is so important for us is staying active in our everyday lives (especially on those days where we don’t have time to get to the gym). Lately, we haven’t been the best with getting our workouts in, but we’ve both been spending more time outdoors with our families – going for walks and taking our kids to the park.
It’s good to spend quality time (off the phone/sofa) with family, and getting outdoors is seriously refreshing – you’re working out without even realizing it. There are honestly so many benefits of squeezing in even a 10-minute walk each day – it reduces stress, improves heart health, burns calories, and eases anxiety/depression.
Both of us spend most of our days (if we’re being honest) in sports wear – we need to be comfortable while chasing our kids around all day, but we still want to look put together. We both picked out some new pieces from Outdoor Voices and are obsessed with their simple (and really well made) gear! These leggings (wearing a small) are so flattering & comfortable and I love the design on the leg. I have this pair (in the gray combo) in my cart, ahhh they are so good! This tank (wearing a small) is a staple piece (just ordered it in the black and white also) that I have been wearing non-stop. It’s perfect for the gym, running errands, and even with jeans and a cardigan – I loove it! I picked out a few things for my hubs for Christmas – he loves this hoodie and these joggers (I love these too!).
We have been going on so many walks to explore our new neighborhood in Dallas. I love that we don’t have to get bundled up and can still wear light layers. I’m pretty obsessed with the two-tone grey on these leggings (seriously my favorite color). My closet is full of basic leggings (plain grey, black, etc.) so I was excited to see something a little different! I have the same pair Brooke is wearing in my cart (great minds!) and I’m also eyeing this long sleeve. I need want some new gear to get me motivated to get back in the gym!
Kyle is just like me and lovesss his comfy pants (well, who doesn’t?). I couldn’t resist getting him this grey pair to match me and Cam 😉 They are perfect for walks, hikes, running errands, or just lounging around the house. I’m thinking about getting them in charcoal because he loves them so much!
What are you planning to focus on in the new year? Have you made any resolutions? We’d love to hear! xx
