This is a sponsored post – SweatPink Ambassadors partnered with Actio926 and was given a workout outfit and compensation for this post. All opinions, thoughts and content are my own.
Well 2015 is OFFICIALLY under way! Can you believe it?!?!
This year I am taking Fit Approach’s advice and taking a NO EXCUSES stand! No excuse to not eat clean, no excuse to not have time to be active… NO EXCUSES! And I want YOU to do the same!
Will you join me in the #noexcuses challenge? Of course you will because you are a ROCKSTAR!
So let’s chat workout clothes for a second, shall we?! We ALL know that you work out harder and longer when you are in comfy and cute attire. You can hold your yoga pose longer, your miles are faster and the weights are heavier. BOOM!
When I open up my drawer to grab a pair of yoga pants or running tights I can either choose between black or black… lol Seriously I have NO colored pants! So I thought “what the heck!”. I NEEEED some new pants! Actio 926 was awesome enough to allow a handful of SweatPink Ambassadors pick out a brand new outfit! YAY!
My pants are the Spin It 3/4 Legging in Solar Eclipse and my hooded top is the Partie Hoodie in Fog. So so so amazing! The pants are a tad snug – I ordered a small because that’s what I usually wear but they may be a bit too small for my booty! But the top fits snug and nice! I can’t wear anything under it (maybe a thin and tight tank top) but that’s ok! My advice is order your normal size but expect them to be fitting or order a size up and you will probably have a little more wiggle room.
There clothes really are amazing, though! High quality, durable and stylish! Owners Stephanie and Mike are natural born athletes who wanted a different kind of clothing line then what was already out there. Starting from scratch in their home, they started to create handcrafted clothes for active people. Actio 926 was BORN! I encourage you to check out their entire clothing line and see the difference! And if you are in the LA / Hollywood area you can check them out in person, too!
SO let’s get back to talking about NO EXCUSES. I get it… I am a mom, a wife, a work and stay at home gal… I wear many hats! But my health is vital so that I can keep up with life’s demands! That is why it is so important to fuel my body properly, to be active and show it self love! Here are some of my very own tips and mantras that I use when I feel excuses seep in:
Find what you enjoy doing and HAVE FUN with it! I have found that I love yoga and weight lifting and I am pumped up and excited to practice these activities. Tell me to do an hour on the elliptical and I will run the other way! Being active should not be torture so pick and choose activities you enjoy!
Everyone had to start somewhere!
Sometimes my ego gets in the way and tells me that I am not good enough. Will I look like a newbie? Will I do it wrong? Will I make a fool out of myself? Always remember that everyone started somewhere and somehow. Practice, practice, practice!
Create the time!
Ya… we are ALL busy! But you must make the decision to incorporate a healthy lifestyle and do some readjusting of your time. Mark it on your calendar. Set the date. Set the time. DO IT!
Mantras I use to keep me focused:
~ I have a strong, healthy body ~
~ I create my own happiness ~
~ My body is a temple and I feed it nutritious food ~
~ Nothing can stand in my way ~
~ I can do this ~
My biggest advise to anyone eating to start living a healthier life is you have to start slowly and make it personal. Dig deep and find your WHY!
