But I’m determined to make myself a priority and clean up my eating and increase how much I move.
The other day I took inventory of my workout clothes, and I noticed that they were in pretty sad shape. Most items are many years old and have been washed over and over. Some are faded, some don’t fit quite right, others have pilling and feel “rough.” I also realized I needed new shoes as I had been walking way too many miles in the ones I was wearing.
Wearing items that don’t make you feel your best can be a way of self-sabotage as you can feel like never going out and exercising. On the other hand, when you feel good in your clothes, you think you can do anything, and you can! I was therefore very happy when Chadwicks of Boston offered to provide me with some workout clothes from their clearance section*.
I picked a thin Cowl Neck Pullover in a pretty shade of blue, printed leggings, and Lightweight Slip-Ons by Skechers. The entire outfit is currently on sale for under $100. Plus, my readers can get an additional 20% off with Code CH64087 (good until 1/15/17).
I love my new workout outfit. The leggings have a nice amount of stretch as well as a tummy control panel that really holds you in, yet they are comfortable. The pullover is lightweight and feels very nice on the skin. Finally, the Slip-Ons by Skechers are the most comfortable walking shoes I’ve ever owned. They have memory foam that feels like you are walking on clouds. The first day I wore them, I walked over 10,000 steps and was raving at the end of the day how great my feet felt. My son commented that he had previously owned shoes by Skechers with memory foam, and that he really missed them and the memory foam. I can see why!
During our family workout at a local park, it felt good to move, and I felt good in my skin and my clothes.
I also wore the outfit when we went hiking at some nearby trails and felt put together enough to quickly stop by the grocery store on our way home.

Questions: Has the new year motived you to eat better and move a bit more? Are you happy with your workout clothes? What items in your wardrobe are just a bit too worn and should be replaced? Are there any items you’ve been thinking of adding to your closet? I’m thinking of adding the following basics from the clearance section, which I know I’ll own and enjoy for years, to my wardrobe: boyfriend cardigan, ribbed turtleneck, and a lightweight houndstooth scarf.
