You may have seen in my 2018 goals post that I am going to continue to prioritize my health and fitness this year and so far, things have been going pretty well! I’m never sorry about getting to a workout class, even if I really have to motivate myself to leave my apartment. (Particularly when the weather has been so frigid!)
Over the years, I’ve come to realize that I am not above using cute, new workout gear as one of my motivating factors. So I thought a round up of some of my favorite items + a couple things I have my eye on would be the perfect first budget buys post of 2018! All items are under $100 this month which should make it even easier to give your active wear the perfect update for the new year.
I hope you guys had a good weekend! I largely spent mine recovering from my two-day migraine last week but was glad to be able to still be able to make it to some of the plans I had with friends. I also got in three workouts which felt like it was just what my body needed after two days of bed rest.
For today’s post I wanted to share a bit about my little staycation the other weekend! Upon signing on to do another project with dr. brandt, I decided to do so in a new setting as my bathroom isn’t the most photogenic. I originally figured I’d ask a hotel to shoot in a room for one hour but then decided “why not stay the night?” and so I booked a room at The Ludlow Hotel and the staycation ended up being exactly what I needed!
Despite it being the first full week of the year, it flew by. The best part of my week was taking my first French class at Coucou – I’m dusting off my French minor! And the low point was waking up with a migraine yesterday which kind of shot my whole day. I had to stay in bed for the first part of the day but finally peeled myself up around 1 and got some work done but felt pretty awful. I have a long history with headaches and used to get migraines far more frequently but despite that I still am always amazed at how much they can make you feel downright miserable.
This weekend I have a farewell for a friend moving back West, another friend in town from Boston and some workouts on my calendar. I will also be doing my French homework (!) and hopefully get in some downtime, too. What do you have planned!?
