It's time for a January check in! How are your fitness goals going so far this month? I'm always trying to get pilates on the schedule as much as I can and even in the winter I'm trying to get out for daily walks. But these cold and grey days don't make it easy! I'm the first to confess. I will say having some new leggings and sports bras in the mix always make working out more fun. I always try to set out workout clothes for the next day before I go to bed. Whether it's lots of layers for an outdoor walk, my favorite legging and sports bra combo for pilates or a tennis skirt and tank, when I see it sitting on my dresser when I wake up, it makes it easier to just put on and go do the workout. It's the visual reminder (read: guilt trip) that usually does the trick for me in the morning. 

Having new gear always helps to lean into my workouts and gives me that small push I need in the winter to keep these small promises to myself. A new pair of leggings in January is the equivalent to some freshly sharpened pencils in the fall, you know? It just feels so good! I've been wearing and loving the Athleta Powervita pieces for years. I just adore the ultra soft compression that looks and feels SO good on the body. Athleta is all about empowering women no matter what your workout style is... from fierce cardio sessions, to gentle studio classes and everything in between. Their pieces are up for the challenge. Their Ultra High-Rise Elation 7/8 Tight have been my go-to legging for years. You can't beat how soft and comfortable these leggings are, I wear them for everything from walks to tennis - they stay put and feel fantastic against the skin. Here I paired them with the Conscious Crop Bra. Lately I've been obsessed with the longline bra, I find them to be so comfortable and I love that this bra paired with the high waist leggings they have great coverage without being bulky. The Whisper Featherless Puffer Jacket is the perfect pre- and post-workout topper. I love that it's warm but not bulky and the quilted material and tall collar make it look perfectly polished for leaving the gym and running errands in style. 

Other new items I have my eye on at Athleta right now are the Venice Mid-Rise Jogger (so many color options!),  the Ascent Seamless Turtleneck (would be great for layering for outdoor walks!) and the Seasoft Bubble Hem Hoodie (this looks incredibly cozy!)
