Towards the end of 2017, I really slipped when it came to fitness. I spent the majority of November eating, drinking, socialising, working, and going to bed late, and boy was it a fun couple of months!

However, when you’re keen on working out and usually have the gym as a big part of your life, it’s inevitable that you’ll always carry that guilt around. I went into 2018 stressing about being unhealthy in general, my skin had also gone dull and spotty from copious amounts of fizz and party food, and I just felt like a sluggish potato.

I made a pact with myself in January – just a small one, not a new years resolution or anything – to pick it all back up for the new year. And you know what, I’ve really impressed myself!

The first thing I did sounds a little silly, but I invested in new gym wear. I know I know, you don’t need to wear fancy outfits just to excel at the gym, and it’s definitely all about your mental attitude and strength rather than how good you look at the gym.

But, have you ever noticed how much more motivated and hyped up you are for a gym visit when dressed in new sports wear? I for know that when I’ve been working out a little more, have been focusing on a healthier lifestyle, and genuinely feel better about myself, I feel 10 times more fabulous rocking up to the gym feeling like I’ve worked hard to improve myself, and I’m wearing shiny new gym wear too.

Maybe it’s a simple mind over matter thing, but it’s a little trick which has worked for me anyway!

So I’ve managed to get a few new sassy gym outfits behind me, including the hoody top from Tokyo Laundry from my first two photos, and this cute sports bra and printed workout leggings with pockets from the above too. But how else have I managed to get my ‘gym mojo’ back?
