How many of us have a fitness goal on our resolutions list this year? I always have some kind of health resolution – whether it’s trying different eating habits, exercising more or drinking more water – you know the drill.

I know everyone feels differently about resolutions. Some love them, others not so much. I find it hard to remember them quite frankly, so I usually set little “January challenges” instead.  Last January I went vegan (and documented the journey weekly here, here, here and here) and actually ended up eating around 80% vegetarian in 2018. That surprised both Christian and myself!  Yesterday I recapped some of my favorite CBL posts to keep you motivated through the month here.

This year I’ve set a challenge to exercise at least 20 minutes every day unless I’ve walked 3.5+ miles that day (which could get me off the hook on Saturdays and Sundays if I’m adventurous enough!).  There’s nothing that gets me more excited about fitness than adding some fresh workout clothes to my closet, and you absolutely can’t beat the prices and patterns at Old Navy.

I recently bought this marled hoodie and absolutely love it for lounging around the house, but I wanted to get some leggings and sports bras for my pilates and yoga classes.  I fell in love with the big floral patterns they have right now like these and these, and some even have matching sports bras!

Do you have any fitness goals for January? I would love to hear! I plan to keep up with mine on Instagram and insta-stories so if you want someone to keep you accountable… I’m your girl.

And if you don’t have the time to go to the gym or pay for an expensive class – I hear you. If I know a workout is going to take a lot of time out of my day, I’m not going to make it. I usually exercise at home and I’ve shared some of my favorite at-home workouts here!

Thank you so much for reading! XO –

  1. These pictures are amazing. I love the print of the leggings and the sports bra is so cute!!

  2. Hi! My goal is also to workout daily or a minimum of 6 days of the week! I have been doing Tone It Up workouts in my room every morning! I usually do between 13-30 minutes & then make sure to walk my dog at least for 10 minutes. Today was definitely one of those days where I almost didn’t do it but so happy for sticking through it!

  3. For January specifically I am doing a 30 days yoga challenge with Yoga by Adrienne (love her!). I’m also taking reformer pilates classes 4x a month. I’ve been going to this studio since September and really enjoy the classes. It also makes me want to workout at home. Then for the year I want to do yoga or pilates 3-4 times a week and move more while I’m at work.

  4. Old Navy is my absolute fave for workout clothes. I’ve had tons of their stuff for years – the fit & quality is great and the patterns are always fun. I haven’t found any need to spend big money on higher end brands. Thanks for highlighting their new patterns – so cute!

  5. I completely agree with you and try to set a health goal as well. This year I set a January challenge and am doing 30 days with Adriene because I’ve been wanting to get more time on the mat. So far, it’s working! Good luck with your challenge!

  6. Yes yes yes to fitness and goals in 2019. First, I love this floral print from Old Navy. So fun and I’m the same way. If I have nice workout gear then I’m more inclined to get up and go to the gym. And Bailey is a star, love her so much!

  7. I love that your challenge is simple and attainable! I feel like we should all strive for that to be successful with our fitness goals. Since moving to SF and acquiring the mirror, has your routine changed dramatically?

    Hey! I realize this is fairly off subject yet I was pondering which blog stage would you say you are utilizing for this webpage? I’m becoming weary of WordPress in light of the fact that I’ve had issues with programmers and I’m taking a gander at alternatives for another platform.I would be phenomenal in the event that you could point me toward a decent stage.
