Spring into Spring……Fitness Edit.
New Year, New You. How’s that working out for you? Be honest, it didn’t work did it?
Ok, you did go to the gym a few times, granted, ok, you did cut out bread for that fortnight…etc. But let’s face it, it was too cold, too dark, you were too ill and all the other things that generally inhibit us from sticking to those resolutions we make for New Year.
Personally, the grey dark skies or raging winds do not motivate me to hit the gym, or the diet, it makes me feel like getting in front of the fire with comfort food and bad for me biscuits whilst watching the first descent TV we’ve had in ages let’s face it, oh and the takeaways…heaven! Damn you Just Eat, the fact even in deepest darkest rural England I can have takeaway delivered is good, but bad, but oh so good!
However, as the mercury begins to rise, as we have the odd Sunny day, where it’s crisp and you feel motivated enough to take a Sunday stroll after lunch , those rays of sunshine, a hint of better days to come, now that’s motivation. Suddenly, the biscuits aren’t all that, I’ve probably bored myself of them by having too many, the thought of a lighter meal at dinner time doesn’t sound so crazy, the thought of the holidays you’re about to book, Spring Break, Summer Holiday are looming ever close, NOW is the time to get your freak on, get your fit on, get up, get out, get motivated. Besides, all those bloody celebrity instagram pictures….in work out gear, well, you can do that too can’t you? I mean, you don’t see shots of celebs traipsing to the gym with wet hair, soaked in the rain, ravaged by the wind on a cold stormy night often do you, no, sunny glamorous shots in they’re next to nothing wear by a beach, or a pool (probably their own) looking hot for their even hotter holiday they’re about to jet off to in St Barts, or Barbados. What’s worse is half of those shots of them being motivated from the beach or in-villa gym in Barbados, Mauritius and beyond.
Well we can all feel motivated with the threat of sunshine can’t we? So, here we go, it’s officially Spring, so time to suck it up, step it up and get your game on. Ok, so they’re still forecasting snow in old blighty, never the less, it’s spring, the Daffodils are out and with our unpredictable weather the sun will be catching you out shortly like a celebrity putting the rubbish out forgetting to fix up before getting papped. Its time to up our game. Thank God for the high street.
Pretty much all of the major retailers have ventured into the work out range wear, many are celebrity collaborations, so we’ve no excuse to have nothing to wear, because it is basically fashion right now, are you so out of fashion? No, that’s right, we all like a reason to shop, so springing in to spring is our motivation so we can style it in summer. Here are the best of those high street work out ranges right now, and remember, active wear, you can wear…., is also a thing right now. Enjoy.
