I truly cannot believe that I’m letting you guys see what I look like post–Soul Cycle, but here it is. No makeup, no shower, sweaty hair (hence the hat), and sweaty clothes, too. How pleasant. 🙂
Over the last year, working out has become my “me time.” And as we’re heading into 2014 (How the f*ck is it mid-January already?), I’ve been putting an even bigger emphasis on staying fit and eating healthy. I know I’m definitely drinking the Soul Cycle kool-aid, but hear me out — Soul Cycle has honestly changed my entire thought process about working out. I now view my workouts, whether they are at Soul Cycle or not, as the only part of my day where I can zone out, listen to music, and truly unplug. And I don’t feel guilty about it either. It’s a win, win.
I’ve said it so many times, but cute workout clothes and shoes can be great for that little extra push of motivation. Old Navy has a bunch of cute gear on sale right now, too! My other little gym secret? Take down your ponytail after your workout and toss on a hat and sunglasses. If your hair is sopping wet, blast your roots with the blowdryer for a minute. Errands, brunch, you name it… It’s all possible if you have a hat on. Trust me, I did it both days last weekend. 😉
