The holidays are coming. I’ve been talking about them almost every day on the blog because I cannot believe that it’s already almost Thanksgiving. Which means Christmas is just around the corner. And let’s be realistic, the holidays can be challenging. We’ve been working hard throughout the year – working out, making better choices with our food – and then…the holidays come. And cookies show up, then cocktails, then chocolates, then barrels of popcorn, plus all the travel and disrupt to our normal schedules. It messes with not only our diet and workouts, but our behaviors and daily choices.
But the holidays don’t have to hinder your progress. You can still enjoy the holidays and keep with your goals if you just plan ahead. Plan some of your meals, plan some of your snacks, and plans your workouts. Are you going to the middle of nowhere where there isn’t even a small gym in town? Not a problem – you got this!
Every Monday on the blog, I share a free workout you can do while traveling. And with the help of lululemon cold weather layers plus my travel workouts, you have no excuse not to workout while you’re gone for the holidays! These reflective deep green leggings keep you warm while keeping you insight no matter what time of day you are running!
More of My Favorite Leggings:
There are so many different movements you can do with only your bodyweight and no gym equipment. When we headed to the mountain the other day to get some photos, I decided to do a quick workout right by the beautiful lake! So I bundled up in my fitted jacket and headed out for a quick run to start my workout!
This jacket is lightweight, comes in a slim fit and has reflective details if you’re running at any point after 4pm nowadays. So you’re still able to move while you’re wearing it but can easily zip it off if you warm up at any point through your workout!
But my favorite part of this outfit is BY FAR this magenta long sleeve top. I have many of these long sleeve tops because they are so incredibly warm and perfect through winter, and they absolutely never go out of style! I wear this top at the gym, while running errands or walking the dog. It’s so warm but it’s breathable at the same time! So layering up with this top and the lightweight jacket was perfect for the first part of my workout before I started sweating my butt off!
