One of the most important things we can commit to during the holiday season has nothing to do with shopping, baking, hosting guests or decorating the house. It’s ourselves. Often we have a love/hate feeling this time of year and in our efforts to make it festive/memorable/happy/beautiful, we completely lose our balance. We pour all our energy out and forget to take any time for ourselves.
To stay sane (or at least saner) and keep the inner-grinch at bay, sticking to a regular workout routine is essential. Sure, it’s the busiest time of year, but the hours logged on your fitbit will payoff. You’ll sleep better, be less edgy, increase your metabolism and get that lovely hit of endorphins. Definitely worth the effort of pulling on spandex pants.
From Sweat to Street
As you exit the gym/yoga studio/great outdoors with a glow and flexed muscles, there will still be a list of things to do. I don’t know about you, but I hate flashing my spandex rear at anyone, anywhere at anytime. I’m a work in progress and like to cover my wobbly parts as best I can. So in the spirit of going from downward dog to downright chic, here are 7 street-worthy options for your post workout world.
Patagonia Better Sweater Coat $170, in Grey & Black
Athleta Hoodwink Tunic Sweater, $118 in Navy & Black
Title Nine Stevie Long Sweater, $178
Title Nine Assassin Sweater $179
Athleta Cozy Sochi Sweater $89, in Plum & Black
Ibex Back Bay Merino Tunic $180, in Black, Blue or Olive
Athleta Downalicious CYA Coat $228, in Black & Taupe
What I especially love about these pieces is that they’re not workout specific and can be worn any day of the week. They’d be pretty great as travel pieces too. Hope you have a bountiful Thanksgiving holiday. Feel free to eat as much turkey and pie as you want.
