Over the weekend I wrote about my health and fitness plans for 2018 and it got me thinking about the things that might help with this – it’s always nice to have new gymwear to start the new year and I’ve lost enough weight now to warrant buying a few bits – I got some new running leggings not long ago but I am in need of new t-shirts/vest tops for the gym.
First up on my wish list is a new top or two for the gym – the ones I have at the moment are really much too big and I like the bright pink on this Adidas one.
Secondly, I really do need a new swimsuit, and I like the look of the Speedo ones – they are always well made and last so much better than the cheaper swimsuits you can get. I’m not sure what style I’ll go for as I do like the tankini style ones but might, instead opt for a more classic style. Either way, a new swimsuit is perfect for getting me back into the habit of going swimming because I’ll have to try it out!
I’m in desperate need of a new pair of trainers. We are lucky that there is a Reebok and Adidas factory store nearby and I really should pop in soon and replace my trainers. My running trainers are in good condition still as I look after them and only use them for running and the gym, but my everyday trainers are well past their best. I wear them a lot for chasing after the children when we are in the park or out walking so they do get a lot of use. I might wait though until the dryer weather is here before I get a new pair.
When I go to the gym at the moment I use the children’s drinks bottles, they both have Klean Kanteens and as much as I love those, they are a bit heavy for carrying when I run. These Citrus Zinger Sports bottles look perfect for taking when I am off out and I like the colours of them too – something bright and cheerful to keep the mood bright!
Finally, I have been making the most of a battered old bag for far too long – it’s a backpack that I am pretty sure I have had since my college days and it’s been fixed up and repaired so many times now. It’s done sturdy service but I think it’s about time I treated myself to a new one for when I head to the gym or pool. I like the Fjallraven bags – they come in some fab and funky colours and look to be perfect for popping my gym or swimming gear into.
