Everyone knows that after all the sweets and parties over the Holidays, January is the time to get back on track and feel healthy again. For those of you who read our New Year’s Resolutions, you know that W and I are working to get toned this year before we walk down the isle. The first step to that… working out. W and I will be running a half marathon along with 4 of our best friends. So here it goes, our shameless plug: we are raising money for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a philanthropy we all hold close to our hearts. The race is in 2 weeks, so the clock is ticking… We need help raising money for this amazing organization. If you are at all interested in helping out, we’d more than appreciative. Every little bit counts. Click here to donate.
On that note, to making working out more fun, I always like to start with some cute workout clothes. Here are some of my favorites ON SALE right now. You can look cute and get a great deal too.
What are you wearing for your workouts this season?
Try not to drool…
