Working on my
New Year’s resolutions
When I set up my blog, almost 7 years ago now, I choose to blog around clothes and dreams. Even though the dreams part isn’t that explicit anymore on the blog, I still work on my goals in real life. Remember I had a goals page in my bullet journal back in 2018? I’ve also had it in 2019 and – surprise surprise – this year as well. My biggest goal this year is to start running again. And this weekend I’ve taken my first step to get there by buying a new sports legging. 😀
You might wonder why I don’t just go outside and start running. Apparently every muscle below my waist isn’t trained well enough to run, which caused really bad knee pain whenever I try to take it up again. I used to run 10 kilometers and more on a weekly basis, but over a winter some years ago I took a few month’s break. And ever since then I would get knee pains.
Basically, I need to do some specific exercises (which I can do at home) and some strength exercises I need to do at the gym. Now, I’ve never been a gym person so that second part is verrrry difficult for me. Besides that I don’t feel comfortable anymore in my current sports wear. I was risking to get a gym subscription without going simply because I wouldn’t have the gear I feel comfortable in.
That’s why I’ve been on the lookout for a sports legging I could perfectly wear to the gym. And I’ve found it at Hunkemöller!
Why do I love this high waist sports leggings?
- It has pockets where my phone actually fits in without risking the pocket could burst every minute
- There’s a small pocket at the back where you can fit your keys in
- The print is super cool, and sits at the right place; there will be a slimming effect because of the side stripe
- The fit is a-ma-zing; I definitely love me some high waist leggings!
- They match my running shoes as well (!)
I’m definitely ready for part two of this goal, which is actually getting the gym subscription. 😀
Do you have goals for 2020?
