    I love these ideas, and am definitally going to try a few more to motivate my gym routine. I certainly agree with you about getting new, pretty clothes as a motivational thing. I love the Old Navy clothes that you are wearing here, but all of their stuff is sold out in my size or completely! Do you have any other recommendations on where to get affordable workout gear?

    Thank you for this post! I only just got out of the Christmas holiday funk and started to really push myself when working out again, but today I could really feel it (from yesterday) and it made me think of how only a week or two and I feel like I’m back to square one! Haha.

    I like doing #1 and #5. Currently my favorite workout playlist is Pop and Hip Hop Radio on Pandora.

    I love all of your ideas to get motivated to workout! I know they work because I do some of them! I make playlists, find new workouts (on pinterest!!!) and finding cute new workout clothes! Something I love doing is if it is a bike or elliptical day I will put on netflix while I workout, the time flies by! Another way I get motivated is setting goals for myself. I have always done this but recently I have found one that has really got me motivated! I have been in the gym 6/7 days a week! I hope I stick to it! If not, I will be coming back to our awesome list for advice!
