One thing I’ve noticed over the years is that when I surround myself with people who have similar goals as I do, I flourish. It sounds obvious, but taking a step back and evaluating who has a positive impact on my goals has been important. I’m not a super competitive person with others, but rather like to improve in comparison to myself. Having a like-minded, supportive group around me is especially important when it comes to staying on track with a balanced lifestyle.  I wanted my biggest supporter to be in today’s blog post on the importance of finding a support system for healthy living. We’re also both rounding up our favorite work out gear for both men and women at the bottom of this post!

Having a significant other who is active and values a healthy lifestyle is so helpful for me to stay on track. Whether you’re married or dating someone, or even have a support system in a roommate, friend, or family member, I think that it is essential to staying motivated. Even if your support system is a furry friend, they also need exercise, so having them around to motivate you to get out and get moving can be helpful! On days when I’m feeling a little unmotivated, I’ll be much more likely to head to the park for a walk or run if my husband is taking our dog. It’s also much easier to balance out our eating.

I’m all about enjoying and splurges, but I also need those around me who support healthier choices like eating good and staying active. I’m sort of an all or nothing person, so I’m either eating healthy during the week and working out, or I’m having one too many pieces of pizza. While I’m certainly strong willed, I will do better with fewer temptations and a little push from someone else here or there. My husband and I tend to eat pretty healthy during the week and then splurge on the weekends. If I was trying to be healthy on a weeknight and Charles came home with pizza one night, it would be much harder to say no and stay on track. We can encourage and motivate one another just by making better choices for ourselves!

If you haven’t, try taking a step back and see who encourages you in your life to do better. Some friends may encourage you with your work and others with health and fitness, but ensure you’re surrounding yourself with those that push you, will be honest with you, and will help you become a better version of yourself. If you don’t have a support system for working out, I would definitely recommend finding one– it is truly so helpful! I not only have my husband to motivate me, but several friends and of course, my four legged bestie, Maddie.

As I am sure you all have noticed, Nordstrom is my go to department store. I’m obsessed with their online ordering because you can shop what your closest store has and then either pick up in store or even have it delivered same day to your house. Something about new workout gear just motivates me to try new workouts or get into the gym when I may not be feelin it. Being able to order online and then pick it up that day is so amazing when I need a little extra push! It is also my husband’s go to store because of all the great brands and options they have. We aren’t stuck with just one or two brands and there are things in every price range!

Below I’ve rounded up more men’s workout gear. These are all of my husband and I’s current favorite pieces. To shop any of the items below, just click on the photo and you’ll be taken to the product’s page.

Now for the ladies. I live in athleisure clothing on chill days. I find that if I wear it I’m more likely to be active that day or get a work out in. I love how cute everything has gotten over the past few years. Some of these leggings look adorable with a tshirt and a moto jacket with sneakers. I’ve rounded up my current favorite athleisure tops, pants, and shoes from Nordstrom right now.

I recently switched to morning workouts during the week. If you’re needing a little motivation to get up early and get your workouts over with. Check out this post for all the reasons I love getting my workouts done first thing and the benefits of it! I’m really glad Charles doesn’t get mad when my alarm clock goes off at 5AM every week day.

I hope you all had a fun weekend whatever you did! Mine was pretty low key and productive. We have a busy week ahead because we are moving, so I wanted to relax, catch up on sleep, and get some work done so that this week wasn’t so stressful. I’m a little bummed about the Cowboys game yesterday, but did have fun watching it at a fun outside bar here in Dallas. Hope you have a great Monday! XO
