Note: I received gift cards from Kohl’s to facilitate my post. All opinions are honest and my own.
I have a confession to make.
I’m pretty unoriginal with my New Year’s resolutions.
But, so far, I’m also pretty successful at keeping my resolution this year – so I guess in that way I’m fairly unique!
My resolution this year is to be healthier, which includes eating better and exercising more. I’ve tried this in the past and didn’t last long, but this time around I’m taking added steps to make sure I’m successful. I’ve found an app to help me track both calories consumed and burned; I’ve got an accountability partner (my husband – so convenient! And so amazingly awesome of him to agree to work out with me each night); and I’ve got the gear I need, thanks to Kohl’s.
I shop at Kohl’s pretty frequently for clothes, shoes, accessories, toys, and kitchen items. You probably do, too. But did you know Kohl’s has a pretty impressive line-up of items to help you live a healthier life?
There are a ton of options for workout gear – I personally think it’s a morale-builder to work out in something you feel attractive in; and if you feel attractive, you’re more likely to want to wear those clothes and work out in them. Whether you’re a gym rat or you like to walk around your neighborhood, there’s attire for you.
Good shoes are crucial, and Kohl’s has plenty of those to pick from, too.
Don’t forget some headphones to listen to music while you work out!
They even have socks that wick away sweat, and I think we can all agree that’s a very good thing.
Beyond clothing, though, there’s all sorts of exercise equipment, from weights to kettlebells to yoga blocks and more.
And since you’ll be working up a sweat, you’ll want to make sure and stay hydrated. Kohl’s has got you covered there, too:
Of course, exercising is just part of living a healthier life. It’s important to make good choices with what you eat, too. There are a ton of kitchen gadgets on the market that make it fun and easy to eat healthy, and Kohl’s offers a wide variety to choose from. There were two items in particular I looked at – the Nutribullet Pro (how easy would it be to make smoothies with this?):
You can make your own “noodles” out of veggies – too cool! This would be a really fun way to give kids veggies, by the way. Or to lower your carb intake when it’s Italian night!
I decided to get something to help keep me accountable – a Fitbit Flex.
It’s been really great at motivating me to want to fit in as many steps as possible – and we got one for Brian, too, so we can challenge and encourage each other to stay active! Our Kohl’s had a kiosk right by the jewelry counter with the Fitbit Flex, Charge, Charge HR and Aria scale.
If you were thinking about making a resolution to live healthier, it’s not too late to start! It’s better to start a little later than not at all. Stop by Kohl’s and have a little healthy-living shopping spree. Get yourself shoes and workout clothes; find a DVD you can do right in your living room and grab a blender for smoothies in the morning. And if you get a Fitbit let me know so we can be friends and encourage each other!
