Motivation/ Products & Gear

All It Took Was Some New Gear

As many of you know, I’ve been struggling with my fitness/healthy eating motivation for about a month. After the duathlon in early September I fell off the wagon. Yes – even I stumble. More than I care to admit – this blog is as much for motivating me as it is for you.

Thankfully this week I finally found my mojo – it came in a sweet “little” package from my favourite sporting goods store: SportChek. Check out what they sent me:


Heyo! Look at all of that great gear!


New SHOES folks! Remember these old runners that I’ve been complaining about?

Well I checked my Nike+ stats and apparently they have about 1200km’s on them. I was starting to get injured from wearing them – now I know why! I was so thankful to see new shoes in my box of goodies from SportChek – with these new bad boys I can really find #mybetter. THANK YOU SO MUCH SPORTCHEK!!! I’m defintiely going to be doing a triathlon next summer ’cause my latest side gig is volunteering with the Ontario Women’s Triathlon to help them with their social media promotion, so all of this stuff will help me with me training.

In fact it already has. This week I’ve run twice already (and I’ll be running again this morning), and went to a spinning class.


I also used the gift card to invest in this Bob Harper Kettlebell and Kettlebell DVD:

I did that workout once and greatly enjoyed it, though my legs and core were not happy with me the next day 🙂 All in all this week I’ve been back on the wagon and man – it feels great!!

Thank you for helping my find #mybetter SportChek!

What new piece of workout gear would help you with your mojo?

    What I really need is to move out of an apartment so I can use my jump rope, my mini trampoline and my fitness DVDs without angering downstairs neighbors!

    I completely know where you’re coming from. It’s pretty funny how motivating a new piece of exercise equipment can be. Anything that will offer a new challenge whether it be extrinsically or intrinsically, if it’s something that will help get you through the fitness & health dog days then its all good.
