About Face: Getting back into the exercise groove with beauty essentials

ExerciseEssentialsPost ChesapeakeFamilyAboutFaceGetting back into the gym after what feels like ages—or, well, two or three years—is an unbelievably daunting task. But I’m trying to motivate myself with some face and body items—from brands like L’Oreal, Dove, and Lumene—as well as cute exercise gear from Zumba Fitness that can help make my workout complete.

I really, really hate the gym, but I hate how my body looks right now more than that. I was a pretty regular gym-goer back in college, but two years of working full time and two years of working full time plus graduate school full time later, my body is definitely not what it once was. And sad-eating about how I miss my old body doesn’t really help anything—it’s a vicious cycle fueled by nacho cheese and ice cream, and I have to get out of it.

So getting myself back into the gym this fall is a real priority for me. I tried to do so this summer, but starting a new job wasn’t really conducive to that—and I used that as an excuse, too. But now, no more excuses. I have to get back in there! And if I’m going to tempt myself with a new beauty routine, then so be it.

Because yes, I’m going down that road: incorporating new face and body beauty items into my routine, but only if I make it to the gym that day. So for this list, I’ve picked items I’m really curious about using, that I want to try out, so I’ll be motivated to go to the gym first. That may seem a little roundabout, but I’m thinking it’s better than eating yet another pint of Ben and Jerry’s on the couch, you know?

So what’s on my list of beauty products to get myself back into the gym groove? For my exercise essentials, read on!
