staying balanced in 2013

December 31, 2012

Believe it or not, today marks the end of 2012. Whether this year was full of ups and downs (isn’t every year?) or slow and steady, I hope it was a good one for you. Although you will wake up tomorrow and feel the same, a brand new year will be upon us – hello 2013!

I have never been big on setting up lofty goals for myself in the new years. Maybe it’s because I know I’m human, I’ll break my goals, and then I’ll feel like a horrible person. However, one thing I know I will be doing is staying the healthiest I can be for me in 2013. Two years ago, being my healthiest meant I got up at 5 AM a few mornings a week to get my long runs in for my half marathon trainings. Last year, being my healthiest meant I took a long hiatus from running and exercise in general.

This upcoming year, it’s going to all be about balance. Balancing work and fitness, balancing family and grad school, balancing hobbies and required commitments. Most of all, however, I want to start focusing on fitness again. It was incredibly hard to give up something that defined me so much for the majority of last year, and don’t misinterpret this – I’m not saying right now is the right time to run a marathon or anything. But regularly working out gives me energy, makes me feel better, and well – I’m an overall happier person when doing it.

Right now, I’m a gym go-er for the most part. And let’s be honest – getting yourself motivated in the dead of winter is a particularly difficult thing to do. The thing that helps me out the most? Cute attire. There’s nothing like a new workout outfit to get me motivated to get my booty to the gym. Which is why I was so incredibly excited when PV.Body contacted me about a month ago to see if I wanted to try out their services.

If you’ve never heard about PV.Body before, let me break it break it down for you. They are a fitness clothing company that picks out and styles an exercise outfit for you, sends it to you for an UNGODLY low amount (seriously.), and happily listens to all of your wants and needs. These are high quality clothes too – outfits that you would find at a department or specialty store for $130. I’m sorry, but I am frugal. I like to keep my money for more important things (Starbucks?) if that means I have to wear ratty old workout clothes. Thankfully, PV.Body is the solution for people like you and me.

Here’s how the process works….

Pay $49.95 for your extremely discounted outfit

Here’s some other awesome parts about this – you will ALWAYS get free shipping and you will ALWAYS be able to return/exchange a product that you don’t like.

One question I was sure to ask P.V. Body was if you HAD to get an outfit every month. The answer is NO! You are definitely able to freeze your account, take a few months off, and then decide that you want to order again – all without any extra fees!

Prance around the gym/house/outdoors looking all sassified.

Enough said. When I received my sample outfit from PV.Body, I was more than pleasantly surprised. They listened to everything I said I liked (as indecisive as I am), and even listened to my special requests about needing longer tanks because of my height. I received a pair of long blue/gray leggings as well as this tank. I’m in love with it and even wore this outfit around yesterday with boots and a sweater thrown over it. Workout gear turned fashionista outfit? I’ll take it!


don’t mind the messy, unmade bed!

Do you want to save even more?

PV.Body offered me an opportunity to become an ambassador for their company, which basically means this. If you use my referral link, you receive 20% off your order and I get a small stipend which, let’s be honest – I’ll be using to buy more clothes from them.

So let’s do the math on this one….

Already Discounted Price: $49.95
20% Discount: $9.99
Your new workout clothing shipped free to your house: $39.96

Let me just say this – I wouldn’t be sharing this information with you if I didn’t think this company was legitimate. The whole concept kind of just blows my mind, and I’m looking forward to ordering more clothing from them in the future. Don’t forget to check it out and make 2013 your most balanced yet!
