4 TIPS TO ACHIEVE YOUR 2017 FITNESS GOALS

CROPS: Zobha c/o // TOP: Zobha c/o // SPORTS BRA: Lululemon // SHOES: Nike (on major sale for only $59 in 12 colors!) // SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker

The hustle and bustle (and splurging) of the holidays is officially over and you can read about how I stayed fit during this crazy time of the year here.  Now that the New Year is in full swing, there’s a million people hitting the gym daily and trying to reach their fitness goals for 2017. If you are like everyone else out there, you probably start off January really strong- eating healthy and balanced meals, working out multiple times a week, and ultimately feeling pretty good about yourself. Unfortunately for some, this lifestyle will only stick for a few short weeks, and I’m here today to set you up for success to maintain your 2017 fitness goals for the entire year. Keep in mind, I’m not a personal trainer, but I have a passion and love for staying fit and leading a healthy lifestyle. So let’s get this party started:

  1. Do yourself a favor, and buy this planner: I received it as a gift from my brother for Christmas (thanks Ty!), and have been loving using it to keep myself on track. It’s seamless to use, helps me set goals to increase productivity, helps me open up about gratitude, tracks my months/weeks/days, and even holds myself accountable for my exercise of the day.  This might sound silly, but wearing new workout gear (like these cute leggings, top, and comfy/affordable sneakers) always motivates me to stay healthy and fit no matter what!
  2. Set long-term goals but also break them down into attainable short-term goals: Because your goal is to make this a lifestyle change and habit, it’s important that you set the right kind of goals in order to be successful. For example, if your goal is to lose 20 lbs this year, break it down into 5 lb increments. Or if your goal is to workout 5-7 times per week, plan out your workouts one week at a time. Start with 2-3 workouts per week and increase your gym days as the weeks go on. This way you can celebrate your small victories and work towards your larger goal!
  3. Write down your goals somewhere visible:  It’s important to be able to visualize your goals daily. Whether that be on the refrigerator, on the background of your phone, or on the bathroom mirror. Write them down and post them as a daily reminder to yourself. For example, my “no added sugar” goal is all over the place in my planner, specifically under the Daily Habit section.
  4. Create a healthy lifestyle for yourself, nobody else: It’s important to feel your best from the inside out. When  you feel your best, you look your best! 🙂

EVERYDAY COMFORT + MY GO-TO

SHOES: Adidas // DENIM: Levi’s (similar distressed denim here)// TEE: Free People (on sale- only $36!) // SWEATER: Free People (on sale!) // SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker // NECKLACE: Tiffany & Co. (similar dupe here) // CHOKER: Forever21 (identical choker here) // BAG: GiGi New York (similar on sale here) // RING: BP.

I know I’m probably not alone when I say that sometimes getting dressed can feel like a chore. Have you ever stood in front of your closet thinking to yourself, “I have nothing to wear today…”?! Well, I’m happy to tell you that you are not alone 😉 A quick styling tip for the everyday girl when you’re in this dramatic dilemma and need to throw together an outfit: sneakers, distressed denim, a tee and a cardigan always win. Just remember, that sneakers go with everything. This is typically my go-to on weekends while I’m meeting up with friends/family or running errands around town.

THE EASE OF MONTHLY GIFT

If you’re anything like me, you’re always on the go! Somehow I always find every opportunity to fill up every hour of every day. Sound familiar? Whether that means going straight from teaching all day to rushing into a gym class, or meeting up with a friend for coffee then finishing laundry and trying to beat the crowds at Trader Joe’s, there’s little time for me to remember when that special time of the month will arrive.

Enter my new BFF, Monthly Gift. This little black box now arrives on my doorstep at the perfect time, monthly, without me having to set aside time to go to the drug store. You can customize your box to fit your needs, but your box will include the essentials: emergency chocolate, a refillable water bottle to keep you hydrated, and just the right amount of essential feminine care. The little black box is dependable and the type of monthly gift that makes that stressful time of the month a little easier 😉 Be  sure to use code 5FIRSTBOX to get your first box shipped to your front door for ONLY $5! Score!

CALIFORNIA WINTER STYLE

BOOTS: Goodnight Macaroon (identical/on sale herehere, and here) // SKIRT: Romwe c/o (only $12) // SWEATER: Romwe c/o (similar here) // TOTE: Tory Burch // SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker // RING: BP. (only $12) // BRACELET: J.Crew Factory

If you’ve just started following Torey’s Treasures here or on Instagram, welcome! If you’re a veteran 😉 then you know I was born and raised in Santa Barbara, CA where I currently live. Although I absolutely love traveling to new (and much colder) locations like Seattle, Vancouver, and Tahoe, there’s nothing I love more than being in my hometown.

One of the major perks of living in southern California is the climate. It typically stays between the 60s and 70s year round, so dressing for winter looks a little bit different here, than some of you in other locations! This denim skirt and cozy cable knit sweater are typical attire for me this time of year, and I find myself reaching for these ($54) leggings with boots ALL the time! Speaking of boots, I love that these OTK (over the knee)  boots can be worn into upcoming Spring with a flowy floral dress!

TAHOE SNOW DAY + COATS UNDER $80 TO GET YOU THROUGH WINTER

COAT: Shein c/o (only $32) // BEANIE: Old but similar herehere and here // SWEATER: Free People // DENIM: BlankNYC // SOCKS: Forever21 (identical here) // BOOTS: Sperry (tip: order big kids size here for the same shoe but more affordable!)

We rang in the New Year in Lake Tahoe for a ski trip and to unplug! There’s something about visiting the snow and watching it fall gracefully down to the white cushioned ground that is calming and magical to me. I love it! Also, this fuzzy coat kept me SO warm on our trip, I constantly want to snuggle up in it now that I’m back home and it’s been so rainy!

To get you through the next few cold months of winter we have left, I’ve rounded up some of the cutest coats ALL under $80 for you! My favorite is this parka that’s only $58! All you have to do is click on the item to shop…
