I’ve been wearing the same two workout pants for the past five years–alternating between a pair of Lululemons I bought a couple of years ago and a pair of Adidas I inherited from my mom that are probably from the ’80s. So, suffice to say, I felt like it was finally time to buy a new pair. I settled on these ombre ones from Nike and now I’m kind of obsessed. I didn’t believe, as some people claim, that having cool workout gear would inspire me to hit the gym more–but, actually, it does make a difference. It doesn’t get me to workout more, per se, but it does get me a little more pumped up every time I suit up in my new gear. And that counts for something, right?
