THE VISION

Molly Bernadette, the writer behind A Piece Of Toast, is best known for her charming blog and coveted Pinterest boards and as part of our ongoing New Year, New Vision program, she’s sharing three of her goals for 2013 with us.

“I determined that after nearly a year without any kind of workout routine, that the new year was as good a time as any to get back into fitness and feeling good.” Fast forward to February and Molly has stayed true to her word. She is lucky enough to have a gym in her office and can sneak away to do yoga during her lunch hour.

“I know, I know,” she says, “how can I even complain when I have the luxury of yoga during my work day.” But sometimes it’s not the convenience that keeps us from hitting the gym. In her case, it still takes a certain level of willpower to change out of work clothes, like her Slim Cigarette in Cloud Blue Destroyed jeans from 7 For All Mankind, work up a sweat and then get back in her skinnies.

WHAT SHE WEARS

Speaking of work clothes, we love her ready-for-yoga look—the black flats keep things casual while the gold details on her sweater still keep her looking buttoned-up enough for meetings—before or after her afternoon sweat-sesh.  The dark grey of her sweater pairs perfectly with the light blue denim and these pants will work well far into spring.

HOW SHE DOES IT

Besides keeping things casual with her outfit, she’s also been staying motivated with help from her co-worker Kim, who has become her gym partner. “She helps me stay excited about going to classes,” she says of her yoga pal. Molly also packs her gym bag the night before and marks her planner with the days she vows to go. “I feel so good looking back and seeing how productive I’ve been,” she adds.

KEEPING IT UP

After 5 weeks of continuous yoga, she swears she won’t quit this year. “It’s crazy how much better I feel and how much more energy I have now that being active is a designated part of at least four of my workdays.” We agree! Working out and being healthy is as addictive as the most common vices can be –once you get on a roll, it’s easier to stay on track for a long period of time.

So this year, stay focused! Take a cue from Molly and try to make a plan of action for your new lifestyle. Whatever your vision may be, it starts with just a few minor changes that might just turn into a new healthy habit.
