New Year's Resolution Check-Up

Was it just a month and a half ago we were ringing in 2016 with friends, family and the resolution to better something about ourselves? Amidst the busyness of our routines, it's easy to let those new year's promises slip to the bottom of our priority list. It's time to check in with yourself and determine what would make keeping those resolutions easier.

Did you decide to wake up earlier and fit in a run before you start the work day? Maybe sleeping in your running clothes will propel you to get out of bed and lace up the sneakers when it's a chilly Minnesota morning. Did you decide to be more organized at work? Pretty desk accessories, a detailed planner and a new desktop wallpaper may be just the refresher you need to stay on track. See a few of our favorite items for sticking out your new year's resolutions below.

FITNESS RESOLUTIONS

Whether your goal is to ditch the sugary drinks, try that new kickboxing class or run your first marathon, a new workout top or a new beat-pumping playlist may be just the boost you need to (roundhouse) kick your resolution to completion.
