I wonder if you guys are like me? Anytime I feel like I’ve been slacking on my workouts or need some new motivation, I feel NEW workout clothes will get me in the spirit. Ha! I bebop myself up to Nike or get online and get myself the latest, greatest in workout gear.
I love the new colors and prints that are out. I get inspired by the pictures of alI the fit women exercising hanging all over the store. Doesn’t it inspire you? It’s so motivating.
It’s also funny how in the last couple years, working out has become “cool”. Follow me here. I have been working out my whole life, especially because I played sports and then when I stopped, I felt there was a void in my life. My family was always active so to be sedentary just isn’t my thing. While working out, I would throw on whatever didn’t show my fat rolls and made me look more in shape. Generally a pair of shorts and a looser tshirt that didn’t suffocate me was what I worked out in. Now, thanks to the athlesuire trend, I’m all about matching and looking cute. I have all sorts of pants in bright colors and prints (my favorite being leopard print). This new trend has made working out look more, I don’t know, less sweaty? Even girls that hate to workout are dressing the part and actually trying out a class or two. Good for them. If this is what it took to start a healthy revolution, then fashion you’ve done it again. It reminds me of that part in the Devil Wears Prada where Andy giggles about the belt being so different and the “Devil” gives her a quick lesson on how high fashion trickles down to even the little sweater she was wearing that day. Even though you think high end doesn’t apply to you, somehow it ends up in your closet in some sort of way and I for one smile as Miranda did.
Here’s my latest motivations. Ha!
