I have always been looking for a way to get an effective workout in fast. As much as I enjoy working out and the sweat while doing it, I don’t really have the time, nor do I wanted to spend the time working out for multiple hours. Now more than ever, with being a mom and having all the responsibilities that come along with that while maintaining a house and having a life, truthfully it does not leave a whole lot of time to devote to working out.
Cute workout clothes. That’s a thing, right? It certainly is for me!
I have always had a thing for shopping in general and specifically for nice, cute and fun purchases. When I have an exciting event coming up, I like to buy a new outfit. There is something about wearing something new that gives you confidence, you get excited to attend the event because you get to wear that new shirt or dress…it makes you feel good! This love for clothing has most definitely transferred over to my love for activewear.
At the beginning of this year, when I made the decision to buckle down and focus more on getting fit again, I thought to myself, “I should get a new workout outfit!”. I knew this would encourage me to get moving- because I will be excited to wear my new crops. To some, this may sound like a big case of vanity, and everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but let’s just reference back to what I mentioned before. When you wear something that is new, it gives you a little bit of bounce in your step, you feel better… so perhaps there is a chance you might work harder? Just stay with me here, it really does make a difference.
