It’s been a goal of mine for what feels like forever to get in shape. Not lose weight. But get fit. Get toned. Gain endurance and muscle. I need to do something to keep up with these kids, man. They wear me out!
Last year I got into running. I hated and loved it at the same time. I hate the process of running. My lungs feel like they’re going to explode and my legs are like spaghetti but I LOVE the feeling afterwards. The endorphins high is real, people! So I ran two 5k marathons last year which is huge for me because I had surgery (C-section) last January and was pretty much sedentary for a good 3 months after giving birth. April came and I got at it with a vengeance!
This year, my fitness goals are a little different. My goal is to move my body every day for at least 30 minutes. Whether it’s a quick run, a workout at home, a cycle class or a Pilates class or even just playing outside with my kids.
Breaking a sweat once a day. That’s the goal!
So here I am, online shopping because, hello, it’s much more motivating to work out when you have new workout clothes and you’re looking cute, am I right?
I’m currently obsessing over all the cute athletic wear available right now and most of them are super affordable!
There are so many options out there for curvy women such as myself and I no longer have to feel self conscious about my body because thankfully most of them are quite flattering. I love my Nike Dri-Fit knit pants that are high-wasted and suck me in at just the right places (aka: mommy tummy). And I love this lightweight hoodie from Old Navy so much, I ordered another one in black. It’s so comfy, is the perfect length for me (covers my booty) and cost me less than $10!
It’s been so cold lately, especially in the mornings so my Canada Goose beanie keeps my head and ears super warm. It’s an investment piece but well worth it if you’re going to get a lot of use out of it and live in a city with colder climate. I can’t wait until our trip to Tahoe next month just so I can wear them.
