LOOK GOOD DOING IT!
Updated: Jun 30
Did you decide that 2019 will be the year you would stay fit? Are you a mom trying to get back to your pre-baby weight? Have you ever wondered how your gym outfit affects your motivation to work out? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, keep reading. If you don't know already, I am a working wife and mom trying to live her best life...lol. One thing a lot of moms have in common is that we are very busy and we tend to put our needs on the back burner.
I learned from experience that I cannot give from an empty well so I made an intentional choice to take care of myself. I try to workout at least three times every week, have I been perfect? No! There have been some weeks where I worked out four times and other weeks it was a struggle. 2017 was the first year in my entire life that I worked out every single week of the year. Last week a few moms reached out to me for recommendations on workout outfit. So I thought I'd share a few of my favorites
Deciding to workout or live a healthy lifestyle is always a great choice, this is something your future self will thank you for. Remember to take it one day at a time so you don't overwhelm yourself. Based on my experience when I decided to take working out seriously here are the things I considered when buying my outfits.
Comfort: This is very important when choosing what to wear to the gym. You want to make sure you are comfortable with what you decide to wear. If you are not comfortable showing your arms yet please don’t buy a tank top. Wear black if you don't want to draw attention to yourself. The goal is to get you working out consistently. Comfort brings confidence.
Style: After comfort comes style, we all get dressed to go to work and parties so why do we treat the gym as an afterthought? If you wear stylish clothes it will motivate you to workout (at least it did for me). Buy workout clothes that would inspire you to workout. I buy some of my tank tops from here . They have nice selections and the prices are reasonable.
Price: I love a bargain, but this is one area I have learned not to compromise because safety is important. When deciding on the type of shoes to wear to the gym you want to make sure that it is one that would give you the support you need based on the type of workout you would be doing. Do your research before your buy any shoe. Nike has a 30 days return policy even if you have worn the shoes.
I buy some outfit from Target, their prices are inexpensive. Old navy is another favorite store, they always have coupons you can use. Ellie active wear is something new I am trying, it is a subscription, but you can buy past collection as a one-time purchase.
