Working out…blech. Am I right?
I joined a gym recently. Because 2016: new year, new me and all that crap. And while I can’t say I’m someone who enjoys “pushing my body to the limit” I can say that a shiny new outfit is enough for me to come up with an excuse to wear it. So I’ve been looking into getting some nice gym clothes (Marshall’s is a great place to find deals on the brand name stuff), and if they fall into the athleisure trend and allow me to wear them outside the gym, then all the better. I used to just wear free T-shirts and shorts that were years old, because I was just working out and who cares? But I’ve actually found the nicer workout clothing helps me feel more confident, put together, and motivated. I don’t know why this surprises me, since I love fashion because of it’s ability to do exactly that. Why would I think that changes just because I’m on a treadmill instead of at the grocery store? It’s a mystery I suppose.
Anyway, here are some items on my wish list for gym apparel and accessories, should you so choose to motivate yourself in the same way that I have:
