Workout - What I Wear & a Giveaway

Let's start March off right! With a giveaway for new clothes (workout or regular)

I have an obsession with workout clothes. I have started buying clothes for work and going out to dinner and stuff more, but I love workout clothes! I never used to wear specific clothes to workout in. I just threw on a t-shirt from a 5k race or some other event you get a t-shirt at and walked on the treadmill.

Within the last year or so I have started buying more "workout" clothing.

I have a big shopping problem with Old Navy's Activewear Section on their website and my newest obsession is the Fabletics Websitse {invite link}. You may have heard of Fabletics before, Kate Hudson wanted to make great clothes for working out and everyday living. The best part about this company is the pricing. I think the prices are not bad. You can get your first outfit for 50% off and then you can get 3 piece for $49.

Every month they send you a customized list of outfits you may like. I opt out in the months that I do not have the funds or do not need anything. Even if you just get your first outfit at half off it is worth it :)

So the other day I asked Tim to take some photos of me in some of my favorite pieces and he says well aren't people going to know it is all the same day? Well duh, I am not working out I am just showing what I wear. Then I found some interesting photos on my camera that I cannot really share here. One was a close up of my butt & there were lots of the cat.
I love thumb holes! Anything with thumbs holes is for me :) This was my first outfit from Fabletics. The shirt was tight when I received it, but now it fits great.
Let's talk leggings for a second. I never like legging until recently. I love them when I run and I find that they do not get in the way when I am working out or doing yoga.
I cannot wait for summer to come so I can start wearing my tank tops again :)

Comfy outfit time -
I like this shirt, but I am not sure I would really wear it for a workout. I just got this outfit a week or two ago. I stepped outside of my box with the colored leggings, but I really like them :)

Here are some other workout clothes that are in rotation...
I wear 5k t-shirts still, but they are not oversized anymore and they fit nicely. I have a few Reebok shirts I bought at the outlet last year, but they are getting a little big.
The shirt on the left I wear all of the time. My god daughter made it and it was the first medium men's shirt I got. It is pretty comfy and it is definitely one of my staples for workouts. Another staple of my workouts as you can see from these photos are my Brady Bands - I love them and they have a great back story.

I absolutely love Old Navy active wear! It is comfy and you can usually find pieces at a great price. This compression tank is one of my favorites I have it in black too. I also like their capri leggings because they stay up. When I do burpees I do not worry about my waist falling down in these.

As you can see I have a variety of clothes I wear. I have a whole drawer 2 drawers in the dresser dedicated to workout clothes. (not counting the fact that I put summer clothes in storage bin under the bed)

  19. I struggle with workout clothes. Right now I just have some t-shirts (they are "exercise" ones for the most part) and knit bottoms. My bottoms are getting quite baggy now, I really have to use the ties to keep them up. I'm just not ready for the really form fitting bottoms ... still totally self conscious. I tend to stay in my workout gear much of the day (as I do stuff around the house, pop down to the home gym for a workout, pick up carpool then do another workout, run to the store, do another workout) so I want something I feel comfortable in. However I've been more aware of my clothes as I've been attending a Zumba class ... ah, what to do. I'm also totally intimidated by color, still only comfortable in black and gray ...

    1. I used to wear the same stuff :) Then I started trying new things to wear to races and now I am hooked on cute workout clothes :) I cannot afford some of the shirts with the sayings on them, but who cares. Try something colorful for a top and stick with black pants if you don't want to go all crazy :)
