I think I realized that I've turned into a workout-aholic when it was more important to me to find cute workout clothes than it was to find cute clothes to wear during the day or out at night. I don't always spend a ton of money on workout clothes, and find great deals at Target and other inexpensive places, but that doesn't stop me from loving some lululemon every once in a while. I have had to stop reading their emails so that I stop meandering over to the site and clicking through their amazing weekly offerings.
That being said, I wear it all the time, and I do care a little about how I look when I go to the gym. I always feel better when I still look put together, and I also feel more confident in my workout when I'm confident in what I'm wearing to the gym. When I leave, that's another story. I definitely subscribe to this motto:
And don't you worry, I will not be sharing what I look like when I leave. If I'm not a sweaty mess I don't feel like I've done anything, and I'm fairly certain none of you want to see that (although I think you've seen those pics a few time in some of my race recap posts).
It's been a little while since I've written about working out, but don't you worry. I'm still there all the time getting my sweat on, and I've recently added swimming to my workouts. I was lucky enough to discover that my neighborhood pool that I've not had a working key fob for in several years is actually 25 yards and 6 lanes.
My favorite ways to sweat?
Of course running still tops the list. BodyPump has moved up to a close second, with BodyCombat, spin, and swimming not far behind in third. It might honestly be like the tie for second place that is currently being disputed for the second Olympic spot in the 100 meter between Felix and Tarmoh. Coin toss for an Olympic spot anyone?!
So a few questions for you...
Do you care about how you look when you go to workout?
What is your favorite way to sweat?
Most importantly, do you want to hear more specifics about working out, like class reviews, daily workouts, weekly recaps, etc?
