Remember when I told you that I joined a gym and all my fears and thoughts on the matter? I was doing really well. I was sticking to my healthy eating habits and working out at least 3 times a week. I lost 15 pounds which doesn’t sound like a lot, but I kept having people tell me it was better to lose it slowly. I did this from February until June. Then my husband was laid off and my sister was going through some hard times (REALLY hard) and I fell off the wagon a little. I took on an insane workload so we could pay the bills since unemployment checks were hardly anything. And the anxiety from it all made me “stress eat”. I literally pulled all nighters left and right. The lack of sleep, the stress eating, the lack of time to go to the gym, and the stress made it so I gain a little of the weight back. Then my husband got a new job (YAY!) but it requires him to work longer hours and commute and hour each way. Since we only have one car, going tot he gym was not working out.
BUT ( or maybe I should say BUTT in this case :P ) we just bought an old clunker car that my husband can commute with last week! So I am finally in a position to go back to the gym. And I have been back on my healthy eating bandwagon for a couple weeks now. It is time to hit the restart button :)
What better way to get excited about working out than getting new work out clothes???
I was contacted by Albion Fit about a possible review and giveaway. I hopped over to their site and fell in love with their stuff. I had been working out in my husband’s Tee shirts and basket ball shorts.
I told them them I would love the chance to try some of their duds. They sent a variety of things. I have had then for awhile and I have to say that they are super comfy and I have washed and washed them and they still look new.
You are about to see me in spandex…… (I can’t believe I am doing this)
Before we got our second car last week I developed a love/hate relationship with Jillian Michaels.
I ADORE my hoodie! It is long and soft and warm. And one day I may find the courage to wear the racer tank tot he gym. But for now I wear it for at home workouts.
