Albion Fit Giveaway

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???

Albion Fit

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.

BRACE YOURSELVES.

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’m on the warpath to lose about 15 extra pounds that I acquired from stress eating when my 2nd baby was all colicky. I’m mostly there but I new workout clothes would definitely help me get the rest of the way:)

  2. Hunter says

    What a great giveaway! Maybe some new workout clothes will motivate me to start exercising more. I love the petal pants. So cute!

  3. says

    There’s nothing like new work out clothes for a little motivation!!! You look GREAT and I’d love to win1!!! :) Thanks too for the great link party – I enjoy it each week that I can.

  4. Carolyn says

    I would love the tennis outfit and leggings. I hate spending money on clothes I sweat in but it does motivate me to go use them. :)

  5. says

    I’m trying to motivate myself to keep running outside even as the temperatures drop. The Flatter Me and Sweet Stripe hoodies would be excellent!

  6. says

    I love the Go Long Crew in almond and in fuschia and in eggplant. I can’t decide which is the cutest! Thanks for the giveaway! I’m always down for new workout clothes!

  7. Judy D says

    I started working out on 11/1/13 and promised I would exercise every day. Fun, comfortable, new workout clothes might help me get more excited about it.

  8. Wild Orchid says

    I would love these capris-http://www.albionfit.com/specials/lounge-crop-charcoal

    Thank you for this opportunity. I went to their website and there are just so many wonderful things I could use. I couldn’t just pick one thing. I’m about to have a baby in 3 weeks and work out clothes would be amazing for trying to lose all the baby weight.

  10. Connie says

    I like several of their items, but I like the Go Long Crew with Thumb holes for the colder weather. I also like several of their swimsuits. My goal is to be able to fit in a nice swimsuit in the spring.

  11. Erica Bera says

    I saw your teaser fb post last night, and I was hoping it would be an Albion giveaway! I am a lover of hoodies, but they have THE cutest swimsuits too!

  12. Afton says

    I love all the adorable tennis skirts! Gah- I wish they had cute ones like that when I played in high school. I also love the sweet stripe capris and the petal pants. So much great stuff!

  13. says

    You look great in the aqua shirt and charcoal leggings!
    Much better look than oversized tees ;-) But really, whatever gets us moving to get in shape right?

    I’m finally taking my health and weight seriously again. Logging what I eat (diabetic diet), sticking to an exercise routine I walk the kids to/from school which equals 3 mi. day, plus I’m getting an elliptical trainer delivered tomorrow – woohoo!

  14. Sara K says

    I do love that pink tank!! New clothes always help with my motivation to workout especially now that it’s dark at 5:30 in the evenings.

  15. Danita Courtney says

    Love the long black yoga pants with design on one leg! Pretty and I bet they make you feel like a million bucks!

  16. cmct says

    Geez, girl, your post makes it sound like you weigh 300 lbs. You look lovely in the tank top. Take it easy on yourself. I’m impressed by 15 lbs; you’re an inspiration. I hope the exercise helps you de-stress. As for what I’d choose, I got a chuckle out of the items they call “skirts.” Glad they have items with a little more coverage in sizes for the rest of us. I’d choose the Après Leggings, Indigo. Looks really comfortable.

  17. Paula Fowler says

    I saw so much that I loved on the Albion website. I have been trying to lose 15 lbs. Cold weather has brought me inside to my treadmill. Would love the capris!

  18. Jen says

    I am very interested in the swimwear… we live in a very hot place, and our swim suits get wore out! thanks for a chance at the giveaway!

  19. Caroline says

    I don’t think I could pull it off, because its name really does describe it – the Showstopper Swimsuit (in black & white). I love the old school look!. But honestly I also love their sports bras – they look like they could actually handle a busty girl and provide real support. So rare!

  20. says

    I could definitely use some motivation for working out…the start of winter always does this to me. New workout clothes are just the ticket! They have so many great options…I’d probably go with yoga pants for starters…
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. Kendra Burns says

    I have been eyeing Albion Fit’s site for awhile (they have some cool stuff, like the Go Long Crew!), and now that I have joined a gym, I would love to get some new workout clothes! Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. says

    The go long crew is my fav!! Hello–thumbholes!
    I am also in a love/hate relationship with Jillian. I’m doing the 6 weeks abs video (amazon prime instant streaming!). Fingers crossed I can do it for 6 weeks!
    You look great girl! Thanks for sharing your pictures, you had no reason to be scared!

  23. Rebecca says

    OOoo, I like a lot of this stuff. Glad to hear that you’ve had a good experience with wash/wear. I’m loving the Serenity tank, I don’t have anything like.

  24. says

    I will take any of the jackets/hoodies since our gym trainer is loving having us work outside in sun, rain, snow, sleet, fog….ect! I love Albion Fit and would LOVE to win!!!

  25. says

    I am glad that things are looking up for your family. Hope things get better for you sister as well.
    You look great, and you have fabulous hair!

    I love the thumbholes in long sleeves. Such a fun little touch.

  26. Nicole I. says

    I think the crew shirts look amazing- so simple and basic like the fit is nice. However I am IN LOVE with the Sweet Stripe Full Zip in coral/grey. It looks promising. Another thing I love is the overall color palette they are working with- it’s modern and clean, it’s fresh and it makes my pupils dilate. Thanks for this post, I had never heard of this brand before now!

  27. Jennifer says

    I love the “go long” crews. It’s always such a pain when you’re stretching and keep having to tug a shirt back down!

  28. Terrie M says

    I’ve always loved their workout wear! This is a wonderful giveaway – thank you.

    I am so glad things are getting better for your family. Enjoy that gym and the occasional Jillian :)

  29. Karen says

    I love the East Coast hoodie! It looks so comfortable! Sometimes you just need some cozy layers, and this would be perfect!

  30. Candice says

    I need to find the motivation to exercise and lose 15 lbs of pregnancy weight. I’d love to hear your tips for eating healthy on a budget.

  31. Lela says

    I have been eyeing their stuff since this summer. I need some good workout clothes for cold weather (now that it’s here!)
