Today I did a little shopping for some new active wear. I’ve been putting it off because, in all honesty, I don’t want to keep spending money on clothes if I’m going to continue to shrink. I’m in desperate need of some new running shorts, new workout pants/capris, new yoga pants (the ones I have are SUPER huge on me), and most importantly new sports bras. I really thought I could get away with just wearing camisoles under my tank tops to workout, but I was informed by my personal trainer (AKA the hubster) that I need to wear a sports bra. Yes…a man lectured me on that. Why? Well, because for one (the most obvious) is to prevent sagging (TMI, I know. SORRY!!!) My argument to that was simply “I don’t have any boobs.” His response “Doesn’t matter.” And secondly, I guess while I was doing some workouts that required me to be on all fours (like push-ups or planks), he said I flashed him a couple of times. Wow. I mean, come on…really? That made me laugh…but then it also made me a little self-conscious. So today, while we were out and about running errands, we stopped in at one of my favorite “go-to” stores Forever21.
*cheesy lame excuse of a banner, but whatever 😛 *
I gotta say… this store has come a long way from what it used to be 10+ years ago. They have some cute stuff!!! And, I’m not gonna lie, I needed to get somethin’ inexpensive. Yeah, kinda have to be frugal for a little while. We kinda spent a little too much in Hawaii if ya know what I mean.
The great thing about Forever21’s active wear line is that, it’s not expensive at all. They have a pretty decent collection of colors and styles to choose from. And I was pretty happy with most of what I tried on. I don’t have a lot going on in the boobage area so it’s not like I had to be picky with finding something with lots of support. I actually needed somethin’ with lots of padding so that I don’t look flat-chested. Anyway! Moving on.
Here’s what I walked out of the store with…
These, I believe were $9.80.
These have extra padding in ’em. Yup… happy about that.
Totally LOVE their active wear line.
Simple. Colorful. Stylish. Just plain awesome.
On a side note. I didn’t get a chance to go to the gym today after running errands. I had intended to go… but I fell asleep. Power nap. And I almost convinced myself to take the day off. Almost. But when I realized that I’m going to a family BBQ tomorrow and wasn’t sure when I’d actually find the time to get a good workout in, so I decided to do a GOOD cardio workout tonight.
*did this 3x and YES it kicked my booty*
And this is me post-workout.
Glowing. Haha. More like sweaty and gross!
Dork status, right?
And yes, that’s me sportin’ the new bra!
Shorts are a lil too big – had to fold ’em over… which only means I have an excuse to buy me some new ones!
Will definitely be going on a shopping spree soon.
Enjoy the rest of your Memorial Day Weekend!!!
