Y’all know I started Weight Watchers this year and lost like 8 pounds. Then I got lazy, fell off the WW wagon and gained it all back. Hey, it happens.
Maybe dieting isn’t for me…or anyone…because it sucks. But you know what doesn’t suck? Feeling good. And dammit if working out doesn’t make you feel good. Man, I hate that!
To tell you the truth, I don’t know if I hate working out or just hate what I wear to work out. The ill-fitting XL t-shirt nabbed free with my cell phone and well-worn maternity yoga pants haven’t exactly inspired me to keep moving. And with spring nearly sprung, I can’t hide under oversized sweaters forever. You guys, it’s time to shape up for summer (slow clap).
Five minutes into my self-imposed “Operation: Swimsuit” cardio quest, I realized that if I was going to feel like a hot mess stepping into a new workout routine, I at least owed it to myself to look good doing it.
But what do I need? Where do I start? What should I buy? There are just so. many. options!
Instead of curling up into the fetal position in the women’s section of my local sporting goods store (believe me, I considered it), I decided to consult SELF’s Senior Market Editor, Kristen Saladino for the latest trends in workout wear! Check out my interview here!
