You guys know I’ve been on this quest to get healthier. I know, I know, EVERYONE says that… but I’m being serious. In the last year I’ve taken MASSIVE strides to get healthier overall. I’ve started using essential oils, I’ve been eating cleaner and better, I’m getting out and walking more, and I’m getting more sleep and tracking my steps… I’m literally trying everything I can to improve my overall health and wellness in every aspect.
But, I will be the first to admit, that exercise has been my biggest struggle. I used to be a runner and then I hurt my knee and never got back into it. Then I was AWESOME (I say that as humbly as possible) and worked out basically my entire pregnancy… all the way up until Lilly was born. And then I had a c-section and my recovery was so tough. And I fell out of the habit.
So, anyway… I’m digressing. All that to say… I KNOW I have to get more consistent with REAL exercise. While my daily walk with the dogs and Lilly is great, it’s not enough to make a real difference in my overall shape.
And I realize this is going to sound totally lame a trivial, but it’s the God’s honest truth… one of the things that I hate about working out is none of my cute workout clothes fit me anymore and so I feel like a huge slob when I go to the gym. I will be the first to admit that this is totally vain and totally absurd, but it’s true.
I remember when I played golf growing up and my dad would always say, “It’s important to dress a good game.” And he was so right. If I was dressed well for a golf match, I always played better. It’s a whole mindset thing.
I mean, don’t YOU feel more motivated to go to the gym when you have cute workout clothes? No? Just me?
Well, I got the chance to try out the women’s active kit from Augusta Sportswear and I was really excited to try it out and take it for a real, actual (grueling) test run.
Last week we had our January #triFABB meet up at Flywheel Sports and I was pumped because it was the first real opportunity I had to REALLY take my Augusta Activewear for a spin. Literally. See what I did there?
I got the kit with a razorback tank, capris, and bag. If I’m being completely transparent with you, I didn’t get the BEST picture of me in the full outfit (like a formal outfit picture)… and the reason why is because I am still very insecure about my body. I’m putting it out there. I just don’t like the way I look right now and I’m dealing with that. BUT, that is NO FAULT of the workout wear at all. In fact, I loved it. A lot!
That’s me in the front left (I know, the one with the most awkward face) before our workout…
I didn’t get a picture of me with the outfit and the workout bag together… but this is the bag I received. IT’S HUGE. Like, massive. So much room for
activities stuff. You can fit ALL of the things in there. Extra clothes, water bottle, etc.
Then, we went into Flywheel for our spin class. HOLY MOLY IT WAS INSANE and SO HARD. My gosh. They kick your butt in there! If you look closely there in the back left (in the mirror) you can see me struggle bussing it along… But my workout gear was holding strong!
And then afterwards. Totally sweaty. Red. But feeling awesome!
I did end up putting a sweatshirt on afterwards during the meet up portion of the night (this is me talking to all the attendees), but you can see those capris are lookin’ fly.
I will honestly say that I loved the workout wear. The Augusta capris are my favorite (SO stretchy and comfortable), the bag is my second favorite, and the tank is my third favorite… mainly because I’m just so uncomfortable in a tank like that. That’s just me, personally… I’m a baggy t-shirt kind of girl when it comes to working out. ‘Naw mean?
