Beauty, style

the one with workout clothes

Last week I started talking to you about the delicious health shakes I’ve started eating to help get healthier. Losing, maintaining, or gaining weight it starts with food. BUT you get fit in the gym . . .


It seems like flashy workout clothes are everywhere these days. I’m not into it. So I like to stick with a basic color scheme and clothes that will enhance my workout. This whole outfit is from the Old Navy Active line. The colors keep it simple and slim me out. The compression pants keep me from jiggling . . . which it’s a goal to still jiggle when I am healthy so that’s helpful. And the fabric of the tank . . . o the fabric  . . . it’s exactly what a workout tank should feel like. dry. silk. smooth. Old Navy isn’t a sponsor . . . I just really love their clothes. I also wanted you to see my pale winter skin.


Now back to the kitchen. . . like I said last week, it’s not about size for me. it’s about getting healthy. This isn’t about being a certain size, or a quick fix, and it’s not just about eating right and working out. It’s about general wellness . . . health, fitness, mindset, skin care, body image, self esteem, i could go on and on . . .


So Nina from wear flowers in your hair and I have started a project. We’re going to be accountability partners for each other about our general wellness. Each month we’ll each post about a certain focus topic.


For me, wellness is going to start in the kitchen with weight loss. Food affects our mood, our behavior, our mindset, our self image . . . food affects all of it!! And before last week I mostly ate bad stuff that made me feel even worse. When I’m not having a shake, Nina and I will be following a whole 30 diet. Go to for all the details and check back in at the end of February to see how we did, how we feel, and what the next topic will be.

What are your favorite work out clothes? Where does wellness start for you!

    Old Navy’s workout clothes are the BEST! They are really affordable, too. I’m not big on bright flashy workout clothes, either. Neon yoga pants are just not for me. My style is a lot like yours! And I love that you and Nina are going to be accountability partners. It’s always so much easier when you do it with someone else! My boyfriend and I have both been working out, and it’s great to be able to encourage each other and talk about what we want to work on.

    I love Old Navy’s Active line, especially the compression pants! They push me to work out harder with confidence. Good luck with Whole 30! ‘m currently doing the 21 Day Sugar Detox, but have my eye on that in the next couple of months. 🙂

    Old Navy’s active line is so underrated! They have some great workout bottoms and slouchy tops. I also love Target for activewear. My favorite sports bras ever are from Target – they’re way better than expensive ones from Nike or other “name brands.” 🙂

    I love Old Navy’s workout clothes too. Right now my favorite gym outfit is fitted gray and purple workout capris from Target and a purple Jane Austen t-shirt from Books-a-Million. Figured I would show some personality at the gym, lol. I’m definitely the only one in a Jane Austen t-shirt.
