I recently mentioned that I have become addicted to Cross fit for the last month. Before beginning Cross fit, I occasionally took a yoga class or a Zumba class, but never really had a set workout schedule. Now, I try to make it to a Cross fit workout 5 times a week.
You have to understand how much of a change this is for me. Before Cross Fit, you could not PAY me to go to the gym that often. It's so boring walking on the treadmill. All I do is stare at the minutes left on the machine and daydream about french fries. So, with my newfound passion for CF, I have been going through my limited gym clothing like there's no tomorrow. Last weekend, I had to invest in a few more pieces. Here are my favorites:
Lululemon's Nakedseam shorts are the most comfortable workout shorts I've ever worn. Priced at $68 a piece, they are a bit expensive, but trust me- they're worth it. Plus, how fun are the patterns? I recently bought the polka dot pair and wear them constantly. (FYI- I typically wear a size 4 pant size, but I bought these shorts in an 8 so that they would fit a bit looser.) I know a lot of girls love those Nike running shorts, but I can't stand those on my body.
My go-to workout tops are Nike tanks. I love the ones with built-in bras, or the basic tanks that are light and I can pair with a sports bra.
I carry my TB canvas tote. What can I say? I love my Tory. It's perfect for throwing my clothes in in the morning and carrying with me to work.
I am in the market for new gym shoes, and I'm leaning towards these Nike Free Runs in a mint shade.
I'm a firm believer that wearing cute workout clothes will motivate you to get to the gym. Honestly. It also helps to have a few friends who will keep you accountable. Do you have a favorite brand to wear when working out, or perhaps a favorite workout shoe? Please share with me! I'm new to this workout game. :)
