Maybe it was the stubborn ever increasing muffin top that pushed me over the edge, or the fact that my daughter asked me if I wanted to start shopping at Lane Bryant (not that thereâ€™s anything wrong with that) but I realized I just didnâ€™t feel good. And not itâ€™s a not about a goal weight for meâ€“ I donâ€™t own a scale, itâ€™s about how I feel in clothes- itâ€™s about wanting to wear clothes and be able to tuck in my shirt. Itâ€™s about not dreading THE THOUGHT OF wearing a bathing suit. Its about feeling lighter which translates into ultimately feeling better.
I donâ€™t want to give up on my body, I donâ€™t want to be complacent about that ever increasing jeans size, and that I was at a point where I only felt comfortable in stretch pants. I want to take back ownership over how I feel, and I know the keys to all of that are changing my diet and just moving.
Luckily Iâ€™ve got the moving part down. I got myself a trainer and thanks to my husbandâ€™s gentle perseverance Iâ€™ve been getting there at least three times a week. And yes it feels good, really good. Sure I HATE getting off a warm couch and onto an elliptical(is there ANYONE who doesnâ€™t?!) but as long as it keeps my muffin top at bay Iâ€™m willing to take as many as I need to for the team.
So of course when Russell Athletic asked if I’d like to preview their new line of gym gear for women- it felt like KISMET! And they even sent some stuff for the Sugar Daddy too ( who LIVES in hoodies!)
