I'm going to admit something that's been pretty tough for me to deal with. I've gained about 25 pounds in the past four years. Life has had its ups and downs -- being fired from a job, dealing with a less than stellar roommate situation, moving to a new apartment. And even though the past two years have been nothing but rosy, the weight has still slowly crept on. Chalk it up to too many nights ordering unhealthy dinners, too many days spent NOT working out, just too much indulging overall. Truth be told, I can't fit into a lot of my amazing clothes anymore -- they're too tight in the bust, too tight in the stomach, just too darn tight. So I'm making a change, committing to eating better and working out more. Hence my latest OOTD!
Is this the most fashionable look ever? No. Do I go to the gym all dolled up, wearing makeup and super cute clothes? Not a chance. But does it show you that I'm ready to work up a sweat and really try to change my body for the better? Yes. And I think that sometimes, that's what's really fashionable about a person -- seeing them deal with their flaws and try to make things better. Here's what I wore to work out at my gym, the amazing Sports Club LA, this past week.
VERY old T-shirt -- one of my favorites from high school as a matter of fact! The back has a picture of the characters from Green Eggs and Ham.
Lululemon Turbo Run Short, $54 at lululemon.com
Stretchy white headband -- I have no idea where it came from! I found it in my jewelry armoire.
Nike NIKEiD Custom Nike Air Pegasus+ 28 ID Running Shoes, around $100 at nike.com
