My New Year’s resolution was to eat healthier and exercise more. My Lenten “take on” is to exercise at least 20 minutes every day.
I am getting there.
Slowly. Oh so slowly. Turtle and the hare, people, turtle and the hare.
Excerpt from Go Dog Go by P. D. Eastman
For the majority of my life I have had a very low key approach to exercise gear. I thought Umbros were the height of sexy.
But the first time I wore an ancient college tee shirt with the sleeves cut off to my Barre3 class I got the distinct impression times had changed.
So, to up my exercise clothing game, I toodled out to visit the stores of the popular brands I saw in my class and nearly passed out. Lycra is apparently the most expensive commodity on the market. I shall henceforth transfer all my investments accordingly.
But seriously. Here are some affordable work out clothing options that are good looking and do the job well. Because frankly, while I might be self-conscious enough to adapt my exercise outfit to the current trend, I am not going to go so far as blowing wads on something whose sole purpose is for me to sweat in it.
