Exciting news! I’m back in the gym after a 4 month hiatus! As my graduation gift, my parents bought me a membership to the gym for a few months. I couldn’t be happier about this as I really needed an outlet to release my stress in. What better place than the gym? Not only do you get a great workout, you’re also entertained! Watching a bunch of muscular guys lift weights totally distracts from the pain you feel doing squats. I really don’t know why women hate the gym!
Seriously though, after going a few times and getting the feel for things, I’ve come up with a list of gym gear I want. For my own reassurance, I went into Dick’s Sporting Goods to make sure everything I like comes in a pretty color. It does! That store always makes me want to be the sporty girl that I’m not!
Even when I workout I stay true to myself and my style! I love pink and wouldn’t dream of exercising in boring colors. The gym should be a place where I feel the best about myself because I’m doing something really great for my body. I’m one of those girls who does where make up to the gym (no foundation because it clogs your pores when your skin is trying to sweat). I want to feel pretty and confident!
My gym lust list right now consists of a North Face jacket, hand grips, tank top, supportive bra, and compression pants. I’ve always wanted a North Face fleece jacket and it can be really nice to have when you first get in the gym and haven’t warmed up. I’m finding that the gloves are necessary if you’re going to do any weight lifting. I blistered my hands lifting the other day.
As far as that tank top goes, I just love the saying on the front. “Fear less, sweat more” is half of what you need to do in the gym! The Addidas sports bra on my lust list will allow you to do it without fear of coming out of your bra because it’s a lot more supportive than others I’ve seen.
My final lust list item are those great Under Armor compression pants. I’ve seen so many girls wearing them and I’m about to get on board the bandwagon. Before I jump completely on though, I’d like to firm my thighs a bit. No jiggling allowed!
