Drinking Wine and Blogging in My Activewear

cheersMy wardrobe has taken a dramatic turn since my child became mobile. It’s the heart-stopping, turn your head and he’s gone kind of mobile. Once we entered this activity- enhanced phase and I found myself running down the street, chasing through store aisles, crawling around playgrounds, navigating the grocery store with a child/monkey climbing me…these are not activities for cute dresses and strappy shoes. Nope. I needed to invest in some Activewear.

I started with a cheap sports bra on Amazon that ended up being the most comfortable thing in the world. I ended up buying a 6 pack in different colors! Bye-bye Victoria’s Secret $50 bra! Hello $6 Amazon special. Everything pokes, scratches or just bugs me so I looooove these things. I’m serious. My last order of VS undies I have to wear inside out because the damn seams are so sharp. I warned my husband what was up so he wouldn’t think I was losing it.

Then I invested in some really comfy sneakers and started collecting running capris. Not as long as yoga pants (I’m in Florida!) but not as short as shorts. And then added cute tank tops to pair over the sports bras. This is now my daily wardrobe. While I do actually go to the gym a few times a week, I dress like this regardless of my gym attendance. It’s just so functional! And I think it looks a lot better than the big T-shirts and jean shorts combo I was rocking post-maternity wear.

So I get the yoga pants mom thing now. I may actually look into those when it gets chilly! I am guilty of doing everything in my activewear, because I am up and moving most of the day. I didn’t even go to the gym today or workout and still hit 19,000 steps on my Fitbit just running around trying to balance housework and “toddler things.” So cheers to all you mom’s out there in your fancy activewear. We all know you earned it.

  1. I live in gym clothes. Even when I was working, I’d wear my scrubs, then immediately change into gym clothes (regardless of me going to the gym or not.) They are just too comfy to not wear. Plus, I still don’t fit into all my jeans just yet, and honestly, who the hell am I trying to impress in tight jeans? No thanks.

      1. Honestly, once I started working in fields where I wore scrubs, I was like screw jeans. Now that I’m trying to get into Personal Training, I get to live in activewear. It’s going to be awesome!

      2. Yessss. I know the one gym I just applied to wants strict black activewear pants which is kind of depressing since I own a bunch of Pokemon ones, and other geeky stuff, but that’ll just be my general workout gear now 🙂

      3. Lotus Leggings has a bunch of great stuff, but only get things on sale. Look Human is where I get my workout tees which was super great.
