As some of you know from reading I have been super into working out these past two and a half months, and it’s pretty much changed my life. I always loved being active but for a while I had a hard time fitting it into my schedule, and for about a year I didn’t exercise at all. I started fitting it into my every day life when I finished school because I had a lot more time on my hands. I didn’t start working out to lose tons of weight, I did it because I was sick of eating crap day in and day out, and feeling out of breath from walking up the stairs. I really wanted to start feeling healthy and good about what I was eating. The more fried food I ate, the slower I was moving, and the more tired I was. I still have tiny cheats here and there but for the most part my every day intake is considered “clean eating.” I eat a lot of greens, vegetables, fruits and proteins. It’s definitely a huge life change, and it’s made me think twice about what I am putting into my body.
Since I hadn’t worked out in over a year my workout clothes needed a serious pick me up. I was wearing old sweats from a few years ago that were all discolored and faded…AKA not cute. I got this whole outfit [sports bra, shorts , tank] , including the workout gloves from Marshalls. It’s nice to find affordable workout clothing that doesn’t kill my wallet. It’s an added expense now since this is a new part of my life, and Marshall’s has great brands, for half the price. You can’t beat it!
As some of you know I am a part of Project Fab with Marshalls this year and I couldn’t be more excited to showcase some of the awesome items they carry in their stores. I decided to get all new workout gear because it made me more motivated to workout, and because I desperately needed it!
It’s crazy to think that something simple like working out can mean a whole lifestyle change, but it’s really true. If you’re feeling down in the dumps, I suggest throwing on some funky workout clothes and hitting the gym…it cures a bad day and takes your mind off your troubles for that time..Just focus your energy into the workout, and you’re golden.
