although it's early spring, we've already had some hot weather. I've been switching out my workout clothes. You see I keep all of my workout clothes in the trunk of my car. They go from the dryer back to my car. That's so I never have the "I left my gym bag at home" excuse to miss a workout.
It's time to remove the yoga pants and LS tees and move the running shorts and tanks to my car. There's a problem though. Last year's running shorts are really huge on me now. Some I can't even run in because the waist slides down as I run (no matter how tight I tie the drawstring).
My longer workout shorts seem to be fine. I've been wearing those to boot camp. Most of them are actually men's shorts. My husband HATES them, but I don't like to wear running shorts when I'm using the weight machines. I need something that is longer on my legs. I have one pair from Dollar General that he really despises. I admit they are pretty bad, but there's a story behind them.
One day at work I decided the weather would be great for a bike ride that afternoon. (I also keep my bike at the office. No place to ride near the house.) I realized I'd left my stack of laundry on the counter. I still had t-shirts, but no shorts or yoga pants with me. The only place near the office that sells clothes is a Dollar General. At lunch I went to DG. Nothing in the women's section, but they did have a pair of navy men's shorts that would work and they were cheap. Problem solved. Yes, they are hideous. I'm not at the gym to look pretty and hook up...I'm there to get fit!
I do try to look decent and like most gals, I love cute workout clothes. But they have to be the right price. I buy most of mine at TJ Maxx, Marshall's, and Ross. Off season you can get some good deals.
my running shorts are now too big? Oh well. Some problems are nice to have!
and I've given away all of my size L and XL tees. I have plenty in medium. I'm not going to need those larger shirts ever again!
