Pants on the Ground

Sunday, April 29, 2012

A recap of my morning: I joined the Official Spring Into Shape Bootcamp Challenge this morning when I woke up and logged in to SP. I'm finding myself in need of changing up my workout routine. It's getting a little boring, a little monotonous. Also, living in Arizona, it's starting to be hot as a muthah when I'm free to run or hike. I had to find a little something to do indoors when the weather is unbearable.

I went to Kohl's this morning to buy some new workout gear. Though it shouldn't really matter, I'm starting to dislike looking all baggy when I'm out running. But it's hard finding shorts (I don't like running pants) that aren't daisy dukes and won't get 'crack stuck' or ride up my inner thighs when I'm running. It's sort of awkward to pull at your outfit while there's lots of traffic and/or you're trying to stay focused on your workout.

I bought a FILA skirt/short thing that was on sale for $16.20, so you can't even tell if it does happen, haha. It fits well at the waist and shows off my thighs in a flattering way. Plus it has a hidden pocket for my iPod - BONUS!

Sports bras, oh, sports bras. It's hard to find a comfortable one that doesn't make me flat as a board. Don't get me wrong. I don't want the girls to smack me in the chin while I'm jogging, but I still like to feel feminine. I actually found a style I really like by a brand called Tek Gear. On sale for $13.99 each, plus I had a 20% off coupon for my entire purchase. Yep, this girl RARELY pays full price for clothes!

Then I headed out to Target to buy resistance bands to start the Spring Challenge. Light? Medium? Heavy? Not a clue! I split the difference and went with medium. $10.49. Purchased.

So I got back home all amped to do the first Challenge video. A few minutes in, it was time for 30 seconds of jumping jacks. First jump. Uh oh. You guessed it. Pants on the ground. Well, technically, it was shorts. Silly girl. I had on a pair of old athletic shorts. Well, not for long, haha. Not one to stop a workout, I sorta kicked them off and finished in my undies. This is why I don't work out at a gym, LoL.

I may not be graceful. I may not be bashful. But I'll be darned if someone tells me I'm not determined.

Have a beautiful Sunday, my SparkleLovelies!

    LOL great job on continuing your workout. Sounds like something I would do. Actually I think I have worked out in my undies (boyshorts) before. So comfy! And I totally agree about the sports bras. I have one that feels like it mashes my boobs into my backside LOL but I refuse to go buy another one until I drop another size. Great blog! Definitely put a smile on my face. I hope you have a great day and great workout! =)

    Bwahahahahaha!! That is just too funny! Love the new workout clothes. I don't think I've seen the running skirt before. Love it!! But then again, I don't have many workout clothes - just some old sweats and a pair of men's running shorts that I got from my stepson. I may have to check out Kohls.
    Enjoy all your new things!!

    I had a pair of my old sweats practically fall off of my rear this morning! Its a nice feeling but at the same time a little distracting! Good job at keepin going though!!! I need to get some more workout gear- esp sports bras- I'm with ya on the whole flat chested thing- I might want to keep the girls contained, but don't want to look like I'm masculine while doing so! You're doing great- keep up the good work!!!

    Nice outfits, I love skorts/running skirts. Something girly and cute, I've added a link to some really nice skorts and tops. I wished I lived in the States cause to order them on line the taxes and shipping fee are more than the skorts themselves.

    Check out this site: http://www.skirtsports.com/shop/run

    Nice! I recently got some new running shorts at Kohls too. I looked at the ones you got but did not think they were flattering for my bum, so I went with the ones with the reversible waistband. They are awesome!

    Great work, keep it up!

    I am doing the same challenge! Good luck with it!

    Super Cute :)

    First...cute new workout clothes! I still get a bit too much chub rub to successfully run in shorts. It's one of my big goals. :)

    Second, AWESOME about the pants on the ground! I went through that with one of my workouts too...I was half way to the park before I realized my pants were not going to stay up for a run and ended up having to walk (since running in the park in my undies would be a.) very uncomfortable for me due to chub rub b.) is still not generally considered "socially acceptable") What a great feeling! You should be way proud!

    Hmm. Jumping out of your pants. Definitely a NSV! (Either that or a prelude to a fun time with your SigOth).

    Love it! I'm doing the challenge too! Glad you had fun!

    The same thing has happened to me in an old pair of lounge pants, and just like you I kicked them off and kept going. I was alone in my living room (thank goodness)!
