There is no accounting for the taste of people who make women's exercise underwear.

Wednesday, April 01, 2015

I suddenly decided to pinch pennies after spending $2000 on a treadmill and mat and $174 on a scythe. So I bought cheap sports underwear. Good quality fabric, but in the UGLIEST colors imaginable... matte neon-ey yellow-green with SHINEY magenta wide lace. WHO designed this stuff but some man who was colorblind and had absolutely zero fashion sense?

(Says I, the woman who used to prance around on stage dressed like Pebbles, with a bone in her hair back when I was in a punk band? If I think this stuff is hideous, EVERYONE thinks this stuff is hideous.)

But it was really, really cheap. And I could rationalize it. No one will ever see it, right? Because it's not like I will be running on the road in my underwear. And I will not be this size FOREVER, right?

Go figure. My husband LOVES it. When I lose ten pounds, he wants me to buy the exact same color combination in a smaller size.

    Still giggling! Personally if it was cheap and it FEELS good I'd be grateful that the hubster loves it and wear it with pride!! There's no accounting for taste LOL!

    Well, I'll betcha' would have never guessed that. Not sure whatcha' want to do with this new found knowledge. Well, at least you are going to be able to get back in shape on a great machine and I'll bet you are going to lose that 10 lbs. so fast that that underwear will still be on sale in your new size. Happy Trails and you've got this!

    The treadmill I understood. The mat I understood. The scythe I'm still scratching my head about. Care to explain (ooops, now I see an earlier blog post that just may have the answer. As soon as I post this, I'll toddle over and see what that is all about)?

    Glad you found clothing that fits and is comfortable, and that you can be spotted at ten paces glowing in the dark. I imagine that is good for those early morning winter runs.

    Lovely that you have such a supportive husband.

    LOL - I guess the combo says something to the male of the species! Enjoy the fact that he loves you in the new undies!

    Your husband isn't color-blind; he's a man blinded by love. And if he isn't blinded by love, he's one of those men who's been away at sea a long time...
