I don’t know about you but I’m in two minds when it comes to fashion and getting fit. I don’t necessarily think you need to look the part but you know what, when you are unfit and out of shape like me, feeling confident and comfortable in your clothing does help motivate you to just get started. Especially when you take your workouts on the road, walking track (like me) or even the gym.
Right now, I’m embarking on a get fit for next summer (and life in general) campaign, after needing over a year off due to health issues. I’ve recently been given the medical go slow nod to resuming exercise. It’s been a long and frustrating time coming. For me, for now that means walking with the odd burst of snail pace jogging and eventually circuit and weight training.
I’m also ‘casing’ Pilates and Yoga options with a view to hosting a small intro class with some of my blogging friends, if you would like to join us?
While I don’t intend to be blogging and boring you with my fitness endeavours, you will find more than the odd snippet of what I’m getting up to over on Instagram as I join The Fashionable Mum’s fitness 2015 initiative (#tfmfit), in order to keep myself accountable and on track. So far it’s working!
I also have a little mystery project (#nomoreexcuses) kicking off over on Calorie King, with an emphasis on moving more rather than dieting. Like dressing the part, having a support group and interesting ways to keep motivated, helps keep me accountable . Which is why my latest style challenge is looking at all forms of Fitness Fashion.
If you’ve found fitness, workout or activewear apparel that ticks all the boxes for you, I would love to hear about it. Have photos or a blog post that features your fitness style? Even better.
