It’s been 10 weeks since I took the necessary steps to living a more active life. In the months leading up to this decision, my eating habits were terrible, my physical movement was quite close to zero and as a result I lived in a state of semi permanent exhaustion.
Although I am naturally lean, I felt heavy and started noticing how I would hug my stomach while standing or driving in an unconscious effort to hide it. Weird hey? But that’s when I realised that something in my life had to change
Now 10 weeks in, I work out regularly (although I haven’t caught up in the diet department yet) and everything about my body has improved. My muscles are stronger, my skin is better and I’m better at understanding it. I have a ton of energy and the regular constipation which I suffered from is now a thing of the past.
Since exercise has become a big part of my lifestyle, workout clothing has become equally important to me. At first, being new to the game meant that I could go in almost anything, as long as it was decent, however after some time I realised that it was better for me and the people around me to not have to witness my falling leggings.
With all of that, here are the top 7 items on workout wishlist right now.
During an intense cardio session, your breasts can bounce around 100 times a minute. Needless to say, supporting your girls should be high on your list of priorities.
Highwaist lightweight tights
At least when it comes to highwaist bottoms you never really have to worry about flashing.
Morning temperatures have dropped and a cute fleece top is a great way to look chic while covered up.
Gym gloves offer the perfect protection from blisters that can be caused by lifting weights.
I don’t know about you but I’ve lost count to the number of times I’ve forgotten my phone on the treadmill. With an arm pouch, you can almost always guarantee its safety.
Great for yoga.
Your playlist is as important to your workout life as any of your accessories, so listen to your favourite beats without the hassel of ear phone wires getting in the way.
