Gym Clothes

Hello lovelies. I hope you are having a fantastic weekend. I had my sister in law Melly's baby shower yesterday but I haven't got photos just yet. Hopefully soon.

Last week in my lunch break I went to my first gym session since joining. I really just wanted to spend about 20 minutes using one of the exercise bikes but I ended up having a kind of personal training session. It went longer than I thought and I had to rush back to work (and didn't have time for a shower either. Sigh). Right now my body still aches as it's been so long since I've done that much exercise and I worked a lot harder having a trainer.

Now that I'm a gym member I have been thinking about getting more active wear. So I bought a few things from Lorna Jane. It's expensive but I like the fit and style of their products. Plus they are a local brand and they last long.



I bought this crop in black. It gives a lot of support (not that I need a lot of it haa!) and it's comfortable.



What I love about these tights are the pockets. I can put my membership card there (instead of having to put it down all the time) and my phone would fit there nicely. 

I do want to pick up a few singlets like this...



I love the back of this one.



And maybe a few of these in different colours.

In my mind I think I will want to go to the gym more when I have pretty things to wear. Plus I think it helps keep the motivation too. I'm also doing a boxing class on Friday night at the gym with a work mate so we will see how that goes :) 

Do you like to work out in pretty active wear or do you just like to throw any old top and bottom on?

Have a wonderful week!

I have nice-ish gym clothes.. I definetly think it helps with motivation to wear nice work out clothes. Good luck with the boxing class, I haven't tried that one.

Sometimes I throw any old thing on, but I gotta confess my attachment to my lululemon stuff. :) It definitely motivates me to work out more. It's so expensive but I've gotten a few things on sale, and it's such great quality (and SO CUTE). Do y'all have lululemon?

Cute clothes! I love that bella tanktop!

At the moment my pants are Lorna Jane and quite nice, but my tops are so daggy. I will reward myself with some nicer clothes once I've lost some more weight.
