Fashion is important no matter where you go!*


I like clothes, I think we’ve established that in the years I’ve been blogging. Gym clothes are no exception. I need to look stylish while being comfortable and sometimes that is a super hard thing to do. No only do the clothes have to fit, but they have to absorb sweat, not be see through (surprisingly this is hard to find.  So when offered to try these black Dawn Raid Capri workout pants I sort of jumped at the opportunity.

This capris do run small so it was a little discouraging when I had to order a size up and it still being slightly smaller than expected. The one pleasant thing I will add though is that the pants are not see-through so squatting and yoga will not be a problem! They are a magnet for lint and hair so if you are particular about being lint free you may want to bring a roller. With 2 cats and a dog I am quite used to having some sort of hair on me at all times (sometimes I is my own sooo…)

The pants are a very dark black that has yet to fade from washing, I am able to stretch in the pants despite them being tighter than I am used to. They are actually super comfortable and softer than I expected. Despite them being advertised as high waist, I found them to be more of a medium waist. This annoyed me a bit, but I got over it. Overall, these are comfy, stretchy and opaque, exactly what workout pants should be.

The Right Frame of Mind

I don’t know how many posts I’ve made talking about trying to lose weight and well every time I tried to start taking up fitness I did it for all the wrong reasons and so my frame of mind was not in a place where I could start such an en-devour.

Now however I am not obsessed with the shedding of pounds, I don’t hope for a instant miracle and I’m not holding back happiness (and food) so that I can try to lose a pound.

This time I just want to be healthy.

I’m getting up there in age, so I know if I don’t turn things around now, it may be too late in the future. So I get up at 5 am (the only time I have available to workout), I joined a gym, which allows me access to their indoor pool and cardio machine. If I can I do a spin class (but sometimes they start a bit too late). I monitor my water intake because that has always been a problem for me. While I try to monitor portion control and what I eat, I don’t starve myself, I don’t skip meals and If I want something I eat it.

My main goal is just feeling better and being happy.
