I have never been one to jump on a scale so I can't say how much my weight has changed exactly, but based on the barometer of how my body feels & the way my clothes fit, numbers in the weight department have definitely been increasing. Oh & I can no longer button my jeans. Yup, as many of you might have noticed, the jeans have been getting tighter & on the plane right back from Portland this past week they just stopped closing all together. Awesome. We are just going to call it the "engagement 15".
I have talked about how much I hate working out on this blog over/under 5 times (starting way back here at the very beginning)... & many more times than that if you have ever met me in person. I just don't like it. The sweating. Not knowing what any of those big scary machines at the gym do. Feeling like a slacker if I have to slow down. The soreness afterwards. And the big whammy - not knowing what to wear!
Ok, superficial much? And yes, it probably is, but when I am doing something already so far out of my element, I would at least like to know that I am wearing the right thing & feel half-way cute/put together.
Here is an example of my thoughts when the mere idea of working out crosses my mind (i.e. when Ty is forcing me to do something):
- How do I support the ladies? Can I wear a regular bra, will one of those "sports bra things" really feel good? How cute could that possibly be!?
- Are panty lines OK when working out? Or will everyone at the row of machines behind me be snickering?
- When does a bra become a top? Does it say that on a tag somewhere?
- How do I avoid getting a wedgie? Can I pick it if one forms? Where are the rules for this?
Ok so yea, all of you working out aficionados of the world can just go ahead & laugh. The only "working out" I have ever done was dancing & there was always a strict dress code. But I'm not thinking that pink tights & a black leotard are going to get me very far in losing this extra engagement weight around my hips.
I don't know who found out that I was dragging my feet about exercise due to sartorial stress, but Hanes sent over this goodie pack of their new panties & comfort flex fit bras & let me just say... I have no more excuses. This is happening.
Having the right undergarments that not only look good but actually fit & support in all the right ways is a game changer! I have never had a sportier that I am literally trying to wear under all of my clothes & I love how well the boy short panty stays put (no wedgies or VPLs!)
Have you checked out Hanes lately? I dare you to pick out your undercover color here & share it with the world (ok, just Twitter & maybe Facebook too!) using #UnderCoverColor & we can talk about our panties some more ;)
|My Hanes #Undercovercolor is: hot pink!|
