I can understand if you despise this new term “athleisure” to represent a entire sub-genre of clothing, but I’m actually quite a fan. 🙂 Yes, that means that I get to leisurely stroll through my day without having to step foot in the gym. If you can’t tell (jokingly), I really don’t love working out. But I have recently received that hard slap in the face that life likes to deliver to you every so often – my metabolism is slowing down and my activity level isn’t high enough to compensate for that. I can’t scarf down a brownie everyday and get away with it…anymore. I have to face facts and now, I need to challenge myself to quit with so much sugar. Unknowingly, this has progressed into an intense battle for me. I feel that it’s just as much an addiction as smoking cigarettes is. In fact, one of my new years resolutions is to always order a small size of a dessert, whenever the opportunity presents itself. I’m always satisfied with a small. I also plan to make this a lifestyle change – not just for the year 2017. It’s small things like that I need to start changing. This battle will be hard but let’s be real, giving up an addiction never is. And yes, working out harder in the gym will do me some good too.
Now that I’m done with my “Being-A-Grown-Up-Stinks-And-Now-I-Have-To-Be-More-Responsible” rant, I would like to mention that I wore this outfit to Disneyland around Christmas time. It was so incredibly magical! I loved every single second of it. I am definitely not one of those girls that spends a lot on athletic…I mean, athleisure wear, but I do not recommend Forever 21 leggings. I recommend their sports bras and their workout tanks because they are great value buys, but I bought multiple pairs of leggings and they don’t stay up around your hips that well and stretch out.
Hope everyone is still having a wonderful new year!
