The clothes make the girl

Monday, August 04, 2014

I had a strange experience at the gym today. Instead of my usual uniform of sweats and a t-shirt, I donned a lovely lycra-ish, workout top and some workout capris. I KNOW!!! What was I thinking!!! I am going to be honest with you, this was a BIG step for me...HUGE even!! I felt self-conscious and overly obsessed with my saddle bags at first, but I said SCREW IT! THIS IS YOU AND YOU ARE AWESOMEish! Out I went. Now, in spite of my suspicions, I am pretty sure no one was looking at me with the same eyes I was. Either way...I didn't care. I jumped on that elliptical and went to town. Then a funny thing happened. I started to feel pretty. Downright sexy, even! Wut??? The clothes were feminine and fitted. I showed my arms, butt and (gor!) cleavage! Suddenly, the figure that I was self-conscious about, became one that I wanted to take care of. I left the gym feeling good about myself, what I was doing for my health, and motivated to wear those lady clothes and make them look fiiiiiine!

Here are a few really lousy photos of my gym wear. Yes, that is ruching!!
