The time has finally come to announce the lasted addition to the blog… Laura Lily Fitness! Each month I’ll be partnering with my favorite activewear brands to share my favorite looks, workout and progress. From one chick to another, I want to inspire you to get that booty to the gym and look good when you go 😉
I have always had an active lifestyle and over the last few months I have really stepped up my fitness game. No more excuses, I am finally implementing a plan to get the results I have always wanted: flatter stomach, trimmed waist, bigger booty. However, the purpose of my workouts isn’t solely to physically change my body. This entire lifestyle change has helped me become more aware of my habits, especially my diet. Don’t get me wrong, I still indulge ( I ate a cookie as I started writing this post.) Now I just do it in moderation.
My mom was an aerobics instructor when she was my age and my sister is a fitness model – all the more motivation to get my butt into shape, right!? Trust me, I can be so lazy at times it’s hard. It’s just about finding the right motivation. Right now mine is pushing aside all excuses and imagining running into my ex at the beach this summer. Totally kidding. Over the past year I got sick of being insecure about things I am perfectly capable of changing (example: my stomach.) No more letting insecurities stand in the way of what I want to wear and dating the guys I want to date. Dammit! But in all seriousness, this new found love of fitness has got me feeling extra confident AND taking much better care of myself. I sleep better, eat healthier and overall have a much more positive outlook on life.
PLUS, going to the gym 3-4 times a week also means that I get to invest in more ACTIVE WEAR! It is such a great feeling when you feel fly at the gym. And as my muscles get stronger, my form gets better, and my confidence builds, I am willing to take more and more changes with my fitness fashion. (That is totally going to be my new hashtag btw: #fitnessfashion.) Now I get excited about shopping for new and unique looks to wear to the gym.
You all know I am a major fan of Adore Me’s lingerie collection (and I am about to swoop up a ton of their new swimwear line coming out next month!) So try and contain your excitement when I tell you that they also have an ACTIVEWEAR LINE!!!! OMG!!!! LOL. Yeah, I had the same exact reaction. I am super picky when it comes to the clothes I work out in. They have to look good and be good quality. Adore Me definitely hit both of those points. Looking good at the gym only motivates me to work harder because when you look good, you feel good!
I’ve gotten so many compliments wearing these sets to the gym. Full disclosure: I wore these shorts to a training session and did not even realize they are sheer on the side until half way into my work out!! Bomb.com detailing if you ask me! So get ready, because in honor of the launch of the Laura Lily Fitness section, I’ve teamed up with Adore Me to giveaway a $100 shopping spree!!! To enter, just follow the steps below!! I’ll draw a random winner on March 10th and announce them right here on the blog!
**UPDATE** We have a winner! Rajee P. please check your email! Thank you to everyone who entered! I’ll have another fitness giveaway coming up on the blog next week!
