The SWEAT life- "streaking" with lululemon.
OK fun fact: I LOVE sweating.
Actually hold up, I hate sweating when I'm not supposed to. Like nothing worse than darkening a grey top at an outside table at brunch. Or a damp upper lip and back on a daytime date.
However when I have my gym gear on and it's time to work... I go into beast mode and don't stop until I'm DRIPPING. If I'm not drenched post workout, I'm not satisfied. For me it's not even about weight loss, I'm currently just maintaining my weight and tone, but I will always aim for that daily sweat sesh.
Sweating just feels so damn good you know? And the benefits are endless: it opens up your pores to rid your body of toxins in the most natural way. It also stimulates the production of endorphins and releases other beneficial hormones... so, byeee pent up tension and anxiety.
Lately my gym sessions look a bit like this: short bursts of high intensity cardio for 20-25 mins -- the stair master is my go-to... it gets my heart rate up immediately (and gets my ass toned real quick). I top it off with core strengthening and light weights. I even hop in the sauna when I'm finished to sweat out as muchhh as I can.
NOW, does anyone else feel like it's easier to go to the gym when you're dressed like a BA? More specifically, workout gear designed for performance and SWEAT.
I'm not big on spending a ton of money on clothes, however I will splurge on my leggings for a few reasons:
1. I feel sexy and confident in quality workout gear.
3. The right kind of fabric & fit will flatter your figure.
4. Fabric designed for performance is SUPER lightweight and quick drying.
5. They're comfortable and I live in them.
I recently tried out the new lululemon NULUX line (the Fast and Free Crop and Fast and Free Bra)... I instantly knew my CC was in trouble. I left the store with 3 new leggings, a couple bras and a new crop top.
GUYS, this new line. I'll try to explain how this fabric feels...
Have you ever been streaking before?
Ya me neither *nose grows*
Well now you can experience what streaking feels like, without actually being naked...
NULUX is a NAKED SENSATION fabric that gives you unbelievably flattering coverage at the same time. I must say I've never felt so liberated working out before;)
I'm obsessed with the high waist fit as it gives you that little extra synch and tucks everything in, if you know what I mean.
