Gym time means no makeup, hair not washed in about 4 days and not showered, yet. If you follow me on snap (yourfavwhitegal), you know I ate not one, not two, but three donuts in a row last night so it is time for the dreaded gym. The gym is one of those things, for me, I hate the thought of, but when I am there I like it. So this is my jam today to get my sweat on, everything I am wearing is a hammy down except my sneakers and sunglasses. My sister gave me the pants and shirt and I was like, score! I love the lines down these capris, providing a slimming effect. They also are compression so the ‘suckage’ is on point! I run on the treadmill in these bad boys and don’t even feel a jiggle! Okay I lied, I feel a little but that’s inevitable when you have thighs like mine. I am such an advocate for proper gym attire because it can really enhance your workout. Also, the dry fit helps keep the sweat at bay, which is another plus. So wish me luck, I always fear I’m going to fall off the treadmill like that Taylor Swift commercial.

This weather is such a tease. It’s sunny and gorgeous and then you step outside and it’s a whopping 27 degrees. No excuses though because summer bodies are made in the winter. I’ve never had a “summer body”. It’s always just been a “wear a cover up till I jump into the water and it covers me” body. I hate to make this post about body issues because there are far more way important things in life than the way your body looks. At the end of the day though, your body really lets your mind either be healthy or unhealthy. Right now I am in an unhealthy state because I know summer is coming and I just want to be carefree. Jump up from my towel and walk carelessly to the water. I could never do that. Either I’m having a bloat day where my tummy isn’t flat enough or my thighs look too big. This is a struggle I have each and everyday and I’m really looking forward to a carefree summer body this year. It’s so hard too because I love food and never want to sacrifice it. This means I have to work extra hard on my body and myself as a whole. And I must say, I am still 10 pounds heavier than when I first gave birth almost 3 years ago. It just won’t go away no matter how many HIIT workouts I do. I envy Moms who look like a VS model! Not fair, then again not my reality and never will be. So I know I have been wearing lots of athleisure on my blog lately, but it’s because I am constantly working on myself. It’s become a lifestyle. Mason always wants to go to the park and play outside so that’s my chance to get in a mini workout, lunges, jumping jacks, squats or dips on the park equipment. Today we decided to have the Hudson as our backdrop and have some fun in the sun. I promise I will get some fancy schmancy outfits up soon, when I feel confident enough!

I think it’s safe to say most New Years resolutions of losing weight and working out all went out the window this weekend for the blizzard. Okay well, I know mine did. I literally sat on the couch all day and ate, a lot. Please tell me I was not the only one experiencing this. I wish I could say Mason and I did arts and crafts all day and made being stuck in the house useful, but that would be a lie. That kid was my right hand man in the whole blizzard belly process. We ate and went crazy together! Today’s the day to get back on track and get on the track for a run. I know my past couple outfits have been athleisure but that’s what my life has been lately, more “leisure” than “ath” though (let’s be serious)!
Ps. Snow is super blinding even when the sun is not out hence the squinty eyeballs in my pics.
