Bought Comfortable, Form Fitting Workout Clothes
In the middle of burning calories over the weekend, I picked up some new clothes.
I haven’t bought too many new clothes over the last couple of years due to my ever changing frame. First I obviously went through the process of losing several sizes as I lost all of my weight, then I started gaining muscle and got larger arms, shoulders, etc. It’s been pointless to keep buying new clothes, and when I do, it’s hard finding clothes that fit quite right and take into consideration the whole loose skin thing.
I’m not usually a brand loyalist, but I went out of my way to look for Under Armour.
I picked up a couple of new Under Armour Charged Cotton shirts Saturday night and they’re really comfortable — I wore one out on Saturday night and the other one to softball practice Sunday afternoon. They’re not form fitting, but they still sort of mold to my body at the same time. The shirts aren’t baggy, yet they still show where I’ve made a lot of progress and don’t highlight the places I haven’t made much progress.
It’s great motivation to wear something that fits properly and highlights the good.
If you haven’t bought new clothes along your weight loss journey to reward your losses, you should, whether it’s Under Armour, Nike, Adidas, or something completely different. Buying new workout clothes, just like buying a new iPod or water bottle, can be a little spark to get and keep you in the gym and increase your intensity.
Silly little things like that can and do work.
