Crazy Pants and Squats

Jacket: ADIDAS, Pants: Calvin Klein (Marshall's), Sneaks: Asics, Tank: Old Navy
I find it kind of odd that I have never done a post of an outfit that represents what I wear 60% of the time. Don't misread that. I didn't say that I spend 60% of my time working out. I simply spend that much time wearing workout clothes. Big difference. 

I was a little apprehensive to post this. You can't hide aaaaanything in a skin tight tank and equally as tight pants. I don't have a taut stomach, the slimmest thighs, most toned arms, or tightest butt... but workout clothes make me feel good. They make me feel strong, flexible, nimble, comfortable, happy, and motivated. I mean... I have never just spontaneously started skipping, hurdled over a random object (those big, red, immovable balls outside of Target, anyone?), high kicked, walked into a yoga class, or busted out in a run for no reason while I was wearing a skirt and heels, know what I mean? I do however do that quite often whilst donning gym clothes. Don't be scared of gym clothes. There are 2 life facts that I often have to remind myself of... #1.) Someone is ALWAYS going to look better than you (in them, or anything else) and that "better" is completely, 100% subjective. #2.) Who gives a shit? I wish I had all of the time back in my 33 years that I have spent "giving a shit" about nonsense. 

Gym clothes represent possibility to me; the possibility that I am going to be a little more active than normal. In gym clothes I park the car as far away as possible in a parking lot (well, as far as the furthest cart drop off... don't get crazy)... in heels, I will circle the lot 3 times to find the closest spot. In gym clothes I don't even worry or feel self-conscious about my big boobs (I have always had a hate/hate relationship with them)... a good sports bra is like a hug... a normal bra is like medieval torture device. 

I had NO intention of doing a blog post when I put this outfit on yesterday, but here you are. Real shit. This outfit is what you'll find me in the vast majority of the time. Crazy pants and loud sneakers. That's how I roll. 

Oh, and if my obnoxious workout gear has motivated you to get a little more active yourself, may I suggest this little challenge??? My friend, Tish posted it on Facebook. She is on like day 8. Me... I just finished Day 2... and let me tell you. When I started doing today's 55 squats... I was very aware of the 50 I did the day before. That shit hurts. 

If you are not sure of the best way to do squats, here are some tips so you don't bust your ass, or hurt your back: 

  • Squat down until your thighs are at least parallel to the floor. If you don’t go down that far, you’re cheating yourself and doing a fake squat.  Go way down, and you’ll feel it in every muscle in your leg.  This will give you a really strong core along with strong legs and a strong back.
  • Try not to extend your knees past your toes. If you’re doing the squats right, you should be sitting back with your ass out and back straight.
  • Don’t arch your back. The best way to make sure this doesn’t happen is to keep your head up when you squat, and KEEP YOUR ABS tight throughout the whole exercise (that’s right, squats will even work your abs).
  • Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, and point your toes slightly outward.
