Workout Wishlist

Have you read my ‘I Work Out’ post? Go on, give it a read! It is basically about how I have rediscovered my love of working out and what type of workouts I have been doing. One thing I have never really been great at though is having good, proper workout clothes. Last month I treated myself to a new outfit, an Adidas vest and Reebok cropped sweat pants. But I could really with a few new bits to help me out and guess what, I have a workout wishlist, of course I do!

So this is what I am currently wearing to go to the gym. I am not a fan of full t shirts when I am working out, I hate the restriction on my arms so I always choose to sleeveless or cropped/capped sleeves. Also with me having a really round tummy, my 18th month food baby, I really need bottoms which have a draw string on to tie them and keep them in place. Does anyone else have this issue? Normal capri’s, joggers etc even leggings, tend to just roll down and I spend most of my time just hiking them back up in a really undignified way as they inevitably take my knickers down with them too, classy aren’t I! So I got them for the drawstring even though I wanted a pair like all the girls wear as they look so comfy, not that mine aren’t as they are but they don’t have a wide range in ones with drawstrings in them unless I’m looking in the wrong places? By the way I realise how baggy they are around the bum area but a) I need a bigger size for my waist than my legs and bum and b) it was after my mega workout this morning.

Also my current trainers were bought before my exercise hiatus, bought when I went through my ‘I want to run’ phase and are Karrimor running shoes. They are really unsuitable for the exercise classes I am doing now and itΒ feels like they have a distinct lack of support as my feet and calf’s can end up hurting quite a lot during the class. The biggest issue I have though is………..A decent sports bra! I have a Shock Absorber Ultimate Gym Bra but it is from when I lost all my weight and is now too small for me. I did order one when I ordered my outfit but for the Β£40 cost I felt like I didn’t get as much support, or any support really, as I got from my Shock Absorber one. Shame really. I have actually been wearing two medium support ones :0 I know, I know, I really need a new decent sports bra asap!

If you can see in the picture above, I also always wear my FitBit Flex that I won in January. I love to keep track of my workouts and steps throughout the day, even my sleep too. I would love to try the FitBit charge though but I do love my Flex.

I would definitely love a new sports bra, especially the Ultimate Gym BraΒ in the right size. I would need to drop 1 cup size and 2 back sizes to fit into the one I have so it could be a while before I’m in it again. I desperately need new trainers, asap. I have been looking at these Adidas Energy BounceΒ ones in pink. They are exactly the style I need for the exercise I do. And lastly, just for the sake of it, a FitBit Charge HR, a complete upgrade from my Flex that’s for sure. (All items link to Very and are currently sat in my online basket where they will probably remain for a while awaiting funds!)

What would you recommend for me to invest in?

  1. I love those trainers! I know it’s super cheap but I can highly recommend the George at ASDA range! They keep my mammaries in place when I’m running at least πŸ˜‰ #KCACOLS

  2. What about a decent water bottle? What have you considered when it comes to them? I have a Bio-energy Fruit enfuzer as im not a big fan of water on its own.

  3. Great items. Once I start to get more well Im going to invest in some good trainers and a good sports style bra so i can try and exercise… in the future! I have the fitbit thing to count my daily steps which is few but at least I know where to start!

  4. Yes of course I get you and understand you. It is very important to have the correct workout clothes as you need to be comfortable otherwise it will get in the way of your training and could stop you for exercising more and better. I think I’m the only one that doesn’t have a Fitbit. Everybody seems to have one. What is wrong with me? LOL. I might need to look out for it and understand a little bit more about it. I would love a new pair of trainers too maybe that would give me an excuse to start to workout. Hope you get these items soon. Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. I would love to see you again on Sunday! πŸ™‚ x

  5. Yeah I completely get that, losing my leggings and knickers puts me off going to the gym. Great that you’re going though. I will go to, I promise, when this coughing virus has gone…I would love a FitBit #kcacols

  6. Oh what a fab workout wish list. Finding a decent and comfortable bra can be such hard work, can’t it?xx #KCACOLS

  7. Get thee to H&M! Their gym gear is awesome, and really reasonably priced. I totes match the gym Mum’s at school now for a 1/4 of the price! πŸ˜‰

  8. I couldn’t recommend anything as my exercise plans have gone out the window. I love those Adidas shoes – so swish! And yes the sports bra would be a great thing to invest in! Definitely something I’d need to invest in if I’m ever going to run! #KCACOLS

  9. I keep trying running & stopping. I’m determined to get more into exercise this month & would love some new joggers & trainers. The pink Adidas look nice. #kcacols lifeinthemumslane
