Fitness Friday – new lululemon gear

Now, I’ve been a lucy activewear girl for a while. I wanted to be the anti-lululemon. Why? Because it was the thing to buy. But recently I had one open up close to my house, and I’ve fallen in love with lululemon. Now, I know it’s pricey, but the pieces I’ve bought are such high quality and made with fantastic fabric that washes like a charm, it’s hard not to love that store!

These Skinny Groove Pant leggings are my absolute favorite workout pant I’ve ever bought. I feel like I’m wearing pajama pants. And I find myself just wearing them around the house constantly, too. I’ve found they do a great job of wicking away moisture. When I wore them to a Zumba class recently, this particular fabric did show a little booty sweat in the back creases, so if you are self conscious about that, you may want to stick with a dark or black color.

I also like that they have somewhat of a high rise. I can do deep squats and deadlifts and I don’t have to worry about these pants sliding down. And during Zumba, they stay put…which when I’m getting my dance on, the last thing I want to worry about is pulling my pants up!

And here’s another new favorite (which I got on sale in the store but it’s not on sale online) – the Race Your Pace 1/2 Zip. I constantly have cold hands, so the cuffins make me so happy. It’s the little things 🙂 I wouldn’t recommend wearing this particular 1/2 zip in freezing temps, but it will do a good job with a shirt underneath in 40+ degree weather. This shirt does a great job of wicking sweat away under the arms.

The lulu Flow Into Crow headband is also my favorite – keeps my hair in place with NO slippage my entire workout!

Oh, and meet the Em with zero makeup on. Yep, this is the way I look when I go to the gym! I am NOT one of those  girls who gets all dolled up to go to the gym. I could really care less what my hair and non-makeup face look like!
