Getting Fit Shopping Guide

As I mentioned earlier this month, I am focusing on self care.  To fulfill the physical dimension of self care, I am focusing on improving my health though diet and exercise. I am trying a new group class and I have revamped my diet. While I have all the gear I need, I am going to share some of my favorite get fit picks.

Athletic gear and workout guide

If  you want to look cute but still covered, there are tons of  athletic wear options. I really like the look of the mesh panels on these (1) Nike bottoms.  If Nike isn't your thing, Gap also has a really nice pair. Calvin Klein and  Zella have really cute options in plus sizes.

I don't like shirts that are too clingy when I work out, so I am drawn to this (2) Nike Dri-fit Tank available in plus size too. If you are on a budget, Old Navy has a top that is super cute and is currently on sale.

You might have noticed I have a thing for black athletic gear. While I love the black, (3) these shoes come in a variety of colors.  I also really like these, these, and these.

I own this (4) scale and I love it. It connects to an app on my smart phone so I can see the trends in my weight gain and losses. It is a bit of investment, but it is worth the price.  For those of you that love Fitbit, they have their own smart scale.

When it comes to working out, I am not very good at coming up with a workout routine. I prefer to either use the elliptical or take classes. Of course, I'm one of those back row lurkers. I always try to find the spot where I can just blend in.

For those that can't go to the gym or studio, there are tons of at home options. Not being in the best shape, I stick to the easier workout videos. I'm really loving this Barre3 DVD. If you want a good ab workout and a good laugh check out Hip Hop Abs. I also really love Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred.

I'm always on the lookout for the newest and the best products available. Is there a brand of athletic gear or a workout that you love? I'd love to hear your recommendations.
