It’s Monday again. That dreaded day of the week where we go back to work. Well, for the majority anyway.
I find the best way to set myself up for a long, hard week is to always workout on a Monday so that is exactly what I am off to do after writing this post.
Since last week, I have been to the gym on three occasions. I spoke about completing a spin class on Wednesday. Oh my, it was tough. I’ve always thought of myself as reasonably fit but the trainer worked us incredibly hard. So much so that I am a little scared to sign up for another! However, weight training has been going really well. I am starting to build a routine and knowing how much to push myself.
On Thursday, we completed arm day and I think I maybe went a little too hard – I’m still sore today. Leg day today instead I think!
NEW WORKOUT CLOTHES
I took a trip to Sports Direct and had a browse on Forever 21 on search of some new workout gear and this is what I found:
Nike Victory Reversible Bra, £16.99 – I chose this in grey but you can also get it in black. This is a low impact bra that is perfect for days when I am not doing any cardio. Oh, and it is also reversible which means you basically get two bras for the price of one.
Forever 21 Active Shadow Stripe Leggings, £19. These are long, black leggings with a mesh detailing on each side of the legs. They have a thick waist band which is great for holding in that nightmare lower abs. If you are looking for fashionable activewear that is affordable, I’d highly recommend looking at the range Forever 21 have right now.
Nike MD Runner Trainers, £44.99 in black. I’ve been on the hunt for a new pair of Nikes for a while now so when I saw these I knew I had to get them. For Nike, these are pretty affordable and will go with everything. They would even look good with a pair of black jeans, although I’ve never been huge on the casual trainer trend.
I’m growing quite the collection of gym gear, that’s for sure. Stay tuned for next week when I will show you what else I purchased from these two shops!
