wish list: outfit for a zen workout

I’m not a New Year’s Resolution type of girl. Never have been. However, January really does feel like a good time to re-dedicate myself to one of my true loves: working out. My very first job, where I actually got a paycheck, was at a gym. I feel really comfortable at a gym. I’m not one of those gym rats, who hang out all day and chit chat. In fact, I’ve been going to my current gym for about six months and have yet to say more than about 10 words to anyone. I like solitude in my workouts. One of the things that annoys me the most in life is people who talk during workout classes. My favorite workout used to be swimming (go figure) but these days I just don’t have the time. My mom introduced me to spin classes, and I’m hooked. Although it’s a class environment, it’s truly a solitary type of feeling I get in that class. I usually close my eyes during much of the workout, so it’s peaceful, like swimming.

Here are a few items on my wish list … things that would make my workout a little more chic, a little more comfy, a little more cool: Green jacket from Athleta; Shimano cycle shoes from Zappos; cute graphic grey tank top from Old Navy; capri workout pants from Old Navy; ta ta tamer bra from lululemon; and a pretty AND functional water bottle with filter right in it by Bobble (designed by Karim Rashid) from A+R Store.

My first "real" job was at a gym, too! This outfit is awesome, but I think I have to agree--the part not pictured... I'd like some more of *that*, please ;-). I love exercising, but seldom have time to make it to the gym and instead have to work out at home (it's just so much faster than taking a class most days).

Jessica I work out at home sometimes, too, but I always get a better workout at the gym. At home I'm always distracted. One time my 6yo son watched me do a Pilates workout dvd at home and he kept telling me "good job, Mommy." It was sweet, but totally distracting -- I couldn't stop laughing as he tried to do some of the moves, too.
