Since I’m on a financially forced fertility treatment break, I’ve promised myself to go back to the gym. The biggest motivator behind this being that if I am possibly going to spend upwards of $10,000 to have a baby, I will do everything I can to be in the best place I possibly can be health wise. I’ve already started a lot of that. I’ve quit smoking and I’m taking my prescriptions and vitamins daily. Now it’s the harder things. Watching what I eat and the gym. My goal right now is just to not eat out as frequently (2 birds, 1 stone with this one. Save money and lose weight) and try to make it to the gym every day. Or at least get in 10,000 steps. Realistically I know I won’t make it every day, but I can try.
Anyway, because of this I’ve been looking at actually purchasing some gym clothes. Mainly because yoga pants suck for the elliptical, and my crappy cheap shoes make my feet burn about 20 minutes in. So far this is the list I have:
- Old Navy Compression Capri’s or these, or both!
- Active Drapey Top. Perfect for walking into the gym and when leaving.
- Racerback Tank
- Compression Tank
- RUNNING SHOES! Either of these 4 pairs: Brooks, Mizuno, Asics, or Nike. My issue is my feet are super wide and I have a high arch, so it limits my options.
Anything I’m leaving out? My first 2 must have’s right now are pants and shoes. Everything else can wait. But feet burning and pants falling down make it really hard to keep moving on the elliptical the way I want.
