What we choose to wear can be great indicators of how we feel or how we aspire to feel. Think about it. What do you usually wear when you are feeling sick and want to lie in bed all day? Big comfy pajamas or sweats, right? And what do you wear when you have to present at a big meeting at work? Your best power suit because it makes you feel more confident, right? And what about when you’re going out for a night on the town with the girls? You wear your cutest little black dress that hugs you in all the right places and makes you feel sexy, right? Well, we often do the same thing when it comes to our workout apparel.
If it’s that time of the month, we’re feeling bloated and crummy, barely wanting to go workout in the first place, so we throw on big ol’ sweats or three sizes too big clothes to hide the bloat and accentuate how horrible we feel. Or if we’ve lost another five pounds, we feel so excited that we want to show off our success and wear those cute leggings and fitted tank top that have been hiding in the back of the closet. But why can’t we look cute no matter how we feel or where we are in our fit life?
The next time you you want to motivate yourself to get up and workout, grab an outfit from the cute pile. Throw on that hot pink tank and those colorful shorts. You will see how fast your attitude and demeanor changes. Sometimes an outfit can make us look so cute that we can’t help but start feeling that way.
In my desire to want to help all women look good and feel even better about themselves, I have come up with a line of apparel that consists of two collections- Fit Girl Chill and Fit Girl Caliente. Fit Girl Chill are for those days when we aren’t really at 100%. We are feeling just a little bit lazy, maybe bloated from all that bread we had last night, or exhausted from staying up with the baby all night. Just throw on a pair of soft Fit Girl capris, a loose-fitting “I Am Fit Girl” motivational tank and you’re good to go. Comfy, casual, and chill.
If you’re feeling super sassy and want to wear an outfit that is not only comfortable, but also has lots of vibrant colors and textures, try Fit Girl Caliente. Throw on a pair of bright yellow leggings, an open back sports bra and a sparkly headband and see if you don’t feel cool, confident, and CALIENTE!
I’d love for all of you ladies to check out Fit Girl apparel. Just for my readers, use promo code FITGIRL30 to receive 30% off all orders at www.FitGirlbyMaya.com. Feel free to share with your friends.
Though true beauty is not found in what you wear, but rather through the happiness within yourself, let that happiness shine through no matter what outfit you choose.
