I’ve been finding ZERO motivation to work out lately. I THINK about it, but that is basically as far as I get. I had to quit my gym membership a while back because Quinn does NOT do well in the child care center there and the most I ever was able to work out before they called me down to get him was 17 minutes. The shortest was 6 minutes. (did they even try that time??)
I think part of my problem is that I felt like I had nothing to wear. Please don’t tell me how silly that is, since I would just be exercising at home. I KNOW! I’m ridiculous. But then I remembered that free pattern by Spit up and Stilletos that I grabbed a while back, the Matilda leggings. And then I remembered all that extra fabric I had left over from when I made that Bombshell bathing suit last year.
BAM!!!! NEW WORKOUT GEAR!!
And can you believe it worked?? I sewed these up late Wednesday night, then ACTUALLY USED THEM on Thursday!! AND THEN USED THEM AGAIN ON FRIDAY! I’M ON A ROLL, PEOPLE!!! My life is about to change and it has EVERYTHING to do with these pants!
They were so incredibly easy and fast to make. There are only 2 pattern pieces, one for the legs and one for the waistband. I LOVE how there are no side seams, easy to sew and it doesn’t break up the gorgeous peacock feathers.
I made the size M, but I probably should have gone with the L… I ALWAYS find that clothes are too big on me when I go with my measurements, and I figured since I was sewing with spandex it would be fine. And it totally IS fine, I’m just wondering if they would have been better a smidgen bigger..
Speaking of spandex, is that even the proper fabric to use for workout pants? LOL. I don’t even know.. All I know is that whatever it is, these things have totally given me the juice I needed to start getting fit and healthy again! YAY!!!!
What about you? What motivates you to get off your tushy and start getting healthy?
