There is nothing more discouraging than deciding to get in shape and realizing you can’t fit any of your old gym clothes. Literally y’all, I am working out so that I can fit into my sports bra.

My jogging/walking outfits are embarrassing. Today I just threw on a top and a bottom that looked relatively absorbent, topped it off with a GAP baseball cap and hit the road. I don’t have a fannypack (because well, for the same reason you don’t) so my blackberry was bulging from my capri sweatpants pocket. And the tennis shoes I was wearing — let’s just say there may be some photos of me wearing these same tennis shoes in college. During my cool down I passed another jogger – a very fit woman wearing a very cute jogging suit, and I was envious. Not of her figure, but of her color coordination. Yet I refuse to go out and buy cute workout clothes when I have perfectly good ones collecting dust at home.

Exhale… I’m gonna keep my head up though because in the words of the great philosopher Justin Timberlake, I gotta “get my sexy ONNNNN!” Operation Get Fine in ’09 is going well so far. Wish me luck!

    I Keep a box of clothes that hope to fit into one day. Every so often, I try them on again– either to celebrate fitting into something, or to remind me to get back in shape. I am down with Operation Get Fine 09- Sign me up!

    You should get some new sneakers. You need the support and the cushion when you’re walking. And I can sew you a fanny pack. LOL

    Monique, I feel you on the old clothes, it is a must have – what other motivation will you get? In my case, it includes outfits that, even if I could get back into them, I really shouldnt due to the amount of time that has lapsed since they were in style. As for the “get sexy” plan, I am all for it. But do buy a good bra and sneakers, or you’ll be all fine and stuff with bruised boobies and an ankle cast.
