One aspect that I don’t talk about much here on the blog is my dedication to fitness. I was always the girl who enjoyed a light workout but wasn’t the girl who got crazy into a lot of the fads. I never embraced cycling, zumba, or anything really too loud and obnoxious. Then, about 15 years ago I stumbled onto Pilates. A good friend at the time nudged me to go and I signed up for a 6:30am class. Ok, so the 6:30am was crazy. At the time, I had a toddler at home and knew that would be the only time I would have to workout before my husband left for work. Despite the crazy time I discovered how much I liked it. There was a time a few months into starting Pliates that I pulled my husband aside one day and said I was really worried. He, of course replied with “what honey?”. I took his hand and placed it on my stomach and said do you feel that? Motioning to the rift in my stomach. Thinking I had some tumor. He laughed out loud. And said “love you don’t have a tumor, that’s a stomach muscle”. Never before did I have abs, and as my body was transforming I didn’t even realize. That’s the beauty in Pilates!
Fast forward 15 years and I still love it. I try to go at least twice a week but, you know, sometimes life gets crazy. Over the years I have had to take small breaks every now and then but it’s always the form of exercise I come back to. When going to the studio I look for special pieces to wear. I tend to favor similar styles and recently decided it was time to update a few pieces so I checked out Albion Fit. They not only carry a wide variety of fitness wear like the half zip and leggings in today’s post, but gorgeous swimwear as well. I adore the half zip style. It’s always so cozy and love the special thumb hole sleeves. Depending on the weather, I sometimes wear a sports bra under it or tank version so if I’m warm I can remove the top. Not only did I do pilates in my gear the day we shot these but ran errands afterwards. If your looking to replace some worn out pieces in your wardrobe I highly recommend you give these a try.
