confessions of a curvy girl
Do you like to exercise and keep your feet moving? Do you like to do this with your significant other?

Many couples and close friends hike, jog and take classes together—time well spent on many levels for sure. Many Americans spend up to 3 hours or more a week exercising—if that is what your ‘person’ enjoys, then the gift of active wear is a win-win.

Once upon a time, I went to the gym 5 days a week. I rushed over there after work with my gym bag in hand and threw on a workout outfit that I kept in the bag. Chances are most days my ensemble didn’t match at best and may or may not have had bleach stains on it at worst. I thought that because I had curves like a California canyon highway that I couldn’t find clothes that fit me the way I wanted them to. I swung back and forth between clothes that were dangerously tight to baggy old shirts and leggings.

I started going to a spin class with my husband. He watched me fidget and look uneasy every single class. The uncomfortable look on my face was obvious. Why? I was insecure in what I was wearing. Eventually I stopped going to this class with him and stuck to working out in the early AM hours before the gym got crowded.

As a gift to me, my husband hit the internet hard and bought several great options for my workout attire. I was overwhelmed.  Not only did I now look great on that elliptical, but I was confident. That confidence was sexy. Is this kind of silly? Sure. But having an outfit that matched and fit was a big deal to me.

This was the best Valentine’s Day gift I have ever received. It wasn’t an over-the-top gift laced with candy and flowers. It was the gift of health, happiness and fitness—all in a box of sports bras, active tanks and supportive capris.

Have you seen the line of active apparel on HerRoom.com? Here is one of my favorites.
