Looking (and Feeling) Better While Working Out

Yesterday, I managed to drag myself over to the tennis court for an 8am session with my pro, David.  When I made the appointment, the weather forecast was for a warm day..  Well, I realized as I was getting into my car to drive over, that it most certainly was NOT warm.  It was 42 degrees, to be exact and I was wearing a tennis skirt, a shirt and a thin zip up under my quilted jacket.  David appeared wearing warm ups, a ski hat, a scarf and a pair of gloves.  He offered to lend me a pair of wildly patterned tights from the lost and found but vanity would not allow me to don them.  "Well, I will burn more calories if I am freezing, I suppose",  I said to myself, ever the optimist. After about 15 minutes, I started to thaw and could actually feel the racket in my hand.  It felt great to be outside hitting again, even though it was a bit chilly.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, I haven't played tennis in almost a year because I have been building my business.  Nor have I been to Barre class with Melissa (who is amazing by the way) and my core is suffering for it. With spring fast approaching with summer not far behind, I had better get going and make getting back in shape a priority somehow.  I think it might help if I invested in some new tennis shoes and work out gear because quite often I have to meet someone on a job site early and would have to appear in workout clothing.  I don't like spending money on this stuff but think it is time I actually stop raiding my daughters' closets for the old stuff they've left behind because it is not attractive enough to wear at school!

The next time I play tennis (which will be tomorrow morning at 9am if all goes according to plan) I will be prepared!  Here are a few items that would be great for chilly early morning workouts.  All from lululemon.com.


Flared pants are back in.  I love the contrasting waist band on these.


Darling cozy sweat shirt.  I really like the stand up collar.


Vests are great this time of year.  Would have been much better to hit in than my quilted coat!!!!


Love this rain jacket for getting to and from Barre class.



And these skirts and tops are also on my list because it will be warm here before we know it.

Do you think I can get these shipped in time for tomorrow morning????

Happy Friday and hope you all have a great weekend!
