Get Dressed

Workout gear…

So, I’m not sure if I feel envious or annoyed when I see all the moms at pre-k pick up with their workout clothes on.

I have one kid at school and a 6 month old at home. If I’m lucky, I get to do ONE thing a day for myself, my house or my family. And that one thing just isn’t torturing myself on a treadmill for 2 hours. I just don’t get it. Lunch’n with my girlfriends, check…pedicure with my baby in tow, check…dentist appointment, ugh check.

I’m pretty sure that I’m the only mom who puts on her skinny jeans first thing in the morning rather than her yoga pants. And I stay in them all day.

I wore enough spandex while I was pregnant to earn stock in Lululemon…I couldn’t wait to get out of it and squeeze my flabby body into some denim. Really, was workout gear designed to be an all day get up? Or are you just showing off that you have more will power than me to get to bootcamp. Either way, use your last 30 minutes at the gym to hop in the steam room, blow out your hair, and get dressed!

Please, stop making me feel bad about myself.

Unless of course you are leaving the gym looking like Nicole Richie, rocking the leather jacket and fab bag right after a sweat...thumbs up.

  1. I just left Park Slope for upper Westchester 5 months ago and I can't tell you how I miss the fashion show that took place every morning on 7th Avenue. Now I see nothing but women in workout gear, peddle pushers flats and tee shirts (can anyone rock that look?) and lots of blue jeans and white sneakers. UGH! However, I did eye some velour track suits the other day and my husband physically moved me to another part of the store, swearing never to let me fall into that trap. Skinny jeans, Frye motorcycle boots and the new J Crew oilskin jacket are my daily outfit but at least it's better than the dreaded tracksuit. :) Great to see your posts again.
