I started working out with a personal trainer pretty much as soon as we moved to San Diego last year. It has been such a rewarding process to see how far I’ve come in over a year, and honestly my favorite mornings are the ones spent at the gym. Now that we are officially one month away from my wedding, I’ve been stepping it up a bit trying to add in a few more sessions here and there, as well as incorporating an at home ab workout a few days a week. But with more classes comes more workout clothes (because who can keep up with laundry these days), so of course lululemon is my first stop when looking to add more activewear to my closet.
I’ve been on a kick of all things bridal - so basically anything in white, I want to wear. I have talked numerous times about the lululemon Align pants and how they are my favorite pair of leggings ever. I decided it was time to get a white pair to really fit the part of the bride. Don’t worry though, they aren’t see through at all! I love how highwaisted they are and the material is so soft and breathable. If there is one pair of pants to try from lululemon its definitely the Align leggings. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
I’ve been adding a few core moves you can do at home, which has also helped with my time management (WIN WIN). They are simple ab exercises that fit into my daily routine. I’ve come up with mini bridal bootcamp circuits, which I have found to be the best no-equipment workout at home. There are 5 moves total and I repeat the sets 3 times; it takes a little under 15 minutes, but it’s the best ab workout for myself, and trust me, you’ll feel the burn! I don’t believe in trying to hit a certain number on the scale, rather I just want to be the best version of myself. Now that I feel the best I have in a long time, finding new workout clothes also motivates me to keep going, thanks to lululemon.
