Wishlist: Clothing to Help Motivate your Workout Regime

Motivate your workout

I’ve been saying for months and months and months that I want to start exercising more, but if I’m being honest, I’m really lacking the motivation to get started. I know when I exercise I enjoy it and feel

I know when I exercise I enjoy it and feel great, it’s just that initial ‘gah I have to work out now’ feeling that I can’t seem to get over.  Especially when I get home from work and I am knackered.

One thing I thought might help motivate me is looking at some new workout clothes, so I have put together a little wishlist of things I can treat myself to when payday rolls around.

One thing I DESPERATELY need is a new holdall bag. I bought a really cheap one from Primark about 6 months ago and even though I have only used it a few times it’s completely battered. I absolutely love this Hype Navy/White Splat Holdall from Skate Hut as it looks kind of like a galaxy print (my fave) and would be the perfect size for both my gym and swim stuff.

Sticking with a ‘space’ theme, these galaxy print leggings from eBay are SO CUTE. I am not sure if I can pull off printed leggings but I’d definitely give it a shot as I think it adds a little bit of personality to a workout outfit.

If there is one thing I am lacking it’s a decent pair of trainers. Again, my go to is Primark because they’re so cheap but I honestly think it’s about time I forked out for a good pair, especially as I struggle when it comes to being on my feet for a long period of time. The Nike Flex Adapt training shoes look perfect for me as they’re designed to be supportive as well as comfortable.

If you have ever tried stuffing DD’s into a Primark sports bra you’ll understand why this beaut Infinity Workout Bra from Sweaty Betty is on my wishlist. I find it so hard to find good support when it comes to plus size workout clothes and I have heard so many good things about Sweaty Betty, I thought it would be worth a try!

Me,my mum and my sister have made plans to go swimming two-three times a week so I think that calls for a new swimming costume, don’t you? I love full swim suits as they cover up the tops of my legs and this Zoggs Modern Aztec Bootysuit from Simply Be looks perfect. The other costume I use at the minute comes down quite low at the back, so I really like that this one covers even more 😉

What’s on your workout wishlist?
