|This is why you should coordinate what you wear |
with your family PRIOR to leaving the house! We are pattern OVERLOAD!
I am a VERY routine person on a daily basis (boring I know) so when I go to a new location I find it difficult to do my typical workout. Especially when I am the same city as my family and friends (Las Vegas). So being in Las Vegas for 7 days with a million distractions I defined workouts a little differently. Oh and did I mention it was 110 degrees outside? There goes my daily outside runs....I thought I could work out at my sisters house but I totally forgot that people keep their AC at around 80 degrees....which to me is still too HOT! I did the best I could and found a workout that suited my needs.
Check out my 5 hour workout that left me SO tired but incredibly satisfied....
My AMAZING friend Shana Dahan from ColorBlind took me on an adventure I will never forget. Thrifting! Yes, I count 5 hours of trying on clothes a workout. I was sweaty and starving afterward and had to have burned at least 500 calories. I tried on over 75 outfits people! That is NOT and easy task.
Shana basically took me to a few thrift shops with the intention of getting me out of my fashion comfort zone. I bought things like 70's onsies and "Oksie Woksies" which are shirts made prior to 1990. Every time she picked something up I made a "that's ugly" face but she still made me try things on. To my surprise I loved many of the items that looked "ugly" on the hanger. You can see some of the items I tried on by clicking HERE. I kept saying things to Shana like "I don't wear that style" or "that would look better on you." She called me out and said I had too many rules. Which was true.
So my Lesson Learned: Get rid of your rules both in fashion and fitness. Yes it was too hot in Vegas (still just an excuse not to work out) and NO I do not think onsies are my style (now I do though). Change & personal growth don't happen by setting tons of expectations and rules for yourself. Break out and do something a little different.
