Let me start off by saying no matter what my weight is, I’m going to make the best of it.

I’m still going full steam ahead trying to reach my fitness goals.  I had a minor setback (HERE) but I’m still standing.  I’ve also stepped up my workout game (HERE) to 4 to 5 days a week.  Now that I’m working out more, I need more workout clothes unless I want to wash every day.  I also don’t want to look like I was pulled out of a drain.  My body is also a work in progress so I have to skip out on the cute crop tops and short shorts.  I’ve managed to find some super cute, comfortable and cool workout clothes for moms.
