Getting Fit...(and a giveaway that gets you halfway there)

 Top: Albion Fit c/o, Bottoms: Albion Fit c/o, Shoes: Nike Free

Over the past few months I have really been focusing on trying to ramp up my efforts on exercising/being healthy.  I came to the conclusion that in order to really see and feel results I need 2 things:

1.  A set workout schedule so I know what I will be doing in advance.
2.  Cute workout clothes.  That's enough motivation right there to get me out of bed.

When I started my quest, I decided to do the Insanity workouts.  Start to finish.  I'd seen my husband do P90X in the past and I don't know about you, but I could only handle so much of Mr. Tony "I'm so peppy I make you want to roundhouse kick your TV in the face" Horton.  I really ended up liking Insanity.  Shauuuuun T is much more my style.  I loved that I didn't need any weights or pull-up bars, I could just press play and start.  I loved that the work-outs were only 40 minutes long for the first month.  But I'll warn you, they shoot up to a full hour for the last 4 weeks.  One hour, 6 times a week.  Aintnobodygottimeforthat.  

So I took a bit longer to complete the whole course than the schedule lays out.  I averaged about four times a week, and had to trim down some of the longer workouts.  But I saw changes in my body and had a lot more energy, so I'm going to go ahead and say that you don't have to follow the schedule religiously to see results.  But the workouts kick your butt.  And you sweat like an NBA player.

Now as far as having cute clothes to workout in, Albion Fit has your back.  I'd live in this hoodie.  Not only do they have a great selection of workout clothing (in fantastic color selections, might I add), but they also have a swimwear section that rocks.  I have been eying this little number for a while, and might have to add it to my summer suit collection.
