I’ve lost 47 pounds so far since I started my weight loss and healthy living journey last July!
As I slowly but surely get closer to that “magic” number on the scale, I’ve made exercise a part of my DAILY routine.
And I like it.
After accomplishing my goal to run a 5K, I’ve now set a goal to complete a 10K. I love going to Jazzersize each morning and I’m also looking into Yoga classes right now. I feel so good after I work-out and it’s helped me so much along my weight loss journey.
It struck me yesterday that while I’ve lost almost 50 pounds since I decided to make a change…I’ve gained some things to.
- A better outlook on life.
- More energy to get through my day and play with my kids.
- Compliments from friends.
- And a very real addiction to work-out clothing.
I’m not sure exactly when it happened. But sometime between mid-October and now I became a little crazy about all things tanks and leggings. I can’t even walk through Target to get Tide without altering my route to check out the sports bras.
I think it’s because if I feel good about how I look and feel comfortable while I’m working out, it makes me want to work out more.
But I gotta tell you, I’ve got expensive taste and I love the nicer brands. Designer brand work-out clothing isn’t something I can spurge on often, but aside from the cuter designs and prints they often offer, the quality really is better and that makes a difference when I’m working out.
About two months ago I nearly ran around the YMCA track naked from the waist down because I had on pants that didn’t fit right and didn’t hold up well. The folks taking water aerobics in the pool by the track must have had a good laugh that morning as I kept hiking up my drawers while trying to juggle my iphone and getting tangled in the cords of my earphones. I didn’t want to stop running because I didn’t want to quit, but half the time my pants were either hanging too low or I had them pulled up so high that my underwear wasn’t quite where it was supposed to be. I also might have said a bad word or two out loud. Not my finest moment. Needless to say, those pants are in the trash.
So basically I want it all….great looking and fitting designer brand work-out gear at a low price. I was beyond excited when I heard about a company, pvBody, that will allow me to have my cake and eat it too! (Figuritively of course!!)
pvBody provides fashionable fitness apparel for women at a fraction of the retail cost. With a monthly subscription of $49.95 you get a new top and bottom sent to your home.
When I was asked if I would give it a try, I jumped at the chance! The process to get started was easy. After I signed up with pvBody and took a short quiz to give them an idea about my size and style, I received a cool top and bottom delivered straight to my mailbox!
Seriously. How cool is that? It’s like Christmas!
Well, it is actually Christmas right now. But NEXT month and the month after it will be like Christmas, too!
I love fun mail, a good deal and great work-out clothes. On Friday, I got all three.
Look at the goodness I found in my mailbox? Who wouldn’t like to get this pretty pink package?
Inside I found a top and bottom, both from Nux. The grey leggings fit me perfectly and the top, a beautiful shade of blue, was comfortable and had enough support that I didn’t need to wear a sports bra.
I checked out this brand on-line and their leggings and tanks retail for at least $50.00 a piece. That’s double what a monthly subscription fee to pvBody costs. And after running several miles in this outfit Monday morning, I now know about a new brand of work-out apparel I love. Without pvBody, I wouldn’t have even had Nux on my work-out clothing radar!
Reader Discount and Gift
So here’s the best part. As a Still Living The Dream reader you can get 25 percent off your first month subscription to pvBody plus a $15 Lululemon gift card. (Lululemon, I love you!)
To get your discount and gift certificate, visit them here online . If something you receive doesn’t fit or isn’t your style, just send it back and they’ll send you something else. How cool is that?

Easy peasy – lemon squeezy!
