This blog post is part of a paid Megan Media and lucy #lucyForEveryBody blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own.
When I was in my early 20’s, I would drag myself to the gym. I never wore anything form fitting and would cringe the minute someone good looking jumped on the treadmill next to me. I was so self-conscious about my appearance and would always beat myself up about gaining weight—which happened a lot.
Today, I’m 39, and I give zero cares about anyone else’s fitness expectations. I am my own person. I do what I want, what makes me feel good (inside and out), and I’m on a journey of self-discovery. In fact, I just discovered I love meditating, and I’m a yoga beginner (again). In the past year-and-a-half, my health has been a major concern of mine, and I’ve made a lot of changes for the better.
My body is different now, too. I may have lost a few pounds, but the actual shape of it is not the same. I’ve heard that happens as you get older. I’m not afraid of this. In fact, I welcome it and am adjusting to it. When I look for activewear, I have a whole different mind set, and I’m more selective. Not only am I looking for quality workout gear that will last, but I need something versatile; one day I’m into yoga, and the next day I’m headed out for a walk. The activewear needs to be crazy comfortable, too.
It’s been hard to find a brand that can check off all or most of those boxes. But recently, I was introduced to lucy Activewear. They launched their Extended Sizes line this year, where you’ll find a high-quality selection of lucy’s best-selling tees, tanks, tunics, leggings, yoga pants and wraps in sizes 1X-3X. I couldn’t wait to try them out!
I was honestly impressed by what I wore. The outfit was perfect for yoga, and I could even wear the top out afterwards…which I did. I slipped off the leggings and threw on my denim jeans after yoga to grab a bite to eat.
What I’m wearing: Yoga Girl Tunic in Black (1X) and Studio Hatha Capri Legging in Fig Mod Print (1X).
We all know that not all women’s bodies are made the same. The lucy Activewear Extended Sizes line was created with the belief that “all women are more alike than different, that confidence has no boundaries, and everybody and every body deserve to feel strong and luxurious when they work out.”
I’m a true believer that strong is beautiful, and I can appreciate the work they are doing to create high-performance activewear. I feel like no matter where you are in your health endeavors, discovering what works for you is key to living a confident lifestyle.
