Never underestimate the power of active wear. For the past six months, I’ve been dealing with this bum ankle. You know, the one I severely sprained in San Diego. Regardless, I’ve been on a health journey, complete with it’s ups and downs. But, the minute I put on my activewear, something just clicks inside of me. I know it’s time to get down to business.

When was the last time you went shopping for workout gear? I’ve written about the struggle when it comes to finding plus size active wear. Yeah, it bites. Well, long gone are the days of working out in a t-shirt and sweatpants that weren’t meant for today’s active woman. I was recently introduced to Kohl’s Tek Gear collection and I am officially a fan.
A few weeks ago, I posted “Let the Journey Begin to a Healthier Me,” detailing the beginning of my fitness journey. Then on Facebook, I asked if you guys were interested in me recapping what I’m up to. And some of you said yes, so here we go! Now, I’m in no way, shape, or form a medical professional. I’m only sharing what is working for me and my body. Just thought I’d throw that out there. And before we go any further, my goal, since day one is to live a healthy and strong life. It’s not and never has been about a number on the scale.
How many of you are tired of people assuming that just because we wear plus sizes, that we aren’t active? I’m sick of it. You and I both know that’s a myth that needs to be squashed right now. Not only do we workout, but we also do yoga, lift weights, go hiking, swim, do pilates, attend dance classes and more. We not only want a healthy body, but we also want stylish and funtioning plus size activewear.
As a blogger, writing about your health, fitness, and food habits can be a little tricky. In fact, my friend and I were talking the other day about being “that person.” You know the one who constantly talks about going to the gym, posts pics of their smoothies and meals, or even selfies when working out. Are you guilty of being “that person?” Well, I’m not ashamed to say that I just might become “that person” and not feel one ounce of bad about it.
It’s not a trick question or anything…I’ll just go ahead and tell you. They made me sweat. That’s what Zumba, Old Navy, and Rocsi Diaz have in common. They worked (kicked) my butt with a 30 minute workout session! They also proved to me and everyone at Pop Physique that I have no rhythm whatsoever. None.
