Since I stopped working in March of this year I gained about 6 lbs and I told myself if I will not start making changes to be active from being sedentary, I will surely pack some more pounds. And this scares me as we do have history of heart failure, high blood pressure, hypertension and other similar illnesses. In fact, I was already diagnosed more than 2 years ago of having a little above normal bad cholesterol. I was able to bring it back to normal when I followed the nutritionist’s advice of having more omega 3 and fiber in my diet as well as doing exercises. But there are times when your motivation is at its lowest in doing the exercise routine, thus my weight gain is creeping up again.
Last year I started doing rigorous exercise regimen with my husband, the Insanity workout. It was really insane and I have seen the result of it but not to what my goal is, reaching my pre-pregnancy weight of 103 pounds. I only did Insanity for a little less than a month and then stopped abruptly. With it, I gained back weight. Then I joined the workforce that exercising was put at the back burner. But I was amazed that with my job and no exercise, I was able to lose weight and even down to my weight goal due to fatigue and stress. And then I resigned from my job in March and my weight went back up adding 6 more pounds.
This time that I am not working and the weather is getting a little warmer, I can go out more for a walk or jog, bring the kids to the park and do my little workout to burn those excess calories. And what more exciting to do this by having a comfortable workout clothing that is really apt for sweating out. And yes, I have the opportunity to try out the Ellie’s Coral Crush collection for free as one of Ellie’s ambassador.
Working out now is easy, comfy and stylish. Ellie is incorporating fashion in fitness. The fashion-forward designs of their activewear can already make you feel good inside and motivates you to strive to be fit more. I had fun doing the elliptical on my chosen workout gear, and of course I chose the coral crush collection coz I love the color and it matches my Nike free run sneakers
Really, for more info about the apparel I chose at Ellie were the It Takes Two Top and the To Dye for Capri. The top is a breathable dolman long-sleeve with a double-strapped coral undershirt. The fabric does not pill as it is made with natural fiber, and its design looks like two shirt in one. The capri on the other hand is really to dye [die] for. I like its dyed paneling design that emphasizes the shape and contour of your lower body and not just give you the optical illusion of having the shape. The fabric is very soft, lightweight, does not wrinkle, shrink, fade or bag. And most of all it keeps you dry. It is mid-rise and whatever run, hop, jog, exercise I make, it will not roll down and perfectly sits on the waist.
As a mom with active little girls who love to be at the park everyday with our warm weather, keeping up with them in my Ellie activewear is so easy-peasy. I can run, slide, swing, and play with them without the bulky clothing. Love how comfortable it is to move in it.
For all of you that wants to extend your gym or workout wardrobe, I recommend Ellie’s activewear. Very chic, trendy and fashionable but does not compromise its high-performance.
