 These ActiveFit leggings are the most comfortable pair I've ever put on.


 Workout Top: ActiveFit Leggings: ActiveFit

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!  I'm not even going to hide the fact that I'm currently writing a workout post with wine in my hand but since it's Memorial Day weekend I'm excused, right? I'm not exactly what you'd call "fit" and I don't have a consistent workout routine...Lets be real.  For example, last night I made a 30 minute drive to town because me and my boyfriend were craving cookies.  (lets not talk about how many)  I basically eat whatever I want whenever I want and I don't really see that aspect changing anytime soon.  I admire those who work hard within their fitness routines to get where they are. (s/o megan)  I know everyone has different goals, views and different reasons for trying to incorporate a more healthy and fit lifestyle but I'm currently pretty happy with my body so I think a simple at home workout will be great for me right now as a beginner.  If you're like me and an at home work out sounds good to you too, keep reading!

 My best friend on the other hand... is basically a machine and a workout guru.   So... When I scored this collaboration with ActiveFit, I called her up and told her to put me an at home work out together asap for you guys.  If you need demos for any of the workouts, you can refer to YouTube where there are always tons of videos demonstrating how to do each workout.

  1. Your Activewear is super. You just look fantastic. I am very interested buy such pretty workout leggings and a neon color tank top. I have never tried neon clothes but just saw a couple of trendy pairs at Carbon38.com for exercise sessions and made my mind to invest in them.
