A few of you mentioned that you would like to see my workout capsule and voila! I decided when I did my initial purge back in June that I wanted to apply the same principals to the clothing that wasn’t making it into my main capsule. In other words, I didn’t want to just pair down the main portion of my wardrobe, but then have all of these other extras laying around!

I’m still kind of working on my lounge wear, but I think I’ve done a good job of getting my workout clothing down to a minimum. Confession: I used to have a TON of workout clothes. I would do this cycle of buying workout clothes in the hopes that exercise would magically become my most favorite thing ever!! Ha! Still waiting for that to happen. I mean looking cute for a workout is the best part of working out, but clothes will only take you so far, yeah?

Anyway, I now have two workout capsules: one for cold weather and one for warm weather. Obviously the warm weather capsule includes more shorts and less long sleeve layers, I’ll share that one next spring.  I usually workout 5-6 days a week so in order to not feel like I am constantly doing laundry I have enough outfits for each day of the week. I mean, with a ten month old, I’m already doing laundry at LEAST once a week so I didn’t feel like I needed more than that.

Other than that, I think it’s pretty self explanatory why I chose what I did.  One last note, exercise clothing is one area where I think putting a little more money into it on the front end will pay off in the long run. It sucks to have to constantly replace exercise clothes PLUS the higher quality the fabric the better it is at *ahem* odor absorption. With that word picture lingering in your mind, I’ll leave you with this:

    I think it’s great that you remain so active! I try but most of the time I end up feeling guilty for all the days I don’t get out. Props to you! Your outfits are so cute too!

      Thanks Chelsea! To be honest, these days it’s usually just a quick 10-20 minutes in the morning and a walk with my dog and little girl. I do the best I can, but I am far from consistent! I figure anything is better than nothing right?!

    Oh man these pics are inspiring! I am lucky if I make it a mile walking around the neighborhood! Not because I’m out of shape either! I gotta get my booty in gear!

    Great capsule for your workouts! I’m actually almost down to a capsule because most of my workout clothes don’t fit anymore. The benefits and draw-backs of gaining/losing weight. Luckily, I’m in the losing part, but not sure what my final size will be.

      I totally get that Shann! Some of my current workout clothes are a tidge too small, but I figure if I’m working out at home then it doesn’t matter. 😉

    I totally agree that paying a little more up front will help save money in the long run! Replacing items takes time too and time is money! Great post 🙂
