Does this shirt make my butt look fast?

24 Feb

Before my sudden foray into the world of triathlon training, shopping was my cardio. My kind of shopping takes endurance, perseverance and strength. Ever walked around a store holding a big pile of clothes you want to try on? Just say no to the kind woman who asks if you want her to start a fitting room for you and it’s like lifting weights, I tell ya. (Technically, it might be more beneficial than lifting weights because at the end you have a cute new something to wear). Ever been on the hunt for the perfect outfit? Walk around the mall for hours to find it, my friend, and you’re burning calories without even thinking about it. Best. Workout. Ever.

Sadly enough, I have not been doing much shopping lately since I’ve been focusing so much on losing weight. There’s no point in shopping when you’re hoping the pants you’d buy now will soon be in a pile for Goodwill ’cause they’re too big for your skinny ass. And since I’ve found some more serious (but much less fun) forms of cardiovascular workout, I can’t quite justify skipping the gym to go shopping.

But what kind of clothes do I need to buy? Why, workout clothes of course! I spent a good 45 minutes browsing the running apparel section of a sporting goods store this Saturday afternoon- which was definitely a first. I usually park outside that store because there’s always open spaces (guess more people prefer to park by Macy’s, go figure!) and I walk right through it to get to the rest of the mall. But on Saturday I was there on purpose. Gotta be able to have some fun with the gym clothes, right? I’m not one of those over-the-top women who wears full makeup and hair along with a skimpy color-coordinated ensemble to workout. It’s not a runway, and I don’t need a fancy outfit to fuss with that I’m just going to end up sweating in. But I’d at least like my t-shirt to be cute!

So, while I wait for the day that I’ve lost all the weight I want to lose and can buy real clothes again, I can content myself with the fabulosity found in a pink Nike t-shirt with silver lettering and a witty message. In case you were wondering, I’m not sure the shirt made my butt look fast, but it made me look fab, and hopefully fast is right around the corner.
