The Garrott Tee: Look #7-Get In Shape Girl

Get in Shape Girl...more like Get a Laugh Girl!
I give you 110% of my permission to laugh at me and my jack-assory all the way thru this post.
Me, working out, exercise...my coordination doesn't really allow for grace to be involved with that combination.

Sooooooooooo here we go...
1,2,3, and 4 and Kick, and Kick, and squat, and Kick!

This time I took the Garrott Tee to the gym!

While I'm not in the gym in these particular shots, I assure you I am freshly sweaty and stinky from being at a workout class in these photos...so here, this is what I look like right after burning 310calories doing an 80's aerobics workout.  SWEAT!

If you've been following me on Twitter, catching some of my random sidenotes here in this blog, or just watching me in real life (yikes!), you know that I'm a wee bit obsessed with self appearance.  I blame it on the fashion industry and having to put on dresses at work almost daily.  If a dress doesn't zip up its a bit of a blow to the ol' self esteem.  If it does zip and its tight, just as bad--it might as well not zip.
I like to put the dresses on and have them loose, I'd like to be known as the girl that's not really as big as our samples.  I know, very very shallow, but I'm in the fashion industry...lets place blame where blame needs to be placed!
So yes, if you've been following me you know that I gained some holiday cookie weight I was not paricularly fond of.  So I kicked my butt into gear and started hitting the gym and eating "right".
And I don't see why I shouldn't take a nice tshirt like that from Garrott Designs, and wear it to the gym???
Just cause I'm dripping with sweat and getting all hot doesn't mean I shouldn't look fun doing it!

I find the tshirt to be perfect for the gym.  It's not some ol' torn piece of tricot you call a "workout shirt" buried in the bottom of your dresser drawer, this actually makes you look cute while working out!
I like it because its form fitting and shows off your hard work and efforts, while not being so constricting you cannot move.  In fact, if anything, knowing its more fitted keeps my form better--meaning I suck in my gut!  And that's key to flat abs and a great routine. 

So yeah, there you go!  Wear the Garrott Tee for a vigorous sweat fest, and look great doing it!
Pair it up with some fun pieces so you're not all serious, and hey--you're that quirky girl riding the stationary bike all awkardly!  Oh wait, that's just me!

Whether you're doing yoga, stretches, lunges, weight lifting, crab crawls, whatever, the Garrott Tee won't let you look like a slob, and it'll make you and your form tip-top!

So kids, this is probably something you'll NEVER see from me again, so cherish the workout look and post gym "glow" (er...sweat) of Look #7 while you can.
I will probably never ever be back on this blog in my exercise attire...however, with me its a good idea to "never say never"

Wearing:
*Without my Muse gray tshirt-Garrott Designs
*Black biker shorts-Old Navy
*Black leg warmers-gift from mom
*Nike airs-Lady Footlocker
*gym sweat-all my own!
