Be the Best You with Yummie by Heather Thomson

"Strive for progress, not perfection."

One of my new year's resolutions was to live a healthier lifestyle, which included getting back on that workout wagon. After I said my final goodbyes to being an athlete, my relationship with working out was pretty hot and cold. My freshman year in college I would go to the gym every now and then because I lived on campus so the gym was pretty easy access. After moving home, I "took some time off" from working out, and it wasn't until my junior year in college when I signed up for a membership at Lifetime {I highly recommend!} that I started working on my fitness again. I took a lot of classes during my time there, and combined with the workout regime I came up with for myself, I saw some pretty fantastic results and achieved more than that goals I had set out to accomplish. I ended up terminating my membership after some old injuries flared back up and hadn't really gotten back to my fitness path until this year. I made a deal with my sister to workout with her using an at-home workout program we bought, and I'll admit that at-home workouts are much tougher than getting yourself to the gym {I plan on reviewing this workout program sometime in the near future once I've gone through it the way I want, so stay tuned!}. The progress here is definitely slow and steady wins the race, but as I quoted above, strive for progress not for perfection! After all, perfection is subjective. 

As with my perception of life in general, when you look good you feel good. And naturally, working out is about feeling good about yourself from the inside out. To be honest, when I played sports I was never one to be big on my workout gear -- as long as it kept me cool and comfortable I was fine wearing regular t-shirts, tank tops, and shorts to practice. However, I feel like when you join a gym or join a class, there's always pressure from your peers to also look good in your actual gym clothes. On top of that, you want items that are made for workouts with the sweat-wicking technology that regular cotton lacks. I was lucky enough to partner with Yummie by Heather Thomson on this post to share with you their activewear line! I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort and quality of their pieces, and I know they will last me a long time. Their pieces are form fitting yet still figure-flattering while remaining breathable, and even my mom commented on how trim the leggings made my legs look! You can shop their collection on their website at a 15% discount with code YummieRC15 {expires March 25th}, or browse a limited selection on Nordstrom

Besos,
