For all you hungry readers, I'll be back with the food porn soon, not to worry! In the meantime, this has nothing to do with food. But I feel compelled to write anyway because it was totally awesome and a couple of big 'thank yous' are in order.
It was like Christmas around here!
A little while back, I was reading one of my fave blogs - The Great Fitness Experiment - when I took note of a contest, sponsored by Under Armour and BlogHer. Simply by commenting on her post about which UA gear you liked best, you were entered into a contest to win a $500 gift card for Under Armour. Well hell, sign me up! I quickly left a comment on the post...
Fast forward in time. I'm Crossfitting 4-5 times a week and I have just barely enough workout clothes to make it through the week, nor the expenses to buy any. [Random but humorous side story: I was heading to Crossfit but hadn't yet done laundry so my clothing choices were pretty limited: yoga pants or leggings. Because it 90+ degrees out, the pants weren't an option. Soo, leggings it was. The only problem was they got a bit sheer when you squatted down...and, of course that day we had to do front squats during the wod. Sorry for flashing you all my booty, guys!]
Not so see-through, thankfully.
Anyway, as I was pondering about buying a few more workout pieces so my gym would be a bit less X-rated, I got an email saying that I had won the UA gift card. At first, I thought it must've been spam because I'd sort of forgotten about entering and almost deleted it! But it quickly came rushing back to me and I was totally excited! I love Under Armour gear - its comfy, super cute, and lasts forever - but I'm typically too cheap to buy it. Here was my chance and what a fantastic haul:
Yes, I like black. And, apparently, pink - which is a new one.
A warm-up jacket, 2 Cold Gear turtlenecks, 3 tanks, 1 tee, 3 bras, 2 pairs of shorts, 2 pairs of capris, Cold Gear compression pants, and a pair of socks...I'm gonna venture to say that I'm set for awhile.
Thank you times a million to both BlogHer and Under Armour for this fantastic prize, as well as TGFE for posting about the contest. You made my
week month year! :)
And, for no other reason than that I'm OBSESSED with them, these are my new Crossfit sneakers that I got the same day as all my UA stuff - the inov8 f-lite 230s. Love em! <3
