{I Love LUCY}

After receiving a lot of questions about where I picked up my workout gear, I figured I would divulge one of my best-kept secrets. Who doesn't want to know about a fabulous find? So, here starts off a blog where I will share with you that which I love! When I first started my job with the federal government, I was thrilled to find out there was a gym on-site. A facility where I can choose when to fit in my workout during the day, complete with everyday exercise classes & fully equipped locker rooms with showers?! Count me in! To celebrate my new job, my mom picked up a t-shirt & yoga pants from a store called lucy in Bethesda. The second I saw these adorable cotton pants my heart sank: the waistline looked large enough for a 3rd grader to squeeze into. Automatic return. However, after about a week sans yoga pants, I decided to try on these leggings that the store clerk promised would fit my size. I secretly said a prayer and voila! They fit perfectly. You know, the kind of pants that suck in the middle and accent the rear (the kind all of us women hold sacred). I have since been back quite a few times and have LOVED every piece of gear I own. A bigger plus to lucy activewear is the generous sale section both in stores and online (we all know our credit cards cringe at regular price tags).

So East Coast girls, in keeping an eye out for great wear and great deals remember this, quality is always better than quantity!
