While I love every bump, lump, hip and curve of my body I do still try to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Beating the myth that being plus size means you are not healthy is one of my main goals and while I may be a 270 pound woman I still am active, can keep up with the best of them, and enjoy a good workout both for my body and soul!
This summer I have decided to take my workouts up a knotch and have actually scheduled some more exercise time into my schedule while taking my PE credits for school. Yep my major requires activity classes and since school can be one of the biggest factors in me not getting to work on my fitness I decided that this is the best way to combat that this summer semester. I will be taking a yoga class at school 2 times a week and will also be doing water aerobics and walking this summer. I am excited for it and really looking forward to less time in the books and more time getting in touch with my body.
Needless to say I am a fashionista and I like to look good no matter if I’m at a runway show, out running around my favorite shopping spots or hitting the gym. When it comes to finding the right workout wear for my curvy frame I love to hit up retailers catering to the plus size woman and understanding their curves and one of the heavy hitters for workout gear for the curves is Just My Size!
Just My Size carries everything the curvy girl could be on the lookout for when it comes to getting her workout on and here are some of the pieces I have my eye on for my summer of activity!
